Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is a common disorder that affects many men and can happen at any given moment. ED is when a man has trouble getting and maintaining an erection. For some men, it can be a one time issue caused by stress. However, most aren’t that lucky and can suffer from the disorder for long periods of time. Roughly 18 million men suffer from ED in America according to WebMD.
ED is often thought to affect men in their late-40s and early 50s. However, younger men are at risks of experiencing ED, some as young as their early 20s. Black men are at higher risk than any other group of men to experience erectile dysfunction.
Over the years there have been numerous supplements such as Viagra and Levitra. Unfortunately, these drugs often have more side effects than benefits.
More men are opting out of conventional drugs and are looking for more natural remedies.
A number of factors can attribute to ED, and in order to combat this issue, you have to eliminate these issues. Along with age, activities, like drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes, affect younger men. While older men who have diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, and prostate cancer tend to affect older men than younger men. Diet can also be an issue and overweight men are more likely than anyone to experience ED.
Here are three natural herbs that can combat erectile dysfunction.
You may have seen this word on those green pills in the convenient store next to a really ripped man with a woman caressing him, and wondered “what the hell is this?” well ginseng is an Asian flower that is commonly linked to increasing sexual performance in not only men but women as well.
Korean Red Ginseng is the most common form of Ginseng used to treat impotence in men. The herb, when taken in any natural form, can increase alertness, energy, and stamina. However, it can increase the effects of caffeine and can interfere with any medications.
The best way to consume it is through extractions that can be purchased virtually anywhere. The natural herb is NOT approved by the FDA and is extremely rare to find outside of Asian markets. However, if you have the herb, it is great in teas.
Horny Goat Weed
The name of this herb may give you a chuckle, but it’s really potent herb when combating impotence. Epimedium, commonly known as Horny Goat Weed, is a Chinese herb used to treat issues like Hayfever, never pain fatigue and Erectile dysfunction, along with many other conditions.
You can find this herb in local Chinese markets, as well as Apothecaries. From personal experience with the herb, Horny Goat Weed can increase energy, I have had the stamina to do things that felt like a chore. After about a few weeks of using it, I noticed my erections were a lot stronger and I was lasting longer in the bedroom.
I consumed the herb through tea, by steeping it in hot water for a few minutes. Other ways to consume it is by smoking it in a pipe or joint, consuming it through capsules, as well as in your meals.
Ginkgo Biloba is an herb that comes from a tree popular in Chinese territories. The herb is best known for its abilities to increase blood flow to the male member. Erectile dysfunction is caused due to the lack of blood flow to the member. Taking supplements that have Ginkgo in them can increase your blood flow.
The most common way to consume Ginkgo is through capsules commonly found in herbal shops. Like with the previous herbs mentioned, you can make your own capsules by purchasing empty capsules and a capsule plate holder.
