Erectile Dysfunction Linked to Low Vitamin D

The Y Factor and their medical professionals once again focus on the underlying condition affecting male wellness and health instead of just treating symptoms.

A common approach to treating Erectile Dysfunction is the use of medications like Viagra®, Cialis® or Levitra®. The medical professionals at the The Y Factor have recognized that low vitamin D is associated with endothelial dysfunction and/or atherosclerosis both conditions causing poor blood flow in small arteries.

Men treated through the The Y Factor are able to improve blood flow to maximize erections and also to maintain good heart health.

“Men with vitamin D deficiency—defined as a 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] level below 20 ng/mL—have a significant 30% and 80% greater prevalence of ED and severe ED, respectively, compared with men who have optimal levels (30 ng/mL or higher), after adjusting for comorbidities, lifestyle variables, and medication use, investigators reported in Atherosclerosis (2016;252:61-67). In addition, each 10 ng/mL decrease in 25(OH)D was associated with a significant 12% increased prevalence of ED.”
