Can Hydrogen Peroxide Cure Impotence?

Several months ago, I started taking hydrogen peroxide to get rid of a parasite infection. I'm happy to report that it worked. Wonderful! But what may be even more wonderful is that I am no longer impotent. I don't know if it was the hydrogen peroxide that took care of the problem, but I thought if my story could help someone else, I should share it.


It's highly possible that the hydrogen peroxide helped correct your impotence.

Hydrogen peroxide oxygenates the tissues, and the mechanisms that promote erections are driven by the level of oxygen available to them. This helps explain why anything that restricts oxygen from reaching the penile tissue—physical injury, diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, or atherosclerosis—can cause impotency.

Sexual arousal triggers the body to produce nitric oxide, which in turn causes the spongy portion of the penis to relax and fill with blood while simultaneously constricting the veins leading away from the penis. The result is an erection. Research has shown that blood containing higher levels of oxygen causes more nitric oxide to be created.
