Super Test is one of those rare testosterone booster supplements that contains enough ingredients so that its list can be added to the Library of Congress. Yet, with all of the experience I’ve gained through the years in dissecting and determining the usefulness and effectiveness of boosters, more does not always equal better.
There are three (3) key factors that a testosterone booster needs to address in order to be considered effective. The first is, obviously, being able to help the body produce more testosterone naturally. There are a number of different ingredients that can achieve that. The second is to keep the extra free testosterone in the body from being converted into other hormones, such as estrogen or DHT. The third is to allow your body to settle down at night so that it can heal after a tough workout.
How Does Super Test Stack Up?
With its laundry list of ingredients, you might just assume that Super Test is, well … super. While it will certainly supply more than enough nutrients to help your body increase its production of testosterone, there seems to be too much. Your body only needs a certain level of nutrients to perform at its peak.
Just because a vitamin supplement contains 1000% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin C doesn’t mean that your body is going to use that much. So don’t be fooled by the high number of ingredients. Instead, pay attention to the other factors, such as whether it addresses the conversion issue or helps you sleep at night. This product is not as impressive in any of these areas as it may seem at first glance.
Most testosterone boosters will require that you cycle on and off. Cycling is the process of taking the supplement for a period of time and then going without for a set amount of time. For Super Test, the cycling period is 8 weeks on and 4 weeks off.
Super Test delivers a 45 day supply in each bottle, which works out to about a month and a half. It costs about $50, so it’s one of the more expensive boosters on the market. Some men complain about the price, especially compared to other boosters, so it should deliver on its claims and help you build muscle.
I have not seen or heard enough good things about Super Test to rate this one more than average. It appears to certainly help some men and women gain levels of testosterone, but that’s not enough to be able to get a great workout and add solid muscle.
The estrogen ‘blockers’ that are listed in the ingredients (Japanese knotweed extract, Diindolylmethane, and calcium D-glucarate) have not been proven to be that effective in keeping your free testosterone from being converted to estrogen or even bound (two factors that limit muscle gain). Overall, Super Test seems to be a lot of hype for limited benefit.
