Many misconceptions abound about male enhancement pills – their ingredients, effects and side effects, for example. To set the record straight, here are the frequently asked questions about these make-centered supplements that every interested male – and perhaps their female partners – should know.
What Are These Pills?
Male enhancement pills are over-the-counter supplements taken by men that aid in the enhancement of their overall sexual health. It must be emphasized that these pills usually come in two types, namely, those that enhance the length and width of the penis and those that increase the ability to maintain an erection.
In the case of the leading male enhancement supplement – VigRX Plus (full review here), of course – it belongs to the second category. In a scientific study involving 75 relatively healthy men between the ages of 25 and 50 who were instructed to take 2 capsules per day for 12 weeks, the results were impressive.
The study was conducted by the Vedic LifesciencesPvt. Ltd. (you can find our more about this study here) using International Index of Erectile Function to assess the results, which included:
- 62.82% of the participants reported an increase in their ability to maintain their erections
- 58.97% asserted an increase in their ability for vaginal penetration
- 71.43% reported an increase in their sexual satisfaction
What Are The Ingredients?
Each brand of male enhancement supplement has its own list of ingredients. For VigRX, the ingredients include:
- Bioprene (Piper nigrum L)
- Damiana (Turneraaphrodisiaca)
- Epimedium Leaf Extract (EpimediumSagittatum)
- Ginkgo Leaf (Ginkgo biloba)
- Panax Ginseng
- Saw Palmetto Berry (FructusSerenoae)
- Muira Pauma BarkExtract
- Catuaba Bark Extract (ErythroxylumCatuaba)
Each of these ingredients have their own special effect on satisfactory to excellent penis erection but all of them work toward a single goal – to make the smooth muscles and their corresponding blood vessels in the penis to relax and dilate (open up), thus, allowing for more blood flow.
The greater blood flow to the penis, the better its erection and the better the man’s sexual performance.
Who Can Take The Supplements?
Males above legal age, in relatively good health, and with the desire to increase their sexual health can take male enhancement supplements. Younger males like teenagers are strongly discouraged from taking these pills because of the potential side effects on their normal sexual development.
Adult males falling under the following categories must first consult with their doctors about the safety of taking male enhancement supplements:
- With a history of underlying medical conditions (i.e., diabetes)
- On medications known to result in sexual dysfunction
- With liver or kidney dysfunction or disorders
- Erection issues resulting from low testosterone levels
Women especially pregnant women are also strongly advised against taking male enhancement supplements because these have neither been tested on females nor formulated for their use.
When Can These Results Be Seen?
As with all nutritional supplements, the effects will vary from one person to the next depending on his age, physical condition, and underlying health issues, among other factors.
Males who are relatively healthy – no major psychiatric disorders, deformities of the penis, and sexually transmitted diseases as well as history of chronic degenerative diseases like diabetes – will enjoy better results within a shorter period than men who may have issues affecting their penile and overall health.
In the case of VigRX, most men will enjoy the positive results within 3 months. Continuous ingestion of the male enhancement supplement will sustain these results.
What Other Methods Are Necessary For Best Results?
Although male enhancement pills are effective in their own right, as evidenced by the above mentioned results, experts suggest using manual male enhancement exercises for best results. Just make sure that these exercises are safe to apply on the penis since it is a delicate organ in many respects.
The penile exercises include jelqing, PC clenching, and basic stretching, to name just a few. If you would like to know more about these top 3 exercises in details i recommend you to check out this post at bestmaleenhancement.me (you’ll find how to videos there too!)
What Are The Side Effects?
Since the above mentioned ingredients are natural, there are little to no side effects. If there are, these are usually limited to palpitations and headaches for the first few days and then can be resolved on their own. Just make sure to follow all dosage instructions of 2 times a day after meals.
It is also important to purchase male enhancement supplements like VigRX from reputable online sellers preferably from the manufacturers’ official website. Check the validation codes, if any, on the bottle of the supplement just to be on the safe side.
Doing your research on the product is always a good idea to avoid scams selling ineffective, if not unsafe, supplements that can worsen your sexual health instead of improving on it.
