PNI TESTOVOL TEST MATRIX Testosterone Booster Review
PNI TESTOVOL TEST MATRIX Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
I am now increasing my lifts gradually. I have more time to spend working out and more time to sleep and rest which I have noticed making an impression on my performance in the gym.
I feel bigger and fuller too, plus with my cycling to work I also feel and look more cut, not to mention the improved cardiovascular fitness.
However, this is all well and good, but deep down, I want to and I am sure you want to lift even more.
Or just benefit from a better mood, more stamina, increased libido and even fat loss.
Yes, I am saying all of this having just eaten a donut…the fat piece of shit that I am.
However, along with my increased weight lifting I do want to increase testosterone levels, I want to be the best I can be while only using something natural, safe and legal.
A testosterone booster is the natural solution, but not all are equal. There’s great, proven testosterone boosters such as Prime Male and then there’s some absolute heinous products that can barely be called anything other than a scam.
This attractive and bright red bottle could fall in to either camp, although first impressions do look professional and of a good quality.
Let’s see what it can do…
Nettle Root – Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
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.
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.
A dose of 2000-3000mg is required.
Arimistane (Androst 3,5-dien-7, 17-dione) – Theoretically may be able to increase testosterone levels.
However, as no human or animal interventions have been conducted with Androsta-3,5-diene-7,17-dione we don’t actually know.
Vitamin D – A great Testosterone boosting vitamin that must be taken advantage of to trigger further production of Testosterone in your body.
However, there are two types of Vitamin D. There’s calciferol (vita
min D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) – we are only interested in cholecalciferol which is D3; this is the type our skin synthesizes from the sun and becomes a hormone which results in the increases in our testosterone.
Research by the US Library of Medicine has shown that testosterone productions are increased with Vitamin D3 supplementation.
This is a key ingredient in TestoFuel.
Prunella Vulgaris – It has been shown that the polysaccharides isolated from P. vulgaris have marked immune stimulatory effects, which may bring about the anti-microbial effects of P. vulgaris.
Euonymus Alatus – Used to increase blood flow but there’s no human evidence to support its use.
Take 3 capsules daily.
The best testosterone boosters out there recommend that the capsules are taken over the curse of the day to ensure your body gets a constant trickle of the ingredients.
Overall we are provided with a daily dose of 3859.2mg which is a good, solid amount.
Effects & Benefits:
It is great to see both D-Aspartic Acid and D3. These 2 ingredients are both proven to stimulate more testosterone production.
Then there’s Nettle; Nettle doesn’t actually increase testosterone levels but it can help reduce inflammation which can inhibit healthy testosterone.
The daily dose of nearly 4000mg is excellent, however…
While there is a big daily dose, due to this being a secretive proprietary blend we have no idea if that 3859.2mg is actually the ingredients or whether there’s a lot of bulking agent and just trace amounts of the ingredients listed.
This is important, because the DAA alone needs to be at least 2000mg to be effective. Anything less makes its inclusion irrelevant.
Plus, who wants to pay $69.99 for a product that could just be a bulking agent and very little else?!
It is also important to remember that while we have the potential benefits of DAA and D3, Nettle doesn’t stimulate more testosterone product and the remaining ingredients are not proven to offer any benefit at all!
That is a shoddy offering.
So of the 6 ingredients, 2 can offer testosterone boosting effects on the basis that they are dosed correctly and this is something we cannot establish.
PNI TESTOVOL TEST MATRIX Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
What doe all of this mean then?
Well, just 2 ingredients available that are able to increase testosterone levels is not greatly inspiring, regardless of how good they can be.
So while this is at least something to write home about we are then hit with a sticking point.
The product is made up of a proprietary blend and DAA at least is dose dependent, yet we are not at liberty to see how much of the D3 or DAA is included.
That seems a little suspect to me. Why wouldn’t they be transparent unless something was being hidden for a reason.
Then we only have one further ingredient that can help and that is Nettle which can reduce inflammation.
These rest offer nothing of any benefit here in terms of testosterone increases.
As a result this would be a much better supplement if it contained the following ingredients which are sadly omitted:
I personally would give this a wide birth, save your money ($69.99), and buy something effective.
