A Nutritional Approach to Erectile Dysfunction (ED)
- What goes down can come up
Experts have estimated that erectile dysfunction (ED) affects 30 million men in the United States. The National Institutes of Health estimate that approximately 5% of men 40-years-old and between 15% and 25% of 65-year-olds have ED. There are many causes for erectile dysfunction. One of the primary factors in America is too much sugar and refined carbohydrates (donuts, cookies, candy, etc.) in the diet. Sugar increases insulin which in turn lowers testosterone levels.
Other factors include aging, high blood pressure, stress and anxiety, diabetes mellitus, smoking, atherosclerosis (clogged arteries), depression, nerve or spinal cord damage, medication side effects (specially the antidepressants), alcoholism or other substance abuse, hypothyroidism, and low testosterone levels. Those men who take Melatonin to aid in sleep problems have the potential of having a low libido and ED.
Erectile dysfunction is treatable in all age groups. The first step is to clean up one's diet and dramatically reduce intake of sugar, white flour and processed foods. Other steps include a good exercise program, psychotherapy, adopting a healthy lifestyle, oral PDE5 drug inhibitors (Viagra, Levitra, Cialis, Stendra, and Staxyn) or natural inhibitors like Pycnogenol, L-Arginine and Icariin (found in the herb Horny Goat Weed). Other symptomatic treatments include intraurethral medications (MUSE), intracavernosal injections, vacuum devices, and surgery. The aforementioned approaches unfortunately only address the symptom and not the underlying cause(s). It is this author's intention to wake up the male population to underlying causes. Not changing one's life style will reduce your chances of correcting your ED problem and also assist shortening your visit on planet earth.
Of key interest in the ED equation is the underlying mechanism preventing a sustained erection. There is a protein enzyme known as phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5), which causes the erection to subside. Drugs like Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Staxyn, and Stendra work similarly by blocking this protein enzyme phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE5). If there is plaque build up in the penile arteries these drugs offer no long term benefit. The reason for this is that the endothelial cells lining the arteries are under the plaque and cannot release nitric oxide synthase, an enzyme that catalyzes the production of nitric oxide from L-Arginine. Nitric oxide functions to relax the smooth muscle in the artery and allows,more blood to flow in to the penis.
Although there are no quick fixes, a more natural solution to the ED problem does exist. Males with an ED problem must dramatically reduce sugar and refined carbohydrate intake. Second, ED sufferers can seek out an herbal vitamin solution. Specific herbs and vitamins have a physiologic action on the body. There are three steps to start the reversal process. First, natural (food based) vitamin C (3 to 10g per day in divided doses), Proline (250 - 2,000mg daily) and and Lysine (3 to 6 g daily) are needed to help produce collagen for repair of artery walls; specifically Lysine aids in dissolving away arterial plaque. Second, start taking Pycnogenol (300mg daily) to stimulate nitric oxide production. Third, Take L-Arginine (2 - 3 grams daily) to complement the Pycnogenol and Icariin (present in the herb Horny Goat Weed) to inhibit the production of phosphodiesterase-5 (erection killer). The International Center For Nutritional Research has just developed an herbal/vitamin formula with a twist. With innovative technology, a proprietary blend of known ED supportive nutrients is now available in a liquid spray. Using high tech equipment the frequencies of the effective herbs and vitamins have been imprinted into a liquid. In essence the frequencies of these ingredients have been vibrationally infused into a base liquid to complete the formulation. The recommended dosage is 15 sprays directly into the mouth three times a day to be taken away from food. This innovative delivery system is convenient and gets absorbed quickly into the bloodstream through the mucous membranes of the mouth. The International Center For Nutritional Research believes this innovative technology is the path of the future.
