Okay, so it’s an Alpha Performance Enhancer – APE.
What does that mean? How does it function in the body and serve to increase muscle mass, strength, or even libido?
First, the term ‘alpha’ is often associated with macho-ism, manliness, and a number of other adjectives that describe strength, brute strength, muscle mass, attitude, and more.
Alpha is Number One, the First, the leader of the pack.
The APE test booster is designed to be among the best test boosters out there.
An APE test booster, or Alpha Performance Enhancer testosterone booster is generally recommended to be taken in cycles. The most common cycles include a one-month cycle or a two-month cycle.
The APE test booster is promoted to support healthy testosterone levels as well as estrogen ratios.
Yes, men do produce very small amounts of estrogen in their bodies just as a women produce a very small amounts of testosterone.
Other benefits of the product include claims to enhance the presence of nitric oxide, which improves blood vessel wall health that dilates or opens the blood vessels (vascularity), which improves blood flow.
This blood flow can carry more nutrients to muscles as well as to that most important organ for sexual performance. Last but not least, muscular endurance is also a proposed benefit of this product.
How exactly do these ingredients work? It is believed that the higher the testosterone levels, the more benefits a person will experience.
Testosterone boosters stimulate not only fat burning processes, but enzymes that enhance metabolism.
Nitric oxide, due to its function in opening blood vessels, provides enhanced oxygen delivery to muscles, increasing muscle building, endurance, and stamina.
Vitamins and minerals found in APE test booster products provide vital nutrients to the endocrine and metabolic system, promoting overall male health and wellness and through its support of the pituitary gland, testosterone support.
When choosing an APE test booster, it’s important to look at labeling and ingredients.
One brand of APE test booster by Athletic Edge™ contains a variety of ingredients that include:
The main ingredient found in APE test booster is fenugreek. Other herbal ingredients found in the product include Long Jack (Tongkat Ali) extract and Maca extract.
Tongkat ali, whose scientific name is Eurycoma longifolia, has been used for centuries in Southeast Asia not only as an aphrodisiac, but to improve fertility, libido, to treat erectile dysfunction, to boost bodybuilding or athletic performance, as well as reduce body fat.
It is believed to have an impact on how the body synthesizes testosterone.
Maca is also known as a libido booster. The Peruvian herb has, like Tongkat Ali, been used to produce enhanced energy, mental focus, and enhanced sex drive for thousands of years.
Instructions for use recommend taking one serving (two capsules) in the morning for five days a week. However, for optimal APE test booster results, this brand recommends taking one serving one hour or 90 minutes prior to a workout on your workout days.
You are advised not to exceed more than two servings daily.
Maximum results are promoted when using the product for a minimum of eight consecutive weeks. The manufacturer recommends that the product not be used for more than 12 continuous weeks.
Allow a one-month rest period before resuming use. Hence the cycling – one to two months on, one month off.
Any prescription or over-the-counter product has the potential to cause side effects in some.
It is recommended, not only by the manufacturer, but health providers to obtain a checkup before starting any new dietary supplement, especially one designed to enhance, support, increase, or otherwise alter hormone production and levels in the body.
The manufacturer label recommends that you avoid this supplement and other APE test booster products if you’ve been diagnosed with a medical condition or are taking medications to treat that prescription without seeing your doctor first, as interactions with medications or your health status may occur.
Women are strongly warned against using APE test booster products due to adverse reactions.
Athletes should verify that the product is legal to use depending on sport, testing organization, and rules and regulations of sporting venues, leagues, and sport-specific guidelines regarding use of testosterone supplements.
