Many men who suffer from erectile dysfunction find little to no results or worse, diminished results over time. Studies have shown traditional prescription medications for erectile dysfunction have a 60% failure rate.

The pills do work for some men – Viagra, Levitra, Cialis – they work more to hold the blood in the penis. When you take a pill of one on those three – Viagra, Levitra, Cialis – nothing happens until you’re in a sexual situation. They don’t automatically cause you to have an erection all of a sudden therefore the brain has to be interested in a sexual act before anything occurs.

Low Testosterone is common protocol to fix erectile dysfunction. However it is not a solution for every man. Testosterone is a hormone that’s used to boost all male functions, but it turns out that many of the erection issues men face is related to low testosterone. In some cases if we can boost testosterone levels, it will allow the brain to push more blood to the penis, thus giving a stronger more full erection.

There are many reasons why these two common solutions don’t work well long term for men. Stress is a big one. It causes increased cortisol, which tells the brain to shut down the production of testosterone. This prevents the brain from signaling to release blood to the penis.

Everyday medicines counteract the body’s ability to get an erection. Medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes further reduce the body’s natural ability to get and maintain an erection.

The key is to use medications that bypass the brains need to control the erection function in men. Utilizing a locally applied medication in the penis region is one of the best solutions available to men and their partners.

It is a safe, FDA approved and is the second line of recommended protocol by the American Medical Association, second only to the traditional oral medications.
