Selenium is a mineral which can be found in the soil. As a result, it manages to work its way into anything that grows in the soil, as well as in water, or even anything that consumes something grown in the soil for that matter.
Interestingly, selenium can be found in male semen. In fact, the selenium has a direct impact on the way in which the semen acts, as well as the overall volume of the semen. Basically, a deficiency in selenium can lead to all sorts of issues.
How Does It Work?
As we mentioned previously, selenium is found in semen. When you have little to no selenium in your semen, it starts to thin out.
In fact, it makes the semen odorless and it will have barely any sperm cells in there. Essentially, a lack of selenium in your diet is going to make you close to impotent.
In addition to this, the selenium can have an impact on the health of your cells. This can help to deal with conditions such as erectile dysfunction. We will discuss that in the next section.
The Male Enhancement Benefits of Selenium
When your semen is thin, your penis will suffer from uncontrolled leakage. You may find that you wake up in the morning with a small amount of semen around the tip of your penis.
However, the real issue is when it comes to premature ejaculation. Thin semen forces itself out of your penis that much easier. Selenium helps to prevent this. As we mentioned before, you will also be far more fertile if you have selenium in your sperm.
Selenium is also a fantastic antioxidant. It can help to protect the cells in your penis. This will help to improve blood flow throughout the penis. The result? You will be enjoying stronger and longer lasting erections!
This means that supplementing for selenium, if you can, is going to do absolute wonders when it comes to dealing with erectile dysfunction issues!
The maximum amount of selenium you should be consuming in a day is 400mg. Anything more than that and you risk poisoning yourself.
You must remember that you will be getting a decent amount of selenium into your diet anyway. This means that you can’t just got and take 400mg worth of supplements. You are running the risk of an overdose.
Overdosing on selenium can lead to kidney and liver issues. It should also not be taken by those on certain medications. However, for the most part, it should be fine to consume.
Selenium is brilliant when it comes to dealing with premature ejaculation. However, we suggest that you try to avoid supplementing with it ‘on its own’. We know that you can get individual selenium supplements.
Your best bet is to use it in combination with other natural ingredients. This way you will be boosting your performance in bed in other ways too!
