MuscleTech Test HD Super Elite Testosterone Booster Review
Will The Testosterone Booster Supplement From MuscleTech Work?
MuscleTech Test HD Super Elite Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
Monday looks set for some deadlifting.
I did a bit of a gym session on Saturday partially hungover, that said I still managed to throw the weights around and ensure that my workout was good, unlike the pre workout which I was testing.
However, much of Saturday was sat in front of my computer looking for a car as I have got the 3 month auto itch.
Yes, it is a terrible affliction. It means many an hour is spent scrawling through sites looking for a car I have had in mind for a while for me to the completely blow the budget I had settled on and buy something that literally takes my interest within the past 2 hours.
Hence now I have a Honda Civic Type-R. This particular car had barely crossed my mind previously. If it had, it was purely for the engineering aspect to it rather than desire.
Some may say this behavior is erratic. It is. It is also exciting and I like exciting.
I also like more testosterone because of the wider health benefits it brings to the table, not least the increased libido.
Increased strength and muscle is handy too. However, a strong libido sort of pips them to the post I think.
Mind you, my girlfriend is so hot the mere thought of her is enough…
So with deadlifts in mind for Monday and not an erection (I am at work afterall) I am wanting a heightened level of testosterone to ensure that my strength levels are optimal.
Not only that, having just eaten a bar of Dairy Milk chocolate I want to ensure my fat levels are kept in check too.
I normally use TestoFuel because it offers the best number of proven and effective testosterone stimulating ingredients, so it will be interesting to see how this testosterone booster from MuscleTech compares.
Zinc – A Zinc deficiency is associated with abnormally low testosterone concentrations. Found in all of the best testosterone boosters.
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.
DIM (Diindolylmethane) – Diindolylmethane appears to promote a healthy balance of testosterone in the body and is found in vegetables such as broccoli.
Cruciferous vegetables which contain high levels of DIM such as broccoli are eaten by many professional athletes such as rugby league players for their benefits.
Pedalium Murex – Preliminary evidence suggests that Pedalium could increase testosterone and act as an aphrodisiac, although there are no human studies currently.
The exact bioactives in Pedalium are equally unknown, and all that can be said is that many of the bioactivities of Pedalium are somewhat similar to Tribulus, which is bad news.
A dose of 32mg per kg of body weight is probably recommended but there is a real lack of testing.
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.
Also helps raise testosterone levels.
Emblica Officinalis (Amla) – There is not enough evidence to recommend Amla for any particular purpose, it appears to possess a wide spectrum of potential benefits that require further research and may contribute to general well being and longevity.
Grape – Grapes, or the chemicals within them, especially oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPCs), have been touted as powerful antioxidants yet in humans there is a real lack of clear evidence that there are any real benefits.
BioPerine (Piper nigrum) – The extract of piperine, called BioPerine® in the patented form, has been clinically tested in the United States.
BioPerine® significantly enhances the bioavailability of various supplement nutrients through increased absorption.
3 pills per day – this amounts to a dismal 285.3mg of ingredients daily which is a terrible amount for a testosterone booster supplement.
The only real thing to note is that we are instructed to take 3 pills once daily, it may be more beneficial to spread the 3 pills out evenly throughout the coarse of the day to continually supply the body with a trickle of the ingredients.
Additionally, you’re body will excrete any additional nutrients it doesn’t require at the time of ingestion, therefore if you give it a large hit, some of it may be wasted.
Zinc is a great and commonly found ingredient within many and certainly the best testosterone booster supplements for its widely acknowledged ability to maintain optimal testosterone levels.
Ashwagandha appears to only have a positive effect on testosterone levels if the user is actually infertile.
Boron is a good ingredient that is able to reduce inflammation and also stimulate testosterone.
Then there is DIM as found in broccoli.
This acts as a estrogen regulator rather than a testosterone booster. So while it offers some benefits it is not going to directly stimulate more testosterone production.
This is a really low dosed supplement, much lower than most others I have ever tested.
Plus having only two ingredients that will stimulate testosterone, unless of course you are infertile and Ashwagandha will help.
Yet, that still only leaves us with 3 ingredients and then the estrogen regulator.
So, all-in-all, 4 beneficial ingredients from a total of 7 is not good. It is barely over 50%.
Why there’s a real lack of proven ingredients baffles me, it is absolutely senseless.
MuscleTech Test HD Super Elite Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
This supplement barely offers any ingredients that are proven to stimulate testosterone production.
In fact, only 2 are going to be effective in all men. 1 may be effective if you are part of the 12% global male population that is infertile.
Then it barely offers any ingredient mass either, its less than 400mg per daily dose spread over 3 pills it makes me wonder what exactly is bulking the pills up.
Whatever is used as a bulking agent is not beneficial to testosterone levels anyway.
Overall the whole product is further lacking research driven ingredients such as Vitamin D3, B12, K2, Oyster, D-Aspartic Acid, Magnesium, B6, fENUGREEK and even Panax Ginseng to name a few and these are all included in the best testosterone boosters out there.
