Juices for impotence – Recipes / Preparations

- These juices aren’t meal replacements.

Juices for impotence: Information on ingredients
This diet includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, among other foods. Therefore, the juices above could help you improve or prevent impotence.
In addition, it’s worth highlighting some nutrients from the ingredients we’ve chosen.
These substances work as antioxidants and are found in garlic, cocoa, oats, nuts and a large number of fruits and vegetables, such as those used in the juices above.
According to studies, the intake of foods with flavonoids could improve circulation and help prevent erectile dysfunction.
This antioxidant gives its reddish color to various foods such as watermelon, tomato or berries. But more importantly, it has the potential to bring many benefits, such as reducing cardiovascular and diabetes problems.
Finally, according to a study conducted on rats and published in 2012, this substance could help treat diabetic erectile dysfunction.
L-citrulline and transresveratrol
Watermelon is rich in citrulline, which is another substance that may help improve circulation.
On the other hand, resveratrol is an antioxidant that promotes vascular relaxation and is found in grapes and other foods.
According to a 2018 study, consumption of L-citrulline and transresveratrol, in addition to therapy with a PDE5i (such as Viagra), could help improve the effectiveness of impotence treatment in men.
Vitamins C, E, folate and calcium
According to some studies, these substances could improve vascular health (which affects erectile function) and promote the release of nitric oxide. This compound may enhance the effects of phosphodiesterase-5 inhibitors, such as Viagra.
Here you can see the recommended daily intake of these nutrients for adults, as published by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
- Vitamin C: 90 mg for men and 76 mg for women.
- Vitamin E: 15 mg.
- Folate: 400 mcg. For lactating or pregnant women, the number may be higher.
- Calcium: 1000 mg for men from 19 to 70 years old and women from 19 to 51 years old. On the other hand, 1200 mg for men 71 years or older and women 51 years or older.
