London: Feel free to crack open a can of beer the next time you want to have sex as a recent study has revealed that a couple of pints can make you better in bed.
According to sex expert Kat Van Kirk, beer provides men with four different benefits beneath the sheets, the Independent reported.
Van Kirk noted that sloshing down a couple of brews can delay premature ejaculation as phytoestrogens in alcohol overload the body and are proven to delay orgasm.
Drinking darker beers can also act as an aphrodisiac, boosting the libido and giving longer, more intense erections. The iron in darker beer helps red blood cells create haemoglobin, which carries oxygen around the body. This improves circulation and gives a stronger erection says Van Kirk.
The third benefit of beer drinking is an increase in sexual stamina, according to research. The study found 31 per cent of moderate beer drinkers had reduced risk of cardiovascular disease compared to non-drinkers. This means beer drinkers are less likely to suffer from heart attacks, strokes or heart disease, according to the study, and when paired with exercise, beer helps keep your heart healthier, giving you more cardio endurance.
Finally, Van Kirk states probiotics and B vitamins in beer “can help fortify your overall health” and settle the stomach meaning men are less likely to “feel sluggish during sex” after a cold one.
Beer-lovers should be warned, however, that in order to reap the rewards of your pints in the bedroom, beer should only be drunk in moderation.
The study is published in the European Journal of Epidemiology. (ANI)
