Male Enhancement

Erectile dysfunction (ED) was recognised as a medical condition in 1983 and was followed 15 years later by the release of Viagra. A revolution in the pharmaceutical world, this infamous blue pill meant that a man could take control of his erectile problems and improve his sexual performance.

Viagra and other generic drugs have been shown to work well with most users by enhancing vasodilatation (dilation of blood vessels) and increasing erection strength, however, they do little to directly increase libido or sexual arousal. For this reason, many people prefer the use of a natural alternative to increase sensation and enhance their performance in the bedroom. Although some people may question the effect of such products there are numerous studies that show that the use of herbal aphrodisiac alternatives for the treatment of low libido has a significant effect on sexual pleasure, increased stamina, erection strength and performance.

One of main advantages to using a natural alternative is the significantly reduced risk of unpleasant side effects. Synthetic solutions for erectile dysfunction like Viagra, Levitra, Cialis etc. are known to have negative effects that include headache, flushes, nasal congestion, malaise, nausea, irregular heartbeat, changes in blood pressure, visual disturbances, chest pain and the list goes on….

Also of concern is the disturbing statistic where a recent study has found that up to half of the anti-impotence pills sold over the internet could be counterfeit, with many found to contain different components or a reduction in the active ingredient compared to original versions produced by the likes of Pfizer and other pharmaceutical giants. With unscrupulous vendors selling pills and potions that may not even contain Sildenafil, Tadalafil, Vardenafil or other well researched drugs, buying from such companies can be a dangerous game.

Natural Male Enhancement Alternatives

There are a number of herbal and natural Viagra alternatives that are considered to have aphrodisiac qualities and medical science has allowed for a greater understanding of human sexuality and the chemical processes that lead to arousal and excitement. This increase in understanding of the chemical composition and mechanisms within these natural alternatives has shown health benefits beyond increased erection strength and vasodilatation.

Some of the herbal extracts that have been claimed to increase libido include Ashwagandha, Catuaba, Epimedium, Krachai Dam, Maca, Passion Flower, Rhodiola, Shilajit and Tongkat Ali. Perhaps the most significant of these herbs are Tongkat Ali and Krachaidam. Both have been used for many years in Asia for their health benefits but have been unknown to the western world until recently. These herbs have a very high success rate among users when taken for their libido enhancing properties (as well as numerous other medicinal uses) and are seen as a safe alternative to synthetic or counterfeit drugs purchased online and in stores around the world.
