Quick Review on the Force Factor Alpha King Ingredients
AlphaFen® – Not to be confused with the Alphafen used for treating arthritic pain, Force Factor Alpha King’s AlphaFen® is a branded form of Fenugreek that’s standardized for *sapogenins. This herb is capable of boosting “free” testosterone by blocking aromatase and 5-alpha-reductase.
Tribulus Terrestris – This herb is historically great for boosting libido. Specifically for men with low T (i.e., men over the age of 30), Tribulus has shown capable of boosting both total and “free” testosterone. However, it’s ineffective for young and healthy men.
Black Maca – Maca root can come in many shapes and sizes. According to research, the black variety was found to be best for sperm whereas the red ones were capable of reducing prostate weight. Generally though, Maca isn’t an effective testosterone booster.
DIM – This is a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables (e.g., Spinach) that shares a similar molecular structure and metabolic pathway with estrogen. This allows it to disrupt estrogen’s pathways and theoretically lower its levels. Research on this is a bit complicated though but at 100 mg, Force Factor Alpha King hits the sweet spot.
Force Factor Alpha King Directions
Each serving of Alpha King consists of just 1 capsule. As instructed by Force Factor, we are simply to take 1 capsule daily with breakfast.
Force Factor Alpha King Review (My Analysis)
Force Factor isn’t new to testosterone boosters. In fact, I’ve already written reviews for Force Factor’s Test X180, Test X180 Ignite, and Test X180 Alpha. Compared to these supplements, however, Alpha King is a lot more simple. Particularly, it uses significantly less ingredients and it’s also non-proprietary. Personally, I think this direction Force Factor Alpha King is taking is a step towards the better.
Another thing that sets Alpha King apart from its Force Factor peers is its Fenugreek. Where the others use the tried and true Testofen®, Alpha King turns to a different brand in AlphaFen®. In a way, this might be good because it’s standardized specifically for sapogenins instead of general saponins. Hypothetically, this might make it a better bodybuilding herb.
The problem with AlphaFen® though is that it doesn’t specify to what percentage it’s being standardized for. To gauge how potent it can be, this is crucial information. Regardless, Fenugreek is great for male health as it boosts “free” testosterone, muscle strength and growth, as well as libido.
Sadly, apart from Fenugreek, the other ingredients in Force Factor Alpha King aren’t as reliable for testosterone. DIM might lower estrogen but its research is still largely conflicting. Tribulus works if you’re already low on T but, for young athletes? Nada. Black Maca can also get you better sperm but it’s no good for test.
Does it Work?
As far as testosterone boosting goes, Force Factor Alpha King is nowhere near as powerful as the best testosterone supplements in the market. Albeit weak, it still seems capable of boosting “free” testosterone while also lowering estrogen and DHT.
Moreover, the way I see it, Force Factor Alpha King is best used by men who’re 30 years old and above because this demographic is where low test and problems with sexual health generally start to kick in. With the ingredients Force Factor Alpha King is using, it can help replenish low testosterone, improve sperm health, and especially bolster declining libido.
- Non-proprietary – Unlike other Force Factor testosterone products, Alpha King is an open book with its dosages.
- Safe – Aside from maybe smelling like maple syrup (thanks, Fenugreek), the natural ingredients in Force Factor Alpha King aren’t likely to get you any risky side effects.
- Feel’s good – With amplified sex drive looking like its best benefit, you’re likely going to feel a lot more invigorated
- AlphaFen® – Personally, I have more confidence in Testofen® as a testosterone booster but AlphaFen’s sapogenins might make it better for building muscle
- AlphaFen® – Yup, it’s both good and bad. Potentially great for muscles but I would’ve liked it better had they been more specific with their standards
- Weak T boosts – If you want Prime level testosterone, Force Factor Alpha King might not be your best choice.
- Dirty capsules – There’s too much artificial colourings here for my taste
- Expensive – Prices are generally the same regardless if you buy from GNC, Amazon, or the Force Factor website. At $69.99 per bottle, each serving is going to cost you $2.33.
The Bottom Line
For something that’s named after top dogs, Force Factor Alpha King is surprisingly a weak testosterone booster. Weak doesn’t mean ineffective though. The promised “free” testosterone boosts are their albeit minimal. Also, it looks great for libido and with AlphaFen’s sapogenins, the muscle gains can be a reality, too.
