The NEW Health Benefit For Men Who Have Regular Sex….But Not For Women!

We have always said that sex is good for you. It cheers you up, it is good physical exercise, and that is just the start of it. However, there is more good news of the health benefits. That is if you are a man at least, the news for women isn’t half as good.

Fascinating Findings

Research found having sex several times a week can drastically reduce levels of homocysteine in men. However, women see far less benefit.

This chemical is found in blood and can trigger serious, life-threatening heart issues.

It is thought men getting regular sex usually have better circulation and healthier blood vessels. This is the key in preventing a build-up of homocysteine.

However, as blood flow is less of an issue for women when they have sex, it seems that they see nowhere near the same reduction in the chemical.

Every year, around 73,000 people in Britain die from coronary heart disease. As the country’s biggest killer, it is good news when we find ways to fight back against it.

The results showed the lowest traces of the chemical were found in men who said they had sex at least twice a week. On the other hand, the highest readings were found in those restricted to less than once a month.

But in women there was no significant variation.

Researchers called on doctors to advise male patients at risk of heart disease to have more sex.

Researchers from the National Defence Medical Centre in Taiwan studied more than 2,000 men and women, aged from 20 to 59.

They took a look at blood samples measuring levels of homocysteine. They then matched the results up with the group’s sexual activity.

In a report on their findings they said: “This is the first study of its kind to evaluate the correlation between sexual frequency and homocysteine levels.

“A good quality sex life, frequent sex and libido are all related to health in the middle-aged and elderly.

“Increased sexual frequency could have a protective effect on general health and quality of life – especially in men – so doctors should support patients’ sexual activity.”

Mixed Opinions

However, not everyone is convinced there is an actual link.

Dr Mike Knapton from the British Heart Foundation said the study produced an ‘interesting result’ but did not go as far to prove regular sex reduced the levels of homocysteine.
He said: “A relationship does exist between sex and heart disease risk.

“Checking your blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as keeping active and not smoking, remain the best ways to ensure a healthy future.”

So, we are not 100% sure this chemical is reduced because of sex, but there is a very good chance it is. What we are convinced of is that sex is good for you, so you need to be doing more of it.

Do you need any more encouragement?
