Kingfisher Media HIGH T Black Hardcore Formulation Testosterone Booster Review
Kingfisher Media HIGH T Black Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
I am heading out for a drink this evening before I head home and make some dinner for the two of us.
Then it is straight in to the preparations for a weekend away and every eventuality to be catered for, which basically means a lot of prosecco and champagne, because that’s what birthday weekends are all about.
However, this has left me not hitting the gym hard this week, it wasn’t helped either by the fact I played rugby on Saturday and leg and shoulder still aches…badly, to the point I cannot really lift any heavy weight on either.
In fact, I wake up in lots of pain each morning from my leg, so a little down in the dumps I am reminded that my precious gainz need to be preserved.
I also want to maximize my workouts. I want to ensure that I am getting the most from each session and that my muscle and strength is progressing.
I do not want my progression to become stale and grind to a halt.
I regularly use a testosterone booster because I noticed some real changes in not only my physique but my sex drive…it went through the roof once I started using TestoFuel again.
With this I mind, I am intrigued to see what this testosterone booster can do when I have the success of TestoFuel ringing in my ears.
Fenugreek – Fenugreek is a proven ingredient as found in our benchmark testosterone boosting product; Testofuel.
Research shows that a fenugreek seed extract can reduce daily fat intake in overweight men when taken by mouth at a dose of 392 mg three times daily for 2-6 weeks.
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 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 (Eurycoma Longifolia, TongKat Ali) – 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.
Although there’s some research to suggest it may increase testosterone levels in animals and humans it is pretty lackluster which doesn’t bode too well.
Zinc – 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.
Vitamin E – Humans in tests have shown to have low testosterone if they are deficient of Vitamin E.
Vitamin B6 – Vitamin B6 helps testosterone levels by stimulating androgen (a steroid hormone that acts as a precursor for testosterone) receptors in your body, making your testes produce testosterone.
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) – Gives you more energy and boost your metabolism, helping you shed unwanted pounds. Ensure you are not deficient in Vitamin B12 so you can do that quick 10 miler at 5am…
Rasberry Ketone – Whilst touted as a miracle weight loss supplement and sometimes for lean muscle mass it is important to keep in mind that there is no reliable scientific evidence that it improves weight loss when taken by people.
Betaine (trimethylglycine) – This has been recommended as a compound that will increase athletic performance.
However, results from studies have been quite unreliable thus far of Betaine.
A dose of 12500mg has been linked to increased power output, very minimal increase of workout volume and slight endurance. Then again studies have showed no increase of any of the aforementioned parameters.
Arginine-alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) – Tests on supplementation draw no real benefit that would not be found from resistance training itself.
L-Citrulline – This is used as a sports performance and cardiovascular health supplement. L-Citrulline supplementation results in reduced fatigue and improved endurance for both aerobic and anaerobic prolonged exercise.
An increase in growth hormone has been noted with exercise, but not at rest.
L-citrulline boosts nitric oxide production in the body. Nitric oxide helps your arteries relax and work better, which improves blood flow throughout your body.
Supplementing can help lower blood pressure in people with pre-hypertension.
This is often found in the best pre workouts.
To supplement L-citrulline to enhance sports performance, take 6,000 – 8,000 mg of citrulline malate about an hour before exercise.
We are instructed to take 4 pills daily. It seems we have a free reign as and when to take them too.
It is better to have at least 4 pills and for them to be taken over the course of the day to ensure that your body gets a trickle of the nutrients to work with as with the best testosterone boosters.
Plus, too much of some ingredients if not require by the body at the time will merely be excreted and wasted.
The 7 pills provide a mediocre 2669.548mg per day.
Effects & Benefits:
This is essentially trying to be three supplements.
A testosterone booster, fat burner and a pre workout.
This is slightly confusing because what I had bought was a testosterone booster considering that it says it is a testosterone booster on the package.
Now, it is not a bad thing to have the other elements included, but not entirely necessary or what we want.
This does mean that there are only 4 effective, beneficial and proven ingredients to increase testosterone levels.
That doesn’t seem too ‘hardcore’ to me. In fact it seems a little too soft for my liking.
So if we consider the fat burning element, we are actually only provided with 1 ingredient which is Raspberry Ketones…more on to that later.
Then the pre workout bit consists of 3 ingredients. Again, I think this needs to be adressed later.
So, while it is a relief to see Vitamin E, Fenugreek, B6 and Zinc as these are so often present in the best testosterone boosters, to just have these 4 does not really stack up.
Furthermore, Longjack may help with erections. So that may help any underlying issues you have there, but those two ingredients are not related to increased testosterone.
It is good to see the benefits of B12 which helps with energy and Rhodiola that can help with cognitive function, however, I feel these are included to imitate the feeling of higher testosterone levels rather than actually increasing them.
The problem is that there’s only 4 effective ingredients included in this supplement that can increase and preserve healthy testosterone levels.
We are dosed up with Raspberry Ketones which is supposed to help with fat loss, however, this is not proven whatsoever.
Then each and every ingredient that falls within the pre workout blend is either horrendously underdosed so it will not be effective, or in the case of AAKG , just isn’t proven to work anyway…so a bit of a waste.
Then there’s the ever omnipresent Tribulus which doesn’t help increase testosterone levels at all.
This is a proprietary blend too, that means we have no idea of the exact amount of each individual ingredient that is present within the blend.
Of the ingredients that have their doses revealed, it is a slightly depressing scene anyway because they are dosed very low, really low.
It is also $58.99 which isn’t cheap.
Kingfisher Media HIGH T Black Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
Considering this is marketed as a ‘Hardcore Formulation’, it offers much less that many testosterone boosters and few benefits.
Some ingredients just are not proven to be effective, some are provided with inadequate doses and others either do not seem to be entirely relevant or are trying to mimic the effects of higher testosterone levels rather than help stimulate more natural testosterone production.
Not only that, it misses out on a good number of proven ingredients that are found in the most effective testosterone boosters such as:
- D-Aspartic Acid
Instead of wasting your money on this, take a look at what I have found to be personally and scientifically effective instead.
