Nature has from time immemorial provided humankind with remedies for various ailments and erectile dysfunction is no exception. Some men with erectile dysfunction problem resort to such remedies to manage the problem. Interestingly, even some men who do not suffer from erectile dysfunction make use of the remedies not necessarily to treat or manage erectile dysfunction but to improve their sexual performance. Because of their popularity, supplements for ED are now commercially available from drug stores and other outlets in form of capsules, pills and tablets.
DHEA is a hormone that is produced naturally by the body’s adrenal glands. It is changed by the body into androstenedione hormone, which is the basis for both female and male hormones. In men, secretion of DHEA is in the testes. Because DHEA produced by the body may not be sufficient, commercially manufactured DHEA is widely available in the market. This is made from chemicals found in soy and yams. Regularly used in managing osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis, depression and chronic fatigue among other health conditions, DHEA is now widely used by men declared impotent by their physicians to improve their sexual performance. DHEA is also used by women in need of cutting down on their weight and those in need of strengthening their vaginal wall.
Panax ginseng that is now commercially available as a supplement is one of the widely used plants in treating many ailments and health conditions including depression, chronic fatigue, lung disease, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, lung cancer, skin cancer, diabetes, anaemia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The plant should not be confused with such others as American and Siberian ginseng. It is a supplement that is now widely used by men declared as being impotent to improve on their sexual health.
L-arginine is an amino acid that is naturally manufactured by the body from food eaten. It is also commercially manufactured from such food stuffs as red meat, fish, poultry and dairy products. When ingested, it is converted by the body into nitric oxide, which is very necessary for opening of blood vessels for smooth blood flow. L-arginine is commonly used in treating such conditions as congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, male infertility and erectile dysfunction.
Melanotan-II should not be confused with melatonin. Just like with melatonin, Melanotan-II is a commercially manufactured hormone similar to melanoncyte, a stimulating hormone produced by the body that enhances production of skin-darkening pigments. Melanotan-II is given as a shot under the skin and is very effective in tanning the skin and in stimulating erection.
Although readily available as over-the-counter medications, use of these supplements by impotent men requires due diligence. This is particularly very important for anyone taking other conventional medications. To prevent any negative side effects and adverse health complications, it is always recommended that any man diagnosed as being impotent consults his physician before using the supplements.
Even with physician consultation, where one buys the supplements is very critical. This is because not all supplements are of the same kind. For instance, there are supplements promoted as containing DHEA when such is not true. Men in need of using these supplements are obligated to buy from reputable stores, whether local or online.
