Daily use of aspirin or other NSAID's has identified with a significant increased risk of erectile dysfunction according to recent research. A recent study in Finland as well as a larger study conducted by Kaiser Permenente Los Angeles Medical Center contradicted commonly held beliefs about the cause of erectile dysfunction.
It was once believed that erectile dysfunction was caused by inflammation, and that anti-inflammatorydrugs would have a beneficial effect. Kaiser researchers studied more than 80,000 men and found that daily use of aspirin or other NSAID's was associated with a 22% increase in erectile dysfunction. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs were used regularly by 47% of the men in the study, and of those men, nearly 30% reported moderate to severe erectile dysfunction.
Researchers of the Kaiser study stated regular users of NSAID drugs were 2.4 times more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction than men who used them infrequently or did not use these drugs at all.
Generally erectile dysfunction is associated with cardiovascular problems, increased inflammation, and decreased circulation.
A recent study in the International Journal of Impotence Research found that intake of fruits and nuts were associated with a reduction in erectile dysfunction risk. The ratio of monounsaturated fat in comparison with saturated fat consumption was also associated with reduced risk. The adoption of ahealthy diet could potentially prevent the development of erectile dysfunction. In the face of side effects from medication and health problems that increase the risk of reproductive dysfunction in men, dietary and lifestyle changes provide an avenue of protection for those willing to take responsibility for their own health.
