Vitamin D and Erectile Dysfunction - Keeping it "Brief"

Vitamin D & Erectile Dysfunction - How Bright is Your Light?


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. 

What Else Do We Know About Vitamin D

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

Vitamin D and Erectile Disfunction = Cardiovascular Disease

"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! 










What Can You Do?

  1. Don't Wait - Do What You "CAN" Do
  2. OnLine Lab Testing and Vitamin D
  3. Catch Some Rays - Sun light is the primary source of vitamin D for most people. Along with supporting the synthesis of Vitamin D, sunlight increases nitric oxide levels in the blood. Appropriate levels of Nitric Oxide helps minimize the risk of Erectile Dysfunction.
