There are some teas made with medicinal plants that help to reduce the symptoms of erectile dysfunction, as they can increase blood circulation to the sexual organ or improve brain functioning, giving more mood and libido.
Although these medicinal plants have a faster effect when used in the form of tablets or capsules, as they have a higher concentration, they can also be used in the form of tea, provided they are ingested daily.
Erectile dysfunction usually affects men between the ages of 50 and 80, who are no longer able to achieve an erection sufficiently rigid to allow penetration and satisfactory sexual intercourse. Learn more about this problem at see other ways to treat erectile dysfunction.
1. Korean Ginseng Tea and Maca
Korean Ginseng, also known as Panax ginseng is a plant that, in addition to improving mood and allowing an easier interpretation of sexual stimuli, also seems to have an effect on the cavernous bodies of the penis, facilitating blood circulation and enabling a more satisfying erection.
Furthermore, when associated with Maca it is possible to slightly increase testosterone levels, which ends up increasing libido and improving sexual performance.
- 2 grams of dried Korean Ginseng root;
- 1 teaspoon of Peruvian Maca powder.
Put the dried ginseng root to boil with 500 ml of water for 10 minutes. Then remove from the heat, strain and mix with the Maca powder. Let cool and drink 2 to 3 times a day.
2. Ginkgo biloba tea with Tribulus terrestris
This is an excellent home remedy to help improve sexual function in men who are taking antidepressant medication, as some studies show that Ginkgo seems to improve mood, while Tribulus may slightly affect serum levels of testosterone, facilitating erection.

- 1 tablespoon of Tribulus terrestris leaves.
Place the two plants in 500 ml of boiling water and let it rest covered for 5 to 10 minutes. Then strain the mixture and let it cool. Drink this mixture 2-3 times a day.
These plants can also be used in the form of food supplements, showing faster results. Some formulas in he alth food stores already contain a mixture of these plants in their composition.
3. Schisandra chinensis tea
