Discover 10 reasons why sex creates powerful health in this guest post–
By Dr. Richard Schultz
Powerful health gives you a thundering sex drive. And a great sex drive helps to keep you powerfully healthy.
Sex should be an essential part of your health regimen. Sex is GOOD for you and it helps you in at least 10 ways:
1. Sex Relieves Stress
Sex has been shown to help lower your overall stress level. Studies have shown that those who have intercourse had healthier responses to stress than those who did not.
2. Sex Lowers Blood Pressure
In a recently published study, researchers found that frequent intercourse was associate with lower diastolic blood pressure (the lower number in a blood pressure reading).
3. Sex Burns Calories
During 30 minutes of sex your body burns an average of 85 calories. This might not seem like a lot, but it adds up quickly. In fact, the number of calories burned during sex is the same as walking two miles per hour!
4. Sex Improves Cardiovascular Health
In a 20 year long study that was published recently, researchers found that having sex twice or more per week reduced the risk of a fatal heart attack for men by 50%.
5. Sex Boosts Self-Esteem
Studies show that one of the reasons people have sex is to “feel good about themselves.” In this way, sex improves emotional health and boosts self-esteem.
6. Sex Boosts Immunity
Having regular sex can cause your body to produce higher levels of immunoglobulin, a powerful immune system antibody that protects you from getting colds, flu and other infections.
7. Sex Reduces Pain
The oxytocin released during orgasm not only promotes intimacy and sleep, but also can cause a decline in pain. The rush of endorphins after sex greatly reduces headaches, arthritis, and even symptoms of PMS.
8. Sex Reduces Prostate Cancer Risk
For men, one study found that frequent ejaculations (21 + per month) were linked to a lower prostate cancer risk in men over 50, compared with those having less frequent ejaculations (less than 7 per month).
9. Sex Strengthens Pelvic Floor Muscles
For women, the pelvic floor muscles can become weaker as a result of childbearing, being overweight and aging. The good news is that sex can help them stay strong! Using your pelvic floor muscles (Kegel exercises) during sex helps you enjoy more pleasure, and also minimizes the risk of incontinence later in life.
10. Sex Helps You Sleep Better
Post-sex, the body releases the hormone oxytocin, which promotes restful sleep. Getting enough sleep helps you maintain a healthy weight, as well as helping to reduce your blood pressure and overall stress level.
What’s the Bottom Line?
Sex is GREAT. It’s healthy. It’s natural. And it feels good. The benefits of sex have been shown to extend far beyond the bedroom, so go have more sex!
Hope this helps you–
