When the aforementioned strategies prove insufficient to address ED symptoms, medical therapies are warranted. The simplest treatments include use of a class of oral medications known as phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE5I, e.g. sildenafil, tadalafil, vardenafil, and avanafil). These drugs enhance the effects of nitric oxide, a natural molecule within the body that relaxes the smooth muscle of the penis, to enable increased blood to flow and result in erection. These medications are generally very safe and reliable. Men who use nitrates (found in certain heart medications and in some recreational drugs) should not use PDE5I. Optimal use of PDE5I requires advice on timing and proper use of these drugs for maximal effect.
In a study that enrolled 25,906 men, men who consumed foods rich in flavonoids were less likely to report E.D. Flavonoids improve blood vessel function while lowering blood pressure. They have anti-inflammatory properties as well as the ability to modulate nitric oxide levels. When E.D. is caused by inadequate blood flow into the penis, reducing inflammation and dilating blood vessels is likely to help (Cassidy et al., 2016). .
Once you establish a routine exercise regimen, you feel fitter and leaner. This, in turn, improves self-esteem. "Nothing is sexier than self-confidence," Eilber said.

Folic acid, also known as folate, can decrease high levels of homocysteine. Homocysteine is an amino acid. At high concentrations, it can damage the lining of your blood vessels. High levels of homocysteine have been linked to heart disease and stroke.
An additional analysis compared treated and untreated men within each blood pressure group. In the hypertension category, treated and untreated patients had similar penile blood flow velocities. However, in the high-normal category, treated men had worse penile blood flow than untreated men. Similarly, in the normal blood pressure category, treated men had worse penile blood flow than untreated men.
