GEC Test MD Testosterone Booster Review
GEC Test MD Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
It is Monday and I feel a bit frazzled from the weekend. I am overwhelmed with jobs to complete in the house and I know have a wedding to attend this weekend.
I am also steadily but slowly increasing the weights that I am lifting in the gym.
This is probably down to the fact my daily commute has dropped from a 4 hour daily drive to an hour on a bicycle. I feel much, much better and with more energy.
However, I am on course to increase my muscle mass and strength and I do not want to falter. I am keen to find a testosterone booster that can maximize my lifts and increase my size.
What I have found here is a testosterone booster from a company called GEC. This sounds like GNC which is a global superpower in nutritional retailing.
GNC also manufacturer a number of products that are interesting to us but they’re never really any good.
I then hope that this doesn’t follow the mold of GNC otherwise this will be a big waste of our time.
On an initial glance this looks a bit 1990’s with its black bottle and metallic/holographic looking graphics.
Odd and dated. A bit like myself.
Epimedium (Horny Goat Weed) – Epimedium, the suspected active component of horny goat weed, appears to act as a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, similar to some drugs used for erectile dysfunction.
It does not, however, stimulate testosterone production.
DIM (Diindolylmethane) – 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.
Ovine Placenta Powder – I cannot find any journals or scientific studies to prove that this will increase testosterone.
The only information which relates to testosterone was on websites advocating this product which seems a bit one sided.
Otherwise it seems if you are a well financed housewife there are plenty of London health clinics that will happily take many of your British pounds in exchange to rub a sheep placenta on your face.
Fadogia Agrestis – Could be toxic and has no human studies to back up any claims.
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.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) – A hormone produced by the body’s adrenal glands. The body uses DHEA to make androgens and estrogens, the male and female sex hormones. DHEA levels peak at about age 25, then go down steadily as you get older.
By the time people are 70 to 80 years old, their DHEA levels are only 10 to 20% those in young adults.
However, there is little evidence to show that DHEA has any effect on enhancing muscle strength.
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.
The recommended dose is 3 pills per day.
This means we get only 1915mg of combined ingredients per day.
Ingredients aside, it is better to have 4 pills spread out across the day to ensure your body has a constant supply of ingredients.
This is the suggested dosing with the best testosterone boosters.
Effects & Benefits:
There’s two beneficial ingredients for testosterone production. Or rather, testosterone levels.
Bulbine is proven to increase testosterone levels. DIM is able to regulate estrogen and too much estrogen can lower testosterone levels.
There’s a problem with Bulbine though which we will note now…
There’s a lack of ingredients and a lack of mass or weight. The 1915mg is around a third less than what the best testosterone boosters offer.
There’s also a lack of real, proven testosterone boosting ingredients. Okay, Bulbine is effective but it also is toxic, as toxic as doing a cycle of steroids, therefore you may as well do steroids.
Not only that, the amounts required per lbs of body weight is mental. Way more than what can be offered with this product.
DIM can only regulate estrogen but itself cannot increase testosterone levels or stimulate more production.
Fadogia can also be toxic which isn’t a pleasant thought.
The rest of the ingredients are crap.
GEC Test MD Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
There’s only two helpful ingredients present, one of which is toxic and is under-dosed, therefore ineffective.
The other doesn’t stimulate testosterone but does help regulate estrogen which in turn can protect testosterone levels.
All effective testosterone boosters should include the following, and this one doesn’t:
With not one of these ingredients included and the issue of the two toxic ingredients I would give this a miss, save your money and buy something effective and safe.
