ExtenZe is a male enhancement supplement for improving erection and enhancing libido. It is a gel capsule designed to be easily absorbed by the body.

The latest ExtenZe gelcap contains the “Extended Release” formula — mini-beads that control the release of several active ingredients. ExtenZe is also referred to as “ExtenZe Black”, “Extenze Plus”, and “ExtenZe Extended Release”.Extenze pills review by ahcafr

Yeah it works. Maybe not for you.


The first pill I got boners all night even if I slightly thought about sex. Got hard and stayed hard every time. Nothing I could do. All day and all night and all day. I did not get tired for 36 hours.

The second day was more normal. I have noticed increased muscle growth at the gym, but nothing I didn't have when I was a teenager. The sales page says I need to take the pill for 2-6 months for full effects.

If you want to have crazy fun for one night, it's awesome if you can handle it. I loved it. Just like anything, nothing is ever as good as that first time. Could make a nice sex popper even if you don't use it every day. If she lives past the first night 😉



I was a fan of pills 10 years ago and have already tried almost anything that was introduced to the general public.

Extenze is one of the pills I tried and is one of the worst pills I ever tried.

Some of the pills I took had good results in terms of energizing me and improving my libido. Some never worked. And Extenze - well it is on a different level of being a bad pill.

First, the pill never worked like they say it should.

Second, it caused very bad side effects including affecting my blood pressure, which didn't go well for me. I needed to go to the emergency room just by wanting to improve my manhood.

That's been about 10 years ago now, and I learned a lot of things. These pills will either work a little (but never expect getting a bigger penis unless your doctor prescribed you something for that), won't work at all, or will get you in trouble.

The past 5 years, I started penile exercises - jelqing, kegels and stretching. They work and the results are somewhat permanent. What's great is they're also free.

Another thing that worked for me is pumping - I don't always do it - just when I need to, but it's definitely worth investing in a high-quality pump.

Worst thing ever!!!!!


I took it one time and had the worst nausea, vomiting, muscle tremors, and major anxiety. Oh and couple that with the amazing 125 bpm heart rate for hours. Can't tell you how long the side effects will last because they haven't gone away yet! Going on 7 hours so far.

If you want to feel as bad as you ever have, this is the pill for you!!!! One warning on the package is: do not take if you are pregnant or nursing! I hope I can sue this company. One other thing I forgot is that it also causes cancer. How can this company still be in business?

Not working


Been taking it for over a week. Not working at all. I just read the review from Canada. Not liking this at all.

I'm really sick


Don't waste your money. The first time I took it, I got horrible pain in my balls. Then the second time I took it, after about 2hrs I started sweating, rise in body temperature, chills, and really bad nausea. I'm going to contact my attorney and go after this company!

Extenze rated 2.2/5 based on 33 reviews.

How it works

ExtenZe’s effects lay in its unique blend of ingredients.

As an erection pill, ExtenZe promotes better blood flow to the penile area. Some components that contribute to this effect include Yohimbe, Tribulus, Ginseng, Horny Goat Weed, and L-Arginine. By maximizing a guy’s erection, ExtenZe appears to increase the size of his erect penis as well.

As men age, they will experience gradual testosterone loss, which leads to loss of libido and impotence. ExtenZe counters this problem with herbs and prohormone ingredients that boost testosterone production.


ingredients labelWhen Biotab made the new ExtenZe, it made few changes. One of these is the inclusion of “Extended Release” mini-beads, which contain DHEA, Niacin, Tribulus extract, Velvet Bean Extract, GABA, Yohimbe, and Tongkat Ali.

Here is a rundown of what you will find inside ExtenZe:

  • Prohormone blend: In men, testosterone decreases with age, which in turn causes low sexual drive. ExtenZe contains micronized DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) and pregnenolone which brings back testosterone into normal levels. Pregnenolone is a precursor to DHEA, which in turn is a precursor to testosterone.[2] Thus, having a good deal of DHEA in the body (either directly through DHEA supplements or indirectly through pregnenolone) ensures a healthy dose of testosterone.[3]
  • Folate: This vitamin is linked to the reduction of abnormal sperms. For a guy who already plans to become a father, folate is a good thing as it prevents the occurrence of birth defects in babies.[4]
  • Niacin: As part of ExtenZe, niacin or vitamin B3 contributes some of its libido-boosting and pro-erectile properties to the supplement. Niacin also assists in the production of sex hormones and improvement of blood circulation.[5]
  • Ginseng: As a natural remedy for erectile dysfunction, Ginseng’s erection-boosting power lies in its ability to increase nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels to let blood flow smoothly into the penis.[6]
  • L-Arginine: L-Arginine is an amino acid and, like ginseng, also enhances nitric oxide levels in the body.[7]
  • Yohimbe Bark Extract: Yohimbe blocks “alpha-2 adrenoceptor”, a body receptor which inhibits erection.[8]
  • Horny Goat Weed (Barrenwort): This herb contains Icariin, a natural PDE5 inhibitor. PDE5 inhibits blood vessels from dilating and interfere with a guy’s erection.[9]
  • Tribulus Extract: The extract from the Tribulus herb has pro-erectile and aphrodisiac properties.[10]
  • Velvet Bean Extract: This exotic legume is known to enhance sperm quality. It’s also known as a libido booster by influencing the brain to produce dopamine.[11]
  • GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid): It is hard to achieve orgasm if you are feeling tense or anxious, and GABA counters these emotions from happening.[12]
  • Tongkat Ali: This popular herb from Asia is a known testosterone booster. It also prevents premature ejaculation and assists fast recovery during sexual activity.[13]
  • Cnidium: The herb is native to China and is used to increase sexual performance and sexual drive.[14]
  • Chrysin: Chrysin enhances sperm health and is also a testosterone booster.[15]
  • Damiana: An herb that is native to Mexico, Damiana contains alkaloid compounds that stimulate blood flow to the penile area and cause a better erection.
  • Muira Puama: This “potency wood” enhances libido, stamina, and erection.[16]
  • Licorice: While Licorice has a healthy effect on the development of sperms, this stuff is often blended with other testosterone-boosting ingredients as it is known to weaken the action of testosterone in the body.[17][18]
  • Astragalus: This herb encourages the kidney to release more sodium, which indirectly reduces the risk of prostate diseases and erectile dysfunction.[19]
  • Black pepper: While black pepper is more known for its health benefits, this spice also has libido-boosting effects.[20]


  • You don’t need a prescription to buy ExtenZe.
  • If you’re not satisfied, there is a 60-day money-back guarantee (minus the shipping fee).


  • ExtenZe could only enhance the size of an erect penis, and it does not bring permanent enlargement.
  • While the content is packed with ingredients, only four components—Niacin, Folate, DHEA, and pregnenolone—have specified amounts.

Side effects

ExtenZe contains Yohimbe which can cause severe nausea, sweating, upset stomach, high blood pressure or increased heart rate in some users.

If you have an existing medical condition or have allergic reactions to any of the ingredients, stop taking the supplement and consult your doctor.


  • VigRX Plus: For consumers who prefer a male enhancement supplement that does not contain Yohimbe, VigRX Plus is a good choice. Read our separate VigRX Plus review.
  • Male Extra: By comparing the one-month package, Male Extra is slightly pricier than ExtenZe. However, if you want some peace of mind on knowing the exact levels of herbs you are ingesting, it is better to choose Male Extra. ExtenZe has not listed specific levels for 15 of 19 of its ingredients; only those for Niacin, Folate, DHEA and pregnenolone are indicated. Read our separate Male Extra review.
  • original extenze packageExtenze original: Both supplements are made by Biotab but the new Extenze has the “Extended Release” formula for long and lasting effects. Some users would prefer the form of gelcaps over tablets as gelcaps are easier to swallow.
  • Semenax: This pill focuses more on semen volume rather than erection quality and ED treatment. Read our Semenax review to find out more.
  • Viagra: Viagra is an FDA-approved drug for erectile dysfunction, but it is expensive ($70 for one tablet). If you like to try an erection pill without spending that much money, you can try ExtenZe. Better yet, you can always ask for a refund if you’re not satisfied.


Take one gelcap daily, preferably on a full stomach for full tolerance. You should take the supplements continuously for at least three months for maximum results.

FDA Warning

In 2013, the FDA tested samples labeled as “ExtenZe Maximum Strength” and found traces of sildenafil. Sildenafil is the active ingredient of Viagra and is not an official ingredient of ExtenZe.[21]

The sample tested by FDA could be counterfeit. Nevertheless, FDA issued a warning to consumers to be cautious in buying ExtenZe. Sildenafil interacts with drugs for diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease, which can cause harm if in unregulated doses.


For genuine products, it’s best to place your order online at the official ExtenZe site. GNC and Walmart stores also sell Extenze but the older version.

One box contains 30 gelcaps. The recommended serving is one gelcap per day, so a box is enough for one-month consumption.

Package Price (shipping fee is excluded)
1 month $60
2 months $110
3 months $160
6 months $310

The usual shipping fee for 3-6 days delivery is $30. For the 6-month package, this fee is free if delivery is within the US.

This will guarantee the quality and the latest ingredients formula.


In 2006, a lawsuit was filed against Biotab for its claim that ExtenZe can cause a permanent increase in penis length. The case focused on the claim being unbacked by a scientific evidence and not if ExtenZe is a faulty product. This event earned the ire of consumers and led the company to gain a bad reputation. In 2011, Biotab settled the case without admitting any guilt.[22]

In 2010, Olympic track-and-field champion LaShawn Merritt was banned from competition for using ExtenZe.[23] DHEA, which ExtenZe contains, is a banned substance as it is classified as a performance enhancer.

Results and Conclusion

Unless you have a heart ailment, diabetes or other health condition, there is nothing wrong with trying Extenze. You should see the results within 2-3 days, but give Extenze 8 weeks to fulfill its potential to boost your libido and erection quality. If you tried it and did not get the expected results, you can return the product and get a refund.

Just like any male enhancement supplements, you must set your expectations right with ExtenZe. While this product can increase erect penis length by half to a whole inch, such effect is only temporary. If you want to gain permanent increase, it is best to use ExtenZe with penile exercises.

The new gelcap form makes it easy to swallow, and the once-a-day serving is not hard to follow. If you prefer to take a tablet or a liquid, you can check the original ExtenZe or the Extenze drink. However, the time-release formula gives the new ExtenZe some advantage in keeping the effects longer.

ExtenZe is a very popular male supplement, and it is not surprising to find counterfeits out there. If you want to get the genuine product, only order from the official site.[24]

Be careful, this thing is dangerous


Never noticed anything sexual after taking this for 1 week. It just made me feel uneasy, I wish I didn't take the second dose.

All week of taking this pill, I had nausea, light-headedness, and terrible headache.

I made my own research to see if these symptoms will go away after a few days or if it is normal to feel this way the first week.

I read an article about Health Canada taking Extenze products out of the stores. Not just this pill, there are also 3 other Extenze products including a female enhancement supplement.

These products contain ingredients called pregnenolone and dehydroepiandrosterone - ingredients that need a prescription because they can cause cancer.

These ingredients can abnormally increase female and male hormones that can result in prostate, breast, and ovarian cancer.

One ingredient which I also noticed in other supplements is yohimbine. This ingredient causes high blood pressure, so if you are already suffering from high blood pressure, this ingredient must be avoided.

Better sex drive


I had zero to minimal results with supplements I tried in the past. I have not tried any prescription meds as they are expensive. For me, Extenze is decent. I was aiming to increase my sex drive, and I got that with this pill.

In my honest opinion, I think the size increase benefit has been exaggerated, which is why ExtenZe is getting a bad reputation. If a guy wants to increase his penis size, he must focus on exercises or use extenders instead of pills.

Not a miracle cure


I have been a regular user of ExtenZe, with okay to good results. I also tried VigRX Plus and other supplements, but I found ExtenZe works better for me. It is not a miracle cure though. I just use it along with regular exercises with my pump.

Better erection quality


After three days, I did notice something. My erection quality was better than before, and my sex drive was also high. Of course, I did not gain any length, but it seems my penis gained extra thickness. Perhaps, it’s because my erection was way better. Next time, I will measure my girth.

Nothing happened after two weeks


I joined the hype. I tried it for two weeks, but nothing happened. I just got a bit hornier than usual, so I decided to return it. For now, I do penile exercises, and that’s how I gained an extra inch.

Before and after


I am using ExtenZe for four months now, and it took one month before my wife noticed something. I have not felt any side effects until today. The frequency of our sex increased from once a week to twice a week now. Furthermore, I feel so hard during sex.

I think the expectations for this product are not right. It’s not a medication for erectile dysfunction. If you have been diagnosed with ED, ExtenZe is not for you. This product is for people who simply want to boost their erection and libido beyond normal levels.

Some personal side effects


I tried it one time, and it gave me a full erection. But then after, I got cold sweats, and my blood pressure shot up. I can’t tolerate it, so I stopped taking it. The box needs to have big prints of explicit warnings.

No visible results


I have ED. I don’t want to take Viagra, so I was hoping ExtenZe could help me to some extent. Compared to other erection supplements, ExtenZe is slightly more effective. Still, I would hardly call it satisfactory.

Just a blood flow booster


ExtenZe has little effect on me. It gives you a blood rush, that’s it. My staying power remained the same.

Maybe a placebo effect


At first I thought the pills were working. However, the initial effects have worn off. I still have three pills left out of my one-month supply, and I do not see an increase in erection anymore. Perhaps it’s just a placebo effect.

Safer and cheaper alternatives


The pills are expensive. They don't work. They won’t help you gain any size. If you want a better erection, there are much safer and cheaper ways. Either you buy the ingredients at the store with a fraction of the price or do penile exercises instead. You’ll gain real and permanent growth, and your boner will improve as well.

Orgasm is 5x better


You won’t gain inches of growth. But you’ll feel five times better when you cum.

Hardly satisfactory


I have ED. I don’t want to take Viagra, so I was hoping ExtenZe could help me to some extent. Compared to other erection supplements, ExtenZe is slightly more effective. Still, I would hardly call it satisfactory.
