Having Bedroom Problems? Take This Quiz

Lots of guys have problems in the bedroom as they get older.

But most guys NEVER want to talk about it.

And that’s a big mistake.

Because your ability to get an erection affects a lot more than your love life. It’s actually a good barometer of your overall health, and can be an indicator of things like circulatory or hormone problems.

When you can’t perform, it is like the “Check Engine” light on your car is flashing red.

When men come to me with performance problems, I ask them four important questions.

Let me ask you the same… and let’s see if we can find out what’s causing your issue. 

Here are my questions:

How much do you weigh? There are a lot of problems with being overweight, but one of the more frustrating ones is loss of sexual desire. Some scientists point out that being out of shape is the reason, others suggest that poor body image plays a role.

I think both are true. But more concerning for long-term health is the fact that being overweight clogs arteries (and erections are powered by blood flow). Fat increases the hormone estrogen in your body–you see this with some men having breasts. It also drops libido.

How is your heart health? High blood pressure in particular destroys your body’s ability to cause an erection.

How is your blood sugar? Blood sugar has a lot to do with weight control and heart health, but high blood sugar is also well-known to destroy blood vessels and nerve conduction.  

What are you eating? There are many foods that destroy sexual function and soy is the worst among them. Soy contains phytoestrogens (plant estrogens) that can kill a man’s desire. Alcohol, diet soda, and fried foods can all hurt your sex drive.

Your best solution is to fix any of the problems above and you can boost testosterone by making sure you have enough vitamin D, zinc, and fiber. One of the best herbs to increase libido is Eurycoma longifolia, an herb native to Indonesia that has been used for hundreds of years and is very effective.
