Take 2 to 6 capsules one hour prior to sexual activity.
May help increase blood flow, thereby supporting the entire circulatory system. Provides powerful support for sexual health. May support male glandular function. Provides natural, drug free support. X Action Reloaded, Men’s Glandular. Age, stress and other factors can affect intimacy and put strain on an otherwise-healthy relationship. Men’s X Action Reloaded supports male sexual health and vitality, which can lead to greater intimacy and stronger relationships.
This formula contains a proprietary blend that offers support for male sexual health in three ways: ingredients support blood flow, sexual desire and prolonged sexual response. Erectile function is principally mediated by relaxation of smooth muscle and increased blood flow within the corpus cavernosum. Smooth muscle relaxation is caused by increased levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate cGMP. cGMP is triggered by the production of nitric oxide NO. Pomegranate, l arginine and epimedium leaf extract all produce the catalyst for NO, the enzyme nitric oxide synthase.
Once sexual response is achieved, the body releases an enzyme phosphodiesterase type V PDE-5. This enzyme reverses cGMP and causes the male sexual response to subside. A single icariin compound found in epimedium leaf extract has been shown to inhibit PDE-5, thus prolonging the sexual response.
This formula contains l arginine, damiana leaf, muira puama stem extract, oatstraw extract, saw palmetto fruit, epimedium leaf extract standardized for icariin content, maca root extract, pomegranate fruit extract, yohimbe root bark extract and DHEA.
NOTE: Consult a doctor if you have a known medical condition, in particular those affecting blood pressure, hormone sensitivity, heart, liver or kidney. Consult a doctor if you are taking any medication, in particular those affecting blood pressure, heart conditions, diabetes, depression or erectile dysfunction. Discontinue use if troubling symptoms occur. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Not for use by persons under the age of 18 and/or pregnant or lactating women.

Men’s X-Action Reloaded
According to epidemiological studies from around the world, problems related to sexual function, termed sexual dysfunction, affect 20-30% of men and 40-45% of women. Understandably, sexual dysfunction also negatively affects mood, well-being and intimate relationships. Sexual dysfunction is typically related to sexual desire in both men and women and erectile dysfunction in men. Pharmacological treatment for sexual dysfunction (e.g. oral drugs, hormonal therapy, etc.) is often accompanied by adverse side-effects, including dyspepsia (indigestion), headache, rhinitis (nasal inflammation) and even risk of cancer. However, encouraging evidence suggests that various herbal extracts may offer benefits in the treatment of sexual dysfunction. 1-3
Men’s X-Action Reloaded is a nutritional supplement designed to support sexual health and reproductive function. Men’s X-Action Reloaded contains herbs and nutrients that naturally help increase sex hormone levels, stimulate energy and libido, relieve anxiety and depression, and improve erectile function. Research suggests that many of the nutrients in Men’s X-Action Reloaded may also prove beneficial for female sexual function. Each capsule contains:
Icariin (from Epimedium sagittatum ) – Epimedium sagittatum , also known as Horny Goat Weed, has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for hundreds of years as an aphrodisiac and tonic for treating male impotence and erectile dysfunction. Epimedium contains the active constituent, icariin, which has been shown to improve erectile function in animal studies. Icariin stimulates production of an enzyme (endothelial nitric oxide synthase or eNOS) that promotes the formation of nitric oxide (NO). NO plays a critical role in initiating and maintaining penile erection. Icariin also helps prolong erectile function by inhibiting the action of an enzyme (phosphodiesterase-5 or PDE-5) that causes blood to leave the penis, which terminates an erection. Treatment with PDE-5 inhibitors has been proven effective in a majority of men with erectile dysfunction; however, PDE-5 inhibitors are not effective when NO levels are low. Since research shows that icariin both increases levels of NO and inhibits PDE-5 activity, icariin appears to be a promising therapeutic treatment for erectile dysfunction. In addition, icariin has been shown to increase circulating levels of testosterone in animal studies. Among other functions, testosterone plays an excitatory role in sexual desire and is, thus, necessary for healthy sexual function in men, as well as in women. For example, testosterone has been shown to provide greater benefits than placebo on all female sexual parameters (e.g. sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, pleasure and satisfaction). Testosterone also significantly improved diminished libido in postmenopausal women. Thus, icariin may enhance the reproductive health of both sexes. Furthermore, icariin has demonstrated antiosteoporotic (bone protective) effects comparable to estrogen in animal studies and may be helpful for preventing postmenopausal bone loss. 4-23
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands that acts as a precursor for all other steroid hormones in the body, including sex hormones (e.g. estrogen, progesterone, testosterone). Studies suggest that DHEA may have a greater influence on sexual function in men than previously thought. However, plasma DHEA levels decrease approximately 80% between the ages of 25 and 75. Low-dose DHEA supplementation in healthy middle-aged and elderly men has been shown to raise and help maintain serum sex steroid hormone concentrations at levels equivalent to that seen in younger men. In addition, research confirms that DHEA plays a vital role in the aging process and age-related deterioration. In fact, DHEA levels may correlate with longevity in men. Population studies have shown a correlation between increased DHEA levels and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in men. DHEA supplementation has also been shown to improve glucose tolerance and reduce plasma triglycerides in elderly men. Furthermore, DHEA has been shown to increase testosterone levels, improve glucose tolerance, and may help increase bone mineral density in elderly women. DHEA has an excellent safety profile, with no serious adverse events related to DHEA reported by the FDA or in the global medical literature. 24-32
Arginine is an amino acid involved in nitric oxide (NO) production. NO is a critical component of numerous functions related to cardiovascular health. NO also facilitates blood flow to the penis and plays a vital part in initiating and maintaining penile erection. Studies suggest that arginine supplementation improves erectile dysfunction and sexual performance in some men. Combining arginine with yohimbine, the active ingredient derived from yohimbe, has been shown to significantly improve erectile function over either substance alone. The combination of arginine and yohimbine has also been shown to improve symptoms of female sexual arousal disorder in postmenopausal women. In addition, arginine has been shown to increase sperm count and improve sperm motility in infertile men. 11,33-37
Damiana is a tonic and restorative herb for the nervous system, as well as a mild antidepressant that also provides anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) properties. Damiana has been given to people suffering from anxiety, mild to moderate depression, fatigue and nervous exhaustion. Its stimulating and restorative properties make it valuable when anxiety and depression occur together, as often happens after long-term stress. However, damiana may be best-known for its reputation as an aphrodisiac. Damiana has traditionally been used to treat sexual disorders such as male impotence and frigidity in women. According to traditional Chinese medicine, damiana is a yang tonic used to strengthen the body’s energy and vitality, including sexual energy. Animal and human studies support the use of damiana as an aphrodisiac and results suggest that damiana may provide therapeutic benefits for treating sexual dysfunction. 6,24,35,38-44
Muira puama , also known as “potency wood,” is a traditional folk medicine used in the Brazilian Amazon as an antidepressant and nervous system tonic for the treatment of chronic stress and degenerative diseases of the nervous system. Research has confirmed muira puama’s antidepressant and neuroprotective properties, as well as its ability to prevent stress-induced hyperactivity. In addition, muira puama has been used to enhance libido and combat the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. Animal studies have shown that muira puama extract relaxes the penile corpus cavernosum, thus facilitating erection. Although peer-reviewed human trials are needed, a preliminary study published in The American Journal of Natural Medicine found that muira puama produced significant results in 62% of participants suffering from lack of sex drive, while 51% diagnosed with inability to attain or maintain erection experienced positive results. Furthermore, muira puama, combined with Ginkgo biloba, was found to significantly improve libido and sexual activity in healthy women with reportedly low sex drive. 24,45-51
Saw palmetto has been used throughout Europe as a therapeutic remedy for men with urinary dysfunction resulting from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH is characterized by a progressive swelling of the prostate, which causes bothersome symptoms of the lower urinary tract such as painful and/or frequent urination, especially at night. BPH is a common disorder affecting more than 50% of men by the age of 60. Human studies have confirmed that saw palmetto is an effective and safe alternative to traditional drug treatment for the management of BPH symptoms. Saw palmetto has been shown to reduce urinary obstruction and improve symptoms of urinary dysfunction in patients with BPH and overactive bladder. Saw palmetto has also been shown to improve quality of life and sexual function, as demonstrated by statistically significant increases in scores on the IIEF (International Index of Erectile Function), a diagnostic evaluation used in clinical trials of erectile dysfunction. 6,24,52-56
Maca has been used for centuries in the Peruvian Andes as an aphrodisiac to improve sexual function and enhance fertility. Maca has also been used for menstrual disorders and menopausal symptoms and to increase energy and stamina, improve memory and mental clarity, and reduce stress. Clinical trials suggest that maca improves sexual desire, energy and mood (i.e. relieves anxiety and depression), and may be effective for sexual dysfunction in men with erectile dysfunction and postmenopausal women. In addition, maca has been shown to enhance libido and improve endurance performance in male athletes. Furthermore, maca has demonstrated significant effects on increasing sperm count and mobility. 1,6,57-64
Pomegranate is a rich source of antioxidant compounds, demonstrating 2 to 3 times the antioxidant capacity of both green tea and red wine. Pomegranate has been studied for its potential therapeutic properties in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Pomegranate has been shown to significantly increase nitric oxide levels, as well as increase penile blood flow and improve erectile response in animal studies. In addition, a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind pilot study found that pomegranate was more likely than placebo to improve erections in men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction. 65-69
Yohimbe , a tree native to the tropical rain forest of West Africa, has been used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction and as an aphrodisiac. Yohimbe reportedly increases energy and sexual arousal and improves erection strength. Research has identified yohimbine as the primary active ingredient in yohimbe. Yohimbine affects the central and peripheral nervous system and improves penile blood flow and erection endurance. A meta-analysis of double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trials found that yohimbine significantly improved symptoms of erectile dysfunction and would be an effective therapeutic treatment option. Side effects from yohimbe are considered minimal, although potential problems such as anxiety, abdominal discomfort, dizziness, headache, skin flushing, weakness, and increased blood pressure and heart rate can occur. Yohimbe is a short-term MAO inhibitor and is not recommended for use in conjunction with SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), tricyclic antidepressants, tyramine-containing foods (e.g. cheese, wine, liver) or over-the-counter stimulants found in diet aids and nasal decongestants. Individuals with high blood pressure, gastric (stomach) or duodenal ulcers, psychological disorders, and heart, liver or kidney problems, as well as pregnant or breast-feeding women, should consult a healthcare practitioner before using this product. 24,35,52,70-76
Oatstraw is recommended for general debility and convalescence and to strengthen a weakened constitution. Oatstraw offers mild antidepressant effects, gently increases energy levels and acts as a restorative nerve tonic for nervous exhaustion and other nervous conditions. Clinical studies show oatstraw also stimulates immune function and may enhance cognitive (mental) performance. In addition, animal research has shown that oatstraw contains a substance that provides luteinizing hormone-releasing activity. Luteinizing hormone stimulates the release of testosterone, the primary sex hormone in men and women. Thus, oatstraw may provide mild aphrodisiac-like properties. 6,35,40,52, 77-79
