PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It seems coffee doesn’t just increase your energy levels.
A new study finds the morning drink could actually perk up sex for men.
Researchers from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) found that men who consume caffeine on a daily basis had a lower risk of erectile dysfunction.
The study showed amounts of caffeine equal to those in two or three cups of coffee a day had the most beneficial effect, with men who drank that much 42 percent less likely to report issues with ED.
Researchers say caffeine might help thwart impotence because it relaxes certain arteries and muscles, improving blood flow.
