Viagra not working? Do this!

Who doesn’t want to enjoy sex? Or at least be able to have sex, right?

And when you go to the doc to get a drug that’s supposed to work…it doesn’t. That’s frustrating!

“What should I do?” You ask the doc on a return visit. “I don’t know, up the dose.” Is the response.

Not very helpful.

Don’t feel bad, a significant portion of people (approximately 30-35% of ED patients) are non-responders (R).

And not many people know of this trick I’m about to share with you.

Key point

Viagra non-responders typically have significantly lower levels of vitamin D than responders (R).

Vitamin D is very important for sexual function.

Vitamin D:

  • Improves vascular health
  • Reduces vascular oxidative stress and inflammation
  • Prevents soft tissue and vascular calcification
  • Enhances NO production and prevents its breakdown/oxidation
  • Antagonizes the angiotensin-renin-aldosterone system, thus preventing high blood pressure and arterial calcification
  • Increases dopamine
  • Increases testosterone and the testosterone to estrogen ratio
  • Improves insulin sensitivity (diabetics have a much higher risk of ED)
  • And much more.

Hans newsletter and his Men Elite website provides a plethora of nutrition, supplement, and general health advice backed by peer reviewed scientific literature. His no-nonsense ideas have opened my eyes to areas of my own health and have helped me overcome health issues I have tried to resolve for over a decade. Since discovering Men Elite and Hans’ newsletter, I have resolved my chronic asthma; improved my sleep; optimized my muscle building and fat loss nutritional strategy; increased my testosterone and sex drive; and dramatically increased my motivation and cognitive sharpness. I really genuinely enjoy the writing style which combines the right amounts of scientific deep diving and practical application of whatever topic each article covers. He does a great job at linking related or foundational articles so newcomers should be able to easily find their way no matter where they start with his writing. A+ grade from an experienced consumer of health and nutritional information!

If your penor is calcified and blood can’t enter effectively or be retained effectively, you’re going to have problems. Most ED problems are vascular-related, and vitamin D is super important for the vascular system. You can almost say it’s the missing link. Diet needs to be addressed as well ofc.

As a bonus aside, another reason why viagra works for some people is because it increases DHEA-S (R); the storage form of the adrenal steroid DHEA. DHEA is helpful against aging, autoimmune disease, cancer, depression, anxiety, sexual dysfunction, etc.

Practical takeaway

If you don’t respond to Viagra or other PDEi, up your vitamin D and DHEA.

Aim for 50ng/ml vitamin D and >350µg/dL DHEA.

I always recommend sun over supplementation, but if you don’t have sun available, then there are other options. Such as tanning beds, UV lights and supplements.

Dosing:

  • 5000-10,000IU vitamin D daily (untill levels are desirable)
  • 25mg DHEA daily until levels are desirable, then scale it down to 5-10mg daily.
