Wow indeed EH..thanks for sharing your story..no wonder you were having problems! As you mentioned even with high cortisol levels it seems your issue has been more NO related.There is no doubt that POM juice is fantastic and helps to boost and maintain NO levels in your body.
The big hitters for me( proving I have also had NO problems) have been citrulline and ZMA.
The ZMA has helped me have a perfect sleep when taken at the right time as well as supplying me with a small amount of zinc.
The citrulline I have just been taking once a day in the morning on an empty stomach (about 5 g). The combination have resulted in (wake me up) rock hard erections everyday which I though were gone forever. It doesn't really matter too much if I have exercised that day or not but it is also fantastic for gym work also...which in turn boosts your NO etc etc .
I am now going to continue with this routine everyday as just having that feeling in the morning really sets you up for the day whether libido is around or not...I may try throwing daily POM into the equation to!... Regular sex as you know is a must also to keep everything boosted...after all improving the health of yourself and your man is what this is all about
I don't want to make a laugh out of your story cause it was obviously no joke ...but you could actually make your next million being POM juice man....POM advertisers would probably pay you a fortune if they knew the results you were having with it!...lol..
Thanks Spiderman, I don't like to talk about my story much because it still conjures up the fresh pain of it all, but I will say this, MAKE SURE your beneficiary designation forms all match what you want to have happen post-mortem. Beneficiary designation fields on all your accounts (checking, savings, money market, stock, IRA, pension) legally outweigh anything/everything (including trusts, wills, etc).
Have you tried POM yet in addition? I haven't noticed anything from zinc, magnesium, or citrulline (though I don't think I have taken 5g at once before). It is a great feeling to have morning erections again, and I agree that it makes the day start off right. I don't have them every day, only 1-2 times per week, but I am convinced that is because of different wake-up times. I probably do have the nocturnal erections but don't notice them because I am asleep.
I would gladly become the Jared of POM Wonderful products
Great idea. Imagine being recognized as the "erection guy". That would be tough on anyone's relationship though!
