Get savvy about your sexual health

Posted on: 13 September 2010 by Mark O'haire

How much do we know about addressing the health issues that can stem from leading an active sex life? The FPA aims to increase the nation's awareness of such issues during Sexual Health Week (13-19 September).

Sexual HealthWhile we should all be aware of the benefits of choosing to have safer sex, there are other sexual health issues that can affect men that aren't always so easy to raise and address.

What do you do if you need to boost your libido? How do you go about increasing your sperm count? What can you do if your hectic lifestyle is ruining your sleep patterns and, as a result, your desire to have sex?

While these ailments might seem difficult to discuss, help is at hand in the form of the following products.

Boost your libido

Eleuthero's reputation for aiding male sexuality has made it a favourite amongst men in the east, and more recently in the west, as it is thought to strengthen sex drive, increase semen output and boost fertility.

Sun Eleuthero® works to support the body in a range of adverse circumstances by balancing the alarm reaction of the adrenal glands, nervous system and other related areas of the body.

Sun Eleuthero® costs £17.95 for 300 tablets (a 20-30 day supply). It is also available in liquid form. Sun Eleuthero® Extract Drink (available in plum and vanilla flavours) is priced £89.95 for one litre and is available from www.SunEleuthero.co.uk, free phone 0800 008 6166 and www.victoriahealth.com.

An alternatively option is L-arginine, a particularly important amino acid for overall circulatory health. It's sold as natural supplement for sexual health, as it has been proven to help increase blood flow to the penis, much like Viagra.

Nature's Best L-arginine is priced £9.95 for 90 capsules at www.naturesbest.co.uk.

Healthy sperm

One way of ensuring you keep your sex life sizzling is to try Selenium-ACE or Zinc-ACE (www.wassen.com).

Selenium is essential for sperm formation and quality, while zinc helps maintain sperm count and testosterone levels.

Selenium-ACE is available from Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose, independent pharmacies and health food stores priced around £4.25.

Zinc-ACE can be purchased at Boots, Waitrose, pharmacies and health food stores costing £4.95 for 30 capsules (one month's supply).

Beating tiredness

If you're not sleeping well you're bound to notice the impact on your day-to-day life. If you're consistently over-tired it could have a negative effect on your sex life. Simply put, you need to get a good night's sleep.

On conventional mattresses the body needs to adjust during the night. This is due to unrelieved pressure, which restricts blood flow and results in the build-up of pressure, causing pain and forcing the body to reposition.

TEMPUR mattresses, on the other hand, mould to the exact shape and position of the body giving the neck, back, shoulders and feet the comfort and support they need. Pressure is evenly distributed thus reducing pressure points and practically eliminating the need for tossing and turning.

TEMPUR mattresses cost from £799 and are available from www.tempur.co.uk.
