Vitamin D and Erectile Dysfunction – Keeping it “Brief”

Research is mounting showing a relationship between vitamin D deficiency and erectile dysfunction (ED). In addition, those with ED are at greater risk of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, and metabolic syndrome. All of these diseases are linked to vitamin D deficiency.

Vascular problems account for about half the cases of ED. There is a large body of research finding that vitamin D can maintain vascular health. The mechanisms appear to include suppressing the activity of the renin-angiotensin system, thereby lowering blood pressure, improving endothelial function, reducing inflammation, and reducing vascular calcification.

Decreased levels of vitamin D is associated with:

  • Asthma
  • Depression, falls and fractures,
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Periodontal disease
  • Low Birthweight
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Alzheimers
  • Fractures
  • Thyroid Dysfunction
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Poor taste in music (ok….made you look! We just made that up 😎)

Low Vitamin D & Erectile Dysfunction & Cardiovascular Disease & You!

It is this simple….If one is struggling, so is the other! “Tic-Toc-Tic-Toc”

According to the latest research, Erectile Dysfunction may be considered an early indicator of symptomatic cardiovascular disease. And if low levels of Vitamin D are associated with Erectile Dysfunction….that’s right.

Vitamin D is needed for health cardiac function!

And don’t forget the simplest and most natural way to boost your levels:

Go outside and “Catch Some Rays”  Sun light is the primary source of vitamin D for most people. The cliff note version is simple: Low Vitamin D levels may be contributing to erectile dysfunction and cardia dysfunction. You balance your check book, keep air in your tires and can find the best parking spots at Costco. Checking Vitamin D levels is cake! Gluten free cake of course!
