A: The results of a study have shown
that DHEA taken daily can significantly improve sexual performance.
L-arginine has also been shown to improve sexual performance in men with problems developing erections.
A slight amount of research suggests that ginkgo may be useful for impotence due to poor blood
circulation and that also useful in reversing the impotence caused by certain types of antidepressant
Many other herbs are also reputed to improve sexual function, including ashwagandha, damiana, ginseng,
muira puama, pygeum, and suma. However, there is as yet no real evidence that they work.
Also, zinc deficiency is known to negatively affect sexual function. Because zinc is one of the most
commonly deficient minerals in the diet, it is logical to assume that supplementation with zinc may be
helpful for some men.
