Sexual activity is a panacea for the body at any age and in addition to personal sensations, science is now confirming it.
As documented by the Medical News Today magazine there would in fact be as many as 10 areas in which having sex would lead to concrete improvements in health. Here are the main benefits of regular sexual activity.
Improve the immune system
According to research carried out by Wilkes University in Pennsylvania, having sex once or twice a week would boost the immune system.
Scholars have discovered that by doing so the body would produce 30% more of an antibody called immunoglobulin , compared to those who practice less frequently. Furthermore, it would appear that sexually active people are exposed to more infectious agents than those who are not.
It’s good for the heart
From a scientific point of view, sex is considered in all respects a physical activity that stimulates the heart and consequently is good from this point of view.
In fact, during intercourse, the heart rate increases and reaches its maximum beats with orgasm . This sort of training means that men with a regular sex life are 45% less likely to have a heart condition.
Moreover, unless further clarifications are given by your doctor, sexual activity is by no means discouraged for those who already suffer from heart problems because the effort it requires is comparable to that needed to carry out the normal actions of daily life.
Lowers blood pressure
This benefit would particularly concern women . Indeed, following a study conducted by the University of Michigan on a group aged between 57 and 85, it emerged that those who still had an active sex life were unlikely to suffer from high blood pressure .
Having sexual intercourse would also be an infallible method of combating migraines and cluster headaches , at least according to what emerged from a study by the German University of Muenster. Analyzing people who suffered from these disorders, the scholars have in fact discovered that having sex would lead to a marked improvement in 60% of migraine cases and 37% of cluster headaches.
The reason would be to be found in the fact that the embrace stimulates the release of endorphins in the brain , a sort of natural pain reliever in the body.
Reduces the risk of prostate cancer
In this case, men would benefit. Research done by the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda found that if a man ejaculates 21 times or more a month he has a third lower risk of developing prostate cancer than those who do it 4-7 times at the same time .
There are two possible explanations for this phenomenon. The first is that frequent ejaculations could allow the prostate gland to eliminate any carcinogens and other elements that could contribute to forming them. The second is that regular drainage of prostatic fluid can prevent crystalloid microcalcifications from forming in the prostate duct.
Perhaps not everyone knows it but male erections are not all the same and the penises are divided into Shower or Grower.
Some of the chemicals your body releases during sex can help you fall asleep more easily and stay asleep through the night.
This happens because during intercourse and orgasm, various chemicals flood the brain. Among these are oxytocin and prolactin , which combined together would induce drowsiness.
Stress is a state of being unwell which in turn can lead to many other health problems.
Some data published in Psychosomatic Medicine show that the physical or emotional intimacy of couples reduces stress levels and a psychologist at the University of Paisley, in the United Kingdom, has hypothesized that the calming effect may be caused by the emission of oxytocin.
Tantric sex can also be experienced to relieve stress and increase pleasure.
Enhance mental abilities
Research published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior argues that frequent sexual intercourse can improve memory in women , particularly for abstract words. The hypothesis is that this occurs because sex stimulates the creation of new neurons in the hippocampus , the brain area involved in learning processes.
Another study carried out by the University of Amsterdam also found that even just thinking about sex stimulates analytical thinking.
A study published in the journal The Bmj came to the conclusion that sexual activity can lead men to live longer .
To decree this, the scientists followed the mortality trend in 1,000 men aged between 45 and 59 for 10 years, noting that the risk of death was 50% lower in those who had frequent orgasms, compared to others who they had more rarely.
Finally, a satisfying sex life would also be beneficial from an emotional point of view. Research published in Social Psychology and Personality Science and conducted on college students found that those who had frequent relationships declared higher levels of self-esteem than others.
This aspect applies equally to men and women.
Sometimes, though, post sex blues can occur.
