Quick Take: First of all, I’m sure you’ve misread a girl’s signals. Who hasn’t, right? I mean, one minute and she’s flirting like a horny dog and the next, she’s the devil incarnate trying to drag your soul to hell. Next thing you know and you’re in the friendzone. That sucks. That’s how I feel about TestX Core. With multiple sites showing different ingredients, this is just as confusing as a girl’s mixed signals. I’ll explain further in this review.
- Made by Phenom Health, TextX Core probably isn’t as phenomenal a T-booster as the brand’s name
- Their product label has it advertised as a T-booster formulated for sustained energy and muscle stamina
- Available to buy in Amazon (and other online stores) and retail stores. I couldn’t find it in GNC.
- Amazon and TestX Core’s website shows different formulas. What I’m using here is Amazon’s version.
- Tribulus Terrestris Extract standardized to 40% saponins
- Fenugreek standardized to 50% saponins with a 6:1 ratio

TestX Core’s T-Boosters
Zinc Citrate – Big ups to Phenom Health on using this testosterone raw material in its best form. 20 mg is a heavy dose worth noting too.
Fenugreek – I think Fenugreek standardized to 50% saponins is the best form of fenugreek but it’s really not that great of a T-booster. It also, however, acts as an aromatase inhibitor which helps lower estrogen levels so they have that going for them.
Horny Goat Weed Extract – The name says it all. It’s a “weed” for horny goats that apparently makes men feel horny too. It’s a sexual enhancer, not a T-booster.
Maca Extract – Another libido booster right here. It’s a peruvian ginseng used to better the sex life without actually boosting our favorite man hormone.
Korean Ginseng – To be fair, Korean (aka Asian or Panax Ginseng) does have a little bit of potential as a T-booster but I wouldn’t bet on it as one of the best products. It’s still also known as a better “performance enhancer” than it is a T-booster.
Tribulus Terrestris – This is an adaptogenic herb that gets you phenomenal boners without boosting testosterone. Standardized to 40% saponins? That’s going to make for some sleepless nights with the girl you met last saturday at the titty bar.
TestX Core Directions
As seen on Amazon’s page, their advise is to take 2 capsules daily with 250mg of water or as prescribed by your physician.
4 is greater than two.
TestX Core’s formula has 4 sex enhancers and only two bona fide T-boosters and one of those is fenugreek. FENUGREEK! It’s really not that much of a T-booster to begin with and though it does raise levels of “free” T, it also blocks it from converting into DHT which is an even testosterone-ier hormone than testosterone itself. So, sure, you get elevated free testosterone which is a good thing but you lose the manlier effects of DHT.
That Zinc Citrate needs to be recognized though. If there’s anything on this list that can be considered a T-booster, it’s this. As a raw material for producing T, it’s obvious to say that there can be no testosterone without zinc and at a heavy but safe dose of 20 mg, you’re getting a healthy boost of testosterone.
I took a good look at the ingredients and in my honest opinion, I think TestX Core is focused more on SEX than it is in T-boosting. I mean, the first ingredient on the list is HORNY GOAT WEED. If it makes even goats feel sexy, it can get you in the mood too. Partner that with Maca, Ginseng, and Tribulus? Consider your libido boosted.
Keep in mind though that this is me assuming that I’m even analyzing the correct formula. I’m hoping that I am because otherwise, well, there’s really no point to me writing this. The reason why this is the version that I’m reviewing is that the other version is longer BUT doesn’t have a single dosage listed and that’s even worse. Also, I’m assuming that, that was an older version of the formula which needs to updated. Nonetheless, that version of the ingredients list isn’t too great anyway.
TestX Core’s Ingredients: Official Website vs. Amazon
- Saw Palmetto
- Panax Ginseng Root Extract
- Tongkat Ali
- Vitamin B6
Does it Work?
Maybe. I have 2 reasons.
- With Zinc here given at a heavy dose, TestX Core does show at least some potential in raising T levels. Add in the estrogen blocking, testosterone freeing Fenugreek and this supplement may actually get the job done. But will the T-boosting they provide be exemplary? Probably not. I personally wouldn’t put this on my list of the best for test.
- I simply don’t even know if I’m reviewing the right formula.
- Zinc – TestX Core supposedly being a T-boosting stack, seeing Zinc is always a good thing. It’s an ingredient used by one of the most potent T-boosters in the market.
- Fenugreek – Not that good of a T-booster but seeing as how the rest of the ingredients aren’t even for testosterone, I’m going to give it a nod here.
- Quality Ingredients – I may have said a few bad things about the it but credit needs to be given where credit is due. They may not be T-boosters but these natural ingredients do come in very good forms.
- No Side Effects – Given that there aren’t any controversial ingredients and nothing too highly dosed, this is relatively safe.
- Sex – We’re all after testosterone here but you have to admit – there’s really nothing wrong in getting more sex.
- Unreliable sources – Anytime you get two different versions of ingredients from the official website and where it is sold, it raises more eyebrows than it does thumbs.
- Needs more T-boosters – Relying solely on Zinc and sub-par Fenugreek, TestX Core just comes as weak in the T-boosting game.
- Dosage – Lack of ingredients and insufficient dosage on some ingredients is just bad news.
- Reputation – The high number of negative customer reviews on this had me scratching my head. With a heavy list of “feel-good” ingredients, this is actually surprising.
The Bottom Line
Like I said, I’m not even sure if I’m reviewing the right formula here. However, if I am, it still looks more like a supplement taken before shooting a porno. The Zinc and Fenugreek combo might boost T levels but the rise probably won’t be anything spectacular. If you’re looking to get your T boosted as much as bodybuilding superstars do, then this probably isn’t for you. But if what you’re looking for is something to bring the party under your jeans, then by no means am I going to stop you from buying this. It looks like that’s what it’s meant for anyway. Granted, there are a lot of cheaper supplements for that same benefit.
