My EPG ARIMEZOME 50 PCT Testosterone Booster Review
This product is considered as both a testosterone booster or to be used as a post cycle therapy once you have finished a course of steroids.
As such , it should be developed to help with organ health which can be affected by the toxicity of steroids, especially if they are taken orally.
I have suffered from the aftermath of taking steroids and it is a little unnerving.
You can read more about my experience, here.
So, essentially a PCT is there to help kick start your own natural testosterone production again and help protect the organs such as the liver and kidneys.
It can also help towards increasing your sex drive/libido, too.
If you are just lifting weights and want the benefits of more testosterone, of which there are many benefits, you may wish to take a natural testosterone booster which will help your body stimulate more testosterone production.
More testosterone means more lean muscle, more strength, less body fat and even healthier bones let alone an improved mood.
I normally take TestoFuel which has seen me make some great gains, not to mention sending my sex drive through the roof after I had finished my cycle of prohormones ages ago.
Arimistane (Androst 3,5-dien-7, 17-dione) – Theoretically may be able to increase testosterone levels.
However, as no human or animal interventions have been conducted with Androsta-3,5-diene-7,17-dione we don’t actually know.
Grape Seed Extract (Vitis Vinifera) – Grapes, or the chemicals within them, especially oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs), have been touted as powerful antioxidants yet in humans there is a real lack of clear evidence that there are any real benefits.
L-Dopa (Macuna Pruriens) – This is actually good for treating people with Parkinsons. There’s a mixed bag of results for testosterone but look mainly positive.
Results have shown an increase in testosterone levels in infertile men, however, results are very limited for fertile men.
It is effective to reduce cortisol levels – high stress levels can harm testosterone production.
Horny Goat Weed – Epimedium, the suspected active component of horny goat weed, appears to act as a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, similar to some drugs used for erectile dysfunction.
It does not, however, stimulate testosterone production.
Avena Sativa (Oat) – This is a type of oat that has been seen to raise luteinzing hormones in the body, which are a precursor to testosterone and growth hormone.
Not a great deal of real, heavy evidence if anything at all but the hallmarks of something good are there. A bit of a gamble. In plenty of T-Boosters that do not work.
Bulbine Natalensis – A herb from Africa, this increases testosterone, however, it is also as toxic as a steroid cycle. 50mg per 1kg or 2.2lbs of body weight needs to be taken to be effective.
That means at approximately 92kg/202lbs I would need 4600mg per day.
Longjack (Eurycoma Longifolia, TongKat Ali) – Is a pro-fertility agent and aphrodisiac that appears to have a large body of evidence supporting this role and some evidence suggesting it may be an anti-estrogen and pro-erectile agent.
Although there’s some research to suggest it may increase testosterone levels in animals and humans it is pretty lackluster which doesn’t bode too well.
Carduus Mar (Milk Thistle) – A great ingredient used to flush out and protect the liver as well as help repair cells but more required for anyone doing a course or Prohormones or oral anabolic steroids.
NAC (N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine) – Great for people with liver, heart and kidney problems but no evidence for boosting testosterone.
Epiandrosterone – 3b-hydroxy-etioallocholan-17-one –
This is a dehydroepiandrosterone metabolite and a precursor of testosterone and estradiol with hypolipidemic and anabolic property.
It is classed as a prohormone and may or may not be legal in your area. By all accounts it is not very effective.
The label instructs us to have up to 2 tablets per day.
It is recommended that we have at least 4 tablets spread evenly across the day, as per the best testosterone booster on the market.
When you have more doses throughout the day it ensures your body always has nutrients to work with.
Additionally, if your body receives an overload of ingredients at once, it will not utilize anything it doesn’t require at the time which can lead to waste.
Each daily serving equates to 1300mg which is not the worst we have seen.
This is less than what we find in effective testosterone boosters such as Prime Male.
Effects & Benefits:
L-Dopa can reduce levels of stress and too much stress prevents testosterone levels from increasing.
If you are an infertile male this can actually increase testosterone levels too.
Bulbine will increase testosterone levels at the right dosage, but it is dependent on your body weight and it is also as toxic as taking steroids.
Milk thistle is great to flush out the liver of any toxins.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine seems to be an effective ingredient for people who have heart, liver and kidney issues.
So if you have them, great. If you also have liver, kidney and heart issues I am not sure you should be taking steroids or lifting heavy weights.
This is a proprietary blend.
There’s no scientific proof that Armistane can increase testosterone levels. In fact there’s very little studies surrounding it at all.
Then, while L-Dopa can reduce stress which will prevent testosterone from flourishing, it will only actually increase testosterone levels if you are infertile.
Infertile men only account for approximately 12% of the global male population, and that is a generous estimate given by the World Health Authority.
Grape seed is lacking any hard evidence that it has any real world benefit in humans.
Horny Goat Weed, Longjack and Avena Sativa do not have any scientific proof that they can increase testosterone levels.
Epiandrosterone is not particularly effective and could well be illegal depending on the region that you live in and local laws.
If this is touted at all as a post cycle therapy it is not ideal to have a toxic ingredient and a prohormone included which can also be toxic.
$59.95 is a lot of money for this level of performance.
My EPG ARIMEZOME 50 PCT Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
If this is a post cycle therapy it is actually causing a bit of a problem with at least one liver toxic ingredient.
As a testosterone booster this does not offer any reliable ingredients.
It can help with flushing out the liver once your steroid cycle has finished but you can buy milk thistle for very little money and in higher doses.
Then if you do have any organ issues the N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine can help with that, but otherwise, this is lacking in anything particularly useful or effective.
That is not a good result when you consider testosterone boosters such as TestoFuel which I use offer over 8 proven ingredients with adequate and effective doses.
