For many aging men, erectile dysfunction is a growing problem and can become a chronic problem.
This issue is often treated with drugs such as Viagra, Cialis or similar. These drugs work by relaxing the smooth muscles lining the arteries, that increases blood flow to the penis. But they also come with side effects such as skin flushing, visual disturbances, hearing loss and headache.
Male sexual health is about more than an erection. It also includes interest, response, desire and satisfaction.
Researchers have found a safer way to treat erectile dysfunction and improve overall sexual health: an extract of a ginger-like root called Kaempferia parviflora. Long used in South Asia to improve male sexual function, this plants extract gently support increased blood flow to the penis while also enhancing brain responses to sexual stimuli.
Unlike pharmaceuticals, Kaempferia parviflora also improve response time to erotic stimuli and intercourse satisfaction. Noticeable results have been shown in as few as 30 days.
Erectile dysfunction is an important early warning sign for underlying cardiovascular disease, because it is an indicator of the functioning of vascular and endothelial processes. As a side-benefit, this ginger-like extract may also help protect against arterial stiffening throughout the body. It promotes nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels and enables efficient blood flow.
