All over the world, men have always considered a long lasting erection during sex as a mark of better performance between the sheets and are always on the lookout for methods that help maintain a firm erection for long intervals of time. Several men erectile issues due to reasons that include age, stress and internet porn.

While pills and several new procedures are being explored to cure erectile dysfunction and experts are suggesting ways for men to have longer erections, the answer may lie in a single vitamin. Research has found that the levels of vitamin D in a man’s system determine risks of erectile issues.

 

Proper functioning of blood vessels depends on nitric oxide in the body, and this may face depletion from superoxide ions. These ions depend on the level of vitamin D, since high levels of the vitamin can prevent production of superoxide ions.

So maintaining vitamin D levels in the body can keep erectile dysfunction at bay and make men get a rock hard erection. In case of those with low vitamin D, supplements may prove to be helpful.
