  1. Since man first discovered the connection between an erect penis and fertility, he has persued an interest in natural substances that enhance his sexual performance.

    While exploring the effects of the various plants he found growing around him, he no doubt stumbled upon herbs that when chewed would cause him to have more frequent and harder erections. Herbs that would allow him to maintain his erections longer.  As a result, most cultures of the world now have an assortment of herb-based home remedies for treating sexual impotence.

    From South America to China, India to Rome, the oldest known herbals of the world list a number of indigenous plants known to cure sexual impotence.  Maca root from Peru, horny goat weed from China, commonly-used sex-enhancing herbs — often referred to as aphrodisiacs — provided natural cures for impotence long before artificial products like Viagra and Cialis were conceived.

    Here are a selection of those most widely-touted and readily available.

    > Damiana is a small shrub native to southwestern Texas in the US, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean. It blossoms in early to late summer, producing an edible fruit that tastes similar to fig. Used for centuries by native people of Central and South America for its relaxing effects, Spanish missionaries of the 16th century recorded that Mexican Indians drank damiana tea mixed with cane sugar for use as an aphrodisiac.

    > Maca Root is a small plant indigenous to the Central Andean Region of Peru, growing at altitudes between 1400 to 1500 feet. Said to have been prized by couples in the Peruvian highlands for centuries, maca continues to be used by both men and women having difficulty conceiving children. Eaten on a regular basis, the root is touted as highly effective in curing impotence, improving sexual stamina, and providing the ability to maintain erections longer.

    > Muira Puama is said to be one of the most powerful herbs in the world for treating erectile dysfunction. This native Brazilian shrub has long been known as an effective aphrodisiac and nerve stimulant in South American folk medicine. Its safety and effectiveness in improving sex drive and sexual function has been validated by several clinical studies.

    > Spanish fly (or cantharides) has one of the most documented pedigrees of any aphrodisiac in history. Even described by the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates, various preparations of crushed Spanish flies have been used since the time of early western Mediterranean classical civilizations. Even in modern times, many cultures give it to farm animals to incite them to mate. When ingested, Spanish fly causes inflammation in the genitals and causes male erection. It is, however considered somewhat dangerous since the amount required is minuscule and the difference between the effective dose and the toxic dose is quite narrow.

    > Caterpillar fungus, also commonly known as deer fungus, is a member of the truffle family and found living around bamboo, oak, and pine trees, in cold and snowy marshlands at altitudes above 10,000 feet. For centuries, caterpillar fungus has been prescribed in China for sexual maintenance, especially for support of gonads health. From the Chinese perspective, sexual function, lung function, and kidney function are all inter-related. Thus, it comes as no surprise that caterpillar fungus has been shown effect in treating ailments of all three areas of the body.

    > Horny Goat Weed is listed in 2000-year-old Chinese herbals for its ability to boost fertility, restore sexual desire, and increase stamina.  A leafy plant which grows in the wild at high altitudes, horny goat weed is becoming the herbal remedy of choice for millions of men around the world suffering erectile dysfunction, or just wishing to have stronger, longer lasting erections.

    > Tongkat Ali/Eurycoma Longifolia — referred to as the “Asian Viagra” — is derived from a tree found in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. Used for centuries in treatments for erectile dysfunction in Asia, it is now a common ingredient of commercially-sold herbal blends. Tongkat ali has also been proven to be quite effective in treating sexual impotency all on its own.

    > Tribulus Terrestris, a flowering plant native to warm temperate and tropical regions of southern Europe, southern Asia, Africa, and Australia, has long been used in Chinese and East Indian medicine systems to treat impotency in men. (In the mid-1990s, Eastern European Olympic athletes claimed that tribulus contributed to their success, which first brought it to the attention of men of the US).

    > Yohimbe is an evergreen tree that grows in Nigeria, Cameroon, the Congo, and Gabon, in Africa. Now popular in many parts of the world — especially because of the Internet — yohimbe bark extracts are widely sold online and in health food stores as a natural aphrodisiac to increase sex drive and treat erectile dysfunction.
