Nowadays, there are a number of male enhancement products available that claim to improve your performance to an unbelievable extent. But, for evident and obvious reasons, many such things are just marketing gimmicks to rip you off your money as well as your dignity.
Hello, I’m Jason. I’m a 27-year-old fitness model and gym trainer. I’ve battled with erectile dysfunction long enough to empathize with the ones who suffer from the same problems.
And, today I’m reviewing a famous male enhancement formula: the VigRX Plus Male Enhancement Supplement, along with sharing my personal experience with the product with you all.
About VigRX Plus
Unlike your familiar Viagra, which raises your blood pressure and gives you an erection at the expense of your cardiac health, VigRX aims to rectify the problem of your dysfunction, to regularise the blood flow in the corpus cavernosum (penile tissues).
First launched in the year 2002, the formulation of the product was met with success and has made it a trustworthy name in the field.
How does it claim to work?
VigRX Plus focuses on solving the particular issue of erectile dysfunction in your body and helps to increases the blood flow into the penis. It relaxes the mind, helping to improve your libido and provides you with harder and longer-lasting erections.
The product claims to:
- Increase penile blood circulation
- Increase stamina and libido

- Strengthen and tone the sexual glands.

This is the main active ingredient in the supplement. Bioperine is an essential herbal constituent, extracted from black pepper fruits that contain 95% of Piperine. It improves the body’s capability to absorb the nutrients, hence increasing their bioavailability and potency. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3478157/
This is known to fortify and strengthen the nervous system immensely and has been used as an aphrodisiac for a long time. It boosts sexual stamina and enhances erections, providing you with better orgasms.
The extracts of the Epimedium leaves provide a powerful PDE-5 inhibitor that develops the nitric oxide the body requires to relax. It dilates the corpus cavernosum and increases the blood flow into the penis, thereby giving you harder erections. Still, wonder why it’s called the Horny Goat Weed?

Other minor ingredients in the formulations are
This male enhancement supplement contains for the greater part an entirely natural composition of beneficial herbs. It has no side effects as such and is quite safe to be taken regularly for any duration of time. I had no problems at all getting used to the formulation.
However, do consult a physician before starting on the product and be informed of all that can trigger an allergic reaction in your body. Do not consume it if you are sensitive or allergic to any of its ingredients.
What could have been better?
The only serious complaint I had about this particular product is that the effects seem to wane off after you have stopped taking the pills. It only seems to work if you’re on it indefinitely.
The price is a bit high that makes for an expensive purchase, especially if you decide to take it for a prolonged period of time.
The product takes almost forever to work. And the results will vary from person to person depending upon the nature and extent of their problems.
I started taking the supplement solely as an experiment to test the validity of the claims. The decision of being a fitness model and trainer had stemmed from the dire situation of having been diagnosed with juvenile diabetes mellitus type 2 at the age of 25.
Things had taken a turn for the worse when the condition began to affect my sexual health. Fatigue and exhaustion were a constant state that lead to obesity. And I could also feel my libido and arousal go down along with that.
As a result, my self-esteem and confidence went down the drain when I realized I was losing erection mid-performance. Social and romantic life had become a joke that pulled me down into severe depression.
All I could think of was to find a solution, a cure, a miracle actually, to come my way. I was losing my sleepover endless internet research about enhancers and supplements and what not. The one time I did try Viagra, my blood pressure shot up threateningly. It was as if I had aged a million years.
It was around this time that I came across quite a few positive reviews about VigRX Plus. I carefully read out the compositions that assured me of no harm even if the formula failed to work. So, I finally tested out the product after a couple of days.
I took 2 pills per day according to the instructions. I did consult a physician before starting on the product and only did so when he declared it safe.
For the first 2-3 weeks, I felt nothing apart from the occasional bursts of energy that is expected of a typical health supplement. Everything remained in the same miserable way, and I was almost convinced that I had been scammed. But, I still decided to finish the file before I came to any definite conclusion and continued with it.
It wasn’t till the 4th week that I woke up one day feeling quite refreshed and astonishingly enough, with a considerable bulge in my pants.
Over the next couple of weeks, I religiously took the supplement and paired it up with some penile exercises. It helped immensely, and as my belief and faith in the product got stronger, it seemed to work faster for me.
Around the same time, I hit the gym and turned towards regular workout sessions. Health improved to a great extent, and my sexual performance perked up as well! Although it wasn’t a ground-breaking or bed-shaking outcome, the pills did provide me with enough stamina to hold my erection throughout intercourse. My libido also went up to a noticeable extent by the end of the second month of this regime.
I felt more relaxed and confident and could perform well without taking too much pressure. The erections also became longer-lasting and harder with prolonged use of the formula.
VigRX Plus is one male enhancement supplement that showed some admirable results, even if they weren’t exactly the kind that screamed “A HUGE MANHOOD,” if one may put it that way.
No, although it didn’t increase the size of my penis, it helped me get harder and long-lasting erections by easing my mind and regulating penile blood circulation.
I would suggest the product only to those who are ready to be patient with it. Although initially, it may seem like a scam, it will have some visible effects if you give it time.
I really don’t have any complaints as it helped fix my dwindling social life, giving me the confidence I needed, and now I have a beautiful partner I couldn’t have enough of! 🙂
