What’s the key to excellent erection health?
If there’s a single, foundational concept for good erection health, it’s good circulation. Drugs like Viagra and Cialis allow the smooth muscle cells lining the blood vessels to relax so that the blood vessels open up more. When sexual stimulation is added to better circulation to the penis, the result is a quicker, stronger erection. Medications like Viagra have been nothing short of miraculous for many men, yet their mechanism of action is profoundly simple. They block an enzyme called PDE-5, allowing more of a substance called cyclic AMP to circulate. More cyclic AMP means more accommodating blood vessels, so the stage is set for stronger erections.
Something many men don’t realize is that when they combine positive lifestyle changes with the use of prescription medications for erectile dysfunction, they can help the medications work better. In fact, some men may find that lifestyle changes alone can improve erection quality. And, positive lifestyle changes help your heart, lungs, and overall health in addition to helping with erections and helping keep your weight manageable.
