Saffron for Erectile Dysfunction

August 26, 2019

[Music] the spice saffron has traditionally been considered an aphrodisiac it has been shown to improve prozac induced sexual dysfunction in women and men significantly improving erectile function if it works for drug-induced dysfunction might it work for just regular erectile dysfunction why not just use pills like viagra they can work but many men stopped using them due to for example adverse side effects nearly half of men decide the cons outweigh the pros for men that don’t like drugs there’s always surgery the implantation of penile prosthetics unbelievably penile implant usage evidently dates back to the 16th century early experiments involved transplanting a guy’s rib cartilage or their actual rib into their penis thankfully space-age technologies in the 60s allowed men to keep their rib cages intact originally the implants left men in a permanently erect state but then the flexor rod was invented with a hinge in the middle so the guy could like bend it down in half for improved concealment of course proper sizing is important if the implants are too small there can be drooping at the tip leading to what’s called a supersonic transport deformity why because its resemblance to the nose of the Concorde jet whereas over long prosthesis can also be a problem with the semi rigid rods eroding out of the penis although they generally perforate into the urethra the rods can also extrude through the tip or the shaft ouch now there are inflatable devices and perhaps one day there will be expandable phones that respond to external magnetic fields or metal mesh technology that could expand and retract in a cage like fashion and you thought it was hard to get through airport security now there’s got to be a better way 20 men with erectile dysfunction would fall for 10 days taking 200 milligrams of saffron a day that’s about 1/4 teaspoon but first they were bought into the ridges scan room where they were hooked up to a computer-controlled battery-powered system for recording of penile tumescence meaning swelling and rigidity you can hook men up and have them watch a VHS videotape though use of the device is controversial described as an expensive complicated and time-consuming effort but after the 10 days of taking saffron they did appear to be a significant improvement in tip and base rigidity and tumescence whether it’s possible to replace viagra type drugs with this gold implant will require further research with a bigger sample size but it’s not just size that matters they didn’t use a control so this could have all just been one big placebo effect finally though a head-to-head challenge saffron versus a viagra now normally there’s a third group a placebo group as well but evidently they felt it’d be unethical to let men go 12 weeks without an effective treatment the saffron appeared safer significantly fewer side-effects like severe headaches hot flushes nasal congestion and nausea but not effective at all so that’s why I never did a video on the subject it just doesn’t seem to help but maybe it’s because they made the mistake of taking the saffron orally as opposed to rubbing it on their penis the effects of topical saffron on erectile dysfunction about half of middle-aged men appear to suffer so how about a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study a gel containing 1% saffron or instead of saffron a gel containing a little golden yellow food coloring so they looked the same though presumably half the penis smelled like pee guess they didn’t control for that both groups were trained to rub a pea-sized amount of the gel on their penis half an hour before sexual intercourse and then were reassessed a month later and compared to the food coloring gel the saffron did lead to significant improvements in function and desire and overall satisfaction they attributed the effects to a compound in saffron that evidently enhances nitric oxide production in the arteries but if that’s the case then probably better to treat the cause and prevent the vascular dysfunction in the first place [Music] you

    It's almost like Dr. Greger mocks us. He follows up rice/arsenic with an ingredient that is commonly used in… what else, rice dishes. Rice and seafood is where one finds saffron. What else is one going to do with it? If you say smoothie, you go to hell!

    Dear Greger I think it would be a really great idea to compare US data with EU data, for example I am really interested in how arsenic levels in rice, chicken, and others compare to arsenic levels in Europe.

    I need some information on AFTER a gallbladder surgery. A friend (still eats SAD) of mine just had surgey and all I can find is what to eat to prevent surgery. But I realized I have 3 friends who have had thier gallbladder out and are over weight. Can you do a video on how to eat after?
    It may be tbe same as thr rest of us who have not had the surgey. But I canr find anything when I search that tells people to eat vegan/plant after surgey.

    My question is regarding the trans-dermal properties, obviously since the studies show that oral dosing on saffron, is ineffective , this must be due to whatever is in saffron is destroyed or not absorbed in our digestive tract,

    now the question is, does this transdermal cream need to be rubbed directly on the penis, or would something like a patch work. in other words, does just work locally, or does it work, when the substance is in the blood stream?

    The cure for erectile dysfunction in the vast majority of American men does not require any special anything, no spice, no device, no specific vegetable, no drug, just the cessation of the American diet and a transition to a vegetarian and/or vegan lifestyle.

    I know, because that was all I needed to heal my own onset of dysfunction. And while that doesn't prove cause and effect, we already know the problem is cardiovascular disease brought about by the S.A.D. state of dietary affairs.

    The "secret" is to have all your bases covered and use one of the many techniques that have been known to work for men to have crazy erections. It's all about releasing your inner beast, your inner instinct, practically forcing your member to respond, and explode in size. It's a lot easier if you look for the specifics in Mario Volpstein's website.
