Do sexual enhancement supplements work for men or women? Certain supplement ingredients may help treat erectile dysfunction in men. Some ingredients and formulas may also increase libido (sexual drive) in men and women, although the evidence for this is limited.
The next question is, which supplements for sexual enhancement actually provide ingredients that might work, at the right dosage, and without contaminants or illegally added drugs? To help answer this question, ConsumerLab.com purchased a variety of supplements intended for sexual enhancement containing popular ingredients such as yohimbe, epimedium (horny goat weed), and L-arginine.
Among the ten selected products, only three passed quality tests. Four contained less of a key ingredient than claimed on the label, one was contaminated with an unacceptable level of lead, and two products lacked FDA-required information on their labeling. None of the products, however, was "spiked" with drugs for erectile dysfunction.
