About ERX Pro
Using a pro-sexual blend of herbal extracts and active botanicals, ERX Pro is a male enhancement system that promises to increase free testosterone and nitric oxide levels, resulting in bigger, longer-lasting erections, a surge in sex drive and energy, and increased sexual confidence.
Specifically, the website tells us that you can expect to enhance the size, function, and performance of your penis; last five times longer, and intensify your (and your partner’s) orgasms, which is why they prominently refer to the supplement as ‘medical strength male enhancement.’
But despite all of these benefits, we’re told that ERX Pro is completely safe to use and free from any harmful side effects.
Have you suddenly stumbled into some kind of sexual utopia? One where all-natural compounds can deliver the perfect penis proportions, while turning you into an animal in the sack? Furthermore, is this solution really clinically proven and doctor recommended?
Before placing an order for ERX Pro, read through this brief article so that you can make the most informed purchase possible.
Erection, Testosterone, Nitric Oxide, & Male Enhancement Basics
Before diving into the clinical evidence behind ERX Pro's formula, let's quickly unpack a couple of key concepts discussed on their website.
How Do Erections Work?
As mentioned on the ERX Pro website, the penis contains two parallel chambers called the corpora cavernosa that are filled with sponge-like tissue. When appropriately stimulated, the brain sends a signal that causes these chambers to fill with blood, which then results in the penis growing in length and girth.
Then, once the stimulus abates, the corpora cavernosa releases the blood, thereby causing the penis to become flaccid and return to its previous state.
The Mayo Clinic reports that If anything goes wrong during this complex mental, physical, and emotional process, it can make it difficult to achieve or sustain an erection firm enough for intercourse. If this occurs on a regular basis, it’s called erectile dysfunction (ED).
What Role Does Nitric Oxide (NO) Play?
Speaking of blood flow, a chemical that’s thought to play a key role in vasodilation (widening of the arteries) is nitric oxide. In fact, it’s this chemical that prescription medications like Viagra increase in the body in order to help men overcome conditions like ED.
What’s Up With Testosterone?
Testosterone is a hormone that delivers masculine characteristics like body hair, a deep voice, increased penis and testes size, and muscle size and strength.
After about the age of 30, men start losing about one percent of their testosterone per year, which can eventually lead to side effects like reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, sleeping and emotional changes, muscle loss, and increased fat retention.
Alright, with these fundamentals in mind, let’s apply them to ERX Pro’s ingredients.
What Ingredients Will You Find in ERX Pro?
Important: No label was displayed on the ERX Pro website, nor any dosages. We attempted calling the listed phone number to learn more, but only received a busy signal. As a result, we emailed customer support but hadn’t received a response as of publishing.
Nonetheless, the website indicates that the formula contains the following ingredients:
- Muira Puama Extract
- Asian Red Ginger Extract
- Saw Palmetto Berry
- Ginkgo Biloba Extract
- Horny Goat Weed Extract
Based on the cumulative clinical evidence currently available, sites like the Natural Medicines Database, Examine.com, and WebMD report that taking 5 grams of l-arginine by mouth daily seems to improve sexual function in men with erectile dysfunction (ED), since it seems to boost nitric oxide production.
However, it appears that lower doses might not deliver the same benefit.
Outside of this, though, they report there’s insufficient clinical evidence that any of ERX Pro’s remaining ingredients will deliver on the manufacturer’s claims.
Are There Potential Side Effects When It Comes to ERX Pro’s Ingredients?
These same sites report that in most instances, if you experience any side effects from these ingredients, it likely won’t be worse than mild, temporary digestive upset (no specific dosages or other circumstances noted).
However, they point out that in less common instances (again, no specifics), l-arginine can lead to additional side effects like “blood abnormalities, allergies, airway inflammation, worsening of asthma, and low blood pressure.”
Furthermore, they emphasize that not enough is known about muira puama to understand if it’s safe or what side effects might be.
Combined, whether you’re thinking about ERX Pro or another testosterone booster, this is why it’s important to speak with your doctor before taking a new dietary supplement.
How Much Does ERX Pro Cost?
ERX Pro is only available directly through the manufacturer, and only through a trial offer.
Here, you’ll start by paying a $4.95 S&H fee to receive a full-size bottle of the supplement. 14 days after placing your order, you’ll be charged the full price of $93.99, plus tax where applicable.
Furthermore, you’ll continue receiving a new bottle of ERX Pro once per month and charged $93.99 plus tax until you contact customer support to cancel.
Outside of this trial, the terms also stipulate that “all sales are final and no returns will be accepted for a refund. All monthly recurring shipments must be canceled prior to billing date. Once monthly recurring has been billed, all sales are final and no returns will be accepted for refund."
The number listed on their site is (877) 756-6036, although as mentioned earlier, we only received a busy tone after dialing. We also sent an email to email@example.com, although we’re still awaiting a response to our inquiry.
Important Factors to Consider When Researching Testosterone Supplements Like ERX Pro
Let’s get right to the point: According to the Cleveland Clinic in our Do Testosterone Booster Supplements Work article, "There are currently no pills available in the United States that provide adequate levels of [testosterone] hormone replacement." As such (again), you should speak with your doctor if you're experiencing side effects consistent with low T.
Despite this, as well as what we learned earlier from sites like the Natural Medicines Database regarding the lack of overall clinical support for many of the ingredients found in these types of products, there are thousands of testosterone boosters competing for the same customers as ERX Pro, often ranging in price from less than $20 to well over $100.
Furthermore, many of them utilize the exact same website template as the product in question, many of which we’ve written about in the past. These include Endovex, Zytek XL, and Invigorate RX, to name just a few examples.
In fact, other than the URL and the supplement name, these sites are identical—even down to the typos they include (see image below).
In this screenshot taken from the ERX Pro website, we can see that it features the same typo (red circle) as dozens—perhaps hundreds—of other testosterone booster supplements utilizing an identical design template.
Given these similar site designs and wide price ranges, how can you possibly choose which company to do business with?
In How to Safely Buy Supplements Online, we discuss that many manufacturers—testosterone boosters or otherwise—frequently use a variety of marketing tricks to get you to buy, typically by appealing to your emotions instead of your intellect. These typically involve:
- "Heavy use of explosive terms & phrases like “revolutionary clinically-proven supplement” and “remember EVERYTHING”
- “Security” badges to help establish a sense of trust
- List of larger news outlets to establish credibility
- Availability warning banner across the top of the page stating that “due to extremely high media demand, there is limited supply in stock...” which contributes to a sense of urgency
- Large, prominent buttons promoting a “risk-free trial”
- Dramatic, heavily stylized imagery meant to convey a sense of enhanced intelligence or happiness"
In the case of ERX Pro, we can see that their website ticks every one of these boxes. To help avoid falling prey to these tactics, we emphasize in the article that you should always focus on the formula, as well as learn what customers are saying about the supplement and the manufacturer.
Does all of this bode well for ERX Pro?
Our Final Thoughts About ERX Pro
We might sound like a broken record at this point, but—again—sites like Examine.com, WebMD, and the Natural Medicines Database indicate that other than l-arginine, none of the ingredients in ERX Pro have sufficient clinical evidence indicating that they'll live up to the manufacturer's marketing claims.
And even in the case of l-arginine, there’s no label provided on the website, so we can’t be sure that the formula contains the same dosage found in supporting clinical studies. Be sure to bookmark this page though, as we emailed for more details and will update as soon as a response is received.
On top of this, the customer service phone number listed on ERX Pro’s website only resulted in a dial tone at the time of our research, and the company’s primary website only includes an image of the ERX supplement and the same contact information.
On this same note, we didn’t encounter any additional information about the company on third-party sites during our research, so you’re essentially purchasing an unknown supplement from an equally unknown manufacturer.
Next, ERX Pro is only available through a trial, about which the company provides zero details on their website, other than what’s buried deep inside their terms and conditions. The supplement also comes with an extraordinarily high price, and outside of the initial trial, refunds are not accepted.
Pulling all of this together, as consumers ourselves, we think there's a lot of risk to your money when it comes to ERX Pro. As such, be sure to have an in-depth conversation with your doctor about whether or not the supplement's formula warrants accepting this risk and placing an order.
