Quick Take: There’re a lot of muscle builder/testosterone booster hybrids out there but T-250 isn’t quite like the others. Instead of going the usual route, T-250 uses creatine to infuse a twist of sports nutrition to its formula. The execution isn’t necessarily perfect though but it’s still unique. Let’s head to the review and delve into more detail, shall we?
- A product of Genetic Solutions (BioScience Labs), T 250 looks to be designed as an “All In One Supplement”
- Advertised on its label to be a clinically tested muscle builder but somehow, I highly doubt that.
- Uses a creatine mix which is quite rare to see in testosterone boosters
- Has an ingredient that may be counterproductive to libido
- Has two of the best minerals for testosterone in Zinc and Magnesium
- Available to buy online on Amazon. I couldn’t find it on GNC.

T-250’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Ursolic Acid – This might be capable of inhibiting the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT while also promoting lean muscle. The science is still in its very early stages though.
- Fenugreek – A libido and performance enhancer that boosts “free” testosterone by blocking aromatase and 5-alpha-reductase activity
- Chastetree Berry – Traditional herb used to treat women’s PMS and menopausal. It was also used by monks to suppress their sexual desire which is, uhh, the exact of opposite of what testosterone supplements are supposed to do.
- Zinc – Directly involved in testosterone synthesis and release, Zinc is one of the best natural test boosters out there. This aspartate form isn’t quite as readily absorbed as the citrate version though.
- Boron – Right up there with Zinc as one of the best minerals for testosterone especially in this citrate form. Boosts total and “free” test as well as the more potent androgen DHT.
This blend is basically a mixture of 3 different forms of creatine. Namely, creatine HCL (1), creatine monohydrate (2), and creatine diphosphate sodium salt (3). Creatine is mostly used in PWO supplements for its well-researched ability to boost energy and strength during high intensity exercise (e.g., bodybuilding), allowing you to lift both heavier and harder. It also seems to be capable of limiting the damage your muscles get during exercise which then speeds up recovery.
- Caffeine Anhydrous – Aside from being your morning cup of energy and good vibes, caffeine also helps burn fat by increasing fat oxidation and thermogenesis.
As stated by Genetic Solutions, you’re supposed to take 2 capsules of T250 in the morning with breakfast for testosterone support. For “hardcore muscle building results” however, Genetic Solutions has a very specific cycling/loading guide that you can follow:
- Day 1-7 – 1 capsule, once daily
- Day 7-14 – 2 capsules, once daily
- Day 14-60 – 2 capsules, twice daily
For purposes of this review, let’s just assume you’re somewhere between the 14th and 60th day of taking T-250 and therefore taking a total of 4 capsules per day. During these days, you’ll be taking 2 servings and therefore twice the dosage indicated here which supposedly maximizes the benefits of this supplement. That said, let’s start analyzing how T-250 works.
To simplify the entire T-250 formula, it’s basically their T-Bolic™ Matrix plus creatine and caffeine. The T-Bolic™ Matrix has ingredients like Zinc, Boron, and Fenugreek which are among the better natural testosterone boosters currently being used in the market. As a bonus, Fenugreek also has benefits on athletic and sexual performance. In this regard, T-250 does look pretty decent.
However, the rest of the T-250 formula is quite disappointing. Ursolic Acid is promising for prostate health but with research still at its preliminary stages, it’s also unreliable. To make matters worse for T-250, there’s chastetree berry that, aside from NOT being a supplement for men, it’s also counterproductive to libido.
Creatine is supposedly one the best bodybuilding supplements out there because it’s well-researched, safe, and effective but in T-250, it’s way under dosed that I’m not sure it’ll make any sort of impact. Last on the list is caffeine. A heavy dose of it, too. Sure, it gets your energy, focus, and fat-burning up for a while but as we all know, the caffeine crash is notoriously jittery and personally, I don’t like that.
Does it Work?
In terms of boosting testosterone, T-250 will work as far as Zinc, Boron, and Fenugreek will take it and, uhh, it’s probably not a lot. Although these are some of the better proven supplements in the world of natural testosterone boosting, if this is all T-250 has, it’s nowhere near the level of the elites.
To be fair, creatine and caffeine does add a bit of a PWO twist to the T-250 formula but even this isn’t all that powerful as the creatine mix is under dosed and, to put it bluntly, caffeine is a dirty stimulant. Surely, there are better ways to add pre-workout elements to your products aside from this.
- Cheap – Sold at just under $20 with free shipping on Amazon, this might actually be its best selling point
- Boron Citrate – The best form of one of the best natural testosterone boosters
- Zinc and Fenugreek – Their forms don’t have the same potency as Boron Citrate but they still are pretty good testosterone boosters
- Specific instructions – Genetic Solutions made it pretty clear on how best to reap the maximum benefits of T-250
- Proprietary – Non-transparent formulas are never a good look on any stack
- T-Power™ Matrix – Creatine was supposed to be what sets T-250 apart from most other testosterone boosters but at this dosage? Nah.
- Chastetree Berry – Don’t mess with my libido, T-250!
- Reviews – The Amazon customer reviews are actually pretty good but to me, they’re too good. You know what I mean? The way they’re written is too articulate for your regular customer that it almost seems suspicious.
The Bottom Line
The combination of testosterone boosters and creatine that T-250 uses is an unusual concept that, to me, might actually work well if it was properly executed. However, this innovative formula still needs quite a bit more work. That said, don’t buy T-250 for the creatine because you’ll be left disappointed. For testosterone though, the Zinc, Boron, and Fenugreek combo might be worth a shot. If it doesn’t work for you, then at least you only lost 20 bucks.
