Prescribed statins

Men who have been prescribed statins to reduce their cholesterol and increase the flow of blood through their arteries may be surprised that these drugs may also help with their sex life. A study involving 100 men aged from 40 to 70 has shown that statins improved erectile dysfunction about half as much as medications specifically designed to deal with erection problems, like Viagra. Of course Viagra works much faster (typically within 30 minutes), but as the researchers note, why not boost your heart and your erections at the same time?
