Just when it seems the benefits-of-vitamin-D literature has topped out, Italian researchers have found yet another area where the vitamin/hormone may help out: the bedroom.

In a study of 143 men, Alessandra Barassi, MD, of University of Milan in Italy, and her colleagues found that those with severe erectile dysfunction (ED) had significantly lower vitamin D levels than those with mild ED, and that deficiency was worse in those with arteriogenic ED than in non-arteriogenic ED.

I am a big promoter of the use of vitamin D, even elevated doses. I presently take 10,000IU daily and my doctor once had me on 50,000IU daily. I've never had an ED issue though.

Here's an article I posted on FRee Republic eight years ago: The Antibiotic Vitamin

Don’t know, but I found out testosterone patches sure as heck can...

It’s important for many reasons. IIRC, Vitamin D is involved in the adrenal-thyroid link. A deficiency can trigger hormonal imbalance problems for both men and women.

big pharma will try to disprove it by the usual two pronged approach...at best it wont help, at worst you can overdose and have side effects.
meanwhile the warning label for Viagra tells you (no kidding), if you go blind or deaf, get help immediately.

I am a BIG supporter of this one supplement. My doc did a blood screen to verify I had low Vitamin D by medical standards. I take a single 1,000 IU tablet most days. It makes my brain much sharper and I simply do not get sick anymore. I also find fatigue does not set in at 2:30 in the afternoon. My blood panels come back normal range as well.

There is an inherent problems with these kinds of studies—trying to have two sample groups alike except for the one factor examined.

In fact, men who have low vitamin D on average spend more time indoors and sedentary than those who have higher levels. Sickly people in general spend less time on average out of doors as well. I would consider the study inconclusive on that basis.
