Quick Take: MuscleTech is no stranger to bodybuilding supplements and one way to build more muscle is by boosting testosterone. MuscleTech’s answer? Vitaligenix T10. This product has some pretty potent ingredients that not only enhances your performance at the bench press, it does so at sex too. Let’s get to the review.
- Vitaligenix T10 is a product of the reliable and popular supplement manufacturer – MuscleTech
- As stated by the label, Vitaligenix T10 is marketed to boost testosterone at the first dose. That’s probably not true but it does seem to work pretty fast.
- Also on the label, Vitaligenix T10 claims to boost bioavailable testosterone by 33.8%. I doubt the formula itself has been tested but most of the ingredients are pretty well-researched.
- Has Fenugreek standardized to 80%. This might actually be the most potent form of Fenugreek I’ve seen in testosterone boosting products.
- Vitaligenix T10 uses Liquid Plasma Cap Technology that supposedly enhances absorption.
- Available to buy online and in retail stores including GNC and Amazon.

Vitaligenix T10’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Zinc – as Gluconate, this form of Zinc is one of the most absorbable forms and is also one of the most expensive. Zinc serves as a raw material for testosterone while also managing testosterone synthesis, release, and even protects against the typical testosterone depletion after a workout .
Fenugreek – Standardized to contain 80% apigenin flavanone glycosides, I think Vitaligenix T10 might have one of the most potent forms of Fenugreek out there. It lowers levels of estrogen and DHT in favor of more “free” test via aromatase and 5-alpha-reductase inhibition. It’s also pretty good for exercise and sex (libido).
Maca – As displayed by this research, Maca is a great natural ingredient for boosting libido or sexual desire. However, the same research also shows that it does so without necessarily altering testosterone.
Tribulus terrestris – Despite being one of the most popular ingredients in today’s testosterone boosting market, Tribulus Terrestris doesn’t actually boost test. But being standardized for 45% saponins? Man, this herb is straight up fire when it comes to sex.
Boron – I think it’s right up there with Zinc among the best minerals for testosterone especially at this highly bioavailable Boron Citrate form. It boosts androgens testosterone and DHT while also lowering levels of estriadol and SHBG.
Broccoli – This cruciferous vegetable supplies Diindolylmethane (DIM) which works by inhibiting aromatase activity leading to lower levels estrogen. However, it may also work against androgens in a seemingly dose-dependent manner.
Olive – According to this rat research, Olive has potential for boosting testosterone but to be honest, it needs a lot more research (human research to be specific) for me to actually say that this is a dependable testosterone booster.
Safed musli – A libido boosting adaptogen that has seen very little research regarding testosterone.
Vitaligenix T10 Directions
MuscleTech suggests two ways to take Vitaligenix T10
- For 10-hour testosterone boost
- Take 2 servings (6 capsules) in a single sitting
- For general testosterone support
- Take 1 serving (3 capsules) twice per day
Which ever way you choose, you end up taking 6 caps or 2 servings per day. Vitaligenix T10 also suggests not to take more than 6 capsules in a time frame of 24 hours.
Again, you are to take 2 servings per day. Therefore, the dosages you see here are multiplied by two. In that sense, the entire Vitaligenix T10 formula looks heavily dosed. In addition to the dosage, the forms they’ve given to some of their ingredients are pretty potent too. Wonderful!
Zinc in itself already boosts testosterone but as a raw material, it also provides solid ground for more testosterone boosting. Fenugreek and Boron are both pretty good testosterone boosters and they actually complement each other somewhat.
Fenugreek lowers DHT (a manlier hormone than testosterone) while Boron brings it back up. Both of them (plus DIM) lower levels of estrogen leading to more “free” testosterone and Boron adds even more bioavailable test by inhibiting SHBG. “Free” testosterone, by the way, is what’s actually being used by our bodies to produce manly characteristics such as high libido and muscle.
Speaking of libido and muscle, Vitaligenix T10 has ingredients that specifically target those aspects of male health as well. Fenugreek alone is great for dealing with both but Vitaligenix T10 also has Tribulus Terrestris and Maca which may not necessarily boost testosterone but they will most certainly make you feel as if they did because you’ll be boiling hot with libido and ready to smash some pumpkins if you catch my drift.
Olive and Safed Musli are pretty good too if they actually work but as of right now, they need more evidence under their belts to prove their worth.
Does it Work?
Yes but probably not as much as MuscleTech markets Vitaligenix T10 to be. See, Vitaligenix T10 claims to boost testosterone at your first dose and in a matter of 10 short hours. I don’t know where they’re getting their research but as far as I’m concerned, this is bullsh*t.
- High Quality – It’s not just about Fenugreek. Zinc, Boron, and Tribulus Terrestris are pretty high quality, too.
- Dosage – 6 capsules for 8 ingredients. Not bad, Muscle Tech.
- Liquid Plasma Cap Technology – Anytime a good supplement makes a move to enhance absorption, it brings the value of the entire stack at least a little bit higher.
- Reputation – Judging from the customer reviews I’ve read, Vitaligenix T10 seems to have an excellent reputation. I haven’t read anything about side effects either.
- No prop blends – Thank God Vitaligenix T10 isn’t hiding any of its dosages.
- Lack of research – Well, most of Vitaligenix T10’s ingredients are actually pretty well researched but a couple of them don’t. I’m talking about Olive and Safed Musli here.
- Pricey – It doesn’t matter if you but it at Amazon or GNC. Vitaligenix T10 carries with a stiff price tag of $191.99.
- Coloring – I mean, come on. It doesn’t matter if the capsule is plain or colorful.
The Bottom Line
Quick tip: the best testosterone boosters give you the most bang for your buck. Therefore, they should be reasonably affordable and down right effective.
I have little doubt in my mind about the effectivity of Vitaligenix T10 but to me, the price is just too damn high. But if you’re an active and rich young man looking to boost testosterone for both sex and muscle, and you don’t have problems with spending about $190 for a supplement, I think Vitaligenix T10 should be on your list of choices.
