    Need a good hardon???

    Can Berries, Citrus Fruits Boost Male Sexual Health?

    Eating a flavonoid-rich diet may be as good for erectile function as briskly walking for two to five hours a week, researchers from Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the University of East Anglia in England reported.

    I thought the myth was raw oysters? To increase male sex drive as well as performance. I don't think I see them on this list. It seems to be all plant foods, no meats or seafood at all.

    Well, I happen to like raw oysters, anyway. But I can't say I ever noticed any sexual difference after I ate them. Nor with any of these foods listed here, that I also eat. The only thing I do before sex is to not eat some foods that make semen taste bitter, like asparagus.

    I heard of these, either because they are helping with your circulatory system or boost your testosterone levels. Unsure if its true or not.

    Watermelon - It is packed with Lycopene -that helps with your circulatory system.

    Oysters -boost testosterone

    Coffee (black, no sugar,cream etc.) - known to boost your circulatory system.

    Dark Chocolate (an ounce a week) - rich with flavanoids that helps blood system.

    Walnuts -packed with Arginine with helps your heart and circulatory system, but do not over do it in view of high fat.

    Peppers - known to help with your circulatory system and help with cholesterol levels.

    Bottom line anything that helps your blood vessels, circulatory system, etc. will boost any erection.

    Hmmm... I consume all of those, fairly regularly. Walnuts are my munchy snack throughout the day at home, always have a big glass bowl of them set out, had some just a few minutes ago. Raw oysters I mentioned above, also had a little dark chocolate today. Ate a bunch of fresh green peppers yesterday, as my husband was preparing them for his caponata dish (I'm allowed to take his extras, better than throwing them away, sorta my reward or payment for helping him a little. I also got some of the celery & carrots, I love raw veggies).

    So if this is true about testosterone, it might account for mine now rebounding back into the normal range, after being way below normal (and then deliberately chemically suppressed at one stage) during my cancer treatment.

    I've discovered before that I seem to have a natural affinity to eat healthy, almost instinctive. Whether or not my body subconsciously craves the proper things I need I don't know. But I'm not a health food nut, I don't consciously think in those terms, I mainly just eat where my appetite takes me. And it usually seems to take me in the correct direction. But thanks for this info, makes me feel better about some of the things I've been eating all along.

    By what method has the effectiveness been quantified?

    OK, seriously, the study in the article doesn't seem especially compelling. As pointed out, a direct cause & effect with these foods may not have been established. Men who eat them may likewise be doing other healthy things, in diet or lifestyle, that are also a factor in improved erectile function. And even then the numbers don't seem very impressive. It's not clear if they used very good controls in this "study", either.

    But it does remind us of another fact, that ED, especially in seniors, can be an indicator of more serious circulatory issues that need attention. You can try eating all the fruit and other food listed here, they're likely good for you for other reasons, but still also be getting yourself evaluated for your heart and circulatory system. ED could be a red flag you shouldn't ignore.

    Flavonoids are not the only foods that have this effect. Oysters are high in zinc, which also acts in the same way, so I doubt it's a myth.

    ED can also be psychological. If sex is boring and one isn't attracted to one's partner, ED is just about certain to result.
