Does Enzyte & Maxoderm Work?

September 20th, 2007 by Paul Johnson

Perhaps you seen the late night programming of that guy talking with a bunch of girls about penis size and pushing maxoderm. Who could also forget the cheesy guy with a large constant smile advertising enzyte.


Maxoderm and enzyte give the impression that they are penis enlargement pills through their advertising. Does maxoderm and enzyte really increase penis size or are they total junk? Being well versed in the bodybuilding and supplement industry, I decided to research the ingredients of these supplements to find the answer.

About Enzyte:

Enzyte's slogan is "once a day tablet for male enhancement". The commercial and ads give the impression that it is for penis enlargement. Taking a look at the ingredients there is many herbs, many of which I recognize. The most prominent igredients they have that might deal with sexual health are arginine, tribulus, and horny goat weed. They also are not near the top of the ingredient list, so all are low concentration.

Arginine is what many bodybuilders take for their no2 supplements. no2 supplements are supposed to convert to nitric oxide in the body. Viagra also works on nitric oxide. However, science says that no2 supplements do not work. You can read a previous article I did on the science of no2 (arginine) supplements here. Tribulus and possibly horny goat weed, might increase libido, but do little for actual erections. At one time, enzyte actually claimed outright, it increased penis size. They eventually had lawsuits filed against them and retracted those claims.

About Maxoderm:

Maxoderm like enzyte, also uses the term "male enhancement" for the purpose of taking their supplement. In their paid programming program on T.V, they have girls talking about the importance of penis size, then the host implies that maxoderm will help you. Maxoderm has different ingredients and in very different amounts compared to enzyte. The first two ingredients are yohimbe and arginine. Unlike arginine, yohimbe might be beneficial for erection strength and stamina, but certainly not for increasing actual penis size either.

    I’ve been on Enzyte off and on. It increased my libido, that’s all I can say. Which is what I was looking for in that pill anyway. The one thing I don’t like is that I feel like my heart is being squeezed….palpitates hard….I don’t know what that could be or if it’s even related to the pill.

    The libido increase would be from the tribulus, but as far as stimulating the heart, there is no stimulants in enzyte so its probably just a coincidence or a placebo effect.
