PERFORMIX Super Male T Review
Super Male T is a “male performance” supplement from PERFORMIX.
PERFORMIX is a relatively new supplement manufacturing outfit. Yet these guys already have a pretty impressive range of supplements on offer.
The current PERFORMIX range includes a whey protein supplement, an intra-workout powder, and a whole variety of different “thermogenics”.
PERFORMIX seem to be trying to position themselves as a maker of more “hardcore”, scientific supplements.
According to them, all of their products are “driven” by their TERRA Intelligent Dosing Technology.
This refers to their patented capsules, which have multiple layers designed to control release, improve dispersion, and increase absorption.
Whether ot not this system actually works is another question.
So what about Super Male T?
Who is this supplement designed for?
As stated above, PERFORMIX Super Male T is a “male performance” supplement.
It is designed to:
- Support lean muscle growth
- Increase strength
- Supercharge libido
It claims to be able to naturally support healthy testosterone levels.
The manufacturers claim it optimizes free testosterone levels through the use of 10 great ingredients.
The bottle also boasts of the extended release system.
All of this sounds very impressive.
But is Super Male T the natural testosterone booster you’re looking for?
Does it really work?
What about side effects? Is Super Male T safe?
Let’s find out together. In our full Super Male T review, we look at the formula in greater detail, as well as the potential side efefcts of using this testosterone booster.
If you don’t have time to read the full review, just skip to the conclusion at the end. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments section.
Super Male T Formula
Here is the Super Male T formula:
Right off the bat, we have a pretty big problem here.
Most of the interesting ingredients are lumped together into a big proprietary blend.
That means that we have no idea how much of each ingredient is in each serving of Super Male T.
Even the best ingredients are only useful if they’re dosed properly.
So a proprietary blend makes it very hard for us to predict how effective a supplement will be.
We don’t know how some manufacturers justify using proprietary blends, but we suspect they have something to hide.
Why else hide the serving sizes when so many others don’t?
In any case, we’re going to talk through the main positives of Super Male T, and the main negatives.
The main benefit of Super Male T is that it provides an extremely high quality form of Fenugreek Extract.
Fenugreek Extract is one of the most reliable ways to improve libido we know of.
There is very little proof that Fenugreek Extract can actually raise free testosterone levels, but it can reliably improve sex drive.
This study found that a high quality Fenugreek Extract was able to massively boost libido. Yet testosterone levels were unaffected.
That said, there is one study which looked at Furosap specifically; that’s the Fenugreek Extract used in Super Male T.
This study did find that Furosap supplementation was able to raise free testosterone levels by as much as 46%!
Yet we do need to point out two issues.
First of all, the Chief Scientist for the company that makes Furosap was involved in the cited study.
Secondly, the cited study administered 500mg of Furosap per day to participants.
We have no idea how much of the 759mg Super Male T blend is Furosap.
We do not know if lower doses are as effective as this study found; we don’t know what the minimal effective dose is.
This is a real problem. For all the good that Fenugreek Extract can do for libido, we don’t know if we have enough in Super Male T.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot else that we think we need to talk about here.
Fenugreek Extract, more specifically Furosap, seems to have a lot of potential as a libido booster and may well elevate testosterone levels (although we need to see more independent studies for that one).
But we have no idea how much we get in each serving of Super Male T.
Aside from the basic, fundamental problems posed by mystery proprietary blends, there are a number of issues with the Super Male T Performance Matrix which we need to talk about here.
Our main gripe with this blend is that almost all of the ingredients are either sub-par, unproven, or totally ineffective as far as boosting testosterone goes.
For example, in each serving of Super Male T we get substances like Epimedium brevicornum.
You might think you’ve never heard of this ingredient before, but you probably have. Epimedium brevicornum is the formal name for our old friend Horny Goat Weed.
This stuff keeps cropping up in natural testosterone boosters these days. But it seems far from effective in our opinion.
The only study often cited in support of Horny Goat Weed is this one. Yet this is a rat study; to our knowledge, no other studies have been conducted on humans.
And as you can see, testosterone was not even measured in the rats. The researchers posited that HGW maybe improved blood flow, which is why it helped erectile function.
We also have Maca Root Extract in the Super Male T formula.
Maca Root is another ingredient which we see quite often in testosterone boosters.
And like Horny Goat Weed, we have no idea why it is so commonly used for raising free testosterone levels.
Maca Root has been used for many hundreds of years as an aphrodesiac.
Indeed, there is some real, scientific evidence that it can improve sex drive in otherwise healthy people.
This study found that 12 weeks of Maca Root supplementation was able to raise sexual desire.
However, testosterone levels were unaffected. Estrogen levels were unaffected.
Most importantly, the cited study gave participants between 1.5 and 3g per day!
That’s a minimum dose which is twice the size of the whole Super Male T Performance Matrix!
We could go on and on about the ingredients in Super Male T, but we think you get the idea.
On the whole, the extracts found in this product either lack any independent scientific backing, or they have actually been shown to be sub-optimal.
Even those shown to be sub-optimal require large doses you are unlikely to get from Super Male T.
What About The Other Ingredients?
The only ingredients we get serving sizes for are Vitamin D, Zinc, and B6.
Vitamin D and Zinc can definitely raise free testosterone levels if you are deficient. Most people don’t get anywhere near enough Zinc or Vitamin D, and deficiencies can seriously deplete T levels.
Rectifying this deficiency can immediately get your T levels back to within their normal range.
But these ingredients alone do not constitute a serious testosterone boosting stack.
They are fairly standard ingredients. We expect good servings of them in every serious testosterone booster.
It is the other, more exotic ingredients that separate the wheat from the chaff.
PERFORMIX Super Male T Side Effects
The fact that we don’t know the exact serving sizes of the ingredients used in PERFORMIX Super Male T means that there’s always going to be uncertainty regarding side effects.
An ingredient might be extremely safe when used in sensible amounts, but it could be extremely dangerous if consumed in amounts that exceed the recommended maximal dose.
Any one of the ingredients in the Super Male T Performance Matrix could feasibly be dosed as high as 758mg.
That’s just something we have to consider when the manufacturer hides the details from us.
At a dose that high, many of the ingredients in Super Male T can cause side effects ranging from nausea, stomach discomfort, headaches, and feelings of light-headedness.
PERFORMIX Super Male T Review Summary – Should You Buy It?
This natural testosterone booster is full of problems.
The main , underlying issue with PERFORMIX Super Male T is that it uses a proprietary blend, meaning that we have no idea how much of any of the main ingredients we are getting.
Many manufacturers manage to reveal their formulas without anybody stealing their blend.
They make money hand over fist.
PERFORMIX obviously don’t think they can do the same for whatever reason, so we have to conclude that they offer a lot less value than their competitors.
Another main issue highlighted in our Super Male T review is the fact that it is full of useless ingredients which have never been proven by scientific study to raise testosterone levels.
Things like Maca Root and Horny Goat Weed are common additions to natural testosterone boosters today, but we have never seen any compelling evidence proving that they work.
If anything, the studies looking at these ingredients have actively convinced us that they do not benefit free testosterone, vitality, and libido.
If you are looking for a comprehensive, powerful, and reliable natural testosterone booster, the look elsewhere. PERFORMIX Super Male T doesn’t look like it offers good value for money, and results will only ever be so-so.
