Libido and foods

Posted , 7 users are following.

People on this forum often blamed their loss of libido on prostate procedures and/or drugs. However, in my situation, I found out that foods make a big difference. Whenever I went on vegetarian diet my libido dropped significantly. It would become more difficult to achieve and sustain an erection. On the other hand, whenever I went on a high meat diet, especially beef, my libido returned. A small burger means no more problem with erection for few days.

I know everyone is different. However, I just wondered if anyone else experiencing anything similar, or having any explanation to my experience. Happy sharing !!!

    Interesting. Just to clarify, eating beef helps your libido ( interest in sex) and erections? I wonder if there is any scientific reason for this. I've been on a low carb diet for a while. I eat mostly chicken as meat, not much beef. Erections aren't all that good. I blame my ED on a number of things. BPH, blood pressure meds, finasteride, being fat. Fortunately I'm not a diabetic, yet. I'm hoping by losing weight I can get rid of some/all BP meds, and add some much needed circulation to Mr. Happy. I've heard chicken is full of hormones but we eat Purdue brand which isn't supposed to have hormones.

      Yes, beef helps my libido significantly. Try a steak or a burger one day and see if it makes a difference to you. There is a poster on another forum that posted that a good hamburger gave him instant erection. 😀 Maybe I am anemic and beef gives me the needed B12, iron, etc.

    Hank,

    Do you have the same partner on the days you stay vegetarian and days when you eat beef?Maybe different women prepare your food? No, there is no evidence that vegetarians suffer from ED and low libido. To the contrary, they have less prostate cancers and BPH which kill erection and libido.

    Dutasteride (also known as Avodart) kills it very effectively but shrinks your prostate. High blood pressure medications also known for such effects. Generally speaking it's called early atherosclerosis that fist kills blood supply to your penis, then to your heart and brain. As a result you become first important, then have a heart attack and stroke, then become senile and possibly get an Alzheimer. Vegans, as a rule, don't get this natural and progressing deceases.

    Of course, there some aphrodisiac foods, like very spicy horse meat, etc. Saturated fat is needed to produce testosterone but will kill the plumbing system of your love boy if you are not lucky with your genes.

    Get yourself a much younger partner, an injection of atropine in the penis, and I will guarantee a 40 min steel erection and strong libido + 3 orgasms for your girl.

      Gene, same partner, same food, same cook, except for the beef. I think I might have poor blood circulation, and beef might help with that. I do believe that vegetarianism is healthy, except it is known to cause nutritional deficiency that beef seems to make it up, at least in my case.

      I'll pass the 40 minute erection. I had that when I took Viagra and it was too tiring. 😀

      Gene,

      Do you mean Alprostadil instead of "atropine" as an ED drug for injection ? Alprostadil is also available as suppositories for the urethra, by prescription.

      Yes, Thomas.

      Currently it's relatively inexpensive drug Alprostadil. Used to be Atropine, papaverine, etc. Actually, any vasodilator works fine but to some extent, when only blood inflow is impaired. It stops working after a few years. Then, and an implant device with a pump can be used very effectively. The surgery is covered by most insurances and Medicare but full healing takes up to 6 month. or at least 3 month. There many methods to extend strong erection into 70th and 80th.

      I intentionally didn't suggest Alprostadil, which is sold as expensive Caverject, but rather would suggest much cheaper prescription drugs trimix and dimix. They are very effective, albeit could be painful to inject into the body of penis. Alprostadil pellets inserted into the urethra are in my view much more of a pharmaceutical company gimmick than real ED remedy. I haven't used any of this so far (Thanks G-d), but from the scientific literature learned that they are expensive, irritate urethra, and work well in less than 50% of men, who tried them. Definitely less scary and painful than injections. I belive that a cost of each pellet is $

      I'm surprised why members of this forum discuss mostly different surgeries, rather than method and drugs to overcome the ED that often or almost always follows most of th treatment and generally older age.

      I find it puzzling.

      Injections were used since Adam&Eve and back then was atropine, I believe one dose of Alprostadil, injectable or transurethral pellet will cost close to $80. Quite expensive!
