Testrovax is a supplement aimed at men. It comes from Novex Biotech a company based in Salt Lake City and is on sale from a range of stockists including GNC and Amazon.
Testrovax is a supplement that is supposed to almost double your testosterone levels in just 12 days. However there is no evidence that it will work this way and side effects could be very unpredictable. Testrovax comes from Novex Biotech a Utah-based supplements company who have past form in claiming other people’s scientific results as their own. One of the ingredients in Testrovax called (D)-Asparaginic Acid has undergone testing but although this is contained in the formula, this does not prove that Testrovax will work as the advertising describes.
Side effects are likely and may be unpredictable. The product warns you that this supplement may increase aggression, overconfidence, and sexual arousal. It also warns of sleeplessness, tremors, dizziness, nervousness, headache and heart palpitations. Other side effects may include, itching, facial flushing, vomiting, nausea, stomach upset, diarrhoea, low potassium levels, weakness or fatigue.
Testrovax is expensive. If you buy direct from the Novex Biotech website, it costs $69.99 for 90 capsules (30 servings or 1 month’s supply). It is on sale from GNC for $62.99 for 90 capsules. You can buy Testrovax via Amazon USA for $47.95 making it the best deal.
We are not very impressed with Testrovax. The product makes some wild unsubstantiated claims in the advertising about how this supplement will increase your testosterone levels by 43% but it does not back up the claims with any evidence. In the course of our research we did find out that one of the ingredients (D)-Asparaginic Acid does have a strong but temporary effect on T levels but this should have been explained more fully to customers. The fact that it hasn’t led us to believe that ingredient quantities do not conform to this testing.
In addition we are very concerned about the other ingredients. With 13 herbal components many totally unrelated to testosterone production, side effects are likely to be a real problem. The product information warns us about some of these but in our opinion, they are only scratching the surface. We would not advise anyone to take this supplement. It is unproven, expensive and potentially dangerous so why on earth would you bother?
Testrovax is a testosterone-boosting supplement. It is not an anabolic steroid – a synthetic testosterone often taken illegally to boost athletic performance and build muscle. Instead it contains ingredients that the makers say will help your body manufacture more of its own testosterone naturally and draw on its natural testosterone reserves.
According to the advertising, a clinical trial has shown that Testrovax will cause a whopping 42% increase in testosterone levels after just 12 days of use. It seems a lot. If this supplement really does work in this way, it could have real implications for athletic performance. The product information does not say whether taking Testrovax is allowed in sport or whether using it will get you disqualified.
So what do the Testrovax capsules contain? Aside from B vitamins it contains a proprietary blend called Testothrione in a hefty serving of 2.70g per serving which comprises of herbal ingredients in unknown quantities. The key ingredient is (D)-Asparaginic Acid. This amino acid is a form of aspartic acid which is often used as a temporary testosterone booster for either athletes or infertile men. Although it requires further clinical testing it looks promising.
Other ingredients include grape extract, fenugreek and revesterol all known for health benefits. It contains Damiana leaf – often an ingredient in legal highs, Withania Somnifera, liquorice root and red clover powder.
Take 3 tablets daily with breakfast.
There are 13 different ingredients in total so effects of this mix of herbal ingredients look like they may be unpredictable. According to a clinical test quoted in the advertising, this blend caused on average an increase of 42% of testosterone levels in the volunteer group after 12 days of use. We will look into this clinical test and the ingredients later in the review.
Novex Biotech is a supplements company based in Salt Lake City, Utah – an area of the USA known as the centre of supplements. We have covered Novex Biotech supplements before including Oxydrene Elite, a supplement that is supposed to increase VO2. Worryingly the claims for Oxydrene Elite were based on a probably exaggerated clinical trial carried out by another company.
According to the advertising, Testrovax is a “clinically tested functional testosterone-boosting compound”.
Healthy testosterone is described as causing:
Most of the advertising for Testrovax revolves around the clinical test.
A group of 43 men aged 27–37 years were divided into two groups: 1) the active Testosterone Booster compound group and 2) an indistinguishable placebo group. Results showed that serum testosterone levels in the active group were significantly increased compared to those of the placebo group over the course of the study, wherein the active Testosterone Booster compound led to a 42% increase in testosterone after 12 days of use. Interestingly, 3 days after the suspension of treatment, testosterone was still increased 1.22 fold compared to baseline in the treatment group, showing a lasting effect.
This sounds impressive but when looked into this and could find no record anywhere of this precise test. However we found a very small test for (D)-Asparaginic Acid that was favourable and took place over 12 days. This does not prove that Testrovax which contains a blend of ingredients in unknown quantities will work in the way described.
It will not work as described but it may do something. (D)-Asparaginic Acid may help increase testosterone temporarily but the evidence for Testrovax looks flimsy. We are not provided with any of the ingredient details so there is no way of knowing whether this one ingredient conforms to the single clinical trial.
There is no real evidence that the other ingredients will increase testosterone at all. Some increase blood flow so are occasionally taken for erectile dysfunction but this is not the same as enhanced testosterone.
The bottom line is that this supplement will not increase your testosterone levels by 43% after just 12 days.
The ingredients contained in Testothrione (Novex Biotech’s own brand) are under a proprietary blend so we cannot provide a full ingredients breakdown and only the vitamin content is provided.
Serving size is equal to 3 capsules.

There are a few customer reviews posted on the GNC product page and these are all positive.
Great product that helps your body boost your testosterone level as you age. I definitely recommend it! It gives you a great boost to your workout and has helped me a lot!
Solid product. Saw some signs of increased testosterone and gains at the gym.
There are only a couple of reviews posted on Amazon USA.
This stuff worked for me. Definitely noticed in my workouts. Not a huge difference but definitely felt better and stronger. Worked great for the libido but also made me a lot more aggro and kicked my anxiety up a bit. But to be clear I have anxiety anyways. I’m not gonna take it again because I don’t like feeling aggro. If you don’t mind that I would definitely recommend this product, it does what it says it does.
A little energy boost, no considerable gain in any other regards.
