What do ischemic heart disease, high blood pressure and erectile dysfunction have in common? Low levels of nitric oxide (NO).
I've finally put together the pieces of the puzzle. Although I don't have heart disease and my ED is/was only an occasional thing, I do have high blood pressure. In the past I found that red beets, especially the juice from red beets (beet root), is extremely effective at lowering my blood pressure. Unfortunately, after about 12 hours or so, the effect of the beets goes away.
Why is nitric oxide critical for our health and especially for maintaining healthy blood pressure and sexual health?
“Released by the inner layer of cells (endothelium) of blood vessels, nitric oxide relaxes the vessels and keeps them flexible, allowing them to dilate, boosting blood flow, and helping to control blood pressure. Nitric oxide also has anti-inflammatory effects and helps prevent platelets and white blood cells from adhering to the lining of blood vessels, thus reducing the risk of plaque development. As we age, our cells produce less nitric oxide, so blood vessels become less flexible, which contributes to hypertension, inflammation in blood vessels, and atherosclerosis (plaque buildup)—that is, cardiovascular disease.”
Now that you know the importance of nitric oxide and why it decreases with age, you probably want to know how you can fix it. The good news is that the body has a number of pathways to produce NO. One of them involves your gut microbiome. The trillions of good bacteria and yeast that live in your gut and account for 80% of your immune system.
For those who are interested in the science and biochemistry behind the process, I am including the process here:
The chemistry for the production of NO involves 3 steps. Consumption of nitrate (NO3) rich foods, the reduction of nitrate to nitrite (NO2) and the further reduction from nitrite to nitric oxide (NO). (Nitric oxide cannot be supplemented since it is an unstable gas and will quickly oxidise back to nitrate and nitrite).
The following is one of several ways in which these reactions can take place in our bodies:
The following reaction converts nitrate (N03 from food with the help of gut bacteria) to nitrite (N02) and water.
Bacterial nitrate reductase:
NO3 – + e– + H+ → NO2 – + H2O
This is then further reduced from nitrite to nitric oxide (NO). This is facilitated with ascorbate (Vitamin C). It's a 2 step process where with the help of vitamin C nitrite is converted to nitrous acid (HN02) and then from there to Nitric Oxide (NO water and a transformed type of vitamin C).
NO2 – + H+ → HNO2
2 HNO2 + Asc → 2 • NO + dehydroAsc + 2 H2O
Higher levels of Nitric oxide help athletic performance, prevents Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, lowers blood pressure, and fixes erectile dysfunction (ED).
What to do in summary if you want to fix ED and lower blood pressure as well as get all of the other benefits of increased levels of NO?
1.Avoid glyphosate since that kills your microbiome and causes all sorts of serious havoc in your body. (Avoid soy and corn that is not organic. Eat as much organic vegetables and fruits as possible. Also, avoid non organic wheat products such as bread and pasta, since that is heavily sprayed in the USA just before harvesting. If you eat imported pasta and bread from Europe, that isn't the case and you should be fine.)
2. Juice or otherwise incorporate organic red beets and green vegetables into your diet.
3. Drink kefir.
Kefir has tons of benefits besides helping in the production of NO. Our gut is said to constitute 80% of our immune system, so we should focus most of our attention on our gut, or more specifically on the microbiome in our gut.
After switching from yogurt to kefir, I saw great improvements in my energy levels, stamina and overall health. Kefir is the heavy weight champion of probiotic foods. It contains over 60 different strains of beneficial bacteria as well as several strains of beneficial yeast. Milk kefir has the ability to colonize your intestines with beneficial bacteria and thus rebuild your microbiome.
Integrating red beets and kefir into my diet on a regular basis has made a big difference to my health and I hope it can do the same for you! Only doing one without the other will only get you partial results. So I highly recommend doing both.
I hope that this article will be posted by EC under Kefir and high blood pressure cures as well.
Thanks for reading and God bless!
I am a 48 year old male that is suffering from.... was suffering from mild erectile dysfunction. Erections were simply not as hard as they were when younger. Morning wood or morning glory was a long thing in the past.
I started doing h2o2 therapy for a health cleanse but could only make it up to 3 drops of 35%h2o2 in a glass of milk 2 times a day. Any more than than 3 for me was revolting. I did this for about one or two weeks. At the same time I was taking a natural testosterone booster.
Within 2 days at night just after going to bed I would get a rock hard erection that seemed to last for 30 minutes or more. After falling asleep would wake up with morning wood at about 5am with same strength and intensity.
I finished my t-boost tablets and stopped the h2o2 a couple of weeks earlier. At that stage I thought it was t-boost, and because I liked feeling like a twenty something down in that department I ordered some more natural t-boost at 60 bucks for 6 weeks supply.
Received my order within a week and started taking the t-boost and guess what.... Not a thing.... Went back to my old ways down stairs.. And just forgot about it....
It had been about a year and I had some left over h2o2 that I thought I should use before it goes off. It was at this time that the penny dropped that it could have been the h2o2 that was the source of my virility 12months earlier.
So on Wednesday night of last week I put 1 drop of 35% H2o2 in a glass of water and drank it.
At about 2am Thursday morning I woke up to a rock hard erection and went back to sleep.
The following night no h2o2 was taken and I was woken at 5am with morning glory.
I am in no doubt that h2o2 is giving me strong and hard erections, with no immediate side effects. I have tried viagra once, and will not use it again. It worked but no where near to what I have experienced with h2o2. Viagra left me dehydrated and with the dirtiest headache the next morning.
I see another poster said he found it helped his Ed. My experience agrees with him completely.
My question is..... Why is this happening. Why does ingesting a drop of H2o2 mixed with water having this effect?
Ultimate Supplement Combo for ED, healthy erections, hard flaccid, and peyronies
OK. I've been messing with every supplement under the sun for about 10 years now, for better health in general and libido and erections. 100's. And I'll tell you what I found, by finding and using the few supplements you're nutritionally deficient in, which could be around 10, your erections will be 100x better than taking all the libido enhancers out there (horny goat weed, maca, etc..) but not correcting these nutritional deficiencies.
So here is my recipe for super erections on a constant basis:
1. Ionic Magnesium - This must be the liquid magnesium. I use the Good State brand as it's cheap and effective. Nearly all other forms of magnesium don't absorb, so don't both buying capsules of magnesium oxide or any other type. Why magnesium? Well people are hugely deficient in it, it is responsible for other 900+ enzymes in your body, one of them being converting GLA > PGE1, which is needed for erections (the injectable ED drug was pure PGE1 called Alprostadil). If you're using Good State brand, take 1/2 a filled cap.
2. Sea Kelp - This is for iodine. And you don't need iodine in any other form (lugos or whatever), sea kelp works period. I have a friend who is very sensitive to iodine, and he can't even take a 1/4 of a tablet of sea kelp because it's too much iodine for him. And with mine and my other friends experiences, sea kelp works wonders for really hard erections and stronger orgasms. (Stronger orgasms for women too). Iodine is extremely important for erections, believe me. But take it via sea kelp, as you can easily go over board other ways. Take 1 tablet.
3. L-carnitine. Now DO NOT get Acetyl l Carnitine. Get either L Carnitine L Tartrate or L Carnitine L Fumarate. The latter 2 are more for the body, the former crosses the BBB too easily and will make you stressed, angry, or headache. L Carnitine L Tartrate has been proven in scientific studies to be better than testosterone injections for ED, and increasing androgen receptors in your body (more receptors allows more testosterone to latch onto). I tell you, l-carnitine is almost like an anabolic steroid, my dumbell bench press went from 30kg to 37.5kg on each arm in 22 days. L-carntitine gives you so much more strength and power. Take 500mg-3000mg, 1 to 6 tablets. I recommend however you just take 1.
4. Vitamin C. You might think I'm crazy for suggesting this, but it works really well. Start taking 2g of vitamin C before sex and you will be amazed how powerful this out of fashion vitamin is. It is a very powerful Nitric Oxide enhancer. Take as much as you can tolerate. It could be 1g every few hours, or 2g every few hours. I personally just take 2g once a day with my other supplements as it's easier that way.
5. Evening Primrose Oil. This has GLA in it, which converts to PGE1. Once you start taking ionic magnesium as well, you will be converting more of this GLA to PGE1 regularly. Also EPO may lower your prolactin, but we take it mainly for the GLA. You DO NOT need to take expensive starflower/borage oil which is meant to have more gla in it, EPO is cheap and very effective. Also note that if starflower/borage oil is not processed correctly, it can keep toxins from the plant which may harm the liver; EPO doesn't have this problem. Take 1-3g a day.
This formula is probably going to cost you $10 a month or less if you took these supplements everyday. Every one of these supplements you can get large supplies of for very cheap, except maybe for l carnitine, which is why I recommend you get the L Carnitine L Tartrate as it's cheaper, and been the one used and proven in scientific studies. If you live in the UK or EU, I get my l carnitine from myprotein.com.
Whatever the case, you wanted erection power. These supplements alone will do better than all the aphrodisiacs put together. You will consistently get hard erections and high libido every time. Also you'll probably cure a lot of other things along the way, especially with the magnesium and sea kelp (iodine). In fact, I've taken many supplements over the years, and have had a few bouts of depression or anhedonic. Since taking liquid magnesium, it's pretty damn hard to ever get depressed. There is an old study out there which claims magnesium can cure depression outright, and in my case, I believe it. Magnesium deficiency is huge, and we know magnesium is a co-factor for over 900+ enzyme in our body, so it's very important. These no point putting anything into your body, if you don't have enough enzymes to break them down into the useful nutrients your body uses.
Anyway, trust me, your money won't be wasted. Buy a months supply of the above supplements and start enjoying better erections and libido.
Though I'm not a woman, I can only image the above supplements helping your libido also.
I am giving feedback on the Borax. It works pretty much instantly and impotance did not come back until my husband quit using it. He quits and start on and off because it makes him feel hungry constantly, I have taken it and had the same effect. (I think it may be starving/killing fungus and candida which is telling his body "eat more", just a thought) I feel his impotence is from fungus overgrowth because he has had an itch on his testicles for over five years and things have helped it but it has never gone away completely. We now are going to start bathing in 1c borax every night for a week and then once a week after that. Last night before our 2nd bath I asked him how his itch was and he realized that he had not thought of it all day and when he felt the testie skin the itchy feeling was there but he was amazed at how much less it itched. We decided to bath in it because I read how your can reap the benifits through your pores. I am bathing with him just so he'll remember to do it and yes he still thinks I'm a babe.
Almost daily, I would have trouble becoming very tired in mid afternoon. Many times I would catch myself falling asleep at my desk. I started 10-15 ML of 35% H202 with 8-10 oz of reverse osmosis water about three weeks ago. I almost immediately I regained my energy and no longer fight sleep in the afternoon. About two days into the processes I notice that well.... my slight problem with ED had gone away. Being skeptical I stopped taking it and it re-appeared. I begain taking it again and it was no coincidence. So what's the reason for this?

IM CURED OF IMPOTENCE AFTER 20 YEARS!!
I started smoking at a early age but quit when i was 19 after smoking for 8 years. I quit but had no idea that i would be suffering from occasional impotence that started in my 20s increased in my thirties & horribly in my forties. I never was a fan of hot or spicy seasoning. But after i read about garlic curing impotence i was willing to give it a shot. But i also combined it with cayenne powder, i took almost a teaspoon of each at about 6pm knowing that i would be making love with wife about 9 pm. Folks i was totally shocked, i havent performed like that since i was 2O & THAT WAS JUST THE FIRST DAY.
The secound day i wanted to try it with two other herbs so i took-2 hawthorne berries capsules- 2 grapeseed seed extract capsules- teaspoon of cayenne pepper & garlic powder (this also i found can be substituted with cayenne capsules & galic capsules from any health store & take 2 of each with the other 2 herbs with juice or water 3 hours before sexual activity! My erections & recovery after orgasms at age 47 great Thank god i suffer no more! ALL 4 HERBS TOGETHER WILL MASTER & DEFEAT ANY TYPE OF ERECTIONAL PROBLEM YOU HAVE WITHOUT THE SIDE EFFECTS YOU GET FROM ED MEDICATION. THANKS FOR STARTING THIS WEBSITE....
Cayenne and Garlic
Garlic is and has been a miracle cure for a entire host of ailments. Candida, which causes a condition known as candida albacons is caused by the continued use of underarm deoderants, toothpaste, mouth washes, many prescription medications and the list goes on. There are enzymes in the body and its blood supply and organs. The use of the above mentioned products kills the enzyme that would otherwise be present to devour yeast in the body. When this happens, the yeast will over produce and is linked to over 98% of all known cancers (Meaning 100% of all known naturally occurring cancers). The enzymes found in raw garlic replaces the body's naturally occurring enzymes and takes on the role of instantly killing the yeast. When this happens, the bloat in your body will then shrink, you will breath much better, your kidneys will love you for garlic consumption. Your liver gets along with garlic very well as does the heart.
Mixing cayenne pepper with the consumption of raw garlic helps to dialate blood vessels all throughout your body. This combination is extremely effective for impotence. I have learned this information from trial and error and have it down now as a proven fact. ENJOY GODS gift of Garlic.
