Quick Take: Do you remember how good the Chicago Bulls were back when they had MJ, Pippen, and Rodman? The Nugenix product line of T-boosters is somewhat like that (Keyword: somewhat). The potent Nugenix UT being the team’s primary superstar Michael Jordan, Nugenix PM being Scotty Pippen carrying the team’s T-boosting load while MJ rests, and.. well.. Let’s just say Nugenix Estro Regulator isn’t exactly Dennis Rodman. I will explain why in this review.
- Manufactured by the reliable brand Nugenix, Nugenix Estro Regulator comes into the T-boosting scene with pretty high expectations.
- The label has this product advertised as a “powerful anti-aromatase modulator”
- According to their website, Nugenix Estro Regulator can be stacked with other Nugenix T-boosters to maximize results. (You get my Chicago Bulls comparison now? Bulls Dynasty, anyone?)
- Available to buy online and in retail stores including Amazon and GNC
- Polygonum cuspidatum Extract with 50% Trans-Resveratrol. The key part of this is resveratrol.
- Straight-up no T-boosting properties.
- Questionable choice of ingredients.

Nugenix Estro Regulator’s T-Boosters
None. As in Z-E-R-O. None of those 4 ingredients on the list are going to provide any kind of boost in testosterone. Which, to be fair, isn’t quite surprising. Nugenix Estro Regulator isn’t advertised in any way to be a T-booster. It is however, said to be a “powerful anti-aromatase modulator”. Let’s move on to the next part of the review to find out if that claim stands true.
This part may otherwise be labeled as Nugenix Estro Regulator’s Estrogen Regulators. Nothing original or catchy but it is what it is.
Vitamin E – I’m not all that surprised that it’s here but I also do find this addition very confusing (does that even make sense?). It’s probably here because of claims that it helps with strength & athletic performance but researches have tremendously been focused on FEMALE health.
Chrysin – While this does seem like it promotes testosterone biosynthesis, it’s not readily absorbed by our body and is only effective if injected directly into the marbles.
Polygonum cuspidatum Extract (Root) (50% Trans-Resveratrol) – This sounds really fancy but the key part is only the part where it says Resveratrol. I have my doubts on the estrogen regulating capabilities of this one and studies suggest that it has no effect on T and DHT.
Did you know? Aromatase is one of the enyzmes responsible for an important step in the biosynthesis of estrogens. To be a little bit more specific, aromatase is what converts androgens such as testosterone and DHT into estrogens. This is exactly why Aromatase Inhibitors (AI) are so important in the world of T-boosting. By inhibiting Aromatase, you effectively stop testosterone from becoming estrogen. Quick Trivia: AI’s are also used in treating man-boobs (gynecomastia).
Nugenix Estro Regulator Directions
Take 2 capsules (1 serving) in the morning with water.
Nugenix UT is a high-quality, top-notch, potent T-booster with generally good customer reviews. Nugenix PM isn’t too shabby coming off as back-up to Nugenix UT. So when I saw Nugenix Estro Regulator’s label boasting about how it is a powerful anti-aromatase modulator, I was thinking that these products are going to be one hell of a trio. Nugenix UT handling the biz in T-boosting, Nugenix PM restores lost T and focuses on recovery while you sleep, and Nugenix Estro Regulator has the hormonal balance covered. This, in theory, seems like a pretty good idea.
However, Nugenix Estro Regulator seems more like a step back than it is a step forward. To me, the choice of ingredients used in this formula didn’t seem like it was well thought of. You see, while Vitamin E MIGHT help regulate estrogen and boost muscle performance, there are studies that prove otherwise.
Don’t even get me started on Chrysin. Yes, it does show promise in testosterone biosynthesis but do you really want to inject Nugenix Estro Regulator directly into your testicles? No? I thought so. Orally taken, it doesn’t do a thing for testosterone nor does it help regulate estrogen.
Resveratrol. The anti-estrogen properties on this is questionable but at this point, questionable seems like a good thing. At least compared to Vitamin E and Chrysin. I have my fingers crossed that this is going to actually work but even if it doesn’t, it deserves props in being a powerful anti-oxidant and having plenty of anti-inflammatory benefits. If it doesn’t do anything for T or estrogen, at least it’s healthy.
Nugenix’s website has DIM as one of the “key super ingredients” in Nugenix Estro Regulator. While I disagree about the super ingredient part, it deserves credit in that it is a natural aromatase inhibitor. If there’s anything in this formula that actually helps regulate estrogen levels, it’s DIM. But as I said, there’s a scientific research suggesting it to be detrimental to male health. I’d still stay away from this ingredient if I were you.
If there’s anything good to be said about Nugenix Estro Regulator’s ingredients, it’s that they aren’t under-dosed so you don’t have to worry about taking a placebo. Also, Polygonum Cuspidatum Extract has some high quality Resveratrol and seeing as though resveratrol is one of the few bright spots on this supplement, this is very worth noting.
Does it Work?
To be very honest, I have no idea. Maybe it does or maybe it doesn’t. Frankly, I don’t think anyone knows either. But given that the dosages seem adequate and that there’s DIM and Resveratrol in the formula, it probably does. If it does work, it’s a nice complementary addition to stack with Nugenix UT and Nugenix PM. However, if taken alone, I wouldn’t bet on it doing anything beneficial.
- High quality Resveratrol – It’s a powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory with possible estrogen inhibition.
- DIM – Being an aromatase inhibitor, it’s the key ingredient to this supplement regulating estrogen.
- Adequate dose – If it works, it’ll be thanks to the 2 ingredients above and their dosages.
- Safe – There are no reported major side effects.
- Questionable choices – To be quite honest, all of them are questionable. Vitamin E and Chrysin most especially.
- Expensive – I personally wouldn’t spend 50$ on something I’m not too sure will work.
- No T-boosts and questionable estrogen regulation – Best stacked with other bona fide T-boosters, I understand this not having any T-boosters but being an estrogen regulator and not being sure about the ingredients is a thumbs down for me.
The Bottom Line
If I had to compare Nugenix Estro Regulator to other Nugenix products, I’d say this is a huge drawback to the Nugenix name. However, do take note that this product is advertised to work best if paired with those other Nugenix T-boosters. Like how Dennis Rodman won championships with 2 other superstars, it’s probably for the best if you paired this with other potent T-boosters like Nugenix UT and Nugenix PM. In that sense, even if you don’t get the estrogen regulating effects of Nugenix Estro Regulator, at least you get the T-boosting properties of the other two. It’s essentialy a supplement to the those other supplements.
