Created by Biotab Nutraceuticals, Fast Acting Extenze Extended release is advertised as the perfect male enhancement formula that will enhance your pleasure and performance with all natural ingredients.
Supposedly this powerful supplement will give you everything you need to improve your sexual health, so you can have a “more natural approach to one of life’s greatest pleasures.” With Extenze, you will be able to stimulate blood flow to the erectile chambers for fuller, firmer erections, or so manufacturers would have you believe.
Yet is Extenze a reliable supplement? Let’s take a closer look to find out.
What’s Under the Lid?
There are several ingredients in the Fast Acting ExtenZe Extended Release formula that are known to increase your body’s levels of testosterone. Yet despite the quality of the ingredients, they are grouped into proprietary blends which hides the ingredient amounts. Without the amounts, there is no way to tell if any of the below ingredients will give you any benefits.
• GABA – a chemical in the brain that blocks certain neurotransmissions, resulting in an improved sense of wellbeing and focus.
• TongKat Ali – increases testosterone levels in rats. Additional human studies still need to be conducted.
• Yohimbe Extract – a natural aphrodisiac that may treat erectile dysfunction and arouse sexual excitement. High dosages may be dangerous.
• Niacin – Vitamin B3. Niacin is required for the proper function of fats and sugars for the maintenance of healthy cells.
• Tribulus – increases testosterone levels and lowers high blood pressure. Requires extracts of 85 mg to 250 mg in order to be effective.
• Velvet Bean – contains L-Dopa which in turn converts into the hormone dopamine in the brain. However, most L-dopa is broken down before it reaches the brain.
• Pregnenolone – a naturally produced chemical in the body that acts as a precursor to a wide variety of hormones. It may act like a steroid.
• Chrysin – an isoflavone that offers mild anti-inflammation and anti-oxidant effects on the body.
• L-Arginine HCI – acts as a precursor to nitric oxide in the blood stream which relaxes blood vessels and improves circulation.
• Korean Ginseng – may improve thinking and concentration in smaller dosages, but it requires at least 900 mg daily in order to improve erectile dysfunction.
• Licorice Extract – may improve various digestive complaints such as heartburn and inflammation of the stomach.
• Muira Puama Extract – a South American herb that may improve libido and erectile difficulties but additional studies need to be conducted.
• Damiana Extract – stimulates the nervous system to increase energy levels and stamina.
• Cnidium Extract – a traditional Chinese herb for skin conditions. Further research needed.
• Black Pepper Fruit – increases the absorption of other ingredients.
• BarrenWort Extract – more commonly known as horny goat weed. It mimics the effects of testosterone and stimulates libido.
• Astragalus Extract – an adaptogenic herb that may improve the body’s ability to cope with stress.
Should You Be Concerned About Side Effects?
With such a large proprietary blend of herbs and ingredients, it’s only natural to be a little worried about potential risks and side effects. From what I’ve read of most consumer reviews, Extenze is fairly safe to use on a regular basis.
On the other hand, some of the ingredients such as Tribulus Terrestris may cause stomach upset and nausea, while Yohimbe has been linked to severe cases of liver damage. Consequently, you’ll want to exercise a caution before adding this supplement to your regular diet and consult your physician if you are taking any medications or have high blood pressure.
What Are Consumers Saying?
There are some consumer reviews that can be found online. Mostly all of them are favorable. For instance, this guy obviously loves Fast Acting ExtenZe Extended Release.
“IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SAFE STEROIDS TO GAIN MUSCLE AND STRENGTH, THEN PURCHASE EXTENZE!!!! THIS IS NOT A JOKE!!!!!!! EXTENZE CONTAINS PRO-HORMONES WHICH YOURE BODY CAN CONVERT INTO STEROIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Most of the reviews tend to praise Fast Acting ExtenZe Extended Release as a muscle builder more so than as a sexual enhancement booster. Here is another example of a review with the tone taken down a bit.
“This product has Pro-Hormones in its ingridients. This is NO JOKE. This WILL produce muscle growth, and increase youre natural Androgenic hormones. You will see size, mass and growth results very fast.”
What About Cost?
Fast Acting ExtenZe Extended Release price does not seem very reasonable: selling for about $55. If manufacturers disclosed their ingredient amount, I would be willing to say that the price is reasonable. However, with no way to know if the ingredients are offered in effective amounts, $55 is a lot to ask for.
There is a money back guarantee offered if you buy it from GNC. As with all of GNC’s testosterone boosters there is a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you are not happy with the results in 30 days, you can return it for a full refund. This allows you to try Fast Acting ExtenZe Extended Release almost completely risk free. You will still have to pay for the shipping and handling both ways which can be a bit of a chunk of change.
Is It A Good Product?
My final thoughts on Fast Acting ExtenZe Extended Release are that the pros and cons seem to pretty much balance each other out. The ingredient quality is pretty good but the ingredient amounts are not disclosed. It is expensive but there is a money back guarantee.
Ultimately, I would not advise against Fast Acting ExtenZe Extended Release but you could probably find a similar sexual enhancement booster that discloses the ingredient amounts.
