What You Should Know
Acaiman is a product from Healthy People. The supplement claims to increase sexual desire in men, thanks to the active ingredient acai. We have never heard of a connection between acai and libido, but it does not surprise us that acai is now related to yet another health benefit with no clinical support. Acai has been touted as the answer for everything from weight loss to high blood pressure to constipation and the list of health benefits just keeps on growing, according to supplement manufacturers.
The product description for Acaiman is one short paragraph on one of the Healthy People websites we chose for this review. Healthy People is an affiliate company, so there are multiple websites out there from different people selling Healthy People supplements.
List of Ingredients
- Pumpkin Seed
- Vitamin C
- Pantothenic Acid
Acai is an antioxidant. It may help fight free radical damage, but it is not going to boost male libido. Acai is not affiliated with Viagra in any way despite the mention of this medication in the product description.
Damiana is another herb that is supposed to boost male libido. This time around there is some clinical support for the claims, but the effect has only been proven in an animal setting on lab rats.
Guarana is a stimulant that is not quite as strong as caffeine, but we have no idea how much guarana is in Acaiman, so dieters should start out taking a small dose and work up to the full dose just to be safe.
Maca is another ingredient that has some clinical support, this time in small human tests. According to one study, men who took maca felt an increase in libido, however another study showed no change in sex hormone levels.
Noni and mangosteen are strong antioxidants commonly added to anti-aging and weight loss supplements. There is not really a connection between these ingredients and weight loss, but the antioxidant effects may help heal the body on a cellular level.
- Some ingredients are associated with increased libido.
- Clinical studies are available on some ingredients.
- May support healthy cells with strong antioxidant effects.
- No clinical studies on Acaiman could be found.
- We have no idea how much of each ingredient is included in the supplement so clinical study results don’t matter.
Acaiman makes some pretty extraordinary claims. According to the product description the supplement may help reduce cholesterol, heal arthritis, increase energy, increase libido and help fight UTIs.
