The Link Between Vitamin D Deficiency and ED

By Chass Armstrong

In previous blogs we have written about the psychological and physical causes of erectile dysfunction. However, there is another aspect of health that may cause erectile dysfunction as well. If you are experiencing ED, it may be because your body is deficient in one or more vitamins or minerals.

Today, we will be talking about how Vitamin D Deficiency and how it can lead to Endothelial dysfunction, which can create problems when it comes to getting and maintaining an erection.

There was an article in Men’s Health from September of 2014 which detailed a study highlighting this. According to a study done by the University of Milan, Italy, of 143 male subjects with erectile dysfunction, over half of them had Vitamin D deficiency. Those who were experiencing severe cases of ED had Vitamin D deficiencies 24% lower than those with non severe ED problems.

The question becomes why Vitamin D? If you have low Vitamin D, it can lead to endothelial dysfunction. This essentially means that your blood vessels are not working properly. Since your penis is filled with vascular tissue, you need your blood cells to work accordingly too fill correctly which causes an erection.

That being said, if you are having trouble getting and maintaining an erection, there are a few things that may help. For starters try taking vitamin d supplementation and try to spend some time in the sun. Sunlight helps convert Vitamin D for use by the body.

Along with this, you can also try a natural remedy such as a penis pump. Aeroflow offers the highest quality penis pumps for you to use. Unlike a pill, they are natural, safe, and there’s not risk of getting an erection that lasts longer than four hours.
