Plant-based lovers do it better.

eating a JUST Egg quiche

A really good reason to eat more plants.

By now we’ve all heard eating plant-based is healthier — and that includes your sexual health. The evidence is clear: a healthy plant-based diet is associated with fewer issues in the bedroom and a longer, more vibrant life outside it.1,2

Dr. Robert Ostfeld, Director, Preventive Cardiology, Montefiore Health System says, “Consuming healthy plant-based foods can lower cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as improve blood flow, enhancing heart health and erectile function.” Here are some more facts:

  • Doctors characterize more than two-thirds of erectile dysfunction (ED) cases as vasculogenic and are linked to traditional modifiable cardiovascular risk factors such as high cholesterol.3,4

  • Reducing dietary cholesterol intake, as well as replacing saturated fat with polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat, can help reduce your blood cholesterol and your risk for developing both ED and cardiovascular disease.4,5

  • Among 100 men with ED and 100 matched controls, higher intakes of fruits, nuts and vegetables and a higher monounsaturated / polyunsaturated fat to saturated fat ratio were associated with lower risk of ED.6

So to celebrate Valentine’s Day, we’re thinking a delicious, plant-based breakfast with JUST Egg is a good place to start.
