Four exciting facts from Netflix’s The Game ChangersLet’s be honest…
...keeping up with the latest fad diets isn’t a top priority.
If Netflix’s The Game Changers documentary is anything to go by, perhaps it should be!
The Game Changers follows host James Wilks as he shines a light on those who’ve embraced a plant-based diet; from big-name sports stars and Hollywood actors to regular everyday gym-goers and guys like us.
What he found may surprise you!
From the ‘Eating meat makes you a man’ myth through to concerns about testosterone and protein, we’ve gathered together the most interesting revelations from the documentary and what we can learn from those who’ve decided plant-based is the way to go.
Let’s get started…
1. Plants can help improve testosterone
Many men believe a plant-based diet is bad for your testosterone.
According to The Game Changers, this couldn’t be further from the truth!
The show found that those who adopt a plant-based diet experienced no difference in testosterone levels when compared to those who regularly eat meat.
So, how is this possible?
According to researchers, plant-based diets include foods that boost testosterone, including those high in amino acids, omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, and B vitamins. Think pumpkin seeds, avocado, and coconut.
This common misconception stems from the belief that these foods include soy, which is said to be loaded with estrogen. As it turns out, soy actually contains phytoestrogens - compounds that look like estrogen - that have the opposite effect, blocking your body’s estrogen receptors and actually improving testosterone levels.
This shows us that if you’re eating right, a natural diet can actually help boost testosterone.
2. Plant-based meals produce longer, harder erectionsLonger, harder erections are at the top of most mens’ wishlists…
...however, they’re not always easy to achieve.
Many factors contribute to a healthy, long-lasting erection. These include stress, health, hydration, exercise, as well as what you eat. Yes, that’s right! What you’re cooking up in the kitchen can have a long-lasting effect on your performance once you retire to the bedroom.
A casual study conducted in The Game Changers compared penile rigidity as well as how many minutes an erection was present during the sleep of three males after eating both meat and plant-based meals.
The findings? They’re surprising!
The study discovered that:
- The average penile hardness increased by 10.26%
- The minutes an erection was present climbed an astonishing 364%
This was all after consuming just one plant-based meal!
Perhaps the idea that you have to eat meat to be a real man is a myth after all?
3. Plants can benefit your manhood
If you find it hard to rise to the occasion…
...it may have more to do with your diet than you think.
The Game Changers found that those who adopt a plant-based diet benefit from increased blood flow around the body. Including below the belt! As we already know, healthy blood flow plays a key role in ensuring you can perform at your best.
A plant-based diet doesn’t just help you gain - or maintain - an erection, either.
It also helps keep your swimmers happy and healthy.
In a study conducted on 3,000 men, it was found that those who followed a vegetarian diet experienced a higher sperm count than those who didn’t. So if you’re looking at starting - or growing - your family, it might be time to mix in a few more veggies.
4. High carbohydrate plant foods decrease cortisol levelsWhen you’re stressed, the last thing you want to do is get busy between the sheets.
As we’ve explored in the past, natural ingredients like Panax Ginseng are an effective method for relieving the symptoms of stress. So too is eating more plant-based foods, according to The Game Changers.
In fact, adding high carbohydrate plant options can drop cortisol levels by 27%.
It seems plant-based is a boon for your body as well as your mind!
Could going plant-based be a game-changer for your performance?
So there you have it! Those are just a few of the most interesting revelations from Netflix’s latest look at those who’ve decided to embrace a plant-based diet.
Whether you’re improving your sexual performance with a natural supplement or mixing up your meal plan with a few more plant-based meals, The Game Changers’ findings show that going natural once in a while may well be worthwhile!
