Pure Lifestyle Products TESTO PRESTO Testosterone Booster Review
My Pure Lifestyle Products TESTO PRESTO Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
I’m about to hit the weights while simultaneously look for cars on eBay. That is my specialty.
Yes, apart from lift weight and moan about my life on here I actually look for cars on eBay that haven’t been advertised very well which will put many people off and try to win them.
It can actually take over my life and just when I think I have got a ‘keeper’ and regain my life back I start hunting again.
I’ve already lost an old SAAB that went for a ridiculously cheap figure and now I am still looking with a bit of cash weighed in on one now. Fingers crossed.
So other than cheap and shit cars, I am looking at a testosterone booster here from a company called Pure Lifestyle.
First things first, when a company is selling products under the name of Lifestyle it immediately makes me think that this is not their natural territory. They’re trying to cash in.
Secondly, why the fuck does it have a genie on the label and why does it look like it is marketed to children who watch Disney?
What the hell is going on? This is not exactly what we would expect a testosterone booster to look like.
I already have picked my top 3 testosterone boosters which perform excellently but I am always open to new products and seeing how well they can work.
So, can this kiddies multi-vitamin work? Let’s rub the lamp.
Ingredients: The Science
Horny Goat Weed – Epimedium, the suspected active component of horny goat weed, appears to act as a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, similar to some drugs used for erectile dysfunction.
It does not, however, stimulate testosterone production.
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.
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.
Hawthorn Berries – At best this ingredient may help with reducing inflammation and blood flow but there’s no concrete evidence to be found regarding increasing testosterone levels.
Every article relating to testosterone increases with Hawthorn berries is on a site wanting you to buy them.
Saw Palmetto – this fatty acid was long touted to help boost testosterone levels, but those claims turned out to be false.
It is effective in suppressing prostate growth though. So could help if you are taking steroids or Prohormones.
Tribulus – Once again, the old tribulus raises its ugly head.
The problem is that because this has been touted about for so long as a bit of a miracle plant extract used by the mysterious Eastern Bloc Olympic Athletes during the Cold War people have started to believe the hype and it is an easily recognizable ingredient the ill informed will have heard about down gym.
The issue is that it has not been scientifically proven to raise testosterone levels in any shape or form.
In fact, in studies using elite professional Australian rugby players as participants Tribulus did not produce the large gains in strength or lean muscle mass that many manufacturers claim can be experienced.
Avoid like a medieval plague if you are looking for muscular gainz.
Longjack (Eurycoma Longifolia, TongKat Ali) – 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.
Magnesium – Research into magnesium supplementation also increased testosterone production in men.
Zinc – An aphrodisiac and Testosterone Booster.
Zinc is also very important for the functioning of the enzyme, hormone, and immune systems.In very high doses, zinc can act as an aromatase inhibitor and reduce estrogen levels.
It is also a potent antioxidant and can provide benefits for prostate issues.
The recommended dose is 3 pills just before bed time.
This equates to a barely adequate 1305mg. That is poor.
That is disappointing when you consider the best testosterone boosters offer nearly 3 times that figure.
It is odd that we should have 3 pills before bed.
It is better to have at least 4 pills and for them to be taken over the course of the day to ensure that your body gets a trickle of the nutrients to work with.
Just 2 of the included ingredients are beneficial to trigger increased testosterone production. Yes, just the two.
That’s 2 of 9 which equates to a mind boggling and fairly useless 22% hit rate.
The two ingredients are the proven and effective minerals; Magnesium and Zinc.
These ingredients feature in the best testosterone boosters and ZMA products.
They’re important minerals for bodily function and are vital not just for testosterone production, however, this is our main concern.
The 2 ingredients combined make up just 230mg of the total 1305mg. This is a woeful 17%.
The math looks grim.
It is fairly clear to see that by doing some simple math that this is hardly the best and most effective testosterone booster on the market. However, from our initial impression, did we really think it would be any different?
I assumed the results would be as dismal as their graphic designs.
So, yes, there’s just 2 ingredients of 9 which are considered to be effective from scientific studies.
The overall daily dose is low too, not that it really matters when all you are feeding your body is ineffective ingredients.
However, that is not the point, we want good doses and good, strong testosterone boosting ingredients and this product is sorely lacking in both aspects.
It is also irksome to see that Tribulus has eeked its way in to yet another, yet ineffective product. There seems to be a pattern emerging…
My Pure Lifestyle Products TESTO PRESTO Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
As thought, this ‘lifestyle’ product from Pure Lifestyle Products is about making people feel better about themselves because they want to take a supplement. It’s like those characters that love to have a PT but never actually make any gains.
This is nothing more than that, they are not breaking new ground and clearly haven’t done their research.
Effective testosterone boosters should include:
Note that not one of the above ingredients are included in this product.
One other thing to note is that effective testosterone boosters contain more of each ingredient whereby a daily dose is around 3000mg.
I would give this a miss, save your money and buy something effective.
