Enzyte

Active Ingredients in Enzyte

Enzyte tablets supposedly contain the following active ingredients:
 
  • Niacin (30 mg)
  • Zinc (30 mg)
  • Copper (4 mg)
  • A "proprietary blend" of the following ingredients:

 

 

The exact strengths of the individual ingredients of the proprietary blend have not been published.
 

Is Enzyte Effective?

No studies have been done to see if the supplement really works. Most of the ingredients in Enzyte have little scientific evidence to suggest that they have any effect on sexual function. However, ginseng and L-arginine might help improve erectile dysfunction, and maca might help stimulate sexual desire, although much more research is necessary to confirm these claims (see Does Enzyte Work? for more information).
 

How Does It Work?

It is not known how ginseng might work for erectile dysfunction. It is thought that L-arginine may help improve blood flow to the penis, since it is used in the body to make nitric oxide, an important substance that causes blood vessels to relax. It is not clear how maca might work to stimulate sexual desire in men. It has been shown that maca does not seem to affect testosterone, estrogen, or other similar hormones, at least in healthy men.
 
It is not known how (or even if) the other ingredients in Enzyte might help with sexual function in men.
