By now, I’m sure you know that nitric oxide is an important gas for achieving a normal erection. But new research is finding that other gases may also play an equally important role in sexual health.

Just published – a new study that suggests that hydrogen sulfide is another gas — along with nitric oxide — that plays a role in helping erections. That’s the good news. The bad news is that hydrogen sulfide is a poison gas (used by the British in WWI) that causes the smell of rotten eggs and flatulence. OK, so it’s not perfect. But new research suggests it plays an important role in many body processes.
As I’ve noted many times, there is still a lot we don’t know about the body, and many unknowns concerning erections. If we could only spend more money on medical research, then we would all live longer, happier lives. But the average person and the people who decide where our resources go seem oblivious to this fact. So, we have to deal with the world as it is. In this case, it means you searching the Internet for information on how to improve your sexual health. In my case, it means searching the medical literature for clues that can improve sexual health.

Anyway, back to hydrogen sulfite and information you can use. It is worth noting that hydrogen sulfite is produced by the breakdown of allicin, which is found in garlic. This fact supports the use of garlic for cardiovascular and sexual health. Whether there are other sources of hydrogen sulfite is something I am investigating — but for now, this is an easy way to support your general and sexual health – eat garlic or take allicin pills. By the way, allicin is produced when garlic is chopped or crushed, so just eating raw garlic isn’t the same as eating crushed garlic or allicin.
