Thirty-nine percent of men over age 40 have erectile dysfunction (ED). Drugs like Viagra have a long list of potential side effects, like headaches, nausea, and blurred vision.

Alternatives: Too much belly fat can cause ED – and losing it helps end it. Drinking too much alcohol can KO performance as well. Acupuncture has been found to reduce or cure ED in many men, as has psychological counseling when the problem is mental, not physical. Studies show that the amino acid L-arginine can also improve ED.
