Dreaded droopy dick syndrome

"Dear gary,
IT is interesting to see the plethora of ads and products being promoted for the treatment of the dreaded droopy dick syndrome in the middle aged men,apart from the Viagra type products there are many natrual products such as "Horny goat weed" or "Macca"
Although I am not suffering any problems in this department yet , I very much want to look after my best mate and keep him in good working order for the coming challenges .
I was wondering if you have any experience with this problem ,and could recommend any of the natrual suppliments, or methods to prevent this from becoming a problem.

John Holmes"

Gary Moller Comments:
John, I am pleased to know that you are without the above-mentioned matters.
There are several key factors at work that may combine to bring about declining libido in both men and women. While I am not, for one moment a medical expert on these matters, I feel I do have a reasonable grasp of some of the contibuting physiology underlying this gradual decline in sexual performance as age has its way:
  • Stress, fatigue, sleep deprivation and depression
  • Hum-drum relationships
  • Mineral depletion; especially magnesium
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Loss of physical condition and muscle tone
  • Gradual loss of circulation mostly affecting the periphery of the body
  • Side effects of prescription medicines
  • Hormonal changes associated with ageing

Referring directly to your question about Viagra, Horny Goat Weed and so on, these may or may not be of any use and, if they do have an effect, these should only be regarded as temporary fixes or "jump starters", since they may not deal with the underlying issues, such as stress and fatigue.

I am going to try to tackle each of the eight factors listed above over the next few weeks.

John, Thankyou for raising this important and topical subject.
