Herbs for Erectile Dysfunction, ED that work-
Arginine plays an important role in cell division. It can acts as a precursor for the Synthesis of nitric oxide. It enhances the action of nitric oxide which in turn relaxes the muscles surrounding blood vessels and those joining to the Penis. As a result, blood vessels in the Penis get dilated and hence the blood flow through it gets increased thus helping one maintain erection.
As soon as a person gets aroused sexually, his heart rate increases and blood is pumped to the penis and fills it. Nitric oxide is the key for an erection. If there is an insufficiency of nitric oxide, then that person will experience difficulty in having an erection. The other factors required are the sex hormone Testosterone, plenty of energy and a stress free mind.
L-Argine is an amino acid commonly sold in supplement form and obtained naturally in the diet. L-Argine rich foods include dairy products, meat fish and nuts. It relaxes the blood vessels. Sexual stimulation causes the brain to activate the release of Nitric Oxide from L-Arginine in the penis and clitoris. Nitric Oxide then promotes an increase in the molecule; Cyclic GMP (Cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate). Elevation of Cyclic GMP gives rise to the erection response.
The boost of Nitric oxide from L – Arginine is a safe and natural way to increase Cyclic GMP and Promote erection. Most ED drugs do not increase Cyclic GMP production. L-Arginine may give strength to heart and nerves.
