Magnesium and Erectile Dysfunction Treatment: Supplements vs Little Blue Pills

Thursday, 26 May 2016 09:55 PM

Erectile dysfunction can seriously affect your sex life and relationships, but is it possible that magnesium supplements can help?

Before you ask your doctor to write a prescription for some little blue pills, you should investigate alternative options that can help overcome erectile dysfunction.

Healthline says the ability to get and maintain an erection depends on both the mind and the body.

Erectile dysfunction can be a complicated problem involving many factors such as advancing age, prostate problems, being overweight, underlying issues like heart disease or diabetes, previous injury, heavy drug and alcohol use, smoking, and frequent long-distance cycling.

According to Dr. Craig Maxwell, a physician certified in integrative and osteopathic medicine, erectile dysfunction has so many possible causes, and men who are affected are often too quick to resort to prescription medications such as Cialis and Viagra.

Maxwell says these drugs cannot treat the underlying causes of erectile dysfunction, and they often have many side effects including heartburn, headache, diarrhea, numbness in the arms and legs, seizures, chest pain, loss of color vision, and even heart attack and stroke.

Magnesium deficiency has been linked to erectile dysfunction, says James Rouse, N.D., a well-known naturopathic physician. Magnesium is needed for the metabolism of nitric oxide which helps get and maintain an erection.

But, it is possible to increase magnesium in the body by changing your diet.

Rouse recommends increasing consumption of green leafy vegetables like kale and spinach, nuts and seeds, peas, beans, and grains like brown rice and quinoa. He especially recommends pine nuts because they not only contain magnesium, but they have been linked to improved sexual desire and stamina.

If necessary, you can also take supplements to supply adequate magnesium.

The University of Maryland Medical Center recommends 400 milligrams of magnesium for men between the ages of 19 and 30. For men 31 years and older, a dosage of 420 milligrams is recommended.

However, if you are taking magnesium specifically for erectile dysfunction, you should discuss this with your physician to help determine the proper dosage.
