Testosteroxn

Overpriced and underdosed, all talk and no trousers

Muscle builders looking for legal testosterone boostin who have heard the Crazymass hype about Testosteroxn.
I am busy - summarise it for me

I'd say full of odd choices of ingredient if there wasn't so little of each component in there. Missing so many of the things that are useful in a booster, but still charging a premium price for it.

Pitched as part of a Test-Tone Elite Series stack but certainly little use on it's own.

Testosteroxn Review

Testosteroxn is part of the Test-Tone Elite Series from supplement company Crazymass. Crazymass proudly call themselves the legal steroid alternative, which certainly raises expectations sky high, but can it do the same for testosterone?

As you might expect from a product with the balls (no pun intended) to compare itself in any any way to steroids, Testosteroxn promises big improvements in areas such as:

  • Muscle mass
  • Strength
  • Energy
  • Libido
primemale-isolated

But does it deliver?

How Does It Work?

At a Glance

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid to help with sexual performance
  • DHEA to support testosterone
  • L-Carnitine to help energy levels
  • Tribulus Terrestris to boost testosterone
  • Vitamin E to further help T

We’ve had to take a bit of punt on what some of these odd choices are doing in there because they’re not explained on the Crazymass website.  More on that later, but right now let’s bottom line this puppy with some scores…

The Scores

The Scores
Ingredients
3/10

Not great. Any time you include an outdated ingredient like Trib, you’re off to a bad start. Add to that something as unpredictable as vitamin E, a component as underwhelming as DHEA and a couple of choices more suited to fat burners – we’re really struggling for places to give credit. Weird selection that’s missing plenty of essentials we’d expect to see.

Price
3/10

Upwards of $60 is not unheard of in the booster market, but it’s the higher end of the scale and for that kind of money you could be buying the very best available.  This is far from that so there’s simply no way this cost is justified.

Trustworthiness
5/10

There doesn’t seem to be a safety issue with the manufacture of Testosteroxn and to their credit all ingredients and their doses are right there on the label.  But offering so little both in terms of quality and volume and charging so much grinds our gears.

Testimonials
4/10

Because Testosteroxn is only available from the official website, we only have those reviews to go on. All the testimonials are related to taking stacks of their products and you only get basic feedback for individual supplements.   First names, star ratings and a sort paragraph, most of them are, you guessed it 5 stars. No help at all.

Company
5/10

Crazymass have been around since 06 and have built up quite the range of supplements, all designed to help you pack on muscle.  They prefer their products to be stacked, this one with the rest of Elite Series, to boost energy, improve fatigue etc.

We’ve got real issues with the presenting of products like their even close to steroids and charging like they are.  Especially when they’re as unimpressive as Testosteroxn.


How Do I Take It?

Users should take 1 capsule 2 or 3 times a day with food. 3 times a day isn’t the worst, the best boosters tend to recommend 3 or 4 servings a day to keep active ingredients working all day, but with this formula we’re not sure the serving schedule makes much of a difference.


Side Effects?

Based on these ingredients we wouldn’t expect to see any side effects and can’t find reports of any.


Where Can I Get Testosteroxn?

Customers can only get Testosteroxn from the official Crazy Mass website for $66.99.

Testosteroxn Ingredients – In Detail


DHEA

– DHEA is cropping up more and more in booster supplements and we’re not sure why. The best it can manage in clinical trials is a minimal effect on testosterone and often it has no effect at all. Another head scratcher of a choice frankly. With another measly 50mg per serving we wouldn’t expect much.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16524719

 


Alpha Lipoic Acid

– This is something we’re more used to seeing in fat burning supplements, so it’s a little odd to see it crop up in a booster like this. That said a few studies do suggest that ALA might have a role to play in treating erectile dysfunction. We’d prefer the evidence to be a little strong though before we start using up valuable space in a T booster with it. Only 50mg again.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23905488


L-Carnitin

– L-Carnitine has been shown to reduce muscle damage allowing subjects to work out for longer without feeling the strain. In terms of helping testosterone though, in the right dose, it can control blood glucose, in turn helping to regulate insulin, which if unbalanced can help testosterone. Unlikely to help at 50mg a serving though.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19620516


Tribulus Terrestris

– Tribulus Terrestris was once thought to be a great testosterone booster, on a par with the likes of D-Aspartic Acid. All that positivity looks pretty out dated now as clinical studies have consistently shown there’s no improvement. Sometimes there may be a slight effect on libido, but that’s all. At 10mg a serving you’ll be lucky if you even get that.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15994038


Vitamin E

– Vitamin E is included in some boosters on the basis of research done mainly on lab rats. Worryingly, one notable human study concluded that vitamin E can actually lower your testosterone, so probably best steer clear.

Anything Missing?

– Loads.  Where’s are established boosters like D-Aspartic Acid? Or minerals like zinc, magnesium or boron?  What about estrogen control?  Testosteroxn is lacking in so many areas.

Overall

Overpriced and under-dosed, with some pretty odd ingredient choices. To be fair this product is supposed to be taken as part of an expensive stack, but that’s totally unnecessary as there are perfectly effective single boosters out there for around the same price and cheaper.
