Gentlemen, nothing makes you question your manhood more than an episode of erectile dysfunction. The fact is, if you’re in your mid-lie (and older) and you are suffering with erectile dysfunction, you’re not alone. By the time you reach 75 (and beyond), your risk of experiencing erectile dysfunction will have climbed up to 77.5 per cent.
But if there’s one piece of good news about erectile dysfunction, it’s that you don’t need some pricey and dangerous prescription drug to get your sex life rolling again.
In fact, I’ve found a natural three-part combo that’s been proven to help restore erectile function… and could give you your bedroom mojo back in a hurry.
In a breakthrough study published in the World Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, researchers found that a combination of l-arginine, pycnogenol, and red ginseng may help successfully treat erectile dysfunction.
L-arginine’s unique ability to relieve erectile dysfunction has been confirmed by a number of studies that have shown its ability to form a substance called nitric oxide (NO), which increases blood flow “down there” during sexual arousal.
The more NO there is, the stronger the erection. (This is exactly how those prescription penis pills work, in fact!)
But combining l-arginine with pycnogenol and red ginseng seems to supercharge its effects.
Pycnogenol, extracted from the bark of French pine trees, is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory that also increases blood flow. In one study, men ages 25 to 45 with documented ED experienced a mild positive effect after taking a low dose of oral l-arginine for a month; but it was when pycnogenol was added that the men’s improvement skyrocketed to as much as 90 per cent!
Red ginseng has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to increase stamina, strength, and virility in men – but it shouldn’t be confused with Siberian ginseng. The Siberian variety doesn’t contain the same therapeutic compounds that are found in the other ginsengs.
One great thing about this combination of l-arginine, pycnogenol, and red ginseng is its safety record. This is essential for male sexual dysfunction, since the potential side effects of common ED drugs aren’t tolerated well by many men, and are dangerous to some.
To raise your NO levels, you can also supplement with citrulline, quercetin, and the aptly-named herb “horny goat weed.” Foods such as spinach, garlic, cocoa, pomegranate, and all the citrus fruits can also help raise NO levels.
Finally, I would not be able to sleep tonight if I didn’t mention that exercise also has been shown to increase nitric oxide levels as well.
And since you get a good workout from doing the “horizontal mambo,” once you jump-start your battery, your engine shouldn’t have any trouble running.
Have fun!Wishing you the best of health,
