Working out, from yoga to fast walking, can help men have better sex.
If you’re huffing after walking up a flight of stairs, or straining to pick up something on the floor, then you shouldn’t expect yourself to have a lot of energy in bed.
Dr. Cedric Bryant, chief exercise physiologist at the American Council on Exercise (ACE), said a man’s sexual function is greatly affected by his general health condition. Citing studies, he said that the more you improve your health with physical activity, the better your sex life can be.

There are several studies, including one published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, showing that men with sexual dysfunction who were undergoing hemodialysis and receiving zinc had an improvement in potency, libido and frequency of intercourse not found in the placebo group.

In addition to zinc, they’re loaded with manganese, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamin K and protein. One ounce has 158 calories, 8.57 grams of protein, 1.7 grams of fiber and almost 25 percent of the recommend daily value for iron.
