Both VigRX Plus and Vimax are popular ‘male enhancement’ products designed to provide better erections and increase sex drive. There are similarities between the two products but there are differences as well. This is our VigRX Plus vs Vimax comparison.
How Do They work?
Both VigRX Plus and Vimax have specific natural and herbal ingredients that make up their respective ‘formulas.’ Vimax ingredients include Vitamin E, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Powder, Ginseng, Cayenne Pepper, Saw Palmetto 45% Fatty Acids, and Oat Straw Extract 10:1 (Avena Sativa) and Rice Flour. VigRX Plus ingredients include Epimedium Leaf Extract, Damiana, Gingko Leaf, Asian Red Ginseng, Saw Palmetto Berry, Muira Pauma Bark Extract and Catuba Bark Extract .
VigRX Plus works essentially by its ingredients releasing blood flow to the penis. Some of the VigRX Plus ingredients also act as natural aphrodisiacs to increase libido. It is hard to say how Vimax works exactly as their website doesn’t explain this, but we would presume it works in a similar way.
Evidence and results
This is probably the most important thing to consider when comparing these types of products. There are so many products out there in this industry making lots of claims. It is important to really investigate what the evidence is, if there have been robust research studies, and if there are any medical endorsements.
VigRX Plus was tested in 2010 by the research company Vedic Lifesciences. The trial was a triple-blind study which ran for 84 days with 75 test subjects. The results of the study showed a significant improvement in erection quality as well as sex drive. You can read more about the study specifically in our article about VigRX Plus results. VigRX Plus is endorsed by Dr. Steven Lamm MD, who appears in various articles and videos about VigRX Plus.
Vimax doesn’t seem to have conducted any serious studies about the effects of Vimax. In their doctor’s recommendation on their website, he does refer to testing Vimax “with voluntary patients in a clinical trial over an 8 months period.” There is no specific information on the methodology and the specific results of the study. On their website they do refer to having a Health Canada Pharmaceutical Establishment Licence (EL) and following Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). However these are more about manufacturing and quality control standards than the effectiveness of the product. Vimax is endorsed by Dr Mario Dumitrascu MD, who happens to be the Managing Director of the Vimax Group, so we don’t feel that is a credible independent endorsement.
Both products are made of natural ingredients and do not cause any negative side effects.
Price and offer
Both VigRX Plus and Vimax have full money back guarantees up to 60 days approximately.
VigRX Plus vs Vimax – Summary
VigRX Plus seems to be the stronger product, partially because it seems to have a wider variety of ingredients but mainly because it has much more evidence and research to support its claims. For Vimax there is no detail about their ‘8 month trial’ and in any case this was conducted by the MD of the company which would certainly not make it a credible study.
Vimax’s main advantage over VigRX Plus is the price as it is significantly cheaper.
For us, the price is secondary to the safety and effectiveness of the product and for this reason we would recommend VigRX Plus over Vimax.
