Hello Len,

Many thanks for your post.

There are few natural ingredients that may be of assistance to you.

DHEA – is a natural hormone produced by the adrenal glands, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) can be converted to both estrogen and testosterone in the body. Various studies (not conducted by Blackmores) have indicated supplementation of DHEA were more likely to achieve and sustain an erection.

L-Arginine - an amino acid naturally present in the body, L-arginine helps make nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels to support a successful erection. Various studies (not conducted by Blackmores) suggest that taking 5 grams a day of L-arginine experienced significant improvements in sexual function combined with pycnogenol, a plant product from tree bark, restored a percentage of sexual ability.

Acupuncture - a few studies found that acupuncture improved the quality of erection and restored sexual activity.
I hope the above information has been of assistance to you.
