Male Sexual Herbs
These Chinese herbs have been used for thousands of years to increase male libido.
They are reputed to improve your overall health.
Please read my caveat and recommendations at the bottom of this page before you act.
Horny Goat Weed
It increases the levels of nitric oxide which is essential to achieve an erection.
Erection starts with sensory stimulation in the brain then the impulses from the brain trigger the release of nitric oxide.
This in turn causes the muscles of the penis to relax and blood flows to the tissue to cause an erection.
Nitric Oxide declines with age and many men just need to boost their levels of nitric oxide.
Ginseng has long been acknowledged as good for increasing energy, stamina, alertness and libido.
It is an adaptogen and helps with physical or emotional stress and fatigue which are major passion killers.
It normalises hormone imbalances, boosts your metabolic rate and improves blood flow to the genitals, thereby improving male sexual performance.
It is also reputed to increase nitric oxide levels and has the same effect as the Horny Goat Weed.
Gingko improves blood flow around the body.
It improves blood flow to the brain, thus improving concentration and improving memory.
It helps blood flow to the extremities of the body including the genitals and acts as an anti-oxidant in the body.
It treats peripheral vascular diseases which can impede the flow of blood around the body, including the genitals.
In most cases of reduced libido, impotence and erectile dysfunction, it is poor circulation and lack of nitric oxide as the root cause.
These herbs will assist in improving those problems and so your libido and ability to obtain an erection should return.
These are all ancient 'remedies' which could have other benefits - all three are well tried ancient Chinese herbs and many people feel they benefit positively from them, but some people say they make no difference that they can feel.
If you are seeking help with this (or any medical) problem, then my best advice is to consult a qualified Herbal Medicine Practitioner - don't be embarrassed as it's a common problem. Don't seek 'remedies' on the internet. There is a big difference between 'remedy' and 'medicine'.
A Herbalist will take a full history and prescribe a combination which is right for you - the science behind it is called 'Energetics' and it takes three things, you the patient, the condition and the qualities of the herbs, to arrive at the right treatment for you.
Think of it like 'first aid' which you would use for a cold, cough or cut finger and 'treatment' which you would consult a doctor for.
Remedy v Medicine - that's the difference.
