Is Male Enhancement Safe?
The world of male enhancement products and concepts can be a tricky one to maneuver because often these product’s “side effects” are really the results you want.
In order to produce these desired effects” product blends have to contain powerful and potent ingredients that will alter the natural composition and function of your body.
So with the line blurred between side effects and desired effects, is male enhancement (natural or not) actually safe?
The Best Sources for Male Enhancement
If done correctly, male enhancement can be a safe and effective process that won’t be detrimental to the body or its functions. Male enhancement is looked into by a large percentage of the male population due to issues with impotency, erectile dysfunction, or simply because they’d like to improve their sexual appeal and performance in the bedroom. The following are a list of safe methods for male enhancement that have proven to work:
The most natural and therefore most safe method of male enhancement is a series of exercises that take at least 30 minutes a day to display results. Although cheap, these exercises do take time and unless you’re a dedicated practitioner, you won’t see results with this method.
Effective male enhancement exercises include: weight training, pumping, jelqing, ballooning, or stretching.
However, if performed incorrectly or excessively, these exercises can cause permanent damage to the blood vessels in the penis. According to Dr. Levine, he has seen “patients who have developed Peyronie’s disease due to violent stretching of the penis through jelquing.”
Male Enhancement Pills
The majority of these pills promote arterial blood flow which in turn improves your ability to get and maintain an erection. If taken regularly, these pills will permanently increase penis size in order to accommodate the excess blood flow.
Be careful though–this method can put the body under stress because it causes your body to go through a psychological change. Always make sure to follow the exact directions that accompany a male enhancement pill.
Keep in mind that male enhancement pills fall under the “dietary supplement” category and therefore do not need to be approved by the FDA. Because of this, make sure you research a pill’s ingredient list and watch out for any ingredients that can cause harmful side effects before purchasing a male enhancement pill.
Male Enhancement Patches
The advantage to using patches instead of pills is that patches are time-released and therefore release nutrients and sexual enhancement ingredients throughout the day instead of in one concentrated dose. The patch is an often-turned-to tool because it doesn’t take prep and you can be ready for a romp in the bedroom any time of day and any spur of the moment.
Patches are convenient and don’t involve messy creams or pills that can cause side effects like nausea, restlessness, and increased heart rate – though they can cause skin irritation. The same patch can be worn all day as your body absorbs the formula constantly.
Male Enhancement Devices
If you’re skeptical about this phrase, you should be. Male enhancement devices are creating quite a public stir these days as technology advances and male impotence and sexual vanity advances as well. There are devices that stretch the penis mechanically, making room for greater blood flow, there are devices that need to be worn constantly, some that are worn at night, and all are uncomfortable and expensive.
FastSize Extender for example, is a device that needs to be warn almost eight hours a day, every day, and it can take months of consistent use before seeing results. It costs close to $300, but to some individuals “it made a world of difference.” One user reported that he gained over 2 inches of erect length – but it took 25 months and 2,600 hours of use in order to achieve that result.
So if you still feel that a male enhancement device is the best option for you, make sure you do your homework and understand the discomfort and irritation that can come from using such a method.
*Also, keep in mind that most results achieved from using a male enhancement device can be achieved through natural methods as well.
The most important thing to remember when deciding on the best male enhancement method is that education is essential. Do not buy a product because of a fancy label or a celebrity endorsed infomercial.
The best way to research a product or device is to read customer reviews from an online source you trust and to research individual ingredients within a product’s blend. Even if you’re taking one ingredient as a supplement on its own, it is vital that you understand the side effects that may be associated with it.
Male genetalia are responsible for all urinary and sexual activity, and altering your anatomy and the natural functions of your body are not things you want to do haphazardly.
Yes, safe male enhancement is attainable but please take the time to research your supplements.
