Sexual Health for Her

Not enough evidence to know if it works

Virmax For Her likely increases blood circulation, which may improve sensitivity and sexual satisfaction. However, the formula’s ingredients have never been studied specifically for effects on female libido or sexual improvement.

Another issue is Virmax For Her’s proprietary blend. Without specific ingredient information, I can’t tell if this product contains enough of its active ingredients to promote results.

Male enhancement supplements are common enough, but few companies produce sexual enhancement supplements like Virmax For Her.

Developed by manufacturers of the popular male enhancer Virmax, Virmax For Her is a “pleasure enhancer for women of all ages.” Meant to increase sex drive and pleasurable sensation, Virmax For Her puts the spotlight on women.

Whether you’re looking to increase your own satisfaction or are interested for your partners’ sake, I’ll help you make a decision on Virmax For Her by highlighting important information relating to the formula.

What Ingredients Are in Virmax For Her?

The Virmax For Her formula resembles Virmax’s formula. However, Virmax For Her loses some ingredients specifically for men and gains a few especially for women.

Together, these ingredients form a 367.5 mg proprietary blend, with an additional 150 mg epimedium.

Epimedium

You may recognize this ingredient as horny goat weed. A flowering plant often considered an aphrodisiac, epimedium is said to increase libido and nitric oxide production. Because nitric oxide expands blood vessels, it allows more blood to flow to sensitive areas and increase satisfaction.

Several studies support epimedium’s use as a sexual enhancer for both men and women. [1]

However, the recommended dosage is generally 250-1000 mg daily. That’s quite a bit more than the 150 mg you’re getting with Virmax For Her.

L-Arginine

Like epimedium, l-arginine increases nitric oxide production. [2]

This amino acid allows you to experience greater sensitivity and, ultimately, more satisfying orgasms.

However, sexual satisfaction through l-arginine requires a daily dosage of 1.5-4 grams. That’s a far cry from whatever amount is included in the 367.5 mg proprietary blend in Virmax For Her.

Ginkgo Biloba

Ginkgo biloba also supports Virmax For Her’s efforts to improve blood circulation. Perhaps a more useful benefit for women, however, is ginkgo’s ability to eliminate side effects of antidepressants. [3]

Because antidepressants sometimes decrease sex drive, ginkgo may restore libido to healthy levels.

Kudzu Root

Because kudzu is a common treatment for menopausal symptoms, many women erroneously assume it also improves sex drive. However, this isn’t the case. While kudzu reduces hot flashes and night sweats, it has no effect on libido. [4]

In fact, some women even blame kudzu root for a decrease in sex drive.

Hawthorn Berries

Male sexual enhancer manufacturers often say hawthorn berries increase sex drive.[5]

However, there is no evidence this is the case. No studies have been done on hawthorn berries’ effect on libido. Even the very limited anecdotal support for hawthorn berries doesn’t validate its use in Virmax For Her—it relates to men only.

Cnidium Monnier

This flowering plant is rumored to increase sex drive by boosting blood circulation. [6]

However, like kudzu and hawthorn berry, there aren’t convincing supporting studies to validate its inclusion in Virmax For Her.

Epimedium and l-arginine are impressive additions to Virmax For Her. L-arginine increases blood flow to sensitive sexual organs, while epimedium improves libido. However, I’m not equally pleased with the other ingredients in Virmax For Her.

Hawthorn berries have never been tested for sexual properties, and kudzu is even linked to a reduction in sex drive.

Furthermore, the Virmax For Her proprietary blend masks individual ingredient amounts, meaning I can’t even tell if effective ingredients like arginine will produce benefits. If it isn’t included in its recommended dosage, it won’t do much to improve sexual sensation.

Considering the small 367.5 mg proprietary blend, I doubt there’s enough of each ingredient to provide impressive results.

Can Virmax For Her Cause Side Effects?

Another issue with proprietary blends is they don’t allow us to assess side effect risk. Some ingredients cause side effects if contained in high dosages, but without individual ingredient quantities, it’s impossible to know where ingredient content is high enough to trigger side effects.

However, because Virmax For Her contains ingredients that expand blood vessels, the following side effects are possible.

• Dizziness
• Nosebleed
• Abdominal pain
• Bloating
• Low blood pressure
• Fatigue

If you’re taking medication for high blood pressure, Virmax For Her may interact poorly and cause blood pressure to drop too low. This induces fatigue and dizziness—not exactly states that get you in the mood.

Talk to your doctor about Virmax For Her if you’re interested in improving your sex life but take hypertension medication.

How Do You Use Virmax For Her?

I was pleasantly surprised by Virmax For Her’s usage instructions. Usually, sexual stimulants ask you to plan sexual activity in advance for best results. While this is fine for some people, it does rob you of sexual spontaneity.

Virmax For Her, by contrast, offers you both options. You can either take 2 tablets 45 minutes before sexual activity, or once a day for round-the-clock sexual enhancement.

With these options, you have the freedom to choose how you express your sexuality and how you support it with Virmax For Her.

Is Virmax For Her Expensive?

VirmaxInfo.com doesn’t directly sell its products. Instead, Virmax For Her and other Virmax products retail through nationwide distributors like CVS, Rite Aid, and Target. The recommended retail price is $19.99, though online retailers typically sell Virmax For Her for less.

The best deals I found on this product include:

• TigerFitness.com: $13.25
• A1Supplements.com: $14.95
• Drugstore.com: $18.99

This sounds like an impressive price, but remember that Virmax For Her contains just 15 servings per bottle. That lasts a little over 2 weeks if you choose to take the supplement daily. If you’d rather take it as needed, you’ll get 7.5 individual uses. That’s about $2.66 per day or sexual session.

This still isn’t a bad deal. It sticks to Virmax’s previous approach of offering moderately effective sexual enhancement for a low price.

Should You Try Virmax For Her?

Virmax For Her likely increases blood circulation, which may improve sensitivity and sexual satisfaction. However, the formula’s ingredients have never been studied specifically for effects on female libido or sexual improvement.

Another issue is Virmax For Her’s proprietary blend. Without specific ingredient information, I can’t tell if this product contains enough of its active ingredients to promote results.

Because the original Virmax proved a decent option for low-priced male enhancement, Virmax For Her might follow the same path. However, there’s no way to be sure until more customer reviews emerge.
