Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common health problem in men. It is simply the inability to develop or maintain an erection sufficient for sexual intercourse.

Just as what you eat can affect your health, it can also affect your sex life.

While any of the things you eat are unlikely to cause erectile dysfunction, an unhealthy diet can be a big contributor.

Overconsumption of alcohol can negatively affect your sexual health. According to a studymen who drink too much alcohol have a higher risk of suffering from erectile dysfunction.

The study also showed that 72% of men who are heavy drinkers had one or more sexual dysfunction disorders, including premature ejaculation, low sex drive, or erectile dysfunction.

Excessive alcohol consumption also impedes blood flow to the penis and reduces sensation and your ability to develop and maintain an erection. So be moderate in your alcohol consumption.

White bread and refined grains can cause testosterone to drop. During the processing of this white flour, some of the nutrients necessary for sexual health are removed.

This white flour is also classified as a simple carbohydrate. Excess consumption of simple carbohydrates can lead to weight gain which will further increase your estrogen levels and reduce testosterone.

It may seem strange to you, but it is a fact. In this case, the water is certainly not the cause but the bottle.

There is a chemical compound found in bottles and cans called bisphenol-A (BPA) that has been shown to have a negative effect on fertility.

A study showed the association between the urinary concentration of BPA in men and a decrease in the number, motility, vitality and concentration of spermatozoa.

Another one study said company workers exposed to very high levels of the chemical bisphenol-A were four to seven times more likely to report problems with sexual function.

Excessive consumption of sugary drinks and other sugary foods is linked to weight gain because they are a significant source of calories with little or no nutritional value.

However, obesity has been proven have a direct effect on testosterone, which can lead to erectile dysfunction.

If you want to restore your erection, you have to drop this slice of pizza. The pizza contains refined flour and cheese high in saturated fat.

Saturated fat can lead to arterial blockage if left untreated. Arterial blockage reduces or blocks blood flow, which leads to erectile dysfunction due to lack of blood in the penis.

Excess consumption of milk, cheese, yogurt and butter can affect your erection. These foods are high in saturated fat, especially cheese, which can affect sperm motility and quality.

Research by the University of Rochester has shown that the quality and motility of the sperm of men who consume too many dairy products are more affected than those who consume less.

Soy is undoubtedly beneficial for the body, but excessive consumption can be dangerous for your sex life. A study found that consuming soy protein powder lowers testosterone levels by 19%. Soy and its products can also reduce libido in both men and women.

Canned foods and drinks are not recommended at all. Just like bottles, aluminum cans contain bisphenol-A which can lead to different sexual issues like low libido and satisfaction.

Rather than opting for canned foods or soups, buy them fresh and be safe.

Your sexual health is as important as your overall health. Therefore, stop excessive consumption of the above foods and opt for those that help you sexually.
