Fenugreek seedsBoost contains one of the best testosterone ingredients in fenugreek extract. It is derived from a plant. The seeds are commonly used in natural medicine and as a food source in southern Asia. Unlike far too many ingredients used in natural testosterone boosters, fenugreek extract is shown to relieve some of the worst symptoms of low testosterone so you feel younger, stronger, more focused and more energetic with Boost.

What Are the Clinical Studies Into the Effects of Fenugreek Extract Supplementation?

We found clinical studies published in a variety of journals and trusted publications. There is no doubt fenugreek extract will work to improve symptoms of low testosterone as reported by these studies and that’s why the makers of Boost decided to use this powerful ingredient in the formula.

Glycogen Levels After Exercise

The muscles use glycogen as a source of fuel after exercise. Carbohydrate supplements are often utilized as a transport system for protein to the muscle for faster growth and recovery. A study published in the journal Amino Acids (1) showed a significant improvement in glycogen resynthesis in participants who took a combination of fenugreek extract and dextrose (a source of carbohydrates). The participants completed 90 minutes of exercise in the study. Two hours after the completion of exercise both groups consumed dextrose, but one group also consumed fenugreek extract. The increase in glycogen resynthesis was 63% greater in the group that consumed both dextrose and fenugreek extract. With Boost, muscles get more of the fuel they need to grow and recover so you are stronger with more muscle mass.

Resistance Training Adaptations

With a combination of creatine and fenugreek extract, study participants measured an increase in creatine uptake even when carbohydrate intake was decreased. The study, published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine (2), was reported in 2011. One group consumed 5 g of creatine with 70 g of dextrose. The second group consumed 3.5 g of creatine with 900 mg of fenugreek extract. The fenugreek extract group showed a quicker uptake in creatine so less creatine was needed to achieve the same results. Creatine can come with some negative side effects, so Boost helps fight those side effects by making creatine more powerful in less time.

Increased Endurance and Decreased Fat Accumulation

Endurance is what keeps you going in the gym. With low testosterone, endurance levels fade. Fenugreek extract can improve endurance via improvement in fatty acid use as an energy source. The Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology (3) reports a decrease in fat accumulation and increase in endurance with supplementation of 300 mg per 2.2 pounds of body weight. Basically if you take Boost you will work harder and last longer in the gym. That is at the heart of growing muscle mass and getting that fit and thin body from your younger years.

Potential Side Effects With Fenugreek Extract

There are no side effects to worry about with fenugreek extract or Boost. That is the lure of a supplement like this as you don’t have to worry day in and day out about the price you have to pay for taking the supplement.

Can You Expect Relief From Symptoms of Low Testosterone?

With aging comes lower testosterone levels. Low testosterone can cause fat accumulation and decreased physical performance. Fenugreek extract is clinically tested to help counteract these symptoms so Boost added the ingredient so you get the benefits you desire.
