The ingredients in VigRx Plus are totally natural and many of them have been used for centuries by various cultures around the world for treating sexual dysfunction. In the past few years, scientific studies have confirmed that these ingredients can have a beneficial impact upon the male reproductive system. The list of ingredients include:
Damiana – This plant has long been used as an aphrodisiac in folk medicine. It turns out that there is a strong scientific basis for this powerful sex herb. Studies have shown that damiana helps maintain healthy levels of testosterone. Testosterone is the most important hormone for men when it comes to sex. Damiana also helps create nitric oxide, which helps blood vessels dilate, or enlarge, so more blood can flow to the penis. Erections are caused by the penis being filled with blood. Compounds found in this herb have also been found to normalize hormonal imbalances as well.
Epimedium Leaf Extract – This plant is most famously known as “horny goat weed.” It’s one of the most important sexual herbs in Chinese medicine. It is increasingly used in the United States and Europe as an aphrodisiac and treatment for erectile dysfunction. Many consider it to be “natural Viagra”. And in fact it works just like Viagra. It opens the blood vessels and promotes healthy circulation throughout the body—including to the penis. Getting a hard erection is all about dilating the body’s blood vessels to get that all-important blood into the penis. And horny goat weed is one of the best natural ways to achieve this.
Asian Red Ginseng – This is another herb that’s been used for centuries in Chinese medicine to boost sexual performance in men. There have been quite a few studies that have shown a significant reduction in erectile dysfunction after men have taken this herb. Like horny goat weed—another important ingredient found in VigRx Plus—ginseng is also known at a vasodilator, which means that it enlarges the blood vessels, promoting strong circulation.
Muira Pauma Bark Extract – This is yet another ingredient found in VigRx Plus that promotes strong circulation. These types of ingredients are vital for male enhancement because erections are so dependent upon a strong flow of blood into the penis. Unlike the ingredients discussed above, muira pauma is not Chinese in origin but South American. It is a highly respected sexual stimulant in traditional Brazilian medicine and is known as the “Viagra of the Amazon”.
Hawthorn Berry – This is used to treat problems with blood pressure, specifically hardening of the arteries. Once again, this plant will increase blood circulation and create stronger, longer-lasting erections.
Catuaba Bark Extract – This is another South American aphrodisiac and sexual stimulant long used in traditional medicines. Catuaba bark not only enhances blood flow, but it also has been found to increase testosterone levels.
Saw Palmetto – This VigRx Plus ingredient is renowned for increasing testosterone levels in men. Men who are losing their hair often take saw palmetto since high testosterone levels are associated with hair growth. Quite a few scientific studies support the claims that saw palmetto is effective at increasing and maintaining testosterone.
Ginkgo Biloba – We’re back to China with ginkgo biloba. This ingredient is from a tree native to China that has been used for thousand of years as a way to increase blood flow. It’s known as a memory enhancer because it promotes the flow of blood throughout the brain. But, of course, increased blood flow is also associated with harder erections as well.
Bioperine – This nutrient absorption enhancer helps your body absorb the many ingredients found in VigRx Plus more effectively. This is incredibly important because otherwise your body will not get the most out of the ingredients. Most male enhancement products do not contain bioperine, which is why they don’t work as well as VigRx Plus.
