Phallyx is a pharmaceutical preparation that is specifically aimed at reducing the dilemma and emotional mess associated with erectile dysfunction in male.
Men may face difficulty in maintaining an erection long and strong enough to enjoy a satisfactory sexual experience that is normal and may occur due to stress, anxiety or any other hassle. The condition calls for therapeutic intervention if the situation is encountered frequently enough to affect your relationship.
According to National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases, up to 30 million men are affected by erectile dysfunction in the US. The incidence of erectile dysfunction increases with age, with up to 4% of men in their fifties, 17% of men in sixties and about half of the men over the age of seventy-five suffer from this disorder.
The condition may be temporary or a sign of some underlying disease. There are many treatment options available for erectile dysfunction from drugs to vitamins and herbal supplements. Where some cases of erectile dysfunction may require a proper investigation and line of treatment by a physician, some instances can be improved by over the counter preparations that may follow a conventional approach or traditional one.
Phallyx is one such move towards improving the ‘virility, vitality and vigor’ with advancing age among a lengthy list of products for such purpose. The present analysis will review the effectiveness of Phallyx in enhancing the male characteristics.
The manufacturer and the claims
The manufacturer of the product also goes by the name of Phallyx. The company claims that their product is all about boosting sexual performance and increasing virility. The company presents Phallyx as a ‘natural dietary supplement’ that has created hype on prominent media channels as CNN, NBC, and The Doctors and so on.
The claims of Phallyx gather round the following:
- Increased libido
- Increased sexual endurance
- Stronger and maintained erections
- On overall boost to personality with increased self-confidence and poise
The ingredients of Phallyx
Phallyx claims to be a combination of ancient and traditional herbal products that have passed the test and trials with time and latest medical innovation in this field. Let us have a look at what the ingredients are:
- Horny Goat Weed Extract
- Muira Puama Extract
- Saw Palmetto Berry
- Maca Root
- Bioperine Extract
L-Arginine is amino acids that are considered the building blocks of proteins in our body. It is converted into nitric oxide in our body that causes vasodilatation and a resulting increase in local blood supply to the penis.
Ina local study, about one-third of men took L-Arginine in the amounts of 5 grams per day for six weeks and experienced improved erections.
“Erectile dysfunction is caused in part by poor penile circulation. Nitric oxide causes the blood vessels to dilate, so there is some rationale for L-Arginine perhaps having some effects,” says Josephine Briggs, MD, Director of National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health.
There have been extensive studies regarding the role of L-Arginine in improving the case scenario of erectile dysfunction, however, the Mayo Clinic gives a C grade when it comes to scientific evidence backing L-Arginine role in erectile dysfunction. L-Arginine is safe and generally well tolerated by most men and when combined with other supplementary products, our research found it an effective element.
Individuals on blood pressure medicine should take L-Arginine supplements cautiously as it lowers blood pressure and may affect blood sugar levels too.
Horny Goat Weed Extract is used in Chinese herbal medicine for erectile dysfunction and low sex drive. Although the research is still in its preface, a 2008 study revealed that the extract from horny goat weed contains a chemical that blocks the enzyme responsible for restriction of blood flow to the penis (WebMD). The chemical (epimedium) in the herb was similar to phosphodiesterase inhibitor that is used in many conventional drugs used for erectile dysfunction.
Fewer side effects were observed with this herbal extract if taken for a minimal time, some months might be. The side effects include nosebleed, dizziness and a rapid heartbeat. If taken in larger amounts at once, it can cause spasms and breathing difficulties.
Muira Puama Extract is a Brazilian plant also known by the names of ‘potency plant’ or ‘erection root’. It is known for its fertility enhancing, libido improving, and erection supporting qualities in males.
Dr. Jacques Waynberg performed a study using Muira Puama on 262 men who had a lack of libido and impotence (lack of ability to sustain or attain erection) in Paris France, which was published in the American Journal of Natural Medicine in 1994. The men were given 1 to 1.5 grams of Muira Puama 4:1 extract. Within two weeks 62% of the men reported that the extract “had a dynamic effect”, with an increase in both libido and erectile function. 51% of the men who desired to have more erections said the herb was “beneficial”.
The herb requires an extensive research though; current theories about its mode of action are via increasing the blood supply to the penis.
Patients with a heart condition and those on blood pressure medication should take it with caution.
Saw Palmetto Berry extract is used by two million Americans to treat benign prostate hypertrophy (Mayo Clinic). Its other benefits include an increased sex drive and its use for improving the sperm count in men is under research.
Saw palmetto exerts its effects by increasing the testosterone levels in the body.
Some side effects of this herbal extract are a headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, constipation and diarrhea.
Maca root powder is a popular aphrodisiac agent in herbal medicine and its role in the sexual health of either sex is a topic of research. It supports a healthy testosterone level in the body and it’s accompanying up shots as increased libido, increased stamina, and energy levels.
Maca root powder also has a positive impact on the blood supply of the penis, a recent study involving men with mild ED and treated with Maca showed that half of them reported significant improvements in terms of ED and sexual well-being.
The Bioperine extract is taken from black pepper and its main use is to increase the bioavailability of nutrients and thereby indirectly enhancing the blood supply to the penis and increasing testosterone levels.
Conclusion on the ingredients
The ingredients in Phallyx seem to be in the right combination with Bioperine, which further increases the bioavailability of primary components of the supplement. The claims of Phallyx match the individual ingredients
- Support of sexual hormone balance
- Increased libido
- Increased sexual endurance and stamina
- Powerful and maintained erections
However, the claim of increased size and girth of the penis is a temporary effect and no ingredient has individual qualities of a permanent and long lasting effect.
Final say on Phallyx
Phallyx claims its supplement to be devoid of any side effects, however, individual side effects of ingredients are observed while researching the components of Phallyx. Caution is advised wherever necessary.
The company offers no insight to any independent third party testing of the supplement or any information on trials done on the specific supplement.
The site offers no details on the quantity of individual ingredients used in the supplement and our guess is that it is a proprietary blend.
