Male Enhancement Supplements – What are the Best Supplements?
When it comes to male enhancement supplements, there are a large number of products to choose from. The internet is littered with so many different types of male enhancement supplements it can be down right confusing to try and figure out which ones are best. The obvious question must be asked,
What are the best male enhancement supplements?
After using many different male enhancement products over a period of many years, I hope to be able to answer this question in a systematic and methodical way. Firstly, when it comes to many male enhancement products, you will notice that often they will share many of the same ingredients. Below is a listing of the most common ingredients found in the most successful male enhancement pills.
Ingredients in Popular Male Enhancement Supplements:
Ginkgo Biloba Leaf - Ginkgoaceae
Studies have suggested that Gingko Biloba works by promoting smooth muscle relaxation in the corpus cavernosum. In the last 30 years, more that 300 studies have given clinical evidence that Ginkgo prevents and benefits many problems throughout the entire body.
Ginkgo improves peripheral circulation, oxygenation, and increases blood flow to the genitals to improve sexual function and the power of an erection. In a recent scientific study, 78% of men with non-medically caused impotence problems reported significant improvement – significantly, with no side effects.
Saw Palmetto Berry - Fructus Serenoae
Saw Palmetto berries have long held a reputation as sexual stimulants and aphrodisiacs. The medical journal JAMA published research showing how Saw Palmetto is effective for the treatment of men with symptomatic benign prostatic hyperplasia. Saw Palmetto has shown significant action in treatment of conditions associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Saw Palmetto extract works to prevent testosterone from converting into dihydrotestosterone, the hormone thought to cause prostrate cells to multiply which leads to an enlarged prostate.
The effects of Saw Palmetto are a result of multiple mechanisms. One mechanism is that it relaxes smooth muscle tissue resulting in increased blood flow. Saw Palmetto also inhibits androgen and estrogen receptor activity and may be beneficial for both sexes in balancing the hormones. Because of its hormonal effects, Saw Palmetto can aid the thyroid in regulating sexual development and normalizing activity of those glands and organs. Currently, Saw Palmetto is widely used in Germany, Canada, the United Kingdom and the U.S. for nutritionally benefiting the prostate and urinary tract.
Asian Red Ginseng - Panax Ginseng
Ginseng has been shown to contain aphrodisiacal powers. A double-blind study by the Department of Urology, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea attempted to study the “efficacy of Korean red ginseng for erectile dysfunction.” Their conclusion was, “Our data shows that Korean red ginseng can be an effective alternative for treating male erectile dysfunction”.
A key ingredient of Ginseng is ginsenoside, which alters blood flow to the brain and penis and can build blood and sperm. Russian scientists have reported and recorded that Ginseng stimulates both physical and mental activity, enhances athletic performance and has a positive effect on the sex glands. Used to combat non medically caused impotence, Ginseng helps normalize blood pressure while rejuvenating and revitalizing the body.
Hawthorn Berry - Fructus Crataegi
Hawthorn is rich in bioflavonoids, which relax and dilate the arteries. These compounds are powerful antioxidants that help increase the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart. This reduces the work required by the heart to circulate blood, and in- turn this reduces blood pressure and stress to the heart muscle. The bioflavonoid substances in Hawthorn give strength to the walls of blood vessels and improve blood flow to other areas of the body. Components in Hawthorn have also been shown to lower cholesterol, and the amount of plaque in arteries.
All of the ingrediants listed above are present in both the VigRX and Vimax male enhancement pills.
Additional Ingredients Offered only by VigRX:
In addition to the ingrediants above, the VigRX product contains additional all natural herbal ingrediants. These include:
Epimedium Leaf Extract - Epimedium Sagittatum (Horny Goat Weed)
- Also known as “Horny Goat Weed”, Epimedium has been used for thousands of years as a libido enhancer. Medical research has discovered that the active ingredient is icariin. Icariin is used to increase erectile function. Another effect of Epimedium is, it allows more blood to flow to the penis. It does this by allowing the nitric oxide levels to increase, relaxing smooth muscles. It also acts as a mild PDE-5 inhibitor. Like Viagra, Epimedium reduces PDE-5 levels, although at a level that doesn’t produce unwanted side effects.
Cuscuta Seed Extract - Semen Cuscutae
- A recent medical trial studied the effect of Semen Cuscutae on men with dead sperm. The result showed a more than 70% increase in live sperm and sperm motility.
Muira Pauma Bark Extract - Ptychopetalum Olacoides
- Muria Pauma is used to restore sexual virility and to increase sexual desire and potency in men.
Catuaba Bark Extract - Erythroxylum Catuaba
- The historic traditional use of this herbal tonic is legendary. Many say it is the most famous of all the Brazilian aphrodisiac plants. It is said that regular consumption of Catuaba bark over a period of time leads first to erotic dreams, which are later followed by increased libido.
Best Male Enhancement Supplements?:
After using and testing a multitude of male enhancement supplements, there are only two companies which I would consider recommending.
After narrowing down all the male enhancement supplements on the market, I choose VigRx and Vimax to test. I have used both these products over the last few years and can attest to both these product improving both penis size, girth and libido.
I would use one product for a period of three months, then stop using the product for 2 months and detail my findings. After the 2 month period without using any pills, I then repeated the same steps with a different product. I performed these tests 3 times over a total period of 30 months – 2.5 years to try and achieve some consistency in my results.
My findings we quite interesting. I noticed an increase in libido, penis size and girth using both products. However, my findings did notice that there was a noticeable increase in size with the VigRx product, compared to the Vimax.
Although highly subjective, I did find it difficult to quantify increased libido, so I included the number of times I would masturbate or have sex. During my own personal trials I did notice that my Libido did increase 1.5 times more using VigRx compared to Vimax.
I currently use and will continue to use the VigRX male enhancement pills as I found them to be the most effective. This may be due to the fact there are many more beneficial ingrediants in this product. That is not to say Vimax didn’t work, I just found the results to be more significant with the VigRX product.
