Spartagen XT from Edge Bioactives is an herbal supplement that they promise will boost your libido, increase free testosterone, and make you look and feel younger to boot. They claim its ingredients are all-natural and have been scientifically proven to put the “zing” back into your sex life.
What Is Andropause?
Andropause also known as “male menopause” is a condition that is associated with a gradual lowering of testosterone levels in the body. When a man is in his 30s, he starts to lose 1 to 2 percent of his testosterone levels per year. While this loss has been associated with osteoporosis and lower sex drive, the condition itself is controversial. Some people believe that lower testosterone just a natural effect of aging that has no proven connection to the libido and the WHO does not recognize andropause as a disease.
How Spartagen XT Works
Spartagen XT lists many herbal ingredients on its label but states its primary ingredient is Tongkat Ali, which has also been nicknamed “Asian Viagra” and is a popular natural remedy in Malaysia to increase sex drive. Edge Biocactives cites a 2012 study conducted in Malaysia that showed a dramatic increase in free testosterone in 72 men that took Tongkat Ali. However, aside from this one small study, WebMD states that there is insufficient evidence Tongkat Ali boosts testosterone (or lust).
How Much Does Spartagen XT Cost?
$69 for a 1-month supply, $177 for 3 months, $294 for 6 months, all of which include free shipping and 5 e-books that include such titillating titles as “Healthy, Happy, and Hung” and “Superstar Stamina.”
Spartagen XT comes with a 90-day money back guarantee and they say you will get “every single penny” of your money back, even if you just return an empty bottle.
Bottom Line: Is Spartagen XT a Scam?
We all want a healthy, happy sex life and as we grow older we sometimes lose our “mojo,” so it’s easy to see why products like Spartagen XT are so appealing. We appreciate Spartagen XT’s 90-day money back policy, but we feel we should mention a few things.
First, the fine print of the website reads: “Results may vary, and testimonials are not claimed to represent typical results.”
Also, while Spartagen XT has a “Purity Guarantee” seal and promises “Each Batch is Randomly Tested for Quality, Purity, and Potency,” this appears to be an in-house test, meaning Spartagen XT is not tested or verified by an outside laboratory. (According a recent study, many ingredients in herbal supplements are falsely labeled.)
Some reviewers have noted that a lot of similar so-called testosterone-boosting pills contain many of the same natural ingredients as Spartagen XT but at a much lower cost. Others felt that the dosage levels listed on Spartagen XT’s label may be too low to be effective.
Finally, if you are experiencing a deflated libido, there are many other things you can do besides take a pill. A proper diet and regular exercise are always key mood/sex boosters, and you may want to cut back on the booze. Stress and depression can play a factor, as well as good ol’ spousal communication (aka “talk to your wife/girlfriend”); maybe you two can work together to rekindle the flame.
