Gwyneth Paltrow launched a sexual health supplement designed to “support women’s sexual desire, arousal and mood”.

Entrepreneur wellness brand Goop recently launched the supplement, which is called DTF – the acronym for the phrase “down to f * ck”.

“It’s not just about sex: it’s about supporting our quest for more pleasure, more often,” the company says of the name of the supplement. “And yes, we chose to call it DTF. It can be a joke we share.

According to the description of the supplements on the website, the company’s science and research team created them as part of its “sexual wellness toolkit” and says they will tackle “some of these common physiological obstacles to desire “.

Regarding the ingredients of the supplement, Libifem® Fenugreek Extract is listed, which the company says “has been clinically proven to support healthy sexual arousal and desire in women.” It also contains shatavari (“a traditional adaptogen for women’s health”, according to Goop) and saffron (which is said to be a “mood support”).

“Clinical studies of the ingredients found in DTF have involved participants who used the ingredients daily for at least eight weeks,” said a statement on Goop’s website. “Individual results will vary – consistency is key. ”

It should be noted, however, that Goop claims that its statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and that the supplement is not “intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.”

The effect of libido supplements has long been disputed in the medical world.

According to Dr Shalini Andrews, consultant and British Association of Sexual Health & HIV (BASHH) Board member, there is “no good scientific evidence that supplements work on improving sexual desire in women.” There are no supplements permitted for use. ‘

As to why people experience low sexual desire, Dr Andrews says biological causes such as menopause, hormonal abnormalities (such as low levels of testosterone, and side effects of drugs used to treat other conditions such as as depression or hypertension) can come into play, such as psychological, social and interpersonal factors.

Accordingly, people with low sexual desire are advised to visit their doctor first to discuss it. “Almost anyone with these symptoms will benefit from seeing a sex therapist in addition to a doctor, although the availability of this service may be limited,” adds Dr Andrews.

As for Goop’s supplements, they cost £ 40 ($ 55.00), are vegan (made without hormones, GMOs, gluten and soy) and are advised to take them twice a day for at least two months.

Paltrow shared the news of the product launch on his Instagram account over the weekend, writing: “Daily stress and anxiety, hormonal changes, exhaustion, age… these can have a impact on our libido and sexual health.

“So yeah, we (along with our science and research team) created a supplement that REALLY helps and, yeah, we called it DTF. Because, you know, we’re @goop. ‘

Several prominent celebrities and some of the actor’s close friends commented on the star’s post.

“Clearly I need this supplement because I really had to think about DTF, [sic]’wrote fitness guru Tracy Anderson, while Paris Hilton commented on the post with fiery emojis.

Goop has become famous over the years for its rather unusual products, including vaginal eggs and a candle named “This Smells Like My Vagina”.
