The Viagra Alternative Options, Chemical And Natural
Searching for a Viagra alternative is easier now than it was five or so years ago. Of course, Viagra, the pioneer solution to ED (erectile dysfunction) was not released to the public until 1998, so chemical Viagra alternative scientists are just recently catching up (or on), even though the natural herb users have been using their choices for thousands of years. Whatever your choice, though, be it chemical or natural, there are numerous possibilities: CIALIS Cialis is a cheaper but evidently no less effective Viagra alternative. While it has not reportedly been significantly studied--in comparison to Viagra, Cialis has passed a number of tests indicating fewer side effects than Viagra, and indicators point to a significant difference in the drug's half-life (lasting time)...of not four hours but 24 hours. VARDENAFIL Bayer AG developed the Viagra alternative a couple of years back, one that has yet to be named as anything other than its major chemical component--vardenafil. The drug has undergone testing and has been found to have a better track record for some men, working every time as opposed to sometimes working and sometimes having no effect on erectile dysfunction at all. YOHIMBE A South African grown herbal Viagra alternative, Yohimbe is from the inner bark from the tree, Coryanthe Yohimbe. As tonic, liquid, or pill supplement, this natural element has been used for centuries to enhance sexual prowess by stimulation and to thereby be helpful in improving sexual dysfunction. Interestingly, Yohimbe has numerous non-sexual benefits--having been proven to elevate mood, reduce anxiety, lessen incidents of depression, and help with a number of other preventative and enhancement measures. It is recommended that safe doses vary from 18mg to 100mg a day, spread out over the course of the day, but as with any ingestible product, it is best to consult those trained and knowledgeable in herbal alternatives. HORNY GOAT WEED Another herbal Viagra alternative is known for its libido stimulating/increasing properties: the Chinese herb, Horny Goat Weed, also known as Epicedium, or Yin Yang Huo, is a leafy plant that grows in the wild in high altitude locales in Southeast Asia and elsewhere, has been used by traditional Chinese practitioners for 2,000+ years as an herbal solution to restoring erectile dysfunction, as well as a natural treatment for fatigue, menopausal symptoms, and other alleviation needs. CATUABA Medical professionals like Dr. Ray Sahelian and others have researched herbal Viagra alternatives like Catuaba, finding that such a rainforest herb is used as an effective "natural sex booster." From a medium-sized tree in the Amazon in parts of Brazil, Catuaba (Erythroxylum catuaba) is, like Yohimbe, a substance of the inner bark that is used by Brazilian herbalists as a CNS (central nervous system) stimulant, an aphrodisiac, and additionally as an alleviator for nervousness, anxiety, and memory enhancing. MUIRA PUAMA A Brazilian sister to the natural Viagra alternative, Catuaba, Muira Puama has been used to alleviate sexual impotence, too. From the trunk and roots of the shrubs, Ptychopetalum olacoides and Ptyychopetalum unicatum, the herbal substance is made into salves and tinctures to prevent impotence and enhance sexual potency in men. Still, generic Viagra and herbal Viagra alternatives still have to contend with the original Viagra. With the research done and the statistics in, that is, on hundreds of men over the age of 55 having perpetual erectile dysfunction using Viagra and reporting being exceptionally satisfied every single time, the real thing might still produce the best results.
