the danger of ed pills
Millions and millions of American males are now coming out to consult their physicians for
something that used to be looked at with embarrassment and even denial. Erectile dysfunction is
now an acceptable topic of medical studies and patient-doctor discussions. Throughout the years,
technological advances in the field of medicine has given rise to medical treatment for erectile
dysfunction. There are now a number of ways to help erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction is a condition where a male is unable to achieve an erection or sustain an
erection to perform sexual activity. An erection is achieved when the brain sends a chemical
signal to the penile muscles causing it to relax. It starts with sexual stimulation that can either be
in tactile or mental form. A chemical called nitric oxide released in the nerves is responsible
causing the penile muscles to relax and allow rapid blood flow. This blood accumulation fills up
the penis much like an inflated balloon and causes it to be erect. When another chemical
phosphodiesterase type 5 presents itself, the nitric oxide is broken down causing the penile
muscles to constrict again and lose the erection.
Getting to the root of the erectile condition is key to finding ways to help erectile dysfunction. The
most common cause of the condition is damage to the nerves, arteries, smooth muscles, and
fibrous tissues resulting form diseases like diabetes, kidney disease, alcoholism, neurological
diseases, and other cardiovascular diseases. About 70 percent of those suffering from erectile
dysfunction are known to have any or a combination of these diseases. Testosterone deficiency is
also a hormonal problem that can result in erectile dysfunction. Pinpointing the cause of the
dysfunction makes it easier to find ways to help erectile dysfunction.
Physicians would most often choose to go for the less invasive ways to help erectile dysfunction
before they suggest the more invasive treatments like implants and surgeries. The first
recommendation would be to go for counselling and to implement some lifestyle changes. An
initial psychosocial examination will be conducted by the physician to determine if there are nonmedical causes for the dysfunction. In some cases, even the sexual partner may be invited for an
interview. Healthy lifestyle practices like regular exercise, normal weight, and elimination of vices
such as smoking and drinking are recommended for those seeking ways to help erectile
dysfunction. Studies show that people who live healthy lives are more likely to experience
improvements in their condition during treatment.
Natural ways to help erectile dysfunction are perhaps the safest way to treat the condition. There
are herbal cures that contain the same ingredient as prescription drugs but not the potential risk
factors involved. Erectile dysfunction is mainly a blood circulation problem, a problem that can be
addressed by taking herbal medication. These herbal supplements are often recommended as
part of a nutrition therapy that also involves taking vitamins and minerals and doing regular
exercise. Epimedium Grandiflorum extract, otherwise known as the horny goat weed, has been
used for centuries in reproductive beverages that boost the sex drive and treat erectile
dysfunction. This extract also contains icarin, a flavnoid, the same ingredient found in common
erectile dysfunction prescription drugs. Other herbal ways to help erectile dysfunction in a natural
way are taking gingko biloba for improved penile blood flow, L-Arginine for the creation of nitric
oxide, zinc to compensate for mineral deficiency, and Indian ginseng for body strengthening.
Many males nowadays experience erectile dysfunction because of their lifestyle or sometimes a
disease that they have. This is the reason why vitamins for erectile dysfunction are increasing in
popularity. But before we discuss that, let's discuss first the meaning of erectile dysfunction.
Erectile dysfunction can be defined as not being able to have or sustain erection. Many factors
are attributed to this malfunction such as unhealthy lifestyle like smoking or diseases among old
people. Usually, middle-aged person experience erectile dysfunction.
These men are in search of vitamins for erectile dysfunction. However, because of increasing
demands of such vitamins, many opportunists take advantage of this and market or sell fake
vitamins that they claim have positive effects on impotence.
Here are some examples of vitamins that were said to have positive effects on erectile
DHEA or dehydroepiandrosterone is said to be effective when it comes to combating impotence.
Males who are having problems with erection usually have low blood levels of this hormone. An
experiment was conducted among 40 men who have low DHEA level. Half of them were given
50mg of DHEA and the other half was given placebos. The results confirmed that this vitamin for
erectile dysfunction helps. However, there are still debates about the safety of using this vitamin,
so be careful and be informed before you take in this vitamin.
Another vitamin for erectile dysfunction is arginine. Arginine is an amino acid that affects the
production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is necessary for men with erectile dysfunction problem. It
widens blood vessels so that blood can flow easily, thus, causing an erection. There was also an
experiment conducted to test men with erectile dysfunction. In the first trial which lasted for two
weeks, 15 men took in 2800 mg of arginine in a day. However, only 6 of them had improvement in
their erection. In the second trial which has larger sample and which lasted for 6 weeks,
participants had to take in 1670 mg of arginine every day. The results revealed that if men have
unusual metabolism of nitric oxide, this vitamin for erectile dysfunction will have a more positive
effect than if the men have normal metabolism of nitric oxide. On the one hand, there is not yet an
established data about the level or degree of effectiveness of arginine. But on the other hand,
there are many researches that say that arginine will most likely help men with erectile
Combining one kind of L-carnitine, propionyl-L-carnitine, and acetyl-L-carnitine is the another
vitamin for erectile dysfunction. This helps older people who have erectile dysfunction related to
low level of testosterone. The amount of these vitamins that one should take in is 2 g for each
vitamin. These two vitamins have more positive results when it comes to increasing testosterone
level than medications for low level of testosterone.
The last example of vitamins for erectile dysfunction that might really help is Pycnogenol, a
substance found in Pinus pinaster, a kind of tree. If given 120 mg every day, this might just
improve your sexual intercourse with your partner.
One should not be afraid or ashamed of having erectile dysfunction because nowadays, people
have many options that can help them beat or overcome erectile dysfunction.
