L-Arginine for the Treatment of Erectile Dysfunction
Arginine is a Natural Remedy for Erectile Dysfunction (ED) — which doctors define as the repeated inability to get or maintain an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
High doses of L-arginine can help improve sexual function, but only in men with abnormal nitric oxide metabolism, such as that associated with cardiovascular disease, as reported in a 1999 trial published in the online journal BJU International.
In another study, published in 2003 in the Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy, Bulgarian scientists reported that ED sufferers who took L-arginine along with the pine extract pycnogenol saw major improvements in sexual function with no side effects.
