The ability to get and maintain an erection may be aided by the use of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), ginseng, and supplementation with the amino acid L-arginine. These remedies have been studied in people with some positive results and are generally recognized as safe, according to Mayo Clinic.
Erectile dysfunction is defined as having long-term difficulty in maintaining an erection sufficiently firm for sexual intercourse. Additional home remedies for ED include Ginkgo biloba, yohimbe, and horny goat weed but the use of these remedies is discouraged due to risky side effects or lack of efficacy, according to Mayo Clinic. Patients may also wish to discuss pharmaceutical treatments for ED with your doctor.
