The corona crisis is affecting us all, and each in our own way. The team of MaleExtra, who have specialised in food supplements with positive sexual effects, report that sales on their website have gone through the roof since the lockdown period began. And considering that sexual performance is closely linked to mental health, that is not really surprising. To learn more, EAN asked the food supplement experts of MaleExtra for an interview.
Erectile dysfunction is still largely a taboo subject today, although many men are affected by it. Why is this problem still hushed up?
Team MaleExtra: We think the problem largely stems from the stigma surrounding impotence that has been embedded in people’s minds. In general, men tend to be more closed off to talking about their problems, and when the problem is linked to sexual performance, it is even harder to open up about it.
This tabooing also means that the topic is still surrounded by many myths. Is there a prejudice that you encounter again and again and which you would like to refute?
Team MaleExtra: The biggest myth that comes up the most is that it makes a man less masculine. This is absolutely not the case. Erectile dysfunction can affect any man for any number of reasons. At MaleExtra, we really want people to rethink ED as a common issue that has no reflection on you as a person. If someone had a cold, you wouldn’t think of them as being less manly, so why can’t this be the same? Another myth we regularly encounter is that this is just a problem older men have, which definitely isn’t the case. Nearly 50% of our sales come from 18 to 34-year olds. This problem can affect men of any age, at any time in their life. We are seeing an increase in younger customers, partly because they are more willing to seek a solution, and partly because they are being more affected as mental health issues become more common.
The causes of ED can also be connected to the personal situation of the person concerned. Has the problem been aggravated by the corona lockdown?
Team MaleExtra: We would definitely say it has. We have seen website activity on MaleExtra increase by 400% since lockdown began. Sexual performance is very much linked to mental health, and the pandemic has definitely put a lot of strain on people’s mental wellbeing. We’re just very pleased people are looking to do something about it.
What advice would you give to affected men who are particularly suffering from the current corona situation?
Team MaleExtra: The current situation has been extremely tough for a lot of people, whether they feel trapped inside, isolated, stressed or generally overwhelmed by the situation. I think it’s really important to remember that it’s okay to feel like this; it has hit everyone in different ways. I would encourage people to try and be open about how they are feeling and not to overthink things too much if sexual performance starts to become a problem. Things will get better, and there is always help available when you need it.
Let’s talk a little about Male Extra’s products. What exactly do you offer to your customers?
Team MaleExtra: We offer one of the leading male enhancement supplements on the market. The blend of natural ingredients increases blood flow to the penis to give men a bigger, harder, and longer-lasting erection, as well helping them achieve more intense orgasms.
What makes your products stand out from the competition?
Team MaleExtra: What sets us apart from the typical male enhancement products that people usually think of is that we’re a natural supplement. There is also a ‘special’ ingredient. Pomegranate 70% ellagic is the single most important ingredient contained in MaleExtra. Like Viagra, this natural ingredient can help with blood flow by increasing the size of the blood vessels which helps men achieve longer-lasting and harder erections. Exceeding all rival enhancement products, MaleExtra includes 500 mg of this in a single dose. We have a unique formula that you will not find in any other product, with a powerful blend of natural ingredients that increase blood flow to the penis, giving users bigger, harder, longer-lasting erections and more intense orgasms”.
How would you narrow down the target group of your supplements?
Team MaleExtra: As I mentioned above, many people think that erectile dysfunction is just a problem affecting older men, but it can affect men of all ages. Our main demographic would be men aged from 25 upwards.
Are MaleExtra supplements available everywhere in Europe without restrictions?
Team MaleExtra: Yes, absolutely!
Who can retailers contact if they would like to offer your products?
