Top Nine Supplements for Erectile Dysfunction and Sexual Health*

It’s nearly impossible to watch a sports-related event on television and not see at least one commercial for erectile dysfunction (ED) medication. What you rarely see, however, are ads for natural remedies for erectile dysfunction. Here are the top natural supplements for treating erectile dysfunction, plus three with anecdotal evidence based on our review of the latest research as well as our analysis of the most recent successful clinical trials.


1. Carnitine

 

Carnitine

Carnitine is an amino acid that is heavily involved in producing energy for the body. But carnitine also can play a key role in erectile dysfunction and libido. When researchers compared carnitine with testosterone in men who were experiencing low libido, fatigue, and depression, they found that after six months of treatment, both carnitine and testosterone improved erections and sexual performance, and carnitine was more effective than the hormone. In fact, testosterone caused an increase in prostate volume and size, while carnitine did not. Both supplements provided significant improvement in fatigue and depression as well. (Cavallini) If carnitine is on your list of erectile dysfunction supplements to try, do so only under the supervision of a knowledgeable healthcare professional. Doses of 3 grams daily may cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and a fishy body odor.  More on Carnitine
