L & L Supplements Testosterone Boost Review
L & L supplements are new to me. In all honesty it looks like a bit of a basic operation that is set up. Very little has gone in to the branding, the naming of the product or anything really. It looks as if someone has just pissed around on MS paint and printed a load of labels off their printer and stuck them on a generic bottle. I could be hideously wrong though, let’s see…
For our in-depth ingredients guide checkout:
A total of 1820mg of ingredients which is about 50% of what is provided in out #1 testosterone booster so this has not got off to a terribly good start.
Zinc – This mineral is great for boosting testosterone, it is necessary for reactions in your brain and promotes the production of both testosterone and growth hormone. The amount here is about equal to that found in a good ZMA product.
Tongkat Ali – Eurycoma (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.
Maca Root – This Peruvian strain of ginseng is great for lifting libido and mood, however, when it comes to raising testosterone levels it has no effect at all. No significant influences on testosterone in any tested demographic I’m afraid.
L-Arginine – This is found in many pre workout supplements or products designed to make you more vascular. L-Arginine opens up the blood vessels and arteries to assist with blood flow, nothing really to do with testosterone but may assist with any impotency issues that are not helping you attain that hot chick in the gym who is 15 years your junior.
Panex Ginseng – This form of Ginseng is the most highly researched. There’s lots of evidence which suggest cognitive function, mood and immunity is increased, however, although there is evidence for better erections and an increase in testosterone production for infertile men there is also evidence contradictory evidence also.
Eleutherococcus Senticosus (Siberian Ginseng) – Whilst there is evidence that this can actually help treat herpes and reduce the severity of cold and flu, there is very little solid evidence to reliably suggest this helps increase testosterone or increase strength.
However, we are now punished with a proprietary blend which means we are not entirely sure of the ingredient profile breakdown:
Sarsaparilla – Athletes sometimes use sarsaparilla as a steroid for performance enhancement. Some supplement makers claim that chemicals (sterols) in sarsaparilla can be converted to anabolic steroids like testosterone. But this is a false claim.
Pumpkin Seed – Pumpkin seeds are great for Magnesium which is good for testosterone production.
Muira Puama – No real scholarly studies or evidence available from reliable sources that would suggest that this stimulates testosterone production.
Nettle – Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
Cayenne Pepper – The hot and spicy taste of cayenne pepper comes from capsaicin, a compound found in many hot peppers. Capsaicin is known to boost metabolism, causing the body to produce extra heat and burn more calories for fuel. This is found in our favorite fat burner Instant Knockout.
Licorice – May have many various uses, the main being to sooth heartburn and inflamed skin, but for the rest there’s really a lack of evidence to deem it useful.
Astragalus – Bit of an all-rounder, this antioxidant helps protect the body against various stresses, including physical, mental, or emotional stress.
Catauba – Used to heighten sexual arousal and treat male sexual performance problems.
Oyster Powder – Research of this mollusc has shown that is aids your body to increase testosterone.
Orchic Substance – Claimed to help stimulate testosterone in men. However, there is currently no evidence to support this claim.
Tribulus – Once marveled, now known to have no effect on testosterone levels, by now supplement manufacturers should really let go. Avoid like a medieval plague if you are looking for muscular gainz.
2 pills per day – this equates to just 1820mg for the 2 pills – this equates to just 2260mg which is near the levels of our top rated testosterone boosters. Realistically you need 4 pills per day equally spread out to get a good, consistent dose and keep your levels topped up.
Take a look at our Top 3 boosters for something effective.
There’s 1820mg of ingredients here, however, 745mg of that is the proprietary blend, there’s actually only 3 ingredients here known to stimulate testosterone levels.
That’s a pretty low number out of the melee 16 which we are faced with here. Okay, cayenne pepper’s are good for the thermogenic increase we would want to assist with fat burn, but over all a piss poor effort that will do very little if anything at all.
This is nigh exactly the same of the recently reviewed Vitalita Testosterone Booster which in turn is a blatant copy of the offering from Huntington Labs…what a mess.
However, this has a Doctor’s certification attached to it, fuck knows what that means, absolutely jack shit in my book. They have literally got a bit of clip art or a medical professional and stuck it on, do not believe this sort of bullshit. Jeremy Clarkson has been awarded a doctorate for heaven’s sake, if he can get one anyone can.
So we have 3 ingredients that are specifically aimed at athletes to increase endurance, strength and elevate testosterone levels but both fail at fulfilling these spurious claims. Overall, the daily dose is really too low to have a great deal of effect on testosterone levels as just a threesome and while we have 3 solid ingredients it really needs a solid selection of 8 or 9 to be truly effective, it makes me wonder why they have filled it with a further 13 other ingredients that are utterly useless, it seems like the only research the manufacturer’s have done is almost copy the efforts from other copies of efforts who have all done the exact same, it is getting out of hand. It would be great if they were all copying good products, as it is, they aren’t. They probably believe each other’s hype.
So we have a copy of a product that has copied another product and so forth. The majority of the ingredients do nothing to stimulate testosterone production, the daily dose is low and sparse. I could say well it is pretty cheap but why bother wasting money willingly? This will not work, you will not get the gainz you were hoping for. Opt for a product with real research and studies behind its development, not a clip art doctor.
Save yourself some money and disappointment and avoid this product. Take a look at what works.
