Today, there are tons of penis enlargement products making bold claims. Orexis is a natural herbal blend of ingredients which claims to work on heightening sex drive, stamina and erection potency.
Users can take up to 4 capsules a day and results are supposed to occur with 45 minutes of use. With use, the arteries in the penis relax and send an extra surge of blood flowing to the region, resulting in firmer erections.
The following ingredients are found in Orexis:
Tribulus terrestris is a traditional herb that has recently received a lot of attention with claims that it boosts testosterone production. Furthermore, I believe that tribulus is a safe and beneﬁcial herb . It has been used in Europe for thousands of years as a method to treat sexual dysfunction and increase libido.
Taking tribulus by mouth, alone or in combination with other herbs and supplements such as androstenedione, doesn’t seem to enhance body composition or exercise performance in athletes.
Asian ginseng (Panax ginseng), also called Chinese ginseng and Korean ginseng, is available in two forms: red and white. They are prepared differently. White ginseng is dried, while red ginseng is steamed. Although both are common and available, the red form is preferred for medicinal purposes because the active ingredients are broken down when white ginseng is dried out. (Although red ginseng is dried, too, the steaming process done first prevents this breakdown.)
Some of the benefits include • Enhances heart function • Helps increase physical endurance • Helps relieve insomnia and restlessness • Helps relieve stress and anxiety • Helps with forgetfulness • Helps with glucose metabolism • Improves mood.
Horny Goat Weed
Horny Goat Weed (HGW) also known as (Epimedium Sagittum), is used as an aphrodisiac and a treatment for erectile dysfunction. In my personal experience it excels in both areas almost without equal. HGW contains icariin, a PDE5 inhibitor. This means that it affects the smooth muscle tissues of the penis and relaxes them allowing blood to ﬂow in and engorge the penis muscles thus improving erectile function.
Despite HGW’s very effective results as a muscle relaxer, anyone who knows anything about testosterone boosters and has ever taken HGW, knows full well that there is more going on, a lot more.
Yohimbe comes from the bark of evergreen trees only found in West Africa. For years it’s been used as a supplement to improve everything from fat loss and high blood pressure to erectile dysfunction.
But is there any truth to the claims? I started looking into Yohimbe a few years ago because I heard it contained yohimbine, which is an alkaloid that is said to lower blood pres- sure, dilate blood vessels, and improve blood flow throughout the body. By itself, yohimbe helped me maintain a strong erection that lasted long enough to have sex.
Muira puama, also called “potency wood,” is a small tree that grows up to ﬁve meters high and is native to the Brazilian Amazon and other parts of the Amazon rainforest. The small, white ﬂowers have a pungent fragrance similar to Jasmine. The Ptychopetalum genus is a small one – only two species of small trees that grow in tropical South America belong to it.
Muira Puama is one of the most active botanicals with a long history of traditional use as an energy tonic, general health improver and remedy for impotence and sexual insufﬁciency. It is known in some circles as “the Viagra of the Amazon” and in fact, many people now consider it the new Yohimbe but with considerably less potential side effects.
Within Brazilian herbal medicine, Catuaba bark is categorized as a stimulant and is even related to the coca plant, although it does not contain any of the alkaloids found in cocaine.
Catuaba bark is said to enhance the mood, along with aiding symptoms of depression and anxiety. Catuaba bark is also said to have antibacterial and antiviral properties, which may aid those with existing conditions or in fending off certain disorders and diseases. In addition Catuaba has promising activity against Parkinson’s disease.
Damiana is a small shrub with aromatic leaves found on dry, sunny, rocky hillsides in south Texas, Southern California, Mexico, and Central America.
Damiana leaves have been used as an aphrodisiac and to boost sexual potency by the native peoples of Mexico, including the Mayan Indians. The two species used in herbal healing, both of which are referred to as Damiana, are Turnera aphrodisiaca and Turnera diffusa.
Historically, Damiana has been used to relieve anxiety, nervousness, and mild depression, especially if these symptoms have a sexual component. The herb is also used as a general tonic to improve wellness. Damiana has also been used traditionally to improve digestion and to treat constipation, as in larger doses it is thought to have a mild laxative effect.
Within the first month, men may begin to see noticeable increases in energy while erections are stronger and harder. Orexis claims that during month two, sexual partners should begin seeing dramatic changes including better confidence in intimate encounters and an increase in sexual enjoyment among sexual partners.
By month three, the body has had a steady supply of the herbal blend used in Orexis and is steadily supplying the body with the nutrients needed. At this stage, the dosage can be reduced to 1 or 2 pills a day to receive the same benefits.
Men with heart problems, high blood pressure and those taking MAO Inhibitors should not take Orexis. Individual ingredients could also cause side effects, for instance, horny goat weed can cause dizziness and thirst.
Orexis is a blend of tribulus terrestris, horny goat weed, yohimbine extract, muira puama, Panax ginseng, catuaba and damiana.
These herbs have some proven benefits including acting as aphrodisiacs, boosting testosterone production and increasing energy.
• Costing $50 for a one-month supply, Orexis is not the most expensive sexual enhancer on the market but it is also higher-priced than formulas with better blends of ingredients.
• Yes, Orexis does provide customer testimonials on their sight, but since these individuals are only identified by first name and in some cases last initial. With no pictures shown it is impossible to verify that these testimonials are legitimate. An approval by a physician simply listed as “Dr. Haltiwanger” is also undocumented since no first name, business address or contact information is offered to verify his supposed support of Orexis.
• Orexis does provide a 30-day guarantee, but most men will need longer than this to accurately determine if the product works well for them.
Is It Worth It?
We scoured the Internet for customer reviews, talked to our friends that had tried the product and even used it ourselves with mediocore results.
The overwhelming consensus was that Orexis failed to measure up, even those who took the product for the recommended period of 3 months or longer did not experience any significant changes in fullness of erections or pleasure. Furthermore, Orexis has not been backed by clinical studies so many of t he product claims leave more to be desired.
