Fact Checked On: 12-3-2018

It’s been awhile since I have tried any male enhancement products.

When I saw the Extenze Liquid shot sitting on the shelves of a local Walgreens I visited recently, I decided to pick up a 2 pack.

Having tried all of the previous Extenze products, I had a few reservations going into this test.

My experiment with the original formula back in 2011 left me with some pretty bad side effects from the yohimbe, which included:

  • Fever like symptoms
  • Nausea
  • A pretty ridiculous headache that lasted for days.

However, with their new and improved Extenze Plus, I didn’t get any nasty side effects from it.

In fact, it turned out to be one of the best male enhancement supplements I’ve ever tested, and I’ve tested close to 100 at this point.

So, was Extenze Liquid shots going to leave me curled up on the couch watching Breaking Bad reruns and swearing to God, Allah, and Jehova that I would never take it again?

Or was it going to give me a massive boner and orgasms the likes of which I experienced with Extenze Plus?

Well, let’s talk a little bit about what Extenze Liquid is all about first.

What is Extenze Liquid Shot?

potential side effects with Extenze Shot

As you can see from the image above, Extenze Liquid Shot looks like your typical 5 hour energy bottle.

Instead of giving you a massive boost in energy, it’s supposed to give you a big boost in sexual arousal and libido.

It does this through a blend of ingredients that includes the following:

  • L-Arginine
  • Malic Acid
  • Betaine HCL (never heard of this one)
  • GABA
  • L-Theanine
  • Caffeine
  • Yohimbe
  • Panax Ginseng
  • Rhodiola Rosea
  • Maca Root
  • Horny Goat Weed

as well as a healthy dose of Niacin (12.5 mg) and Zinc (5 mg).

Here’s a snapshot of the label:

eztenze liquid shots ingredients label

The two key ingredients in Extenze Liquid shots seems to be the combo of L-Arginine and Yohimbe.

This is a VERY powerful combo that’s actually been clinically studied and proven to work. (See the study here)

Consequentially, it’s also found in several dozen other male enhancement products, including Libido Max and Zyrexin.

Frequently Asked Questions

How fast does it work?

I talk about this a bit in my review below, but for me the effects from Extenze Liquid Shot seemed to kick in within 5 – 10 minutes.

The full effects seemed to kick in after 30 minutes or so, and after 3 or 4 hours I didn’t feel anything.

extenze liquid how fast does it work

Basically this all comes down to your own body chemistry, metabolism, even your weight will have an impact on how fast, and how long it works.

What’s flavors do they have?

Not much of a choice here, the only flavor they make is called Big Cherry.


How does it taste? Is there an aftertaste?

It tastes a bit chalky, but it’s very sweet and tangy at first, sort of like sour patch kids if you’ve ever had them.

There was a bit of an aftertaste, but that went away after a few minutes.

Will it make you bigger?

If by that you mean ‘Will it grow my penis?‘ then no. However, it can help to give you a bit of a boost in erections, which could make you feel bigger temporarily.

In fact, one guy that left a review on our site below said that he actually saw a little bit of a girth gain about an hour after taking it.

With that said, it will NOT cause any sort of PERMANENT gains in size.

Where can I buy it?

Unlike the vast majority of other male enhancement products out there, you can find Extenze Liquid Shots pretty much everywhere.

All the major retailers like GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, and even 7-11 carry it. I’ve even seen it for sale in some gas stations.

Your best bet as far as getting the best deal would be to buy it online on sites like Amazon or eBay.

How much does it cost?

The average retail price for a 2 pack is $8.50, which isn’t terribly expensive when considering some of the alternatives.

Best alternatives available in pill form

If you’re looking for something you can take in pill form vs. the Extenze liquid, I would recommend you check out either the original Extenze Plus or a supplement called Hardon Helper.

Extenze Plus uses many of the same ingredients that the shot does, but of course is in pill form.

hardon helper reviewHardon Helper uses a completely different set of ingredients, but is still VERY effective.

In fact, I would go so far as to say it actually it’s MORE effective than both the Extenze Shot AND the Extenze Plus.

Can I use this if I have a medical condition?

That really depends on what your medical condition is. If you have high blood pressure or heart problems I wouldn’t recommend it because of it’s caffeine and yohimbe content.

In fact, it’s been shown that yohimbe can cause as much as a 10 point increase in blood pressure. (Source)

We’ll talk more about that below.

Are there any side effects?

I didn’t notice any with Extenze liquid, but it’s certainly possible. There’s a wide variety of side effects that come with the consumption of yohimbe related products, including:

  • Hypertension
  • Headaches
  • Panic attacks
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Tachycardia
  • Increased Anxiety

Other Potential Warnings

The other principle ingredient in Extenze Liquid Shots, L-Arginine, has a tendency to lower blood pressure through a process called vasodilation.

Vasodilation is a fancy term for a widening of the blood vessels, which results from a relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls, leading to increased blood flow.

While this increased blood flow helps enhance erections, it also has the ability to cause a drop in blood pressure.

If you’re already taking medications that lower blood pressure, this may cause blood pressure to drop to unsafe levels (hypo tension).

With this in mind, if you have HBP issues I would recommend you steer clear of Extenze Liquid.

My Personal Results / Recommendation

extenze liquid shot reviewAs I stated earlier in the review, it had a been quite a long time since I tested out any male enhancement supplements, so I figured now might be a good time to try a few out again.

As for my personal results, the label states that you should drink a whole bottle of this stuff the first time around, but I like to be a little bit more conservative and I only drank just over a half the first time I used it.

I would say I started to feel the effects probably within about 15 or 20 minutes. It’s kind of tough to describe, but if I had to lay it out I would say it gives you a big burst of physical energy, as well as a tingle in your pants.

One thing is for sure, if you are sexual aroused in any way you’ll definitely be walking around with a boner for a couple hours unless you take care of it’ so to speak.

Compared to the regular pills that I’ve been taking, the liquid shot seems to kick in a bit quicker. With the pills it seems like it takes about 30 – 45 min. for it to kick in, and with this shot it’s more like 15 – 20 min or so to start seeing the real effects.

I would recommend that if you decide to try this out that you just start off with like a really low dose, maybe something in the order of 1/4 of the bottle.

Yohimbe has a tendency to creep up on you if you take too much of it, and while you may get a great boner, it could also make you feel really sick at the same time.

I still prefer the pills, but if you’re short on cash and want to try something quick and easy, Extenze Liquid shots might be worth your while.

Extenze shot

By Eddie,  Jan 16, 2018

I tried Extenze shot one hour prior to sex. It gave me a hard, engorged, veiny, boner.

So much blood flowed that girth gains were evident.
