My USN Hardcore Series 19-Anabol Testo Booster Review
19 Anabol from USN’s Hardcore Series looks to differentiate itself from the usual ZMA crowd by including a number of additional ingredients.
But, are they proven to be effective?

19 Anabol First Look
After the excess of the weekend, I didn’t feel too clever yesterday and when I returned home on my bicycle in clothes still damp from the torrential rain in the morning, cycling against a freezing headwind I started to question my sanity.
So, when I had reached my house to then immediately walk 4 miles to collect my car from the shop, I knew by then I had truly lost my marbles and probably all of my gains with so much cardio action.
So, as I walked through the projects smelling the weed being smoked by naughty youths feeling as if my body was disintegrating before my very own eyes I wondered why I hadn’t just stayed in my house to hit the deadlifts.
Well, we actually needed the car plus I am too tight to pay for a taxi and I will hit the deadlifts tonight.
Luckily as I reached for the mail this morning, a little surprise arrived (well I had bought it so I wasn’t overly surprised).
I feel that my strength and muscle mass has suffered, as a result, I am continuously on the search for a natural test booster that can better the results given by those in the top 3.
So, this little bottle from USN’s Hardcore Series looks as if it may help me reach my goals of gain heaven.
However, there are other reasons for increasing natural T levels…
Having a higher level of natural testosterone benefits in more way that just becoming jacked.
It has an effect on:
- Fat levels
- Bone composition
- Cardiovascular health
- Lean muscle mass
I would normally take TestoFuel which has seen me make some great gains in the past, not to mention sending my sex drive through the roof after I had finished my cycle of prohormones ages ago.
Who are USN?
In a weird turn of events, when I typed ‘USN’ in to a very popular search engine as I am doing now, I get 3 separate landing pages for USN.
Either way, without even clicking on them, I am reading that USN have been established over 20 years. That is reassuring.
I am also told that they offer only premium products to support our challenges and to help us reach our goals.
USN are also very popular across a number of online retailers as well as traditional brick and mortar stores.
However, they don’s just sell whey protein and protein bars, they also reel off a range of USN clothing. Importantly though, for those looking for a good deal there’s USN bundles to take advantage of and probably numerous USN discount codes, particularly if you are a student.
I am quite familiar with USN already having used different products that they offer including USN protein diet fuel, USN anabolic protein and Testo 2000.
Importantly, USN are a global outfit with offices in Africa, Australia, UK, Europe and the USA.
I often like to look up the location of the head office to see whether it holds any relevance.
However, USN bucks the trend of some supplement manufacturers.
It is located very close to a pub and a couple of restaurants – possibly to fuel those cheat meals!
So, if you were hoping that they maybe nestled in amongst a hive of medical research, sports nutrition and scientific development you are going to be sorely disappointed.
USN 19 Anabol Testo Ingredients
Oysters are rich in zinc, and this contributes to their aphrodisiac effects. A lack of zinc can cause sexual dysfunction symptoms. 
Zinc is found in the best natural test booster’s.
As a B vitamin, B6 cannot be stored by the body, we must replenish our levels.
As such, we need to ensure that we are consuming enough of this nutrient, especially if you are looking to increase your natural testosterone levels, as per the positive findings from research. 
That is because it helps regulate estrogen production while benefiting other areas of your health. 
Studies have demonstrated that 4 weeks of magnesium supplementation will increase total and free testosterone levels in active and sedentary men. 
Black Pepper / Piper Nigrum (BioPerine)
However, its talent lies in its ability to improve absorption of the other nutrients.
Therefore, it helps you body get more benefit from them, and in turn making it more effective. 
It is particularly effective when supplemented alongside curcumin.
Research in to fenugreek suggests many health benefits.
And this fenugreek testosterone study shows that it can increase anabolic and androgenic activity. 
Moreover, it can also increase libido. 
Avena Sativa (Oat)
It is proven that avena sativa can increase testosterone secretion in men. However, it is not fully known how this actually happens. 
It is thought, although not entirely confirmed, that avena stimulates luteinizing hormone which is required for healthy function of the testes in men.
Ecdysterone is similar in structure to the male hormone testosterone, but there’s no evidence that it works like testosterone in people.
Unfortunately there is no evidence from the few studies available that can demonstrate Ecdysterone has any positive effect on muscle building or physical performance. 
This is made synthetically from soy in a laboratory. It seems it is best used to help treat weak bones that may be a result of alack of sunshine. 
There’s a notion that it may be used to help increase metabolism, which may help you cut fat, but I’m finding it difficult to see any reputable sources that can prove it.
Is 19 Anabol a Steroid?
I don’t want to disappoint you, but it is not a steroid even though Ecdysterone is similar in structure to testosterone, there is no proof that it has any similar effects.
The label instructs us to have up to 4 capsules per day.
It is always recommended that you 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.
Additionally, if your body receives an overload of ingredients at once, it will not utilize anything it doesn’t require at the time which can lead to waste.
Each daily serving equates to just over 1284mg which is a low amount when compared to what we find in effective testosterone boosters such as Prime Male.
However, in terms of ZMA products, this is about right and actually marginally better than most.
There’s the obligatory ingredients available here such as B6, Magnesium and Zinc.
These three make up the ZMA element of the supplement.
These three ingredients are proven to help towards ensuring your testosterone levels are maintained to a healthy and usable levels.
Fenugreek is also included, again, this is a proven and effective ingredient found in many test boosters.
Avena sativa also appears to be of use to help increase luteinizing hormone which in turn stimulates more testosterone secretion.
Bioperine is added to help the absorption of the nutrients available.
We then have 5-Methyl-7-Methoxy Isoflavone, this seems to be able to reduce inflammation and could possibly reduce the spread of cancer cells.
It’s not totally confirmed though.
7-isopropoxyisoflavone can help ease the pain experienced from low bone density and alleviate the problem of low bone density.
However, this is exactly what an increased level of testosterone does. So, in a way, this is mimicking the effects of a higher level of T.

B6 is dosed a bit low compared to other ZMA supplements.
20-hydroxy ecdysone supposedly offers effects similar to anabolic steroids, yet this is to be fully confirmed.
Then there is the other ingredients that have briefly been mentioned with long, funny and difficult to pronounce names…
Well, these deserve another mention.
7-isopropoxyisoflavone offers great bone density benefits which is brilliant, but as already stated that is exactly what increased levels of testosterone do. Testosterone increase bone density.
5-Methyl-7-Methoxy Isoflavone may offer blood fat and liver function benefits while reducing inflammation…just like testosterone would.
So, in effect, it could be suggested that these ingredients are just mimicking the effects of increased testosterone, not actually increasing testosterone so we can reap the benefits.
This is like offering chocolate flavored candy rather than actual chocolate.
19 Anabol Testo Side Effects
Fortunately it seems there is very little of concern contained in this testosterone booster from USN.
Generally speaking, you will be okay and there’s little risk taking this supplement.
My USN Hardcore Series 19-Anabol Testo Booster Review Conclusion
This is not a bad product.
As ZMA supplements go, this offers a bit more than the usual suspects so is worth adding to your stack of supplements.
However, there’s a few additions, that while they seem to offer benefits, they’re not actually stimulating an increase in testosterone production.
That’s where this lacks.
It could include other, proven ingredients known to encourage more testosterone being produced rather than attempting to mimic increased T levels.
Therefore, it does not offer the full breadth of potential when you consider testosterone boosters such as TestoFuel which I use offers the following, proven ingredients that are known to stimulate testosterone:
- D-Aspartic Acid
- Vitamin D3
- Vitamin K2
With these key ingredients missing, this supplement is not going to offer the most benefits that other testosterone boosters can.
Yet, on the other hand it is not free of beneficial effects and does offer more than the bog standard ZMA product, even if the B6 is dosed on the lower side of the spectrum.
Take a look at what works to maximize your workouts.
