To most men, being diagnosed as being impotent means failure, loss of masculinity and manhood. To them, knowing that they can not engage in satisfactory sex performance means loss of self esteem. This should not be the case. Like with any other medical condition, you can effectively manage your erectile dysfunction condition to continue to live a happy sex life, depending on the degree of your erectile difficulty.
One of the most effective remedies you can use in managing your erectile dysfunction condition is L-Arginine. L-Arginine is a group of amino acids that has the effect of enhancing level of nitric oxide in your body. Note that nitric oxide plays a very important role in your sex life; it makes it possible for blood vessels in your body including those in your penis to relax, which in effect leads to dilation of the blood vessels, which in turn encourages and enhances blood flow, leading to penile erection. Commonly used by athletes, L-Arginine is naturally found in such food stuffs as fish, chicken, walnuts and meat among other food stuffs.
The other very effective erectile dysfunction remedy you can use is Ginseng. However, not all Ginseng varieties are effective. Of North American, Asian, Korean and White Ginseng, the Korean Ginseng is the most preferred. Unlike the others that are considered to be mild, Korean Ginseng is red and very strong because of how it is prepared. It has been used for decades as sex function stimulant and an energy booster. It has proved to be very effective in enhancing flow of blood into the penile blood vessels, which in effect allows for strong and sustainable penile erection.
Zinc is no doubt one of the most important minerals that your body requires for different processes. Apart from its positive action in regulating actions of both hormones and enzymes, your body also requires zinc for enhanced immune system. Zinc also plays a very important role in enhancing serum testosterone level. Enhancing intake of zinc goes a long way in boosting your serum testosterone level, allowing for enhanced libido and penile erection. Apart from commercially sold zinc pills, the mineral is readily available in such food stuffs as meat, poultry, beans and oyster among other food stuffs.
Being obese or overweight is one of the causes of erectile dysfunction. You can indeed be diagnosed as being impotent simply because you are overweight. This is because excess fat in your body does not only narrow your blood vessels but convert testosterone to estrogen. Indeed most overweight men diagnosed as being impotent do regain their sexual function once they cut down on their weight. It may be very necessary that you engage in regular different exercises as one way of managing your condition.
These are no doubt just a few of the natural remedies you can use in managing your erectile dysfunction condition. There are certainly many others including herbs. It is however important to point out that being diagnosed as being impotent may be a sign of heart disease. It is therefore very important that you go for a comprehensive medical check up once diagnosed as having the condition to rule out heart disease.
