I have never had time for tobacco since. Warm, passionate, ebullient, and full of the joy of life and love. What fun they are to be with, and what a marvelous country and culture they have: the timeless beauty of the land and sea, the inspiring historical heritage, the magnificent art and architecture, the brilliant science and engineering, the glorious music, the fabulous food and wine, the sophisticated fashions, the sexy cars, … and Sophia Loren! And, oh, the language—was there ever a more seductively beautiful tongue than Italian?
Carnitines—Better Than Testosterone for Impotence
Erectile Dysfunction/ED Supplements - Which Supplements Help? | nancyhoytbelcher.com
The April issue of the journal Urology published the findings of Italian researchers that the amino acid carnitine was more active than testosterone in improving symptoms of aging in men, such as sexual dysfunction and depression, associated with the decline of androgenic hormones. One hundred twenty men between the ages of 60 and 74 with symptoms of low testosterone were randomized to receive milligrams orally administered testosterone undecanoate, 2 grams propionyl-L-carnitine plus 2 grams acetyl-L-carnitine per day, or a placebo for a six month period. Prostate-specific antigen, prostate volume, nocturnal penile tumescence, total and free testosterone, prolactin, luteinizing hormone, erectile function scores, depression, fatigue and other parameters were assessed before treatment, at three months, and after the treatment period. Erectile function, sexual desire, sexual satisfaction and nocturnal penile tumescence increased over the course of the study in the group receiving testosterone as well as the group receiving carnitine. In addition, the group receiving carnitine experienced an increase in orgasm and general sexual well-being. Erectile function and nocturnal penile tumescence were significantly more improved in this group than in those receiving testosterone. Treatment with carnitine was not associated with an increase in prostate volume as was testosterone treatment after six months.

The application of nutraceuticals in the field of male sexual function -in particular for erectile dysfunction ED --remains relatively underexplored. In a group of 54 unselected men years , consecutively presenting to our ED clinic and naive to other ED treatments, we carried out a single-blind, one-arm study to evaluate the effects of a 3-month supplementation with propionyl-L-carnitine, L-arginine and niacin on their sexual performance. All patients had the short-international index of erectile function IIEF questionnaire, global assessment questions GAQs and routine laboratory testing, at baseline and 3 months afterward.
