Impotence – A Man’s Worse Nightmare!

Impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction (ED) is a man’s inability to achieve or maintain an erection. This is a condition that is rarely talked about amongst men but can have a devastating effect on a man’s confidence and self-esteem. This can subsequently lead to depression which only serves to aggravate the condition further. Unfortunately, impotence is a very common problem and affects over 2 million men in the UK alone. In fact, over half the male population over the age of 40 will suffer from some form of impotence at some stage. Despite these statistics, only a small number of men, about 10%, will seek medical assistance due mainly to feelings of embarrassment. Many medical doctors will prescribe chemicalised drugs, such as the blue pills to combat impotence. These are of course, not without their side effects. 

Most young men in their 20’s or early 30’s dismiss erectile dysfunction as something that will never happen to them. Yet ED is a condition that can be caused by a number of factors. 


This is often the layman’s reason for the number one cause of impotence. Yet according to studies, psychological factors account for less than 20% of impotence in men. It is the subsequent feeling of depression and anxiety after one incident of impotence that can compound any underlining medical condition and worsen the problem. 

High Blood Pressure 

Aside from psychological factors, physical condition can also precipitate impotence. It is well documented that high blood pressure and high level of cholesterol can lead to a high risk of impotence. This is due to the copious amount of pressure on the blood vessels that causes damage to the arteries of the penis severely restricting the flow of blood to the penis resulting in an ineffective erection. 

Stress and Fatigue 

This one falls into the category of psychological. Although some men find stress to be a motivator, too much stress and fatigue can lead to erectile dysfunction. Stress can be in the form of financial, sexual, work or relationship and this can cause erectile problems. Fatigue is normally the result of stress that can zap a person’s physical and mental energy. Once the cause of stress or fatigue is resolved, then any erectile challenges should also be resolved. 

Excess Weight 

Over weight is seen as a contributory factor to increased level of impotence. Excessive fat blocks the arteries in the penis which restrict the flow of blood to the penis resulting in difficulty in 

achieving or maintaining an erection. 


Most men who suffered strokes normally complain of lack of sexual desire and erection problems. It is important that stroke sufferers should immediately seek medical advice upon any indication of any erectile dysfunction whatsoever. Erectile problems after a stroke are not normally permanent. 


Impotence is a very real and serious concern for the majority of men at some stage in their life. The causes range from the psychological, to the physical such as high blood pressure. There are preventative actions that one can take such as regular exercise, adequate sleep, reducing levels of stress and consulting your doctor as soon as possible.

Most causes of impotence can be identified and treated. Many medical doctors will prescribe the little blue pill or other similar ED drugs to treat impotence. Unfortunately, these are not without side effects. So it is not surprising that millions of men are turning to 100% naturally herbal alternatives such as Maxidus to treat erectile dysfunction. 

As natural herbs have no side effects, the benefits are unsurpassable such as increase in energy, libido boosting and treatment of impotence. So, don’t allow impotence to become your nightmare!
