Mojo Risen is a male enhancement supplement of the “Viagra alternative” variety.
This means that instead of taking it as an every day supplement, you only need to take Mojo Risen at those times when you need a performance boost.
Taken 30 minutes before sexual activity, you should experience a libido boost and erectile support.
The website is quite hyped and pretty unprofessional.
It cites a 95% satisfaction rate, but doesn’t go on to explain where that number comes from.
It’s always troubling to me when I have difficulty understanding entire portions of the website because the English is so poor.
Among the oddly translated, unsupported claims regarding the ingredients, it stood out to me that Polyrhachis Vicina Roger “causes to powerful, stiff and coarse penis!”
Already, we aren’t off to a great start.
Mojo Risen Ingredients and How They Work
Mojo Risen claims to employ three key components that make their product better than the rest.
First, they follow the example of the ancient Chinese herbalists by using the whole herb, instead of just isolated extracts.
Second, they use only herbs grown in unspoiled, pristine regions of the world.
Third, they use herbs harvested at the precise time necessary to maximize their effectiveness.
Highlights of the Mojo Risen formula are:
- Polyrhachis Vicina Roger – An edible species of black ant that has a long history of use in Chinese medicine for a variety of purposes.
Recent research has shown that it is very nutritious and may even have some cancer-fighting potential.
As far as claims regarding it’s ability to improve male sexual performance, however, there is no evidence.
- Deer Antler Velvet – Purported to increase testosterone production by giving you a solid dose of Insulin-like Growth Factor 1, this is another classic feature of Chinese medicine.
And in animal studies, it has shown potential in increasing bones density as well as immune health. Unfortunately, the exact levels of IGF-1 found in the velvet is unpredictable. One 2003 study, measured Deer Antler Velvet’s effects on testosterone, IGF-1 and several other factors, finding that there was no change.
- Rhizoma Polygona – It took some digging to figure out exactly what this herb was, since nothing came up for that name and I had never heard of it.
From the best research I can find, it refers to Polygonum cuspidatum or Knotweed.
While knotweed appears to be a rich source of resveratrol, a potent antioxidant, I could find no research to support it’s use as a male enhancement.
- Cordyceps Sinesis – This mushroom does appear to have some potential to increase testosterone production and, by extension sex drive.
The research is mixed, though, and the mechanism at work is not fully understood.
- Angelica – In general, this is a very healthful herb that is being studied for it’s immune-boosting and cancer-fighting benefits.
It’s interesting that it would be in a product marketed as a male enhancement, though, since it is traditionally considered a “woman’s herb” and is usually prescribed to improve gynecological health. There is nothing to suggest it’s beneficial for men.
- Cayenne Pepper – While capsaicin, the molecule that makes hot peppers hot, has been shown to increase blood flow and improve mood, it has no proven sexual health benefits.
Of course, this doesn’t change that fact that many cultures around the world have long believed that spicy food is an aphrodisiac.
As is often the case with traditional remedies, it seems as though many of these ingredients simply have a psychological connection with sex – rather than a scientific one.
For example, the male deer is often seen as a simple of strength and virility.
Similar links can be seen with the ant – which is an unusually strong species – as well.
Spicy food, like the cayenne pepper, got it’s reputation the same way – by causing people to sweat and releasing a spike of endorphins.
Looking at the research, though, only cordyceps has any real potential in this application.
According to the company, you should take 1 capsule on an empty stomach 30 to 60 minutes prior to sexual activity.
The effects can last up to 2 days, and you are advised not to take more than 2 capsules in a 24 hour period.
In simply looking over the ingredients on the label, however, this didn’t make sense.
After all, the vast majority of these ingredients have no proven benefits for sexual health.
And then we found several FDA warnings on Mojo Risen. Suddenly, everything came together.
In 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a warning stating the following: FDA laboratory analysis confirmed that “Mojo Risen” contains noracetildenafil.
Noracetildenafil is structurally similar to sildenafil, the active the active ingredient in Viagra, an FDA-approved prescription drug for erectile dysfunction (ED).
Because of the potential dangers of unknowingly taking prescription medication, the FDA instructed everyone to immediately discontinue use and throw away any pills they may already have..
Not surprisingly, in March of 2014, the FDA announced that Mojo Risen was being recalled after independent testing found that it contained “sildenafil and tadalafil—FDA-approved pharmaceutical ingredients used to treat erectile dysfunction.” Notice that this is two new prescription drugs – the first was noracetildenafil.
Specifically, the concern is that users could suffer dangerously low blood pressure and the resulting complications.
This is especially a danger if you are taking nitrates from diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease.
As far as I could find, there were no reported cases of men being seriously harmed from taking Mojo Risen, though.
It’s not really a shock, then, that customers claim that Mojo Risen works – Viagra works great, too.
Mojo Risen Pros and Cons
Advantages of Mojo Risen
- No commitment is required.
- Several Mojo Risen reviews from customers indicate that it can be effective.
- There is a 60 day money back guarantee.
- There is an autoship program available, though no automatic enrollment seems to occur.
- Mojo Risen reviews on Amazon skew to the positive.
Disadvantages of Mojo Risen
- Some reviewers mention minor side effects like headache and stuffy nose.
- The website is over-hyped, causing it to lack credibility.
- The ingredients are mainly unproven traditional remedies.
- The FDA has official issued one warning and a recall after finding that the supplement contained three prescription medications related to the active ingredient in Viagra.
Where to Buy
Mojo Risen is available online. You can buy it through the Mojo Risen website or through Amazon.
With a small order, you’ll pay about $5 per dose on the website, and the per dose price decreases when you buy more.The 10 pill pack sells on Amazon for $38.95 so this may be the best way to go.
It may be increasingly difficult to find, though, thanks to the recent recall.However, the FDA was careful to note that the recall was “voluntary” so it’s possible that some supplies are still out there.
My Personal Results
Well, since you already know that Mojo Risen contains a derivative of sildenafil, you can only imagine how my personal results were. I got a pretty raging hardon, which kicked in about 45 minutes after popping the pill. This lasted for a few hours, however, the side effects were those similar to the ones you would get with Viagra. I developed a slight headache, and had sinus pressure that didn’t seem to go away for a couple of hours.
Viagra works….so does Mojo Risen….and I think the only reason it works is because it contains the same ingredients as Viagra haha.
We don’t find any particularly compelling reason to recommend Mojo Risen, but several to suggest you look elsewhere.
Not only are the ingredients dubious traditional remedies with little or no scientific backing, Mojo Risen contains three separate prescription erectile dysfunction medications.
While this pretty much guarantees that the supplement will work, it also greatly increases the risk of taking it and rips apart the claims of Mojo Risen being “100% natural and authentic.”
Based on these findings, it’s also natural to wonder if there are any other “secret ingredients” in Mojo Risen. Unfortunately, this is not an unusual practice – particularly with male enhancement supplements made in China.
As a general recommendation, then, be careful where you chose to by this type of supplement from and do thorough research.
Even if you ignore the secret inclusion of those ED drugs, the ingredients are severely lacking.
L-Arginine is absent from the ingredients list.
We usually like to see it in a Viagra alternative supplement to increase blood flow.
I guess the noracetildenafil, sildenafil and tadalafil do enough that the manufacturers decided to play it safe and exclude arginine.
Overall, there are much better and safer natural Viagra alternatives out there.
Not only is Mojo Risen expensive, it’s potentially dangerous and made by an unscrupulous company who blatantly lied about the ingredients.

Does Mojo Risen work? -Gasman
It does, but that's because it basically contains the active ingredient in Viagra. So it works like Viagra, including the side effects like headaches, blurry vision, and sinus pressure.- Rob

Does the enlargenexx really work because I've been thinking about buying some to get a bigger penis. Would my penis actually grow? -jerry
Unfortunately, no. A pill can't give you permanent penis growth. Supplements help you get a bigger erection, but not a bigger penis. For that, you'll want to check out a water based pump like Bathmate or an extender device like the Phallosan Forte. Here are my full reviews: Bathmate Phallosan Forte - Rob
Dear sir, I found a paper on Mojo Risen by chance on the internet. To be quite frank,the review was not really in favour of the product. Still it is said to contains same ingredients as Viagra plus probably some of your own. It is also said to be very expensive. Still,i am interested. Could you be more explicit? Can you ship to the Philippines and at what cost? -eric delorme
SupplementCritique.com is a review website. We don't have any affiliation with Mojo Risen, but I do know it's been recalled by the FDA because it contains undisclosed prescription medication. You'll have to find a retailer (if there's any still available) to see if they'll ship to the Phillipines for you.- Rob
