Erectile dysfunction is often a problem with circulation. Because it is an early indicator of problems with blood flow, the presence of erectile dysfunction may forewarn future cardiac problems.
Various herbs and nutrients have been studied. The Asian Journal of Andrology (2007; 9(2): 241-4) studied the effect of
Korean red ginseng in a double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving 60 subjects with erectile dysfunction. At the
end of the 12 week study, the group receiving 1000 mg of Korean Red Ginseng 3x per day had improvement of symptoms according to the five item version of the International Index of
Erectile Function (IIEF-5).
