1. Watch what you eat. Stay away from salt and saturated fats. Focus instead on foods that are high in fiber, calcium, and magnesium. A healthy diet consists of lots of fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy products.
If you have high blood pressure, you may experience erectile dysfunction.
For a healthy young man, erectile dysfunction is typically not a problem. As you age, however, you may notice some changes. Maybe it takes more coaxing to get erect than it used to. Sometimes it may take more direct stimulation of the penis, whereas merely a daydream or the suggestion of sex was once enough. Or perhaps your erection isn't quite as firm as it once was, but it's still good enough. These are normal changes.
2. Get plenty of exercise. Regular aerobic workouts condition the heart and keep blood vessels working properly. It's also wise to be as active as possible throughout your day, apart from your workout.
3. If you’re overweight, try to trim down. Even shedding a few pounds can make a big difference.
4. If you smoke or drink a lot of alcohol, now’s the time to stop. Your doctor can give you advice about the most effective ways to do that.
