Fenugreek has been used as an aphrodisiac for more than 4,000 years. It increases testosterone production through increasing a hormone called DHEA and also by increasing another hormone called luteinizing hormone. Fenugreek also increases nitric oxide levels, which improves bloodflow to the penis.
Horny Goat Weed (60% Icariin)
Horny Goat Weed has been used for sexual health for more than 3,000 years. It improves sexual function in 3 ways: 1) It is a PDE5 inhibitor (same as Viagra, just about 80 times less potent), 2) It increases nitrix oxide (increases bloodflow to penis), and 3) It increases testosterone.
L-arginine is an amino acid that is important for functions such as metabolism, cell division and protein synthesis. But L-arginine is also essential for the inner lining of your blood vessels to create nitric oxide. And nitric oxide in turn is crucial in order for you to get and maintain an erection.
L-citrulline is converted to L-arginine in your kidneys. You now have L-arginine that will help your blood vessels create nitric oxide. L-citrulline can be more effective than L-arginine because L-arginine often gets eliminated through various reactions in the body, so that little is left to make nitric oxide.
TongKat Ali (200:1)
Tongkat Ali has a history of hundreds of years as a sexual enhancer. It has shown an ability to increase testosterone in 4 ways: 1) By increase luteinizing hormone levels, 2) by impairing the ability of SHBG to bind to testosterone, 3) by decreasing estrogene levels, and 4) by reducing cortisol levels.
Pine Bark (95% Procyanidins)
Pine bark extract comes from the bark of pine trees. It contains flavonoids called procyanidins. These procyanidins increase the efficiency of the creation of nitric oxide and also prolongs the life of nitric oxide. This means you will have more nitric oxide supporting erections, for longer.
Tribulus Terrestris (60% Sapon.)
Tribulus Terrestris has been taken as an aphrodisiac for more than 3,000 years. It increases testosterone levels by increasing a hormone called DHEA and also by increasing another hormone called luteinizing hormone. Fenugreek also increases nitric oxide levels, which improves bloodflow to the penis.
ZMA (90 Capsules)
ZMA is a scientifically designed supplement that contains zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6. Each of these three components are critical for testosterone production. Research has also shown that particularly zinc and magnesium are essential for a man's ability to get and maintain erections.
Supplements For Erectile Dysfunction
Do supplements for erectile dysfunction actually work? And if so, which are the best ones?
Yes, supplements can indeed treat erectile dysfunction. But you need to know how to take them, what supplements to take, and when to take them.
My experience has taught me that to make them work super well, I need to:
- Take very high quality supplements
- Take a large dose
- Take them about 60-90 minutes before sex
- And combine more than one supplement
In fact, herbal supplements have been used for thousands of years both to treat erectile dysfunction and as an aphrodisiac.
Herbal remedies have been, and still are a centerpiece in many ancient practices such as traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda.
