Micronutrients play an important role in curing erectile dysfunction and other sexual dysfunctions. Few micronutrients that play a major role in the erectile dysfunction treatment and others are-
Normal penile erection is dependent on the integrity of the endothelium. Endothelial-derived NO (nitric oxide) plays an important role in the physiological mechanism of erection. Alteration in the concentration of NO, due to damage to endothelium or to increased destruction, appears to be the most important causes for ED, especially in the presence of vascular disease. Increased production of reactive oxygen species in diseases such as diabetes and hypertension might be an important cause of an increased risk of Erectile Dysfunction. Antioxidants provide important brace to improvise or correct the oxidative stress in case of Erectile Dysfunction patients.
Fructooligosaccharides, also known as Oligofructose; short-chain fructooligosaccharide (scFOS or FOS) ; Neosugar. The systematic name of all fructans, including scFOS, is [a.-D-glucopyranoside-(1-2)-]-p.,Dfructofuranosyl-[(1-2)-P-D-fructofuranosyl]n.
Source of soluble fiber- Soluble fiber helps to absorb water in the intestines and give the fecal matter a consistent shape. Increasing the levels of soluble fiber in the diet from FOS has been shown to reduce or eliminate digestive issues, such as constipation or diarrhea. This regulatory effect may also be caused in part by FOS feeding the good bacteria in the colon.
Reduces blood sugar- FOS may also be great news for people with diabetes. FOS intake results in decreased serum glucose levels.
In nature, FOS is found in many different plants, including common plants such as: banana, artichoke, onion, chicory, garlic, asparagus, yacon root. Diabetes is a major cause of male sexual dysfunctions due to increased oxidative stress. FOS produces beneficial effect against oxidative stress. Use of this FOS results in increased sperm count and copulatory rate thus preventing erectile dysfunction.
MONOUNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS
Monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) are healthy fats. Replacing saturated and Trans fats with unsaturated fats like MUFAs, may offer many health benefits.
MUFAs lower the risk of heart disease by improving risk factors, lower total and low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels but maintain high density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. MUFAs may also help improve the function of your blood vessels. And some research shows that MUFAs may also benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be especially helpful if you have type 2 Diabetes.
MUFAs have many health benefits in comparison to other fatty acids like Trans fatty acids. They are the best type of fats that improvise the sexual activity and help in get rid of sexual dysfunctions. Erectile dysfunction is one of the common types of sexual dysfunction found in males. Men who are obese and overweight suffer from this situation a lot due to decrease in the levels of testosterone levels. Intake of low calorie diet including unsaturated fats have shown to increase the testosterone levels in males and reduced risk of sexual dysfunction.
Proteins are large, complex molecules that play numerous roles in the body. They work in the cells and are required the structure formation, function and regulation of tissues and organs of the body. Any hormonal imbalance occurred in body due to the development of sexual dysfunction is maintained and corrected by proteins. Enzyme activity also is maintained by the presence of proteins in body. High quality proteins are much essential for the building, formation, regulation of structures at cell and tissue levels in body. They play a major role in catalytic reactions of our body, transportation of oxygen to each and every organ. This is same for the organs of sexual activity including penile and vaginal areas. They also play sensory or receptor part and helps in the cell to cell and muscle movement, thus helps in penile erection. The repair and regeneration also takes place by the involvement of proteins. Thus the intake is very essential to keep muscle activity strong and stable, regular repair and regeneration, oxygen supply to tissues and organs to the body in whole and in case of genital areas too.
To eradicate these problems, one should consult a good sexologist for sexual dysfunctions. Treatment include complete treatment plan comprising of exact investigations, diagnosis, prescription, additional supplements including all required micronutrients, counselling and regular follow-ups.
