Coffee may reduce erectile dysfunction risk

While coffee is the most popular morning beverage for boosting energy in the morning, studies now show that it may do more.

New research from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston shows that coffee may reduce erectile dysfunction risk.

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is becoming increasingly common. According to a study from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, ED affects more than 18 million men in the United States over age 20.

The study participants included 3,724 men 20 and older. They entered their ED status in a computer interview. Out of the participants, 40.9% were overweight, 30.7% were obese, 51% had high blood pressure and 12.4% were diabetic.

The research team estimated the caffeine intake of the participants by analyzing dietary data that the men were asked to report.

The team found that men who consumed between 85-170 mg of caffeine were 42 percent less likely to report ED, while those who consumed 170-303 mg were 39 percent less likely to report ED than those who consumed no caffeine at all.

According to the researchers, the amount of coffee needed to reach these caffeine levels daily is about 3 cups of coffee per day.

Higher caffeine intake was also linked to a reduced risk of ED in men who were overweight and obese, and those who had high blood pressure. All of these factors are considered risk factors for ED.

The study showing that coffee may reduce erectile dysfunction risk was published in the journal Plos One.
