The effect of diet on sexual health
Candidiasis, breast and cervical cancer and menstrual problems can be improved to some extent with nutritional interventions and reduce their symptoms.
Recent studies on men have made the benefits of a proper diet more clear than ever in the prevention and treatment of male infertility, loss of libido, prostate gland disorders, and heart disease.
A balanced diet is the basis of the health of men and women, but it is also very important to ensure that the specific nutritional needs of women and men are met during certain periods of life.
Young women should be careful about getting enough sources of calcium and iron, while men are advised to be careful about getting rich sources of zinc and selenium.

Saturated fats and sexual health
There are meat products, creams, cakes and biscuits that increase the blood cholesterol level and thus increase the risk of heart diseases in men and menopausal women.
Sugar and sexual health
Some women who are prone to yeast infections see significant improvement in their symptoms by severely limiting their intake of sugar, sweet foods, and even sweet fruits.
Limiting sugar in the diet helps kill candidiasis.
Yeast and sexual health
Foods that contain yeast or yeast extract, such as breads, alcoholic beverages, and dried fruits, should be eliminated from the diet of people who are sensitive to candida infections.
Sodium (salt) and sexual health
People who have high blood pressure, especially men who have sexual impotence, should avoid consuming a lot of salt.
They should also avoid processed foods that contain a lot of salt, such as salted meat, hamburgers, canned fish, vegetables, ready-made soup, sauces, flavorings, and salty seed kernels.
Atmospheric water and sexual health
Many evidences show that barley water contains a compound called xenoestrogen. This estrogenic compound causes male infertility.
Alcohol and sexual health
Alcohol is toxic to male reproductive organs and is effective in reducing testosterone, sperm count and sexual desire.
Consuming very small amounts of alcohol is also associated with an increased risk of breast cancer in women.
