Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a devastating condition that impacts many men. It can occur for a variety of reasons. Often a physician will work to treat the underlying condition to improve the condition. However, in some cases, there is no direct cause of ED. In such situations, you can either try prescription ED meds or pick natural treatments.
Erectile dysfunction (impotency) refers to a man’s inability to achieve an erection or maintain a firm phallus for any length of time.
Symptoms of ED include reduced or no libido. Often the condition can last for weeks or months. Over 30 million men in the U.S. alone are afflicted with ED.
Typical treatment for ED includes various prescription medications, implants, surgery, and vacuum pumps. All treatments have varying degrees of success and also have certain side effects that some men find unpleasant. Many men opt to pursue natural treatments for erectile dysfunction.
Many call Panax ginseng a herbal Viagra. The herb, often referred to as red ginseng, has been reviewed by researches around the world. It has been found that dosages of 600 to 1,000 milligrams three times per day helps erectile dysfunction.
The conclusion of the studies is as follows: “suggestive evidence for the effectiveness of red ginseng in the treatment of erectile dysfunction.”
Red ginseng appears to have an interesting impact on ED. Ginsenosides are an element that occurs naturally in the plant and works on a cellular level to treat ED. In fact, red ginseng might prove more effective than prescription medications in some men.
Men who respond to red ginseng appear to be those with high lipids in their blood or who have metabolic syndrome. The herb has impressive anti-inflammatory actions and improves blood flow. It also appears to impact lung function.
Studies indicate that Rhodiola rosea holds a great deal of promise in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. One study found that 26 men out of 35 who were given 150 to 200 mg of the herb per day for three months experienced improved erections. They also reported feeling more energetic and had less fatigue. Clearly more studies are needed.
