Product Review: MHP T-Bomb II - The Heavy Lifter of Testosterone Boosters and Brandon Cass.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Brandon Cass who is chasing the 900 lb deadlift. We were talking about test boosters and he mentioned that I should give MHP T-Bomb II a hard look.

Well, I did and it has all the components you want in a test booster. Along with being popular among my friends.

Here are the highlights:


Fenugreek  contains a high level of furostanolic saponins that work to increase the release of luteinizing hormone from the pituitary gland. LH tells the testicles to increase testosterone production. In addition, studies have shown that men taking fenugreek for eight weeks can double their strength gains.


You probably know this as tongkat ali or long-jack this herb works directly on the Leydig cells in the testes to significantly boost testosterone and decrease cortisol levels. 


Stinging nettle raises testosterone levels by keeping the testosterone molecule free of a carrier protein known as sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). When T is free it binds with androgen receptors in muscle cells. Testosterone can't be used for muscle growth if it's not free.


Saw palmetto berry extract is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols that inhibit the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. 5-alpha converts testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and inhibiting this enzyme keeps testosterone levels up.


Cordyceps is a fungus that grows on insects like caterpillars and ants. You will sometimes hear it referred to as a mushroom and it does cool stuff, like maintain hormone levels, increasing the body's resistance to stress, improving cholesterol profiles, regulating insulin release, and boosting energy along with mental focus.


 5,7-di-hydroxyflavone (Chrysin) is a flavonoid compound that inhibits the aromatase enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. Additionally, research from Texas Tech University, in Lubbock, finds that it enhances the testes ability to convert cholesterol into steroid hormones such as testosterone.

DIM (Diindolymethane)

Diindole helps to neutralize the negative effects of high estrogen levels. This results in keeping testosterone levels up without aromatization (the process in which testosterone is converted to estrogen, which leads to excess water and fat retention).
