My Eddie Hall Signature Series The Beast Absolute Test Natural Testosterone Booster Review
My Eddie Hall Signature Series The Beast Absolute Test Natural Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
So last night I hit the gym and I am increasingly trying to work my legs harder.
I do deadlifts with a hex bar that puts a bit more strain on your legs rather than the lower back.
However, my gym is an old coal bunker deep beneath my sitting room and as a results the floor is made up of uneven stone slabs.
This means the weights never sit straight or completely flat, nor do my feet.
So, in essence, it is not the most ideal proving ground for deadlifts.
In fact, overall, the bunker may be good for the breakout of WW3 and with the condensation there’s always a supply of water and dampness that would keep anyone with TB out.
Yet, I feel Eddie Hall ‘The Beast’ doesn’t train in a space like this.
Unfortunately I do not have the backing, not the inlcination to deadlift 1,100 lbs.
All, the same, it can be quite a frustrating experience that has almost tempted me to go to a normal gym with more equipment available for a proper solid workout.
However, shortly, in the non to distant future I should be having more time to concentrate on my lifting and this will include nutrition and other accompanying exercise as well as supplements.
Until then, I am struggling through the week trying my best to make some progress or catch up after time out from injury or illness, not to mention the ageing process.
Eddie Hall is currently thirty years old. That is just about four years younger than myself.
So, technically and quite laughably (when you think about it considering the brutus of the man he is) he is teetering on the verge of andropause.
Yep, theoretically (now this effects people in different ways and at different times) his natural levels of testosterone should have already peaked and now start their natural decline.
What few people know is that avoiding a reduction in natural testosterone levels is important for overall health, not just building muscle and strength.
A reduction in testosterone can lead to the following issues:
- 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.
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.
As such, I use TestoFuel because it contains nine proven ingredients that are able to stimulate more testosterone production.
As a result I have seen some great results that would envy a younger version of myself.
I am always keen to see what other products can offer and if they can have such great effects as well.
This product is actually from protein Dynamix and marketed under the Eddie Hall brand, ‘The Beast’.
Fair play to him, but, somehow I am not entirely certain that he takes these himself.
Ingredients: The Science
Diindolylmethane appears to promote a healthy balance of testosterone in the body and is found in vegetables such as broccoli.
Cruciferous vegetables which contain high levels of DIM such as broccoli are eaten by many professional athletes such as rugby league players for their benefits.
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.
Low levels of Vitamin B6 can correlate with low levels of testosterone, which suggests that the vitamin has a supporting role in test production.
Some experts think that Vitamin B6 could work as a test booster by blocking T-binding activity in the cell receptors involved with binding to (and inactivating) testosterone.
Magnesium is a mineral with many uses and functions, not withstanding protein synthesis as well as muscle and nerve function.
Along with Potassium and Calcium Magnesium also contributes to healthy heart function and muscle contraction – great for exercise!
If you are suffering from a Magnesium deficiency it can affect hormone levels such as testosterone but also be the root of fatigue, weakness and cramp.
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.
D-AA works in the central brain region to cause a release of hormones, such as luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, and growth hormone.
Importantly, unlike some pro-hormones and steroids, it does not raise estrogen levels.
A dose of 2000-3000mg is required.
DAA is found in the most effective and beneficial testosterone boosters.
You can read more in to the benefits of D-Aspartic Acid supplementation, here.
Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera)
Ashwagandha seems to be useful and effective at raising natural levels of testosterone in men who are infertile and as a result have low test levels.
However, what isn’t clear is whether Ashwagandha has the same effects on men with normal and healthy testosterone levels.
Therefore, if you are infertile, this looks to be a great addition. If you are not infertile, probably not so much.
Male infertility is often talked about, yet, the World Health Organisation only (generously) estimates that 12% of the global male population are infertile.
I heard about Tribulus before I even started hitting the gym properly, such is its legend.
However, this is part of the problem.
It has been sold as a testosterone stimulating miracle plant extract, yet this is far from the truth.
Used more as a diversionary tactic than anything, Tribulus became known as the wonder drug that was behind the success of the Eastern Bloc Olympians during the cold war, with that background story people clung on to it hoping for natural, safe steroid like growth.
Yet, this is not correct. Studies have demonstrated that it has no positive effect of testosterone levels at all.
Actually, when tested on some professional rugby players in Australia, Tribulus did not produce the muscular strength or size increases that is so often advertised.
Six capsules are to be taken which is a lot, the problem is, we are instructed to take them just before bed.
It is recommended that we spread our doses 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 and to ensure that if you get a large hit of ingredients it isn’t wasted if your body doesn’t require them.
A daily serving is 3798.41mg.
This is quite a lot and compares well to the dose offered by products like Prime Male.
Considering this is marketed using the Eddie Hall name you and I should expect the best and most powerful ingredients.
So, I am quite alarmed to see that there are only several ingredients, and not all are proven to help raise natural levels of testosterone.
That said, there are five ingredients that are proven and found in the best test boosters on the market, which is promising and reassuring.
So let us read through the best ingredients that this supplement has to offer:
DAA is universally appraised for its positive effects that it has on natural testosterone levels.
A testosterone booster without DAA is lacking, and there must be a very good reason not to include it.
DIM is not actually an ingredient that is able to raise testosterone levels, however, it has an ability to inhibit (that is to stop the increase) of estrogen levels.
If your estrogen levels get too high it can then have a negative effect on your test levels by holding them back.
It is no secret that many professional; athletes, particularly those that need to by physically fit and robust eat vegetables high in DIM.
Fenugreek is another ingredient known to help stimulate natural testosterone levels, it also have an ability to help you lose fat.
Zinc has the ability to raise test levels and prevent too much estrogen getting a foothold, if you are low on Zinc, you are bound to be suffering from low testosterone.
Magnesium prevents feelings of fatigue, muscle cramps and supplementation helps prevent a reduction of testosterone, let’s also not forget that it helps with nerve and muscle function.
B6 there is a correlation between low testosterone and a lack of vitamin B6. Therefore, keeping B6 topped up is imperative.
$42.95 / £29.99
This doesn’t really have the full plethora of ingredients that many other effective testosterone boosters has.
While it does have five testosterone stimulating ingredients and one that can inhibit estrogen, there’s a further two that either offer partial benefit or none whatsoever.
As a result, they should be replaced with something else that is effective.
These are the two ingredients under dispute…
Ashwagandha has shown to be only beneficial for men who are infertile.
However, the number or percentage of men who are infertile is actually quite low, only 12% of the global male population are estimated to be infertile. So quite a small demographic.
Tribulus is often lauded but it offers categorically negative results for it being able to
stimulate an increase in testosterone production.
It has to be said, that if you are looking to raise your natural test levels, you need to find a supplement with the following ingredients that are proven to help:
This is highlighted because when you consider the effective testosterone boosters such as TestoFuel contain 9 proven ingredients to raise test levels.
My Eddie Hall Signature Series The Beast Absolute Test Natural Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
I was expecting big things with this test booster, and why not?
It is endorsed by the big man himself and we are told he uses it himself, he may do but it would not be on its own.
Even if he was using this, it is not the best product he could use on the market because it includes one ingredient that offers no benefit to raising test levels and another ingredient that is only effective if you are infertile.
To make matters worse, it then misses out on many other ingredients that really would have projected this supplement to the top.
Any final words for this review..?
This may be endorsed by The Beast but actually it is not the best performer out there.
That is not to say it won’t help, but there are better test boosters that you can buy.
Therefore, at present, you should check out what the better options, here.
