Are you, a family member, perhaps a patient of yours taking anti-depressants? Did you know that one of the leading causes of poor performance in the romantic encounter department is the use of these drugs? Especially those in the SSRI (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors) category.
Sort of a double whammy isn’t it? First, for whatever reason (and of course the causes of depression are varied and numerous), you are taking medication to give you a more positive outlook on life. To improve your relationships, ability to function at work as well as play, brighten the future if you will. And now this!
Lackluster performance in the bedroom. That REALLY is depressing! However there is an alternative. Over 117,000 articles and research papers written in the last couple of decades showing how improving the uptake and release of nitric oxide in your body not only significantly enhances blood flow and supply….it can help fix your sex drive!
In fact the original science of this discovery, so important that the scientists involved received the Nobel Prize for physiology, was taken by the drug companies and used to create male enhancement drugs like Cialis, Levitra and the big daddy of them all….Viagra.
This was good news for many however it was soon to be discovered that the risks and benefits were truly a double edged sword. This “shotgun blast” of synthetic nitric oxide did indeed blast open the blood vessels, especially in certain important areas of the body related to sexual drive and performance, however this artificial effect was dangerous to many and even fatal to some.
In the meantime a great deal of money was, and continues to be, made. In fact the performance of Viagra in the economic department peaked at nearly $2 billion in 2008 alone (according to Pfizer 2010 economic report).
This gain however is not without cost. Side effects alone of the drug are not easily dismissed. Of greater cost I fear is the diversion of science, interest and innovation in the wellness field. While some companies had the vision early on to research and market products that naturally enhance the innate ability of the body to produce nitric oxide, these endeavors were almost completely ignored by mainstream medicine.
Thankfully that is changing. Not only are highly credible scientists and researchers looking closely at the holistic and nutritional applications of this science, now there are many products available that are providing healthy answers to this problem. They do an excellent job of emulating Mother Nature’s intricate plan of providing the heart and life saving benefits of whole food sources of the building blocks of nitric oxide. More is being discovered each year, more people are finding the wisdom of restoring whole food sources rather than taking the risks and enduring the effects of pharmaceutical intervention. Exercise, yoga, meditation, chiropractic and high quality supplements are providing the means to longer life and with it the quality of life to truly enjoy the journey.
Take a look yourself! You and those you love will thank you for it!
IN-JOY your love life!
