Aging is never a fun business, especially for men. Muscle mass goes down, testosterone balance fluctuates, prostate problems become more likely, and penis function often reduces. While you can’t stop time in its tracks, you can use anti-aging antioxidants and penis specific vitamins to reduce the negative effects of aging. Many of them are not expensive, and have been tested in peer-reviewed trials to have significant benefits for nerve health and erectile function. If you are on medications, particularly heart medications, check with your doctor first before purchasing supplements.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is one of the most important vitamins for human health. Immune function, adrenal function, tissue formation and fertility all rely on vitamin C. At least one study suggests that vitamin C may play a role in penis and erectile function. Researchers from the Tulane University Health Sciences Center in the U.S.A. found that vitamin C given to male animals reversed erectile dysfunction caused by both cardiovascular and nerve problems. This study, published in The International Journal of Andrology in 2009, gives further evidence that vitamin C is a specific nutrient for male health and may be a safe and effective treatment for nerve and penis health problems. Many fruits and vegetables, including kiwifruit, strawberries, oranges, mangoes, capsicum and pumpkin, are high in vitamin C. When supplementing a dosage of 1000mg of vitamin C per day is recommended.
Vitamin D is the sun vitamin, absorbed through the skin via UVB light. For decades scientists have known that vitamin D was important for the development of healthy bones, but more recently they have also begun to understand the role of vitamin D in nerve function. The nervous system depends on high levels of vitamin D to operate optimally. Without it, individuals are more at risk of neurological conditions, depression, seasonal affective disorder, anxiety, low libido and nerve disease. According to Prue hart, in a research review published in Discovery Medicine on June 14, 2012, there are several studies linking low levels of vitamin D to increased prevalence of nerve disorders like multiple sclerosis. Vitamin D can be increased naturally through supplementation, topical vitamin D creams, and simply going outside and getting half an hour of direct sun each day.
Vitamin E, also known as tocopherol, is an important antioxidant in the body. It helps with healing wounds, preventing scar tissue, supporting fertility and reducing inflammation. When taken as a supplement, vitamin E also supports nitric oxide (NO) production — the body’s natural erection enhancement products. During a study, published in the German medical journal Der Urologe in 1999, vitamin E supplements were given to 100 male subjects with erectile dysfunction. After four weeks of treatment 15% of the men were able to achieve normal intercourse, and another 15% reported increased libido. By increasing the NO production in the body, circulation to the penis and erection is achieved more easily. Nuts, seeds, grains and fish are all high in vitamin E, and supplements with vitamin E are safe as long as you are not on anti-coagulant medications.
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is another antioxidant that is less well-known, but steadily growing in reputation. Similar to a vitamin, ALA functions similarly to the B complex vitamins, but because the body can makes its own ALA it is not a true vitamin. Supplementation with ALA has been shown to have many therapeutic benefits, especially for men. Researchers from Turqua investigated the effects of ALA on penis nerve fibers after they have been damaged by oxidation and/or surgery. When treated with ALA, the antioxidant protected tissues and nerves from oxidative damage caused by local surgery, and significantly improved the regeneration of nerves in the penis. This confirms the results of many other studies, which have shown ALA to regenerate and heal nerves damaged by diabetes.
Male Health Crmes
Using penis health crmes protects both the superficial and the deep tissues of the penis from oxidative damage. Containing antioxidant vitamins and extracts that support tissue regeneration, nerve sensitivity and penis health, Crmes improve the look and feel of the male organ. Use specialist formulas for male organ health (most health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) to moisturize your skin following daily washing, and give the creme time to absorb. The ingredient alpha lipoic acid has been shown to prevent age-related nerve problems, while bioactive antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E help to promote nitric oxide (NO) — the body’s own natural erection enhancement products– and promote connective tissue integrity.
