Did you know erectile dysfunction (ED) affects as many as 30 million men in the U.S.? ED is a situation in which men can’t sustain an erection long enough to perform sex. If you suffer from this you can see a doctor, or you can try some home remedies before consulting a medical professional.

Quit Smoking:

If you are a smoker and suffer from ED, try getting a nicotine supplement. Smoking can affect your ability to have and sustain an erection.

Lose Weight:

Having excess weight can worsen or cause erectile dysfunction.

Get Exercise, Daily:

Sexuality deals with the brain, nerves and muscles. Exercising can solve underlying problems that may help with sexual performance.

Communicate With Your Partner:

Lack of communication and misunderstandings with your partner can lead to impotence. Try couples counseling or various communication techniques with your partner to better understand your sexual relationship.

Understand Substance Abuse Issues:

Drinking too much or taking illegal drugs can vastly affect your overall health and body. If you suffer from addiction or substance abuse, consider counseling. Your body is interconnected and one thing may affect another. Understand yourself and seek resolutions.


Taking a supplement of this amino acid can help increase blood flow to the penis and the heart. While this supplement may not work like Viagra or other medications, it will increase nitric oxide which helps blood flow to the penis so you can sustain an erection.

Other studies have shown that acupuncture, zinc supplements or ginseng have been found to potentially help with ED. These aren’t proven studies, but have been thought to have a correlation with an improved sex drive.
