It is medically recognized that men who are aged 50 and over are at higher risk of heart disease which can lead to sexual problems. When circulation cannot reach the genital region and there is not enough blood for a strong and sustainable erection then sexual dysfunction can arise. Vitamins and antioxidants specific for the heart and the penis can prevent such age-related problems, as well as treat symptoms when they arise. If you are taking prescribed medication, check with your healthcare provider before purchasing male health supplements. Topical formulas and health crèmes may be a safe option for most men.

Vitamin C

Medical evidence shows that vitamin C can help with erectile issues. Vitamin C is essential for circulation to the peripheries, including the hands, feet and the penis. Studies show that vitamin C improves the viscosity of the blood, allowing it to travel through the body more easily.

Vitamin C also reduces cholesterol, protects against atherosclerosis, increases nitric oxide (NO), and reduces the risk of stroke. Researchers from Firat University in Turkey also discovered that vitamin C significantly increases testosterone levels. When problems in the bedroom are linked with heart disease or poor cardiovascular health, vitamin C may be one of the most cost-effective and useful supplements to help.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E, also known as tocopherol, is found in seeds, nuts, grains and wheat germ. For many years scientists have been interested in the effects of vitamin E on the cardiovascular system as it helps to thin the blood, protect against cholesterol and heart disease and supports nerve sensitivity. Scientists from Alexandria University in Egypt studied the effects of vitamin E on erectile dysfunction, and found that vitamin E supplements helped to increase NO production and improve age-related erectile dysfunction. Other studies have shown that vitamin E also has a beneficial effect on testosterone levels, which are vital for energy, libido and male performance. If you are currently taking prescribed medication check with your doctor that vitamin E is right for you.


Popular amongst the bodybuilding and athletic fraternity, L-arginine, plays a big part in healthy cardiovascular function, circulation and exercise performance. It functions as both an amino acid and an antioxidant in the human body. When L-arginine levels are high, the body uses it to produce NO, the enzyme that stimulates blood vessels to dilate. As well as enhancing systemic circulation, NO has a very specific role in a man's nether regions. For erections to occur, NO must first expand blood vessels in the penis, allowing blood to enter and harden the tissues. Without L-arginine, the body may not produce enough NO for healthy erections. Various studies have shown that L-arginine supplementation increases NO levels in the body, and has a clinically beneficial effect on erectile problems.

Penis Health Crèmes

Health crèmes containing antioxidants are beneficial for both heart health and penis health. Supporting your heart with antioxidants in penis crèmes may help to improve your romantic life. Firstly, by acting locally, penis health crèmes aid the look and feel of penis tissues by restoring integrity and antioxidant protection. Secondly, by facilitating improved circulation to the penis and improving blood vessel health. Specialized male health products (most professionals recommend Man1Man oil) contain vitamin C, vitamin E, L-arginine and other antioxidants for balanced, holistic support of male health. These nutrients bypass digestion and go straight to the tissues that really need them.
