Olive Oil Helps Reduce Erectile Dysfunction
A recent study involving approximately six hundred men showed that olive oil helps improve a man’s sexual performance. It keeps blood vessels healthy and improves circulation, resulting in better erections.
We’ve long known that olive oil can help reduce a person’s risk for heart disease and stroke, but now we find it’s good for sex, too? Bonus!
After years and years of article after article warning that all the good things in life – pizza, cheeseburgers, steaks, etc – are bad, it’s nice to hear that something is actually healthy for us. And it’s something that doesn’t taste like kale!
Olive oil is generally used in cooking and salad dressings. Many restaurants now offer flavor-infused olive oils with that pre-dinner bread basket they lay on your table, instead of the standard artery-clogging butter. And, luckily for you, Dear Readers, I have a delicious way to help you get more olive oil into your diet. My grandfather taught me a recipe his father taught him. Coming from Italy, he naturally loved pasta. But later in his life, gravy (tomato sauce to Americans) caused him stomach problems due to the acidity. No problem, Aglio E Olio to the rescue.
Aglio E Olio is pasta with garlic and oil. Take a couple cloves of fresh garlic (do NOT use pre-minced garlic in a jar, EVER!), and cut them into thin slices. Add a dash of crushed red pepper and slowly saute over a low heat for about 3-4 minutes. When done, pour it over spaghetti and toss. Before serving, add a little Italian Parsley and grate some Parmigiano-Reggiano over the top. Parmesan cheese works too, but if you’ve never had Reggiano, buy a wedge and do a taste comparison. You will never eat domestic parmesan again, price difference be damned.
Veggie lover? Add sundried tomatoes to the mix. Carnivore? Add some pancetta when you’re cooking the garlic. Sweet tooth? Add a tablespoon of white wine. Be creative.

(Note – caution. If you plan on having sex anytime within 48 hours after eating Spaghetti Aglio E Olio, do your partner a favor. Brush your teeth at least three times, down a couple ounces of mouthwash, and eat a dozen Tic Tacs.)
