How to increase blood flow to penis

Lifestyle changes to improve your erectile function

Here is a list of pretty basic but powerful things that will help improve blood flow to the penis and your erectile function can start to improve noticeably.

Implement them and then reassess your condition before trying any other treatment.

Add weights to your life

So, how to increase blood flow to penis?

By improving blood circulation in your body.

You should opt for heavy weight lifting that uses multiple muscle groups such as squatting and bench pressing. If you do not have access to weights or a gym, then put together your own program including plenty of pushups and squats.

Don’t overtrain

Up to one hour of intense weight lifting will see testosterone levels and blood flow to the penis starting to improve naturally, but after that, they can fall off rapidly and they may take up to five days to recover.

Burn some fat

If you have gained excess weight, start taking steps to reduce it. Being overweight has many health risks associated with it and lowering testosterone is one of them.

You may believe that losing weight is impossible without doing endurance sports, but in fact, a correct diet will be far more beneficial than hours pounding the streets in your jogging suit.

Improve your diet

Abandon all-ready meals and fast food and opt for much healthier Whole Foods.

Lose your fear of natural fat

Focus on a diet with moderate amounts of protein, plenty of natural fat, such as that in fish, red meat, and avocados, and eat plenty of vegetables.

Take in high saturated fat by eating olive oil and cooking with coconut oil. Fat is full of nutrients and an excellent booster. So don’t be put off by all the myths you have heard about its effects on your weight.

Include raw dairy in your diet with things such as goat’s milk and plain full-fat yogurts.

Stop alcohol minimum for one month

After that, you can decide if you want to start drinking again in moderation, but you may well find you would rather keep the erectile function up and the drink level down.

Alcohol causes a twenty percent drop in most males and this figure goes up to fifty percent in alcoholics.

Stop smoking too

Smoking is bad for just about everything but you know that already.

Drink plenty of water

This natural product is so often neglected but is so very important. It is not just a matter of keeping your body hydrated, you will also need to flush away the toxins generated by an unhealthy lifestyle.

Eat your greens

Green vegetables are great for raising your nutrient level, but broccoli, cabbage, and spinach are all particularly good for testosterone elevation and erectile function.


This plant is so wonderful that I’m surprised it’s so underused. It contains high levels of Allicin, which is great for blood flow, testosterone, and erectile function.

Cut out sugar

Sugar causes a huge spike in adrenaline production and is turned into body fat quicker than anything else we eat. It contributes to raised blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, both of which are contributors to low testosterone levels and erectile dysfunction.

Never touch fizzy drinks and remember that many alcoholic drinks are high in sugar.

Try intermittent fasting

This has been practiced for thousands of years. You do not need to starve yourself and if you simply cram your eating into a sixteen-hour window you will be allowing your body some time off to fully digest and rid itself of toxins. You can do this by simply skipping breakfast. There are dozens of other fasting regimes and I am not suggesting anything that goes beyond twenty-four hours, but you should definitely educate yourself as to the options here. Fasting has been shown to raise testosterone by up to 400 percent and improve your erectile function.

Go Fish

Fish oil tablets will raise your intake of vital omega-three oils.

Get plenty of sunshine You should aim at trying to be in the open air for at least an hour per day

If there is no sun or getting outdoors clashes with your commitments, then take at least 5000 IUs of vitamin D3 per day.

Add Zinc + Vitamins

Zinc is one substance that is often found to be deficient in men with low testosterone levels and erectile function. You can take a zinc supplement. If you do choose this option, then include vitamin B6 or magnesium as they both assist in the absorption of zinc.

Does Zinc make you harder?


Sleep is incredibly important,  but an often neglected area of healthy lifestyle management. Don’t drink for three hours before going to sleep and sleep in a dark room. If possible do not surf the net or work on the computer in the last few hours before going to sleep as this has been shown to make sleeping difficult.

Sleep in a cool room. Your testes are in a sack rather than deep in your body because they prefer a cooler environment. Try to provide that.

Cold showers or ice bath

To further moderate ideal conditions for increasing blood flow take cold or at least tepid showers.

Kill Stress

Stress is your biggest enemy at the moment. Stress does immense damage to our health and its effect on our testosterone levels literally kills erectile function. The lower blood flow to the penis should not come as a surprise. We often feel stressed without even realizing it, so take action.

Spend some time with friends. Laugh a little and live a little. Few things are better for de-stressing and relaxation than time spent enjoying good company.

Lower your blood pressure

This is one that is essential for the blood flow to the penis.

Be sure to get tested at your next visit to the doctor.

Do some sex action

I know you probably expected to refrain from doing that.

But in fact, sex is really good for stimulating the blood flow to your penis.

So if you can get it, then go for it.
