Premature Ejaculation is a common but uncomfortable problem for men. It is hard for men to discuss this problem as it may be linked to being less “manly”. However, the earlier to accept the problem, the earlier and the better you can find the solution. Premature ejaculation is often caused by hormones, prostate inflammation, or problems with the urethra. Other times it may be caused by stress, depression, or lack of confidence during sex.
A lot of remedies are readily sold only but only a few are tested and proven. These are some of the lists for an effective home remedy for premature ejaculation backed by research and science.
Diet rich in Zinc and Magnesium
A research that was done in 2001 compared the content of magnesium in a normal and healthy men’s sperm with men that are having premature ejaculation. It was found out that magnesium levels in those who have premature ejaculation are lower than those who are healthy. This suggests that magnesium may have an influence on this disorder. Researchers believe that vasoconstriction or the narrowing of blood vessels might be the culprit. The connection? Magnesium is known to be a vasodilator or a blood vessel relaxant. Low levels of magnesium can cause vasoconstriction which causes the premature ejaculation process.
Zinc on the other hand was found to increase libido in male rats as noted in research done in 2009. Although further studies need to be done, it is good to note that adding zinc supplements to the rat’s daily diet made a difference in their sexual performance.
Zinc and magnesium-rich food include the following:
- Seafood such as crab, lobsters, and oyster
- Green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale
- Nuts and seeds such as pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds cashew, almond, and peanuts
- Meat and poultry
