Au Naturale: Natural Remedies For Erection Health Problems
According to the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, a little over half of men experience erection problems at some point in their lives. At age 40, about 40 percent struggle with the condition, and by 70 years old, about 70 percent of men struggle to achieve an erection. While medication is the best way to treat any erection problems, natural remedies can be used in conjunction with medication to help alleviate any erection problems. If you’re looking into incorporating natural remedies into helping your erection issues, consider some of these.
Yoga: While yoga practitioners tend to believe that yoga is a cure-all for whatever ails you, that isn’t always true. However, it has been proven to help with erection problems. Poses like downward facing dog can help to improve blood circulation, while the relaxing state of mind yoga puts you in can help with high blood pressure.
Acupuncture: While many men would be hesitant to let someone with needles near their bits and pieces, acupuncture can help to open up your constricted blood vessels, making it easier for blood to reach the penis. A recent study found that acupuncture improved the quality of erections and restored sexual activity in 39 percent of participants.
Arginine: An amino acid commonly found in food, arginine helps to boost the body’s production of nitric oxide, which relaxes the blood vessels. Relaxed blood vessels means blood can flow easily through the body, making it easier to achieve an erection. Sea food (especially crabs and lobsters) is high in arginine.
Horny goat weed: Don’t laugh. This oddly named herb has been used as a traditional remedy for sexual issues in China for centuries. Not only does horny goat weed help with fatigue and pain, a 2008 lab study found that a compound in the herb blocks the effects of an enzyme that restricts blood flow to the penis, making it easier to achieve an erection.
