Ok, I promised yesterday that I would talk a little more about intimacy and your health. Not your emotional health (though that’s a huge part of the benefit).
And yes, it feels good. But how good is it for your health? What can it do for your brain, your mood, your heart and more?
Let me count the ways.
We all know the connection between stress and health. It’s like a sponge that soaks up your life force, leaving you feeling wrung out.
The way to fight back against stress is to do things that naturally counteract the sea of stress chemicals in your head.
When you’re stressed, your cortisol levels are high. But during physical intimacy, your brain releases both oxytocin and endorphins.
This means feeling more relaxed, and even experiencing significant pain relief.
It’s kind of ironic.
“Not tonight dear, I have a headache,” is not the best way to demure… considering a study from 2013 showed one way to relieve headaches was… you guessed it.
Sex also releases higher levels of a hormone called prolactin, which plays a key role in getting a good night’s sleep.
And get this – older men who are sexually active have better cognitive function, and better memory. (And probably better memories too.)
It’s also good for your heart, in most cases.
One notable exception: men with heart disease have a higher incidence of heart attacks if it happens when they’re being unfaithful.
Serves them right.
Now all these benefits do require taking care of yourself. The healthier you are, the more pleasurable it will be, and the more likely it is to happen, as it turns out.
So all the things you do for yourself to protect your body also benefit your partner, as it turns out.
Exercise and a sound diet help build up testosterone levels, or at the very least, keep them from plummeting as men age.
You can also support your body’s own testosterone production… by fighting back against a hormone that becomes more prevalent in older men than it should: estrogen.
There’s a simple way to turn the tables on Mother Nature… stop runaway estrogen from stealing your manhood… and bring your sex drive and stamina roaring back.
The secret: a little-known estrogen fighter called Di-indolyl-methane, or DIM for short.
Don’t worry—despite the long name DIM is 100% natural. It’s found in small amounts in veggies like broccoli and cabbage.
But make no mistake. DIM is a powerful weapon in the battle against runaway estrogen.
In fact, studies show it fights this “feminizing” hormone in three different ways. You see, DIM…
- Zaps a nasty enzyme called aromatase. And that’s great news. Why? Because aromatase actually turns testosterone into estrogen! So the less aromatase, the less estrogen—and the higher your testosterone.
- DIM attacks excess estrogen contaminating your bloodstream directly. Studies show it converts “bad” estrogen into “good” estrogen. And good estrogen actually supports healthy testosterone levels.
- And it helps testosterone work even better by boosting your levels of free testosterone—the most potent form of this male hormone.
The result is more energy… a leaner body… and better performance.
Supporting your body and increasing your chance of intimacy isn’t selfish, or willy-nilly pleasure seeking. It’s a way to boost your health, and your relationship at the same time.
And that’s a win-win as far as I’m concerned.

P.S. Besides DIM, Ultimate Male provides another ingredient that’s powerful for a number of reasons.
A big one is it helps boost nitric oxide as well as testosterone. This herb has many names, including Yin Yang Huo, epimedium, or more commonly… horny goat weed.
Farmers observed goats eating this plant and then… well, you can imagine. But what’s good for the goat is good for the gentleman, as it turns out.
