TEST XTREME Hardcore Testosterone Booster Review
This is pure testosterone fueled marketing. It looks like something straight from the set of Terminator with its dark bottle and metallic graphics luring in every Cyberdene Systems Model 101 wannabe (that’s Arnie’c character in The Terminator films if you wasn’t sure). This is the complete opposite of some of the wholesome testosterone boosters we have reviewed of late. Let’s hope it is better than them too.
For our in-depth ingredients guide checkout:
There’s a nice, solid 9 ingredients here but a measily 1285mg per daily serving. This looks weak. It also looks mightily familiar with Nutrition Gen ULTA-MAX.
Let’s take a look at the ingredients in more depth:
Magnesium – By binding testosterone with protein in your bloodstream it allows far great circulation of the male hormone around your body to then be effective.
Tongkat Ali (AKA Longjack or Eurycoma Longifolia) – 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.
Tribulus Terrestris – Once regarding as the mother of all testosterone boosters, it was all crap. Further testing has ruled this out to be nothing more than helping boost libido at best. Avoid.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. This product is 20mg down from ULTRA-MAX.
Zinc – This mineral is great for boosting testosterone, it is necessary for reactions in your brain and promotes the production of both testosterone and growth hormone. The amount here is about half of that found in a good ZMA product.
3 pills per day – this amounts to a depressingly low amount of ingredients daily – this is amongst one of lowest dosing products we have tested thus far (the lowest being 1000mg). 3 pills isn’t ideal but a dose of 4 pills per day is better to avoid peaks and troughs of the ingredients to take full effect.
Take a look at our Top 3 boosters for something effective.
Only two of the listed ingredients are acknowledges to have any effect on the stimulation of testosterone production. Therefore, there is only a 22% chance this will work. Yet, if we look closer still, you will see that there is only 200mg of Magnesium and no Vitamin B6, therefore it has less magnesium and a compound missing from would be considered a normal ZMA product. Realistically you will not notice any gainz from taking this product. It is almost (shy of 20mg) a carbon copy of Ultra-Max which also appears to be a copy of BSTRx too.
This product is 78% crap and 100% worthless. Of 9 ingredients 2 would be classed as useful, there’s a woefully inept amount of ingredients for each daily dose, seems to be a copy of two other products and it costs $24.99! At least that is a bit cheaper then the other two albeit as ineffectual – it just means you waste a little less amount of money. Not exactly a winner though.
The ingredient profile is not too useful even though the product comes with a 110% money back guarantee which means either they are bankrupt or nobody can be bothered to apply for a refund.
There is a low daily dose of under 1300mg which is less than half of our #1 testosterone booster and it is missing key ingredients such as D-Aspartic Acid, D3, B6, B12, K2, Fenugreek and even Oyster extract.
