Powermax is a new nutritional supplement targeted towards men. The supplement promises to increase your virility and sexual performance. Here’s our review.
What is Powermax?
Powermax is a male enhancement supplement that promises to increase the size, intensify your orgasm, boost your stamina, and make it easier to gain and maintain an erection.
The supplement is exclusively available online through a clinical trial. You don’t need a prescription. The supplement’s trial is priced at $4.95, although the full retail price is $119.93 (you’re required to pay this price after your 12 day trial period is complete).
Typically, male enhancement supplements like Viagra use synthetic chemicals like sildenafil, while Cialis uses a formula called tadalafil, both of which widen your blood vessels and make it easier to maintain an erection.
Instead of using chemical formulas, Powermax uses herbal extracts. You don’t need a prescription to use these herbal extracts, and they purportedly offer similar benefits when it comes to widening your blood vessels. Key herbal extracts used in Powermax include tongkat ali, saw palmetto, and panax ginseng – all of which are ingredients we’ve seen in other male enhancement supplements.
So how does Powermax work? Let’s take a closer look.
How Does Powermax Work?
Powermax has included 8 active ingredients. Each ingredient claims to work in the same way: it widens your blood vessels. Some of the ingredients work by raising nitric oxide levels. Nitric oxide, or NO, is a chemical compound often used by bodybuilders to enhance vascularity.
Powermax claims to be made from “all natural herbs”. That appears to be true aside from one ingredient, L- Arginine, which is a synthetically-derived amino acid.
The key ingredients in Powermax include all of the following: Epimedium, Lepidium Meyeni, Macuna Gigantea, Polypodium Vulgare, Panax Ginseng, Saw Palmetto, Tongkat Ali, and L-Arginine.
The dosage for these ingredients is not listed, so we have no idea how strong or weak the formula may be. For all we know, the formula only contains trace amounts of all of the above ingredients.
However, to put dosage into perspective, L-Arginine (which is just one ingredient in the formula) is typically taken in doses of 2 to 8 grams per day. A large nutritional supplement tablet will contain about 1g of formula in total – so it seems unlikely that Powermax comes anywhere close to the recommended amount.
In any case, without ingredient information listed, weave nothing to show that Powermax actually works as advertised.
Oddly enough, Powermax doesn’t just claim to make it easier to get an erection: it claims to actually make you larger:
“Powermax may not only increase your stamina in bed…it may also increase the size of your male member over time.”
There’s no evidence to support that, and Powermax doesn’t even cite a scientific study to back up this bogus claim. Remember: male enlargement is basically one big myth (without surgery), and it’s always suspicious when a supplement makes this claim.
Powermax has a pricing policy that many people have labeled as a scam. That pricing policy advertises a “free” trial where you only pay for shipping and handling. However, the fine print of the terms and conditions explains that you still have to pay the full retail price on your trial – you just don’t pay it today. Here’s how the pricing policy breaks down:
— You pay $4.95 today for the trial’s shipping and handling
— You have 12 calendar days in your trial period. On the 13th day after you order, your credit card will be automatically charged $119.93 for the trial bottle you already received.
— At the same time, you’re automatically subscribed to the company’s autoship program, which mails you a shipment of Powermax every month at a price of $119.93 + $9.97 shipping.
— You will continue being charged that price every month for the rest of your life until you cancel, until you die, or until your credit card is maxed out (whatever comes first)
Paying $130 for a small bottle of a nutritional supplement is an extremely high price. In fact, Powermax may be the most expensive male enhancement product we’ve seen on the market.
Another problem with this trial is that it takes 3 to 5 business days to receive the product in the mail, while you only have 12 calendar days to cancel your trial. So in reality, you may only have 3 to 4 days to test your product before being charged the full $120 fee.
All purchases come with a 30 day money back guarantee. You can also contact the company within the first 12 days of ordering your trial to cancel your trial, in which case you return the supplement and avoid the $119.93 fee.

Should You Use Powermax to Boost your Sex Drive?
Powermax is a male enhancement supplement that has crammed together a bunch of different herbal ingredients into one convenient supplement. Most of the ingredients have been used in traditional medicine to boost virility, but none of the ingredients are backed up by any modern scientific testing or evidence.
Making things look worse for Powermax is that each ingredient comes with an unlisted dosage: so we don’t know the strength of any of these ingredients. So even if they were backed up by modern scientific testing or evidence, we wouldn’t be able to compare these effects to what we know about Powermax.
On top of all of these problems, the manufacturer of Powermax still charges $130 for a one month supply of the supplement, which is extremely overpriced compared to similar herbal male enhancement supplements we’ve seen on the market.
For all of these reasons, it seems unlikely that Powermax will have a significant impact on your sex drive or sexual ability.
