Palo Alto Paravol Sexual Enhancer

Paravol from Palo Alto Lab was originally developed and marketed specifically for post anabolic users. It was intended to combat the negative sexual side effects of using anabolic steroids. Paravol is now being sold to the general male consumer as "the ultimate male performance enhancement". As promoted by Palo Alto Labs: "Paravol (Ophenafil HCl) is the non prescription formula that gives men unmatched power, stamina and erection fullness and catapults sexual performance to the best levels of your life."

Paravol claims to be "the most powerful and effective ejaculation and orgasm enhancer on the market" with these key highlights:

  • Improved Erection Quality and Firmness
  • Dramatically Improved Sexual Stamina & Energy
  • Lasting Results & Confidence
  • Longer, More Intense Orgasms
  • “Next Generation” Product Formulation

Does Paravol Work?

The first and foremost question on the minds of many our our readers is does XYZ supplement work? In short, Paravol does live up to its expectations, in most cases. From a personal standpoint, and first person experience, I will say that it works, and it worked well, but this doesn't necessarily mean it works for everyone. I won't get into the personal details here. =) If you've used Paravol, please share your review of it here.

In a quick search of the user reviews of Paravol floating around the web, you'll find that while most experience some degree of success with paravol, there are users who experience no benefit at all - and this is to be expected. In all my years of using and researching supplements, I haven't really came across any one supplement that's 100% effective for all users. Well, with the exception of maybe protein supplements.

To gain a better understanding how Paravol works, we need to look at some of the ingredients contained in this sexual enhancer.

Horny Goat Weed - is used in traditional Chinese medicine. Horny Goat Weed has been used as an aphrodisiac for hundreds of years, and research has also proven its effects on improving sexual desire and performance. So how does Horny Goat Weed work? Research has shown that Horny Goat Weed can inhibit an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase (AChE). AChE rapidly stops neurotransmission at cholinergic synapses like those found in the brain and at neuromuscular junctions, which are needed for speedy responses in the neuromuscular system. By inhibiting AChE, Horny Goat Weed supports higher levels of the key cholinergic neurotransmitters associated with sexual arousal. Read more about Horny Goat Weed in detail here.

Tribulus Terrestris Extract - Tribulus Terrestris is NOT a hormone. Tribulus increases testosterone through increasing lutenizing hormone (LH) in your body. LH tells your body to produce testosterone. Why is this beneficial? Simply because Tribulus is not a hormone supplement, it merely works within the body's natural limits helping you achieve muscle and strength. Read about Tribulus here.

Long Jack (Eurycoma Longifolia Jack) - also known as Tongkat Ali (promoted as Longjack). Tongkat ali is a root that grows in the rainforests of Southeast Asia. Similar to Tribulus, the herb works by affecting the lutenizing hormones in the body, which signal testosterone production. Longjack is used as a tonic and also as an aphrodisiac. Read more about Tongkat Ali (Longjack) here.

Avena Sativa - As unusual as it may sound, Avena Sativa is actually an oat. This 'oat' has many benefits, and has been used for a long time. Here are some uses: relaxation, anti-depressant, herpes, arthritis, indigestion, wrinkles, hemorrhoids, lower cholesterol and others. What we're really interested in here is how Avena Sativa works to boost our testosterone levels, and help you gain more muscles.

It's not until recent years that Avena Sativa has been found to help boost testosterone and also act as an aphrodisiac. Research have found Avena Sativa works by freeing up testosterone that's stuck to other compounds in your body. With age, more testosterone gets bound, and bound testosterone isn't as effective as free testosterone. So, instead of increasing the amount of testosterone, it makes your available amount of testosterone 'more efficient' so-to-speak.

L-Arginine - 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. Read more on L Arginine here.

Chrysin - a naturally occurring isoflavone chemically extracted from the plant Passiflora coerulea that's been found to help increase blood serum levels of testosterone. Chrysin helps by reducing estrogen levels by reducing its conversion from testosterone. Various studies have found Chrysin to significantly improve overall sexual function, increase sperm count, and increase sperm count. Read about Chrysin in detail here.

As you can see from the above, many of these ingredients in Paravol are conducive to the production of testosterone, and hence increase sex drive and help improve sexual performance. For example, ingredients such as horny goat weed, tribulus, avena, and Tongkat Ali all in some way help increase the testosterone levels, while an ingredient such as Arginine helps increase the blood flow in the user's body. I don't think I need to explain how that is beneficial. =)

Palo Alto Lab Paravol Study

Although I can find numerous studies showing the benefits of the individual ingredients in Paravol, I couldn't find any studies on Paravol itself, aside from the one study highlighted on the official Paravol website. So whatever this study claims, take it with a grain of salt.

It was a double blind clinical study done on the Protodioscin of standardized extract of tribulus terrestris. The research found dramatically improved erection fullness, sexual stamina, duration of male climax, and reduced recovery times between sessions. Quoted from the study:

"Not only did users experience a rejuvenated sex drive, but due to Paravol’s unique formulation, they also enjoyed increased stamina, erectile strength, and most unique, climaxes that were dramatically longer and more intense than ones they had experienced before.

First, Paravol dramatically stimulates natural testosterone production within the body, while also balancing the body’s estrogen level. The natural boost in testosterone levels produced by Paravol leads to increased vigor and sexual stamina.

 Next, Paravol stimulates sperm and seminal fluid production. The increased ejaculate volume is what enables men to experience more powerful and a greater number of contractions, and as many of you know, more contractions mean longer, more intense climaxes.

This also allows for multiple performances, since there is greater supply of semen. Paravol also increases nitric oxide levels, which results in greater blood flow to the genitals, hence much firmer, more powerful, longer lasting erections."

While the claims of the study sounds a little over promising, user results in the real world with Paravol aren't too far off, myself included. The average user can expect to benefit from Paravol, and it should be noted here that you may experience more frequent random woodys and feel randy like an 18 year old! Not at all bad by any means. =)

Note: Paravol is discontinued.
