Posted: 17/12/2008 | Views: 2,834 |

A Glossary of the most successfully used Chinese herbs in herbal preparations for men's sexual performance, vitality, endurance and stamina.
The following list of herbs have been tried and tested over thousands of years in Chinese Herbal medicine. Some of these herbs are used for daily culinary purposes too.
A balanced combination of the following herbs and their extracts will enhance men's ability to perform better. These herbs are normally used in Chinese concoctions, brews and soups. In keeping with this tradition, they have been known to function at their best when consumed in a similar manner.
A combination of the following herbs in a ‘herbal brew' for example, would produce noticeable results in men's sexual potency.

Unfortunately, very few herbal supplements opt for an ‘herbal tea' format as a delivery system and settle for the same old ‘pill', which reduces the bioavailability of the powerful nutrients contained within the cell structures of these herbs.

Here is a list of these herbs and a simple explanation of their functions:

Short-Horned Epimedium Herb ( Herba epimedii )
Active constituent : Icariin, Epindoside
Epimedium herb stimulates sexual activity and desire in both men and women.
The "active compound" in Epimedium is the flavonol glycoside called icariin. It works by increasing your  nitric oxide levels( required for normal erections) and inhibiting PDE-5 activity in exactly the same way that sexual enhancing drugs like Viagra, Levitra or Cialis function.
Scientific research has demonstrated that by relaxing the smooth muscle of the corpus cavernosa in your penis, icariin extract increases penile blood pressure dramatically, giving you more rigid and larger erections.

As a strong kidney tonic, it stimulates nerves throughout your body, and effects experienced particularly in your genitalia. Found to have aphrodisiac properties in males, it enhances your sexual performance, by increasing sexual hormone and testosterone production. It also increases the production of sperm, restores testicular health, stimulates and promotes intense sexual desire.
Helps with irregular menses, infertility and menopause in women too.
Epimedium stimulates the production of androgens (sex hormones) and has been used successfully in men suffering from erection problems, low sperm count and premature ejaculation throughout history.

The fundamental principles governing the effectiveness of any herbal preparation for men is based on the combination of the energies of the various herbs that make up the ingredients list of the product. The method of extraction plays an important role too.

The secret to sustaining our health and well being is in the plants that we were given by nature. Man's quest for perfecting a drug is a never ending one.

Ultimately, we are only trying to mimic, at great expense, what nature has given to us in abundance.

    Impotence or erectile dysfunction is the inability to achieve and maintain penile erection sufficient to complete satisfactory intercourse. It refers only to the ability to have erections and does not affect normal sensation, sex drive, or the ability to have an orgasm. Erectile dysfunction can be a total inability to achieve erection, an inconsistent ability to do so, or a tendency to sustain only brief erections. It is considered a problem when any of these occur 25% of the time.
