Xantrin is a male enhancement cream said to make you to last longer in bed and have more satisfying sexual experiences. These promises seem a tall order for a small cream, so I investigated Xantrin’s effectiveness.

Does Xantrin Feature Effective Ingredients?

Here’s a quick look at the key ingredients:

Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa This compound is reportedly toxic if dosed incorrectly. Although it is often promoted as an aphrodisiac and beneficial for male enhancement, there is insufficient scientific research to support these claims. [1]

Butea Superba. This vegetable is traditionally used in Thailand to improve libido and boost male vitality. At least one study suggests there is some validity to this use. A 3-month randomized double-blind clinical trial was carried out on Thai males aged 30-70 years with erectile dysfunction. The study concluded the plant preparation improved erectile dysfunction without toxicity. [2]

However, I was unable to find the amount of butea superba used, so I don’t know what dose would be effective.

L-Tyrosine. Tyrosine is an amino acid and neurotransmitter which improves mood and enhances cell communication. However, it does not have a direct effect on improving male enhancement. [3]

DMEA (Dimethylaminoethanol). DMEA is a chemical involved in production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and is used to treat ADHD.[4]

Unfortunately, DMEA doesn’t have a direct effect on sexual performance.

Resveratrol. Resveratrol is an antioxidant which reduces cellular damage and promotes nitric oxide production and blood flow when taken in 250 to 500 mg doses. [4]Nitric oxide plays an important role in getting and maintaining erections.

Is Xantrin Hazardous?

I didn’t find any explicit warnings or see mention of any specific side effects from taking Xantrin. However, some ingredients such as tyrosine cause side effects when taken in conjunction with antidepressant, thyroid, and other medications.

Always consult your doctor before using a male enhancement supplement, especially if you are taking any medications.

Can You Trust the Xantrin Money-Back Guarantee?

If you order from Xantrin.com, your purchase is backed by a 60-day guarantee. However, restrictions are not listed on the website. I’m not sure if they accept opened bottles or if additional bottles must be unopened.

Should You Buy Xantrin?

Xantrin is a great alternative male enhancement supplement if you don’t like swallowing pills. It seems affordable, only $24.95 per bottle if you order in bulk, but you might want to wait until there are more customer reviews available before deciding if it’s a good buy.
