FOR DOCTORS: How to Maximize the Results of GAINSwave with Triple Therapy: AFFIRM, PDE-5 Inhibitors and GAINSwave

Help your patients GET BACK UP! by optimizing erectile function!  It is necessary to both improve vascular blood flow to the corpora cavernosa and maximize the supply of Nitric Oxide (NO) signaling the arteries going to the penis.  As men age, their endogenous NO production declines significantly, even with good health and proper diet.  By the age of 50, an average man has 50% of the endogenous NO production he had when he was 30 and by age 70, NO production declines to 25% of normal.  Think of it as a dimmer switch on a light.  At 25% light, you can still move around a room, but you can’t speed read or do surgery.

The four ingredients in AFFIRM (L-citrulline, Red Beet Root Extract, Muira Puama and Panax (Asian) Ginseng) were specifically chosen because they have been shown in scientific studies to not only boost NO but also improve erectile function.  In addition, AFFIRM has been studied in combination with GAINSwave to improve SHIM scores in men by 5.2 points.  The references to some of these studies are provided below.  AFFIRM has four ingredients because the variability of response is normal in biologic systems and our patients will respond to a greater or lesser extent to each of these ingredients, but will likely have a strong NO boosting response to at least one of the components.

AFFIRM is a high-quality product using a standardized compound produced in consistent batches and manufactured according to strict manufacturing practices (GMP).  It is vegan, vegetarian, nut free, gluten free, caffeine free and contains no artificial colors or flavors.

You might be asking yourself, why tablets instead of capsules?  In order to combine the four ingredients in the optimal amounts, we needed to move from capsules to tablets.  Capsules hold a limited amount of supplement powder, whereas tablets can hold more active ingredient in a smaller space. 

Our 180 pill bottle was specifically designed for patients starting GAINSwave treatment.  We recommend a loading dose of 2 pills twice a day while patients are undergoing GAINSwave.  Many of our patients are deficient in NO, and this loading dose brings them closer to normal levels.  I find that while they are taking a loading dose of AFFIRM, they have better morning erections and notice that they are mentally sharper.  In addition, they respond earlier to GAINSwave treatment.  If they take 2 pills twice a day for a six-week course, the 180 pill bottle will cover the entire course of treatment.

The 60 pill bottle is for a monthly maintenance of 2 pills per day.  I find that patients have a longer lasting response to GAINSwave by continuing a NO booster.  AFFIRM can be taken with or without food at any time of the day, but it is better to take with food and a glass of water.  AFFIRM is priced reasonably as compared to other branded NO boosters like Neo40 which costs 40 dollars for 30 pills with only 420 mg of active ingredient in each pill (AFFIRM tablet has 895mg).  Our goal is to make it affordable for our patients to achieve the benefits of taking a Nitric Oxide booster.

I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about AFFIRM and combining NO boosters with GAINSwave.  I will post the answers on Vitality Connect and on the Portal.
