Bad Breath’s Relation to Erectile Dysfunction

by Cheryl Powers

Heavenly and cool breath can actually lead you to the ladies. It can give you confidence and it may attract as many girls as you like. For married men, good smelling breath can add to the sexual satisfaction of their wives. But are you aware that improved gums can also treat erectile dysfunction?

Yes, that’s true. A recent study shows the close relation between erectile dysfunction and periodontitis or the inflammation of the gums. It was discovered that curing gum problems can treat erectile dysfunction. It was a fresh study conducted on 120 participants in Turkey. The test proved that those who had been treated successfully for periodontitis were found to have lesser symptoms of sexual function problems. How is that so?

Well, it’s a simple logic. It was a long time ago when gum disease was linked to heart disease-it basically increased the risk of having heart problems. Heart disease, on one hand, has been linked to erectile dysfunction. Now you can see the indirect connection right?

All 120 patients in Turkey have both erection problems and periodontitis. What examiners did is that they gave half of the patients medication and treatment for the gum problems, while they did not give any to the other half. After three months, the group who were treated for periodontitis had been reported to have some improvement with their sexual dysfunction.

Other than curing gum disease, there are a number of natural remedies to treat erectile dysfunction. These include the following:

L-arginine can be found in fish, poultry, dairy and meat. It is also included in some supplements for erectile dysfunction.
