Sexual problems are something that many people don’t like to discuss but trust me these problems deserve the amount of attention and treatment as any other physical or mental problems. Low sex drive can impact both people in a relationship. Because of low sex drive, you can’t be an active partner in sexual intimacy and this can cause problems in your relationship. Here are some habits that you should avoid in order to keep your sexual health high.
NOT EATING ENOUGH ZINC
Zinc helps in boosting testosterone levels in men and zinc deficiency can cause many problems. Low libido in men is also one of the problems that can be caused by zinc deficiency. Many zinc supplements are available these days but don’t use them without the consultation of a doctor.
EATING A LOT OF JUNK FOOD
We are surrounded by so much food but most of the food items are of poor quality. Research suggests that poor-quality food can decrease testosterone levels directly, and also indirectly through exposure to man-made phthalate compounds. So, consuming junk food in excess can also lower your sex drive. Be careful with your food choices and create a healthy lifestyle for yourself.
SMOKING TOO MUCH
