Maca contains a number of natural aphrodisiacs, which have been known for many years by the amazonas jungle natives for their ability to increase sexual desire and performance.

Possible Side Effects
Maca should not be consumed near bed time since it could cause insomnia.

L-Arginine For Erections

Written by Hard on October 27, 2010

L-Arginine is used to make the nitric oxide, a compound in the body that relaxes blood vessels. Preliminary studies have found that L-arginine may help with conditions that improve when blood vessels are relaxed (called vasodilation), such as atherosclerosis, erectile dysfunction, and intermittent claudication.

L-Arginine produces a natural growth hormone, thus helping to increase the erect size of the erectile tissue in the penis. It has also been successful in improving fertility in men by increasing low sperm count and motility.

L-arginine has been used for erectile dysfunction. Like the drug sildenafil citrate (Viagra), L-arginine is thought to enhance the action of nitric oxide, which relaxes muscles surrounding blood vessels supplying the penis. As a result, blood vessels in the penis dilate, increasing blood flow, which helps maintain an erection. The difference in how they work is that Viagra blocks an enzyme called PDE5 which destroys nitric oxide and L-arginine is used to make nitric oxide.

In one study, 50 men with erectile dysfunction took either 5 grams of L-arginine per day or a placebo. After six weeks, more men in the L-arginine group had an improvement compared to those taking the placebo.

Possible Side Effects
L-arginine may affect blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Therefore, if you have a history of heart disease or diabetes you should not use this supplement without supervision from a doctor.

Cnidium Monnier For Erections

Written by Hard on October 27, 2010

Other names: Monnier’s Snowparsley, She Chuang Zi, Conidium Fruit

Cnidium Monnier is derived from the Chinese plant Cnidium Monnieri. Its seeds are used for a variety of applications in traditional Chinese medicine. You can find the seeds in bulk in most Chinese pharmacies and health food stores.

Used to increase fertility in men and some astringent quality, which means that it will help prevent premature ejaculation and allow erections to be maintained for longer periods of time.

Cnidium Monnier is a Nitric Oxide booster. Not only does it trigger the release of Nitric Oxide but also effectively inhibits PDE-5 (Phosphodiesterase-V, an enzyme that kills an erection) activity. Inhibiting the release of PDE-5 means having an erection longer.

Niacin For Erections

Written by Hard on October 27, 2010

Niacin is a type of B vitamin. It is water-soluble, which means it is not stored in the body. Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water. Leftover amounts of the vitamin leave the body through the urine. That means you need a continuous supply of such vitamins in your diet.

Niacin opens blood vessels wider. Niacin is critical to energy production and proper circulation for long lasting erections. Niacin also has the ability to increase sensation all over the body, thus it plays an important role in heightening the total physical experience during sexual intercourse.

The Niacin “Flush”
It’s important to note that niacin flush is not harmful or dangerous. Some people worry about it, but it is actually a sign of improved blood flow.

When you get the niacin flush, it’s an indication that the niacin is causing small blood vessels in your body to be expanded in size. This is a tremendous increase in blood flow.

You experience a flushing of the skin, simply because there is more blood close to the surface of the body. As the blood flows in these areas, the cells of the small capilaries will also be getting rid of their waste products, and often they produce histamine as part of this process. That histamine is another natural substance produced by every cell in the body when eliminating toxins. Histamine causes an itchy feeling.
