And you might have eaten one or more of them already today…

Here are the 5 foods to avoid if you want more muscle and less fat.


Men: watch out for this delayed side effect from this common treatment

I get letters from men ALL THE TIME telling me about how the treatments they are on cause problems “down there.”

Lots of treatments can cause problems with a man’s unit, but blood pressure treatments cause problems FREQUENTLY.

They are high on the list of treatments with nasty sexual side effects.

As bad as these intimate side effects are, they aren’t the ONLY problem with ACE inhibitors (the most common kind of blood pressure medicine).

Like most “maintenance treatments” that Big Pharma wants you to take every day for the rest of your life, ACE inhibitors have problems that often don’t show up until months and sometimes years later.

One of those problems is a dry, consistent cough.

What Are ACE Inhibitors?

ACE inhibitors are also known as angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. They dilate the blood vessels to reduce blood pressure.

Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors) are ‘treatments’ that slow (inhibit) the activity of the enzyme ACE, which decreases the production of angiotensin II. As a result, blood vessels enlarge or dilate, and blood pressure is reduced.

What Are Some of the Brands of ACE Inhibitors?
The class of treatments known as ACE inhibitors are sold under many names:

GenericBrand Name
LisinoprilPrinivil, Zestril

They are also given out extremely frequently.

ACE inhibitors were the fourth most utilized ‘treatment’ class in the United States with 162.8 million scripts.

If you aren’t on this type of blood pressure medicine yourself, you likely know someone who is.

Cough is a Frequent Side Effect of ACE Inhibitors

While lots of men know about the problems that blood pressure meds can cause “down there,” most guys don’t know that a persistent cough is ALSO a common side effect.

A dry, persistent cough is a well-described class effect of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor medications.

The high end of estimates for a coughing side effect for ACE inhibitors is about 1 in 3 people!

The incidence of ACE inhibitor-induced cough has been reported to be in the range of 5 to 35% among patients treated with these agents.

That’s a LOT of people with a side effect that is at best annoying and at worst could be dangerous.

The Cough Can Take a LONG Time to Show Up

To make things worse, some people get this side effect very SOON after they start taking it or it can take MONTHS to develop this cough.

The onset of ACE inhibitor-induced cough ranges from within hours of the first dose to months after the initiation of therapy.

That means that the symptoms of the cough aren’t always easy to put together with the ACE inhibitors as a cause. In fact, it’s something that doctors often miss. This can be costly as they try to figure out what’s wrong, and it can lead to lots of unnecessary testing.

The Cough Can Also Take a While to Go Away

Even when you go off of ACE inhibitors, the cough doesn’t always go away immediately. It can stick around for up to 3 months!

Resolution typically occurs within 1 to 4 weeks after the cessation of therapy, but cough may linger for up to 3 months. The only uniformly effective treatment for ACE inhibitor-induced cough is the cessation of treatment with the offending agent.

But the ONLY way to get rid of an ACE inhibitor induced cough is to go off of the meds.

So if you have an ACE inhibitor induced cough you need to go off the meds and then wait and wait and wait some more.

The bottom line here is this — if you are on blood pressure meds AND have developed a cough the two may be related. It’s an important side effect to know about.

—-Important Message for Men with High Blood Pressure—-

This “vasodilation” method naturally lowers blood pressure (and makes a man look bigger down there)

The reason WHY men have blood pressure problems is because of blood flow.

When blood flow is blocked and the heart is having to pump harder and harder… THAT raises blood pressure…

So if you are getting good blood flow, your pressure will be normal.

And I’ve found a completely natural way for men to increase blood flow and lower pressure.

It’s called “vasodilation” and it can be done in 90 seconds or less.

And with this vasodilation method, you will be sending more oxygen-rich blood to the heart, organs, even the male member!
