Pulse Nutrition Testosterone Support Review // Are 6 Ingredients Enough?
Pulse Nutrition Testosterone Support Review First Look:
I have been packing my house up all day, now thew big clean commences.
Regrettably I have not had chance to do any weights. This is extremely annoying. Considering I have been away on vacation plus over a week of illness and this move means that it will be close to 3 weeks without lifting weights.
This feels like a disaster. To me anyway. There’s much worse happening in the world right now.
Come tomorrow I will be dismantling all of my gym equipment to ferry it off to my new house and new city.
I just hope I have enough space in the new house to accommodate it all. If not, I know of a great gym nearby which I can go too.
I will also be cycling to work now as well to get 12 miles in per day and I may take up a new sport instead of rugby considering all of the niggling injuries I suffer from all season which also holds me back with my weights.
So what do we think of this bottle then?
It looks like something from a sci-fi movie.
A blue figure, what appears to be space in the background…it does not exactly scream testosterone booster at us, thankfully it is mentioned on the label.
L-Cysteine – Great for people with liver, heart and kidney problems but no evidence for boosting testosterone.
Vitamin D – D3 is a great Testosterone boosting vitamin that must be taken advantage of to trigger further production of Testosterone in your body. If you are looking for a testosterone booster ensure that it contains D3.
However, there are two types of Vitamin D. There’s calciferol (D2) and cholecalciferol (D3) – D3 is the important type because this is the type our skin synthesizes from the sun and becomes a hormone which results in the increases in our testosterone.
Most Western people are deficient in D3.
Research by the US Library of Medicine has shown that testosterone productions are increased with Vitamin D3 supplementation.
Zinc – An aphrodisiac and Testosterone Booster.
Zinc is also very important for the functioning of the enzyme, hormone, and immune systems.
Studies demonstrate that 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.
Vitamin B6 – Vitamin B6 helps testosterone levels by stimulating androgen (a steroid hormone that acts as a precursor for testosterone) receptors in your body, making your testes produce testosterone.
Magnesium – Research into magnesium supplementation also increased testosterone production in men.
Selenium – No conclusive proof even when supplemented with Zinc that selenium increases testosterone levels.
We’re instructed to take 2 capsules a day which is not the most optimal dosing strategy.
It is recommended that we have at least 4 tablets spread evenly across the day, as per the best testosterone booster on the market.
This way your body has a constant trickle of the ingredients to work with in order to stimulate testosterone.
A daily serving is hideously low at just 247.58mg. It is not up there with better products such as Prime Male.
Effects & Benefits:
There’s just the 6 ingredients here, however, if they are good, that is all that matters.
It actually seems just 4 of the 6 are worth their salt.
Zinc, B6 and Magnesium are the ingredients found in a ZMA product which is essentially the backbone of a testosterone booster, it is reassuring to see these 3 vitamins and minerals.
We then have another reassuring vitamin; yes that is Vitamin D3. This is great for increasing testosterone levels.
We mainly get Vitamin D3 from the sun, however, work practice changes, health scares and so on mean that many people are deficient in D3.
You can also get D3 from eggs and oily fish.
Its importance is so much so that Public Health England recommend that people in England supplement D3 as it can help with cognitive health, bone health and organ health.
When supplemented with Magnesium it can also help combat bone fractures according to studies.
It seems a shame that they have missed out other great ingredients to, such as D-Aspartic Acid, K2, Fenugreek etc.
It seems also that some extra research is required because Selenium and L-Cysteine do not offer any increases in testosterone at all.
The overall daily dose is very, very low and the dosing strategy is not optimal either.
It really is lacking.
Pulse Nutrition Testosterone Support Review Conclusion:
This is essentially a low dosed ZMA supplement with additional Vitamin D3.
That is not to be sniffed at, usually…
However, this dose is so low that it just does not make it competitive when you look at other supplements available.
Therefore, the token D3 has very little impact.
The Selenium and L-Cysteine are not effective either, therefore it would be better if these were replaced by some effective ingredients with a wealth of proof behind them.
The daily dose should be increased too.
