Uncommon erectile dysfunction treatments – Key foods for stronger erections

The question of which foods help having stronger erections is coupled to the question of how an erection occurs.

An erection starts from the brain. Physical and/or mental stimulation cause nerves in the brain to send chemical messages to the nerves of the penis telling the penile blood vessels to relax so that blood can flow freely into the penis. Once in the penis, high pressure traps the flowing blood. This causes the penis to expand and sustain an erection. Consequently blood circulation is the key in order a man to achieve and maintain a strong and hard erection suitable for having sexual intercourse. Below we will take a look at the five most important foods and drinks that improve the blood flow and help the erectile function.


Onions are one of the best natural remedies for those who have cardiovascular and vascular problems, as they increase the blood flow into the arteries. Since the erectile function is greatly affected by blood circulation, onions will enable more blood into your penis and will help you achieve a stronger erection.


Have you ever wondered why your face becomes red when you eat something spicy? It’s the result of the dilation of the blood vessels. This expands beyond your face to the whole body including the penis.


Salmon is rich in Vitamin D and Omega-3. Omega-3 helps you improve and maintain a good cardiovascular health as it increases the blood flow into the arteries. As far as Vitamin D is concerned, it has been proved by many studies that it plays a vital role in the erectile function and a large percentage of ED patients exhibit Vitamin D deficiency.


Pomegranate is the most powerful anti-oxidant of all fruits. Pomegranate not only lowers blood pressure and cholesterol but also has the power to unblock the arteries, as many studies have shown. Drinking daily its juice improves blood circulation and helps the erectile function.


Caffeine boosts the metabolism, improves blood circulation and increases stamina. Drinking daily a cup of coffee will help you achieve stronger erections as well as to last longer.
