“The manufacturer of ArginMax, Daily Wellness Company, promises their customers ‘great sex’ and a general support in vitality, energy and stamina”
Men are not the only ones who can benefit from improvements in their sex lives. For women, stress, menopause and other issues can make it hard to experience arousal or any pleasure during intimate moments. Women may also have trouble achieving orgasms. Although most herbal and prescription meds focus on treating erectile dysfunction and lack of penis size in men, ArginMax, a product sold by the Daily Wellness company, works to improve the sexual performance of both of men and women.
ArginMax features two slightly different formulas, one for women and one for men. Both formulas contain the amino acid L-Arginine, ginseng, a mild stimulant, ginkgo and various vitamin and minerals. Supposedly, the formula boosts the production of nitric oxide in the body, leading to increased circulation and allowing greater engorgement and arousal in the sexual organs. The formula for women includes calcium and iron to promote general health and damiana an herb reportedly capable of calming anxiety.
Several scientifically accepted studies have been done on ArginMax. A study in 1998, published in the Hawaii Medical Journal, found that the supplement may be able to help men dealing with sexual dysfunction. Of the 21 men in the study, 19 reported some improvements in erections and sexual satisfaction. A 2008 study in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy tracked 108 women for one-month and followed their progress as they took ArginMax or a placebo. Over two-thirds of the women taking ArginMax reported improvements in sexual satisfaction and desire.
Facial flushing has reportedly occurred after taking ArginMax. Ginseng has also been known to cause irritability, nervousness and sleeplessness while ginkgo can cause stomach upsets, diarrhea and headaches.

Don’t Buy It
ArginMax can usually be purchased for $20 to $30 for a one month supply. The price is reasonable and the use of legitimate scientific studies and mention by a number of media outlets is reassuring. Some medical experts, however, doubt the potency of the ingredients and believe that any benefits achieved from taking the product may be a result of a general improvement in feeling healthy from the vitamins, minerals and herbs included in the formula. They also point out that the studies done were small, non-clinical, and relied on patient reports not laboratory measurements to determine if improvements were made.
Men and women who do decide to purchase ArginMax may experience some improvements but this formula is far from being a miracle drug. The use of more balanced formulas with more higher grade ingredients would be a better choice.
