VirMax T Review
Dropping testosterone affects us all as we age. It leads to reduced performance in the places like the gym am and bedroom, so low T often means confidence levels to match. In theory that’s where natural boosters like VirMax T from Natural Health Solutions can help. But does this particular one help in practise?
VirMax T’s main goal is restoring the older guy’s sexual performance and enjoyment. Since testosterone is the fuel which lights this fire it makes perfect sense they would attempt this with a T booster.
T also burns body fat so the products also claims to get rid of that soft middle some guys get in later life, keeping you in peak shape. If you want have great sex you’ve got to attract people to have it with, right?
It’s currently endorsed ex NBA champ, John Salley, which is really promising but let’s check out if he’s in it for the T or the fee.
VirMax T puts of a lot of its most important ingredients in a proprietary blend, meaning we can’t talk about their exact doses. This is so frustrating because active ingredients are the most important thing in any booster.
But let’s crack on anyway and see what we’ve got.
How Does It Work?
At a Glance
- Magnesium to help free testosterone
- Zinc to support T creation
- Tribulus Terrestris to supposedly boost T
- Ginseng for libido and blood flow
- Lonjack to help sex drive and erection strength
- Fenugreek to stimulate T and control blood sugars
There’s a fair bit to cover there and we’ll do just that, right after the scores
These ingredients are okay, but not spectacular. Zinc and magnesium are great for T but both could do to be a little stronger. The blend system is annoying but apart from Tribulus, nothing is unless. Fenugreek kelps T and while we’d normally criticise Lonjack for just being good for the bedroom, That’s what VirMax T is all about, It’s still missing a lot compared to top boosters though.
VirMax T is widely available so there’s lots of chance to shop around. Under $20 is great for a booster, but you have to balance the cost against the value. VirMax T isn’t the complete booster, you’re not paying as much as you could, but you’re not getting as much either.
While VirMax T checks out from a safety point of view undisclosed amounts on labels always gets you marked down in our book. Passing Tribulus off as something trials have proved it isn’t, doesn’t win any fans here either.
There is no testimonial section on the official website so we’ve to rely on customer ratings on retail sites. There are plenty of these as you can get VirMax T in loads of places. This might sound like a plus, but these are only star ratings and paragraphs, which are very mixed. So it’s impossible to get any kind of detail or consistency a testimonial section brings.
Natural Health Solutions Llc have been around since 2006 and are based in Maryland in the U.S. In their time they have developed quite a range of supplements. These include sleep aids, energy boosters and another sexual enhancement product. We couldn’t find major complaints and John Salley’s involvement lends weight. Shame they use those damn blends and Trib!
How Do I Take It?
Users need to take just one capsule a day to get the full effects of VirMax T
At least that’s their story and they’re sticking to it. We’ve no problem with single capsule servings, they’re really handy, as long as there’s a few of them. About 3 or 4 to keep ingredients topped up through the day.
There’s just no way, even if this were the best booster on the planet, one serving could sustain a hormone rise for 24 hours.
Where Can I Get VirMax T?
Customers will find VirMax T at Amazon.com. 30 servings currently cost just under $19
VirMax T Ingredients – In Detail
Zinc is vital for testosterone. Clinically low T is often linked to a lack of the mineral. This is because many building blocks for T – like luteinizing hormone, human growth hormone and follicle stimulating hormone – rely on a healthy supply. 10mg a serving would be bang on if there was 3 or 4 servings, but with just one, it’d be nice to see more.
Another good mineral choice. Up to 60% of the T in our system can be tied up by a protein called Sex Hormone Binding Globulin. This makes the good stuff unusable. So one of the best natural ways to lower the globulin count in our system, freeing up more T is magnesium. 100mg is okay, 200mg would’ve been better though
Now we come to the blend. Usually the only good part of these are laughing at the stupid names they have. VirMax T doesnt even give us that, so we just get 450mg of plain old Herbal Proprietary Blend.
This is a onetime famous T booster that many clinical trials have proved to be a dud. It’s mybe not quite the disaster it usually is because it does have mild libido boosting qualities. But even these are pretty weak and we’d still consider any amount of it in this blend a waste.
Fenugreek has the potential to be very useful here. Not only is it consider an aphrodisiac, it stimulates androgens for T and supports the hormone by controlling blood sugars. This helps regulate T which, if unbalanced can block T.
Also known as Horny Goat Weed. This is used as a traditional libido booster and some studies show it may help with erections strength. Not knowing the exact amount though, makes it difficult to say how much it might help here.
Again this is another ingredient that may not directly help T levels but does seem to improve sex drive and help erections. Since this is VirMax T’s M.O, we can’t really complain. There is still a question over dose though.
The more T you’ve got the stronger your libido is so it’s surprising this formula misses out some key male hormone boosters. Vitamin D3 & D-Aspartic Acid would’ve been great.
VirMax T is aimed at older guys so we’re surprised not to see more anti-estrogen choices. The female hormone is on the up as we age, pushing T down. Vitamin B6 and boron are just a couple of picks that can referse that
VirMax T isn’t quite a dud, but it’s certainly not full blown stud either. It’s cheap enough that it might be worth a shot, if you’re on a limited budget, but from what we’ve seen you should expect limited results.
