Forest Leaf Ultra Alpha Testosterone Booster Review
Forest Leaf Ultra Alpha Testosterone Booster First Look:
Here, presented before my very eyes is another bargain basement testosterone booster found online.
By looking at the bottle and design you can see where they saved their cents.
It is hardly the latest in marketing and design facilitation, that said, we are looking for results, not looking for the prettiest bottle.
However, it can mean that a potentially excellent product is overlooked because it there’s no excitement or draw to the supplement.
As I sit here typing on this cold evening and my holds frozen from the fruit I have just juiced wondering how I can increase testosterone levels I cannot help but think back to an article that has previously posted about the people who are steroid users are not professional athletes but just gym goers like you and me.
We want to improve our physical appearance but not necessarily our sporting performance.
However, there can be issues related to steroid use, particularly long term use.
Alternatively, a natural testosterone booster like this can help the likes of you and I improve muscular size and strength without the unwanted side effects.
Velvet Bean (Macuna Pruriens) – This is actually good for treating people with Parkinsons. There’s a mixed bag of results for testosterone but look mainly positive.
Results have shown an increase in testosterone levels in infertile men, however, results are very limited for fertile men.
It is effective to reduce cortisol levels – high stress levels can harm testosterone production.
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.
Magnesium – Research into magnesium supplementation also increased testosterone production in men.
Zinc – Studies show that this has a link with healthy testosterone production.
Nettle – Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
Avena Sativa (Oat) – This is a type of oat that has been seen to raise luteinzing hormones in the body, which are a precursor to testosterone and growth hormone. Not a great deal of real, heavy evidence if anything at all but the hallmarks of something good are there. A bit of a gamble. In plenty of T-Boosters that do not work.
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.
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.
Longjack Extract – Eurycoma (Tongkat Ali, LongJack) is a pro-fertility agent and aphrodisiac that appears to have a large body of evidence supporting this role and some evidence suggesting it may be an anti-estrogen and pro-erectile agent.
However, there is a lack of evidence for testosterone boosting in humans, although some very limited evidence in animals.
DIM (Diindolylmethane) – Diindolylmethane appears to promote a healthy balance of testosterone in the body and is found in vegetables such as broccoli.
Only a dose of 2 tablets per day is instructed.
This only amounts to a ridiculously low and ineffective 690mg per day!
That is less than 25% of what we would get in the best testosterone boosters.
Effects & Benefits:
This product costs less than $15 dollars. The old saying goes that if you buy cheap, you buy twice.
This would certainly be the case here, because even if all of the ingredients are great, you still need to buy 3 more bottles to be even lose to what we offered with other products over the course of a month.
What ingredients are presented that actually offer any benefit?
Zinc, DIM and Magnesium are great starting points because they are both proven ingredients to help increase testosterone levels.
Zinc, DIM and Magnesium are also great finishing points too because none of the other ingredients are proven to offer any benefit to fertile men.
If you are 1 of the 8% of the global population that is estimated to be infertile according to the World Heath Organisation, you may find solace in Ashwagandha and Macuna Pruriens.
These two seem to help those with fertility issues, but they are such a low number across the global society.
Black Pepper (Bioperine) is good to help with absorption of these nutrients.
This is a very low overall daily dose, terribly low and as said earlier, you’ll be paying four times to be anywhere near the likes of TestoFuel.
There’s also far too few ingredients that offer any help in order to raise testosterone levels.
If you are considered a healthy, fertile man only 3 ingredients of the 10 are beneficial, although at these low doses that is unlikely.
If you are infertile a further 2 help which equates to, at best, 50% of the product having any benefit.
That does drop to 30% if you are able to make women pregnant with just your sweat.
The remaining 5 ingredients just offer no direct in=improvements of testosterone levels.
Nettle can help lower inflammation which can harm testosterone levels and cause obesity, but we are clutching t straws here.
To see Tribulus irritates me due to its known ineffectiveness but it also doesn’t surprise me that it is present.
Forest Leaf Ultra Alpha Testosterone Booster Conclusion:
I am aghast at this product, not necessarily because at best only 505 offers any benefit but mainly due to the astoundingly low level of overall ingredients are on offer, not even 700mg is dosed per day.
That means that the beneficial 3 or 5 ingredients will barely scratch the surface.
This product also lacks many, well known and well regarded ingredients such as:
- D-Aspartic Acid
All of the above and more are included in the best testosterone boosters, take a look at what works to maximize your workouts.
