Scientists may have found a natural ingredient for the treatment of erectile dysfunction with no side effects, according to study.
Erectile dysfunction is a condition in which a man can not get or keep an erection to have sexual intercourse, affecting the self-confidence and contributing to relationship problems.
According to the statistics provided by the Massachusetts Male Aging Study, erectile dysfunction increased with age, affecting 40% and 70% of men in the age group of 40 and 70, respectively.
In other words, the prevalence of complete ED increased from 5% at age 40 to 15% at age 70. 150 million men worldwide have ED.
Age, hypertension, use of anti-hypertensive drugs, diabetes mellitus, heart disease and daily stress at home and work have been found to associate with the prevalent risk of ED.
Some researchers suggested the prevalence of ED may be correlated to widespread obesity in the Western world.
Dr. Skrypnik D, the lead scientist said, "In The United States it (obesity) causes more than 300 000 deaths per year. It leads to many complications, such as ischemic heart disease, hypertension, dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, and abnormal carbohydrate metabolism".
And, " obesity is also an independent risk factor for erectile dysfunction in men. 79% of men presenting erectile disorders have a BMI of 25 kg/m2 or greater. BMI in the range 25-30 kg/m2 is associated with 1,5 times, and in the range of over 30 kg/m2 with a 3 times greater risk of sexual dysfunction".
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) or ginger root, the second superfood used for thousands of years by mankind, is the genus Zingiber, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to Tamil.
The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine for the treatment of dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.
With an aim to find a natural treatment for patients with erectile dysfunction with no side effects, researchers examined the effects of oral administration of Revactin twice daily (total daily dose of 500 mg of ginger root, Muira puama, and Paullinia cupana and 1,600 mg of L-citrulline in 54 middle-aged men with erectile dysfunction.
Based on the results from the complete IIEF-15 questionnaire [domains: erectile function (EF), orgasmic function (OF), sexual desire (SD), intercourse satisfaction (IS), overall satisfaction (OS)] at baseline (B), 1 month (M1), 2 months (M2) and 3 months (M3) and report any side effects, Revactin exerted a strong effect on the increase in median domain scores of OF, SD, IS, OS over 3 months compared to baseline median scores.
However, after taking other factors into account, statistical significance was found only in the EF, IS, and OS median domain scores.
5 patients in the study showed the reporting treatment side effects (e.g., dyspepsia, heartburn, migraine) and none considered severe.
Overall, approximately 50% of the patients reported a significant improvement in EF (P<0.05), compared to baseline.
Dr. Nguyen S, the lead scientist said, "Revactin®, a combination of 3 nutraceuticals packaged with L-citrulline, appears to have the same excellent safety profile known for each of its individual four components".
Take all together, ginger combined with other herbal medicines may be considered functional alternatives for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, pending to the confirmation of large sample size and multicenter human study.
