Should I use herbal remedies for premature ejaculation?
by Sarah Price
When it comes to addressing the functionality of the penis, most guys are quite rightly turned off by mainstream medicinal offerings.
Who in their right mind would be brave enough to cover their private parts with a cocktail of unknown chemicals?
Or even more worrying, take anti-depressant tablets with more side-effects than you can name?
Unfortunately, many men have resorted to these options, often out of sheer desperation.
Encouragingly, an ever-growing horde of males are realizing the benefits to be had from going herbal, and are seeking “natural” solutions to ensure they give a solid performance between the sheets, without compromising their good health.
In this article we will be focusing on the benefits of natural remedies for premature ejaculation, along with providing some tips and advice on which herbs are most effective, and how to select the right product for you.
Can herbal remedies be as effective as regular medication?
Herbal medicines receive a lot of criticism from mainstream medical professionals, often because they want you to buy "their" synthesized drugs/medicines, as opposed to what is actually best for you.
It is easy to forget that most of the common medicines sold by pharmaceutical companies today are derived from plant-based sources, such as aspirin being originally developed from willow bark.
It was only after the Second World War that industrialized pharmaceuticals began the mass production of these synthesized chemical medicines.
According to HerbPalace.com:
"The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 4 billion people, 80% of the world population, presently use herbal medicine for some aspect of primary health care. The WHO notes that of 119 plant-derived pharmaceutical medicines, about 74% are used in modern medicine in ways that correlated directly with their traditional uses as plant medicines by native cultures. Major pharmaceutical companies are currently conducting extensive research on plant materials gathered from the rain forests and other places for their potential medicinal value.",
To return to the initial question of whether herbal remedies can be as effective as regular medicine, it is clear to see that without the use of these herbs, many areas of modern medicine would struggle to exist.
Are herbal medicines for premature ejaculation really much safer?
The number one reason why men choose herbal products over synthesized medicines is due to the reduced risk of side-effects.
Herbal medicines are usually well tolerated by the patient, and come with fewer unwanted consequences than pharmaceutical drugs.Herbal remedies also tend to be more effective for long-standing health conditions (such as premature ejaculation), that don't respond well to pharmaceutical medicines. Even conditions such as arthritis are often best treated with natural remedies. With some of the newer pharmaceutical products, the long-term effects of usage are still unknown, whereas most herbal remedies have been tried and tested over thousands of years.
In conclusion, herbal solutions are generally considered to be a safer option than pharmaceutical products, especially for the treatment of premature ejaculation.
What are the disadvantages of using herbal treatments?
- Medication interactions: When ingested, some herbal treatments may interact with your existing pharmaceutical medications. Before consider taking some form of herbal tablets, you should consult your doctor.
- Lack of dosage instructions: Since most herbs do not come with detailed instructions, there is the possibility for one to cause some harm through self-dosing. You should receive clear instructions from the seller about the correct dosage to take.
- Lack of regulation: Slack regulation of herbal products means there is the possibility for companies to produce below average quality items. Always ensure the retailer/herbalist who sells you their herbal remedies can be trusted.
Are there any herbs known to actually prolong the male ejaculation?
Numerous studies have shown that the two most effective herbal ingredients to prolong the male ejaculation and improve sexual vitality are Butea Superba and Panax Ginseng.
Never heard of these herbs? Very few people are actually aware of the power and benefits both herbs can bring to their sexual performance.
Studies on Butea Superba:
The PubMed website, provided courtesy of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and National Institute of Health, acknowledges various studies, concerning the positive impact of Butea superba on men's sexual health.

Within the same page, it was stated that early studies have suggested that applying a herbal combination containing Panax ginseng on the penis may help treat premature ejaculation. For more information on panax ginseng, click here
