INFO! Men with erectile dysfunction often have other comorbidities such as diabetes, hypertension, and coronary artery disease [7, 8, 9, 10].
Conversely, men consulting with their physician for comorbidities or other risk factors for erectile dysfunction may also have underlying erectile dysfunction, which may or may not be recognized.
AYURVEDIC HERBS FOR SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION
Ayurvedic medicine has used several herbs and herbal remedies since many centuries ago to increase libido levels, as aphrodisiacs and to treat male sexual dysfunction problems, some of them based on tradition, some proven to be effective after clinical trials of well trusted institutions.
AYURVEDIC MEDICINE FOR SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION -VAJIKARANA HERBS
The first clinical trial done in rats involved the administration of certain amounts of ayurvedic Varjikarana herbs as:
- Asparagus racemosus ,
- Chlorophytum borivilianum,
- Dactylorhiza hatagirea (D. Don) Soo (DH)
The results showed a positive effect on the claimed aphrodisiac claims of those ayurvedic Vajikarana herbs, having a significant positive response especially on those administered with Asparagus recemosus , also proven to be an effective anti-HIV , reducing viral production significantly.
Apparently the effect of those Vajikarana herbs extracts could be directly linked with the increased release of Nitric Oxide NO, induced by some active constituents found on those herbal extracts.
In Vajikarana Rasayana Curculigo orchioides is known as Kali Musli and Tamusali, a herb native to India and is considered a potent aphrodisiac and adaptogen, immunostimulant, hepatoprotective, antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-diabetic in the Ayurvedic Vajikarana Rasayana system , sedative, anti-convulsant and androgen-like effect.

In another study, the roots of Anacyclus pyrethrum used in Ayurvedic system of medicine “Vajikarana Rasayana” were also administered to rats during 28 days.
The results were also quite impressive, showing that the administration of these Vajikarana herbs provided an increased penile erection, with a four times increase in mount, even after discontinuation of treatment, what also suggest that Vajikarana herbal remedies used in Ayurvedic Vajikarana Rasayana medicine have a certain ground of evidence.
The third and last study is about another Ayurvedic herbal remedy for sexual dysfunction used under the Vajikarana Rasayana Ayurvedic medicine, the use of roots of Asparagus racemosus, Chlorophytum borivilianum, and rhizomes of Curculigo orchioides .
This research showed an increase and enhanced penile erection in rats administered with extract of those herbs providing a scientific basis for the claimed aphrodisiac effects of Ayurvedic herbal remedies used in Vajikarana Rasayana.
