Sex drive isn’t a topic most men want to broach. But the fact is there are a large number of males who could use an education. While prostate health and sex drive are topics that might not be comfortable to discuss, they are important to the general well-being of every man. Take action to make sure you’re leading a healthy lifestyle – get enough exercise, eat a nutritious diet, and take proper supplementation. Your body, especially your libido, will thank you.
Four ways to naturally keep your Libido healthy
Carbohydrates can increase insulin and cortisol levels in your blood, which affects testosterone production negatively.
Exercise regularly, but make sure you do it in moderation. Both a lack of physical activity and too much training can
decrease testosterone levels.
Get rid of your stress, as it is one of the major psychological factors affecting your sex drive. Negative feelings like guilt, anxiety and depression reduce your libido, while a relaxed state of mind does the exact opposite.
Get your seven to nine hours every night, since good sleep is going to help you raise your sex drive substantially.
Top Eight Ingredients for Male Sexual Health
Epimedium – more commonly referred to as Horny Goat Weed – is used to maintain healthy levels of testosterone, which supports libido, helps
maintain relaxed, smooth muscles and promotes healthy blood vessel dilation.
Gingko biloba promotes the ability to attain normal erections by supporting blood circulation to genitals and helps maintain relaxed vascular smooth muscles
in the penis.
Pycnogenol® bolsters blood vessels for increased nitric oxide utilization, which enhances hardness.
OPCs protect against free radical damage and diminished cellular function, both of which reduce stiffness.
Omega-3 fatty acids help decrease both blood pressure and blood vessel inflammation, and best-selling author of The Hardness Factor, Dr.
Steven Lamm, called omega-3 fatty acids “nutritional building blocks so critical to heart and penis health.”
Vitamin D is produced in the body after exposure to sunlight and, according to a recent study by the Sunlight Research Forum, increases
testosterone levels in men.
Resveravine is a natural antioxidant found in red wine that promotes normal platelet activity, vasorelaxation and blood flow, all which support cardiovascular
and penile health.
Saw Palmetto, the fruit of a small palm shrub native to the southeastern United States, is believed to affect the hormones that govern the sex drive, raising their levels and stimulating sexual arousal.

ON TUE 09/15/2009Proactive Steps to Protect You and the People Around You

In an effort to protect the public from the 2009, the H1N1 swine flu, health officials have issued advice that can help prevent and contain the spread of the disease. Since the virus is spread mainly from person-to-person, there is a lot you can do.

Wash your handshands.jpg

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that hand washing is the number one way you can prevent the spread of disease. Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water. Aim for a minimum of 20 seconds. Whistle while you wash: you should be cleaning your hands for the approximate length of time it takes to complete a verse of “Happy Birthday.” An alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be used if a sink isn’t nearby.

Sneeze or cough in the crook of your elbow

There are thousands of saliva droplets that contain millions of viruses in a typical cough or sneeze. When you cover your mouth with your hands, the virus lands in your palm, and is easily transferred to everything you touch. You can also cough or sneeze into a tissue, but throw it away immediately. Then wash your hands.

Keep your hands off your face

Germs enter the bloodstream through various mucous membranes. Try not to rub your eyes, put your fingers near your mouth or pick your nose. If your nose is dry, try coating it with an emollient protective barrier such as petroleum jelly or beeswax. Regular use of a Neti pot

can keep sinuses and passages

My own advise: use natural powerful supplements such as “Immune” and OPC-3 from Market America. It helped a lot of people.
