2TX Review

2TXThe 2TX testosterone supplement claims to have ingredients that boost testosterone as much as 98%. Whether you’re an athlete or have low testosterone, this boost could come in handy. But does 2TX work? I researched the claims to find out.

What Is 2TX Supposed to Do?

Max Muscle claims its product 2TX provides 3 benefits:

• Increased free and total testosterone
• Inhibited aromatase action
• Reduced sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG)

Free and total testosterone are both important, but free testosterone is what creates noticeable results. Because it’s not bound, the body uses free testosterone to stimulate muscle growth, diminish fat stores, and enhance sex drive.

Aromatase reduces testosterone by turning it into estrogen. Men need some estrogen, but not much. Estrogen decreases libido and causes the body to retain fat.

SHBG attaches to testosterone and makes it useless.

If it provides these benefits, 2TX should enhance muscle growth and strength, promote fat loss, and improve sexual health. So, does 2TX contain effective ingredients?

The Ingredients

Below are the active ingredients in 2TX. It also has the inactive ingredients maltodextrin, magnesium stearate, and gelatin.

Testafuranol – This patented ingredient is tribulus alatus extract. It comes from the same family as tribulus terrestris. A study involving rats showed tribulus alatus increases free testosterone levels by stimulating the testes to release more.[1] However, researchers haven’t proven tribulus alatus works for men.

Testofen – In one study, men took Testofen and exercised daily. Their total and free testosterone, muscle mass, and strength increased significantly and body fat decreased. The placebo group didn’t get major results.[2] Testofen contains natural steroids, which build muscle and boost testosterone.

Maslinic Acid – Derived from olive, maslinic acid is believed to enhance muscle growth and protein synthesis. One study tested maslinic acid’s effects on trout and found it works, but there are no studies involving humans.[3]

L-Carnitine L-Tartrate – L-carnitine metabolizes fatty acids and produces energy. The L-tartrate version is supposed to be even more powerful and effective. A study showed L-carnitine L-tartrate boosts testosterone and reduces muscle damage.[4] Because the study only had 10 participants, more research is needed.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) – This antioxidant reduces oxidative stress throughout the body. By reducing oxidative stress in the testes, ALA improves reproductive functions. It has been tested on rats, but not humans.[5] Supposedly, ALA also releases glutathione, which increases testosterone. Conclusive evidence is lacking.

Chrysin – Leydig cells produce testosterone and chrysin enhances this process. During a cellular study, researchers demonstrated chrysin’s effects on Leydig cells.[6] It may inhibit aromatase activity, too.[7] However, the ingredient has not been tested in human studies.

3,4 Divanillyltetrahydrofuran – Lignans are natural chemicals in flax seed and 3,4 divanillyltetrahydrofuran. They bind to SHBG and prevent the globulins from trapping and deactivating testosterone.[8]

White Button Mushroom – It suppresses aromatase activity and estrogen production. As a result, testosterone levels increase and estrogen’s negative effects are inhibited. So far, the only studies involved mice.[9]

Green Tea – Caffeine and catechins are the key substances in green tea. Caffeine boosts energy and stimulates the body to burn fat faster. Catechins reduce oxidative stress and enhance fat loss. Study participants taking green tea lost weight easier and improved their heart health.[10]

Safety and Side Effects

According to WebMD.com, these 2TX ingredients are generally considered safe:

• L-carnitine L-tartrate
• Alpha lipoic acid
• Chrysin
• White button mushroom
• Green tea

There’s not enough research to prove the other ingredients are safe. Testafuranol and Testofen may be safe, but the long-term effects are unknown. I’ve never seen maslinic acid or 3,4 divanillyltetrahydrofuran used before and online information about these ingredients is limited.

A few ingredients may cause…

• Rashes
• Stomach upset
• Dizziness
• Headaches

Green tea contains caffeine, but I’m not sure how much. If the dose is large, users may experience jitteriness, sleeplessness, and increased heart rate.

How Much to Take

The 2TX bottles contain 90 capsules. Each serving is 3 capsules and the company suggests taking 2 servings daily. They don’t show all the doses they use for each ingredient. Just these totals for the proprietary blends:

• Testosterone Modulator Complex – 660 mg
• Androgen Receptor Response Complex – 350 mg
• SHBG and Anti-Aromatase Complex – 350 mg

The first blend has Testafuranol, Testofen, and maslinic acid. The second blend contains L-carnitine L-tartrate and ALA. And the last blend includes the remaining 4 ingredients.

Since the company withholds individual doses, I don’t know if 1-2 daily servings contain safe, effective amounts.

Take 1 serving in the morning and take a second serving 6-8 hours later. 2TX works best on an empty stomach.

2TX was designed primarily for bodybuilders and athletes who want to build muscle and enhance recovery. Its secondary use is to reverse age-related testosterone declines.

2TX User Reviews

There are a few very positive testimonials on the 2TX official website. But I wanted to read unbiased reviews on an unbiased website.

I did find reviews on Amazon.com, but there were only 6, unfortunately. Two users gave a 4 and 5-star rating. Two users gave 3 stars and two users gave 2 stars. The average rating was 3.2 stars out of 5.

The user who gave a 5-star rating said 2TX enhances post-workout recovery. He didn’t build “huge muscles,” but that wasn’t his goal anyway.

The remaining users either said 2TX worked okay or didn’t work at all. One man said he experienced stomach upset. Most agreed the product wasn’t worth what they paid for it.

Buying 2TX

There are 3 places to buy 2TX. First is a Max Muscle store. The official website — MaxMuscle.com — has a store locator feature, so you can find a nearby store.

Second is MaxMuscleStoreOnline.com where 2TX costs $85.99. After you place an order, it cannot be cancelled. I couldn’t find information about a return policy.

Third is Amazon.com. The retailer Wholesale Marketplace Direct sells it for $67.06. There is no return policy.

Recommendation

The official website provides several studies and I found a few, too. However, none of these studies proved the 2TX ingredients boost testosterone 98%. Several were proven to increase testosterone, block aromatase, and inhibit SHBG; but human research is lacking.

I don’t know if all the 2TX ingredients are safe or if recommended dosages are used. There aren’t many user reviews, but the few I found weren’t overwhelmingly positive.

2TX is expensive, but it’s not the best testosterone supplement. I suggest you buy a different product.
