Testosyn Review: Does This T-Booster Actually Help Muscle Growth?

Testosyn Buying Guide Review:

Rating: 

When we look for supplements that help with testosterone levels, it’s just sensible to go reputable companies that have been in the industry for a while. It also makes sense to check the label to do some independent research on the actual effectiveness of the ingredients. On both counts, Testosyn does rather well—it’s made by a well-known brand and its labels show lots of very popular T-boosting ingredients.

It’s also smart to check out the reviews to see what its real results are, because you can’t just trust the advertising copy. Reviews tend to be more objective, and you can get a better sense as to whether a T-booster will actually work for you and provide the improvements you need. At this point, Testosyn isn’t really looking too good.

What’s Testosyn?

Testosyn is a natural testosterone booster. That is, its ingredients are natural extracts designed to help your body to naturally increase its testosterone levels. It’s also designed to improve your hormonal balance by decreasing your estrogen levels, and in addition it helps your body maximize its use of the free testosterone you have.

It lists “increased sexual desire” as its first benefit on the list, but its marketing websites seem to emphasize how it can also “increase lifts and power” for your workouts. Its sales page is full of testimonials with pictures of previously chubby men now displaying impressively muscled physiques.

It’s in capsule form and you take 3 capsules a day. It’s manufactured by XPI, which has been around for the last 5 years and it’s based in Utah.

User Reviews

The testimonials on the official site all rave about Testosyn, but then that’s to be expected. It’s not as if XPI will actually feature negative reviews on its own sales page, right?

  • “I started with this product about 6 months ago and have now gone from 215lbs to 187lbs.” Jeff S, XPI Testosyn sales page.
  • “In the time since I have started taking Testosyn I have gained 5 pounds of muscle. As soon as you start taking Testosyn you will notice a change and an energy boost.” Trevor H, Testosyn sales page.
  • “I gained almost 30 pounds of muscle!” Tyler W, Testosyn sales page.

On the other hand, it only garnered an average rating of 3.4 stars on Amazon, and that’s with 189 customer reviews. While there were positives, others were decidedly negative:

  • “My husband is 61 and has a below low testosterone. He’s used prescription, synthetic testosterone in the past but doctors stress that it can be hard on the kidneys so he’s been looking for an alternative. He feels much more energetic since using Testosyn and it definitely helps him through his work day.” Michelle Lee, com.
  • “This product is great. I have been taking it as directed for 2 ½ weeks now. I felt the difference 2 days after I started. I have tried similar products and haven’t gotta the results I have with this one. Definitely will purchase again. Worth the money.” Louis, Amazon.com.
  • “Got a good energy boost but product made me itch all over.” E. Campbell.
  • “No effect.” DoubleEDad, Amazon.

It has also received middling reviews from other sites such as Consumer Health Digest (3.2 stars out of 5) and Supplements Watch (3 stars out of 5).

Results

We can concur with majority of the results that basically it’s a meh product. It may work for some, but the majority opinion is that it’s just too chancy. Your best bet is to pick something that works for most people, so that you have a good chance that it’ll work for you. It’s just a waste of time to pick a supplement that works only on some people, because chances are you’re just wasting your time and money.

Yes it can work. That’s true enough. But the review ratings aren’t just good enough to justify buying this when you have better options that offer a greater chance of success.

The Ingredients

It’s understandable that this supplement does offer a nice energy boost for some people. That’s because it has numerous ingredients that are commonly used for boosting testosterone levels. This contains D-Aspartic acid, fenugreek, Tribulus Terrestris, Eurycoma longifolia, maca root, and horny goat weed. Then it also contains the renowned BioPerine ingredient that helps your body absorb these ingredients more fully.

In addition, you also have your traditional added ingredients such as zinc, vitamin D3, and boron.

All these are all reputed to help in boosting testosterone levels in some way or another. What’s nice is that the label also lists the amount for each ingredient, so that you can confirm for yourself whether or not it has enough amounts for the ingredients.

You can also compare the amounts to what you can find in other T-boosters, and for D-Aspartic Acid Testosyn only contains 1,500 mg per serving. In other T-boosters, this can reach up to 2,000 to 2,300 mg.

Side Effects

In general, these ingredients (and Testosyn as a whole) doesn’t really cause any sort of side effects when you take it according to the label instructions. The problems only tend to appear when you overdose, which isn’t really a smart thing to do in any case. That’s especially true due to the fenugreek, which in large doses can cause diarrhea, stomach upset, bloating, and gas. If you have any allergies to any of the ingredients, then you may have a problem as well.

That was actually reported by an Amazon customer named Gregory Palma, who complained that it “contains Black Pepper Extract. Not listed in description. Caused severe heartburn; I cannot have black pepper.” But the truth is that on the label it clearly states that the BioPerine is a black pepper extract.

Where to Buy

You can Google this and buy it from the official site at XPIsupplements.com or on Amazon. On the official site and everywhere else, it costs $59.95 for 60 servings (180 capsules)

Conclusion

Sure you can try this. It does seem to have a nice ingredient list, although it doesn’t have enough compared to what you can get in better T-boosters. The fact that it has middling ratings suggests that it doesn’t help enough people, and that means there’s a fair chance that it may not help you as well.
