Let’s correct the popular misconceptions today with this post as it appears sex has not been duly recognized for its health rewards. Actually, because this is so wrong and often spread by many, I decided to outline 10 amazing ways through which adults can benefit from being sexually active.
Here we go;
- SEX HELPS REDUCE BLOOD PRESSURE
Various research and findings say there’s a strong connect between a healthy sex life and the reduction of high blood pressure. An active sex life has been said to help reduce systolic blood pressure, some medical researchers say.
- SEX KILLS STRESS
Sex helps the body pump chemicals that induce relaxation and stave off stress consequently.
- REDUCTION IN BODILY PAINS
We advised on how you could successfully help your woman reach an orgasm here. This has become rewarding following what medical analyses say today. Studies and reports from women have shown that vaginal stimulation helps cut down back and leg pains, as well as headache, arthritic pains and cramps in some other cases.
- SEX IS GREAT FOR IMMUNITY
Sex has been credited for providing a considerably higher level of immunoglobin A (IgA). And in case you didn’t know, the body’s first line of defense is the IgA immune system. The immunoglobin is a major antibody that helps in mucosal immunity. It therefore helps combat organisms at their points of entry into the body.
- REDUCTION OF HEART DISEASE
Extra healthy hearts have been found in men with an active sex life as against their counterparts who had less sex, studies say. Sex is helpful in two ways here; first it helps balance estrogen and testosterone levels in the body. And secondly it provides same health benefits to the heart as would exercises.
- SEX HELPS IMPROVE SLEEP
This doesn’t really need much explaining as sexually active individuals already have an idea what this is about. But for more clarifications, sex helps release prolactin, which ensures better relaxation and sleep. Also, oxytocin released during orgasms help increase sleep rates.
- BLADDER CONTROL IN WOMEN
Women can avoid incontinence as intercourse helps their pelvic floor muscles strengthen some more. Kegel exercises have also been spotted as a major catalyst of the bladder control in women.
- SEX BONDS AND INCREASES TRUST IN PARTNERS
The release of oxytocin –AKA the ‘love’ hormone- helps increase bonding and build trust in partners who have an active sex life.
- SEX HELPS YOU REDUCE AGING
In many sexually active persons, there’s been a prominent glow of the skin as well as overall reduced aging. The testosterone and estrogen hormones help in this respect, ensuring that the body stays agile and glowing. Estrogen, particularly, has been known to increase the softness of the skin as well as the hair’s sheen.
