Testosterone boosters are “all the rage” these days. Test x180, manufactured by Force Factor, is the newest booster on the block. I first came across this product online on a website called SmarterLifestyles. According to the advertisement headlines, Test x180 is “a weird concoction developed by Cambridge scientist, is helping men everywhere feel 18 again.”
Hmm.. those are some powerful words.
But wait, the advertiser is kind enough to add this disclaimer:
“The materials presented on this website are not to be considered news or journalism of any kind and are purely advertising and we do not endorse the products or services offered by the link which you will be accessing.”
On the official website of Test x180, the product claimed to maximize muscle mass, enhance performance, boost sex drive and libido.
Now the question is: does Test x180 really work? Fancy words aside, let’s take a closer look at this formula.
Test x180 is said to be contain the following ingredients:
Siberian Ginseng and Panax Ginseng: Ginseng may help to increase libido and testosterone. Besides, it is a powerful full-body tonic.
Side effects: Ginseng may cause sleeplessness in few people.
Cordyceps Sinensis: commonly known as “ghost moth”. Its use has a long history in traditional Chinese medicine. It’s used as aphrodisiac and treatment for ailments such as fatigue and cancer, though more studies are needed to establish its effectiveness. Note that pure Cordyceps Sinensis is very expensive, and we are not sure about the potency of Cordyceps Sinensis inside Test x180.
Side effects: The recommended dosage is 3-9 grams daily of fermented Cordyceps. Alas, the exact amount of Cordyceps in Test x180 formula is unknown. Besides, Cordyceps may cause dry mouth, nausea, loss of appetite, nausea, or dizziness.
Tribulus Terrestis: a herb from Ayurveda that is commonly found on the shelves of most health and fitness stores. Many believe that it can help to increase sexual desire and to increase testosterone levels. However, a recent study reported in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology failed to find any measurable differences in testosterone levels between those taking the supplement and a placebo group.
As well, Test x180 also contains vitamin D, B6 and B12.
Now here’s the caveat: Test x180 is a proprietary blend of ingredients. In other words, we can’t be sure if the product contains effective dose to benefit users. As this product is new, the long term effectiveness is not known. I take a look on users reviews on GNC and Amazon, and found the rating to be average at best. The biggest complaint is that the formula did not work as advertised. Additionally, some users report these side effects: odor, sleeplessness and headache.
Beware of the free trials: Force Factor is offering 14 days free trials of Test x180. You are required to pay a small shipping fees to receive the samples. However, if you don’t cancel your subscriptions within 18 days you will be billed continuously for monthly supply.
Now if you are really interested in Test x180, my recommendation is to buy from retail stores like GNC or Amazon. From what I’ve seen, Force Factor made it difficult for users to make cancellation and obtain refunds. There are literally hundreds of complaints against them on various consumers website. Here’s a typical complaint:
From the analysis, I don’t see any reason why you should pay $70 for one bottle of Test x180.
So what do you think? Have you tried Test x180?
