Men: these treatments can make you impotent

A beautiful young woman stares wistfully into a window where her reflection looks back at her.

These “treatments” are supposed to make men healthier… But almost all of them give men terrible erectile dysfunction instead…

—-Important Message—-

WARNING: Are you taking any of these?

Millions of men are taking these treatments with no idea of the damage they cause to sexual function.

Here are all the medications to avoid if you want to keep getting great erections and perform sexually.


Men: These Treatments Can Make You Impotent

The medical orthodoxy believes that low levels of serotonin in the synapses of the brain cause depression.

Many medications and supplements designed to treat depression are prescribed because they have an effect on serotonin.

Common antidepressant medications (SSRIs) such as Prozac allegedly work by increasing serotonin in the synapses of the brain.

They achieve this effect by blocking the serotonin transporter.

The serotonin transporter removes serotonin from the synapse.

SSRI antidepressants come with a very long list of side effects.

At the top of that list of side effects is a whole bunch of sexual problems.

Recently, researchers looked at the serotonin transporter in mice and its relation to sexual function.

The experiments show that decreasing the serotonin transporter affects sexual function negatively…

And this may explain why antidepressant medications cause sexual problems.

These researchers carried out animal experiments at The First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, China. The medical journal Andrologia published the results.

The activity of serotonin transporter depends on the genes that code for it.

This research used three genetically different strains of mice. The mice had different levels of serotonin transporter genes.

The researchers looked at the sexual behavior of the three different types of mice.

“We analyzed the sexual activities of three rat genotypes: low-, medium-, and high-serotonin transporter mice.”

Mice with low levels of the serotonin transporter had poor sexual function.

SSRI antidepressants seek to lower the function of the serotonin transporter.

“Low-serotonin transporter mice showed fewer ejaculations and a longer ejaculatory latency than the high-serotonin transporter group.”

High serotonin in the synapse caused by low serotonin transporter activity may be a cause of sexual dysfunction.

This could explain the sexual problems caused by SSRIs and other treatments designed to increase serotonin.

The animals with low levels of serotonin transporter had the highest levels of serotonin.

High-serotonin mice had the worst sexual function of all groups.

“The low-serotonin transporter group had the highest serotonin levels.”

Conversely, the animals with high serotonin transporter function had low levels of serotonin.

The animals with the lowest levels of serotonin were the most sexually active.

The serotonin transporter, the main target of SSRI antidepressants, has a major role in sexual function.

“Our study confirmed that the serotonin transporter plays a key role in sexual performance.”

Proponents of the low serotonin theory of depression propose treatments that lower the serotonin transporter.

But the serotonin transporter seems to be required for sexual performance.

“A certain amount of the serotonin transporter protein may be critical to normal sexual performance.”

There is genetic variation among humans in relation to the serotonin transporter genes.

The researchers suggest that genetic differences in the serotonin transporter may play a role in sexual problems.

“Polymorphisms of the serotonin transporter gene should be highlighted for ejaculation regulation research.”

But medications such as SSRI antidepressants also affect the serotonin transporter and, therefore, serotonin levels.

The harmful effect of SSRI antidepressants on sexual function has been known for over 20 years.

“Researchers revealed that men displayed a phenomenon of delayed ejaculations and/or low libido after long‐term use of SSRIs for depression and anxiety disorders.”

We now know that this effect could be caused by the main proposed mechanism of action of these medications.

“SSRIs act by inhibiting the re-uptake of serotonin in the synaptic cleft via binding to the serotonin transporter.”

The difference in sexual function between the high-serotonin and low-serotonin mice was enormous.

By some measures, low-serotonin mice were three times more virile than their high-serotonin counterparts.

Serotonin and the serotonin transporter have enormous effects on male sexual function.

Keep in mind that it is dangerous to suddenly stop taking powerful medications such as SSRIs.

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

—-Important Message for Men Who Want Great Erections—-

Why are men not being told this fact about erections?

A brand new scientific breakthrough reveals how a specific hormone can get men incredible erections like they haven’t had since their teenage years…

But Big Pharma doesn’t sell it.

So doctors don’t know about it – and men aren’t using it to get consistent erections like they should be.

This hormone will surprise you.

It will allow you to have an erection almost immediately, and it works for a long time – so you can have sex with your wife or girlfriend for 30 minutes or longer…
