4 Top Foods to Eat for Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile Dysfunction foods

If you are looking for natural treatments to enhance your sensual function, then you may want to consider eating foods that have been shown to help with erectile dysfunction (ED).

Certain foods can boost testosterone levels and nitric oxide levels, resulting in better erectile function without exposing you to the dangers of chemical supplements.

Here are our top 4 foods you could eat for better sensual health based on various studies and clinical trials.


One of the best foods for erectile dysfunction is beetroot. Beetroot may as well be called nature’s Viagra as it works in a similar way as the popular ED drug. Viagra increases nitric oxide levels and thus dilates blood vessels, increasing blood flow to the penis. Beets are naturally high in nitrates, which get converted to nitrites by bacteria in your mouth when you eat them.

Your stomach converts them to nitric oxide, and this helps to dilate blood vessels and blood flow in turn. Beetroot has the highest level of nitrates among vegetables. Other vegetables that are high in nitrates include carrots, radishes, celery, lettuce, and turnip tops, but beetroot gives you the most of it.

One final thing, at the last Summer Olympics it was reported that 90% of the athletes were taking beetroot supplements as a legal and natural way to increase athletic performance. So whether it is “on the track” or “in the sack”; add beets to your daily nutritional program!

Another one of our favorite foods for erectile dysfunction is watermelon, which is high in L-citrulline and lycopene. When eaten, L-citrulline is converted to the amino acid arginine, which also helps boost testosterone and is a natural way to increase sensual health in men. L-arginine improves the effect nitric oxide has in helping with erections.

Arginine is also found in other foods for erectile dysfunction like oatmeal. The lycopene in watermelon naturally helps blood vessels relax which improves blood flow, and good blood flow helps the penis with a healthy erection. Tomatoes, especially processed tomatoes, are also high in lycopene as well.

Arginine-rich oatmeal, also known as wild oats, can help enhance erectile function. Avena sativa has been shown in studies to help free the bound testosterone in the blood, making testosterone more active. This mild sensual enhancer works well with other stronger herbs such as tribulis terristris. Be aware that if you are experiencing symptoms of erectile dysfunction, you should talk to your doctor because one of the early signs of heart trouble may be erectile dysfunction.

Other causes of ED include smoking, excessive drinking, diabetes, obesity, anxiety, stress, and depression. Side effects of certain medications can also cause ED. If you have ruled out heart problems and other health issues, your ED may be due to declining testosterone levels. If that is the case, then eating foods for erectile dysfunction may help increase your libido and sensual drive naturally.

Pistachios for erection


A recent study found that men with erectile dysfunction who ate pistachio nuts every day for three weeks experienced significant improvement in sensual issues, including ED and sensual desire. The benefits of pistachios for erection problems may be due to a protein called arginine, which helps relax blood vessels. This is another example of how good circulation is good for sensual health.

So include these foods in your diet and feel the difference for yourself!!
