Male enhancement is a hot item in the media and medical world. More and more men with sexual dysfunction problems are seeking medical advice to remedy it. While doctors tend to offer various drugs as treatment options, these drugs also have serious side effects, including blindness. For a more natural solution--and one free of side effects--consider the following home remedies for optimal male enhancement and performance.
Ginkgo biloba is an herb with the ability to increase circulation. Its benefits for patients have included memory improvement, reduction in heart disease, and recently, fertility assistance. In a study published by the British Journal of Pharmacology, it was found that men who took 60 mg. of Ginkgo biloba each day showed drastic enhancement improvements after six months.
One warning however, is that those with blood clotting issues or that are on anticoagulant medication should not use Ginkgo as it can impact the body's ability to stop bleeding in case of an emergency, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Dehydroepiandrosterone or DHEA is an essential protein for the male body to create testosterone. Testosterone is one of the primary contributing hormones for healthy male sexuality. Men who took DHEA supplements showed fuller, larger erections as well as improved levels of, levels of PSA, prolactin and testosterone in a study conducted by the University of Vienna.
L-arginine is a natural amino acid that scientists can extract and concentrate from sources such as red meat. Eighty percent of men (out of 40, age group 25 to 45) with erectile dysfunction treated with L-arginine (dosage: 1.7 g/ day) and Pycnogenol, an extract from French maritime pine bark (Pinus pinaster), (dosage: 80 mg/day) recovered from their erectile dysfunction after one month of treatment. In the study by The Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, the patients also were given Pycnogenol, an antioxidant that enhances the absorption of L-arginine.
The ultimate means for achieving male enhancement is ironically enough, the only method that is completely free. A healthy lifestyle free for smoking, alcohol, caffeine and processed foods and rich in exercise and intercourse is guaranteed to improve overall performance. Caffeine is an instant male enhancement killer states Mark H. Cline, Ph.D., a psychologist and researcher at the Male Health Center in Dallas. He found that caffeine releases adrenaline, which shuts off blood flow to the penis.
Smoking also promotes impotence, says Sheldon Burman, M.D., founder and director of the Male Sexual Dysfunction Institute in Chicago. Quit smoking to avoid the early onset of impotence or help reverse it. Smoking is harmful because it restricts circulation and blood supply, and since less blood reaches the penis it is more difficult to get an erection.
