Natural remedy reignites spark in bedroom Feb. 25, 2012

Who hasn’t heard by now of the prescription drugs Viagra and Cialis for erectile dysfunction (ED)? Huge numbers of males are now happier campers than they were when this medication was not available. This week, a unique approach for those who are not quite ready to admit they need ED drugs.

Several months ago I wrote about a new product Neo40. I thought this natural remedy was too good to be true when I first read about it. Researchers reported that it decreased the risk of hypertension, osteoporosis and diabetes complications, lowered high cholesterol, eased the pain of arthritis, assisted the immune system in fighting infection and helped those who fall asleep in the afternoon.

But it was hard to label this report as utter nonsense. After all, three of the researchers had received the prestigious Nobel Prize for this discovery. Louis J. Ignarro, one of the winners, says, “There may be no disease process where this miracle molecule does not have a protective role.” Now it appears ED can also be added to the list.

Dr. Nathan Bryan at the University of Texas says the ingredient that helps all these problems is nitric oxide (NO). Bryan, who is a world authority on NO, says researchers have known for 100 years that nitroglycerine eases coronary artery spasm by increasing the blood supply to the heart’s muscle. But until the Nobel Prize was awarded, no one knew this was due to nitric oxide.

Early in life we produce large amounts of NO in the endothelial lining of blood vessels. But after age 40, the production of NO decreases, causing arteries to constrict. This results in hypertension and inflammation in coronary arteries that kills one North American every 37 seconds.

But lack of NO also causes frustration in the bedrooms of the nation. That’s because adequate amounts of nitric oxide are also necessary to produce dilation of penile arteries. This allows sufficient amounts of blood to enter the penis resulting in an erection. The same applies to women. Without proper blood flow to the clitoris, they cannot experience orgasm or increased sexual sensitivity.

One thing surprised me. It was the number of readers, and some friends, who contacted me following publication of the Neo40 column. They too experienced a pleasant surprise after starting Neo40. As one reader wrote, “Now there’s no need to turn the lights down low, light a candle, and put on mood music to get excited about a little sex since I’ve been taking Neo40.”

Another said, “I’ve been too embarrassed to ask my family doctor for a prescription for an ED drug. Now, Neo40 has just added the spark I needed. How can I ever thank you for writing about it?”

This response indicates a large number of couples could benefit from Neo40 stimulation long before they require more potent ED drugs.

Some readers may wonder what the difference is between Neo40 and erectile dysfunction drugs. ED drugs work by blocking a chemical to allow more blood to enter the penis. But, as many users of ED drugs know, this physiological process is associated with a number of side effects which can be troublesome.

Neo40, on the other hand, does not block or interfere with any chemical process. Rather, this natural remedy stimulates the endothelial lining of penile arteries to produce more NO. This in turn dilates penile arteries and allows more blood to flow into the penis without side effects.

Dr. Bryan says that most people over 40 need two tablets of Neo40 daily until the level of NO increases, then one tablet daily. But he adds that each person reacts differently. Some people get an immediate response while it takes others months using two tablets daily to achieve results. To discover the level of nitric oxide in the blood, an easy saliva test is available using a small test strip.

Neo40 is not available in Canada. But it can be obtained in the U.S. by calling the toll-free number 1-855-636-4040. For more information see the website www.neogenis.com.
