Why Erections Fail?
As we are all aware, we move our body parts with the help of muscles which contract and relax causing movement. In the case of penis, muscle contractions do not take place as there is no supporting bone structure. Hence the body applies pressure technique for the penis to become erect.
Physiology of the Penis:
The major muscle present in the Penis is the Corpora Cavernosa. This muscle is present as two cylindrical muscle bands extending to the tip of the penis. There are arteries and veins filled in these muscles. In the normal limp position, the blood is carried in through the arteries and carried out through the veins as per the normal body pressure.
When sexual stimulation starts and the man is aroused, blood rushes to the penis and the arteries open up to accommodate the pressurized inflow of blood. Due to the pressure of inflow the veins get restricted and narrow hence the outflow reduces. There is a pressure build up in the penis with the blood trapped inside the arteries and hence the penis elongates and stiffens to cause Erection.
Causes for Erectile Dysfunction:
– If psychological factors like tension, stress prevent the initial arousal process
Hence for an Effective Erection the arteries need to be opened up and blood flow to the penis should increase. In case of psychological and physiological factors necessary measures should be taken to improve the mental and physical health of the person.
Role of the Brain:
The nitric oxide acts on the surrounding cells and stimulates an enzyme called guanylate cyclase.This enzyme starts producing a chemical called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). This chemical makes the muscles of the artery to relax thereby expanding enough to allow increased blood flow.
Simultaneously there is another enzyme called phosphodiesterase (PDE) which has the function of deactivating the cGMP.
Generally in the condition of Erectile Dysfunction the cycle functions properly to the stage where nitrci oxide is released. However, there is not enough cGMP produced to relax the muscle and increase the blood flow. Hence the man experiences stimulation and arousal but does not experience erection as blood flow is not turned on by cGMP.
How do Herbs help in improving Erectile Functioning?
Xanthoparmelia scabrosa’s active chemicals disrupt PDE-5, the enzyme which deactivates cGMP. Thus the cGMP produced remains in the arteries and relaxes the muscle thereby increasing the blood flow resulting in a healthy erection. As long as the effect of the herbal supplement exists the process continues and normalcy of blood flow is restored once the effect wears off.
Awareness is the first step to improvement. Now that you are aware of the physiology of the penis, the mechanism of the sexual stimulation and erection function besides learning that the herbs act in a simple & safe way to provide solution for your problem, go ahead and enjoy the benefits of Herbal Viagra without worrying about any side-effects.
