Viagra and Cialis for Instant Hard Ons–Are they safe?

Viagra is as old as erectile dysfunction. When men found out that they were having potency problems, they started looking for all ways to enhance their organs. This included going to herbal doctors and getting some prescriptions for herbal aphrodisiacs. When some of these were found to work, extracts from the plants were taken to industries so that new medication for male impotency could be make and packaged in a nice way.

While some were effective, others were far away from efficacy. They were placebos sold by unscrupulous marketers who were only looking to earn and leave the buyers ripped off. Others were effective but very unsafe. Viagra and cialis fall under this category. Though they are very effective–infact they are the most effective quick erect pills that you will ever ingest– but at the same time, they pose a lot of health complications such as:

  • headaches
  • flushing
  • upset stomach
  • stuffy or runny nose
  • nausea
  • back pain
  • muscle pain

If asked on recommending these pills to men suffering from erectile dysfunction, I always give a disclaimer. I have also read reports of men who have had cardiac problems even leading to death after they take these pills.

Another thing is that they are not permanent. One needs to continually take the pills until a time when they want to have a hard on or get intimate with their spouses and girlfriends.

According to Webmd, you shouldn’t take these pills if you are having heart complications. So what are the alternatives. Drugs such as male extra and testogen are effective and safe to use because, they do the following:

  1. Increase your testosterone levels
  2. Increase the length and girth of your penis.
  3. Improve your overall libido.

Quick Erect Pills: What You Need to Know

We are often faced by our male industry workers who are worried to the bone about their health. They have been struggling with erectile dysfunction and so they come to us as a last resort. The question they all want answered is what male enhancement pills they can use to get back on their tracks.

What are male enhancement pills

Male enhancement pills are over the counter drugs that men take in order to get hard-ons faster . The most common is of course viagra which is popularly known as the blue pill.

As men age, they find that they are not able to erect as quickly as they were doing while they were younger. Age kills the testosterone which is a male hormone for boosting libido very quickly.

What is erectile dysfunction

As the word suggests, erectile dysfunction is the condition where you penis is not able to erect at the correct times. Say that your wife is turned on and really begging for some skin. You on the other hand do not want those talks at all. You are there with your limp body wishing that you were not born a man since you do not know to to react to such situations. Well, do not worry because there are quick erect pills that can help you. Other than pills, we would first want to know how you got into that problem first.

Causes of erectile dysfunction

  • Accidents where your genitalia was injured
  • Surgery
  • Drugs that affected your genitals
  • Heat around the groin area
  • Stress
  • Bad foods that introduce unhealthy cholesterol in your body

Other than male enhancement pills, what can I use?

  1. Foods rich in zinc,magnesium have been found to boost your testosterone levels and therefore increase your urge for sex as well as make you a pro in the actual performance.
  2. Losing weight and building up muscle has been found to improve enhancement in obese men.
  3. Avoiding stress since cortisol kills your testosterone and makes you not think about sex at all.

What about size enlargement, do they work

For one, the penis is natural. When you get a small one from your maker, get satisfied with that because trying to increase the size does not work and will never work despite what the ads tell you.

 

The High Testosterone and Weight Loss Link

Weight loss and testosterone levels are tied together. You have high testosterone, you are likely to lose more weight over a short time unlike a person who has low testosterone. The opposite of testosterone is estrogen, the hormone responsible for making females fat. What most people do not know is that both genders have testosterone and estrogen. Yes, women too have testosterone but in low quantities. No wonder you will see women who tend to be very muscular, are very strong, have a beard and tend talk with a broken voice. Their behaviors might also tend to be masculine if they have a higher level of testosterone than what the average female ought to have.

Men too have estrogen but in low quantities. No wonder you will find some men with man boobs, soft voices and also tend to behave in a feminine way. Do not scorn them or call them gay. It is just that they have too much estrogen in their systems.

So, how do you strike a balance?

Speaking of men, your testosterone levels should be high up in the sky. To ensure this:

Exercising and fitness

Make sure that you are physically fit by exercising and eating well

Weight loss has been linked to fitness. People who are fit have been found to also have high testosterone unlike their obese counterparts. So if you are a guy looking to boost your t levels, make sure that you love your gym. And it is not a gym membership only that will catapult you to greatness. No, you can also have your home gym where you train for at least 2 hours per day so as to keep your body well fit.

Zinc, magnesium and stinging nettle supplements

Eat foods with zinc and magnesium such as oyster, almond, pumpkin and chia seeds

Magnesium and zinc have been found to be great testosterone boosters. Getting magnesium and zinc from plants is not the best thing though because it will be bound by phytic acids and therefore not readily bioavailable. Having supplements of the same in the right quantities is the best thing. Kindly note that if you have too much, there will be side effects which are not going to be any good.

Other supplements include stinging nettle which has been found to not only increase your testosterone levels but also protect your from prostate enlargement.

Why take the supplements?

If you have ever studied the link between testosterone and estrogen, then you will know that the body is continually keeping a certain balance. When you have too much free testosterone, the enzyme aromatase have the task of converting all that free testosterone to estrogen.

At the same time, their is Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) protein whose task is to bind with the free testosterone making it non-bioavailable.

Now for someone who needs high testosterone levels, these two are enemies. Luckily with supplements such as zinc, magnesium and stinging nettle, you will be able to boost to stop the binding of free testosterone with SHBG as well as inhibiting enzyme aromatase that converts free testosterone to estrogen. A study published by  Springer link showed that testosterone increased with magnesium intake. Another one by Journal of Exercise Physiology showed that zinc is essential in free testosterone boosts.

Sleep well

Sleep is an important part in hormonal balance. For those who have tried the testosterone test kits, they have found out that they have high testosterone levels in the morning right after sleep. In the evening after a long day of hard labor, their testosterone levels will be very low.

So sleep is an important part in hormonal growth. Hormones are built when the body and brain are at rest. If you therefore want high testosterone, make sure that you are getting a lot of good sleep.

Weight loss pills

All weight loss pills have a testosterone trigger. If you were for example to look at the best gnc fat burners, you will find that they also boost testosterone levels so that your fat mass is converted into muscle mass and in this way, you become ripped rather than look obese all through.

Stinging Nettle: A Natural Way to Increase Testosterone As Well As Treat Prostrate Problems among Men

We all know what testosterone is, right? It is the sex hormone responsible for manliness; that makes men muscular, have a deep voice, have hair on their chins, broad muscles and all that. Most importantly, testosterone makes a man have sexual desire and also be able to perform well under the bed sheets.

And if there is one thing that a man would never part with—it is his ability to deeply desire sex and excellently perform in it, right?

stinging nettle

On hitting the ages of 30-40 though, most men experience a reduction in their testosterone levels and instead their estrogen levels go up [Estrogen is the female hormone and has been attributed to fats]. What does this mean? That the man will not be able to perform as excellently as he did earlier in bed. That he starts balding. That he loses his muscles and they are replaced with fat tissues. It is because of this reason why you will see so many commercial adverts purporting to help men increase their testosterone levels.

 

Most of the solutions sold in the adverts are expensive and at times ineffective. In this post, I will tell you about stinging nettle (Urtica dioica or thafai in my local language) and how it can help you increase your testosterone levels as well as reduce prostate problems.

Figure 1: Stinging nettle leaves

Now stinging nettle mostly occurs as a weed on Kenyan highlands. [I live in Lari constituency and the plant grows as a herb along the Arberdare Forest where men urinate on it or pass by it without a fuss.] If the hairy leaves have ever come into contact with your hand, then you know how fiery the irritation can get.

Most local herbalists in Kenya use it as a cure for:

  • Arthritis
  • Gout
  • Alopecia (hair loss)
  • Asthma

How to increase testosterone with stinging nettle

 

Before I explain how stinging nettle increases testosterone, I need to point out that there are two forms of testosterone hormone in your body; free and total testosterone.

Figure 2: Testosterone

According to Webmd, a health website that seeks to explore almost all diseases, total testosterone is the total amount of testosterone in your body while free testosterone is that which flows freely in your blood. [If you were to go for a testosterone blood test, the results would show the free testosterone but not the total testosterone].

The remainder is bound by body proteins such as albumin and Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) protein.

 

So how does stinging nettle increase testosterone?

  1. Stinging nettle frees up testosterone in your body by binding itself with the sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). So when stinging nettle binds itself up with the SHBG, the testosterone that was bound by this SHBG moves freely into your blood stream bringing all the fiery attributes of the hormone in you.
  2. Stinging nettle is an aromatase inhibitor. Now according to the National Centre for Biotechnology Information, aromatase are compounds that convert free testosterone to estrogen. This is not a good thing for a man because we said that testosterone makes a man look manly while estrogen would make you seem femalish.

 

Now when you add stinging nettle in the mix, the aromatase is inhibited (its action is stopped) and therefore your body get more free testosterone.

 

Stinging nettle and benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH)

Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) is a condition in which the prostate gland swells pressing the urethra, in this way making urination a difficult and painful process. A study by the University of Maryland showed that many people in Europe have used stinging nettle to treat BPH with positive results.

 

How to maintain best male health

Our country’s infrastructure is a man’s job. No matter how equal we might want to be, most of the people in this ministry are men. Look at masons, engineers, plumbers and carpenters- 90% are men. Man was created first by God according to the Bible. Though feminists might argue that none should have preferential treatment over the other, a man in the African setting is the provider and is the patriach who protects and looks over their family. So his health is of importance and should be paramount in a homestead

  1. Eat Well

Food is everything. An adage goes that the way to a man’s heart is through the stomach and true to the adage, a man should ensure that they eat well and a balanced diet. So what makes a balanced diet:

  • Vitamins: green vegetables, fruits and smoothies
  • Proteins: Meat, eggs and beans. Take more proteins as opposed to carbs so that you can build muscles
  • Carbs: Ugali, chapatis. While carbs are good because they give your body energy, they should be taken in moderation. Why? Well excess carbs are converted into glycogen and stored in fat format. So, you really need to be wary of this. Again, whatever you take, make sure it is made from whole grain for example whole grain wheat or sorghum for ugali.
  • Water: Take at least 8 glasses per day.
  • Caffeine: If you are having weight problems, caffeine is a good thermogenic fat burner. However excess of it is not so good as it causes insomnia as well as red eyes and anxiety. So take it in moderation. Other than coffee, you can take green tea which has the same fat burning effects.

  1. Avoid Stress

stressed out man

Stress kills. Emotional stress is very bad for men because they tend not to talk out their problems. They therefore die younger than women who talk of their problems more.

  1. Be spiritual

Trust in a spiritual being so that you do not stress yourself all through trying to get solutions that do not exist.

  1. Avoid Drugs and alcohol Abuse

Drugs and alcohol abuse is detrimental to your health. It only makes you weaker and weaker.

  1. Avoid toxic relationships

Toxic relations could be with your spouse or even those fair-weather friends who only want your money and nothing else.

Check your reproductive health regulary

Today, men’s reproductive health is undergoing something really drastic. More men are reporting as impotent especially those working in this industry. Why, hurting your genitalia is not equal to a woman hurting her boobs. With you, that might be the end to your lineage while for her, it means just a scar. Men who work as blacksmiths and welders also expose their testes to lots of heat. This could lead to impotence.

Those working in x-ray chambers and with heavy metal such as lead are also at risk. Weight gain is also not good since it might lead to erectile dysfunction. When such things happen, you are asked to check male enhancement pills that work fast so that you can maintain your hard-ons and as such bear children.
