New study suggests role for vitamin D in erectile dysfunction

For the first time, research has shown a relationship between vitamin D deficiency and erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is characterized by a man’s inability to hold an erection for sexual intercourse. It is a common condition with data suggesting the prevalence may be as high as 52% among U.S. men. It has also been reported that the condition becomes more prevalent with increasing age.

ED can be caused by physical factors, such as clogged blood vessels, high blood pressure, and smoking. It can also be caused by psychological factors such as depression and chronic stress or anxiety.
