Recently, our leading dietologists and nutrition specialists publicized a list of top 7 products, which can help modern men stay healthy for life, be active and always in a good physical shape.
- Oysters. Oysters and other sea products are considered to be powerful sexual stimulants. It is absolutely true, because those eatable soft tissues of oysters, mussels and lobsters have very high content of proteins and various microelements necessary for good men’s health. In addition, oysters contain great amounts of zinc, an important microelement and antioxidant, which is claimed to protect against negative chemical processes and cellular damage in male body and prevent prostate cancer. Enjoy eating oysters, however, do not forget to cook them well in order to avoid swallowing salmonella or other harmful bacteria.
- Walnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds and other nuts. Specialists discovered that these products have excellent properties to support men’s potency. Besides, nuts contain selenium and magnesium, known as very effective antioxidants able to improve prostate health, as well as prevent heart disease and various forms of cancer. Selenium can be of a great assistance for lowering the level of bad cholesterol in your blood. Remember that nuts are very high-fat products: for example, Brazil nuts contain up to 70% of fat. Therefore, eating a lot of them can be harmful to your health. Specialists suggest that an ideal daily dose is about 25 g of nuts. But, in order to receive maximum effects, you can mix some ground walnuts and almonds with honey, and eating a tablespoon of this mixture in 2-3 hours before the bedtime will turn you into a real Casanova.
- Broccoli. This is a very useful natural green food, which contains Vitamin C, potassium, beta-carotene and sulphoraphane, a phytochemical with excellent anti-cancer properties (in particular, it is proven effective to prevent prostate and colon cancer). In addition, eating broccoli considerably lowers the risks of having bladder cancer, which occurs 3 times more frequently in men than in women. Finally, this miraculous green vegetable can help you control the level of homocycteine and lower the risks of having a heart disease, stroke and other heart-related problems. If you are not much of a fan of broccoli, you can substitute it with another green vegetable, such as Brussels sprout, cabbage or cauliflower.
- Pomegranate. This is an unprecedented food for men’s health. Pomegranate can protect your prostate health and substantially decrease chances of having prostate cancer. Besides, pomegranate is a powerful stimulator of male potency. American specialists recently found out that pomegranate juice has the same effects as famous Viagra! Experiments demonstrated that drinking a glass of pomegranate juice every day can have miraculous positive effects on your potency. In addition to that, pomegranate has very good diuretic, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and palliative properties. It is one of the most useful foods for preventing various problems with cardio-vascular system.
- Salmon. Salmon is a great source of Vitamin D and Omega 3 fatty acids. These elements can lower the risks of having prostate cancer and improve men’s immune system, as well as help to control cholesterol levels in blood, normalize blood circulation and general function of cardio-vascular system.

Instead of salmon, you can also eat other types of oily fish, such as tuna, herring, sardines and so on.

That is why this food is essential for every man, whose profession is connected with hard physical activities, or for all athletes and bodybuilders.
