Impotence - Caused by Hypertension


Tires can rupture when too much air is pumped into them. Exceed the recommended pressure, and you'll likely end up with a hefty bill to replace them. Blood pressure works in a similar way. The veins in your body are capable of withstanding only a certain amount of pressure. Exceed the pressure and the body can experience a stroke or heart attack. As the blood moves through arteries, arterioles, capillaries and veins, the pressure decreases. When pressure remains consistently high, the pressure damages the arteries and veins. Damaged veins and arteries can lead to hypertension, cardiovascular disease and impotence. Yes, high blood pressure can cause impotence.

High-saturated fats cause the penis arteries to become inelastic. Inelastic arteries experience a buildup of atherosclerotic plaque, which blocks the flow of oxygen and nutrients to tissues cells. Constricted and aged arteries impede the local blood flow from receiving enough nitric oxide required to sustain an erection. 
 


How Does Hypertension Damage the Penis?
High-saturated fats cause the penis arteries to become inelastic. Inelastic arteries experience a buildup of atherosclerotic plaque, which blocks the flow of oxygen and nutrients to tissues cells. Constricted and aged arteries impede the local blood flow from receiving enough nitric oxide required to sustain an erection. (Solutions: High Cholesterol, Aging Arteries)

Erectile dysfunction and hypertension also cause endothelial dysfunction, a condition that lowers nitric oxide production. [1] Think of nitric oxide as the communication channel between the brain and the penis. When the channel is turned off, the body cannot send signals to stimulate the penis. Instead, nitric oxide production remains low, causing impotence. Men who experience endothelial dysfunction also have a high risk factor for diabetes, depression and obesity.
Don't Let Second Hand Smoke Kill Your Erection

Risk factors such as smoking and nicotine-induced hypertension can hinder the endothelial function and nitric oxide production inside the penis tissues. Also free radical generating from smoking (second hand smoke, too) can break down nitric oxide.

Since vascular problems like endothelial dysfunction lead to erectile dysfunction, it is one of the early indicators of hypertension and cardiovascular diseases.[1] [2] Clinical evidence has shown that high blood pressure alters testosterone levels and causes Peripheral Arterial Disease that affects erections.
 

Solution Advice

Natural solutions, like medications, vary on results. Red Yeast Rice for Erectile Dysfunction helps lower LDL levels thanks to herbs such as Red Yeast Rice and Maca. Meanwhile, Cuscuta and Butea Superba in the formula help improve erectile strength. But hypertension is a two-part problem: the plaque buildup inside the veins that causes a reduction in blood flow and the constriction of the arteries. Both issues lead to impotence problems. Men need to improve blood flow, free arteries from constrictions and prevent further oxidative damaged caused by hypertension with Anti Aging Herbal Remedies For Arteries & Erection Problems.

Tips for Reducing Hypertension

Take magnesium, calcium and potassium. These electrolytes help nourish the heart muscle and regulate blood pressure. Avoid salty foods, which have lots of sodium that can raise your blood pressure. Add more fiber to your diet. Research shows that three weeks of consumption of 26 grams of fiber can help lower C-reactive proteins,  which are linked to heart diseases and diabetes.
