TEST PM by Jacked Factory – Full Review and In-Depth Look
Jacked Factory are an up and coming supplement company that are creating an excellent reputation for themselves by delivering products that work very well.
They are open and honest about exactly what goes into their supplements, and why they have been.
They also show the dosage amounts in each capsule, which is something that many supplement companies avoid by creating proprietary blends. Jacked Factory avoids this, and it is a credit to the company that they do.
TEST PM is a testosterone booster and sleep aid supplement that promises to: support optimal testosterone levels, promote relaxation and better sleep, and improve your physique ( as a result of the previously mentioned benefits).
In this article we are going to look at all of the ingredients listed, and then we are going to review the product as a whole.
Most supplements by Jacked Factory contain the bare minimum of ingredients necessary for success, and the company is proud of the fact that it doesn’t use any fillers. TEST PM is actually quite high in ingredients compared to some of their other products, containing eight. These are: Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Zinc (all three ingredients combined make ZMA a popular sleep aid supplement), Ashwagandha Root Extract, Safed Musli Root Extract, L-Theanine, Melatonin, and Bioperine.
The last ingredient on this list (Bioperine) is black pepper fruit extract, and it is used by supplement companies to increase absorption. Other than this (admittedly very useful) effect, it has no other specific benefit so we won’t look at it in any detail.
Ingredient #1. ZMA (Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin B6)
ZMA is one of the few supplements that is met with near-universal approval. It is taken by many people to help improve their sleep quality, the Zinc can also help increase testosterone and growth hormone levels . Zinc and Magnesium are two of the most common deficiencies in people who train regularly, so having them in this supplement is a great idea. Their ability to increase testosterone and improve sleep quality make them a no-brainer.
Ingredient #2. Ashwagandha Root Extract (250mg)
Ashwagandha root has many benefits, there is some evidence that it can increase testosterone levels, but it is mainly used to combat stress. Studies have shown that it can reduce cortisol levels (that can lower testosterone by attacking the testes), reduce fatigue, lower blood pressure, and reduce anxiety . You can see why taking a supplement with Ashwagandha root extract in it just before bed would be a good idea.
Ingredient #3. Safed Musli Root Extract (250mg)
Mainly seen as an aphrodisiac, Safed Musli is an Indian herb that Jacked Factory have used in a few of their products now. There is a possibility that it may increase testosterone, but no evidence from human studies. It’s basically just herbal Viagra, but maybe that’s just what you want before bed! Ingredient #4.
Often taken alongside caffeine as a way to avoid the downsides (jitters, nausea etc) but obviously there is no caffeine in TEST PM! Theanine has been shown to increase relaxation, reduce anxiety, and improve sleep quality. In many ways it is the perfect ingredient to take before bed.
Ingredient #5. Melatonin (5mg)
Melatonin is a sleep-aid that is often taken to create normal sleeping patterns, it can speed up the amount of time it takes to get to sleep, and it can help fight insomnia. It has no direct affect on testosterone, but as with Theanine and Ashwagandha root it has an indirect affect – because good sleep can lead to increased testosterone levels the next day.
TEST PM should be seen as an excellent sleeping aid, which will improve recovery from exercise. It may increase testosterone but not directly. Considering a good night’s sleep is one of the best ways to increase testosterone and growth hormone levels, you can see why it would be advantageous to add TEST to your supplement collection.
