Bulasterone

Rating
Hi-Tech Bulasterone is the World’s Strongest Testosterone Booster, that is according to the product label. This bold claim is of course totally unproven and seems to suggest that Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals may have lost the plot when it comes to creating believable advertising. Or is this supplement really the strongest T booster in the world? We take an in depth look at Bulasterone to find out.

Bulasterone comes from Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, a supplement company based in Georgia USA, who are known for their use of strong and often dangerous ingredients. Bulasterone is no exception to this pattern, and contains a blend of unusual substances that is supposed to boost testosterone.

Bulasterone Pros

  • Some positive feedback
  • Some of the ingredients look promising in clinical testing

Bulasterone Cons

  • Most ingredients only undergone animal testing
  • Serious side effects could be a real issue
  • Inadequate ingredients profile
  • Will show up positive in dope testing

What You Need To Know About Bulasterone

Hi-Tech Bulasterone comes with the claims that it is the strongest testosterone booster in the world but the truth is that it contains a cocktail of unproven and untested ingredients that may work in an unpredictable way. Some of these look extremely promising in studies on rats but there is no evidence they will work for humans and there are serious concerns about side effects.

As is usual with Hi-Tech, this supplement lacks real information regarding ingredients and comes with no money back guarantee.

What Are The Side Effects Of Bulasterone?

Side effects may include; liver damage, kidney damage, headaches, dizziness, sweating, nausea, vomiting, high blood pressure, mood swings, aggression, sleep disturbances, prostate gland issues.

Bulasterone may also cause positive results for cannabis drug testing and see you disqualified from some sporting competitions because it contains banned substance DHEA.

How Much Does Bulasterone Cost?

Bulasterone is expensive. If you buy direct from the Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals website it costs $69.95 for 150 capsules (50 – 150 servings depending on how you take it).

It is also on sale from other online retailers so you can shop around for price. We found it on sale for $34.98 from other retailers.

Our Verdict On Bulasterone

We are very concerned about Bulasterone. This supplement contains a lot of unproven, untested ingredients and side effects could be serious. Some experts advise that if you do take Bulbine, it is essential to cycle off to reduce the risk of kidney or liver damage, yet this information is not passed on the customer by Hi-Tech.

Many of the other ingredients are equally of concern and the fact that Bulasterone will see you disqualified for doping from some sport, as well as testing positive for cannabis is a matter of deep concern. If you work for the police or the military for example a positive cannabis test will probably see the end of your career.

As ever this company seem totally unscrupulous when it comes to the safety of their customers and in our opinion, Bulasterone looks to be a dangerous supplement that is very unlikely to work as described.

Bulasterone Review

Bulasterone is a supplement in pill form that you take in order to boost your testosterone levels with a view to building muscle and strength. Increasing testosterone is a powerful ally in sport and fitness but taking illegal steroids and prohormones, leads to numerous potentially dangerous side effects as well as disqualification in sports and is not a road that all bodybuilders and athletes want to go down.

That said, people still want enhanced testosterone. This means that many people look to legal supplements that look safer and claim to do the same job as their illegal or semi-legal counterparts.

Bulasterone Facts

  • Comes from Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals
  • Each bottle contains 150 capsules
  • Contains ingredients that will test positive in dope tests

Bulasterone is not a steroid or prohormone. Instead it contains so called nutraceutical ingredients that are supposed to help the body increase testosterone. This sounds good but it is important to remember that not ALL herbal supplements are safe and there are some chemical compounds in this supplement that are certainly not natural.

The principle ingredient, judging by the name of this supplement, is a herbal extract called Bulbine Natalensis, a South African herb with a reputation as an aphrodisiac. This sounds promising but in fact Bulbine Natalensis has not been clinically tested at all on humans so is pretty much unproven. It has only been tested on rats and although it does seem to increase testosterone as well as decrease oestrogen levels, it can cause damage to the liver and kidneys.

Other ingredients include Tribulus Terrestis, a Mediterranean fruit extract that is often taken to improve sexual and exercise performance. It contains Sodium D-Aspartic Acid too which some clinical testing suggests increases both testosterone and luteinising hormone. In men Luteinising hormone promotes sperm production.

How to Take Bulasterone

  • Take 1-3 tablets in the morning and 1-3 tablets after lunch or prior to training.
  • Do not exceed 9 tablets in any 24-hour period.

It contains DHEA – a prohormone derived from soy and believed to increase testosterone. It contains Torkesterone – a natural plant compound from Russia that is touted for increasing testosterone via ecdysteroids or insect hormones.

Other ingredients include 6-Keto-Diosgenin, a plant steroid, and 5-Methyl-7-Methoxyflavone a chemical compound often marketed as a body builder supplement, which has the unusual side effect of causing fake positive results in cannabis testing.

Take a look at the ingredients tab to find out more about this supplement.

Bulasterone Concerns:

  • The side effects could be unpredictable
  • No information about how to take this supplement. Health advice is to cycle products containing Bulbine yet this information is not passed on to the customer
  • This supplement is expensive. Use the maximum serving and a bottle of 150 capsules will not last you a month

Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, sometimes referred to as Hi-Tech Pharma are notorious for dodgy looking supplements. They have been in litigation with the FDA for their use of DMAA (1, 3-dimethylamylamine) a banned stimulant found in several products including weight loss supplement Fastin and Jack’d Up a pre-workout supplement.

Other Hi-Tech supplements contain ingredients such as Acacia Rigidula (BFPEA), which the health authorities would like to see banned because of the risk of side effects, as well as a wide range of semi legal prohormones.

What Does Bulasterone Claim To Do?

The bottle proclaims that:
“Bulasterone is the Strongest Testosterone Booster In the World!”

And that it is
“The Most Scientifically Advanced Nutraceutical Formulation for Testosterone Enhancement!”

There is no explanation or proof that any of this is true.

The supplement is;

  • “For Men Who Desire to Build Muscle and Strength”
  • “For all Men to Support Enhanced Testosterone Levels”

The supplement, “was developed for bodybuilders, strength athletes, and general fitness enthusiasts to promote the muscle building effects associated with optimal testosterone levels.”

The product information mentions the key ingredients.

“Contains Bulbine Natalensis Extract, Sodium D-aspartic Acid, Tribulus Terrestis Extract (Protodioscin), Torkesterone, 6-Keto-Diosgenin, and 5-Methyl-7-Methoxyflavone”

It does not mention what these ingredients actually are. There is no clinical proof or any evidence that this formula has ever been tested for safety.

Does Bulasterone Work?

It may work. There again it may not. Nobody knows exactly what this supplement will do because it all looks a bit experimental and unsafe.

Bulbine Natalensis has only been tested on rats, but this testing did demonstrate increases in testosterone, although the dose that caused this effect in rats also caused liver and kidney damage. (According to experts you could minimise the risks by cycling this supplement)

The other ingredients suffer from a similar lack of testing and real evidence, and most are unproven for effectiveness and safety. Insect hormones Torkesterone comes with very little proof it will work for humans, and the benefits for 5-Methyl-7-Methoxyflavone are nonexistent.

This supplement looks just too unpredictable and the ingredients too unproven to really know what it will do.

What Are The Ingredients of Bulasterone?

Serving size is quoted at being between 1 -3 capsules, so judging by the product information it seems that each capsule contains 1550mg of active ingredients. However, it could refer to per 3 capsule serving. This basic information is just not available and individual ingredient quantities are unknown.

  • Rapid Release Testosterone Booster (1550mg)
  • Sustained Release Technology features branded products Explotab® & Methocel®: Explotab is used to help the tablets disintegrate faster and is sodium starch glycocate derived from potatoes. Methocel is derived from pine pulp and used as a thickener or binder. Both Explotab and Methocel are used in countless food and dietary supplements as thickeners and release agents.

  • Sodium D-Aspartic Acid: This is a form of the amino acid aspartic acid. It has been tested on humans and rats and early research is very promising in the treatment of male infertility. Early research indicates it that it raises luteinising hormone, stimulating the production of testosterone, which is important for sperm production. The downside is that the testosterone increase seems to be only a temporary effect.

  • Bulbine Natalensis (100:1): Concentrated extract herbal extract called Bulbine Natalensis, a South African herb with a reputation as an aphrodisiac. It has undergone 3 separate animal tests using rats and the advice for human users is to increase serving size per body weight to reflect the smaller sized rats, so approximately 550mg if you weight 150lbs. Bulbine seems to increase testosterone and decrease oestrogen levels but the effective dose has a strong incidence of causing kidney and liver damage.

  • Tribulus Terrestis Extract: Mediterranean fruit extract that is often taken to improve sexual and exercise performance and some studies suggest that it may be effective. However, it may cause numerous side effects including future prostate problems.

  • Dehydroepiandrosterone: Better known as DHEA, this hormone is produced naturally by the adrenal glands and is a precursor to testosterone. Supplements are usually derived from soy or yam and effects can be unpredictable.
    Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2774316
  • Rhaponticum Carthamoides (root): The advertising mentions Torkesterone but it shows up as Rhaponticum Carthamoides on the ingredients list. This Russian plant is a source of ecdysteroids or insect hormones used by insects for sex drive and moulting but when these molecules are present in plant forms they may have different actions. Rhaponticum Carthamoides has been tested on rats but as clinical study is in very early stages, it is too soon to make any claims about it.

  • 25R Spirotstan-5a-diol-6-one-3-one Decanoate: Plant steroid compound that is supposed to act like illegal steroids but comes with very little evidence it is effective. There is very little information about this compound and it has only been tested on rats.
    Source: https://www.evolutionary.org/forums/supplements/25-r-spirostan-5a-diol-6-one-3-one-bodybuilding-39284.html
  • 5-Methyl-7-Methoxyflavone: This chemical compound is marketed as a bodybuilding supplement but there is no clinical proof to show it is effective. One study carried in 2006 found that there were no measurable effects were observed in athletic performance or in levels of testosterone and cortisol. As an unexpected side effect, it can produce false positive results in tests for cannabis use.
    Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/5-Methyl-7-methoxyisoflavone
  • Quebracho Blanco Extract (bark): South American tree extract sometimes used to increase sex drive and to treat high blood pressure and asthma. There is no evidence that it works for any of these purposes.
