Relaxing the Blood Vessels
Nitric oxide (NO) is a chemical in the body largely responsible for good blood flow by relaxing the inner muscles of the blood vessels. Nitric oxide is therefore intimately involved in healthy blood flow and blood pressure. Without the ability to make and use adequate nitric oxide in the body, sexual health will suffer and you will be more likely to have major health concerns, like high blood pressure or heart disease.
Good Erections Require Good Blood Flow
It really is that simple. As men age blood flow can diminish due to changes that may naturally occur in nitric oxide levels. Not only does the level of production of NO diminish with passing years, but the ability to convert other things to NO diminishes as well. On top of all of this, the muscles in the blood vessel walls can become insulin resistant which means the effect of NO on the vessel wall is reduced–relaxation doesn’t occur as it should.
A vessel that doesn’t dilate well will either stay contracted and have low blood flow or too much pressure. This is why we often see high blood pressure and erectile issues go hand in hand.
