This powerful, natural arsenal combats impotence, slow sexual response, lack of desire, inability to have orgasms, and many other common sexual dysfunctions.
It's the disorder no one wants to talk about, yet nearly everyone will experience at one time or another during their life.
Sexual dysfunction refers to a variety of ailments including "lack of sexual desire, difficulty becoming aroused, inability to achieve orgasm, erection problems in men, lubrication problems in women and pain during intercourse."1 Untreated, sexual dysfunction can have devastating effects on self-esteem, health, marriage, career and friendships.
The New York Times reports, "an estimated 30 million men suffer at one time or another from some degree of male erectile dysfunction, [yet] only 2.76 million visited doctors last year with the complaint."2
Sexual dysfunction is even more common among women. A recent University of Chicago study found that 43% of women surveyed reported sexual problems associated with stress.3
Not only is sexual dysfunction far more widespread than previously thought, in our modern, overworked world, it is also growing rapidly, and now even affects some men and women in their late teens. That's the bad news.
The good news is that thanks to recent advances in nutrition and medical science, many if not most cases of sexual dysfunction can either be greatly improved or cured entirely — without dangerous drugs, surgery or other invasive techniques. Further, with modern Prosexual vitamins and nutrients, dramatic improvement — up to and including elimination of sexual problems — can occur in as little as a few weeks or even days, without the high costs of surgery or prescription drugs.
Causes of sexual dysfunction
Sexual dysfunction is not a single malady but rather a number of different maladies, so there is no single cause but rather a constellation of causes. Causes include:
- Lack of Sleep
- Poor Health
- Bad Nutrition
- Prescription Drugs
- Poor Diet
- Hormone Inbalances
The two biggest mistakes most people make in dealing with sexual dysfunction
The first mistake is assuming that your sexual problems are unique or unusual. As the studies cited above demonstrate, sexual problems are far, far more widespread than even medical professionals previously realized. Yet the vast majority of people suffering from them do nothing to treat them and in many cases won't even talk about them.
The second mistake is believing that greatly reduced sexual drive and ability is a natural result of getting older. In fact, prosexual vitamins and nutrients can maintain a high sex drive and ability at almost any age.
Why do so many people do nothing about sexual problems? Perhaps it's a vestige of our Puritan heritage, which equated pleasurable sex with sin. Or maybe it's our sex-obsessed culture, which makes us ashamed to admit we don't have the sexual energy and interest we once did.
Whatever the cause, ignoring or doing nothing about sexual dysfunction greatly diminishes your quality of life and may lead to many other problems.
Sex and health
Sexual health is inseparable from your overall health. If you improve your general state of health, you will improve your sex function. At the same time, enhancing sexual vitality and improving your sex life has a positive impact on your overall health.
Sex has many beneficial physical effects, including improved blood flow and the release of male and female hormones which improve overall health. The pleasure sex affords, makes most people much more happy with their lives and thereby contributes to high self-esteem and a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment.
Sex also performs the vital sociological function of creating a strong-bond between partners, leading to lasting relationships, marriage and a stable home for children.
Conversely, lack of sex, and inability to perform and enjoy sex is a causative factor in many psychological disorders, and a contributory factor in many physical disorders.
Treating sexual dysfunctions with
During the last few decades, tremendous progress has been made in treating sexual disorders, particularly with the development of a number of "prosexual" drugs.
A prosexual drug or nutrient is simply any substance that can improve sex or sexual health.
Generally speaking, there are three major ways in which prosexual substances enhance sex:
- They increase ability to perform and enjoy sex - including frequency and duration of erection in men ... and arousal, lubrication, and orgasms for women.
- They increase desire for sex (libido).
- They improve your general state of health.
During the last 50 years, many prosexual nutrients and substances have been identified which are important for sexual function and enjoyment. Here are eight of the most important. Together they greatly enhance ability and desire for sex.
