In the modern world, it is quite problematic to find a man without bad habits. Although a healthy lifestyle is a guarantee of health and longevity. Every third young person smokes. Almost everyone is sure that cigarettes are not so harmful. In addition to the damage to the condition of the whole organism, male potency is also affected. Every smoker, sooner or later, develops erectile dysfunction. The harmful effects of smoking on potency are undeniable.
Harmful composition of cigarettes
Many smokers are accustomed to believing that the most harmful thing in cigarettes is just nicotine. All other substances, smoke, have no effect on the body. I would like to understand this issue in more detail. Every component that is part of cigarettes harms the human body, its potency. And nicotine, compared to other components, is just a harmless substance.
All toxic chemicals, together with smoke, are converted into volatile elements, which are deposited in the lungs of not only smokers, but also those around them. That is why they say that passive smokers suffer equally with everyone. Scientists have discovered that one cigarette contains up to 5, 000 such toxic elements. Most of them lead to the destruction of many organs and systems.
Many smokers believe that a filter on a cigarette will act as a barrier to the entry of chemicals into the body. It's worth breaking this myth. The filter retains only 30-40% of all harmful substances. In addition, when smoke is inhaled, the body suffers no less. So, in the composition of many cigarettes you can find the following components:
- Hydrocyanic acid;
- Radioactive substances;
- Carbon monoxide;
What we inhale when we smoke someone is nicotine. It is considered a kind of light drug. With a small dose, the person feels anxious, a rush of energy, resuscitation, mild dizziness. This effect disappears quickly enough. This encourages you to reach for a cigarette again. Just 3 weeks of regular cigarette smoking is enough to make you addicted to this addiction. Nicotine doses should be increased. This has a detrimental effect on the cardiovascular system, potency, hormones and the nervous system.
Cadmium is a heavy metal that settles and accumulates in the kidneys. Kidney poisoning occurs. It also leads to excessive bone fragility, leaching calcium from them. Lead is a particularly dangerous metal. It accumulates in absolutely all systems of the organism. It penetrates deep into tissues and cells. It spread with blood absolutely everywhere.
Methane is a poisonous gas. It often causes dizziness, nausea and vomiting. When a small dose of methane is drunk with a cigarette, the side effects will be almost imperceptible. But the element has a cumulative property. Phenol irritates mucous membranes. Because of it, smokers with experience are diagnosed with cancer of the throat, trachea, esophagus. These are not all harmful components of cigarettes that kill the human body. Therefore, before you reach for a cigarette, you have to think about the terrible consequences several times.
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 conventional ones. Therefore, they will not be able to save you from the disease. Their difference is only in the amount of harmful chemical ingredients. There are slightly fewer of them in a thin cigarette. But the whole spectrum of poisons is presented. So, the harmful effect of cigarettes on male potency, but also on the organism as a whole, is only a matter of time.
Cigarettes and male potency
Does smoking affect potency? It is safe to say yes. And not in the best way. Nicotine enters the blood vessels very quickly, allowing it to spread throughout the body. The substance also enters the bloodstream of the genitourinary system. Thus, under the influence of cigarettes, sperm activity immediately decreases. And the number of living people is generally declining sharply. Potency problems occur even at the level of spermatogenesis. Cigarettes can completely change the structure of emerging sperm.
It has long been proven that the activity of sperm in smokers is several times less than the activity of a healthy person. Therefore, in the treatment of such pathology, the first condition is the complete rejection of man from cigarettes. It has been determined that the more a young man smokes a cigarette during the day, the lower his potency. Erectile dysfunction begins to develop very quickly. Smoking one pack of cigarettes a day increases the chances of getting complete impotence by 65%.
Nicotine, which is found in all cigarettes, has a detrimental effect on the adrenal glands. They contribute to the release of adrenaline. Adrenaline is necessary to increase blood pressure and heart rate. With a small dose of adrenaline, circulation does not increase. Blood flow to the penis is simply impossible. Erection becomes too weak or does not occur at all. This is why cigarettes lead to multiple potency problems.
The effect of smoking on potency is also explained by the presence of carbon dioxide in cigarettes. It affects the walls of blood vessels, causing potency problems. With long-term cigarette smoking, the body lacks oxygen. Oxygen starvation of the genitals develops. The veins become thinner, which leads to their rapid blockage. The flow of blood into the cavernous bodies of the penis becomes simply impossible. Potency deteriorates sharply in the form of loss of erection after stimulation.
Cigarette smoking reduces the production of sex hormones. Low testosterone levels in men are the main cause of poor potency. In general, in the background of cigarette smoking, there are such problems with potency:
- male infertility;
- Poor erection;
- Lack of erection;
- Poor circulation in the pelvic area;
- Decreased sex drive.
Numerous studies have been conducted that show the effect of cigarettes on potency. So, when both partners smoke, the number of sexual acts is significantly lower than in the family of non-smokers. Also, the level of satisfaction from intercourse when smoking cigarettes is significantly reduced. Orgasm stops being great, sometimes it doesn't come at all.
The potency can be increased only with the complete cessation of smoking. But it is worth noting that the current result will not be. Long-term use of cigarettes has already caused irreparable damage not only to potency, but also to all organs of the male body. As early as six months after quitting cigarettes, you may notice positive changes in potency. Of course, one should not only say goodbye to a bad habit, but also completely change one's lifestyle. A healthy diet and sports activities will speed up the process of restoring potency. Specialists often prescribe additional medications to improve erectile function.
