Man Upgrade Boostime Testosterone Booster Review
Man Upgrade Boostime Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
I moved house this weekend and it has been a constant toil.
Lots of time off work, lots of running around, moving and generally quite stressful, not helped either by my recent stomach illness I caught while on vacation in Italy.
All in all a pretty shitty 3-4 weeks.
Now though I can eventually settle in and start hitting the weights again and start getting through lots of supplements and restart the videos I was doing in respect of pre workouts which I have been trying to see what is the most effective.
I also feel a little low on testosterone at the moment but I cannot figure out if that is related to all of the hectic activity or because I have not been lifting weights regularly combined with age.
In response, I have been trying to seek out the most effective testosterone booster which leads me on to this, from Man Upgrade.
Boostime looks quite sharp and sporty. Is this to be trusted?
Deer Velvet Antler – generally derived from deer antlers, its use comes from ancient Chinese medical practices. It doesn’t appear to affect hormone production in humans.
Saffron (Crocus sativus) – Studies show that saffron, at the recommended dose, has antidepressant properties. Saffron’s side effects, like reduced snacking and an elevated mood, could be the result of increased serotonin secretion.
Saffron does not have a high margin of safety, so care should be taken during supplementation.
The standard daily dose is 30mg, used for up to eight weeks. It is possible that even double the dose could result in harm to the body.
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.
However, you are probably in look because only 12% of men throughout the whole world are infertile, and even then, that is a generous estimate by the World Health Authority.
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.
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.
There is evidence for better erections and an increase in testosterone production for infertile men.
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.
It also failed to provide any benefit hen tested on a bunch of professional Australian rugby players.
Butea Superba – Used to increase testosterone and increase sexual function but there is no evidence to warrant these claims. Found in our list of ingredients to avoid, here.
We’re instructed to take 2 capsules a day which is not the most optimal dosing strategy.
It is recommended that we have at least 4 tablets spread evenly across the day, as per the best testosterone booster on the market.
This way your body has a constant trickle of the ingredients to work with in order to stimulate testosterone.
A daily serving is a lackluster 1490mg. It is not up there with better products such as TestoFuel.
Effects & Benefits:
The only positive ingredients here to increase testosterone levels is Ashwagandha and Panax Ginseng however, this is only effective in men who are infertile.
This means only 12% of the global population may benefit from taking these 2 ingredients.
Other than that, Saffron may increase serotonin production. However, it isn’t without risk.
This consists of a proprietary blend. If you think that allowing a supplement company to hide the exact amount of each ingredient given in a supplement is a scam, well you are correct. It is a scam.
Considering there’s a total of 7 ingredients and only 1 may, may help increase testosterone levels I would say that is poor value.
There’s also the intrepid Tribulus while full of global acclaim has yet to be proven that it is effective.
Saffron may help you feel like your testosterone levels are increasing with potential fat loss and feeling a little bit more positive but this is merely a mimicking effect and not actually the result of increased testosterone.
Not only that, but this needs to be dosed correctly otherwise it can be harmful, not ideal when we have no idea how much is included in this proprietary blend.
Man Upgrade Boostime Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
We have a poor performing, under-dosed when compared to the competition and a secretive proprietary blend which may prove harmful if you consume too much Saffron.
Which brings me on to my next point, Saffron is merely used to mimic some of the effects of increased testosterone levels. So it is being dishonest.
Then we have 2 potentially effective ingredients that may only offer any benefit if you are infertile, this only accounts for approximately 12% of the global male population…
Overall, this is not a testosterone booster that I could recommend.
Take a look at what works to maximize your workouts.
