VigRX Plus Natural Male Enhancement Review

VigRX has been the result of fine tuned research and development.

Do you want a product without side effects, the need for a prescription of suffer the shame of buying it from Walmart?

LAST UPDATED: June 2019 by Ben.

If you are looking at this review I am guessing that you may wish to improve your sexual performance.

There’s certainly no shame in that and you are definitively not alone.

In fact, a study using data compiled by the Massachusetts Male Aging Study revealed that 52% of men aged between 40 and 70 years old were suffering from sexual dysfunction. [1]

Furthermore, there’s a percentage of men who consider themselves to have a distressingly low level of sexual desire according to the reports from Norway whereby 8% of men have real concerns. [2]

A report published by the Department of Psychiatry of the New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School offers up some additional grim statistics.

Their study states that 15% of American men suffer from severe sexual dysfunction. [3]

 Product Summary: With 11 natural ingredients and an independent scientific study verifying its effectiveness versus a placebo and an alternative prescription drug, it is hard (pun intended) to recommend anything else!

So where does that leave us?

Well, it leaves us with a widespread issue.

One that cannot be ignored, it also means that many men may have to have ‘that’ talk with a medical professional and potentially subscribe to an expensive course of prescription drugs.

Alternatively, it may mean searching the aisles of Walmart for male enhancement supplements, where everyone can see you, and then heading to the cashier…

A feeling that would remind you of having to buy condoms as a teenager.

One thing is for sure.

VigRX Plus doesn’t require a prescription, nor do you have to buy it from Walmart, where you may bump in to your old school buddies.

Nor will you have to go to Walgreens, because VigRX Plus original and official formula isn’t sold in either store or even Boots in the UK.

It is only available online, direct from the manufacturer. So don’t even try finding it at GNC, because they don’t stock it ether.

There’s a good reason for this, cutting out that middle man keeps prices competitive. It also reduces the risk of counterfeit products in circulation.

Always buy direct, from the VigRX Plus website.

How does VigRX look?

The VigRX original male enhancement featured 8 ingredients and a fairly dated design theme.  You can learn more about VigRX original, here.

However, VigRX Plus has been updated, it looks more modern, more appealing and is chock full of 11 ingredients.

In addition, VigRx Plus has sold over 1.2 million boxes, is recommend by a doctor and has featured in studies which have been published in the National Library of Medicine.

These results showed that VigRX Plus offers comparable results to prescription drugs regarding improving erections.

However, VigRX Plus wipes the floor with prescription drugs regarding sexual desire…

That’s a double whammy effect that isn’t even achieved by those little blue pills we are all so familiar with!

Take a look at the results in the graph, below!

vigRX Plus graphs sexual arousal and desire

So, from an initial glance, there’s certainly a lot of positives to consider, and that is even before we have evaluated VigRX Plus ingredients, side effects and results.

But, let’s see who is behind VigRX Plus, because we want to know if it is a real company, with some solid history and not just a college kid spinning a yarn.

A bit of desk top research reveals that the company behind this male enhancement product is Leading Edge Health.

Leading Edge Health

The company behind VigRX Plus is based in both Canada and Cyprus, Europe.

This is reassuring because both Europe and Canada have to adhere to responsible and strict regulations regarding health and manufacturing.

On the VigRX Plus official website, there’s also a BBB Accredited Business certification and we are also buoyed by the site being 256 bit SSL secure.

This basically means it is safe to use and the company is responsible to buy from.

Furthermore, being BBB accredited means that the company adheres to a code of practices such as how it deals with customer services. You can read more about the Better Business Bureau, here.

Again, these are all good and positive signs letting you know that you can trust them.

I wanted to dig a little deeper, too.

Location

So, I found their address over in Victoria to see what the neighborhood looked like and if there was any relevance to its office location. I sometimes think that this is a detail most would overlook.

However, it is important, even in today’s video calling and email world, it is still important to have face-to-face personal contact with relevant professionals.

And, Leading Edge Health do not disappoint, being based in British Columbia and the heart of Victoria.

Their office is in a new, modern building which is surrounded by no less than 15 medical centers or hospital facilities within a 3 mile radius.

If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a pharmaceutical/clinical research company literally next door. Moreover, the economy of Victoria is based upon high-tech firms as well as pharmaceuticals while also being tagged as Canada’s smartest city in 2010. [4]

No doubt this ranking is bolstered by the presence of 3 Universities and 8 federal research labs.

Therefore, if you wanted to have a company that specialized in the development and sale of any type of supplement, Victoria is certainly a very good place to be.

Why does this count?

As mentioned earlier, location is easy to overlook in today’s modern world of communications.

However, being located within easy reach of research, educational and medical professionals means that collaboration is easier and more organic. A quick chat or discussion of ideas and theories can be had over a coffee rather than a proposed phone call over potentially different time-zones.

VigRX Plus Ingredients

A product is nothing without strong and effective ingredients with scientific evidence.

With that in mind, let’s evaluate the nutrient profile.

vigrx plus male enhancement ingredients panel

Immediately, we can see that this has 11 ingredients.

This is a large number, and again, fills us with confidence.

Korean Red Ginseng

A thorough analysis of health studies in to Korean red ginseng and sexual function are very positive.

Results demonstrate that Korean red ginseng is able to help those suffering with erectile dysfunction. [5]

Furthermore, a review of ginseng published by the School of Biological Sciences, University of Hong Kong state that it is also effective at increasing libido as well as fertility. [6]

In addition to its beneficial effects, it is also free of any potential unwanted side effects. [7]

Saw Palmetto

Looking through the research and studies available, my initial findings were regarding the effects of saw palmetto and how it could benefit erection performance on rats. [8]

However, I wanted to dig deeper to establish what its effects were on human subjects.

And, while not overwhelmingly brilliant there are benefits.

Mainly for treating benign prostatic hyperplasia.

What’s interesting about BPH is that it can be an issue for sexual function and normal prescribed treatments have an additional negative impact on sexual function.

However, saw palmetto has been proven to help alleviate mild BPH in addition to improving the symptoms associated with sexual dysfunction. [9]

Moreover, saw palmetto is generally well tolerated and has few safety issues. [10]

Hawthorn Berry

Hawthorn has traditionally been used as a treatment for circulatory issues such as heart disease. This is because it is considered that hawthorn can help dilate the blood vessels and reduce the hardening of the arteries.

It also contains antioxidants which can also contribute to protecting the body from free radicals.

Studies have note that hawthorn is able to improve blood flow and circulation [11], all good news for erections which require blood to fill the spongy tissue called the corpora cavernosa. [12]

Additional benefits

There’s evidence that hawthorn may also help in many other areas of your health, if the results transcend from animal studies to humans.

These include:

  • Immunity [13]
  • Cholesterol [14]
  • Digestion [15]
  • Hair growth [16]
  • Reduce anxiety [17]

Ginkgo Biloba

There is evidence available which demonstrates ginkgo biloba is able to enhance brain function which in turn improve your memory. The effects of this were evident after just 14 days use. [18]

This result is great, however, I wanted to understand how it may help with erections and libido.

Further research in to ginkgo didn’t disappoint…

Blood flow

After just 3 weeks of use, ginkgo was able to improve blood flow in tests [19]. Again, as we mentioned earlier, blood is required to fill the spongy internals of the penis.

Furthermore, evidence from a study conducted by the Academy of Physical Education in Poland saw that 6 weeks supplementation was able to improve endurance, VO2max and blood antioxidant capacity. [20]

Mood

The extract of ginkgo has shown that it can have a positive effect on mood by helping reduce stress and prevent high blood pressure. [21]

Moreover, for those suffering from a reduced libido due to anti-depressant use, ginkgo has been found to improve all aspect of sexual unction including lubrication, desire, orgasm and erection performance. [22]

Damiana

Used for centuries, damiana has demonstrated in animal studies (rat) that it is able to improve sexual function during periods of fatigue. [23]

There is also a general understanding that it may also help treat men who are suffering from impotency. [24]

It is also a proven compound for helping reduce anxiety. [25]

Tribulus Terrestris

Tribulus is often found in testosterone booster supplements for its alleged and widely believed testosterone enhancing benefits.

However, this is not the case and there is no proof that it can alter hormone levels at all. You can read more about it, here.

But what about its effects on libido and sexual function?

In that case, things change a little.

A study has been able to show that tribulus can increase libido, sexual desire and erections. [26]

However, it is not the wonder plant extract many people are led to believe.

Catuaba

Interestingly catuaba is used in south America as a caffeine free stimulant that can alleviate stress and fatigue. [27]

In Europe, it has been highlighted as an aphrodisiac. [28]

Other than this there is very little information available from reputable sources.

Muira Puama

This is a very good for increasing libido and sexual performance. [29]

It is also effective at increasing the hardness of the penis and improves the physical sensation of sexual intercourse.

While the benefits are generally touted for men, muira puama shows positive effects for treating low libido, sexual fantasy and sex drive for menopausal women. [30]

Cuscuta

If you haven’t heard of cuscuta, you are not alone. This must be the first time I have ever had to research it.

This plant is also known as dodder.

And, while it may not be too well known, it is widely used for a number of health reasons.

One of which is to improve sexual function and the immune system. [31]

Epimedium (Horny Goat Weed)

My initial research discovered a study that was published back in 2010 which concentrated the effects of purified horny goat weed on rats.

That study concluded that it has a benefit on penile function and health. [32]

Yet, I wanted to dig a bit deeper and understand more about how it can effect humans.

However, while there are a lot of sites and pages proclaiming how good it is, they were of a general media source and not particularly confidence inspiring nor reputable or scientific sources.

In the end my persistence paid off, because I found an article from the Science Daily who sourced material from the American Chemical Society via the University of Milan in Italy which explained that the purified extracts of epimedium can act like viagra but with fewer unwanted side effects. [33]

It is thought that these benefits arise (pun intended) from its active ingredient (icariin) which may increase nitric oxide synthesis [34] while being an anti-inflammatory [35].

Bioperine

One of the issues with evaluating the science behind many supplements and herbal ingredients is that there are a lot of sites that make statements but do not cite any notable or reliable referenced studies.

Thus, many of the search results on google are sites that I wouldn’t want to then reference myself.

In addition to this there’s not a massive amount of information regarding bioperine as it stands.

However, a bit of digging does reveal its benefits and how it can help with this male enhancement supplement.

While studies show that bioperine will have nothing to do directly with erectile or general sexual function, its benefits are down to the way it interacts with the other nutrients.

It helps by preventing enzymes that would attack molecules and have a negative impact on how nutrients from this supplement are absorbed. [36]

It is also able to slow down the rate in which nutrients travel through the intestines providing ore time and opportunity for them to be absorbed and utilized. [37]

VigRX Plus Dosage

We are instructed to take 2 pills per day.

With the total 11 ingredients, this means that we will get a daily dose of 1440mg which is a large amount.

By doing so, this will maintain a high level of the required nutrients to keep your sexual levels charged.

However, as the study proves (which can be found at the VigRX Plus official site) after 84 days the male participants were able to:

  • 62% better rate of maintaining an erection
  • 22% increase of frequency and quality of orgasms
  • 61% increase of sexual desire

A one month supply is 60 pills.

So, for a 3 month supply of VigRX Plus you will certainly notice the difference!

This is called the ‘Platinum Package‘ and it reduces the packet price to $49.

My VigRX Plus Results

I loved using VigRX Plus.

It seemed that I was always on heat. I was always horny and ready for action. Instead of getting to bed and feeling tired or fatigued, I would be the opposite.

Furthermore, my penis would feel really full and rock hard.

There would be no more flacidness or feeling as if my erection had been lost, or even trying to coax it in with my partner.

When I was in my 20’s I felt as if I was unstoppable and sex would always be easy, regardless of the time of day.

However, as I have gotten older, that feeling had ebbed away slightly, probably due to a number of factors such as stress, fatigue and lifestyle changes.

For me, I found noticeable differences with a few days.

And, having completed the nutrient analysis, I understand why.

That is because we have a full compliment of those 11 ingredients, a transparent nutrient profile along with published scientific evidence that it can assist in at least 3 areas of sexual function.

Pros

Okay, we have literally just mentioned that this has a large amount of ingredients and not a proprietary blend in sight.

What’s more, there is also a high daily dose.

But we shouldn’t forget that not only does a doctor recommend this product but it also has been proven in a published study that VigRX is not only much more powerful and effective than a placebo at improving general sexual performance but it is even better than a prescription drug!

These are some amazing facts.

And very impressive!

But let’s look at that extensive nutrient profile.

Okay, when doing the analysis, I concentrated on the areas that are beneficial to sexual function.

However, these ingredients have been proven in clinical studies to help in the following areas:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Fertility
  • Libido
  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia
  • Blood flow and circulation 
  • Anti-oxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anxiety/mood
  • Endurance/performance 
  • Stimulant
  • Sexual fantasy 

There’s also added benefits such as hair growth, improves nutrient absorption, helps the immune system, fights fatigue, improves cognitive function, reduces blood fats and helps with digestion.

I think you will agree, that’s a good deal of benefit.

What’s more, there is no need for a prescription.

There’s no need to go in to your local drug store or supermarket suffering the embarrassment of the cashier eyeballing you as you try to hide a male enhancement product among the soda while also trying to look after your kids.

While all the time, knowing that each ingredient is natural (not just some synthetic chemicals) and there is that 67 day ’empty box’ money back guarantee.

Counterfeits or Fake VigRX

Now there’s the ‘real vs fake’ VigRX problem.

It is easy for unscrupulous manufacturers to print a box and fill it with red pills.

However, this can be dangerous to the user.

In fact there’s a growing widespread number of fake products that are available online these days.

One way to ensure that you only buy the real product is buying direct from the manufacturer. So always buy from the VigRX website.

If you have sourced some VigRX from another online retailer that was suspiciously cheap, you can use the ‘counterfeit check’ facility.

This checks your box code to see if it is a genuine article.

Cons

This is not the most cost effective male enhancement supplement on the market.

However, it is the only one that I have seen so far that has been proven to work just as well and in some cases, better than a prescription drug in a study.

Plus, they do some amazing bulk buy deals.

There’s little to not like about this product.

Okay, I am never keen on seeing tribulus, as many people wrongly believe that it increases testosterone. Yet, it does seem there is evidence that it can help increase sexual desire.

VigRX Plus Side Effects

It sees that this male enhancement product from Leading Edge Health is free from any concerning unwanted side effects.

Nor are there any real potential issues or interactions with other nutrients.

Overall, this combination of ingredients is widely considered safe.

VigRX Plus Testimonials

One way to see how a product performs is by checking other people’s thoughts and reviews.

I had an online search and the general consensus is good.

Plus, there’s some positive reviews on the site as well.

vigrx plus testimonials These customer reviews confirm my experience.

Free Semenax

Yes, if you buy a 6 or a 12 month supply of VigRX Plus you will get a bottle of Semenax Volume Enhancer pills free of charge!

Not only that, but you will receive a Natural Health Gift Card and an Erection Fitness membership card.

More to the point, let’s look at Semenax Volume Enhancer.

semenax volume enhancer bottle

Volume Enhancer

Yes, that’s correct. If you buy 6 boxes or 12 boxes of VigRX you also get a bottle of Semenax which has been proven to increase the volume of semen and the intensity of your orgasm.

How does it do that?

According to Dr. Anuradha Kulkami it has shown,

“…statistical significance over placebo…” and “…20% more increase in ejaculate…”

This is down to the 18 natural ingredients.

  1. Swedish flower
  2. L-Arginine
  3. L-Lysine
  4. Epimedium
  5. Bultea Superba
  6. L-Carnitine
  7. Zinc
  8. Vitamin E
  9. Maca
  10. Pine bark
  11. Catuaba
  12. Muira puama
  13. Hawthorn
  14. Cranberry
  15. Tribulus
  16. Avena sativa
  17. Sarsaparila
  18. Pumpkin

This combination of ingredients was examined and analyzed by a team of scientists from a company called Vedic Life Sciences.

Vedic are an independent testing facility which helps verify any claims by manufacturers.

This particular study was conducted in 2012 and investigated the effects of Semenax volume enhancer against the placebo for men who are considered to produce unusually low semen volume and those who have a normal amount.

Semenax Study Conclusions

The study concluded that Semenax was far superior to a placebo by providing an increase in the volume of ejaculating semen and intensity of the orgasm.

It was also noted that it was a safe product to use.

VigRX Plus Conclusion

You could just take my anecdotal opinion of VigRX Plus.

Or you could just go by what other testimonials say.

Whats-more, you could just be satisfied by my ingredient analysis which has the studies outlined for the benefits.

However, you could always consider that an independent lab has tested the product against a placebo and confirms that it actually performs not just as good as an alternative prescription product, but also better!

Then consider the gold standard money back guarantee.

That’s 5 levels of satisfaction.

Okay, it is not the cheapest, but if you buy in bulk you do see a reduction in price per unit, plus, you can also get a FREE bottle of Semenax volume enhancer which has also been verified to be effective as well!

Overall, this is a fantastic product(s), and if you are looking to ramp up your sexual experience, one not to be overlooked!

Don’t just take my word for it, the science also proves it!
