The Solutions - And The Facts Behind Them
Search for penis enlargement on the internet today and you'll be bombarded with companies telling you their "miracle product" can fix your problem instantly. Pills, devices, male enhancement supplements and exercises — everything you can think of, someone, somewhere, sells it. Some of these must work, right? Unfortunately, the vast majority of these solutions are totally ineffective. Worse, some can actually cause irreversible damage to your health.
You might recall commercials with "Smilin' Bob," the man who was always smiling presumably because of his enormous penis. The CEO of that company is currently serving a 112-count criminal sentence for a reason. You do not want to mess around with solutions that you don't fully understand.
This is why I've compiled a few of the most popular methods right here for you.
What they are. The research behind them. And what you should be looking out for.
The first thing you need to know about herbal supplements is that you could grab some grass off your lawn, grind it up, and sell it as a male enhancement supplement or enlargement pill tomorrow. The difference lies in the "natural" label slapped onto so many of these solutions. Pills with this label simply aren't subject to the same rigorous tests that standard medications go through. Be wary of any herbal supplement claiming to be FDA-certified.
It's also important to note that no herbal supplement has shown scientific evidence of being able to able to straight-up increase your penis size alone.
But research has shown significant results with other types of extension methods. Rather than propose that a male enhancement pill alone will create growth, Largagenix is designed to supply nutrients that are proteinogenic (promote the production of protein), support the blood vessel system, boost desire, and improve cellular health.
In addition, the penis is a combination of skin, blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue...collagen is a key component of every one of those structures. Largagenix contains a key component that promotes the biosynthesis of collagen.
The bottom line on herbal supplements is that their effectiveness depends entirely on what's actually in the supplements and how it supports your own body.
The penis is not a muscle, but is actually made up mostly of epidermis, or skin cells. So while traditional male enhancement exercises wouldn't do anything for your size, there's a growing body of evidence that penis "stretching" exercises (also known as Penile Traction Therapy) can aid in lengthening or widening the penis.
A study published in Therapeutic Advance in Urology notes that select individuals "may benefit from a conservative approach with PTT, resulting in increased penile length."2
Taken to extremes however, some exercises, especially ones involving weights, can result in tremendous and permanent damage to vital structures of the penis, such as the nerves and blood vessels. Be enormously careful before you embark on any traction therapy regime.
No single device today on the market has been approved by the FDA for penile enlargement on its own.
Unlike herbal supplements, every medical device undergoes intensive and exhaustive testing by the FDA. You'll find many such devices, such as vacuum pumps, construction rings, and penile splints, marketed on the internet as enlargement devices.
How effective are these devices? It's hard to say, as there is tons of contradicting research on whether or not these contraptions actually produce any results at all. But it should be noted that not all devices are created equal. Some devices are considered completely ineffective by the medical community. Others are more controversial.
A study published in BJU International found that "penile extenders appear to be an effective treatment for patients who complain of ‘short penis’. The application of such devices can be recommended in all patients regardless of the penile length, because of the low risk of complications."3
Surgery is the most drastic option, and the unfortunate truth is that men who undergo penile enlargement surgery rarely get the results they want.
After going through an invasive, painful, and humiliating procedure, only 35% of men reported being satisfied with how their penises turned out after. Some end up with their genitals permanently deformed, and American Urologic Association states that these procedures have not been shown to be safe or effective for increasing the thickness or length of the penis in an adult.4
Short answer: this is something you should consider only after every other option has been exhausted. And then, only with great thought.
You might have noticed I didn't go into too much detail about the specific solutions in each category. That's because if I had to write about every feasible solution out there and how effective it is, it'd fill up a whole book.
The short answer is that it's unlikely any single solution will increase the size of your penis significantly. There is no "magic pill" that will make you grow a few inches overnight.
Does that mean that nothing works?
No. There is evidence to suggest that certain male enlargement products and methods do show results. But these results can vary wildly, and most of these approaches require time and effort. What are they?
