The benefits of Kegel exercises for men and women

Kegel exercises have become very popular, especially among women, but many women still don’t know what a Kegel is exactly.

Also, many people are unaware of the many benefits that Kegel exercises can have on overall wellness and health.

If there was some exercise that took only thirty seconds, did not require a doctor’s permission, did not require equipment, had physical and even sexual benefits — would you try it?

Okay, we think it’s time to learn about Kegel exercises.

What are Kegel exercises?

Kegel exercises are done to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles are the muscles you use to stop the flow of your urine when you are sitting on the toilet. These exercises not only can stop your urine, but they can also prevent the accidental passing of gas or poop, and can even help to improve your orgasms. If you keep these muscles fit, you will keep your bowel, uterus, and bladder from sagging down into the vagina.

Benefits of Kegel exercises for women

These exercises can help overall fitness. Prolonged sitting, injury, repetitive movements, and pregnancy wreak havoc on your body. In many women, prolonged sitting can lead to deconditioning in both strength and aerobic fitness.

The stretching of the abdominal muscles during pregnancy can weaken the core. Also, weight gain is common due to pregnancy or our busy lives. Regular exercise can alleviate some of the effects and help women get back into shape faster. But, adding Kegel exercises to your workout routine is essential. A toned pelvic floor reduces the risk of incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and painful sex.

When it comes to sex, these exercises improve blood circulation to the vagina and pelvic floor, so they can are helpful for lubrication and arousal. After childbirth, many women feel like their vagina isn’t as tight as it was before. But, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles with these exercises can make it a little bit firmer. Women can easily contract their muscles, and that can improve sensation. Even if it is just psychological, it can help them feel better about their pelvic floor, so that is a positive benefit as well. 

These muscles are the most important when it comes to orgasm, so these exercises can help improve the intensity of the orgasm. The pelvic floor muscles are responsible for the pleasurable contractions felt in your genitals when the orgasm happens. If you have healthy pelvic floor muscles, you will experience more intense orgasms that last longer. If you have difficulty achieving the big O, you may be experiencing weak pelvic floor muscles.

Your migraine can be triggered by these foods

A migraine is an episodic, chronic, primary headache. We also refer to migraines as vascular headaches since they happen when blood vessels in the head suddenly expand.

A migraine is a common problem, especially in recent years. This headache attacks you without warning and is extremely painful.

What causes migraines?

Several studies have confirmed what causes migraines. Many things, such as drinking alcohol, poor diet, sleep deficit, or even the weather, can cause headaches. They can have many triggers, from environmental, genetic, and hormonal, to neurological and emotional causes. The pain can be mild and dull, or stabbing and sharp, lasting for several minutes to several days.

The changes in the weather usually trigger migraines, especially if you live in an area with hot temperatures. Overconsumption of sugar in a short period can also provoke a migraine. 

Another factor that causes them is the change of the serotonin levels in the brain, as well as the change of the blood flow in the brain. Moreover, according to some research, insufficiency of folic acid, vitamins B12, B6, and D can also provoke migraines more frequently. The risk of them is increased by 300% if these vitamins are missing from your daily nutrition. That is why it is extremely important to balance vitamin intake.
