TestroVax Overview

TestroVax is a testosterone-boosting supplement that uses a proprietary blend known as Testrothione. According to the official website, this blend was able to increase serum testosterone over baseline by 42% in 12 days.This clinical study was conducted as a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.

Adequate levels of testosterone in men is essential for more than just muscle.

Controlled levels of the hormone positively contribute to mood, energy levels, and an overall sense of well being.

TestroVax claims to be able to boost your testosterone levels naturally, which, in turn, will increase your lean muscle mass, boost your libido, and amplify your energy.

How does the “breakthrough” formula in TestroVax stack up against the research and the competition?

TestroVax Ingredients and How They Work

As mentioned above, TestroVax contains a proprietary blend, made up of the following:


  • One of the most recent ingredients that fitness companies have been raving about is D-Aspartic acid, which has shown some promise at elevating testosterone levels. While full studies are still inconclusive, D-AA was demonstrated in a clinical study to acutely raise testosterone levels in about 6 – 12 days.

    However, this testosterone increase is short lived…after about 30 days, testosterone levels typically return to normal. It’s recommended to cycle on and off supplements containing D-AA on a 3 week on, 1 week off basis because of this.


  • Fenugreek has been around for a long time in the commercial testosterone-boosting arena.

    Oddly enough, no studies have concluded that it truly boosts testosterone levels.However, fenugreek has been shown to boost glucose utilization.


  • A known nitric oxide booster, L-Arginine enhances blood flow through the mechanism of increased nitric oxide production.


  • A super antioxidant that has been in the news for its “anti-aging” and anti-inflammatory properties.


  • Another antioxidant that is critical in removing waste products from within the body.


  • An herb that grows in Siberia and northern Asia, Rhodiola Rosea Extract may be able to lower the stress hormone, cortisol.

    In turn, this may help the healthy and natural production of testosterone.


  • Licorice is proven to DECREASE testosterone.

    Several studies demonstrated the power of licorice to inhibit serum testosterone in men and women. (“Reduction of Serum Testosterone in Men by Licorice” 1999. Para. 1,2,3)


  • Red clover has several reported benefits, none of which have been proven in a clinical environment.

    In fact, some natural breast enlargement supplements contain it as a main ingredient. No evidence that is has any effect on testosterone levels.


  • A well-known aphrodisiac that may boost your libido but does nothing for your hormone levels.


  • Like GABA, Withania Somnifera extract has been shown to promote a sense of calm and well-being.While it may help you with occasional anxiety, no studies have concluded any testosterone boosting properties.


  • Found in many pre-workout formulas, this amino acids has been shown to help lower cortisol levels.This may allow for your body to increase its natural production of testosterone.


  • An ancient Chinese remedy for the common cold.

    It does wonders for the sniffles but what about your t-levels? Not a single study has confirmed its ability to boost your testosterone levels.

The TestroVax formula also includes Vitamins B6, B12, and Folic acid, which improve overall health as well as create a supportive environment for the production of testosterone.

The recommended dose is three tablets once a day with breakfast.

This is the dose taken in the clinical study as well.

TestroVax Side Effects

Depending on your individual tolerance of each of the specific ingredients in the proprietary blend, a number of side effects may be possible including the following:

  • Sleeplessness
  • Tremors
  • Dizziness
  • Nervousness
  • Headache
  • Heart palpitations

You should not use TestroVax if you have any pre-existing medical condition, including but not limited to: high or low blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmia, stroke, heart, liver, or thyroid disease, anxiety, depression, seizure disorder, psychiatric disease, diabetes, pernicious anemia, difficulty urinating due to prostate enlargement, or if you are taking an MAO inhibitor or any other medication.

TestroVax Pros and Cons


  • Try as I might, I could not find any advantages to taking this product.

    On their own, certain ingredients may be extremely beneficial; however, their benefits are overshadowed by other ingredients that may counteract them.


  • The cost: At $70 for a one-month supply, your attempt to naturally boost your testosterone levels is going to add up quickly.
  • Most of the ingredients within the proprietary blend have no evidence of boosting testosterone levels or, even worse, they lower testosterone levels in men.
  • Depending on your medical history, TestroVax can cause serious complications.

TestroVax Reviews/Complaints

When you visit the official website, Novex Biotech, and scan the reviews, it quickly becomes clear that they are one sided.Even the “negative” reviews still have three stars out of five.Novex Biotech is a brand that GNC endorses, so it isn’t a surprise that when you check out the reviews for this product on the GNC site, they are equally as one sided.

Heading over to Amazon, one of the most popular and most times brutally honest source for reviews, you may be surprised to discover that TestroVax isn’t carried on the site.

Most other products by Novex Biotech are available, but not this one.

Unfortunately, there are no video reviews on the supplement.

The lack of credible reviews from various sources should raise an eyebrow in most consumers.

Where to Buy TestroVax

As mentioned above, the main places to find TestroVax are on the main website (www.novexbiotech.com) and the GNC website (www.GNC.com).

You may also find the product on several lesser known online retailers. The 30-day supply (90-count bottle) sells for $69.99, plus shipping.

TestroVax Conclusion

The ingredients line-up in Testrovax is good, but in my opinion I think it’s missing a few key components. Most notably, the addition of ingredients like Magnesium, Oyster extract, and zinc can all play a role in increasing your testosterone levels to a healthy state, which of course this formula is missing.

However, the reviews over at Bodybuilding.com show some promise…raters give it a 8.1/10 star rating, so it MUST be working for SOME guys. If you’re looking for a healthy, all natural alternative to testosterone replacement therapy, Testrovax just might be the answer you’re looking for.

Whether you decide to go with this one or not, just remember that it quite pricey and if you are looking for a product of this type that you are going to take long term then this one is going to add up, but it is also quite effective by most accounts.

In Short: I would recommend this to a friend.

I had low energy, indecisiveness, problems sleeping, low-libido, feeling Lost. Dr did blood test for many things, results showed Low T.  He wanted me to inject T. I did not want to do that.  Another friend was rubing cream into his skin that was supposed to increase his T level but the cream did not work for him. I found and tried Testrovax.  Instruction tells you to take 3 per day for a month then skip a month.
I take vitamin and mineral supplements. But I am sensitive to high doses of anything so
1st month I took 2 per day with breakfast for 4 weeks.
2nd month I Did not take any for 4 weeks.
3rd month I took 2 per day.
4th month I did not take any.
During the 4th month Dr tested my blood, my T level was back in Normal Range well above bare minimum.
Around 3 weeks into 1st month I had started to feel improvement.  The Lost Feeling went away, InDecisiveness reduced, my mental Focus improved, Desire and Interest in Life Improved, I started Feeling Normal again, that was the result I was after. The Blood test was only clinical confirmation of what I was feeling.  Testrovax worked for me.

My Review

By Adam,  Jun 29, 2016

I took both Growth Factor 9 and Testrovax. First off there weren't any side effects with these two products.  I saw minimal results which caused me to stop using once they were all taken. My biggest complaint with the product is the price. It is very expensive and I didn't see enough noticeable results to continue spending that amount of money on it.

Husbands approval of Testrovac

By TRACI ROBINSON,  Sep 8, 2014

My husband works alot of hours,so getting in the jym is next to impossible on a regular basis. He started to take Testrovac with Factor 9 about 6 months agao, WE have seen his shoulders more defined , His libido is higher then I have ever known it to be, I have been with him 15 years.  My husband is between 40-45. The gains in the jym are faster and he maintains them even after weeks off. I am cautious to take the Testrovac, I did a few times and my aggression went up, I noticed I did not have the patients I needed for my patients at work.  So I will look for something else for a women. He plans on continuing this products use, We look for on sale deals, because it is pricey

Hi I just started to take testrovax today,and I usually train in the morning can I take 3 pills with a banana before gym on empty stomach? -Kareem

That should be fine. They recommend it with breakfast, probably to prevent any stomach upset. If you can take 3 pills with a banana and not get an upset stomach, you'll be fine.- Rob

Hi, how long should you take the stack of Factor-9 and TestroVax before getting off the cycle? I'm been taking the stack for 21 days and was wondering if I continue taking the stacks are there any side effects. -Johnnie

Hey Johnnie, You don't have to cycle off at all to avoid side effects, like you would with steroids. That said, I usually recommend taking a week or two off after taking any supplement for about 8 weeks. It just resets the system and keeps your body from becoming too accustomed to the natural ingredients in the supplements.- Rob

  1. I ordered my testro vac about 3 weeks ago,I haven’t received it yet, its been taken out of my bank account.when will I get my product?
    1. Hey Jimmy,
      We don’t sell Testrovax, you’ll have to contact whoever you ordered it from regarding your order.
  2. I am about to turn 43 and have gotten serious about working out this past year. I currently use whey protein, creatine, a carb gainer, and take the suma root.

    I’ve gotten good results and am basically happy with the results I’ve seen. However, I definitely seem to have plateaued rececntly. I am going to try the testrovax/gf9 stack to see if I can further my results.

    My question is….should I continue with all the other supplements I am using in conjunction with the stack?
    1. Hey Keith,

      You’re right, changing things up is the best way to get past a plateau. Yeah, you can continue to take everything without any problems.

  3. Do you recommend women taking this product if they have no hormones due to a hysterectomy and want to get into bodybuilding?
    1. Hey Tierney,

      There are lots of differing opinions about whether or not increasing testosterone levels is a good idea for women looking to gain muscle. Regardless of which position you take on this, a natural testosterone booster doesn’t increase levels to an amount that’s unhealthy for women. But instead of TestroVax, I recommend you look into Testofuel instead. It’s my number 1 choice.

  4. I’m 17 and I want to take testosterone pills to help myself in the gym. A lot of people say that this is a bad idea but they don’t give any real reasoning.

    Other people say that it’ll be fine. What do you think?

    1. Hey Charlie,

      It’s pretty well established that at your age, you should have plenty of testosterone. It can also be problematic to start taking supplements before your body is finished growing. If you’re looking to put on muscle, I’d recommend Muscle Advance Creatine and 100% Whey Gold Standard. They’re both safe and effective, and will most definitely help you out in the gym.

    1. Hey Bruce,

      That’s one of the great things about natural testosterone boosting supplements. There are no side effects, and they don’t reduce your body’s testosterone producing processes.

      In fact, just the opposite. It helps your body produce more of its own testosterone.

  5. yes, ive tried to download my free ebook, how to boost your testosterone naturally, and all I get is a message that says, 404 not found. what gives?
    1. Hey Cody,
      Did you check your email? It looks on my end like it’s already been sent.

      No worries though. I’ll send one out.

      Keep an eye on your email.
