ANDROSURGE Estrogen Blocker Review

If you’re looking to naturally raise T, you want a booster with 100% of its focus on stimulating testosterone, right?

Wrong. The best choices out there also focus on limiting estrogen. This is because we also have levels of the female hormone that has a seesaw relationship with T. If one’s up the other is down.

What’s more, estrogen levels rise naturally as we age, so if you don’t want an endocrine system that wouldn’t be out of place on RuPaul’s Drag Race, it’s smart to take steps early and safely promote an ideal balance.

Most clued up booster users know this and maybe that’s why ANDROSURGE Estrogen Blocker, from makers Jacked Factory is currently selling well on Amazon.

It claims not just to control estrogen, but also increase muscle and cut fat. Sounds ideal on paper, but then most of these boosters do.

ANDROSURGE Estrogen Blocker Review

The only way to really tell if ANDROSURGE Estogen Blocker has nailed the perfect hormonal balance is with a perfectly balanced review, so let’s see what we can do about that.

On bit of credit we’ve got to give this booster before we dive in is that it uses no proprietary blends. That of course means all the ingredients are and their separate dosages right there on the label.

Sounds like the most obvious thing in the world, but it’s an all too rare treat in this game. It’s great though because it helps consumer trust and shows confidence in the product.

How Does It Work?

At a Glance

  • Vitamin D to boost male hormone,
  • Zinc to support healthy T production
  • DIM to control estrogen
  • Grape seed to limit female hormone and provide antioxidants
  • Rhodiola to raise energy
  • Eurycoma Longfolia to stimulate libido

So not a lot in there really, but who cares about quantity if you’ve got quality, and we can look for that more closely after the scores

The Scores

The Scores
Ingredients
4/10

The biggest reason companies use proprietary blends is to cover weaknesses in their formula. And while we’ve got nothing but respect for makers who don’t use them, sometimes honesty turns out not to be the best policy because it’s the dosages that let their product down. This is the case with ANDROSURGE Estrogen Blocker.

The two best ingredients Vitamin D & zinc are under dosed, while DIM and grape seed still need more research as estrogen blockers. Eurycoma Longfolia may up your libido a bit, which is always nice, but we’d like to see a little more meat on the bones of this formula all round.

Price
5/10

Around $30 is approaching cheap for the kind of boosters we’re discussing here. It’s probably just under mid range. So yes, on the upside you’re not spending as much as you might be, but on the downside you’re not getting a whole lot either.

If you’ve got a bit of cash to spare this is the kind of booster you could buy for a month just to see if it worked, but realistically, why waste time and money?. We’re a big believer in value here and what separates value from just cheap is effectiveness. See above.

Trustworthiness
7/10

No proprietary blends so that’s an instant leg up, trust wise, on a lot of the brands we review. Also no suggestion of ANDROSURGE being dangerous to consume which is always a bonus. And they do have ingredients that are in the right ball park as far as doing what we’re promised.

Then again, this formula as missing a lot, including enough of what’s there. Suggesting that this is the absolute peak method for controlling your T and asking you for $30+ a time to do it?

Well call us old fashioned but that’s a slap on the wrist from us.

Testimonials
5/10

There’s no testimonial section on their site going into the kind of detail we like to see. But generally feedback on retail sites has been positive. It’s one of Amazon’s top sellers so it’s been bought and reviewed a lot. Any opinion you want, whether good, bad or indifferent is there.

This can be a good or bad thing. Although good reviews outnumber bad, there’s not a lot of info in these reports so it’s hard to tell if they’re legit. And there’s still enough people who saw no benefit to make you think twice. It’s easy to come away from these customer recommendations none the wiser.

Company
8/10

Jacked Factory are a pretty slick looking company with a modest range of over a dozen supplements. They mainly focus on fat burners, muscle builders and cognitive products. They lay out a very impressive sounding philosophy in their literature, but we would’ve preferred to see a bit more company background info.

That said we know all their products are made in the U.S.A and are subject to strict regulations. Arguably when it comes down to it that’s the most important thing.

How Do I Take It?

Users take 2 servings of 1 cap a day.

This could do to be tweaked, because it falls a long way short of getting the most out of your booster. We’ve never found the idea that just 2 servings of active ingredients can sustain peak effectiveness for up to 12 hours of a busy day credible.

It’s no coincidence that the most successful supplements favor a 3 or 4 a day serving schedule. That keeps the good stuff topped up regularly and working consistently so you get the most out your purchase.

Any ANDROSURGE Estrogen Blocker Side Effects?

Thanks to the lack of proprietary blends we can be pretty certain there’s nothing to worry about here as far as side effects. We couldn’t find any reports of problems either.

Where Can I Get It?

Customers will find ANDROSURGE Estrogen Blocker at Amazon.com for $35 for a 1 month supply.

Ingredients – In Detail

vitamin-d3-thumb

Vitamin D3

It’s fitting that out in the world we get most of our vitamin D3 from the sun, because in the right amount it can light up any T boosting formula it’s in.

Despite its name, vitamin D3 is actually a hormone and high levels of it go hand in hand with naturally stimulated testosterone. We can’t always rely on good weather, so supplementing is a required in northern climes of Europe and the USA.

But just make sure you get enough. Studies show that T only starts to increase in response to a dose of about 3500IUs. That’s a problem because ANDROSURGE is only bringing 1000IUs to the table.

zinc-thumbnail

Zinc

This is a real cornerstone of any strong natural booster. Reduced T and low levels of zinc are frequently connected. That’s because key building blocks for testosterone, like luteinizing, folicle-stimulating and growth hormone all rely on healthy amounts of the mineral.

Again though ANDROSURGE is a little light in terms of dose. You can overdo it with zinc but a normal daily limit is about 40mg and here we’re only being offered 9.5mg. Come on Jacked Labs, live a little.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16648789


Grape Seed Extract

Grape seed is never going to be entirely useless in a natural health supplement because it has an anti-oxidation effect on the body.

However as far as stimulating T or blocking the all-important E, the human trial we found showed it had no noticeable influence in either case. Well meaning but a bit of a waste of 150mg.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16740737


DIM

DIM

DIM is an ingredient we’re coming across more and more in T boosters. This is because the nutrient, found in green leafy veg like brocolli, does show some ability to control estrogen in trials.

However, what’s often overlooked is the fact that DIM is not an estrogen inhibitor, it’s an estrogen modulator. This means in certain low amounts it can actually raise levels. That’s why we feel there are other, better choices to control estrogen.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11931841


Rhodiola Extract

Not much direct help to your hormones, male or female, but some work shows it can reduce your hearts response to exercise, improving your stamina and allowing you to exercise for longer. So so.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23443221


Tongkat Ali / Eurycoma Longfolia

Eurycoma Longfolia

Otherwise known as Lonjack or Tongkat Ali, this is really best placed to give your libido a boost and not much else.

Some evidence points to it being able to help return T to within normal range if you’re clinically low, but if your aiming for peak output this is not your boy.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22125680


Anything Missing?

Since estrogen blocking is ANDROSURGE’s U.S.P, let’s start there. Where’s the vitamin B6? It’s far more clinically sound than DIM at this stage. Something like luteolin would’ve been a smart pick too.

On the T side of things D-Aspartic Acid and magnesium would’ve made this a much more rounded product.

Overall

ANDROSURGE Estrogen Blocker sounds a really promising prospect but in truth it’s a bit of a disappointment. It may be experiencing a sales SURGE on Amazon but we can’t see much to suggest that SURGE will get anywhere near your testosterone levels.

It’s amazing how far some supplements can get on marketing alone, but we prefer to look for boosters that do their talking in the gym and not just on the label.
