Erectile Dysfunction

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.
