What is erectile dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction refers to the inability for men to achieve or sustain an erection. It can be caused by physiological, psychological, or a mix of physiological and psychological matters. Some common causes of erectile dysfunction include:
- Poor blood circulation to the penis
- Problems with vein function in the penis
- Improper nerve function of the penis
- Lack of stimuli or poor stimuli from the brain
Statistics from the National Institutes of health show that approximately 5% of men who are age 40 suffer from erectile dysfunction on a long-term basis, and that the number is roughly 15% to 25% of men who are 65. Occasional issues with erectile dysfunction are more common and can affect men at any age group.
Why choose natural remedies over popular drugs like Viagra and Cialis?
While studies have shown that Viagra and Cialis are effective, it's always better for a person to achieve wellness on their own without the aid of synthesized medicines. There are many basic things that people can do to promote overall well-being that involves natural remedies. In fact, promoting overall wellness is usually the best way to combat issues with erectile dysfunction.
