You’ve probably noticed that your health isn’t what it used to be like in the past. Panting after a flight of stairs? Or is there discomfort in your knees or other parts of your body after carrying out a light task? There’s no denying that with aging, our body changes and we’re not like what we used to be during our primetime. Decrease your risk against possible health conditions and learn how to age well! Here are 5 health tips you can start today to keep yourself in shape!

1. Swimming

It is a good exercise suitable for all – it has no age limit as it is a low-impact form of exercise. It does not place any stress on your joints so it is good for people who are experiencing pain in their joints and it is good for maintaining a healthy heart and lungs. It is also a great way to shed some pounds if you’re overweight – studies have shown that losing just 10% of your body weight can improve your sexual performance. Swim at least 30 minutes 3 times a week will increase your endurance in bed!

2. Add Pumpkin To Your Diet

According to Ava Cadell, Ph.D., author of Neurolovelogy, pumpkin seeds can improve the blood flow to the male genitals 40 percent faster and also increase one’s libido. That’s because pumpkin seeds are rich in Zinc, which can affect the production of testosterone. Not only is it good for improving endurance in bed, consuming pumpkin is good for general health too – it is good for your prostate and it has anti-aging properties too! Both Zinc and Selenium found in the pumpkin seeds can produce collagen which is good for the skin.

3. Herbal Remedy

When choosing a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) supplements to help increase your stamina in bed, look for some of these essential ingredients – Zinc and L-Arginine. One study done has shown that consuming supplements with zinc daily for a month can improve endurance. L-Arginine, on the other hand, helps to increase the blood flow to the heart. This improves your stamina in bed as your cardiovascular health is vital to the blood flow to your penis.

4. Keep Stress Away

When you are stressed, your sex drive will automatically decrease greatly. Stress causes the production of cortisol, which lowers your libido. Try meditation for just 5 to 10 minutes daily in the morning to clear your mind and start the day on a positive note. If you are stressed out during work, leave your desk for 5 minutes to take a breather. Other things you can try to manage your stress includes getting plenty of sleep, keeping an active lifestyle and a healthy diet!  

5. Drink more coffee

Caffeine is a safe stimulant that helps to increase blood flow to all organs. It actually works pretty much the same way a Viagra works – relaxing the blood vessels in your body causing it to dilate and thereby increasing the blood flow to your penis and the rest of the body.
