Male Potency Diet: Busting the Cholesterol Myth!
Pasture raised animal foods are some of the healthiest foods for male potency due to their rich supply of amino acids, minerals and vitamins. Yet there is a huge campaign to make you afraid to eat these foods!
By the way, do you know that cholesterol and other
are the main raw materials from which
The conventional view of cholesterol is dead wrong!
There is NO real scientific evidence, despite what you may hear to the contrary, that supports the validity of low cholesterol diet.
Cholesterol consumption has been wrongly blamed for the increase in coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis. These diseases have been implicated as one of the causes of erectile dysfunction.
The evidence points to the consumption of vegetable oils and margarine as the real culprit. Statistics show that coronary heart disease skyrocketed only since the consumption of vegetable oils and margarine!
Dr. David Kritchevsky of Wistar Institute PA, found that vegetable oils fed to animals increased, rather than decreased, hardening of the arteries!
FACT: Telling most people to lower cholesterol intake, EVEN IF BLOOD CHOLESTEROL IS HIGH, is unscientific.
Because the vast majority of people have a very effective cholesterol self-regulating mechanism! The body has its own checks and balances for regulating cholesterol.
study by Dr. Donald McNamara at Rockefeller University
(new window opens) involved feeding a high cholesterol diet to 50 people. Most responded by absorbing less cholesterol from their intestines. Eight of them showed a DECREASE in blood cholesterol on a high cholesterol diet.
The final conclusion in the abstract citing this experiment:
"Analysis of the available epidemiological and clinical data indicates that for the general population, dietary cholesterol makes no significant contribution to atherosclerosis and risk of cardiovascular disease."
Male Potency Diet:
Benefits of Grass Fed Beef
It is fitting to begin a male potency diet list with one of the foods most supportive of mens' health. Grass fed beef contains a wealth of nutrients that support sexual health.
Omega-3's: The source of omega-3 fatty acids in pasture raised beef is the fresh, green leaves of grass and other plants. Grain is a very poor source of omega-3's, so cattle finished in feedlots lose omega-3's very fast.
Omega-3 fatty acids research proves that omega-3 improves cardiovascular health, and may also be anti-carcinogenic. Omega-3's also keep all your cell membranes strong and supple, as well as being an anti-inflammatory.
Stearic Acid: Research has shown cholesterol levels to drop after consumption of stearic acid!
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid): Combats cancer and arteriosclerosis, reduces body fat, delay onset of diabetes. CLA is also an immune system booster.
At University of Wisconsin, Madison, researcher Michael Pariza's anticancer research studies showed that CLA reduces incidence of cancer and suppresses growth of existing cancers in laboratory animals.
CLA has been shown by research to help reduce fat and increase lean body mass (muscle). So much for the 'fat makes you fat' myth!
It also influences factors that regulate bone metabolism, increasing the rate of bone formation.
Grass fed beef has 30 - 40% more CLA than commercially raised beef.
Vitamin D3: Grass fed cattle spend their whole lives getting daily sun exposure, plus eating fresh green grass (or dried in winter) that also gets constant sunlight. Vitamin D3 accumulates and is available when you eat pasture raised meat.
Vitamin E: It was proven years ago that full-spectrum Vitamin E was important in sexual health. In fact Vitamin E was one of the first vitamins known as a 'sex vitamin.'
What do I mean when I say 'full-spectrum Vitamin E?' These days, Alpha Tocopherol is thought of as Vitamin E. But Alpha Tocopherol is only ONE member of the Vitamin E complex. Gamma Tocopherol and Delta Tocopherol are two others...Just as there is a B-Complex including Vitamin B1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), and Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), to name only three of the B's.
Dark greens contain full-spectrum Vitamin E. Grass eaten by pasture raised cattle contains Vitamin E. The Vitamin E accumulates in grass fed animals and is passed on to you when you eat the meat.
Vitamins A and D: Are essential for the assimilation of calcium and magnesium for strong bones. These minerals also govern muscle contraction and relaxation (which, as you know, are part of healthy sexual response). Vitamins A and D also are important for immune health, integrity of mucous membranes, nerves and have many other functions in the body.
Male Potency Diet: Eggs From Free Range Hens
Choline, inositol and healthy cholesterol in eggs from free range hens supports healthy nerves, the integrity of cell membranes and sex hormone production - all important in male potency.
Male Potency Diet: Pasture Raised Butter and Dairy Products!
Butyric acid (butyrate): an edible fatty acid found in butter. Not only is it highly desirable food for all the cells of the body, but makes it more difficult for cancer cels to survive.
CLA (conjugated linoleic acid): In a study comparing the CLA in milk from grass fed cattle to those fed hay and grain, scientist Larry Satter at the Dairy Forage Research Center in Madison, Wisconsin found that grass fed milk had 500% more CLA.
Male Potency Diet: Fresh Raw Nuts and Seeds
Fresh raw nuts and seeds contain Vitamin E, Magnesium, Zinc, Essential fatty acids, B-vitamins, and Arginine among other nutrients important for male potency diet.
Arginine, common in all nuts and seeds, is well-known for increasing nitric oxide production, a necessity for erectile potency.
Pumpkin Seeds: Are rich in zinc, a mineral needed for male prostate gland health. Pumpkin seed extract is commonly included in male prostate supplement formulas.
Look for pumpkin seeds that are plump, rich green in color.
Photo: The pumpkin seeds on the left are rancid, moldy and broken. Plump, green pumpkin seeds like those on the right are fresh and tasty.
Do you know that pumpkin seed extract is an excellent supplement for improving and maintaining
prostate health?Walnuts: Contain a healthy proportion of Omega-3 essential fatty acids, needed for the health of nerves and cell membranes.
Raw walnuts should ideally be bright ivory white on the inside, with well-defined outer contours and a sheen to the light brown outer skin, like the one in the photo on the left.
Avoid walnuts that are dull greyish-tan on the inside, and that have worn, dull skins, like the walnut on the right.
Almonds: Are known to contain small amounts of amygdalin, from which Vitamin B-17, which has the chemical name of Laetrile, is derived. Laetrile is a compound used in natural cancer prevention.
While controversy surrounds the use of Laetrile, Vitamin B-17, for cancer treatment, there is a scientific basis for the claims. Laetrile contains a dangerous compound, cyanide, which is locked inside. Only cancer cells can release the cyanide because they contain an enzyme that unlocks it. The cyanide kills any cancer cell it comes in contact with, and a neutralizer that emerges along with the cyanide prevents it from damaging any normal cells nearby.
Almonds also contain arginine, Vitamin E and other nutrients supportive of male potency.
