The Power Berry

Herbs That Can Boost Your Erections

The saw palmetto berry has been used for centuries to assist in male sexual health. For an erectile  boost it has a two pronged approach. First, it can strengthen your prostate, a walnut sized gland just below your bladder responsible for seminal fluid release which stimulates an erection. Second, it can prevent testosterone (essential erection hormone) from turning into dihydrotestosterone (DHS) a hormone that has been associated with reducing testosterone levels as well as hair growth.
