How Herbal Vitamins Can Help Men with Sex

According to Howard Sesso, ScD, MPH, the renowned Harvard Professor of Medicine, prostate cancer is not less of a risk to those men who religiously take non herbal vitamin C and E than those who don’t and in fact these non herbal vitamins do very little to improve both sexual and general health.

What’s the alternative?

Bearing in mind the comments made by Professor Sesso, it would appear that a man’s sexual health is better maintained through the use of herbal vitamins and supplements. There are numerous vitamins and supplements on the market, but here are a few which are said to be useful in the treatment of prostate problems, impotency and low libido.

The good alternatives

  • Ginseng is a very popular and well known herbal remedy, which is said to increase the level of testosterone in men, thereby, raising the sperm count, improving fertility and having a positive effect on low libido. It is also thought to cure impotence.

  • Rod Clover contains isoflavones which are involved in the regulation of hormones within the body, Rod Clover also has an antioxidant which reduces the risk of cancer of the prostate and controls hormone growth which can cause prostate problems. As well as improving a man’s sexual health this herb also helps psoriasis.

  • Muira Puama Is taken by many men as a tonic and is a great help to the nervous system. It is known to be an aphrodisiac, but it also acts as an anti-depressant, which has the knock on effect of increasing libido and preventing impotency. Another point in its favour is that it is also said to prevent hair loss.

  • Saw Palmetto This herb comes from a palm tree, which is found on the Atlantic seaboard and is popular as an inexpensive treatment for enlarged prostates. It is said to effect production of the hormones which cause the prostate to enlarge, which becomes more common after the age of 50.

  • Maca Is Peruvian ginseng and as well as being rich in fibre it is said to increase sex drive, stamina and give you more energy.

  • L’Arginine is an amino acid which can be taken in herbal tablet form. It boosts blood flow and heightens sexual stimulation.

  • Zinc- Men’s sperm need zinc to travel towards a woman’s egg and fertilise it, it is said to help impotence and improve sexual function.

  • Wild Oats -Strengthens muscles and is said to be a natural aphrodisiac.

  • Catuba – Treats nervousness and sexual weakness, it comes from Brazil and it is an aphrodisiac.

Each of these herbal remedies is safe to use and recently they have found to be more effective than ordinary vitamin supplements.
