Vimax Pills Review
- Clinical Studies
- Doctor Recommendations
- User Reviews
- Risk of Side Effects
Very rarely do products get a Poor rating, but this is one of them. Unfortunately, Vimax is one of the sketchier male enhancement pills on the market. The company’s claims don’t match up with the data available. If the product is used by the millions of people it claims, there should be hundreds of reviews and star ratings for everyone to see. The buying experience was definitely subpar, and left us wondering if Vimax pill is a real, legitimate product or not. Also, no one likes feeling deceived, and we’re not sure we believe that the doctor recommending the supplement is legitimate. For that reason and several others, we’re giving Vimax pills a Poor rating and strongly suggest trying before buying.
What is Vimax Pills?
Vimax is a sexual performance enhancement men that is marketed to men with low sex drive, low confidence, small erections, and low endurance. The primary benefits of Vimax and similar supplements is the increased libido that intensifies sex drive, as well as improvement in blood flow and circulation. Together, that leads to a stronger, firmer erection and more passionate, enjoyable sex. Ingredients in Vimax are known and used frequently in sexual performance boosters.
Vimax is sold exclusively online at the company’s website and is manufactured in the US by Vimax Male Enhancement. There are pros and cons to reviewing a product sold in only one place: while the distribution is controlled very well and you can be confident you’re buying a genuine supplement, there is also the lack of unbiased testimonials that you get when a product is sold through a major online retailer like Amazon.
Vimax Benefits and Claims
Male enhancement supplements earn their solid reputation for stronger, firmer erections and sometimes out of control sex drives. The combination of the ingredients in these supplements usually also contributes to increased strength, muscle mass, and general health – especially heart health. These pills often fill the gap. A completely healthy body lacking no deficiencies generally doesn’t need a supplement like this unless the issues are due to age.
From the start, Vimax’s claims are very clear. This pill is designed for men who are struggling with sexual performance due to a number of things, but probably first and foremost, confidence. The makers of Vimax claim that along with other sexual performance improvements, Vimax will help improve self-esteem. It isn’t targeted to any specific age group, though studies have shown that testosterone and libido may go down as men age.
That said, there is a lot of detail (about three-fourths of the content on the website) about penis size on the Vimax website, including research studies, and information about penis size by race. Though no pill can actually increase the size of a non-erect penis, if the pill is effective, it can sufficiently increase blood flow to the point that your erection is indeed larger than it was before. So Vimax also claims a larger erection.
Complete Vimax Pills Review and Evaluation
With so many male enhancement supplements on the market, all with really similar lists of ingredients, it’s hard to choose the best one. This is a complete review of Vimax, not just the ingredients in it, but everything else. That includes the buying process, what people say about it, doctor recommendations, clinical studies, side effects, price, availability, and variety. Often times, it’s a small difference in the way a product is sold, or certain side effects, that can make one product better than another.
What we looked at:
- Clinical studies
- Doctor recommendations
- User reviews
- Risks of side effects
We’ve rated Vimax based on the above criteria, from 0 (Very Poor) to 5 (Excellent).
|Ratings for Vimax|
|2 (Lacking) – Vimax is only available in one place, and they change the products that are available on the site without warning or indication sometimes. We chatted with an agent to find out info about an item that was offered, and the agent said it wasn’t sold anymore, which was interesting to note. We give this a Lacking rating because surprises are never good, and selling products without explaining what they do or what’s in them is also not good.|
|3 (Okay) – One bottle of Vimax, with 30 capsules (30 day supply) is $59.95. That is similar pricing to many other supplements in this category. They do provide discounted pricing if you buy more than one bottle at a time. The more you purchase, the bigger the discounts. We give them an Okay rating for price.|
|N/A – There are no varieties, including larger or smaller bottles. On Vimax’s website there are other products available to buy, but they have no real product descriptions. We had to ask a chat agent for the list of ingredients in one of the additional products they are selling, which felt awkward.|
|3 (Okay) – While there aren’t any actual clinical studies on Vimax, technically, Vimax did publish the results of a 9,000 participant survey (see below in the review for results of that). That’s going beyond what most male enhancement products ever do, so we give it an Okay rating for clinical studies.|
|2 (Lacking) – Another area Vimax is different from most sex drive boosters is that there is a current, real MD recommendation on the website. However, we looked into the supposed physician, and there isn’t any evidence that he does anything beyond Vimax. If he’s a real doctor, but his only gig is Vimax, then his review would not be unbiased. We’re not even sure he’s real. Therefore, we give the supplement a Lacking rating for doctor recommendations.|
|1 (Poor) – There are lots of reviews of Vimax online, but not the kind we hope for, which are things like star ratings on a large online retailer site. Testimonials on Vimax’s site? Not available at this time. According to the site, “We are renewing our customer testimonials with the most recent customer feedback regarding our product.” Not good. Any company that expects customers to buy their product without being able to read real, valid testimonials from customers is delusional.|
|Risk of Side Effects|
|4 (Good) – The ingredients in Vimax may lack effectiveness (we’ll look at ingredients further in this review) but they are also very unlikely to cause side effects. We give the product a Good rating for risk of side effects.|
|1 (Poor) – This is a rare rating, but because of the sketchiness of the buying process, potentially fake doctor recommendation, and zero customer testimonials published by the company, we have to give Vimax a Poor rating and suggest you buy at your own risk.|
Vimax Pills Pros and Cons
Here are our Vimax pros and cons, based on user reviews and manufacturer’s description of the product.
- Average cost/not too expensive
- Low risk of side effects
- Large survey showing positive results
- No published customer testimonials
- Potentially fake doctor recommendation
- Poor buying experience
Does Vimax Pills really work?Results and effects
Vimax conducted their own research study and provided the results on their website. “Results gathered from post purchase surveys between 2004 and 2011 year.” The survey had over 9,000 participants, and from the results of the survey, Vimax was able to create a table with some expected results, based on how long you take it. The results are surprising.
Staged results showing positive results from taking Vimax:
- Week 1-4: “Significant increase in sexual desire and stamina”
- Week 5-8: “Improvement in your performance and satisfaction during sexual intercourse”
- Week 9+: “Reach your full potential” even “your partner should also start to feel more satisfaction”
For the last one, Week 9+, the company doesn’t say exactly how they are coming to that conclusion. They don’t say how many of the 9,000 survey participants experienced those results, so we won’t necessarily consider that evidence. But it’s a strong company claim.
Vimax makes many, difficult to prove claims and remarks. The M.D. named on the website, Dr. Mario Dumitrascu, M.D., is only linked to Vimax. We couldn’t find a LinkedIn profile or any sort of website for this doctor. The only information available for him is related to the product. Take that for what it is worth to you. To us, that means he may not even exist, and if he does, it’s solely to promote Vimax, making him a potentially biased sponsor of the product.
That said, this is what Dr. Dumitrascu has to say: “I would recommend Vimax for every man that wants to improve the virility, increase sexual performance, stamina and sex desire.”
That recommendation lines up with the results experienced in weeks one to four. That means, most likely, those are the targeted results for this product, and what you can really expect. Even though there is plenty on information on the website about penis size, ultimately, this is a libido-enhancing supplement and we don’t find anything to suggest you should expect an increase in penis size or erection.
What makes Vimax work?
Well, that depends on its ingredients and what they are designed to do. The only problem is that we can’t seem to nail down exactly what’s in it. From the packaging to two places on the corporate website, the ingredient lists are all different, for the same product.
On the homepage, the list of vimax pill ingredients are:
- Vitamin E
- Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Powder
- Cayenne Pepper
- Saw Palmetto 45% Fatty Acids
- Oat Straw Extract 10:1 (Avena Sativa)
- Rice Flour
But on the FAQ page, the vimax pill ingredients are listed as:
- Dodder seed (seman Cuscutae)
- Saw Palmetto Powder
- Epimedium Sagittatum 4:1 Ext (bark)
- Gingko Biloba Powder
- Inosine Anhydrous
- Panax Ginseng (root)
- Avena Sativa Ext 10:1 (Oat Straw Extract)
- Cayenne Pepper
On the packaging, the list of vimax pill ingredients is:
- Ginkgo Biloba
- Cayenne Pepper
- Hawthorn Berries Extract
- Saw Palmetto
- Oat Straw Extract
While we understand changing formulas from time to time, there’s so much confusion about exactly what is in the product, and that’s concerning.
If we stick with what’s consistent among all three variations of ingredients, saw palmetto, oat straw, cayenne pepper, ginkgo biloba, and ginseng, we can saw that Vimax works by providing a potent boost of nutrients that increase libido. These ingredients are all known for that. Libido is, essentially, sex drive. Sex drive is in the mind. So these ingredients work on the mind. Ginseng and cayenne pepper may also contribute somewhat to increased blood flow and circulatory system, which would help with getting and keeping a firm erection once you are stimulated.
The inclusion of Inosine Anhydrous in Vimax is surprising and interesting. It is not commonly found in male enhancement supplements. Inosine is a supplement often given to patients with multiple sclerosis, but it’s also used in the bodybuilding community as an energy supplement. This may help men who suffer from low endurance to last longer in bed.
Is Vimax safe to use?
Yes, Vimax is generally safe to use when used as directed. It is advised to take one pill per day, in the morning, on an empty stomach. This is a daily supplement, not a fast-acting sexual performance booster. Taking more than one pill may have some added effect, but it may not be safe, or doubling-up may just be ineffective and therefore a waste of product. It’s best to use as designed.
Vimax Side effects and contraindications
Generally, male enhancement pills are contraindicated in women and males under the age of 18. Also, men who have medical conditions are advised to talk it over with a physician first, as these pills have ingredients that directly affect the cardiovascular system.
Based on the ingredients listed – and even though those lists vary – the ingredients in Vimax generally do not have serious side effects associated with them. With any natural supplement, though, you run the risk of having some allergic reactions, so it’s best to try one or two and see how your body responds.
Where to Buy Vimax
You can only buy Vimax on the manufacturer’s website. It is available for 30 capsules at $59.95, and the company does offer a 60 day money back guarantee.
The customer care department is available 24/7, which makes this one of the easier to reach male enhancement companies out there. We experienced the chat support, which was somewhat lacking. While you will not have to wait for long to reach an agent, the agents don’t appear to know very much about the product and they just paste long descriptions into the chat for you to read on your own.
