Medical experts agree that men who suffer from erectile problems should look to Viagra for treatment. For the last 15 years, Viagra has been the most purchased medication related to treating the dysfunction. However, even the best medications have their flaws. Today we will be talking about that flaw and how to lessen its effects on you and your partner.
Sex is one of the most unpredictable actions two people can do.
Attempts to schedule sex usually end up in frustration and sometimes even anger from both parties. Viagra’s glaring flaw is essentially this. It forces men to create a schedule around their sex lives. Women in South Africa were asked what the worst thing about their partner’s medication. Over 75% of the women in that poll said the timing of the medication! Most of those women said when the mood hits them, they don’t want to wait an hour or more to get down to business. On many occasions by the time their partners are ready to go, the mood has long passed.
So what’s a man to do? We can only work with the tools we have right?
Yes, but we can change how we use those tools. The first thing we need to do is understand what causes erectile and second, how Viagra treats it. The cause of impotence in 90% of cases is a lack of blood flow to the penis. It’s not something that suddenly strikes but builds up over time. Viagra works by opening up blood vessels in the body to increase your blood flow. When this happens, men are able to for natural erections again. Now that we know what the cause of erectile problems and what the medications we take do. How do we increase Viagra’s effectiveness? Simple, follow these three steps.
The first thing you should consider is digestion. All medications are absorbed into the body easier if you are on an empty stomach. When there is no food in the tank Viagra’s 60 minute wait time can be cut down to as little as 15 minutes. Also, keep in mind this doesn’t only apply to Viagra, this is every other medication too. When you have that nasty headache that won’t go away, make sure you take a painkiller before eating. You’ll be surprised at how fast the medication starts to work. If you have to eat, try to have something light or fast digesting. Foods like fruit, eggs, chicken, and even bread would work just fine.
The second thing you should do is work on your blood pressure. Poor circulation will result in longer waiting times when it comes to medication taking effect. Light exercises on a daily basis can be the difference between a 60 minute wait time and a 30 minute wait time. You don’t need to run a marathon or lift a ton of weights to get the blood flowing. In fact, all you need is a good five minutes of consistent movement to get the heart pumping.
The third thing you should consider is your diet. Limiting the amount of junk food you eat will vastly improve the absorption time of Viagra. In fact, it will improve efficiency as well. Men who have a better diet and take Viagra have reported having larger and stronger erections than men who tend to eat whatever is available. Skip the fast food and get yourself some watermelon, oranges or even some dark chocolate. Your partner will thank you in more ways than one!
