Too often, men will use prescription drugs to improve their erectile dysfunction before looking into the more natural solutions out there. For example, herbal male enhancement supplements may help improve your confidence in the bedroom, and recent research has suggested that simply getting more sunlight could improve sexual function.
According to scientists from the Sunlight Institute, about half of all ED cases are attributed to vascular problems, and vitamin D can help maintain healthy vascular function. Therefore, you may want to ask your doctor to test your vitamin D levels if you experience sexual problems,
"Among the lifestyle changes physicians might typically promote in the context of ED, such as 'stop smoking, take more exercise, eat more healthily and lose weight', 'get more sunshine exposure to bare skin' should perhaps also be in the mix," said Richard Quinton, M.D.
Of course, it's important to wear sunscreen when going outside to protect against the sun's harmful UV rays. Vitamin D can also be obtained trough foods like oily fish and fortified milk, and in supplement form.
