When people think about erectile dysfunction, they often think of a middle-aged man with gray hair that can’t get it up. But according to theJournal of Sexual Medicine, a study in 2013 showed that about one in four men newly diagnosed with ED were under 40 years old.
The good news is that medications that can help with ED are available. There is something more natural, though, that a man can do to reduce the risk of having ED. A couple of studies have shown that a daily stroll could help you avoid those embarrassing moments when the little soldier refuses to stand at attention.
According to research from a study that was published in Urologyway back in 2000, physically walking was proven to be more effective at lessening ED than quitting smoking, weight loss, and reducing alcohol consumption.
Another one, published in American Journal of Cardiology in 2015, says a two-mile stroll could help prevent erectile dysfunction. The study followed men who had a recent acute myocardial infarction. They reported less ED after participating in a walking home program for 30 days, as opposed to those who were treated medically.
After all the test results were in and research was completed, they saw a 71 percent decrease of ED in the controlled home-based walking group. If all it takes to defeat erectile dysfunction is walking, it’s time to get to stepping.
