Caffeine and Alpha Lipoic Acid - mild improvement
« on: May 27, 2020, 01:53:30 AM »

For the past couple of weeks I've taken caffeine 200-300mg and Alpha Lipoic Acid 1000mg daily and have seen some mild but noticeable improvements in Erectile Dysfunction. My Erectile Dysfunction is severe so I consider any improvement to be significant.

I take both caffeine and ALA in the morning with breakfast. No side effects apart from some increased anxiety (things not easy in our household during the lockdown so I expect this to pass as life returns to normal).

The improvement is most likely due to Caffeine being, like Pentox, a mild, non-selective PDE inhibitor and ALA is a powerful anti-oxidant. I've also been drinking a lot of chamomile tea, but I doubt this is causing any effect.

I think I also read a study somewhere that state Alpha Lipoic Acid can help with nerve relates issues causing Erectile Dysfunction.

Google it if it seems like something you may be interested in.

I also found caffeine can have an effect similiar to viagra where it increases bloodflow to the penis.

I'm glad you're seeing some improvement.
