Developed by Dr. Joseph J. Collins, the Female X Booster formula supports many of the physiological mechanisms involved in maintaining female sexual health.
These include the support of general vascular function, healthy stress responses, and overall wellbeing. Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemose) supports physical and sexual drive in post-menopausal women, as indicated by the “sexuality domain” of clinical reporting scales used in studies.
Panax Ginseng may have mild estrogenic effects on reproductive tissues in addition to its ability to moderate the effects of stress on the nervous system, a function that is shared by other adaptogens in this formula, such as Eleutherococcus senticosus (Siberian Ginseng) and Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera).
In traditional medicine, Muira Puama (Ptychopetalum olacoides) is a traditionally used Brazilian adaptogen to support arousal. In a small, randomized trial women presenting with hyposexual desire disorder took 7.5 mg of Tribulus terrestris daily for four weeks along with a placebo group. After four weeks the trial group showed improvements in the Female Sexual Function Index areas of desire, arousal, lubrication, satisfaction and comfort domains.
Supports Hormone Functions
In addition to supporting the female sexual response through other mechanisms, Angelica sinensis, Humulus lupulus, and Cimicifuga racemosa also support estrogen function. Lepidium meyenii, Ptychopetalum olaciodes, Mucuna pruriens, Epimedium brevicornum, Tribulus terrestris, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Panax ginseng and Withania somnifera also support testosterone function. If additional estrogen support is desired, EstroMend™ may also be used. TestoGain™ may be used if additional testosterone support is desired.
