Panax ginseng: Also known as red ginseng, it has been used to treat erectile dysfunction since long. It works by dilating blood vessels and increasing the blood flow to the penis.

Weight loss: If you are looking to lose weight, and need some motivation then let this be your line: Obesity decreases testosterone levels, and testosterone is important for sexual health. Losing weight also helps in you gaining more confidence. Experts say that people feel more attractive when they lose weight, and it makes them feel turned on, and that makes them open to having sex.
More sleep: Losing out on the recommended hours of sleep can also contribute to erectile dysfunction. To begin with, not sleeping lowers testosterone levels, which damages normal sexual function. Also, it raises the body's stress response. You have a simple fix: Get at least 8-9 hours of sleep every night.
Watch less porn: Don t get us wrong! Porn has a lot of health benefits. But if you are seeing that you are only getting erection when you are alone and not with your partner, then that s a problem. And that can be attributed to your porn habits. Experts say that those men who have trouble need to understand that their sense of inadequacy isn't realistic, because their expectations are based on porn.
