Quick Take: You probably already know that supplements can be stacked to make each of them work better. For example, stacking whey protein with pre/post-workout products help both men and women get the most of their bodybuilding exercises. In the testosterone boosting industry, there’s… AnthroPlex? It’s a men’s vitality formula that’s made to make another, superior formula even better. Let’s review this supplement and see how well it goes.
- AnthroPlex is a product of Infowars that’s advertised to be “the perfect pair to Super Male Vitality“
- It’s not designed to be a standalone testosterone booster so don’t do it
- Has a potent version of Zinc but its meager dosage makes it highly likely to be ineffective
- Also has a proprietary blend of 4 ingredients that’re given in plain forms but still may boost libido
- Customer reviews are a bit questionable. More on this later.
- Available to buy online and in retail stores including Amazon and the Infowars website. I can’t seem to find it on GNC though.
|Zinc Orotate||1 mg|
|Proprietary Blend||710 mg|
|Horny Goat Weed (leaf), Tribulus Terrestris (fruit), Tongkat Ali – Longjack (root), Fulvic Powder|
AnthroPlex’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Zinc Orotate – Zinc is a mineral that’s required as a raw material if and when our bodies convert cholesterol into testosterone. Obviously, this is an essential mineral for healthy levels of test. AnthroPlex provides a premium and easily absorbed form in Orotate but at just 1 mg, there’s very little for our bodies to absorb.
Horny Goat Weed – Mimics the effects of testosterone with its most prominent benefit being increased libido. It does not, however, boost test.
- Tribulus Terrestris -Popular in testosterone products for reportedly being a powerful testosterone booster. In truth though, it’s more of a libido booster than a strong supplement for T.
- Tongkat Ali – Primarily used for elevating sex drive but it does seem to improve the ratio between testosterone and the stress hormone cortisol.
- Fulvic Powder – This is the most bioactive compound in Shilajit which is a gooey substance that seeps out of rocks. It potentially elevates testosterone, improves sperm, and probably even delays muscle fatigue through increased ATP production.
Each serving of AnthroPlex consists of only 1 capsule and as instructed by Infowars, we are to take 1 capsule (1 serving) in the morning and another one at night for a total of 2 capsules per day.
Taking a look at the AnthroPlex formula, I have to agree that this shouldn’t be taken alone because honestly, it’s quite weak. To be fair, it does have a solid mix of man-enhancing ingredients but it’s how Infowars uses these that’s the issue.
First of all, Zinc is an essential mineral for supporting healthy testosterone and male health in general. Orotate is one of (if not THE) best absorbed forms of Zinc, too. However, at this dosage, it’s not going to do much. Heck, it most probably won’t do anything. AT ALL.
Secondly, the rest of the ingredients here are trapped inside a prop blend and prop blends are never a good thing because they hide the specific dosages of their ingredients. To be fair, all 4 ingredients in the blend do have the potential to increase male vitality. Specifically, Horny Goat Weed, Tribulus Terrestris, and Tongkat Ali are pretty good supplements for elevating libido while Fulvic Powder and Tongkat Ali offer both testosterone boosts and ergogenic benefits that may help bolster the growth of your muscles.
The issue here, however, is that all these ingredients seem to be supplied in their plain, powdered forms. This makes it hard to absorb and therefore, increasing the dosage requirement for them to be effective. Speaking of dosages, AnthroPlex does seem to have an adequate total dose for at least some of them to show their benefits but without knowing the actual dosage for each specific ingredient, there’s no way I can tell how effective AnthroPlex can truly be.
Does it Work?
Maybe but not as a standalone supplement. Compared to the best testosterone boosters in the market, AnthroPlex doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. It does have a solid group of ingredients but in terms of quality, quantity, and strategy, it’s weak.
To be fair, it still may improve vitality to a bare minimum. In particular, given that the top ingredients in the AnthroPlex prop blend are primarily libido boosters, the area of male vitality you’ll most probably see improvements in is sex.
- Vegan friendly – It’s an all natural stack that uses only the gifts given to us by Mother Nature. Its capsules are literally vegetarian, too!
I’m not actually too sure if this is a good thing. On the Infowars website, AnthroPlex currently has a whopping 677 customer reviews and a lot of them actually give great feedback. On the other hand, Amazon currently only has 13. I don’t know about you but this smells fishy. Regardless, the Amazon reviews and ratings for AnthroPlex are still generally positive. I haven’t read complaints of major side effects either.
- Prop blend – Yeah, this sucks. Show your dosages, damn it!
- Quality – Aside from the Zinc Orotate, everything else is given in their plain, hard-to-absorb forms
- Zinc Orotate – Speaking of Zinc Orotate, WTH is 1 mg going to do? Nothing. That’s what.
The Bottom Line
If you intend to take AnthroPlex as a standalone testosterone booster, don’t. That’s not what it was designed to be. It’s a supplement that’s meant to make an already effective supplement work supposedly work so much better. In that sense, AnthroPlex does have its merits. That said, if you do decide to buy it, that’s on you. If it were up to me though, I’d just save my hard-earned cash and look for something better.
