Say GOODBYE to This Bedroom Problem

Have you been having problems in the bedroom recently? 

It’s okay, don’t be embarrassed. 

Trust me, it doesn’t make you any less of a man if you’ve been having trouble “keeping it up” lately…  

In fact, more than 30 million men struggle with erectile dysfunction (ED).  

You’re not alone.  

And if this embarrassing condition hasn’t already made its way into your love life, consider yourself lucky… But that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear.  

Don’t wait for one of those humiliating nights where your wife has to assure you “it’s okay honey, maybe next time.” 

Take action against ED today with this one daily habit that SLASHES your chance of ever having this kind of bedroom problem.  

A study published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology looked at the relationship between men’s sexual health and oral hygiene.  

And according to the study, men with periodontitis (or gum disease) — a condition where the gums are inflamed — were at GREATER risk of developing erectile dysfunction. 

Researchers gathered information from 158 men. At the end of the study they found that 74% of participants with erectile dysfunction had signs of or already had periodontitis.  

What’s more, those with the worst cases of ED were also those with the MOST oral inflammation. 

They concluded that those with periodontitis were AT LEAST 2.28 times MORE LIKELY to have ED than those with healthy gums. 

So how is it that this gum problem causes trouble in your nether regions? 

 The bacteria and inflamed cytokines (cells from your immune system) from this type of gum disease can damage the cells that line your entire circulatory system, from head to toe.  

Once this researches the blood vessels “down there” blood-flow is impacted and often times, restricted.  

Hence why poor oral hygiene doesn’t just affect your mouth, but can also slow things down below the border. 

To keep everything running smoothly, make sure you maintain good hygiene.  

Periodontitis in particular is also caused by smoking or chewing tobacco.  

But you should also brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss daily to keep this type of inflammation at bay.
