Pro Testosterone Review

Most men out there are probably aware of the fact that their testosterone levels shrink as they get older. It is a sad fact that many men struggle to come to grips with. Many men learn to accept the fact that their testosterone levels will decrease and that they will have to live with reduced sex drive, reduced muscle building abilities, and reduced stamina (and that’s not even close to the full list of things that you have to live with when you suffer from low testosterone). But, do men actually have to learn to live with low testosterone? The answer is no. There is actually a wide variety of remedies out there that can help men with low testosterone. The remedies range from medical procedures, to pills, to various all-natural supplements. In this particular review, we are going to be looking at a supplement called Pro Testosterone. We will explain how it works, what ingredients are used within, potential side effects, who should use this supplement, and where the best place to buy this particular supplement is.

How Does it Work?

As men get older, the primary sex hormone in their body, testosterone, begins to disappear. Much of it gets converted into another hormone known as dihydrotestosterone. This hormone, despite having a very similar name, could not be more different from testosterone. While testosterone is responsible for helping men to keep their weight in check, helping them maintain their sex drive, helping them build muscle, etc., dihydrotestosterone is responsible for basically the exact opposite. Dihydrotestosterone is the hormone responsible for depressing men’s sex drives, it is responsible for making it harder to lose weight and build muscle, it is responsible for causing men’s hair to thin out; in short, most of the things men hate about aging can be traced back to dihydrotestosterone. Now, the typical solution to this involves introducing testosterone back into the body through shots, creams, pills, etc. These methods can be considered a bit dangerous, however, due to the huge amount of side effects that are associated with hormone medications. For example, long term use of testosterone medication has been linked with extremely serious side effects, including a massive increase in the risk of prostate cancer and cardiovascular disease. In light of these side effects, many men choose to just let their testosterone levels fall, as opposed to taking the risks of normal testosterone treatments.

This is where all-natural supplements like Pro Testosterone come in. See, Pro Testosterone, like pretty much every other supplement out there, is made of all-natural ingredients. In this case, all-natural means that it works by using a mixture of ingredients and vitamins that you can find naturally occurring in nature. Have you ever looked at the back of a prescription pill bottle and noticed that you can barely pronounce half the ingredients? Well, all-natural supplements aim to do the opposite. They are full of ingredients that you have likely heard of before. Pro Testosterone, for example, is made with ingredients like rhodolia extract (rhodolia is a plant) and ginkgo extract (which is another plant.) The way a supplement like Pro Testosterone works is by using these all-natural ingredients to help stimulate your body’s production of testosterone. See, most traditional treatments for low testosterone work by directly introducing the testosterone into your body. That can be good, but it can also lead to the side effects we mentioned above (there are many other side effects as well, but we did not mention those). So, all-natural supplements avoid this issue by using ingredients that stimulate your body’s production of testosterone, as opposed to directly messing with your body’s hormone production.

Who Should Use This?

Now, there are two kinds of men who should use this supplement. First off, there are older men who have testosterone levels that are declining naturally. Older men like this will benefit from taking the supplement since it could help reverse their declining testosterone levels. They will also benefit from the relative lack of side effects (many of the side effects of hormone therapy would be very difficult for older men to cope with). But, you should not make the mistake of assuming that this supplement is only for older men. See, younger men may not have their testosterone levels decline naturally, but that does not mean that they cannot suffer from low testosterone in the same way that older men do. A number of factors can lead to younger men suffering from low testosterone. For example, various illnesses can cause young men to have low testosterone. Type 2 diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, and HIV can all cause a young man’s testosterone level to decrease. Likewise, men who suffer from serious injuries, especially injuries that affect the testicles, have been known to have issues with their testosterone levels. Also, obesity has been known to cause testosterone issues in younger men. So, young men who are suffering low testosterone because of the issues that were just listed will also get a lot of value out of this supplement.

What Ingredients are in the Supplement?

In this section, we are going to look at the two primary ingredients found in Pro Testosterone and give you an in-depth explanation of the ingredient itself and what the ingredient does. Hopefully, this will explain why the makers of Pro testosterone decided to include said ingredient in their supplement. It is also worth noting that there are other ingredients found within Pro Testosterone, such as calcium, but we are mainly concerned with the two herbal ingredients, gingko bilboa extract, and rhodolia extract.

Ginkgo Bilboa extract

The Ginkgo tree (also commonly referred to as the Maidenhair tree) is a species of tree that is native to China, but that has since been cultivated in other parts of the world. There were once actually several species of the ginkgo tree, but most have since gone extinct. One of the big reasons why ginkgo bilboa continues to be cultivated is because it has a big use in traditional medicine, specifically, Chinese traditional medicine. But, it generally is not used for remedying low testosterone. However, recent studies have shown that ginkgo bilboa may actually have very positive effects on testosterone levels. For example, take this 2008 study done on rats. As part of the study, male rats were given ginkgo bilboa extract for a period of around 1 month. During the study, the scientists found that the ginkgo bilboa extract resulted in “significant production” of testosterone. Furthermore, the rats also displayed behavior that one would expect of someone with increased testosterone levels, namely they began ejaculating more frequently. Another study, which was also done in 2008, looked at the effects that ginkgo bilboa extract had on rats with type-2 diabetes. If you will recall, we talked earlier about how type-2 diabetes is one of those illnesses that can negatively impact your body’s testosterone levels. Well, as this study show, giving ginkgo bilboa to the diabetic rats resulted in the rats producing more testosterone than they normally would. The cells of the rats showed much greater levels of testosterone than would normally be found in diabetic rats. So, as you can see from these studies, ginkgo bilboa extract is not just traditional medicine nonsense, it actually does have a scientific basis to it, which is why it is included in Pro Testosterone.

Rhodolia extract

Rhodolia rosea (which has a variety of more common names, including golden rose, rose root, and Aaron’s rod) is a very common species of plant that can be found all over the world, including in North America, Europe, and Asia. If you were to look at this plant, you would not assume that it has any great health benefits as it is a fairly generic looking plant. But, it has actually been used in the traditional medicine of Scandinavia for generations. But, much like with ginkgo bilbao, rhodolia extract is not primarily thought of as ebbing useful for low testosterone. However, unlike with ginkgo bilabo, there is relatively less evidence in favor rhodolia extract being useful. There is one primary study that supports the idea that rhodolia extract can be useful as a medicinal item. This 2009 study shows that people who were given a mixture of rhodolia extract and ginkgo bilboa for a period of 7-weeks experienced a noticeable increase in their endurance. This was mainly due to the fact that the extract increases the body’s ability to absorb oxygen and that the extract was able to help prevent the muscles from becoming fatigued. However, there are no credible studies yet done on rhodolia’s ability to combat low testosterone. Now, this is not to say that such a study will never pop up, it is only to say that such a study does not exist at the moment. Scientists are always doing research and doing studies on ingredients found in supplements, so it is likely that there will be future studies which show whether rhodolia extract is effective at combatting low testosterone. Of course, it is also worth mentioning that the manufacturers of Pro Testosterone may have done their own internal studies on its effectiveness that were simply never released.

Where to Buy this Supplement?

If you have never bought a supplement before, then you may be curious about where to buy them. Supplements are rarely sold in stores, usually due to not being famous enough to get put on store shelves with other, bigger brand names. Because of this, you have to go online to get supplements. But, where should you go online? The best place to buy any supplement is always the supplement’s official website. There are a couple of reasons for this. First off, if you like the supplement, then buying from the supplement’s official website is the only way of actually supporting the company that makes the supplement. Presumably, if you like the supplement, then you want the company to stay in business so that it continues to manufacture the supplement. Secondly, by buying from the official supplement website, you save yourself from being ripped off by knockoff supplements. Now, Pro testosterone does not necessarily have an issue with knockoff supplements, but many other supplements do, and it is very likely that knockoffs for Pro Testosterone may pop up in the future. You will want to avoid buying from these knockoff sites as they offer no protection for your personal information and the product that they sell tends to be very subpar. Plus, as an added bonus, by buying from the supplement’s official website, you can take advantage of the various special offers that the manufacturer offers. For example, by buying from the website, you are given a money back guarantee, so you can get your money back in the event that you do not like the supplement.

What are its Side Effects?

One of the big reasons why people flock to all-natural supplements like Pro Testosterone is the relative lack of side effects. People are so used to every medication coming with a huge list of side effects, some of which can be very concerning. For example, we talked above about how some treatments for low testosterone can result in increased risk of prostate cancer and cardiovascular disease. In comparison, Pro testosterone carries virtually no side effects. Sure, if you are taking other medications than it is recommended that you talk to your doctor before taking the supplement, but that is just a precautionary measure.

Conclusion

When it comes to all-natural supplements, they can be hit or miss when it comes to their effectiveness. In the case of Pro Testosterone, some will find that it works, others will find that it does not. Ultimately, it is up to you to give it a try. Thankfully, they have a money back guarantee, so if you find that your body is not responding well to Pro Testosterone, then you can simply get your money back and give one of the many other testosterone supplements a try. Overall, it is a good supplement, men just need to be aware that its effectiveness will vary from man to man.
