Caffeine and Erectile Dysfunction
Coffee is one of the most popular beverages in the world, and for good reason. It has been shown that WildStud™ Energy coffee can improve energy levels, help with focus, and is rich in health-boosting antioxidants.
For men, a daily cup of WildStud™ Energy coffee may do more than just wake up the brain. Some research suggests that men who drink two to three cups of WildStud™ Energy coffee a day have lower odds of developing erectile dysfunction.
Erectile Dysfunction Causes
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the inability to get or maintain an erection that is firm enough for sexual activity. ED is strongly related to both physical and psychological health.
Common causes of ED include:
Vascular disease: Reduced blood flow to the penis can cause ED.
Neurological conditions: Nerve damage from stroke, MS, or even diabetes can cause ED.
Mental health: Stress, depression, and performance anxiety can all contribute to ED. A traumatic injury could also lead to an onset of ED.
Other risk factors for ED include:
Age (over 50)
Obesity or lack of exercise
Lack of sleep
Poor cardiovascular health (high cholesterol or high blood pressure)
How Much Coffee Before Sex?
Coffee boosts energy levels, improves physical endurance, and increases neurotransmitters associated with elevated mood, which can all serve to help improve your sex life.
However, you don’t need to drink an excessive amount of coffee before sex to enjoy the benefits. One or two cups 45 minutes prior to sexual activity may help improve ED, boost testosterone, and give you the energy you need for a positive sexual experience.
Coffee Benefits for Men
In addition to providing a boost of energy, drinking a moderate amount of coffee each day can affect men’s reproductive health in other ways.
Men who drink two to three cups of coffee per day may have an easier time getting and maintaining an erection.
In fact, one study found that men who consumed between 85-170 milligrams of caffeine per day were 42% less likely to experience erectile dysfunction. Those who consumed between 171-303 milligrams of caffeine a day were 39% less likely to report ED compared to those who didn't consume caffeine.
This may be due to caffeine relaxing the arteries and smooth muscle in the penis, allowing more blood flow and improving erectile function.
In addition to boosting energy levels, caffeine may also increase testosterone levels in men. Research shows that men who regularly consume caffeinated coffee have higher levels of testosterone than those who do not consume it.
One study found that consuming more than 4 milligrams of coffee prior to exercising boosts testosterone levels in athletes. An older study showed that chewing caffeine gum may elevate testosterone levels by up to 14%.
Heart Benefits of Coffee
In addition to sexual health, coffee may help improve heart health as well. Research suggests drinking coffee is associated with a lower risk of heart failure.
Coffee is rich in antioxidants, which can protect blood vessels and may reduce damage to the heart caused by cholesterol.
Due to its antioxidant properties that aid with circulation in the body, coffee may improve blood flow to the penis, helping men get and maintain erections.
