The human body needs food to function, and what we eat goes a long way to determine our health status. This is why we have been advised to eat the right types of foods, as they help to keep our body organs healthy. The rising case of erectile dysfunction and prostate cancer in men nowadays have become an issue of concern. It therefore becomes necessary to watch what we eat and drink in order to maintain a healthy life. In this article, I will be showing you six natural drinks men should consume regularly in order to keep their private organ in good health.
1. Spinach smoothie.
This vegetable is popularly known as efo tete in Yoruba, and it’s widely grown in Nigeria. Spinach is notable for its rich folate content, which functions to improve blood flow in the body, thus improving the function of the male organ. Research has shown that low blood folic acid levels have been associated with erectile dysfunction, thus making it necessary for men to regularly consume this vegetable. Spinach smoothie is prepared by washing and blending the vegetable and adding water.
2. Apple smoothie.
Apple is said to be good for the male organ because it contains ursolic acid, particularly the peel. One test-tube study has shown that ursolic acid may starve prostate cancer cells and inhibit them from multiplying. However, more research is required to fully prove this. Apple smoothie is prepared by washing, cutting and removing the seeds, and blending the apple fruit.
3. Avocado smoothie.
Avocado is a very popular fruit that is widely known for its buttery taste. However, research has shown that avocados are an excellent source of vitamin E, which functions to improve sperm quality in men who are battling with infertility issues. A medium (150 gram) avocado contains 9% of the DV for zinc, an important mineral which functions to improve sperm quality, testosterone production and fertility. Avocado smoothie is prepared by washing the fruit, peeling the bark and blending the flesh. Men are advised to consume this drink regularly because it helps to keep their private organ healthy.
