Testogen Testosterone Booster Review
Will Testogen effectively raise my testosterone levels?
With a season of rugby ahead of me the fear that I will not be able to perform well is well and truly on my shoulders.
My other concern is that because I am now nearing my mid thirties (almost) the recovery times are so much longer.
Gone are the days when I could play 3 rugby games per week plus do a whole afternoon of Army Cadets.
Just 1 game per week is more than enough and the week long aching from the game can really effect my performance in the gym.
It is getting more and more often that I simply cannot hit the gym hard, but being strong, being fit is all part and parcel of ruby.
It is a bit of a viscous circle so I need all the help I can get, be that for strength or recovery.
A testosterone booster can certainly help, if it is good it can help with all of my ailments even energy levels that I notice drop come midweek.
From a packaging perspective this looks good. It is clean and fresh looking, no gaudy images or vast amounts of text to wade through, and definitely no six-packs and men holding women close to them.
There are 3 key pointers on the label too, and if they are correct, this could shape up to be a good product.
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.
Zinc – Studies show that this has a link with healthy testosterone production.
D-AA, D-Aspartic Acid – D-aspartic acid is one of two forms of the amino acid aspartic acid. The other form is L-aspartate. The benefits of D-AA are specific to it, and do not extend to aspartic acid or L-aspartate.
D-AA can be used as a testosterone booster for infertile men, and by athletes as a temporary booster.
Elevated testosterone levels only last a week to a week and a half in healthy men, with testosterone returning to normal afterward.
D-AA works in the central brain region to cause a release of hormones, such as luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, and growth hormone. It may also build up in the testicles, where it alleviates a rate-limiting step of Testosterone synthesis, which leads to a minor testosterone increase.
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 the gym.
The issue is that it has not been scientifically proven to raise testosterone levels in any shape or form.
Avoid like a medieval plague if you are looking for muscular gainz.
Selenium – No conclusive proof even when supplemented with Zinc that selenium increases testosterone levels.
Panex Ginseng – This form of Ginseng is the most highly researched. There’s lots of evidence which suggest cognitive function, mood and immunity is increased, however, although there is evidence for better erections and an increase in testosterone production for infertile men there is also evidence contradictory evidence also.
Vitamin D3 – Research by the US Library of Medicine has shown that testosterone productions are increased with Vitamin D3 supplementation. This is a key ingredient.
Riboflavin – Important for body growth and red blood cell production. It also aids in the release of energy from proteins.
Calcium – Results show that training results in increased testosterone levels in athletes and that the increase is greater if accompanied by calcium supplementation.
However, a recent study has warned against calcium supplementation due to the increased risk of a heart attack.
4 pills per day – this amounts to a healthy 2910.05mg.
4 pills per day are ideal and it is recommended that they are taken throughout the day rather than all at once.
Having over 3000mg per day is what I am looking for too if I am being picky.
However, overall this is shaping up to be a well dosed product and far better than most others available.
This features some great ingredients.
The D3, D-Aspartic Acid, Zinc, Ginseng and Fenugreek are big hitters and are all proven to stimulate testosterone levels which is what we want to see.
These main ingredients are often overlooked by other manufacturers, however, the clinical studies have proven that they all work to stimulate more testosterone production naturally and safely.
This combination of ingredients will be able to help you build more strength, build muscle size as well as help you lose fat.
You should also be able to notice an increase in energy levels be this to help you get off your ass in the evening, general mood or even sexual.
The main issue is not all of the ingredients included are proven to work and are just an insignificant inclusion.
Items such as Selenium and Tribulus are just just the result of a lack of proper research which then reflects badly on the rest of the product.
Additionally, although we do have the excellent inclusion of D3 and D-Aspartic Acid, they’re are slightly lower dosed than the best testosterone booster on the market.
While it does in some cases have more of D-Aspartic Acid and D3 than the competitors it does not have that full plethora of active ingredients such as Magnesium, K2, Oyster or even Boron.
This ticks many of the boxes to grab attention.
Many customers may well not be particularly au fait with doses and the full plethora of ingredients required to produce a good, effective testosterone booster.
Without taking away any credit, this is better than 90% of the testosterone boosters on the market and will help you develop more muscle.
Your overall performance should be enhanced by this testosterone booster.
However, for optimal performance it needs to incorporate just a few more key ingredients and it could become a giant slayer.
