& SEXUAL HEALTH
The relationship between sex hormones and metabolic syndrome is bidirectional, with low sex hormone being a predictor of metabolic syndrome, which in turn is associated with a further decline in sex hormone levels.
Therefore, low testosterone and obesity creates a vicious cycle. Obesity impairs the production of testosterone, and lower testosterone makes it easier to store more fat.
Male sexual function is regulated by vascular function and impaired vascular function is closely related with erectile dysfunction. Vascular functions are positively influenced by physical fitness (i.e., aerobic capacity, muscle strength, and flexibility).
There is an association between physical fitness, assessed by measurement of VO2max and erectile dysfunction, where men with better results for VO2max had less erectile dysfunction.
VO2 TESTING & METABOLIC TRAINING FOR ED
When you are exercising, your heart and your lungs pump oxygenated red blood cells around your body
VO2 testing measures how efficient your heart is taking in oxygen, distributing it to muscles and organs, while expelling the negative by products
This score is the best indicator of cardiovascular fitness and metabolic health - which is closely linked to improving erectile dysfunction
With data from VO2 testing, we can provide individualized nutrition and exercise recommendations to help your fuel your body for peak metabolic health, and therefore improved sexual health
The link between metabolic health and sexual health is clear - let our trained professionals accurately measure your baseline metabolic health so we can target and improve your sexual health!
Epidemiologic studies have demonstrated that physical inactivity, obesity, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis, and manifest cardiovascular diseases are risk factors for Erectile Dysfunction.
