Lack of Sleep and Erectile Dysfunction

These days, Americans are staying up later and later all the time because the world we live in caters to that lifestyle. We have 24 hour pharmacies where we can get prescriptions filled at any time of the day or night, online banking where we don't have to wait to see a teller, and apps for smart phones that can basically perform any task that we might need done. All of this caters to a lifestyle that is oblivious to time and place because you can do nearly anything, from anywhere, and at anytime. But the sleep that you are missing out on due to all this new convenience might be causing you some major troubles in your ability to get and sustain an erection. Lets take a look and see just how much your sleep is tied to your erectile ability.

The first way that not sleeping can affect your sex life is by the simple lack of energy that comes from such a lifestyle. Most people who are sleep-deprived are not aware that they are even affected by their sleeplessness. The fact is that it is like carrying a huge weight on your shoulders all the time. You might think that you are functioning fine, but you are really suffering in every way. You might be able to do all the things that you normally could do, but you just won't do them as well as if you had plenty of rest.

Another simple fact that is tied to many if not most of those who suffer with sleeplessness is that they drink lots of caffeine. When you take in caffeine and coffee, your sex life will suffer. This is because of caffeine's diuretic tendencies. When you drink it, you have to urinate, and the blood stream is affected making it more difficult for you to get an erection. Caffeine seems like an easy fix for someone who doesn't sleep well. If you miss out on four hours of relaxing, reinvigorating rest, then you can just simply drink four cups of coffee! Easy enough, right? This logic is making your erectile problems doubly worse because you are implementing two negatives into your routine; sleeplessness and caffeine overload.

The most important thing that you can do if you realize that you have a problem with your pattern of sleeping is to consult your doctor. Your sex life could be in danger if you do not do something about this problem right away. Erectile dysfunction is known to be linked with sleeplessness and it is easy to see why. Your body simply functions better in all aspects when you are getting a good, healthy, full night's rest.

We have all heard the phrase where people jokingly say about good sex that you will be "up all night." But the truth of the matter is that there are many ways in which sleeping soundly and comfortably through the night will bring you unspeakable benefits in your sexual life and in your daily life. Get some rest and enjoy your sex life more than ever before.

Foods That Promote Weight Loss - Fruits

Is it any surprise that fruits are one of the group of foods that promote weight loss? Mother Nature has blessed us with an abundance of these fabulous juicy, tasty, healthy foods that greatly benefit our bodies. Fruits are packed with nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and fiber - everything you need to stay healthy and lose fat. Many of us, especially kids, would shun the sight of vegetables set on the table; but if we see delectable fruits all laid out, then we just cannot resist them!

There's a huge range of fruits available these days, in various shapes, sizes and colors that make your mouth water just by looking at them. Each bite of a tasty fruit can give you enough vitamins and minerals to give your body and energy supply a healthy boost.

No matter how fruits are served, each has its own repertoire of vitamins and minerals that will surely benefit your body. Here are six favorites:

1. Peaches are rich in Vitamin A which is perfect for cell reproduction, growth and development of our bones and teeth, and maintaining healthy skin and hair.

2. Avocados. Often served as a salad ingredient, one avocado contains nutrients such as vitamin K, dietary fiber, potassium, folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin C and copper.

3. Apples. Every bite of this luscious fruit contains folic acid which is vital for proper cell growth and development of embryos.

4. Oranges contain a healthy dose of Vitamin C, which is an important anti-oxidant, reducing the development of harmful diseases, like cancer.

5. Banana. This golden fruit is a great source of the potassium that our body needs to balance water, cells and other body fluids.

6. Grapes. Considered as the fruit of the gods according to Greek mythology, grapes are highly nutritious. They contain compounds that fight diseases; among these are anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins. These two substances are known to show cancer preventive properties, and can detoxify some cancer causing substances.

Healthy eating and weight loss:
There are many ways to enjoy the taste of fruits without destroying their precious nutrients. Many can be eaten raw, skin and all, while some need to be peeled, especially if their skin is tough and bitter. A great way to enjoy them is as a fresh juice - a juicer is a recommended investment!

To get the greatest benefit from your fruits, whether you are eating whole fruits or juicing, make sure your fruit is ripe. It sounds obvious, but when fully ripe fruit is in it's optimum state for you to digest and be absorbed rapidly into your body. The less ripe it is, the harder and slower it becomes to digest. Eat fruit on an empty stomach, preferably 30 minutes before you eat anything else, and you will have completely digested the fruit before other foods interfere with the process. If you are juicing, the fruit will be digested even more quickly.

Why not breakfast on fresh fruit? It is quick and easy to digest and because it is so rapidly absorbed you will soon feel the energy-boosting benefits. It's healthy too - start your day with foods that promote weight loss.

Discover Turmeric Health Benefits

From the rhizomes (root) of this perennial plant found in India, come the highly valued turmeric health benefits. However, turmeric has other talents besides being used for medicine. Turmeric is a fairly new arrival to most Americans spice racks, but it's been a mainstay flavoring spice of Indian curries for thousands of years. In addition to its role as a flavoring spice, turmeric has a long history of use in India's Ayurvedic medicine.

Indeed, its arrival here is good news because studies with animals show that this herb has an impressive array of medicinal uses. So, without further adieu, let's delve into turmeric health benefits.

First, it's important to note that turmeric's chief constituent is known as curcumin. However, it also contains volatile oils, which also harbors medicinal effects.

That said, let's move on to this herbs health benefits.

Turmeric has created a lot of excitement in the natural world of medicine. It's a potent antioxidant and a powerhouse anti-inflammatory agent. Antioxidants work by neutralizing free radicals, which are highly unstable destructive oxygen molecules that can damage cells if left unchecked. Put simply, antioxidants protect the body from the continuous onslaught of free radicals that many experts believe are responsible for premature aging and most diseases, including cancer, heart disease, cataracts, and arthritis if left unchecked.

If you suffer from arthritis, turmeric health benefits may be of interest to you. Turmeric is prized for its ability to fight arthritis. Turmeric is often found in arthritis supplements to help mitigate pain and inflammation. More specifically, test-tube and laboratory studies have confirmed turmeric exhibits anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic activity. In addition to arthritis, turmeric may be helpful for other inflammatory conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and joint inflammation.

Many people have specifically expressed an interest about turmeric for tumors. Turmeric is currently being researched for its effects on different types of cancerous tumors. In fact, many laboratory studies have shown that turmeric has anti-cancer activity. In animal studies, turmeric (curcumin) has been shown to prevent a number of cancers. According to our research, evidence suggests via laboratory data that turmeric (curcumin) can inhibit tumor initiation, promotion, invasion, angiogenesis (growth of new tumor blood vessels), and metastasis (uncontrolled spread).

For example:

    Turmeric (curcumin) inhibited growth of tumors in the colon.
    Turmeric (curcumin) helped stop the spread of breast cancer tumor cells to the lungs of mice.
    Turmeric slowed the development of prostate cancer on tumor cells in a lab dish.

Indeed, the evidence from laboratory data, meaning animal and laboratory studies suggests that turmeric (curcumin) has potential in the treatment of various forms of cancer, including prostate, breast, skin, and colon. In addition, turmeric is touted as a cancer protective herb because antioxidants help prevent the cell damage that sets the stage for cancer.

Turmeric health benefits may be of benefit to heart disease prevention. According to the well renowned tome "The Pill Book Guide to Natural Medicines" written by Michael Murray N.D. who states:

"Curcumin prevents LDL cholesterol from becoming oxidized and damaging arteries. In addition, it exerts other atherosclerosis-preventing effects, including lowering cholesterol levels, preventing plaque formation, and inhibiting the formation of clots by inhibiting platelet aggregation."(Page 608.)

But wait, there's more turmeric health benefits...

Turmeric's volatile oils is said to have external anti-bacterial action. As such, it may help prevent bacterial wound infections.

The herb also stimulates the production of bile, which helps digest fats. In addition, turmeric has shown in animal studies to have a protective effect on the liver such as protecting the liver from many toxins.

What about turmeric for fibroids? In this regard, we located scant information that turmeric may be helpful for uterine fibroids. According to Phyllis A. Balch, CNC the author of Prescription for Nutritional Healing, turmeric may be helpful for uterine fibroids because it's a powerful antioxidant that supports the liver while promoting the elimination of toxins.

Other possible turmeric health benefits or uses:

    May be helpful for indigestion and heartburn.
    It is used for improved liver function.
    May help prevent cataracts due to its antioxidant properties.
