Dr. Kahn’s Approach to Men's Sexual Health and Microcirculation:


Evaluate: Vascular Risk Factors

Top 3 Lifestyle factors:

  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • Sleep

Inherited/Family History:

  • Lipoprotein(a)
  • Familial hyperlipidemia
  • MTHFR with homocysteine elevation

Lab Measurements:

  • hs-CRP
  • Lp(a)
  • Nt-proBNP
  • hs-CRP

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

Treat: Recommendations

My most powerful interventions:

  • Add whole foods with a lot of fruit and ditch processed foods
  • Exercise 22 minutes a day or more
  • Stop smoking

Supplements I Use

  • Neo40
  • Bergamet Pro+
  • Arterosil (green seaweed capsules that restore artery linings)
  • Beet powders (BioSchwartz) and Affirm tablets

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:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Processed food diet

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:

  • EndoPAT improvements
  • ADMA improvements
  • Nitric oxide production improvements


My patients have had improved success, with or without erectile dysfunction medication.

Engage: Patient Compliance

Educate upfront 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.”


About the author: At his core, Dr. Joel Kahn believes that plant-based nutrition is the most powerful source of preventative medicine on the planet. Having practiced traditional cardiology since 1983, it was only after his own commitment to a plant-based vegan diet that he truly began to delve into the realm of non-traditional diagnostic tools, prevention tactics, and nutrition-based recovery protocols.
