Erectile dysfunction is a serious condition that affects more men than we realize. ED can be caused by a number of medical issues or it can manifest because of certain lifestyle choices ranging from alcohol addiction to poor sleeping habits.
Unfortunately, as a man ages, his chances of getting this condition increase as well. The good news is that ED can be treated with juicing.
Juicing alone is not going to cure ED, but it can certainly help and will complement any other treatments you may be using. It is important you consult with your doctor if experiencing symptoms of erectile dysfunction.
Store Bought vs. Juicers?
You may be wondering if the juices we are referring to are the processed variety that you can find in your local store. No, this does not refer to the bottled and boxed juices. We are talking about manual extraction from a juicer or blender. The juice you get from this method is rich with all of the vitamins and minerals you need to treat this condition. You will only be cheating yourself if you resort to store bought varieties.
In fact, you will only get 50% of the nutrients you need from the fruits used in these. The artificial sweeteners and extra sugar does nothing but reduce testosterone levels – a hormone that is essential for your sex drive.
Fruits you can Juice to treat ED
Here are a few fruits you can add to your juice diet to treat ED:
Considered to be the best fruit for treating erectile dysfunction the king of fruits is known for increasing blood flow and reducing stress levels. When combined, these 2 benefits can treat erectile dysfunction. That’s because pomegranates contain high volumes of zinc, a mineral which is known for making arteries and veins healthy.
In fact, pomegranate is also known for preventing prostate cancer if it is consumed on a regular basis. It reduces cholesterol levels and regulates blood pressure levels as well for a steady erection.
Tomatoes are rich in magnesium and lycopene both of which are important for blood circulation. The former gives this vegetable its distinct red hue but it also improves sex drive as a phytonutrient. The latter relaxes the muscles, reduces inflammation and regulates blood pressure.
With their powers combined, the magnesium and lycopene in tomatoes also enhance brain function, treat migraines and cure depression as well as anxiety – 2 conditions that can cause erectile dysfunction.
There is a reason why watermelon is often called nature’s Viagra. It is rich in L-citrulline, an amino acid that our body turns into L-Arginine. This increases blood flow by forming nitric oxide in the body which increases the size of blood vessels.
Watermelon is one of the only fruits that are rich in this amino acid. So, if you want to see the end of that ED, you need to add this in your juice diet.
