ED drugs vs ED supplements: Which is better?

When it comes to erectile dysfunction, it’s a confusing marketplace.

There a variety of ED drugs to choose from, the most popular options being Sildenafil and Tadalafil (Viagra and Cialis)…

And forget about men’s erectile supplements, the marketplace is crowded with unlimited brands, especially in adult porn sites and Amazon.

Well, in this article, we won’t break down what the best drug or supplement is.

Rather, it will focus on which treatment is best for you: drugs or supplements.

ED Drugs, the Pros and Cons

Ed drugs work fast, almost instantaneously, as quickly as 30 minutes (for some of them).

You can say that drugs can deliver instant erections.

And that’s what everyone hopes for.

However, there are a lot of risks associated with ED drugs, especially with long term usage.

Side effects range from pain, headaches, dizziness, eyesight problems, hearing difficulties, and more.

In fact, there is a rumor that you can often tell which adult actors are using Viagra because their chest will get flushed with redness.

Yes, a red flush is a side effect.

But ultimately, many men choose to use ED drugs despite the risks because it works well.

Unfortunately though, these drugs are no guarantees.

About 30% of men who try them, report sexual failure.

Like any drug, it simply doesn’t work for anyone.

ED herbal supplements, the pros and cons

Very often, men who try a natural supplement, and get frustrated that it doesn’t improve their erections after just one pill, and give up on them altogether.

This frustration is partially the fault of marketing companies that make aggressive drug claims.

So consumers are misled into promises that the supplement can’t keep.

Unfortunately, ED supplements are not regulated by the FDA.

Supplements are considered food.

So their claims are not monitored by the FDA.

But there are validity to many of the ingredients used in herbal supplements.

Countless medical studies have shown that some herbal extracts and nutrients can produce a positive effect on erection performance.

However, few studies report instant benefits.

And in most clinical studies, users enjoy sexual benefits after regular usage that last 4 to 12 weeks.

So when herbal ED supplements work, it takes a much longer time compared to ED drugs.

The upshot is, unlike drugs, most supplements do not produce any negative side effects because herbs and nutrient are derived from natural substances.

Conclusion

ED drugs and herbal supplements both has its pros and cons.

If you would like an instant erection, and its that important to you, then may want to take the risk of negative side effects.

But if you do not want the risk of side effects, and you can wait weeks to get a stronger erection, then herbal supplements may be better suited for you.
