Below we take an in-depth look at Baseline Nutritionals Men’s Formula, to see whether this natural mix delivers on its many bold promises.
The Baseline Nutritionals Men’s Formula is a testosterone-boosting supplement that is mainly marketed as a cure for sexual performance issues and a general energy booster for older men. The product comes in liquid form and is administered by a dropper that comes with the bottle, with the manufacturer advising users to stick to 2 drops per day for normal days, and ramping that up to 10 drops for “special occasions”.
The Men’s Formula is manufactured by Baseline Nutritionals, a US-based producer of various supplements. The company is headed by a strange and opinionated figure called John Barron, who has courted controversy throughout his career for making brazen statements to drive sales of his supplements. Amongst Barron’s most bizarre claims is his notion that cancer is driven by the voltage of cells, an idea that has been quickly dismissed by experts in the field. Barron’s penchant for dishonesty appears to have spread to his company’s website, which readily seems to fake customer reviews and use irrelevant academic sources on its product pages.
Some customers may experience side effects as a result of using this product. American ginseng has sometimes been known to cause insomnia, headaches, feelings of nervousness, itching, diarrhoea, changes in blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, rashes, liver damage and others.
Other ingredients could cause mild side effects, including stomach issues and sweating (which have been linked with nettles), insomnia (a problem associated with Tribulus terrestris), and stomach issues, constipation and headaches. Worryingly for a product of this nature, Tribulus terrestris is also thought to worsen prostate issues in some cases.
The Men’s Formula costs the same no matter which outlet you choose (the Baseline Nutritionals website, Amazon or Nutristamina). A single bottle containing 30 servings costs $34.95 plus $6.95 in shipping (although domestic shipping is free from the official website on orders totalling $75 or more). International customers looking to buy from the official Baseline Nutritionals website can arrange to have their purchase shipped to seemingly any destination, with prices calculated on the basis of weight and destination. Check the shipping chart on the website to calculate the cost for your purchase, which shouldn’t exceed $10 (at least based on our math).
One of the main issues we have with this product is the poor reputation of the manufacturer’s founder and CEO, a situation which does not give us confidence that the product will be made professionally. Check online to read up on the various statements and claims that John Barron has made over the years if you like, but they can all be summarised as anti-scientific nonsense that was often said simply to sell his supplements.
The website carries on the dishonest tradition of Barron by making false claims about the product, creating fake customer reviews praising it, and citing academic journals that bear no resemblance to the product that’s being sold (articles that prove a certain ingredient helps premenopausal women do not prove they are useful for a men’s product!)
Even if the company were reputable, we wouldn’t look to recommend this product in particular. Despite being clearly marketed as a testosterone booster, the Men’s Formula contains very little that can boost testosterone levels. At best, it could work as a sexual performance enhancer with a good money-back guarantee, albeit a rather pricey one. When there are actual testosterone boosters out there that work as promised, this is just not good enough.
We do not recommend the Baseline Nutritionals Men’s Formula to our readers.
The Men’s Formula produced by Baseline Nutritionals is a testosterone supplement that promises to boost customers’ sex drives, energy levels and stamina for the gym. Containing a mix of natural ingredients administered in the form of a liquid dropper, this pricey product seems to be marketed mainly at older men, although younger customers are still advised that they can find the product’s effects useful if testosterone levels are low.
As the name suggests, the men’s formula is manufactured and sold by Baseline Nutritionals, a US-based company headed by the relatively (in)famous Jon Barron. Barron has courted interest and controversy for much of his public career by making bold statements on a number of different subjects. His most bizarre claims include the assertion that cancer can be prevented by raising the voltage of cancer cells that humans retain 10–20 pounds of toxic fecal matter in their bodies unless dealt with, and that vaccines cause children to be poisoned with mercury. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the solution for many of the problems that Barron identifies is the purchase of one or more of his supplements, causing us to believe that he may not be the most honest health “expert” out there.
Put 2–3 droppers of Men’s Formula in 2 ounces of juice as needed – or up to 10 droppers at once for special occasions. Shake well before using.
The Men’s Formula claims to boost testosterone levels in the body and provide better adrenal support, which is then said to increase energy, boost the sex drive and increase stamina. The section on the website detailing the problems men suffer when they enter their 30s also implies that the product can reverse these effects, meaning that the product also claims to help with circulatory problems, weight issues and a lack of “zest for life”. To quote the official website, the Men’s Formula specifically:
The Men’s Formula is packed with ingredients that are not backed up by scientific evidence, which is not to say that they don’t all work. The problem is that just one has actually been linked with raising testosterone (nettles), and the dosage included in the mix is likely too low to be truly effective.
The clearest effect that we can predict taking place as a result of using this product is a boost in sexual performance. The vast majority of the ingredients included in the mix are intended to act as aphrodisiacs, sexual performance boosters and cures for erectile dysfunction. The inclusion of American ginseng root could also provide a nice all-round boost to the immune system and the body’s general health. The remaining claims made about the Men’s Formula by Baseline Nutritionals are all unfortunately duds.
The ingredients used in the Baseline Nutritionals Men’s Formula are listed below. Readers should note that the ingredient quantities used in the product are not listed, which can make it hard to estimate how effective the product would be for the average user.

Some of the ingredients contained within the men’s formula may cause side effects. American ginseng has sometimes been known to cause insomnia, headaches, feelings of nervousness, itching, diarrhoea, changes in blood pressure, rapid heartbeat and others. In rare cases, it has also caused rashes, liver damage and severe allergic reactions.
Nettles may cause mild side effects when taken orally, including stomach issues and excess sweating. Saw palmetto sometimes causes mild dizziness, headaches, nausea, diarrhoea, constipation and vomiting. The main side effect of using Tribulus terrestris is insomnia although worrying research has identified evidence linking it with prostate issues for men.
Please consult your healthcare practitioner before using any nutritional supplement, especially if you are taking medications on a regular basis, anticipate surgery, or are otherwise under medical supervision. Product not intended for use by children under 18 or women who are pregnant or lactating. Do not use if safety seal is broken or missing.
Although there are many customer reviews to be found on the official website, it should be obvious to most readers that they have been faked or written by Baseline Nutritionals staff. The main indicator proving this in our eyes is that each “customer reviewer” has taken the time to add the trademark sign (™) to each mention of the product name, and has also made the odd decision to post the same review to multiple product pages on the website. These same reviews also appear on the Amazon page. For this reason, we advise all readers to take the reviews below with a massive pinch of salt!
I have been using this product personally for over five years now as well as recommending it to people I train. As a Licensed Personal Trainer I understand the importance of raising all six hormones in your body equally and doing it naturally. Getting shots of testosterone or doing steroids only makes the problem worse, and usually raises only one hormone, testosterone. By doing this naturally we raise all six, in correct balance without creating any additional problems. When we’re 18 our testosterone is 1200 ng/dL, by the time we’re 21 it’s around 900 and at 40 it’s usually around 400 and decreases 1% or more as we age. The last time I had my testosterone checked (2 years ago) it was 895 and I was 53 at that time. This is an excellent product and I intend to continue with it as well as my exercise routine and eating properly. Thanks Baseline Nutritionals, Bob Winthrop.
Your Men’s Formula is my secret weapon in the gym. I’m 48 years old and none of my workout buddies can figure out how I build muscle so much faster than they do. I know I should tell them about your formula so they can buy it too, but I don’t want to give up my edge. Sorry about that.
