Fruity Diet Reduces Risk Of Erectile Dysfunction

January 24, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
A diet that contains regular helpings of foods rich in certain flavonoids reduces the risk of erectile dysfunction (ED) in men under age 70, a study by U.S. and British scientists has found. The most potent flavonoids are found in various fruits. Anthocyanins are found in blueberries, cherries, blackberries, radishes and blackcurrants; flavanones and flavones are found in citrus fruits. The study also showed that that eating more fruit generally was associated with a 14 percent reduction in the risk of ED. A flavonoid-rich diet is as good for erectile function as vigorously walking for up to five hours a week, the researchers noted.
