men+ is a Multi-Vitamin manufactured by Sportganic. It is designed to help provide the body with a wide array of micro nutrients that are vital for optimal health. It could be described as an 'insurance policy' to ensure that you're getting all of your vitamins and minerals but it is still crucial to eat a balanced diet.
IntroductionWell first and foremost I would like to say thank you to Sportganic for the opportunity to log this product. Sportganic Men+ is touted as a Maximum Natural Free Testosterone Booster & Nitric Oxide Performance Catalyst. I know, that's a real mouth full. But how did the claims stack up to the results you ask? Well, lets find out.
Ingredient ProfileSo as with most supplements making any sort of claim to supporting healthy levels of Nitric Oxide this product contains L-Arginine HCL (1g) and also L-Citrulline DL-Malate (100mg). While I do appreciate the fact that the ingredients are disclosed in actual amounts I would be doing anyone reading this review a disservice not to mention how incredibly under dosed both of these compounds are. Arginine should be taken 3-6g per serving and Citrulline should weigh in at 6-8g per dose. These are the recommended effective doses based on clinical trials. So really the inclusion of them isn't going to do much other than add another perceived dimension to the product.
It is worth mentioning that the blend also includes a small dose of B3 or Niacin (15mg) and a small dose of Zinc as Zinc Gluconate (15mg). Obviously both of these vitamins play important roles but again we're looking at a significantly under dosed pair of compounds. Niacin is usually dosed much higher (can cause flushing and red irritated skin) at around 500-1000mg and an effective dose of Zinc Gluconate is going to be somewhere in the vicinity of 300-400mg. So not really any benefit to having either of these present in the mix.
To get to the real meat and potatoes of this supplement you have to look at the kitchen sink Sportganic Nitro Text XL Blend. Lots of familiar faces to the natural test boosting world such as Testofen, Longjax, Maca, Horny Goat Weed, etc. All in all there are 12 compounds listed in this massive proprietary blend. I have included a picture of the label in this review so you can look for yourself if so inclined. So herein lies the problem. In a four capsule serving this blend makes up 1400mg in total and contains 12 different compounds. I'm going to spare you guys literally going into every single ingredient one at a time and just say this. At 1400mg there is no way that every compound in this blend are going to be present in effective dose ranges. That is if any of them even are to begin with. I hate this approach to supplements. I would rather take a supplement where there are two or three ingredients that I know are present in effective dosages. What's the point to taking too little of something to reap the potential benefit?
All in all the ingredient profile is made to look good on paper with the inclusion of a lot of popular compounds for boosting test naturally but when you really break down and research the compounds individually you really start to see how under dosed most of them probably are.
