AIM: Primary objective of the study was the evaluation of effects of a combination of plant extracts and aminoacids on erectile function (ED).
METHODS: The study was performed as a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, cross-over study. 50 men with moderate ED received a combination of Pycnogenol®, roburins, L-arginine, L-citrulline or placebo. Sexual wellness was evaluated by the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF).
RESULTS: Treatment over a period of one month restored erectile function to normal.
CONCLUSION: The combination offers an option for treatment of ED without unwanted effects.
