In modern society, it is very problematic to find a man without any bad habits. Even a healthy lifestyle is the guarantee of health and longevity. One third of young people smoke. Almost everyone is convinced that cigarettes are not that harmful. In addition to causing damage to the state of the entire organism, male potency is also attacked. Every smoker will develop erectile dysfunction sooner or later. The harmful effect of smoking on potency is undeniable.
Harmful ingredients in cigarettes
Many smokers are accustomed to believing that the only harmful substance in cigarettes is nicotine. All other substances, smoke, have no effect on the body. I want to understand this issue in more detail. Every ingredient in cigarettes can damage a person's body and its effectiveness. Compared with other ingredients, nicotine is just a harmless substance.
All toxic chemicals are converted into volatile elements along with smoke. These elements are not only deposited in the lungs of smokers, but also in the lungs of people around them. This is why they say that passive smokers suffer equally with everyone. Scientists have discovered that a cigarette contains as many as 5, 000 such toxic elements. Most of them cause the destruction of many organs and systems.
Many smokers believe that the filter on the cigarette will act as a barrier for chemicals to enter the body. It is worth breaking this myth. The filter retains only 30-40% of all harmful substances. In addition, the body will suffer the same damage when inhaling smoke. So, among the ingredients of many cigarettes, you can find the following ingredients:
- Hydrocyanic acid;
- Radioactive material
- Carbon monoxide;
When we smoke, we breathe nicotine. It is considered a soft medicine. In small doses, people will feel irritable, energetic, uplifted, and dizzy. This effect disappears fast enough. This will encourage you to reach out for cigarettes time and time again. Just 3 weeks of regular smoking is enough to make this addiction addictive. The dose of nicotine should be increased. This has an adverse effect on the cardiovascular system, potency, hormones and nervous system.
Cadmium is a heavy metal that can be deposited and accumulated in the kidneys. Kidney poisoning occurred. In addition, it can cause excessive fragility of bones and wash away calcium from bones. Lead is a particularly dangerous metal. It absolutely accumulates in all body systems. Go deep into tissues and cells. It is spread through blood absolutely everywhere.
Methane is a toxic gas. It usually causes dizziness, nausea and vomiting. When a small amount of methane is consumed with cigarettes, the adverse reactions are hardly noticeable. However, this element has cumulative properties. Phenol can irritate the mucous membranes. Because of him, experienced smokers were diagnosed with cancer of the larynx, trachea, and esophagus. These are not all the harmful ingredients in cigarettes that kill the human body. Therefore, you need to consider the terrible consequences more than once before picking up a cigarette.
Today, you can find a large number of so-called "light" cigarettes. It is worth remembering that the composition of such cigarettes is the same as that of conventional cigarettes. Therefore, they will not be able to save you from disease. The only difference between them lies in the amount of harmful chemical components. They are slightly less in a thin cigarette. However, the entire range of poisons appeared. Therefore, it is only a matter of time before the harmful effects of cigarettes on male sexual performance and the whole body.
Cigarettes and male potency
Does smoking affect efficacy? It is safe to say yes. And it's not the best way. Nicotine enters the blood vessels very quickly, allowing it to spread throughout the body. The substance also enters the blood of the genitourinary system. Therefore, under the influence of cigarettes, sperm motility is immediately reduced. Overall, the number of people alive has dropped sharply. Potency problems can arise even at the level of spermatogenesis. Cigarettes can completely change the structure of newborn sperm.
It has long been proved that the sperm cell activity of smokers is several times lower than that of healthy people. Therefore, in the treatment of this pathology, the first condition is that the man refuses cigarettes completely. It has been determined that the more cigarettes a young man smokes during the day, the lower his effectiveness. Erectile dysfunction began to develop rapidly. Smoking a pack of cigarettes a day increases the chance of complete impotence by 65%.
Nicotine is present in all cigarettes and has an adverse effect on the adrenal glands. They help release adrenaline. Adrenaline is necessary to increase blood pressure and heartbeat. With a small dose of epinephrine, blood circulation will not increase. It is impossible for blood to flow to the penis. The erection becomes too weak, or no erection at all. This is why cigarettes can cause multiple efficacy problems.
The effect of smoking on efficacy can also be explained by the presence of carbon dioxide in the composition of cigarettes. It affects the walls of blood vessels, causing potency issues. Long-term smoking can cause hypoxia in the body. Hypoxia in the genitals. The blood vessels become thin, causing them to block quickly. It becomes impossible for blood to flow to the cavernous body of the penis. After stimulation, it deteriorates drastically in the form of erectile loss.
Smoking causes a decrease in the production of sex hormones. Low testosterone levels in men are the main cause of low potency. Generally speaking, in the context of smoking, there are such problems as the efficacy of drugs:
- Male infertility;
- Weak erection;
- Lack of erection;
- Poor blood circulation in the pelvic area;
- Loss of libido.
Extensive research has been conducted to show the effect of cigarettes on efficacy. Therefore, when both partners smoke, the frequency of sexual activity is significantly less than that of non-smokers. In addition, the level of pleasure during sexual intercourse is significantly reduced when smoking. The orgasm is no longer bright, and sometimes it does not come at all.
Only in the case of complete cessation of smoking is it possible to increase effectiveness. However, it is worth noting that there will be no immediate results. Long-term smoking of cigarettes has caused irreparable damage not only to sexual performance, but also to all organs of the male body. Six months after you quit smoking, you can notice positive changes in effectiveness. Of course, men must not only say goodbye to bad habits, but also completely change their lifestyles. Healthy nutrition and physical activity will accelerate the process of recovery. Experts often prescribe additional medications to improve erectile function.
