              Viagra Alternatives: Which are the most effective?

 

Viagra alternatives: An introduction

Viagra alternatives usually are composed of herbs, nutritional supplements, amino acids, vitamins and hormones which have been found to facilitate and optimize sexual functioning. Many viagra alternatives have a long history of awareness of their effective aphrodisiac effects, and some have been used in various cultures throughout the world for many centuries. Some of the more effective viagra alternatives  include the following herbs and supplements:

Yohimbe:

Prior to the introduction and approval by the FDA of Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction, Yohimbe was recognized as probably the most effective of the herbal aphrodisiac’s. Yohimbe is an extract from the Yohimbe bark, originating from South Africa, and has become very popular for its ability to enhance erections and increase libido, and therefore, improving sexual performance. Yohimbe is the only herb that has FDA approval as a treatment for erectile dysfunctions. Various studies have reported success rates ranging from 14% to 85 %.

 

L-Arginine:

L-Arginine is an amino acid which has been found to improve the blood flow to the genital area causing erections to be harder, bigger, last longer and become more frequent. It also has been found to have a somewhat similar effect on women, resulting in increased blood flow to the clitoral and vaginal tissues, making them more sensitive and responsive to sexual stimulation.

Ginseng:

Ginseng is believed to assist in general health functioning in many ways including increasing general vitality, overcoming diseases and strengthening overall body functioning.

Cordyceps:

This nutritional supplement has been a primary ingredient in various Chinese herbal medicines for thousands of years. It first became famous for its powerful aphrodisiac properties. Research performed at the Medical University of China in Beijing and in Japan have shown a 64% success rate for men suffering from impotence, versus a 24% improvement in a comparative placebo group.

Gingko Biloba:

The beneficial effects of Gingko Biloba on the circulatory system is well-known and has had demonstrated a positive impact upon individuals suffering from sexual dysfunction.

Overall, many herbs are supposed to offer numerous benefits or to be aphrodisiacs, but it has been difficult to find research statistics to support their effectiveness in combating erectile dysfunction. However, these supplements and viagra alternatives appear to have more related research then most in relation to their effectiveness, or have a long-standing history of success in Chinese herbal medicine
