Zeo Nutrition Test:Force Testosterone Booster Review
Zeo Nutrition Test Force Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
Today is the first day in the gym for me this week.
I have noticed good muscular and strength gainz since moving much closer to work and this is partly down to a more consistent workout regime, more rest and less stress.
I really did not appreciate just how stressed I was when I lived a 2 hour drive away from work and I didn’t appreciate just how badly it affected my gym progress.
I am not saying the incremental increases I am lifting have been stratospheric but little and often is progress all the same.
This is a good opportunity to use a test booster as well. Particularly as since as recently as 5 days ago I was finding it difficult to maintain a solid, strong erection because of using prohormones.
I felt dead or just rather numb downstairs which was freaking me out, particularly since I am in a new relationship and she is fucking hot.
While I could get a hard on and have sex it wasn’t full bore strength and no matter how much I told myself it will return and also explained to her that it will pass it still clung to the back of my mind that I may be fucked forever.
Therefore a good testosterone booster is imperative for raising your natural test levels post steroid cycle.
Considering this is called TEST:FORCE I can only assume it will be effective…
Zinc Oxide – 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.
What is strange here is that they use Zinc Oxide, I have looked at some research on rats which would suggest that supplementation of Zinc Oxide can cause immune toxicity.
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.
However, you will require 5g per day alone!
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.
There is evidence for better erections and an increase in testosterone production for infertile men.
Eleutherococcus Senticosus (Siberian Ginseng) – Whilst there is evidence that this can actually help treat herpes and reduce the severity of cold and flu, there is very little solid evidence to reliably suggest this helps increase testosterone or increase strength.
Now we are in to the murky, dark and secretive depths of a proprietary blend.
This means we have no idea of this blend how much of each ingredient is included. Just that traces might be available.
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. But this is a false claim.
Pumpkin Seed – Pumpkin seeds are great for Magnesium which is good for testosterone production.
Muira Puama – No real scholarly studies or evidence available from reliable sources that would suggest that this stimulates testosterone production.
This may help with improving sexual function when combined with Ginkgo but other than that there’s not much to go on.
Nettle – Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
Cayenne Pepper – The hot and spicy taste of cayenne pepper comes from capsaicin, a compound found in many hot peppers. Capsaicin is known to boost metabolism, causing the body to produce extra heat and burn more calories for fuel. This is found in our favorite fat burner Instant Knockout.
Licorice – May have many various uses, the main being to sooth heartburn and inflamed skin, but for the rest there’s really a lack of evidence to deem it useful.
Astragalus – Bit of an all-rounder, this antioxidant helps protect the body against various stresses, including physical, mental, or emotional stress.
Avena Sativa (Oat) – This is a type of oat that has been seen to raise luteinzing hormones in the body, which are a precursor to testosterone and growth hormone.
Not a great deal of real, heavy evidence if anything at all but the hallmarks of something good are there. A bit of a gamble. In plenty of T-Boosters that do not work.
Catauba – Used to heighten sexual arousal and treat male sexual performance problems.
Oyster Powder – Research of this mollusc has shown that is aids your body to increase testosterone.
Orchic Substance – Claimed to help stimulate testosterone in men. However, there is currently no evidence to support this claim.
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.
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.
The daily dose is just 2 capsules a day which is not 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.
This way your body has a constant trickle of the ingredients to work with in order to stimulate testosterone.
A daily serving is an adequate 2273mg. It is not up there with better products such as Prime Male.
Effects & Benefits:
In this testosterone booster supplement 10 ingredients can offer benefit to us to stimulate an increase in our test levels.
These are in the form of:
- Zinc Oxide
- Panax Ginseng
Yet, before we get too excited, not all is rosy.
This is because Boron and Nettle will not directly stimulate testosterone.
Their role is to protect testosterone levels from being affected by rising levels of inflammation.
L-Arginine opens the blood vessels which is good for transporting oxygen and getting rid of waste products. However, 5000mg of Arginine alone is required to be effective.
Cayenne doesn’t affect testosterone levels. It helps burn fat by raising body heat and the metabolism which you can read more about, here.
Astragalus doesn’t raise or help stimulate testosterone production either, it is an anti-oxidant. No bad thing, but we want soaring testosterone for getting bigger and stronger or just eradicating that limp dick.
Catauba helps with sexual performance…bit of a relief.
This leaves just Zinc, Panax Ginseng, Pumpkin and Oyster to help stimulate testosterone.
The problem is, even with Zinc in this form, it can actually increase immune toxicity. This isn’t great news.
Much of this supplement is made up of a proprietary blend which immediately maked me distrust a product.
Why would they hide the exact amounts of each ingredient included unless there was something ghastly to hide? Makes no sense to me, everything should be transparent.
Tribulus obviously has its unwanted presence, which makes me wonder why it is ever present considering tests and studies prove it is NOT effective at raising testosterone levels.
There’s also Tongkat Ali, Siberian Ginseng, Maca, Sarsaparilla, Muira, Licorice, Avena Sativa and Orchic which are just not proven to help stimulate testosterone at all.
As already mentioned, the type of Zinc included in this product can cause immune toxicity plus the under-dosed amount of L-Arginne which will offer little benefit below 5000mg.
Cayenne pepper is good for helping you shed fat, however, I want to increase testosterone levels…it seems the inclusion of this is purely to help mimic the effects of higher test levels.
Of the total 19 ingredients only 4 will help stimulate testosterone levels. That is only 21% can you imagine if you were only 21% effective at your job? You would get the can.
Zeo Nutrition Test Force Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
I want and need the best testosterone booster on the market.
Not just to help me become bigger and stronger while losing a bit of fat but to sort out any erection problems I may face if I ever do steroids or Prohormones.
A good testosterone booster will include 100% benefical and effective ingredients to deliver the biggest hit so your body can produce more testosterone.
This, offers a mere 21% of effective ingredients, however, it gets worse…
This product consists of a secretive proprietary blend. Therefore, some of these ingredients that can offer benefit may only be available in trace amounts, which isn’t going to help us much.
Overall this is not going to give you the results you and I both need.
Take a look at what works to maximize your workouts.
