Why did Garlic supplementation cure my ED?
I am 20 years old, healthy and active, in a loving relationship of two years. In the past 5 or 6 months I’ve had very very bad ED, meaning that usually I can’t even get it up at all and when I do, it’s not very hard and only lasts while there is some physical stimulation. It is completely limp and dead down there.
I’ve tried every natural remedy out there, starting with self diagnosis and experimenting with different things to single out the actual cause. I tried daily exercise and cardio for 3 months while cleaning up my diet, watching calories, eating lots of lean meats and healthy fats. I’m a healthy weight and have a muscular build with low body fat. In three months I went through a body transformation and gained a lot of muscle mass, but no improvements downstairs.
Went to a doctor and got my testosterone levels checked: I was fine. In fact I have plenty of testosterone. Makes sense seeing as how I was eating plenty of healthy fats, took 50mg zinc tablets every night, and was setting squat PRs weekly.
Then I tried herbal supplements. I literally tried everything, from Cayenne pepper for blood flow to Horny Goat Weed for libido. Nothing. Even L-Arginine supplementation at 5–10 grams a day for a month showed no improvements, and L-Arginine is generally regarded as the “Natural Viagra” due to its effect on NO levels. Tribulus, another NO and libido booster also had no effect on me.
I also tried some herbs for Anxiety (which I have) and Depression (which I DON’T), such as St. John’s Wort, Kava Kava, Ashwagandha, and many different teas. Nothing.
I thought maybe I had a mineral deficiency so I cut out caffeine for 3 months and supplemented Magnesium, still nothing.
So that crosses out diet, weight, testosterone, blood flow, libido, and NO levels.
After many months of trying to find the root cause of my ED, I read that erection problems are often signs of heart problems, so I looked into that. I read that Garlic improves blood flow by relaxing and dilating blood vessels and lowers bad cholesterol, so it is often recommended to people with heart problems. Garlic helps prevent blood clotting and clears blogged arteries with built up plaque from high cholesterol. The recommended dosage is one clove per day, so instead, I picked up a bottle of 1000mg Garlic pills at Wal-Mart and took 8 pills hoping for faster results. Coincidentally, I was seeing my girlfriend the very next day, so needless to say, I really wanted those fast results. And when the time came…. Hardest erection I’ve had in MONTHS. I needed absolutely no physical stimulation to get it up and maintained it for an hour at 100% hardness. Why is this?
It’s my best guess that I had high cholesterol or possibly I had built up plaque in vessel walls that were keeping the blow from flowing freely to my penis to get an erection. Before taking Garlic I couldn’t even achieve an erection through self stimulation, with or without porn. My assumption is that Garlic cleared me of excess cholesterol build up and now blood flow is back to normal.
The funny thing is, I recently got a prescription for actual ED medication, which will probably never be filled out now, thanks to Garlic.
So, why did GARLIC have such a profound and immediate effect on my body, is my diagnosis correct or is there more to this that someone could fill me in on? Thanks so much for anyone more knowledgeable on this topic who can help me!
