Sometimes some jobs are best handled by a woman. In a recent issue of Prevention magazine, women are informed that their significant other's erectile dysfunction may require a helping hand from a concerned and caring partner who understands the causes and remedies for treating ED. One way a woman can help her man fix his erectile dysfunction is through four supermarket solutions that have been shown to help with ED.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common and disquieting condition that affects both a man and his partner. Erectile dysfunction is defined clinically as the inability to achieve and maintain a firm erection of the penis during and throughout sexual intercourse. The causes of erectile dysfunction are numerous and include some easy adjustments that can reboot a failing erection.
Some easy fixes include treating lagging testosterone levels with hormone therapy; making changes in prescription medicines that may be affecting the body’s ability to produce an erection; and, stopping smoking and eating better to give an erection a healthier life support system.
While many have found success in treating their ED with Viagra and Viagra-like medications, it does have its drawbacks such as lack of spontaneity. Many drugs that promote increased blood flow to the penis require 30 minutes to an hour before they can work their magic. Furthermore, some men are resistant to seeing their doctor about their erectile dysfunction and getting a prescription for the little blue pill some call “Vitamin V.”
However, this is not to say that women are helpless with a problem that is theirs too. According to health writer Beth Howard in the January issue of Prevention magazine, your supermarket and health food store also hold some treatments to help your significant other with his ED.
The following are four supermarket solutions for women to fix erectile dysfunction in their kitchen and their bedroom:
Pomegranate Juice and Pistachio Nuts
In a scientific study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research, scientists found that drinking pomegranate juice for 4 weeks improved the assessment scores of men with erectile dysfunction. Furthermore, Turkish researchers revealed their results that eating 3-1/2 ounces of pistachio nuts a day for 3 weeks led to improved sexual function in men with ED.
Prelox is a blend of L-Arginine and Pycnogenol—an extract from pine bark —that together has been shown to improve erectile function by stimulating circulation and blood flow to the penis as well as protect blood vessels from the damage that can occur from normal aging.
L-arginine is an amino acid that improves sexual function by increasing production of nitric oxide in men who have low levels of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide plays an important role in the sexual response by acting as a neurotransmitter and vasodilator that increases blood flow to the penis.
Research studies have shown that red ginseng is an effective herb toward treating erectile dysfunction. It works by relaxing muscles in the penis for improved blood flow needed to initiate and maintain an erection.
One last solution tip for women: Being too fit
If your man is already fit from eating right and getting plenty of exercise, but still suffers from ED or periodic episodes of erectile dysfunction, he may be too healthy. See how exercise of one type can cause a problem that women can solve toward a fix for erectile dysfunction.
