Plant-Derived Supplements for Sexual Health and Problems: Part 1—Trends over the Past Decade
Current Sexual Health Reports
Purpose of Review
In this update on plant-derived supplements, we provide a general introduction regarding the status and interest in phytochemicals for sexual health, indicating both progress and problems with past and current research.
We summarize the development and current status of two well-known plant-derived supplements, using them as case studies for understanding some of the problems associated with the study of such supplements on sexual health.
We interpret the current situation regarding plant-derived supplements, identify common sources/journals for information about medicinal herbs for sexual health, identify supplements that are garnering increasing attention within the research community, and discuss the larger potential and pitfalls associated with this domain of research.
