Zyrexin is manufactured and distributed by LA-based Superbalife International, a nutraceuticals company specializing in men’s health products and distributes in more than 48,000 retail stores in North America. The supplement proclaims itself as the “world’s strongest sexual enhancer,” promising that its formula will work in under an hour. Claiming a proprietary herbal blend, it works to increase libido for up to 24 hours, with one to two recommended tablet intake prior to sex for long-lasting benefits.
Zyrexin’s benefits is broken down according to its primary ingredients, include the use of the proprietary compound Butea superba, considered the only natural PDE-5 inhibitor known to nature and assisting with male erectile issues. Other ingredients include L-arginine and horny goat weed, both common herbal extracts for enhanced nitric oxide production for improved circulation; Xanthoparmelia scabrosa and Cnidium monnier, traditionally harnessed aphrodisiacs and anti-impotence components; and yohimbe extract, an aphrodisiac and stimulant that has been slapped with warnings and a ban by the FDA and many scientific experts for its unintended effects.
Zyrexin published this ingredient list on its website:
- Proprietary Herbal Blend: Epimedium Extract (Leaves), Yohimbe Extract (Bark) (8 Mb Yohimbine Alkaloids), Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa Extract (Lichen), Ginkgo Extract (Leaves), Cnidium Extract (Fruit), Velvet Bean Extract (Seed), Butea Superba Extract (Tubers), L-Arginine
- Other Ingredients: Microcrystalline Cellulose, Dextrose, Starch, Stearic Acid, Hydroxy Propyl Methylcellulose, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Titanium Dioxide, Triacetin, FD&C Blue 1 Aluminum Lake
Whatever effort the makers of Zyrexin put into building the product’s credibility and position in the marketplace is easily ruined to the ground by the inclusion of yohimbe, which we strongly caution against and would rather not have in a male enhancement supplement. The documented effects include shakes, anxiety, and overstimulation, and this is unacceptable if one is eyeing regular therapy or whenever the situation in bed demands. It is also easy to dismiss Zyrexin for its lack of clinical and third-party verified data, on top of the incomplete details divulged about its formula and the expected timeline of benefits.
Given these setbacks and challenges with the product, it could be prudent to look elsewhere, a male sexual booster that can perform well with minimal potential reactions and good value for hard-earned money.
