Impotence, also called erectile dysfunction, is an inability for a man to maintain an erection. While there are medications prescribed by a doctor that are used to treat this condition, homeopathic remedies for impotence also exist.
Nutritional supplements such as arginine, bioflavonoids, zinc, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and flaxseed meal have all been shown to improve impotence.
Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that involves placing very fine needles into specific parts of the body. This treatment works by relieving stress, making it possible to receive an erection.
Some people believe that Asian ginseng and Ginkgo biloba can help a man with erectile dysfunction. Be sure to research herbal remedies and consult with a health care professional prior to taking them.
DHEA is a hormone that is produced by the human body and converted into the sex hormones, testosterone and estrogen. Few studies have been done on the use of DHEA in humans, and the long-term effects of this hormone are not yet known.
Eating healthy foods may help to improve impotence. Be sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and other healthy foods, and to drink an adequate amount of water.
You should always consult with a health care professional before starting a new supplement as there may be side effects or negative interactions with current medications you may be taking.
