What You Should Know
Maximum Human Performance offers a long list of supplements for bodybuilders who want to trim fat, gain muscle and achieve peak performance in the gym. T Bomb II is one of the newest supplements offered by the company. T Bomb II claims to improve how testosterone is used in the body and reduce estrogen in the body. For men, reducing estrogen is important to building larger muscles, faster. Women should not take this supplement because estrogen is needed for normal daily functions in the body beyond the reproductive influence the hormone has.
List of Ingredients
Magnesium, Zinc, Copper.
Optimone-5: Five-Phase Hormone Optimizing Blend – Tribulus Terrestris, Fenugreek, Tongkat Ali, Red Clover Extract, Chyrsin, Kudzu Root, DIM, Avena Sativa Extract, Zinc, Stinging Nettle Leaf, Beta Sitosterol, Saw Palmetto Berry Extract, Bioperine. 2nd Messenger Hormone Amplifiers – Flaxseed, Glycine, L-Arginine, Magnesium Oxide, Dipotassium Phosphate, DL-Malic Acid, L-Methionine, Cordyceps, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide.
The main ingredient in T Bomb II is Tribulus Terrestris. This ingredient became popular in the 1970s when a bodybuilding champ from the American IFBB claimed he used tribulus terrestris. Significant research has gone into settling the debate over tribulus terrestris, but the research has fallen short for those wanting a positive result. The main ingredient in T Bomb II does not increase testosterone nor does the ingredient impact muscle growth.
Fenugreek is most often used by nursing mothers who need to increase breast milk volume. This is where the majority of research on fenugreek has focused. There is some evidence that the seed does help regulate blood glucose levels which could mean hunger control.
Tongkat ali is a libido boosting ingredient that is touted as the herbal Viagra. The reason it is included in a muscle building supplement is questionable. Maybe the manufacturer thought an increase in libido was the same as an increase in testosterone.
Kudzu has been in Chinese medicine for thousands of years to prevent or treat alcoholism. The ingredient could have an anti-inflammatory and pain relieving effect in the body. DIM is promoted as an estrogen blocker. This is the ingredient that makes the T Bomb II supplement unsafe for women. Avena sativa is another aphrodisiac that is supposed to improve libido in males.
The final important ingredient is stinging nettle. Stinging nettle has been used for many alternative treatments, but it is the testosterone boosting function that T Bomb II is counting on. Though science has not proven the effects, stinging nettle contains 3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran that occupies the sex hormone globulin to increase testosterone.
T Bomb II sells for about $40 a bottle.
- Some of the ingredients may work to increase testosterone or decrease estrogen.
- T Bomb II is not safe for men and women.
- Women taking the supplement may feel adverse side effects if estrogen is blocked.
- The main ingredient has been proven ineffective.
Dieters will not see a weight loss effect from taking T Bomb II. Chances are, bodybuilders will not see a great impact on muscle mass either.
