Male impotence, often known as erectile dysfunction (ED) is defined as the inability of a man to achieve and maintain an erection sufficient for mutually satisfactory intercourse with his partner. ED is one of the most significant stress and lifestyle-related diseases. The main causes of this condition include overexertion, physiological abnormalities, decreased hormone levels, and damaged relationships with partners. Ayurveda provides natural medications with efficacy that have been established for the treatment of erectile dysfunction in addition to prescription therapy and food control plans. The chapter on "Rasayana" and "Vajikaran" in ancient medical literature, particularly Ayurveda, mentions various natural medications that can be used singly or in combination to treat these types of illnesses. One of them that have been traditionally utilized to increase sexual strength is garlic. In addition to meditation and self-belief, psychotherapy may also show to be a very effective treatment for this illness. Garlic is a drug of preference in comparison to Viagra and is also socially acceptable. It's possible that a preparation of odorless garlic has the ability to treat erectile dysfunction. This review will discuss the current research done on the natural herbal aphrodisiacs and evaluate the weight of evidence to support the use of any of these substances to enhance sexual desire and function. The present review, describes the detail information about the major constituents and their medicinal importance found in naturally occurring plants, which are helpful to further development of pharmaceutical formulations.
