Mike Mahler's Testosterone Booster
« on: April 25, 2013, 07:22:02 pm »
Has anyone had personal experience with Mike Mahler's Aggressive Strength Testosterone Booster?  Or more generally the herb Bulbine natalensis?

The claims for Testosterone boosting and Estrogen reduction are pretty impressive.  Any thoughts from anyone?

Great interview, this guy seems like the next Jack L, being so interested in health and his eating pattern, but I was blown away at the end, with "I am working on a new testosterone boosting supplement that contains a south African herb called Bulbine Natalensis which has been shown to raise T by 347% and lower estrogen by 35%. It will be combined with a few other things that further free testosterone and also enhance insulin."
that just came off like a big plug for some "xtense" or "5 hour energy" crap.  Increase testosterone by 347%, well, I dont need AAS anymore, I dont need a good eating plan anymore, I can pop a pill and increase my testosterone and decrease my Estrogen. Sign me up.

First of all, Mike Mahler is the real deal and so I have no doubt it will raise testosterone in many men.

But you still have to take care of your arteries. Testosterone will not do that of course magically for you.

Same thing if you went on hrt right?

I have ordered some of this and waiting on delivery. Seems like the Mike has much more demand than he does supply at the moment so I have to wait till more stock comes in.

My testosterone is already fairly decent (600) but I am still excited to give it a try for a couple of months and retest to see the effects. If anyone else is trying this supplement also let us all know!

Okay, I finally got a chance to review this.  This is one interesting herb.  In animal studies, it definitely has some negative properties.  However, Mike Mahler and the manufacturer have tried to address all of these:

I also go into the FDA's stance on past similar issues and it will be interesting let me tell you...

The bulbine  herb is available in a number of Nutra products.    Any reason these other products wouldn't be just as good as this one?

Like this...

Mike Mahler's site says that other bulbine formulations do little.  Of course, I have no knowledge of the subject other than the few things I've read on the internet.  There's not that much out there on this herb yet, so I'm not sure what to tell you.

Now there is an interesting forum post out there that is written supposedly by well-connected guy who experimented with bulbine.  It's an int'g post and well worth the read imo.  He states some interesting things here:

http://www.talkanabolics.com/post/Bulbine-Natalensis-the-truth.-6108447

"And i found that all this information about 8 kilos to be harvested for just 377 grams of extract, maybe true, but is the extract the right one?
Native africans use the whole plant, not an extract to get aphrodisiac effects, so i started playing around with the whole plant, not an ethanol, or aqueas extract...The results were interesting i had an increase in my test levels to 1152ng, wich is a big increase...Then i got a client involved,...The results in a 2 week span with a client were very similar, his test levels were between 450ng and 530 on his previous bloods, after 2 weeks at the dosing protocol i suggested with the whole plant extract we saw a rise to 910ng then it started to taper off..."

Anyway, I don't know what to make of all of this.  All I can say is that this appears to be one potent herb.  As mentioned in my article, it seems to work on both LH and the testes and thus may have the remarkable ability to help both primary and secondary hypogonadal men.  Is it safe?  Well, time will tell on that.

My gut feeling is that this will not really be used that much by the everday Joe's with low testosterone due to the fact it requires cycling but will be highly used by serious and competitive athletes and bodybuilders to get an edge.  This is especially true in the beginning where some monitoring probably needs to occur.

Amazing stuff...

The label for the SNS Bulbine indicates it is Prolensis™, which is the same extract Mike Mahler mentions on his product page.

So it appears Mike Mahler uses the same Prolensis extract, then combines it with Stinging Nettle and Mucuna Pruriens into his proprietary blend.

Myself, I'm tempted to experiment for a month with SNS Bulbine and Stinging Nettle, to hopefully realize most of the benefits Mike advertises for his product, at much lower cost.

Also, a note about bulbine dosages ... from what I gather, it seems Bulbine follows a bell-curve response, with a point of diminishing returns.  In other words, don't take too much!  Seems many people start with 1 pill of the 350mg SNS Bulbine per day, and (especially for smaller men like me, <175 lb) that does the trick.  At that dosage, one bottle of SNS Bulbine would last 3 months once you factor in a 4 week break before starting the cycle again  :)

I didn't know it was so widespread.  It kind of makes sense, because there were so many studies cropping up almost overnight.  Obviously, this was a hot commodity.  Think how many athletic programs have their eye on this stuff, muscle heads, etc.  So it sounds like they got it to market asap, especially before the FDA does something!

Interesting tip.  I've read about the bell-curve response as well. 

So question:  are there any delays in getting the SNS bulbine?  It seems Mike Mahler is having trouble keeping supplied.  I always thought it had to be from lack of supply from Prolensis, but maybe there is something else going on?

So, it you try it, please let us know if it boosts your T and lowers your E2, side effects and things like that if you get a chance.

i have a question, and this could sound naieve.  but if this was such a good thing why would you need to cycle it?  i understand cycling in steroids since you need to let your natural test production recover for a while to keep it going, but why would you cycle something like this?  it just makes me skeptical that if you have to cycle something its not that good for you to begin with.  and if you did cycle it would your t be going through peaks and valleys every 8 weeks?  that doesnt sound appealing to me somehow

From Mike's website:

While the ingredients in Aggressive Strength have not been shown to shutdown natural hormone production, one can become desensitized to herbs if taken for too long. By cycling 8 weeks on and then 4 weeks off you keep sensitivity to the ingredients for maximum benefit.

Is post cycle support needed for this product?

No, Aggressive Strength is not a hormone or steroid and does not shut down natural production of testosterone. The ingredients in it have been shown to increase natural production and utilization of testosterone.

399, I was wondering the exact same thing about cycling, and the peaks/valleys. 
Would love to hear Peak's thoughts.
