Men's sexual health is much more than the potency or the erection itself. It also includes the interest, reaction, desire, and satisfaction in sexual intercourse. Potency is the body's ability to react sexually. On the other hand, an erection is a sign of normal, healthy potency. Certain natural nutrients can significantly improve men's sexual health.
PDE5 inhibitors prevent the reduction of cGMP levels and thus help you get and maintain an erection, and also increase the level of nitric oxide. Erectile functions may be improved by inhibiting the PDE5 enzyme, allowing an erection to persist. Natural interventions such as Kaempferia parviflora may also improve erectile function and male sexual health. Kaempferia parviflora increases levels of nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels and enables efficient blood flow. This is crucial for male sexual health. It improves the reaction time to erotic stimuli as well as improves satisfaction with sexual intercourse. L-arginine is an essential amino acid that plays a significant role in erectile function by helping form nitric oxide, a vasodilator. Supplementation with L-arginine has been shown to restore erectile quality and increase sexual satisfaction. Various forms of carnitine have a number of positive effects in men with low testosterone levels, including improvements in erection, orgasm, and overall sexual well-being.
Most testosterone circulating in the bloodstream is bound to either sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) (60%) or albumin (38%). Only a small fraction (2%) is unbound, or "free." Aging men experience both an increase in aromatase activity (conversion of testosterone into estrogen and increase in estrogen levels) and an elevation in SHBG production. The net result is an increase in the ratio of estrogen to testosterone and a decrease in total and free testosterone levels. Too high SHBG levels reduce the bioavailability of testosterone. Low testosterone levels can cause low libido, erectile dysfunction and infertility. Super Miraforte with Standardized Lignans can improve sexual performance in men with very low libido caused by decreased levels of free testosterone. The preparation protects against aromatase and the binding of free testosterone to SHBG. Quercetin inhibits aromatase, thereby inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. Zinc is essential for many aspects of male reproductive function, from testosterone metabolism to sperm motility. Zinc deficiency can cause lowered testosterone levels. Magnesium, on the other hand, protects testosterone from binding to SHBG, which increases the availability of free testosterone.
