STATUS Review

About STATUS

STATUS is one of those T-boosters marketed more as an aphrodisiac than anything else. Sure, they add muscular gains and energy boost on their benefits but that’s nothing compared to how much sex they say you’ll have the moment you pop it in.

Right on the bat they claim awesome stuff like how STATUS can provide up to 178% free testosterone boost to funny things such as giving you “a libido that goes from afternoon delight to breakfast in bed” and “Times per day,” instead of “times per month” when it comes to sex.Status

Funny as it sounds,  the formulation looks to work on testosterone so let’s give this one a shot.

Ingredient analysis

For the most part, STATUS seems to be a great product. It has good T-booster ingredients and can really ramp up your sex life. We just hate it when they hide the good stuff from us but we’ll review them as objectively as possible anyway. Let’s hope they have the dosages down to at least minimum effective levels.

Zinc, Magnesium, and B6 aka ZMA

ZMA is a patented formulation and contains Zinc, Magnesium, and B6 and was formulated mainly for boosting testosterone. The consequence is having to deal with weaker forms of each ingredient.

Zinc and Magnesium would’ve been better with citrate while P-5-P is clearly better for B6 when it comes to bioavalaibility. The dosages also seem to be imbalanced with B6 easily having twice as much as needed while both minerals barely have enough to work.

It’s still good overall but we only wish they added more zinc in and perhaps lessened B6 as it’s definitely overkill with that dosage. Half would have worked just as fine.

Clinically Proven Testosterone Stack

  • TestoSURGE®. A concentrated ingredient made from Fenugreek. A study concluded that 500 mg daily dosages of this ingredient boosted testosterone in 8 weeks.
  • Longjack (Eurycoma longifolia) (root). A sex enhancer and a good testosterone booster but the form could be better.
  • Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) (berries). Not an effective T booster but is shown to promote prostate health.

They have TestoSURGE® which has been clinically proven to raise free testosterone. It’s the basis for their claim of “178% more Testosterone” and is likely their key ingredient. It’s because the study claims you need at least 500 mg  everyday to raise testosterone . The other two ingredients act as support specially with Longjack’s libido benefits and Saw Palmetto’s prostate health improvement.

Estrogen Inhibitors

  • Resveratrol. Derived from grapes, this natural compound prevents the conversion of testosterone to estrogen by inhibiting the aromatase enzyme.
  • Chrysin.  It sensitizes the testicles to produce more testosterone and also acts as an aromatase inhibitor. That is if you inject it directly to your testicles. Chrysin is poorly absorbed by the body and a study confirms the ineffectiveness of 400 mg oral doses. Basically, only 1% or 4 mg out of 400 mg is absorbed.

This blend has resveratrol and chrysin functioning mainly as estrogen inhibitors. While resveratrol is known to be effective, chrysin is considered to be more of a filler. It simply DOES NOT WORK if taken orally.

XD Delivery Technology

  • Black Pepper (Piper Nigrum). Added to increase nutrient absorption and also acts as a fat burner.
  • Fumarate and Succinate. Succinate supports fumarate and both promote easier nutrient absorption.

This blend is all about maximizing nutrient absorption on a cellular level. The purpose of these three ingredients seem to be more on absorbing chrysin. While the logic may seem sound there have yet any official studies that can say this works.

Who should use it

It’s definitely for men 30 and above, the age when testosterone starts decreasing as well as sex drive, looking to have a good bone in “times per day” instead of “times per month” according to their website.

Side effects

No actual side effects reported.

Pricing & Buying info

  • 1 bottle (30 servings): $69.99 on their website.

STATUS Alternatives

STATUS is a decent and well-rounded male enhancement product that won’t let you down formula-wise. The only problem is their steep price and some users, specially those who’ve used supplements before, might find this too expensive. For even lesser amounts you can get similar products too and they won’t hide their dosages. But if it’s value you’re looking for, you can get a bottle of Tongkat Ali by Herbolab at almost the same price.
