Does EPO-Boost Work?


Epo-Boost Image 1

When it comes to endurance, nothing beats EPO (Erythropoietin). EPO is a hormone made in the kidney. It increases the production of red blood cells within your bone marrow. Normally, kidney cells detect when oxygen levels in the blood are low, and put out more EPO to counter this, since oxygen is carried by red blood cells. But what if a supplement could give you not only “enough” EPO, but more?You’d have more stamina and endurance to win the race, beat the competition, or hit a new personal record.


Benefits of EPO-Boost


EPO-Boost is an exercise performance enhancing supplement designed to increase your body’s production of EPO, thereby increasing the number of red blood cells in the bloodstream. It is a very targeted supplement that basically focuses almost exclusively on only this benefit.


By increasing EPO levels, you get more red blood cells in your blood, with more oxygen to keep your muscles from hitting levels of fatigue that would cause you to slow down or stop your workout. When EPO levels are up, endurance is up.


EPO-Boost IngredientsEPO-Boost Ingredients


The primary active ingredient in EPO-Boost is Echinacea Purpurea (1) which has been shown to increase EPO production in athletes in a significant way.


Alongside the Echinacea, there is an extended formula that includes:


  • Vitamin B3, B6, B12, Inositol, Folate, and Boron (2), which are all involved in the production of healthy red blood cells.
  • Dandelion, YD Extrace, Vitamin B-3, Vitamin C, Nickel, and Iron (3), which are all involved in creating a supportive environment for iron absorption.
  • Lycopene, Lutein, Paba, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and Choline which are antioxidants that work to combat inflammation which would create a negative environment for healthy red blood cell production.


How to Use EPO-Boost


Instructions advise you to take 2 EPO-Boost capsules twice a day with meals for a total of 4 capsules a day. It’s important to take it daily, and you should see results in about 4 weeks.


EPO-Boost Warnings


It’s vital to keep EPO-Boost away from children as too big an increase in iron can cause fatal poisoning in children under the age of 6.


EPO-Boost Before and After Reviews


EPO-Boost is sold on Amazon.com which means there are plenty of customer reviews to help us get a handle on how it’s working for people in the real world. The vast majority of reviews I’ve seen are positive:


Joe sums it up with:


“I don’t know if this stuff had placebo effect or if it was the real deal, however I did find myself able to push myself harder on the treadmill and the mountains within a short period of time. It didn’t seem long enough for it to have been me ‘just getting in better shape’, so I’m thinking this stuff was working. I was able to push harder and for longer periods of time whereas before I had peaked out under the same conditions. I will buy another bottle and see how far I can keep pushing up those mountains.”


and Chris adds:


“I have been consistently taking this product for a while. I make sure if I go to an event either cycling or an ironman, I make sure I take it consistently for 5 weeks straight before the event, and stop taking it right after. I really feel that I have more endurance and have the power every time I need it, and I’m able to push myself a little harder. IT WORKS!’


That said, there are some who swear it does absolutely nothing,


Like Kenneth, who’s even gotten the blood work done:


“I am afraid I have to side with those who found no difference having taken this supplement, and I can go one step further. EPO boosts red blood cell production, so athletes who take it have higher than normal red cell counts. I’ve bee taking EPO-Boost, so I expected to find a higher than normal red cell count, too. I just had a blood screen taken connected with a routine physical. There has been absolutely no change in my red cell count.”

I will note that the sheer number of Amazon reviews combined with the percentage that are 5-star reviews is a little fishy. It’s been said that some companies pay people to post favorable reviews of their products. This could be the case with EPO-Boost.

Is EPO-Boost Legal?


This question comes up a lot because of all the talk of cyclists using “blood doping” to achieve higher levels of performance. Using EPO-Boost is not considered blood doping, and it claims to be perfectly acceptable to all sports organizations.


Where to Buy EPO-Boost


You can find EPO-Boost online through their official website as well as Amazon.com. If you go with Amazon, you’ll pay $56.95 for a one month supply. If you go through the official website, you can buy a single bottle for $59.95, or you can save by signing up for their loyalty program. If you choose this route, you pay $44.95 each month, and a fresh bottle is shipped to you monthly. There’s also a 90-day loyalty program where you’ll pay $129.90 every 90 days.


These options are marked fairly clearly, so I wouldn’t call this an autoshipping scam. I’m certain a few people will get caught up unaware, but I wouldn’t blame that on the way the ordering page is presented. It seems pretty clear to me.


Our EPO-Boost Recommendation


On the surface, EPO-Boost looks good, but I’m not convinced. Athletes, the ones you’d think would be clamoring for this stuff, have not embraced it, and I’m afraid the reason is that it just doesn’t work. If you do decide to try it, make sure you know what you’re signing up for, and let me know how it works out for you.
