New research gives younger men another good reason to eat flavonoid-rich fruits and vegetables.
The study, published online in January in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, found that increased consumption of flavonoids, particularly flavones, reduced the risk of erectile dysfunction (ED) in a group of 350 men who ranged in age from 18 to 40 years old.
Consuming dairy products and alcohol seemed to raise ED risk.
More details on the study, including the degrees of risk reduction, can be found here.
