Neovicta Alpha Testosterone Booster Review
Now the rugby season is over, this gives me a bit more free time to concentrate on my weightlifting and strength which has been suffering considering I can barely move for a week after each game. Therefore, I am looking for something to give me that edge and get me chatting on all cylinders. Hence we delve in to the depths of testosterone boosters again.
This looks a bit childish, a bit like something from a cartoon to give to a cartoon, I guess their aim was to make it look ‘Hulk’ like, instead it looks like it has been designed by an amateur in their bedroom on MS Paint.
Take a look at our Top 3 boosters for something effective.
My expectations of this product are already low, but now, my thoughts are qualified with the inclusion of 3 proprietary blends.
So as I have discussed many times before, a proprietary blend allows the manufacturer to only list what ingredient is present in the blend but not the actual amount, it is basically a farce.
So let’s have a look at the ingredients found in these blends.
Indoe-3carbinol – Sounds like a chemical compound, it almost sounds like a steroid. It is not. It is at best able to suppress estrogen, however, there’s very little research to prove this. It is found in vegetables such as cauliflower, kale and broccoli.
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.
Resveratrol – Could have a range of benefits from cancer fighting, reducing inflammation to cardiovascular health but evidence is minimal if not unfounded. When taken orally, resveratrol is well absorbed by humans, but its bioavailability is relatively low because it is rapidly metabolized and eliminated. So a waste of time.
Fenugreek – this is a proven ingredient as found in our benchmark product; Testofuel. There’s a dose of 225mg here. Fenugreek is also found in quite a few curry dishes so always a good reason to grab a curry and beer as long as you don’t drink the beer and eat the curry.
Longjack (Eurycoma Longifolia) – 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.
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.
3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran (Stinging Nettle) – Again, a big complicated looking chemical compound being used to describe something much simpler and common. Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
Milk Thistle – A great ingredient used to flush out and protect the liver as well as help repair cells but more required for anyone doing a course or Prohormones or oral anabolic steroids, not really warranted for this product unless you are a heavy drinker as well.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine – Great for people with liver, heart and kidney problems but no evidence for boosting testosterone.
For our in-depth ingredients guide checkout:
Only 2 pills to be taken once per day. This is just before bed time. As well as a poor ingredient profile with 3 proprietary blends this dose will do little to be effective at all. Each dose is a paltry 1125mg per day, that is well short of anything in our top 3 boosters. Ideally you want a testosterone booster providing 4 servings throughout the day, this way you can ensure you are getting all of the required nutrients evenly and constantly topped up.
Very poor if any effect. A low daily dose combined with only 1 actual proven testosterone boosting ingredient will do very little for your test levels.
As stated this is a proprietary blend so immediately we are shrouded in secrecy over the real content of each ingredients. This is a big negative and I would urge anyone to avoid products with such a blend. The ingredients provided are very much unproven to do anything we would really like and there is absolutely no requirement to have a ‘liver support’ function unless you are taking a methylated prohormone.
I am afraid this is one of the worst testosterone boosters that we’ve trialed. A poor choice of ingredients, low dose, a blend of unknown quantities leave us nonplussed and would advise against spending you hard earned cash on this product.
