Not even close in matching up to product claims!!
on March 9, 2012
I bought into the radio ads, and I ordered the stuff. I took it for a couple of months, but I really wasn't feeling any different. So, I stopped taking it for a week and ordered a lab test for testosterone levels - Testosterone, Free and Total Testosterone, Serum - from Walk-In Labs (LabCorp) for $79, as I had never been tested before. I am 48 years old, and the test results showed that I have low levels, well under the low baseline: 308 ng/dL for free and total serum. I am otherwise very fit, healthy, and excercise regularly, and eat really well.
So, I started again with the Ageless Male, which I now have 4 bottles of, and I logged my intake. I took the recommended two per day, one early and one late. And on a few occasions, I took an extra pill, which I also noted.
After 26 days, I again bought another testosterone test from Walk-In Labs. The results show that the claims on the web site are no where near the actual results: only 322 ng/dL for the serum level!!! So small of an increase, that it could have been additionally increased because of certain foods that I was eating. Not even a 5% increase, and no where near my 40% target (that I was hoping for). As for 50% or 60% (depending on which of their web sites you end up at): are they kidding?? This is a VERY expensive supplement. You are probably better off just getting bottles of Saw Palmetto and asaxanthin (but probably not from New Vitality).
My next test will be using the best quality Saw Palmetto and asaxanthin that I can find over-the-counter. My conclusion with Ageless Male is that I am writing a letter to insist on a full refund for grossly misrepresenting their product, as I have the before and after tests to prove it.
