In this article, we are taking a quick tour regarding herbal products for penis enlargement.
Without further ado, lets straight away jump into the topic.
Why should you prefer herbal supplement over other choices?
Whether it be penis enlargement, treating impotence, or any other disease, the most common belief is that herbal medicines are the safest choice.
Actually, it is quite true because all herbal medicines are evolved over the years and millions before us might have tried it, and its effects on the human body are well documented.
Due to this reason, most of the herbs used for penis enlargement has been through at least 5 ~ 10 generations before graduating into a medicine.
Traditional knowledge, when linked with today’s scientific and clinical advancements, pave a road for the development of ‘effective herbal supplements.’
It’s a well-known fact that herbal supplements or medicines often don’t pose any or fewer non-lethal side effects.
And this can be one reason why everyone should try herbal supplements for penis enlargement over other choices.
The human body has the natural ability to exploit the herbal ingredients because we are adapted to plants and its extracts for over a hundred thousand years.
Why blood circulation is important for penis enlargement?
Not only for the penis, but blood circulation is very important for each and every organ in our body.
The human penis requires blood for two purposes, one for the normal oxygen & nutrient transport and second for the most critical feature of the penis, ‘erection.’
For penis size enlargement, the tissue requires a lot of nutrients, growth factors, chemical messengers, and other ingredients necessary for cell growth, for which there should be good blood circulation.
The supplement or medicines that you take for penis enlargement would reach the necessary action center on the penis tissue on the right time if you could channel a good blood flow.
There is two sac-like structure inside the penis, and it is the inflation and deflation of these sacs which creates erection and flaccidity.
When the brain signals the penis to erect, a massive blood rush is targeted towards the penis sacs with a closed vein outlet, in order to create an erection.
Blood circulation is crucial for tissue stimulation and repair, which are two critical physical processes in penis enlargement.
Herbs for increasing penis size
There are several plant products available that can aid in the penis enlargement.
Some of the important herbs include:
1. Plants rich in L-arginine
This amino acid is very crucial for regulating the blood circulation into the penis tissue.

Pumpkin seeds, soya beans, peanuts, and spirulina are some of the powerhouses of L-arginine.
2. Ginko Biloba

It is often sold in capsule form and is a significant ingredient in many penis enlargement supplements.
3. Maca root extract

Used for enhancing the sexual drive in both men and women, this plant has excellent testosterone boosting capabilities as well.
Maca root thus helps in t-boosting, which is a very important ingredient in penis size increment.
4. Panax ginseng
Ginseng varieties are very popular in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, and Panax ginseng was observed to improve penis size increment.
There are several studies that point out to the aphrodisiac and libido-boosting capabilities of ginseng as well.
The active ingredient ‘ginsenosides’ was found to be effective in increasing the penis size by helping cytokinesis.
Another amino acid in the list which has vasodilation property, thus increasing the blood vessel size for enhanced blood flow.
L-citrulline boosts the nitric oxide levels in the blood which relaxes the blood vessels and results in widening.
Thus enhanced blood flow will channel more oxygen and nutrients transport which is very important for the tissue re-growth and thereby increasing penis size.
6. Horny goat weed
This is a Chinese herbal ingredient very commonly found in male enhancement products.
The active ingredient ‘icariin’ can boost testosterone production and also improves the blood flow into the penis.

Well, if you compare herbal products with other treatment choices or medicines, the risks involved are negligible.
Some herbal products when used unregulated might create some trouble, but none of them is life-threatening, except anaphylaxis, a rare allergic symptom associated with the use of some herbs.
Other side effects include wheezing, itching, stomach upset, or digestion problems are not very common though.
In the majority of the users, none of the side effects may appear, and if they do, it might be partly be contributed by the individual physiology as well.
In general, herbal products for penis enlargement are safe due to the organic nature of the ingredients.
However, you are always advised to stick with popular branded and prescription herbal supplements to eliminate chances of any adverse effects.
Most of the illegal penis enhancers employ steroids to boost the testosterone, which in fact could indirectly help in boosting metabolism that leads to penis enlargement.
Herbal supplements and products are undoubtedly an excellent choice for people looking for a safer alternative for penis enlargement.
Though the science is yet to bring some clarity on actual modus operandi of penis size increment using herbal mixtures, there are some working products that you can consider like Gink Biloba, L-arginine, Maca products, etc.

Herbal products are a great choice for combinational therapy in which a physical method like penis extender3 can be combined to make the results faster.
Some studies suggest that testosterone boosting herbs can help with enhanced cell division; therefore any herbal mixtures with t-boosting abilities can also be considered for penis enlargement.
