Sexual Anti-Aging for Men
Ladies, someone you care about has a penis. It’s time to get familiar with the member so you understand more about men’s health.

How Erections Happen

Erections are reliant on blood flow. The penis has two balloon-like cylinders that fill with blood, prompted by signals from the brain. The adrenaline rush of release tells those cylinders to shut it down and let the blood return to regular circulation. Vascular health is imperative in erectile function. Hormones also play a role in the brain’s signals and the elasticity of the blood vessels in the penis.

Type 2 diabetes affects many systems across the body. It degrades the cells and affects the spongy matrix of blood vessels involved in erections. When the arteries harden, cells in the penis become fibrotic. It’s like high blood pressure focused in the penis.

Low Testosterone

Testosterone production decreases with age. However, aging men are reaching their career peaks and working harder than ever before. The symptoms of low testosterone often mirror stress indicators: fatigue, depression, loss of sexual interest. Only a blood test will diagnose low testosterone levels. A physician can guide the supplement of one’s natural testosterone.

Physical Fitness & Penis Health

Nutrition and exercise can prevent (and sometimes reverse) penis aging. The blood vessels throughout the body can experience the effects of playing couch commando, going on benders and living off convenience foods. Exercise triggers the release of nitric oxide, fighting against the aging process. Green leafy vegetables can boost penis health.

Listen as Dr. Aaron Spitz joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to shares all things sexual anti-aging for the men in your life.
