How Soon Does Enzyte Work?

By Garnet Greene

  • Overview

    Anyone with an email address knows that a major target for marketers these days is "male enhancement." The euphemism can refer to improving sexual stamina, potency, fertility and even the size of a man's member. One manufacturer who markets products in this area is Berkely Brands. Berkely Brands makes Enzyte, which is one of the best known products in the category. Does Enzyte work? If so, how quickly?
  • The Manufacturer's Claims

    Enzyte claims, according to its website, to provide "natural male enhancement" and "supports the strongest, most powerful erections possible to help you achieve peak sexual enhancement." The Website also states that: "these statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease." Essentially this implies that the company believes that its product provides a substantial benefit based on its anecdotal experience, but that it cannot state, due to FDA and Federal Trade Commission regulations, that its product is proven to be effective for everyone.
  • How Soon Does Enzyte Work?

    If Enzyte provides benefits to an individual, its active ingredients would appear to have both short-term and long-term benefits. Enzyte contains ingredients that are widely accepted to be useful for various health issues including ginseng, ginkgo biloba, pine bark, and L-arginine. Some of these ingredients are alleged to provide instant benefits and others to help repair damage and deficiencies in the body with ongoing use. Once again it must be stated that while these herbs, vitamins and amino acids have positive reputations, they have not undergone rigorous scientific testing to determine their ability to provide "natural male enhancement." In short, there is no proof that the product provides any benefit in the short or long run, and therefore no way to determine how soon it would work for an individual.

  • Buyer Beware

    Berkeley Brands, marketers of Enzyte, and its owners were convicted of conspiracy and fraud in connection with sales of dietary supplements on February 26, 2008. In a press release from the Department of Justice, Gregory A. Lockhart, U.S. attorney general for the Southern District of Ohio, states: "The jury found that the company and the individuals illegally made millions of dollars over a five-year period through a fraud scheme that sent thousands of customers dietary supplements they did not order, charged customers' credit cards without authorization, misrepresented their business activities to their customers and the merchant banks they worked with, and laundered the money through personal bank and investment accounts. The company's scheme involved false advertising which included made-up claims about size increases, fake customer satisfaction ratings, and fictitious doctors who the ads falsely claimed collaborated for 13 years to develop Enzyte, the company's leading male enhancement product. The false ads also contained representations about money-back guarantees that the company as a matter of practice would not honor. As part of the scheme, the conspirators placed many consumers who responded to free-trial solicitations on an automatic shipment program without the customer's authorization, knowledge, or consent. Berkeley would then send the product to the consumer and bill the consumer's credit card regularly. When customers called to cancel, the conspirators employed various means to delay or hinder any returns or cancellations from occurring."
  • Considerations

    Before purchasing Enzyte or any other supplement claiming to improve sexual enjoyment or performance, carefully research the supplement in question and the company that markets it. The effects of many supplements depend on the way they are processed and manufactured. Without proper handling, processing and packaging, herbs, vitamins and minerals can lose some or all of their potency. It's also a good idea to touch base with your doctor. Many seemingly harmless herbs and vitamins can cause harmful drug interactions or cause damage if taken in high doses.
