The magic blue pill, Viagra, took the World by storm: it was approved by the American Food and Drugs Administration, the FDA, in 1998 and since then billions of the magic blue tablets have been sold worldwide.
If we take into consideration that close to 10% of all sexually active men suffer from erectile dysfunction, then the success of this extremely effective treatment is justified. However, even after all the clinical trials and extensive research, the magic blue pill wasn’t without its shortcomings. Close to 3% of the men that take it experience side effects such as headaches, nausea, flashing, nasal congestion, abnormal vision and in some cases even serious heart problems.
And this is why many men, suffering from impotence, started looking for natural Viagra substitutes.
Why use natural remedies though? What are their advantages?
For one the natural remedies are almost always made of herbs, contain no chemicals, and have little or no side effects at all. Another advantage is that they can easily and anonymously be purchased from or online or offline stores, without the need of a prescription. Many men would rather buy the herbal solutions anonymously online rather than going to the pharmacies with their Viagra prescriptions.
Another great advantage of the natural ED remedies is their price tag. As of the time of this writing the Viagra pills are sold for anything between $8 and $12 per pill in the USA. For the same price a man can purchase herbal solution that will last for a week or even longer.
However, are the natural Viagra substitutes as effective as the synthetic drugs?
Let’s see how the erection actually works: in almost all cases the erectile problems are caused by the reduced blood flow to the penis – this results in attaining no erection at all or getting an erection that is not hard enough or doesn’t last long enough in order to complete the sexual act. This is why almost all the synthetic drugs and the herbal solutions alike target certain chemicals in order to induce the relaxation of the smooth muscles of the penile arteries; this leads to better blood flow and healthy and strong erection.
Probably the three best-known natural Viagra substitutes are VigaPlus, CaliPlus and Niagra. The first two work extremely fast – only after 15 minutes of the intake of the pills and their effect is long-lasting. The erection is not “automatic”, but rather achieved in a normal fashion – after sexual stimulation and it goes away after the sex act.
Even though the synthetic drugs and the herbal solutions are very effective they do not work for every man in the same way. It is estimated that the success rate is close to 75%, but we encourage you to always seek a qualified medical help before undertaking one treatment or other. If natural remedy has been purchased always stick to the prescribed dosage: most of these pills, and the pharmaceutical drugs for that matter, should not be used as recreational drugs; they have been developed with one goal in mind – to help men who suffer from erectile dysfunction to lead normal sex life and this is what they should be used for.
