Sex life is undoubtedly an indicator of physical and mental health, and experts say the benefits of frequent intercourse are more than we think.

It is precisely for this reason that abstinence from sex can have an impact on people’s health and bring about both physical and psychological changes.

Below you can see three of them …

Bad memory

Studies that have been published in scientific publications from time to time have shown that sexual intercourse promotes the process of creating new neurons in the brain, enhancing mental performance and memory.

More stress

Research published in the journal Biological Psychology has suggested that sex is associated with better physical and mental health. It has also been observed that sex acts as a “stress management” mechanism, since it is associated with a smaller increase in blood pressure levels under stress conditions. So when there is abstinence from sex, the stress increases to some extent.

Weaker immune system

Sex protects against colds and other infections, according to a 2004 study published in the journal Psychological Reports. According to the researchers’ findings, sex is associated with elevated levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA) in the body, an antigen that is the “first line of defense” against colds and flu.
