Nutrabolics Aggro Testosterone Booster and Fat Burner Review // Are We Happy With The Dual Action Results?
Who wants a bit of aggro, eh?
Aggro is what I know as a a drunken brawl outside a bar at 1am and, while the gorilla like warbling and chest beating is representative of high testosterone levels it is not a name that I would commonly associate with a testosterone supplement.
Either way, this is eye catching and almost futurist looking, there’s definitively hints on the movie Tron present.
Unlike many testosterone boosters this is also combined with fat burning ingredients to hopefully provide the complete offering anyone would desire.
However, like all things that try to be a bit too convenient, like Wash n Go shampoo, will it just not be too ineffective? We (I) find out for you…
Ingredients: The Science
Berberine – Has shown to be effective at reducing fat but only in unhealthy people. There’s also complications around interactions with other drugs. The daily amount required is a minimum of 900mg per day to be taken in 3 separate doses.
Cinnulin (Cinnamomum burmannii) – pharmacological studies have shown anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-thrombotic, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, dental plaque formation and periodontal disease inhibitory, glycosylation inhibitory, and radical scavenging activities.
C. burmanni also possess therapeutic effects on rheumatic arthralgia, pain and blood stasis due to traumatic injury, traumatic hemorrhage, sprain, pains in bones and muscles, rheumatic arthritis, soft tissue contusion, collateral flow activating, blood circulation promoting, and repercussive effects.
D-Aspartate, DAA – D-aspartic acid is one of two forms of the amino acid aspartic acid. The other form is L-aspartate.
The benefits of D-AA are specific to it, and do not extend to aspartic acid or L-aspartate.
D-AA can be used as a testosterone booster for infertile men, and by athletes as a temporary booster.
Elevated testosterone levels only last a week to a week and a half in healthy men, with testosterone returning to normal afterward.
D-AA works in the central brain region to cause a release of hormones, such as luteinizing hormone, follicle-stimulating hormone, and growth hormone.
Importantly, unlike some pro-hormones and steroids, it does not raise estrogen levels.
Alpha Lipoic Acid – Alpha-lipoic acid is an antioxidant made by the body. It is found in every cell, where it helps turn glucose into energy.
Antioxidants attack “free radicals,” waste products created when the body turns food into energy. Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells, making it harder for the body to fight off infections.
L-Dopa (Macuna Pruriens) – This is actually good for treating people with Parkinsons. There’s a mixed bag of results for testosterone but look mainly positive.
Results have shown an increase in testosterone levels in infertile men, however, results are very limited for fertile men.
It is effective to reduce cortisol levels – high stress levels can harm testosterone production.
Tongkat Ali – Eurycoma (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 in humans, although some very limited evidence in animals.
Deer Velvet Antler – generally derived from deer antlers, its use comes from ancient Chinese medical practices.
It doesn’t appear to affect hormone production in humans.
Chromium – Chromium supplements are promoted as being helpful in building muscle and burning fat and in helping the body use carbohydrates.
This has not been proven and features in our list of ingredients to avoid.
Magnesium – Research into magnesium supplementation also increased testosterone production in men.
Zinc – Studies show that this has a link with healthy testosterone production.
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.
Bitter Melon – Has been shown to reduce blood sugar levels in some studies but the it transpires these studies were flawed and not reliable.
It is recommended that we take 8 pills per day! Great, however, we are instructed to take all at once.
It is much more effective to constantly provide the body with a continuous stream of nutrients throughout the day, thus we prefer pills spread evenly throughout the day as with the best products.
We do get 5715.4mg of ingredients though which is very good.
There are 5 testosterone boosting ingredients present here.
You have the solid ZMA foundation present along with the excellent D-Aspartic Acid which is great for stimulating testosterone levels.
There’s also Mucuna Pruriens which seems to be effective at raising testosterone levels if you are infertile.
It is also a reducer of cortisol which is detrimental to test levels.
There’s only 2 ingredients here that will be useful for burning for or at least helpful in the process.
There’s an abundance of ingredients that have little to no scientific proof behind them.
Only 7 of the 12 ingredients are going to offer any benefits. There’s more for stimulating testosterone that reducing fat so it is not a well balanced supplement.
One of the fat burning ingredients is only effective when used by unhealthy people, a much larger dose than what is provided here is required and it can have a negative impact with any medication that you may be using.
While it has a huge amount of D-Aspartic Acid it is still is missing ingredients such as D3, Fenugreek and even K2.
It does astound me that so many supplements are still being filled with unproven ingredients time after time and this is without exception.
The dose of 8 pills to be taken at once is not optimal either, we should have them spread out the day.
What makes me laugh about this product is that on the packaging there is a warning that users should speak to their sanctioning authority to ensure it is legal to use due to the androgenic effects.
This is not a steroid.
There’s 5 good ingredients here to stimulate testosterone and 2 useful ingredients to help with cutting fat.
However, all of the best testosterone boosters have a plethora or fully active ingredients in correct doses.
As such they work effectively, this offers some good ones but omits too many as well. I
ngredients such as Vitamin D3, Asian Ginseng or K2 should be available to produce a great testosterone booster product.
Likewise, to burn fat this omits the basics of Green Tea, Caffeine and even Cayenne.
The dosing is not quite right either, combined with the inclusion of a potentially harmful ingredient plus a host of ineffective ones this isn’t going to be at the top of my Christmas list.
