Nature’s Plus T Male Liquid Testosterone Booster Review
Nature’s Plus have been trading since the 1970’s and is of the same ilk as Irwins Naturals; looking through their website is almost like taking the plunge in to a new religion or life coaching course and I found it rather unpleasant and off putting. The website layout is not particularly good either. I know that we should not base a products performance based on looks alone, however, if that isn’t right from the start it can be the difference between success and disaster. Take the Pontiac Aztec, if you really look beneath the skin it is a useful car but no one dared try it due to the hideous looks.
It looks like something from a sex shop, a bottle of lube or some sort of amyl nitrate that you would administer in a glory hole and it just seems so out of place and context with the other products available from this company which all seem to be health products, not a prohibited substance. It just doesn’t sit right for me. It is worth noting that this particular product that I am testing came in liquid form and is a hefty size, strangely there are tablets available too. Personally I find this an odd route to go down, the bottle could be drank like soda whereas people are going to generally stick to the dose of tablets. Tablets are less messy and fit easier in to a bag too.
Vitamin C – Its antioxidant properties mean vitamin C provides neuroprotective effects and benefits for blood flow. By protecting the testes from oxidative stress, vitamin C can also preserve testosterone levels.
Vitamin E – It was also demonstrated that basal plasma testosterone and F.T.I. were increased in normal male subjects following oral vitamin E administration and the responsiveness of plasma testosterone levels to HCG was significantly higher during vitamin E administration than before administration.
Vitamin B6 – Vitamin B6 helps testosterone levels by stimulating androgen (a steroid hormone that acts as a precursor for testosterone) receptors in your body, making your testes produce testosterone. And with more testosterone comes more muscle and strength!
Magnesium – Research into magnesium supplementation also increased testosterone production in men. Magnesium is also one of the main vitamins that people in the Western World are most deficient in.
Zinc – Studies show that this has a link with healthy testosterone production.
Calcium – Results show that training results in increased testosterone levels in athletes and that the increase is greater if accompanied by calcium supplementation.
However, a recent study has warned against calcium supplementation due to the increased risk of a heart attack.
Ginseng – Asian red ginseng has been used for centuries to strengthen the immune system, boost energy, and increase longevity. In studies, ginseng has increased testosterone levels in lab animals and infertile men.
Fenugreek – It is claimed by researchers that fenugreek works to increase testosterone or androgen levels, which decrease as you age. This is found in our #1 T-Booster, Testofuel.
Rhodiola – This is a Scandinavian herb that appears to be able to significantly reduce the effects of prolonged and minor physical exhaustion that results in fatigue from preliminary evidence.
Boron – Good for inflammation of the joints and is found in our #2 T-Booster, PrimeMale.
What’s NO Good:
Selenium – No conclusive proof even when supplemented with Zinc that selenium increases testosterone levels.
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.
Tribulus – Ignore the bullshit you hear or read, it is only ever pushed by supplement companies and has never been proven by science to increase testosterone. It;s a bit like religion: no proof but is making someone somewhere a lot of money.
Turmeric – It is slightly odd to have this included. There’s not link to testosterone, it can, however, help reduce inflammation but has very poor bio-availability so a bit useless here. Good for colon inflammation and digestion though.
Garlic – Supplementation in rats has shown an increase in testosterone but no evidence in humans.
L-Histidine – No conclusive evidence of testosterone being increased with supplementation.
L-Carnitine – Assists with blood flow which can be good for erections but not for testosterone.
The ViNiTrox blend is purely for flavoring.
Find out which ingredients work and which don’t
– Testosterone boosting ingredients –
1 capful per day. This isn’t really a good dose level as it does not promote testosterone stimulation throughout the day, you just get 1 big hit of ingredients then plateau after about an hour.
On the label this, at first glance, looks like a well rounded product and in a sense, it is. There’s a wealth of good ingredients – 10 to be precise. However, the ingredient content is actually very low – just under 700mg per day compared to the like of 3000mg with products such as TestoFuel. There’s also ingredients such as Turmeric that would require additional ingredients such as BioPerine to be effective, yet BioPerine was left out of the blend. Let’s not also forget there are 7 ingredients that do not really have any place in a testosterone booster because they do not work, as such this isn’t going to have very much effect at all.
So, it does include 10 ingredients that are proven to boost testosterone production, however, not only are those particular ingredients of a low content there is also a proprietary blend which I explain more about in the video below.
There is also the inclusion of the big sinner, the Beelzebub himself – Tribulus which immediately gets my back up.
I am also not keen on the unorthodox bottle of what essentially is a like a soda and packaged a bit like an energy drink, not only is it a fucking pain in the ass to cart around it is way too easy to drink it all instead of rationing yourself to 1 capful at a time. Okay, tablets are not for everyone, but they are the best solution at present to administer a testosterone booster.
TestoFuel covers important ingredients such as D-aspartic Acid, Vitamin D3, B6, B12, K2 and has additional proven ingredients such as Fenugreek and Oyster Extract.
My Review Conclusion:
Initially it seemed out of place in the Nature’s Plus product range and it is left out in the cold from our TOP 3 T-Boosters simply because there are too may ingredients coupled with too low doses for each which leaves in ineffective. Not only that, I lost my trust in the product twice over when I learned there was a proprietary blend and Tribulus. Overall, a positive first glance of the ingredients list has eventually left me deflated and irked.
