Thanks to low testosterone levels, 15 – 16% of men have low libidos. Troxyphen is aimed at helping men feel and look better with more testosterone.

Troxyphen is a brand new supplement that claims to boost testosterone and energy, burn fat, and promote weight loss. Can one pill do all this? I’m skeptical. Research on Troxyphen’s ingredients will give us the answer.

What’s Inside the Bottle?

Troxyphen is a powerful testosterone-boosting fat burner for men. Can the ingredients stand up to the claims? Let’s take a look.

Testosterone Boosting Blend: 500 mg

Testofen Fenugreek Extract: Fenugreek is a plant most often used in curry and other Indian food dishes. It supposedly boosts libido and lowers blood glucose levels. Testofen is the brand name, and Testofen fenugreek supposedly increases free (active) testosterone.

There isn’t enough evidence to support the claim that fenugreek boosts testosterone.

L-Arginine Proglutamate: L-arginine is an amino acid that increases nitric oxide levels and relaxes blood vessels. It also prompts growth hormone to release. L-arginine also promotes fat metabolism.

Tribulus Terrestris: This herb is used in Chinese medicine to boost libido and increase muscle mass.

According to animal studies, tribulus terrestris increases testosterone. Higher testosterone levels mean less time is required for muscles to recover after a workout. Testosterone also boosts protein synthesis. [1]

Potency Wood Extract: This flowering plant supposedly improves libido. It’s used as a natural remedy for erectile dysfunction.

Saw Palmetto Extract: Saw palmetto is in nearly all over the counter prostate supplements because it treats enlarged prostates. According to Medline Plus, saw palmetto is just as effective as prescription medications when it comes to treating enlarged prostates. It promotes healthy sexual health in men.

Muria Puama Powder Extract: This Brazilian tree is used to treat impotency and improve sexual desire. According to a book called The Viagra Alternative, muria puama can also provide psychological benefits to men with sexual weaknesses. [2]

DHEA-Dehydroepiandrosterone: DHEA is a steroid hormone. It stimulates male characteristics (like facial hair) and male sex organs. DHEA is banned for professional athletes because it’s a muscle-boosting steroidal hormone.

Thermogenic Shred Blend: 223 mg

Caffeine Anhydrous: Caffeine boosts thermogenesis, or the heat your body uses to digest food and other functions. Caffeine increases calorie burn at rest and during exercise. It also prolongs endurance and boosts energy, resulting in a better, more intense workout.

In clinical studies, caffeine boosts fat oxidation and calorie burn through thermogenesis. In one study, caffeine boosted 24-hour energy expenditure. [3]

Synephrine Caprylate: Also known as bitter orange, synephrine caprylate has replaced the banned appetite suppressant ephedrine. Bitter orange suppresses appetite and burns fat.

Yohimbe: The bark from the yohimbine tree is used to treat erectile dysfunction. It also has fat-burning properties.

One clinical study performed on professional soccer players showed yohimbe’s ability to burn fat and improve athletic endurance. Players with yohimbe saw a significant drop in body fat compared to those on placebo. [4]

Delivery Agent: 2 mg

Bioperine™: Bioperine is a pepper extract. It contains 95% piperine, which is a potent alkaloid. Bioperine helps absorb Troxyphen’s ingredients into the body.

Who Makes Troxyphen?

Troxyphen is manufactured by truDERMA and you can visit the website here. Both the company and the product are brand new, so they don’t really have a reputation yet. Troxyphen was trademarked late in 2012 and is just days from being released for sale on the official site, Troxyphen.com.

Because Troxyphen is so new, there aren’t any reviews or testimonials for it yet.

Is Troxyphen Easy to Use?

Yes! You just take one capsule in the morning and one in the afternoon, each with eight ounces of water. You can take Troxyphen at any time during the day, but avoid taking it less than four hours before you go to bed. It may keep you up all night.

Troxyphen has caffeine and other energy boosters, so don’t take it too late. Most people take one first thing in the morning and right before a workout.

Safety Concerns

The next question is whether or not Troxyphen is safe. Side effects of Troxyphen include hair loss or growth, aggressiveness, acne, and estrogen increase, among others. Because it is a stimulant-rich formula, there are possible side effects. Here are the main ingredients and their side effects:

• Fenugreek – upset stomach, bloating, diarrhea
• Saw Palmetto – dizziness, constipation, headache
• DHEA – hair loss, acne, high blood pressure, deepened voice, facial hair
• Bitter Orange – high blood pressure, fainting, migraines
• Caffeine – headaches, jittery or shaky feeling, insomnia
• Yohimbe – nausea, anxiety, tremors, racing heartbeat, rash

Troxyphen isn’t intended for use by women. One side effect of raised testosterone is facial hair growth in women.

Don’t mix Troxyphen with other stimulants, including caffeine. Troxyphen is not intended for people under 18. It is also not for you if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.

What You’ll Pay

When it’s released in a few days, Troxyphen will be available from its official website as well as third party sellers. Each bottle has 60 capsules, which is a month’s worth.

• GNC.com: $55.99
• Amazon.com: $55.99

Return Policy

Because Troxyphen.com hasn’t officially launched yet, we can’t see the return policy. Other sellers’ sites like GNC.com and Amazon.com offer return policies.

Should You Try Troxyphen?

It is hard to tell if Troxyphen works because it is a brand new product with no customer reviews or testimonials. The ingredients are proven, and many of them are natural. Even with natural ingredients, there is a risk of side effects.

Many of Troxyphen’s ingredients are proven to be natural cures for male sexual problems, including low testosterone. Other ingredients are proven fat burners. Because Troxyphen is a proprietary blend, it’s impossible to know if the ingredient amounts in Troxyphen match those used in studies. But the ingredients speak for themselves.

Troxyphen is safest for those who are accustomed to high caffeine and stimulant doses. If you’re a guy with low energy, low testosterone, and fat to lose, Troxyphen may be a good option for you. Because it’s so strong, talk to your doctor before you try it.

I got this for my boyfriend, hes in his 30′s. He didn’t feel like he necessarily needed something besides the regular protein or pre-workout he was taking, but after using this for 3 weeks I don’t think he is going to stop anytime soon. I heard an ad on the radio for 2 free bottles with your order and that is exactly what I got. I went for the buy 3 get 2 free package because it was a great deal compared to other prices I’ve seen online and now he has a 5 month supply of the stuff.I could tell a difference in his energy before he even mentioned how great he was feeling… not to mention he is looking great too! I definitely recommend trying this.

I can’t make any claims about the product because I haven’t tried it. However, I heard a commercial on the radio yesterday saying if I go their website, I can get 2 bottles free. I thought “Well, that’s a good offer. I’ll check them out.” Turns out, the only way you get 2 free bottles is if you buy 3. The commercial never says you have to buy 3 to get 2 for free. They definitely make it sound like you could be 2 bottles free to try it out. The product may work great but I don’t really trust a company that has to use misleading marketing in order to sell their product.

No, I do not recommend this product

Took a bottle of this product, I started off taking one pill a day for a week before trying two a day, id recommend doing the same, I felt immediately more alert and attentive, became fairly jittery, heart racing, the jittery feeling usually went away after working out and running, after a week or so on two pills a day the jitteryness subsided, my workouts where much more intense and remained at a high tempo, I’ve lost 10 lbs and have increased my squat and bench max. I was on a very strict diet during this time aswell, I noticed my voice got deeper and more facial/body hair. Overall I thought this product was fairly decent, I recommend taking this supplement with food and water aswell

Yes, I recommend this product
