What about Herbal Viagra?

Viagra is a drug used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). ED is a medical problem with grave consequences for those who suffer from it. For example, men with ED often feel inadequate and their self-esteem plummets to low levels. In fact, it may even cause severe depression in them. The Cleveland Clinic estimates that 40% of all males aged 40 years and above suffer from ED. It also claims that three-fourths of the men above 70 years old experience it.herbal viagra

Some people have come up with Herbal Viagra as a natural means of solving this problem instead of using pharmaceutical products to deal with it. The question is whether Herbal Viagra is effective. Perhaps, even a more important question is whether it’s safe.

What is Herbal Viagra?

Its name comes from Viagra, a renowned ED drug that many men trust and appreciate. The use of this name is a marketing technique because many people will think that it comes from Pfizer, the company that makes Viagra. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Pfizer does not produce Herbal Viagra.

In fact, the ingredients found in Viagra and those present in Herbal Viagra are fundamentally different. Knowing these differences helps you understand why Viagra is an approved drug while Herbal Viagra is not. It also gives you an idea of why using Herbal Viagra may not always be a good idea.

The ingredients found in Herbal Viagra

It is important to first note one specific ingredient that you will not find in Herbal Viagra. Sildenafil is not present there. Sildenafil, the main active component of the actual Viagra, inhibits one particular enzyme in the male body that regulates the flow of blood to the penis. Doing so helps one to maintain an erection for a longer period than he would without the aid of sildenafil. When the substance was first discovered, the researchers were planning to use it for the treatment of pulmonary hypertension. Then, during clinical trials, one rather interesting side effect showed itself: men tended to experience a strong erection, which changed the future of sildenafil.

As you can now tell, the development of sildenafil is scientifically clear. In contrast, the historical development of Herbal Viagra is unclear. Those who market it claim that it contains Cordyceps Sinensis, Polygonatum Verticillatum, Curculigo Rhizome, Desert Cistache, and Rhodiola Sacra. These marketers may sell it under different labels including horny goat weed, Yohimbine, and Korean red ginseng. Currently, there is no medical study substantiating the claim that these drugs can effectively treat erectile dysfunction.

However, some Herbal Viagra products may contain adulterated sildenafil. In fact, researchers claim that nearly 60% of the sildenafil consumed in the Netherlands comes from illegal sources.

Precautions

First of all, it should be noted that since no proper studies have been conducted on Herbal Viagra, it's impossible to tell whether it's safe or not. Despite the fact that Herbal Viagra usually contains just natural herbal ingredients, it still can be potentially risky. For example, it may be toxic especially if consumed in large quantities.

So far, none of the products that call themselves Herbal Viagra has been approved be the FDA. Of course, it doesn't necessarily mean that Herbal Viagra is dangerous. However, no one can guarantee that it’s absolutely safe either.
