PURETEST Testosterone Booster Review
I always love seeing products with audacious claims, especially when the packaging looks pretty shit. The marketing blurb exclaims that this is the strongest testosterone booster available. Now, I am hoping that they have spent all of their last finances developing this to be exactly what they say it is and then have had to scrimp and dig out the few cents in their mom’s PT Cruiser’s ash tray for the packaging and label because that’s exactly what it looks like happened.
For our in-depth ingredients guide checkout:
So 6 ingredients make up this ‘strongest testosterone booster’. Let’s hope they’re the best ingredients on the planet then!
Whhhhaaaaaaaaattt?! It states there’s a proprietary blend. For fuck sake. We all know a proprietary blend is just used to mask the exact weights and measures for each ingredient listed and it is the biggest scam in the supplement industry. But wait…the ingredients are individually listed with their weights…what’s going on?
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.
Maca Root – This Peruvian strain of ginseng is great for lifting libido and mood, however, when it comes to raising testosterone levels it has no effect at all. No significant influences on testosterone in any tested demographic I’m afraid.
L-Arginine – This is found in many pre workout supplements or products designed to make you more vascular. L-Arginine opens up the blood vessels and arteries to assist with blood flow, nothing really to do with testosterone but may assist with any impotency issues that are not helping you attain that hot chick in the gym who is 15 years your junior.
Panex Ginseng – This form of Ginseng is the most highly researched. There’s lots of evidence which suggest cognitive function, mood and immunity is increased, however, although there is evidence for better erections and an increase in testosterone production for infertile men there is also evidence contradictory evidence also.
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.
Green Tea – well known to have many powerful health benefits. Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat. One study found that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in people who were overweight and moderately obese. Some researchers think that substances in green tea known as catechins are responsible for the herb’s fat-burning effect. Green tea extract is found in many a good fat burning supplement.
3 capsules per day – this amounts to a pretty dire 1600mg of ingredients daily, this isn’t the lowest content we have reviewed in a testosterone booster, however, there’s way more than that of (proven) D-Aspartic Acid in TestoFuel alone! 3 pills isn’t the ideal either, a dose of 4 pills per day is better to avoid peaks and troughs of the little amount of ingredients to take full effect.
Take a look at our Top 3 boosters for something effective.
There’s 1600mg of ingredients here and only 6 ingredients, we normally see 8 or 9 in a really effective testosterone booster, additionally, in a really effective testosterone booster we see active and proven ingredients that stimulate more testosterone production not a load of fucking shit.
The most effective ingredient present is green tea and that helps burn fat not stimulate testosterone. None of the other ingredients are proven to do anything in order to raise testosterone levels.
So it maybe the strongest piece of shit available on the market, but it isn’t the strongest testosterone booster on the market.
Well, as a testosterone booster this is going to be completely ineffectual. As a fat burner it may do something but very little as green tea alone will not provide the amazing results you crave.
It is worth reiterating that in our top 3 rated testosterone boosters they have around 8 solid ingredients which all have proof backing their usefulness and they will contain more D-Aspartic Acid than this product has in it, period.
Unfortunately this is another product labelled ‘testosterone booster’ which is anything but. However, as long as people do not do their thorough research in to the ingredients and dosing there will always be a market for products of this ilk.
Take a look at what works and don’t fall foul of spurious claims.
