Erectile dysfunction (ED) affects nearly 50% of all men over the age of 40. ED is now well recognized as a consequence of vascular disease (a symptom of vascular disease in the smaller arteries). Any condition or disease which affects either the blood flow to the penis or the nerves to the genital area can cause ED.

Common Causes of Erectile Dysfunction

ED is a complex process involving the brain, hormones, emotions, nerves, muscles and blood vessels. Common causes of ED include:
Cardiovascular diseases (atherosclerosis, heart disease, high blood pressure)
Endocrine and metabolic diseases (diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome)
Neurologic diseases (Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease)
Respiratory diseases (COPD, sleep apnea)
Psychiatric conditions (depression, anxiety)
Tobacco use, drug abuse, excessive alcohol intake
Surgeries or injuries that affect the pelvic area or spinal cord
Medications (antidepressants, antipsychotics, antihypertensives, antiulcer agents)
Erectile Dysfunction and Heart Disease Share the Same Risk Factors

ED is associated with multiple risk factors. It is also known that ED and heart disease share the same risk factors including age, smoking, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, inactive lifestyle, and depression. Despite ED gives a two to three year early warning of a heart attack, the link between ED and the risk of heart disease is being ignored by general practitioners. Clinical studies have suggested that ED doubles the risk of heart disease, a risk equivalent to being a moderate smoker or having an immediate family history of heart disease. ED in type 2 diabetes has been shown to be a better predictor of the risk of heart disease than high blood pressure or high cholesterol. For these reasons, many doctors recommend modification of risk factors and life style changes to ED sufferers.

Chronic Inflammation Contributes to Erectile Dysfunction

Recent studies have shown evidence that chronic inflammation plays an important role in ED:

ED is associated with increased circulating levels of inflammatory markers in men with or without coronary artery disease.
The presence and severity of ED are associated with markers of inflammation and endothelial dysfunction.
Sexual performance score correlates inversely with the circulating levels of inflammatory markers.
Increased oxidative stress is associated with reduced erectile performance.
Inflammation promotes endothelial dysfunction and reduction of nitric oxide (NO), a major physiological stimulus for vascular relaxation including penile vessels.
Enhanced inflammatory state is the common link among ED, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome and coronary heart disease.

Natural Anti-inflammatory Remedies

Many botanical medicinal herbs and drugs derived from these herbs have been shown to have effects on the NO signaling pathway and endothelial function. FlameEz-Vascular is a scientifically formulated natural vascular remedy. It helps remove inflammatory toxins that contribute to vascular dysfunction.

By keeping inflammation under control, FlameEz-Vascular remedy will:

Increase blood flow and oxygen supply*
Protect vascular cells from infection, injury and stress*
Enhance the vascular healing and repair*
Improve vascular function*
Restore the body’s antioxidant defense*
