7. Morning Erection - keep it "up" in the morning shows the young energy. The "harder you keep", the healthier your arteries are. There is a research indicated that having sex for over 3 times a week can reduce ED (Erection disorder) by four times, while having sex for less than one time a week can increase ED probability twice.

8. Fat body makes you 10 years older. In 2007, there's an important research discovered that for every 5% increase of BMI (Body Mass Index, around 13.5 kg) of men, the level of testosterone decline to a "10 years older" level.

9. Train your brain for 15 years younger. Take some IQ test or solve some puzzles can keep a 45yo man to have a 30yo active brain.

18 tips to keep men young (Part 1)

I posted some food suggestions to keep women young about a week ago. This time is men's turn. Not necessary foods though. These are tips suggested from the Internet and Men's Health Magazine.

1. Shave often. It just look younger. And there's a skin specialist telling people that shaving stimulate the collagen production on the face and make it look shinier and smooth.

2. Eat less. Eating a little less can reduce the probability of inflammation. We normally can afford eating 30% of our daily value. (honestly, I don't agree on this myself...but research is a research)

3. Sleep more and better. Lacking of sleep consistently can get old faster because the muscle around the eyes gets trained through the activity of eyeball during sleep. Lacking of this activity would cause those muscle shrink and leave a dark shade.

4. Exercise more. I guess everyone pretty much knows about this. 3 hours workout per week and make us look 10 years younger.

5. Oral hygiene. There is a research with 6693 adults in England indicates that people who have teeth problems or oral problems are obviously less smart than people with healthy teeth. Reason can be teeth problem causes more minor inflammation within the body and hence hurt the brain.

6. Slow heart beats. To keep you young, a strong heart is definitely needed with slow heartbeats and keep the blood slowly but efficiently flow. Human have about 300 millions of heartbeats in average of the whole life. Slow down the heartbeats should mean that we can live longer. Of course, to keep your heartbeats strong but slow, exercises are always needed.
