Viagra (or sildenafil citrate) is quite popular among males. As a matter of fact, its popularity skyrocketed over the last two years. The blue pill has helped many people bring back their sex lives, often providing excitement and passion. However, many men have complained about side effects, which usually include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Sudden loss of vision and/or hearing
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Chest pain

There have been a number of accounts that linked Viagra with heart attacks. The side effects have brought fright to some men, which is why they look for other ways to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). For years, the word “natural” has taken the concerns out of people’s minds. So, “natural alternatives” to Viagra or those that are hyped as herbal Viagra suddenly start appearing. Several men want to try these natural Viagra alternatives and you may be one of them. But are they really safe?

Be Wary

Experts tell those who want to use Viagra, either for treating ED or just for fun, to be extra careful. This is also true for those who are planning on using the natural Viagra products. In fact, herbal supplements, such as these so-called natural pills, are something to be more vigilant about for many reasons, including:

  1. They are not held to equivalent standards with the prescription drugs for ED, such as Viagra.
  1. Since they are mostly found online, it is difficult to trust these pills over the ones you can buy over the counter.
  1. There is no enough evidence or study that herbal Viagra is more effective than the prescription drugs.

Viagra and other medications are used to treat erectile dysfunction by means of increasing blood flow to the penis during sexual arousal. While it is true that the herbal Viagra supplements are generally cheaper and can be bought without a prescription, they are not entirely safe. The fact that they are available without a doctor’s recommendation should already worry you.

Some products have substances that can indeed relax the walls of your blood vessels, therefore increasing blood flow. But they usually don’t target specific blood vessels that are connected to the male organ. Unfortunately, this can cause low blood pressure, which can put men in danger, especially for those who consume medications for their heart problems that contain nitrate.

Instead of risking your health in buying these dubious products online, talk to your doctor about your problem. Unsurprisingly, only one in four men with ED will discuss their concerns with a doctor. Take erectile dysfunction seriously as it can also be a symptom of an underlying heart problem that usually requires immediate treatment.
