His study ought to make a lot of people happy. That is those that that suffers from boring sex life due to erectile dysfunction. ED is the scourge of many men, and they’d to go to a lot of lengths just to overcome this deficiency. Well, Mr. David Lopez, you’ve hit the proverbial nail right in the head. You have done a lot of us a great service, and we thank you for that.
“Even though we saw a reduction in the prevalence of ED with men who were obese, overweight and hypertensive, that was not true of men with diabetes. Diabetes is one of the strongest risk factors for ED, so this was not surprising,” he said.
Details of the study can be found in PLOS ONE journal.
Mr. Lopez works as an assistant professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston (UTHealth). His research revealed that, caffeine consumed in certain amount could keep things snappy and zingy. The amount he’s talking about is between 85 to 170 milligrams a day to get the ED lowered by about 42%.
What the caffeine does according to Mr. Lopez is, through its pharmacological properties, is to influence the physiological function of penile helicine artery and the cavernous smooth muscle. By relaxing both of them. The artery after loosening up will now be able to supply the much needed blood to the inter-cavernous sinuses. Blood pressure helps a lot in making body parts alive and kicking.
“More research is needed, but what scientists think is happening here is that coffee and caffeine are causing cavernous smooth muscle tissue (found in the penis) to relax, allowing more blood flow to the area and leading to improved erectile function,” said Dr. David Samadi, chair of urology at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
Caffeine can be sourced from coffee, tea, sodas and soft drinks.
