Herbs For Erectile Dysfunction
I am going to present this as a list of herbs with some information about each one of them and how they help with ED. Is it impossible and too cumbersome to make one huge single article detailing all of the individual herbs, the article would be way too long and time-consuming for you to read in its entirety.
I have put links next to each one so that you can click read about which ones interest you or the one’s that you want more information about.
Pine Pollen Powder/Tincture: A powerful superfood or dare I say a megafood due to containing 200+ nutrients, many of which can help with different aspects and underlying causes of erectile dysfunction. From stress, to low testosterone, to poor sex drive and poor blood flow and high blood pressure.
The Tincture is more of a potent direct testosterone booster than the powder and is very much a natural hormone replacement therapy.
The powder contains more of the nutrients than the tincture. Click here for more information about Pine Pollen Tincture and click here for more information about Pine Pollen Powder.
Tongkat Ali: A very potent testosterone booster that is well known is Asia and Malaysia in particular for restoring sexual potency and augmenting sex drive in both men and women. boosts testosterone by working with the body and stimulating it to produce testosterone. Increases energy, vigour and vitality.
Also, prevents the aromatization process of converting testosterone into estrogen. Also good for weight loss thanks to the lipogenic capabilities. For more information about Tongkat Ali click here.
Horny Goat Weed: The herb with the funny name! this one is very interesting in how it works as it works in the exact same way in which Viagra does. This herb works as a nitric oxide booster by firstly blocking the enzyme, the PDE5 enzyme, which breaks down nitric oxide.
No nitric oxide = no erection, and reduced nitric oxide obviously reduces the quality of your erections. Long-term use of horny goat weed up-regulates your genes so that more of the relevant parts of your body produces and participates in the nitric oxide process.
Considered as a testosterone booster although not strictly true as it mimics testosterone in the gonads but does not increase testosterone, meaning you get the benefits of enhanced testosterone without actually increasing testosterone levels. Good for enhancing blood flow, reducing high blood pressure, for those with low testosterone seeking a natural boost. For more information about horny goat weed click here.
He Shou Wu: this is a herb that is great if you lead a stressful life. When you are stressed cortisol levels increase which decreases testosterone making it an indirect testosterone booster.
It helps to unstress you as it blocks an enzyme (the Monoamine Oxide B enzyme (MAO-B for short) that destroys the feel-good brain chemical and neurotransmitter dopamine. Increases energy and vitality as the same enzyme destroys the natural stimulant phenylalanine.
Mucuna Pruriens: like He Shou Wu above this herb is good for those who’s main cause of erectile dysfunction is stress or stress related. This works in a different way to the above-mentioned herb. It contains levodopa which crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases dopamine levels directly.
You can take it on its own or in conjunction with He Shou Wu for sustained high levels of Dopamine by firstly elevating its levels and then preventing its breakdown.
Augments sex drive and testosterone levels indirectly. Also increases levels of nitric oxide, which is essential for erections to occur. Click Here For more information about Mucuna Puriens
Shilajit Resin/Powder: Somewhat considered a super herb in the Indian subcontinent. The Resin, a waxy like substance is far more potent and contains greater concentrations of the 85+ minerals in an organic form. has been proven clinically to increase testosterone by 20% when taken long term.
Most definitely one to take if low testosterone, high blood pressure, or poor circulation is the cause of your dysfunction. It is said that every year you take Shilajit resin you will add a year to your life.
