Quick Take: I’ll get to the $10 million bit of the title in a later part of this review. For now, let me just tell you that the formula has 16 ingredients. That’s probably more than the average testosterone boosting formula. However, it’s not all about how many ingredients you put in a capsule. It’s also about how well the ingredients do for their intended purpose and if their dosages are adequate to actually make a difference. SPOILER ALERT: RegiMEN failed at both but let’s take a look anyway.
- The brand RegiMEN is under the company Vestiage, Inc which supposedly centers on being a “healthy aging company”
- Advertised by their label to “Leave Age Behind”, this looks to coincide with the company’s goals.
- Also on their label, this product is designed to “Maximize Natural Testosterone Production” but honestly, the ingredients don’t do this claim justice.
- Pretty hard looking for more information regarding this product or this brand because they don’t actually have an official website.
- Manly minerals Magnesium and Zinc make their way into the formula but the dosages and the forms aren’t anything to get excited about.
- The formula has 3 prop blends: Male Performance Blend, Anabolic Blend, Anti-Estrogen Blend.
- It seems like it was on GNC before but the marketing giant looks to have cut its ties with anything RegiMEN. It’s still available to buy on Amazon though.

RegiMENs T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Zinc & Magnesium – Both of these are wonderful additions to any testosterone boosting formula. Zinc in particular, might be the best mineral for test because without it, there technically wouldn’t be any testosterone considering that it’s a raw product required for testosterone synthesis. Magnesium, on the other hand, is a testosterone protector by inhibiting the T-killing activity of SHBG while also protecting levels of testosterone from the depleting effects of stress.
Male Performance Blend
- Ajuga Turkestanica – This plant’s active compound is Ecdysteroids and the results of this study showed that these Ecdysteroids clearly confirmed that it positively influences anabolic activity.
- Horny Goat Weed – As the name suggests, it’s an herb that gets goats horny but it works for us humans too! Unfortunately, it doesn’t really boost testosterone but it mimics the effects of our favorite manly hormone.
- Rhodiola Rosea – Similar to magnesium, Rhodiola Rosea maintains levels of testosterone after a stressful day at the gym. It also works to reduce levels of estrogen.
- Maca – It’s a male enhancer in the sense that it promotes sex-drive and healthy sperm but as a testosterone booster, Maca needs to be studied more.
- Pygeum Africanum – This herb has been used in the treatment of BPH, making it a great ingredient for prostate health.
- Saw Palmetto – Similar to Pygeum Africanum, the active compounds of this plant have been used for BPH treatment.
- Tribulus Terrestris – One of the most popular herbs used in testosterone products, Tribulus is more likely to be a treatment for limp dick more than a testosterone booster. While some studies show that it increases test levels in T-deficient individuals, it doesn’t seem to be beneficial to healthy men’s testosterone status.
- Rhaponticum Cathamoides – Also known as Maral Root, this plant also contains Ecdysteroids that improve athletic performance without necessarily taking testosterone levels higher.
- Muira Puama – Typically used to enhance sex drive.
- 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone – According to this article, this is a compound typically used by athletes to “decrease cortisol levels, increase protein synthesis, and improve overall recovery from exercise”. Great for gaining bigger muscle without the side effects that come with playing with hormones (i.e., acne, skin rash, mood swings, etc). Safety first, bro.
- Eurycoma Longifolia – Better known as Tongkat Ali, this manly herb is a great natural testosterone booster with one study stating that it increases levels of testosterone by 37% while also decreasing cortisol by 16%.
- Red Clover – In a way, this plant is kind of a double-edged sword. On one hand, it may decrease levels of estrogen which is essentially great for men’s health and testosterone. On the other hand, it could also increase these feminine hormones under relatively unknown conditions.
- Chrysin – Good for inhibiting estrogen but there’s a catch. Our body doesn’t absorb Chrysin when taken orally. For this ingredient to be effective, it needs to be injected directly to the testicles and I for one definitely don’t like that.
- Diindolymethane – Another double-edged sword ingredient. There are studies that support DIM as an antiestrogenic supplement but these studies are mostly centered on women. Regardless, it could work for men too. However, there are also studies that show DIM decreasing testosterone.
Take three 3 capsules (1 serving) in the evening after dinner.
16 ingredients total. That’s quite a long list to analyze. Let’s get started and get this over with.
Starting with manly minerals Zinc & Magnesium, these are both great for testosterone. Unfortunately, their dosages are on the low end. Additionally, RegiMEN doesn’t show what forms they used which leads me to think that they used the cheapest and least effective ones. Because, if you think about it, if you used high quality ingredients in your formula, you’d be proud of it, right?
I’m not entirely sure about this because RegiMEN doesn’t actually have an official website but judging from the first blend’s name, Male Performance Blend, this looks to be their male enhancement blend. If that’s the case, then the ingredients seem to be qualified. However, there’s only one testosterone booster here and that’s Rhodiola Rosea. Including Maca, there might be two but there’s not a lot of evidence to support its T-boosting claim. The other ingredients in this blend support male health by enhancing libido, muscle growth, and prostate health.
Again, I’m assuming here but judging from the name Anabolic Blend, the second prop blend looks to be geared towards muscle growth and recovery. Ingredients such as Rhaponticum Cathamoides and 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone enhance anabolic growth without altering levels of testosterone. Regimen also has Tongkat Ali to boost testosterone and probably more important to the blend’s “assumed” purpose, lowers levels of cortisol. Tribulus and Muira Puama are potent ingredients for sexual performance and if you channel this naughty energy right, it can be translated to a better performance at the gym too.
While the last two blends are a mixed bag of basically the same purpose (testosterone, sex, and muscle), the last blend is where they really stumble. The Anti-Estrogen Blend of RegiMEN is composed of 3 ingredients that are meant to inhibit estrogen which is an essential element if you want to successfully and safely boost testosterone. However, the 3 ingredients they chose are all controversial ingredients. Here you can see risky double-edged ingredients in Red Clover and DIM and I suggest you take extra care when dealing with these two. Chrysin on the other hand, is great for inhibiting aromatase activity but do you really want to inject this straight to your marbles? No? I thought so.
Does it Work?
Zinc and Magnesium are basically thrown out the window with the way they are dosed. However, the prop blends still do hold testosterone boosting potential. Keyword their is “potential”. I know this isn’t the analysis section anymore but allow me to explain.
Out of the 3 prop blends, only 2 have testosterone boosting ingredients. And out of those 2, they only have 1 testosterone booster each. Additionally, the testosterone boosters in those blends aren’t even the most prioritized ingredients. And considering that they’re in prop blends, there’s no way of knowing if their dosages are adequate or not.
To sum it up, again, RegiMEN has testosterone boosting potential but there’s no way of knowing if that potential actually delivers. I’m personally betting that it doesn’t but I could be wrong and maybe it might. The estrogen regulation is pretty risky so that’s a fail too. At most, you could get anabolic and sex boosts but because of the prop blends and the overall quality of the formula, I say that’s pretty questionable too.
- Tongkat Ali and Rhodiola Rosea – Sexy ingredients for testosterone. I just wish they were prioritized more.
- Zinc and Magnesium – The mineral counterparts of the above ingredients. Again, I just wish RegiMEN focused more on these testosterone boosters.
- Ecdysteroids and 5-methyl-7-methoxy-isoflavone – Great alternatives if you’re in to bodybuilding but don’t want the risks that come with altering hormones.
- PROP BLENDS – When I buy my supplements, I make sure I know what’s in it and how much of it I’m taking and these prop blends aren’t helping.
- Poor Quality – I see a lot of extracts but no standards, concentrates, or branded ingredients. You trying to be cheap here, RegiMEN?
- Anti-Estrogen Blend – While the idea is good, the execution isn’t. It’s basically a mixed bag of double-edged swords and a syringe to the gonads.
- Weak T-boosts – I mean, if you bill yourself as a testosterone booster, better make sure you prioritize your T-boosting ingredients.
- Reputation – The consumer reviews and ratings on this product are terrible. Which is actually what I expected after analyzing the ingredients so it’s nothing surprising.
- RegiMEN and Vestiage, Inc. – Yup, those are bad things too. Let me explain in more detail…
The hierarchy goes like this: Vestiage, Inc. > RegiMEN > Testosterone Support.
Simply said, Vestiage, Inc. is the company that made RegiMEN and RegiMEN is the brand that made Testosterone Support. Here’s my personal assessment.
Vestiage is supposedly a “healthy aging company” which is why they created the brand RegiMEN which stood to help in making men age graciously. Thus, the “Leave Age Behind” slogan. Sounds pretty good, right?
Here’s the catch. Vestiage was reported to have a capital of $10 million in 2014. The next year, they failed to renew their trademark. If you didn’t realize by now, I’m telling you that’s a red flag. It’s hard to trust a company that collapses after just their first year. And if that’s not enough to deter you, click here. That’s a link to Vestiage’s official website and really, all you’ll get is a blank page. No photos, details, customer support, etc. I mean, $10 million dollars in capital and a blank website. Where’d all that money go?
That’s not the worst. Even if it’s blank, at least Vestiage has (or had?) a website. RegiMEN? Nope. They don’t even have a website. And I mean, in our generation, everything has a website. Cats even have a friggin’ website so why can’t RegiMEN?
The Bottom Line
Obviously, I’m not putting RegiMEN anywhere near my favorite testosterone boosting products. While the formula does seem to have some kind of potential, that’s all there is. No execution whatsoever.
Because you’re reading a review of this product with a label that says to “Leave Age Behind”, I’m assuming that you’re the older guy looking to metaphorically get your youth back and curb the effects of aging. If so, look away. If I’m being honest, this REALLY isn’t worth its cost. Judging from the consumer reviews and the company’s crap reputation, only god knows what kind of side effects this product may lead to. My advise? Read about this other supplement. Compared to most other products, it’s far more powerful, looks a whole lot safer, and the consumer reports are legitimately good.
