3 Key Nutrients for Treating Male Impotence 

erectile dysfunction

As men and women age, it’s not unusual for them to experience diminished sexual ability, even when the mood is right. For men, male impotence typically takes the form of erectile dysfunction (ED).

However, age is rarely the only reason for ED. Multiple physiological factors and underlying health conditions can contribute to impotence. It’s important to discuss these concerns with your doctor to help rule out other causes.

A holistic specialist in Cincinnati might recommend platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to address your ED or other conditions. You could also supplement your diet with nutrients that promote sexual response. For healthy individuals, three nutrients have shown great promise in treating sexual dysfunction for everyone, and not just for men:


L-arginine is an amino acid that precedes nitric oxide production. Nitric oxide improves circulation and blood flow, which in turn can help maintain erections. Ask your doctor before taking arginine.


Pycnogenol is a potent antioxidant derived from pine bark, and it helps increase nitric oxide levels. Pycnogenol combines with l-arginine to achieve a synergistic effect that enhances sexual response.

Horny Goat Weed

Horny goat weed is an herbal supplement containing the active compound icariin. It works much like an erectile dysfunction pharmaceutical but without possibly harmful side effects. More specifically, icariin blocks Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5), an erection-inhibiting compound occurring naturally in the body.
