When you hear the word powerful you instantly get the impression that something major is about to happen. The word itself caters to superheroes such as Superman or the Hulk so when you slap it on a male supplement you assume it’s going to turn you into a hero of your own. PowerFULL works mainly on sleep and growth hormones with a bit of testosterone boost on the side and we’re initially inclined to think it’s a great product because USP Labs is the company behind it.
USP Labs is known to create monstrously good products so maybe PowerFULL is up there with their best. Will it disappoint us? Let’s find out.
- Serving size: 1 Capsule
- Serving per container: 90
Proprietary Blend – 750 mg
Velvet Bean (Bean) Extract, Chlorophytum Borivilianum (Root) Extract)
Gelatin, Corn Starch, Magnesium Stearate, Blue 1, Titanium Dioxide Color
There are only two key ingredients in PowerFULL which means plenty of room for proper dosing of ingredients. But will its simple formula be enough to boost man powers? Let’s see.
- Velvet Bean. Also known as Mucuna Pruriens, is a potent testosterone booster which works better if you’re running low on testosterone to begin with.
- Chlorophytum Borivilianum. Also known as Safed Musli, is an adaptogenic and aphrodisiac, it’s also considered a mild testosterone booster.
PowerFULL is designed as more of a growth hormone supplement but also dabs on male enhancement particularly on testosterone growth and sex drive enhancer. Safed Musli also plays a major role in stress relief and is known to provide better sleep.
The serving size is also only one capsule but they recommend to take at least 3 capsules a day and specifically prohibits carb intake, 5 g max, within 60 minutes of consumption. The serving size would add up to 2250 mg which makes us think this study was sponsored by USP Labs.
It shows the effects of combining Velvet Bean and Safed Musli with the intent of increasing growth hormones. The dosage was the same at 2250 mg and the test showed positive results for exercise-trained men.
It seems to work the way it should but being a product marketed towards athletes would require it to be stacked to maximize its effects. We also don’t know if the ingredients are standardized or not and that matters since it helps us know if a product is not working because of the user or because of the ingredients.
We should also note the use of colorants again. We have no idea why they bother with colors if not to distinguish them in the factories. Colorants are bad for you and daily intake in the form of supplements will undoubtedly pile up artificial ingredients in your body.
Who should use it
The study it sponsored specified exercise-trained men so its users should be at least semi-active to fully utilize PowerFULL’s potential.
There’s a chance it won’t boost your testosterone since Mucuna Pruriens works mostly on men with low testosterone. Users also report more as a sleep aid than it is a male supplement and that’s bad considering it’s supposed to be for weight training athletes.
Pricing & Buying info
- 1 bottle (90 capsules): $29.95 – $32.99
- Available on select online stores
PowerFULL by USP Labs is a working supplement and is best used as a sleep aid but the price for what it provides you is too steep. There are plenty of products that can give similar benefits and more for almost the same price. Its lack of transparency also makes us think they used subpar products. They’ve already used a simple formulation so why hide behind a prop blend? If you want transparency and a male supplement that actually work try Herbolab’s Tongkat Ali. At least the product won’t keep you guessing.
