1. Last Longer in the Bedroom – Heart

Good heart health is vital to longer lasting erections.  While no guy wants to visit the doctor’s office, a trip may be in order if you are over 30, or have trouble getting or maintaining erections.  This could signal an underlying condition such as High Blood Pressure (HBP) or Low Testosterone (Low T).

Your penis works on blood pressure. The brain sends signals to your penis, which causes vessels to become engorged with blood. Your heart pumps that blood. When problems arise during this process, the penis can go prematurely limp because the vessels cannot sustain the pressure for as long as you’d like (American Heart Association, 2012). Further complications can include inability of the penis to reach a full erection. You want to make sure your circulatory system is working at top shape.
