Male Sex Drive After 40 - Regain Your Libido With Foods and Supplements


By: Matt Penn

 

Most of us are almost settled by the age of 40 but somehow there seems to be something missing in life. That desire to have sex does is not as string as it used to be and there are times when sex does not excite you anymore.

 

I am sure, you would agree with men when I say that most men begin losing their sexual appetite as they turn 40. There are a whole lot of reasons behind that. Increased stress levels, lack of physical activity, years of alcohol abuse etc., all take a toll on your libido. But more importantly, it is changes in your body that trigger a dip in libido.

 

Testosterone is the hormone that governs sexual function and potency in men and the production of this male sex hormone begins slowing down once you cross 30.

 

Though it declines at a minimal rate of 1% a year, over a decade it sums up to a loss of 10% or even more.

 

Testosterone loss is aggravated by factors like stress, reduced psychical activity etc.,

 

A dip in testosterone not only robs you of your sexual appetite but also leads to erectile dysfunction, weak muscles, increased body fat and weight gain, mood swings, depression etc.,

 

However, eating right foods and following a healthy lifestyle can ensure increased testosterone production, a healthy libido and proper erectile function.

 

Diet Changes to ensure increased Testosterone Production:

 

  • Increase your protein intake- proteins like eggs and whey are extremely helpful in increasing your testosterone production. Moreover, animal protein is the best source of zinc that is one of the key minerals that promote testosterone production. It is the presence of zinc that makes oysters a great aphrodisiac.

  • Include Zinc in your diet- Apart from oysters and animal protein like lamb, beef etc. foods that contain zinc include poultry and dairy products etc.

  • Essential Fatty Acids are a must- Essential fatty acids like Omega 3 are highly crucial for testosterone production. Low levels of fat in your diet can lead to reduced testosterone production. This is because all anabolic steroid hormones are produced in cholesterol. Some great examples of such foods include oily fish like salmons, sardines, olives and olive oil etc., Not only do such foods help boost testosterone production but also help unclog your arteries and ensure increased blood circulation.

  • Avoid too much carbohydrates- You must limit your intake of carbohydrates. This is because they increase the level of insulin in blood which affects testosterone production adversely.

 

Lifestyle Changes:

  • Sweat out at the gym- Working out the gym regularly is a great boost for testosterone production. Compound exercises are the best ones as far as increasing testosterone is concerned. Weight bearing exercises are known to boost your T-levels.

  • Reduce Stress- It goes without saying that stress is one of the major psychological issues that leads to low testosterone production, reduced libido and erectile dysfunction in men. Best ways to reduce stress is with the help of relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation etc., Deep breathing also helps. Exercise is also a great way to relieve yourself of stress.

  • Sleep for at least 8 hours- Sleep deprivation results in high stress levels and takes a toll on your T-levels and libido. Ensure that you sleep at least 8 hours a day.

  • Avoid Smoking and Drinking Alcohol- Alcohol is a suppressant and after consuming it your system becomes occupied to clear it out of your system. One of the effects of alcohol is reduced libido. Smoking again restricts blood flow to the penis which not only reduces sexual appetite but also leads to impotence.

Herbal and Natural Supplements

 

Herbal or natural supplements can give a much needed thrust to your sex drive and testosterone levels. These herbal supplements increases blood flow to the penis, boost testosterone levels, reduce stress, increase energy and stamina so that you can enjoy more satisfying sex.

 

But more than that, they provide a complete body makeover for men. Such supplements not only enhance testosterone but also help increase the production of HGH which helps you overcome and combat age effects.

 

These supplements combine the power of herbs like ginseng, ginkgo, tribulus terrestris, long jack, muira pauma etc., and other nutrients like l-arginine and minerals like zinc which are extremely important for your sexual as well as overall health.
