    Just curious to know if there is any over the counter vitamin or herb that helps with getting an erection quickly. I mean, I'm 52 and get good hard erections but they take a bit more time than they use to. I am healthy, normal blood pressure etc but it's still slower than it use to be. Just wondering if there's anything besides viagra that helps to get you harder in a shorter period of time.

    The following are well known aphrodisiacs which improve circulation and therefore increase hardness during erections:

    Yohimbe
    Horny goat weed
    Butea superba
    Gingko biloba
    Bois bande
    Panax ginseng
    American ginseng
    Ginger
    Hot chilli peppers
    Goji berries
    Miura pauma
    Cnidium monnier
    Catauba bark
    Cordyceps

    The following increase testosterone which increases sex drive and therefore increases erection frequency and hardness:

    Tongkat ali
    Tribulus terrestris
    L-arginine
    Avena sativa

    However none of these will work the same way as Viagra who's effect is concentrated locally in the penis, giving erections on demand. Herbal supplements need to be taken regularly to have the desired effect.

    None of the herbals will work and a few of the herbals have problems in men our age. Yohimbie is one that needs to be avoided in particular for those over 50 because it can cause a very radical increase in blood pressure in some people. Not all herbals are safe either.

    I have diagnosed ED and mine started with "slow" but functional erections when I was in my early 40's. I now have the joy of taking Quad Mix for this condition and though this has some really great fun aspects that make the erections better than whem I was a teen, it is not all that much fun.

    If it is just starting the thing to do is to try and get on very low dose Cialis on a daily basis. Some new research indicates that the low dose Cialis has some potential to prevent the condition from progressing if taken daily. The problem is that it is expensive.

    If you have a chance get to an MD before things really get too serious. I made the mistake of waiting far too long with mine and requiring injections is not a great thing. A ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure or in my case functionality.

    By the way, ED is badly misunderstood by many MD's and they tend to ignore it and there are even a few fossils who will tell you that it is all in your head. Fight hard on this one pal because down the road this can progress on you.

    Also get a physical and check for hypertension, blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

    Anything off in those three can accelerate the process.

    Good Luck my friend.......

    Gingko Biloba and L-Arginine are both good supplements to take to improve circulatory and cardio-vascular health. But, I would highly recommend some general good health practices such as eating a balanced diet with lots of lean proteins and complex carbohydrates, incorporating cardio exercises at least 3 times a week, AND getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep nightly. I would add limiting your refined carbohydrate and alcohol intake; not avoiding them altogether but enjoy small to moderate indulgences occasionally.

    Also, believe it or not, those over the counter "male enhancement" supplements like Extenze have a "viagra like" effect. They won't necessarily make you bigger, as they claim, but they do firm up erections nicely when you need a "boost". Even one dose, if taken at least 5-6 hours before sexual activity can be effective but you may need to take it a 2-3 days in a row to get the maximum benefit.

    Thanks guys. As I said, I'm not really having ED as it were. When I'm in bed with my partner things work fine, just slower than it use to. I get seriously rock hard erections and even after cumming it stays hard much longer than his and he's 20 years younger than me. But, just as an example, I use to get hard looking at some hot guy at the gym. Not any more. For that to happen I have to be touched - either by him or myself. That's the strange part for me. When anyone sensually/sexually touches me (except getting a massage, I guess) I'm fine. If I'm looking at porn, I get hard too. I've been worried however about those time when I use to get hard just looking at another guy and now it just doesn't happen. Maybe I worry unnecessarily.

    I do not have ED. But, I have used an over the counter supplement 'for fun' and found that it really truly works (for me). It works so well, that I only take half of one capsule now as one full capsule is too much. Not all herbals work for everyone.

    The herbal I take once in a while is Stiff Nights. It is also sold under another name....Aziffa or something. Like I said, I don't need it, I use it only once in a while, but man does it work.

    Yeah... I started using Extenze for fun a year ago and noticed that my erections were way harder than usual after taking it for a couple of days. I was, at the time, taking it daily to see if the commercial claims held water. I'm bigger than average and wasn't really trying to increase my dick size... I was just curious. What did happen for me made me a loyal user of the product.

    The results are you do experience firmer erections, which for some men actually can give them an extra 1/4" - 1/2" in length. The penis doesn't actually grow per se... the supplement just ensures maximum potential. It's fun so long as you don't expect to grow another couple of inches or more. This product does not do that, nor will it ever.

    I don't use it daily anymore... I actually stopped after the first couple of weeks. Now I only use it when I know I'm getting laid. One pill does the trick just fine, though I have noticed taking it as far ahead of time as possible works better than an hour or two before sex. I'm also lucky to be healthy enough to not have to rely on it. I can get a hardon just thinking about it. :biggrin1:

    Zinc has long been known and used to put lead in your pencil. You can take a supplement of 30mg per day and perhaps 2 of those on days you feel you may get lucky. Arginine 1 Gram, 3x day will also help. HGW is also known to help but is sporadic and it takes a few days to kick in. None of these will give you the sides that you will get with Cialis, even the daily dose.
    Oh, also have your *FREE* Testosterone level checked. Your total T can be normal but your Free could be in the toilet due to any number of factors. Best wishes.

    What you are looking for is something to stregthen your libido so that when the wind blows you get hard, like when you were 20-30 years younger! If you want to stick with herbal products, about the only thing that is still on the market (Aspire was taken off due to some ingredients were already patented in ED drugs), try Vialipro. It seems to have the right amount of each of the ingredients to make your cock super sensitive to even rubbing against your pants. It lasts 3 days, like Cialis but you don't have to wait for stimulation with it. Another interesting "side effect" is that your cock will stay in almost a "semi" state for 3 days, kinda like the size it is after you go soft after you shoot your load. Because it works for 3 days you don't have to take as much. Problem is, and this is just me, the 1 time I took 2 caps, according to directions, I had an IMMENSE headache the following day but I took it on an empty stomach. I have read some reviews on Amazon that guys have no problem when they take it with food but that may delay the amount of time for it to work and it may not work as well. Your mileage may very. It is real expensive but not as expensive as ED drugs.
    NOTE: My order was through the Vialipro site itself and when I considered the IMMENSE headache totally unacceptable as I seldom get headaches at all and this sucker had me in serious pain, I returned both boxes I purchased and they refunded my money.

    I can say from personal experience that if I eat broccoli, I become erect very easily. I've heard it's due to the high zinc content. Hope that helps.

    Nothing gets you harder than Viagra... but if you don't want to take it then do penis excercises, you can find free ones on the internet all over. Just do the basics and you'll be surprised not only how hard you get but how fast you get hard... oh and don't be surprised to gain some length and girth while doing these excercises neither.

    yes, but you have to consume 15 cups a day. That's pretty much an entire watermelon. *burrrp*
