It seems that the male enhancement pill market is on a Viagra-high.
The shelves are packed and overstuffed with male enhancement pills. Each brand promises the moon and claims to be the best in the universe. Every brand promises to turn an Average Joe into a monster love machine.
This is why most gullible users are confused. They reach out for the most attractive pack and then suffer in silence and write horrible online reviews, not about the particular brand but about all male enhancement pills. Don’t suck male enhancement pills because they suck, these disappointed users say in their reviews.
But they’re wrong in doing that without trying out the brands that work.
While it is true that most male enhancement pills do not work, there sure are a few brands that work, and that is why such brands have established a cult following. These brands are Vigrx Plus (full review here), Prosolution (full review here), Male Extra (see review here) and Vimax (review can be found here).
In This Review, I Have Pitted Vigrx Plus Against Male Extra.
Here’s how VigRX Plus pills looks like:
And Male Extra:
But before we get into my heavily judgmental review, I’ll answer one fundamental question that’s nagging you:
Who Am I To Review Male Enhancement Pills?
I am an industry insider and my name is Andy Ramirez.
I have been involved in the enhancement industry for longer than you can guess. I know most of the products that lie out there on the shelves. I know how and why these products work, and why many brands don’t.
I do not rely on advertisements or recommendations or reviews to judge a product – I rely on tests, hardcore research and of course, personal experience.
And, I will use this blog to test one bestselling product against the other and lay bare the truth so that my readers can save time and money and end up investing in a product that works.
My Review Is Based On The Following Benchmarks
Every product must be benchmarked against the following exacting standards.
- Does the product work (in real life, not in in-house labs)?
- Was the product successful in clinical tests that were supervised by experts?
- Are its ingredients natural or synthetic? And, are the ingredients natural, and sourced from a quality supplier?
- What is its price? Is it affordable?
- Does the manufacturer offer a no-questions-asked money back guarantee?
The Review: Vigrx Plus V/S Male Extra
Factor 1: Product Efficiency
Many research studies conducted by in-house R & D departments have established that Male Extra does work, but the maximum your penis can gain from it is up to 2 inches. Vigrix Plus, on the other hand, gives you a gain of anywhere between 2 and 4 inches.
Also, Vigrx Plus has been recommended by doctors. If you would like to know more about clinical studies that have been performed, please click here.
That said, Male Extra too does work, but not as “harder” as Vigrix Plus.
Factor 2: Clinical Trials
So far, Male Extra has not been subjected to clinical trials and therefore I cannot comment on its medical efficacy. However, Vigrx Plus has been extensively tested in clinical trials and has proven its worth.
Now, for the most important factor: the ingredients.
Factor 3: Ingredients and their Quality
Here Vigrix Plus scores in a big way over Male Extra.
Every ingredient in Vigrx Plus is natural. It contains the following potent extracts and compounds:
- Bioperine (Piper Nigrum L)
An extract from black pepper, which improves the absorption of nutrients by 30%. It also improves the metabolism.
Which is an extract from a shrub that grows in southwestern Texas. Damiana has been used as an aphrodisiac for 1000s of years and it improves sexual activity by stimulating the libido. Studies on rats have conclusively established that Damiana consumption leads to enhanced sexual activity in both male and female rats. Scientists have also discovered that Damiana corrects sexual dysfunction in human males suffering from diabetes.
- Epimedium Leaf Extract
Which contains the sexual activity-enhancing compound Icariin. Icariin works by increasing nitric oxide levels, which in turn relaxes the penis tissue, leading to very satisfying sexual encounters. In fact, a study on rats has established that when Icariin was directly injected into a rat’s penis, it increased the blood flow, which in turn led to stronger and long-lasting erections. Icariin works just like Sildenafil, the principal ingredient in Viagra.
- Gingko Biloba
Which is known to enhance sexual function. There are 100s of clinical studies that have proved that Gingko enhances sexual desire, performance, activity and afterglow. A study conducted by University of California has established that Gingko was successful in treating anti-depressant sexual function. Gingko works by improving microvascular circulation, which stimulates and enhances erectile function.
- Red Ginseng
A plant extract, which is another well-known human sexual activity-enhancer. Red Ginseng is used to treat erectile dysfunction. In fact, Ginseng has been used as an aphrodisiac for thousands of years in China. Ginseng works by increasing the blood flow to the penis.
- Saw Palmettoberry
Which is another natural aphrodisiac. Saw Palmettoberry is used to treat men with an enlarged prostate. It works by preventing testosterone from being converted into dihydrotestosterone, which causes prostate cells to multiply. It relaxes the smooth muscles, which increase the blood flow to the penis.
- Muira Pauma Bark Extract
Which is used in medicines to fight male impotence by enhancing sexual drive. There are many studies that have conclusively established that Muira Pauma Bark Extract does help males with erectile dysfunction or poor sexual function.
- Catuaba Bark Extract
Which originates in Brazil, is yet another libido enhancer. It dilates blood vessels to increase the blood flow into the penis, which leads to harder and long-lasting erections. It also stimulates the nervous system and boosts energy.
MaleExtra’s ingredients are not that impressive. Here is a rundown:
- MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) 100 mg
MSM is more of a dietary supplement. In medicine, it is used to treat osteoarthritis and certain bladder disorders. Its role in penis enlargement is unsubstantiated. MSM is a colorless solid that occurs in some primitive plants or is synthesized. The MSM used in Male Extra is likely synthesized.
Which is a very important amino acid. This works by producing nitric oxide as it breaks down. The nitric oxide enhances blood flow to the penis leading to harder and long-lasting erections.
A nitrogenous organic acid that supplies energy to the cells in our body, particularly to the muscles. It is primarily used by body builders who want to enhance muscle mass.
- Cordyceps (25 mg)
Is a fungus that has been regarded as an aphrodisiac by the Chinese for many centuries. However, clinical studies are yet to prove such claims or beliefs.
Which does help in producing healthy sperm and correcting nutritional imbalances.
Factor 4: Price (One Year Supply)
A one year supply of Vigrx Plus will set you back by $40.83 a bottle, while a one year supply of Male Extra costs $38.24 a bottle. Male Extra is cheaper as you can see by $1.76 per pack or by $21.12 for 12 packs.
Both brands are affordable considering their solid advantages.
Factor 5: Money Back Guarantee
The money back guarantee offered by both manufacturers does instill my faith in their products. Male Extra offers a 90-day money-back guarantee while Vigrx Plus money back guarantee must be exercised within 67 days.
Well, Vigrx Plus is the winner. It contains natural ingredients and therefore do not have any side effects. It has been successfully tested in clinical trials on humans (not on rats or yeast).
There are 1,000s of happy reviews lauding the product. And, most of all, Vigrx Plus produces results within a short span of time.
Now, I’m not saying that Male Extra is a bad product. The product has worked for many men and it wouldn’t be around in the market if it was ineffective. This product doens’t contain synthetic ingredients. Also, not all the ingredients in Male Extra directly contribute to penis enhancement.
Therefore, I recommend Vigrx Plus over Male Extra. Go for it. And, may the force be with you! 🙂
