Is dehydration drying up your sex life?
Let’s talk about one of the purest resources we have…
Did you know something as simple as increasing your consumption of water can actually help you spice things up in the bedroom and improve your sexual performance?
Hydration is an important part of your body’s overall health, including sexual health. Without sufficient water your body can experience serious complications, such as erectile dysfunction.
Here are 11 ways water can help you spruce things up…
1. Get your blood pumping
Dehydration causes your blood vessels to constrict, lowering the amount of blood flowing throughout your body.
As a result? Limited blood flow to that part of the body that needs it the most.
Increased blood flow is what keeps the blood vessels tense throughout your body, and keeps things working the way they should. When dehydrated, the level of angiotensin (a hormone) rises and blood volume drops resulting in sexual dysfunction.
Drinking enough water can make you feel better on several levels, including in the bedroom.
But what if you're finding it tough to drink enough throughout the day?
You're not alone!
Tap water doesn't always smell all that great, not to mention the taste. It's enough to have you reaching for another soda on a hot day. But before you do, consider Ionised Water instead.
Ionised Water produced by the likes of Kangen Water Legacy doesn't just taste better, this electrolytically reduced and hydrogen rich H2O also helps you achieve a more alkaline state and optimal health. It's simply better for you!
What's not to love?
2. Ramp up your libido
Libido, libado, what’s the big deal?
Oh, your libido only determines your overall sex drive or desire for sexual activity!
So if this is feeling down, then so is your manhood.
Dehydration causes your body to release stress hormones, ultimately throwing off sexual hormones like testosterone and leaving you with a low libido as a result.
The good news?
All you have to do is increase your water intake!
Drink 8-10 glasses a day, and you should be well on your way to ramping things up!
3. Lubricating your muscles
Chances are we’ve all experienced muscle cramps at the most inconvenient of times…
This can really ruin the mood when you have to stop, reshuffle, or stretch it out.
Going at it all night long can be exhausting, and your muscles need time to repair. Since muscles are made up of 75% water, it makes sense to drink more of it! Drinking more water will repair your muscle tissue and increase blood flow so your recovery time is faster and you can get back at it!
4. Keeping it up
In order to achieve an erection, your body needs to be working in perfect harmony.
Dehydration can throw this harmony off balance by decreasing the volume of red blood cells and plasma flowing throughout your body. This often results in erectile dysfunction.
Therefore it makes sense that the more water you drink, the higher the volume of red blood cells and plasma flowing through your veins and arteries. Which, in turn, will keep you “standing strong” when you need to be.
5. Cleanse your system
Drinking a lot of water also means frequent trips to the bathroom, which is a good thing!
Each time you use the bathroom, water flushes toxins and impurities from your body. On the flip-side, when you’re dehydrated these toxins and impurities build up in tissue cells and upset the balance of your body, affecting your sex hormones and leaving you less eager…
6. Orgasms need oxygen
Just as your body needs oxygen to run properly, so to do your erections!
A low volume of red blood cells and plasma can lead to issues in the bedroom, as this lessens the flow of oxygen and nutrient-rich blood required to get busy.
So, the better hydrated you are, the more oxygen you can pump around your body through your bloodstream. This helps things run smoothly, including in your sexual organs.
Who would have thought that more oxygen would lead to better orgasms?
7. Don’t be so hard on yourself
Research has found mild dehydration has been associated with impaired memory, tension, and anxiety in men. These factors can seriously affect your mental state, and subsequently affect your sex drive.
If you find things aren’t going quite as planned between the sheets, and you are experiencing depression or anxiety, take a step back and remember you might not be the problem here! These feelings can be caused by dehydration and be contributing to erectile dysfunction.
Stay hydrated and follow these three methods for removing stress from your sex life.
It’s also important to seek help with depression and anxiety if these symptoms persist.
8. Keep things flowing
So here’s the thing…
...semen is fundamentally water-based. It is water which helps carry sperm and fluids to the prostate glands and reproductive organs, allowing your ‘body’ to do the things it needs to do.
So keep your water intake up in order to keep your juices flowing…literally.
9. Increase your energy levels
Too tired for sex?
A lot of you can likely related to that feeling!
An energetic session between the sheets can be as tiring as going to the gym, let alone doing both in one night.
It just so happens that H2O is a great carnal rescue and source of energy. Water helps by beating fatigue that comes with sustained sexual activity, leaving you with more liveliness for your loved one.
10. Soften up
Nobody wants to feel like they are kissing a stale piece of bread!
Dried skin, mouth, lips, and even hair aren’t all that attractive. Saliva is not only essential for kissing (providing there is the right amount), but is also an effective lubricant.
Drinking more water will help produce more saliva and prevent you from drying up like a raisin.
11. Wake up and smell the pheromones
Smell is an oh so important part of the rules of attraction.
You can light as many scented candles as you want, but if you are dehydrated then chances are your sweat is going to smell. This not only leaves you feeling self-conscious and affects your performance, but will also be off-putting for your partner.
So get drinking, and give your sweat a higher water content!
This will reduce the amount of salt and other toxins, and help prevent body odour.
With a few extra glasses of water each day, you can start to improve your sexual performance and increase your body’s overall health. If you still find you're lacking libido, consider natural enhancers like TESTO - we reignite your masculine energy with our natural erection support formulation.
