Danshen – Chinese Miracle Herb for Men?

Erectile dysfunction is one of the #1 complaints from men with type 2 diabetes.

In type 2 diabetes, the body generates a large amount of oxidative stress…

And this oxidative stress wreaks havoc in the body – damaging cell structure and DNA.

Damage from oxidative stress may be one of the reasons for ED problems in type 2 diabetes.

A Chinese medicinal herb called Danshen can lower oxidative stress. And, therefore, it could help with ED.

Protective effects of Danshen injection against erectile dysfunction via suppression of endoplasmic reticulum stress activation in a streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat model

These researchers carried out animal experiments at the Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China and published their results in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Type 2 diabetes is a major cause of ED.

“It has been reported that diabetic men are three times more likely to develop erectile dysfunction than nondiabetic men.”

Danshen is a medicinal herb very well known in China.

“Danshen, a traditional Chinese herb, is the dried root of the plant Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge.”

This traditional remedy is used for treating many diseases in China – stroke, angina, atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, diabetes, and insomnia.

And it a clinical trial showed that it can cure ED…

“In a clinical trial, Danshen injection has been demonstrated to cure erectile dysfunction.”

They designed this study to see if Danshen could lower the oxidative stress associated with type 2 diabetes – and improve ED.

The researchers conducted experiments on four groups of 10 rats.

They treated one group of rats and used them as a comparison group.

They gave the other three groups of rats a chemical that caused them to develop type 2 diabetes.

Plus they treated two of these groups with the herbal remedy at two different doses.

“The diabetic rats were intraperitoneally injected with Danshen solution (0.5 or 1 mL/kg/day) or the same volume of saline for 6 weeks.”

After six weeks, they checked all of the animals for four particular changes to the reproductive organs.

They also assessed their sexual performance.

“After 6 weeks, erectile function and histological morphology of the corpora cavernosum were assessed.”

Plus, they looked at changes to oxidative stress in all of the animals.

“Oxidative stress indicators were measured in penile tissues.”

Type 2 diabetes did cause erectile dysfunction in the animals.

“The erection times of diabetic rats were significantly less than those of control rats.”

The herbal remedy improved sexual function in the diabetic animals.

“Danshen improved erectile function via increased erection times.”

The researchers gave the animals the herb as an injection because it was an easier way to deliver the medicine.

But, traditionally, Danshen is taken by mouth.

The corpus cavernosa are sponge-like tissues inside the male member.

During arousal, these tissues fill with blood and cause an erection.

Danshen protected the corpus cavernosa from structural damage caused by type 2 diabetes.

“Danshen injection was also found to ameliorate the morphological abnormalities of the corpora cavernosum.”

The experiment also proved the involvement of oxidative stress in ED.

Type 2 diabetes increased oxidative stress in the penis of the animals.

And Danshen lowered the levels of oxidative stress and increased protective antioxidants.

“Danshen increased antioxidant activity as well as reduced oxidative stress levels in diabetic rats.”

So Danshen does reduce the oxidative stress associated with type 2 diabetes – the oxidative stress that seems to cause structural damage to the penis, leading to ED.

“Danshen could rescue diabetes-associated erectile dysfunction by suppressing oxidative stress.”

Oxidative stress causes damage to any part of the body, of course.

And this may explain why people in China use Danshen to treat so many chronic diseases.

A couple of warnings…

Danshen can cause drowsiness in some people.

Plus it can increase the risk of bleeding and significantly lower blood pressure.

You should always consult a healthcare practitioner about treating and diagnosing health-related problems.
