About Chamonix T-Gen
Chamonix T-Gen is a dietary supplement that claims to naturally increase free testosterone levels in your body by using ingredients scientifically shown to improve libido, support healthy muscle mass, and promote a healthy prostate. Because of these benefits, the manufacturer even goes so far as to claim that Chamonix T-Gen is a “natural solution to restore that youthful feeling” and that it can help you reclaim your zest for life.
In order to accomplish this, Chamonix T-Gen claims to include Testofen, a proprietary formulation derived from fenugreek, as well as sitosterols to help support prostate health. A full list of ingredients includes:
- Testofen/Fenugreek Seed 33:1 Extract 300mg
- Phytosterols (40% Beta Sitosterol) 100mg
- Selenium 90mcg
- Pine Bark Extract 60mg – Claimed to increase nitric oxide levels in blood, which may help improve circulation.
- Zinc 15mg
Chamonix T-Gen Pricing & Refund Policy
2 bottles of Chamonix T-Gen (60 capsules per bottle), in addition to 2 bottles of Nitroboost (contains arginine and other antioxidants, which may help dilate blood vessels and improve blood flow), are priced at $139.90 plus $8.95 S&H, bringing your total to $148.85.
Important note: When checking out, a drop down menu above the order form asks you to “Select Quantity.” While it might appear that this references the number of bottles you’d like, it actually refers to the number of 2-for-2 orders you’d like. In other words, if you choose “3” from the menu, you’ll pay $446.55 ($148.85 X 3).
After placing your order, you’ll also be enrolled in the company’s Preferred Customer Program (e.g. autoship program), which means you’ll continue receiving a 2-month supply of T-Gen once every 60 days, and your credit card will be charged $148.85 each time until you call to cancel.
Chamonix T-Gen comes with a 60-day refund policy, less S&H charges and a 9% restocking fee. However, keep in mind that this refund policy only applies to your first order, as all products delivered under the autoship program are eligible for merchandise exchanges only.
In order to cancel your autoship enrollment or to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 800-754-6211 between 9a and 6p, M-F to obtain an RMA number.
Can You Realistically Expect Chamonix T-Gen to Boost Free Testosterone?
If you suffer from symptoms of low testosterone, including reduced libido or decreased muscle mass, can Chamonix T-Gen help turn things around? And if so, is it worth the price? Consider the following:
Are T-Gen’s Ingredients Backed by Science?
As we mentioned in our Do Testosterone Supplements Really Work? article, by and large, most (if not all) of the ingredients found testosterone supplements have insufficient evidence showing they work as advertised.
With this said, according to the T-Gen website, “Results [for claims made on the website] were observed in an 8 week clinical trial along with resistance training.” However, it’s important to note that this study references only Testofen, not T-Gen itself. Equally important is that the study was conducted by Gencor, Testofen’s manufacturer. And as Diet Spotlight notes, “When a company lab does the research, the results will always be positive.” Outside of this, there are no third-party clinical trials that show Testofen is effective for boosting free testosterone levels.
Regarding sitosterols, the Chamonix T-Gen website references this clinical trial showing that prostate enlargement decreased. However, as noted in both the trial and on WebMD, this study only references difficulty with urination, not with anything related to sexual performance. In addition, selenium, pine bark extract, and zinc have insufficient evidence showing they can assist with low testosterone levels or sexual dysfunction.
What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About Chamonix T-Gen?
Although the Chamonix T-Gen URL was first registered in October 2011, there are essentially zero online customer reviews related to the supplement. However, as a company, Chamonix holds a B rating with the Better Business Bureau based on 21 complaints (as of 10/28/14), most of which appear to reference failure to work and difficulties cancelling autoship enrollments/processing refunds.
In fact, among HighYa reader reviews for other testosterone boosters, failure to work and difficulties with customer service are the number one complaints as well.
Considering Chamonix T-Gen’s very high price, lack of clinical evidence showing that it works, as well as the fact that most testosterone supplements have a reputation for not working, we’d recommend consulting with your physician about a PSA exam before purchasing any type of supplement.
