Sexual Health: Foods for Longer Erection


Did you know there are foods for a longer erection? Dr Vijay Singhal, Sexologist with Delhi based Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute lists out different foods that you can eat for a longer erection.


Watermelons, papayas and bananas (rich in potassium) increase blood flow by dilating arterioles (small blood vessels) and thus help in improving an erection.

Nuts, milk and cheese contain zinc, which is good for the male sex hormone testosterone, which in turn is required for an erection.

Also, garlic and onion contain allicin,  which helps increase blood flow.

Similarly, dark chocolates contain flavanoids which increase  blood flow.

Cherries have been found effective in promoting health by scavenging action against free radicals. 

Walnuts which are rich in omega 6 fatty acids and arginine help in the production of nitric oxide, thus causing relaxation of arterioles and increasing the blood flow.

One must note that in some cases, diabetes leads to erectile dysfunction. Therefore, for diabetics, it is important to have control over sugar levels and maintain a healthy diet.

Also, patients who suffer from hypertension face erection problems and should try a low salt diet
