Role of Nitric Oxide in erectile dysfunction

Nitric oxide is a molecule that’s produced naturally by your body, and it’s important for many aspects of your health. Its most important function is vasodilation, meaning it relaxes the inner muscles of the blood vessels, causing them to widen and increase circulation. Nitric oxide production is essential for overall health because it allows blood, nutrients and oxygen to travel to every part of your body effectively and efficiently. In fact, a limited capacity to produce nitric oxide is associated with heart disease, diabetes and erectile dysfunction.

Decreased Nitric oxide production is one of the common causes of erectile dysfunction. At the Innovative Men’s Clinic we offer powerful nitric oxide promoters such as L-Arginine.

L-arginine may stimulate the production of nitric oxide, thus promote male sexual function. Arginin may also provide a support for male fertility and boost libido. L-arginine promote sexual performance due to its role in the production of nitric oxide. It also increases male sexual endurance.

Men are interested in the best ways to boost Nitric Oxide naturally, largely because they are marketed for male sexual performance enhancement and exercise performance enhancement. In fact, erectile dysfunction treatments like Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis work to help your nitric oxide stick around and accumulate in the penis to provide stronger erections, but also shows many & major side effects in body.

Nitric Oxide – (NO) has many functions in the body but the focus of this article is nitric oxides’s function as a signaling molecule that relaxes the small muscles in our blood vessels, allowing increased blood flow through the vessel (in other words, NO is a vasodilator). In the case of the penis, when nitric oxide levels in the penis increase the penile blood also increases and can lead to an erection. Sexual arousal signals this release of nitric oxider. That should give you all some motivation!

For our bodies to produce nitric Oxide, various nutrients and precursors are necessary. This includes nitrates, which are found in many foods, particularly green, leafy vegetables. We also get nitric oxide from an enzyme called nitric oxide synthase (NOS), whose function is enhanced by adequate testosterone levels. This is where the supplement L-arginine comes in. L-arginine can be converted into nitric oxide by the enzyme, NOS. In the example we used earlier, arousal plus more L-arginine in the penis results in more nitric oxide in the penile blood vessels and subsequently better erections. Of course, arousal is also an important aspect of obtaining a satisfying erection (perhaps the most important) and that requires healthy testosterone and estrogen balance.

The connection between nitric oxide and erectile dysfunction?

Nitric oxide is well known these days because it is the target of drugs like sildenafil (Viagra), which treat erectile dysfunction(ED).Nitric oxide helps relax blood vessels and smooth muscle in the penis, allowing for the increased blood flow needed to initiate and maintain an erection.Interestingly, sildenafil was originally developed to treat angina, though it turned out that it works better for ED. It’s now well known that ED is connected to cardiovascular disease, and reduced nitric oxide may help explain the link. In fact, some research has found that men who have ED as a result of reduced nitric oxide are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease. Currently researchers are experimenting with ways of delivering nitric oxide directly to the penis via application to its skin.

Keep in mind, ED can be caused by other problems than low nitric oxide, so drugs like sildenafil don’t work for all men with ED. Many medical and emotional factors can contribute to ED.

If you’re a guy, boosting nitric oxide can improve your erection quality. In fact, Viagra and Cialis, the two most popular erectile dysfunction medications, both work by stimulating nitric oxide pathways in the penis, relaxing blood vessel muscles so more blood can flow through.

Good News: if you have occasional trouble in the bedroom, you don’t need a prescription to get a stronger erection. A lot of men with erectile dysfunction have low L-arginine or L-citrulline, two amino acids that increase nitric oxide production. Supplementing with either one (or both) can improve erection quality and duration. You may also be able to get firmer erections by eating more foods that contain L-citrulline or L-arginine.
