EPIQ TEST (By Epiq Results): Review

Epiq-Test

What does Epiq Test do?

Epiq Test is a product that is designed specifically for when you reach your 40s and the quality of your everyday life, as well as the quality of your workouts in the gym, do not seem to be the same, as they once were.

Epiq Test is developed by GNC who are a health and sports supplements manufacturer who have been around for a number of years.

According to the manufacturer, the changes that take place in the body are a result of lower testosterone production, which have a direct correlation to most aspects of life, from muscle growth, to the regulation of fat, the management of energy and stamina, as well as the quality of the libido.

Epiq Test claims to deliver pure anabolic results in a natural manner and without any side-effects.

This product is part of the “Epiq Line” which, according to GNC are “all clean, with no harmful impurities, no undisclosed ingredients, no artificial colors or dyes and contain nothing illegal or banned”.

Users of Epiq Test will experience better endurance, accompanied by greater strength and increased muscle mass as well as a healthy sex drive.

According to GNC, Epiq Test tackles testosterone enhancement from “different angles” by using high quality ingredients.

Are the Ingredients Effective?

The main ingredients include Tribulus terrestris.

Tribulus is a type of plant that comes from the Ayurveda family.

It’s “root” and “fruits” have been used for generations to enhance male vitality, as well as virility.

Tribulus is believed to enhance the libido and overall sexual well-being.

Preliminary tests have suggested that tribulus provides no effects on testosterone levels whatsoever.

A number of studies have confirmed this.

Therefore, tribulus is more useful for its libido enhancement properties, as well its ability to protect certain organs, than testosterone enhancement.

Any claims suggesting that it influences testosterone levels are false, and cannot be backed by clinical studies.

Another ingredient that is included in Epiq Test’s ingredient list, is boron.

Boron is a dietary mineral, which has recently been touted as a testosterone booster.

A couple of studies have found that men who were provided with an acute supplementation of boron over a period of six hours failed to experience any increases in total testosterone levels, but their “free” testosterone increased quite significantly, by 28.3% to be exact.

A different study, which lasted for a period of four weeks, found that a 10 mg supplementation of boron triggered an 11.4% increase in testosterone levels.

As a whole, supplementations of boron in adult males appear to deliver a mixed bag of results.

On some occasions, it contributed to an increase of testosterone, and these increases were time-dependent.

Other, more prolonged studies involving the same or less doses failed to replicate similar increases in “free testosterone”, as witnessed in the first study.

Another featured ingredient in Epiq Test is Maca Root.

Maca is a type of vegetable that is commonly grown in parts of Peru, and it resembles a turnip.

Maca has been used as an aphrodisiac for generations.

It is believed to increase sexual desire in both genders, and there is no evidence to suggest that it affects any other hormones.

A number of studies on maca have suggested that it has no influence on testosterone levels whatsoever.

Stinging nettle root is known to reduce sniffles.

But in a study on 558 patients looking at its effects on testosterone levels, found no significant changes.

Further studies have suggested minor increases in testosterone.

And finally, there is fenugreek, which is occasionally used in bread, and has traditionally been used as a libido enhancer.

In more recent times, it is gaining recognition for its anti-diabetic and testosterone enhancement properties.

One human study has demonstrated fenugreek’s ability to raise testosterone levels.

The study involved 30 male subjects, who were supplemented with fenugreek over a period of six months.

Increases in testosterone were noted, after 500 mg of fenugreek were supplemented. Estrogen levels remained unaffected.

Are There Any Side Effects?

No major side-effects were found.

Is It Adequately Priced?

You can buy one month’s supply of Epiq Test for $50.98.

Although this product contains a number of scientifically proven testosterone enhancing ingredients such as fenugreek, and boron to a certain extent, it also features a number of “impotent” ingredients that bear no influence on testosterone levels such as stinging nettle root (depending how you interpret the results from various findings), maca root, and tribulus terrestris.

On the whole, Epiq Test contains more ingredients that are proven to offer no influence on testosterone levels, than scientifically proven testosterone enhancers.

Unfortunately, these irrelevant ingredients have been used to try and justify the price tag.

On this basis, Epiq Test is not adequately priced.

    Hey James,

    Most capsule coverings contain animal fat, so technically no. However a few manufacturer’s are now turning to vegatable-coated coverings.

    good product but cant buy it at GNC anymore. Why? Now all you can get is another EPIQ test booster that only lasts 2 weeks for around 70 bucks. Was happy with EPIQ test x and for the same money lasted 2 months. 1 pill a day. The new version is 6 a day.
