People are constantly looking for ways to increase libido for a better sex drive and a more active sex life. But a high desire for having sex is not just about the way you perform in bed, but has effects on your overall health as well.

Erections in the morning also known as morning wood have been known to be indicators of good sexual health and now study reveals that it’s also linked to how your heart is functioning.
The absence of morning erections can be an early indication of heart ailments as the arteries to the penis are narrower than others and hence clogging can cause difficulty for erections.

Erectile dysfunction is related to heart health and while the blue pill is a way to solve the problem, experts are suggesting that instead of taking that way out, people should focus more on exercise and regulating diet for cutting down on fat.

So while you might not have been taking a morning erection too seriously, turns out that no morning erections is something that should have you worried.
