Natural remedies for ED are available a dime a dozen, but how many of these actually work? These 8 do!
Erectile dysfunction is a disorder that affects millions of men all over the world. Along with psychotherapy, drug therapy, vacuum devices and surgery, there are a few natural remedies that actually work and may be able to solve your ED symptoms without side effects. However, the market for home cures and natural remedies for ED is a big one, and often, the seemingly “natural” medications end up doing more harm than good. The trick is to sift through the remedies, and find the ones that actually work for ED and do not exacerbate matters.
Let’s take the guesswork out of it – here’s a list of 8 natural remedies for erectile dysfunction that are proven effective after years of research.
Panax ginseng or red ginseng is also known as “herbal Viagra”. This herbal natural remedy has years of proven research to back it up. The ginseng root is the part of the plant that is used to treat erectile dysfunction. The plant has to be grown for at least 5 years for it to reach its most effective form. The ginseng root has to be steamed and dried so as to use it in a supplement form.
According to the US National Library of Medicine National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), 7 studies that examined the impact of Korean red ginseng on erectile dysfunction were conducted in 2008. These studies checked the effects of red ginseng taken in dosages of 600 to 1000 mgs three times a day. The conclusion was a “suggestive evidence of red ginseng in the treatment of erectile dysfunction”. However, it is important that you procure this herbal remedy from an accredited source as the growing of the plant and making of the supplement has to be done under the right conditions for it to have an effect on your bedroom woes.
DHEA or dehydroepiandrosterone is an adrenal gland hormone that is naturally produced in the human body. This natural hormone then gets converted to estrogen or testosterone in the body. A reputed male aging study conducted in Massachusetts showed that men suffering from erectile dysfunction showed markedly lower levels of naturally occurring DHEA hormone. Post-study research and trials were conducted on 40 men with ED in 1999. According to this study, half the men were given a placebo once daily for 6 months, while the other half received 50 mg of the DHEA hormone. The study’s conclusion showed that the men receiving DHEA were significantly more likely to get and maintain an erection as compared to the placebo group. The dietary supplement of DHEA is synthesized from soy and wild yam.
