You go to the gym several times a week. Your time there is well invested. You wear the results of your hard work on your body and are proud of what you have achieved and continue to maintain.
But despite your impressive health and good habits, you find it difficult to get and maintain an erection firm enough to enjoy sex to the fullest.
If that sounds like you, save your sweat for the gym and don't stress out. There are solutions.
What causes ED in otherwise physically healthy people?
dr Eric Miller, MD
It's not uncommon for people who are physically fit to still have trouble getting or keeping an erection. There are many factors that can play a role in addition to your general health. One or more of these causes may be causing your ED:
- Restricted blood flow: As we age, our blood vessels that carry blood to the penis can harden, leading to a restriction in blood flow. Regular consumption of foods high in saturated fat and sodium can cause this to happen over time, even if you're cardio training like a champ.
- Drug side effects: There are about 100 different drugs that can cause sexual dysfunction in men. Commonly prescribed medications that can cause ED include SSRIs and ADHD medications that contain stimulants as the active ingredient.
- Psychological factors: In order for an erection to occur, the brain must send arousal signals to the penis. Mental illnesses like Sexual Performance Anxiety (SPA) and PTSD can prevent the brain from sending these signals to the penis.
- Physical injuries: An injury that affects sex and causes pain can prevent the signals of arousal in the brain from reaching the penis. Anticipating pain can also prevent the brain from sending these signals in the first place.
What treatment options are there?
dr Eric Miller, MD
There are different ways to treat erectile dysfunction. As a doctor and fitness fanatic, I've narrowed the list down to my top two professional recommendations for ED treatments for otherwise physically fit men with erectile dysfunction symptoms:
1. Rugiet ready
As far as drug intervention goes, Rugiet Ready is my top recommendation.
Sublingual melt preparations like Rugiet Ready dissolve under the tongue, where the drug goes directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the liver and digestive system. This allows results up to 5X faster as pills and even chewable tablets.
They can also contain more than one ingredient, allowing you to have more than one mechanism of action to treat your ED.
For example, Rugiet Ready contains individual ratios of Sildenafil (Generic Viagra) + Tadalafil (Generic Cialis) + APO. Sildenafil and Tadalafil are both PDE5 inhibitors while APO is a dopamine promoter. This means that Rugiet Ready works for them body and brain.
Because Rugiet Ready works on both the body and the brain, it's a great option for those suffering from ED due to psychological factors that prevent you from becoming aroused.
