Most erectile dysfunction (ED) is not caused by low testosterone levels, instead it is caused by a range of health conditions or psychological factors such as performance anxiety. Therefore, so-called testosterone boosters would have a limited effect on erectile dysfunction for most men.
Some men experience ED as a result of low-libido or low-testosterone levels. If this is the case, testosterone boosters may have some effect, relieving ED. However, it is important to realise that testosterone boosters are not endorsed by any medical bodies, and they are not heavily regulated. If bought from a less reputable retailer, the ingredients may be inconsistent, ineffective or even illegal. 15% of testosterone boosters have been found to contain illegal anabolic steroids, which can help build muscle mass, but with side effects of erectile dysfunction and decreased fertility.
There is limited evidence supporting the claims of testosterone boosters to counteract ED, so if you want to treat your ED, you are better off using a safe and reputable method. Viagra Connect is available over the counter, but there are several other ED medications available via prescription. Viagra (Sildenafil), Cialis (Tadalafil), Levitra (Vardenafil) and Spedra (Avanafil) are all highly effective ED treatments that have undergone proper medical trials before being approved for use.
If you would prefer to avoid medications to treat your ED, you first need to identify the cause of your ED. If your ED has a psychological origin, counselling or other psychological therapies may be most effective. However, if your ED has a physical cause, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity etc. you can make lifestyle changes to help you counteract these conditions. Regular exercise and a healthy balanced diet can improve your blood pressure and help you maintain a healthy weight, potentially reducing the symptoms of ED.
