I never thought I’d be one to try one of those ‘Testosterone Booster’ supplements, but recently a friend who’s been trying to avoid testosterone replacement therapy gave me a sample of a new supplement called MaxGenics Testosterone Booster, so I decided to try it out.
MaxGenics Testosterone Booster Review
I’ll tell you about some of my early results with MaxGenics in just a bit. But first, here’s a little back-story on me…
As a 57 year old man, I’ve seen my sex drive and performance steadily decline for a few years now. And I’m embarassed to admit it, but it’s starting to become an issue in my relationship with my wife. My erections aren’t nearly as hard as they were 10 years ago, for starters. And I’m just not as interested in sex as I once was.
Back in the day, say 10 or 15 years ago, just LOOKING at a pretty woman would get me a little bit aroused. Now? Well, let’s just say the fire ain’t burning quite as hot as it once was…
(And my wife? Well, I’m happy to say, even after three kids, she still looks as good as ever. And she still needs a good, strong, ‘servicing’ in the bedroom, if you know what I mean – something I’m just not able to do quite as often as I once was.)
My body has changed, too.
The ‘ol spare tire has been growing every year, and that lean, strong, manly physique I had in my early twenties is a distant memory.
When I get out of the shower, I look in the mirror and sometimes I barely recognize myself – I’m a soft, chubby, weak-looking shadow of the man I used to be!
My BIGGEST Problem…
My poor performance in the bedroom and my soft, out-of-shape body – these things are a big deal to me, of course… but they PALE in comparison to what’s been bothering me the most…
I JUST DON’T FEEL LIKE A REAL MAN ANYMORE!
That passion, drive and zest for life that carried me thorugh my teens, 20s, 30s, and even most of my 40s – that ability to POWER through obstacles, achieve my goals and create the life I want – it’s just not there like it once was.
(I blame my lifestyle for a lot of this: After almost 30 years working my way up the corporate ladder, the long hours, lack of exercise, and steady diet of fast food have each taken their tool on my health – ballooning my waistline and draining my energy.)
“Is this all my life is?”
“What happened to that strong, powerful, potent MAN I used to be?”
What’s a guy to do?
Well, I HAD to do SOMETHING – so I started to do some research…
The Cause of the Problem
As I’m sure you’ve heard, the hormone testosterone is that special ingredient in our bodies that makes us MEN.
When our bodies have enough testosterone, we will also have…
- - A strong libido/sex drive
- - Rigid erections and long-lasting sexual stamina
- - More muscle mass w/ less body fat
- - Energy, drive, and stamina for work, sports, and life
Sounds a lot like what I’ve been missing, right?
As it turns out, a man’s testosterone levels decrease steadily after around age 30 – which means that my levels have been decreasing for around 20 years…
(explains a lot – my low sex drive, lack of performance, and loss of muscle mass)
But if this ONE hormone is responsible for ALL THAT, then getting the sex life, body, and performance I’m looking for should be as easy as just adding MORE testosterone into my body…
So I did the logical thing and looked into testosterone replacement therapy with a doctor. BUT after considering the potential side effects (increased risk of prostate cancer, man boob growth, testicle shrinkage), plus what might happen if I decided to stop treatment (potential for complete impotence and total shutdown of my body’s natural testosterone production, among others), I decided against it.
I wanted to see if I could give myself a boost WITHOUT risking all those scary risks that can come along with artificial hormone replacement.
Some Proven Alternatives
After starting to look for other options, I realized that there were a few very promising natural alternatives to testosterone replacement therapy – each with a strong clinical track record of helping men achieve the results I wanted: more sexual desire, improved performance, and increased lean muscle mass.
First, The Obvious Stuff…
So, I started to look at some research studies that showed something each of us has known all along:
Do things like:
- Get enough sleep
- eat good, healthy foods,
- do strength training and vigorous exercise regularly
…and your sex drive, performance, body, and energy will all improve.
Pretty common-sense advice, right?
But, what I found next was VERY interesting – that there is an easy, natural way to MULTIPLY these effects, without ANY added effort.
How to naturally support and enhance your body’s Testosterone production – the easy way
The search for the provervbial ‘Fountain of Youth’ has gone on for centuries – men have searched for a way to maintain the vigor, strength and vitality of a young man, past their 20s and 30s and into their 40s, 50s 60s and beyond.
And through trial and error, a few scattered cultures around the world have discovered and perfected the use of certain medicinal plants to do just this…
…resulting in reports of men in their 80s, or even 90s and older:
- Performing Vigorous exercise and hard labor – and regularly outperforming 20 and 30 year olds
- Fathering multiple children even after their 90th birthdays
- Having sex several times per day
Again, these are men IN THEIR 80s, 90s or EVEN OLDER we’re talking about here…
Pretty remarkable, right?
But now, thanks to modern clinical research, the same natural thearpies these ‘elderly’ super-studs swear by for maintaining their ‘young man power’ can be fully and objectively studied and evaluated.
Allowing us to see what actually works, and what’s just a hoax.
So I thought I’d have a look and see what modern science has to say about a few of these ancient, supposedly age-defying treatments.
Let’s take a look…
This powerhouse root extract is from the jungles of Malaysia. For generations, tribesmen have carefully cultivated, harvested, and ingested it to maintain vigorous libido and rock-hard erections well past 85 or 90 years of age.
Whereas adding synthetic testosterone to the body (as is the case with taking anabolic steroids) will shut down your body’s natural ‘T’ production, Tongkat Ali has a much gentler, safer approach.
The compounds in this root extract stimulate the Leydig’s Cells in your testicles, shifting your body’s natural testosterone production into overdrive – meaning you get the benefits of increased testosterone production (increased sex drive and performance, more muscle mass, greater energy, etc.), without the risks associated with actual synthetic testosterone therapy (as we discussed above – MANY).
At proper doses, Tongkat Ali has been shown definitively in clinical studies to increase free testosterone, boost male libido, and maximize sexual performance.
This was the aphrodisiac of choice for Peru’s ancient, but highly-evolved Inca civilization. Over the centuries, medicine men perfected the exact cultivation techniques to create Maca of highest potency – giving this plant a well-deserved reputation on par with today’s ‘little blue pill’ for its effectiveness at giving men rock-hard erections and all-night stamina.
Extensive studies have shown that Maca does indeed improve sexual functioning and desire. Additionally, this root extract is now also known as a powerful energy enhancer for athletic performance.
Chinese medicine, a 3000+ year old healing tradition based on EXTENSIVE trial and error and real-world results, has been fine-tuning the use of this potent herb for literally thousands of years. As one of this traditions most dependable aphrodisiac and performance enhancing herbs, it has developed a strong following among Chinese common people and leaders alike, from Confuscious to Mao.
Epimedium enhances relaxation in smooth muscle tissue, which is the exact process required to get a raging, rock-rock hard erection. As such it acts like an herbal ‘v’ pill to help amplify your member’s rigidity and duration. Numerous studies conducted by western researchers have shown that the herb does indeed improve sexual functioning.
Shipwrecked Vikings in Iceland were pleased to discover this root’s potent energy and libido boosting effects when they encountered it growing from the island’s icy tundra. It’s been used successfully in folk medicine since, and recent studies have validated its effectiveness.
Rhodiola Rosea works on two fronts to increase sex drive, performance, and overall quality of life. First, the extract’s natural compounds fight fatigue and the sex-drive killing effects of stress by neutralizing the stress hormone cortisol. Second, the plant acts as a general tonic inside the body to support increased levels of testosterone.
So I try these herbs…
Each of these herbs is fairly well known by savvy supplement users – and if you look around online, you’ll see that some people have had quite a bit of success with each of them.
But around a month ago a reader sent me an advance supply of the new supplement MaxGenics – which has all four of these ingredients (plus several other well-researched libido and testosterone enhancing compounds).
So I gave it a try.
My Experience With MaxGenics
The first three days on MaxGenics, I didn’t feel much of anything.
But on the fourth day, my wife and I had some really great, spontaneous sex. Afterwards she told me how I felt significantly ‘fuller’ and harder inside of her, and that I was more ‘vigorous’ than usual.
A day later, after work, I felt like I had a bit of excess energy to burn and dusted off my old gym membership (haven’t been there in a while!). I gotta tell you, it felt really good to get my body moving again.
After my workout, full of endorphins – I went home, planning on watching TV.
As I laid there on the couch next to my wife, I felt that old, familiar warmth ‘down there’ – and had the impulse to just ‘take’ her… So I did! (she happily complied…)
This was about a week ago, and these kinds of experiences have been happening more and more frequently.
It feels like something is changing inside my body slowly, but very noticeably. I feel a little stronger, a little more focused, a little more energetic, and (dare I say) a little hornier, every day.
Will I re-order MaxGenics?
I have to say I am impressed with these gentle changes that have been happening to my body since I started taking MaxGenics.
I looked into the product a little more and saw that it is produced right here in the US by a FDA-approved, pharmaceutical-grade laboratory with the strictest purity standards around.
(very important in this day of basically unregulated supplements – most of the time you don’t even know WHAT you’re getting in the pills you’re taking)
