One aspect of maintaining good male organ health is taking care of the delicate skin that covers the manhood. When that skin is healthy, the member has an appealing, attractive look that potential partners greatly appreciate. But when, say, there is dry male organ skin, it can be a major turn-off to a bed mate, who wants a member to look its best before getting more intimately acquainted with it. Dry male organ skin can come about for many reasons. For example, sometimes a vitamin A deficiency may be the cause or a contributing factor to dry male organ skin.
Yes, vitamin A
Everyone knows that vitamins are important for their health, but not everyone knows a great deal about most individual vitamins (other than that, say, vitamin C may be good for fighting colds, for example). And vitamin A may be one of the vitamins about which the average person knows very little. So let’s take a look at this important vitamin.
Vitamin A comes in 2 forms, preformed and provitamin. The former is found mostly in animal-derived food, like liver, dairy products, and fish. As might be surmised, therefore, the latter is primarily derived from plant-based sources (fruits and vegetables). Whichever kind a person gets, when it enters the body it makes its way to the liver, where it is stored until the body is ready to use it.
And what does the body use vitamin A for? Actually, quite a few things, including helping cells to grow, strengthening the immune system, aiding fetal development, improving vision health – and maintaining the health of the skin as well.
Dry male organ skin
Although vitamin A does not target dry male organ skin specifically, its use in overall skin health makes it ideal for keeping the male organ skin looking good and maintaining a fine degree of health. Both the dermis and the epidermis (two of the layers of skin) seek out vitamin A and drag it in. When the skin is not able to find enough vitamin A, it can cause a protein called keratin to run a little wild. With too much keratin, the skin dries and thickens, causing not only dry male organ skin but also rough skin and sometimes the appearance of male organ bumps. In some cases, it may take on a scaly appearance similar to that associated with eczema, none of which makes for a good-looking manhood.
Source of vitamin A
So if lack of vitamin A is leading to a dry male organ skin condition, it behooves a man to increase his vitamin A intake. One way to do this is by eating more foods that are rich in vitamin A. These include:
- Dairy products, such as milk, cream, eggs, and cheese
- Fish products, such as cod, tuna, halibut, and fish oil
- Organ meats, such as liver and kidneys
- Green leafy vegetables, such as kale, spinach, and collard greens
- Foods with beta-carotene, such as carrots, apricots, sweet potatoes, squashes, pumpkins, mangoes, and peaches
Men can also help to add vitamin A to their bodies by taking vitamin supplements. Of course, whenever contemplating changing a diet or adding supplements, it pays to consult with a doctor in advance.
Preventing dry male organ skin by maintaining healthy levels of vitamin A may be easier if a man daily applies a top-drawer male organ health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). In order to be effective, the oil must, of course, contain vitamin A. As a bonus, vitamin A has the added benefit of helping to fight unwanted and persistent manhood odor. Be sure that the chosen oil also contains adequate and appropriate moisturizing agents, such as shea butter and vitamin E.
