Walk down the streets of many a city, and a guy will find an abundance of health food stores and gymnasiums. Clearly, a lot of people are focusing their time and efforts on improving their health – and, if they are guys, on improving their penis health as well. Part of this renewed emphasis on health includes being aware of vitamins, nutrients and other ingredients that can have an impact on health (and penis health). One of the lesser known penis health boosters a guy should know about is called pantothenic acid.
What is it?
If pantothenic acid is a bit of a mouthful, just substitute vitamin B5; they're the same thing. Pantothenic acid is both a water soluble vitamin and a vital nutrient. It is available in supplemental form, but it also can be found freely in the diet. Those who enjoy whole grains have easy access to this vitamin, which is also plentiful in mushrooms, liver, egg yolks, sunflower seeds and many dried foods.
Pantothenic acid is very important in digestion, which in turn increases the body's ability to convert food into energy. And teenagers may especially want to get their pantothenic acid, as it helps to fight the skin oils that clog pores and create acne.
And how does this vitamin help with penis health specifically? Well, in a number of ways.
First, pantothenic acid helps boost hemoglobin production. Hemoglobin is the protein in blood that is responsible for transporting oxygen around the body. Oxygen-rich blood helps to keep all tissues healthy, including those tissues in the penis. In addition, oxygen-rich blood is better able to help in the production of a firm erection for sexual purposes.
Second, the vitamin also is known to help bolster the immune system and regulate stress. When a man feels stress, it also has a negative impact on his ability to create and maintain anection. And a healthier immune system means that a man is less likely to be ill; sickness has a tendency to sap a man's libido.
Third, the heart benefits from appropriate levels of pantothenic acid. This ingredient helps the body lower bad cholesterol levels, as well as blood pressure. Both these factors help protect heart health. Good cardiac quality is instrumental in pumping sufficient blood to the penis for erectile purposes.
Fourth, testosterone production is affected by this vitamin's presence – and this important hormone can make a difference where the sex drive is concerned.
Finally, pantothenic acid is beneficial in reducing fatigue and keeping energy up. Since vigilous sexual escapades require resilience, this can be especially welcome in sexually active men – or men who wish to be more sexually active.
Of course, one vitamin can not provide all the health benefits that a man – or his penis-requires. It should be part of a regimen that introduces other vitamins and nutrients to the body, as well as an appropriate amount of physical exercise. Consulting a doctor to determine what changes to make in these areas is a good first step.
One relatively easy way to add pantothenic acid to a man's penis health regimen is to regularly apply a top drawer penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) to the organ. Clearly, it pays to search through all the ingredients in the crème and make sure that either vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid is included in the list. For even better results, the crème should also include vitamin A (which helps fight persistent penis odor) and L-arginine, an amino acid that is very good at producing nitric oxide to help keep penis blood vessels open.
