Yes! Sexual hormones, blood sugar, and insulin balance are quite connected, probably much more than you ever imagined. Here’s how:
- Sugar affects your hormones: We are talking about testosterone and growth hormone here; they both take a big hit! In men and women, too much sugar can affect both libido and sexual functioning.
- Sugar can knock you out: A diet high in sugar can kill your energy level… which affects your stamina in bed.
- Sugar stresses out your body: And need we remind you that stress and sex are not very compatible. Sugar creates inflammation, which leads to bodily stress.
