TestoTEK VS Steel Hard: My Analysis
To start this comparison, let me just say that both TestoTEK and Steel Hard offer solid testosterone boosts while also enhancing several areas of male health like libido, physical fitness, and several others.
Naturally, like any other supplement, their benefits are also dependent on their choice of ingredients. That being said, both TestoTEK and Steel Hard use some of today’s most effective natural T boosters and they use a few of the same stuff, too. To give you an idea, here’s a quick list of their shared ingredients as well as what they do for our favorite manly hormone:
- Vitamin D3 – Research suggests that higher levels of this sunshine vitamin are associated with higher levels of testosterone
- Vitamin B6 – As with the previous vitamin, levels of vitamin B6 seem to be directly proportional to levels of T
- Zinc – Essential for testosterone synthesis. Zinc also prevents the test decline after a tough workout.
- Fenugreek – Capable of decreasing levels of estrogen and DHT while boosting testosterone, libido, and physical performance
- Ginseng – TestoTEK uses the Siberian kind while Steel Hard uses the Asian (Panax) counterpart. Both are well known for their anti-stress and anti-fatigue benefits but panax ginseng might be the only one with test boosting potential.
Now, both of them clearly did well in choosing their ingredients. Well, at least for the above five. Nonetheless, the real comparison begins with how they use these ingredients along with the rest of their respective formulas. So, let’s take a closer look.
TESTOTEK FEATURES WHAT MAY BE THE MOST POWERFUL T BOOSTING AMINO ACID BUT HAS A FEW CRUCIAL FLAWS WITH A COUPLE OF ITS OTHER INGREDIENTS
Headlining the TestoTEK formula is D Aspartic Acid (DAA) – an amino acid capable of boosting testosterone by as much as 42% in just 12 days. Clearly, that’s one powerful T booster. TestoTEK gave the amino acid a solid 2000 mg dose, too. So, that’s cool.
This product isn’t just about DAA, however, as it also has other notable testosterone boosters including mucuna pruriens, vitamin D, vitamin B6, vitamin K, and oyster.
Moreover, TestoTEK also has non-T boosting ingredients. Now, I know that doesn’t sound too good but what I like about them is that they they complement the elevated testosterone by supporting other areas of male health.
To cut the long story short, the entire TestoTEK formula offers solid testosterone boosts, elevated libido, improved physical performance, potentially healthier prostates, and protection against stress and fatigue.
However, TestoTEK isn’t without flaw. It technically also has zinc and fenugreek but they respectively have weak forms and poor dosages. Had TestoTEK paid more attention to these two, I think this supplement could have been significantly better.
STEEL HARD RELIES MOSTLY ON PREMIUM HERBS FOR ITS T BOOSTS BUT THE REST OF ITS FORMULA, IN MY OPINION, COMPLEMENT THE HERBS VERY WELL
The way I see it, Steel Hard doesn’t have a single ingredient with a poor dose which means all of them are capable of working. Obviously, that’s a good thing. However, like TestoTEK, Steel Hard has a few ingredients that aren’t necessarily in their best forms.
Specifically, it uses cheap versions of zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B6. However, like I said, they do have adequate dosages which means they’re still going to work but you won’t be absorbing them as efficiently. Furthermore, when combined, these nutrients form the ZMA trio – a legendary sports supplement that supports high testosterone, physical performance, and recovery. Again, that’s a good thing.
As a testosterone booster, Steel Hard doesn’t use DAA (a shame, I know) but it does use a bunch of branded herbs (e.g. Testofen®, KSM-66®, and LJ100®) that have been research-backed for testosterone. Other notable T boosters include vitamin D, panax ginseng, and boron.
Furthermore, those same ingredients act on other areas of male health, too. In particular, you get better sleep, lower cortisol, lower estrogen, better recovery, and improved physical performance. Altogether, these benefits make Steel Hard great for bodybuilding. Also, ALL the herbs here boost libido so this product is great for sex, too.
TestoTEK VS Steel Hard Summary
- Gets most of its testosterone boosting power from DAA
- DAA’s power is complemented by T boosters and non-T boosters which, ultimately, may improve sex life, physique, and increase energy levels
- Better zinc and more fenugreek would’ve catapulted this stack to higher heights
- $69.99 per bottle on the official TestoTEK website
- Testofen®, KSM-66®, and LJ100® are its most notable ingredients. They all have scientific evidence to prove their testosterone boosting potential
- Has several benefits that make it easier to build a better body. All the herbs are libido boosters.
- Zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B6 could’ve used better forms but their sheer combination (ZMA) sort of makes up for it
- $55.95 per bottle on the official SteelFit website
Conclusion: Which is Better?
Overall, I think Steel Hard just has the better formula — its design is better, its effects feel stronger, and its dosages are heavier. Again, I do realize that its ZMA could use more bioavailable forms but generally, the entire formula seems top-notch, too. If you’re a dude looking for a natural testosterone booster that you can use to fuel your sex and bodybuilding needs, I say this is worth a try.
Meanwhile, TestoTEK isn’t that far behind. In fact, I thought this was a close call especially considering it uses D Aspartic Acid. What really made this supplement inferior, in my opinion, is its cheap zinc and essentially useless fenugreek. Nonetheless, it still is a solid testosterone booster that can improve several aspects of male health.
