Erectile Dysfunction : Herbal Alternatives

Smart Herbal Alternatives for Sexual Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is a very common disorder that occurs in men, and it can occur due to any number of reasons.  It often occurs increasingly as men age, and this is definitely a source of embarrassment and frustration for countless men who may have never previously experienced it before they started to get a little older.

While of course there are a bevy of drugs that are made for erectile dysfunction, there are also thankfully a lot of herbs that have the same types of effects on the blood flow to this important area. They are called vasodillators, because they help the vessels to relax and enable blood to flow through more easily, which helps immensely with erectile dysfunction in men (it may even help women experience better sex as well).

Herbal erectile dysfunction treatments such as Virility EX are becoming increasingly sought after as an effective solution to help get a guy back on track, enjoying sex again, and able to get erections easily.

In today’s stressful world of financial and familial obligations, relationships, and a million other obligations, much of erectile dysfunction is likely due to high stress levels.  For this reason, it’s imperative that you discover a way to reduce stress, or at least the effects you allow it to have on you, in your life.

Ingredients in herbal treatments for erectile dysfunction can include the popular muira puama, which is a stimulant derived from a shrub.  The part of the shrub that is used is a woody part, and the bark, which has been dubbed “potency wood” for its natural sexual enhancement qualities.  It is also a known natural aphrodisiac.

Niacin, which is a derivative of vitamin B, is also a great ingredient to look for in herbal erectile dysfunction treatments .  This vitamin actually is an essential amino acid that many men don’t have enough of.  Dosing with this amino acid helps to open up the blood vessels and increase blood flow.

This helps with flaccidity and inability to sustain an erection because it really gets that blood flowing in the nether regions, which is where you need it to flow when you get sexually aroused.  Many erectile dysfunction medications use the same mechanism by which to make erections possible, or help them occur more easily and for a longer time.  It’s all about the blood flow baby!

Bioflavanoids, which are found in some herbal compounds like hawthorne, are excellent in conjunction with niacin, because they relax the blood vessel, and encourage the blood to flow more evenly throughout the body. With the increased blood flow niacin allows, this really helps loosen everything up and get the blood flowing to the right places in order to allow for a fast acting, long lasting erection (and a pleased partner).

Horny goat weed is another one to look for.  Horny goat weed also goes by the plant name of epimedium, and also goes by several other pet names beside horny goat weed.  It has long been known for its libido enhancing capabilities, and has been used for decades to help treat erectile dysfunction in men without medications.

Horny goat weed, or epimedium, can also be used by woman to help enhance their sexual desire. As you can see, it is quite the versatile sexual herb!

Here’s one that you may not have known can have sexual benefits.  The herb ginkgo biloba, which most people associate with improved cognition, focus and ability to think quickly, actually has some sexual side effects as well. Good side effects, that is!

You may or may not know that the way ginkgo is supposed to help you think more quickly and focus, is that it increases the circulation of blood to the brain. This means, there is more oxygen flow to the brain as well. This has an overall energizing effect on the body, and a rejuvenating effect on the mind, which translates into improved sexual function in many cases as well.

I highly recommend you get an herbal erectile dysfunction formula that includes ginkgo.  I actually take the ginkgo supplement by itself for its cognition benefits, and find that it provides an overall great energy as well.

Tribulus is an ingredient apart from the other traditional herbs used in these herbal supplements.  It is one that is used to actually increase the male hormone circulation in the body.  Testosterone, the primary androgen (male hormone) that is responsible for sex drive, and most other male traits, is a primary driver behind libido and sexual performance.

Tribulus is great for helping to enhance the sexual hormones that are circulating, and this helps your overall sexual performance as well as your libido. It can help to ward off problems with impotence and erectile dysfunction in general, as well as premature ejaculation.

Overall, you have some GREAT herbal supplement choices when it comes to helping cure your erectile dysfunction, whichever type you might be experiencing. And don’t feel bad, this problem is a LOT more common than you think, and it also can come and go like the seasons. You just have to be prepared for it.
