Does Sex lower Blood Pressure?
Sex is a little 3 letter word that can cause people to giggle or gasp. But science and research prove that having sex is good for your heart, and your blood pressure. Researchers stated that men who made love regularly (at least twice a week) were 45 percent less likely to develop heart disease, than those who did so once a month or less, according to one study. So, how does sex lower blood pressure?
High blood pressure puts pressure on the blood vessels, leading to damaged and narrowed hardened arteries. The same effects that endanger the cardiovascular system can also cause erectile dysfunction in men (think about it for a second…) and reduced arousal and ability to achieve orgasm in women. Testosterone, a sex hormone power player for both ladies and gents, could be a solution. Studies have shown a link between low testosterone and high blood pressure, while the spikes in testosterone associated with sexual activity might help lower blood pressure.
Sexual activity not only provides many of the same benefits to your heart as exercise but also keeps levels of estrogen and testosterone in balance, which is important for heart health.
Sex also releases serotonin, endorphins, and phenyl-ethylamine, hormones that generate feelings of euphoria, pleasure, and elation—and make people forget all their stress. Relieving stress relaxes the arteries in the body-again lowering high blood pressure.For further reading:
