VigRX Uses

There are several claimed uses of VigRX, including penis enlargement and the treatment of impotence. Since the supplement is not an FDA-approved product, the manufacturer can only make vague claims about its benefits. No studies have actually been done to see if VigRX really works for "male enhancement."

What Is VigRX Used For?

VigRX™ is a popular herbal supplement claimed to help with "male enhancement." It is not exactly clear what "male enhancement" means. However, advertisements for VigRX seem to imply that the supplement helps with penis enlargement and helps to treat impotence (also know as erectile dysfunction, or ED).
As a dietary supplement, VigRX is not an FDA-approved medication. Therefore, the manufacturer of VigRX can make only vague claims about the uses or benefits of the products. For instance, it cannot claim that VigRX treats impotence, since VigRX has not been clinically studied in humans or approved (or even evaluated) by the FDA. This is why packaging and advertisements for most supplements, including VigRX, must carry a statement that says "These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease."
However, the advertisements and Web site for VigRX clearly imply that the product is intended for impotence treatment and for penis enlargement.

How Does It Work?

No studies have been done to see if VigRX really works. Most of the ingredients in the supplement have little scientific evidence to suggest that they have any effect on sexual function. However, ginseng might help improve erectile dysfunction, although much more research is necessary to confirm this claim (see Does VigRX Work? for more information).
It is not known how ginseng might work for erectile dysfunction. It is not known how (or even if) the other ingredients in VigRX might help with sexual function in men.
