Promoting a Healthy Penis Essential Tips for Penis Care Photo by John Dugan

Most men assume that as long as they are generally in good health, they will also have a healthy penis, and in most cases, guys give little thought to penis care beyond keeping it clean, and maybe rolling on the protection during intimate encounters. However, there is more to maintaining adequate penis function than eating right and exercising, and almost every man can benefit from the right attention to penis care.

The penile tissue is delicate, complex, and has numerous functions. While good overall health is essential, a quality penis health cream can also provide significant benefits for better function, not to mention a more attractive appearance.

What are some of the benefits of using a penis health cream?

Healthy Skin - The skin of the penis endures a lot of rough treatment, and in order to avoid cumulative damage resulting from application of harsh chemicals, not to mention heavy rubbing and chafing and an overall inhospitable environment, it needs some extra attention. Nutrients like vitamins C and A are important in building and repairing healthy skin and connective tissue, as well as maintaining the skin’s natural elasticity. Maintaining adequate levels of hydration through the use of a natural moisturizer (such as Shea butter, cocoa butter or jojoba oil) can help to protect the penile skin against the effects of drying and chafing.

Healthy Nerves - The signals of pleasure (or in some cases, pain) that are passed between the brain and penis rely on healthy nerve pathways to get the message through. Also important to penis function are the nerve signals sent by the brain that trigger the dilation of the blood vessels, which allow the erectile chambers to become flooded with blood when an erection is called for. In order to keep the signals firing, the nerve tissue needs nutritional support, as it relies on nutrients such as L-arginine and acetyl-L-carnitine to keep performing these critical tasks.

Healthy Circulation - It goes without saying that adequate blood flow is needed to fuel an erection; in top of this, good circulation is important in keeping the penile tissue oxygenated, protecting it against disease, and maintaining a satisfactory level of responsiveness to external stimulation (e.g., the touch of a hand). Supporting healthy circulatory tissue and prompting the blood vessels to expand and contract when needed means getting enough vitamin C, as well as an important but little-known antioxidant called alpha-lipoic acid.

Immune Response ­- The penis encounters some pretty tough environments - from the fairly acidic interior of a female partner to the warmth and humidity of a snug pair of shorts - not to mention the irritants found in fabrics, detergents, plant spores, and so on. Boosting the body’s immune response can help to fight off invaders like bacteria and fungus overgrowth that can cause extreme discomfort and loss of enjoyment of sex. Nutrients like vitamins A, B5, C and D are important elements in maintaining an adequate immune response.

A Question of Odor - Finally, no one wants to deal with a smelly penis; neither its owner nor any potential romantic partner. Keeping it fresh requires more than just a daily shower or swipe with a wash rag; extra attention to controlling odor-causing bacteria is also important in this respect. Vitamin A, which has natural antibacterial properties, can help to keep down the levels of smelly bacteria that can lead to a foul, fishy aroma.

Choosing the right product

Not all creams and lotions are made the same, and when it comes to promoting a healthy penis, choosing a product with the right ingredients makes all the differences. A quality penis health cream (most health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) should be moisture-rich and fortified with penis-specific nutrients such as vitamins A (for smooth, odor-free skin), C (for elasticity and healthy circulation), B5 (for proper metabolic function and cellular health), D (for disease-fighting properties), E (for healthy, hydrated skin), and amino acids (for nerve and circulatory health). In addition, a penis cream should be free of dyes or perfumes that can irritate the delicate skin.
