Researchers in Italy, the country known for its delectable cuisine and romantic vibe, recently discovered losing weight helps reduce impotence and erectile dysfunction. When Viagra and other prescription treatments hit the market, researchers around the world have been trying to figure out why male impotence is on the rise. It is not a coincidence men are becoming â€œlarger than lifeâ€ and experiencing symptoms of impotence simultaneously.
The study, featuring over 100 impotent males between the ages of 35 and 55, placed the test group on a balanced diet and exercise program for two years. After the time passed, the men lost 10 percent of their body weight and exhibited signs of reproductive and sexual health. Collectively, 33 percent of the males saw major improvements in their sexual functionality. The study concluded obese and overweight men have a 30 percent chance of becoming impotent during their lifetime.
Perhaps more alarming, men who exercised regularly and ate right lost weight in the two years, without drastically changing their lives. Blood flow remains the overwhelming reason why obese men have difficulty performing sexually. Overweight people suffer from circulatory problems, which is caused by sedentary acts (couch potato syndrome), lack of exercise, and preexisting conditions such as diabetes. Exercising improves blood flow while reducing oneâ€™s body mass index (AMI).
To doctors, the results are not surprising, as medical practitioners across the world try to curb the obesity epidemic. Perhaps these recent reports will encourage younger generations and obese men in their â€œprimeâ€ to lose weight. With the surplus of erectile dysfunction and impotence medications available, it provides people with an â€œeasy way outâ€ to a life-threatening issue.
As frightening as it sounds, doctors are reporting increased numbers of young patients experiencing symptoms of impotence. While the connection to their weight is unknown, one can make a generalization based on recent news reports regarding the â€œsuper sizingâ€ of America. Lose weight, in the name of sexual reproduction.
