1. Sexual Health Supplements and where do they come from?
Male Sexual Health Supplements is a topic that most men don't wish to talk about, even though there are thousands of other men searching for natural male sexual health supplements. One of the main reason's men look for help is due to what is known as Erectile dysfunction (ED). Erectile dysfunction, is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse such as lack of sexual desire and problems with ejaculation or orgasm.
Natural male enhancement supplements come as an alternative to prescription medications, such as Viagra, cialis... except they are a lot cheaper and are available without prescription. If you find it hard to believe that using such natural products will actually result in the increase of the volume and size of your aroused penis, you should take into consideration that prescription medicines are made from originally natural ingredients as well. The problem is that their once natural components have been modified so dramatically that there is hardly anything natural in them now.
For the most part, herbal alternatives are distillants from the roots and leaves of plants and trees, which are often enriched with amino acids, vitamins and other nutrients. The functionality of herbal extracts, in part, is to increase blood flow, not just to the genitals, but to all parts of the body, including the brain. Also other positive effects have been noticed, including increased energy, enhanced recovery and growth from exercise, and greater sense of well being.
2. What do Male Enhancement Supplements do and what scientific studies give evidence to support this?
Sexual Health Supplements have a very simple function and that is to improve circulation and expand blood vessels throughout the body, including the male genitalia. This is done through a mixture of herbal supplements that are ground into a fine powder and then made into capsules or tablets. Herbal male enhancement formulas are more popular than prescriptions like Viagra, mainly because of price, but also due to the fact that they are all natural and tend to have less side effects than prescription drugs.
Various clinical studies have shown that certain plants and herbs may provide benefits for male sexual health, including those for libido, performance, endurance, sperm production and incontinence.

- DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone)-the most abundant steroid hormone in our bodies. (Hormones in this category include oestrogen, testosterone, and cortisone.) DHEA, can convert to either testosterone or oestrogen. It reaches its peak when we're in our twenties and then performs a dramatic disappearing act as we age.
