There is new research indicating that increased antioxidant usage may play a role in treatment and prevention of erectile dysfunction.

What causes ED?

Although originated by the nervous system, an erection is achieved due to the effect of increased amounts of Nitric oxide released from the endothelial lining in the blood vessels within the penis, whereby increasing blood flow.

Maintaining an erection, obviously depends on this increased blood flow and studies have shown that endothelial function is inhibited by free radical damage and oxidative stress, which is caused by many factors in our daily lives, such as poor diet, smoking and stress, to name a few.

Latest studies have shown that increased antioxidant usage can reverse this oxidative stress. They do this by neutralizing the free radicals responsible for oxidative stress and endothelial damage in the relevant blood vessels.

Antioxidants can be found in a number of common foods including grapes, blueberries and cherries, however since such large amounts of these foods must be consumed in order to achieve the benefits, many researchers are suggesting that antioxidants be taken in the form of a high potency supplement.

Acai to the Rescue!

The latest research being conducted at several universities has discovered that the Acai berry, a grape-sized berry which is grown in Central and South America, has even higher levels of antioxidants than almost any other food source.

Interestingly, this potent, little purple berry has been used by the people living in Brazil for centuries as a natural aphrodisiac and it has been shown to not only increase the level of male testosterone but also to boost the female libido, as well. 

In a recent trip to Brazil, NBC’s Matt Lauer noted that the native people referred to the Acai berry as the “Viagra o the Amazon” in part, because of its rich concentration of carbohydrates, iron, proteins and healthy fats which helps to fuel activity while at the same time, the high concentration of antioxidants helps to regulate blood sugar levels thereby sustaining levels of energy for an extended period of time.

Now you may be wondering where to buy acai berry supplements?

There are a number of companies that advertise their products and will try and confuse you about the ingredients in their products, so be sure that the supplement you choose contains 100% pure berries and comes from a well recommended, reliable source.
