Chinese Viagra Alternative: Herbs to Treat ED and Boost Libido

CATEGORY: Erectile Dysfunction

Decreased potency is a very common problem in males. In some patients, it appears sporadically, indicating a lack of proper rest or presence of ingrained bad habits, while in others it becomes a chronic condition, causing disharmony in many areas of a life. In addition to the fact that the deterioration of potency signals a malfunction in the functioning of the body, this phenomenon has an extremely negative effect on psychological state.

A man loses confidence, there may be serious difficulties in the relationship with his partner. So erectile dysfunction sufferers seek to find a treatment, and some of them prefer natural methods.

Chinese Viagra Alternatives: List of Herbs and Other Remedies

Epimedium. The Chinese name for this plant is “淫羊藿”, which can be translated like “goat’s exciter”. About 2 thousand years ago, Chinese shepherds gave this strange name to this plant due to an interesting observation: after grazing in Epimedium bushes, goats became excessively sexually active. It quickly became clear that this plant has the same effect on humans, especially on men.

Schisandra Chinensis

Schisandra Chinensis. Chinese healers have been using this tool to increase potency for a long time. However, several years ago, scientists discovered the ability of Schizandra to treat the most dangerous and incurable sexually transmitted disease. Specialists in traditional Chinese medicine announced that Schisandra remedies can kill human immunodeficiency virus. Traditional medicine specialists have reported that while AIDS patients are still being treated by improving their immunity, Schisandra supplements are capable of killing the virus itself.

Ginseng. This is a world-famous tonic, which is used to treat various diseases. The Chinese believe that “the most useful Ginseng” is growing in Jilin province in the northeast of the country. However, this plant also grows in more northern regions, including certain areas of Siberia and the Far East.

cordyceps

Tibetan Cordyceps. This is a parasitic fungus, germinated from the body of the silkworm killed by it. The best cordyceps specimen are collected in the remote mountainous regions of the Tibet Autonomous Region of China and the north of Sichuan Province. Such a remedy can cost up to $29 thousand per 1 kg.

Genitals of powerful animals. The belief about their effects on the potency came from pre-Taoist and pre-Confucian pagan China. The ancient inhabitants believed that consuming the genitals helped to improve the male potency. Earlier, tiger penises were often used by men with poor potency. Today their use is illegal (plus, poaching is a crime). The most popular remedies of this kind which are used today include boiled bovine eggs, as well as alcoholized or powdered deer penises.

What Are the Benefits of Plant Alternatives?

However, the list of other contraindications and possible side effects is minimal. In addition, Chinese drugs for potency can be used by men without signs of impotence to increase stamina and prolong sexual intercourse.

Since such medications are based on natural ingredients of plant and animal origin, they are suitable for followers of natural treatment.

What Are the Disadvantages?

Natural potency enhancers are almost always less effective than pharmaceuticals. Often their beneficial effect is based on the placebo effect. They can be effective, but the therapeutic action is achieved for a long time in combination with a healthy lifestyle (whereas Viagra’s onset of action is observed 30-60 minutes after consumption).

It is also worth noting that the “beneficial effect” of some natural products is simply meaningless and based on strange beliefs. The use of a tiger’s penis for better potency is similar to eating the brain of a defeated enemy by a cannibal.

Local police started an investigation, during which more than 5,357 bottles of alcohol were confiscated. According to the South China Morning Post, investigators also found bags with white substance sildenafil (the main component of Viagra).

Chinese manufacturers may offer rather strange products to improve potency, for example, Shark extract, which actually contains chicory, ginseng and extracts from tortoise shell, seahorse, yak plant, antlers and other extracts derived animal and plant raw materials. Another example, a remedy called ATOMIC BOMB is based on the natural ingredients of animal and vegetable origin. According to producers’ claims, with its help, blood circulation is accelerated, thereby it helps to increase the growth of genital cells (leading to penis length increase). We would not recommend these drugs, because their alleged effects are clearly exaggerated, in addition, they may contain unknown substances.
