Asian Health Secrets for Men
The Advent of pharmaceutical drugs for erectile dysfunction in the 1990's revealed to the worlds attention just how common male sexual health problems are and the issue of male andropause was brought into the open, especially in the West. In the East however, this subject has always been popular and those herbs famed to improve sexual potency have held pride of place in each Asian culture.
Male Andropause - what are men to do?
In those not suffering from chronic disease, male erectile strength is influenced primarily by the proper functioning between the hormonal, cardiovascular and nervous systems. Male andropause is the term given to a noticeable decline in free testosterone and symptoms include erectile dysfunction, loss of muscle mass, irritability, generalized fatigue and even problems with memory and cognition. Studies have noted that testosterone levels and sperm count has been declining in many parts of the world and it has been postulated that rising estrogen exposure in foods and the environment may be partly responsible. The cardiovascular and nervous systems are maintained by regular exercise, keeping body weight within healthy limits and dietary and lifestyle habits that promote healthy nerve and vascular blood supply, especially to the pelvic area. The male hormonal and nervous systems may also be affected unknowingly by various medications and alcohol.
Enter the Asian Solution - Herbal Aphrodisiacs
In Asian culture in particular, men appreciate that with ageing, stress or a decline in health, comes a reduction in sexual potency and therefore they rely on the regular consumption of "herbal aphrodisiacs " that work to both increase sexual strength as well as promote resistance to disease. Herbal medicines that are effective have been eagerly sought after and each region in Asia has its most highly valued herbal remedies for male sexual health.
While by training, doctors and scientists are skeptical about the value of such herbal remedies in treating sexual dysfunction and ED, centuries of trial and error are considered valuable testimonies to a treatments value. How many modern drugs will be available even 20 years from now? It is not surprising that when detailed animal or human clinical studies are eventually performed on many of these prized Asian remedies (drug companies and Universities have little motivation to research herbs already used for sexual dysfunction as they cannot claim patent rights) it is found that they do indeed possess unique pharmacologically active ingredients that support male sexual health and increase testosterone, often with the added advantage that they are very safe for regular consumption. The Medical claim for the placebo effect for herbal remedies is quickly discounted when the laboratory animals experience the very same enhanced sexual effects that Asian traditional healers and patients have known about for centuries!
ALSO KNOWN as Malaysian Ginseng, Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) has an ancient reputation as a herbal aphrodisiac. Its name means "Ali's staff or walking stick" in reference to its effects on male sexual health. In studies it has been shown to increase testosterone levels, raise endurance and improve stress tolerance. Many successful laboratory animal studies have confirmed that its traditional use is not a placebo. Each of these studies revealed a marked improvement in multiple aspects of mice sexual behaviour after ingestion of Tongkat Ali. Free testosterone levels were also enhanced together with an increase in sperm production. Further research has also revealed an “anxiolitic” or anxiety relieving effects in animal models.
