Female X Booster
Female X Booster by Douglas Laboratories is a proprietary blend of herbal plant adaptogens plus the amino acids L-arginine and L-citrulline to help boost the female’s sexual response by working through various physiological mechanisms in the body.
- Female X Booster may be used as a dietary supplement to support the psychological and physiological factors that may affect female libido.
Functions and Mechanism of Action
In the central nervous system, dopaminergic and serotonergic systems appear to play a significant role in various components of sexual response. Supporting endocrine, neural and vascular function, as well as mood, has the potential to promote sexual health.
The Female X Booster formula supports many of the physiological mechanisms involved in maintaining female sexual health. These include the support of general vascular function, healthy stress responses, and overall well-being.
Panax Ginseng supports estrogen function in addition to its ability to moderate the effects of stress on the nervous system, a function that is shared by other adaptogens in this formula, such as Eleutherococcus senticosus and Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera).
In traditional medicine, Muira Puama (Ptychopetalum olacoides) is a traditionally used Brazilian adaptogen to support arousal. In a small, randomized trial, women presenting with hyposexual desire disorder took 7.5 mg of Tribulus terrestris daily for four weeks along with a placebo group.
After four weeks, the trial group showed improvements in the Female Sexual Function Index areas of desire, arousal, lubrication, satisfaction and comfort domains.
Black cohosh (Cimicifuga racemose)supports physical and sexual drive in postmenopausal women, as indicated by the “sexuality domain” of clinical reporting scales used in studies. ‡ Dopamine and norepinephrine are partially responsible for sexual excitement.
Velvet bean (Mucuna pruriens) seeds are the best-known, naturally occurring source of L-dopa, and have been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine to support healthy sexual function.
Preliminary findings show that Maca root (Lepidium meyenii) consumption daily may support mood and sexual function in postmenopausal women independent of estrogenic and androgenic activity. Ptychopetalum olacoides support the function of dopamine D(1) receptors in the hypothalamus.
Supports Hormone Functions
In addition to supporting the female sexual response through other mechanisms, Angelica sinensis, Humulus lupulus, and Cimicifuga racemosa also support estrogen function.
Lepidium meyenii, Ptychopetalum olaciodes, Mucuna pruriens, Epimedium brevicornum, Tribulus terrestris, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Panax ginseng and Withania somnifera also support testosterone function.
