Are your erections weak, soft, and short lasting?
Before you go and order a package of those famous little blue pills, I suggest you try and learn how to increase blood flow to the penis naturally.
Well, for one thing, all that Viagra, Cialis, and other pills do is increase blood flow to the penis, they only do it in an unnatural, potentially unsafe way.
And, secondly, if you improve your penile blood flow naturally you’ll have better, stronger, more lasting erections.
Great, let’s continue then.
The problem with Viagra is that it doesn’t actually increase blood flow. All it does is open up your arteries, artificially.
A little known fact is that Viagra was not actually to cure erectile dysfunction. Researchers were studying how to cure angina (no, not vagina), which is a heart condition that prevents blood flow to the heart by constricting the blood vessels around the heart.
Scientists were looking for a pill that opens up blood vessels. They found their solution in Viagra, but they also found that all their test subjects were walking around with huge boners.
A smart scientist (who wanted to make a lot of money) suggested they sell Viagra as an erection pill, and they went on to make millions of dollars.
This is all good in well, but it’s clear to see why Viagra is just a band-aid solution. It works to artificially open your blood vessels, not improve your circulation system.
If you use Viagra, you’ll become dependent on it for getting erections. This is obviously inconvenient. Instead, we’ll focus on improving blood flow, naturally.
To increase your penile blood flow, you’ll need to boost your nitric oxide levels. Nitric oxide is a molecule that enhances blood circulation in your entire body and makes it easier to get more blood to your penis (and other body parts).
Here are a couple of ways you can increase your nitric oxide levels:
Try Some Exercise
Besides being good for you overall, exercise is also great in boosting your nitric oxide levels.
Pretty much every type of exercise will increase your NO levels, from walking to lifting weights in the gym and everything in between.
I’m a big fan of strength training. Not only are you getting bigger, stronger and boosting your nitric oxide, you are also increasing your testosterone levels, which is one of the most important hormones in the male body.
Whether you lift weights or do cardio, the most important goal is to get your heart racing. Exercising your heart during training will increase blood flow during activity and hours after, so any work you accomplish at the gym will translate over in the bedroom.
Eat the Right Foods
The wrong foods clout your arteries and make it impossible for you to get enough blood to your penis to maintain a solid erection.
The right foods boost your NO levels and dilate your blood vessels, meaning more blood can be pumped into your penis. That results in rock-hard erections that last seemingly forever.
So, what are the best nitric oxide foods?
Here’s a short list:
Seems like Popeye was right.
Not only is spinach one of the top nitric oxide foods, it is also one of the best foods when it comes to boosting testosterone levels – so it packs a double punch.
Now, the only problem is that some people don’t like the taste and the thought of eating a pound of spinach a day makes them nauseous.
Here’s a quick way to deal with that: Don’t eat spinach. Drink it.
Or, in simple terms, buy a juicer and juice spinach with some other delicious vegetables. It’s a much easier (and tastier) solution.
Here’s something so you don’t think that every nitric oxide food has to taste awful.
But be careful when buying dark chocolate. You’ll want to get the high-quality cacao – not the cheap, processed crap they mostly sell in supermarkets.
And don’t overeat the chocolate, too. The point isn’t to stuff yourself full; it’s to eat just enough (as a dessert) to boost your nitric oxide levels.
This is yet another superfood that boosts nitric oxide AND testosterone levels at the same time.
But be careful. Walnuts are extremely high in calories (100 grams of walnuts carries ~600 kcal) so eat them sparingly and in small quantities.

Take (Legit) Supplements
In a perfect world, everybody would eat the best foods all the time, exercise every day and sleep 8 hours a day every night. There would be no need for supplements.
But, alas, we don’t live in a perfect world. Sometimes we slip, and we mess up our diet. Other times we’re just lazy and don’t go to the gym for weeks at the time.
That’s where supplements come in. Unlike Viagra and other ED pills, supplements are a natural way to…well, supplement your dietary and exercise regiment.
Some of the best nitric oxide boosting supplements are Ginseng, Cnidium, and horny Goat Weed.

One of the problems with erectile dysfunction is that your body’s programming gets out of whack. Even if you increase blood flow through the rest of the body, this doesn’t guarantee that this blood will circulate to your penis.
How many athletes have erectile dysfunction? Plenty. Just because you have good blood flow through your body does not mean you will cure your erectile dysfunction.
You see, sex is much more than a physical act. It’s a mental and emotional activity that requires your entire mind and body to work together to produce pleasure for you and your partner.
Although all the tips discussed here will improve blood flow through your body, you still need to help get this blood to your penis. To fix this, I suggest getting as much practice as possible.
Getting an erection is a lot like flexing a muscle. When you flex your biceps, all you’re doing is shuttling blood into that muscle. Try it out right now, and hold the flex for as long as you can. It’s not that easy!
Similarly, getting an erection requires blood flow to your penis. To get better at “flexing” your penis, you need to do it as often as possible.
Have you ever seen big guys like Terry Crews who can flex their chest muscles, while most men can’t? That’s because they trained their body to send blood flow to the muscles.
This is how I want you to think about your erection. It takes careful programming for your body to know to send blood to the penis.
To fix this issue, practice. If you have a girlfriend or wife, have sex as much as possible. I mean that.
Unless you can’t get it up that much, don’t worry. Make up for lost sex sessions by masturbating more.
Now, don’t go abusing the masturbation too much. If you’re dealing with erectile dysfunction, you’ve got to practice edging.
In short, edging is where you masturbate until you get to the edge of orgasm….back off…then continue until you get to that point again.
For more information on edging, click here.
Edging is crucial for guys dealing with erectile dysfunction for the same reason flexing a muscle is good for its size.
Edging keeps you masturbating for twenty or thirty minutes (or more), and all that blood in your penis will train your body to do the same during sex.
Practice edging, have sex as much as possible, and you’ll be back to having regular erections in no time.
Don’t Worry, Be Happy
If you’re still having trouble staying hard, it could be your brain that’s standing in the way.
Believe it or not, your brain plays a massive role in the quality of your erections, most notably because of stress.
Stress is a reaction emotion that occurs when you’re in trouble.
Imagine you’re a zebra sitting in the jungle. Everything’s cool, you’re relaxed, until you suddenly see a cheetah sprinting towards you at 60 miles per hour. Right then, stress kicks in, and your…
…heart rate increases
…hair sticks up
These reactions help you to avoid running from the cheetah. Stress also acts to cut out “unnecessary” bodily functions that won’t serve you when you’re running from danger. This includes the immune system, digestive system, and even…yes…your erection.
Stress causes your body to think that having an erection is unnecessary. Think about the last time you came home from work frustrated and riddled with stress. Were you in the mood for sex?
Lowering stress is not an easy activity, but it can definitely be done. Start by adding the following activities in your life:
- More sleep
Then, make sure that you’re conscious to avoid working too much or burning out. Only you know much work you can take on, so monitor your emotions, and don’t overdo it.
If you find yourself stressed out in the moment, practice deep breathes, watch a funny YouTube clip, or go for a walk. Stress can turn on in an instant, and if you can learn to turn it off, you’ll be well on your way to a happier life (complete with stronger erections).
Bonus Tip: An Instant Erection Boosting Drink
I saved the best for last.
There is one drink that, when you take it, will almost instantly boost your erections.
Not only that, but this drink is cheap, easy to make, and 100% natural.
Sounds too good to be true, right?
Well, it’s not.
This drink exists and it’s beet juice.
Beets are one of the highest nitric oxide boosting vegetables. But, eating two or more beets a day is a challenge even for those who like the taste.
So, the next best thing for you to do is simply buy the beets, juice them, and drink it up.
Drink that juice every day and in less than a week you’ll notice the erection boosting effect they have.
Oh, and one last thing. Drinking this much beet juice might turn your pee red (or pinkish). Don’t panic – you’re not bleeding, it’s normal. It differs from a person to person, but it’s nothing to worry about. (Of course, I’m not a doctor, so if you’re still worried check with your doctor.
