The main reasons for the decline of potency
Age-related changes. By 50 male production of male sex hormone – testosterone – reduces and a man can not have any potency without this hormone. Therefore, by the age of 60, men lose a greater part of their sexual desire, and some – lose it at all;
The use of substances that reduce the potency:
Marijuana, like any other drug greatly reduces levels of the male sex hormone;
Alcohol causes great harm to the cells of the testes, which are responsible for the production of testosterone;
Tobacco constricts blood vessels, resulting in poor circulation, including to the genitals.
Stress. Frequent stress may cause long-term depression, depressing sexual function;
Sedentary lifestyle. Especially if the man is constantly working in a sitting position. A sedentary lifestyle is very harmful for men, as this condition is deteriorating blood circulation in the pelvic area, which leads to a deterioration in potency.
Lack of sleep. Constant sleep deprivation leads to a decrease in production of male sex hormone. Moreover, the body can not completely recover its strength, that leads to fatigue;
Diseases of male genital system, such as prostatitis, urethritis, etc.;
Unbalanced diet. The male organism should receive all the necessary vitamins and minerals for potency, as well as production of sex hormones and proper functioning of the body. The daily diet should contain the optimal level of fats, proteins and carbohydrates;
Psychological disorders of potency. Due to the failure of sexual experience or presence of various phobias of sexual nature may cause a decrease, and in severe cases, loss of capacity for a normal erection. Such phobias are often the cause of impotence and harder to treat;
