Mild stimulants may also have a positive effect on sexual performance, and for this reason, guarana (paullinia cupana) extract is added. This plant is common in Brazil and contains caffeine, theophylline and theobromine. It is a frequently used as an additive in energy drinks and food supplements and is popular for its energy increasing effects. Another natural plant extract with aphrodisiac properties is added to this supplement. This is known as tribulus terrestris (sometimes called goathead), and it is an herbaceous perennial plant found worldwide. The active components of this plant extract include saponins and protodioscin.
Researchers suspect that it may improve sexual performance due to its androgen (male hormone) increasing properties. It might also work by causing nitric oxide to be released from nerve endings in the penis. An amino acid called L-Arginine which is contained in this supplement is known to play an important role in the production of proteins. When taken, it may act by causing the blood vessels of the penis to dilate, causing an increase in penile blood flow and leading to an erection. This supplement also contains maca root extract, fenugreek extract and vitamin B6.
