Modern Man Testosterone Booster Thermogenic Fat Burner Review
Modern Man Test Booster & Thermogenic Review
This supplement is both testosterone booster and a thermogenic fat burner and appeals to the modern man…
I’m being asked when I was last in the ‘zone’. I parked my car in the wrong zone once and had to pay a hefty release fee so I try to stay clear of all zones if I am being honest.
I was knew a mate who was locked in the ‘friend zone’ too. All-in-all, zones are pretty brutal so these trying to coax me in to one is like trying to corner a honey badger (okay, koala bear).
Zones aside Modern Man all looks good on the packaging front, a bit of thought and care has gone in to this which one always assumes will be reflected in the quality of the product, however, this is not always the case.
Now. I am not sure how well the modern man is, I mean, have you seen the series with Bear Grylls ‘The Island’ where modern people are left to survive and cooperate with each other?
Yeah, the modern man performs pretty dismally it seems as soon as our creature comforts are taken away, I mean, historic man would have been a better brand name or Industrial Revolution man, Civil War man, soldier man.
Probably not man who sits in his Tahoe for 2 hours a day massaged by a/c, leather and an iced coffee before dragging his fat ass in to Home Depot for a new lamp shade that his overbearing wife has just given him a dry blowjob for.
Actually, this is probably why the modern man needs a supplement like this. It looks like they’re spot on.
TL:DR – Video Review
Who are Modern Man?
When you visit their website it is quite refreshing.
There’s not hundreds of pictures or images of super ripped guys, but a few images of normal looking men who clearly just like to work out.
This is quite appealing to the average man. Sometimes, huge, muscly men with minimal body fat is not that aspirational because it is too far flung and a distant hope for guys when they were in their twenties.
The modern man probably has a family, mortgage, rent, car payments and other bills to pay.
As such, they get gym time when and where they can.
But then the script on the website is much more alpha…
‘You were born to win this world.’
However, we are assured that their supplements are produced using the most innovative ingredients.
This combination of nutrients can help develop your physique and gain a mental edge.
Modern Man have made quite a few claims regarding this product, but it is nothing that we have not heard before.
- Improved focus
- Increased testosterone
- Stress reduction
- Increased energy
- More muscle
>> Take a look at our Top 3 boosters for something effective <<
We have two ‘complex’s’ here, now this usually means we have two proprietary blends hiding the exact amount of content for each ingredient, but these good guys have not hidden it at all restoring an ounce of humanity.
Yet, all we are offered is 790mg of ingredients per day!
Also bear in mind that this product has two jobs as well, it is also a fat burner and our favorite fat burner is way over this figure too.
Let’s dig deep and see what we can find that may be remotely useful in our quest for shredded gains.
I never trust any test booster that includes tribulus.
This is because it has never been proven in reliable studies from reputable sources to increase testosterone levels.
In each and every case, the legend proceeds the facts. Tribulus does not increase testosterone levels.
‘…that neither a daily lower (10 mg/kg) nor a higher dose of TT (20 mg/kg) taken orally had an effect on blood testosterone, androstenedione or luteinizing hormone following a 4 week period of supplementation…’ 
The benefits of fenugreek seed are no well known by most people but studies are unearthing many positive effects on testosterone levels and fat loss.
Fenugreek has the ability to limited aromatase which prevents the break down of testosterone. Plus, it can help manage diabetes.
Best effects are from doses of around 500 – 600mg. This only contains 100mg. 
My issue with maca is that while it does not increase testosterone levels, it does help increase the libido. So what’s wrong with that you may ask?
Because it is merely mimicking the effects of an increased level of testosterone. More testosterone equals a higher libido.
So, if you are feeling more frisky, you probably think this testosterone booster really is increasing testosterone.
It just seems a little dishonest to me, and, at the end of the day, not actually increasing testosterone.
‘…Serum testosterone and oestradiol levels were not different in men treated with Maca and in those treated with placebo…’ 
Ashwagandha is particularly effective for increasing testosterone and increasing fertility in men who are suffering from infertility issues.
It is also able to help reduce cortisol levels that would affect testosterone production in men who are not infertile.
So, as a result, this is a good ingredient to have included in any test booster. 
Methyl D-aspartic Acid (NMDA)
It looks like and sounds like the revered d-aspartic acid, but it isn’t.
Studies have resulted in no evidence supporting the theory that NMDA can raise testosterone levels.
Nor were there any reductions of estrogen or prolactin levels when combined with weight training.
With damning evidence against the use of NMDA I am quite unsure why Modern Man would include this. 
Caffeine is the worlds most popular psychoactive drug. Yep, billions play the tune to caffeine, just like the masses did to opiate dens and gin palaces in Victorian London.
Caffeine is great for increasing energy and focus. These are the most notable effects.
However, it can also help burn additional calories by increasing your body temperature. This is called thermogenesis.
Your body expends more calories trying to regulate body temperature.
Caffeine works particularly well when combined with green tea and capsicum. 
N-Phenethyl Dimethylamine (Eria jarensis)
There is very little available about eria jarensis other than it being a synthetic drug that was initially produced to relieve nasal congestion.
It is supposed to be a stimulant and as such is used by people looking to lose weight and improve their athleticism.
However, initial research has a dim view of this and there’s no related evidence. 
4 pills per day is the best way to avoid peaks and troughs of the ingredients to take full effect.
So this doesn’t score too well on this aspect.
If we break this down there’s 3 effective ingredients.
2 for testosterone production and 1 for fat burning.
For increasing testosterone we have:
For fat burning there’s:
But, as we have noted, fenugreek can aid fat loss too. So a great ingredient for this particular product which is trying to cover both bases. Although at just 100mg it is far below the recommended dose.
Ashwagandha seems to have the most effects in men who are infertile, although it does reduce cortisol which benefits men who are fertile.
However, the amount here is a very low 50mg and we are usually finding it at 300mg in other boosters on the market and it is reported that the optimal dose is 6g. 
So looking at this, with so few proven ingredients there’s not a great deal here to stimulate both testosterone production or your metabolism for fat burn.
It is missing so much compared to other products and this is not going to be effective at all, just like the modern man in a forest without an espresso or cinnamon pastry.
It has 2 critical jobs to do and it is lacking in either one.
Just a couple of proven ingredients for each job is not considered enough nor good value.
Especially when these ingredients are horrifically under-dosed to be effective.
The dosing schedule is mediocre and the overall daily dose of ingredients is extremely substandard to the point that this will be completely ineffective.
The saving grace of this product is the presence of Fenugreek and Caffeine but by themselves it isn’t going to produce and effective tool to blitz fat or increase testosterone levels for strength and size increases.
Not when the doses are substandard when cross referenced to the amounts required in the studies.
This whole product is lacking in research driven ingredients such as Vitamin D3, D-Aspartic Acid, B12, B6, K2, Oyster, Magnesium and Zinc to name a few and these are all included in the best testosterone boosters out there.
On the other foot it is also lacking in Cayenne peppers, Glucomannan, Green Tea or Chronium.
Overall this is woeful, like the modern man.
