Stress and libido in men do not go hand in hand. They seem to be having an inverse relationship. Increased stress in your life can make you lose all your desire to have sex. Not only this, it can also trigger erectile dysfunction. Almost 10-20% of all cases of erectile dysfunction stem from stress related psychological issues.
Stress tends to increase the production of hormone Cortisol in your body which affects testosterone levels adversely. Since testosterone is the primary male sex hormone, a drop in its production leads to lack of sex drive and triggers erectile dysfunction. Not only this, low testosterone levels can also lead to reduced energy levels, loss of lean muscle, increased body fat and weight, mood swings, depression, irritable behavior etc.,
There is hardly any aspect of your body that remains unaffected with a drop in testosterone levels.
How to Reduce Stress
Certain relaxation techniques like yoga and meditation can be a big help. Personally, I find deep breathing exercises extremely helpful. Just lie down on a bed and take a deep breath. Hold it for a few seconds and exhale through the mouth. Make sure you take a second or two more to exhale as compared to inhaling.
Repeat this exercise for a few minutes and you would be surprised to see how it can reduce stress.
Another great method of reducing stress is to workout regularly. Regular exercise is a great stress buster. Not only this, it also helps boost blood flow to the genitals and ensure an increase in your libido.
Lack of sleep or sleep deprivation is another factor that can lead to in your stress levels, As a result most men experience a drop in their libido. What is worse is that they do not understand what it causing this drop in their sex drive and begin blaming their family and kids.
Getting adequate sleep helps reduce stress. It is one of the most effective ways to regain your sex drive.
Besides reducing stress, there are some natural supplements that are a rich blend of herbs and other nutrients that not only increase blood flow to the penis and boost testosterone production but also help reduce stress. Some of the ingredients in such pills include panax ginseng, ginkgo biloba, muira pauma, tribulus terrestris, long jack, acai berry etc.,
Panax ginseng not only helps boost blood circulation in your body but also helps reduce stress. Not only this, it also helps build sperm. Such supplements not only give a boost to your libido or sex drive but also ensure powerful erections. Another interesting fact about the such high quality supplements is that they can also stimulate growth hormone production and reverse age effects to a great extent and that too without any side effects.
