Caffeine, particularly drinking coffee has been regarded as a NO-NO for male sexual health referring to erections. It turned out coffee consumption is an impotence prevention.
Personally, I’ve ignored those findings showing how bad drinking coffee was as presented in previous studies. The basic and most popular findings is that… coffee is a stimulant and bad for health.
For instance, it has been found to increase blood pressure. But in reality, it only temporarily raised blood pressure, and not long-term and persistent.
Previously, I’ve included caffeine as one of those should be avoided for better male sexual health, but I was clear enough to mentioned, it’s not a bad thing as long as it is consumed in moderation. Certainly, it’s bad when consumed beyond what the body can handle.
I’ve seen a lot of people consuming up 6 to 10 cups a day, and these are big cups experiences uneasiness, high blood pressure, insomnia, and among many others.
On the other hand, people like me who regularly consumed 2 to 3 cups in the morning experience no negative effects, but helpful health benefits instead such as better concentration, and if I mixed my coffee with healthy fats(which I mostly do), I can go on throughout the entire morning without snacking, and even not eat lunch because I’m not yet hungry.
Upgraded Coffee – Modified Version
Well, ignoring those previous research and many publications online, I continue to drink coffee. I drink freshly brewed coffee every morning an hour after waking up and done with my morning routine.
Caffeine intake reduced the odds of prevalent ED, especially an intake equivalent to approximately 2 to 3 daily cups of coffee equivalent to 170-375mg/day. This reduction was also observed among overweight/obese and hypertensive, but not among diabetic men. Yet, these associations are warranted to be investigated in prospective studies.
Based on the researcher’s findings, the caffeine triggers a series of pharmacological effects as its primary mechanism resulting in relaxation of penile helicine arteries, and smooth muscle tissues allowing an increase of blood flow for an improved erectile function.
Earlier research says that 85% of adults drink caffeine. Coffee consumption is the only source of caffeine. Among other sources include soda, tea, and sports drinks as recent studies suggest.
Caffeine Could Be The New Health Hero
Recently, USDA 2015 Dietary Guideline mentioned about the consistent evidence proving that coffee consumption is linked on reducing risks of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, as well as showed evidence to protect against Parkinson’s disease in adults.

Things To Be Aware When Drinking Coffee
There are other sources of coffee including those used in the recent studies. Chocolate is also another source of caffeine.
We’ll take coffee as an example because it has the most concentration of caffeine compare to other sources.
While many recent studies found coffee is safe for consumption and not linked to various cancers and diseases, still its caffeine content is a stimulant.
Avoid over consumption. The recommendation is to drink between 2 to 3 cups a day, except for one research that consuming coffee up to 6 cups is still safe, but personally, I won’t go that far as I’ve seen many people consuming too much caffeine are experiencing unwanted results.
Avoid consuming coffee with supplementation that contains ginseng as it can lead to unwanted experiences.
Be aware that every creamier, sugar and other stuff you are adding to your coffee for better taste purposes can add calories to it.
Sugar for sure is one thing should be avoided. For 8 years now, I’ve been drinking my coffee free from sugar, commercially available sweetener, and creamier.
I use healthy fats to make my coffee a lot delicious compare to those available commercially. Sure, preparation can take a lot of time, but the taste is good plus it maintain the coffee’s authentic health properties.
There you have it! The amazing health benefits of coffee has now prevailed and turned out the previous findings are simply a myth. Well, it might not be totally a myth because over consumption of caffeine can result in various unhealthy consequences.
According to experts in the field, coffee is a complex blend of biologically active substances that could be either or both beneficial and/or harmful to the healthy, particularly the cardiovascular system.
So, don’t be afraid to drink coffee. Start half a cup for the first time and subsequent days. Once you feel good about it, but I doubt you’ll see instant results with a small amount, just continue and keep observing how you feel.
Personally, I like to blend my coffee with healthy fats like unsalted butter, coconut oil and ground cinnamon on it. I found this recipe to be great when you’re doing intermittent fasting.
Additionally, coffee especially black coffee is good for brain health.
For sure, since I was a young, coffee is already a part of me, but I always follow grandmother’s advice… too much of a good thing is bad.
Moderation Is Key
Moderation is the key to consuming coffee. Right now, I think based on my experience, it’s also a part of maintaining a healthy sex life, and overall health, too.
However, as I’ve mentioned earlier, better start consuming coffee that is black and sugar-free, as well as free from creamier that is also rich in sugar and calories. This stuff makes coffee unhealthy, so drink coffee at its purest.
At first, you’ll resist it due to its bitter taste, but surely you’ll love it once you get used to it. After all, it’s a natural impotence prevention making your sex life better.
