10 Tips for Better Health….. Tip #6

Have Sex.  The most damaging myth about older adults is that aging means saying good-bye to sex.  On the contrary:  In a national survey of more than 3,000 men and women ages 57 to 85, more than half of those 75 to 85 said they have sex more than two or three times a month, and 23 percent claimed to have sex at least once a week.  The benefits?  Sex causes the brain to release endorphins, the feel-good chemicals that act as pain killers and reduce anxiety.  Sex also prompts the release of substances that bolster the immune system.  What’s more, sexual activity is associated with lower levels of depression in both men and women, according to a study in the Journal Society and Mental Health.
