Testosterone Boosting Supplements, The FACTS Exposed!

Brought to you by:

Testosterone boosters are a very popular category of supplements these days. Are they worth using? Are they safe? Is there any solid research they increase muscle mass and strength? Learn the facts here on testosterone boosters. Increasing testosterone, foods that increase testosterone. Do these products increase libido? Male size? Can women use testosterone boosters?

However, this write up is not going to cover the hormone per se, but to discuss the various over-the-counter (OTC) products/formulas claiming to increase it. As there are literally hundreds, perhaps thousands, of products/formulas on the market at this point, all claiming to boost this important hormone, I am going to be talking in generalities about these products vs. a specific ingredient or formula.

A few ingredients in these formulas have been shown via dubious research at best to have a small impact on T, with the majority of them either having no research behind them or research that found they did nada for T levels.

To summarize this supplement category, the T booster supplements generally contain ingredients that:

• Have no data behind them or –
• The data they do have is of very poor quality/ and/or taken out of context/not applicable or –
• The doses used in the formula are far below what a study used to get the effect.

Obviously, the above can (and does!) apply to many products/formulas in the sports nutrition industry, but I find the T boosters worse then other categories in that respect.

OK, so lets give some T booster product the benefit of the doubt and say it does have some effects on T. That brings up a few important issues to consider.

Physiological Threshold Concepts

Heres a simple thought experiment: If you take a small amount of testosterone, say 25mg per week of T- propionate•, will your testosterone levels go up slightly for a short time? Yes. Will your muscle mass increase and or your strength increase? Nope. Anyone who has ever taken any T or knows the first thing about the topic knows theres a threshold dose at which one actually experiences changes in body composition and or strength.

The point being, its one thing to show formula/ingredient X has had some small impact on serum testosterone (and most have not), quite another to show that change actually had any effects on body composition or other end points people using such products generally care about, such as increases in strength and muscle mass.

As with any hormone, theres a physiological threshold that has to be met before it actually impacts muscle mass, strength, etc.

Anyone who has ever used T in the form of cypionate or enanthate (both long acting esters of T) knows that changes in body composition generally start at around 200mg per week at the least, with more being the norm.

The above assumes a person with normal testosterone levels vs. HRT/TRT therapy for those who are found to be medically low in T.

  1. My article on BrinkZone by the same name as this vid goes into further
    details on this topic for those interested, and I make a general offer to
    any company that wants to put their money where their mouth is by offering
    to do a very simple open label type study to test their product. As
    expected, no takers so far… everyone claims they have the “real” T
    booster supp, none willing to put money to claims to test it, With that be
    YOU? 

  2. Haven’t checked out your site yet but will try to sometime today. I’ll read
    your article about testing different labels and see exactly what you’re
    talking about. Having said that, I’ll go ahead and tell you that I will
    definitely put our products up against any other on the market. I assume
    your very knowledgable about testosterone, how it works, what raises it and
    what doesn’t – as am I. Understand I make NO claims that my product, or any
    product, works like Dianabol, Anadol 50, ect… 

  3. I am 35, and I feel foul to test boosters, they don’t do a dam thing, I
    half knew this befrore hand, so bigger fool me, I am going to do a 5-6 week
    cycle of testosterone enanthate for the first time, more of an experiment,
    going to do 250mg twice a week, It will cost me much less to do that cycle
    than the fing supplement route, I spent 400 on supps last month and got
    nothing apart from natural gains, to expensive for placebo IMO

  4. I really wish the FDA would start regulating supplements, then we could get
    rid of some of these products. 

  5. At 58 years old my max bench press increased by 25 lbs in 30 days by using
    Test Grow HP2 stacked with SixStar Test Booster. The reason for the stack
    is the Test Booster contains fenugreek and other supplements not found in
    the Test Grow HP2 product. Total cost for two 8 week cycles is approx.
    69.00. I visited several bodybuilding forums to find out what others
    experienced using them before I ran out and purchased them. I found it
    impossible to get a doctor to give me testosterone.

  6. hey Will, i saw your video and i do have to agree with you, i have done
    juice in school and it was wonderful, but know that im out of school and
    working in construction, its really really taking a toll on me. i decided
    to take a testosterone booster and all 3 that i have taken suck !! do you
    know any websites that i can get some juice or a name of a products simuler
    to some juice plizz will HELP !!

  7. Have they taken the challenge? Be interested to see if their product is
    what they say it is. Let me know. Thanks. 

  8. Disagree all you want but your personal n= 1 experience changes nothing.
    Placebo is a powerful thing my friend. Read the full article linked under
    the vid for more info. Not ONE SINGLE “T Booster” to date has shown any
    impact on what matters: strength, LBM, or performance. Not one. Good luck!

  9. Yes, many. Lots of free articles and reports on BrinkZone, as well as vids
    here, as well as my books, etc. cover what works, what does not, etc.

  10. I’m sorry, but I do not believe that no test booster known to man works,
    and that the sound of a sports car does. Test boosters may NOT work, I
    don’t know, but if they do not, I am not going to believe that listening to
    a sports car does.

    1. +WillBrink IF listening to a sports car does raise testosterone, as you say
      here, then it must be placebo effect, as there is no active chemical basis
      for it. THUS, the test supplements should have the same placebo (not real)
      effect. What I am not buying is that the sports car sound has a true
      effect, and the supplement has no effect. BTW- the one time I KNOW, beyond
      any shadow of doubt, that my free test went up, as I was having it tested
      regularly, was when I was on a program by Rheo H. Blair many years ago. He
      had me on large amounts of whole egg protein mixed with cream, large
      numbers of liver extract capsules, and large numbers of Soybro, which was a
      germ oil product containing wheat germ oil, rice bran oil, and soy oil.
      Also in his program were enormous amounts of B-Vitamins, with particularly
      large amounts of B-12 and B-6. As far as food goes, I was shooting many raw
      egg yolks (not the whites) per day, and eating fatty steaks. Sometimes had
      some lamb, and we also had beef heart ground up with regular beef which was
      eaten as patties. About the only carbs in the diet came from a bit of
      potato with breakfast, and from a little milk used at times in protein ice
      cream and protein shakes. The protein was usually consumed as a pudding,
      though, mixed with heavy cream. Blair also had me have a 6 hour glucose
      tolerance test and a TSH test before we even started. I made huge muscle
      gains, and experienced a reduction in body fat on that program. It was
      rather expensive, though, so I could not stay with it as long as I wanted.
      Point is, there was SOMETHING in that program which caused testosterone to
      go up, according to actual tests. It was a very high protein, very high
      fat, very low carb program, which worked for me.

    2. Ah, the “don’t confuse me with the facts” approach to it. I don’t believe
      you have the sci/med background to contest the article nor its conclusions,
      If you’re happy with some T booster you’re using, and or, don’t comprehend
      the very basic info I cover in that article, fine by me. Calling it a “lie”
      is exposure of ignorance of the basic issues covered. Good luck to you
      sir.

    3. I don’t use any test boosters! That is my part of my point, I don’t believe
      they work. . But, I also don’t listen to sports cars! BTW- I don’t know if
      you read all of my post, but there WAS something in Rheo Blair’s program
      which DID boost my testosterone, and hugely. Whether it was eggs, plant
      sterols, the cholesterol in all the fats I was consuming, the 300-400 grams
      of protein a day (along with digestants to improve the uptake). Anyway, I
      won’t confuse you with the facts about something in that program working
      for me. You seem to be a bit confused by orthomolecular biochemistry, cell
      wall penetration, cell nucleus manipulation, etc., from some of your
      previous work I have seen, so I won’t bother giving you my take on things.

  11. Will…Thank you very much for your contribution, it really help me out in
    understanding the fallacies of the sport nutrition industry

  12. Everything works and nothing don’t, i take so many T boosters and eat every
    product that says it boost testosterone,my level is 1600 so something is
    working, yeah i workout 7 days a week, muscles and penis obey me like a
    well trained dog.

    1. +khuzaima abbas It’s a drug vs an OTC “T booster” so a different issue.
      You’ll find that drug covered on a search on BrinkZone if interested. It’s
      a drug that will raise T yes.
