Natural Viagra Alternatives

Erectile dysfunction has long plagued the race of men as a common and inconvenient affliction – thus the need for Viagra arose. Despite the fact that many healthy men too use Viagra for recreational purposes, Viagra still remains true to its purpose of helping when help is needed. Yet, people are often found looking for a natural alternative for Viagra, and the question hangs, why?

One of the main reasons is because Viagra can come packaged with numerous side effects which make one wonder, why really Viagra has not been recalled from the market yet. Some of the most usual side effects seen associated with Viagra are Headaches, Flushing, Nasal congestion, Urinary tract infection, Diarrhea, Heartburn, Dizziness, Rash, Abnormal vision, color tinge, light sensitivity and blurred vision. Less usual but more potent side effects include Respiratory infection, Coughing, Bronchitis, Asthma (especially in victims who have never been afflicted with it before), Shock, Swelling of the face, Chills, nausea, fluctuating diabetes, Hypoglycemia, Arthritis, pain in the bones and joints, Weakened legs, fatigue, back pain, Vertigo, Depression, Conjunctivitis, swelling of the mammary glands, Abdominal cramps, Allergic reactions, penis injury, Rectal hemorrhaging, Fainting, High blood pressure and low blood pressure, Blood clots, weak bones, Tendon strains, excessive sweating, Skin ulcers, Loss of hearing, Cardiac arrest, Abnormal heart beat and bleeding in the lungs. It is needless to say that many of these conditions are life-threatening to the point that death cases have been confirmed.

Other than these clearly identifiable possible side effects, Viagra can also potentially increase several other risk factors. Most important of them are STD’s like HIV. Often it has been seen that youths face the risk of addiction and unnaturally forced erectile dysfunction where erections do not occur without the stimulation of Viagra. Viagra also incidentally lowers the sperm count of the ejaculations. Often it has been seen that the victims cannot even succeed in ejaculating. Viagra can also adversely affect the purposes of other medicines and tests. For example Viagra should never be consumed with other medicines whether counter medicines or prescription medicines. Also it can cause abnormalities in liver tests.

Other than these calculable side effects, viagra can also succeed in affecting the mood of the person, that too mostly by the occurrence of the side-effects.

All these reasons have persuaded people to opt for natural Viagra alternatives. Alternatives include herbal treatments, which not only have no side effects, but are generally cheaper as well. Many men have also reported a more positive affirmative in the case of an alternative when compared to Viagra. Drugs like Arginine, DHEA, Ginkgo Biloba and Yohimbe have given many men with erectile dysfunctions their hearts’ desires.

Arginine exists in the state of an amino acid and helps prevent erectile dysfunction by betterment of the blood flow. The optimum dosage for best results is one gram in every three days. DHEA is a hormone produced naturally in the body of men, and low levels of this hormone in the suggested person will most definitely call for additional supplements. This particular hormone assists the body in creating and maintaining the levels of testosterone and estrogen. Both these two hormones play pivotal roles in erection. Optimum dosage is five mg daily.

Ginkgo Biloba on the other hand is a certain type of herb that has always been favored as a memory booster but now it has been found that it can also assist with undoing sexual dysfunction in as much as 85% of men. The effects are further augmented by the combination of dosages of anti depressants with ginkgo biloba. Optimum dosages are three 80 mg tablets of ginkgo biloba per day.
