Blue Gene Review
What You Should Know
Blue Gene, a Controlled Labs supplement, claims to work like a prohormone in the body to enhance natural anabolic tendencies. This means the supplement helps the bodybuilder to achieve higher testosterone levels so muscle can be built faster and bigger than they would be without the supplement. There are two important things to remember about Controlled Labs products – they tend to overcharge for supplements and not every supplement is created from trusted and proven ingredients. We will see how Blue Gene stacks up to the competition figuring that most prohormones are now illegal for use in the United States.
List of Ingredients
Blue C Complex: L-Carnitine, Cissus Quadrangularis, Carao Extract, Catuaba 4:1 Extract, GlycoCarn.
Blue Sky Complex: Quercetin, Ginkgo Biloba, Grape Seed, Epimedium Sagittatum, Coenzyme Q10, Griffonia Simplicifolia Extract, Apigenin, Perilla Frutescens.
L-Carnitine is often marketed as an ingredient for weight loss, but there are no clinical studies that prove this. However, there are some studies that report increased metabolism of energy and increased muscle mass and libido when L-Carnitine was taken orally. Cissus Quadrangularis may help the body metabolize fats and reduce oxidative stress common in bodybuilding.
Carao Extract is marketed as a blood builder and natural treatment for anemia. If there is an iron deficiency, the bodybuilder could feel increased energy thanks to this ingredient. Catuaba 4:1 Extract is a libido booster. GlycoCarn is a nitric oxide booster.
Moving on to the Blue Sky Complex we have Quercetin. Quercetin may increase energy output, though scientific studies on humans have not been completed as of yet. Ginkgo Biloba helps to improve memory and focus. Grape seed is a natural antioxidant. Epimedium Sagittatum is used to boost libido in men. Griffonia Simplicifolia Extract is thought to improve mood and reduce pain. Apigenin works as an anti-inflammatory. Perilla Frutescens is an old Chinese herb used for everything from morning sickness relief to constipation relief.
Now that we have all the ingredients researched, what are we left with? Going back to the product description, Blue Gene is said to act as a prohormone in the body to increase free testosterone. This is not the case. There are several libido boosting ingredients, but these are not necessarily going to increase testosterone. There were once prohormones that worked to naturally increase testosterone levels, but most were placed on a banned list in 2005.
Blue Gene sells for $77.99 per bottle on the official website. Outside websites sells the product for $43.99.
- All ingredients are listed on the official website.
- The ingredients will not increase testosterone levels.
- Some of the ingredients work to increase libido.
- Mood boosting ingredients should not be taken by people on anti-depressant or anti-anxiety medication.
There are no weight loss benefits to taking Blue Gene and it is just as unlikely to help the bodybuilder increase muscle mass.
