New studies found that coffee does more for a man`s body than just wake him up in the morning. Long term effects of regular use of coffee can help a man maintain good erectile function as they grow older.
The study comes from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, they conducted a study meant to determine how coffee influenced the sex life of over 4,000 men.
What they found was that, the men who consumed two cups of coffee a day had a 42% less chance of reporting erectile dysfunction as opposed to those who didn`t drink any coffee.
However, the percentage of men who had no problems with erectile dysfunction fell to the average of 39% for men who consumed three or more cups of coffee a day.
The study also took into account the men`s weight and blood pressure level and found that the positive effect that coffee has on a man`s sexual prowess is not affected by obesity or high blood pressure.
This study means good news for men in the age group of 40-70, an age group in which 50% of men report erectile problems. The study also revealed, that even drinking one cup of coffee a day has a positive effect on a man`s sex life.
Coffee is believed to have a relaxing effect on arteries and muscles from the genital area and this permits better blood flow which results in healthy erections.
Unfortunately, the study proved that coffee does not help men with diabetes to maintain better erectile function. Diabetes is the leading cause of impotency and nearly half of the reported erectile dysfunctions are blamed on this metabolic disease.
Diabetes causes premature aging of blood vessels and muscles and this counteracts the positive effect that caffeine has.
Another study conducted on older women, showed that females that drank one or more cups of coffee a day had a higher libido and older men who consumed coffee routinely, were found to have a higher potency level than the one registered by persons who did not drink coffee.
Studies regarding the beneficial or damaging effect that coffee might have on the cardiovascular system are still inconclusive, but in March a new study performed on 25,000 people showed that regular consumption of 3-5 cups of coffee a day, reduces the risk of stroke or heart attack.
The study showed that people who drank more coffee had a lesser level of Calcium in their arterial walls and Calcium within blood vessel walls is one of the key ingredient of atherosclerosis.
