EPG TESTOSHRED Testosterone Booster Review
So myself and girlfriend hit the weights last night in the home gym underneath my living room where I keep a stash of prosecco.
We both worked hard and I was really impressed my girlfriends performance considering as she had already hit the gym earlier in the day for a leg session, obviously sporting a testosteronejunkie hoodie.
Once we have wrapped up everything downstairs we had some dinner which consisted of squid and a vegetable and cous cous medley. We also had a bottle of red wine because it is Thursday afterall, then hit Netflix.
Why am I telling you all this? I don’t actually know.
However, the girlfriend deserves a shout for putting up with me and my vocal cat, Molly. Plus it’s nice have a bottle of wine towards the end of the week.
Having finished out wights session I felt good and strong, the weights were heavy and showing slow but steady progression.
To maximize this progression I want to ensure I can do everything to help build the muscle and strength.
As a result I take a natural testosterone booster to ensure I am making steady progress in the gym.
I normally take TestoFuel which has seen me make some great gains, not to mention sending my sex drive through the roof…although my girlfriend is a huge contributing factor to that too.
Black Pepper (BioPerine) – The extract of piperine, called BioPerine® in the patented form, has been clinically tested in the United States.
D-Aspartate, DAA – 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.
Calcium is added to help with solubility, thus we get Calcium D-Aspartic Acid.
Tribulus – Once again, the old Tribulus raises its ugly head. And its head is fucking ugly. Like a medieval gargoyle.
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.
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.
Bulbine Natalensis – A herb from Africa, this increases testosterone, however, it is also as toxic as a steroid cycle. 50mg per 1kg or 2.2lbs of body weight needs to be taken to be effective.
That means at approximately 92kg/202lbs I would need 4600mg per day.
Arimistane (Androst 3,5-dien-7, 17-dione) – Theoretically may be able to increase testosterone levels.
However, as no human or animal interventions have been conducted with Androsta-3,5-diene-7,17-dione we don’t actually know.
The label instructs us to have up to 4 tablets per day.
It is recommended that we have at least 4 tablets spread evenly across the day, as per the best testosterone booster on the market.
When you have more doses throughout the day it ensures your body always has nutrients to work with.
Additionally, if your body receives an overload of ingredients at once, it will not utilize anything it doesn’t require at the time which can lead to waste.
Each daily serving equates to 2560mg which is not the worst we have seen.
This is less than what we find in effective testosterone boosters such as Prime Male.
Effects & Benefits:
D-Aspartic Acid is a great testosterone boosting ingredient and found in the best testosterone boosters because of its effectiveness.
Bulbine is also proven to increase testosterone, however, let’s discuss this in more detail in the next section…
BioPerine helps with the absorption of the ingredients, but other than that, nothing else assists with stimulating more testosterone.
There’s no scientific proof that Armistane can increase testosterone levels. In fact there’s very little studies surrounding it at all.
There’s also absolutely no proof available to confirm that Tribulus increases testosterone levels at all, either.
Then, Bulbine…unfortunately this is hit with two issues.
One, is that it is actually toxic, as toxic as taking steroids.
The second is that you would need way much more for it to be effective than what is dosed here. Therefore it will be ineffective anyway.
So that is $39.95 for the luxury of just D-Aspartic Acid and some toxicity.
EPG TESTOSHRED Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
This can, theoretically increase testosterone, it does include D-Aspartic Acid afterall.
However, it only provides us with the minimum amount required to have a positive impact.
Then we have Bulbine which again, can increase testosterone levels. However, it is dosed too low and is toxic.
The rest don’t work.
That is not a good result when you consider testosterone boosters such as TestoFuel which I use offer over 8 proven ingredients with adequate and effective doses.
