Pycnogenol + L-Arginine ( Prelox )

I posted briefly some time ago about how Pycnogenol and L-Arginine in combination has been demonstrated to be useful in the treatment of moderate erectile dysfunction. A new UK study came out recently which supports this view. (Other Prelox studies [1] [2]).

Men with peyronie's disease often suffer from varying degrees of ED and as such for those with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction, this could be an over the counter option that they wish to explore instead of prescription route of Viagra, Cialis and Levitra. The study shows an increase in erection strength and plasma testosterone levels. The prelox treatment appears to be as effective (if not more so) the longer the therapy is used.

Patients of Dr Levine is the US have been known to take the PAV cocktail or a variation of it for a period of months (Pentoxifylline, L-Arginine and Viagra). Since L-arginine is already being taken, I wonder what impact adding Pycnogenol to the mix would be, if anything? There certainly appears to be a level of synergy between Pycnogenol and L-Arginine.
