Today, I propose to talk about home remedies for impotence. Some people also call them natural treatments for erectile dysfunction, or folk remedies. Anyway, let’s try to figure out whether such tools work, and do they harm or benefit.

Harmless home remedies for impotence

This time, I will not talk about questionable supplements, but only about foods that are considered aphrodisiacs and erection stimulants. I would call all these products harmless home remedies for impotence.

Shellfish and other seafood

Many believe that seafood, including oysters, enhances masculine strength. Due to the high content of protein and other substances, these products can really positively affect the potency and even the volume of semen. However, I would rather call them natural aphrodisiacs than a remedy for impotence. Also, don’t forget that “overdosing” on shellfish can lead to unpleasant “side effects” and poisoning.

ED home remedies seafood and oysters


Legends about the magical effect of ginseng root on male potency and human health in general come from ancient China. Many people still believe in its superpower. People make ginseng tinctures, including alcohol-based, and count on the effect. Perhaps, due to this faith, some really feel it.


Another “magic root”, quite a popular home remedy for impotence, theoretically may increase the flow of blood. Let me remind you that this is one of the properties of the most popular drug for erectile dysfunction, Viagra. Unfortunately, alcoholic-based “magic roots” tinctures most often lead to problems in bed than to the desired effect, since alcohol decreases libido and erection quality.

Walnut and other nuts

On my opinion, in this case, a light “effect” sometimes happens because of protein, just as with shellfish. However, nuts are good for your health (mind the calories!), so eat them if you wish.

Do the above home remedies for impotence help solve the problem?

Unfortunately, all of the foods listed above are unlikely to help you get rid of erectile dysfunction. Some patients claim that such remedies for impotence work, but I would attribute this to the placebo effect. On the other hand, none of these products will harm you.

But, if you really want to permanently solve your erection problems, better consult a specialist or just start taking highly effective medications. In addition, I recommend combining any kind of treatment with a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes, especially at the initial stages of impotence, a man just has to get rid of stress and bad habits, start eating healthier foods, and increase physical activity in order to restore normal sexual function.
