Review Overview – What Does Revolution PCT Black do?
If you’re looking on Amazon for a PCT, chances are you’ve come across Revolution PCT Black.
Usually sold in a combo pack with Pure Test from FINAFLEX, (which is just D-Aspartic Acid) this supplement aims to:
- Raise Energy Levels
- Increase Testosterone
- Block Estrogen
- Protect Prostate
All the kind of things we’re looking for after coming off a cycle, however, whether it’s effective or not is a whole other story.
The only way to know for sure is by looking into the ingredients that go into this supplement and how effective they are.
How does Revolution PCT Black work?
PCT Black is recommend at the dose of 1 serving of 2 capsules a day for 4 weeks.
I’m not totally on board with these single serving products – they don’t do the best job for testosterone levels. A good recovery supplement needs to have 3 – 4 servings a day to keep the body constantly supplied with the nutrients it needs to keep T-levels on the rise and estrogen at bay.
Whereas one serving a day gives opportunity for T-levels to fall back and estrogen to take control.
That aside the ingredients in this product looks good, but I have an issue with the proprietary blends FINAFLEX have employed – we don’t how much we’re getting of each ingredient and therefore we don’t know how effective it will be.
All that said the overall product looks underdosed – especially the D-Aspartic Acid which is split over a 325mg blend.
These were the best proven ingredients in the product:
D-Aspartic Acid – A great one for restarting T-level production. This amino acid promotes the luteinzing hormone (LH) in the body. This is the precursor to testosterone and growth hormone and has been proven in multiple clinical studies. However it has only been see to have the most effect around 2g doses or higher. Nowhere near what Revolution PCT provides.
Milk Thistle – Great for protecting the liver, especially after any methylated prohormones. It promotes liver functions and help fight against whatever toxins in the liver are causing hepatic damage. Protein synthesis is also supported.
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine – This is another component that helps against toxins in the liver. NAC is a potent anti-oxidant and protect against further damage after your cycle.
Saw Palmetto – This one for the prostate, which can become enlarged after a cycle of prohormones. As your prostate recovered Saw Palmetto helps with any urinary symptoms and flow problems that you may encounter after a cycle.
Stinging Nettle – Known for it’s ability to tackle estrogen. Stinging Nettle inhibits the enzyme which turns testosterone into estrogen – essential to have on board after a cycle. It has also been seen to help regulate blood pressure, which is useful as BP can be higher after a cycle.
Arimistane – Contains an amount of DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone); a naturally occurring hormone that can change into both estrogen or testosterone depending on what the body needs. However, as this product only contains 50mg, we’re unsure if it’ll be effective enough for a full cycle of PCT as it has been seen to be unreliable in its effects.
Honorable mention of Eurcoma Longifolia (Longjack) for it’s ability to improve libido.
Are there Side Effects?
My problem with it is that it’s under-dosed. However when looking around on forums for information I came across this unsettling post:
This is from a few years ago so it may be made using a different formula now, but you should still be cautious.
Arimistane itself is also a problem. Although unreliable by nature, it has been seen in some cases to lead to erectile dysfunction and complete loss of sex drive – the exact opposite of what you want after a cycle.
How long should you use it for?
The company recommend a month, but I feel for a full recovery using PCT supplements takes around 3 months for the best results.
How much does it cost?
Currently on Amazon it’s $29.99, however I feel it’s this cheap due to it being under-dosed/ineffective.
Revolution PCT Black Review Conclusion
If you’re looking to use this product for PCT I suggest you look elsewhere.
Sure it uses good ingredients, a lot of which are proven to help hormones after a cycle, but not nearly enough of them are used in this product.
The serving suggestions are off as well. You’ll need a lot more than dose a day to fully recover from prohormones – the idea is to keep recovery constant, giving the body exactly what it needs all the time so it can constantly progress.
What you want is a PCT that uses high dosages of what you need and has constant servings.
