sexual health

Plant-based diets may improve the attractiveness of men and women, improve sexual functioning in men and women, increase the appeal of male body odor, and increase ejaculate volume. Poultry consumption can negatively affect penis size, and fish consumption can reduce sperm count; both are due to the industrial contaminants that build up in the meat supply.

Erectile dysfunction appears to serve as an early warning sign of heart disease. Although watermelon may help with erectile dysfunction, it’s better to get at the root cause and eliminate arterial blockages. And all men should ensure adequate zinc consumption, regardless of dietary lifestyle. Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source.
