Some men may want size, but plenty of guys just want a harder erection. It’s not that they feel they are lacking in terms of length or girth, but being able to develop a harder and stronger erection can help them perform better, last longer and simply take their game to the next level. Harder erections have a lot to do with overall health so that means men can easily take control to boost their erections and get themselves in prime performance shape. Here we’ve rounded up the top five rules that will get you ready to go.
1. The Science of Erections – Meet Anthocyanins
Anthocyanins aren’t something most people have ever heard of but, for men, these little antioxidants provide a way to boost the strength and hardness of an erection from the inside out. A big part of achieving an erection depends on how much nitric oxide you have in your body. Nitric oxide helps to dilate blood vessels and the level of it are directly affected by how many free radicals you have running around inside. Antioxidants like anthocyanins attack these free radicals, boost nitric oxide levels and help you to achieve harder and stronger erections. So how can you increase your anthocyanins? Researchers have found dark fruits such as blackberries and elderberries both pack a serious punch when it comes to antioxidants so include them in your daily diet. Swap out butter on your toast for elderberry jam and give your system a boost first thing in the morning.
2. Work Out
Just like when you hit the gym to tone up your body, working out to achieve harder erections means doing targeted exercises as well. Performing Kegel exercises can help to tone and develop the muscles which support the penis and regular workouts can easily lead to not only harder erections but also help with it comes to other sexual performance issues, including premature ejaculation or even erectile dysfunction. Best of all, Kegel exercises are easy to do, require no special equipment and can be done anywhere. Simply sit straight and then tighten the muscles in your pelvis. The easiest way to do this is to act as if you are trying to stop the flow of urine. Hold the squeeze for a count of 10, release and repeat. A set of 10 Kegels while you’re answering emails or listening to a conference call will help pass the time and get you in shape for evening fun.
3. Dump the Vice
If you haven’t already tossed out your cigarettes, cigars or pipe, now is the time. The tar, carbon and host of other chemicals in tobacco smoke inhibit your blood vessels, making it harder for them to dilate and resulting is lackluster orgasms, poor sexual performance and a litany of other health problems.
4. Check Your Cabinets
If you’re taking regular medication or certain supplements, turn the bottle over and check for side effects. Many medications and some supplements list erection problems as a possible side effect. If you find that something you’re taking might be causing the problem, talk to your doctor about making a switch. Many times a different medication or some kind of lifestyle change can help you get off the pill causing the problem and get you on the road to harder erections and better general health.
5. Get Physical
Of course, the biggest change you can make to help achieve harder erections and better health is to get off the couch and on your feet. Getting regular exercise, taking in physical activity outside and getting involved with team sports all help in their own ways. Workouts indoors or out will help with circulation, respiration and muscle tone. Physical activity outdoors gets you into the sunlight which promotes Vitamin D production and getting on a team helps battle stress, improves your relationship skills and helps to keep you committed to an active lifestyle. Each of these offers a ton of benefits in terms of your overall health but they all each help to directly contribute to giving you harder erections thanks to lowered stress levels, improved cardiovascular performance and increased stamina. So trade in the remote control for your workout gear and get in shape, in the mod and in tip top performance condition.
