Hello- as the body ages, it experiences a multitude of changes, some good, others, not so much. From the sudden weight gain to the lack of sexual desires, men and women outside their middle ages suffer from new dilemmas. A healthy body requires proper dieting and exercising, and a healthy sex life too requires a proper stream of hormones to keep an erection hard. But as men their bodies produce less and less hormones, resulting in less and less sex. You can also treat impotence by altering your lifestyle in a number of ways: eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. Consumption of fatty foods leads to the production of plaque that clogs arteries and blocks the flow of blood to the heart. This plaque can also block the arteries leading to the genitals, interfering with the ability to achieve an erection. Include pumpkin seeds, bee pollen or royal jelly in your diet. Avoid alcohol, especially before sexual encounters. Be sure to maintain a regular exercise regiment.
