More than 30 million men in the world suffer from impotence, the inability to attain and/or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance. In addition to the medical implications associated with the condition, it also presents a significant negative impact on self-esteem for most men. Impotence can also place strain on a relationship, sometimes leading to a split, because of the emotional tension and lack of healthy communication about the problem.

Why Herbal?

There are a number of prescription drugs available for the treatment of impotence but more men are now turning to herbal remedies. The factors contributing to this shift from prescription medications to natural supplements include the following:
• The cost of prescription drugs continues to soar while many insurance plans reduce coverage.
• There are a number of undesirable side effects associated with the prescription drugs used to treat impotence. Side effects can include headache, dizziness, gastrointestinal issues and difficult/painful urination.
• Herbal products also contain ingredients that contribute to overall health and wellness, including cardiovascular strength, unlike their prescription counterparts.
• There is an increased understanding of the effectiveness of herbal treatments. Even medical doctors, typically resistant to herbal and naturopathic healing, now endorse natural formulas for male impotence and sexual enhancement.

Common Ingredients

High quality herbal supplements contain a number of natural ingredients that have proven success in increasing libido, empowering sexual drive and function, and creating greater stamina and erection hardness. Common ingredients include horny goat weed, tribulus, L-arginine, garlic and mucuna pruriens. In addition to these ingredients, many supplements also include ingredients, such as antioxidants and amino acids, that contribute to overall health.

When searching for an herbal supplement, it is important to review and research the ingredients as not all products on the market are actually proven to have a positive effect on impotence. Be aware of potentially dangerous ingredients that are listed by the FDA as "Ingredients of Concern" and, when possible, purchase products that are guaranteed.
