Being unable to sustain an erection is troubling for any man, especially because erections are natural occurrences when aroused.
Erectile dysfunction or impotence occurs when a man’s erection is not strong enough for penetration.
The reason for this might be mental issues like anxiety and depression. Other times, it is a result of diabetes, heart diseases, smoking and drug abuse. In some cases, it is a serious issue that might need surgery to remedy.
Over the years, with science and tradition, people have discovered ways to go around these knotty issues involving erectile dysfunction and low libido.
These herbs exist as tea or supplements.
