Top Nine Supplements for Erectile Dysfunction and Sexual Health*

3. Ginkgo biloba


Ginkgo biloba

The seeds of the ginkgo biloba tree have been used to treat various health problems for at least four thousand years, and it is still one of the most popular remedies in the world as a natural treatment for erectile dysfunction. Ginkgo biloba possesses a component called terpenoids, which improve blood flow and therefore are important for treating erectile dysfunction. Some scientific studies backup claims that ginkgo biloba helps treat erectile dysfunction, including a study published in Human Psychopharmacology, in which the investigators reported that ginkgo had produced “some spectacular individual responses.” (Wheatley)  A review article noted that there was “some degree of evidence” that the herb benefited men who had erectile dysfunction. (McKay) A typical dose for erectile dysfunction is 120 to 240 mg daily, standardized to contain 24 to 32 percent glycosides and 6 to 12 percent terpenoids.  More on Ginkgo biloba
