Many men lift to pick up the ladies.
Other men lady to pick up the lifts.
Whatever the hell that means.
But there comes a problem for those who devoutly lift and devoutly lady: There’s simply not enough time to lift and lady every day. You lift. You look good. You get out to show off your new rippling bod… But in the back of your mind is the reminder that you need to sleep to get up tomorrow to lift again.
You can’t lady tonight and then lift tomorrow morning.
Sure, you can every now and then, but let’s be real, dood. It’s just not realistic… Unless you got yourself a PWO sex-enhancer, baby! Check it out:
About Activate T Red
Fusion Diet Systems has been around the T-boosting block with its previous Active T formulas and seems to be moving onward with their latest: Active T Red. If you want T, go for the last two Active T boosters, because this formula is solely about exercise & sex (& energy & strength & smart-people stuff…). Formula notes:
- PWO Sex-Enhancer: Manly herbs, blood-pumping aminos, protein producing BCAAs… Activate T Red targets exercise & sex from various angles.
- 5-in-1 Formula: Each of the 5 blends in this formula have a specific “bio-active” task and there’s no overlap in the bio-actions at play here.
- Not a T-Booster: Don’t be fooled by the name: Activate T Red doesn’t “activate T” near as well as the other formulas in the Activate T “T-booster” series.

Activate T RED doesn’t activate T. It activates the WHOLE DAMN BODY.
Between these 5 blends, there is no overlap in their bio-actions. In order from top to bottom, the blends work by:
- Enhancing sex.
- Boosting N.O. production.
- Increasing protein synthesis.
- Supplying energy.
- Sharpening cognition.
That’s pretty damn impressive. Hell, if these blends work, you may not need any other supplements (except for perhaps an a more direct T-booster). Let’s see how these blends work:
Activate T™ RED Blend, 675 mg
There’s a very clever amount of synergy happening here with regards to sex; almost clever enough for us to overlook the lack of T-boosts in this synergy.
Starting with Cnidium Monnieri (snidium? kh-nidium?), the Activate T RED Blend immediately sets itself up as a libido booster. Because that’s essentially what Cnidium is: A libido-boosting, boner-pumping Traditional Chinese Medicine herb. Sparse research suggests that it may have testosterone-enhancing effect, although we’ll need more (human) research to verify this.
But it’s not the potential T-boosts that makes Cnidium cool. It’s the plant’s mixed benefits on sex, cognition, & liver health that give it a multi-angled edge on male sexual health. Tie those effects in with libido/performance-enhancers such as Maca, Tribulus, & Horny Goat Weed (and, more notably, the vasodilating L-Citrulline/L-Arginine of the next blend) and that’s when your hang-dang really starts hangin’.
Normally, we’re disappointed if the T-boosts don’t play out (and we are slightly disappointed here), but Activate T Red gives us plenty reason to also be excited.
Nitric Oxide Muscle Pump Matrix, 720 mg
A nice follow-up to the previous blend. The famous N.O. boosters L-Citrulline, L-Arginine, & L-Histidine all make an appearance here, which increase blood flow for the rest of the formula to take quicker effect on the body (and to fill up all your manly parts with manly… man-stuff).
On their own, these N.O. boosters are valuable for their sex & PWO benefits—but with the previous blend’s herb, these boosters hold even more valuable for not only their enhanced delivery, but their enhanced delivery of other blood pumping sex/performance-enhancers.
Anabolic (BCAA) Amino Blend, 290 mg
The three Branched Chained Amino Acids L-Valine, L-Isoleucine, & L-Leucine are essential amino acids with various benefits on muscle metabolism—especially when used in sports nutritional applications.
Research suggests that supplementing BCAAs before & after “damaging resistance exercise” reduces muscle damage & increases muscle recovery, most likely through improved protein synthesis pathways. This fits well with Activate T Red’s PWO angle on T-boosting.
Extreme Energy Igniter Complex, 800 mg
The highest dosed blend is also the most unnecessary in the formula.
Why is that?
Most likely because this has all of your feel-good stimulants. Point in case: The primary ingredient is Caffeine. As if we’re not getting enough of that already. It’s a cheap trick stacking up a bunch of caffeinated energy to create the illusion of a formula “working,” but Activate T Red deserves some credit here for supplying diverse sources of energy: D-Ribose, Theobromine, Synephrine (Citrus Aurantium)… Even the L-Taurine content edges in a bit of an anti-stress nootropic effect, which is always welcome.
Yet, suddenly Activate T Red’s audience is limited by the potentially adverse health effects associated with stimulants. We’re not sure if this was a good move on Fusion Diet’s part.
Neuro-Cerebral Focus Blend, 52 mg
As a nootropic “focus” blend, this is impressive.
Altogether this blend has your:
- Brain Energizers. L-Carnitine, CoQ10.
- Cognitive Enhancers. Vinpocetine, Huperzine-A.
- Memory Support. Choline Bitartrate.
Yet, we’re wondering (again) if this is all that necessary—especially with that small dosage. Granted, Vinpocetine & Huperzine-A require very tiny dosages and may add a cognitive advantage to exercise (Hup-A is fairly common to PWOs after all), but we feel this blend & the last one could have been slimmed and consolidated into a single “mind-muscle energizer” blend that fits more in line with the Activate T Red formula.
Which is essentially what you’re still getting here, but the benefit is somewhat limited by the number of (negligible) ingredients (i.e. caffeine & choline) crowding the limited space.
Activate T Red attempts & accomplishes a ton with this T-booster… for the most part.
The high-points of this T-booster:
- 5-in-1 Design
- Potent Sex-Enhancers
- Well-Rounded PWOs
- Quality Ingredients
- Adequate Dosages
But the low point of this T-booster:
- It doesn’t really boost
At least not to the likes of a DAA-fueled booster. Aside from the vitamins & minerals, which contains at least one of our Top 5 BIG LIST T-Boosters (Zinc – the manliest mineral on the market), there really are no qualified T-boosters in the formula.
We mentioned Cnidium and how cool it is as a natural libido/liver/cognitive-enhancer that might increase T levels, but that’s about as close as we get to boosting testosterone in the blends. N.O. boosting & BCAAs might indirectly aid T status, but not enough to warrant the title “T-booster.”
But you know what: That’s all okay here.
Because Activate T Red accomplishes so much man-enhancing outside of boosting testosterone from so many different angles, that it’d be wrong for us to call Activate T Red a “bad” product.
It would be morally wrong, dammit.
So if you’re alright buying a T-booster that doesn’t boost T, but enhances various aspects of male sex, performance, & cognition, then Activate T Red is your “T-booster.” Besides, it’s a much better choice than whatever else you’re thinking of buying on the Internet.
Activate T Red Benefits
Similar to the original Activate T formula, Activate T Red states relatively modest claims in its advertising. Yet, whereas the key benefits pointed out for Activate T (Strength, Stamina, Sex Drive) seemed on-point, they seem über modest here—which, by the way, they’re same benefits:
- Sex Drive
Considering the multi-purposity (we’re treating that like a word) of a few ingredients and the well-rounded nature of the formula, we’d be willing to state that Activate T Red may benefit strength, stamina, & sex drive from both physical & mental angles—a claim that very few supplements actually successfully deliver.
Who Takes It?
Lifting Ladies Men. That sounds like a circus sideshow (a very well might be). But we’re talking about men who lift weights and are enjoyed by the ladies. However, men who literally lift ladies could definitely benefit from this T-booster. That’s like a 2-for-1 act supported by a 5-in-1 formula. Wooow.
Any Side Effects?
The Activate T formulas currently have zero user reports, good or bad. Thus there have been no open complaints of side effects–which is a good thing. Yet, of all the Activate T formulas, Activate T Red may have the highest risk, mainly due to its stimulant content (i.e. Caffeine, Synephrine).
Our advice: Monitor your caffeine intake while supplementing Activate T Red. The fact that the caffeinated blend has upwards of 800 mg suggests that the caffeine levels are high here. Overdoing it may actually inhibit T status and then some.
Activate T Red Summary
- 5-in-1 Design. Risky, but Activate T does it molto bene *Italian-chef finger kiss*
- PWO Sex-Enhancer. The primary identity of this “T-booster.”
- Ingredients & Dosages. Not all of them are perfect, but overall looking good.
- Where’s the T? Activate T Red forgets the T in its BIG formula.
- Hyper Stimulants. Could be an unnecessary risk for some users.
- Prop Blends. Blends on blends on blends. But what are the dosages??
Pricing & Buying Info
- 1 Bottle (1 month): $54.99
- Available online and in retail stores
Final Word on Activate T Red
In conclusion: Activate T Red is a PWO, not a T-booster. The only thing linking Activate T to testosterone is its name, making it the PWO/sex-enhancing continuation of the Activate T series. Hopefully, if you came to Activate T Red expecting a worthwhile T-booster, you read this review first. Because that’s not at all what you’re getting. But as a man-enhancer that enhances numerous parts of man, Activate T Red definitely gets a B5 recommendation.
