Isn’t avena sativa the ingredient that allows for increase in free testosterone? I didn’t see this listed as one of the ingredients in Alpha Male, so it doesn’t seem that it is really a complete combination of Red Kat and Tribex… any other opinions on this?[/quote]
Very good point. Alpha Male only contains 450mg of tribulus per serving. Tribex contains 1000mg of Tribulus and 1000mg of Avena Sativa per serving. From my understanding, the Avena Sativa was used to inhance the effects of the Tribulus in Tribex.
Here is where it get interesting. The orginial Red Kat formula only contained 300mg of Eurycoma longifolia per serving. Alpha male contains 450mg of Eurycoma longifilia. Therefore it contains 150mg more of the Eurycoma longifilia. Then you have to take into consideration that with Nano Dispersion Technolodgy, you will be getting near injection levels of bioavailablity. Which means you will get almost 100% of the Alpha Male ingredients into your bloodstream. Whereas you would lose a lot of the contents of Red Kat and Tribex along the way. How much of the Tribex or Red Kat you actually absorb into your blood stream I don’t know, but it’s probly not even close to 100%.
I have seen a few blood test from people who have only taken Tribex, and from people who have only taken Red Kat. The people who took Red Kat saw a bigger rise in free testosterone levels then the people who took Tribex. With that said, I believe that Red Kat is a more effective testosterone booster then Tribex. Therefore, in my opinion Biotest really did things right by upping the dose of the Red Kat ingredient, and lowering the dose of Tribulus. You can only fit so much into one little capsule therefore I think they made the most powerful testosterone booster possible for the amount of space they have to fill in each pill.
One more thing to take into consideration though. Tribex raises T-levels through the patoitary (sp?) gland, and Red Kat raises T-levels through the testicols. Which leads me to a question. Would it be okay to take 1 or 2 Tribex with each serving of Alpha Male?
