Natural Remedy for Erectile Dysfunction

Updated on December 30, 2010

Tongkat Ali

This plant is found in the wild of Southeast Asia where it reaches about 12 meters high and was used traditionally to treat malaria and high blood pressure. The malays secretly use this plant to boost strength, increase stamina and improves immunity. Currently there is evidence that the plant can be used against lung and breast cancer. This could be attributed to the presence of phytochemicals called quassinoids and diterpenoids. It also contains an anti-oxidant called super oxide dismutase.The roots are harvested when it is 7 years old which is believe to be five times more potent than ginseng.

Male Erectile Dysfunction

Erectile dysfunction is common problem among aging males. About 40-70% of men ages 40-70 will have erectile dysfunction. This is common among men with heart disease, diabetes, and emotional problems. With advancing age, a 10% decline of available active testosterone occurs every 10 years and becomes three times lower by the 60th birthday. By 80 years old, the testosterone could have declined by as much as 50-70% relative to the level or amounts when males were 20 years old (andropause). This is due to testosterone bound in the blood stream and the progressive decline in testoterone production of cells in the testes.

However this does not mean that a large amount of testosterone is not present, it is, but it is not available. Most of the testosterone are bound in the blood stream and contributing to this is the fact that with age the testosterone produced by cells in the testis is also progressively declining. Tongkat ali is the natural supplement that has the property to effect a complete improvement in testosterone level. This improvement in testosterone is reported to be achieved in two weeks of intake; bringing the back “normal” level that has declined with age. These imply that tongkat ali acts naturally in the body and achieves a level of testosterone needed for a successful male sexual performance. For the men who are infertile due to problems with the quality of their sperm, Tongkat ali can raise the amount of available testosterone that will help in improve the morphology, activity (motility) and count of sperms.

Tongkat Ali is the herbal supplement that has a unique property to bring back to normal the testosterone level that has declined with age. Tongkat ali appears to stimulate the availability of natural testosterone which otherwise is not available as a result of advancing age. It can also help in male infertility problems; the morphology, activity (motility) and count of sperms improve with Tongkat Ali. Animal studies have shown that it can produce arousal, libido and sexual motivation. the overall effect of Tongkat Ali is gradual and safe.

Increase Penis Size

One of the known benefits of Tongkat Ali is it can improve muscle size and thus improving or increasing penis size naturally because of the influenced of the body's own testosterone.

      There's a new natural remedy for erectile dysfunction - Testofen. Clinical studies have proven that low testosterone is the cause of ED. Testofen boosts testosterone by almost 2 times.
