Erectile dysfunction can have a variety of causes. At its most basic level, erectile dysfunction occurs when blood is not able to flow into the penis in the necessary volume.
For this reason, taking care of your blood pressure and circulatory system as part of basic health is one of the first steps to maintaining complete sexual health. Sufficient sleep, water, and exercise are part of a lifestyle that will prevent circulatory problems. In addition, a diet high in organic fruits and vegetables, which includes healthy omega-3 oils and protein from nuts and legumes, will be of great benefit.
Supplements to take for the support of blood circulation include nattokinase, which prevents the hardening of blood vessels, and l-arginine, which promotes the production of nitric oxide, which contributes to the relaxation of artery walls.
Another potential cause of ED is hormone imbalance. All men should be regularly checked to make sure they have appropriate levels of testosterone, DHT, and estrogen, all of which are major factors in your sexual health.

But while we used to assume that problem was always related to heart and circulatory problems, medications or psychological issues…new research shows it may actually be genetic. And that means new treatments may soon be available to help more men.
If you’re struggling with ED, first understand that you’re not alone. I see hundreds of male patients with the same challenges. Although I know it’s embarrassing to talk about, my suggestion is that you visit your doctor and ask them to test you for two things: your heart function and your hormone levels. Erectile dysfunction can actually […]

If you’re a man over 40, it’s likely that you can’t do sexually what the younger you used to do. Frequent, spontaneous arousal and performance are not so frequent, less arousing, and less satisfying. If you’ve tried any of Big Pharma’s so-called solutions—Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, and so on—then you know they can come with a […]

Please continue reading to find out how you can have great sex at any age and how great sex can actually make you a stronger, healthier person.
