If you’re trying to up your game in the bedroom or want to make sure you’re still hitting those high notes in the future, then listen up. A new study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that men who regularly ate foods high in flavonoids were less likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction as they aged.
The study, which examined the eating habits and erectile dysfunction of over 25,000 men every 4 years (in 2000, 2004, and 2008), found that the risk of dysfunction was 14% lower for men who ate the most flavonoids.
But what the hell are flavonoids, anyway? They’re a group of plant metabolites thought to provide health benefits through cell signaling pathways and antioxidant effects. In other words, they’re damn good for you and can be found in all sorts of foods like berries, nuts, beans, vegetables, spices and even red wine.
Apparently, the University of Texas Health Science Center also found that erectile dysfunction can be helped by consuming between 85 and 170mg of caffeine every day. It was found to lessen those who suffer erectile dysfunction by a whopping 42%.
Coffee, wine, and blueberries. Not a bad combo for a lifetime of good sex.
