One of the more common side effects of free radical damage is premature aging. Boost can work to reverse the signs of aging so you feel younger and look younger at the same time.

Increased Nutrients

Black pepper extract is a strong source of zinc. Zinc also works to increase serum testosterone levels, according to the journal Nutrient (1). Over the source of a study that included 40 men without any known health issues, serum testosterone levels increased with zinc supplementation. Supplements are the perfect way to increase zinc consumption, but nutritionists agree getting the mineral from natural sources is better than any supplement. Black pepper extract is a natural source of zinc.
