Red Supplements is an online supplements company founded by Christopher Deoudes better known as the so called pick up artist called Good Looking Loser (GLL) and Victor Pride a bodybuilder and self proclaimed motivational speaker on male self-improvement. Their range of supplements is available only via the Red Supplements website and is aimed at men looking to improve manliness and increase success with women.
Red Supplements Red PCT is marketed as a testosterone booster that you can take as a standalone product or use when you are cycling off SARMS or steroids both of which are illegal for recreational use. The formula contains an untested Indian plant extract that some people believe is an aphrodisiac plus a pharmaceutical compound called ADT (Androst 3, 5-diene-7, 17-dione) which suppresses oestrogen. Although ADT is legal at present, the FDA warns against taking this compound because of the high risk of permanent side effects including liver damage. It may also see you banned for doping if you take part in sport.
Side effects may include vomiting, nausea, constipation, diarrhoea, decreased rate of bone maturation and growth, decreased sperm production, infertility, aggressive behaviour, adrenal insufficiency, kidney failure, liver dysfunction, increased risk of some types of hormonally related cancers such as testicular, prostate or breast cancer.
Red PCT is only available from the Red Supplements website. One bottle of 90 capsules (1 month’s supply) costs $49.99.
Just when we thought that Christopher Deoudes, Victor Pride and Red Supplements couldn’t get any worse, we discovered Red PCT which is a shockingly bad supplement that is likely to cause serious side effects.
All the health authorities, including the FDA warn against taking supplements that contain ADT. This anti-oestrogen drug is well known for causing side effects plus increases the risk of hormonally involved cancers such as prostate cancer, yet here it is, being dished up by Red Supplements without any real warnings to their customers. Even more shocking is that some people listen to Leuondes and Pride and believe them so may take this supplement on trust.
Don’t do it. Red PCT will not work as described and even if it did you could find that the long-lasting side effects outweigh any possible benefit you could get ever from this supplement.
Red Supplements Red PCT is a supplement that was originally paired with Red Osta, a Red supplements product that contained Ostarine, one of many SARMS drugs now banned by the authorities and the anti-doping authorities.
The term SARMS stands for ‘Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators’ and is a class of compounds that is similar to anabolic (muscle building) steroids but with reduced androgenic properties, meaning that they target specific hormones. SARMs were initially seen as a safer option to steroids and for medicinal use may offer benefits such as a treatment for muscle-wasting diseases and breast cancer.
However SARMs are no longer legal for bodybuilders; A high risk of nasty side effects plus concerns about doping in sport, and in addition the laws on supplement use that ban the inclusion of pharmaceutical drugs, has led to products such as Red Supplements Red Osta being withdrawn.
Red PCT is not a SARM. It is PCT supplement that is supposed to help aid recovery following a cycle of hormone drugs such as steroids or SARMs.
Take one capsule three times per day with or without food for 30 days.
However there are concerns about Red PCT. It contains a pharmaceutical drug called Arimistane which is made from a substance called Androst 3, 5-diene-7, 17-dione (ADT).
As yet ADT is not banned but it has come under scrutiny by the FDA because it seems to violate several health regulations. It is also considered risky for taking while competing in sport because it will test positive in urine tests.
ADT is an aromatase inhibitor which means that it prevents oestrogen biosynthesis. Suppressing oestrogen in this way can make the testosterone in the body more prevalent but it can lead to numerous irreversible effects.
Many so-called testosterone boosters containing ADT have been voluntarily withdrawn from the market. However supplements such as Red Supplements Red PCT are still on sale and for now, are perfectly legal.
As well as ADT, Red PCT contains an Indian plant extract called Chlorophytum borivilianum (safed musli). The roots have long been used as a sex tonic and it may be an aphrodisiac. It is considered an Adaptogen meaning that a substance that has a general beneficial effect upon mood and well-being.
The final ingredient is N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) derived from the amino acid Cysteine and may help build immunity by preventing oxidative damage to cells.
Overall Red Supplements Red PCT does not look very safe for users. Although NAC is a good ingredient, Chlorophytum borivilianum is under researched and ADT will probably be banned for safety reasons in the near future.
Red Supplements was founded by internet marketeers Christopher Deoudes and Victor Pride both so-called authorities on male issues such as how to pick up women. Deoudes calls himself the Good Looking Loser and is ‘pick up artist’ meaning that he advises impressionable young men how to get to have sex by the use some pretty dubious ‘tricks’ and ‘techniques’. He has been described as a borderline rapist and a creep. Victor Pride makes a career out of criticising women and has written lifestyle guides for men which thankfully do not seem very popular.
Red Supplements was founded to monetise the pair’s dodgy advice with products. Other supplements in the range include Red Monkey – a nootropic to ease social anxiety and Red Supplements Red a fat burner.
According to the advertising, Red PCT will provide the following benefits:
There is no real evidence that this is true.
The product information advises that, ‘RED-PCT can be used as a standalone testosterone booster even if you don’t use OSTA-RED’. As Osta Red was withdrawn months ago, the Red Supplements website is not obviously updated on a regular basis.
The role of the ADT is explained:
The main driver of RED PCT is the potent aromatase inhibitor in the ingredient profile Arimistane (Androst 3, 5-diene-7, 17-dione). Arimistane works by creating a more favourable ratio of testosterone to oestrogen in the body.
It may work to some extent but as the advice from the FDA and health authorities is to avoid supplements containing ADT (1,4,6-Androstatriene-3,17-dione) because it can lead to some serious side effects including an increased risk of liver and heart damage and some forms of cancer we don’t advise you to try it. Yes, it may increase the amount of available testosterone in your body but messing about with your hormones with prescription drugs is not a safe or sensible option.
Some people have to take ADT because of medical conditions such as breast cancer or prostate cancer and in fact the testosterone-boosting effects do not feel very noticeable. Take this supplement and you are just setting yourself up for future health risks.
Some physicians recommend taking a liver function test following using ADT.
In keeping with the usual style of Red Supplements, there are no warnings provided to tell customers that this is a potentially dangerous supplement.
Serving size is equal to one capsule. The ingredient quantities are unknown because this information is masked by the use of a proprietary blend.
Red PCT Blend (665 mg):
Not much is known about the effects of Chlorophytum borivilianum because it has not been studied on humans. N Acetyl Cysteine is likely to be safe but may cause side effects such as:
The Red Supplements product information provides the following warning; not suitable for individuals under 21. Avoid if pregnant or breast feeding. Do not take this product if you have been diagnosed with high cholesterol, prostate cancer, testicular cancer or breast cancer. Consult your physician before use.

There are no independent customer reviews for Red PCT. The only customer feedback we can find is placed on the Red Supplements website. Unsurprisingly all are extremely positive.
I can feel the difference. But this isn’t a stark contrast like steroids. This is a long-term thing, and if you want to FEEL results all day you will have to take 3x pills a day. Muscle mass and libido have increased, along with aggression. I just wish it could be taken for longer periods of time (it’s advised to quit after a month or two and cycle off).
Wow. Using as a stand alone for less than a week. My muscles are hard and full, and libido has doubled. I hope this product remains available for years to come.
There is no money-back guarantee on offer.
