5 Natural Alternatives to Viagra

  • Ginkgo Biloba

    Since Viagra hit the shelves in 1998, men suffering from erectile dysfunction have gladly consumed the drug. But Viagra, like any commercial drug, has a warning label. Fortunately, Mother Earth can help her sons with their sexual disappointments with herbal therapies for the disorder.

  • Ginkgo Biloba seeds

    Ginkgo Biloba is the national tree of China, and is also grown in Korea and Japan. Its 1500 year history has found it many purposes, including revered status in the Buddhist community. The ginkgo biloba tree was the only plant to have survived the Hiroshima bombing.

    The strength of the tree is further emphasized by its many uses. Ginkgo nuts are frequently eaten, and thought to be an aphrodisiac. Ginkgo leaves are consumed as a memory enhancer. Ginkgo is particularly effective in improving the sexual functions of men because it increases blood and oxygen flow to the brain and throughout the body. Better circulation means blood pumps to the more sexually significant parts of the male anatomy.

  • Ginkgo Biloba leaf

    Arginine is an amino acid naturally produced by the human body and can be found in various dairy sources, poultry, seafood, nuts and seeds. Arginine is particularly useful in immune system functions, cell division and releasing hormones. When taken in conjunction with yohimbine, arginine is effective in mitigating the frustrating effects of erectile dysfunction. Yohimbine is an alkaloid aphrodisiac that can also help with orgasmic dysfunction in men.

  • DHEA pills

    DHEA is a steroid produced by the adrenal glands that helps the body produce testosterone. Particularly for those over the age of 65, DHEA has been effective in increasing male hormone levels. A 5mg supplement of DHEA a day can achieve the desired results, but don’t get too hooked – it may be classified as a controlled substance before long.

  • Muira Puama plant

    An ancient Amazonian herb, Muira Puama is well known as a botanical booster for energy and health. Muira Puama is recreationally most often used to increase sexual desire and has been shown to improve symptoms of erectile dysfunction – giving it the nickname ‘potency wood.’ Unlike many herbs and drugs, Muira Puama has no known negative side effects.

  • Ginkgo Biloba bark

    This little tour of natural, er, enhancers just goes to show that you don’t need to bother with those spam emails in your inbox. Nature has all the rocket fuel you’ll ever need…
