Coconut is our #3 food choice for men
The health benefits of coconut are almost countless. But why is this food particularly good for men’s sexual health?
Coconut is a great energy source. It’s particularly noted for boosting endurance. It’s revered for its ability to aid and strengthen the digestive system. Loaded with carotene, vitamin E, selenium and a good source of fiber, it will combat heart problems, diabetes, high cholesterol and those pesky free radicals. These benefits of coconut are obviously great for both sexes. But of note for men, coconut is a good source of manganese. And manganese is important for men’s sexual health. Among other effects, a lack of manganese in your diet will diminish your reproductive system.
There are also some indications that coconut oil specifically has some health benefits for men. Read on to learn more about the potential benefits of coconut oil.
Coconut water and coconut oil health benefits
Although there is little scientific study to substantiate the claims, coconut water celebrates a long folkloric history as a libido booster. (Read more on the aphrodisiac history of coconut water.)
But unlike coconut water, which has fairly straightforward benefits, the topic of coconut oil and health remains a controversial one. Countless studies have investigated both positive and negative health claims.
For example, one recent study on the use of coconut oil in cholesterol management, participants reported higher sex drive when taking daily doses of coconut oil. That seems like a pretty positive benefit of coconut oil to us. In addition, an investigation published in Phytotherapy Research discovered that regular intake of coconut oil can result in improved levels of testosterone.
Yet coconut oil has its enemies. And it’s true that too much of this good thing can cause the kind of health problems that could kill libido. But we say that moderate enjoyment of this exotic-flavored oil shows enough potential to enhance pleasure that we support the practice. Just don’t go overboard!
