What is the use of fish oil for men?

In the 1950s and 1960s, the Soviet Union successfully completed studies that established the value of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) for the human body. Scientists have identified a lack of these substances in the human body. Such pathological conditions as rickets, night blindness, impotence at a young age, anemia of different types were associated with a shortage of these organic compounds in the diet of Soviet citizens. A natural, richest source of PUFA was a special food supplement. Fish oil for men is very useful. It contributes to a significant improvement in fertility, is the best prevention for the functioning of the heart muscle, provides a rapid build-up of muscle mass.

Once the leadership of the Soviet Union took immediate measures, including dietary supplements in the children’s diet. Since the USSR medicine was strictly socially oriented, it was of a mass, compulsory nature, the measures taken were widely spread. A valuable product was not liked by everyone for the unpleasant taste for many people. The situation was exacerbated by scientific discoveries that occurred in the late 60’s, refuting the myth of the unconditional value of fish oil for the human body. In 1970, a decision was made to exclude BAA from the arsenal of Soviet medicine.

Now fish oil has the status of an important, useful food supplement that can increase a man’s potency, make everyone better. Consider impartially the benefits and possible harm of fish oil for the health of men.

What is fish oil?

It is strange, but fish oil is not by all people identified with fish and products of its processing. Let’s draw an analogy with the sweets “bird’s milk”, in which the filling from a delicate souffle has the name of a product that does not exist in nature. People mistakenly believe that fish oil is a rare kind of vegetable oil or a product of food chemistry.

Fish oil is a natural product, a real fish fat. This dietary supplement is obtained in the process of heating fat from the cod liver. In this way, three product fractions are obtained: white, yellow, brown. The first fraction is the most valuable, it is used mainly for pharmacological purposes, it is from this type of fat that dietary supplements are created. The second fraction is used by pharmacists much less often. The third fraction is used exclusively for technical purposes.

Fish oil composition

Fish oil is a substance reminiscent of the consistency and color of refined vegetable oil. On this similarity ends – the composition of the product differs dramatically from the composition of any other edible fat in that it contains polyunsaturated fatty acids – Omega 3 (w-3), Omega 6 (w-6).

PUFA Omega-3, Omega-6

The name of these substances is related to their graphical formula, where on the so-called w-angle after the third and sixth carbon atoms there is a double carbon-carbon bond. In total, 11 acids belong to omega-3, the most important for human health will be three: α-linolenic, eicosapentaenoic, docosahexaenoic. To omega-6 also include 11 acids, the most important for the body – linoleic, arachidonic.

Both complexes of biochemical compounds are important for the human body – they contribute to the acceleration of metabolic reactions, the regeneration of tissues (PUFA is the building material from which the body makes the cell walls), affect the growth of the child and adolescent organism, contribute to the normalization and enhancement of male potency (affect the development of the main androgen in the male body – testosterone).

If we analyze the difference between w-3 and w-6, then the most significant difference in organic compounds will be their competitiveness – the w-3 value for the organism is much larger than w-6. This is reflected in the speed of synthesis of the necessary substances, the need and efficiency of regeneration processes, the construction of cell membranes, metabolism. Omega-3 is more useful than Omega-6.

Important! Excess PUFA can harm male health. w-6 promotes the spontaneous activation of platelets, causes them to stick together, get lost in the heap, contributing to the process of thrombosis. Excess w-3 can cause the development of autoimmune diseases, uncontrolled cell growth, prostatic hyperplasia (prostate adenoma).


Glycerides – the general name of glycerol esters (simple alcohol) and some fatty acids. Fish oil contains the following varieties of glycerides: oleic and palmitic fatty acids.

  • Oleic acid is a representative of w-9 unsaturated fatty acids. Insignificant volumes of it are synthesized by the human body. If there are w-3 and w-6 PUFAs, the human body will not need this acid as a nutritional supplement, since it is capable of producing oleic acid by itself by splitting omega-3 and omega-6. Oleic acid is important for health – it can regulate the level of “bad cholesterol” in the blood, reducing its danger. Normalizes the glucose content, reducing the risk of diabetes. Strengthens immunity, reduces the possibility of oncological diseases.
  • Palmitic acid is the most common substance in human food, everyday and necessary. It is synthesized by the human body.

Vitamins A, D

Vitamins are cofactor substances that are of great catalytic importance for any living organism. Thanks to vitamins, virtually all biochemical reactions are possible.

In fish oil contains two vitamins – A, D. Is this a lot or not? Are these coenzymes important or not? Note that in nature there are 33 necessary for the human vitamin, of which only three organisms are not able to synthesize independently – A, D and niacin. It is easy to understand the importance of these substances in the composition of fish oil for the health of any organism.

Consider in more detail the importance of vitamins A and D for health:

  • Vitamin A. Very useful, vital substance. Contained in animal products (retinol) and plant origin (carotenoids, xanthophiles). Vitamin A promotes the synthesis of various enzymes, immunoglobulin A, sex hormones, interferon, rhodopsin, lysozyme. That is, vitamin A is needed to strengthen immunity, renewal and growth of body tissues, normalization of vision, male potency. Coenzyme A – a powerful antioxidant, promotes the binding of free radicals, which prematurely age the body.
  • Vitamin D. This coenzyme helps the body absorb calcium and phosphorus, promotes the multiplication of cells and the synthesis of certain hormones. It is extremely necessary for children and adolescents, during the stage of body growth. Coenzyme D is partially synthesized by the body under the influence of solar ultraviolet (D3, cholecalciferol), but mainly enters the body with food (D2, ergocalciferol). In combination with vitamin A – an effective remedy for rickets, osteoporosis, anemia of various types.

Attention! Vitamin A of animal origin is more useful for the human body than vegetable – it is quickly absorbed, a more active metabolite. But retinol disintegrates faster than carotenoids and xanthophiles, becomes a carcinogen and has a detrimental effect. Therefore, fish oil is used fresh, rancid stale product is harmful to the body. Fish oil in capsules is stored longer, but we must carefully treat information about the shelf life of dietary supplements, because the spoiled product in the capsule can not taste and determine the degree of its suitability.

Trace elements: phosphorus, iodine, sulfur and bromine

Microelements are useful and useful substances. Phosphorus, bromine, sulfur and iodine are constituent parts of fish oil, but their quantity is so negligible that they do not bring any significant benefit to the body. The indicated fact does not prevent the producers of dietary supplements from indicating the listed trace elements as an integral part of the food additive.

The benefits and possible harm of fish oil for men of different ages

The rarity of polyunsaturated fatty acids in nature, their useful qualities, special coenzymes and microelements make fish oil a valuable food additive. This was also realized by the dietitians of the Soviet Union in the far 60s, by appointing BAA as mandatory for use in childhood. Why, in 1970, was fish oil recognized by Soviet scientists as potentially dangerous? It turned out that the abundance of PUFA in a young organism can lead to a dangerous pathology – male infertility.

It was necessary to find the negative properties of the substance, as the fish oil was declared the enemy of male potency. But the useful qualities of dietary supplements have not disappeared, it is rather a cure for male impotence than poison for it. Justice was restored in 1993 – fish oil was returned to the title of a useful food supplement.

And yet you need to understand in detail, in what cases and at what age dietary supplement can bring a man a benefit, and in which – harm.

A young man (from twelve to twenty-five years old)

A man, from a biological point of view, will be considered a sexually mature male, capable of reproduction. Men of different races, nationalities achieve this ability in the period from 12 to 14 years.

Is fish oil useful at this age and will it matter for the sexual function of a young man? Considering the role played by the constituent parts of fish oil for the growth and renewal of body tissues, the positive answer is unambiguous. The young man is in a stage of rapid growth, he badly needs all the components of fish oil. Proliferation of cells, the production of enzymes and hormones requires PUFA and vitamin A, the growth of bone tissue – vitamin D. Fish oil can help a child to become a man, a typical representative of his sex.

Harm to the health of a young man can bring an excess of dietary supplements in the diet for a long time (about a year). The abundance of PUFAs adversely affects the mobility, viability of spermatozoa, causing their mass death. The death of spermatozoa is programmed by the body, and, even if the fish oil is removed from the human diet, a pathology of male infertility arises. Only expensive, complex treatment can restore reproductive function to a man in such cases.

Important! It is necessary to monitor the intake of dietary supplements at a young age, carefully study the instructions and doses of the drug, consult a doctor.

A young man (from twenty-five to forty-four)

A man from 25 to 44 years old is at the most productive age. In normal conditions – healthy food, no bad habits, good ecology – it makes no sense to consume fish oil as a food supplement. If a man at this age does not lead the healthiest way of life – he eats poorly, is surrounded by bad ecology and works on a dangerous production for health – periodic consumption of dietary supplements will not be superfluous.

A mature man (from forty-four to sixty)

The age range from 44 to 60 years is the time when a man’s testosterone deficiency in the body increases, dyshormonal dysfunction appears, and men’s menopause occurs. PUFA omega-3 affects the synthesis of the testosterone hormone required by a man at this age. It also helps to improve blood flow, which is good for male potency. Fish oil is an excellent means of preventing prostatitis and prostatodynia.

Important! Recent studies of Russian medical science have revealed the effect of Omega-3 PUFA on prostatic hyperplasia, establishing a possible relationship between the development of prostate cancer and the level of this substance in the blood. Therefore, it is necessary to use the drug cautiously in those cases when benign formations of the type of prostate adenoma are found in the body.

A man’s life after sixty years

If you omit the influence of omega-3 on the hyperplasia of prostate cells, then fish oil can be called the most real medicine for old age. A powerful antioxidant retinol can significantly slow down the aging process. PUFAs of omega-3 and omega-6 will restore the cell population, restoring elasticity to the skin, elasticity of the muscles.

Vitamin D will help to cope with osteoporosis, making bones strong and young. And if a man over 60 is not threatened with prostate adenoma by the doctor’s conclusion, preparations based on fish oil are very useful for him!

Antibiotics. Application rules

A good time of the day, dear friend! The article will be devoted to the correct use of antibiotics. Antibacterial drugs are medicines, without which many infectious diseases that are successfully treated now would lead to death. For example, pneumonia. Previously, a huge number of people died from it, and now the death from pneumonia in the hospital department of a therapist is unacceptable, especially if it was a young man. Therefore, these medicines are a great blessing for humanity. They saved millions of lives during their existence. Now these drugs are freely available in pharmacies in Russia. Their availability is a plus, but there is also a minus – many people buy them on their own and use “as horrible”. From this, the result of the action of the medicine may not be the one expected. But I will tell you how to use ANTIBIOTICS RIGHTLY in this article. Go!

First of all, it is necessary to define antibacterial drugs and antibiotics.

If it speaks very simply, ANTIBACTERIAL PREPARATIONS are substances that destroy bacteria or contribute to stopping the division of bacteria. And ANTIBIOTICS is one of the groups of medicines that make up antibacterial drugs, the peculiarity of which is that they are formed by living organisms (bacteria, fungi, etc.).

It should be noted that viruses and fungi do not concern bacteria. From this it is necessary to draw an important conclusion: antibacterial drugs, including antibiotics, help with infection (infection is a disease caused by microbes, which include unicellular fungi, bacteria and viruses), ONLY CAUSED BY BACTERIA. From viruses and fungi, they DO NOT help. Therefore, for example, with herpes they will not help. But with pneumonia, yes. Because this disease is caused by bacteria.

To antibiotics carry quite a lot of different groups of drugs. All of them do not act on all microorganisms, but on specific ones. For example, there is such a bacterium – a stick of Koch (causing tuberculosis). The drug rifampicin will destroy it, and amoxicillin is not. Because the bacterium to the latter is not sensitive (that is, it is resistant to the action of the antibiotic). Just one antibiotic destroys a bacterium, destroying its wall (BACTERICID antibiotics), while others slow down the division of bacteria and thereby prevent their spread throughout the body (BACTERIOSTATIC antibiotics).

It was a very small tour of antibiotics. He needed to understand what kind of preparations they were. And now the RULES OF APPLICATION of antibacterial drugs. After all, these drugs are a powerful tool that we can use to the fullest extent, using these rules, and we can use it as an “ape with a gun”, who considers herself to be the most intelligent and tries to cure herself blindly, without knowing anything about the gun. But she could accidentally shoot herself. And this must be avoided.

Rule # 1. Antibiotics should be used STRONGLY by INDICATIONS.

The main indication for the use of antibiotics is a serious BACTERIAL infection. It is bacterial, not viral or fungal. For example, pneumonia with a few exceptions is caused by bacteria. Therefore, antibiotics in this case are shown. But with the flu in the early days there, because the flu is caused by the corresponding virus. Antibiotics do not work on them.

About serious infections. I have friends who drink antibiotics for a cold. Here is remembered bearded anecdote: “If you treat a cold, then it is cured after 7 days. And if left untreated, it takes a week. “The cold (for acute acute respiratory infection in the hospital – ARI) is a disease that our body can cope with without antibiotics. In addition, it is not a fact that it will be caused by bacteria, there are also rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal mucosa, accompanied by a runny nose), caused by viruses. It turns out fortune-telling on the coffee grounds. Do not forget that the use of the same antibiotic does not pass without a trace. Bacteria get used to them, and eventually the medicine does not work. The situation is similar to the baiting of cockroaches. For the first time the poison acts very powerfully on the negligent inhabitants of the apartment. The number of insects decreases sharply. But there remain those units that proved insensitive to poison. It multiplies and becomes very many cockroaches that are not susceptible to this poison. And you need to buy another remedy. The same thing happens with antibiotics.

Therefore, antibiotics should be used for an infection that really threatens health – pneumonia, cystitis, pyelonephritis, purulent inflammation, etc. And the cold will pass itself on febrifuge preparations in a week.

Rule # 2. In the early days, preparations of a WIDE SPECTRUM of action are used, and in the subsequent days, those to which the flora (bacteria) are sensitive.

A very important rule, which can fully apply, unfortunately, only in a medical institution. The fact is that there are antibiotics that kill VERY MUCH different microbes (for example, the drug amoxicillin), but there are those that act on single species (for example, anti-TB drugs only work on Koch’s stick). At the onset of an infectious disease, it is UNKNOWN what type of bacteria caused the disease (and there are a lot of bacterial species). Therefore, use drugs that kill as much as possible BACTERIA of different species. And they hope that as a result of such an “atomic explosion” among the innocent, “villainous bacteria” that caused the infection will die. This is also a fortune telling, but there is no better way out at the moment.

The most proven option is to take the environment of the organism where the infection occurs, before planting antibiotics (for example, the purulent contents of the wound). The detachable is placed on a nutrient medium, where the bacteria grow in a few days. So you can determine who caused the infection, the sensitivity of bacteria to antibiotics (in other words, which of the antibiotics is best destroyed by the specific bacteria that caused the disease). As soon as the results of the study become known, new antibiotics are prescribed, which more selectively destroy “malicious” bacteria. The analysis is done on average 3-4 days. Naturally, they do it only in a medical institution, and that is not always the case. Therefore, most often, a wide-spectrum antibiotic is used, which is chosen at random (at random).

Rule # 3. The rule of three days.

According to this rule, the effectiveness of the antibiotic is determined by 3 DAY from the moment of its appointment. The drug is canceled after 3 DAYS from the moment of stopping the symptoms of the disease.

If after the start of taking an antibiotic for 3 days the symptoms of the disease decrease: the fever stops, the degree of weakness decreases, cough, dyspnea, etc., it means that ANTIBIOTIC ACT on bacteria, and it is effective. The third day from the moment of admission is the last day, when the symptoms SHOULD decrease. If this does not happen (fever, cough, shortness of breath, weakness, pain in the muscles, etc.), it is necessary to CHANGE the antibiotic on another with a different mechanism of action (for example, bactericidal change to bacteriostatic), too, WIDE SPECTRUM action. Replacement is necessary, because you did not guess with the drug. Got that one to which the bacteria are already immune. And with an infectious disease, it is important early onset of therapy. You can not wait long for the infection to spread even more in the body, which will occur when taking a drug that does not work on microorganisms.

Antibiotics are usually discarded, usually 3 days after the TOMORROW of all symptoms of infection (fever, dyspnea, weakness, cough, etc.). In some cases, the reception continues further (with severe infectious diseases, which are treated in the hospital).

Rule # 4. Reception of antibiotic by the hour.

Reception of an antibiotic should be distributed on hours. In the annotation to any antibiotic in the section “Pharmacokinetics” the time of action of the drug is indicated. For example, the drug amoxicillin lasts about 6-8 hours. In order to permanently act on the bacteria antibiotic, you need to apply it continuously. In a specific example, every 8 hours, i. E. 3 times a day, strictly by the hour. Take the interval after 8 hours: 7:00, 15:00, 23:00. If the drug works every 12 hours, then it should be taken 2 times a day every 12 hours. I hope that the principle is clear. You can also focus on the indicator half-life. But I suggest the simplest version: in any annotation to the drug is indicated in what dosage and HOW MANY times you need to drink an antibiotic. Divide 24 hours by the number of the indicated receptions there, and it becomes clear in what intervals you need to drink the medicine. For example, it is indicated 6 times a day – 24 hours: 6 = 4 hours. Therefore, every 4 hours you need to take an antibiotic. If indicated once a day – every 24 hours, etc. An important rule that many do not follow. But if the concentration of the drug in the blood is not constant, it can lead to the fact that in some hours on the bacteria the drug will not function. And this can lead to the development of SUSTAINABILITY of microorganisms to the destructive effect of the drug. This can not be allowed.

Rule # 4. Use together with antibiotics drugs to eliminate the symptoms of an infectious disease.

To eliminate the symptoms of the disease, other drugs are used together with antibiotics. For example, with pneumonia, the main symptoms are fever, dyspnea, cough with phlegm, and chest pain is possible. To eliminate fever, they use the drugs, sputum, sputum, spleen for faster separation of sputum, pain in the groin, anodyne drugs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs – NSAIDs, which are also antipyretic and anti-inflammatory). This is necessary to alleviate the condition of the patient, as well as a speedy recovery.

Rule # 5. After a course of antibiotics, restoration of the intestinal microflora with probiotics is shown.

A rule that most people never follow. The fact that antibiotics besides “harmful” bacteria also affects “good”, which are in our gastrointestinal tract. A set of beneficial bacteria is called a normal microflora. This microflora performs a lot of useful functions – it protects the gastrointestinal tract from the growth in it of “harmful” bacteria due to competition with them, forms some vitamins, participates in the digestion of certain nutrients, stimulates immunity, etc. When using antibiotics, part of this microflora also perishes , since the drug acts on many types of bacteria (a wide range of action). And this leads to the development of DYSBACTERIOSIS of the intestines. The condition may not be manifested in any way, but it can also lead to the development of infections of the gastrointestinal tract (since instead of the dead microflora, many “harmful bacteria” enter the food that inhabit empty spaces in the intestine), dyspeptic disorders (bloating, diarrhea or constipation, a violation of the assimilation of nutrients), a decrease in immunity. Dysbacteriosis of the intestine – this is not a disease, it can be in varying degrees – from mild to severe. But it is precisely known that after taking antibiotics, it develops in 99.9% of cases. To prevent this, AFTER THE ANTIBIOTICS COURSE, PROBIOTICS are used – preparations containing living beneficial bacteria. For example, such drugs include linex, bifidumbacterin, lactobacterin, etc. Reception should be from the day of antibiotic cancellation DURATION for at least 21 days. New beneficial bacteria in the medicine will take the place of the dead. And the dysbacteriosis will be eliminated.

Rule # 6. When using a combination of antibiotics, drugs with different mechanisms of action and side effects should be used.

This rule is intended for doctors. Since combinations of antibiotics are produced in serious infectious diseases, which must be treated in the hospital. But for general development, it can be taken into account that when antibiotics with the same side effects are used, summation of unwanted reactions of the body to the drug may occur. And also, that the effectiveness of drugs with different mechanisms of action is greater than when using antibiotics with the same action.

Rule # 7. With the duration of effective intake of antibiotics for more than 10 days, it is replaced by a drug with the opposite mechanism of action.

Here it should be noted that with acute infections that are treated at home, the antibiotic intake is usually no more than 5-10 days. Long-term use is already used in a medical institution, if there is evidence for this. Therefore, an ordinary person is not concerned with this. About how many days and at what dosage it is necessary to use an antibiotic. It is better to trust that information, which is indicated in the annotation to the drug.

You can also use drugs that stimulate immunity. If there is a desire. Do not also forget that to apply CONSTANTLY for the same infection (eg, a cold), the same antibiotic is NOT available. This will lead to the habituation of microflora to it. And in the end at some point the drug will not work. Therefore, if you use the same antibiotic more than 3-4 times, it is better to replace it with a drug from another group, also a broad spectrum of action.

I hope that the information was useful to you. Now you know how to properly use this powerful tool against infection – antibiotics. Be healthy, dear friend.

10 reasons to lie down and take a nap during a working break

Extra sleep can strengthen your memory, relieve stress and improve the quality of your sex life. In the office, of course, you will look crooked, but do not give up, defend your right to sleep – the Japanese generally do it all.

1. You will make up for a lack of sleep

Let’s admit, you hardly ever sleep the recommended 7-9 hours every day, right? Nedosyp badly affects your productivity and stress resistance, as a result – your effectiveness is reduced. So that you know, lack of sleep has the property of accumulating, and a short nap during lunch break is a great way to cope with it.

2. You will become smarter

German scientists found that after a short sleep, new material (book, film, master class) is remembered five times better! In other words, while you are asleep, the brain processes the acquired knowledge and densely compacts them in the head. Admit it, you used to lecture this when you were a student?

3. You will not be gorged

The less you sleep, the higher the probability that you will gain weight – with such data were made by scientists from Stanford University (USA). Lack of sleep causes your body to require more food to make up for energy. In addition, with a lack of sleep, the level of leptin, the hormone responsible for feeling full, decreases.

4. You will cope with stress.

Stress leads to increased blood pressure, which means it can cause a heart attack, stroke and even erectile problems. But, as American scientists have discovered, daytime sleep helps to cope with anxiety.

5. You will be more gentle

Constantly arguing with a friend? The reason may be a lack of healthy sleep. A recent study showed that only one sleepless night can aggravate a family conflict. Why? Your ability to read her emotions worsens, and irritability grows. That’s why.

6. You will live longer

People who sleep less than six hours a day are more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease. Scientists believe that the fault is stress (to a certain extent, as you understand, from the constant lack of sleep).

7. You’ll be better in bed

If you sleep less than five hours a day, your testosterone level may drop by 10-15%. A lack of testosterone leads to a decrease in sexual appetite, liquefaction of sperm and problems with erection. Oh, how!

8. You will keep your sanity

Lack of sleep increases your chances of getting false memories. A US study showed that regularly undetectable people are more likely to see non-existent details in the photographs after they have been told about them. In other words, the criticality of perception in an asleep person is extremely low.

9. You will be in the best shape

Take a nap, and your training will pass at altitude. A Stanford University study proves that athletes who slept more, achieved higher results in the sprint, showed greater endurance, and they had a lower pulse. Their training was generally better. Scientists say that the majority of visitors to gyms do not adhere to a sleep regime sufficient for recovery after training.

10. Your skin will thank you

In the sleepy person, the facial features are thinned, the skin acquires an uneven shade and begins to peel off. Sleepless nights accelerate the aging process, reducing the ability of your skin to regenerate.

13 phrases that it is better not to say in the doctor’s office

1. Something you, the doctor, some shabby. Are you REALLY a doctor?

If the doctor did not like you – appearance, manner of speaking, strongly intelligent look or vice versa – do not tell him anything. Make a note to another Aesculapius. As one of the medical luminaries used to say, there are three of you in this situation: the patient, his illness and his doctor. If a patient with a doctor can not unite, wins … Well, let’s not talk about sad things.

2. Yesterday on the site lechu-ot-vsego.ru I read that cough and hiccups are the first symptoms of cholera … Is it true?

Hypocrisy doctors do not like. Because they are hurting exactly what they should, in their opinion, be sick. And this is not treated. The most useful medicine in such cases is a placebo. But, on the other hand, if the patient finds out about it, the doctor can not avoid troubles.

3. Here, you know, one came to you, said – I have a face. But I did not believe him

If the diagnosis given by the previous doctor for some reason causes doubts in you – do not talk about it. Let the new doctor deal with you on the basis of symptoms. At the same time, you will have the opportunity to compare.

4. You are such an easy, so aerial – assistant proctologist ?!

Do not make ambiguous compliments long-legged assistant in the presence of her patron-doctor. The case may end in a big scandal, but for you – with self-mutilation.

5. Actually, I lead a fairly respectable lifestyle. I had a conditioner on the order in the “bracelet”, and in the watch a strap from the leather of the possum – that there was no allergy

Do not tell me about your financial situation. The doctor, especially in a commercial clinic, is also a person who sincerely believes that a couple of general large-scale surveys will not hurt the health of a completely healthy patient or his personal well-being at all.

6. That’s about the same as now, I was in childhood – I was sick with chickenpox. And something similar, only without colic, was on Goa, when I was poisoned with coconut milk …

Answer clearly, as in the army: where it hurts, where it ekes, scores and worries, without unnecessary pictorial details. If necessary, the doctor himself will ask what you were sick in childhood. Otherwise, you will only confuse him. And in general, in anticipation of reception try to formulate claims to your own organism is extremely clear.

7. As it says, the doctor, “Mens san en in corpore san”, is not it?

Do not try to flash erudition, using in conversation with the doctor winged Latin expressions. A rare physician retains good memories of passing the exam in Latin. The only phrase that any graduate of the medical school will fully understand: Fortuna non penis – in manus non tenis (“Luck is not a member – you can not hold it”). So do not say it. Otherwise, they suspect that you are a colleague, for some reason trying to hide it.

8. Ah, a year ago I had a familiar dentist, here he treated so treated! Unfortunately, I went to America

Do not try to protect the professional merits of the former dentist, even if you have the opportunity to do so. That is, if you are allowed to close your mouth, spit and do not force to open it again.

9. So are you only a candidate? I really thought, at least the doctor of sciences …

In fact, the candidates defend on the example of successful treatment of a very specific ailment. That is, the practical experience of the candidate is guaranteed. Dissertations the same doctoral are written most often on the basis of generalizations and theoretical conclusions. And sometimes quite a long time.

10. Tell me, what if I turn to shamans? They say that they have a psionic factor in their urine, from which the ulcer itself cicatrizes itself

About methods of alternative medicine start talking only after you make sure that the doctor does not feel to them a feeling of deep dislike. It’s easy to find out. For example, say that rinsed the throat with tincture of calendula or drank tincture of ginseng.

11. You know, chills and migraine – not all … I sometimes think that there, in the corner, someone is sitting and strangely breathing

Do not scare the local therapist with stories about what you see, see or hear. You risk being directly directed to a psychiatrist.

12. You are so cute, doctor! But my current girl says that I’m not sick at all, it’s just that the lower chakras are hammered

In conversation with female doctors, try not to mention other women and especially their opinion on your health. Even life-hardened urologists prefer to hear from patients dry stories about sex and partners, and not about girls and rough unforgettable sex.

13. To admit, almost every day I introduce, you know, a hundred grams. And what, they say, is useful for blood vessels!

If the matter has not reached the reception of an expert in narcology, do not rush to admit that because of the specifics of the work you often have to drink. Doctors do not like it. What is the point of treating a person who drives himself to the grave?



Representatives of official medicine advocate constant sexual relations among men of all ages. Moreover, there is a claim that regular sex life is an integral part of men’s health.


Regular sexual life is recommended by urologists as an obligatory condition for the treatment of chronic prostatitis!

However, this is true, for the most part, for the therapy of congestive forms of prostatitis, and not bacterial. So, during the course of treatment and for several months after it, it is recommended to have regular sexual relations. Rhythmic filling and emptying of the prostate, according to urologists, contributes to the enhancement and preservation of its functionality. This is especially true for men of middle and older ages, when manifestations of prostatitis are most frequent.


Long-term sexual abstinence (from several years), according to doctors, can lead to a complete inability to commit sexual intercourse. This effect can be caused by “turning off” the erectile function, as if a person did not use muscles, and they gradually atrophied.

Regarding the change in the hormonal background during abstinence, one of the studies showed the maximum increase in endogenous testosterone in men on the 7th day of abstinence, after which the level of the hormone gradually decreased to the initial level. However, there is no evidence of the effect of prolonged sexual abstinence on the level of sex hormones.


A sedentary lifestyle associated with work or other causes is one of the precursors of modern diseases: obesity, cardiovascular pathologies, metabolic syndrome, etc. Sexual contact, in addition to satisfying carnal pleasures, is some form of physical activity, contributing to the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, Cardiovascular diseases.

It is difficult to say how significant such a contribution is in preventing general hypodynamia and heart pathologies, but doctors tend to regard sex as one of the pleasant types of physical activity, with all its positive properties.


On the impact of abstinence on the quality of sperm, there is no unequivocal opinion, since research in this area is controversial.

Opinion 1: In case of problems with conception, non-prolonged abstinence is recommended. This is argued by the fact that the amount of ejaculate (and spermatozoa) while increasing. However, it is important to understand that spermatozoa should primarily have the ability to fertilize an egg, that is, to be mobile. Their number only increases the chance that one of the spermatozoa will be able to do this.

Opinion 2: in case of problems with conception, rapid ejaculation is recommended. This is argued by improving sperm quality, by constantly updating spermatozoa and removing their “old” brethren.


Depending on the male’s sexual constitution, abstinence can lead to behavioral changes: in many individuals, sexual abstinence is manifested by quick temper and irritability. This behavior is typical of men with a high sexual constitution, when the lack of sexual energy releases causes internal discomfort. Depending on the sexual temperament, in some individuals, characteristic changes in behavior may appear after a few days of abstinence.

Some men are much easier to tolerate the absence of sexual discharge and may not notice any discomfort at all. Perhaps this is also associated with a low sexual constitution.


The first case, when medicine recommends refraining from sexual intercourse, is the presence of acute cardiac pathologies in men. In this case, sexual contact can cause death. Especially since the stories are already known such cases.

The second case, when medicine recognizes abstinence is appropriate and even desirable, is the rejection of illegible sexual relations, without the use of contraception (condoms). Such connections, in addition to the direct risk of infection with STDs, provoke the introduction of a foreign bacterial microflora with subsequent risk of complications if there is a weakening of the immune system.



In the Taoist sexual practices of antiquity, popularized by some modern authors, one of which is Mantak Chia, men sought to minimize the loss of seminal fluid. The Taoists believed that, together with the seed, the man loses his vitality, which could be used to improve the body, transform into creativity.

However, this does not mean that the Taoists did not have sex. On the contrary, their sexual contacts by their number and duration exceeded many of the reasonable limits of the present time. But how did they manage to save the seed and have sex? The fact is that the Taoists first discovered that orgasm and ejaculation are two different processes that can be separated at will, using special techniques. Such sexual practice allowed to have many orgasms in a row without losing ejaculation. As a result, the man not only did not lose sexual energy with ejaculation, but was additionally charged with it, receiving an orgasm without ejaculation, and also fully controlled the duration of the sexual intercourse and their number.

The ability to receive an unlimited number of orgasms without losing erection was called multiple orgasms in men.


Many examples of the use of Taoist concepts (perhaps not realized) can be seen in modern life. For example, the great boxer Mohammed Ali, abstained from sex several weeks before the upcoming fight, arguing this by preserving and multiplying the forces for the fight. This tactic has been adopted by many athletes of our time, and abstaining from important competitions is a common practice in amateur and professional sports.

Not only sports successes can be improved by saving and redirecting sexual energy. Many talented and non-ordinary personalities use sexual energy to improve their creative potential in such areas as art, business, self-development. In one of the bestsellers in the business literature genre, Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, one of the steps to prosperity is called as “The Mystery of Sexual Transmutation.” The essence of sexual transmutation is to channel sexual energy into the right direction. The author gives his observations based on the analysis of biographies of successful men, that many of them achieved success at the age of 50-60 years, when they learned to save and use their sexual energy to improve their creative potential.


Sperm contains a large number of substances important to the health of the body (ascorbic acid, zinc, docosahexaenoic acid, choline, vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium), which leave it during ejaculation. With frequent ejaculation, depletion of nutrient reserves is possible, which negatively affects overall health. In addition, the production of sperm consumes energy, which could be used to restore the body.

Abstinence promotes the reuse of seminal fluid, and due to this reabsorption, positively affects the health of the individual and his thinking abilities.


What conclusions can be drawn based on all of the above? First of all:

  1. Unintelligible sexual intercourse without the use of contraception uniquely detrimental to the health of men;
  2. Your frequency of sexual life should match your sexual constitution, that is, for each man there will be an optimal rhythm of sexual life, which you must adhere to. Forcing or reducing the number of sexual acts with respect to your sexual constitution can have a detrimental effect on physical and emotional health. For middle-aged men, the so-called conventionally physiological rhythm is the norm, the frequency of sexual acts at which it reaches 2-3 times a week. However, if your needs are not written out in a given amount, forcing will only lead to fatigue;
  3. Sexual energy can be used to improve creative and athletic performance.




Sleep for 6-8 hours a day. This is just as much as necessary for sleep, and not at all the amount of time you spend in bed.

A deep sleep is the time of testosterone. Scientists who study sleep speak of its five stages, the so-called sleep architecture. Basically during sleep you go through the hour and a half cycles. The last 15 minutes of each cycle are restorative portions of deep sleep. With deep sleep our eyes move quickly. It is then that we see dreams; As if our eyes quickly look through the films projected from within.

Deep sleep is also part of the cycle with the maximum production of testosterone. It is at these intervals that men develop erections lasting an average of 15 minutes and repeating throughout the night at intervals of 1.5 hours. Therefore, men wake up (should wake up) with an erection (see “What is the lack of an erection in the morning?”). The quality and duration of deep sleep depends a lot in the physical and emotional state: resistance to stress, internal energy, including the production of sperm, strengthening bones, the emergence of ambition. In order to make a deep sleep much better, carefully follow the recommendations below.


The maximum production of testosterone occurs with absolute silence. If there are any irritating factors (any noise), testosterone production does not happen so intensively.

Use Earplugs. Sleep in absolute silence. Perhaps, you think that your bedroom is relatively free of noise. But in order to optimize sleep, it is necessary to go to extreme measures and use earplugs.

Use only high-quality ear plugs made of lightweight rubberized material. It easily bends and takes the shape of your ear. Such you will find in most pharmacies. Do not put anything home-made into your ear.

Using ear plugs, you can not hear the alarm bell, since you will sleep a deep sleep. Make sure your alarm is ringing loud enough to hear it.


Electric lighting is a relatively young invention. For many centuries a man lay down when the sun was setting, and rose with the rising. Now we can turn on the bright light at any time of the day. Our body has to get used to, and this violates the internal rhythms. Since our life is no longer connected with sunrise and sunset, the body suffers from excessive lighting. It is beneficial for production and economy, but absolutely not beneficial for quality sleep.

At night, most houses are penetrated by moonlight, street lighting and light from nearby houses. There are many curtains, curtains and blinds capable of reducing the penetration of light into your home. However, the most effective technique is a mask for sleeping.

Wear a mask for sleep. There is a difference between dark and absolutely black (like pitch). Sleep in total darkness. Use for this purpose an opaque mask for sleep (you can purchase it in any pharmacy).


A mandatory condition is the optimal temperature of male testes (3 ° C less than body temperature). For this, a man during sleep should be without panties, preferably not covering the lower body or covering himself with a warm blanket (sheet).

To sleep naked is not very convenient in a society of children. Limit the children from the bedroom, keep clothes close at hand or attach a fantasy and find another way out of the situation.


Keep the room at a temperature of 18-21 ° C and discard thick blankets. If at night you wake up from the fact that you are hot or you are sweating and throwing the blanket on the floor, it means that either the room or the blanket is too warm. In order to accurately measure the temperature in the room, get a reliable electronic thermometer.

Let your room be cool enough to make you feel comfortable.

Why sleep in a cool room? Let’s say that the temperature is too high (for example, 27 ° C). Your body, in order to cool, will sweat all night long. This means that more warm blood will be delivered to the surface layer of the skin, taking out the internal heat of the body outside. In this case, the blood flows from the warm, internal area, to the periphery. You take blood from the gland, which reduces its productivity.

And now imagine that the temperature is too low, say 10 ° C. In this scenario, your body thinks as follows: “It’s too cold and you need to sacrifice such less important areas as skin, fingers, legs, ears, etc. It is necessary to direct blood inside, to the most vital objects – the brain, the heart, And other organs, including the kidneys and glands. ” This is exactly what you need.

By cooling the room, you direct blood to important organs, including glands, using the natural ability of the body to direct blood flows to various parts of it. This ability of our body saves us life, when blood pressure rises in severe bleeding, and loss of blood decreases when a limb is lost.

Obviously, it is difficult to expect a good sleep at a temperature of 10 ° C. However, you can achieve the necessary redistribution of resources in the body at a comfortable temperature of 18 to 21 ° C. Stay cool.


  • No caffeine.
  • Do not overeat.
  • No tiring exercises (sex does not count).
  • No alcohol.
  • Do not smoke.
  • Do not drink much before bed.

Caffeine, tedious exercises and nicotine stimulate the nervous system and drive away sleep. When overeating, blood concentrates mainly on the intestines, instead of serving the genitourinary system. In reality, this destroys the quality sleep system, known as the sleep architecture.

Similarly, if you drink a lot of fluids 2-3 hours before bedtime, you can be sure that in the middle of the night you will have to wake up and go to the toilet.


If you wake up with a poor state of health, depressed and not rested, this indicates a decrease in hormone production at night. A good sleep in a good bed contributes to the production of testosterone, which restores and maintains the entire body. Do not undermine the capabilities of your testosterone by spending a third of your life on a too soft, cheap and old bed.

Invest in the purchase of good, durable and comfortable mattresses and pillows. People who work in the hospitality industry understand this and take pride in the quality of their beds. They invest a lot of money in the purchase of resilient and comfortable mattresses, which can even have special thickening, replacing the pillow. It is not necessary to buy a state-of-the-art heated mattress, which vibrates and bends at different angles, it is enough just to choose a reliable brand mattress that will last you a long time.

Sleep on a bed of the appropriate size. If your partner often bothers you with “acrobatic tricks”, get a big bed. Pets and children also need to sleep separately from you.

Having created all the necessary conditions for sleep, you will provide yourself a good basis for the development of male hormones.



Amount. The normal indicator of the number of sperm per 1 ml of sperm is about 20 million. But this is not the most important indicator, since only one sperm is needed to fertilize the egg.

Quality. A normal indicator of the quality of spermatozoa is not more than 50% of spermatozoa with a pathology of their total number, i.e. The number of healthy spermatozoa (with an oval head and long tail) should be greater than or equal to half of the total number of spermatozoa.

Mobility. In healthy semen, at least half of the spermatozoa should be mobile. Even in a completely healthy sperm, immobile sperm are present, and this is normal.



Alcohol, smoking, taking drugs reduces the concentration of spermatozoa. Long-term use can lead to infertility. Therefore, we must abandon bad habits, at least temporarily (3-4 months before conception). Just rejection of bad habits, can become a decisive factor in the normalization of spermatogenesis.


Nature arranged so that the birth of the offspring should take place in the most comfortable environment, in order to increase the chances of helpless progeny to survive. A stress is a signal to the body about unfavorable conditions. As a result, the function of childbirth is depressed.

Stress in men is a proven factor in reducing sex hormones and the number of sperm in the ejaculate.

Treatment of stress should be based on the elimination of the cause of the illness and psychotherapy, but not drug treatment, tk. One of the side effects of various antidepressants is a deterioration in the quality of sperm and sexual function in general.


Excess body weight is accompanied by an increased conversion of testosterone to estrogen, which primarily inhibits sexual function (see the relationship between obesity and testosterone). The pathological condition is the length of the circumference of the waist of a man greater than 94 cm.


It has long been known that the temperature of the testicles should be less than the temperature of the body, for this they are taken out. A tight, dense male underwear that presses the testicles to the body, creates unnecessary heating and prevents the development of sperm and testosterone. Men with infertility should avoid frequent baths, paired baths, taking hot baths.

Long stay in a sitting position also leads to overheating, besides, with constant sedentary work, blood circulation to the pelvic region is disturbed, which leads to a decrease in potency.

In the risk zone:

  • Foundry workers, furnace workers;
  • Office workers, whose profession assumes constant sitting;
  • Drivers, truckers.

To normalize blood circulation, you can do exercises for the pubic-coccygeal muscle, without even having to get up from the chair, i.e. It is convenient to do in any place (at work, transport, etc.).


A lot of men wear mobile phones in their front pockets, not suspecting that the phone emits electromagnetic waves that affect the quality of the sperm. If possible, remove the phone away from the testicles.

Another common mistake of men is to work with a laptop on your lap. This causes the testes to overheat. Work with a laptop at the table, then it will not have a detrimental effect on the quality of sperm.


The polluted air of large megacities reduces the speed of movement of spermatozoa. Permanent inhalation of vapors of toxic substances such as gasoline, paint, varnish, etc. Also affect the quality of sperm not for the better. Work with industrial and chemical drugs can cause temporary infertility.

Occupations of men who are at risk:

  • Workers of metallurgical and chemical industry;
  • Painters, decorators, finishers;
  • Employees of the furniture industry (paint and varnish work);
  • Workers in the agricultural sector (working with pesticides);
  • Builders;
  • Auto mechanics, the worker of refueling, washing;
  • Workers smoking smokestacks of the food industry.

In this case, you need to remember about milk, the molecules of which are combined with toxic compounds in the body, thereby neutralizing them. Selenium is another helper in the fight against poor ecology and working conditions. It has a detoxification effect on the body.


As in the case of a testicle trauma, an immune reaction against spermatozoa occurs, i. E. Antibodies, developed by the body to protect against infection, attack their own spermatozoa. To diagnose the disease, you will need to take tests and consult a urologist.

Adhere to these recommendations, and the chances of a healthy offspring will increase.



Nutrition plays a key role in the formation of healthy spermatozoa. Briefly, the rejection of synthetic products, fully formed as a result of human activity, and increased consumption of products created by nature itself (fruits, vegetables, herbs, cereals) will positively affect the function of spermatogenesis.

We include in the diet:

  • Vitamins

Vitamin E is one of the most important vitamins responsible for the fertility of a man and his sexual function. The minimum daily dose of vitamin E for men is 10-15 mg, but for medicinal purposes, the dose may well be increased by 2-3 times. Especially to get a daily dose of vitamin E is very easy: 50-100 g of nuts (walnut, almonds, hazelnuts).

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant for our body. The daily dose of vitamin C for men is 100 mg. Exceeding the daily dose will not harm Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, therefore surpluses will be excreted from the body together with urine. The daily requirement is covered: 20 g of dog rose, 50 g of red pepper, 100 g of parsley or dill, 120 g of kiwi, 200-300 g of citrus.

Folic acid (vitamin B9) is necessary not only for women during pregnancy, but also for men during conception planning. Although there is no confirmed data on the effectiveness of folic acid in increasing fertility.

L-carnitine (vitamin B11) and arginine. Potentially useful for increasing fertility in men. Contained in products of animal origin, nuts, pumpkin seeds.

  • Minerals

The primary importance in spermatogenesis and the production of sex hormones are zinc and selenium. Daily doses for men are 15 mg and 70-100 μg, respectively. These microelements can be found mainly in seafood, nuts (pistachios for replenishing selenium). There is also a complex preparation of selenium and zinc – Selzinc.

Also pay attention to products that improve blood circulation.

Exclude (severely restrict) from the diet:

  • Fatty foods.
  • Baking, baking.
  • Sweets.
  • Fast food.
  • Smoked products.


Active way of life and sports have not harmed anyone yet. Only it is necessary to adhere to moderate loads, do not play sports every day – 3-4 times a week will be quite enough.

Adhere to these recommendations, and the chances of conceiving a healthy offspring will increase many-fold.

How to accelerate the growth of the beard in home conditions?

Why does one have a beard, and do not have others?

There is simply no exact answer to this question, but there are several assumptions on this topic:

1. Heredity and genetics. Perhaps, this is the most obvious factor, why some people have an abundant growth of hair on their face, while others do not. But, some can exclaim: “After all, my father has a thick stubble, but I do not!”. The presence of vegetation on the face of the father does not mean that it should appear with you. Since genes are transmitted non-linearly, and you are not a complete copy of the father, it means that the gene responsible for the growth of facial hair can contain other information. But, nevertheless, the presence of dense bristles in the father is a good predisposing factor for the growth of your beard.

2. Your time for growing your beard has not yet come. If you are under 18 years old, then judge what vegetation on the face will be in the future still early. Yes, many peers can already have thick bristles, but this should not be an indicator. Everyone has their own time for puberty and maybe it has not come to you yet!

3. Your body does not have enough strength to form a new hairline. The reason for this may be:

  • Chronic diseases, weakening the body;
  • Incorrect and unbalanced nutrition;
  • Bad habits;
  • Stress, depression;
  • A constant state of overtraining;

and other.

Analyze the state of your health – if it is unsatisfactory, it can be the reason for the lack of hair growth on the face.

4. Low level of sex hormones. Since the beard is a masculine sign, for its appearance meets testosterone – the main sex hormone of a man. Insufficient level of testosterone may be the reason for the lack of vegetation on the face and body. But, the presence of a normal testosterone level does not yet guarantee to you a thick beard, since the effect of sex hormones can differ for two different individuals. For example, with the same level of testosterone in men, there can be absolutely different intensity and density of growth of the beard. This depends on the sensitivity of the receptors to testosterone and other genetic features.


These recommendations are equally effective both for stimulating the growth of already existing hair, and for activating the growth of new ones. To achieve tangible results, an integrated approach is required, which implies:

  • Natural methods of internal stimulation.
  • Hygienic and cosmetic procedures for external stimulation.
  • Use of special tools.



Indeed, a low level of male sex hormones (androgens) may be the cause of poor vegetation on the body and face. However, to begin with it is necessary to be convinced, that the problem really is in hormones. The most reliable way to know your testosterone level is to take a blood test. It can be done on a fee basis in any of the clinics that provide these services.

If the test for total testosterone showed poor results (see testosterone levels), it is necessary to visit the endocrinologist and understand the causes of the decrease in androgens. The doctor will prescribe the necessary course of treatment to restore the normal level of hormones. After that, you can expect to increase the growth of hair on the body and face.

For those who independently decided to increase their testosterone, we advise reading:

– Simple exercises to increase testosterone

– And other articles from the section “Testosterone and hormones”


In the concept of “healthy nutrition” we will include not only food useful for our body, but also products containing the necessary substances for health and hair growth. To form hair, proteins, amino acids, certain vitamins and minerals are needed. Replenishment of these substances can significantly improve the growth and formation of hair.

Vitamin A, C, E – these vitamins are needed in any case to maintain the normal function of all body systems:

  • Vitamin A – is necessary for the growth of the body, strengthens the hair, preventing their loss and fragility. Contained in carrots, broccoli, butter, cheese, sea kale.
  • Vitamin C – is responsible for immunity, improves nutrition of the hair. Contained in citrus (orange, lemon), pepper, kiwi, cabbage (broccoli, colored, red).
  • Vitamin E – improves blood circulation and delivery of nutrients to hair follicles. Contained in nuts, dried apricots, prunes, oatmeal.

Vitamins of group B – very important group of vitamins for health of hair. Of particular importance are:

  • Vitamin B7 (biotin, vitamin H) is perhaps the most important vitamin for hair health. Biotin is synthesized in our intestines in quantities sufficient for the body (under conditions of normal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract), and is also found in many food products. The most biotin in the chicken egg, oatmeal, peas, nuts.
  • Vitamin B9 (folic acid). Like biotin, folic acid can be synthesized by the intestinal microflora. It is useful not only for the health of hair, but also for improving reproductive function – there are data on the positive effect of vitamin B9 on the number of spermatozoa in men. A lot of folic acid is found in nuts (peanuts, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts), spinach, lettuce, beans, liver.

Minerals are an auxiliary building material for the hair, so you can not do without them if you want to grow a magnificent beard. The most useful of them are:

  • Zinc is the most important microelement for the male body. Really! A sufficient amount of zinc in the diet is able to solve most of the problems with men’s health (for more details on the role of zinc read here).
  • Calcium is necessary for maintaining the density of bones and the structure of the hair. A lot of calcium is found in dairy products (cheese, cheese, milk, cottage cheese), nuts, sesame, peas, oatmeal.
  • Iron – is necessary for hematopoiesis and strengthening of hair. Contained in nuts, liver, buckwheat.

Based on all of the above, we will compile a list of products useful for growing a beard:

  • Fruits and vegetables (cabbage of all sorts, pepper, carrots, beets, orange, kiwi);
  • Nuts;
  • Fish and seafood;
  • Greens and leafy vegetables (spinach, lettuce, dill, parsley, garlic);
  • Meat (chicken breast – a source of easily digestible protein, B vitamins, beef – a source of zinc, B vitamins);
  • The liver (chicken, beef, pork) is a source of zinc, and other vitamins;
  • Eggs;
  • Legumes (beans, peas);
  • Kashi (oatmeal, buckwheat);
  • Dairy products (cheese, brynza, cottage cheese) – a source of calcium, protein.

From what products it is necessary to refuse:

  • Sweet;
  • Salt (read about how much salt a man needs);
  • Caffeine;
  • Fast food.


Many men note that after they started going to the gym, the growth of facial hair accelerated. For many, this contributed to the launch of new hair growth. There is nothing surprising, since exercises with weights increase the level of testosterone. And to achieve from training the maximum increase in sex hormones, you should follow some recommendations:

  • Be sure to perform such exercises as squatting, deadlift, bench press, as it is the basic exercises that contribute to the maximum production of testosterone. Doing only isolated exercises on small muscle groups can not achieve a significant increase in the level of androgens.
  • Weight of burdens should be selected in such a way that for the approach it was possible to perform a maximum of 8-10 repetitions. The last repetition should cause maximum effort.
  • The duration of training should not exceed an hour. Occupations with weights increase the level of anabolic hormones (testosterone, growth hormone) responsible for muscle growth. After an hour of study, the situation changes to the opposite and catabolic hormones (cortisol), responsible for the destruction of muscles, begin to be synthesized into the blood.
  • Do not allow overtraining. The state of overtraining reduces the level of sex hormones. It is important to remember that muscles grow during rest, so the recovery process is as important as the training process. Train no more than 2-3 times a week, cycling the load on different muscle groups (so-called split-workouts).


It is necessary to stimulate the growth of the beard not only by internal factors, but also by external factors. Hair growth in many ways depends on the purity and condition of the skin. Here are some tips for future bearded men:

  • Keep the skin clean. For this, you do not need to use various means for washing. There used to be a lot of bearded men, did they all use tonics? It is difficult to imagine a peasant who smears himself with lotion every morning! In their arsenal there was only simple cold water. It is cold water, as it additionally stimulates blood circulation. So, in order to keep your face clean, thoroughly wash with cold water 2-3 times a day or as it gets soiled.
  • Use burdock oil. The method of application is simple: you need to take burdock oil (preferably slightly warmed) and rub it into the skin. After holding no more than an hour you can wash it off.The best effect is achieved if the burdock oil is mixed with red pepper – in addition to feeding the hair, the blood circulation to the hair bulb is strengthened. However, you need to be careful if you use pepper and do not overdo it with its addition. Otherwise, you can cause a strong red face. This procedure should be performed 2-3 times a week with the addition of pepper or every day only with burdock oil. Burdock oil can be bought at any pharmacy (see Figure 2). Its cost is about 60-80 rubles.
  • Another folk remedy: mix eucalyptus oil with water in a proportion of at least 1: 4 (1 part oil to 4 parts water) and apply to the skin with a cotton swab. After the procedure, rinse thoroughly with a skin without residues.


Minoxidil is the active substance of preparations for improving hair growth. Traditionally, minoxidil was used to activate hair growth on the head. A little later it was revealed that the drug also has a significant effect in activating the growth of facial hair.


The principle of minoxidil is to expand the blood vessels and increase blood microcirculation, which positively affects the development of hair follicles. This contributes not only to the appearance of a new hair, but also to the fact that the hair of the hair, getting increased nutrition, develops into a thermal hair – that is, hard and long.


Minoxidil – an effective tool for accelerating the growth of the beard, but still not a “magic pill”. The final result of the drug will depend on your genetic characteristics and the time of therapy. So, some people can have a noticeable result within a month after the beginning of the course, while others can only see the first results in a few months. Judging by the reports of people using minoxidil, the effective time for therapy is about 1 year.


The choice of the drug is determined primarily by the percentage of minoxidil. There are drugs with 2%, 5%, 10% and a large content of minicidal. We are interested in funds with a 5% content of minoxidil, since 2% drugs do not have sufficient efficacy, and 10% or more are too aggressive.

The form of the release of the means also matters. The most convenient form of the drug is a liquid spray, since in this case it is easiest to keep the dosage.

Xenical in the complex therapy of metabolic syndrome

Interest in the metabolic syndrome in recent years has increased dramatically from various specialists, due to the discovery of subtle molecular mechanisms of interaction of insulin and other factors in various target tissues. G.M. Reaven [5] associates the development of clinical signs of this complex syndrome with insulin resistance, so many suggest the name of the disease – “insulin resistance syndrome”. Indeed, numerous studies [1, 2, 4] proved the presence of hyperinsulinemia, as a compensatory state of the organism in response to insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is the disturbed sensitivity of peripheral tissues (liver, muscles, adipose tissue, etc.) to insulin. Insulin resistance is an inherited condition. The genetic predisposition to insulin resistance is associated with a gene mutation:

  • Insulin receptor substrate I (insulin receptor tyrosine kinase),
  • Glycogen synthase,
  • Glucose transporters II or IV,
  • Hexokinase II,
  • Protein binding the FFA (FABP-II).

At the same time, a hypothesis is advanced according to which insulin resistance is not the cause of the development of this syndrome, but also its one component [4]. The author came to this conclusion on the basis of studying the prevalence of components of the metabolic syndrome in different ethnic groups (black, white population of the USA and Americans of Mexican origin). Analysis of the data obtained suggested the presence of a different genetic factor in the etiology of the metabolic syndrome. Such a hypothetical factor was called “factor Z”, which, interacting with insulin sensitive tissues, endothelium, regulating system of arterial pressure and lipid and lipoprotein exchange, causes, respectively, insulin resistance, atherosclerosis, arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia.

The WHO working group constituting the components of the metabolic syndrome recognized the following symptom complex (1998): visceral (abdominal) obesity, insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, impaired glucose tolerance (STH) or type 2 diabetes, arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, hemostasis disorders, hyperuricemia, microalbuminemia.

The clinical sign of insulin resistance is considered to be the abdominal type of obesity, in which the ratio of the waist to the hip volume exceeds 0.95 in men and 0.85 in women.

The developed therapeutic approach to the treatment of the metabolic syndrome has not been found to date. As a rule, antidiabetic therapy occupies a central place in treatment activities. In the fight against insulin resistance in clinical practice, metformin is widely used in an individually selected dosage. When metformin is ineffective, its combination with sulfonylurea preparations, a-glycosidase inhibitors or nonsulfonylurea secretinogens is used. In complex therapy, hypolipidemic and antihypertensive drugs are recommended, along with diet therapy. However, the fact of the close dependence of insulin resistance on the degree of obesity is known. According to Amos et al. [3], insulin resistance is associated, more likely, with obesity than with diabetes mellitus. Therefore, an urgent requirement is weight reduction in patients with metabolic syndrome. A decrease in body weight of only 5% of the initial weight leads to improved glycemic control, lower blood pressure, improved lipid profile, and a 20% reduction in the risk of premature death.

Given the presence of insulin resistance and, as a consequence, hyperinsulinemia – antilipolytic factor, in the metabolic syndrome, it is natural to assume the difficulty of reducing weight in this category of patients. The presence of arterial hypertension in these patients is an obstacle for the appointment of anorektiky, oppressing appetite by inhibiting the reverse neuronal capture of catecholamines from the intersynaptic gap.

Among the drugs that contribute to weight loss, a special place belongs to orlistat (Xenical Online) – a drug that does not have a systemic effect, acting inhibitory to the gastrointestinal lipase. Xenical has a high lipophilicity and is readily soluble in fats. Due to this, getting into the body with food containing fats, Xenical mingles with drops of fat in the stomach, blocks the active center of the lipase molecule, not allowing the enzyme to split fats (triglycerides). Unclosed triglycerides can not enter the blood and are excreted with feces.

Suppressing the activity of gastrointestinal lipases reduces the absorption of fats, which creates a deficit of energy and helps to reduce body weight. Simultaneously, the number of free fatty acids and monoglycerides in the lumen of the gut decreases, which reduces the solubility and subsequent absorption of cholesterol, contributing to the reduction of hypercholesterolemia. In a placebo-controlled study of 52 weeks duration in patients with diabetes mellitus and visceral obesity (metabolic syndrome), when Xenical was used at a dose of 120 mg 3 times a day, the body weight was reduced by 6.2% from the baseline (Figure 1), at 4.3% In the placebo group (p <0.001). The use of Xenical in patients with metabolic syndrome contributes to the compensation of carbohydrate metabolism (by the end of 1 year of treatment a good SD compensation was achieved in 67% of patients, compared with 31% on a diet). A similar trend was observed and at the end of 2 years of treatment (Figure 2). At the same time, the daily requirement for oral hypoglycemic drugs in patients receiving Xenical decreased by 23%, compared with 9% in patients on a diet (Figure 3). Treatment with Xenical was accompanied by a decrease in insulin levels by 18% (8.7% on a diet). In cases of a metabolic syndrome with impaired tolerance to carbohydrates, a two-year therapy with Xenical reduced the risk of NTG and type 2 diabetes (Fig. 4). The study of the lipid profile showed a significant decrease in the level of cholesterol and lipoprotein compared to placebo (Table 1). After 1 year of Xenical therapy, the diastolic blood pressure decreased by 10.6 mm. Gt; Art. (3.6 mm Hg in the placebo group). The waist circumference (OT) after two years of therapy decreased by 5.8 cm (in the group receiving a placebo – 2.9 cm).

Thus, Xenical is an effective drug for treating patients with metabolic syndrome, and a decrease in hyperinsulinemia indicates a pathogenetically justified approach to the treatment of insulin resistance. Data from questionnaires of patients at the 52nd and 104th weeks of treatment indicated that patients receiving Xenical were:

  • More satisfied with treatment
  • More satisfied with the dynamics of their state
  • Less concerned about the fact of being overweight.

In 31% of patients taking Xenical, excessive fat release was observed, and the rate of defecation increased in 20.4% of cases. However, only 0.3% of patients discontinued treatment for this reason. Oily discharge from the rectum was noted in 17.5% of patients at 1.2% in the placebo group. It should be noted that these side effects were the result of excessive consumption of fat and, of course, indicate a high effectiveness of the drug. Xenical should be used with a moderately hypocaloric diet containing 30% of calories in the form of fats. In this case, discomfort from the intestine, as a rule, is not observed.


Le rôle de tadalafil (Cialis) dans la rééducation des patients après prostatectomie préservant les filets nerveux

Un nombre croissant de patients atteints d’un cancer de la prostate est actuellement réalisée prostatectomie, et devient donc préservation des nerfs problème particulièrement aigu de leur réadaptation, y compris la restauration d’une érection. Un moyen de traitement de première ligne de la dysfonction érectile chez ces patients sont des inhibiteurs de la phosphodiestérase-5 (PDE-5), en particulier médicament à action prolongée acheter cialis en ligne.

le cancer de la prostate est un problème grave de la médecine moderne. En 2007, il a servi en Russie à la quatrième place (8,9%) au niveau de la maladie et le premier (60%) – sur sa croissance parmi toutes les tumeurs malignes chez les hommes [1]. En même temps, grâce à l’introduction du taux de PSA de dépistage au cours de la dernière décennie a changé de manière significative la structure de la morbidité dans la direction plus tôt, les formes localisées. Cela a conduit au fait qu’un nombre croissant de patients sont maintenant effectué une prostatectomie radicale, y compris la chirurgie préservation des nerfs [2].

La dysfonction érectile après prostatectomie radicale est détermine en grande partie la qualité de vie des patients. Même dans le cas de l’exécution d’opérations de préservation nerveuse dysfonction érectile divers degrés de gravité est observée dans 65-75% des patients [3]. Ceci est particulièrement important pour les patients plus jeunes qui sont plus intéressés à maintenir une érection, qui sont de plus en plus de se porter candidat pour prostatectomie en raison de la détection précoce de la maladie.

Médicaments de première ligne pour la restauration de la fonction érectile après prostatectomie préservant les filets nerveux sont des inhibiteurs de la PDE5, car ils sont assez le plus commode, sûr et efficace chez les patients de ce groupe [2]. Dans une vaste étude récente randomisée multicentrique dans l’exemple vardénafil été montré que les inhibiteurs de la PDE-5 ont été aussi efficaces quel que soit le moment du traitement (immédiatement ou dans un an après la chirurgie) [4].

L’un des médicaments dans ce groupe – Cialis – est apparu en 2003 dans un grand essai randomisé multicentrique, à la réception de la demande après prostatectomie préservant les filets nerveux bilatéral Cialis a amélioré la fonction érectile chez 71% des patients, contre 24% dans le groupe placebo, le pourcentage de rapport sexuel était de 52% à la prise de Cialis et 26%, à savoir, deux fois moins de placebo [5].

Tadalafil, l’ingrédient actif Cialis, la structure chimique différente des deux autres médicaments actuellement utilisés de ce groupe (sildénafil et vardénafil). La vitesse et l’ampleur de l’absorption du tadalafil dans le tractus gastro-intestinal ne dépend pas de la prise de nourriture et de l’alcool. Son temps de demi-vie était de 17,5 heures, alors que le sildénafil et le vardénafil, il est égal à 4-5 h. La réalisation à la fois uniques et multiples érections après la prise de Cialis possible dans les 36 heures [6]. Cela vous permet de prendre le médicament non seulement immédiatement avant les rapports sexuels, mais aussi devant lui.

Durée des concentrations d’action et de la persistance tadalafil dans le sang sont également l’occasion de prendre Cialis sur une base quotidienne, non seulement sur demande. Merci à ces caractéristiques Cialis est un médicament de choix dans des situations où il est difficile de prédire l’heure exacte des rapports sexuels, ainsi que la fréquence des rapports deux fois par semaine ou plus. Dans certains cas, ces caractéristiques contribuent patients tadalafil une plus grande certitude et moins leurs craintes au sujet du temps écoulé depuis le moment de l’ingestion. Ceci est également confirmé par les recherches existantes sur le choix d’un inhibiteur de la PDE5, dans la majorité des patients qui ont préféré est Cialis [7-11].

Le médicament est administré à une dose de 20 mg pas plus d’une fois par jour. Les effets secondaires lors de la prise de Cialis généralement modérément exprimé et les réceptions subséquentes sont réduits ou disparaissent. Parmi eux le diagnostic des maux de tête et dyspepsie. Encore plus rare sont les maux de dos, myalgie, des étourdissements, la congestion nasale. Dans les essais cliniques, le nombre de patients cesser de prendre Cialis en raison des effets secondaires était le même que le nombre a renoncé à un placebo [12]. Comme cela est le cas avec d’autres inhibiteurs de la PDE5, Cialis ne doit pas être pris en même temps que les nitrates, il ne devrait pas y être utilisé par les patients atteints de maladies cardiaques et cardio-vasculaires, qui est contre-exercice.

Par conséquent, Cialis est un moyen pratique et efficace pour le traitement de la dysfonction érectile, même dans un groupe complexe de patients que les patients ayant subi une prostatectomie nerveuse. Il a tous les avantages des inhibiteurs de la PDE-5, mais en raison des particularités de pharmacodynamie permet d’étendre le temps et le mode d’administration du médicament, donnant aux patients une plus grande liberté de choix et la confiance dans le résultat.
