Shredz Alpha Testosterone Booster Review
Shredz Alpha Testosterone Booster First Look:
With all of the charade surrounding Shredz and their ‘athletes’ using Photoshop to enhance their bodies, one may well be minded to steer clear of any Shredz products, and you may be right in doing so.
It is very common for sponsored athletes to be on the juice for many products, but the way Devin Physique used his Photoshop Gainz to promote a successful and drug free lifestyle, not only to mention the ‘personal’ online training and diet plans placed Shredz in a very awkward position which devalues their products massively.
Let’s see whether their testosterone booster is actually any good.
This isn’t a bad amount of ingredients, however, I am loathed to say that this contains a proprietary blend which hides the exact amount of each ingredient (apart from Zinc) listed.
Maca – Although this may increase libido and mood it does nothing for testosterone production at all. You can read more about this and other ingredients that do not work here.
Velvet Bean (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 – Like Maca, this seems to be in many testosterone booster pills, however, like Maca there is a real lack of evidence that this is to help increase testosterone levels.
Zinc – An aphrodisiac and Testosterone Booster, but it will only raise testosterone levels if the user is deficient in zinc.
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.
Fenugreek Seed (Trigonella Foenum-Graecum) – It is claimed by researchers that fenugreek works to increase testosterone or androgen levels, which decrease as you age.
Spanish Pellitory (anacyclus pyrethrum) – Preliminary studies in rats are suggesting that at a dose of 50-150mg per kg of body weight will increase testosterone levels is supplemented for 28 days.
I am 90kg so I would require at least 4500mg going up to 13500mg per day to potentially be effective.
It is a 3 pill per day recommended dose. That isn’t to bad actually although we prefer 4 pills per day to evenly spread the nutrients out and prevent massive peaks and troughs. 4 pills are the doses of our benchmark products. A daily serving is 1949.6mg.
Difficult to call. Of the 6 ingredients we have 2 ingredients that are directly associated with growth hormone (i.e the stimulation of testosterone production). There’s 1 ingredient showing promise and 3 that are listed in our esteemed list of useless ingredients. Yet there is nothing like D-Aspartic Acid or D3 present.
50% is guaranteed crap and there is a proprietary blend meaning we may have just trace amounts of fenugreek and the potentially useful Spanish Pellitory, however, what we do know is that there is less that 2000mg per day of combined ingredients. Id the Spanish Pellitory was to be of any use it would need to be over double that amount, therefore it is deemed useless in this test.
My thoughts are that with such a low amount of effective ingredients there is going to be very little to no positive outcome.
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.
Shredz Alpha Testosterone Booster Conclusion:
There’s clearly a big problem at Shredz and that is dishonesty. Dishonest representatives and dishonest products.
Why? Devin Physique isn’t half as big as he claims and neither is the booty on Paige Hathaway.
Not only that, but having a proprietary blend in a product merely masks the lack of actual ingredients it contains.
There is no reason to hide this, BMW do not hide what goes in to their car’s and McDonald’s don’t even hide what is in their food.
To prove my point further, they have included a potentially good ingredient, yet the content is hidden, this is highly convenient especially when a dose of around 4000+mg per day is required.
The low combined dose of 1949.gmg per day is bad enough and when compared to a product like TestoFuel which not only provide 2300mg of D-Aspartic Acid but also 8 other proven testosterone boosting ingredients, this product is certainly overshadowed as nothing more than a piece of trash blowing in the wind.
