Is cnidium monnieri effective for erectile dysfunction?

Cnidium monnieri, sometimes called Snowparsely or She Chuang Zi in Chinese Medicine, is one of the most widely used traditional herbal medicines. Cnidium monnieri has been used as a powerful healing herb as well as a treatment for sexual dysfunction. It is primarily used for the purpose of overcoming sexual malaise and strengthening sexual potency and increase sexual drive. In Chinese literature we can find as aphrodisiac seeds that were used almost routinely in imperial formulas designed specifically for the emperor.

Almost 350 compounds have been isolated and identified from Cnidium monnieri, including the main active constituent, osthole.

Some studies show that the compound osthole dilates the corpus cavernosum of the penis with the release of nitric oxide allowing more blood to flow, leading to a firmer erection. Another study further demonstrated this effect bay emphasizing that even low doses of osthol were effective at increasing levels of nitric oxid promoting a higher erection quality and more blood flow. This is a “fast acting medicine” - works within 30 minutes of taking the herb. Cnidium fruit is not toxic and there are no side effects if taken in normal doses. Some experts are saying that Cnidium might work just as well as Viagra and Cialis without any the side effects they have.
