Herbal Medicine For Erectile Dysfunction – Which Herbs Can Help You Put The Bang Back In The Bedroom?
In this article, herbal medicine for erectile dysfunction, I talk about which herbs work best at helping you to regain those rock solid erections and put that “bang back in the bedroom!”.
So let’s get on and name those herbs!
Herbal Medicine For Erectile Dysfunction
Let’s list those lovely delightful hard on inducing herbs and some amazing Amino Acids that are effective too!
Ginkgo Biloba: Known as a study aid and gaining popularity in the bedroom for both men and women. Ginkgo Biloba is known to enhance blood flow and improve circulation. Helps improve memory and is an anti-depressant also.
Studies showed the herb to be 76% effective for men at improving the quality of erections in men and a 91% improvement in sexual stimulation and excitation in women! It enhances the effects of nitric oxide, which is an important gaseous substance for achieving erections!
Ideally, you should be taking 120mg 3 times daily for the best effects. However, like anything be forwarned that best effects are seen after 6 weeks of use.
Rhodiola Rosea: Is a plant that grows in the arctic region and improves erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. Improves sexual satisfaction, erections, orgasms and response to orgasms. This one too is effective for the ladies with many menopausal females commenting that it..and I quote “brushes the cobwebs away” Don’t miss out on trying this one with your lady friends!
Cordyceps Militaris: A mushroom that is adored by athletes and may well just help you get that athletic performance between the sheets. Commonly used in the Himalayan Mountain range by traditional healers to cure erectile dysfunction and forms part of both Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine.
Reduces blood fats, reduces blood pressure, increases circulation and protects your gonads as well as restoring your general and sexual vitality! I usually take mine mixed in a glass of milk. I suggest that you do try and help bring back that sexual athlete in you!
Reishi Mushroom: Known as the mushroom of immortality! And perhaps your sexual immortality too! This is also known as Ganoderma and in latin the full name is Ganoderma Lucidum. It is contained in many different supplements and its use dates back over four thousand years!
Reishi has positive effects on your heart, your hearts Qi, improves your blood and circulation and has great effects on your kidneys – All of which are the root of sexual potency and passion!. Give this a try and perhaps you can become a sexually immortal – or a passionate legend between the sheets at least in the eyes of your partner!
Bacopa Monnieri: Very much a nootropic and is better known as a herbal viagra for the brain than a sexual performance enhancer – although it does have its use in this aspect as it enhances nitric oxide and improves circulation.
It is used in Ayurvedic medicine to help the body to adapt to stressful situations and helps with depression and anxiety as well as high blood pressure meaning it helps with causes of erectile dysfunction! Its ability to improve memory should help you get in your partner’s panties.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that remembering her birthday and anniversary’s could lead to some action in the bedroom!
Shatavari: AKA Asparagus racemosus has been used for thousands of years in Himalayan and Ayurvedic herbal medicine to enhance and restore sexual potency and both men and women. It is the top Ayurvedic herb for our lovely ladies and has great benefits for us men too including enhancing your ability to orgasm and the intensity of the orgasms.
It also enhances the all-important erection inducing nitric oxide. Something that can heighten the intensity of orgasms and help your erectile dysfunction is something worth trying!
Chaga Mushrooms: Helps to prevent oxidative damage, reduces the risk of prostate cancer, enhances your sexual performance, boosts your libido, protects the body against DNA damage, protects the liver from damage, enhances immune system functionality, supports the gastrointestinal system, improves cognitive functions, and maintains a healthy blood sugar level.
Common nicknames are ‘King of Plants’ (China), Gift from God’ (Siberia), ‘Diamond of the Forest’ (Japan).
Muira Puama: Helps to increase libido, erectile function and rigidity, strength and stamina, reduces depression and stress. Intensity and frequency of morning wood also increased with the use of this Brazillian herb.
Studies showed that it helps to improve circulation and relax the corpus cavernous which allows your manhood to become relaxed and filled with blood. Definitely worth trying!
Pinus Pinaster: This is the bark from a pine tree supplements are commonly known as having or containing pycnogenol, of which the dosage is 120mg daily.
A potent antioxidant that can prevent oxidative damage helps with vasorelaxation and improving circulation and reducing cholesterol as well as helping to reduce blood systolic pressure. This is something you should try together with L-Arginine (see below) for better effects.
D-aspartic Acid: This is an amino acid that is produced by your body. You will also find it in foods like shrimps, beef, salmon, eggs and dairy produce, lentils, beans and nuts. It helps your body to produce and release testosterone, which helps you to get better stronger erections and improved sex drive and energy.
L Arginine: Another Amino Acid. It is a nitric oxide precursor and I have spoken at length about the importance of nitric oxide and its role in obtaining a quality erection.
Improves circulation even “down there”. The typical dosage for improving erectile function is 6grams daily for a period of 3 to 6 months. Interestingly, effects are enhanced when taken with Pinus Pinaster at a much lower dosage of 2 grammes daily with 120mg of Pinus Pinaster. It also helps to clear blocked or clogged arteries.
L Citrulline: Is an amino acid and precursor to L Arginine and nitric oxide. Approximately 80% of L-Citrulline gets converted into L-Arginine. For treating erectile dysfunction a lower dosage typically 5 grammes daily.
Like L Arginine you should see results within 3-6 months depending on the severity of your dysfunction. Worthy of note L Citrulline gives a more sustained release than that of L Arginine.
L-Carnitine: This is another helpful and useful amino acid for sufferers of erectile dysfunction. There are two forms of this amino acid – acetyl-L-carnitine and propionyl-L-carnitine. Men that are suffering from sexual disorders and sexual dysfunction like erectile dysfunction can use propionyl-L-carnitine if their causes are related to poor circulation or diabetes.
Older men with low testosterone can use both types of L-Carnitine (propionyl-L-carnitine in combination with acetyl-L-carnitine).
Using a combination of these four amino acids mentioned (propionyl-L-carnitine, acetyl-L-carnitine, L Arginine and L citrulline) together plus pycnogenol (Pinus Pinaster) is definitely worth trying – be sure to let me know your results and how you get on if you do!
DHEA: Dehydroepiandrosterone (Or DHEA for short!), like D-aspartic Acid, it not a herb but a natural hormone that is produced by your adrenal glands. The Supplement is made from soy and wild yam.
This supplement is effective at helping men to achieve a quality erection but not so effective it the cause is nerve damage or type 2 diabetes.
Horny Goat Weed: This herb is the one that always stands out due to its peculiar name! And in case you are wondering it is the herb that made goats horny! It is very effective at treating erectile dysfunction as it works in a very similar way in which prescription drugs for ED function – via Inhibition of the PDE 5 enzyme helping your body to better use the nitric oxide.

Tongkat Ali: Much more than the potent testosterone enhancer that it is famed for. It is an all round great adaptogen being useful for all kinds of aches and pains as well as fevers and viruses! It is a fat burner too and all round sex enhancer for both sexes!

Pine Pollen: Pine pollen is what I call the king of herbs! and perhaps reigns it’s royal rule over the supplements world too as it contains over 200+ nutrients! Until I discover a supplement with more its royal reign shall remain! What it most certainly is due to sheer number and density of nutrients is a mega food as it goes way beyond superfood!.

He Shou Wu: This herb is ideal if you lead a very stressful life. When you are stressed your cortisol levels are increased which reduces your testosterone levels making it an indirect testosterone enhancer.
It helps to de-stress you by blocking an evil enzyme (the Monoamine Oxide B enzyme (or MAO-B for short) that destroys the feel-good brain chemical and neurotransmitter dopamine.
It Increases energy and vitality also as the very same evil MAO-B enzyme destroys the natural stimulant phenylalanine. He Shou Wu is also excellent for enhancing your sex drive also as your dopamine levels are increased. It also helps with Nitric oxide and blood flow improving your circulation!
Mucuna Pruriens: like He Shou Wu above Mucuna Pruriens is good for those who’s main cause of erectile dysfunction is stress related.
This works in a very different way to the above-mentioned herb He Shou Wu. It contains levodopa which is an amino acid that crosses the blood-brain barrier and directly increases dopamine levels It can be taken either alone or in conjunction with He Shou Wu for sustained and prolonged high levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine by firstly elevating its levels and then prohibiting its breakdown.
It helps to boost your sex drive and testosterone levels indirectly. It also enhances your levels of nitric oxide, which is essential for erections to occur.
Yohimbine Bark: This is the bark of a West African Tree.Standardised as Yohimbine Hydrochloride in the United States it is a known prescription medication for treating erectile dysfunction and studies in Germany show it to much more effective when combined with L Arginine or Nitric Oxide Lozenges.
