Fact Check

What causes erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) can stem from a range of physical and psychological factors, often a combination of both. Vascular issues, such as atherosclerosis or hypertension, can impede blood flow to the penis. Neurological disorders like multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s may disrupt the transmission of signals crucial for erections. Hormonal imbalances, particularly low testosterone, can contribute, and mental health factors like stress, anxiety, or depression often play a role. Certain medications, including those for blood pressure or depression, can have side effects impacting erectile function. Unhealthy lifestyle choices like smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and lack of exercise can also contribute. Pelvic surgery, trauma, sleep disorders, obesity, and age-related changes can further complicate matters. It’s crucial to recognize ED as a potential symptom of underlying health issues. Seeking professional advice is essential for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment, which may include lifestyle adjustments, medications, therapy, or surgical interventions.

Can a concoction of almonds, black pepper, dry ginger, mishri, and milk cure Erectile Dysfunction?

No. There is no scientific evidence to support the claim that a concoction of almonds, black pepper, dry ginger, mishri, and milk can cure erectile dysfunction (ED). 

Even though the mentioned ingredients have some role in improving sexual function, ED is a complex condition with a variety of causes, and there is no one-size-fits-all cure. 

Sexologist

Dr Yogesh Tandon, a Sexologist based in Delhi, explains, “It cannot be definitively claimed that consuming such mixture can cure erectile dysfunction (ED). Essentially, such formulations may include the addition of a couple of walnuts and 2-3 threads of saffron (kesar). This formulation is highly beneficial for enhancing overall body strength and power but curing erectile dysfunction is an overstatement.”

One animal study indicates that almond supplements can enhance sexual function. Similarly, a compound found in black pepper called piperine might aid in increasing penile erection ability. Another research found that ginger increased sexual arousal toward erotic stimuli in both men and women. Lastly, there is no magic food or supplement that can cure Erectile Dysfunction. 

While some lifestyle changes may positively impact erectile function, it’s important to note that “curing” erectile dysfunction (ED) at home is not guaranteed. Lifestyle modifications such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, stress management, and sufficient sleep can contribute to overall sexual health. However, persistent ED may indicate an underlying medical issue, and consulting a healthcare professional is crucial for proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Home remedies can complement medical interventions but should not replace professional advice when dealing with erectile dysfunction.
