About Alpha XTRM
Alpha XTRM is a nutritional supplement that’s claimed to increase your strength, boost your libido and sex drive, burn fat, improve your energy and stamina, and help you achieve stronger, harder muscles.
In order to accomplish this, Alpha XTRM contains magnesium stearate, which is claimed to help you exercise longer and make the most out of every workout, so that you can achieve results quicker. All you have to do is take the supplement daily and exercise like normal.
If you’re a 10-pound weakling, you want results as fast as possible. If you’ve been working out for years, you still want to achieve the most gains from each of your workouts.
But can Alpha XTRM actually help you “achieve your ideal body,” or is it a highly overpriced scam? Let’s start by looking at the supplement’s ingredients.
What Ingredients Does Alpha XTRM Contain? Are They Effective?
Based on text from the Alpha XTRM website, the only ingredient we’re told about is magnesium stearate. While this essential mineral is useful for treating a lot of things, including constipation, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, and more, increasing muscle mass or boosting energy (or any of the other claims made by the manufacturer) are not among them.
However, at the bottom of the Alpha XTRM website, there are 2 links listed, supposedly to support the company’s claims:
- A March 2010 article outlining the possible anti-obesity benefits of l-arginine.
- A 1999 study showing that l-arginine may help men suffering from erectile dysfunction.
L-arginine is an amino acid that’s converted into nitric oxide in your body. Then, this nitric oxide widens blood vessels, which improves blood flow, and can even stimulate the release of growth hormone. From this perspective, l-arginine can effectively treat chest pain, high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction, and more, although it won’t provide increase muscle mass or stamina, as claimed by Alpha XTRM’s manufacturer.

For now, although Alpha XTRM probably won’t work as advertised, is there anything that will?
Are There Any Other Methods of Boosting Your Health?
Reality check: If you’re looking to increase muscle mass, boost your energy, and send your libido through the roof, you almost certainly won’t be able to accomplish all of these simply by taking a supplement—whether Alpha XTRM or anything else.
Instead, it will take a lifestyle shift to achieve increased muscle mass, such as regularly working out, eating a healthy diet (including plenty of protein), drinking enough water and more. In fact, by following these same guidelines, you can also increase your energy levels and your libido. After all, good health can impact our lives in more ways than one.
Before changing your diet or exercise habits though, be sure to consult with your physician, who might have better recommendations based on your specific diagnosis.

A Quick Note about Free Trials
We’ve talked a great about free trials in the past, and how they’re often ways to make you pay vastly overinflated prices and loop you into recurring shipments, which you can read more about in Think that Free Trial is a Good Idea?
In Exposing the Widespread Scam of Anti-Aging Products & Free Trials, we also talked about how this tactic is widespread within the anti-aging industry, but there truth is that it’s also found in thousands of nutritional supplements, from workout supplements like Alpha XTRM to weight loss and detoxification supplements.
The point is this: Free trials are rarely a good idea, because they’re rarely everything they’re cracked up to be. As a result, we typically recommend avoiding products sold only through free trials and autoship programs.
Is Alpha XTRM a Scam?
Let’s do the math: When it comes to Alpha XTRM, we only know about two of the ingredients it contains—neither of which have enough clinical evidence showing them to provide any of the benefits claimed by the manufacturer—and it comes at an extraordinarily high price. In fact, Alpha XTRM is one of the highest priced nutritional supplements we’ve reviewed to date.
Considering this, it’s our opinion that Alpha XTRM is a scam and should be avoided.
