This might be a supplement aimed at over 30s, but it appears to have been put together by a bunch of under 15s. It's entirely focused on delivering you better sex. Read our review to discover if it manages that and if not, then where they went wrong.

Virectin Loaded Review

The first thing you might about Virectin Loaded is the slightly 80s color scheme on the bottle. Nothing wrong with that, it’s a T booster and the 80s was the golden – or bronze – age of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Except, for a T supplement, Virectin Loaded doesn’t seem all that interested in T. Not all of it anyway, only how it can help your libido.

Virectin Loaded

That is 100% what Virectin is geared towards, better performance in the bedroom. Even the official website isn’t short of … visual stimulation to put you in the mood. We’re promised better sex for all concerned with this product boasting:

  • Better libido
  • Harder erections
  • Enhanced sexual pleasure
  • Longer (lasting) erections
  • Increased physical stamina

Verectin clearly wants to be known for lots of sex rather than lots of muscle. It’s still Arnie, just more late-2000s era Arnie.

What’s great is Verectin has no proprietary blends. Every covering is stripped away. A full ingredients list with names and individual dosages, they let it all hang out right there on the label.

The Scores

The Scores
Ingredients
5/10

As an overall T booster – which is the thing that will help your sex drive the most after all, Virectin is patchy. A good dose of zinc is about the most direct T booster on offer.

But in the context of a glorified love potion, it has a lot of potentially useful stuff. Maca, Horny Goat Weed, Fenugreek, Velvet Bean, Ashwagandha, all of these have plenty to bring to any trouser party. But there are problems with most of them not having active dosages and adding things like Tribulus is still just a waste.

Price
4/10

If you’re starting to find any of this tempting, get ready for a financial cold shower. Verectin is up around the $50 mark. That’s not very far short of some of the best all round T boosters on the market.

If you’re going to part with that much cash, why not go for a product that is designed to deliver: better sex, more muscle, increased mood, stamina, the full package?

Trustworthiness
4/10

To start off on a positive note this product is made in the U.S and is GMP certified. And like we said, there are no proprietary blends used.

That’s about all the kudos we can squeeze out of this product however. The formula has below active dosages in many cases, the reviews are unconvincing and the price is too high. Not great.

Testimonials
4/10

This booster does have feedback on the official site, which we like because it’s usually more detailed than the retail site reviews. Except this time, it isn’t.

They’re just written paragraphs of glowing praise and seemingly random names, with no stats, photos or videos. Worst still the website Fake Spot estimates 60% of Verectin Loaded’s reviews can be classed as unreliable.

Company
5/10

Verectin Loaded is made by the company Gentopia Labs which has operated out of New York since 2005. In all that time they only seem to have produced Virectin Loaded and one other product, though for the life of us we can’t find it anywhere.

We’re told they use top level methods, personnel and equipment to make supplements for older guys. There’s not a lot of evidence for this save for a statement to this effect on the website. But we couldn’t find any major scandals to be though, so middling marks.

How Do I Take It?

Users take 1 serving of 3 caps a day.

Normally, we’d say this is terrible. There’s no way a single serve boosters can sustain whatever advantages they have all day with just 1 dose.

They would be far better splitting those 3 caps into a serving each and spreading them evenly, 4 hours apart. This would keep active ingredients topped up.

We say normally because, this product is designed for only for one thing. And if you’re doing that for more than 4 hours then you’re either lying or Sting.

Any Virectin Loaded Side Effects?

Saw Palmetto can cause stomach upsets in rare cases but allowing for individual allergies there shouldn’t be a problem.

Where Can I Get It?

You can get a month’s supply from Amazon.com for $57 and Amazon.co.uk for £59. (Though it’s my duty to inform you that if you buy from the official website, you’ll receive a free ‘pleasure ring’ as a gift.)

Ingredients – In Detail

zinc-thumbnail

Zinc

Zinc is great because it stimulates many building blocks for healthy  T. Luteinizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone and growth hormone all rely on a mineral which is hard to get enough of from diet.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16379570


Niacin

Better known as vitamin B3. Supposed to ‘get you harder and induce sex hormones.’ We don’t know about that but there are plenty general benefits including better heart health. Needs much higher dosages than Verectin offers however.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24806747


Selenium

According to Verectin this essential mineral promotes healthier sperm and puts you in the mood. Most of the evidence though is it just has anti-oxidant effects and possibly a reduced risk of prostate cancer.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22648711


L-Arginine

On the face of it L-Arginine is useful for increasing nitric oxide levels in the body, helping with energy and blood flow.

The only problem is it’s not typically absorbed well by the body when taken orally so you need high amounts to feel any benefits. Thanks to the wonders of proprietary blends we’ve no idea if there’s anywhere near enough here. Doubtful.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/98099


Tribulus Terrestris

Tribulus

This is a terrible choice for any booster. It’s T stimulating credentials have been utterly debunked. It may have some positive effects on libido however but will need more than even 500mg here,

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15994038


Oat Straw Powder

Billed as an aphrodisiac here, there’s not much evidence for that. An anti-inflammatory perhaps, anti-estrogen maybe, even some cognitive benefits, but just reputation downstairs.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/770271


Tongkat Ali / Eurycoma Longfolia

Eurycoma Longfolia

Tnis is an ingredient which in other T boosters we’d write off as a simple libido booster with not much help for T. But again, that’s the name of the game here so 200mg might be off use.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22125680


fenugreek-thumb

Fenugreek

Another decent choice, For T generally this time but an aphrodisiac too naturally. Besides putting you in the mood it can control blood sugar and regulate insulin allowing T production to run smoothly. Shame there’s just 100mg.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16379570


mucuna-pruriens-thumb

Velvet Bean

More like it. This stimulates the amino acid L-Dopa which promotes T and lowers the stress hormone cortisol. This leads to better mood. Possibly some advantages for sperm quality too.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7716783


Epimedium Herb Extract

If I tell you this is also called Horny Goat Weed you probably won’t be surprised. In the right amount it can help erections and sex drive and possibly also stimulate better erections. It’s a question of whether 100mg is enough.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20141584


Saw Palmetto

Saw Palmetto

Usually we give this choice credit for helping with prostate health, but Verectin’s not interested in that. Small studies show a boost to sexual function but longer term one’s aren’t so positive. Probably not enough here to make a difference.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23210402


Maca

Maca Root

Again, actually can help with libido but just 50mg is the only thing holding this back.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18801111


Ashwaganda

Ashwagandha

An adaptogen with aphrodisiac, stamina and potentially T boosting qualities. You’re going to need a lot more than is offered here though to see positive changes.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23439798


Cndium

Often used alongside horny goat weed this may help lead to stronger erections but it’s yet to be fully explored and we’ve only got 50mg in again.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16379570


Xaanthoparmelia Scabrosa

Relaxes arterial blood vessels, in theory improving blood flow. Three guesses where they hope that’s going. Not a lot of clinical research to back this up sadly.


Anything Missing?

From a complete T boosting standpoint, you name it. D-Aspartic Acid, vitamin D3 Magnesium, boron vitamin B6 …

Even from a sexy perspective though, where’s the red ginseng to get your fire burning even hotter?

Overall

I’ve got to confess to having a soft spot for Virectin Loaded. Okay so a soft anything is the last thing it’s supposed to give you, but still.

Would we recommend you buy it? Hell no, it’s an overpriced shambles, but you’ve got to admire its laser-like focus on between the sheets.  Verectin doesn’t care about the gym, unless your name is Jim and you’re a man over a certain age looking to get laid.

We can’t agree with that but we can respect it.
