  • Testofen® Fenugreek Extract (Trigonella foenum-graecum; 50% fenusides)

    Testofen is a scientifically and patented engineered supplement derived from fenugreek seeds.

    Research has shown that nearly 96-98% of all testosterone in the body is bound to various proteins known as albumin and globulin. The remaining 2-4% testosterone, or free testosterone, is able to interact with the body to trigger various physiological changes such as growth, muscle building, and maintenance. 1

    Furthermore, a fraction of the free testosterone is converted into estrogen and DHT. While estrogen is important for bone maintenance and brain function, too much estrogen in men displaces androgen receptors in the body, which in turn may cause erectile muscles (which are loaded with androgen receptors) to atrophy.

    Essentially, too much estrogen = too little testosterone.

    Testofen may slow estrogen conversion, increasing free testosterone levels in the blood stream significantly... by "100% more" and thus, potentially doubling free testosterone levels. 2 It achieves this effect by interacting with aromatase and 5-alpha reductase enzymes, blocking the enzymes without activating them.

    Additional Benefits

    Fenugreek has long been used to enhance sexual desire in both men and women.3 Not only does it also boost testosterone, but also Growth Hormone levels - which can lead to more muscle and less body fat.5 Fenugreek is popularly used among diabetics as a natural way to keep blood sugar levels in check.4

  • Avena Sativa Extract (Oat Straw 100:1)

    In both men AND women, one of the main conditions for having optimal sex drive and desire is to have optimal levels of the hormone, Testosterone. Remember, that both men and women have this hormone, but it's much higher in men.

    Keep in mind that there are two forms of testosterone - TOTAL and FREE. Even if you have high "total" testosterone levels, but most of it is NOT "free" and hence, is "bounded", then you will NOT see many of the positive effects of this powerful hormone. So, the goal is to have BOTH high total and free testosterone levels.

    Avena Sativa works primarily by freeing up bounded testosterone levels, so it can work its magic. Unfortunately, most supplement companies do NOT use the "extracted" form of Avena Sativa and simply use the "root" or "powdered" - which is dry and "dead" and pretty much worthless.

    Another thing you do NOT want to do is use liquid forms of Avena Sativa, as it losses most of its effects within a month or two. That's why we use a VERY HIGH concentration of the EXTRACTED "freeze-dried" technology (it costs us more, but the results are MUCH better and worth it)!

    Basically, we have our "mother company", which is a pharmaceutical company, harvest the herb in Europe during a very specific time of a plant's maturation cycle and test it for the active components, avenacosides A and B. Once this initial batch is tested for maximized and optimal extracts, we then ship the herb to the US, tested it one more time, extract it, treat it to seal in the specific avenacosides, and tested once again.

    The highest extracted dose on the market, combined with precise extraction methods, allows this wonderful herb to work at 100% capacity, without any degradation. Please keep in mind that this is a VERY IMPORTANT herb since it is the only one known to actually FREE UP binded testosterone. NO other herb does this.

    Avena Sativa in this form is expensive ... but it's well worth it. It's why other similar products may be less expensive than AV, but are actually totally worthless products.

  • Bulgarian Tribulus Terrestris Extract (80% Sapongenins + 40% protodioscin)

    Tribulus Terrestris serves as a Luteinizing-hormone secretagogue (LHS). In other words, it causes the release of Luteinizing hormone, which in turn signals the testes to produce more Testosterone.

    And of all the Testosterone boosting compounds and ingredients on the market, Tribulus is the most powerful (IF you use the correct form).

    The brutal reality is, however, most Tribulus products on the market are either completely inactive or inferior herbal substitutes that are brainlessly spiked with protodioscin. Either way, you get the same result – nothing!

    You can't simply take Chinese, or Indian, or "German" plant material and simply spike it with protodioscin to make real Testosterone-boosting Tribulus out of it. That's too easy. That's too dishonest. That would be like packaging spiked lawn clippings and claiming it's real Tribulus.

    Genuine Tribulus that boosts Testosterone is only found in Bulgaria and contains many powerful compounds that are vital for results. And all have to be present in precise amounts in order to achieve the maximum effect.

    AlphaViril Tribulus contains the most potent, full-spectrum extraction of real, Testosterone-boosting Bulgarian Tribulus in the world. Each of the active compounds is present in the required amounts for maximum effects - which is primarily (80% Sapongenins + 40% protodioscin).

    In fact, AlphaViril Tribulus is rated #1 in the world by ChromaDex, which is world renowned for its analytics of herbal materials.

  • Tongkat Ali Extract (Eurycoma Longifolia Jack 100:1)

    Eurycoma longifolia Jack, also known as Tongkat Ali in Malaysia, is a shrub-tree that grows in Malaysia, Burma, Indochina, Thailand, Sumatra, Borneo, and the Philippines [1]. It is traditionally used primarily as an aphrodisiac and for improving general health [2]. Other traditional uses include treatment of aches, persistent fever, malaria, dysentery, glandular swelling, bleeding (as a coagulant), edema, hypertension, syphilitic sores, and ulcers [3-4].

    Tongkat Ali is primarily used as a male aphrodisiac. In Malaysia, it is used to increase virility and sexual prowess and is claimed to improve strength and power during sexual activities [2, 5].

    Many animal studies, both in rats and mice, have found administration of E. longifolia extracts to increase sexual arousal and motivation and frequency of sexual activity [2, 5-6]. These effects are similar to those caused by administration of testosterone, although the effect of Tongkat Ali is not as strong [5]. There are only a few human studies published in peer-reviewed journals, although there are numerous anecdotal reports that would indicate that the aphrodisiac qualities are retained in humans.

    "Tongkat Ali" has been shown to support male hormonal balance (including testosterone availability), libido and performance. (FRIM) showed that the Eurycoma Longifolia Jack or Tongkat Ali (Pasak Bumin) also contains anti-oxidant properties, a high level of SOD (Superoxide Dismutase), an anti-oxidant enzyme.

    Research has shown that Tongkat Ali contains several phytochemicals (plant chemicals) that support healthy testosterone levels (the sex hormone) required for the male sexual functions. It also supports healthy sexual organs and mental alertness.

    The effects of eurycoma were studied on the libido of sexually experienced male rats after dosing them with 200, 400 and 800 mg/kg body weight twice daily for 10 days. Results showed that Eurycoma longifolia produced a dose-dependent increase in mounting frequency of the treated animals. The animals had more sex, more often.

  • AAKG (L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate)

    Before we begin, the Alpha-Ketoglutarate form of L-Arginine is about 3x stronger and is 7x better absorbed than regular Arginine that you see in other brands or by itself.

    L-Arginine is a nonessential amino acid (the body can produce it on its own) and it is necessary for normal functioning of the pituitary gland. Males, whose seminal fluids contain up to 80% of this protein building block, especially need l-arginine for a deficiency could lead to infertility. As people age the production of L-Arginine decreases and many experts believe this is responsible for many degenerative processes related to aging, thus it plays an important role in maintaining health (including sexual health).

    L-Arginine, through its availability and metabolization of nitric oxide (a gas that's responsible for transmitting important signals and regulating cellular functions in the body), has many beneficial effects. It dilates and engorges the blood vessels in the penis and clitoris, facilitating erections in males and genital responsiveness in females.

    This versatile amino acid assists with maximum sexual performance by increasing the supply of nitric oxide in the body, resulting in strong erections and increased sexual functions. L-Arginine has other health-related benefits related to regulating the blood pressure including improving blood flow, reducing plaque build-up, and lowering cholesterol.

    For those who aren't familiar with how the impotency drug Viagra® works, it primarily also works through the nitric oxide (NO) system to increase blood flow and engorge the blood vessels - very similar to L-Arginine.

    One double-blind study found evidence that a combination treatment including arginine could benefit both men AND women. In a four-week, double-blind study, 136 men and 77 women with decreased libido were given either a combination product or placebo (sugar pill). Women taking the arginine product showed greater improvement such as increased reported sexual desire in 71% compared to 22% in the placebo group. Men showed an even greater response - 84% compared to 17.6% in placebo (this could be because men have more muscle mass than women).

    Both groups treated with L-Arginine reported other improvements such as improved satisfaction with sex life, improved frequency of orgasms, and improved clitoral and penis sensation.

  • Vitex Agnus Castus (1.5% Agnusides)

    This herb has many functions and benefits, but the primary is to decreases prolactin levels in the body.

    Prolactin is a hormone found primarily in women, especially during pregnancy. This hormone causes lactation and therefore, produces milk.

    In men, when prolactin levels are high, testosterone levels are low and typically, estrogen and other female hormones are also high. So, the goal is to LOWER prolactin (which is what Vitex Agnus Castus does) and automatically testosterone will also rise.

    Now, the second benefit to low prolactin levels for men is that it reduces the "refractory period" and hence, you can achieve erections quicker and after, after an orgasm. When you're younger, you're "ready to go" after an orgasm a few hours later.

    But as we age, we have to wait longer and longer and therefore, by lowering prolactin you can get erections more often and hence, have sex more often. No need to wait a few days ... now you can satisfy your mate often, daily in fact!

    One side benefit for women, Vitex Agnus Castus greatly reduces PMS "disorders" and side-effects.

    Make sure you only use the highest extract form, which is 1.5% Agnusides.

  • Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium; Icarrin 20% Extract)

    Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium) is a pungent ornamental herb found in Asia and the Mediterranean. The Chinese call it Yin Yang Huo, which loosely means "licentious goat plant." Legend has it that the name "horny goat weed" came from a herder who noticed his goats becoming more sexually active after eating the plant.

    The use of Epimedium as a medicinal herb dates back to at least 400 A.D., where it has been used as a tonic for the reproductive system (boosting libido and treating impotence) and as a rejuvenating tonic (to relieve fatigue).

    Horny Goat Weed is thought to work via modulation of cortisol levels (the primary stress hormone). Under conditions of high stress, the increased cortisol levels are known to cause fatigue, depress sex drive and lower testosterone levels - so lowering cortisol levels back into normal ranges is also thought to help restore normal metabolism, energy levels and libido.

    It is interesting to note that although at least fifteen active compounds have been identified in epimedium extracts, (luteolin, icariin, quercetin, and various epimedins), the specific icariin extract is noted for stimulation of the sex drive and reduction of cortisol levels.

    Again, make sure the product is PURE EXTRACT, not powder or root and at least 20%, which is the highest extract available and what we use in AlphaViril. Anything less and you're wasting money and you'll have to double and triple your dose.

  • Zinmax® Zinc Picolinate

    Most people are deficient in this amazing mineral. Zinc is essential for optimal growth and repair, being involved in the actions of several vital hormones and hundreds of enzymatic reactions in the body.

    In men, zinc plays a significant role in reproductive capacity. Insufficient intake of this mineral quickly lowers testosterone levels and reduces sperm count in otherwise healthy young men — no doubt why oysters, high in zinc, have garnered a reputation as an aphrodisiac!

    So, how does zinc work exactly?

    First, it increases testosterone levels. Secondly, it acts as a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor - which means that it reduces the levels of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone).

    DHT is a "negative" conversion of testosterone and it's known to cause prostate cancer. In fact, DHT is the hormone that causes balding and body hair growth (back, shoulders, ears, etc.)

    Zinc is very important in both health and sex drive and because 87% of more of people are deficient in this amazing mineral, we've added it to AlphaViril. We utilize a patented ( U.S. patent # Re: 33,988 ) form of Zinc, known as Zinmax® - which contains the most potent and absorbable form of zinc, zinc picolinate.

    Don't use any other form - this is the best (and most expensive)!

  • Maca Root (.6% extract)

    Maca Root is believed to help sexual performance and act as an aphrodisiac that boosts libido in both men and women. Chemical research has demonstrated that Maca Root contains a chemical called p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate, which has reputed aphrodisiac properties.

    Because Maca is thought to balance hormonal activity, it is believed to be useful in cases of sterility and other reproductive and sexual disorders. In men, it is believed to help treat male impotence and erectile dysfunction and may, in fact, increase seminal volume and sperm motility. There are also claims that Maca especially enhances sexual performance and endurance.

    Works In Men AND Women

    The April, 2000 issue of Urology reported that the sexual performance claims made by those who used Maca were consistent with the legendary reports coming from Peru. In women, it is said to increase libido, perk up a low sex drive and may, because of the herb's glucosinolate content, enhance fertility. Menopausal women and those who suffer menstrual difficulties may be helped with the use of Maca. Clinical case studies have shown that Maca can help relieve the discomforts of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and menopausal symptoms.

    Clinical & Scientific Studies Agree

    Alkaloids were first shown to work on the hypothalamus-pituitary axis by Dr. Gloria Chacon de Popovici in 1962. In her studies she found maca greatly increased fertility in both sexes.

    The peer reviewed journal "Urology" reported a Chinese University trial which proved an increase of nearly 100% in the sexual frequency of animals that had been fed maca. One study claimed that males had a 180% increase in semen production.

    In females, Dr. Chacon found that maca increased egg follicle maturation and increased the number of follicles. In males, she noticed increased sperm count as well as increased sperm motility. Thus she deduced that maca wasn't producing hormones in either sex, but rather stimulating each sex to respond in a gender appropriate manner.

    Since the results of the Chinese test studies on maca and sex were published, many men across North America are offering their own testimonials: reporting revived sexual abilities and stamina, making 60 feel like 16 again. Many women, soothed by the calming effect of maca provides, claim that maca can ease hormone irregularities, restore muscle tone, add moisture and give a youthful glow to the skin. Never mind about the sex, these benefits are a sign of good endocrine health, which rejuvenates us all.

    Testimonial from a doctor: "We all hear rumors about various products like maca. But using this Peruvian root myself, I personally experienced a significant improvement in erectile tissue response. I call it "nature's answer to Viagra".

  • Horny Goat Weed Extract (30% Icariin Epimedium Sagitattum)

    Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium) is a pungent ornamental herb found in Asia and the Mediterranean. The Chinese call it Yin Yang Huo, which loosely means "licentious goat plant." Legend has it that the name "horny goat weed" came from a herder who noticed his goats becoming more sexually active after eating the plant.

    Whatever the "legend" may be, this herb WORKS!

    The use of Epimedium as a medicinal herb dates back to at least 400 A.D., where it has been used as a tonic for the reproductive system (boosting libido and treating impotence) and as a rejuvenating tonic (to relieve fatigue).

    Horny Goat Weed is thought to work via modulation of cortisol levels (the primary stress hormone). Under conditions of high stress, the increased cortisol levels are known to cause fatigue, depress sex drive and lower testosterone levels - so lowering cortisol levels back into normal ranges is also thought to help restore normal metabolism, energy levels and libido.

    It is interesting to note that although at least fifteen active compounds have been identified in epimedium extracts, (luteolin, icariin, quercetin, and various epimedins), the specific icariin extract is noted for stimulation of the sex drive and reduction of cortisol levels.

    Again, make sure the product is PURE EXTRACT, not powder or root and at least 30%. Anything less and you're wasting money and you'll have to double and triple your dose.

  • Macuna Pruriens (25% L-Dopa)

    Mucuna pruriens contains a compound called L-DOPA which is a direct precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine works as one of the best natural hgh releasers (human growth hormone) by stimulating the pituitary gland to increase it's production. High levels throughout life of the body's own natural growth hormone (not hormones from the synthetic injections) is known as a major key for human longevity.

    Dopamine also increases other youth hormones such as testosterone (it must be mentioned that these increases are never throwing the endocrine system out of balance, merely improving levels which tend to decrease over time in the average person). These resulting increased levels of these hormones from the use of mucuna pruriens extracts, powders and/or raw herbs explains its association with increasing libido, fertility, lean muscle mass, reducing signs of aging such as wrinkles and body fat, increasing bone density and even boosting overall energy levels.

    Animal studies have shown powerful results such as a ten fold increase in mounting frequency by male rats! Also a decrease in post ejaculatory intervals have been observed, meaning that the animals being studied are more quickly able to return to "the task at hand". This could be due to the fact that mucuna pruriens extract basically cures premature ejaculation and the amount of downtown between ejaculations by reducing hypersensitivity in the genitals.

  • Stinging Nettle Root Extract

    Stinging nettle may help in cases of a decreased sex drive due to its ability to keep testosterone active. The lignans found in the herb may also interact with sex hormone-binding globulin, or SHBG, to prevent it from removing testosterone from circulation.

    What this means for you is that the testosterone in your blood will NOT be "bound"... it'll be "free" to move around and available to do it's job. Thus, increasing your libido and sex drive - especially when combined with other ingredients.

    Using stinging nettle as a libido stimulant is often preferred over many other treatments because it does not contribute to benign prostatic hypertrophy.

    Good For Prostate Health

    As an added bonus for men, using this herb may slow the rate at which cells divide in the prostate gland. Receptor sites on the gland, which normally accept growth hormones, are blocked by some compounds in stinging nettles as they bind to these receptors.

    Cell growth in the prostate also relies on specific enzymes. The compounds in the herb may interfere with these enzymes to slow cell division. In conditions such as benign prostatic hypertrophy, urine flow is often difficult due to pressure on the urethra. When the cell growth and division is reduced in the prostate, this pressure is reduced, thus allowing for an easier urine flow.

    Simply stated, it'll help reduce prostate size and the potential for prostate cancer!

  • DIM

    One of the most pervasive medical myths is that Western women are estrogen deficient as they age and need supplementation. On the other hand, one of the most unknown medical facts is that men over 50 generally have higher estrogen levels than their post-menopausal wives! This is called "estrogen dominance".

    The problem in men especially is that estrogen is the OPPOSITE of testosterone. When estrogen is high, testosterone is low. Estrogen causes fat GAIN, muscle LOSS, depression, "man boobs", impotence, and many more "female" side-effects.

    And sadly, the older a man gets + environmental factors, the higher the estrogen levels. Thus, indirectly LOWERING the "manly" hormone of testosterone.

    With the right supplements you can metabolize estrogen naturally and restore your testosterone to estrogen ratio -- thus lowering estrogen to "normal" ranges, while increasing testosterone to optimal ranges.  DIM is a naturally occurring plant compound found in broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, and cabbage. 

    It is often taken in supplement form because you would need to eat large quantities of these vegetables daily in order to provide sufficient DIM to have an effect on estrogen elimination. It breaks down estrogen into safer compounds making it less damaging.  (One study actually showed DIM slowed prostate cancer cell growth by 70%!)

  • Vitamin D-3

    Men with higher levels of vitamin D—the sunshine vitamin—also have higher levels of testosterone, the main male sex hormone responsible for libido (and sperm production), according to new research from Austria. Unfortunately, 87.4% of people are deficient in this vital vitamin!

    The study, published online December 29, 2009, in the journal Clinical Endocrinology, tracked vitamin D and testosterone levels in more than 2,000 men over the course of a year. Stimulated by exposure to direct sun, 90 percent of vitamin D in the body is produced by the skin. And predictably, researchers found that men's vitamin D levels peaked in the month of August, and dropped off in the winter, hitting their lowest levels in March.

    But researchers also found that fluctuations in testosterone levels followed the same pattern across study participants. While it is unclear why vitamin D matters so much, "men who ensure their bodies are ... sufficiently supplied with vitamin D are doing good for their testosterone levels and their libido...," says the Sunlight Research Forum, a Dutch research group commenting on the study.

    While most of us are not able to get direct sunlight on most of our bodies, daily... supplementing your diet with additional Vitamin D-3 will help quickly "fix" this problem and increase your drive and well-being.
