Professor of the Department of Biochemistry in University of Ilorin, has urged Nigerians to be engaging in early morning s*xual intercourse as he reveals the rewarding health benefits.
Prof. Musa Yakubu of University of Ilorin has said that having s*x in the early morning lowers blood pressure and reduces risks of heart attack.
He said that having s*xual intercourse, three to four times a week, was good for love life. “Research has shown that s ex boosts immune system by stimulating the body’s first line of defence and production of immunoglobulin A (IgA), against cold and fever,” he said.
Immunoglobulin A is one of the most common antibodies in the body system.
Antibodies are proteins made by the immune system to fight bacteria, viruses, and toxins. Prof. Yakubu said that s ex also regulates menstruation in women by influencing the levels of lutenising hormones that controls menstrual period and promote better sleep.
According to him, the act of s*xual intercourse also release the feel-good chemical, known as oxytocin, which enhances closeness with one’s partner and makes people feel happier for a longer period of time.
“Lovemaking of about 20 minutes reduces 150 calories,” he said. The professor of Biochemistry postulated that s*x is the most powerful creative force given to human by God for pleasure and deep companionship.
He, however, noted that any marriage in which the man or woman could not enjoy s*xual intercourse or satisfy their partner in bed was a dead marriage. He also said that lack of s*xual satisfaction had led to the collapse of many marriages in Nigeria, and urged couples to seek for solutions to the problem.
“S*xual and reproductive dysfunctions are common among men and women in Nigeria, which necessitates regular screening and check-ups,” he said.
He also said that traditional medicines had been authenticated to cure s exual dysfunctions
