Below, we take an in-depth look at Testro-X, to see whether this natural herbal remedy actually delivers where so many others fail.
Truth Nutra Testro-X is an all-natural Testosterone booster for men, although women can apparently use the supplement too to help with hormone balance. It aims to do many other things too, including improve muscle growth and sex drive, give you better sleep, as well as more energy during the day.
It uses a combination of herbs, amino acids, and minerals, alongside black pepper extract (Bioperine) to increase the bioavailability of the other ingredients.
Testro-X is manufactured by Truth Nutra, a US company, and started by Christopher Walker who studied neuroscience. His diagnosis of a tumour on his pituitary gland led him to find a natural hormone solution to cure himself, which eventually led to him to start this supplement company.
Possible side effects of consuming Forskolin include headaches, a decrease in blood pressure, dizziness, blurred vision, nausea, fatigue, lack of concentration, increased heart rate, heart palpitations, heartburn, indigestion, and stomach cramps. Forskolin may also interact with prescribed medications, especially blood thinners and blood pressure medications.
Glycine generally does not cause side effects, but it can cause some gastrointestinal side effects including soft stools, nausea, vomiting, and stomach upset.
Ashwagandha supplementation might cause stomach upset, diarrhoea, and vomiting, especially when taken in large doses.
Truth Nutra Testro-X is quite expensive. One bottle costs $54.95 which will last 30 days taken at the maximum dose.
It is also available on a ‘subscribe and save’ option with which you get a 15% discount making it $46.71 and you can choose to receive your next bottle every 30, 60, or 90 days.
Testosterone boosters are some of the least reliable groups of supplements on the Internet. Lots of them don’t work, and those that do are normally so prone to causing side effects and long-term issues that we cannot seriously recommend them.
Testro-X is trying to achieve a lot of things at once, including increasing testosterone production and muscle growth, aiding sleep, and providing an energy boost.
Ashwagandha has a lot of uses, but there isn’t enough information to judge whether it is effective. It is also here in a reasonably small dose of 400mg per day. The lowest effective dose has been found to be 300-500mg with an optimal dosage of 6,000mg.
L-Theanine has only been deemed safe for short-term use and it is not known if longer periods of use would be safe, so this supplement shouldn’t be taken long-term until more is known about it.
Another issue is that Testro-X contains boron, which is supposed to help increase your testosterone levels, but many studies have found that it may actually increase estrogen production. Many studies have failed to notice any benefits of boron. Some supplement manufacturers claim that boron helps improve testosterone levels because it improves vitamin D and magnesium levels in the body. However, not enough scientific evidence is there to support the claim.
There is nothing in this supplement that could give you an energy boost. L-Theanine is usually used alongside caffeine to prevent the side effects such as jitters, but there is no caffeine in this product.
It is also pretty expensive for one month’s supply and it may not be worth the money.
Overall, we do not recommend Testro-X to our readers.
Truth Nutra Testro-X is a supplement that aims to help with raising your testosterone levels and consequently increasing muscle gain and fat loss and increasing sex drive. With your T levels going up, it is natural to feel charged up and have more energy to handle high-intensity workout sessions.
Testro-X is stimulant-free and designed to be taken at night before bed. It includes Ashwagandha which has been found to reduce cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone that is affected by stress, and that in turn impacts the body in numerous ways. High cortisol levels can disrupt sleep patterns, increase appetite, decrease libido, and negatively affect immune response and wound healing, amongst many other effects. However, the lowest effective dose is 300-500mg with the optimal dose being 6,000mg a day. The amount of Ashwagandha in this product is 400mg so it may not have the desired effect here.
L-Theanine is an amino acid that reaches the brain following oral ingestion. It is known to be a relaxing agent without sedation and it can also reduce the perception of stress and slightly improve attention. It is not a great sleep aid, although it may very slightly help. L-Theanine’s effects on mood do not appear to occur when used by people who are anxious.
For daily use, you should take 1 serving (3 capsules) per day, preferably at night since the KSM-66 Ashwagandha helps support better sleep and can also reduce stress. To keep the effectiveness of the herbs in it, we recommend taking it during the weekdays and not taking it on the weekends.
Magnesium is a good addition to this supplement. Insomnia is a common symptom of magnesium deficiency as well as restless sleep and waking frequently during the night. Magnesium also increases the levels of GABA in the body which encourages relaxation, and it can also help with improving mood. Testro-X has 150mg of magnesium in 3 capsules which is a relatively good dose to take each day. Supplementing with magnesium citrate (as is used here) is the best form to use as it is more readily absorbed.
There are some good ingredients in Testro-X, but many of the levels are too low and not backed up by enough scientific research to say that they can increase testosterone levels.
Truth Nutra offers a ‘Subscribe and Save’ option that you can sign up to a when you buy the product. This reduces the cost by 15%. Subscribe and save is an auto-ship agreement that sends you fresh supplies every month or so, and bills your credit card automatically. We advise caution as these types of agreement can be hard to cancel.
However, Truth Nutra do at least make it clear that it is easy to pause or cancel your subscription at any time.
Truth Nutra Testro-X claims to increase testosterone production naturally as well as increasing muscle growth and sex drive, promoting higher quality sleep and recovery, providing more energy during the day and increasing masculinity and assertiveness.
We think the supplement is unlikely to work as described. Many of the dosages of the ingredients are too low, and there is not enough evidence to back up the claims that these ingredients will help with increasing testosterone. The Ashwagandha could have a positive effect on mood but wouldn’t encourage weight loss and the levels aren’t that high so it may not do much.
A few of the ingredients, such as L-Theanine and magnesium are likely to help a consumer to feel less anxious or stressed. This could, in turn, help them to drift off to sleep slightly quicker, but the product wouldn’t sort out any sleep problems by itself. There is nothing in the product that would help to give an energy boost by itself.
