Cuscata is a parasitic plant that is sometimes used in male enhancement products. It is not a popular or frequently used as some other sexual performance ingredients such as Epimedium, L-Arginine and Tribulus and Cuscuta is often used in conjunction with these substances.
As well as helping treat mild cases of impotence, Cuscuta is more often used as an alternative treatment for Premature Ejaculation. Sometimes known as Semen Cuscuta e it is also helpful in supporting sperm volume and helping to prevent sperm leakage. As part of a formula, it has a positive overall effect on men’s reproductive health while also reversing signs of sexual weakness.
There is only a limited amount of information regarding Cuscuta available on the internet and it has not been as widely tested as many other enhancement ingredients. It is not known to have any major adverse side effects if taken at the recommended dose of 9-15 grams, but at high levels it can be quite toxic. How the ingredient works is also not too well researched, but it is known that the plant extract contains flavonoids and antioxidants. These latter substances are particularly important in slowing the aging process as they fight free radicals that destroy cells in the body. Although this does not have a direct impact on improving sexual function it can help in male virility and energy.
For any consumer looking to use Cuscuta as part of a male enhancement supplement, they need to ensure that it is used in the optimal amount and that it is manufactured by an established and reputable company. There are many brands of enhancers that make exaggerated claims without being able to back them up with substantial proof, so it is best to opt for one that has had some form of clinical testing. However, because Cuscuta is not one of the most important ingredients in sexual function, it would not be considered a vital part if any alternative treatment.
