I am using Activate Xtreme, and it seems to be working pretty well in conjunction with a new diet (or lack thereof).
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.

Yessir, also aids in raising GH levels, which itself helps aid in better sleep and sexual function, as well as recovery.mucuna lends itself to improve sleep quality as well as sexual function

Summer of 2007, I did a straight up comparison thread over there and here, with users logging both.........DT reigns supreme.
Actx has a lot of nettle and yeah so what, but you dont have people talking about Actx is increasing their aggression and training intensity as such with DTH which is a key sign ur test levels is going up sig. Anyway you haven't used both, but thats a nice attempt at taking a crack at the ingredient profile of DTH.

Tried 2 bottles of AX so far, cant say its been brilliant for me, not doubting that it works, but didn't get what I would have expected in terms of Strength gains, Broke a few PR's with it, so thats okay...
Im definately going to be trying out a bottle of DTH after i get back from holiday in mid-march, thinking to do a 2 month run, 1month solo and stack it with something during the 2nd month.

Have not tried DTH yet, But act X is my favorite test booster and probably one of the best supplements I have ever tried.

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.

I've had the good fortune of trying both, and I got faster results with DTH/Sunami than I did with Activate Extreme/Lean Extreme. When the results started to kick in with ActX/Leanx, it was good, but it took a tad over 2 weeks at 4 per day of Actx and 2 LeanX. I still recommend Lean Extreme, as that stuff is plain awesome, I've always responded well to forskoli, and the other stuff it contains is icing on the cake. Activate isn't bad, I just feel DTH is better.
For me aggression isn't everything, it's the only thing in the gym. I never got anywhere in the gym with being passive.Aggression isn't everything.

I really don't understand the emphasis on aggression in lifting. Hell, in anything. I never get hyped up for anything anymore, including football. I'm not eager, I'm not tense, I'm not nervous, and it works great for me.
To each their own, I guess.

Not trying to be an A-hole here, but I enjoy what I do, so it's easy to get hyped up or get in the mood. If your not getting a rush or feeling in the zone, maybe a change up is in order? 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.I never get hyped up for anything anymore, including football.

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.

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.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.

that dudes only 17. still in high school, does AX give you raging mega huge boners? DTH does that quite well.

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
