Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy general information
What is Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy used for?
Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules are nutritional supplement containing a blend of natural herbal extracts that are used to support sexual experience and hormonal balance in women. An imbalance in hormone levels, particularly the female hormone oestrogen can cause problems such as premenstrual syndrome with symptoms including mood swings and fatigue; also reduced sexual desire, which is a common problem with women. Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules can help promote hormonal balance and reduce symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance. Loss of oestrogen production by the ovaries as women approach menopause can cause a wide range of moderate to severe symptoms, including hot flushes, night sweats, reduced libido and mood swings. Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules are used to help reduce the severity of these symptoms and improve the quality of life in menopausal women.
How does Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy work?
Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules contain natural herbal ingredients that have been used in traditional medicine for their properties as enhancers of women’s sexual health and fertility. More recently research has focussed on some of these natural herbal extracts to determine their possible efficacy in helping with imbalance in female hormone levels that can cause problems with women’s sexual experience and general health and wellbeing.
Libifem in Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules contains an extract of the fenugreek plant Trigonella foenum-graecum that has been found to have several health benefits1, 2, 3. Fenugreek seed extracts were used by ancient Egyptian and Greek civilisations for various health problems1. It is also a widely used ingredient in modern herbal medicine and has been found to contain several pharmacologically active compounds including medicinal alkaloids, steroid compounds and saponins that can mimic human hormones3. Low levels of free oestradiol and free testosterone are linked to low arousal and desire in women, respectively. A recent placebo controlled study into the effects of Libifem on sex hormones and sexual function in healthy menstruating women who reported low sexual drive, found a significant increase in free testosterone and oestradiol (the most active form of the female hormone oestrogen), as well as improved sexual desire and arousal4. Another placebo controlled study into the effects of extract of fenugreek husk in postmenopausal women found a significant increase in oestradiol levels and improvements on various postmenopausal discomforts and quality of life including a reduction in hot flashes5.
Shatavari in Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules is an extract of the root of the Asparagus racemosus plant, which has been used for centuries in Ayurveda, an ancient holistic healing system originally developed in India. Shatavari, also known as the “Queen of herbs”, is used for its many medicinal properties, particularly for its support of the female reproductive system and its reputation for improving fertility and vitality6. Shatavari in Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy contain several pharmacologically active phytochemicals including steroidal saponins, also known as Shatavarins (which are phytoestrogens due to their ability to mimic human oestrogen), alkaloids (which have several medicinal properties) and flavonoids, which are powerful antioxidants with anti-inflammatory and immunosupportive properties 6. Due to its phytoestrogen component, Shatavari in Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules is considered helpful for maintaining normal menstrual cycles and reducing some symptoms of menopause due to loss of oestrogen7.
Rhodiola rosea in Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules is an extract of a flowering plant grown in cold northern regions including the Arctic and at high altitudes in central Asia. Also known as arctic root, roseroot and golden root, Rhodiola rosea has been used for centuries as a traditional herbal remedy in Europe and in traditional Chinese medicine in Asia for its many properties including enhancing endurance and fertility; also reducing fatigue and depression. Rhodiola extract contains many biologically active, phytochemicals including antioxidants like proanthocyanidins, and is considered an adaptogen, which is a substance that helps the body cope better with stress (physical, chemical, and environmental) without unwanted side effects, via its effects of the central nervous system, immune system and endocrine system (hormone regulation)8, 9. There is some clinical evidence for benefit from Rhodiola rosea in mild to moderate clinical depression10, for fatigue11 and improved cognitive function12. In a study of the possible benefit of Rhodiola rosea for symptoms of oestrogen loss in menopausal women, it was concluded that Rhodiola rosea extracts may act as a natural selective oestrogen receptor modulator, to improve some menopause related symptoms including mood and cognitive function13.
Vitamin B6 (or pyridoxine) in Womens PRO-EREX Intimacy capsules plays an important role in many functions of the body including the synthesis of neurotransmitters, like norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine, which are involved in mood regulation. Clinical studies indicate that pyridoxine may be helpful for premenstrual syndrome (PMS)14, relieving anxiety and mood changes associated with PMS and premenstrual depression, but does not help with physical symptoms15.
