Sexual health is a significant part of everyone’s life and it is extremely important for men to take good care of their nutritional needs in order to maximize their sexual activity, sexual desire as well as performance.
The health of a man’s penis also plays a critical role in his overall general health and there are many types of herbs and vitamins a man can regularly consume to make sure that his reproductive organ is in top shape at all times. Let us look into some such specific herbs and vitamins.
Regular consumption of vitamin C supplements or including food items rich in vitamin C in your diet can have significant benefits for your sexual health. Vitamin C is known to play a critical role in the growth and repairing of tissues throughout human body, including the penis. It is essential for production of collagen, a type of protein which creates blood vessels and skin, both of which are main constituents of the male penis.
As noted by the University of Maryland Medical Centre, any man suffering from sexual issues such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction etc must consume regular doses of vitamin C. The recommended dosage is 250 to 500 mg per day, to be consumed either once or twice every day.
Consuming vitamin E on a regular basis can be a great boost for anyone’s health, more importantly if the individual is suffering from Peyronie’s disease (a condition characterized by a curve or bend in the penile shaft). The development of Peyronie’s disease happens due to a plaque or scar tissue in the penile shaft. It can result in excruciating pain while having erection or achieving orgasm.
Vitamin E is known to help significantly in alleviating the symptoms associated with penile curvature or Peyronie’s disease. However, as also recommended by the National Institute of Health Office of Dietary Supplements, one must not consume more than 1000 to 1500 IU of vitamin E per day. Excessive consumption of vitamin E can result in a condition wherein one can experience increased bleeding at the time of receiving a cut or suffering internal injuries.
Ginseng is a type of herbal ingredient that is easily available in all drugstores and is also commonly found in various ginseng supplements and ice tea. As per the National Institute of Health and National Centre for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, ginseng is a very important herb when it comes to treatment of erectile dysfunction and improvement of stamina.
Many studies have also indicated that regular consumption of ginseng plays a key role in enhancement of sexual desire and penile function. The recommended dosage of ginseng is 200 mg per day.
This medicinal herb has been in use since a long time in the treatment of disorders related to blood circulation. Regular consumption of ginkgo biloba can enhance the penile health by improving the blood circulation into the male reproductive organ. It is known to play a significant role in the treatment of erectile dysfunction as well.
Since there is no concrete scientific data available to support the regular use of ginkgo biloba in the enhancement of penis health, there is no particular recommended dosage for it. However, University of Maryland Medical Centre proposes that ginkgo biloba must be taken up to 240 mg every day for improvement in circulation of blood to the penis.
