Test Boster Dosages

im currently taking 17hd about 7 days in and im considering doubling the dose. recommended is only one capsule 30 mins before workout. Im considering also taking one capsule it in the morning. Ive tried several testosterone boosters and 17hd and cellucor’s p6 has seemed to work the best. Im kind of sick of spending $ on so many supps and making little gains.

any advice would be appreciated…thanks

Phill nailed it. I would say about 90% of the T boosters out there are junk. Just reformulations of Tribulus and some other magical mystery herbs. You never stated how old you are, my feeling is if you are under 35, you probably don’t need any T boosters.

If you are really concerned because you have lost your sex drive, look at a really hot babe and go “yeah, so?” or go to chick flicks with the honey and cry more than she does, or much worse is when YOU want to see the chick flick more than she does: you need to get your T tested by your doctor.

Also, mega dosing of a supplement can actually be counter productive. Increasing doses can bring you to the point of diminishing returns. Remember, the T changes into estrogen and estrodol. Be careful with heavy doses of T booster, especially if there is no anti-E involved or you will end up toting your prostrate around in a wheel barrow.

One more thing. Are you sure you are giving the recommended dose enough time? Most sups take anywhere from 4-8 weeks to really kick in. I have a history of taking different T boosters to “find one that works”. Well, my 30 day “trial supplies” of product X was simply not enough time to see anything.

I have been running the same product now for about 3 months and can see and feel the effects. FWIW, I am 50 with T at the top of the lower third of the scale. This time the approach with the T booster was different, more time on the sup and tracking with blood work.

Before taking any supplement or 'roid DO YOUR HOME WORK! Rad up on the stuff, if you can’t find any user logs on something or independent testing reports, stay away from it.

For a healthy young guy, doing heavy squats, deads, eating and sleeping right will raise your T as well as any booster.

dogsoldier, good answer. T-boosters are a waste of money for us young guns who still have optimum test levels. 17 h-d is a preworkout free test booster that slightly raises free test for about an hour. If you doubled the dose, you wouldn’t increase free t much more than one tab, as one tab exerts about the max the body can make from these natural herbs.
