So medications for psychological disorders, anxiety. And if it’s taken with certain things like St John’s war or melatonin, it can cause what’s called hypomanic symptoms. So where you’re, um, potentially in a detrimental fashion, really too awake and energetic and doing things that are out of character for you. So you have to take this carefully. Max one is max performer and max performer has the same exact statement on its website as, as direction, which is, which is exactly that the FDA hasn’t reviewed or condos any of the statements, and this is not intended to cure, prevent, or diagnose any sort of disease. So again, it’s done for liability, but it points out that the FDA is not regulating this. So this supplement has three main active ingredients. So it includes Maca root powder, which we talked about. It also includes horny goat wheat. And lastly it includes Korean red ging or Panax ging.
And this is also thought to increase the production of nitric oxide. And interestingly it’s been studied pretty reasonably well, and they only looked at a small number of patients. And in all these studies, they really focused on healthy men with erectile dysfunction. So this may not apply to people who have other morbidities. And in this study they looked at 90 men and they found that it was 60% effective. So of those who it was effective for, they had an increase in penile rigidity, girth, the duration of their erection and libido and overall satisfaction. So could it be effective, potentially it’s been studied, but there are some really significant side effects here. The number one and most common side effect is insomnia. You have to be really careful when taking this with any sort of stimulus. So caffeine, Sudafed, things like that, because it can actually speed up your heart rate pretty quickly.
You also have to be careful when you’re taking it, if you have any sort of immunosuppressive condition. So if you have lupus transplant, if you have diabetes, this can be contraindicated in people with those conditions as well. The next supplement is a via and we’ve already discussed all the main active ingredients in this particular supplement. And they include the medium or horny goat weed Hico Belova POME granite, a G sing root extract. And the last supplement we’re gonna discuss is big RX. Interestingly, this particular supplement has undergone an actual clinical trial. And so there is one paper which goes over this exact formulation and tries it against men who are taking a placebo medication. So what they did in this particular trial was funded by an Indian pharmaceutical company called basic life sciences, and they took 76 men and they randomized them to take either two tablets of big RX or take a placebo.
And what they found was they found improvement in five distinct domains. These included erectile function, orgasmic function, sexual desire, intercourse satisfaction, and overall satisfaction. So they, the nice part about this particular medication or supplement is that it’s been studied in a systematic way and published in the biomedical literature further where this particular supplement is endorsed by a physician who I could actually find in Google. His name is Dr. Steven Lamb, and he is the director of the men’s health clinic at New York university school of medicine. So I think that there is some validity to this supplement. It’s been studied in this exact formulation and it’s being sold presumably in the exact formulation that it was studied. And so if you’re gonna try one, this may be a reasonable one. They also didn’t find any really significant side effects in this study. But again, they only looked at normal, healthy men.
So you do need to talk to your doctor if you have other comorbidities or other medical problems, so they can see if this is safe for you to, but what I do think is important is that men’s health and the ability to have normal erections is super important. And seeing your doctor can be very helpful. So please don’t delay. If you’re nervous or concerned, this is something we do day in and day out, and we’re happy to help you. So please go see a doctor. If you have erectile DYS, we can help you.
