Erectile dysfunction or impotence is a difficult ailment to deal with not because it does not have any type of treatment but because those who suffer from it are usually not comfortable in talking about it. The inability to get or sustain an erection is something very embarrassing for most men but what many do not know is that ED is very common and affects approximately 30 million men in the US alone. It's just the severity of their ED that varies.
Levitra is one of the most popular drugs prescribed for those with ED for them to enjoy their sex life like they used to however aside from Levitra, there are other remedies that one can take a look at.
For those who wouldn't want to take drugs or treatments that are not naturally occuring, there are a number of natural remedies you can use. The no.1 in the list is L-arginine. This amino acid helps in relaxing blood vessels, increasing blood flow along the way. Relaxation of muscles in the penis will allow men with ED to get an erection. This amino acid can be found in dairy, meat, fish, and poultry. L-arginine is in fact deemed as the naturally occurring sildenafil.
Although used as a natural remedy for a number of ailments, gingko is a particularly popular treatment for erectile dysfunction. Experts say however that the herb is most effective for men whose ED is an effect of taking antidepressant. In a study of 60 men with ED, it showed that gingko has 50% success rate.
Another natural remedy is Propionyl-L-Carnitine. According to a study, this naturally occurring chemical enhances the effectiveness of sildenafil - the generic drug for ED and is also a good supplement for men with diabetes who also suffer from erectile dysfunction. This amino acid is produced by the body. It is used for the treatment of intermittent claudication because of poor blood circulation and ipso facto also a very good alternative to improve blood circulation for those who have erectile dysfunction. Aside from ED, this amino acid is also used for the treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome, low testosterone levels, congestive heart failure, and atheorsclerosis.
Remember when your doctor told you that you need all types of vitamins i.e. from A to Zinc? Well you should take this seriously because a significant depletion of this mineral in the body can cause erectile dysfunction.
