A study published in the January 2016 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests a diet rich in flavonoid-rich foods can reduce the risk of ED. The study reviewed data from more 25,000 men who were middle-aged and older, and who participated in routine health survey since 1986. Researchers compared responses about having and maintaining an erection sufficient for intercourse with the number of flavonoid-rich foods each man reported consuming. Men who ate more fruit had a 14 percent reduced risk of ED. Men who consumed a high volume of flavonoid-rich fruits and exercised regularly experienced a 21 percent reduction of risk. Foods such as blueberries, cherries, blackberries, radishes, citrus fruits, and red wine offered the flavonoid profile with the greatest benefits. L-arginine is an amino acid that naturally occurs in the body and helps synthesize proteins. It is also the precursor to the compound nitric oxide (NO). NO is vital for achieving and maintaining an erection, as it helps the blood vessels relax to support blood flow throughout the body, including into the penis. Supplementing arginine in conjunction with a balanced lifestyle can offer men added support for a healthy erection. Added pounds can have a significant impact on blood flow, as well as put men at risk for diseases that may exacerbate ED. A study published in the January 2005 issue of the journal Canadian Family Physician found 30 percent of men who participated in a weight loss program and lost an average of 15 percent of their total body weight saw sexual function restored compared to only 5 percent of the control group.
