Quick Take: Our review today is about a testosterone booster that as the title states, has all the right ingredients. With that, you should be expecting a considerable amount of manly benefits, right? Sure. However, compared to other products, Triandrobol Test has me overwhelmed on the massive dosage it gave to two of the most popular herbs in natural T boosting. Is this strategy innovative? Or is it down right counterproductive? Let’s find out together.
- Triandrobol Test is a product of BodyScience under their Alpha Series label that, as they say, is designed and formulated to boost bioavailable testosterone.
- This testosterone boosting stack, as BodyScience says, has the highest amounts of Tribulus Terrestris and Protodioscin available in the market. That’s a bold claim to make but with an extremely heavy dose of 80,000 mg and 640 mg respectively, that may not be false advertising.
- Tribulus Terrestris isn’t the only herb here with an extraordinarily high dosage. Served at another extreme dosage of 18 g (18,000 mg) is Fenugreek.
- Triandrobol doesn’t really talk about it much in their marketing but this stack also does have the legendary ZMA trio and the powerful DAA.
- BodyScience says that Tribulus Terrestris is considered a banned substance that may lead to a positive drug test. I checked the AIS (Australian Institute of Sports) website and yes, Tribulus Terrestris (along with other testosterone boosters) are placed under Group D which means athletes are not allowed to take it. This bothers me but more on this later.
- Available to buy online and in retail stores including Amazon but it’s currently out of stock. GNC also doesn’t have this supplement.

Triandrobol Test’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Tribul Terrestris – Triandrobol Test serves extracts of Tribulus Terrestris from both the fruit and the root. Combining for a heavy dose of 80 g, these extracts are also labeled to contain an also heavy dose of 640 mg of Protodioscin – this plant’s active compound which is largely responsible for the libido enhancing effects attributed to Tribulus Terrestris. This herb achieves this feat by increasing androgen receptor sensitivity which according to this research, goes up by 58% in rats.
Fenugreek – This herb, similar to T. Terrestris, also has steroidal saponins which include Protodioscin. From that, you can expect Fenugreek to enhance libido, too. It also enhances physical performance and “free” testosterone by inhibiting aromatase and 5-alpha-reductase activity which leads to lower levels of estrogen and DHT.
Horny Goat Weed – There’s really not much to explain. As the name suggests, it makes goats horny but it also works for humans. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it boosts testosterone. Instead, it mimics the effects of T. Given that this leaf isn’t supplied in a standardized form of its active compound (Icariin), this 50 mg dose looks too low to be effective.
Aspartic Acid – This amino acid has two enantiomers. One of which is D-Aspartic Acid (DAA) and according to this research, it’s able to boost testosterone by 42% in just 12 days. That’s a lot of boost in just a short amount of time. However, compared to the 3.12 g dose used in the study, the meager 400 mg supplied here has me questioning if it even works.
Boron – Given here as Borax which contains 2.30 mg of Boron, this mineral is one of the best there is for natural boosts in testosterone. It increases both total and “free” test but unlike Fenugreek, it does so without compromising DHT. It enhances “free” T by inhibiting the testosterone-binding effects of SHBG.
Vitamin K2 – According to a couple of studies, Vitamin K was able was to increase levels of testosterone in both healthy and Vitamin K depleted mice. Take note: mice. Although these studies do admittedly look promising in terms of Vitamin K boosting test, it’s infamously known for its lack of human clinical trials. Regardless, This K2 form given as Menaquinone 7 (MK-7) is the most bioavailable form of this vitamin and the 45 mg dose looks adequate.
Zinc – Given as Zinc Oxide, this form is the cheapest yet also among the most poorly absorbed versions of Zinc. Thankfully though, this dose of over 30 mg looks heavy. As a testosterone booster, this mineral is among the best (maybe even better than Boron) because it’s a resource needed in the production and release of test. It also maintains T levels after a workout which is pretty essential with regards to bodybuilding and muscle growth.
Magnesium – Similar to Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Oxide is also the cheapest, most used, but unfortunately among the most poorly absorbed forms. Also similar to how Zinc is in this stack, Magnesium’s heavy 742 mg dosage might be enough to make up for the poor bioavailability. This mineral inhibits SHBG for more “free” testosterone and also reduces oxidative stress in favor of maintaining healthy levels of T.
Vitamin B6 – Studies have shown that Vitamin B6 depletion lead to lower levels of testosterone. With healthy levels of Vitamin B6 however, supplementation didn’t seem to create any significant change in levels our favorite manly hormone. These two results suggest that Vitamin B6 is essential to maintaining healthy levels of test as compared to actually pushing it beyond normal levels. Served as Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, it’s also not in its best form but again, the dosage seems fine.
Triandrobol Test Directions
Triandrobol suggests taking 2 tablets (2 servings) daily or as instructed by your doctor. For optimal results, cycle “on” for 8 weeks and cycle “off” for 1 week.
Okay, let’s start with what I think are the most controversial (or innovative?) ingredients in this stack: Tribulus Terrestris and Fenugreek. In a nutshell, Tribulus Terrestris, even though it’s marketed as a performance enhancer and a testosterone booster, IT IS NOT. What this falsely marketed herb does right though, is sex.
With Fenugreek, it’s actually pretty good. It does the things that Tribulus can’t which is enhance athleticism and “free” testosterone. Combined, these two get you a whole lot of libido, some “free” test, and a dash of muscle gains. This is good. However, here’s the problem with these two herbs.
Their dosage. Unlike other supplements with issues on low dose, Triandrobol probably has too much. Now, I might be overreacting because both of these herbs are dubbed as safe and natural ingredients but honestly, I’ve never seen a study nor another test booster use this much and that scares me. With 80,000 mg and 18,000 mg for Tribulus and Fenugreek respectively, I see three potential results this heavy dose might lead to.
- Unbelievable and overwhelming benefits
- Apocalyptic risk for side effects
I can’t say for sure which of these three this stack will lead to but I’m sincerely hoping it’s not #2. I’d take nothing over harming my health any day of the week.
Next, we have Horny Goat weed and DAA. There’s a lot of good about these two but for this particular product, I’m skipping it. Why? Because these dosages are sadly too low to make any impact. Boron on the other, is also on the low end of the dosage scale but given that it typically doesn’t need a lot to be effective, it might still work. Vitamin K2 looks promising but the lack of research has me doubting its benefits on humans.
Moving on. We’ve got the legendary Trio of Zinc, Magnesium, and Vitamin B6. Combined, these three are singly called ZMA and trust me. It works. It can boost testosterone, bolster muscle strength and bulk, and it also supports recovery. Those three are some of the most important factors in bodybuilding. However, Triandrobol Test doesn’t use the best forms. Admittedly though, the original blend by BALCO labs also doesn’t but Triandrobol Test has worse. The dosage looks solid though so I think it should still do fine.
Does it Work?
With fingers crossed on Tribulus Terrestris, Fenugreek, Boron, Vitamin K2, and ZMA, I do believe Triandrobol Test works but don’t expect anything big when it comes to testosterone.
Tribulus and Fenugreek, being this product’s main ingredients, should give you a better gym and bedroom experience coupled with boosts in “free” testosterone. I just hope they don’t bring about any nasty side effects.
With Boron, Vitamin K2, and ZMA, I’m just hoping that their dosages or forms still allow them to contribute to this formula’s overall effectiveness. If they do, then you have yourself a decent bodybuilding and testosterone booster. If it doesn’t, then the entire formula is simply weak.
- ZMA – Anytime I see a supplement with an adequately dosed (despite the poor forms) ZMA, I see something good.
- Sex – One word. Protodioscin.
- No side effects – Let me be clear on this one. There might be risk of side effects because of the extreme dosages given to Tribulus and Fenugreek but given that they are technically safe, I might also just be overthinking. If it’s any consolation, I didn’t find any verified customer reviews. That’s not a good sign but on the bright side, that also means that there isn’t anyone reporting any serious side effects.
- Questionable dosage – I’m repeating myself. I know. But I just can’t wrap my head around 80g and 18g of Trib and Fenugreek.
- Lack of quality – The only ingredients here with standards and brands are T. Terrestris and Borax. The rest are just plain.
- DAA – This would’ve been their most powerful testosterone booster. Major missed opportunity right there.
- Reputation – There are no written reviews but there are a few users who spared a minute to contribute to the ratings of this stack. From the small sample size I’ve seen, Triandrobol Test looks to have fairly have a bad reputation with its consumers.
- Banned (?) – The question mark isn’t a typo. I’m just confused. Let me explain.
According to BodyScience, “Tribulus terrestris and other testosterone boosters are classified as Group D by the AIS” which means that it might trigger a positive drug test. This also means that it is banned and is therefore illegal to use by athletes.
I checked the AIS website, and true enough, T.Terrestris is right there under Group D. However, AIS also provided a link to WADA’s website saying that “the sub-categories are hyperlinked to WADA list to place responsibility on athlete to check for banned substances”. And I did check that website and even downloaded a copy of their Prohibited List. Upon inspection, I found no signs of Tribulus Terrestris being a banned substance.
Also, an article says that “T. terrestris did not alter the urinary T/E ratio and would not place an athlete at risk of testing positive based on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s urinary T/E ratio limit of 4:1” which to me, is understandable considering that Tribulus doesn’t even boost T.
The Bottom Line
Overall, Tirandrobol Test is a product with seemingly great ingredient choices but with weak execution. In my opinion, the gargantuan dose that BodyScience gave Tribulus and Fenugreek could’ve been shared to the other proven testosterone boosters in this formula such as Boron and DAA. Aside from making the entire stack so much more powerful, it also would’ve lowered the speculations on possible side effects.
Also, the budget they spent on these two herbs could’ve also been split into getting better quality Zinc, Magnesium, and Vitamin B6. That also would’ve made Triandrobol Testo so much more potent.
If you want to try this product though, I am in no position to stop you. However, I do have a list of the best testosterone boosters that I’ve come across in my time writing reviews. These are so much safer and so much more efficient and powerful. You might want to check that out before you order a bottle of Triandrobol Test.
