    I do not drink milk. My mother weaned me years ago 🙂

    I use Vitamin D3.  As you know, sunlight is also a good and free source of D

    Yes, I was thinking that whether I bought the claims or not, milk and sunlight are generally good healthy things regardless. 🙂

      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5503426/  – The role of Vitamin D supplementation on erectile dysfunction

      https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5817208/  – In the whole sample, after performing logistic regression models, higher levels of 25(OH) vitamin D were significantly associated with high values of total testosterone and of all the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) questionnaire parameters. On the other hand, higher levels of total testosterone were positively and significantly associated with high levels of erectile function and IIEF total score. After vitamin D replacement therapy, total and free testosterone increased and erectile function improved

        I supplement with vitamin D in the winter (as per UK government recommendations given the lack of sunlight in Scotland), and I can’t say I’ve noticed much difference.

        In the UK it’s estimated that about half the population has vitamin D insufficiency, so seasonal supplementation makes sense. although the effect on bone health is probably more of a concern.

          I have taken Vitamin D for years. Although I have no ED issues, no cause/effect can be inferred. No plans to change my vitamin regime (primary physician in full support) since ‘it ain’t broke.’ 😄
