This series of articles is courtesy of longtime member (nearly 4 years!) and retired moderator, Bnip. Bnip decided to do an experiment, to see what he could do to increase the volume of his ejaculation, using supplements.
His research and findings are very interesting! Thank you, Bnip, for allowing us to post this series!
Supplements and Ejaculation Volume
So I read many threads about which supplements increase ejaculation loads and how much do they help. I decided…let’s do a science experiment!!! Everyone loves data so let’s be as methodical as possible. I am not an expert in this field. I have done research and these are the conclusions I have come up with. Do your own research before trying any new supplements.
First let’s take a look some characteristics of semen.
Characteristics of Semen
Semen is made up of:
- 90% water and
- The remaining 10% is broken down as:
- 65% of the fluid is produced by the seminal vesicles,
- 30% from the prostate, and
- 5% testicles and epididymis.
The average male ejaculates between 2-5ml of semen on each ejaculation. The average ejaculation distance is 7-10 inches. Thick or lumpy semen is due to dehydration or in extreme cases low testerone levels. Foul smelling semen is usually a sign of infection and can often be green and brown in color.
Porn and Ejaculate Volume
We often see in porn videos, the guys shooting large loads and in some cases extremely large loads. You can often tell which ones are fake and which ones are really fake!! We have this notion that we need to blow like a porn star. If you do research on porn stars you soon realize the tricks used to make you think all males shoot like this.
I wanted to do my own research and see how much I ejaculate and why the amounts change. Is it due to time between ejaculations, sleep, hydration, diet…So over the last two months I have compiled my baseline data and sacrificed a lot to get this non bias information to everyone.
I have a stack that I will start to take and see if this makes a difference as some have claimed. I have already individually tried these supplements and already have some notes on what to make on each. But my experiment is more along the lines of whether supplements really do aid to ejaculation volume.
Supplements to Test
The male semen contains a considerable amount of lecithin. If you supplement your diet with lecithin you may be able to increase the amount, as well as the volume of prostate secretions. This means that the volume of semen when you ejaculate will be increased.
Raises testosterone levels which boosts libido and improves EQ (Helps with ED), enhances sexual function. Tribulus terrestris has been used in traditional medicine to treat sexual dysfunctions, such as impotence and low libido. It also improves sperm motility. Sperm motility and the ability of a sperm to penetrate the female egg, as well as the volume and concentration of the sperm, play significant roles in fertilizing the female egg.
Pygeum is used for treating symptoms of enlarged prostate and prostate cancer. Pygeum contains chemicals that help shrink the prostate to relieve urinary problems such as poor urine flow and nighttime urination in men with enlarged prostates. This is why men report their pre-cum “leaking like a faucet.”
In the body, the amino acid arginine changes into nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is a powerful neurotransmitter that helps blood vessels relax and also improves circulation. Since arginine may help arteries relax and improve blood flow, it may also help with ED.
On a personal note…I am ADHD and I take Adderall. Adderall basically causes my penis to become turtled as long as the medicine is active in my system. L-Arginine has significantly helped keep that from being so severe as it improves blood flow.
Another side note…HAHA don’t take L-Arginine when you get your wisdom teeth out…they don’t stop bleeding and led me to dry sockets!!!
Celery seed (removed from the experiment)
Celery seed has diuretic properties, and people who take celery seed might experience a higher urine output. Celery seed can help increase urine flow, which may be useful in treating water retention and other urinary problems. It also has anti-inflammatory and pain relief properties. Celery seed has long been used to treat arthritis and gout and is thought to be an effective pain reliever and muscle relaxer.
Horny goat weed
Horny goat weed may increase libido in men, improve erectile function in men, restore sexual vitality, stimulate and tone the muscles of the pelvic floor, increase sperm production, stimulate sensory nerves in the sexual organs, stimulate hormone secretions, and increase sperm count & density.
