Health Benefits of Sex

Health Benefits of Sex
No one can ever say NO to it—yes, I am talking about Sex. Though it occupies the human mind unlike anything else, it seems that most people don’t realize that sex isn’t just about fulfilling your carnal desires.
There is sufficient, unquestionable scientific proof that underlines the health benefits of sex. In fact, sex surfaces as one of the most comprehensive and effective activities you can indulge in from a health perspective.
Let’s take a look at the major benefits you get when you have sex.
Sex Boosts Your Immunity
Sex at any time in a woman’s monthly cycle may trigger immune system changes that boost the likelihood of getting pregnant. For starters, the act raises the synthesis of immunoglobulins. These are antibodies or the immunity compounds that help us fight infections. People with a more-than-basic level of sexual activities, say once per week, tend to retain a higher immunoglobulin concentration, making them more immune to common infections.
Sex Is An Instant Pain-killer
A team of neurologists once came up with the verdict that sexual activity can lead to ‘partial or complete relief’ of head pain in some migraines. The feeling of happiness that accompanies and follows intercourse is due to the rise in the secretion of endorphins. These hormones are required for establishing a relaxed state of mind. Sex also induces the release of oxytocin, which, along with endorphin, is one of nature’s most potent painkillers
Sex Alleviates Common Infertility Problems
With stressful lifestyles, many men are prone to suffering from lowered sperm count or poor semen quality. These are serious barriers for couples trying to conceive. Researched has shown that regular and enjoyable sex helps men to overcome these issues. Their semen improves in quality and quantity and the stress-relieving properties of sex ensure that their sperm is healthier, more fertile and penetrable. The act of sex ensures that blood is properly circulated across the body, including the penile tissues, and absorption of nutrients is more uniform.
Sex Relieves Stress
Overall reduction of stress is perhaps the biggest, most widely-accepted benefit of sex. It is believed that higher anxiety and stress levels are responsible for initiating most health problems prevalent today. With regular sex, psychological health is improved, particularly problems related to mood swings, depression, and sleep. The act of intercourse helps to stimulate the production of hormones that are required for overcoming stress and ensuring healthier behavior.
Sex Keeps You Physically Fit
Sex has an amazing calorie-burning and cardiovascular conditioning effect. It exercises nearly every muscle of the body, including areas like the abdomen, hips, and thighs that are the common weight-gain areas for most people. Sex might not help you become muscular but it works-out the body in a beautiful manner.
The increased supply of blood means that the body has a greater chance of eliminating waste products and providing nourishment in a more balanced manner to various organs. Increased levels of sexual hormones help to fortify the muscles and bones with critical nourishment. These hormones help to prevent the onset of heart diseases. Working the pelvic muscles, intercourse helps to prevent conditions like incontinence and hernias.
Sex Gives Your Skin A Unique Radiance
It is usually thought that only women have the after-glow that is essentially a result of their hormones being produced aplenty during sex. However, this is applicable to men too. Yes, sex behaves like a psychological and physical boost for the human body.
As the circulation of blood rises, more oxygen is pumped into the body and sex hormones are released copiously. The result is a sort of radiance that the best of moisturizers and makeup kits cannot compete with. It seems to take off years from your face, making you appear refreshed and cheerful.
