Frequently Asked Questions

Professional athletes using supplements is nothing new. Any athlete looking to perform at his or her peak usually uses supplements like Fish oil, Conjugated Lipoic Acid, and Multi Vitamins.

Some of them use pre workouts to fuel their workouts.

Most of them use post workout recovery options like Protein, Creatine, and BCAA’s.

One thing is for sure, the vast majority of them probably wont risk their multi million dollar careers by taking something that is against the rules.

It happens, but not very often.

Which leads me to the topic in question…

Update (7/20/2017): I finally got a chance to try out Test X Core personally, Click Here to jump

The Fake Marketing Behind TestX Core

I’m browsing through my Yahoo news feed this morning and came across an AD with the heading “Tom Brady Under Investigation Again”.

tom brady under investigation testx core

I say AD because Yahoo does a REALLY good job of disguising their ads as articles.

But you can see the little “sponsored” disclaimer right at the top.

tom brady fake supplements

When I clicked on the ad it took me to a page that looked like the ESPN website, but something about it was off.

I’ll get back to that in a little bit…

As I scroll through the article, apparently the NFL is investigating whether or not Tom Brady used a supposed banned supplement that goes by the name of TestX Core.

According to them, TestX Core is a pill taken by many pro athletes and bodybuilders, but the NFL is considering banning it for 2 reasons:

  1. It makes athletes 150% stronger on average and gives you a 3X increase in stamina, and
  2. You don’t have to diet or exercise while your using it.

That’s right, you can sit around on your fat ass all day, eat potato chips, and you’ll magically gain muscle and get shredded.

If alarm bells aren’t going off in your head right now they probably should be.

Not only are these claims completely absurd and impossible, but they serve to insult my intelligence and the intelligence of anyone who comes across it.

The article goes on to explain that they received a free bottle of Test Core X for experimentation, and the results were shocking.

The editor of this article, a guy by the name of “Ryan”, went from this:

testx core before and after

to this:

in just one month…

And all he had to do was take 2 pills of TestX Core per day to achieve the body of his dreams.

Why This Article (and others like it) is Complete B.S.

The first thing that you may (or may NOT) have noticed is that, despite looking like it, this is NOT the real ESPN website.

How do I know this?

Well, look at the URL in the address bar…

//www.supplementcritique.com/wp content/files/2017/03/fake espn

Does it say ESPN.com? Of course it doesn’t.

In fact, it says com-entertain.today.

You’ll also notice a little disclaimer at the top that says “Advertisement”, which of course blends in to the header easily.

//www.supplementcritique.com/wp content/files/2017/03/advert

Additionally, if you run a search on Google for something like “Tom Brady under investigation for using supplement”, you get these results returned to you:

tom brady using supplements under investigation

Notice how you don’t see any legit websites like Fox sports net, Yahoo sports, or the NY Times talking about this investigation?

Don’t you think that if the worlds most famous football player was under investigation for ANYTHING it would be plastered all over the web?

Well, it turns out another site recently called out the B.S. that the stories you’re seeing aren’t real.

In fact, the truth is there is no Ryan Hasman over at ESPN, and remember that before and after pic you saw earlier in the article?

This one…

ryan hasman espn testx core

Well, I did a reverse image search and it turns out that was completely stolen from a website called GotHairLLC.com.

//www.supplementcritique.com/wp content/files/2017/03/stolen before and after

Got Hair LLC is a medical office located in Bronx, NY, and that supposed TestX Core before and after pic you’re seeing was actually one of the clients who used their HCG weight loss program.

Additionally, if you look at the Facebook comments down at the bottom you’ll also see that they’re fake as well.

//www.supplementcritique.com/wp content/files/2017/03/fake facebook

I know this because if you try to leave a comment yourself, you’ll quickly realize that you can’t.

What’s Even Worse, Is…

When you go to order TestX Core, you’ll note that you have to put in your credit card information to help pay for the shipping for your supposed “free trial”.

It’s a modest fee of $4.95, which sounds great right?

testx core free trial

However, what you probably missed was the part about them charging you $89.41 15 days after you order the supplement.

It’s all right here in the terms and conditions, which is conveniently (for them) in fine print at the bottom of the page.

testx core terms and conditions

If you can’t read it, I’ll type it out for you here:

“By placing an order, you will pay S & H to receive a 30 day supply.You will also be automatically enrolled in our membership program.

The program will charge you $89.41 on the 15th day of your order date for a monthly supply and every 30 days thereafter until you cancel.You can cancel at any time by calling +1-855-322-8780.

If you cancel before the 14th day of your order date, you pay the S&H of your 30 day supply.

If you cancel after the 15th day of your order date, you shall pay for the 30 day supply plus any future supplies without refund.”

So not only will you be charged the full price for the product in 2 weeks, BUT, you’ll also be billed every 30 days thereafter and sent a new bottle.

What is Test Core X?

All B.S. aside, does the supplement even work?

Visiting their website, the claims about it’s benefits are a little vague.

For example, they say that TestX Core is “designed to stimulate your bodies ability to produce optimal levels of testosterone”, but they don’t really explain exactly how it does this.

They do go in to explaining the importance of:

It’s all detailed in the video below:

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWpHG8Vxl3A]

But they really fail to mention exactly how Test X Core, SPECIFICALLY, will help with any of this, other than stating that it will break through any plateaus with their exclusively formulated blend.

TestX Core Ingredients

Well I did a little digging and took a look at the ingredients label.

According to them, Test X Core contains ingredients such as Saw Palmetto, Magnesium, Panax Ginseng, Tongkat Ali, Zinc, Vitamin B6, Fenugreek extract, Lycopene, Tribulus Terrestris extract, L-Arginine, Taurine, and Boron.

Here’s a snapshot of the label:

test x core ingredients label

There’s nothing really “revolutionary” about this supplement, as these very same ingredients can be found in a multitude of other testosterone boosters, pre workout pills, and even male enhancers.

In fact, the combination of L-Arginine and Tribulus is very common in bodybuilding circles, as it’s been shown improve vascularity and results. (Source)

L-Arginine is a non-essential amino acid that is actually found in a wide variety of foods we eat, specifically red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. (Source)

Specifically, it’s consumption causes a process called Vasodilation, which is a widening of the blood vessels and arteries.

This widening allows for improved blood flow, which in theory, helps to deliver nutrients more effectively throughout the body.

However, because of this widening it does have a tendency to lower blood pressure, so it’s important to make sure you check with your doctor first before taking it. (Source)

There’s also Magnesium, which is an essential chemical element that’s found in many of the foods you already eat.

One of the key ingredients in TestX Core, Fenugreek, is a widely used ingredient found in literally HUNDREDS of testosterone boosters, including many we’ve personally tested.

Used very heavily in India as a cooking additive, some of the reported benefits of Fenugreek include:

  • Improved digestion and lowers cholesterol (Source)
  • Reduces inflammation in the body, and in turn may be an effective natural arthritis treatment (Source)
  • Improves exercise performance when combined with creatine (Source)

Notice I didn’t mention anything about increased testosterone?

Well, that’s because the data on this claim is somewhat mixed.

In one study on a patented version of Fenugreek called Testofen (not in TestX Core), the results of the study concluded that there was significant support for free testosterone compared to a placebo group. (Source)

However, subsequent studies have been unable to replicate these results.

On top of that, the claims made by Testofen have spawned a rash of lawsuits regarding their claims. (Source)

TestX Core Reviews

Apart from the usual fake review websites, we did find some genuine feedback on TestX Core. According to the reviews on Amazon, it’s not a very pretty picture.

testx core reviews on amazon

As you can see above, the vast majority of testimonials rate the product 2 stars or below, and reading through them seems to support that rating.

Phrases like:

  • Total crap
  • No benefit whatsoever
  • Not worth it

seem to be pretty prevalent.

There were 2 five star reviews, but one gentleman elaborated on his results, stating “no further comment”.


Well, that’s not very helpful now, is it?

One video on Youtube reportedly shows successful TestX Core before and after photos, although there is absolutely no concrete evidence that these pics are indeed a result of using this particular supplement.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2dGumSHB84]

So what better way to find out if it works then to try it out yourself, right?

Well, that’s just what I did.

My Personal TestX Core Review

test x core review

At the behest of some of my visitors, who’ve been bugging me for weeks to try Test X Core out, I finally decided to give it a shot.

I ordered a 1 month supply off of Amazon for about $71, and received it within a few days.

The directions on the label state that you should take 2 capsules daily with a full glass of water with your pre-workout meal.

Since I don’t really eat a pre-workout meal, I just decided to take it on an empty stomach about 45 minutes prior to my workout.

In the first week, I have to admit I really didn’t feel anything apart from a mild headache which hit me right around day 3.

Was this a result of using Test X Core?

Probably not.

About mid-way through the second week I actually started to notice a little bit of a boost in libido.

It was subtle at first, but over the course of a few days I started waking up with a RAGING hard-on.

The kind of hard-on I’ve described in some of my other reviews like Nugenix and Noxitril, where it’s so difficult to take a piss because you have a boner pointing straight up.

Usually I end up pissing in the shower on days like that lol.

Apart from that, I didn’t notice any of the other benefits they list, like:

  • Heightened workouts: No effect here.
  • Enhanced muscle mass: Which would probably have been a result had my workouts improved.
  • Decreased body fat: Same as above.

Who makes TestX Core?

According to the label and my research, Test X Core is distributed by a company called Phenom Health, a company I believe is headquartered in the UK.

They are behind several other products, including Bioslim Burn, NO Max Shred, Omega-3 IQ Elite, and Synagen IQ, a supplement we actually wrote about in the past.

If you run a search for Phenom Health complaints on Ripoffreport.com via google, you’re literally swarmed with numerous complaints about being overcharged for various products.

TestX Core FAQ

Was TestX Core featured on the TV show Shark Tank?

Unlikely. I dug around on the official Shark Tank website, and found no mention of Test X Core whatsoever.

testx core shark tank

Surely if it were on the show you would have seen SOMETHING about it, but alas there’s nothing.

This is not the first time I’ve seen this claim.

For a brief period of time there was an ad floating around on the internet that claimed the investors on Shark Tank invested in some miracle testosterone booster.

Of course, that claim turned out to be FALSE.

Are There Any TestX Core Side Effects?

They don’t make any mention on their official site about TestX Core being side effect free, but literally ANY supplement has the potential to produce unwanted effects.

For example, using the primary ingredient Horny Goat Weed for an extended length of time has been shown to cause dizziness, vomiting, dry mouth, thirst, and nosebleed. (Source)

Another primary ingredient, Korean Ginseng, has been known to cause a host of adverse effects, including insomnia, headache, agitation, upset stomach, and dizziness. (Source)

As with any supplement, it’s always crucial that you speak with your doctor before consuming ANY supplement to reduce the risk of drug interactions.

This is especially important if you suffer from a medical condition like diabetes, high blood pressure, or insomnia, as your symptoms may be exacerbated.

Can I buy TestX Core in stores?

I called up my local GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, and Walmart, and none of them carry (much less ever heard of) Test X Core. You can only buy it on their official site (www.TestXCore.com) or on Amazon, although as of this review it was currently unavailable there.

It’s unknown if they sell it in Canada or Australia, but my suspicion is that it’s not because it contains Tribulus Terrestris, which I believe is banned on those countries.

Should I take it with anything else?

According to a few sources I looked at, some of these fake articles say that you should take TestX Core with other supplements like NO max shred or NO2 Shred.

This is a scam. They are only telling you to take it with these other supplements so they can make more money.

In general, if a supplement needs to be taken with other supplements, i.e. if it will only work if you spend more money, that means it would have never worked in the first place.

TestX Core Recommendation

I’ve seen these fake ads being sprinkled all over social media for years.

Products like Hypertone Force, Ripped Muscle X, and Anabolic RX 24 use cleverly crafted advertisements that “look” like the real Mens Health, ESPN, and Forbes websites.

It always starts off with some “revolutionary new supplement” breakthrough that athletes like Conor McGregor, celebrities like The Rock, and personal trainers are using.

And it almost ALWAYS turns out to be complete B.S., and most cases ALWAYS involves some sort of “free trial” that guys think is a sample, when in reality nothing could be further from the truth.

Don’t buy into the hype!

Does Test X Core REALLY work?

In my personal experience, it did, but not exactly the way they described.

If you’re looking for a potent libido booster, and don’t mind waiting for a week to allow it to kick in, then Test X Core may be right for you.

However, if you’re looking for something to help improve lean muscle mass, decrease body fat, and experience better workouts, there are better products on the market for that.

What’s the best time to take testxcore and nomad shred tablets please -Phil

I'm not familiar with nomad shred tablets, but the instructions for TestXCore are to take 2 pills per day with a glass of water. They don't say what time of day, which means any convenient time would be fine. Just try to keep it to the same approximate time each day.- Rob

  1. beste Rob, ik ben een zware rugpatient. Door de vele medicatie van pijnstillers heb ik problemen met mijn “jonge heer”die dienst weigerd.

    De advertentie van ‘test X core’ leek mij de oplossing voor me. Wat zou jij me kunnen aanraden?

    En er mogen gerust wat kilo’s af bij me. Ik heb vroeger altijd fitness gedaan maar door mijn toestaan lukt dit niet meer.

    Op welke site is het veilig om zoiets te bestellen? Op de meeste sites wordt er gretig gebruik gemaakt van je bankgegevens…(als je begrijpt wat ik bedoel) Alvast bedankt voor de feedback. met vriendelijke groet, Alain

    1. Hé Alain,
      Groeten! Ten eerste werkt Test X Core NIET. Ik weet dat mijn beoordeling niet in het Nederlands is, maar als je de pagina vertaalt, zie je de vele redenen waarom ik het niet aanbeveel. Het klinkt alsof je het meeste baat zou hebben bij een vetverbrander met de naam Instant Knockout. Het is de beste vetverbrander die we ooit hebben getest en we hebben er tientallen door de jaren heen persoonlijk getest.

      Hier is mijn recensie: https://www.supplementcritique.com/instant-knockout-fat-burner-review/

      Ik hoop dat dit helpt en laat het me weten als je nog vragen hebt!
  2. i took the free trial and the man in question was Jason Stratham, after watching your review, I am sceptical about this product, (testx core)please advice of a genuine product. I would be forever grateful.

  3. Hi I’m quite skinny build I want to gain weight and muscle I’ve been looking at what to take/eat can you point me in the right direction thanks
    1. Hey Kris,
      First off, I’m sending you my free “How To Get Larger, Stronger, and More Powerful” eBook. It’s loaded with tons of tips on diet and exercise to help get you on the right track to attaining your goals.

      Supplements wise, check out the Crazy Mass Bulking Stack. It’s perfect for hard gainers like yourself who are looking to pack on mass, strength, and muscle, here’s my review: https://www.supplementcritique.com/crazy-mass-bulking-stack-review/

      Hope this helps and let me know if you have any other questions.
  4. Thanks Rob for exposing this scam, by this product. I to.saw an ad by them on facebook.

    They were using Lebron James instead of Tom Brady. They said the NBA was going to ban him from using this product, because it made him stronger then the other players!

    Thanks again for your investigations!
