Belly Fat and Erectile dysfunction

 

One way excess belly fat influences a man’s sex life is by decreasing the amount of blood that flows to the penis. An erection occurs when the blood vessels leading to the penis dilate, causing it to fill with blood. The penis must store blood to keep an erection. Therefore, a man’s ability to develop and maintain a penile erection depends on the health of his vascular system.

A man’s ability to a penile erection depends on the health of his vascular system.
Another factor affecting his health is the endothelium – the thin layer of cells that line the interior surface of all blood vessels. If the endothelium is damaged by excess belly fat, it may not release enough nitric oxide – a molecule that signals the surrounding muscles to relax for the blood vessels to dilate and create an erection.

Carrying excess weight can also affect erectile dysfunction by lowering testosterone levels. Testosterone is the primary sex hormone in men and plays an important role in libido and sexual function.
