Erectile dysfunction or impotence is mainly characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis. Many plants are supposed to awaken sexual desire or help the physical side to achieve the expected performance. Gingko biloba, Asian and American ginseng, rhodiola, and maca are thought to stimulate pshychic However, with the exception of maca recognized by Health Canada to have certain effects on sexual well-being, Western science has never been able to demonstrate these facts. On the other hand, in Asian culture more than a hundred species of plants and also animal substances such as rhino horn and also velvet wood are widely accepted either as a mental sexual stimulant. But what about the physical side.
One of the reasons that is the cause of erectile dysfunction is poor peripheral circulation. You smoke, drink alcohol in a non-moderate way and do not exercise, there is a good chance that some of your problems find the source because these habits influence peripheral circulation. It’s pretty simple to understand. The penis and also the clitoris are equipped with a cavernous body that without blood pressure simply does not work. It is therefore first necessary to modify one’s lifestyle habits to increase one’s chances of having satisfying sexual relations.
The cavernous body and nitrates
The cavernous bodies of the penis and clitoris are a small spongy ball composed of very small nerves surrounded by blood vessels. In men, the cavernous body is located in the penis from its base (much like an inner tube). In women, it surrounds the clitoris. The achievement of an erection and optimal sensations in men but also in women allowing maximum sexual pleasure and the achievement of orgasm depend on its proper functioning. The cavernous body becomes active when, during periods of sexual arousal, it becomes engorged with blood. Its stimulation depends on the relaxation of the genital muscles. One of the particularly effective ways to allow it to function properly is nitric oxide. Nitric oxide (NO) and its metabolite cyclic GMP directly influences the erectile mechanism by causing the smooth muscles of the penis and also the clitoris to relax, which has the effect of facilitating the passage of blood thus causing their swelling. The more marked the presence of cGMP, the longer lasting and stronger the erection will be. In women the phenomenon is but less strong but similar. Some fruits and vegetables have a high concentration of nitrate. Beetroot is, after spinach, the food we consume with the highest concentration. Many are also found in watermelon, pomegranate, broccoli and raspberry.
