These results, published in the German newspaper Berlin Zeitung, is related to the increase in prolactin that occurs during sexual activity and that improves cellular oxygenation in the brain.
These data are consistent with other researches linking sexual activity to physical and mental health. Among them, two Australian studies published in the International British Journal of Urology, whereof one showing that regular and numerous ejaculations reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men, and the other that a sexual satisfaction increases vitality and psychological well-being in women.
A healthy sexual activity is also able to relieve, in a partial or total way, the symptoms of headache, also when it comes to migraine or the worst ‘cluster headache’, as a recent study by the Department of Neurology at the University of Munster has demonstrated, after having analyzed the effects of the sexual activity on various forms of headache in 1,000 patients.

A strong sex activity stimulates the production of oils in our body, helping the skin to stay elastic and hydrated;
in men hearty sex protects the heart and arteries due to higher testosterone production;
Worldwide there are millions of men who, because of various diseases more or less serious, complain of sexual problems that affect their intercourse. Excluding cases due to mere psychological problems – requiring the intervention of a psychotherapist – and excluding also the severe cases, due to real “erectile dysfunction” – requiring a specialist – most of the other cases can be solved by following a few tips that also can be followed from the lucky ones who still complain no problem because, as always, prevention is better than curing.
Often the underlying causes of impotence are linked to stress, abuse of drugs or alcohol, and to a wrong lifestyle. Other erectile dysfunction reasons may also be diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity, hypertension, heart failure and to ultrastructural changes of the erectile tissue or impaired nerve transmission device.
Anyway, for all males, here are the five golden rules, to avoid flops in bed and not to endanger the “sexual health”.
1 – No smoking.
The smoke acts on the peripheral vasoconstriction and by problems of arterial insufficiency and therefore may give rise to “defaillance” during sexual intercourse. 2 – Make exercise.
Moderate exercise helps the body to increase production of testosterone, a hormone that controls the functions of sexual organs and stimulates the mechanisms of pleasure. In addition, the exercise improves cardiovascular functions and self-esteem. 3 – No to tight pants.
While it may seem trivial, especially with the warmer weather it is advisable to wear underwear and loose pants that do not inhibit the necessary heat exchanges in the testicles. The scrotum is outside because the testes, to work properly, need at least a temperature of 2 ° C lower than other organs. An increase in temperature testicular, in fact, can significantly damage the reproductive function of the testes. 4 – Eat cod or stockfish.
Even food can play an important role in the sexual life and experts say it is useful to eat cod and stockfish, or fish in general. These are both rich in arginine, a substance that improves male erectile properties because precursor of nitric oxide, a chemical neurotransmitter of the erection. 5 – Supplements, if necessary.
For those already notice slight hardness issue, it may be advisable to use natural dietary supplements that contain tradamixina, patented compound that exploits the properties of Ecklonia Bicyclis seaweed, together the plant Tribulus Terrestris and Glucosamine, extracted from the shells of shrimp and crabs. This compound stimulates the production of male hormones, plays a powerful antioxidant action and helps to release nitric oxide, chemical mediator of the erection. Then, needless to mention Viagra or its successors who need no introduction. Although a drug born for erectile dysfunction, behind medical advice can be used to have an erection at the right time, also if their cost is still prohibitive for many.
Over and above these simple rules, to avoid problems and have certainties, with age are also recommended taurine analysis, some tests such as the PSA test, urinalysis and ultrasound.
