Internal 911 is a colon cleansing/detoxification supplement sold by Phytage Labs… But is it any good and is it worth the money?
Is it possible that Internal 911 is just another scam that isn’t going to do anything for you?
In this review I’ll be answering all you need to know…
They call it the “emergency flush system” and say that it has “triple action” colon cleansing power to scrape the walls of your colon clean from waste and debris, but of course you can’t always believe what you hear or read online.
There is a good chance you came across this video presentation for this product…
And if you didn’t that is okay. Basically the video presentation made Internal 911 sound like the greatest thing ever and to be honest, it raised my suspicion because it sounded too good to be true… a bit scammy.
The purpose of Internal 911 is to clean your colon, which is something that is often overlooked and is and underlying problem to many different health problems.
On the bottle of Internal 911 it says that it has the benefits of…
And to be honest this is far from an exaggeration. In fact, colon cleansing can be incredibly important and can provide a heck of a lot more benefits than just that.
The colon is the large intestine, which has the function of absorbing water, minerals, vitamins etc.
Over time the walls of the colon can become encrusted with waste, which can seriously hinder nutrient absorption and also slow down digestion. This can lead to a lack of nutrients as well as energy, which can lead to a number of other problems.
There are a lot of people out there that probably feel sluggish and unhealthy throughout the day, thinking that they are just getting old, when in reality much of this problem can be attributed to an unclean colon.
So yes, keeping your colon clean can be incredibly important, and this is more true when you get older and your body starts to slow down.
But anyways…. Yeah it is important, but is Internal 911 actually a good supplement to do the job? Let’s find out…
As you already know, Internal 911 is a cleansing/detoxification supplement that is sold by Phytage Labs, who I am familiar with because I have also reviewed other products by them such as Eagle Eye 911 and Tinnitus 911. All of their products are 100% natural, so I knew what to expect when I first started looking into this one.
Overall Internal 911 isn’t that bad and definitely does have potential to get the job done, but I do question its effectiveness and you will see why.
Psyllium – This is a great source of soluble fiber, which is the type of fiber that absorbes water and turns into a soft gel-like substance when doing so. It helps prevent diarrhea and keeps stools soft. It is widely used for cleansing the colon and is also considered a laxative, which can help with constipation.
It’s also worth noting that this might be one of the most safe oral laxatives out there.
Black Walnut – The outer covering of the nut from black walnut trees are used to treat parasitic worm infections. This has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years and besides helping get rid of parasitic infections that could be sucking prescious nutrition out of your digestion, it is also a well known laxative.
According to ParasiteTesting.com, black walnut husk helps to oxygenate your blood which then helps kill off parasites.
Bentonite Clay – This is another commonly found ingredient in cleans and detox products and is also used for skin care among other things. The reason it is so good for cleaning/detoxing is because it absorbs toxins, heavy metals, impurities, etc and makes it easy for your body to get rid of them.
According to some sources it can also help restore a healthy balance of bacteria in your guy, killing off bad baceria and promoting the growth of good bacteria.
I know it may sound weird, and maybe even harmful, to eat clay, but the amount included in this supplement is nothing to worry about by any means.
Oat Bran – Oat bran is another good healthy source of soluble fiber, which is good for restoring healthy bowel movements, which is the reason you may have seen it included in many cleanse/detox supplements out there. It is made from the inner husk part of whole oat grains. In addition to this it is also a good source of antioxidants, which are good for overall health in general.
Apple Pectin – Pectin is a type of soluble fiber that is found in fruits, and in this particular case it comes from apples. Yet another good source of soluble fiber to help soften stools if constipated and absorb water if you have diarrhea.
And then some more ingredients, some of which I’m sure you have heard of before, that are included in Internal 911 are…
Will This Formula Actually Work?
There is no doubt that these ingredients are good for digestion and could help with a number of problems. Pretty much no matter what type of problem you are expriencing, these could help restore normal bowel movements as well as cleanse your colon even if you are having normal bowel movements.
They are pretty well known to help cleanse and support health digestion.
HOWEVER, there really isn’t that much to this supplement. The entire blend consists of 1500mg.
If you take an apple, for example, 1 cup of sliced apple contains about 654mg of pectin according to LiveStrong.com. And I’m sure many of you reading this already consume apples on a regular basis and get much more pectin than this supplement will provide you with.
That said, you are getting psyllium, black walnut, bentonite clay and oat bran which most people don’t consume on a daily basis, and maybe have never even had.
So there is definitely some potential benefit from taking this, but the amount it will help is questionable.
*It’s also worth mentioning that the wide variety of ingredients here has the potential to work from a number of different angles.
One of the great things about a natural supplement such as this is that there are no side effects that you have to worry about. None of the ingredients are dosed too high and you should have no problem.
But of course it is always recommended that you consult with a doctor first.
The price you pay per bottle depends on how many bottles you purchase, as you can see…
How long do you have to take it?
They say that you should take this supplement for at least 7 days to start noticing positive effects. However, this is the type of supplement you might want to take for months on months at a time.
It all depends on the person. Some people may need to be pretty much constantly cleansing/detoxing their body to help keep in tip top shape, while others’ bodies may do the job perfectly fine on their own.
What I Like
What I Don’t Like
Well first off, Internal 911 is definitely not a scam. The marketing around this product may be a little bit over-hyped, but I don’t see any reason to call it a scam. The ingredients that it includes are natural, known to work and won’t give you any bad side effects.
But is it worth buying? This is an entirely different questions and the answer is that… Well… It might be.
The thing about cleansing your colon and detoxification is that it is hard to know when it needs done. You might be feeling sluggish because you need a cleanse/detox or you might be feeling sluggish because of allergies or something like that. It is hard to say for certain, but it could very well be worth a try.
I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful at the very least. If interested, you can purchase Internal 911 on the official website here.

Gluco Type 2 is a natural supplement that can supposedly reverse your type 2 diabetes in no time… But can it really? Or is it possible that Gluco Type 2 is just another scam that is going to be a waste of your money?
I know that there are a lot of people promoting this as the greatest supplement ever for diabetes, but you can’t always trust what you hear. Sure, it sounds great that “you can reverse your type II diabetes in less than 15 days”……and if this is actually true then that is great, but what if it isn’t true?
I have exposed many scam supplements before in the past and, honestly, this one seems to be very scammy, which is why I decided to dig a little deeper and write this review.
If you are thinking about possibly buying into this, you are definitely going to want to read this over first. I will be going over what exactly Gluco Type 2 is, whether or not the ingredients work, complaints and more.
But first let’s talk about the ridiculous video presentation and some of the red flags that probably made you suspicious of this all…
You probably came across the video which you can see a screenshot of above. The video presentation makes this supplement sound a little bit too good to be true. And we all know what they say about things that sound too good to be true…. They probably aren’t true!
And there are tons of red flags…
Red Flag #1 – “Big Pharma, Big Medicine, and even Big Governement have been keeping all of this hidden from you”
We are told that “big Pharma” has been stealing from us and that this is the biggest theft in the history of mankind…
We are also told that they have been bribing doctors to prescribe expensive medications that don’t actually make you better, but rather make you more sick so that they can further profit from you.
Now I know it is very true that the pharmaceutical industry has a somewhat “less than ethical” reputation at times, but the problem here is that they just want to make the pharmaceutical industry look bad and don’t really offer any proof to back up these claims.
And… I have heard similar claims with many scammy supplements I have reviewed in the past, such as with Diabetes Destroyer for example.
Red Flag #2 – The Real Cause of Your Type II Diabetes Has Nothing to Do With The Foods You Eat..
What the heck are they talking about here?
This is a really dumb statement and simply not true. Type II diabetes has a lot to do with what you eat and this is pretty well proven with science, even by plenty of independent studies that have not been funded by large pharmaceutical companies.
Red Flag #3 – Michael Bradford Doesn’t Exist
Michael Bradford is the spokesperson in the video. He claims that his wife had diabetes very bad and he was the one that finally figured out this “miracle” treatment.
He claims that the pharmaceutical industry hates him because he is actually trying to help people and that this means less money for them.
HOWEVER, this guy is completely fake. When I was doing my research I looked at the disclaimer and found that they state “Michael Bradford is a pen name”…
Red Flag #4 – Fake Testimonials
Also, on the checkout page they show you some testimonials from people who have supposedly been taking this supplement and getting really good results. HOWEVER, I did a reverse Google image search of one of these testimonials and found that the picture is actually a fake…
It’s a stock photo that anyone can purchase and use online as they wish.
More Red Flags
I’m not going to go over every single red flag but just know that there are plenty of more.
But anyways… Enough about the sales pitch that is full of lies in the misleading information. Let’s talk about the actual product. Does it work?
Let’s find out…
Gluco Type 2 is a 100% natural diabetes treatment supplement created by Phytage Labs, who is the company also behind Tinnitus 911 and Eagle Eye 911, which are natural supplements for tinnitus and vision that I am familiar with.
Overall the supplement really isn’t as bad as you would imagine based on the very scammy sales pitch, but it definitely isn’t as good as you are led to believe either. That said, it does have some potential to lower blood sugar levels and help with diabetes, naturally of course.
The supplement consists of 20 ingredients as you can see below. And don’t worry if you can’t read this, I know it is small print. I will be going over what you need to know below.
Well… I’m not going to go over every single ingredient, because there are a lot (20 in total), but it will go over some of the more main ingredients that you might not know about…
And there are also a lot of well known ingredients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, magnesium, biotin, zinc, manganese and more.
Potential? Yes… But….
So obviously this supplement does have potential. Many of the ingredients are claimed to have antidiabetic effects, and many of them have even been proven to have such effects in scientific studies.
HOWEVER, there is definitely a lack of evidence and another problem is that most of the ingredients are dosed pretty low. Most of the “unusual” ingredients are dosed at around 10 to 50 mg, which really isn’t all that much when you look at how much people were taking in the studies I found.
One of the good things is that there are not any side effects you have to worry about.
I’m sure there might be a few people that experience some minor adverse side effects, but generally speaking all of these natural ingredients shouldn’t pose any threat. That said, of course it is always recommended to consult with a doctor before taking supplements.
The cost depends on how many bottles you buy. The best price, the most bang for your buck, is the 4 bottle option in which you get each bottle at $49.95…
But is just 1 bottle enought?
This is a hard question to answer, but there’s a good chance it won’t be. As I’ve already went over, the studies on these ingredients are limited but many of the ones that are out there are often conducted for longer than one month.
It’s also worth mentioning that there is a 90 day moneyback guarantee…
What I Like
What I Don’t Like
I would not consider Gluco Type 2 a scam. When I first started looking into this supplement I was thinking it probably was because of the absolutely ridiculous video presentation, however it is not.
It definitely does have some potential to treat type 2 diabetes although it is not the miracle worker it is claimed to be.
Will it work for you? The best answer I can give for that is that “it could help”, but definitely is not guaranteed.
Anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Hopefully this gave you a better idea of what you are looking at here. If you do want to give this supplement to try you can purchase Gluco Type 2 on the official website here.
Take care and be sure to share this post to help spread the truth!

Fungus Clear it is said to be a 100% natural and healthy supplement that can clear up your fungal infection in no time, but can it really?
Is this product really as good as people are claiming it is? Or could this be another scam that is just going to be a waste of your money?
I have reviewed quite a few antifungal products over the years and there have been many “cure all” products I have come across that simply do not work as they are said to, and have led to very disappointed customers. So wondering if a product like this actually works is something that everyone should do.
I’m glad you decided to do a little bit of extra research on this and end up landing upon my review here. In this review I’ll be going over what exactly Fungus Clear is, how it works, whether or not it has proven ingredients, concerns and more.
Well obviously you already know that it is a supplement which can supposedly clear up fungal infections, such as toenail fungus. However, it tackles this problem a little bit different than most other antifungal products out on the market.
Fungus Clear is what you call a probiotic and its goal is to help strengthen the immune system so that your body can better fight off infection itself. In addition it is also said to increase skin health, brain health and more.
What is a probiotic?
A probiotic is actually a supplement that you take where you ingest bacteria. Yes, you heard me correctly, you ingest bacteria.
It may sound like something that you wouldn’t want to do, but has actually been proven to be extremely beneficial. The importance of bacteria in our guts plays a big role in our overall health. Humans are not animals that simply live completely by themselves. We all have an entire biome of different bacteria living inside of us at all times, helping us stay healthy and stay alive.
Why is this important?
Now of course not all bacteria is good. You aren’t going to want to ingest something like E. coli, because that could be extremely harmful and could even potentially lead to death.
There are certain bacteria that are good for us and that we live in symbiosis with… And it is these bacteria that are included in probiotics.
It’s not like Fungus Clear is going to introduce a bunch of strange and unusual bacteria into your body. It just provides you with more of the bacteria that you need, which you should already have living inside your gut right now.
The problem that our modern society has is that you don’t get nearly enough of the bacteria needed from food sources, since much of the food that people eat nowadays is highly processed and unnatural. This is why it is important for some people to take probiotics so that they can get their healthy bacteria levels up to where they should be.
The main ingredients, which are bacteria, included in Fungus Clear are…
One of the problems with probiotics is that they simply do not work. The reason that many do not work is because the acid in our stomachs kills them before they ever have a chance to be of any help.
This is why you often see probiotics being sold in yogurt drinks or mixed in with other dairy products. This is because dairy products help neutralize stomach acid so that the probiotics can make their way into the intestines and do their work.
Now Fungus Clear is just being sold in capsule form, with no dairy mixture to neutralize stomach acid. HOWEVER, the probiotics that are included in this supplement, which mostly consist of lactobacillus and bifidobacteria types, are considered “highly resistant” and are able to survive stomach acid, so this is not a problem.
That said, I do have some concerns.
Firstly, the NutraPure company, which this supplement is made by, I really can’t find much information on. Of course this does not mean it is a scam or anything like that, but it is a bit concerning.
It does seem that this company sells CBD oil products and is pretty popular with that, but there just isn’t all that much information out there for me to look into.
Also, this Fungus Clear is marketed in a rather “shady” way. Not only are the claims about this product often blown out of proportion, but I also found that many people promoting it are now directing people to purchase Fungus Hack instead. As I was doing my research I clicked on many links to try to purchase Fungus Clear and was instead directed to purchase this other Fungus Hack product.
Although I do still have some concerns, I do not consider this product a scam and overall it seems to be pretty good. I like the approach that this takes to clearing up fungal infections. Most supplements on the market include a concoction of herbs to strengthen the immune system while this one focuses on strengthening the gut flora via probiotics, which can then boost your immune system.
Is it definitely going to cure your case of fungus? No, there is not any guarantee. However, it definitely “could” help. It does have potential.
But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my honest review and found it helpful. Hopefully now you will be able to make a more informed and better decision when it comes to purchasing this product, if you can even find anywhere to purchase it.
If you are looking for a more reputable product that we recommend for treating toenail fungus be sure to read our review of Emuaid Max.

Can Eagle Eye 911 really improve your eyesight or is this just another scam supplement that is going to be a waste of your money?
That is a big question and it is one that you should definitely be asking yourself. After all, there are plenty of “less than ethical” supplements out there that do not do what they’re supposed to, and of course you don’t want to waste your money on something like this.
And… I’m probably not the only one that came across the video presentation for this supplement and thought it sounded a bit “scammy”.
In this review I’ll be going over what Eagle Eye 911 is, the ingredients and whether or not they actually work, some concerns I have, complaints and more.
But before we get into all of that, let’s first talk about the sales pitch, which is a bit ridiculous in my opinion.
Maybe you have seen it or maybe you haven’t, but there is a video presentation out there that I came across which looks like this…
And as you can see this video is titled “never worry about your eyesight again… guaranteed”.
Really? You’re going to guarantee that whoever takes this supplement will “never” have to worry about their eyesight again. That is quite a bold to claim to make, and honestly it sounds a bit” scammy”.
The spokesperson in the video, who says his name is Dr. Steve Klayman, claims to be a renowned health care practitioner and says that they have put together some new “secret formula” to improving eyesight.
This formula is supposedly so good that it “can give you twice the protection of typical vision supplements” and it is “59 times more vision defense than a best-selling multivitamin”. HOWEVER, these statements are misleading as you will see soon.
The video goes on and on, for what feels like forever, and mostly just repeats the same things over and over again. It was pretty painful to sit through and if you did end up making it through the entire video you should give yourself a pat on the back.
It’s All About Lutein
Most of the focus of the video presentation is on lutein, which is found in green leafy vegetables and is claimed to protect retinal cells from damaging blue light.
There is some talk about other ingredients that are included in this supplement, but the main focus is on lutein… And supposedly this supplement has some “special” form of lutein.
Lots of Talk About How Other Vitamins/Supplements Aren’t Any Good
There it is also a lot of talk about how other multivitamins out there on the market have a cheaper form of lutein which does not absorb well and will not work.
The spokesperson compares it to some random multivitamin and says that Eagle Eye 911 can give you 59 times more eye protecting power, yet this claim is completely unsubstantiated.
You are probably reading my review now because you want the truth and you were suspicious that this might be a scam yourself. The reason for this is probably because there are many red flags that make this seem a bit untrustworthy.
Overall it just seems a little bit too good to be true, does it not? And we all know what they say about things that sound too good to be true.
Also, there are some red flags that you probably are not aware of.
For example, I did a little research into this “Steve Klayman” guy and I am pretty certain that he is a FAKE. There have been more than one picture shown of this guy in different promotional material and the problem is that they show 2 totally different people…Now I’ve come across this sort of thing many times in the past when reviewing potential scam supplements. HOWEVER, this still could potentially be a real doctor. I understand that some people don’t like putting images of themselves all over the Internet, so the image could be a fake for privacy reasons.
But anyways… Enough about the sales pitch… Let’s talk about the actual product and whether or not it is any good…
Eagle Eye 911 is a natural eye support supplement that is manufactured by company called Phytage Labs, which doesn’t exactly have the best reputation.
Although there are many “scammy” things going on here, such as the ridiculous sales pitch, overall the supplement does seem to be something that has potential. It contains proven ingredients, which I will go over now…. and this is the most important thing.
If you can’t read that label, that’s fine, I will go over the ingredients you need to know about, the more important ones…
Lutein is a cartenoid that has been very well proven to benefit eye health. It is also a powerful antioxidant that is located in the eye, so of course it is going to be important for eye health, right?
Eagle Eye 911 provides 20mg of a “special, patented, fully absorbable form of lutein”. 20mg is a good dose, so this is nice to see. HOWEVER, there was no information I could find about it being a “special” form of lutein that is “patented”. I’m not sure how true this statement actually is.
But anyways… Yes, lutein is something that benefits that eyes and this is not just some myth.
The National Eye Institute states that people who supplement lutein are less likely to develop AMD (age-related macular degeneration), which is a major cause of vision loss. This was concluded after an indepth study was conducted by the National Institutes of Health in 2001.
It has also been shown to reduce the risk of cataracts.
2) Bilberry Extract
There is a legend that says airplane pilots in the British Royal Air Force bombed an enemy during WWII with incredible accuracy after eating bilberry jam. They claim their night vision was improved.
This claim has been later proven by science. It can help increase your ability to see at night and holds some powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which is always a good thing.
It has also been shown to reduce eye fatige by a 2015 study published in The Journal of Nutrition, Health, and Aging.
3) Grape Seeds
According to WebMD, grape seed extract can help with eye disease that is related to diabetes.
In a 2011 study published in Molecular Vision, grape seed extract was found to protect the epithelial cells on the lenses of our eyes from oxidative stress and damage. Because of this researchers concluded that it might be a potential effective treatment against the development of cataracs.
4) Vitamin A
Vitamin A is an antioxidant vitamin that is pretty well known to help with eye health. This is what carrots and sweet potatoes have a lot of. And you have probably heard that they are good for your eyes at least once before.
One of the ways that it helps is by protecting the surface of the eye effectively keep away harmful things such as bactaria, viruses, etc. It has also been shown to be effective at reducing inflammation in the eye, which can cause wide array of problems.
Taurine is extremely important for our vision. In fact, it necessary for the chemical reactions that produce our vision, which is why a deficiency in this amino acid is often associated with retinal decline.
Taurin is also a good antixodiant that helps protect the ocular tissue from damage done by free radicals.
Zinc helps bring up vitamin A from the liver to the retina, which then helps to protect the eye. A deficiency in this mineral can lead to cataracts, cloudy vision, poor night vision and so on.
Taking zinc supplements has been shown to slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration, which as I mentioned above is a common problem for many people as they age.
So Do They Work?
There is no doubting the fact that this concoction of natural ingredients definitely has potential to improve vision.
Now is it going to be a guarantee that your vision improves upon taking this? Absolutely not. I know that they say you will “never have to worry about your eyesight again… Guaranteed”, but this is not true.
Hopefully it will work for you, but there is definitely not a guarantee.
The company behind this product is Phytage Labs, which as I mentioned earlier doesn’t exactly have a very good reputation.
I wasn’t able to find any good reviews from people complaining about Eagle Eye 911, however you can see below that another one of their popular products, Tinnitus 911, isn’t exactly very well liked…
I’m very familiar with the product this guy is talking about because I have reviewed it. It gets a heck of a lot of complaints and the main problem that it has is MISLEADING ADVERTISING.
The main reason that Phytage Labs gets a fair amount of negative reviews (for various products) is from the misleading advertising. That said, if you actually know what you’re getting and don’t buy into the over-hyped sales pitch, then you probably won’t be too disappointed.
The cost depends on how many bottles you purchase. The more you purchased the last you have to pay per bottle…
You can find some cheaper alternatives on Amazon but this is not as overpriced as I was thinking at first.
A lot of good alternative products out there are right around the same price.
It’s also worth mentioning that Phytage Labs is offering a 90 day money-back guarantee on Eagle Eye 911…I have no idea the difficulty of actually getting your money back if you try, but it is still reassuring just knowing that they have something like this in place.
I would not call Eagle Eye 911 a scam. In fact, as I’ve mentioned, I do think this supplement has the potential to improve vision. Many of the ingredients are well proven to possess vision-improving properties.
I just don’t get why they can’t promote it anymore straightforward and honest way, instead of the over-the-top sales pitch.
Overall this supplement really doesn’t look too bad. When I first came across this product I thought it was going to be a complete scam, but after digging a little deeper I’ve changed my opinion.
If you want to you can purchase Eagle Eye 911 on the official website here.
But anyways… I hope I’ve given you a more realistic look into this supplement so that you can make a more informed decision.
Comments or questions? Leave them below and I’ll get back to you soon 🙂
Is Myco Ultra really as good as people are saying it is? Or is this just another scam supplement that is going to be a waste of your money?
In this review I'll be going over what you need to know before buying this. I'm glad you took the time to do a little extra research. I'll be going over what exactly this supplement is, the ingredients, whether or not there is any proof that it actually works, what other people are saying about it, complaints and more.
They claim it is the "#1 immunity mushroom supplement" on the market, but of course who knows how true a statement like this actually is. Personally I don't believe this statement because this supplement isn't even all that popular.
But anyways... Myco Ultra is claimed to…
The main focus of this supplement is to improve your immune health.
This is important because the immune system is your body's defense against invaders.... invaders like bacteria, viruses, parasites, fungus and anything that can potentially make you sick.
Many people live a lower level of life for years due to infections they don't even know they have.
Our immune systems are working around the clock, day and night, to keep us healthy and it is important for us to help them do their jobs, which you can do by eating healthy and staying fit.
So basically Myco Ultra is supposed to keep you feeling healthy and good, and they claim that people taking it have experienced increased energy and just an overall better feeling throughout the day.
But this is just what they tell you, and as you probably know you can't always trust what you hear from supplement companies. After all, they are trying to sell their supplements so of course they're going to mostly just talk about all the good things.
Does it REALLY work? Let's find out…
Myco Ultra is an immune boosting supplement that consists of 8 different ingredients, all of which are mushrooms.
Now when most people think of giving their immune system a boost, they usually don't think of mushrooms. They usually think of maybe eating a few extra oranges to get more vitamin C or something along those lines. That said, there is actually quite a bit of scientific evidence showing that certain mushrooms can be effective at giving your immune system the boost it might need.
In the Western world this isn't all that well known, but consuming mushrooms as a traditional Chinese medicine has been around for thousands of years.
To be completely honest, when I first came across this supplement I was thinking it was probably going to be another over-hyped scam, but I actually think it could actually be pretty good for some people with weakened immune systems.
You can take a look at the label for Myco Ultra here...
Now I don't know if you can read that, and if you can't it is okay. I will go over each ingredient.
With each capsule that you take you get a 700 mg blend of the following 8 mushrooms…
Mushrooms like these are a great source of beta-glucans, which have been shown to boost the immune system and help fight off diseases and illness in many studies.
They state that there are no side effects that have been observed.
Now of course there are probably some potential side effects, because it seems like there is always at least someone that has a negative reaction to just about anything, but generally speaking there are not any that you have to worry about.
I don't know the amounts of each ingredient but there can't be that much because the entire mix is only 750mg.
This is one of the big upsides to taking a natural health supplement such as this… No side effects.
Try not to jump out of your seat, because the price is a bit high.
You can purchase one bottle for $60, two bottles for $109.95, or 4 bottles for $173.
Now of course the 4 bottle deal is the best, because you get the most for your money's worth, but that is also a good chunk of money to spend all at once.
When I first saw the price I thought it was pretty darn high, but after looking around at other similar products, such as those on Amazon, I found that it really isn't too bad.
Slightly Cheaper Alternative:
However, if you do want a slightly cheaper alternative then another good choice is Host Defense on Amazon. It has most of the same ingredients plus some, and sells for around $50 for a 30 day supply.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to find much in the way of reviews for Myco Ultra from people who have actually used it, however I was able to find quite a bit of good reviews from similar supplements out there.
Mushroom blends like this seem to be pretty good at giving your immune system a little natural boost. In fact, I'm thinking about buying some to keep on hand when I feel sickness coming on.
As I mentioned earlier, when I first came across this supplement I thought it was just going to be another over-priced scam. However, I was pleasantly surprised after looking into it further.
This is not a scam as far as I see and very well could help give your immune system the boost you have been looking for.
Will it work for everyone? No. But could it work for you? Yes.
Anyways... I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please leave any comments or questions down below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
If you suffer from tinnitus and are looking for treatment you have to be careful with what you buy into. Tinnitus cure scams are running rampant online and, although I am doing my best to expose the scams and warn people, unfortunately a lot of people end up wasting their money.
There seems to be a lot of scams in this particular market. It is probably because it is easiest for scammers to prey upon desperate people. Tinnitus can be one heck of a condition to deal with and many people are willing to try just about anything to get rid of it, and I completely understand that.
In this short article I want to help you avoid the scams. I'll be going over different types of tinnitus scams I have come across, warning signs that you can look for, tips to avoid these types of scams and more.
But first let's talk a little bit about what exactly tinnitus is in the first place…
In most cases tinnitus is the perception of noise or ringing in the ears. This means that the noise doesn't actually exist, but your body is for some reason perceiving that there is a noise, which is usually ringing, buzzing, hissing, humming, etc.
You might be surprised to hear that tinnitus affects about 15-20% of people, according to MayoClinic. Now that is a heck of a lot of people, but the majority have very mild cases and it really doesn't bother that much.
Since you are looking for treatment then your case is probably to the point where it is hard to deal with.
Types of Tinnitus:
There are 2 types of tinnitus that exist, subjective and objective.
Subjective tinnitus is caused by problems in part of the ear or sometimes with the auditory nerves, or even sometimes by the brain and how it interprets signals of sound.
Objective tinnitus has to do with problems in the blood vessels, and this type doctors can actually hear when performing an examination and listening carefully.
So on the one hand you have tinnitus where you hear sounds that don't actually exist, and on the other hand you have tinnitus where there actually is a sound and the problem comes from the blood flow.
The problem with tinnitus, for one, is that it is not very well understood and because of that there aren't any treatments out there that are as effective as we would like to see and that are going to work for everyone.
While it can be treated to some extent, and some people respond much better than others to treatment, it is somewhat of a hit or miss. As I said, it is not very well understood and the fact that there can be many causes makes it more difficult to treat.
Most of the "scammy" tinnitus cures I have come across have been natural cures.
Mostly they consist of supplements, but I've also came across some "protocols", published as e-books, that basically tell you what food to buy in order to cure your tinnitus.
Some of the different "scammy" supplements that I've reviewed on my site here include things like…
And some of the "protocols" that you may or may not have heard of include…
Usually these types of natural cure scams are promoted as being the greatest things ever, usually as some "hidden secret" or something along those lines.
Much of the time they try to scare you into purchasing their product, such as by talking about all of the nasty side effects that prescription medications can have.
A lot of these scams are promoted as "cure all" products. But, since there are many causes of tinnitus, how can one supplement or protocol be the cure to everything?
Now I will say that many of the supplements out there have a wide range of herbs. They are basically a big concoction of herbs that can potentially attack tinnitus from multiple angles, but generally speaking you are not going to find a single treatment that works for everyone.
So if it sounds a little bit too good to be true, and sounds like it can cure the problem for anyone, proceed with caution.
A lot of these tinnitus cure products are promoted with crazy background stories. Many of them feature video presentations where the spokesperson will talk about how they "nearly died" due to their tinnitus, and then went on a lifelong mission to finding a cure.
If the story sounds absolutely ridiculous, maybe is completely made up. A lot of times it is hard to prove such stories false, but I have noticed that they are often used to market scammy products.
Have you come across a cure that is some "ancient secret" or maybe some "hidden secret" that has just been unearthed for the first time in centuries? Yeah… That is probably just another lie.
A lot these "secret" tinnitus curing formula supplements that I have come across have supposedly been found in some remote part of the world, or maybe in some ancient text. But usually it seems that this type of sales pitch is just another lie to get people to buy in.
There are also many products being marketed in a way that paints "big Pharma" to be the bad guys. Often times you hear that "the pharmaceutical industry doesn't want you to know this" and "they might put an end to this at any minute".
They also often make it seem like the pharmaceutical industry is trying to cover up all of the truthful information because they don't want your problem to you away, so that they can keep making money off of you.
However, claims like this are often completely un-backed and unproven. This is a typical fear mongering sales approach to scare you into buying the product as fast as possible.
*And by the way, I am not a big fan of the pharmaceutical industry and make huge fan of natural health alternatives. But unfortunately many of these "natural cures" are scams.
When you come across a potential scam also take notice of the prices. Many of the scammy products I have reviewed act as if there is some huge discount going on.
As an example, they will say you can get 1 bottle for $69 or get 5 bottles for $39 a piece, which would be $195 total.
Now of course buying them in bulk, buying the more expensive 5 bottle deal, gets you the lower price, but is also a heck of a lot more money to spend.
And you may ask yourself… How is this even possible? How can they give such a massive discount? Well… The answer is pretty simple… The product was massively overpriced to begin with.
Now all of those "warning signs" that I just talked about above do not necessarily mean that something is a scam. They are just "signs" that should alert you to proceed with caution, because something could very well could be a scam.
They are red flags I have picked up on having reviewed many such scams over the years.
Just be careful and ALWAYS DO YOUR RESEARCH.
Some of the sales pitches can be incredibly convincing and you may want to go out and purchase whatever it is right away, but always take the time to do a little bit of extra research on your own.
Do a Google search. See what others have to say about the product.
But you also have to be careful with this. You cannot trust every review out there that you find on Google. Based on my experience, there are many more fake reviews than real ones. The fake reviews are written of course because they want to promote the product and make money.
Now something else that you should be aware of is that many of these "scammy" cures that I'm talking about are not complete scams.
They often consist of a concoction of natural ingredients that can potentially treat symptoms of tinnitus. HOWEVER, the main problem with them is that they are marketed in very misleading ways and lead people to believe that they are going to miraculously cure them, and of course they are also usually overpriced.
Now if they were marketed in an honest way that did not give people false hope, and if they were priced appropriately, I would probably have no problem with them.
So what you should take away from all of this is that there are lots of scammy products out there that have some potential to help but are not nearly as great as they may seem. So just be careful and know what to look out for so that you can avoid these sorts of products.
Take care and be sure to leave any comments or questions down below. I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Welcome to my review of Tinnitec!
Does this stuff really work or is Tinnitec a scam? This is the big question that needs to be answered before buying into something like this. I'm sure you have seen your fair share of scam supplements out there, just as I have, so you know that you have to be careful what you buy.
In this review I'll be going over what exactly Tinnitec is, the ingredients and if they actually work, the cost, complaints and more so that you can make a more informed decision as to whether or not you should buy it.
A 100% natural supplement that can cure even chronic cases of tinnitus within days?? Can it really be true?
I'm sure I'm not the only one that was thinking that this sounds a little bit too good to be true after watching the video presentation.
There or several different presentations out there. Two that I came across look like this…
The guy that supposedly created this supplement is named Anthony Romano, as is shown here...
He claims to have discovered a 100% natural and "proven" method to beating tinnitus, and it can "have soothing tinnitus relief FAST"… Within just a couple of days.
We are also told that it "works like nothing you've used before"... But it seems like just about every promotion for supplements out there tells you something like this.
You are reading this review now I am guessing this is because you were suspicious that this could possibly be a scam. I was as well. There were quite a few red flags I came across which seemed a bit "scammy"…
First off, they tell you that "big Pharma" doesn't want you to have this because it gets to the root cause of your tinnitus. They lead you to believe that "big Pharma" doesn't want you to get better because they want to suck every penny out of you that they can.
They also hint that the pharmaceutical industry has been hiding the truth from us… And even say that they will likely try to take down this presentation off of the web.
Although I am a big fan of natural health supplements and do not really agree with many of the things "big Pharma" does, I don't believe what they're telling us here.
I see no proof that the pharmaceutical industry is hiding this information from anyone and I have heard this sort of "big bad Pharma" sales pitch before with other scams I have reviewed in the past, such as Diabetes Destroyer and Memory Repair Protocol. It is typical fear mongering. It seems that they are just trying to scare us into buying into this supplement.
But anyways… Enough about the sales pitch… Let's talk about the actual product and see whether or not Tinnitec actually works…
Tinnitec is a 100% natural supplement sold for the treatment of tinnitus similar to Tinnitus 911 and Ring Ease, which I have reviewed in the past. It consists of a mixture of 20 different ingredients.
While it definitely does have some potential to improve tinnitus and overall health, this is something I don't really recommend all that much just because it is rather expensive and I do not like how it is being marketed, in a very misleading way.
Of course if we really want to know whether or not this stuff works, we have to take a look at the ingredients. As mentioned, there are 20 in this and they include the following…
Now obviously I did not list all 20 ingredients. The reason for this is because I CAN'T FIND THEM ALL. I have searched all over online and cannot find all that much information, besides that listed above.
This is unfortunate but we will do with what we have.
Below the video presentation I noticed a bunch of "scientific references" that supposedly "prove" that Tinnitec works...
HOWEVER, they definitely do NOT offer concrete proof that this is going to work. Most of the "proof" is theoretical, and while "could" be true... there just as in any hard proof of it being so.
I took the liberty to look up some of the studies they have listed and below I briefly summarized them so you can see what their findings were…
It's still mostly theoretical
There is far from concrete evidence proving that Tinnitec is going to be some magical cure for tinnitus.
Also, did you see listed above that the one study they referenced was performed on fruit flies? Yes… On fruit flies.
Now I have no problem with animal studies, such as those performed on rats and mice, being referenced because rats and mice are both mammals that are very similar to humans. However, fruit flies are incredibly different and I can't believe they even mentioned the study. It is very irrelevant.
But anyways... The "proof" I see here is pretty disappointing. This concoction of 20 natural ingredients definitely has potential, and definitely can benefit your health, but it seems that this product is over-hyped.
Much of the focus in the video presentation was on dopamine, which scientists believe may help with conditions like tinnitus. Tinnitec "may" be able to have some benefit in this area.
Potential = Yes
Proven by hard science = No
The cost of Tinnitec depends on how many bottles you purchase. The more you purchase, the better deal you get. At the time of me writing this the options are…
It is pretty expensive, but the good thing is that they do have a 100% moneyback guarantee, no questions asked…
Now how difficult or how easy it is to actually get your money back is something that I do not know. But this money back guarantee still offers some comfort.
The fact that this is all natural is definitely something that I, along with many others, like. Just because something is natural doesn't necessarily mean it is healthy, but generally speaking this does seem to be the case many of the times.
Also, there aren't really any side effects you have to worry about. Sure, you should definitely consult with your doctor before taking anything like this, but most people aren't going to have any problems.
Can Potentially Help from Many Angles
There are many different ingredients that work in many different ways. This is nice to see because there can be different causes of tinnitus that may respond better to different treatments.
The product is definitely marketed a little bit over-the-top. It is marketed as some "miracle cure" that is going to magically cure anyone's tinnitus, but I highly doubt that it will actually work like this.
Obviously it is pretty expensive. I think that is a downside for everyone.
Not Very Transparent
As I went over earlier, I wasn't even able to find a complete list of the ingredients.
You would think they would make this information easily available, but I guess not.
Also, I have no idea how much of each ingredient is included in the bottle. Dosage is important if you want certain ingredients to work as well as possible, so I guess we just have to trust that they put in the right amounts.
I would not call Tinnitec a scam, but I also would not say that it is as great as many people are claiming it is. You have to be careful with what you read on the Internet. I have found many fake reviews out there that just promote it as the greatest thing to have ever blessed this earth, which is not.
Will it work? It could potentially have some positive effects, but I certainly am not going to guarantee anything and there is definitely not concrete proof that it will work. But yes, it could have some positive effects.
Anyhow... I hope you enjoyed my honest review and found at least somewhat helpful. If you do want to purchase Tinnitec you can do so on the official website here.
Take care. And if you have any comments or questions just leave them below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Welcome to my Patriot Flex review!
Can Patriot Flex really get rid of your joint pain or is this another scam product that is going to be a waste of your money?
I don't know about you, but when I first came across this stuff it sounded a little bit too good to be true. It made me suspicious that it could possibly be another scam so I decided to dig a little deeper, to look into it more and really see if it is as good as people are saying.
In this review I'll be going over what Patriot Flex is exactly, the ingredients it has, whether or not it is really as effective as claimed, complaints and more.
Thinking about buying it? You are definitely going to want to read this first.
But before I get into all that, I first want to discuss the sales pitch a bit…
Now there is probably a lot of different promotional material out there, but the sales pitch I came across started out as you can see in the screenshot below…
At first I was wondering why the heck they were talking about some Pennsylvania coal fire, but then they kind of tied it all together and related it to inflammation in the joints.
Basically they were saying that, like this old coal mining town that has had fires burning underground for decades, the inflammation in your joints is also "smoldering" and can flair up at any time.
And of course Patriot Flex can supposedly fix that. They say it can...
The guy saying all of this stuff, who is named Jeff Reagan, is the founder of Patriot Health Alliance (the company that makes Patriot Flex).
He mentions some new "breakthrough" that has been discovered in which researchers have found that the protein complex NF-kB is the "spark" that "ignites" inflammation.
He claims that too much NF-kB makes your body produce more inflammatory triggers which further increases inflammation.
The key to decrease inflammation is to decrease your levels of NF-kB, but of course you don't want to decrease them too much because this protein complex is important for various bodily functions.
He says that the problem is that there aren't any products out on the market yet that target this particular problem… Except for of course Patriot Flex.
First off... The sales pitch sounds a little bit too good to be true and is a tad misleading. While NF-kB has been linked to inflammation, this certainly is not the "only" cause.
Also, after doing a little digging around I was able to find that some of the testimonial images shown on the sales page are fake.
As you can see below, these images are just stock photos that anyone can purchase online and use as they wish…
And by the way, I did a reverse Google image search to find out these images were fake, in case you were wondering.
There are definitely some red flags… BUT this doesn't make it a scam.
So without further ado, let's jump into this review and see whether or not this product is actually worth buying…
Patriot Flex is a roll-on pain relief product that is intended for use on the joints. It is basically a combination of different herbs that come from traditional European, Chinese and Indian medicine. The mixture comes in a roll-on bottle that is very easy to use.
Overall I'm not too impressed with this product. It definitely does have some potential to help with joint pain, but is it going to definitely get rid of your pain in particular? Who knows...
An ingredient called Leopard's Bane is what you could call the "main" ingredient. This has been used since the middle ages and is what we are told will inhibit NF-kB.
It contains what is called helenalin, which is what is responsible for inhibiting NF-kB.
And apparently this can even completely inhibit it's production...
But we don't want that!
We don't want to completely get rid of NF-kB!
Luckily much of what you are told is a bit misleading and the truth is that it will not completely inhibit it.
Leopard's Bane is more commonly known as Arnica montana.
At first I had no idea what this ingredient was until I heard the name Arnica. I am very familiar with this and have even personally used Arnica gel before as a treatment for Achilles tendinitis. I do think it could have had some effect but it was hard to tell honestly.
This is commonly used as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory but clinical trials have shown mixed results as to its effectiveness.
That said, there is a good study published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine that shows it can inhibit NF-kB that I came across.
So there is some "proof", just not as much as I would like to see.
Besides this, there are number of other ingredients in Patriot Flex.
First off, while all of these ingredients are used to treat inflammatory conditions, such as joint pain, there is limited evidence of their effectiveness.
Second, we have no idea how much of each ingredient is actually included in Patriot Flex. The amounts are not listed and this is a problem. I get it, they don't want the competition to see they are "secret formula", but now we have no idea the dosages.
As I am writing this you can purchase one bottle for $33 or 5 bottles for $99, which is obviously the better deal based on how much you are getting.
However, this could just be a marketing stunt, who knows…
100% Natural - Patriot Flex consists of a blend of 100% natural ingredients. Of course just because something is "natural" doesn't mean that it is "good", but generally speaking it does seem to carry this meaning, at least a lot of the time.
The good thing about these natural ingredients is that you are highly unlikely to get any negative side effects from them.
Works from Many Angles - I also like the fact that there are quite a few different ingredients that can potentially attack inflammation from different angles. This is good because inflammation can have many different causes, so having many different potential treatments is obviously a good thing.
Easy to Use - And it is very easy to use. Simply roll it on the area where you are having pain. You don't have to get your hands messy or anything.
Misleading Marketing - The marketing for this product is a bit misleading without a doubt. They really over-hype the heck out of it and make it seem like it is some "miracle cure". They also refer to some of the studies in somewhat misleading ways, as I already went over above.
Rather Expensive - And it is pretty expensive. But I guess if it works it is probably worth it.
Patriot Flex is a concoction of different herbal remedies that come from European, Chinese and Indian traditional medicine. While they do have potential to decrease joint pain, and can attack inflammation from different angles, there is definitely no guarantee that this will work for you.
It's really hard for me to write a good review because I have no idea the dosages of the different ingredients included in this product. I do see that it contains many herbal extracts, which are ultra-concentrated extracts that could be effective, but I just don't know the amounts.
But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my honest review and found it helpful. If interested you can purchase Patriot Flex on the official website.
I'm not going to say "go purchase this right now!" because I don't like the marketing behind this and do think it is a little too expensive. That said, it does have potential as I've stated.
They do you have a 100% moneyback guarantee in place if you decide that you do not like it. However, I have no idea how easy it is to actually get your money back, because often times "moneyback guarantees" aren't quite what the seem.
Is Digestive Freedom Plus really as good as people are claiming it is? Is it really the cure to just about any digestive issue? Or is this all a scam that is just going to be a waste of your money?
It seems that everyone out there is claiming that this product is amazing. I've read through several reviews and most of them have nothing bad to say.
However, doesn't it sound a little bit too good to be true?
Anyways… I thought it did so I decided to do a little more research and find out whether or not Digestive Freedom Plus really is as good as people were saying.
In this review I'll be going over what exactly Digestive Freedom Plus is, the ingredients and whether or not they actually work, complaints and more.
If you are thinking about buying this supplement, you are definitely going to want to read this over first.
But before I get into the review, I first want to go over the sales pitch that I came across for this product and some red flags I noticed, which made me suspicious that it might be a scam.
There are probably a bunch of different promotional materials out there, but what I came across had a headline which I took a screenshot of here…
In the sales pitch they tell you that some "renegade" doctor discovered some new remedy for the entire digestive system.
You are told that antacids, laxatives, fiber… that none of this works. HOWEVER, I beg to differ. All 3... antacids, laxatives, and fiber are well proven to work and can be extremely helpful for a number of digestive issues.
Are they going to work for every single digestive issue out there? Of course not, but they definitely DO WORK, contrary to what they tell you in the sales pitch.
The sales pitch then goes on to claim that there are 4 lies that are preventing your stomach problems from getting better…
Again... This is misleading.
These are definitely NOT lies as they tell you.
Basically what this sales pitch is doing is trying to make you believe that the entire medical establishment is out to get you. They are painting the medical establishment as the bad guys and of course they (Patriot Health Alliance which is the company behind this product) are the good guys.
They try to prove that these are 4 "lies" by citing some research studies that appear to suggest such… HOWEVER, it is very easy to find information online that would prove these are not lies as well.
You always find varying information. One research study may suggest that heartburn is caused by too much of stomach acid, while another may suggest otherwise.
In the sales pitch they are taking advantage of this and acting as if you are being lied to, which is simply not true.
Some other red flags that I came across in the sales pitch include the fact that the testimonial images they show are not real, meaning they are not the people who they claim they are.
For example: The woman pictured below is supposedly named "Cindy G". And supposedly her "acid reflux… has improved". However... As you can see below I was able to find that the image they use for her is not actually her. It is a stock photo that anyone can purchase and use online…
And this testimonial image is also a fake. I was able to find it on some random website as you can see here…
* By the way, I was able to find this out by doing a reverse Google image search, not that it's important.
But anyways… Let's get on to the review. Sure, there are some red flags in the sales pitch that make me a bit suspicious, but this definitely does not mean it is a scam.
Digestive Freedom Plus is a digestive aid supplement, mainly for people over the age of 50. It it is promoted as "not a one trick pony" and can...
... which can lead to higher energy levels and overall better health.
Although I was suspicious beforehand, and the sales pitch made me more suspicious, this supplement seems to decent. It attacks digestive problems from multiple angles and definitely has some potential.
The company behind it, Patriot Health Alliance, is located in Nashville Tennessee and supposedly donates a portion of their earnings to aid our troops and veterans. They also make the popular Patriot Power Greens as well as Patriot Flex.
So obviously if we want to find out if the supplement actually works, we have to take a look at the ingredients that are in it.
And the following ingredients also have proven benefits. I'm not going to go into detail on all of them, but you are more than welcome to look them up for yourself.
Proven Ingredients? Yes
However, I will still say that I do think this product is "over-hyped" a bit. Yes, many of the ingredients are "proven" but there is also a lack of hard scientific evidence backing some of the claims.
Also... there is a problem.
One of the problems that I see with this supplement, which I think you should know, is the fact that they do not state the amount of each ingredient included. They simply state that it contains a "proprietary blend".
This is a pretty big deal because, while many of these ingredients "can" be effective, they need to be taken at the right dosage.
Hopefully we can trust the manufacturer to put in the right amounts of each ingredient.
Also, this "proprietary blend" thing is something that you see quite often. It doesn't necessarily mean that they are trying to hide information from customers. Often times they just don't want to reveal their "secret formula" because then other companies can copy it.
One of the big upsides to a product like this is that it is 100% natural and is very unlikely to produce any negative side effects. Now of course it is always recommended that you consult with your doctor, but generally speaking the majority of people are not going to have any problem taking this.
Also, they made sure not to include things that commonly cause allergies. There is…
Another upside is that Digestive Freedom Plus is extremely easy to take. It comes in a dropper bottle and you can easily add a few drops to a glass of water, some juice, and so on. Or you can put the drops on your tongue directly.
You don't have to worry about swallowing large pills or anything like that, which I know many people have trouble with.
This supplement attacks digestive issues from many different angles, which is the reason it is "not a one trick pony" as they say. It has many ingredients that can benefit the digestive system in many ways.
It could provide relief to someone who has constipation, someone who has diarrhea, someone who has acid reflux, etc. Now of course there is no guarantee that it is going to work for you, but it could very well be possible.
The cost depends on how many bottles you buy. Right now you can buy one bottle for $49.95 or they also have a special going where you can buy 5 bottles for $149, which is obviously the better deal...
But who knows… This could just be a marketing stunt.
200% Money-back Guarantee
They claim to offer a whopping 200% money back guarantee. Yes, a 200% moneyback guarantee!
How is this even possible? I have no idea.
I guess they must really believe in their product or else they make it very difficult for you to get your money back. They state on the website that in order to get a 200% moneyback guarantee you have to mail back the unused bottles and send a one page note explaining why you want your money back.
Digestive Freedom Plus is not a scam the way I see it. While the promotional material out there is a little bit "over-hyped" and makes it seem like the greatest thing that has ever blessed this earth, it definitely does have potential to treat a variety of digestive issues.
I still have concerns with the fact that the amounts of each ingredient are not listed, but like I said, hopefully you can trust the company behind it.
If you do want to purchase Digestive Freedom Plus you can do so on the official website here.
You should also know that there may be cheaper alternative digestion aids. Amazon is a good place to find other options.
I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please leave any comments or questions down below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Is taking nettle root for testosterone effective? Or is this just another un-backed claim that is going to be a waste of your money?
Lets find out…
Nettle is often called "stinging nettle" because, well, it stings. It belongs to the Urticaceae family which has other members that sting as well. As far as its history goes, it has a very long history of medicinal use, dating back to at least the 10th century where it is one of the nine plants in the pagan Anglo-Saxon Nine Herbs Charm.
But nowadays it has many different uses, one of them being a way to increase testosterone levels, which of course is the focus of this article.
Every part of the nettle plant is consumed for one reason or another... the roots, leaves, and stem. It is commonly sold in capsules and also sold as dried leaves which can easily be made into tea.
Testosterone is a sex hormone that is produced in both men and women. Yes, testosterone is also produced in women, just not as much as it is in men.
This hormone is most well-known for regulating sexual behavior and for helping increase muscle mass. Professional bodybuilders and other athletes that are required to pack on muscle often inject themselves with steroids that boost testosterone levels.
However, besides that this hormone is important for a number of other reasons, such as that it affects the mood and boosts energy.
But unfortunately levels drop as we age. This is just part of the natural aging process. And the side effects are not pretty… less energy, less ability to perform in a number of ways, etc.
If you are a member of the human species looking to boost your testosterone with nettle root, unfortunately things aren't looking too good.
A study published in the Journal of Herbal Pharmacotherapy of 558 patients focused on prostate health, but also measured testosterone in the process. The study lasted for 6 months in which patients took 120 mg of nettle 3 times per day. While the nettle supplementation did show positive effects on prostate health, which was the focus of the study, testosterone levels went "unchanged".
And another study published in Urologiia (Russian Journal) showed the same type of results. In this study patients took 120 mg 2 times a day for 48 weeks and this resulted in no effect on testosterone levels.
In the one study people supplemented nettle for 6 months and in the other study they supplemented it for 48 weeks… With no effect shown on testosterone in either… Not good.
However, there is still hope.
Most people reading this probably are humans and not rats, but I can't be completely certain. If you are a rat, you might be in luck.
Nettle seems to prevent the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in rats. The reason this is important is because it means an increase in free testosterone that is moving around in the body and is readily available.
It is thought that it accomplishes this feat by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase, but all of this is largely based on theory.
And in theory it still seems that it could potentially increase test levels in humans althought tests have come back negative.
DHT occurs naturally and is thought to be a main cause of male pattern baldness and prostate tissue growth. This all makes sense because, in the study above that was conducted with 558 patients, nettle was shown to be able to reduce the size of the prostate.
The bottom line is that there is no good evidence showing that nettle root increases testosterone in humans… or any animal, although from the looks of it might be a little bit more promising if you are a rat.
The rat study that has propelled this whole nettle testosterone boosting myth forward wasn't even focused on measuring nettle's effect on test and is not a good study to reference.
There is no debate going on… The stuff does not boost testosterone. There is no good evidence and because of that there is no debate.
ALSO, all of the studies have been performed used extracts and the leaves of the nettle plant, not the roots. I was not able to find any specifically using roots to test it's effectiveness. There likely is some carryover and similar benefits but you never know for sure.
There are many reported benefits to consuming nettle. These include things like…
But as you can see there is a lot of the use of "may" (do this) and "may" (do that). The benefits are understudied and there is much room for more research.
If you are going to add it to your diet there are a variety of ways to go about doing so.
You can buy nettle in a variety of different forms, such as in capsules, raw leaves, and extract.
Raw leaves can be steeped in hot water to make tea or cooked into soups/stews. Capsules can be consumed at any time easily and extract can be mixed in with drinks or dripped onto the tongue for consumption.
There doesn't seem to be any standard dosage.
Based on the suggested serving sizes for products available on the market, it can range a great deal.
I have seen softgel capsules that suggest anywhere from 300 mg to 900 mg per day, raw nettle leaf products that suggest adding 1 teaspoon per cup of water when making tea, and leaf extract that is not comparable to the other forms.
Nettle root is generally safe when consumed.
However, if you are handling the raw plant you might want to be careful. As mentioned earlier, it is called "stinging nettle" for a reason. On the underside of the leaves there are tiny barbs that can prick the skin. This causes different chemicals to be injected and may result in rashes, bumps, hives etc.
That said, even if this does happen it likely will not be anything to concerning, although it could potentially cause a severe allergic reaction.
There is no way that it is worth a try if you are looking to boost testosterone. Sure, there are benefits, as there are with any food, but boosting testosterone is not one of them.
This seems to be another case of an "ancient herb" that has been over-hyped by various companies just looking to turn a profit.
