Male Enhancement Pill Types – Including Semen Volume, Penis Enlargement and Erectile Dysfunction(ED)
With the frequent bombardment by advertisers of various male enhancement pills and products it can be difficult to gain a clear understanding of what the different products actually do or claim to do. The products with the most name brand recognition are Viagra and Cialis which are prescription pills designed to treat erectile dysfunction. Erectile Dysfunction is generally defined as the inability to achieve an erection for long enough to have sex.
These mainstream medications are not designed to improve fertility, increase desire, semen volume or penis size. While Viagra and Cialis receive the most exposure due to the large advertising budgets of their manufactures there are also many other male supplement pills available on the internet. The male sexual enhancers available on the internet generally fall into three categories.
Three Categories of Male Enhancement Pill
The three main categories of male enhancement pills (supplements) on the internet are semen volume enhancement pills, penis enlargement pills and pills targeted to increase libido. Most of these products share several common traits including: made from natural ingredients, available without a prescription, improve sexual desire and require regular use for maximum effect.
The quality and effectiveness of different supplements varies widely from one product to another, even with similar ingredients. This variation often depends on whether supplements are manufactured in the U.S. or abroad and a manufacture"s quality control standards. Additionally, reputable manufactures provide a money back guarantee, list product ingredients and contact information.
Semen Volume Enhancement Pills/Supplements
Semen pills are designed to either increase semen volume, increase sperm fertility or both. Men looking to increase semen volume take these products to increase the strength, duration and intensity of ejaculations. This is because men can increase ejaculations by increasing semen volume. Semen volume pills are usually responsible for the “cumshot" scenes found in adult movies. Many volume pills also enhance pleasure, increase libido and have positive effects on sperm unless they are solely intended for male fertility improvement. A sub category of the semen volume pills are supplements that only focus on enhancing male fertility by affecting the quality and quantity of sperm.
Semen or sperm pills are not designed to enlarge the penis or target stamina. Common ingredients include zinc which is essential for sperm production and Swedish flower pollen as well as other ingredients that enhance sperm quality and sperm count.
Penis Enlargement Pills/Supplements
Penis enlargement supplements are the next most recognizable male enhancement product after Viagra and Cialis. These products claim to work by increasing the blood flow to the penis and expanding the Corpus Cavernosa tissue of the penis.
Additional claimed benefits include harder erections, increased stamina and increased desire. Common ingredients in this category are Ginko Biloba and Ginseng both of which are natural herbs which studies suggest increase blood flow to different tissues of the human body including the penis. Penis enlargement pills don"t have any noticeable effect on semen volume or fertility.
Libido and Stamina Enhancement Supplements/Pills
Male enhancement formulas frequently make claims to increase stamina, improve erection strength, libido and enhance overall feelings of well being. Often specific sexual benefits of products in this category are not clear on the label or advertising. These products are found online as well as offline in locations such as convenience store checkout lines or at gas stations. The ingredients are generally of a tonic nature meaning that lots of herbs and supplements with different functions are mixed together. It is not uncommon to find B vitamins and Ginko or Yohimbe as ingredients. Many of these ingredients may in fact be part of a man"s current supplement and diet schedule depending on his current level of nutrition. Products in this category often share more commonality with energy drinks such as Redline than with Penis Enlargement Supplements or Semen Volume Pills. However, this does not mean general libido enhancers can be summarily discounted.
While this article focuses on the primary types of male enhancement pills increasingly manufactures of male enhancement pills, available online, offer their formula in patch form. “Medication" patches are thin patches with a sticky backing allowing application to the skin and delivery of the supplements by absorption through the skin. This change in supplement delivery method doesn"t necessarily indicate a change in the actual ingredient formula. A well known example of a medication patch is the nicotine patch used to stop smoking. The increasing availability of male enhancement formulas in patch form means that men who aren"t able to swallow a pill or capsule are still able to gain the benefits of certain male enhancement products. Male enhancement supplement in patch form deliver a consistent amount of supplement to the body and can help with scheduling of regular dosages. Often product use instructions indicate the patch need only be changed in intervals varying between 24 and 72 hours which can make it easier and more convenient to take the supplement consistently.
The Bottom Line
These categorizations will assist in making it easier to sort through the deluge of male enhancement advertisements with more clarity. Specifically, it can be helpful to know what male enhancement options are available and what is possible. Just as there are a wide variety of male enhancement options there are equally diverse opinions on whether male enhancement is useful. Regardless of opinion it is indisputable that society is increasingly consuming products that enhance sexual experiences for men and women. It is important to note that all individuals, whether they have a medical condition or not, should consult with an accredited medical professional before taking supplements. Additionally, caution is advised with products that contain Yohimbe as certain undesirable side effects, such as sweating and increased heart rate, have been reported. The good news is that there are plenty of potent and exciting male enhancement formulas for men to try which don"t use Yohimbe as an ingredient.
