Zeus 2.0 is the sequel test-booster to Fusion Bodybuilding’s original Zeus. It contains just three active ingredients: Fenugreek, Rhodiola Rosea, and BioPerine…
Fenugreek is one of the most popular Test-boosting ingredients, and has been studied fairly extensively for this purpose. We discuss the effects of Fenugreek in this article, but basically it may be used to increase Testosterone levels and enhance libido, though not with 100% reliability.
Zeus 2.0 contains 350mg of Fenugreek standardized for 175mg Fenusides (active compound).
Rhodiola Rosea has been studied for a variety of purposes. It contains adaptogenic properties that give it a wide variety of implciations, from performance enhancement to stress-reduction.
One human trial, to determine a possible role in erectile dysfunction, found that subjects who consumed 150-200mg Rhodiola Rosea daily for three months experienced heightened sexual function.
Whether this was a direct result of increased testosterone is unknown, but given the preliminary support from the animal studies, it is certainly a possibility.
Zeus 2.0 contains 100mg of Rhodiola Rosea, standardized for 4mg Rosavin and 1mg Salidroside (active compounds).
BioPerine is the brand name form of Black Pepper Extract which is standardized for Piperine, a compound that can increase the absorption of other nutrients. Zeus 2.0 contains 2mg of BioPerine.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
Zeus 2.0 may be moderately effective for boosting Testosterone, although the magnitude of effect may vary from person to person depending on initial Testosterone levels. Individuals with lower Test are more likely to experience a noticeable increase, although Zeus 2.0 can certainly be used to maintain consistently high Test levels in athletes and bodybuilders who already have pretty high Test.
