Are Beets A Natural Viagra (Sildenafil)?

Updated Jul,2020

Beets are naturally rich in nitrates, which help blood vessels to relax and open up. This allows more blood to flow throughout the body, including the penis, making it easier to get and keep an erection.

How do beets treat ED?

While there's no concrete evidence to show that beets are a definitive treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED), there are many men who have successfully improved their sex life by regularly drinking beet juice.

Beets naturally help your body produce nitric oxide, one of the most important molecules for overall blood vessel health. They work to relax the inner muscles of your blood vessels, causing the vessels to widen.

Blood is able to flow much better through these opened up vessels, a crucial element in achieving and maintaining an erection.

If you're currently taking any prescribed ED treatment, do not combine it with beet juice. Both of these treatments relax the blood vessels and too much can cause your blood pressure to drop to dangerous levels.

It's important you talk to a licensed physician before undertaking any treatment—natural or medicinal.

Are there any other natural remedies for ED?

Although there have been very few studies conducted on the safety and effectiveness of these natural remedies, they have shown to improve sexual health overtime. If you prefer a natural alternative to medicinal or surgical ED treatments, consider these:

Herbs and Fruits

  • L-arginine: Found naturally in food, it's been suggested that high doses of L-arginine opens up blood vessels and allows more blood to flow to your penis. The downside? Your body metabolizes it pretty fast, so you'll need to take a lot of it, frequently.
  • Ginkgo: Ginkgo may increase blood flow to the penis, which could improve ED symptoms. However, this supplement might increase the risk of bleeding. If you're taking blood thinners or have a bleeding disorder, you should speak to your doctor before taking gingko.
  • Ginseng: Korean red ginseng is a widely used herbal ED remedy. That’s partly because it’s been shown in studies to do some good— even though researchers still can’t quite explain how it works.
  • Pomegranate: While notorious for packing a ton of nutrients, there's been some evidence that this fruit helps arteries to expand and remain supple.

Lifestyle Changes

Certain activities or lack of activity can have an impact on ED, so before trying medications or natural remedies for ED, you might want to consider making some lifestyle changes, including:

  • Exercising regularly: Regular exercise has proven to be effective in improving overall health. For ED, the improved blood pressure, blood flow, and overall health benefits may drastically reduce the risk of developing ED.
  • Eating a healthier diet: In a similar way to exercise, eating nutritious food may help reduce the risk of heart disease, clogged arteries, and diabetes, which are known risk factors for ED.
  • Quitting smoking and reducing alcohol intake: Both of these activities bring a number of potential health risks, including ED. Reducing or eliminating these activities may help stop ED problems.

Can you cure ED without medication?

If you're like most men, you might find it difficult to speak about your ED. Seeking OTC or natural remedies might seem like a better (discreet) way to treat yourself, but it's important to make sure you have the right treatment plan for your needs.

Consulting a healthcare professional is always the best idea, rather than making decisions on your own. Not only is it much safer, you'll get expert guidance on how to treat your ED effectively.

Your doctor works with you to outline a treatment plan that you feel comfortable with, whether that's an all-natural approach, or with a prescription ED medicine such as Viagra (Sildenafil). There's no need to feel embarrassed, just know there are many options available to help treat your ED.

How do you buy Viagra (Sildenafil)?

If you're experiencing one or more symptoms of ED, consider these 2 options to get your prescription.

  • Visit your doctor: You can see your doctor to talk about your symptoms. It's best to go to a doctor that you feel comfortable speaking to about your sex life because face-to-face consultations can feel uncomfortable and invasive.
  • Book a quick online consultation: Speak with one of our independent, online physicians. This is a safe, easy, and more comfortable alternative to making a traditional doctor's appointment and then picking up your prescription from the pharmacy.
