Supplements I Use

When do you use Arterosil?

I will try Arterosil with all patients. Men with sexual health concerns are desperately seeking improvements, and I want to help them. Arterosil is unique as the only endothelial glycocalyx supplement backed by research.

In men with erectile dysfunction, three factors that lead me to recommend Arterosil include:

Arterosil Dosage:

Initial Dose: 1 tablet twice a day 

Maintenance dose: Same 

Discontinue: At least a six month trial

Measure: Progress Monitoring

I’m looking for improvements in the following measurements in men:


My patients have had improved success, with or without erectile dysfunction medication.
Engage: Patient Compliance

Educate up front about the reasons, the anatomy, and the importance of endothelial health.

Biggest Tip?

“Give them hope. Use a multimodal approach like Arterosil and GAINSWave shockwave therapy along with the home device Phoenix Pro”

“Check their heart health, because erectile dysfunction is the canary in the coal mine.”
