Gold Lion pills is a proprietary blend of Caviar powder, Tongkit All Root and Cinnamon Powder. Dietary supplements like Gold Lion pills are advertised to help people with penises who are self-conscious about their size. A person with concerns about their penis size may consider purchasing penis enlargement pills.
However, many people who believe their penis is smaller than average actually have an average penis size. A 2021 study notes that many men think that the average length of an erect penis is more than 6 inches (in). However, the research found that the average length of the penis is between 5.1 and 5.5 in.
Another study explains that those with an average penis size but believe they have less girth may have penile dysmorphophobic disorder. This condition causes people to have severe anxiety about their penis size. While most individuals have an average penis size and length, some health conditions may be responsible for a smaller penis size — these include micropenis and Peyronie’s disease.
