Their supplement Alpha King was a little disappointing, with some underwhelming ingredients.
Which is a shame because there is a lot of things that we like about Force Factor.
Hopefully Test X180 Alpha can impress us with its effectiveness.
In this review we will take a look at the company behind the supplement.
Their claims about it, the ingredients list, and customer reviews on Amazon before, finally, we give you our take on Test X180 and let you know whether it works or not.
Quick Review: Test X180 Alpha has a solid list of ingredients for a testosterone booster.
But because they don’t reveal the exact dosage of each ingredient it’s impossible to tell if this is a good testosterone booster or not.
Some people are getting good results but there are just as many seeing no results at all.
For $99.99 this product is far too expensive and unreliable for us to recommend.
We feel there are better and more proven testosterone boosters out there.
Force Factor Company Review
Force Factor has been around since 2009, when two Harvard University students decided to start their own supplement company.
They’ve stayed close to their roots too.
Force Factor is headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts.
The company has won three major awards, two with GNC (Breakout Brand of the Year, and Rising Star Award) and one from Bodybuilding.com (Brand of the Year).
Everything about Force Factor’s branding is slick and impressive.
The brand-new website oozes class, and the product packaging is of a very high standard.
But while this sort of stuff helps create a good impression, the only thing that really matters is whether their supplement works or not.
Let’s take a look and see.
Test X180 Alpha Claims
There are three main claims made by Force Factor about their supplement:
- It enhances sexual performance
- Builds Lean Muscle Mass
- Maximises Power and Stamina
The product is sold as an energising testosterone booster, but just how accurate is this claim?
Test X180 Alpha Ingredients List
What’s so frustrating about this supplement is that it uses a performance blend and a testosterone boosting matrix.
These are fancy terms for a pretty awful practice of hiding the individual dosages of each ingredient.
What makes it even more frustrating is that Force Factor only do this with certain supplements.
Their Test X180 Ignite supplement provides all the ingredient information necessary, but Test X180 doesn’t.
Let’s move on.
There are three main sections to the ingredients, the first section contains the vitamins and minerals.
Out of these only Zinc and vitamin B are worth mentioning.
- Zinc: A common side-effect of intense exercise is a zinc deficiency, this can affect testosterone as low zinc equals low t. Topping up your zinc levels can have a knock-on effect on your testosterone levels. However, if you are not deficient in zinc you will see no difference whatsoever.
- Vitamins B6 and B12: There aren’t many specific benefits to supplementing with B vitamins, though they may reduce fatigue, and some believe that B6 can reduce cortisol. Though most studies have failed to find any significant effects . Then there is the Sexual Performance Blend, which contains: L-Citrulline, Maca Root Extract, Damiana Leaf Extract, and Muira Puama Bark Extract.
- L-Citrulline: This might seem like an odd ingredient for a sexual performance blend, but due to its effect on blood flow  it could actually be useful. A 2011 study on men with erectile dysfunction found that 1500mg of citrulline per day for 6 weeks led to improved erections.
- Maca Root Extract: There is a lot of evidence to suggest that Maca root extract can increase your libido . It may also help to improve erections and sexual performance in men with erectile dysfunction .
- Damiana Leaf Extract: This ingredient is an interesting one. While it has been used for years as an aphrodisiac, there is actually very little evidence that it actually works.
- Muira Puama Bark Extract: As with Damiana Leaf Extract, Muira Puama is a traditional aphrodisiac that has not really been found to be effective by any studies. This doesn’t mean that it is ineffective, just that it hasn’t been proven to be effective.
Finally, you have the Free Testosterone Boosting Matrix, which contains: Fenugreek Seed Extract, White Mushroom, Stinging Nettle Leaf Extract, Chrysin, and Diindolylmethane (DIM).
- Fenugreek Seed Extract: If Fenugreek had been placed in the Sexual Performance Blend section we would have no problem. There is evidence that Fenugreek can increase libido . It may also help burn fat . But as a testosterone booster there just isn’t enough evidence to say either way. Some studies have found slight increases in t-levels, while others have found absolutely no change .
- White Mushroom: Appears to block aromatase, an enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. If you have high levels of aromatase (many overweight men do) then taking this may help to support and even increase testosterone.
- Stinging Nettle Extract: Does not increase testosterone , no other benefits worth mentioning.
- Chrysin: Another supplement that has been shown to have no effect on testosterone levels .
- Diindolylmethane (DIM): An excellent aromatase inhibitor that can help support and may even boost testosterone.
Test X180 Alpha Reviews
At the time of writing there have been 74 customer reviews on Amazon, with an average score of 3.5 stars out of 5 stars.
46% of reviews have been 5-star reviews, while 15% have been 1-star reviews.
Some reviews claim that it works incredibly well, while others claim that it doesn’t work.
It’s hard to take either positive or negative reviews too seriously.
Unless each reviewer has had their hormone levels tested before and after, it’s impossible to say for certain whether it has worked or not.
Final Thoughts On Test X180 Alpha
As always, when a supplement hides the dosages of their ingredients by using proprietary blends, performance matrixes, or similar, we will always advise you to avoid.
It’s a bad practice that needs to end.
We don’t know if there is 0.001mg or 1,000mg of Diindolylmethane contained in this supplement, and that makes it impossible to say whether it is a good product or not.
Message to Force Factor … Stop it!
If we ignore the fact that they have concealed their dosages, it’s actually an okay supplement.
The sexual performance blend is excellent.
Lots of ingredients that have been scientifically proven to work.
The testosterone boosting section is less effective, but still okay.
Something else we should have mentioned; the price is surprisingly high at $99.99 per pack of 120 capsules.
For $100 you deserve to know exactly how much of each ingredient is contained within this supplement.
It really is the least you deserve!
