Need yet another reason to go vegan? Well, how about a better sex life? Singer Jason Mraz recently admitted that his plant-based diet made him better in bed, and now the doctors featured in “Forks Over Knives” are explaining exactly why that is.

In the film, Dr. Terry Mason explains that, “The body is all connected. If you have vascular disease anywhere, you have it everywhere. Erectile dysfunction is actually the first clinical indicator of generalized cardiovascular disease…Inside the penis, you have the highest per cross section area of endothelial cells, and endothelial cells are what are responsible for the initiation of increased blood flow to create an erection… And the diseases that damage the endothelial cells are diabetes, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and things of that nature.”

The doctors go on to explain how adopting a vegan diet can prevent or treat those conditions, and improve blood flow to the sexual organs — ergo, vegan is the new Viagra!

But wait, there’s more. Not only can a plant-based diet help men “raise the flag” — it can help women do so as well!

Yes, you read that right. Although men and women are anatomically different, biologically speaking, they work the same in terms of arousal. Which means a plant-based diet can improve sex across the board.
