JXT5 Overview ContentsWhat is JXT5?
What are the ingredients?
Where to buy
Testosterone boosters come in all shapes, sizes, and prices.
You have supplements like Nugenix, which have been staple in the supplement world for 5 years.
You have pills like Andro400, which is only sold online.
And you have testosterone boosters that are sold at GNC.
One such product I recently saw on the shelves was JXT5.
Unlike most testosterone boosters which promote things like increased muscle mass, improved sleep quality, and fat loss, this one was different.
They actually market this as a “Testosterone + Joint” supplement.
Not only will it help with libido, vision, and strength, but it also can help to improve joint mobility, prostate issues, and even your eyesight.
This is the first time I’ve ever heard that claim coming from a testosterone booster, and I’ve reviewed and tested DOZENS.
I got to talking to the GNC rep about it, and he told me that he’s been recommending it to a TON of guys the last few months.
Of course, there’s no way to tell if his opinion is really “unbiased” as GNC has a tendency to pay their sales people well to push certain brands over others.
Still, it got me thinking.
Is JXT5 the next best thing in the testosterone boosting world?
1. What is JXT5?
Made by a company called Metis Nutrition, JXT5 is a 5-in-1 testosterone support product that can help with:
The one pro that JXT5 has going for them is the fact that this supplement doesn’t just make all of the usual promises of increased libido, bigger muscles, and reduce fat.
Unlike practically EVERY testosterone booster I’ve reviewed, this one promises to ALSO help with joint relief.
It landed on the shelves at GNC just a few years ago, and contains a VERY extensive blend of ingredients.
2. Ingredients In JXT5
The standard ingredients in this supplement include Vitamins B6, B12, Calcium, Iron, and Chromium.
Big deal, right?
You can find those ingredients in your typical multi-vitamin.
But that’s not what makes JXT5 tick.
Instead, it’s broken down into many sub-units of a proprietary blend that is one of the biggest list of ingredients I’ve ever seen.
First off, here’s a snapshot of the label:
Surge-T Testosterone + Libido Blend
This particular blend is made up of the following ingredients:
- Fenugreek extract
- Purified Shilajit
- Tribulus Terrestris
- Eurycoma longifolia
I’m not going to get into the nitty-gritty details about how Fenugreek works, but I have a very extensive article on that here in case you’re interested.
In short, Fenugreek has a number of reported benefits, including:
- Lowers cholesterol
- Reduces inflammation
- Improved exercise and athletic performance
- Increased libido
The jury is still out on whether or not it can REALLY make a solid impact on your testosterone levels.
With that said, there have been a few studies noting both an increase in Total testosterone, as well as bioavailable testosterone.
The 2nd proprietary blend in JXT5 is called Trib-T complex.
Here we have a wider list of ingredients that includes:
- Tribulus Terrestris fruit extract
- Tribulus seed extract
- Pygeum africanum bark extract
- Nettle leaf extract
- Tongkat Ali (otherwise known as Eurycoma Longifolia)
I have written about Tribulus Terrestris pretty extensively, and just like with Fenugreek it’s included in dozens of other testosterone boosters and sexual support supplements.
Tribulus is another one of those controversial ingredients that has it’s proponents AND opponents.
For example, the guys over at Legion Athletics examined 28 different studies on Tribulus’ effect on testosterone, and came to the following conclusions:
Many studies have been conducted on tribulus and it seems clear that it doesn’t increase testosterone.
However, they do correctly note that Tribulus DOES have the ability to help with sexual dysfunction issues.
I’ve actually been saying this for years.
While Tribulus Terrestris doesn’t actually have a firm impact on your testosterone numbers, it DOES mimic the effects of increased testosterone.
Isn’t that all that really matters?
Joint Support Blend
JXT5 also contains a number of potent joint relief extracts, including:
- Calcium Fructoborate
- Turmeric Root
- Blood Orange fruit extract
- Hydrolyzed Chicken collagen
I’m not too well-versed on joint relief supplements, so forgive me on my lack of understanding on how these are supposed to work.
I googled “best joint relief herbs” and was a bit surprised at the results.
The only ingredient in JXT5 that I kept coming across as a joint reliever was Turmeric root.
On Arthritis.org, they list herbs like S-adenosylmethionine, Boswellia Serate, and Capsaicin as being effective arthritis and joint pain relievers.
But none of these other ingredients made the cut.
Prostate and Liver Support Blend
Prostate problems tend to affect guys older than 60 years old, with about 1/2 having symptoms of BPH.
While BPH and ED are 2 different issues, they ARE somewhat interconnected.
For example, certain types of medications used to combat BPH list erectile dysfunction as a side effect.
My guess is JXT5 included this formula to help relieve prostate issues, and improve overall quality of life.
The complete prostate and liver support blend includes the following:
- Milk thistle
- Calcium D-Glucarate
- Tomato fruit extract
- Saw Palmetto
Unlike with the joint support blend above, most (if not ALL) of these ingredients have been shown to help with prostate and liver issues.
As men age, typically they start to see their testosterone levels fall while their estrogen levels rise.
This increase in estrogen CAN be stopped, however.
This proprietary blend includes only 2 ingredients:
- Diindolymethane (DIM)
Diindolymethane is the primary ingredient here.
Not only has it been shown to block estrogen effects under certain conditions, but it’s also been shown effective at helping to prevent an enlarged prostate.
Occular Health Blend
Another thing to start going as we age is eyesight, which undoubtedly is why JXT5 decided to include this in their supplement.
Rounding out the formula, the Occular health blend contains the following ingredients:
- Wild Bilberry
When it comes to ocular health, Marigold has an absolute monopoly.
According to several sources, the 2 main ingredients found in eye health supplements are lutein and zeaxanthin.
Do you know where these two ingredients most commonly occur?
That’s right, in Marigold flowers.
3. What do the JXT5 reviews have to say?
There’s only a few places that are pumping out credible reviews of JXT5.
On the GNC website, it’s rated an average of 4 out of 5 stars, with a total of 28 reviews.
You’ll find a wide array of opinions on it, with statements like “Awesome results” to “It did nothing”.
One thing I did note on the GNC website was that the vast majority of reviews were positive.
Not only did many users report feeling increase energy levels and improved mood, but I saw numerous instances where there was significant joint pain and tendon relief.
One guy even mentioned that JXT5 was quite literally the ONLY supplement that didn’t interfere with his prostate medication.
One guy claimed that 1-star JXT5 reviews were being removed from the GNC website, but I couldn’t find any evidence of that.
4. Are There Any Side Effects?
As with literally ANY supplement, side effects are possible with JXT5.
They even explicitly mention some of them on the bottle, which include:
- Hair loss
- Hair growth in females
- Increased levels of estrogen
You should also discontinue use and consult a physician if you have any of the following symptoms:
- Rapid heartbeat
- Blurred vision
5. Where to buy JXT5
As of this review, JXT5 is available both on the GNC website and in stores for $89.99. You can also find it on Amazon a bit cheaper, with the average price being $73 with free shipping.
You used to be able to find it on the Walmart website, but apparently it’ no longer available.
It’s also available on the official Metis Nutrition website (www.MetisNutrition.com) for the same price.
The nice thing about ordering JXT5 directly from Metis Nutrition is that they back their product with a 30 day money back guarantee.
However, be sure to hang on to the bottle because they do require you to send it back to them to receive a refund.
I have to say, JXT5 looks pretty promising.
It’s not everyday that I see an all-in-one testosterone booster like this, and I do appreciate the unique angle they’re putting on it.
My biggest problem with JXT5 is the price. At close to $90 for a one month supply, it’s downright outrageous.
With that said, it DOES contain a number of ingredients that actually can help to improve libido and joint mobility.
Another thing I noticed was that the VAST majority of guys that seemed to have a positive experience with JXT5 were typically around 50 years of age and older.
Does this mean that it will only work in older gentleman? Not by a long shot.
But I do see the trend.
If price is not an issue for you, and you also have joint / prostate problems, it may be worth giving it a shot.
