What are the best herbal ED treatments?
Herbs and natural treatments for erectile dysfunction have been used in Eastern culture for many years. Unlike prescription medications used to treat erectile dysfunction, most herbs and supplements haven’t been well tested. Use caution when taking vitamins and herbs to treat erectile dysfunction, because some of them can interact with certain medications.
A few supplements seem to have positive results and are generally considered safe. The first is ginseng, which works by improving overall blood flow. Another is L-arginine, which can widen blood vessels and improve circulation. Ginko has the potential to increase blood flow to the penis, but it hasn’t been well studied. Beware of so-called “herbal Viagra” because these products can contain dangerous substances.
In general, prescription medications are the better choice for most men suffering from erectile dysfunction. Speak to your doctor about all your treatment options before taking any medication or herbal supplement.
