Furthermore, researchers recently found out that the high glutamic acid, the primary amino acid plant protein, content in plant products, such as grains in particular, led to a drop in blood pressure.  A later study found that those who ate a significant amount of whole grains, over about 46 grams/day, were 19% less likely to develop hypertension.  And, as Peak Testosterone readers well know, a drop in blood pressure almost always means expanding arteries and expanding arteries is what allows blood flow into the penile chambers. Remember also that hypertension is bad for the penis and erections and is a major cause of erectile dysfunction. This may explain some of the powers of the Ornish, DASH and Mediterranean Diets to lower blood pressure.
Another criticism of grains is that they are nutritional weaklings. In other words, low carb folks basically often claim that eating fruits and vegetables are much higher in value than grains and so why not stick to them instead? Again, science has found the opposite. One 2009 study by the American Chemical Society found that grains had as many antioxidants as fruits and vegetables.  Again, this may be yet another explanation for why the Mediterranean and Low Fat Diets have done so well in the studies.
Many of the grains also directly boost Nitric Oxide, a fact that I cover in more detail in my Peak Erectile Strength Diet program. Boosting Nitric Oxide, of course, is what Viagra and Cialis are all about and will help your penis achieve its maximum hardness factor.
The truth is that grains prime your system with vitamins, mineral and phytochemicals and do it without destroying your metabolic health. There simply are few better all around foods for your general and sexual health. Grains are penis protective - it's that simple.
ln fact, the poster children for grains are the Ikarians, residents of a Greek Island where one in three residents live to be 90! (This is in market contrast with America, with its expensive health care system, where about 1 in 9 do.) One of their secrets is a Mediterranean Diet, with lots of grains, fruits, vegetables and olive oil. Oh, and AARP reports that most Ikarians over 90 are probably sexually active, which means that grains can't be too bad for the ol' penis, eh?
