Sport Nutrition & Vitamins Testosterone Booster Review
Sport Nutrition & Vitamins Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
My ceiling collapsed in my house last night.
Not because of my gainz, moreso because a pipe must be leaking somewhere from the bath.
Eitherway, it’s another, irritating and boring job to have fixed when all I want to do is hit the gym.
That’s the problem with life, you think you are on track and good to go and another curve ball hits you right in the chops.
As a result, I consider my lifting time as precious as life itself. There’s always something that can take your attention away from being able to lift weights and better yourself.
That’s why I always look to see what I can supplement to help maximize my performance.
Every bit of extra weight pushed, carried or lifted is a struggle which becomes harder to maintain when life throws its little events at you.
Therefore, with this bottle of testosterone booster pills sat staring at me I am keen to see just how well this can perform and help my progress in the gym…or plastering my ceiling.
Calcium – Results show that training results in increased testosterone levels in athletes and that the increase is greater if accompanied by calcium supplementation.
However, calcium supplements are also known to increase artery plaque which in the long term can cause cardiovascular problems.
Read more about that, here.
This is where transparency becomes severely clouded as we are hit with a proprietary blend which means we are not entirely sure of the ingredient profile breakdown:
Nettle Root – Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
Tribulus – Once marveled, now known to have no effect on testosterone levels, by now supplement manufacturers should really let go. Avoid like a medieval plague if you are looking for muscular gainz.
It also failed to provide any benefit hen tested on a bunch of professional Australian rugby players.
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.
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.
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.
Boron – Boron is great for the older lifter or those doing high weight low rep work as it helps to reduce inflammation, something that is found in PrimeMale, which I am a fan of.
Also helps raise testosterone levels.
Orchic Substance – Claimed to help stimulate testosterone in men. However, there is currently no evidence to support this claim.
Sarsaparilla – Athletes sometimes use sarsaparilla as a steroid for performance enhancement. Some supplement makers claim that chemicals (sterols) in sarsaparilla can be converted to anabolic steroids like testosterone.
Yet, this is a false claim.
Just the 1 tablet per day which isn’t entirely the best dosing strategy.
It is recommended that we have at least 4 tablets spread evenly across the day, as per the best testosterone booster on the market.
When you have more doses throughout the day it ensures your body always has nutrients to work with.
Each daily serving only equates to a low 1102mg.
This is much lower than effective products such as Prime Male.
Effects & Benefits:
There’s 2 ingredients found in this testosterone booster which can have a positive impact.
These are ingredients such as:
Nettle does not stimulate testosterone but it can help reduce inflammation which in turn can inhibit testosterone levels. Too much inflammation can also cause chronic disease such as obesity.
Any product that consists of a proprietary blend should be avoided due to the the non disclosure of the actual ingredient content. Therefore we have no idea how much of each ingredient is included.
It could be 10mg, 100mg or even just trace amounts.
Bare in mind that this supplement also provides a low daily serving too.
Then, much of the ingredients do not actually help to stimulate testosterone.
This equates to a further 6 ingredients that offer no benefit to increase muscle mass, strength, fat loss, libido or even mood.
Not even the lauded Tribulus which appears to have risen infamously from mere anecdote rather than science.
Also, if taken for long periods of time, supplementation of Calcium can cause artery plaque which can then lead to cardiovascular problems such as a heart attack.
Sport Nutrition & Vitamins Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
So what do we have here?
A low dosed testosterone booster that only contains 2 ingredients that can help stimulate testosterone.
Even so, 1 of those 2 can cause problems if used long term.
Then there’s the proprietary blend plus 6 further ingredients that are not proven to offer any testosterone stimulation at all.
This will leave you feeling very short changed and offer’s very little else in term of benefit or effectiveness.
Take a look at what works to maximize your workouts.
