Can Prelox improve sexual function for women?
Some studies have shown positive results – there have been some scientific studies conducted to establish whether Prelox is effective at improving female sexual dysfunction. One study showed that healthy women of late reproductive age, who were supplemented for 8 weeks with Prelox saw their sexual function improve significantly. The herbal supplement was also well tolerated and no one needed to stop the trial due to adverse effects. However this study was very small and therefore further studies are needed to confirm if Prelox is effective and safe.
It could work well in post-menopausal women – an earlier study carried out in 2012, found that post-menopausal women may benefit from taking Prelox. In fact, the study found that Prelox was significantly more effective than a placebo and that the results were significant after just four weeks. This study also reported no adverse effects and that Prelox was well-tolerated by the participants. Once again this study was of very small numbers of women and further studies are needed.
Prelox contains ingredients that are related to sexual function in women – nitric oxide (NO) is known to be a key media for sexual function. One of the ingredients of Prelox, L-arginine, is a precursor of NO. Therefore, an increase in L-arginine could increase NO which in turn could help improve sexual function. However further study of this theory is needed to confirm whether this is the case.
A doctor won't recommend Prelox – your doctor will not prescribe you Prelox as it is a herbal supplement which is not licensed and is not available on prescription. However, there may be alternative medications or treatments available from your doctor depending on the cause of your sexual problems.
