Of all the penis problems, a soft erection is probably the most feared by men - followed closely by going bald, of course. Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is a problem that can occur in men of all ages, but the prevalence certainly increases with age. Luckily, a man doesn’t have to sit around and watch his manhood fail; he can take some preventative measures to keep the penis healthy and kicking well into the future.

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is simply a fancy, medical term for an inability to achieve or keep an erection that is firm enough for sex. When it comes to a malfunctioning manhood, there is more than one possible reason that can lead to the condition. Any man struggling with a persistently limp dick - a one time thing could be a fluke - should be evaluated by a doctor. He can help determine the correct treatment options based on medical history and likely cause of the condition. Some possible reasons behind ED - both acute and chronic -- include:

  • Overconsumption of alcohol or recreational drugs
  • Side effects from prescription medications
  • Cardiovascular disease that causes poor blood flow to the penis
  • Chronic diseases (i.e. diabetes)
  • Just being too tired
  • Mental health issues (i.e. depression, anxiety, stress)
  • Other psychological issues (i.e. sexual shame, guilt, performance anxiety)

What are some treatment options?

Again, treatment will vary from man to man, depending on the cause of his particular ED. If the problem is caused by a medication side effect, simply switching to a new med may solve the problem, whereas if a psychological factor is at the root, he may need to work extensively with a therapist to work through his problem. Unfortunately, many men are embarrassed to speak with their doctors about ED so they may wait and suffer the consequences of a poor sex life before finally biting the bullet. Other treatment options may include prescription medications, hormone therapy (i.e. testosterone), or in some cases, surgery may be required to restore proper blood flow to the penis.

Are there any natural treatment options?

If a blood flow issue is at the root of an erectile dysfunction problem, one simple rule should be followed: If it’s good for the heart, it’s good for the penis. That means exercise, eating right, cutting out alcohol and not smoking will all improve one’s cardiovascular health - and therefore the blood flow to the penis. In many cases, lifestyle changes such as improving fitness, losing some weight, and keeping blood sugar in check - particularly for diabetics -- can drastically improve the functioning of the penis. Loading up on L-Arginine, an amino acid that promotes good penis health, can also help improve circulation. L-Arginine is a common nutrient found in many foods such as meat, poultry, dairy, nuts, veggies, and soybeans. Eating a balanced diet should afford most men the nutrients they need to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but for those looking for an added boost of penis health, a supplemental vitamin regimen may be added.

Using an all- natural penis vitamin cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) containing L-Arginine can help improve the health of the penis. When a vitamin lotion is applied topically, the nutrients are easily absorbed through the skin of the penis giving a man the most bang for his buck so to speak. L-Arginine improves circulation by dilating the blood vessels to allow for a greater engorgement of blood to the area - in fact - it is an ingredient found in some prescription erectile dysfunction medications. The delicate capillaries and blood vessels found in the penis are susceptible to being damaged during overly aggressive sex or masturbation, but L-Arginine can help heal them and restore much needed blood flow to the penis.
