UEA Research Reveals That Eating Blueberries Helps With Erectile Disfunction
A team from UEA and Harvard University have found that foods rich in flavonoids, such as blueberries, are directly linked with reduced erectile dysfunction. Flavonoids are a kind of healthy nutrient found in everyday food and drink that may now be known as sexual superfoods.
Professor Aedin Cassidy who works at UEA, lead the research.
She said in a statement, “This is the first study to look at the association between flavonoids and erectile dysfunction, which affects up to half of all middle-aged and older men.”
The study showed that eating just a few handfuls of blueberries a week or drinking a glass or two of wine reduced the risk of suffering from erectile dysfunction by about 10%. If eating foods rich in these flavonoids is also combined with exercise this could reduce the risk by up to 21%. The health benefits are not restricted to erectile dysfunction as these kinds of flavonoid rich foods also reduce the risk of other conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
And if you were thinking that this research doesn’t affect you, Cassidy revealed that: “benefits were strongest among young men.”
So starting eating those blueberries boys.
