Hello My husband has stage 2 diabetes and I was wondering if the artichoke works or is there something you could recommend. He did the 15 day GLJ and his blood sugar went down but now he cannot gain an erection that last. Please help.
PS he is currently taking Arjun, Maca, etc

Oh. Do you mean to say that the erection problem started after taking GLJ?
Please share what all Green Leaves did he use ?
And to take care of the erection problem, he can take herbs like Asparagus, Ashwagandha, Mucuna Pruriens and Maca.
