My BPI Sports BEST TEST Natural Test Booster Review
My BPI Sports BEST TEST Natural Test Booster Review First Look:
I have just hit the gym underneath my sitting room.
I am keen to ensure I hit as many muscles as possible in the smallest amount of time possible, so have done deadlifts and then, I did incline bench…I haven’t focused on my upper chest for ages!
This was a great feeling and I am so happy to do them.
I have been struggling on my flat bench for a couple of weeks now, so mixing it up may help a bit.
This is a nice confidence boost when all seemed grim and troublesome.
Especially after a long and mainly uphill 9 miles cycle home in the cold mist.
However, with looming vacation son the horizon, I have the motivation to get in the stone, vaulted and creepy basement to get those compound exercises in.
Due to wanting to get back to the weight I was once lifting I have been taking testosterone boosters such as TestoFuel with great results.
So I am always keen to see what other testosterone booster supplements are out in the market and how effective they can be.
Especially when we must also understand that having a healthy natural test levels are not just about getting jacked.
A reduction in testosterone can lead to the following problems:
- Loss of muscle mass
- Loss of strength
- Increased risk of osteoporosis
- A change in mood and outlook on life
- Increase of fat mass
- Reduced energy levels
- Loss of libido
There are some way to combat this, and resistance training or weightlifting is helpful, particularly if compound exercises are employed.
Hence why I do the big lifts.
Seeing as I am interested in weight lifting and trying to increase my strength it is of a double concern that my testosterone levels are maintained at a high level.
This particular natural test booster ranks high on Amazon’s ‘wish list’ figures, plus after scouring a few forums I am eager to see if this has the ability be a #1 contender in the test booster game.
Ingredients: The Science
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.
Zingiber Officinale (Ginger)
Ginger has a great ability to reduce body weight without inhibiting pancreatic lipase level, or affecting bilirubin concentration, with positive effect on increasing peroxisomal catalase level and HDL-cholesterol.
Akarkara (anacyclus pyrethrum)
Tests in rats appear to increase testosterone levels. No human testing has been completed.
700-2200mg for a 200lbs person required.
NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide + hydrogen)
There are really very few benefits for any of the claimed uses of NADH.
Quercetin (Apple extract, 3, 4, 5, 7-pentahydroxylflavone)
Has anti-oxidant, anti-artherogenic, and anti-carcinogenic properties.
Quercetin is also neuroactive, with some of the same abilities as Caffeine but less potent. It increases the bio-availability of resveratrol.
Doses of up to 25mg per kg of body weight is advised.
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.
Zinc is found in the best natural test booster’s.
Preliminary evidence suggests that Pedalium could increase testosterone and act as an aphrodisiac, although there are no human studies currently.
The exact bioactives in Pedalium are equally unknown, and all that can be said is that many of the bioactivities of Pedalium are somewhat similar to Tribulus, which is bad news.
A dose of 32mg per kg of body weight is probably recommended but there is a real lack of testing.
Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera)
Studies have shown that treatment with Ashwagandha root extract resulted in a higher level of testosterone and a concomitant increase in serum levels of LH among infertile men having sub-optimal testosterone levels.
It’s difficult to see if the same result would be found with guys who do not have any fertility issues. So the question is, are you infertile?
If you’ve been banging your missus (or even your mistress, we shouldn’t be even talking if you have smashed your sister) unprotected and have miraculously not had a sprog you probably are infertile…sorry to break that to you, bro.
However, you are probably in look because only 12% of men throughout the whole world are infertile, and even then, that is a generous estimate by the World Health Authority.
This is a powerful antioxidant that may help protect cells from damage.
This is why there is a lot of research interest in lycopene’s role, if any, in preventing cancer.
However, there’s still not a great deal of evidence for all of its supposed remedial effects as of yet.
Up to two capsules per day. That is not the best dosing strategy.
However, we would recommend that you 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.
Each daily servings consists of 1580mg which is not as much that is provided by the better testosterone boosters.
These ingredients are found in very few natural testosterone boosters.
This is because, realistically, they do not have much benefit.
Zinc is the only conclusive ingredient present, hence why it is found in test boosters such as TestoFuel.
Ashwagandha may help, but only if you fall within the 12% of men globally that are infertile as estimated by the World Health Organization.
Then there could be hope with the supplementation of Pedalium and Akarkara, which, in preliminary studies on rats show that they could raise testosterone levels.
However, there as of yet, no human studies and they are very much dose dependant on weight.
Ginger can help lose weight, but really, that being included is just to mimic the effects of raising test levels and it is a common practice with natural test boosters, it does not inspire confidence though.
There’s only one concrete ingredient present that we know through many studies is able to help increase testosterone levels.
The further three are an unknown and a gamble.
That’s the problem with this T booster supplement from BPI Sports, it includes many unknown or untested ingredients, therefore you are the guinea pig.
With a real lack of human studies, plus the low dose and this is also a proprietary blend.
I do not recommend the use of this, there’s too many unknowns.
BPI are trying to offer something new to the market but it lacks human testing or just ingredients that require specific doses or ingredients that have no body of proof at all that they can be beneficial.
In addition, for Akara to be potential effective in raising my natural test levels, I would need up to 2200mg…this whole daily dose is less than 1900mg!
My BPI Sports BEST TEST Natural Test Booster Review Conclusion:
To say that this is high on everyone’s wish list is baffling me.
There’s a real lack of human studies proving that this combination of ingredients are effective at raising natural T levels.
In fact, there’s only one sure ingredient, plus a further three that are possibilities. But, just possibilities, nothing concrete.
Then there is a proprietary blend which conceals the exact ingredient breakdown which is important considering there are two ingredients that are dependent on the dose per body weight.
However, that doesn’t hide the fact that overall this is a low dose that offers little benefit over other test boosters.
This is a supplement that is devoid of many of the proven and often used ingredients that are clinical reliable to increase testosterone levels such as:
- Vit. C
As a result, I do not believe the hype I read across forums – people do not do enough research in to these matters and tend to buy based upon brand image.
