Conclusion: Tetrandrine, the main active ingredient in the Chinese herb Fen Fang Ji (the safe Fang Ji), has shown to relax penis muscles for enhanced blood flow to erectile tissue. It's mode of action is through Ca channel blocking, not nitric oxide pathways (which is the mechanism of viagra).
Conclusion: Cnidium Monnieri (Shi Chuang Zi) naturally increases nitric oxide release, which powerfully increases the production of cGMP. Cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate (cGMP) is the key in obtaining and sustaining a powerful erection. cGMP relaxes the muscles around the penis, which makes it possible for the cells in the penis to take in blood, thus allows you to experience a proper erection.
