When men become sexually aroused, hormones, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels all work with one another to create an erection. Nerve signals, sent from the brain to the penis, stimulate muscles to relax. This, in turn, allows blood to flow to the tissue in the penis.
Once the blood fills the penis and an erection is achieved, the blood vessels to the penis close off so that the erection is maintained. Following sexual arousal, the blood vessels to the penis open up again, allowing the blood to leave.
At some point in a man’s life, he may have difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection. Erection problems occur when you can’t achieve or maintain an erection that’s firm enough to have sexual intercourse. That is what we call weak erection or erectile dysfunction using the medical terminology.
Various risk factors can contribute to erectile dysfunction, including: Medical conditions, particularly diabetes or heart conditions. Tobacco use, which restricts blood flow to veins and arteries, can — over time — cause chronic health conditions that lead to erectile dysfunction.
The treatment for weak erection can be in two ways, natural remedies and home remedies.
L-arginine is a natural remedy, it is an amino acid, which is a building block of protein. It is a vasodilator, meaning that it can help open up the blood vessels. In theory, this could increase blood flow to the penis and help produce an erection.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) helps create sex hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. Natural DHEA levels decrease as a person gets older, which may cause a decrease in sexual function.
Ginseng, or Panax ginseng, is a popular home remedy. Certain chemicals in this plant may promote the relaxation of the body’s smooth muscles, helping produce an erection.
4. Regular exercise (Home remedies).
Exercise can benefit ED by improving blood pressure, blood flow, mood, and stamina. It is also an effective method for improving overall health.
5. A healthful diet (Home remedies)
A healthful diet helps keep the circulatory system, and the rest of the body, healthy. Eating a varied, nutrient-rich diet reduces the risk of heart disease, clogged arteries, obesity, and diabetes, all of which are risk factors for ED.
6. Reduce smoking and alcohol (Home remedies).
Smoking is a major risk factor for ED as it reduces blood flow to the penis. Drinking excess alcohol can also have an effect.
7. Reduce stress ( Home remedies)
Stress and anxiety can have a significant effect on sexual desire and erectile function. Common sources of stress include health, work, finances, and relationships.
