Extenze is a male enhancement product and marketed to senior men and also the men of all ages in general, to enhance their sex lives by increasing the time to ejaculation, providing harder erections and penis size increase.
ExtenZe Plus (updated version of previous formula) is a herbal male enhancement supplement that helps improve the strength and frequency erection and boosts libido. The new Extenze plus formula is a gel cap (not tablet), which helps in getting absorbed quickly. Also, it has “Extended release formula” with time-release beadlets, which basically helps in the controlled release of slow metabolizing ingredients (Velvet Bean Extract, Niacin, Yohimbe, Tribulus terrestris, DHEA, and Tongkat Ali) for longer lasting results.
Millions of senior men every year are affected by erectile dysfunction. Although lack of sex potency is something more of a natural occurrence that comes with aging because of declining sex hormones levels and cause the loss of a man’s confidence and self-esteem, either in the bedroom or in regular life. Most men over 50 will look for a product that can provide them with the sexual arousal and sexual potential they might be lacking.
Just like the many scams started in the “male enhancement” industry, Extenze is offering men the chance to increase their genital size and boost their sex life. It is not the first time the world has seen such a ‘miracle’ product. Like Enzyte, the product claims a 24-27% size increase. However, the medical fraternity backing this product seems to be comprised of fake, phony doctors.
The product was also promoted on a popular infomercial featuring Dr. Daniel Stein, a doctor who lies. This infomercial captured the attention of desperate men and this was good marketing.
Dr. Stein wrote this advertisement which appears as a full-page ad in Stuff magazine. In the ad Dr. Stein makes it extremely clear that he has never endorsed any other penis growth pill before. He uses his medical degree to tell men Eztenze can make their penis grow.
But, a closer analysis reveals that he promoted another male enhancement product Alzare, besides Extenze tabs and product lines years ago.
Is the product really good?
Let’s look at the ingredients found in the product.
Micronized DHEA (to increase Testosterone in the body, does a good job)
Tribulus Extract (to increase Testosterone again)
Deer Velvet Antler (to increase human growth hormone. Read more on this here.)
The sheer variety of ingredients in this supplement is a strong positive. Assuming the quality of the herbal extracts in the product is good, Extenze does seem to be a worthwhile product.
Cons of Extenze
However, there are the following cons:-
2. It contains the chemical from the Cameroonian tree called, Yohimbe. It’s a powerful stimulant and has some serious side effects associated with it. These include: abnormal heart beat, dizziness, headaches, and insomnia. The chemical boosts sexual desire and energy. People suffering form heart conditions should definitely avoid this.
3. Does not effectively use the dopamine and HGH mechanism for male enhancement.
4. Coupled with some “unethical marketing” and huge number of consumer complaints, it definitely creates a huge doubt in minds of buyers.
More unethical marketing done in the past by Extenze
In 2006, the company behind Extenze was fined $300,000 dollars. They were also told to stop giving the impression that the product could increase penis size by 24%. Yet the company continued to sell and scam men out of their money and continued with their deceptive advertising.
The way the company would lure people in, was by forcing the consumers to sign up for their auto billing program. The program fee was $30 and then the additional price of the product. People would give their credit card information, only to realize that they have been charged multiple times. The company said they had a money back guarantee after 30 days, which of course, turned out to be a lie. The customer support workers would claim to have lost the refund request, leaving the consumers lost and without a refund.
It is important for consumers of today to make sure they perform the required research on a product before buying it. Whether it is a medical product, or a website selling cheap designer purses, these products will likely be a scam, cheating consumers out of their money. Without conducting research, consumers can find themselves trying to apply for a refund only to be rejected and stuck with the loss of potentially hundreds or thousands of dollars.
Remember, cheap is not good. Free trials are worst
It is becoming more and more easy for fake male enhancement companies to create a fake product that appeal to men. Creating false, eye popping ads on the internet is easy and accessible to everyone. This is why users are required to follow web safety tips.
Do not click on any ads as they can even lead to a virus or even you buying the product, giving your credit card information and being charged double, triple, or even ten times the original amount. Finding yourself with ridiculous credit debt because of a small mistake is embarrassing and scary. Users need to be more cautious when purchasing products from infomercials and ads online.
