Vintage Muscle is a supplement company that sells bodybuilding products. Their products include ingredients not commonly seen in OTC supplements, like steroids and prohormones.

In this article we’ll review some of Vintage Muscle's formulations to determine if they’re safe and effective, as well as offer some potential alternatives. First we’ll make some comments about the business as a whole and why we don’t view them as a reputable company.

No Public Team

We always consider it a red flag when a supplement company has no public team listed on their website. As we detailed in our Relief Factor reviews page, which highlights another company selling questionable supplements with no public team, you should be wary of any company selling proprietary products with no scientists on their team.

Some research determines that the founder of Vintage Muscle is a man by the name of Jared Van Yperen. He has a personal website and wants to “mentor entrepreneurs”. There is no mention of any scientific credentials, or explanation of why he’s qualified to formulate muscle building supplements using arguably “grey area” drugs.

No Published Test Results

The only way you can know what you’re getting when you buy supplements online is if the company publishes (ideally third-party) test results proving that their products are accurately labeled and have no contaminants. Vintage Muscle does not do this.

The need for independent testing is even greater for muscle building products than for most supplement categories, because this type of product is so frequently contaminated with harmful or illegal drugs. 

The FDA publishes reports on tainted bodybuilding products, and those listed probably make up a very small percentage of those available for sale, because the FDA “cannot test all products on the market” as they say themselves.

Alpha Test Stack Review

Vintage Muscle’s Alpha Test Stack is a product claiming to help you build “hard, lean muscle and strength” and clearly suggesting by the title that it will increase your testosterone levels. This product contains a capsule supplement with a botanical blend and a liquid supplement with a steroid.

As we discussed at length in our review of hormonal imbalance quizzes, it makes no sense to try to alter your hormones without test results which prove they need to be altered.

We recommend getting your testosterone levels checked at a doctor if you think you have low T, rather than taking supplements online based on symptoms.

One of the first active ingredients in the capsule product is tribulus. This plant is a proven libido enhancer, but doesn’t have any effect on testosterone. A medical study found that tribulus supplementation (at dosages factors higher than the 750 mg included in Alpha Test Stack) had no impact on testosterone levels. Another study found the exact same thing.

Alpha Test Stack capsules also contain insignificant amounts of exotic herbs: 50 mg horny goat weed, 50 mg tongkat ali, 50 mg saw palmetto, 50 mg hawthorne and 50 mg cissus quadrangularis extract. 

You’d think the company would be smart enough to at least change the dosages if they’re just randomly adding ingredients to fill up the Supplement Facts label, but instead they just used exactly 50 mg of all five final ingredients.

We have come across zero evidence in medical papers that 50 mg of any of these ingredients is effective in increasing testosterone, nor does Vintage Muscle publish any, so we can assume all of these ingredients are underdosed and ineffective.

The liquid supplement included in Alpha Test Stack is an anabolic steroid called epiandrosterone. It’s questionable if this ingredient is even legal, because the DEA makes clear that anabolic steroids are illegal. However this may be classified as a prohormone.

Regardless, this is an incredibly unsafe ingredient to be taking in our opinion, as there are not many safety or toxicology studies on it. It’s likely to have significant side effects and we haven’t seen any medical studies proving 100 mg of epiandrosterone increases testosterone levels (even though it likely would due to its biochemical nature).

Muscle Support Stack Review

This product is even riskier and more unsafe in our opinion than the one reviewed above.

The main liquid supplement contains 50 mg of a compound called 3b-hydroxy-androsta-4 6-diene-17-one. It appears to be another prohormone but we can’t find any medical studies or even overviews on this compound at all: nothing about its efficacy, nothing about its safety and of course Vintage Muscle doesn’t publish anything explaining how this ingredient is safe.

If you’re considering purchasing this product you have to seriously ask yourself why you’re willing to take the risk of buying steroid analogues from some unlicensed “entrepreneur” from Utah with no medical background. It’s somewhat absurd to us that this company has any customers at all.

Better Alternatives

Consumers who are worried about their hormone levels should get hormone panels done by a licensed doctor. To solve a problem you need data, and targeted supplementation based on test results is a much more effective and logical approach than randomly taking prohormones.

We strongly recommend working with a doctor for hormone replacement therapies, as these can have significant, lifelong side effects like fertility risks for men in the case of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT).

Another benefit of getting hormone replacement therapy from a licensed doctor is that the costs can often be covered or subsidized by insurance, while buying OTC supplements is almost always out of pocket.

Conclusion

We can’t recommend enough that you avoid Vintage Muscle. A decent number of the supplements we review are likely ineffective or underdosed, but rarely do we feel they pose as significant health risks as Vintage Muscle products do.

Hormone levels can be naturally improved through lifestyle changes, and when that’s not enough there are proven medical interventions like TRT which are much safer and carry less risks of dramatic side effects like liver failure in our opinion than buying questionable grey area supplements from unlicensed “entrepreneurs”. 

Not only does Vintage Muscle publish zero proof that their products work, but we believe there’s a significant chance they’re unsafe, so we recommend that consumers look to better alternatives.
