Thanks to our NEW dual-action SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance formula made with FDA-approved ingredients, such as Finasteride, Tadalafil (the same active ingredient as Cialis®), and Vitamin D3, you can stimulate hair growth without sacrificing your sexual performance by offsetting sexual side effects.
In this blog post, we’ll explore why men sometimes experience sexual side effects when taking hair growth medications, what causes erectile dysfunction (ED), and how combining these three powerful ingredients can help promote hair growth while keeping things exciting in the bedroom. We’ll also answer your questions about who this medication is for, go over any potential side effects or risks, and share some common questions we receive from patients. So, let’s dive right in!
Why Men May Experience Sexual Side Effects With Hair Growth Medications
It’s important to understand why some men may experience sexual side effects with hair growth medications and why you have avoided starting your hair growth journey. Reduced libido is a potential sexual side effect of the ingredient Finasteride and other DHT blockers, which impacts 2.1 – 3.8% of men. (1) While Finasteride is a key medication for promoting hair regrowth, it works to block the main enzymes that convert Testosterone to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
DHT can play a role in sexual health and function, so when Finasteride inhibits its production, some men may experience a decrease in libido or even erectile dysfunction (ED). According to a study, however, DHT may not be a vital hormone for sexual production in adult males. (2) It’s important to note that not every man taking Finasteride will experience these often temporary side effects.
What Causes Erectile Dysfunction (ED)?
Erectile dysfunction, or ED, is a condition that affects many men at some point in their lives. It means that there’s an inability to achieve or maintain an erection for sexual intercourse. ED can have various causes, both physical and psychological. The physical cause of ED is poor blood flow to the penis or genital area. ED can also be due to conditions such as high blood pressure, side effects of medications, diabetes, nerve conditions, or cardiovascular disease. When blood flow is restricted, it becomes difficult for the penis to fill with enough blood to produce an erection.
Psychological factors can also have physical effects on a man’s ability to produce an erection. Stress and anxiety, depression, or relationship issues can all interfere with sexual performance and lead to difficulties in achieving or maintaining an erection. Suffering from hair loss and thinning can impact confidence in and out of the bedroom. So, when hair growth medications cause ED, this only makes the emotional impact twofold. That’s why combining hair growth medications with those that offset sexual side effects can be the answer to your concerns.
The Benefits of Combining Finasteride With Tadalafil & Vitamin D3
Combining Finasteride with medications like those in our SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance, including Tadalafil and Vitamin D3, can help reduce them. While Tadalafil is commonly used to treat ED and can also be used for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), it acts as a vasodilator which may increase blood flow to the scalp and penis—which can have a dual-action benefit of promoting hair growth at the follicles and offsetting any sexual side effects at the same time. (3) A study testing the effects of PDE5 inhibitors on hair growth it showed an increase in “vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), which are responsible for hair growth.” (4)
Tadalafil works by targeting the enzyme and catalyst Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) responsible for smooth muscle movement and the leading cause of erectile dysfunction (ED). (5) Research has suggested that Vitamin D3 deficiency could be linked to hair loss and ED. (6) Combining Vitamin D3 with these ingredients, you can support healthy hair growth and improve your overall sexual response when aroused.
Potential Side Effects of Finasteride & Tadalafil
As with any new medication, you may experience some side effects. If you’re interested in taking Finasteride, the most common adverse reactions associated with the medication in a 4-year study were impotence, decreased libido, decreased ejaculation volume, breast enlargement and tenderness, and rash. (7) For those interested in taking Tadalafil, the most common adverse reactions are dizziness, upset stomach or nausea, dyspepsia, back pain, myalgia, nasal congestion, headaches, muscle aches, pain in limb, and facial flushing.

I’m worried about sexual side effects. Will SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance help?

Are there side effects associated with Tadalafil (Cialis®)?
As with any medication, there is always a chance you may experience mild side effects such as headache, nausea, indigestion, stuffy nose, dizziness, and muscle aches. Should you experience these side effects, we recommend you stop taking the medication immediately and speak with your doctor. However, a study indicates that Tadalafil can be beneficial in “repairing damaged vascular endothelium and promoting long-term improvement of erectile function.”
How long does Tadalafil take to work in combination with hair growth ingredients like those in our SuperCapsule™?
Hair growth results typically show between 3 to 6 months. You can experience a performance boost from the Tadalafil (Cialis®) within 24-36 hours of use. Tadalafil is formulated to improve blood flow to the scalp and genital area to help improve sexual arousal response and hair growth in combination with Finasteride.
I’m already taking Viagra. Can I still take the SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance?
If you’re taking Viagra, we do not recommend you add the SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance because it contains Tadalafil (generic for Cialis®). However, you can take a different SuperCapsule™ formula for hair growth, such as our Finasteride or Dutasteride formulas. We do recommend switching from Viagra to this SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance since it works to improve both hair growth and sexual performance. Tadalafil has shown additional benefits when taken daily, compared to Viagra, which cannot be taken daily.
I sometimes get dizzy. Should I take SuperCapsule™ + ED performance if that’s an issue?
Before you begin taking any new medications, but especially if you have a history of dizziness, low blood pressure, or any heart conditions, we suggest you talk with your doctor.

When is the best time to take SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance? In the morning or evening?
You can take our SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance at any time of the day that’s most convenient for you. However, if you experience dizziness as the product can lower your blood pressure, so we recommend you take it at night.
Should I avoid taking SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance if I’m taking heart medication?

Vitamin D3 supports healthy hair growth and the creation of new hair follicles, along with better skin.
How does SuperCapsule™ + ED Performance offset sexual side effects that come with hair growth medications?
Tadalafil is included in this men’s formula to help offset sexual performance concerns associated with hair growth medicine while also supporting hair growth by increasing blood flow to the scalp.
