Men struggle with penile health at some point in their life and when it comes to the health of your penis, it involves more than only erection, ejaculation and reproduction.

Did you know that bad penile health can be a sign of an underlying health condition? Issues affecting your penis can impact other areas of your life including emotionally and socially.

Liken to servicing your car, at the end of the day, routine maintenance ensures optimum performance.

Here are five common foods that will help you strengthen your penile health:


Healthy men have strong hearts, so eat bananas for potassium, which is great for keeping your heart and circulation in top form. Aside from reducing your risk of heart problems, potassium keeps your blood pressure in check by stabilizing sodium levels. If you’re someone who eats a lot of salt, start stocking up on bananas.


Most of us already know that omega-3 fatty acids in oily fish are great for keeping one healthy. But did you know omega-3 fatty acids can also make blood less sticky, therefore enhancing blood flow to the parts that matter? *wink* High-fat fish such as salmon, mackerel, trout and fresh tuna can keep your arteries well-oiled if you consume them on a regular basis (twice a week).


When cherries are in season, these beautiful berries are not only good for pies. Cherries are packed of anthocyanins, plant chemicals, which protect your artery walls and help to prevent fatty plaques from forming in your arteries.


Red wine is a great source of the antioxidant phytochemical resveratrol, which helps open the arteries by enhancing the production of nitric oxide. Ever wondered why some of us get flushed when they’re sipping on wine? The production of nitric oxide allows the blood vessels to expand, and increases blood flow. In regards to penile health, the antioxidant phytochemical resveratrol works like Viagra by expanding your tiny and main arteries. But like all things, wine should always be consumed in moderation – you don’t want to be drunk when it’s time for the deed.


Your mom was right! Eating porridge is great for your health. The soluble fibre in oatmeal sucks up cholesterol and helps keep your blood vessels smooth, healthy and stretchy – which results in a health manhood as well.
