Erectile dysfunction (ED), otherwise called impotence, is a stigmatized men’s health problem. Many men suffer in silence or cope with it in several destructive ways. It is present in 1 in 4 men under the age of 40 years. Erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve an erection or maintain it sufficiently for better sexual performance. A study proposes that the incidence of male sexual dysfunctions has recently been higher. Have you wondered what made this massive shift? To put forth some stats, 50 percent of the men suffer from ED. The risk of the condition increases with age, but in recent times young men also experience ED. Though we are advancing in many arenas and becoming vocal about several issues, sexual health and its problems are still considered taboo, especially for men. This article will provide you with information about erectile dysfunction and encourage you to have open communication with your physician.

What is erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is a common sexual disorder in which it is difficult to present a firm erection and maintain it for enough time. Men do experience some problems with erections occasionally. Perhaps, if it happens most of the time and gets in the way of your sex life, then definitely a medical examination is required. It is a treatable condition with proper diagnosis and treatment. Erection is caused by the balance in the blood flow in and out of the penis. Any underlying disease or issue that causes the imbalance in blood flow to the penis will end up in erectile dysfunction.

Causes of erectile dysfunction:

Several factors cause this condition. Some are reversible, and others are treatable. The physical and mental factors include improper nutrition, smoking, alcohol consumption, metabolic disorders like obesity, atherosclerosis, diabetes mellitus, sleep disorders, stress, anxiety, and hormonal imbalance (low testosterone). Proper diagnosis requires a thorough and detailed history and examination. Understanding the root cause of the condition helps treat the disorder more effectively. Apart from this, we must also check if there is any injury to the nerve supplying the part.

Symptoms of erectile dysfunction:

As mentioned earlier, ED results in difficulty in erection and sustaining the erection. Along with this, a person may also have symptoms like libido (reduced sexual desire). Frustration and distress are also common that further worsen the condition.

What is the best herb for erectile dysfunction?

There is an array of treatments available for erectile dysfunction. When we find the actual cause, choosing the relevant remedy becomes a piece of cake. The first step in treating ED is to make lifestyle changes, adopting poor nutrition and exercise. There are also herbal remedies that make wonder in treating the condition. The question that invariably pops up in people’s mind is, how to choose the right herb? Which is the best herb?

Here is the best and predominantly used herb for treating erectile dysfunction, “SAFED MUSLI.”

This plant possesses many health benefits and properties. It curbs inflammation, lowers cholesterol, and acts as an antioxidant. Above all, it has been used to treat male dysfunction like impotence, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation. An aqueous extract from the root of this herb in a sufficient quantity acts as an aphrodisiac, a substance that increases sexual desire and sexual pleasure. The effects are attributable to the improvement in levels of the testosterone hormone.
