How to use Balance Beta-Alanine to naturally boost flagging sexual performance (sexual dysfunction)

Conversation during a consultation with a client: "Oh! and just one other thing; do you have any advice about how to get the Old Man working better?" You would be surprised at how often this question about male sexual dysfunction arises.

If the spam arriving every minute in my email is anything to go by, medications such as Viagra and Levitra for sexual dysfunction is big, big business. Stress, ageing, poor diet, over-prescribing of medicines, smoking, alcohol abuse and societal expectations see to it that this problem can only grow larger.

I have been looking for one nutrition product that may assist with reversing sexual dysfunction and I finally have stocks of it - Balance Beta Alanine. Beta Alanine is an amino acid that is essential for athletic strength, stamina and recovery. But; it has a wonderful side effect: it may improve the sexual performance of ageing men and women by increasing blood flow to the organs doing the hard work. Bedroom athletes.

When a person takes supplementary beta alanine he or she may experience intense vasodilatation/pumps from the very first dose. Because Beta-Alanine increases carnosine and carnosine is a powerful precursor in generating nitric oxide synthase (a group of enzymes necessary for making the powerful vasodilator nitric oxide), this is an added, immediate benefit of beta-alanine.

Nitric oxide is important for key physiological processes within the body. From a bodybuilder's perspective, nitric oxide supplementation via beta alanine may prove useful in increasing growth due to increases in blood flow to certain areas of the body. Further, men suffering from erectile dysfunction may also find supplementing with nitric oxide via a supplement such as Balance beta-alanine is helpful by increasing blood flow to the appropriate bits and pieces. Female sexual gratification may be similarly benefited.

While most of the research had been done on healthy young athletes, I am most interested in what might help the 40% or so of men and women who have low libido, poor sexual performance once underway and who are generally tired and have sore muscles and aching joints. It may also be beneficial for improving blood flow to the brain. People taking beta-alanine report that their thinking is clearer and they are less tired than usual during the day. I am excited about its possible benefits with the elderly.

Are you deficient in beta-alanine?
Signs of beta-alanine deficiency may include the inability to achieve and sustain erections, physical weakness, sore muscles, aching joints, feeling depressed, fuzzy thinking and extreme fatigue (Of course there may be other factors causing these symptoms as well).
