Modelled supplements for erectile dysfunction

Conventional Beliefs

  1. L-Arginine: L-arginine is an amino acid that the body converts to nitric oxide, which helps relax blood vessels, potentially improving blood flow. Some studies suggest that L-arginine supplements might have a modest effect on erectile function by enhancing nitric oxide production.

  2. Ginseng: Panax ginseng, also known as Korean ginseng, has been traditionally used to enhance sexual function. Some studies suggest that ginseng might have potential benefits in improving erectile function, but more research is needed to confirm its effectiveness.

  3. Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium): This herb has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for sexual enhancement. Some studies have shown promising results regarding its potential effects on erectile function, but more research is needed.

  4. Zinc: Adequate levels of zinc are important for sexual health. Zinc supplements might be beneficial for individuals with zinc deficiency, as low zinc levels have been linked to reduced testosterone levels, which can impact sexual function.

  5. Probiotics: There is limited evidence linking probiotics directly to improving erectile function. However, maintaining overall gut health may indirectly impact various aspects of health, including sexual health.
