TestoStorm is claimed to be a premium nutritional supplement that when integrated with an exercise routine, can naturally increase free testosterone levels, build lean muscle, increase your strength and energy levels, improve endurance, increased libido, and even “reinvent your body.”
TestoStorm claims to provide you with effective, proven results using the following ingredients:
- Vitamin B6 10mg
- Zinc 20mg
- Testofen (fenugreek extract, standardized to 50% fenuside) 300mg
- L-Arginine HCL 150mg
- Tribulus Terrestris Extract (standardized to 40% saponins) 50mg
- Rhodiola crenulata (standardized to 3% saldrosides) 20mg
In order to begin using TestoStorm on workout days, the manufacturer recommends taking 1 capsule with breakfast and 1 capsule 30 minutes prior to working out. For non-workout days, the company recommends taking 1 capsule with breakfast and another with lunch.
Nothing says, “I’m a man” like a lean, chiseled physique, energy to spare, and a sky-high libido. And if you’re lacking in any of these departments, the promises made by TestoStorm can be very appealing. But is there any truth behind them? Consider the following:
Do All-Natural Testosterone Boosters Really Work?
As we outlined in our article titled Do Testosterone Boosters Really Work?, many of the ingredients these types of supplements contain have little-to-no clinical evidence showing that they work as advertised. However, nutritional supplements manufacturers can get away with making these unsubstantiated claims because this segment of the industry is largely unregulated, which is why sites like HighYa exist to make you a more informed consumer.
With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at TestoStorm’s ingredients.
TestoStorm Ingredients Breakdown
According to WebMD, there is insufficient clinical evidence within the scientific community showing that vitamin B6, zinc, fenugreek, l-arginine, tribulus terrestris, or rhodiola crenulata can increase free testosterone, libido, or strength in any way, although l-arginine is classified as “possibly effective” for erectile dysfunction.
The Psychology of Getting You to Buy
Because supplements manufacturers often have very little (if any) clinical evidence showing they work as advertised, they’ll often use psychology to close the sale instead of facts, which is something we explained in-depth in our How Weight Loss Ads Convince You to Buy article.
In the instance of TestoStorm, we can see this in action on the product’s landing page, where our eyes are immediately drawn to a model with a chiseled physique in the upper left-hand corner (one of the primary “hot spots” on any web page), which makes us think, “I’d love to look like that.” Then, the company creates a sense of urgency to see if we “qualify” for a free sample of the supplement, and relieves this sense of urgency by giving us the ability to enter our information and to claim our supply.
Is There Any Customer Feedback Regarding TestoStorm?
Overall, TestoStorm appears to be a fairly new product with very few legitimate online customer reviews, outside of fake review websites. However, we were able to locate a several reviews of the supplement through Amazon.com and Bodybuilding.com’s forums, where most gave TestoStorm low marks for failure to work as advertised, as well as a high price that is far out of line with any benefits you can realistically expect to achieve.
On the other hand, the customer reviews on the TestoStorm website appear to be positive, although there isn’t the ability to leave feedback or comment on the supplement’s website, which leads us to believe they may not be legitimate.
TestoStorm is manufactured by FutureDNA based out of Studio City, CA, although the company is not listed with the Better Business Bureau.
TestoStorm Pricing & Refund Policy
TestoStorm is available through 4 purchasing options:
- 1 Bottle: $69
- Buy 2, Get 1 Free: $138
- Buy 3, Get 2 Free: $207
- 14-day trial: Pay $4.99 S&H. After 14 days have passed (beginning from the date your order is placed), you’ll be charged $74.98 for the full price of the bottle, and will be enrolled in the supplement’s autoship program. This means you’ll continue receiving a fresh bottle of TestoStorm every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged $74.98 each time.
According to an image on the TestoStorm website, the supplement comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges, although the product’s Terms & Conditions shows 15 days.
In order to clarify this information, we contacted customer service at 888-723-2387 and encountered a recording each time telling us that we could leave a message, and that someone would get back to us within 72 hours.
Can TestoStorm Make You a Lean, Mean, Masculine Machine?
Chopping to the Point: Although increased free testosterone within your body can certainly lead to increase lean muscle mass and boosted strength and energy, none of the ingredients contained in TestoStorm have been clinically proven to boost testosterone production.
Also, as we’ve mentioned numerous times, including in our article about autoship programs, it’s generally a good rule of thumb to be wary of purchasing products offered through free trials and with subsequent autoship enrollments. This is because in many instances, these types of programs are less about providing convenience than they are about hanging on to as much of your money for as long as possible.
Given all of this, we would recommend not purchasing TestoStorm, and would suggest speaking with your physician about more effective methods of boosting your testosterone, energy, and/or libido.

I never received my order
I ordered the TestoStorm 5 Pack for $207.00. As I'm writing this review, it's 05/28/15 and I still have not yet received my package. I have contacted them numerous times by e-mail and phone and all I got was an answering machine saying to leave a message and someone will get back to me 72 hours. Today when I called them again, it said that the number was no longer in service. I am going to contact my bank to get my refund back.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Scam. They steal your money
These people are a total rip off. I did the 14 day trial and decided to purchase the month supply. They charged my card for the months supply and never shipped the product. It was supposed to be here almost 2 weeks ago. I have been trying to reach them via email and phone and they don't return calls and they don't respond to email. I've requested my money back and still no action has been taken. I've had to cancel my card so that they don't automatically charge me again. Once you place the order, they auto bill you every month until you cancel. You can't cancel because no one responds or answers phones. All you get is "We are experiencing high call volume. Please leave a message and we will get back to you". I've called them a dozen times and emailed 4 or 5 times with no response. I had to have my bank file a claim against them to get my money back. Hopefully they will be successful.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
