How to Cure Premature Ejaculation with Natural Remedies

Almost one in three men experience premature ejaculation. Here are five ways to cure premature ejaculation.

One of the biggest concerns with sexual problems is the hesitance to ask for help. Sexual issues, like premature ejaculation, for example, are relatively common.

According to research as many as one in three men are affected by premature ejaculation. The stigma surrounding a man asking for help with sexual performance is what deters the finding of a solution.(1)

Taking a step back, premature ejaculation is the condition where a man cannot control his orgasm and ejaculates within a very short period (less than a minute) of engaging in sexual intercourse (or even before).

Although premature ejaculation in itself is not a disease that can affect the man adversely, it can lead to negative mental side effects on the man and his partner. Anxiety, embarrassment, frustration, stress, and often depression, are the mental symptoms associated with premature ejaculation.

Vitamin C is known to act as an antioxidant and help eliminate Lactic acid and free radicals from the body.
