As a runner and heath-concious person, I do use supplements to support my body as well as eating a lovely fresh healthy diet. Monkey Nutrition offered to give me some advice about performance-boosting supplements from their range. I provided them with an overview of my training requirements and to my surprise they suggested a testosterone booster.
I was hesitant about accepting, after all, I am a lady and don’t really want to turn into a hairy deep-voiced aggressive creature. I did a little research and found that sometimes women do take testosterone for a number of reasons and actually at my age (42) I already have less in my body than I did twenty years ago.
So I said yes and started popping a handful of tablets and capsules at breakfast. There are eight tablets/capsules/softgels to eat at one time which is quite a lot, I thought. I unfortunately had a cold for the first two weeks and felt pretty rotten anyway but I carried on.
I’ve finished the month now and I am happy to report no excessive hair growth or anything worrying. What I have noticed is a slightly more oily skin – which is good because mine is a bit too dry – and an energy boost. Bearing in mind that this is a trial of one person with no control group, I’d say that they did give me an energy boost and I am sure I have lost a bit of belly fat. Considering I was poorly for the first few weeks, and not really exercising, this is a nice surprise for me. I’ve also managed to knock a full minute per mile off my running, but again this could possibly be a coincidence.
I’m not 100% sure but I do think this handful of pills seems to have enhanced my body’s energy levels and performance. It’s certainly made me curious to try other testosterone-boosting supplements, though maybe with a few less pills to take.
