Stay on Top of Your Blood Pressure

High blood pressure isn’t just a health risk -- it can also be a major threat to your erections. Men with high blood pressure are more likely to experience blood flow issues that could result in decreased sexual performance and weaker, less reliable erections.

Although high blood pressure is linked to obesity, it’s possible to have higher-than-normal blood pressure even if you’re not overweight. If your diet is overly rich in sodium or you don’t exercise often, there’s a risk that you could have hypertension or prehypertension.

Luckily, this one is easy to check. A quick visit to your local doctor will give you an idea of where your blood pressure sits for most of the day, while simple lifestyle changes like exercising more and eating less salt can help you get your blood pressure under control.
