Male Enhancement

May be good, but it's too soon to tell

Magnum Instincts looks like a promising new product. Due to the lack of reviews and the high price, I don’t recommend it at this time, but stay on the lookout.

Magnum Instincts is supposed to “make you feel like a teenager again” by alleviating fatigue, improving physical endurance, and enhancing libido.

Can a natural supplement like Magnum Instincts really improve both sexual function and athletic performance, supposedly everything a man needs to feel young again?

Let’s look closer at Magnum Instincts.

Magnum Instincts Functions

Magnum Instincts claims to do the following:

• Reduce stress from performing under pressure
• Increase sexual desire
• Relieve fatigue
• Improve physical endurance
• Restore sexual function
• Produce better erections
• Stimulate testosterone production
• Enhance sperm quantity, quality, and motility

Magnum Instincts Ingredients

Magnum Instincts has some lofty goals. The only way to tell if they are possible is to look closer at individual ingredients.

Carnosyn Beta Alanine (170 mg)

Beta alanine is an amino acid and a precursor to carnosine, a substance concentrated in muscle tissue and touted to improve athletic performance. Carnosyn is a patented bio-friendly form of beta alanine.

Beta alanine doses in supplements are often found in 400 mg or 800 mg, and Magnum Instincts has just 170 mg. Yet too much can cause paraesthesia, a sensation of tingling, burning, and pricking of skin.

Cordyceps Sinensis (150 mg)

Cordyceps improved exercise capacity in rats [1] and may also function as an aphrodisiac. Fortunately, side effect risk is rare.

Water Extracted Epimedium (140 mg)

Epimedium has effectively treated erectile dysfunction in preliminary studies. It’s even conjectured to work better than prescription drugs, although this is unproven. Epimedium may cause upset stomach and dry mouth.

Maca Powder Extract (100 mg)

Commonly used as an aphrodisiac, maca has been touted in some clinical trials to improve semen quality and to boost libido. It may improve energy, mood, sexual desire, and sperm production and motility, but it doesn’t seem to raise testosterone.

L-Citrulline Malate

This amino acid enhances athletic performance by reducing muscle fatigue. In one study, CM supplementation was measured on eighteen men, where it reduced fatigue and increased ATP production during exercise. [2]

Lycium Barbarum (Goji Berry; 75 mg)

Goji berry may protect against bacteria, preventing certain diseases. Yet manufacturers often make undue claims about goji’s curing powers, which caused the FDA to speak out against certain distributors.

L-Lysine (50 mg)

Lysine is an amino acid that plays a role in calcium absorption, muscle protein building, injury recovery, and even hormone production. Side effects may include stomach pain and diarrhea.

Zinc Monomethionine (15 mg)

This is another name for ZMA, a common supplement in the athletic world, claimed to improve athletic performance and raise testosterone. However, studies don’t show results in athletic performance nor testosterone levels. [3] [4]

The zinc portion of ZMA may treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (prostate enlargement) and male infertility.

These ingredients show promising benefits. It’s encouraging that they are found in concentrated forms and that the ingredient amounts are disclosed.

What Do Customers Say about Magnum Instincts?

Unfortunately, customer reviews are lacking on this new product. Magnum recently requested that bodybuilders log about the product at, but results as yet are undetermined.

How to Use Magnum Instincts

Magnum Instincts has two uses:

1. For a night of increased pleasure, take 2 capsules with a warm glass of water at least 40 minutes before sexual activity.
2. For a testosterone/sexual vigor increase, take 2 capsules with a warm glass of water at least 40 minutes prior to sleep for ten days.

Magnum Instincts Pricing

• Two pack: $14.99
• Ten pack: $59.99

You can also purchase it at for the following prices:

• Two capsules: $12.99

In the case of the two-capsule pack, this is definitely a high price to pay for a product you can only use once. The same goes for a product you can only use five times.
