Nitric Oxide Erection

Nitric Oxide Erection Process

Nitric Oxide (NO) is a highly reactive gas within our body and has a variety of physiological functions.

One of these functions is for penile erections. Namely, the erection of the penis during sexual excitation is mediated by NO released from nerve endings close to the blood vessels of the penis.

During sexual arousal impulses from the brain to the nervous system trigger the release of nitric oxide which makes the muscles of the penis relax, thus allowing blood to flow into the spongy tissue of the penis that makes an erection possible.

Drugs & Other Natural Ways to Boost NO

The popular drugs such as Viagra, Levitra and Cialis enhance the relaxation effect.

These drugs boost the effects of Nitric Oxide by inhibiting the enzyme that degrades cGMP. cGMP is the enzyme that contributes to the relaxation of the muscles in the penis which helps increase inflow of blood.

However, for the entire process of NO/cGMP to be activated, an individual must be sexually stimulated because the erection process begins with sensory and mental stimulation in the brain.

There are natural ways to enhance the production of NO within your body. This is done by eating food with nitric oxide, or more accurately - foods that are rich in the amino acid L-arginine.
