Viapren is a strip that is placed under the tongue and dissolved. The manufacturers claim that the effects are immediate and “euphoric.” It is also marketed as a product for both men and women.
Viapren strips are designed, according to the website, to aid in the “mechanical (erection) and mental (libido or desire) aspects of sexuality.” The herbal formula is designed to work on the five hormonal systems that affect human sexuality.
Viapren is an all herbal product consisting of Mucuna Pruriens, Catuaba, Epimedium Sagitum Extract, and Schizandra. Epimedium Sagitum Extract is better known as horny goat weed. Horny goat weed has been proven to significantly increase testosterone levels. It is also effective in the treatment of fatigue and for increasing libido. This is an ingredient found in many other male enhancement products. Catuaba is thought to enhance the male sex drive. Mucuna Pruriens is thought to be an aphrodisiac and is used by holistic healers to increase testosterone levels and low sperm counts. Schizandra is thought to increase sperm counts and increase stamina during sex.
One of the biggest benefits seems to be ease of use. Viapren strips are ingested by placing them under the tongue and allowing them to dissolve. Another benefit is the fact that the website gives away an entire package of the product as a sample. Herbs such as epimedium and mucuna pruriens are included which have been proven to increase testosterone, which may aid in enhanced sexual performance. For this reason it may be useful to men who have experienced low testosterone levels due to advanced age or health problems.
The Viapren website states that a rebound erection can be observed several hours later or in the morning and this seems to be a misleading statement as most men experience some form of erection upon waking in the morning. In addition, Viapren is very expensive and does not offer a return policy.
A decrease in erectile dysfunction is Viapren’s claim to fame. However, it does not include the necessary ingredients to improve control over ejaculations, or an increase in the firmness of an erection. While their claims that the product will work fast may be true, there is significant doubt that the effects can be sustained for any length of time. Also, the instructions state that the strips should be ingested just before sexual activities and this leads to the question of whether the ingredients can be sufficiently absorbed in such a short period of time. The website specifically states that the main purpose of Viapren is to enhance pleasure during sexual activity and that they do not claim to cure erectile dysfunction, or impotence. But there are many other male enhancement products that will increase erection for consumers.
