What’s going on Hermanites! Today we are going to talk about test boosters!
We have already discussed the basics of Testosterone on a previous video so if you want to learn more about how T is produced in your body, how it helps with muscle gain and how to naturally optimize your T levels.
In this article we are going to talk about natural Test Boosters and if they really work!
First of all, let me say that this article is for those of you who have normal testosterone levels and are looking for testosterone boosters as a way to maximize your gains.
If you have or suspect you have low T levels due to aging or other medical conditions, I recommend you consult with your doctor to get into a professionally monitored hormone therapy.
Now test boosters are wildly marketed these days as key supplements to help with your gains, fat loss, sex drive and anyone can find all of these amazing stories about their incredible results, but are they true or is it all hype?
Don’t worry, we have done all of the homework for you!
We’ve read articles and testimonies, but mostly importantly, we took the time to read many scientific studies to get the most accurate information to pass on to you guys!
Now we know that it would be impossible for us to evaluate every test booster out there so we looked up the most commonly used main active ingredients and did our research on those. This way, you can pretty much evaluate any product out there by looking at the ingredients on the label.
The first ingredient we are going to talk about is found in most T boosters and is called Tribulus Terrestris.
Tribulus is derived from a plant and this supplement can be found as a stand-alone supplement or as one of the ingredients of the formula. Tribulus is massively marketed as a miracle test booster and is even suggested as an aid to help people coming off of steroid cycles to help bring their T levels back to normal.
Bottom line on this one: INCONCLUSIVE!
There are NO CONCLUSIVE studies showing that Tribulus does anything for T levels.
There is one test done on male rats that showed an increase in bodyweight and sexual activity. But we also read studies performed on humans that showed no difference in testosterone levels or strength on any of the subjects tested.
DHEA is a natural steroid that is secreted by the adrenal glands and can be converted into testosterone and less desirable estrogen (remember this is the female hormone!).
There are claims that say that DHEA increases T levels and slows signs of aging which includes slowing down muscle loss. To us, the most significant piece of information we found was a 2-year study following 87 men and 57 women that showed that DHEA levels did increase but not testosterone, muscle strength or body composition.
But the real danger here is that it can increase estrogen levels with side effects such as man boobs. So the bottom line: don’t do it!
ZMA or Zinc Magnesium Aspartate
Next one on the list: ZMA or Zinc Magnesium Aspartate which is a mix of Zinc, Magnesium and vitamin B6
ZMA is believed to increase testosterone levels and strength. But we read studies that examined the anabolic effects of supplementing with ZMA and they showed no difference in body composition, strength levels or serum testosterone levels.
However, one of the studies did show higher serum zinc levels in blood and urine content but NO difference in T whatsoever!
I think the confusion here is that zinc plays an important part in regulating serum testosterone levels so you DO want to have an adequate amount of zinc in your system.
