    While I cannot definitively say Activate Xtreme is better than DTH for strength reasons, I can infer with user feedback (my older brother had tried both) and the ingredient profile. The concentrations of maca, icariin and avena sativa lend themselves to libido increase. Tribulus has never been proven to work as it's intended, but is also a libido booster. Longjack, dodder and nettle are the ingredients in DTH that would raise testosterone levels, but given the long blend totaling 1966mg, it would be very hard for DTH to include a significant amount of each without expense to the effectiveness of the other ingredients. DIM decreases estrogen, rhodiola increases endurance, rosemary purportedly "contains numerous anti-aging constituents and significant 5-LO inhibitors", lecithin, capsicum (assuming it is the only plausible option, cayenne) and ginger are fat metabolics, panax ginseng is an energy/anti-fatigue supplement, ginkgo biloba improves blood flow to the brain and appendages, mucuna lends itself to improve sleep quality as well as sexual function, bacopa and gynostemma are other cognitive-aids, bioperine may improve amino acid absorption, and ala improves insulin sensitivity.

    Activate's heavy concentration of the tried-and-true nettle, as well as basella alba, make it, in my mind, a better testosterone boosting supplement.
    Excellent breakdown, but the truth is that knowing the effect of each individual ingredient in a supplement can mean little in relation to the effects of the supplement as a whole.
    Here's a simple example. Caffeine. Caffeine when used alone is completely different than when used in conjunction with a NSAID. Caffeine alone is a stimulant, which will generally increase sensitivity and do little as an anti-inflammatory or pain reliever. However, caffeine is often added to aspirin, ibuprofen, ect. and greatly increases their effectiveness.

    I guess my point is this: Knowing what you are putting into your body is important, but you really can't make a fair judgment in terms of effectiveness until you actually try it yourself.

    Hah, nice pitch. I'm kept on a sort of even keel. Nerves don't really get to me, and I kind of like it that way, which isn't to say I'm a stoic robot or anything; I bawled my eyes out on my last football game. I don't think any supplement will change my mentality.

That's what I do when something loses it's luster for me. I can understand you not understanding aggression, as there is a fine line there with how well it helps you perform, or if you take it too far and it detracts from your performance or endangers your well being. You said you don't get "Hyped up anymore," but I'm sure you remember how cool it was too feel that way. I'm not criticizing you, just saying your take on it is different, and there's certainly nothing wrong with that.
    Yeah, I guess I remember how it used to feel. I used to shake. Now it's just different, and I can't pin it on any one thing except personal change, really.

    Good point, maybe I'll try it at some point in the future, but it's a bit expensive and not high enough on my priority list yet.

    $42 for something that works at 3 tabs a day and comes 120ct isnt expensive. Now if thats "expensive" to you but paying $32 for something in 120ct and u have to take 6caps a day for any results at all is better, then u dont understand basic math. But most consumers buy on total price, value.

    Also training intensity/aggression in the gym is nothing like "ECA" stack energy. I can be on DTH and go in the gym calm as hell, but when I put on my Ipod and start lifting all I want to hear is aggressive music, and hit each set back to back eventhough my body is saying take a rest between sets.

    Good point, synergy is often overlooked, and not just in the supp industry. Your chains only as strong as it's weakest link.

    And you evidently don't understand basic grammar, but I haven't said anything about that. I take 4/day for $29.95 which lasts 1 month, so it's $1/day. You would take 3/day for $42.95 for 40 days with DTH, making it $1.07/day. DTH is more expensive than what I bought Activate Xtreme for, maybe that breakdown is one you understand.

    and if actx is what you want to take no one on here should give a damn, it's your life. all people are saying [at least for my part] is dth may be a better choice, what you choose to do with the information is all on you.

    Right. I may try it sometime in the future, but as I previously stated, it's not high enough on my priority list to be included in the budget.

    Ive taken both.

    Not the latest version of DTH, tho I have 4 bottles here.

    I actually stopped taking the last version of DTH, due to having a serious pain in my left testie! It was unbearable at times!!

    So it was doing something, I didnt notice much but generally I have high test levels, and no test booster has ever worked for me.

    I tried Activate Extreme and It did 0 for me.

    Not much of a review.. but I guess DTH was doing something to my balls! lol

    I was emailing you about it, I went to only 3/d! It kept happening!

    Its weird, but the times ive taken test boosters, I actually feel shut down.. if this makes sense. My balls are normally tighten! I dont feel anything and then towards the end of a product like the last week, Ill be ultra horny and aggressive!

    Not sure. Ill be the new DTH a try soon tho! I might run it along side JP8.

    You assumed I was a woefully uninformed teen, and now that I break it down piece-by-piece, you just believe what you want to believe.

He gives well-thought out and detailed logs (whether it be a supplement review or training thread). Plus he's practicing to get his masters in Nutrition/Exercise Science if I remember correctly.

    One reason that DTH causes increased aggression is the tribulus content of the product, undoubtedly. So, no, increased aggression is not a key that your testosterone is going up, as there's been no proven correlation between trib and raised testosterone. Good shot though

    MrBrightside, we can go back and forth all day long over this 'til everyone is blue in the face,but seriously, what's the point? I would recommend doing what I did, and trying them both, or in your case, giving DTH a try. Last time I checked, Chuck guarantees his products. I've had the pleasure of using both, and DTH did more for me, faster for me, than AX. AX was fine by me, but it took a day over 2 weeks for anything to really get going, where as with DTH, the first full day of doing made it apparent it was already going to town. As for the Tribulus doing nothing, I for one believe in the synergy of things. By itself, it might not seem impressive, but having something in the mix to keep your libido up (which can crash when raising/freeing test) and increase aggression ( good motivation is key) is where it shines. Some companies get by on using it as their main ingredient (see Prime) with purported good/excellent results, so obviously, it's not all hype, and granted, some will respond better than others, that's just natural. For me personally, I've always responded very well to it, but I build up a tolerance to it very quickly, as with most things. Dth isn't just a simple "Test Booster", it's a good job at covering all the bases within reason. My libido crashed after the third week of AX, but everything else was fine. Personally, I feel DTH is a great buy at the price, as it didn't take 2 weeks to kick in. Granted, I could have taken 6 AX per day, but I prefer to take the minimal amount to get results, as, like I said, I build a tolerance quickly. 2 DTH per day was very noticeable for me, so I view it as being far more cost effective. For me, that equates to 15 days of AX, or over 60 days of DTH ( since I take the 5th or 6 day off). Seriously though, give it a whirl, I did and I'm glad. I will say this though, I love Lean Extreme!!

    Alright man, that's completely fine. DTH might work better! My original contention was that Act X looks better in the strength department and DTH looks better in sexual function/libido. I really didn't knock it; I picked apart the ingredients to justify my reasoning after I was swarmed. I didn't throw the first insult so I think it's pretty ridiculous that I'm getting ganged and negged when I've provided sufficient reasoning for my posts.

    And btw, the trib in Prime is of a different family, Tribulus Aquaticus I believe.

    Well I am getting my DTH tomorrow so I will be able to see how it works for me. I havent tried ACTX though so no comparison here. This will be my first test booster of any kind so I am pretty excited to see what happens.

    the bickering is getting old... the last page or two is full of it =/ everyone is entitled to their own opinion. its not that big of a deal. people will believe/feel what they want until both products have been tried out. for me personally, its almost a coin flip on the two. both very good products and cannot go wrong with either one.
