NutriSuppz ULTRA TEST Testosterone Booster Review
NutriSuppz ULTRA TEST Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
Considering I am suffering from a bout of low test due to not really taking a PCT (post cycle therapy) after ending my cycle of Epistane early due to not feeling particularly well when using it I have started to use a number of supplements combined.
This is just to see how I fair and see if it really is a pain in the ass.
Normally I would just take one excellent performing testosterone booster such as Prime Male which contains all of the ingredients required to stimulate more natural testosterone production.
As it is, I am taking a separate ZMA, D-Aspartic Acid and D3 with Vitamin E too.
Now, this combination actually doesn’t contain the full ingredient profile the best testosterone boosters do, but it is a change form the norm and I am interested to see how the combination will perform.
Now this is a testosterone booster with a fairly large number of ingredients that could equally perform as well as the top 3 test boosters or even the combination of pills I am currently taking.
It is called Ultra Test so unless we are being lied to, this could work well.
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.
Chrysin – Laboratory research suggests that chrysin might increase testosterone, but research in humans hasn’t found any effect on testosterone levels.
The amount of chrysin that is absorbed from the intestine may be very small, which would make the effects unlikely.
Cissus Quadrangularis – Due to the ability of cissus quadrangularis to act as a glucocorticoid antagonist, it has been proposed to possess anabolic activity; no studies have yet addressed this topic.
Anecdotes of cissus seem to precede much of the science on the topic.
Hawthorn Berries – At best this ingredient may help with reducing inflammation and blood flow but there’s no concrete evidence to be found regarding increasing testosterone levels.
Every article relating to testosterone increases with Hawthorn berries is on a site wanting you to buy them.
Saw Palmetto – this fatty acid was long touted to help boost testosterone levels, but those claims turned out to be false.
It is effective in suppressing prostate growth though. So could help if you are taking steroids or Prohormones.
Tribulus – Once again, the old tribulus raises its ugly head.
The problem is that because this has been touted about for so long as a bit of a miracle plant extract used by the mysterious Eastern Bloc Olympic Athletes during the Cold War people have started to believe the hype and it is an easily recognizable ingredient the ill informed will have heard about down gym.
The issue is that it has not been scientifically proven to raise testosterone levels in any shape or form.
In fact, in studies using elite professional Australian rugby players as participants Tribulus did not produce the large gains in strength or lean muscle mass that many manufacturers claim can be experienced.
Avoid like a medieval plague if you are looking for muscular gainz.
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.
Magnesium – Research into magnesium supplementation also increased testosterone production in men.
Zinc – An aphrodisiac and Testosterone Booster.
Zinc is also very important for the functioning of the enzyme, hormone, and immune systems.In very high doses, zinc can act as an aromatase inhibitor and reduce estrogen levels.
It is also a potent antioxidant and can provide benefits for prostate issues.
The recommended dose is 3 pills just before bed time.
This means we get 1305mg per day which is not nearly adequate nor competitive.
That is disappointing when you consider the best testosterone boosters offer nearly 3 times that figure.
It is odd that we should have 3 pills before bed.
Effects & Benefits:
Out of the total 9 ingredients present it is shameful to see that just 2 ingredients are effective at stimulating more testosterone production.
Now, if you do the math, that means just 22% of this will help us increase muscle strength and size.
We see Magnesium and Zinc in many other, very effective and worthwhile testosterone booster supplements.
These 2 ingredients not only just feature in the best testosterone boosters but also ZMA products.
Zinc and Magnesium are two very important minerals that our body requires for health function, not just increased testosterone production.
So what does this offer other than 2 useful ingredients? Well, not a lot, really.
The 2 ingredients combined make up just 230mg of the total 1305mg. That is shocking.
The daily dose is very low, the dosing strategy is not optimal either.
We have ingredients such as Tribulus which are lauded but this praise has never been proven, it is just another scam we have to hurdle in the supplement biz.
I am quite surprised that this doesn’t have a proprietary blend too.
However, overall it is lacking other, effective and proven ingredients.
As such it is left at the back of the stores never to be used. Well, I wouldn’t use it anyway.
NutriSuppz ULTRA TEST Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
This lacks many elements that an effective testosterone booster should.
It lacks more elements than my rather rudimentary mash up of different supplements does and they offer quite bit less than what is found in supplements such as TestoFuel.
Plus, it is a low dose and just has the useful Zinc and Magnesium.
Effective testosterone boosters should include:
Note that not one of the above ingredients are included in this product.
One other thing to note is that effective testosterone boosters contain more of each ingredient whereby a daily dose is around 3000mg.
This would have no real positive effect if taken as a post cycle therapy, it is wrong in so many ways and will not offer hardly any benefit at all.
I would give this a miss, save your money and buy something effective.
