Force Factor Test X 180 is aimed at men wishing to boost a flagging libido and get generally fitter. It is not just aimed at bodybuilders looking to build muscle but ordinary men wanting to perform at their best.
Force Factor Test X 180 is a testosterone booster that promises great results but it is unlikely to work as described. Some of the ingredient quantities such as Testofen and Vitamin D seem low and there is also a strong risk of side effects. Customer feedback is not very positive overall and there is a suspicion that some of the positive customer reviews may be fake. In addition many customers have been caught out by a free trial offer and have been signed up to auto-ship without realising.
Despite the lack of warnings, there is a strong risk of side effects. Reported side effects include mood swings and irritability, headaches, loss of energy, stomach cramps, gas, anger and insomnia. Other side effects may include dizziness, skin rashes, high or low blood pressure, hormonal side effects, anxiety muscle spasms, drowsiness, pounding heart beat, worsening of prostate conditions such as prostate cancer or BPH.
Force Factor Test X 180 is expensive, especially if you buy from the official website. Some customers signed up for a free trial offer and it cost them more than they bargained for. This is not currently running on this supplement but it does apply to other Force Factor supplements.
It works like this: You sign up to a 18-day trial, sending the shipping costs of $4.99. If you fail to cancel within 18 days, the monthly VIP membership kicks in and you are charged $69.99 a month until you manage to cancel.
You can still buy Test XS 180 from the Force Factor website as a one off customer. One bottle of 60 capsules costs $69.99 plus shipping charges.
A safer and cheaper option is to buy via Amazon USA.
One bottle of 60 capsules of Force Factor Test X 180 costs $41.21.
You can also buy Force Factor Test X 180 from Amazon UK. One bottle costs £49.95 so is much more expensive.
We are not impressed with Force Factor Test X 180. Although this supplement promises the customer great results, it will not work as described. If you do notice any positive effects, you will be lucky and many customers are extremely dissatisfied with this supplement. Side effects are also highly possible.
In addition there are issues with the Force Factor sales policy if you buy from the official website. The free trial offer has caught numerous customers out and instead of paying only $4.99 they have been debited for $69.99 a month. This trial has since been discontinued for this particular product but is still current on other Force Factor supplements.
We don’t believe that Force Factor Test X 180 will make you feel like a superhero in the bedroom or gym and if you buy this supplement expecting these results, you will be disappointed.
Force Factor Test X 180 is a supplement designed to boost testosterone levels. This is a problem for men especially as they age and testosterone levels deplete over the years. Low testosterone can cause a range of issues including loss of energy, lack of interest in sex and declining physical abilities. Although all these are often associated with the aging process, increasing testosterone may be a way to get your old mojo back.
The supplement contains a range of herbal ingredients which come under a proprietary blend. This means we cannot see exactly how much of each ingredient is contained in the supplement. However the names of the ingredients are provided and include a branded supplement called Testofen derived from the spice Fenugreek. It also contains Siberian ginseng and Panax ginseng – two extracts that work as an adaptogen which means they cause general feelings of wellness and improved mood. It contains cordyceps – a mushroom extract often taken as a testosterone-boosting ingredient.
The final ingredient in the proprietary blend is Tribulus Terrestis – again an ingredient which often shows up in testosterone boosting formulas and it does come with some scientific evidence that it may be effective.
Force Factor Test X 180 also contains vitamin D – which recent health advice is that we should all be taking because it is so important for healthy bones and helping build immunity to illness and disease. It contains vitamin B6 a vitamin which is extremely important for numerous metabolic functions.
On workout days, take 1 capsule with breakfast and 1 capsule 30 minutes before working out. On non-workout days: Take 1 capsule with breakfast and 1 capsule with lunch.
The supplement is sold via numerous retailers including the Vitamin Shoppe, GNC and Amazon USA. It is also on sale from the Force Factor website. Some customers who have bought via the official website have complained about a so-called free trial offer which has turned out to be expensive. When you sign up for the free trial you have only 18 days to cancel the product after you have bought it.
If you fail to do this, you will be billed automatically and fresh supplies sent to your address every month.
Force Factor has recently discontinued this option for Test X 180. However it is still available for some of the other Force Factor supplements including Force Factor Test X180 Ignite, Test X 180 Alpha and Test X180 Tempest.
We covered Force Factor Ramp Up in a previous review:
The product information explains why men this need this supplement.
As men age, their natural production of testosterone begins to decline. Some just accept this and cope with less energy, decreased muscle mass, and a weaker sex drive. But why settle? With Test X180, you can build bigger muscles, increase your libido, and look and feel invincible.
According to the advertising there are three key features to this supplement:
The product information explains who this supplement is for:
Testosterone boosters aren’t just for pro-bodybuilders; they are the answer for every guy who wants to challenge his declining testosterone and perform at the highest level.
Force Factor Test X 180 may work to a degree but results may not be as life changing as the advertising suggests.
One of the key ingredients is Testofen, a branded supplement that contains Trigonella foenum-graecum seed (fenugreek seeds).
According to clinical research, ”Testofen showed a statistically significant increase in the sexual function, performance and satisfaction of the active group”. However this does not necessarily mean that this supplement will work the same as in the test conditions.
The active dose in the test was 600 mg of Testofen so the amounts are much lower in this supplement. In addition the test did not prove that this ingredient would really work as effectively as the advertising claims. A significant increase sounds good but does it really mean that you will turn into a superhero in the gym and the bedroom? We think this is unlikely.
Each capsule is equal to one serving.
Growth Enhancement Matrix (400 mg)
Some customers have mentioned side effects. These include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. This supplement is not aimed at women but women should not take it if pregnant, breast-feeding or if they are suffering from a hormonally related medical condition. Avoid this supplement if you are taking prescription medication or if you have an underlying medical condition. Force Factor has not provided any health information which is a serious omission.
There are nearly 700 reviews left on the Amazon site alone. Many of these are positive but customers have questioned their authenticity. As this reviewer reported,
What a pathetic and obvious scam these reviews are. Page after page of totally identical 5-star reviews. I counted ten of these identical reviews on the first 16 of the 41 pages of reviews. I got tired at that point.
We looked into this and did find numerous repeated positive reviews as claimed. However, some of the positive reviews look genuine.
I am in my mid 50s and this stuff gives me added stamina at work when I am starting to wear down from work.
There are also loads of negative comments.
I did NOT notice any difference therefore it was a waste of money in my eyes! 🙁
My partner and I have been taking this product for over 3 weeks and have noticed ABSOLUTELY NO DIFFERENCE with our stamina and sex drive. Energy levels are the same. To us, this is just a waste of money.
Don’t waste your money on this, since there are similar products that actually work. Also beware: I ordered the 30-day trial and the company decided to bill me for a $80 dollar bottle without my authority!
Warning: the $5 ‘sample’ deal, which SOUNDS like a good way to try it, comes with ‘automatic shipments’ and billing your credit card without warning. (Maybe it was in that fine print somewhere but I missed it.) Very hard to get them to discontinue these shipments. Better to order on Amazon and decide yourself whether you want more. Their website says if you don’t like it you can call for an RMA number, ship back unused portion and get refunds (if you’re buying directly from them). They will resist this on the phone though.
Customer representatives from Force Factor have responded courteously to many of the complaints. However they have not mentioned a refund to any disgruntled customers.
Force Factor Test X 180 does not come with a money-back guarantee.
Force Factor Test X 180 is available from a wide range of outlets including GNC, Lucky Vitamin, Amazon USA and the Force Factor website. You can also buy Force Factor Test X 180 from Amazon UK.
