Daily Supplements Men Should Take to Maintain Sexual Health

Updated: Jan 12



Several herbs, vitamins and supplements can play a role in supporting men's sexual health by contributing to overall well-being and addressing specific concerns. Here are some supplements to consider:

Vitamin D

Supports testosterone production, which is crucial for libido and overall sexual function. Sources: Sunlight, fatty fish (salmon, mackerel), fortified foods and D3 supplements.


Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

Promotes blood flow, which is important for erectile function. Sources: Meat, poultry, fish, whole grains, nuts, legumes and supplements.


Vitamin B9 (Folate)


Supports sperm production and may improve semen quality. Sources: Leafy green vegetables, legumes, fortified grains and supplements.


Vitamin B6


Regulates hormones, including testosterone. Sources: Poultry, fish, bananas, potatoes, fortified cereals and supplements.

Vitamin E


Acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells, including those in the reproductive system. Sources: Nuts, seeds, spinach, broccoli, and supplements.

Vitamin C


Boosts blood circulation, supporting overall cardiovascular health. Sources: Citrus fruits, strawberries, bell peppers, broccoli and supplements.

Zinc


Essential for testosterone production and sperm health. Sources: Meat, dairy, nuts, seeds, whole grains and supplements.

Magnesium


Supports muscle and nerve function, including those involved in sexual response. Sources: Nuts, seeds, leafy green vegetables, whole grains and supplements.

L-Arginine (not a vitamin, but an amino acid)


Helps produce nitric oxide, which promotes blood flow to the genital area. Sources: Red meat, poultry, fish, dairy products and nuts.


Omega-3 Fatty Acids


Supports cardiovascular health and can contribute to better blood flow. Sources: Fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines), flaxseeds, chia seeds and walnuts.


Proteolytic Enzymes


Breaks down proteins from your diet into amino acids for growth and tissue repair. These enzymes may also reduce inflammation and support immune function. The acid and sugar of proteolytic fruit mix with the fructose and glucose of the semen and make the pH more acidic, creating a non-bitter taste. Sources: Pineapple, papaya and Pecker Nectar supplement.

Epimedium Herb

Epimedium might benefit ED through its inhibition of phosphodiesterase-5 (PDE-5). This is the same mechanism exerted by pharmaceuticals like Viagra. PDE-5 inhibition increases levels of cyclic GMP, which enhances smooth muscle relaxation and blood flow to the penis promoting a better erection. Sources: Epimedium grandiflorum, common name: Horny Goat Weed.


It's important to note that while these vitamins and nutrients can contribute to overall health and, indirectly, sexual well-being, maintaining a balanced diet, regular exercise, and a healthy lifestyle are crucial for optimal sexual health. Before taking any supplements, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional to ensure they are appropriate for your individual needs and health status.
