Xtreme Nitro boldly calls itself an “Advanced Bodybuilding Agent.” The attractive benefits promised on the label include:
- Rapid Fat Loss
- Insane Strength
- Raging Energy
- Maximized Libido
- Wicked Pumps
And that is exactly the type of over-the-top tone used in marketing this product. Frankly, it’s very hyped up. The packaging and website feature plenty of jacked guys, bulging with muscles lifting heavy weights. They also mention that their product has been seen in Men’s Fitness, Men’s Health, and Muscle and Fitness. When we reached out to the advertising departments at all of those publications, however, they said they never heard of it.
If you’ve done any amount of research on this supplement, you’ve probably come across some blog post somewhere all about how if you combine Xtreme Nitro with another supplement like Maxx Test, you’ll get some insane gains in both size and strength. We’ve seen the ads, blogs and newsletters too, and we’ll let you know the real truth about them later. For now, let’s dive into the ingredients list and supplement profile to learn more about how it works.

Xtreme Nitro Ingredients and How They Work
As the name suggests, Xtreme Nitro is a nitric oxide boosting supplement. Nitric oxide dilates your blood vessels to allow more blood to flow through them. The more blood pulsing toward your muscles during workouts, the more oxygen they get, the better they perform, and the more quickly they recover. This is especially true if you’re performing high intensity exercises, because if your workouts are that much more efficient, they will be that much more effective. Not to mention the sexual benefits of increased blood flow. Nitric oxide has been proven to be a key component of thick, hard erection.
The ingredients in Xtreme Nitro are:
- Green Tea Extract which is an antioxidant that boosts and protects overall health. It also helps you keep focused for longer and more intense workouts. (1)
- L-Arginine which is a precursor to nitric oxide. The truth is that nitric oxide is a gas so you can’t actually supplement it. You can, however, give your body precursors that it can convert into the gas.
- Chromium enhances the body’s metabolism of sugar and helps with fat loss.
- Yohimbine HCL also increases nitric oxide levels in the blood, much in the same way as L-Arginine. Extracted from yohimbe , this compound has also been used for hundreds of years as a libido and vitality booster. Yohimbine has actually been shown to be quite effective, but it can also cause dangerous side effects, and is not safe for those with diabetes, blood pressure, or heart problems. It only contains 5 mg of yohimbe , so the side effects would probably be minimal.
Xtreme Nitro should be taken twice daily, according to the label, with one dose of 1 – 2 capsules.
At a glance, the formula should work; All of these are proven ingredients and are present in reasonable dosages. The problem with this supplement, as you’ll see later, is not with its contents though.
My Personal Results
Energy / Vascularity: My Results With Xtreme Nitro were mixed. On the one hand, it seemed to give me a boost in energy, and a more pronounced vascular look. The biggest issue was this only seemed to last for the first week, and then it went away. It was like my body adapted to the ingredients, and flushed them out of my system very quickly.
Muscle building / Getting Ripped benefits: I didn’t see any major changes in size as a result of using Xtreme Nitro. When I first started taking it, I weighed in at around 197 lbs. and after a month I had only lost about 2 lbs. I didn’t change my diet or anything, but I was working out a bit longer each session, maybe 10 – 15 min. more. But a six abs or chiseled arms or chest? Not at all…
Sexual Benefits: I definitely felt the libido boosting benefits, probably because of the yohimbe. Yohimbe bark extract is actually a very well known aphrodisiac that has been used for hundreds of years to promote sexual prowess and well being, and Xtreme Nitro has 5 mg of it.
However, this didn’t come without a price. Like the dozens of times I’ve used yohimbe, I got side effects ranging from dry mouth to light nausea. I didn’t throw up or anything, but definitely felt the effects. Another thing I wanted to note is that the capsules are HUGE, so if you have trouble swallowing you might want to break open the capsule and dump it into some water or something.
Potential Side Effects
Apart from a greatly decreased bank account, some of the ingredients in Xtreme Nitro can cause some fairly worrying side effects.
Large doses of chromium, for example, can cause stomach discomfort and even damage to the liver and kidneys. Chromium is also so good at its job of increasing sugar metabolism that you may experience drastically low blood sugar.
Arginine can also cause stomach problems including bloating and diarrhea. In extreme cases, it’s possible to have severe respiratory issues, especially if you already have allergies and/or asthma. Arginine, as a vasodilator, can also cause low blood pressure and nausea.
Perhaps most concerning, though, are the potential side effects of yohimbe. Among these are nausea, vomiting, increased blood pressure, rapid pulse, irritability, anxiety and skin flushing. In rare cases, much more severe reactions have also been reported which included extreme pain in the fingers, toes and penis of patients.
I do have to stress, though, that these sort of reactions are extremely rare. Yohimbine – the active compound in yohimbe – is a very potent substance but, when used correctly, absolutely works.
Impressions From the Internet
It’s always interesting to see the general feel for a product that you can get by spending just a brief time with your favorite search engine. For me, personally, huge red flags start to fly whenever I see promotional material that is this replete with typos and grammatical errors. If, for example, a website promoting the product asks a question like “Who Xtreme Nitro Perform?” I get worried.
There are also several, extremely suspicious websites out there selling Xtreme Nitro and advertising their free trial under different names. In addition to the aforementioned terrible English used in these promotional efforts, the websites often have such odd and ridiculous names as “Strenght Muscle.”
More convincingly, though, negative reviews about this product can be found all over the internet. Primarily, these complaints are in regard to the “free trial” and overall suspicious billing practices. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has processed 12 complaints about this company, all of which had to do with advertising, sales and customer service issues. According to customer complaints, once you are locked in to this trial, it is nearly impossible to get free. Calling customer service seems to be a dead end, with representatives that are full of excuses and claim to be totally incapable of issuing refunds.
Some disgruntled customers have even gone so far as to as cancel their credit cards to get free of this financial trap. In fact, it is extremely suspicious that this product is only available through this troublesome auto-refill program and cannot be purchased in stores. Although, there is the occasional bottle available for sale on Amazon and Ebay from former customers hoping to recover some of their loses.
When it comes to actual results, however, customer reviews are mixed. To be fair, we need to be clear than it’s common practice for supplement companies to pay people to write favorable reviews for them so you can’t always trust when you see on blogs and comment sections of various websites. That being said, some customers do report good results – particularly with regard to sexual performance.
For the most part, though, people are largely dissatisfied with the results they get from this rather costly product – especially when they encounter the issues discussed above.
Xtreme Nitro Pros and Cons
A quick comparison of what’s good and what’s bad about a product is a great way to come to a smart decision about whether or not to buy.
- It’s beneficial to muscle building and sexual function.
- It’s only available through a free trial offer which signs you up for a monthly auto-shipping program.
- It contains Yohimbine which can be potentially dangerous, particularly with daily use.
- It can become quite expensive.
- 12 complaints on the BBB website about problems with the product, giving it an F rating
Where to Buy
You can order Xtreme Nitro through a free trial offer online. You are sent a one month supply for $1.95. If you don’t cancel within 14 days of your order date, you are automatically enrolled in a monthly shipping program where you’ll receive a new supply every month, and your credit card will be charged $74.95 each month as well.
Like most of the other “miracle” supplements we come across, this one cannot be found in stores like GNC or Vitamin shoppe, not that it would make a difference anyway. My guess is that this supplement will probably be off the market in a few months, primarily because they don’t seem to be building a brand. On the contrary, it seems like this company is doing all that they can to lay low. One customer was even told that they recently split into “sister companies” and there are several websites all using the same promotional artwork claiming to represent the company
Another thing I wanted to mention is that if you got stuck in one of those monthly rebilling deals with Xtreme Nitro, if you have any unopened bottles you don’t want you can always try selling them on Ebay. I recently saw a guy pushing a bottle for $46, so at least you can get some of your money back.
Bodybuilding supplements are serious business. There are several reputable brands that you can go with that don’t charge an arm and a leg for you to try their product. They’ve got the knowledge and experience to help you get what you need to perform at your best. Xtreme Nitro is not one of them. They pack nothing proprietary or “essential” into their supplement, and their sales tactics are gimmicky and deceiving. Overall, there are much more reliable companies out there offering products that are better formulated and more affordable.
Even if it worked (which it didn’t for me), Xtreme Nitro is a fly-by-night product that cares far more about getting you locked into a monthly billing cycle than they do about your well-being or your ability to achieve your goals.

For all of you looking at sites to see if you should get Xtreme Nitro, DO NOT get this product.
1. Product does not do a single thing. My multivitamin gives me more of a boost than Xtreme Nitro does.
2. If you order their “free trial”, i guarantee you will lose more than $50 and hours of your life.
3. Their customer service is the worst ive ever had. They hung the phone up in my ear 3 times, put me on hold for 20 minutes until i realized that nobody would be coming back so i hung up myself and called again.
4. DO NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT OR ANYTING FROM THIS COMPANY

DONT PURCHASE Xtreme Nitro
ABSOLUTELY DO NOT PURCHASE Xtreme Nitro! IT DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. MY PROGRESS WAS MONITORED BY TRAINED DOCTORS AND THERE WERE NO IMPROVEMENTS. A PLACEBO PILL WAS ALSO USED AND THE RESULTS WERE THE SAME! THE CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS AWFUL. I RECOMMEND YOU STICK WITH STORE GNC PRODUCTS OR STICK WITH A NATURAL DIET.
WASTE OF TIME. WASTE OF MONEY.
