When an orgasm is ripping through your body, you feel like the king of the world. Testosterone flying and nerve endings pulsating, orgasm is perhaps one of the best feelings on earth. However, did you know that orgasms actually have some pretty sound health benefits as well? When people tell you that you can’t have too much of a good thing, it turns out they are wrong. Orgasm can make your body better, so you should be doing it as much as you can.
Stress is caused by a hormone called cortisol. However, when you have sex, two major things happen. Testosterone is released which helps to lower the levels of cortisol in your body. Equally, your body releases oxytocin (the love hormone), which creates a feeling of warmth and relaxation. Both of these hormones prevent the build-up of cortisol while also making your body feel better and your mental state more positive.
Many men know the value of a quick bed time masturbation session, but do you know why? Firstly the release of testosterone makes you tired, as, after an orgasm, the levels drop considerably. Secondly, orgasms release serotonin into the body, which makes you feel happy and relaxed, physically reducing muscle tension and mentally easing anxiety. Endorphins are also released which help the body to become more sedated and chilled out. Try combining it with a supplement like ‘Relax (Holy Basil)’ and all your sleep worries will soon be gone!
When your partner tells you she doesn’t want sex because she has a headache. You can kindly let her know that sex will help her with that issue. Sex releases endorphins and oxytocin, both of which help to relieve pain in the body. Studies have shown that orgasm can increase pain tolerance by nearly 100%!
Help fight off infection
When we orgasm, our body creates more cells called leukocytes. These cells are killer cells that help to fight off bacteria and viruses that get into the system. This means that when we orgasm, we’re flooding our body with wellness components which will kill off bad things in our body. If you have a cold already, it will help to get rid of it. If you don’t it builds a better defense system.
Improves cognitive functioning
There are several reasons why sex makes you brain work better. Firstly, it helps the body to relax which improves circulation as the blood vessels dilate. As more oxygen reaches the brain, the brain cells can work more effectively. Equally, sex releases all the really good hormones: endorphins, serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine. All these things liven the brain up and help it to make better connections. Equally, it reduces the bad hormones like cortisol, which clogs the brain and prevents it from functioning effectively due to anxiety.
Keeps you looking young
When you have sex, your body releases the human growth hormone. This hormone helps to repair cells in your body, especially skin cells which are most frequently damaged. This means that when you have lots of orgasms, your body is sending its repair team out to help your skin. The growth hormone is the thing that helps the skin to stay stretchy, preventing wrinkles.
If you want to keep fit and stay healthy, it seems the best thing to do is to have lots of sex and keep the orgasms coming. So make sure you have a healthy sex life, and if not get the libido boosted with some oysters and a little supplement like ‘Sexual Overdrive’ to help out.
