In the modern world, it is quite problematic to find men without bad habits. Though a healthy lifestyle is a guarantee of health and longevity. Every third of the young people smoked. Almost all of them are sure that cigarettes are not so dangerous. In addition to endangering the condition of the whole organism, the male potential is also attacked. Every smoker, sooner or later, experiences erectile dysfunction. The harmful effects of smoking on the potential are undeniable.
Harmful composition of cigarettes
Many smokers are accustomed to believing that the most dangerous thing in cigarettes is simply 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 a cigarette damages a man’s body, its potential. And nicotine, compared to other components, is just a harmless substance.
All toxic chemicals are converted into volatile elements along with smoke, which are stored in the lungs of not only smokers, but also those around them. That is why they say that passive smokers suffer in the same position as everyone else. Scientists have found that there are up to 5 thousand such toxic elements in one cigarette butt. Most lead to the destruction of many organs and systems.
Many smokers believe the filters on cigarettes will act as a barrier to the entry of chemicals into the body. It is desirable to dispel this myth. Filters only retain 30-40% of all harmful substances. In addition, when smoke is inhaled, the body suffers no less. Therefore, in the composition of many cigarettes, you can find the following components:
- Hydrocyanic acid;
- Radioactive material;
- Carbon monoxide;
What we inhale when we smoke someone is nicotine. It is considered a kind of gentle medicine. With a small dose, a person feels restlessness, energy surges, uplift, mild dizziness. This effect disappears fairly quickly. This encourages you to reach for your cigarettes repeatedly. Just 3 weeks of smoking regular cigarettes is enough to become addicted to this addiction. The dose of nicotine needs to be increased. This has adverse effects on the cardiovascular system, potency, hormones, and nervous system.
Cadmium is a heavy metal that settles and accumulates in the kidneys. Kidney poisoning occurs. Also, it leads to excessive bone fragility, washing calcium out of it. Lead is a very dangerous metal. It accumulates in all body systems. Diffuses deep into tissues and cells. Spread through the blood absolutely everywhere.
Methane is a toxic gas. It often causes dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. When small doses of methane are consumed with a cigarette, adverse reactions will be almost invisible. But, the element has a cumulative nature. Phenol irritates mucous membranes. It is because of him that an experienced smoker is diagnosed with cancer of the throat, trachea, esophagus. These are not all the harmful components of cigarettes that kill the human body. Therefore, before reaching for a cigarette, you need to think about the bad consequences more than once.
Today you can find a large number of so -called "lightweight" cigarettes. Keep in mind that the composition of such cigarettes is similar to that of conventional cigarettes. Therefore, they will not be able to save you from disease. Their only difference lies in the amount of harmful chemical constituents. There are fewer of them in thin cigarettes. But the whole spectrum of poisons is presented. So, the harmful effects of smoking on male potency, and the body as a whole, are just waiting for time.
Cigarettes and male potential
Does smoking affect potency? It is safe to say that yes. And not in the best way. Nicotine enters the bloodstream quickly, allowing it to spread throughout the body. The substance also enters the bloodstream of the genitourinary system. So, under the influence of cigarettes, sperm activity immediately decreases. And the number of people living in general is declining sharply. Potential problems arise even at the stage of spermatogenesis. Cigarettes can completely change the structure of a newborn’s sperm.
It has long been proven that sperm cell activity in smokers is several times lower than in healthy men. Therefore, in the treatment of such pathologies, the first condition is the complete rejection of a man from cigarettes. It has been established that the more a young man smokes a cigarette during the day, the lower his potential. Erectile dysfunction begins to develop rapidly. Smoking one pack of cigarettes a day increases the chance of complete impotence by 65%.
Nicotine, which is found in all cigarettes, has an adverse effect on the adrenal glands. They contribute to the release of adrenaline. Adrenaline is needed to increase blood pressure and heart rate. With small doses of adrenaline, blood circulation does not increase. Blood flow to the penis is impossible. Erections become too weak, or do not come at all. That is why smoking leads to a variety of potential problems.
The effect of smoking on potency is also explained by the presence of carbon dioxide in the composition of cigarettes. It affects the walls of blood vessels, which poses a problem with potency. With prolonged smoking, the body lacks oxygen. Oxygen starvation in the genitals develops. The vessel becomes thinner, which leads to rapid blockage. Blood flow to the body of the penis cave becomes impossible. Potency declines sharply in the form of loss of erection when stimulated.
Smoking cigarettes leads to a decrease in the production of sex hormones. Low testosterone levels in men are a major cause of poor potency. In general, with a smoking background, there are potential problems with:
- Male infertility;
- Weak erections;
- Lack of erection;
- Poor circulation in the pelvic area;
- Decreased sexual desire.
Many studies have been conducted that show the effects of smoking on potency. So, when both partners smoke, the number of sexual acts is much less than in non-smoking families. Also, the level of pleasure from intercourse when smoking is significantly reduced. Orgasm is no longer bright, sometimes it does not come at all.
It is possible to increase potency only on condition of quitting smoking completely. But, keep in mind that there will be no immediate results. Long -term use of cigarettes has caused irreparable harm not only to potency, but to all organs of the male body. You can see a positive change in potency already six months after quitting smoking. Of course, a man should not only say goodbye to bad habits, but also change his lifestyle completely. A healthy diet, sports activities will speed up the process of potential recovery. Specialists often prescribe the additional use of medications to improve erectile function.
