Ah, having a healthy manhood is a wonderful thing for a man! When the manhood looks good and feels good, a guy feels great all over, with an extra spring in his step and a definite gleam in his eye. Taking necessary steps to ensure good male organ health is well worth it. In addition to paying attention to manhood hygiene, checking for signs of problems, etc., guys might consider another option that can help make for a healthy manhood: taking probiotics.
Most people know about antibiotics, but what are probiotics? They are microorganisms found in many food products that can provide health benefits of various kinds. Although the term “probiotics” is relatively new, the microorganisms themselves were more-or-less discovered back in the early 1900s by Elie Metchnikoff. This Nobel Prize winner didn’t identify the microorganisms themselves, but he did make note of how peasants in Bulgaria who ate a lot of yogurt tended to live longer than other people.
While the scientific community disagrees on exactly how beneficial these microbes are – rigorous scientific studies need to be conducted to provide a greater standard of evidence – there is general agreement that they can help boost a person’s health in a number of ways. And several of those ways can be of aid in a man’s search for a healthy manhood.
Because probiotics are consumed and go to work in the gut, the most likely benefits are gastrointestinal. This can have a side benefit in terms of a healthy manhood, as a healthy tummy makes a man more likely to feel like having sensual activity, and more sensual activity keeps the member in better health.
But more directly, some studies indicate that probiotics can help improve skin health, including the skin of the manhood. Probiotics are thought to help flight inflammation, and skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis, both of which can attack the member, have a basis in inflammation.
Another healthy manhood benefit: Probiotics help keep cortisol levels down. Cortisol is a stress hormone, and when cortisol is high, male hormone levels tend to be low. So dampening cortisol should help boost male hormone. In turn, male hormone is associated with sensual drive; in general, the more male hormone a man has, the more “in the mood” he is likely to feel. (Some people believe that male hormone also increases the size of sacks, but there is little research to support this claim.)
Cardiac function may also benefit from probiotics, and that’s good news for the manhood. Animal studies suggest that probiotics may help keep some plaque from arteries, which boosts the flow of oxygen-rich blood around the body. They also indicate probiotics may play a role in regulating cholesterol, which keeps the heart healthier. All of this means that the member is in a better position to receive and accommodate greater blood flow, which it can use during the tumescence process.
And there may be other benefits, as well. For example, some doctors believe that probiotics can lower anxiety and improve moods, both of which make a man feel more prepped and ready for coupling. And there is a possibility that probiotics can help boost immune function, keeping a man in overall better health, which subsequently betters his male organ health as well.
So how does a guy get probiotics? Many foods are good sources, such as yogurt, fermented cheese, lassi, sauerkraut, dark chocolate, and pickles. There also are probiotic supplements. But before delving in, it pays to consult with a doctor to discuss any dietary changes.
There’s much more that has to be learned about probiotics and a healthy manhood, so in the meantime regularly use a first rate male organ health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). Find a crème with both L-arginine and L-carnitine. The first ingredient helps keep manhood blood vessels open for increased blood flow, while the second helps maintain male organ sensation that can be lost due to peripheral nerve damage.
