This is a product with such exuberant claims surrounding it that it just sounds “too good to be true”?

It claims to reverse your energy levels by decades, for example: 60-year-old to a 30-year-old!

Also it supposedly enhance the brain function as well as the sexual health.

With such claims it sounds like a wonder drug.


Let’s look at what it contains

  • Cordyceps Cs-4 Mushroom Mycelia (Cordyceps sinensis [Berk.] Sacc.),
  • Pharmanex Asian Ginseng Rb1 (Panax ginseng) Root Extract
  • Pomegranate (Punica granatum) Fruit Extract,

The problem is that for 2 of the 3 ingredients (Cordyceps Cs-4 Mushroom Mycelia & Pharmanex Asian Ginseng Rb1) it is close to impossible to find scientific papers on research and placebo studies on the internet. The other product, Pomegranate, is well-known and most definitely cannot give these fantastic claimed benefits.

Whether Nu Skin did the research or not, if the information cannot be found and verified, it is close to not existing.

I am not talking about all the claims Nu Skin is making about all the research and magnitude of scientists involved, I am talking about the PROOF of these studies.

The conclusion is that this product contains weird ingredients that cannot be verified. This presents multiple concerns. One being that it is impossible to know what kind of side effects this product holds.

Being a very expensive product and with such fantastic claims, I decided to do a real world application and try it out myself.

After the first few (4) months I can say there was a slight increase in energy levels but honestly not close to what the claims are. Being 50, I felt maybe like a 45-year-old.

No mental or sexual health change at all.

Now, for the bad news…

My blood pressure before I started with this product was 130/70 and after the 4 month trial, it rose to an extremely high and damaging 170/115.

This is serious kidney, artery hardening and eye damage territory.

If I want to live another 10 years, I had to immediately stop this “wonder product”.

This is the problem with any product containing such strange ingredients. It is close to impossible to get real scientific proof over the internet as to the side effects and other problems such ingredients can cause and it is pretty much a Russian roulette game you play by putting something like this in your body.

I concede that my experience might not necessarily be the same for everyone and their might even be people who might benefit by this product.

My ratings for this product:

Safety level: 2/10

How close does it get to the claims surrounding it: 2/10


If a product sounds “too good to be true” it IS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! Always…


Keep training hard!Cheers…

In the deepest south of South Africa you will find me. Dwelling in the most beautiful city in the world, Cape Town. I live close to God and try to follow in the footsteps of Christ as led the Holy Spirit. Other passions include Karate and Judo and wrestling (and off course surfing for many years). Karate I did for many years, Judo 4 yrs and for a short period kickboxing until I was knocked silly one time with blood all over and teeth protruding through my lip, but if I have to choose over, I would choose wrestling…simply because of the brutal power against power game with your opponent. Love it. Love my home theatre hobby, my youtube channel and spending time with family! And off course me and my son's new adventure ...and love flying my drone - DJI Phantom 4 Pro For those interested, this blog is my database of all my fitness and transformation knowledge. And NO (!) I am not getting any money for it and neither do I promote anything on it or getting sponsored by anybody. My blog is simply where I want to help other guys living a healthier life and become the best they can be, inside and out and ultimately it is my legacy I want to leave my one and only son – now 13 y/o and already eager to get his 6-pack! So donations very welcome! Just click the donation button... I started my healthy living after a very close call with death at age 40. After much hardship one of my main aims now is to assist other guys with healthy living and transforming themselves inside and out. I don’t know how much grace will still be given me, but I live now every moment to be the best I can be. To be the best bodybuilder I can be, the best father, best husband and best friend to those whom my paths crosses. I want to live a life worth living and not just do what excites me or pleases me. Feel free to contact me directly if you wish. Reading this far, the last bit important info on me you need to know, is that my anchor in life is Jesus Christ. Please bear in mind, English is my 2nd language and as a result their might be spelling, grammatical and other language errors in my blog – I do apologise for this! Wish you all many blessings.
