Arginmax Women Review

Arginmax for Women Review

Arginmax is a sexual enhancer that has been sold on the market since 1997, and it has been used in various clinical trials to test its effectiveness for improving sexual desire in both men and women. It comes in two different versions - Arginmax Men and Arginmax Women. While these two version share the same name, they contain some different ingredients targeted individually to men and women - for example, Damiana is one of the key ingredients in Arginmax for Women, but it is not included in the Arginmax Men formula.

The Arginmax for Women formula also contain other ingredients such as L-arginine, Korean ginseng, Ginkgo Biloba, Damiana, various vitamins and also minerals such as calcium, iron, and zinc. In our review below, we'll look in detail at some of the key ingredients, and also discuss some of the clinical trials done on Argin Max for Women.

Arginmax Women Ingredients 

The Arginmax for Women proprietary blend contain four key ingredients including L-arginine, Korean Ginseng (Panax Ginseng), Ginkgo Biloba, and Damiana leaves - these add up to 2700mg or (2.7g). Aside from the proprietary blend, Arginmax Women also includes numerous vitamins such as vitamin A, C, E, B6, B12 and quite a few others, and it also contains minerals such as calcium (500mg), Iron, and zinc.

L-arginine is a non-essential amino acid found in a variety of foods. It plays a role in several important body functions, including cell division, wound healing, immune function, and the removal of ammonia from the body.

Arginine helps make nitric oxide, which dilates or relaxes arteries, making blood flow more freely and thus lowering blood pressure. Nitric oxide also helps prevent clot formation and plaque buildup on artery walls that can lead to a heart attack or stroke. Because of arginine's role in the production of nitric oxide, it has been suggested that the amino acid may be useful as a treatment for a variety of heart conditions. Doses as large as 30 grams of arginine per day have been used to treat congestive heart failure.

L-arginine has been found to help men in achieving erections, and it has also been reported to help improve libido for both men and women.

Ginseng is one of the most highly regarded energy tonics of Chinese herbalism. It is an herbal adaptogen, helping the body to adapt to a variety of stresses. Many Ginseng supplements combine the extract with pure root insures all the important compounds of ginseng are captured, for a broad range of ginseng activity.

Ginseng is a staple of traditional herbal medicine in Asia, and is commonly used for treating sexual dysfunction. Some studies have found that ginseng can enhance libido and sexual performance. Treatment with American ginseng also affects the central nervous system and has been shown to significantly facilitate copulatory behavior and hormone secretion. [1] Ginseng is also known to improve energy, stamina, endurance, and also stimulates the production of nitric oxide.

Damiana is a herb native to Central America and South America. The Damiana leaves are traditionally made into a Damiana tea by the native people of Central America for its aphrodisiac benefits. There are various studies that have found evidence supporting the use of Damiana to treat sexual dysfunction, improve sexual performance, and improve overall satisfaction with sex life.

A Mexican study was performed to determine the effects of Damiana for helping sexual behavior recovery in sexually inhibited subjects. Sexually exhausted male rats were treated with a combination of Damiana and Yohimbine. The results of this study found that the treatment significantly increased the percentage of males achieving one ejaculatory series and resuming a second one. Also, it found that Damiana significantly reduced the post-ejaculatory interval. These results support the use of Damiana as an aphrodisiac in folk medicine, and also its potential therapeutic effects for sexual dysfunction. [2]

Does Arginmax Work? Argin Max Studies

What makes Arginmax standout from other similar sexual health supplements is that it is backed up by quite a few clinical studies that have demonstrated its effectiveness at improving libido and sexual performance.

In a study conducted at the University of Hawaii, the sexual effects of Arginmax Women was studied. In this study, 77 female participants over the age of 21 received either a placebo or ArginMax for Women containing extracts of ginseng, ginkgo, and damiana, L-arginine, multivitamins, and minerals. After 4 weeks of supplementation, 73.5% of the ArginMax group reported improved satisfaction with sex life while just 37.2% of the placebo group reported improved satisfaction. The ArginMax group also reported improvements in "sexual desire, reduction of vaginal dryness, frequency of sexual intercourse and orgasm, and clitoral sensation. No significant side effects were noted." [3]

In another University of Hawaii study, 108 female subjects aged between 22 to 73 years of age participated in a double blind, placebo controlled study of Arginmax for Women. Half of the participants received either ArginMax Women or a placebo during the trials. The subjects were separated into premenopausal (59 females), perimenopausal (20), and postmenopausal (29 subjects). After 4 weeks of treatment, premenopausal women reported significant improvement in sexual desire (72%), and satisfaction with overall sex life (68%). Perimenopausal women reported increase in frequency of intercourse (86%), satisfaction with sexual relationship (79%), and improvement in vaginal dryness (64%). The postmenopausal women reported increased sexual desire (51% compare to only 8% of placebo group). This study demonstrated the effectiveness of Arginmax to improve satisfaction with sex life, libido, and sexual desire for women of a wide age range (22 - 73 years). [4]

Arginmax Side Effects

In the Arginmax studies, none of them had reported any significant adverse side effects of Arginmax. However, there are some potential side effects as some of the ingredients of Arginmax may have various side effects.

Ginkgo biloba can cause some gastrointestinal discomfort and headaches, and may increase bleeding and should not be used if you have clotting disorder. Other side effects of Gingko may also include headaches, nausea, and diarrhea.

Damiana is generally safe with few side effects. It should not be used by pregnant women or by women who are breast-feeding. It is not recommended for individuals who are diabetic, or have conditions such as schizophrenia, alzheimer's, or parkinson's disease.

Some arginine side effects include breathing problems, headaches, low blood pressure, diarrhea, nausea, and bloating.
