In our last article we discussed how high blood pressure can cause erectile dysfunction. Unfortunately the very medication we take to control our high blood pressure can also result in continued erectile dysfunction. If you were to poll the number 1 reason in men for non-compliance in taking their medication, this would be the top reason. So much so that 70% of men who experience this as a side effect of their medication regimen stop taking their medication all together.


Two medication use to fight high blood pressure B-Blockers and Diuretics are the 2 leading medication causing erectile dysfunction. What happens with diuretics is one side effect they have is possibly depleting zinc in the body. Zinc is an essential mineral in the making of the male hormone testosterone. Decreased testosterone in the body resulting in a decreased desire for sexual fulfillment, fewer erections and low sperm count.


In order for an erection to occur, there has to be activation of beta-receptors in the tissues of the penis and arteries of the penis. Notice the name BETA-BLOCKERS. This receptor sites in the nerve tissue of the penis become blocked by the medication actually binding to the receptor sites thus making the possibility of an erection somewhat difficult. This does not allow the blood vessels to relax enough to allow the penis fill up with blood for a proper erection.
