There must be a hundred reasons why gardening is good for you and here’s one specifically for men. Gardening, according to a study by the Medical University of Vienna, can help prevent erectile dysfunction. 

In fact, as little as 30 minutes a week digging, weeding or mowing the lawn can grammatically improve a man’s performance in bed. And those who spend even more time in the garden can halve their risk of erectile dyfunction.

Of course, this only confirms something already fairly well-known: that moderate excercise, be it from gardening, dancing or cycling, is simply good for you. 

“Erectile function can be maintained even by low, regular physical activity,” concludes the report. “Energy expenditure of as little as 1,000 calories a week reduces the risk. Doctors should use these findings to encourage their patients to do more physical training and adopt a healthier lifestyle.”
