Erectile Function Vs Erectile Dysfunction: How MangoRx’s (NASDAQ: MGRX) Product Sets Itself Apart and Caters to a Large Market (Pun Intended)

Benzinga

By Meg Flippin, Benzinga Ever since the pandemic, telemedicine has been taking off, and for good reason. It's easy, convenient and increases access for people around the globe. It can also be game-changing for men dealing with what they may consider embarrassing medical conditions like erectile dysfunction. After all, being seen online by a physician enables them to avoid any in-person awkward conversations. Not to mention it can be a lot cheaper and more accessible. And let's not forget the countless men who may not have a problem getting an erection but who want to enhance their performance and enjoy a prolonged and enhanced experience with their partner. They, too, can benefit from such products but often don’t obtain a prescription because they are embarrassed – such products are no longer only for erectile dysfunction but also for improved erectile function. Despite the benefits, it's only recently that men-focused healthcare companies have begun popping up online. They are changing the landscape, making it easy for men to seek help for conditions that aren’t life-threatening but can be life-altering, like ED or to simply keep it up for longer. Mangoceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGRX), which goes by MangoRx, is among them. It is taking the shame out of getting help and getting hard with its telemedicine platform and ED drugs, and is committed to a more accepting and educational approach to men’s health. Patients don’t have to come into an office to get a prescription. Everything is done online and in minutes. Fast delivery means customers are up and performing in no time. No Shame With MangoRx MangoRx is changing the narrative on ED with its fun and humorous brand voice meant to encourage and empower men to get the help they need. MangoRx uses cheeky humor and quite frankly straightforward language to market towards millions of men to, as they put it, simply have better sex. Taking the shame and awkwardness about common problem, the company is focused on developing, marketing and selling a variety of men’s health and wellness products in the area of ED, hair growth, weight loss and hormone replacement therapies. It leverages a telemedicine platform to discreetly treat its growing base of patients–it's a big market opportunity for MangoRx, especially for the treatment of ED. ED is a widespread and global problem that is rapidly growing, even among young adults. By the end of 2025 there are forecast to be about 322 million cases of ED. As a result, the market for ED drugs and treatments is projected to grow from $3 billion today to over $7 billion by 2032, representing a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period. Many cases of this treatable condition go undiagnosed, however, because of embarrassment. MangoRx’s opportunity isn’t only limited to men suffering from ED. The company’s product can also be used as a performance enhancer. With billions of men sexually active around the globe, the performance enhancement market is also a big one for the company. Drugs like Cialis and Viagra are household names, but there are others on the market that claim to offer benefits over the incumbent. MangoRx says it’s in that category. Its ED pill, Mango, is fast-acting, and the company says very effective. Mango hits the bloodstream in as little as ten minutes and lasts for up to four hours. That gives it a leg up over Viagra, which takes up to 60 minutes to work, and Cialis, which takes about 30 minutes. Treatments start at $12.50 a tablet, making it an affordable option compared to some of its rivals which include Hims & Hers (NYSE: HIMS), Maximus Tribe and Nu Image. Whether you are using it to perform or to enhance the experience, there is no pre-gaming or wining and dining with Mango. Ten minutes after taking the pill, you are ready to go for hours to come. Viagra And Cialis With A Twist Mango is created using a formula of the same active ingredients in Cialis (Tadalafil) and Viagra (Sildenafil). But instead of using just either of the two substances that have been proven to increase blood flow to the penis alone, Mango adds Oxytocin, the so-called love hormone that helps stimulate feelings of intimacy and L-Arginine, an amino acid that opens blood vessels and helps increase blood flow, to the mix. All four of the substances are FDA-approved and have been on the market for years. The result: a fast-acting pill that lasts for hours. Spontaneity is in with Mango. Developing a fast-acting ED pill that’s wallet-sized and tastes good is an achievement in itself, but MangoRx makes it easy to obtain the drugs, which is another game changer. Mango requires a prescription, but obtaining it is easy on MangoRx’s telemedicine platform. After completing an online telehealth visit, one of its network of medical providers will review and approve a prescription. MangoRx will ship it in a discreet box to maintain privacy. It's as simple as that, which appeals to its growing customer base. Sales in MangoRx’s first quarter rose 108%. Whether men need help with ED or want to enhance their sexual experiences, MangoRx makes it easy. The telemedicine platform is quick, easy and discreet. The pills are fast-acting, effective and affordable. With all that to offer, MangoRx seems to be on the way up – like its growing base of clients. Featured photo by Becca Tapert on Unsplash.

Notcoin Continues To Freefall! Could 100x Breakout Presale Be The Answer For Bitcoin Whales?

Total Media

The continued fall of Notcoin has recently had the cryptocurrency market talking. It has recently seen its value plummet due to various factors, including market saturation and diminishing investor confidence. Amid this turmoil, Raboo offers a glimmer of hope with its 100x Breakout Presale, drawing the eyes of Bitcoin whales searching for lucrative new ventures. This presale isn't just a potential lifeline for distressed crypto investors; it's poised to catalyze significant shifts within the market. Read on as we discuss how Raboo's strategic move could redefine investment trajectories in the ever-evolving crypto landscape. Notcoin continues to freefall Notcoin has recently experienced significant market fluctuations, with a sharp decline of about 40% over the last month. This reflects the high volatility and speculative nature that often characterizes Play-to-Earn and meme-driven cryptocurrencies like Notcoin​​​​. These market dynamics highlight several issues impacting Notcoin's position in the cryptocurrency sector. The rapid changes in its value can erode investor confidence and make it challenging for long-term stability. If Notcoin fails to innovate or stabilize its market presence, it could face diminishing investor interest over time, which could have long-term detrimental effects on its valuation and utility. The broader impact on the market and investor trust revolves around this high volatility and the speculative nature of assets like Notcoin, which can lead to significant price fluctuations based on investor sentiment and market trends. Bitcoin's recent market performance Bitcoin's recent market downturn can be attributed to a few significant factors. With a 12.4% decline in the last month, one major contributor has been the large-scale selling by the German government, which has offloaded substantial Bitcoin holdings, triggering price volatility. A general slowdown in whale trading activity has also played a role. These whales have reduced their transactions drastically, indicating a cautious approach, which usually leads to decreased market liquidity and lowered prices​​. This downturn has led Bitcoin whales to explore other investment avenues, seeking higher returns with lower price volatility. New and promising projects like Raboo's 100x breakout presale are drawing attention as alternative investment opportunities. Bitcoin's fluctuations influence the broader crypto market, impacting investment strategies and the financial dynamics within the crypto space. Such shifts underscore the interconnected nature of the market, where significant moves by influential entities or changes in a leading cryptocurrency like Bitcoin can ripple across the entire ecosystem​​​. Could 100x breakout presale be the answer for Bitcoin whales? Raboo's 100x breakout presale has captured the attention of major investors, including Bitcoin whales, thanks to its innovative use of AI technology and a robust community-driven approach. The presale highlights features such as AI-enhanced user interactions and a Post-to-Earn model, which incentivises user participation and content creation. Now in its fourth stage, priced at an attractive $0.0048, Raboo has experienced a 60% increase since its initial price offering of $0.003, with over $1.6 million raised, 10,000 registered users, and 2,900 token holders. This impressive growth showcases its appeal as a dynamic player in the evolving meme coin sector. The strategic maneuvers behind Raboo's presale include targeted marketing campaigns that leverage social media platforms and crypto forums to enhance visibility and attract a diverse investor base, distinguishing it from competitors like Notcoin, which has struggled amid market volatility and investor skepticism. Raboo's successful presale strategy contrasts Notcoin's challenges and positions it as a compelling investment opportunity for Bitcoin whales seeking high returns in the memecoin market. Conclusion As Notcoin navigates its market challenges, Raboo's 100x breakout presale emerges as a beacon for investors, especially Bitcoin whales seeking high-growth prospects. This shift could redefine investment strategies within the cryptocurrency sphere, illustrating the impact of innovative presales on broader market dynamics. Investors are advised to keep a close eye on Raboo's ongoing presale, which promises to influence the market's future trajectory and offer substantial returns. This pivotal moment could reshape how investments flow in the volatile crypto landscape. You can participate in the Raboo presale here.

Maintaining Changed Behaviour With Incentives: The Potential Of Web 3.0 In Mental Health Treatment Through Digital Token Rewards

Benzinga

By Kyle Anthony, Benzinga Initiating change in one’s life often begins with acquiring the fortitude to reflect and realize that it is needed, followed by taking action to actualize it. However, enacting change and achieving progress is never linear, and for many, support is needed along the pathway to betterment. In the field of substance abuse treatment, contingency management has shown evidence of being an efficacious methodology for treating the problem behavior of individuals. The learnings from contingency management in behavioral treatment may have some applicability in supporting mental health. Elevate Health and Wellness, a clinic specializing in mental health and addiction treatment for adolescents and adults, is exploring this possibility by leveraging the capabilities of Web 3.0 in their treatment plans with patients. Contingency Management Explained Dr. Nancy M. Petry, Ph.D.’s extensive research on contingency management highlights its efficacious nature is rooted in the principles of basic behavioral analysis, more specifically, habit formation. Research on the success of contingency management as a treatment methodology has been proven in controlled trials and qualified by stakeholders in the field of psychology. In The Psychiatrist Journal of May 2011, Dr. Petry published an article entitled, Contingency Management: What it is and Why Psychiatrists Should Want to Use It, detailing the evidence-based research done on the behavioral treatment and the cross-sectional nature of its success, reducing usage in opioids, alcohol, marijuana and even cigarettes by patients. Transference Of Learning: Contingency Management And Mental Health The proven success of contingency management in substance use disorders may have some application in facilitating the treatment of some mental health issues within patients. Since the onset of the pandemic, 38% more Americans are participating in mental health care treatment of some kind, whether that be inpatient or outpatient services. But what mental health professionals have noticed is that youth mental health issues are increasing. In 2021, more than 4 in 10 high school students felt persistently sad or hopeless, with more than 1 in 5 students seriously considering attempting suicide. Today's youth are more interconnected through various technological devices and platforms; as such, reaching and engaging with them has to be done through a medium that is ever-present in their lives. Web 3.0 represents a newfound avenue for mental health treatment to occur in a way that resonates with today’s youth while also being effective. By using Web 3.0 as a conduit for contingency management, individuals can receive counseling, encouragement and incentives around specific mental health issues. In essence, using technology to treat individuals empathetically while also incentivizing them to continue treatment as they navigate their mental health journey. Leveraging Technology For Mental Health Implementing blockchain technology to increase mental health services for those who need it instantly at both outpatient and inpatient levels is part of Elevate Health and Wellness' vision as a dual-licensed outpatient clinic specializing in mental health and addiction treatment for adolescents and adults. Tentatively launching in 2024, the company says its token will be used to increase awareness, build a stronger supportive community and connect individuals with mental health disorders and addiction with therapists and psychiatrists instantly. Blockchain-based software will also allow for the creation of smart insurance contracts (i.e., contracts that are self-executing, in which the terms of the agreement are directly written into lines of code) for mental health and wellness to provide an alternative to conventional insurance. Digital token rewards are already being leveraged by brands through Web 3.0 loyalty programs, and they have the potential to be powerful tools for promoting sustainable behaviors. With contingent management strategies suggesting that desirable behaviors should be reinforced quickly, digital tokens can help implement these strategies effectively through rewards that can be awarded quickly, tracked accurately and redeemed easily. As such, embedding contingency management treatment attributes within Elevate’s token could help improve outcomes. Given the greater ownership individuals will have of their information in a Web 3.0 world, therapists and psychiatrists can design treatment plans to specifically reward their patients throughout their treatment plan. The Web 3.0 Future Of Mental Health With Contingent Management Web 3.0 holds the potential to transform healthcare by creating a more patient-centric and personalized treatment plan for individuals. With behavioral treatments like contingency management available to individuals, the ability to form and embed positive habits can help improve patient outcomes. Elevate Health and Wellness is fully prepared to take advantage of this technological advancement for the betterment of its patients and those who need its services the most.
