Basics: Mid 40ís. I've been struggling off-and-on with ED for about 7 years. Started using Cialis: Boom! Miraculous. It's still pretty impressive, but I've noted in the last year or so that my ability to "stay" hard is diminished--and it's hard to get my erection back when I lose it. Huge bummer!
Went to my doc. I love my doc by the way. He gave me all the pros and cons of TRT and wasn't pushing it--just educating. Turns out my Total Testosterone was 529 and the Free Testosterone was 12.7. Although not optimal, that's also apparently not good enough to qualify for therapy coverage by my insurance policy. I know I could pay for it, but I'm of the mind that approaching this naturally is something I should try before jumping into TRT.
So I've decided to modify my diet in accord with your suggestions--and to try out some of the other supplements you identify. On the advice of Dr. Al Sears' "The 13th Secret," I've also started drinking the following cocktail each day:
-8oz water, 4oz orange juice
-5g L-Arginine powder
-3g A-AKG powder
-I also add a packet of Splenda
Is there any reason why the above is, in your opinion, good or bad? I'd love input.
The other question: I'm considering buying the ImmunPlex Undenatured Whey Protein you mention. After I read what you wrote about exitotoxins being in typical whey proteins, I went out and bought Vega Sport's Natural Plant Based Performance Protein--the chocolate flavor that contains cocoa powder, but now I'm concerned about the Aspartic Acid and Glutamic Acid you mention as being bad. The only problem is that both of those things are also in the ImmunPlex product you recommend. If you go to this link http://vegasport.com/recover/performance-protein
and click on "Key Ingredients & Supplement Facts," you can look if over if you will. Is this product going to work with building my erectile strength or against it?
