Herbal viagra

Herbal Viagra became very popular in the 1980s as the first drug for infertility. The Pausinystalia yohimbe tree of the Rubiaceae family is an evergreen tree native to West Africa, also present in Asia. It is the only listed herb in the medical world for improving sexual function. The yohimbe herb has been used extensively to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) for more than 75 years.

The US FDA approved yohimbe as the first plant-derived drug for the treatment of infertility in the late 1980s and it was recognized in the February 1999 edition of Environmental Nutrition in Europe as 'herbal Viagra'.

Yohimbe herb is known to be effective in dealing with ED. It is useful in many ways:

  • It has the ability to stimulate blood flow by dilating the blood vessels. Increasing blood flow to the penis helps in getting and sustaining an erection.
  • It increases the production of norepinephrine, which is essential in producing an erection.
  • It also works to give strength to diabetics and heart disease patients, who are suffering from infertility due to these diseases.
  • It increases sexual power in some cases and can help the erection last longer.
  • Apart from all this, yohimbe enhances sexual ability and sensation.
