Apple Cider Vinegar and Erections?
« on: November 17, 2012, 07:41:24 pm »
I just read that a  45 year old man  would wake up with an erection  like a 16 year old after taking apple cider vinegar for several weeks. Didn't  say what the dosage was. Does this sound credible ?

Well, theoretically, yes.  In fact, I have already given coverage to vinegar here on just this subject:

http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Vinegar.aspx

But I suspect it was a shill as vinegar is something that will only give a small (but potentially significant long term benefit) imo.  I don't think it's going to turn you into a 16 year old! 

My guess is that guys who have prediabetes, which can impair your endothelial function, could be helped somewhat by regular consumption of vinegar.  Cinnamon and ALA are other goodies for men in this category.

Now, if you do have prediabetes or Metabolic Syndrome, then your big guns are weight loss, adequate testosteorne levels, exercise and low glycemic foods. (And, of course, one must avoid high fat diets which will actually induce insulin resistance!)

You can read more here if you are int'd:

If you try it, be sure to rinse your mouth out and maybe brush your teeth afterwards as it is supposedly hard on enamel.  And, of course, let us know if you notice any stunning outcomes...

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.  There are potential risk with HRT:  http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks.aspx.

I certainly will let you know. I have been on the low fat diet for several  weeks, joined the gym, drinking Pomegranat juice and just started the vinegar. I don't hold out much hope though as i have never been more than a few pounds overweight an my ed started in my early twenties when i was very active. I can't remember what my  testosterone  was but i was told it was not low. I was tested about two years ago .  I would have thought if my problem was circulation i would have had heart problems by now  but cholesterol  bp  etc has always been fine.
Wish i could afford health insurance

The devil is always in the details as they say.  Very, very, very often docs will tell you that "your numbers are great" and they aren't.  Examples of this abound.  I'm not slamming docs, but you have to realize that most docs are not thinking about long term health effects.  They are primarily into disease and diagnosis, not preventative care.

Let's list just a few examples of that:

--Very often docs will say testosterone of 350 ng/dl is good in spite of the fact that the man has all the classic symptoms of low testosterone. 

--Many docs will still say prehypertension blood pressure levels are good in spite of the fact that several studies say just the opposite.

--Many docs will say lipid profiles are just fine, when, in fact, the patient can be at very risky levels.  This can be total cholesterol, triglycerides, etc.

So, when it comes to long term preventative care, I highly encourage you to read the studies for yourself.  How many docs that you have gone to are any more healthy than you are?  Most of them, based on what I have seen, look like they are in much worse shape than the general populace as they are essentially overworked businessman. 

If you have a varicocele or a corneal abrasion or a staph infection or any medical condition, these are the guys for you.  If you want to maintain your health for decades, then that is highly questionable.  Docs are good at keeping you standing, keeping you alive until tomorrow.  In general, they give poor advice, based on what I've seen, to maintain your health and vitality for decades.

So I think you should dig up those testosterone numbers and post them:  it's simply not natural for a male to not be thinking about sex ALL the time.  You should be struggling NOT to have sex, not the other way around.  And I think it is negligent that your doc did not pursue that.  In my opinion, it is very likely that you have low testosterone, high prolactin or high estradiol. 

Look at the study on the following link.  I'll bet it describes you perfectly:

Again, post your numbers if you don't mind.
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.  There are potential risk with HRT:  http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks.aspx.

In the U.S. they have to provide you and/or your current provider with your medical records by law.
