M DRIVE 4X4 Multi-Stack Power Stack Testosterone Booster Review
Well this is masculine in its name and appearance. What guy doesn’t want that huge 4X4 SUV or Pick-up? Not only that, this is also a multi-stack, that means multiple benefits! Plus, the packaging looks like dark steel chequer plate which is for the hardcore enthusiasts only.
Caffeine – Caffeine intake is associated with weight loss through thermogenesis and fat oxidation.
Ashwaganda – 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.
Agaricus Bisporus – White button mushrooms to you and me, these are seen to be a aromatase inhibitor, therefore they reduce the production of estrogen which can maintain a higher testosterone level. If a man suffers from too much estrogen they can get bitch tits – puffy nipples.
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.
Saw Palmetto – this fatty acid was long touted to help boost testosterone levels, but those claims turned out to be false. It is effective in suppressing prostate growth though. So could help if you are taking steroids or Prohormones.
Boron – Boron is great for the older lifter or those doing high weight low rep work as it helps to reduce inflammation, something that is found in PrimeMale, which I am a fan of.
Nettle Root – Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
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.
The ViNiTrox blend is purely for flavoring.
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.
Agmatine Sulfate – Agmatine is considered to be a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. The majority use agmatine injections, not oral ingestion and there is still no evidence that working memory is enhanced with agmatine supplementation.
L-Norvaline – l-Norvaline showed significant improvement in serum nitrates, urea, LDH, testosterone and testicular protein level in diabetic rats. There seems to be lots of information on the web about l-norvaline being a wonder drug, however, very little can be found from reliable, scientific sources i.e websites that are not trying to sell it to us.
Phytopin – Essentially a trademark name for a brand of beta-sitosterol and seems to be effective at lowering cholesterol. Taking beta-sitosterol significantly lowers total and bad (LDL) cholesterol levels, but it does not raise good (HDL) cholesterol levels.
For our in-depth ingredients guide checkout:
4 pills per day. This equates to, if I have done my math correctly, 2470mg which is A healthy figure.
In terms of pill dosage, if this had any thing in them, I would much prefer 4 pills to be spread out across the day to ensure that the body suffers less spikes and troughs of the ingredients as opposed to taking them all at once. It is 4 pills per day which are found with the best testosterone boosters.
There’s only 1 real, proven and effective testosterone boosting ingredient present if I am being particularly harsh on my evaluation, but we do want the best, not product with ingredients based on anecdotal evidence or just reasoning to believe they work.
One could suggest that L-Norvaline is effective but I could only find a study based on diabetic rats which was positive if not an actual piece of research instead of websites trying to sell its virtues.
Again, L-Citrulline can be effective from growth but only when used during exercise, not for continual supplementation. Then we have the evergreen Longjack which is everywhere and it may be effective but nothing is rally that concrete in terms of evidence. I do not want to entirely discredit it but there’s other proven ingredients out there so why were these not included instead?
Caffeine is great for energy and fat burning, and whilst nettle is good for the prostate these ingredients are only really effective when combined with other’s that are all trying to achieve either fat burn or protecting you from the side effects of steroid use. A product should just be targeting and focused on one goal not try and cover all bases.
This combined with a proprietary blend means we just do not know the exact breakdown of each ingredient present plus being directed to take 4 pills at once isn’t optimal.
There’s so many ingredients in this product that are either not entirely verified for their effectiveness on humans or not really related to the cause of stimulating testosterone production and should therefore not make an appearance.
Overall this product lacks a real plethora of active and proven ingredients that are tested on humans like the best testosterone boosters out there.
I should mention that this is 1 cent shy of $130 too!
It is missing too many key testosterone boosting ingredients such as B6, B12, Zinc, Magnesium, D3, Asian Ginseng, D-Aspartic Acid, Oyster or K2 to be truly effective.
The product needs a clear pathway to focus on, not trying to achieve too many differing goals because it cannot compete against products which are manufactured specifically for these markets.
As a result we have a fairly half baked supplement that cannot be a master of any trade.
