Posted: Friday, 2 September, 2011 | Categories: niacin, erectile dysfunction

Niacin also known as vitamin B3 can do a lot of good for men who suffer with erectile dysfunction and who also suffer from high levels of cholesterol. The details are published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

80 men who participated in the study and who suffered with both mild to severe erectile dysfunction and high levels of cholesterol were reported to have noticed improvements with the maintaining of an erection while taking niacin. 80 men taking the placebo did not experience and improvement.

The men were taking a massive 1,500mg of niacin each day though and ingesting this sort of quantity, one needs to be monitored. Some specialists are saying that niacin once daily at any time of the day will suffice in order to improve the symptoms of erectile dysfunction as opposed to Viagra, Levitra and Cialis which all need to be taken in and around the hours that sexual activity is likely to occur. Much more research will need to be carried out before there is a breakthrough here.
