Today’s question is from Rick and he asks:
“Are there any natural treatments for erectile dysfunction?”
… which is also known as “ED” or “impotence” or even “low sex drive”.
The good news for you is, YES!… There are a few natural remedies for erectile dysfunction that work really well and I’ll reveal them to you afterwords.
The bad news is that MOST of the products you hear about do NOT work and are basically a waste of your time and money.
Today I’ll quickly discuss natural herbal remedies and in a future articles, I’ll cover natural “diet” and “exercise” solutions for improving your erections and sex drive.
Most Products Don’t Work!
As stated, most products do NOT work and this is because
- They’re using the WRONG ingredients, which have no clinical or scientific research in HUMAN studies.
- They’re using LOW dosages of “right” ingredients and thus, it’s worthless. And this is done to save money.
- It’s a poorly designed formula that doesn’t address and fix ALL the primary causes of erectile dysfunction and impotence.
For those that don’t know, I’m an anti-aging and endocrinology doctor… which is the study of HORMONES.
And thus, why most people come to ME to help fix this problem because “erectile dysfunction” or “impotence” is primarily an imbalance in your hormones, due to aging…
Which can be easily “fixed” or greatly improved at ANY AGE, which is what you’ll discover today.
1. Increase Your Testosterone Levels
The first thing you want to do is increase your primary “sex drive” hormone, which is testosterone… which declines dramatically after the age of 25.
The best, clinically researched ingredients are:
- Testofen® Fenugreek Extract (Trigonella foenum-graecum; 50% fenusides, 50% Saponins)
- Avena Sativa Extract (Oat Straw 100:1)
- Tongkat Ali Extract (Eurycoma Longifolia Jack 100:1)
- Maca Root (6% Extract)
Please note that these are all EXTRACTS containing the active ingredients, not “root powder” which is dead, worthless and cheap.
2. Increase Your “Free” Testosterone
Most of your “circulating testosterone” is bound to sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). So the your goal is to “free up” this “bounded” do NOT work and this done by lowering your SHBG utilizing the following clinically researched ingredients:
- Bulgarian Pro-Tribulus™ Terrestris Extract (90% Sapongenins + 40% protodioscin)
- Stinging Nettle (95% Extract) (Urtica Dioica)
3. Increase Nitric Oxide (NO) and Blood Flow
One of the primary ways Viagra, Cialis and similar “ED” drugs work, is by increasing “nitric oxide (NO)” levels. This causes your penis to dilate and increase blood flow, causing a harder and fuller erection.
This can be stimulated naturally utilizing the following clinically researched ingredients:
- AAKG (L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate)
- Ginger Extract (Zingiber Officinale)
4. Reduce The “Stress Hormone”, Cortisol
As you may know, “stress” is a major problem for your health and even more so for your penis. This is because the “opposite” hormone to testosterone is NOT estrogen (the female hormone), but CORTISOL — the “stress” hormone.
One of my favorite ingredients to use is Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium; Icarrin 20% Extract) because it’s clinically proven to help reduce cortisol AND increase your total and free testosterone levels.
5. Lower Your “Female” Hormones — Estrogen & Prolactin
As men get older, our “female” hormones estrogen and prolactin levels go higher, which then causes your testosterone levels to go down.
This is the OPPOSITE of what you want. You can help lower estrogen by using DIM and lower prolactin using Vitex Agnus Castus (1.5% Agnusides)
6. Optimize Dopamine
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter… It helps you feel “happier” and more confident.
Thus, very important for your mindset, which obviously affects your libido.
One of my favorite ingredients which helps increase Dopamine naturally is Macuna Pruriens (25% L-Dopa)
As you can see, the human body is complicated.
Taking drugs such as testosterone injections, Viagra or similar drugs addresses only ONE of the “symptoms”, which can cause Erectile Dysfunction … Thus, only being a temporary and short-term “fix”.
What you want is an all-in-one solution that helps address ALL the primary CAUSES of impotence, so your sex drive goes up and STAYS up, naturally.
