Hitting the gym is part of living a healthy lifestyle and eventually, we all want to build some muscle. Alpha T is a product designed in the US to boost testosterone production and enable users to build muscle more rapidly. It also serves as a fat burner, helping to maintain lean muscle and reduce fat.
With some of my experience in using fitness supplements, I looked at Alpha T to find out if it is really worth the money and to see if I really do see any results from using it. The journey taught me quite a lot about testosterone and I also spent hours doing research on the product. In this article, you will find my full review of Alpha T.
Alpha T Ingredients
Alpha T features numerous different ingredients, which are all designed to increase testosterone in your body to assist in building lean muscle tissue. Here is the breakdown of the key ingredients:
- Tribulus Terrestris: This is a herb that is designed to increase the production of testosterone in men. Some evidence also suggests the ability to increase libido in men.
- Maca Root Extract: Maca is an advanced root that serves many different purposes. It is mostly used to treat infertility and sexual dysfunction in men.
- L-Citrulline:  Amino acids are fundamentally important and this amino acid is designed to assist with muscle weakness. Studies have also shown it to be effective for treating erectile dysfunction.
- Fenugreek Extract: The final core ingredient is the Fenugreek Extract, a root that also serves to boost libido and sexual function in men. It also reduces the time needed for recovery between sexual activity in men.
While these are the core ingredients, there are many other ingredients that aid in the production of testosterone. However, they are not so abundant. These 4 main ingredients will be the ultimate difference you feel when using the supplement for training or sexual dysfunction as a male.
Alpha T Review
How does Alpha T work?
Alpha T is a state-of-the-art supplement marketed to help the production of  free testosterone in the human body. Free testosterone is the testosterone freely available in the body, which is what helps improve libido and increase metabolism as well as the growth of muscle in the individual using it.
With the increased free testosterone, your muscles will remain fed for a longer period of time. They also start breaking down some of the fats to use as energy, which can lead to a leaner look. However, it should be combined and used in conjunction with a calorie-restricted diet if you are looking to drop some fat.
The Maca Root Extract is the real kicker in the supplement itself as it enables faster production of this testosterone. This helps with sexual function as well as libido problems in males, helping them avoid any real sexual problems.
Does it work?
Alpha T is a regulated supplement and does not contain anything that could be harmful to your body or put it at risk. I felt extremely comfortable using the product and no real side effects were experienced. All of the ingredients are natural and this makes it ideal to be used by virtually anyone looking for an additional boost.
In terms of the ability to work, it does take some time. Your body needs to adjust to these roots and I only felt some of the effects after around 3 weeks of daily use. The production of testosterone will be present immediately, but when you are in the gym, the strength gains will only be seen after a couple of weeks.
To be honest, you won’t gain much weight using the product. The weight you gain or lose will mostly depend on the quality of your diet. If you are in the bulking phase, you will see an improvement in weight, but this will be mostly attributed to eating more calories.
Even if you are still using a calorie-deficient diet, the product does jump into life but this is due to the increased levels of testosterone found in the body. Your body will be more inclined to break down fat for energy and keep the lean muscle tissue protected. As a fitness specialist, you will understand the importance of preserving the lean muscle tissue and how easily the body can go into a catabolic phase if you are not careful.
Who should use this product?
While we have seen a couple of female bodybuilders choose this supplement, it is mostly marketed for men. The supplement might have a couple of downsides for females including abnormal hair growth and deepening of the voice if used for prolonged periods.
Alpha T is perfect for the younger male, looking to improve their look and overall fitness. As mentioned, it works for training when used in conjunction with a well-designed diet. This makes it perfect for any fitness professional looking for that much-needed extra boost to improve their performance. It is also worth noting that an increase in testosterone has also been proven to increase the endurance of athletes.
Sexual dysfunction is another problem that many men need to deal with and even though this is common in the elderly, young people might also suffer from  erectile dysfunction. While it is important to consult a medical specialist first, Alpha T can help with this. The herbs included can help with erectile dysfunction and improve the libido to some extent. Some users have also claimed that it can be used as part of the PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) after a steroids cycle, but we still recommend following the right traditional protocol.
How to use Alpha T
Since it is available in capsule form, it makes it really easy to use. It is recommended that you take one capsule twice a day. I took one in the morning and the afternoon. What I found was that I had more energy later in the day.
Some people might amp up the dosage, but sticking to the recommended dosage will be the safest option and this is what we recommend. You should also only use it for 12-weeks and consider taking some time off. This is to give the liver a chance to recover and to allow the body to return back to a normal state.
Benefits of Alpha T
- Increased lean muscle tissue
- Promotes fat loss
- Increase in libido and sexual function
- Easy to administer
- Improved emotional health and well being
Potential side effects of Alpha T
- Liver strain
Where can I find Alpha T?
Unfortunately, the product is not yet available in major supermarkets and you need to order it directly from the website of the manufacturer. You will first need to sign up for a trial period, which will last two weeks. However, I did not notice much difference in 2 weeks and might have fallen for a placebo effect. Most of the results came after 3 weeks of using the supplement.
After the 2-week trial period, you will be charged a certain amount each month for the product to be shipped directly to your address. However, it can also be found on the black market, but buying it is not controlled and you can easily be ripped off by fake products. We recommend using the online store or buying it from legitimate retailers if you don’t have online access.
Using Alpha T for 12 weeks proved to be one of the best decisions I could make. The product certainly held up to expectations in terms of the emotional well being and endurance. However, I could not see much differences in my weight and I followed a calorie-controlled diet while living an active lifestyle of medium-intensity training.
Personally, I would recommend Alpha T to fitness lovers looking to improve their bodies and are just in need of the extra boost to get them there. It is also worth noting that the product works exceptionally well when used with HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) for weight loss.
