Physical Activity Prevents ED

Physical Activity Prevents ED
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is linked to poor metabolic health, particularly in the cells lining the blood vessels (endothelial cells). Anti-ED drugs such as Viagra stimulate the release of nitric oxide by the endothelial cells, which makes it easier to get an erection. Regular exercise also stimulates nitric oxide release and promotes the health and function of the endothelial cells. Erectile dysfunction is an excellent early warning sign of coronary artery disease and heart attack. A Finnish study found that people with the Metabolic Syndrome— a group of risk factors linked to heart disease— were more than 100 percent likely to have erection problems than people who exercise regularly. The incidence of heart disease was greatest in men suffering from the Metabolic Syndrome and erectile dysfunction. Exercise protects against ED and cardiovascular disease.
