Quercetin – a substance in wine and onions – can prolong erections, according to a study by researchers at the Murcia Institute of Sexology, published in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. With this in mind, the group developed pills designed to treat premature ejaculation.
To test the effects of the pill, the researchers recruited 12 men aged 27-58 with the disease. Prior to treatment, participants were able to maintain an erection for 1 minute and 9 seconds, and after 12 weeks of treatment, this mean was approximately 2 minutes and 26 seconds.
The researchers pointed out that quercetin treatment did not cause any side effects, but it is still unclear exactly how long an erection this pill can guarantee – highlighting the need for further research. The study has not yet been peer reviewed, including.
The researchers also do not know if the men received other treatments for premature ejaculation during the study, even though they did not receive any other medication or psychological treatment in the six months before enrollment.
Quercetin pills contained approximately 433.64 mg of St. (Hypericum perforatum) and 68.65 mg of quercetin, approximately the same amount of quercetin in about 85 100 ml glasses of red wine or one large crude red onion. Quercetin is found in the pigments of many vegetables, fruits and grains and has antioxidant properties.
Premature ejaculation is a common sexual complaint, and one in three men say they will experience this problem at some point. As long as it happens infrequently, it doesn’t cause concern. However, you should see a doctor if:
- Always or almost always ejaculation within minutes of infiltration
- You do not have the ability to delay ejaculation during intercourse
- Feeling anxious and frustrated, avoiding relationships
Psychological factors can contribute to premature ejaculation, such as early sexual experiences, sexual abuse, depression, worries, and feelings of guilt. The condition can also be caused by biological factors such as abnormal hormone levels, infection of the prostate or urethra. Fortunately, there are treatments that can prolong an erection.
