The product releases nitric gases when it’s rubbed and is said to work 12 times faster than Viagra as it increases blood flow by widening blood vessels. 44 percent of men that it was tested on reportedly got an erection in five minutes and 70 percent were aroused in 10 minutes with one in four men showing significant improvement.

The gel is advantageous since it’s easy to use and shows results quickly enabling couples to include its use in foreplay. While there were mild side effects, doctors say altering ingredients can lead to better results.
