    Maca and goji berries

    Both goji berries and maca, several internet sites claim, raise testosterone and energy levels way above your average level. One site even claimed maca has 'steroidal properties'. These claims are very similar to ZMA.
    Now, ive tried both. Dried goji berries from tescos were infact very good, i felt more alert, energised, confident(im shy as fuck) and ready to go. Asda brand (these are UK based shops/supermarkets) didnt have any effect and tasted worse. Holland &Barret's brand (Neal's Yard, mabe an international brand) must have a pesticide i cant handle because small amounts gave me stomach ache and lots made me throw up, and i usualy have a good stomache...so i cant comment on those.

    Maca was good for not feeling tired, but thats about it that i noticed. I got liquid extract online and was expensive for the size considering i didnt notice a huge effect.

    Anyone else tried these as additions to or as alternatives to suppliments?

    supposedly. Dried out renders different nutritional values opposed to a fresh fruit though.

    and extract? that means that its artificialy recreated in a lab, right? but they word it so tht you dont realise that, or so i heard anyway.

    too bad you cant get the real fresh fruit, and the juice is like 25 actual juice and the rest is sugar, flavour, colour, shit, extra water and whatever

    I can't speak for these things in particular, but every new, exotic fruit or berry or meat nowadays is the greatest fucking antioxidant or liver support or anabolic agent or protein or the best carb etc. It all turns out to be pure marketing bullshit with a placebo effect thrown in.

    I don't know what effect goji berries have on anything except my oatmeal. Organic dried goji berries taste great and are a good alturnative to brown suger in oatmeal. I use almons goji and a scoop of whey protein in my outmeal for a great breakfast. Leaves me smiling everytime.
