Vitamin D Deficiency Common in Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Leave a comment

For men with erectile dysfunction (ED), vitamin D deficiency is common, especially among those with arteriogenic etiology, according to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Alessandra Barassi, M.D., from the University of Milan, and colleagues examined the status of serum vitamin D among patients with ED. The etiology of ED was classified as arteriogenic (A-ED; 50 patients), borderline (28 patients), and non-arteriogenic (NA-ED; 65 patients).

The researchers found that the mean vitamin D level was 21.3 ng/mL, and 45.9 percent of patients had vitamin D deficiency (<20 ng/mL). Vitamin D levels were significantly lower for patients with severe/complete ED versus mild-ED (P = 0.02).

There was a negative correlation between vitamin level and parathyroid hormone, and the correlation was stronger in those with vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D deficiency was significantly lower in A-ED versus NA-ED patients (P = 0.01). A-ED was more frequent in those with vitamin D deficiency versus those with vitamin D >20 ng/mL (45 versus 24 percent; P < 0.05).

“We suggest routine measurement of vitamin D in ED patients, with replacement therapy as required,” the authors write.

Interested in Glutathione?  Contact Boston Testosterone Partners to inquire about our outstanding Glutathione Injectable Protocols.

Glutathione is the single best anti-oxidant known.  Nothing else compares.

People with higher Glutathione levels:

  • Have less inflammation.
  • Have reduced joint discomfort.
  • Have strengthened immune systems.
  • Have more energy.
  • Have improved stamina and endurance.
  • Recover faster from exercise and illness.
  • Have greater mental clarity and focus.
  • Sleep better.
  • Live better, longer.

Read the following excerpt from Dr. Herbert Nagasawa, one of the worlds leading research scientists on cellular function.

Categorically and without any equivocation whatsoever, I can tell you that Glutathione is THE most important endogenous antioxidant there is. For one thing it is manufactured by your own body. Secondly… it is the only antioxidant that can recycle itself. No other antioxidant can do that.

One of the major functions of Glutathione is maintain what is known as cellular redox homeostasis. The simplification of this is that Glutathione helps maintain the oxidational level of cells and holds it in check.

A good example of this is the hemoglobin in your red blood cells has to be in a reduced state before it can carry oxygen. In other words, if it is oxidized hemoglobin, like in methemoglobin, oxygen cannot bind to methemoglobin therefore methemoglobin is not any good for carrying oxygen to your cells. It is Glutathione that reduces hemoglobin to the +2 state, which is the reduced state, and then it can carry oxygen on through your blood.

Another function of Glutathione is that it will protect against oxidative stress of the immune system allowing newly formed immune cells to proliferate to attack germs, viruses and the like.

Glutathione is the master of sequestering free radicals. Free radicals are generated normally in your metabolic processes. It not only sequesters those free radicals that are unwanted, it will take the free radicals that are generated as a result of exposure to your environment. You are constantly expose to industrial environments and chemicals and other agents that produce free radicals in your body. Glutathione will sequester this.

Glutathione is also important in protecting the nucleus and DNA of the cell and most importantly the mitochondrial DNA of the cell. Mitochondrial DNA is not very well protected. If you damage the mitochondrial DNA it results in cell death. This is what Glutathione protects against.

Glutathione is also important in the protein biosynthesis process. What happens is Glutathione takes amino acids, which are as you know the building blocks of protein, from the outside of the cell and transports it to the inside of the cell where protein biosynthesis can take place.

One of the most important things in this modern industrial world is that Glutathione is the first line of protection against environmental chemicals and toxins. It not only sequesters free radicals but other things like household chemicals that could be ingested or [absorbed] on the skin.

I can tell you again that Glutathione is the most important endogenous antioxidant there is.

Dr. Nagasawa received his B.S. degree in chemistry from Western Reserve University (now, Case-Western Reserve) in Cleveland, Ohio, and a Ph.D. degree in organic chemistry from the University of Minnesota. Subsequently, he spent two years as a Post-doctoral Fellow in biochemistry at the University of Minnesota before joining the research staff of the V.A. Medical Center in Minneapolis as a Senior Chemist. He was appointed Assistant Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Minnesota in 1959. He was named Principal Scientist of the VAMC in 1961 and was promoted in 1976 to Senior Research Career Scientist, a nationwide VA title reserved for the VA’s top scientists. He was promoted to Associate Professor in 1963 and to Professor of Medicinal Chemistry in 1973.

Dr. Nagasawa has held joint professorships in the Department of Pharmacology and the university-wide Division of Toxicology, and served as Visiting Professor at Washington State University in 1990. He also served for 32 years as a Senior Editor for the prestigious international Journal of Medicinal Chemistry from 1972 to 2004, and one year as Acting Editor-in-Chief. In addition, he served on the Editorial Board of the journal, Bioconjugate Chemistry for eight years, and as an ad hoc grant reviewer for the NCI and NIAAA, National Institutes of Health.

Dr. Nagasawa has published over 165 papers in peer-reviewed journals. In June of 2010, Dr. Nagasawa and his team attended the National Institutes of Health-Homeland Security 4th Annual Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats Network Symposium to present their work on the cyanide antidote.

Dr. Nagasawa ha long been regarded as one of the worlds leading research scientists on cellular function, Glutathione and the chemistry and delivery of Glutathione. He and his laboratory have be awarded an extraordinary 9 patents.

Glutathione is perhaps the most exciting one of them all.
If you have not heard of glutathione yet, get ready, you will be.
Glutathione is referred to as the the mother of all antioxidants, the master detoxifier and maestro of the immune system.  It’s the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease yet you’ve probably never heard of it.
It’s the secret to prevent aging, cancer, heart disease, dementia and more, and necessary to treat everything from autism to Alzheimer’s disease.  The good news is that your body produces its own glutathione.  The bad news is that poor diet, pollution, toxins, medications, stress, trauma, aging, infections and radiation all deplete your glutathione.   This leaves you susceptible to unrestrained cell disintegration from oxidative stress, free radicals, infections and cancer. And your liver gets overloaded and damaged, making it unable to do its job of detoxification.

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a very simple molecule that is produced naturally all the time in your body.  It is a combination of three simple building blocks of protein or amino acids — cysteine, glycine and glutamine.  The secret of its power is the sulfur (SH) chemical groups it contains. Sulfur is a sticky, smelly molecule.  It acts like fly paper and all the bad things in the body stick onto it, including free radicals and toxins like mercury and other heavy metals.
Normally glutathione is recycled in the body — except when the toxic load becomes too great. And that explains why we are in such trouble … The Importance of Glutathione in Protecting Against Chronic Illness.
Glutathione is critical for one simple reason:  It recycles antioxidants.  You see, dealing with free radicals is like handing off a hot potato.  They get passed around from vitamin C to vitamin E to lipoic acid and then finally to glutathione which cools off the free radicals and recycles other antioxidants.   After this happens, the body can “reduce” or regenerate another protective glutathione molecule and we are back in business.
However, problems occur when we are overwhelmed with too much oxidative stress or too many toxins.  Then the glutathione becomes depleted and we can no longer protect ourselves against free radicals, infections, or cancer and we can’t get rid of toxins.  This leads to further sickness and soon we are in the downward spiral of chronic illness.
But that’s not all.  Glutathione is also critical in helping your immune system do its job of fighting infections and preventing cancer.  That’s why studies show that it can help in the treatment of AIDS.
Glutathione is also the most critical and integral part of your detoxification system.  All the toxins stick onto glutathione, which then carries them into the bile and the stool — and out of your body.
And lastly, it also helps us reach peak mental and physical function.  Research has shown that raised glutathione levels decrease muscle damage, reduce recovery time, increase strength and endurance and shift metabolism from fat production to muscle development.  If you are sick or old or are just not in peak shape, you likely have glutathione deficiency.  Keeping yourself healthy, boosting your performance, preventing disease and aging well depends on keeping your glutathione levels high.  It is critical for immune function and controlling inflammation. It is the master detoxifier and the body’s main antioxidant, protecting our cells and making our energy metabolism run well.
