A health expert, Paul Akapanga, has underscored the connection between high alcohol and caffeine intake and the occurrence of erectile dysfunction.

According to Mr. Akapanga, men’s efforts to impress their partners by consuming alcohol and energy drinks with caffeine could be detrimental to their sexual health.

He elaborated that prolonged, excessive alcohol consumption can hinder the ability to achieve and maintain an erection. Alcohol’s effect on the central nervous system can slow down information transmission between the brain and the penis, leading to reduced sensitivity in the penis.

Moreover, the health expert pointed out that combining alcohol and caffeine compounds the problem since both substances act as aphrodisiacs. This combination sends conflicting signals to the brain’s messengers responsible for initiating blood flow to the penis.

Mr. Akapanga stressed that this situation can even cause blood vessels to rupture, potentially resulting in a penile stroke, which may necessitate surgical intervention.

He further cautioned that conditions like high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes can damage nerves and alter blood flow to the penis, contributing to erectile dysfunction.

To mitigate the risk of erectile dysfunction, Mr. Akapanga advised the public to moderate their consumption of such beverages and substances used to enhance sexual performance. He also highlighted that not all cases of erectile dysfunction can be resolved through surgery, urging the public to exercise caution.

Mr. Akapanga encouraged men to include foods like groundnuts, tiger nuts, and coconuts in their diets, as they may positively impact sperm count.

These insights were shared during Akapanga’s conversation with Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Daybreak Upper show, where the health segment aimed to educate the public about health-related matters.
