Overview of Avlimil as a Libido Enhancer Used by Women
Avlimil has an interesting history. Originally sold as a female sexual enhancement supplement it has now gone through a rebranding and change in it’s claims, advertising, and promises. Other than that not much else has changed. So the question to ask is what happened?
This isn’t something that is unheard of. Manufacturer makes product and then learns that it does something else better than what it was developed for. In fact, even in this industry that is something we notice quite often. Flibanserin was originally developed as an anti-depressant. When clinical studies noticed improved sexual activity in women using it they refocused their clinical trials. They did not get an NDA from the FDA however. Lyriana started as a cream or gel to be applied topically but during their research they discovered some ingredients were more effective when ingested. They now market a tablet. Let’s dig a little deeper into Avlimil and see what the story is really about and more importanlty to you our readers is it worth trying or buying? Does it work or is it a waste of money? This wouldn't be the first time we've pulled the curtains off of marketing schemes and redirections.
Active Ingredients Used in Avlimil
The capsules sold by Avlimil are all natural and mainly comprised of filler and extracts or blends of herbs, plants, roots, and tree material. The list of included plants is an interesting one as it differs from the normal suspects. The active ingredients included in Avlimil are:
- Sage, Damiana, and Raspberry Leaf Extracts or Matter
- Bayberry, Valerian, Ginger, Black Cohosh, and Licorice Root Matter
- Cayenne Pepper
- 125mg of Soy Isoflavones
Again, the ingredients are all natural. The goal of this recipe has changed at least in Avlimil’s marketing message but from what we can see from researching the products is that they are targeted at increased energy and improving overall blood flow throughout the body. The only thing we can trace back to post menopause relief is the soy isoflavones which have been shown to help with symptoms women endure during that period of their life.
Does Avlimil Do What it Advertises?
Well it depends which advertising campaign you are referring to. Originally Avlimil marketed it’s tablets to women purely as a female sexual enhancer. At that time it was packaged very similarly to birth control tablets in a blister pack promoting once a day use. Now Avlimil appears to be targeting it’s recipe towards comforting women suffering from post-menopausal symptoms such as:.
- Irritability caused from menopause
- Night sweats
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
Avlimil claims that most women notice beneficial results in less than 2 weeks if using it’s product daily. Unfortunately, our reviewers did not notice anything at all. We’d have to give that a zero in terms of performing as advertised.
User Review of Avlimil
Dealing with menopause is no joke. While definitely not the end of the world it’s not a pleasant period to go through. Changes in the body causing irritability, mood swings, hot flashes, and lack of sexual desire are not a women’s idea of a good time. Our reviewers were very hopeful that they’d see some relief or benefit from use of Avlimil but nothing was reported. While they did say they’d continue to use the product it was thought of as a vitamin that may or may not do anything positive in regards to their menopause symptoms.
Should You Buy Avlimil?
We’d vote no on that but since they do have a return policy it isn’t a large risk to try if you don’t mind dealing with the terms of return policies. Exercise, emotional and physical seems to be the best therapy so far outside of hormonal replacement therapies to alleviate the symptoms brought on by menopause.
