Consuming only about 60 grams of nuts may be beneficial in improving your sexual performance.
Men's health has recently gained popularity in the health and fitness circuit. When men are getting older, it is imperative that they pay maximum attention to their health, especially sexual health. It is estimated that the prevalence of erectile dysfunction and sexual dysfunction affects 2 percent of men under the age of 40. While about 52 percent of men aged 40 to 70 years old and over 85 percent of men older than 80 years can experience the same. To raise awareness about men's problems, International Men's Day is celebrated on November 19 every year. While lack of exercise, an unhealthy diet and a sedentary lifestyle can negatively affect your sexual endurance, there are certain foods in particular that can help improve your sexual performance. According to the latest research published in the journal Nutrients, eating just about 60 grams of nuts may be beneficial in improving sexual performance.
To determine whether regular consumption of nuts has any effect on sexual function and sperm quality, researchers conducted an interventional nutritional study on healthy reproductive age participants.
Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, lack of exercise, stress and an unhealthy diet are some of the risk factors associated with sexual dysfunction and erection. About 83 people who followed the Western diet (low in fruit and vegetables, and high in animal fat) took part in the study. Study participants were then divided into two groups: one group continued their normal Western diet for 14 weeks, while the other supplemented the diet with a daily intake of 60 grams of walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds. Later, each person completed an internationally approved questionnaire containing 15 questions about sexual function.
According to the results of the study, adding walnuts, hazelnuts and almonds to an unhealthy western diet can improve sexual desire and orgasm quality.
