Premature ejaculation is the most common sexual problem of men under 40, according to doctor, author and nutrition expert Ray Sahelian. Premature ejaculation is defined as secretion of semen from the penis early into intercourse. It happens before a man's partner or the man is ready and can be very frustrating for both parties. It can even occur before penetration in some cases. Factors such as stress, age, and prostate problems contribute to premature ejaculation. Some herbal remedies may help to alleviate the problem, Dr. Sahelian notes, but others may produce little or no benefit.
Take 100 milligrams of kava before engaging in sexual intercourse, suggests Dr. Sahelian. Kava root comes in pill form and powder form which can be brewed into a tea and is sold at many health food stores. Kava increases blood flow to the penis and slows reaction to increased sexual stimulation, therefore helping you maintain erection longer.
Add two drops of hibiscus flower essence to 1/4 cup of water and sip slowly, suggests family practice physician Cynthia Mervis Watson. Hibiscus flower essence helps relieve stress and promotes romantic sexual feelings which increases the ability to maintain erection and control ejaculation.
Take a multivitamin formulated for men daily. Using multivitamin supplements in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise may increase sexual stamina and performance.
Take Graphites 12C two to four times daily. According to an excerpt from the Doctor's Book of Home Remedies, nutritionist Chris Meletis states that this nutrient in supplement form will help stop premature ejaculation with repeated use. Once your condition has improved, you may discontinue use of this supplement.
Try taking a 5HTP (hydroxytryptophan) supplement daily. According to Dr. Sahelian, 5HTP is a naturally occuring nutrient that is responsible for sexual health and seratonin production. It suppresses the urge to ejaculate sooner than normal while increasing stamina. You can find it at many health food stores and pharmacies.
