Most guys in their early to mid 30’s start to feel the dreaded decrease in Testosterone. You know the symptoms….a lack of energy, low libido levels, and even depression plague millions of men throughout the world, and it can really suck! If you go to your doctor he will probably discuss using some sort of testosterone replacement therapy, like Androgel or something similar. These drugs work great, but they often contain a wide variety of side effects that don’t even make it worth taking. Not to mention when you stop taking them, you return back to exactly where you were beforehand.
However, there are natural alternatives that can help you. While nothing can totally replace the effects of a prescription drug, there are some all natural supplements out there that can “mimic” the effects of increased testosterone, and in some cases help restore testosterone to their natural level.
I have personally tested dozens of these Testosterone boosters over the years, and below are my top 3 choices based on my testing.
#1 Pick – Prime Male
For the longest time, Testofuel was my #1 choice when it came to testosterone boosting supplements.
That has changed over the years, and in my personal opinion, I believe Prime Male is actually superior to Testofuel.
Prime Male is a very effective testosterone boosting supplement, and is geared mainly towards older guys looking to boost stamina, energy, endurance, and libido.
It does this by using many of the same ingredients in Testofuel, but also includes 3 additional ingredients including mucuna pruriens, Nettle Root Extract, and Bioperine.
These ingredients target guys whose natural testosterone is already on the decline, and work to help you feel as if you were in your 20’s again.
The only downside is that it contains slightly less D-Aspartic Acid then Testofuel (1800 mg vs. 2300 mg., respectively).
However, with the addition of Bioperine, the ingredients in Prime Male are better absorbed, assuring you get the most benefit from them. You can read more about Prime Male in our official review here.
#2 Pick – Testofuel
Testofuel is made up of a proprietary blend of ingredients, that of which includes D-Aspartic Acid, or DAA. If you weren’t already aware, DAA works in the central brain region to cause a release of hormones, including an increase in testosterone.
It also includes Oyster Extract, which has been shown to contain large quantities of Zinc. Zinc plays a crucial role in modulating serum testosterone levels in normal men, and works to help reduce symptoms of hypogonadism. You can read more about Testofuel in our official review here.
#3 Pick – Testosteroxn
Testosteroxn is our #3 pick for a variety of reasons. For one, it contains a VERY powerful ingredient called DHEA, which has actually been shown in clinical studies to literally DOUBLE your free testosterone levels.
At a price of $60, it’s actually a bit less expensive then Testofuel and Prime Male, AND it still works very effectively. The guys over at Crazy Mass developed this one, and they are well known for producing high quality supplements at affordable prices.
I recently had a chance to test out Testosteroxn, click here to read more in my official review.
Frequently Asked Questions About Testosterone Supplements
Do they contain any side effects?
Like anything you ingest in your body, there is always the possibility for side effects. I have chosen these top 3 testosterone supplements based on their low instance of side effects, as well as other criteria. Of course, it’s always recommended that you speak with your doctor to discuss any interactions with medications you may be taking.
Do These Products REALLY Increase Testosterone?
I’ve taken a blood test both before and after taking many of these supplements, and my free testosterone levels have always increased, albeit a very small level. That said, it’s not the ability of these supplements to ACTUALLY increase blood testosterone levels, but rather to “mimic” the effects of increased testosterone.
They also act as effective over the counter viagra alternatives when used appropriately.
How long do I need to take these to see the best results?
While each supplement is different, I personally noticed the best results from each of these on an average of 2 – 3 months. Also, keep in mind that if you stop taking them you will see a reduction in the benefits. They are NOT intended to be a cure for decreased testosterone, but rather something to aid you.
Should I cycle these?
The simple answer here is YES. I found that by cycling these supplements, there was a lower instance of developing a tolerance to their effects. Generally speaking
Will any of these pop a drug test?
As stated earlier, I took a blood test after taking all of these supplements (which included an illicit drug test) and didn’t pop any of them.
Should I stack these with other supplements?
Personally speaking, I think it’s best to stack these with other supplements if you want to see the best results. For instance, I stacked Nitrocut and Testofuel at the same time, and within 2 months I had lost a significant amount of weight and increased lean muscle substantially.

I take testosterone shots weekly. The dosage is 1/2 a m/l. My question is, can I take test boosters while doing the shots? I'm 52 and my last blood test showed my test level to be at 500. I felt the best when my test level was over a 1000 but my doctor frowned upon that cut my dose. -Paul
Since you're taking shots prescribed by a doctor, you should check with him before taking supplements that may interfere with them.- Rob

I am looking at getting both the Testofuel and prime male to switch back and forth. My question is should you take one for a month and then switch or switch every other day? Thanks in advance. -Rob

Hey rob, would taking nitrocut with prime male as a stack be over kill . Being in my mid 50's . -Art
Not at all. It's a great stack. Use Nitrocut as your pre workout (though take it daily as well). It boosts nitric oxide levels for better performance. Use Testofuel every day to boost your testosterone levels naturally.- Rob

I've been on AlphaJYM for about 3 months. While I do like the way I feel, there are times I'm very tired even with eating clean. Out of the 3 you recommended does Alpha get anywhere close to any of them? And are any of the 3 available in the US? -A-Bzn
Yeah, AlphaJYM is a great product, right up there with my top three. Your problem could just be that you've built a bit of a tolerance to it. Switch to TestoFuel for a few months, and you should feel even better. All three of my top recommendations are shipped from (and to) the US.- Rob

I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer October 2009 and it was advised to remove the prostate [radical prostatectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy]. I had this procedure mid December 2009 and to-date I'm free of this cancer. Is it possible to regain strong erections again? I can with a Penis pump but doesn't last more than a few seconds once removed. I've just turned 76.Many thanks. -Robert
Continue using the pump, and take VigRx Plus pills as well to help with stronger, longer lasting erections. I can't say for sure if it will work or not, but it has been known to help. Best of luck- Rob

Hi What would the benefits of taking Testofuel with Vigrx Plus.. -Mike
Testofuel is a natural testosterone booster while VigRx Plus is a sexual performance enhancer. Testofuel will bolster the sexual benefits of VigRx Plus, while also providing the muscular, energy, and vitality benefits of the testosterone boost.- Rob
can I take low t and prostate supplements at the same time? -juan
It shouldn't be a problem, but you may want to start with a half dose of each to test the waters and make sure you don't notice any side effects.- Rob
I am currently taking nugenix. Is it ok to take this while taking creatine? Thank -Dale Hogan
Yeah, that's not a problem at all. You should do very well with the stack and a strong workout plan.- Rob
I am not a "guy." I am looking for testosterone treatment for women. Yes, women have testosterone too, and it decreases with age and illness. I would advise you to consider making testosterone supplements for women. I worry that the ones for men might be overkill. Thanks. -Faye
SupplementCritique.com is a review website. We don't make or sell supplements, we review them, and it's true that most of our readers are men, but not all by any means. Most natural testosterone boosting supplements are used by women with no negative issues at all. If you like, let me know what benefits you're looking for, and I'll make a more specific recommendation for you.- Rob
can a man who had a radical prostatectomy for cancer of the prostrate take any of the testosterone supplement drugs?l -Winfred
Natural testosterone boosters don't contain actual testosterone, but you'll still want to check with your doctor to find out if they're okay in your situation.- Rob
I had prostate cancer & was treated with radiation. My free testosterone is 4 & my total testosterone is 177! My doctors do not want me to use any hormone (androgel) as they fear a possible cancer return. My psa has stayed in the 0.25 range for the last 5 years. My question is do you have any research that shows I can use one of the testosterone boosters you describe without risk of prostate issues? I'm 61. -Rick
What's your ultimate goal - are you looking to perform better in the bedroom, increase your energy levels, lose weight, some combination? Let me know and I'll recommend something for you, but you'll definitely need to run it past your doctor to see if it's safe in your case. As for research, I don't really know of any, but check Google Scholar. You might be able to find something there.- Rob
How would you rate the max muscle t-1000? -Mickey

Hi rob,how good is d bal max ? What's your opinion.read some positive stuff about it,is it safe for building muscle or is it still a steroid or just another gimmick ? Or a weight gainer like serious mass.thanks again -Derek
I haven't checked this one out yet, but it looks interesting so come back in a couple weeks to check out my review. It's not a steroid, though. The steroid-like name is just a marketing ploy to get you thinking that's how good this stuff potentially could be. - Rob
How can I avoid stimulants that have a caffeine like effect? Recently had problems with a supplement that contained longfolia. So I switched to Nugenix which has no stimulant. I haven't taken Nugenix long enough to know if it will be effective. Do any of your top 3 recommendations no contain stimulants? Thanks. -Ted
Neither Testofuel and Prime Male contain stimulants. If you're interested in putting on muscle, go with Testofuel. If you're more about feeling more energ and improving your libido, go with Prime Male- Rob
Is VigRX safe to take with Prime Male? -Jim
Absolutely. It's a great stack for both getting in shape and improving performance.- Rob
hi Rob, you sugrsted that Testofuel and Tetosteron max can work good together, but how about Prime male and Tetosteron max toguether? I'm on my early 40's would that combination work for me? -moses
I don't recommend taking Testofuel with Testosterone Max. Where do you see that? I think you may mean Testofuel and Nitrocut? If that's the case, yes, stacking Nitrocut with Prime Male would also be a good stack.- Rob
Which one of the three testosterone boosters is least likely to cause gynomastia or has an estrogen blocker -Bobby
None of the three cause gynecomastia, and they don't contain estrogen blockers. They're not needed because they don't tip the testosterone scales the way TRT or anabolics would.- Rob

I have seen a new booster testogen. What you feel about that. It is better than testo fuel ? -Ruzzul

Rob, where can the above items be purchased? Also, I see that you recommend stacking the above supplements; what would be the best stack? I am 37 yr. old male and I have all of the symptoms of low testosterone, I have gained weight because of an Rx side-effect and my performance has decreased as well with horrible tiredness throughout my day.

Hi Rob, How should i cycle T-boosters like Testofuel or others and for how long should i take them and finally, would there be any withdrawal side effects when i stop using them or should i use them my whole life once started? Many thanx -Mohammad
Technically you don't have to cycle natural testosterone boosters. They don't shut down your natural hormone production, so you don't have to worry about side effects while taking them or after you stop. That said, I like to cycle off for a week after 4 weeks or 2 weeks after 8 weeks, just to start with a clean slate, making sure not to build a tolerance.- Rob
