Can black currants help erectile dysfunction (ED)?


Q. do black currant have any thing to do with men ED?


A. A 10-year study suggests active men who consumed a diet rich in flavonoid or antioxidants are less likely to suffer erectile dysfunction (ED) by 10%.  Black currants are known for their high flavonoid levels (anthocyanins) and therefore are tagged with this research. More studies are needed to confirm the effect of black currant consumption on ED before this is a confirmed health claim.
