Quick Take: The Test X180 formula is generally low dosed but the way I see, it still manages to be an effective formula because of a bunch of high quality ingredients. It affects masculine health mainly with boosts in libido and physical performance as well a bit of kick on testosterone. However, from the customer reviews I’ve read, Force Factor seems to have a terrible reputation. Let’s get into detail further down the review.
- Test X180 looks like an okay formula despite being a product of the controversial Force Factor.
- Advertised to be “for every guy who wants to challenge his declining testosterone and perform at the highest level.”
- Also advertised as a “Premium Free Testosterone Booster”, Test X180 has a lot of top-quality ingredients.
- Has a proprietary blend of 5 potent natural ingredients sharing a meager total dosage of just 400 mg
- Outside of the prop blend, Test X180 has 3 manly vitamins with vitamin D and B6 being pretty good for testosterone
- Price may vary depending on where you buy it. On their website, it’s sold at $70 but on GNC and Amazon, it’s sold much cheaper at $55 and $40 respectively.

Test X180’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Vitamin D – Although their relationship isn’t clearly understood yet, research does show that low levels of this vitamin is linked with low T. Just 200 IU likely won’t do much of anything though.
Vitamin B6 – Similarly, B6 depletion also correlates to low testosterone. The form supplied here could’ve been better though.
Vitamin B12 – Doesn’t seem to have any influence on testosterone and other sex hormones but it is pretty good for sperm.
Growth Enhancement Matrix
- Testofen® – A branded form of Fenugreek standardized for 50% Fenuside™, this herb has been used for libido and performance enhancement but it could also raises levels of “free” testosterone by blocking aromatase and 5-alpha-reductase activity.
- Siberian and Panax Ginseng – Both herbs have adaptogenic properties which may give them the ability to indirectly support levels of testosterone by managing levels of cortisol under times of stress (e.g., intense exercises like bodybuilding). Solely for test though, both aren’t quite reliable.
Siberian Ginseng VS. Panax Ginseng
Despite being both Ginsengs, these two are different plants and their biggest difference lies in their active compounds.
Siberian Ginseng contains eleutherosides which have been known to impact the immune system. According to this article, this herb “was traditionally used to prevent colds and flu and to increase energy, longevity, and vitality”.
Panax Ginseng on the other hand, has ginsenosides as its active ingredient – a class of triterpenoid saponins which according to this study, is an agonist to multiple steroidal receptors. Also stated in the study, “ginsenosides are important natural resources to be developed into new modalities, and may replace steroids in the current regimen to lessen undesirable side effects.”
- Cordyceps – Standardized for 7% cordycepic acid, this is quite potent but cordyceps itself looks pretty dubious. Aside from growing at the back of caterpillars, a study shows that it’s capable of boosting testosterone but it also counterproductively boosts estrogen. If anything, it may be good for regulating sex hormones.
- Tribulus terrestris – Despite being one of the most popularly used ingredients in testosterone boosting supplements, it’s actually not a good testosterone booster. It’s great for libido though.
Test X180 Directions
Starting with this formula’s vitamins, all three are great for male health but only Vitamin D and B6 seem to be capable of positively influencing testosterone with B12 promoting better sperm quality. Unfortunately, both D and B6 are given in low dosages and in the case of Vitamin D, 200 IU isn’t likely to do anything.
Moving on to the meat of Test X180’s formula, the Growth Enhancement Matrix continues this product’s trend of low dosages with just 400 mg divided among 5 ingredients. Thankfully, the quality of the ingredients inside this blend sort of make up for the low total dosage with potent standardized extracts.
With Testofen as this blend’s primary ingredient, the effects you’re likely going to feel are that of Fenugreek’s which is elevated libido, strength, and boosted “free” testosterone. Followed by 2 types of Ginseng with anti-cortisol properties and Cordyceps which holds promise as a sex hormone regulator, these ingredients can help maintain the “free” test that’s already potentially boosted from Testofen.
Last on the Test X180 prop blend is Tribulus Terrestris which, as I’ve said, isn’t really much of a test booster but it complements the libido boosts from Fenugreek quite well. As a whole, Test X180 looks like a well-rounded supplement capable of supporting healthy levels of “free” testosterone, muscle growth, and libido. Although, these effects look to be mild at best because of the formula’s overall low dosage.
Does it Work?
Test x180 by Force Factor looks like it works best for sex but it also seems like it could also work for enhancing athletic prowess such as the strength and mass of your muscles. “Free” test boosts look like it’s prioritized last but it should still be there to a mild degree.
Moreover, my analysis points me towards believing that this supplement is more suited to younger men who don’t necessarily need a lot of boosts in testosterone but still want to enhance their sexy time and bodybuilding experience. Older guys could still benefit from Test X180 too but it would probably serve their needs better if they opted for a more powerful testosterone booster.
- Sex – Young or old, all men want sex.
- Performance boosts – Not too much but you’d probably still be able to feel it. If your goal was to enhance performance to an elite level though, you’d probably want to read this review.
- High Quality ingredients – Not all but most of them are served at top quality forms.
- PROP BLEND – Can anybody please explain to me why it’s so hard to show all the dosages?
- Minimal test boosts – As a testosterone booster, the primary focus doesn’t seem to be actually increasing testosterone.
- Low dosages – From the vitamins to the prop blend, everything here either borders on useless or barely hitting the mark.
THE BIGGEST CON ABOUT TEST X180 IS THEIR REPUTATION
The formula itself actually looks pretty decent. However, the number of negative ratings and customer reviews are overwhelming and this is because Force Factor has been known to scam their customers. Let me explain.
When you decide to visit Force Factor’s page on Test X180, they give you the option to “try a sample”. What this is, is a 14-day trial period where they’re supposed to give you 14 capsules. Don’t do it. It’s a lie. When you sign up for the free sample, they will automatically charge your credit card and ship you the next batch unless you make sure you cancel and they’re most likely going to give you a hard time cancelling, too.
Some customer reviews even reported about not actually getting their supposed shipment despite having already paid for it. Despite looking like an okay formula, it’s very hard to recommend this product given the company’s reputation for money-grabbing tactics.
The Bottom Line
The formula looks fine but fine isn’t enough to earn it a place among my list of the best testosterone boosters. If you wanted to enhance sex and performance though, this supplement could probably be beneficial to you. However, I can’t get my mind off of the scammer reputation. If you still want to take that chance, then hey. That’s on you.
