Nitric Oxides Role in the Erection Process

The erection process begins with sensory and mental stimulation in the brain and impulses from the brain to the nervous system trigger the release of nitric oxide.

This has the affect of making the muscles of the penis relax, thus allowing blood to flow into the spongy tissue of the penis and bring an erection to fruition.

Nitric Oxide and Age

Nitric Oxide declines naturally with age and many men who are getting older simply need to boost their levels of nitric oxide.

Problems can be physical problems such as hardening of the arteries which restricts the flow of blood flow into the penis.

Nitric oxide is produced in several areas of the body and an important area of production is in the walls of the arteries.

Arteriosclerosis (plaque in the arteries) impedes the production of nitric oxide and also contributes by preventing the flow of blood especially to the penis.
