Don't die of embarrassment!




It is estimated that more than half of men aged between 40 and 70

experience erection problems at least once in their lives. In more serious cases it can

be a sign of heart disease. 


The condition can be caused by a blockage in the penile artery, which is

much thinner than the arteries around your heart, and can be an early warning

sign of future heart disease. 


The risk factors for cardiovascular disease, include smoking, diabetes,

hypertension, high cholesterol and obesity. 


The causes of erectile dysfunction (ED) can be divided

into psychological and physical and often the two co-exist:



Psychological causes - accounts for 20%

Physical causes - accounts for 80%
