Nitric oxide is critical for men to achieve an erection. While many people think its a lack of testosterone its not they need more nitric oxide.
Nitric oxide is produced naturally by the body but levels can dip (with age for example) and all you need to do is get the levels back up to increase libido.
Here are some natural ways to increase it and increase libido.
Many men who turn to drugs such as Viagra to cure impotence or try and increase testosterone should look at nitric oxide first.
Peak Sexual performance
In men is a combination of desire in the mind and the ability to transmit this to get an erection.
If you don’t get enough nitric oxide you will not be able to get an erection.
Nitric Oxides Role
The erection process begins with sensory stimulation in the brain and these impulses are transmitted to the nervous system and trigger the release of nitric oxide.
The net affect of this is the penis muscles relax, allowing blood to flow into the spongy tissue and create an erection.
Nitric Oxide declines naturally with age.
Men getting older need to boost their levels of nitric oxide to keep their sex drive alive.
Problems can be physical problems like hardening of the arteries which restricts the flow of blood flow into the penis which for example is common in smokers.
Nitric oxide is produced and one area is the walls of the arteries.
Arteriosclerosis (plaque in the arteries) interrupts the production of nitric oxide and can also prevent the flow of blood especially to the pelvic region and penis.
There are several natural supplements that are proven to help with the production of Nitric Oxide and which help the blood flow better and they are:
L-Arginine, Gingko Biloba and Ginseng
All are safe to take and do not need a prescription and are described more fully in our other articles with other ways to increase this critical element in the erection process.
Nitric oxide is critical for peak sexual performance and if you don’t get enough the simple fact is you won’t get an erection.
If you are suffering from erection problems then try increasing nitric oxide levels first before turning to prescription drugs
