WHEN one mentions nuts and the 4-5 in one sentence, a naughty giggle often follows because we often refer to a man’s genitals as nuts.
But there is also a health relationship between peanuts and the 4-5.
According to Healthline magazine, peanuts are great for the health and functionality of a 4-5.
According to the publication, peanuts are loaded with arginine, an amino acid that’s converted into nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide is a compound that helps dilate the blood vessels to improve blood flow and circulation.
This blood circulation is important as this is how a 4-5 works and becomes sexually potent.
Studies show that arginine supplements may help treat mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.
Other test tube and animal studies have found that arginine could improve semen quality, enhance libido, and increase testosterone levels.
Peanuts are also a good source of resveratrol, an antioxidant that has also been shown to support sexual health in men.
Furthermore, according to Medical News Today, a 14-week trial compared a group of men who added a daily dose of certain nuts to a Western style diet with an equivalent group of men who ate the same diet but without nuts.
The daily dose of nuts comprised 60 grams, which was the equivalent of about two handfuls of almonds, hazelnuts and walnuts.
The investigators, from research centres in Spain, believe that this is the first study to show that eating nuts can benefit sexual function.
This report of the trial data had already reported that daily consumption of these nuts appeared to improve sperm quality.
The recent analysis uses the same trial data but focuses on the effect of nut consumption on sexual and erectile function.
The findings suggest that adding nuts to a Western style diet can improve orgasm quality and sexual desire.
