Six Star Testosterone Booster Review
Many testosterone supplements try to stand out in a crowded market with a catchy name. Six Star Nutrition fired the marketing deepartment and went for ‘Testosterone Booster’
Maybe Six Star Testosterone Booster is happy to make its mark with results. It promises Promising higher free testosterone, a better cortisol vs testosterone balance and improved training performance, let’s hope so.
One thing that is definitely striking about this product is how reasonable it is. One of the cheapest we’ve ever seen in fact, but is it value for money?
Lets get started…
How Does It Work?
At a Glance
- Calcium to support testosterone
- Rhodiola extract to improve stamina
- Boron to boost T
- Gingko to sharpen focus
We’ll look at how solid these claims are in-depth a little later on, but right now let’s cut to the chase and check out the scores…
I suppose they old saying ‘you get what you pay for’ is true here because you don’t get very much. What you do get is often under dosed or lacks clinical evidence. Boron will help your T and Rhodiola extract may give you extra stamina, but the few other ingredients are a disappointment.
Ridiculously cheap, there’s no denying it, but balanced against the overall quality of what you’re paying for it doesn’t look such a sweet deal. The price is so low you could probably afford to take a punt, but why not save your money for a booster that get results? If you want to spend $10 on disappointment, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace is around that price on Blu-ray now.
Everything to do with the manufacture of Six Star Testosterone Booster appears to be above board and priced so low you can’t accuse the company of being in it for the money. No proprietary blends either which is good, but so few ingredients – many of them unproven – presented as a winning formula, means no full marks.
Testimonials are limited to customer feedback on sites like amazon. This is never great because these reviews lack the sort of detail serious buyers need before committing. Add to that its only got 3 and a ½ stars and that’s not exactly high praise.
Six Star don’t provide much info about themselves on their website, but they have produced a professional looking range of supplements to aid all aspects of exercise and healthy living. No money back guarantees, because at so cheap it’s hardly worth it. We take issue with some formula choices and would like a little more background info, but besides that, the company appears solid.
How Do I Take It?
Six Star Testosterone Booster used to be a powder, which is a hassle to take, so it’s good they’ve made the switch to capsules.
The label suggests you take 1 serving of 2 capsules twice a day. This is not the best serving schedule we’ve ever seen. The best boosters tend to go for 3-4 servings a day, spaced out to keep active ingredients working.
No side effects have been reported and we wouldn’t expect to see any. However the label states you should not exceed the recommended dose in a 24 hour period, so better safe than sorry.
Where Can I Get Six Star Testosterone Booster?
Customers can buy a month’s supply of 60 capsules for just under $10. It’s not currently available in the UK.
Six Star Testosterone Booster Ingredients – In Detail
– At least one study did show that calcium raised T in male athletes. Those guys were taking 35mg per kg of bodyweight and here you’re only being offered 45mg. Can’t see that little having an effect.
– Rhodiola has shown in many animal studies that it is an adaptogen, allowing the body to cope better with the stress of exercise and keep going longer. 386mg is a solid amount in line with successful research and could benefit you.
– Gingko has a reputation for being able to naturally increase mental function because it increases dopamine and more recently it has been studied as an alternative treatment for erectile dysfunction. However there’s a question mark over just what Gingko’s active amount is, but it’s a safe bet that it’s not the tiny 2.7mg here. If this is all on offer to lower the stress hormone, it doesn’t seem that strong.
– Boron is a great mineral for increasing free testosterone by limiting the effectiveness of the Sex Hormone Binding Globulin protein. SHBG ties itself to testosterone and renders it unusable by the body. A 2011 study showed that an 11.6mg dose of boron was enough to increase T by 28%, but cortisol also rose which in this study, which Six Star Testosterone Booster is aiming to cut remember.
Six Star Testosterone Booster’s price made it look too good to be true and that’s what it turned out to be. Many essentials are missing, like D-Aspartic Acid and zinc. Plus there is it has zero estrogen control. Clued up guys won’t be tempted by one good T boosting ingredient and a bargain basement cost.
