What You Should Know
VPX is a supplement company with products for multiple health and life concerns, including fat loss, bodybuilding and libido. VPX Black Pearl combines two supplements together creating an energy pill with libido boosting support. This supplement is for men only. Libido boosting ingredients tend to be popular in alternative medicine, but few have clinical support. VPX Black Pearl uses caffeine to boost energy. Caffeine is proven to increase energy and metabolism. We prefer supplements that list how much caffeine is included in a supplement, but VPX Black Pearl lists caffeine as part of a proprietary blend. Proprietary blends hide the total amounts for all ingredients in the blend. This is like lying to the consumer, which is something we are not thrilled about.
List of Ingredients
Proprietary Blend: Caffeine Anhydrous, AEX (Arginine Ethyl Ester HCL), Vitex Agnus Castus, Cnidium Monnier, dl-Allyaidisulpide, Vitamin C, Icarlin, Cistanches Extract, Eurycoma Longfolia Jack, L-Nor Valine, Zinc Mono Methionine Aspartate and Yohimbine HCL.
The two ingredients used to support energy levels are caffeine and yohimbine HCL. Yohimbine HCL is also commonly used to support sexual health and libido. VPX does not bother to list clinical support for yohimbine.
Caffeine is used in weight loss supplements and energy supplements. As little as 50 to 75 mg is enough to boost heart rate and metabolism. Unfortunately, VPX lists caffeine as part of a proprietary blend. This is not the best choice as consumers should know how much caffeine they are consuming to prevent being over-caffeinated.
In addition to yohimbine, VPX Black Pearl also includes long jack. Long jack is commonly used to boost male libido. There are no clinical trials supporting this ingredient because libido is a mental reaction with no real tangibility. Users can report feeling increased libido, but each person would likely feel differently.
Other ingredients in VPX Black Pearl increase blood flow and support testosterone. These ingredients will no affect weight loss, metabolism or fat burning.

VPX Black Pearl is a libido boosting energy drink. Combining the two supplements is an interesting choice. If the company listed all ingredient amounts, we would likely support using VPX Black Pearl for more than libido, but that is not the case. Caffeine is a stimulant and some users may be sensitive to caffeine so this ingredient needs to be detailed on the label. It is best to start VPX Black Pearl with one-half dose until the user can determine the strength of the formula.
