Major Causes of Impotence

All men need sufficient amount of testosterone, which is the primary male hormone. When the testosterone levels are low, there’s little desire for sex and little or no ability to get an erection.

Low testosterone level can affect the entire system, including:

  • Lack of sexual desire and erectile issues
  • Fatigue
  • Weakened immune system
  • Prostate problems
  • Heart problems
  • Loss of height
  • Irritability
  • Loss of memory
  • Loss of bone strength
  • Loss of muscle mass and strength
  • Sagging facial skin
  • Weight gain and difficulty losing weight
  • Declining motivation

These health problems can be reduced or eliminated when men restore their low testosterone level back to normal.

An erection occurs because an area in the brain directs the autonomous system to pump the penis full of blood that makes the penis firm. Circulatory problems can prevent enough blood to be pumped to the penis.

High blood sugar and high cholesterol are associated with impotence. Cholesterol plays a role in the biology of prostate health.

Nutrition plays a big role in overall health, including sexual desire. For example, lack of adequate zinc in the body can lower testosterone level. Prolactin stops testosterone production and causes dihydrotestosterone to be produced, which is responsible for prostate enlargement. Zinc stops the pituitary gland from producing prolactin.

There are nerves in the brain called alpha 2-adrenergic receptors that when activated, will prevent the blood valves to the penis from opening. Aging can cause these receptors to stay active.

The good news is that most sexual disorders can be corrected or greatly reduced by proper nutrition and with proper medication when the symptoms are severed.
