Unequivocally that addiction to tobacco is harmful to the body. Although this has little effect on the number of those suffering from this habit. The reason is the slow action of the main components of tobacco. The spread of the poison may take decades. Even those men that know how Smoking affects the potency, it does not prevent starting to smoke. Some do not even know about the risk of problems with erections in the future.
Does Smoking on potency in men
Direct link potency and smoked cigarettes are seen. This applies both to the person who is just starting to become addicted to nicotine, and a heavy smoker. The reasons are two:
- cigarette you smoke has no direct effect on hormonal balance and sexual function;
- the time development of the negative effects of tobacco on the body takes several years, which does not allow to realize the effect of nicotine on the possibility of sexual intercourse.
People can notice what is the impact of Smoking on potency over the years. This means that the nicotine and tar tobacco smoke (along with all substances which it contains) after his first hit in the body begin to have a negative effect. Hence it can be concluded that Smoking and potency are not compatible.
The effect of nicotine on the body
Nicotine is a chemical compound of natural origin (an alkaloid). Contained in the leaves of solanaceous plants. This is primarily a tobacco and tobacco. Others (such as tomatoes, eggplants, potatoes, peppers) have a negligible concentration of nicotine. For the human body nicotine is a foreign substance. Not synthesized in it. Due to its structure of the alkaloid can stimulate certain nerve receptors. Which therefore was called nicotine.
Nicotinic receptors are located in many parts of the body. It is the brain, ganglia of the spinal cord and peripheral neurons (i.e., neurons that go from spinal cord to skeletal muscles). They all respond to acetylcholine and nicotine. The first one stands out from the synapse of the neuron and goes immediately into the space between neurons. Nicotine can get there only from the fluid surrounding cells. Therefore, the development of the poisonous effects of nicotine from cigarettes you need a large quantity.
That is the main danger of tobacco and how Smoking affects the potency and endocrine systems of men. The dose of nicotine received from a cigarette, small to development of toxic effect. Habit and the regular flow of substances in the body will slowly poison him. Nicotine can intervene in the normal course of metabolism. All this means that the person can contribute to the development of toxic lesions of the body.
Smoking and testosterone in men
Nicotine directly affect the level of testosterone cannot. The action takes place according to the following algorithm:
- nicotine through the lungs is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream;
- freely in the blood;
- nicotine damages the epithelium of small blood vessels;
- the epithelium of the inflamed
- interferes with the normal circulation, increases the pressure;
- changes in blood flow affect the cells.
Testosterone production is due to synthesis in the tissues of the testicles. Concentrations of the hormone directly related to the level of metabolism. The result of its reduction leads to weak tissues. Therefore, decreases the level of hormone synthesis. Everything happens very slowly. For example, in perfect conditions with a steady nicotine consumption can cause testicular dysfunction after 20-30 years, if not to take into account the age,adverse environmental factors. They themselves can reduce testosterone production.
The effect of Smoking on the reproductive system
The action of nicotine and toxicants in tobacco smoke in the whole reproductive function is due to several factors.
- Smoking leads to a decrease in testosterone production.
- Nicotine and toxins in tobacco disrupt the operation of the testicles and prostate.
- Addiction weakens the immune system, depleting the body's resources.
- Tobacco weakens the libido (desire).
- The nicotine toxicity effect on sperm, reducing the likelihood of fertilization.
Smoking and erectile dysfunction
The effect of Smoking on erection has the same mechanisms. The first is the decrease in the level of testosterone. This hormone is crucial for the emergence and maintenance of erection the emergence of desire. The established system of Smoking, causing chronic inflammation of the vascular walls, promotes atherosclerosis. If the disease affects the iliac artery decreases the functioning of male sexual organs (penis, testicles, prostate). Therefore, the clearly visible negative impact of Smoking on male potency.
How do cigarettes affect the potency
In addition to nicotine, tobacco smoke contains many other components. Among them, a resin and a complex compound of heavy metals. The first to violate the metabolism, which leads to a decrease of the synthesis of sperm . The second can cause neoplastic disease. And the dose of heavy metal compounds is not significant. The development effect is possible in the presence of only one atom.
Impotence occurs as a direct result of atherosclerosis of the vessels in the iliac arteries. These vessels give branches that supply all of the male genitals. Impotence is purely functional in nature and occurs when a small amount of testosterone. Or has a direct defeat the blood vessels of the penis. Then impotence is associated with disorders of erection.
Does electronic cigarette on the potency
Mechanisms of the influence of electronic and conventional cigarettes are similar . Both contains nicotine. Electronic cigarettes do not contain tar and heavy metals. They have a lot of light elements. However, their effect on the body is still not fully solved. Yet by far the only that electronic cigarettes in their influence on the potency is almost identical to normal.
Does the hookah on the potency
The answer is Yes. Although a special study was conducted, the tobacco used in hookah contains the same (sometimes more) dosage of nicotine. The difference from conventional cigarettes is the temperature of the inhaled smoke, as well as the concentration of the ingredients. Design hookah includes passing the combustion products through the filter and cooling in water. Important to the quality tobacco for Shisha.
How to recover potency after Smoking
