Sugar and Male Sexual Health

I’ll attempt to shake a few tables a wee bit if you don’t mind🙂…

It’s become a household norm in Nigeria today to attribute sugar intake to the very specific male sexual performance issue of premature ejaculation as well as what we often refer to as ‘watery sperm’.

Our men however have resulted in going on to gorge themselves on ‘anything bitter’ as a remedy/means of fending off feared woes.

There is a fallacy in these notions as these issues are generally not directly sugar-related.

There is indeed such a phenomenon as watery sperm which may be caused by any number of factors which include low sperm count (semen having fewer sperm cells than normal) from any number of reasons; frequent ejaculation; mineral deficiency (Zinc) and even pre-ejaculates wrongly perceived to be actual. No real direct link to sugar intake.

Premature ejaculation on the other hand is a pretty broad issue that has its roots largely on the psychology of the sufferer (stress, anxiety, abuse, depression, etc) as well as such biological issues as underlying erectile dysfunction, hormonal problems and an overly sensitive phal*s.

However, sugar may be a culprit in the role it plays in the development of erectile dysfunction (men who have difficulty achieving sufficient/sustained erection) as would be seen among diabetics whose blood sugar levels are poorly controlled over time.

The emphasis here is on sustained poor blood sugar control among people whose bodies already have a defined problem of controlling the amount of sugar circulating in their blood (diabetics). Not simply because a healthy person with a normal functioning pancreas/hormones takes sugar.

Too much sugar intake however does have its definitive issues… Weight gain which predisposes to obesity, hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, gout, etc.

Please note that ‘bitter’ doesn’t necessarily always correlate with what’s healthy.

Do a bit of research, get some more information from the right sources.
