Intended for older men, Mancore’s Testosterone Replenish reminds us that testosterone levels begin dropping after the age of 30. This drop in testosterone means less energy, muscle mass, and libido.

Testosterone Replenish promises to halt and even reverse this natural decline in testosterone. But can it fulfill this promise?

Is Testosterone Replenish Backed by a Trustworthy Manufacturer?

Complete Nutrition, the company behind the Mancore brand, is the exclusive manufacturer and seller of Testosterone Replenish. Complete Nutrition is a health supplement chain located across North America.

The company was founded in 2004, sells more than 200 products, and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau.[1]

Complete Nutrition has a reputation for good customer service, products, and appears to be trustworthy.

What About the Ingredients?

Testosterone Replenish’s formula provides seven all-natural ingredients to help boost testosterone and energy.

Zinc (7.5 mg) is a well-known mineral crucial to enzyme activation and protein synthesis.[2] Zinc is often found in many testosterone supplements but its actual effect on testosterone levels is questionable.

Tribulus terrestris is traditionally used to treat male sexual dysfunction but clinical studies on its effect on testosterone are mixed. Some studies find that the ingredient does increase libido in animals.[3] But a 2005 study on tribulus terrestris’ effect on humans found the ingredient had no effect on testosterone production.[4]

White button mushroom has been shown in studies to boost free testosterone levels by blocking the enzymes that transform testosterone into estrogen.[5] White button mushroom lowers cholesterol and treats various heart diseases.[6]

Long jack root, perhaps better known as the “Asian Viagra”, is a popular herbal treatment for male sexual dysfunction. While studies of its effects on rats have been very successful,[7] there is no evidence it improves libido or human performance.

Cordyceps sinensis is an Asian mushroom that was shown to significantly raise testosterone levels in mice.[8] However, like long jack root, there is no research on how it affects humans.

Stinging nettle leaf is similar to white button mushroom in that it boosts free testosterone levels. It does this by preventing certain compounds from binding to and transforming testosterone into estrogen.[9]

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) (25 mg) functions as a precursor to sex hormones. Many clinical studies confirm more DHEA results in more testosterone.[10]

As an added bonus, DHEA also helps decrease body fat mass.[11]

While reviewing the ingredients, we noticed that many of the ingredients have not been proven to work on humans, putting the effectiveness of the entire formula into question.

When we’re not sure about the effectiveness of a product, we often read user reviews to see if the product actually works. Unfortunately, there are no user reviews on Testosterone Replenish.
Consequently, there is no way to know if Testosterone Replenish actually works.

Are There Side Effects?

Yes, many of Testosterone Replenish’s ingredients can cause side effects if taken in large dosages. However, most of these side effects aren’t serious, like nausea and stomach pains.

DHEA is a special cause for concern because it is known to cause hair loss and high blood pressure.

Testosterone Replenish does not provide information on each ingredient’s individual dosage, so it’s difficult to say how possible these side effects are.

How Do You Take It?

Take one capsule in the morning with at least 8 ounces of water about 15-30 minutes before breakfast.

Then in the afternoon, take another capsule with at least 8 ounces of water about 15-30 minutes before dinner.

Do not exceed two capsules a day.

What About the Price?

Currently, Testosterone Replenish is exclusively sold at Complete Nutrition stores across North America. The product should cost you $90 – $100 for a 120-capsule bottle.

Unfortunately, Testosterone Replenish is not backed by any sort of guarantee.

Final Thoughts

While Testosterone Replenish has solid ingredients and is backed by a trustworthy company, we cannot recommend it.

With no user reviews and no money back guarantee, we can’t tell if Testosterone Replenish actually works. Consequently, we feel the product is best left alone. There are other proven testosterone boosters that are cheaper than Testosterone Replenish too.

I have now come to the end of my first round of Mancore, with the T replenish, the Fatburn and the HGH spray. I am 50 years old and have been seeing the affects of low testosterone for years. I have to say I’ve been pleased overall with the main benefit being the energy level which I now enjoy. I have energy through the afternoon and into the evening. it does not feel like an artificial stimulant but more like natural energy.
As for the fat burning component I can see no real benefit other then some appetite suppressant. I still have to exercise and watch of my portion intake.
As for libido, I can see no real increase at all much to my wife’s dismay.
I think this product is a good place to start and then to decide what to do from there. It is definitely no magic bullet

Yes, I recommend this product
