NSAIDS LIKE ASPIRIN, IBUPROFEN and NAPROXEN LINKED TO 17% OF ALL ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION

Researchers in Finland found that men who use NSAIDS such as aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen had twice as much erectile dysfunction as men who did not use NSAIDs. The authors estimate that NSAIDs could be linked to nearly 17% of all erectile dysfunction. (See article “Men: Are Your Medications Making You Impotent?”)

ACTION — Avoid NSAIDs and use natural anti-inflammatory and pain supplements such as boswellia, ginger, turmeric, vitamin D3, hops extract. Change your diet to include more anti-inflammatory foods such as salmon, olive oil and fresh fruits and vegetables. Reduce your risk of erectile dysfunction by supporting healthy vascular health with resveratrol, red wine extract, grape seed extract and other antioxidants. Caution: If you have been prescribed aspirin for heart disease, discuss with your doctor before stopping aspirin.
