Researchers analyzed data of more than 50,000 men on their ability to get and maintain an erection. Also, dietary data was collected every four years from 1986.

They found that men who consumed foods high in flavonoids – particularly anthocyanins, flavones, and flavanones – had a lower risk of ED.
Anthocyanins are present in blueberries, cherries, strawberries, blackberries, and black currants, while flavones and flavanones are found in citrus.
Results suggest that eating more of these fruits is as beneficial as walking briskly for up to five hours a week.
It’s estimated that around 30 million men in the U.S. have ED. Men over the age of 60 are at greatest risk.
