What’s Liver Got to Do With It? The Role of the Liver in Sex

We humans take everything for granted in life; we even take our bodies for granted and abuse it by eating high fat foods, smoking, drinking, and doing God knows what else. This takes a toll on our organs and one organ that should not be messed with is the liver. The liver does so much for our body, as we all know, but what many people don’t know is that the liver is absolutely essential to our sex lives.

The liver provides enzymes that produce the neurotransmitters Acetylcholine, Nitric Oxide (NO), and the erectile dilator cyclic Guanylate Monophosphate(cGMP). If the liver produces too much Phosphodiesterase (PDE) type 5, which blocks the action of cGMP on the penile erectile tissues, then a man might have trouble with his erection. Also, the liver produces another enzyme called Aromatase that converts testosterone to estradiol and androstenedione to estrone. Too much Aromatase will lower the level of testosterone and reduce libido.

If you have ever felt tired, unexcited, and unable to perform at your best, then you probably do not have enough 5-alpha reductase. 5-alpha reductase is another enzyme produced by the liver to convert testosterone into Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is used to recharge the bioelectricity of the nervous functions during sexual activities. DHT is also used in part to help enlarge you penis if you do penis enlargement exercises. However, too much DHT can lead to unwanted consequences. DHT has been linked to hair loss, prostate inflammation, and acne. The production of too much DHT will trigger those effects.

Finally, you need your liver to expel unwanted chemicals, including excessive androstenedione, testosterone and estrogen out of the body, in addition to metabolic wastes, drugs, alcohol, smoking, mimic estrogen and growth hormones from animal meats, milks, pesticides and birth control pill/injection.

The liver seems to act as the computer processor that organizes and distributes the goods from the bads. In sex, we need plenty of good and we need to eliminate all of the bads.

To sum it up, you need to maintain the health of your liver so that you may be able to perform well in bed.
