Here are powerful erection herbal remedies…
L-arginine is an amino acid found in foods such as meat, dairy products, poultry, and fish. Arginine appears to be safe at moderate doses of 2 to 3 g per day, although minor digestive distress can occur.
High doses of arginine may stimulate the body’s production of gastrin, a hormone that increases stomach acid. For this reason, arginine may be harmful to individuals with ulcers and people taking drugs that are hard on the stomach.
L-arginine may also alter potassium levels in the body, especially in people with severe liver disease. It is particularly a concern for people who take drugs that alter potassium levels such as potassium-sparing diuretics and ACE inhibitors.
In a double-blind clinical trial, 50 men with problems achieving an erection received either 5 g of L-arginine per day or placebo for 6 weeks. More men in the treated group experienced an improvement in sexual performance than the placebo.
The bark of the West African Yohimbe tree is a traditional aphrodisiac and the source of yohimbine, a prescription drug for impotence. Yohimbe stimulates blood flow to the penis. It has been shown to increase libido and decrease the period between ejaculations. Yohimbe may also have a positive effect on impotence problems caused by depression. Yohimbe is not recommended because it has a very narrow therapeutic index. There is a relatively small dosing range, below it, the herb does not work and above it, the herb is toxic. Side effects of normal dosages include dizziness, anxiety, hyperstimulation, and nausea. As little as 40 mg a day can cause a severe drop in blood pressure, abdominal pain, fatigue, hallucinations, and paralysis.
