Impotence - Caused by High Cholesterol
Cholesterol, found in the cell membranes of all tissue, is a lipid comprised of steroids and alcohol that travels through the blood plasma. Men and women with high cholesterol levels and proportions of LDL ("bad cholesterol") and HDL ("good cholesterol") are at risk for cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is especially dangerous because of its buildup of artery deposits known as plaque, which can stop the flow of blood, leading to heart attacks and strokes. The build up of plaque in the peripheral arteries can too lead to impotence. The peripheral arteries inside the penis can become inelastic, preventing blood from flowing normally to an erection.
Why Erectile Drugs FailMost prescription drugs for erectile dysfunction provide short-term relief by relaxing the smooth muscles that lines the arteries. The relaxation increases blood flow to the genital area, but prescription drugs do not work effectively for long term because plaque buildup in the penile arteries impedes blood flow.
Add Pistachio To Your Diet
Turkish Dr. J.
Aldermir has reported that eating pistachios for over three weeks can lower your LDL level, increase HDL, and improve your erectile function all together. 
Increased cholesterol levels can harm the smooth muscle of the penis, particularly the endothelium of corpus cavernosum. The endothelium is the inner lining of blood vessels that regulates arterial health of the penis. Men with high cholesterol cannot sustain an erection for longer because of a damaged endothelium. If left untreated, the breakdown of the endothelial function and structure from oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation, bad diet and high LDL cholesterol can cause plaque formation that leads to impotence.  
Statin drugs, often perscribed to lower cholesterol (LDL), slow the progression of atherosclerosis and block the synthesis of both CoQ 10 and liver steroid enzymes. The blockage inhibits HMG-CoA reductase that is involved in the production of cholesterol in the liver. Inhibited liver enzymes minimize the production of androgen hormones, i.e., DHEA, androstenedione, and testosterone. When these androgen hormones become lowered, men experience a reduction in erection quality.
E.D. is an Early Sign of Cardiovascular DiseasesEndothelial dysfunction causes constriction of blood vessels, inflammation and plaque formation. Research has shown that endothelial dysfunction is the fundamental culprit behind many forms of cardiovascular disease, peripheral artery disease, chronic renal failure, diabetes and impotence. In fact, impotence is a good indicator signaling the onset of severe endothelial dysfunction that eventually leads to many chronic cardiovascular diseases.
The best medicine for fighting impotence caused by high cholesterol remains a proper diet. Dieting can help lower cholesterol and prevent plaque accumulation. Most doctors agree: fruits, vegetables, whole grains, brown rice, multi-grain products and exercise can help lower and maintain your cholesterol levels. Even rich fibers foods, such as oats, barley, black beans and lentils, are a good source of foods that control cholesterol. Doctors recommend that individuals be mindful of cooking oils, as these addetive can raise or lower LDL and HDL levels . Men and women should avoid butter as it contains loads of LDL levels. Instead olive, canola and nut oils are rich in mono-unsaturated fats that increase HDL levels instead of LDL.
Known to promote HMG-CoA reductase action, Red Yeast Rice helps promote healthy cholesterol levels.  Red Yeast Rice has been used by the Chinese dating back to the Tang Dynasty (800AD) as part of herbal culinary to aid digestion and invigorate blood flow. Traditional Chinese Herbal Culinary features several Red Yeast Rice dishes. For example, Red Yeast Rice can be dried and grinded into powered (Zhi Tai); it too can be made into an herbal tonic mixed with alcohol.
Amazing Fermented Rice
A blend of Cuscuta Chinensis, Morinda Officinalis, Sarsaparilla Jamaican, Schisandra Chinensis, Butea Superba, Ren Shen and Lepidium Meyenii in Red Yeast Rice For Erectile Dysfunction work together to restore healthy endothelial function, promoting healthy erections without the adverse side effects.
