These include a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled, parallel group study, clinical trial of 109 males. This study shows significant improvements in libido, sexual performance, satisfaction, physical performance, sperm volume and sperm motility. These results show great promise but they need more studies to be able to be more conclusive. Let’s see what future research brings, time will tell.
