Test X180 shares a lot of similarities with other top-rated testosterone supplements.
Test X180 is supposed to increase testosterone and help you have more energy and build more muscle mass.
Now, what I want to know is if Test X180 is safe and effective. Let’s find out!
Test X180 Ingredients
Test X180 has a Growth Enhancement Matrix (400 mg) of the following ingredients:
Testofen is the same thing as Fenugreek; it has just been patented. This herb became popular several months ago when studies showed that it helps increase testosterone production and make more free testosterone available.
Panax ginseng and Siberian ginseng are well-known for being aphrodisiacs and natural energy stimulants. Some studies show that they help increase testosterone too.
Cordyceps Sinensis has been used for years in traditional Asian medicine. However, its medicinal benefits have never been tested on humans.
Tribulus Terrestris is used today by bodybuilders, but before that, it was used for thousands of years as an aphrodisiac by the Chinese.
Studies show that this plant may increase levels of luteinizing hormones, which trigger the production of testosterone.
Are the Right Doses Used?
Although Test X180 has a few clinically proven ingredients, I’m not sure what amounts are used because they are in a proprietary blend. The website mentions briefly that there are 300 mg Testofen per capsule. 300 mg Testofen twice a day is a clinically-proven amount of Testofen.
This leaves 100 mg for Tribulus Terrestris, ginseng, and Cordyceps. Studies show that you need at least 400 mg of Tribulus Terrestris and 100 mg of ginseng daily for these to be effective. Since Cordyceps hasn’t been tested on humans, there isn’t a recommended amount.
Will Test X180 Cause Side Effects?
Panax and Siberian ginseng are stimulants, but they’re mild so the chances of either one causing side effects is probably low.
Testofen and Tribulus Terrestris are generally considered to be safe. Test X180 has the clinically-proven amount of Testofen and it has less than the recommended amount of Tribulus, so I don’t think either of these ingredients will cause serious side effects.
What Do Users Say About It?
There aren’t many reviews of Test X180 online, but I was able to find a couple dozen on GNC’s website. The average rating people gave this testosterone supplement is 2.8 out of 5. 45% of people said they would recommend Test X180 to others.
What’s the Best Way to Use Test X180?
Each bottle of Test X180 has 60 capsules and each one is a serving. To get the proven dose of Testofen, you’ll need to take 2 capsules/servings a day.
The manufacturer suggests taking 1 capsule with breakfast and another, 30 minutes before your workout or with lunch.
If your goal is to build muscle with the help of Test X180, you will need to follow a strength-training program as well.
Is Test X180 Affordable and Guaranteed?
Test X180 costs about $70 when you buy it from GNC. GNC has a return policy, but they only issue refunds for products that have been unopened and unused. There is also a free trial option.
Update 10/1/2013: Turns out a lot of people are having issues with the free trial of Test X180. In the fine print it says that you will be sent a bottle of Test X180 and charged $74.98 + tax every 30 days. So “free” turns out to be pretty expensive if you don’t cancel your subscription. Sneaky, sneaky.
The Final Say on Test X180
Two servings of Test X180 have the clinically proven dose of Testofen, but not of the other ingredients. It received mixed reviews from consumers, so it might not work for everyone. Be sure to take this into account when deciding on a testosterone supplement.
