Understanding corpora cavernosa

The most important part of your penis


The corpora cavernosa (singular = corpora cavernosum) are the spongy areas of the penis that expand dramatically and fill with blood during an erection. The word corpora cavernosa has been derived from Latin and means cave-like body. Corpora cavernosum consists of two cylindrical chambers (column-like bodies) filled with spongy tissue that run parallel to each other in the penis. The corpora cavernosa account for most of the body of the penis.

Location of corpora cavernosa

The corpora cavernosa chambers are found on the top and in the middle of the penis. (The area at the bottom of the penis is the corpora spongiosum). If you view the penis from above, imagining a line dividing it down the center, the corpora cavernosa chambers fall to the left and right of the line.

Why corpora cavernosa is so important?

The corpora cavernosa are the tissue chambers located in the penis that are responsible for making it erect. The penis cannot enlarge itself on its own. When you are aroused or sexually stimulated, your brain sends hormone signals that tell the body to fill the corpora cavernosa with blood. Therefore, if you wish to enlarge your penis, you must first strengthen and lengthen your corpora cavernosa muscle. In other words, the amount of blood the corpora cavernosa can hold will determine the size of your penis. Fortunately, it is possible to encourage cell growth in the corpora cavernosa, which in turn would increase overall penis length and girth (thickness). It is said that the corpora cavernosa retains about 90 percent of the blood that enters the penis during arousal.

How corpora cavernosa aids in erection of the penis?

The corpora cavernosa fill with blood during sexual arousal and cause the penis to become erect. This cycle begins when there is sexual stimulation (either mental or physical). The arousal triggers the blood vessels in the corpora cavernosa to relax and the chambers of spongy tissue fill up with blood. The pressure from the blood-filled chambers causes the penis to expand, leading to an erection. In other words, an erection can be achieved only when the tissues of the corpora cavernosa relax, allowing blood to enter the chambers. A membrane surrounds the corpora cavernosa that aids in keeping the blood within the cylinders. When stimulation ends or ejaculation occurs, the muscles then contract and blood flows back out of the penis and it returns to the flaccid state. The erection subsides when the penile muscles relax, allowing the blood to flow back into the body.

Corpora cavernosa enlargement theory

One of the most established theories behind penis enlargement is that if it is possible to expand the corpora cavernosa, you will naturally attain a larger erection. This is purportedly accomplished through the repeated forcing of blood through the tissues of the penis. Over time, this supposedly has the net result of triggering tissue expansion, resulting in a larger overall member.

How to increase the capacity and size of corpora cavernosa naturally?

The good news is that it is possible to encourage cell growth in the corpora cavernosa, which in turn would increase overall penis length and girth. In fact, an increase in the elasticity of the skin of the penis can lead to an increase in blood flow, which can stimulate cell growth in the corporate cavernosa.

There are some of the best herbal supplements / pills in the market that are effective, safe and easy to use. All you need to do is carefully choose the pill that contains the most essential ingredients in the optimal quantities. This pill should also be safer and yet as efficient as any medical treatment. A supplement that is 100% natural, e.g. derived from an organic plant / fruit extract, will not only give you fast and the most effective results but would also keep you free from hazardous side effects.

One of the safest herbal supplements, for example, would be one that contains time-tested ingredients such as Muira Pauma, Epimedium Sagittatum, Tongkat Ali, Flaxseed, Maca, Cordyceps and Ginseng. All of these ingredients have a long history of successful use for enhancing sexual performance and are known to produce throbbing blood flow to the penis which leads to longer, firmer and stronger erections and enhanced penis size, both in length and thickness.
