This Can Fight Erectile Dysfunction

coffeeResearchers have found a link between higher caffeine consumption and lower erectile dysfunction.

That’s good news for coffee drinkers since a few cups a day would be enough to curb the risk.

A new study from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston found that men who drink more caffeine (the equivalent of two or three cups of coffee a day) are less likely to experience erectile dysfunction than other men who consume little or no caffeine, according to CBS News. Researchers can’t yet prove causality in this finding, but they suggest the reason caffeine is beneficial could be because caffeine helps relax muscles and arteries, allowing freer blood flow.

The finding does not seem to apply, however, to diabetics, who actually face higher risks of erectile dysfunction.

The study was published online recently in the journal PLOS One.

According to background information in the study, erectile dysfunction affects more than 18 percent of American men 20 and older.
