ED - erectile dysfunctionErectile dysfunction affects men from all backgrounds and the condition fuels a billion dollar blue pill industry.  Many have searched long and hard (pun intended) for a natural cure for ED but so far, efforts have been deflating (I’ve got a million of them, folks).

Although my professional practice revolves around helping men (and women) optimize their fertility in an effort to start a family, I sometimes come across related information which I just have to share.

Let me first make a distinction, I am not talking about the ridiculous “Male Enhancement” pills you see all over the internet.  The marketing of these pills draws you in with the promise that the pills will make you “longer” or “bigger” or to produce more “volume”. 

Pure hooey….mostly.

I say “mostly” because the ingredients are often things which actually have some validity; whether they be traditional herbs used for impotence (most of the ingredients are traditional Chinese herbs for impotence) or the ingredients are from current nutritional supplements which have been researched on their effects on issues such as erectile dysfunction. 

Herbs such as horny goat weed, tribulus, he shou wu and ginseng are common ingredients in these “male enhancement” pills but the thing that makes these products “hooey” are the dosages…there is just not enough of the active ingredients to make any significant changes. 

One common nutritional supplement you will often see in these pills which has actually been researched on its ability to encourage blood flow to the penis is L-Arginine.  Basically put, L-Arginine plays a role in nitric oxide (NO) which opens up blood vessels and improves blood flow…good stuff if you have lack of blood flow like with erectile dysfunction. 

However, the erectile dysfunction treatment you HAVEN’T tried yet is something called L-Citrulline.  When L-Citrulline is consumed, it eventually breaks down to L-Arginine.  So supplementing with L-Citrulline provides you with L-Arginine.

Why does this matter?  Why can’t I just take L-Arginine?

You still can, but when we consume L-Arginine, much of its blood dilating properties are rendered useless by the process of digestion.  L-Citrulline, on the other hand, is metabolized differently which allows much more L-Arginine to be available for use…making L-Citrulline a much better choice to improve blood flow and a much better choice when trying to improve your erectile dysfunction.

So how much should you take?

The dosage for L-Citrulline is around 1500mg – 3000mg per day.  High doses have been tested on humans with no side effects but more isn’t always necessary.

How long do I need to take it?

Some claim that results are quick but I encourage you to take the L-Citrulline for at least a month before you decide if it is working or not.  Take it everyday!  Not just once in a while; consistency is key.

Where can I find L-Citrulline?

To find an L-Citrulline product from a reputable company which can be delivered just about anywhere in the world, click here.   I like this brand because it is a higher dose than the average so you only have to take 2 pills per day.  Easy peasy!

The Bottom Line

If you are suffering from mild erectile dysfunction, before you jump to the little blue pill, consider trying some of these natural methods first.  Also, you should always check in with your family doctor to ensure some other health condition isn’t contributing to your ED.  You likely need a check up anyway so go see your doctor!
