How Pheromone colognes work to get you noticed

All the old jokes about being able to "bottle" sex appeal turn out to have a basis in reality. Recently scientists discovered how to isolate and concentrate the chemical-hormonal substances -- called pheromones -- that create sexual attraction in humans. It's now possible to wear pheromones and put out their invisible sexy signals at will.

The effect of pheromones has been very well studied. They cause an instinctual, almost automatic sexual response, which scientists call a "releaser" effect. Each person has a unique "odor print" that's just as individual as fingerprints, created by compounds released from the sebaceous glands, sweat glands and other glands. Among the chemicals and compounds released are pheromones, which drift into our companion's nasal passage and stimulate specialized receptors. Scientists are still studying the receptors to determine whether the "vomeronasal organ" is devoted to exclusively to sensing pheromones, or whether pheromone receptors are part of a more complex system along with olfactory receptors in the nasal passage.

The two compounds that are most widely recognized as pheromones are androstadienone (AND) and estratetraenol (EST). AND is a derivative of testosterone and EST is a relative of estrogen. Scientists have shown that the chemicals change brain patterns as detected by EEGs, functional MRIs, and PET scans, and induce mood changes. That evidence is consistent with what pheromones would do.

Synthesized versions of these compounds can be even more potent and effective than one's natural "odor print" mainly because Americans do so much to obliterate any trace of natural odor and sweat. In today's society, our showering, deodorizing, cologne-applying and almost sterile approach to cleanliness keep our natural pheromones from doing their job.

That's why the idea of concentrated pheromones makes so much sense. The trick is finding a good source of genuine pheromones, not just diluted or even fake preparations making claims. There are a few good products out there that actually are what they say and have an excellent reputation for creating more arousal, more interest, more attraction and more willingness in the opposite sex. One we recommend is Nexus Pheromones™, made from 100% genuine human pheromone. If you're shopping around, insist on a money-back guarantee and note whether the product is pure concentrate vs. a cologne or alcohol preparation that simply contains some tiny proportion of hormone.

Then take your newly anointed self on a test drive and notice what reactions you get and how you feel. Remember, the greatest aphrodisiac on earth is confidence -- so using a little pheromone to boost it is an excellent way to go.

VigRX™ solves erectile problems without side effects!

Since its introduction in 1999, Viagra has made a powerful name for itself in the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). It was so successful that competition has now moved in, in the form of two new drugs named Cialis and Levitra. More and more men are moving towards addressing and treating a problem that has plagued them for many centuries – soft and short-lived erections.

But although Viagra and its cousins have proven effective for millions of men, some find the side effects a hassle to deal with. Side effects often include headaches, flushing (of the face), and indigestion. Even more srious, if Viagra is taken with drugs like nitroglycerine it may cause sudden and potentially deadly drops in blood pressure!

Drugs are not for everyone,

side-effects are a very real possibility.

Many men find the side effects enough of a deterrent that they go in search of another solution. That’s why so many men are turning to natural supplements like VigRX™, which is possibly the most popular. Many men find it gives them similar results, minus the high price tag and nasty side effects!

VigRX™ can solve ED,

and has no negative side effects!

Medical proof – herbs actually work!

Many pharmaceuticals were developed using traditional herbal medicines as a starting point. Modern drug research has often started with ancient lore about a given plant or extract, known to native peoples for having a given medical effect. They isolate a basic compound or active ingredient, and then prepare it for sale on the market.

Most native cultures have botanical cures for sexual improvement and erection issues. While some were simply placebos that gave imaginary results, many others were physiologically valid, and later became medically proven to have positive effects on the penis tissues. Medical proof continues to be added to the list every day.

The power of herbal supplements

Many of the herbs contained in VigRX™ directly affect the corpus cavernosa, otherwise known as the erectile bodies within the penis. Many of the ingredients in VigRX™ have undergone extensive clinical research that proves they can be effective for increasing penis performance, erection size, and in treating erectile problems.

For example:

While the exact actions of Muira Puama are not yet fully understood by science, its effectiveness as a solution to impotence has been clinically proven. A study conducted at the Institute of Sexology in Paris (supervised by Dr. Jaques Waynberg) showed that out of 262 men, over 50% reported significant improvement after using Muria Puama daily for two weeks. 62% of men who were suffering from lost libido had ‘a dramatic effect’.

A second study showed even stronger results! In a group of 100 men who complained of low libido, weak erections, or other sexual issues, between 55% and 70% of men who used Muira Puama reported significant increases in sexual performance and desire.

In the same study, a group of 26 men diagnosed with common sexual asthenia (sexual weakness), and the inability to produce an erection suitable to have sex, 90% of cases found treatment with Muira Puama to have a beneficial effect!

Other studies show that the herb Epimedium (commonly called ‘Horny Goat Weed’) helps sexual performance in several ways.

It functions as an adaptogen, increasing the level of various hormones including serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine when they fall below certain levels. This promotes higher energy levels and reduces the ‘stress hormones’ (cortisol) that depress sex drive and causing fatigue.

Epimedium also contains a number of flavonoids (plant compounds found in many green plants), one of which is known as icariin. Icariin can have a direct effect on erections. In medical terms, it is known as “a cGMP-specific PDE5 inhibitor”, which are main ingredients contained in prescription drugs like Viagra, Cialis and Levitra.

Other ingredients in VigRX™ include both Ginseng and Ginko, both of which have hundreds of clinical studies (many institutions in many various different countries) that show their effects on the human body, not the least of which are improved circulation to peripheral circulation (body extremities), and increased libido and sexual function.

With drugs like Viagra, the pharmaceutical companies must provide clinical proof that their products are safe, and therefore spend little or no attention on the natural alternatives. There is, however, a growing body of knowledge that proves that the natural alternatives are effective!

VigRX™ ingredients have sufficient medical backing (as well as centuries of historical proof) to qualify VigRX™ as a totally viable and effective natural alternative, especially if you desire to spend less and/or avoid the potential side effects of Viagra.

VigRX™ ingredients are PROVEN to help

increase libido and banish erection problems!

Don’t waste time waiting for the problem to get worse. VigRX™ is YOUR solution, so order today.

5 Foods to Spice up Your Love Life - By Meri Raffetto

Aphrodisiacs have been used throughout many cultures for centuries. From oysters to chocolate, most cultures have their favorite picks. Certain foods have been known to be powerful aphrodisiacs although no scientific data can back up the claims. Foods are purported to work by lowering inhibitions, stimulating blood flow, and releasing happy hormones. It is important to note that aphrodisiacs are not meant to cure any sexual dysfunctions; they are just supposed to help you to get in the mood. Here are 6 foods to spice up your love life or at least try and see if it works for you!

1. Bananas?

Yes- you read right. Bananas have a reputation for enhancing your mood and creating more confidence. So if you are going out on the town and want to deliver a confident and seductive come hither look then snack on a banana before you go. It might help improve your flirting abilities.

2. Ginger the spice of love.

Are you past the flirting stage? Then move onto the seducing stage with some ginger by your side. Ginger has been reported to increase blood flow to all the right areas helping you to feel in the mood.

3. Green olives.

Surprised? Green olives are believed to make men more virile. I guess that means us women will find them more manly. There is something about a man with a martini- James Bond has it all figured out.

4. Black olives.

I guess since green olives work for men then black olives work for women. Black olives are reported to increase a woman’s sex drive. Again, science doesn’t support the claim but black olives are good for us anyway. It doesn’t hurt to try.

5. Tomatoes.

That little Italian fruit is known as a sexual stimulant for both men and women. All those times we ate spaghetti…who knew? Round off your meal with some tomatoes and its all amore.

Ok. Want to know what the biggest aphrodisiac is? The human brain- and this one is backed by science. You can still have some fun creating a romantic meal or have just the right appetizer when out with that special someone. All the foods above are very healthy and if they don’t work as an aphrodisiac they will at least promote good health.

Recipe for Love:

Start off with martinis with green olives. Add some tapenade spread on bruschetta for an appetizer. Move onto a tossed green salad with plenty of tomatoes. For the main course serve Ginger Chicken and top it off with banana’s foster for dessert. I wonder if there is such a thing as too many aphrodisiacs in one meal?
