Dietary supplements don’t always have the best reputations, and it’s usually a case of a few rotten apples ruining it for the rest. The key to finding a good, healthy supplement is looking for ingredients that are already produced by your body or ingredients that come from plants and other natural resources. The more natural vitamins and minerals packed in, the better the punch. Nugenix is one of the brands that follow this formula.
What Is Nugenix?
Developed by a team of researchers in Boston, Nugenix is a dietary supplement designed to increase testosterone levels in men. Their target market is males aged 35 years and older, but younger can take it too. The company has five products under its brand umbrella; the Free Testosterone Booster, the Prostate Health Support, PM-ZMA (a nighttime testosterone booster), the Nugenix Ultimate, and the Estro-regulator.
Each product targets a different level of testosterone, with the Ultimate being the strongest mix designed specifically for men looking for serious support in their active and sexual lifestyle. The Testosterone Booster is their most popular product. It contains eight key ingredients that have been tested in labs to produce maximum results.
How This Supplement Could Help You
As with anything good that we enjoy in our younger years, the aging process takes a toll on testosterone levels. The effects of this drop seeps into many areas – from feelings of fatigue and lethargy, to weakness, depression, loss of muscle mass, hair loss, an increase in body fat, lack of focus and a decreased sex drive. 95% of testosterone is produced in the pituitary and to produce this, the body needs a wide range of vitamins and minerals.
Nugenix uses several natural ingredients to provide the body with these vitamins, which in turn assists the pituitary glands in producing more testosterone. Essentially, the supplement gives the body a boost by providing it with the tools it needs to do the work.
Ingredients And Benefits
The products contain safe and natural ingredients such as vitamin B6, B12, Zinc, fenugreek seed extract, tribulusterrestris, and i-citrulline malate. A study showed that the extract from fenugreek seeds, known as Testofen, increased libido in men by 25%.
The ingredients in Nugenix are said to increase sex drive, sexual stamina, and sperm production, improve mood, maintain muscle mass, and reduce body fat percentage. An eight-week study done in California showed an increase in sex drive, but didn’t make any noticeable impact on weight and waistlines. However, for the product to really be effective, a healthy, active lifestyle is essential.
The reviews of results are generally mixed. While most people have reported feeling no adverse side-effects, a good portion felt no different after a month of using the product. Most people, however, have said that after taking it for about two weeks the first difference they noticed was an increase in energy and muscle development followed closely by an increased desire for sex and more sexual stamina.
The positive results mostly seem to come from older men – around 50 and older. Using combination products – such as the Testosterone Booster and the Estro-Refugulator together seems to yield the best results.
In terms of pricing, it’s a little more expensive than other supplements, but this is simply because it works so well. The supplements need to be taken daily – sometimes three times a day – on an empty stomach.
The Testosterone Booster costs $69.99 for the bottle and if you want to use the Estro-Regulator with it, then it will set you back an additional $39.99. For the no nonsense, hardcore Ultimate bottle, you’ll need to fork out $89.99. The Prostate Health Support and PM-ZMA clock in at $34.99 and $39.99 respectively.
