Supreme Sports Enhancements AndroGenerator Review

AndroGenerator

 

AndroGenerator is Supreme Sports Enhancements’ testosterone booster. The formula is pretty simply, but is comprised of basically the other test-boosters we’ve reviewed…[Skip to the Bottom Line]

BULGARIAN TRIBULUS:

Tribulus has a well-documented history of use as an aphrodisiac and libido enhancer. Over the years, it has also gained a reputation as a Testosterone-booster, although recent research indicates otherwise.

A 2005 study, published in the “Journal of Ethnopharamcology” found that 200mg daily (60% saponin content) had no effect on Testosterone in healthy men.

These results were replicated in a 2007 study in which 450mg of Tribulus extract daily failed to influence Testosterone levels in male athletes.

Even a 2012 study, this time testing the effects of 6g of Tribulus extract on infertile men, found a less than significant trend towards increased Testosterone.

As a libido enhancer, Tribulus may provide the illusion of increased Testosterone but there is absolutely no evidence to suggest it will increase Testosterone. In fact, there is large amount of evidence to the contrary. Supreme Sports Enhancements does not disclose the exact dose of Tribulus in the AndroGenerator formula but, based on an 800mg proprietary blend, we’d estimate anywhere from 300-500mg. At this dose, AndroGenerator users will likely experience some libido enhancement, but actually increases in Testosterone are extremely unlikely.

EPIMEDIUM (STANDARDIZED TO 40% ICARIIN):

Epimedium (also known as Horny Goat Weed) is generally used as an aphrodisiac and libido enhancer, but does possess mechanisms by which it may boost Testosterone. These effects are primarily attributed to the active compound, Icariin.

A 2006 study, published in the “Asian Journal of Andrology”, found that Icariin (80mg/kg) was able to increase Testosterone roughly three times as much as the control group in chemically castrated mice. However, the dose used in this particular study would be roughly equivalent to a 200lb human consuming 1150mg pure Icariin daily. That being said, Icariin has demonstrated varying degrees of efficacy at varying doses, so it is possible that there is a slight influence at the dose present in AndroGenerator. At the very least, Icariin supplementation is generally associated with enhanced libido and sexual well-being (providing the illusion of increased Testosterone without the strength gains).

EURYCOMA LONGIFOLIA (LONGJACK):

Eurycoma Longifolia, also known as Tongkat Ali has been shown, in various studies, to increase Testosterone in male rats, but the only human studies that exist have tested the effects of Tongkat Ali in infertile men, not healthy men.

A 2010 study published in the “Asian Journal of Andrology” found that supplementation with 200mg of an extract of Eurycoma Longifolia significantly improved various indications of male fertility (in humans), though the mechanism of action was unknown.

A 2012 study published in “Andrologia: Volume 44” (the same researchers from the above mentioned human study) found that men suffering from Hypogonadism (diminishing functionality of the gonads) who were treated with a 200 mg daily dose of Eurycoma longifolia extract reached normal Testosterone levels after a 30 day period. To be fair, at the start of the study about 35% of the men were showing normal Testosterone levels, and at the end about 90% showed normal levels. Still, 35% to 90% is clearly statistically significant.

Given that Eurycoma Longifolia is listed last in the 800mg proprietary blend, we’d estimate AndroGenerator contains no more than 200mg at most, but possibly much less (100mg or so). The most likely individuals to benefit greatly from this dose would be those will low Testosterone to begin with.

THE BOTTOM LINE:

AndroGenerator contains three relatively well-known (and well-researched) ingredients, the combination of which may encourage healthy Testosterone levels, though an outright increase is far from guaranteed. Users are likely to experience some libido enhancement and aphrodisiac-like effects but, unfortunately, individuals looking to boost Testosterone greatly may be disappointed. At just over 50 cents per day, AndroGenerator is more or less competitively priced, though the same formula could be reconstructed for a little less.
