I don’t know about you, but I’m always a little suspicious when I hear about a supposedly perfect testosterone booster, so hearing that Elevate from Pride Nutrition had 10 out of 10 on Bodybuilding.com caught my attention.
At first glance it’s definitely making all the right noises – increased strength, more lean muscle mass, enhanced performance and stamina. But let’s face it, anyone with a half decent label maker can make these claims, it’s backing them up that’s the important thing.
Here we’ll look at various aspects of Elevate and see if it’s that rarest of things, a supplement which is really worthy of top marks.
How Does Elevate Work?
My opinion of this supplement was certainly elevated when I saw that it chooses not to use any proprietary blends. All ingredients and their amounts are right there on the bottle, which may sound like common sense but rarer than any of us would like in this game.
Right, that’s enough sucking up, I’ve got an impartial review to do, so to quote Yul Brenner from 90s smash hit comedy Cool Runnings, this doesn’t mean that I like you. Let’s check those crucial ingredients.
At a Glance
- Minerals zinc and magnesium to promote hormone creation and raise free T.
- Mucuna Pruriens to directly boost testosterone and also lower cortisol
- Vitamin B6 to suppress estrogen
- Maca root for libido
- Oat straw to promote luteinizing hormone
- Saw Palmetto for prostate health
We’ll look at the ingredients in detail further down the review, for now here’s the scores.
Elevate has two main problems. The impressive ingredients are consistently under dosed and a few of the less worthwhile choices are given too high a volume. There are a few too many purely libido boosters included for our tastes too and the serving schedule needs to improved. Essentially this is a booster with potential that just has its priorities mixed up.
$35 is not bad for a booster and there are a couple of proven ingredients in here that might get you limited results, but I can’t get too excited about shelling out 30 bucks regularly for a product which is far from perfect.
There is a testimonial section on the Pride Nutrition which is populated by sportsmen and women who use PN products as part of their training. Unfortunately none of this impressive line-up namecheck Elevate so it’s reviews in the product section and other retail sites we’re left with. The majority of these are positive but lack the intricate detail I would look for before being won over.
Elevate is produced in the U.S and therefore has to comply with all the regulations that come with that and they don’t go in for secretive proprietary blends, trusting us with all the information, which is a good quality. Our only issue is using a few ingredients that the research isn’t that strong on, or, in the case of Trib, has been discredited completely.
Pride Nutrition began in 2003 and have maintained a solid presence and growing product range ever since. The have supplements to aid every aspect of your health conscious regime.
Not one of the really high profile names in the industry but their staying power speaks volumes.
