The benefits of a vegan diet are often touted by plant-based proponents. Many claim that ditching animal products can lead to improved sexual function.
An article by media outlet Insider examined these claims, speaking to registered dietitian Bonnie Taub-Dix in a bid to discover the truth. According to the article: "Eating more fruits and vegetables can definitely improve your circulation, which, in turn, can improve sexual function."
In addition, Taub-Dix told Insider: "If someone is eating a healthier diet undefined, it's less likely that they'll need to take meds that could interfere with their sex drive and function."

The Game Changers
The connection between sex drive and a plant-based diet is one that was explored in upcoming vegan documentary The Game Changers. Executive produced by James Cameron, the film features a host of top athletes, all performing on a plant-based diet.
Cameron made headlines earlier this year when he said he wanted to 'put viagra out of business' by spreading the word about the sexual benefits of plant-based eating, in an interview with Toronto-based paper The Star.
The filmmaker referenced a scene from the movie which shows three men having the length and girth of their erections measured after eating plant-based meals - and experiencing better erections. Cameron, who calls it 'peter meter' scene, said it is 'the scene of the film'.
He added: "I'd love to put Viagra out of business, just by spreading the word on plant-based eating."
