Megathon ULTRA TEST Testosterone Booster Review
This certainly has all the hallmarks of a weightlifting supplement, big bold lettering in a font we have never heard of (in MS Word anyway), some weird carbon fiber style backing graphics, dark colors…the whole works.
However, will it live up to the weightlifting hype or is it all bullshit?
Take a look at our Top 3 boosters for something effective.
There are a sensible 9 ingredients included and no goddam proprietary blend thankfully, this means we can be sure of how much of each ingredient is included per serving rather than being blindly fed a number of ingredients.
Zinc – An aphrodisiac and Testosterone Booster, but it will only raise testosterone levels if the user is deficient in zinc. 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. What is strange here is that they use Zinc Oxide, I have looked at some research on rats which would suggest that supplementation of Zinc Oxide can cause immune toxicity.
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.
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.
Magnesium – By binding testosterone with protein in your bloodstream it allows far great circulation of the male hormone around your body to then be effective.
Chrysin – Laboratory research suggests that chrysin might increase testosterone but research in humans hasn’t found any effect on testosterone levels. The amount of chrysin that is absorbed from the intestine may be very small, which would make the effects unlikely.
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.
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.
Hawthorn Berries – At best this ingredient may help with reducing inflammation and blood flow but there’s no concrete evidence to be found regarding increasing testosterone levels. Every article relating to testosterone increases with Hawthorn berries is on a site wanting you to buy them.
Cissus Quadrangularis – Due to the ability of cissus quadrangularis to act as a glucocorticoid antagonist, it has been proposed to possess anabolic activity; no studies have yet addressed this topic. Anecdotes of cissus seem to precede much of the science on the topic.
For our in-depth ingredients guide checkout:
3 pills per day – this amounts to low 1305mg of ingredients daily. 4 pills per day is ideal to avoid peaks and troughs of the ingredients to take full effect. So only having half measures does not bode too well for big gainz.
There are 2 active, testosterone stimulating ingredients and 1 of those (Zinc Oxide) could well be toxic if the studies are anything to go by, the rest are, well, they’re not very helpful at all. As unhelpful as trying to walk home with your bags of shopping and someone have put bricks in the bags. So for boosting testosterone we have 200mg of Magnesium and nothing else which is a shame considering the look and name of the product.
The products in our top3 provide more D-Aspartic Acid alone which is a proven ingredient to raise testosterone levels than this does with every ingredient included.
Apart fro only 1 ingredient being good, this product is extremely similar to Iron Labs’ TEST Xtreme, which in terms of testosterone is about as un-xtreme as you can get which is highly disappointing. The only thing that keeps this product from being as shit as TEST Xtreme is that TEST Xtreme is only 1285mg in strength! That’s enough to make the late Steve Irwin shout “STREWTH!” from his grave.
Notwithstanding the dosing schedule is hardly optimal and lack of overall ingredients means that the best rated testosterone booster adds another 1000+mg daily.!
From a first glance I thought we were on to something here, I thought we were looking at a proper bodybuilding supplement from the days of yore, made by bodybuilders for bodybuilders but, alas, I was wrong. This has barely any effective ingredients and a horrifically low daily dose, not good at all.
To make this effective they would have to ditch the current ingredients and include ingredients found in our favorite and highly regarded testosterone boosters such as D-Aspartic Acid, D3, B6, B12, Fenugreek, Oyster, K2…the list goes on.
