HONOLULU—ArginMax® increases libido in women, according to a clinical study published in the peer-reviewed, Journal of Sex & Marital Therapy (Volume 32, Issue 369). The study will be presented at the 19th World Congress for Sexual Health in Goteborg, Sweden, June 21st to 29th 2009.
The double blind, placebo-controlled study found improvement in women’s sexual desire and overall satisfaction in women of differing menopausal status following nutritional supplementation with ArginMax. The results of this study corroborate the impressive results of an earlier study: "A Double Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study of ArginMax, A Nutritional Supplement for Enhancement of Female Sexual Dysfunction" published in Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy (2001;27(5)).
The first study of its kind for a nutritional product in the sexual health category, it included 108 women, ages 22 to 73, enrolled as participants lacking in sexual desire. A total of 55 received the nutritional supplement and 53 received placebo. The Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) was used to evaluate the level of sexual health before starting and after completing the four-week long study.
At the end of four weeks, 72 percent of the pre-menopausal women increased the levels of sexual desire (statistically significant at P=0.03) and 68 percent increased in satisfaction with overall sex life. Among the peri-menopausal women, 79 percent increased in satisfaction with sexual relationship (statistically significant at P=0.03) and 64 percent improved in vaginal dryness and degree of clitoral sensation.
Eighty-six percent of the women in the peri-menopausal group reported improvement in frequency of intercourse (statistically significant at P<0.01). Fifty-six percent of the women in the post-menopausal group increased in sexual desire, compared to the 8 percent in the placebo group (statistically significant at P<0.01).
ArginMax® for Women combines L-arginine, Panax ginseng, Ginkgo biloba, damiana leaf, vitamins A, C, E, B6, B12, biotin, folate, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, thiamin; and the minerals calcium, iron and zinc.
