Even though western medical techniques offer little in the way of improving sperm, managing chronic prostate issues, and getting to the bottom of WHY your erections are not what they used to be,...herbal medicine is showing more and more that these alternatives are something worth trying.
Viagra (Sildenafil) stimulates erections primarily by enhancing signaling through the nitric oxide pathway in the penis. This means that we need nitric oxide to obtain and sustain erections.
