Can Honey Improve your Erections?
Can honey improve your erections?
Well, it might. Interesting studies have shown that honey – and I mean good quality honey – can positively impact sexual health.
If you have been struggling with mild to moderate Erectile Dysfunction (ED), this delicious bee nectar may help you get back on track.
Additionally, improving your diet and losing weight (if needed) can also help you get longer-lasting erections.
And of course, exercise is paramount to have an optimal sexual life and good erections.
But I digress…let’s go back to honey, that sweet sweet deliciousness…
Can honey improve your erections?
Honey is much more than a tasty sweetener.
First, depending on the flowers the bees have fed from, it can have a different taste, smell, colour and of course, it can have different properties.
Nutrition wise, one tablespoon of honey provides roughly 65 calories and 17 grams of sugar – such as glucose, fructose, maltose and sucrose.
It contains very little minerals and vitamins. So, clearly that’s not where it shines.
Nonetheless, quality honey contains vast quantities of active beneficial compounds. For instance, the bee nectar is packed with antioxidants.
One of nature’s best weapons against attacks and disease. As such, it pretty much does the same when we eat them. Antioxidants protect us and reinforce our health.
A diet rich in antioxidants can lower blood pressure, an important fact because high blood pressure can negatively impact erections.
To be more precise, high blood pressure reduces the amount of nitric oxide (NO) in the body. NO is necessary to relax blood vessels, improve blood flow and ensure enough of it gets to your nether region when needed.
Also, the high antioxidant content of honey can improve blood flow. Thus, leading to improved erections and a decreased risk of heart disease, heart attacks and strokes.
Moreover, regular consumption of honey (instead of sugar) can help you lower cholesterol and triglycerides levels, and also reduce the risk of high blood sugar fluctuations. Factors that can indirectly impact your libido, your erections and sexual performance. (1)
How to Chose Your Honey
Well, prefer dark honeys, they have a much higher concentration of antioxidants.
Ideally, choose a local one that has been made with love and care.
For an aphrodisiac effect, opt for a honey that comes from flowers such as jasmine, marjoram or orchids.
For the brave ones, know that honey and garlic work very well together to help in the treatment of mild ED.
Garlic contains a compound called allicin that is known to improve blood flow. Furthermore, garlic may help in boosting testosterone levels and sex drive! So, don’t hesitate to try this great combination!
Also, for those who are looking for an exceptional product, Manuka honey, a honey from New Zealand is a must in the world of bee nectar.
Research has even proved that Manuka honey is really effective to treat burn wounds. (2)
In general, high quality honeys have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. As such, honey is an excellent tool to help wound and burns healing – while also nourishing the damaged skin.
So, can honey improve your erections? – A Conclusion
Well, yes it can. Indirectly really, it improves blood flow and overall health, and as such, it can only improve your erections.
Also, it contains traces amounts of boron, a mineral that positively impacts the body’s use of oestrogen, testosterone and vitamin D. Things that can only help with your erections!
Similarly, honey is quite rich in a chemical called chrysin. This chemical blocks the conversion of testosterone into oestrogen. Research shows that this could lead to short-term testosterone boosts.
Nonetheless, honey is only one part of the puzzle.
Think about the things that can be improved in your life and try to improve one thing at a time. Don’t overdo it.
Take your time, make new healthier habits.
Remember this: habits last, willpower fades.
Finally, ancient Egyptians knew that honey was liquid gold and now, so do you!
But don’t expect miracles from honey alone. 🙂
Honey is a tool that will help you get your sexual mojo back but do remember to help yourself too!
