TesteroneXL is claimed to be an all-natural nutritional supplement that can dramatically increase your testosterone levels, resulting in accelerated fat loss, increased strength and energy, and boosted mental acuity. On top of this, TesteroneXL is claimed to help:
- Decrease workout fatigue by 35%
- Increase athletic endurance up to 42%
- You look up to 52% more ripped, and
- Provide the ability to build 30% more muscle mass in less than 30 days.
According to the manufacturer, you just need to take one capsule of TesteroneXL twice daily and work out regularly, and you’ll start seeing results in 3 weeks. In fact, TesteroneXL is claimed to be so effective that it “will change your life.”
But is this really the case? In other words, whether you’re looking to replace testosterone lost due to age or just to get a boost at the gym, can you expect TesteroneXL to perform as advertised? Probably not, and here’s why:
What Ingredients Does TesteroneXL Contain? Are They Clinically Proven?
Most importantly, the TesteroneXL website doesn’t provide an ingredients list or product label for the supplement, which is disconcerting considering this is something you’ll be putting in your body. As such, there’s no way to know which ingredients the supplement contains, or if it contains enough of each ingredient to be effective.
With this said, as we outlined in our Do Testosterone Boosters Really Work? article, there are no known pills, whether by prescription or OTC, that can reliably increase testosterone levels. In addition, there is insufficient clinical evidence showing that nearly any ingredients contained in testosterone booster supplements such as TesteroneXL can increase testosterone levels, either.
TesteroneXL’s Advertising Tactics
Perhaps due to the lack of clinical evidence supporting their claims, the TesteroneXL website appears to be designed more to elicit an emotional response than an informed one. As we mentioned in our How Weight Loss Ads Convince You to Buy article, this is often accomplished by placing specific “triggers” in different parts of the website.
For example, when first landing on TesteroneXL’s home page, your eye is immediately drawn to an extremely fit model, making you think, “Hey! I want to look like that!” Then, you find out that TesteroneXL can help “build 30% more muscle mass in less than 30 days,” after which you find out there’s a trial. In other words, the site attempts to “prime” you into making an emotional decision instead of an informed one.
In addition, TesteroneXL’s manufacturer also claims that the supplement can:
- Decrease workout fatigue by 35%
- Increase athletic endurance up to 42%/li>
- You look up to 52% more ripped
However, there’s no mention on the website of where these figures came from or how they were derived. In fact, for all you know, they could be simply made up out of thin air.
Finally, according to the TesteroneXL website, the supplement has been seen on CNBC, FOX News, USA Today, is the #1 workout supplement in the US, and is recommended by professional athletes and bodybuilders. However, we didn’t encounter any third-party verification during our research indicating that TesteroneXL appeared on any of these networks, that any professional athletes use the supplement, or that it’s been voted number one by any organization.
What’s the Consumer Buzz About TesteroneXL?
While TesteroneXL was very new at the time of our research and didn’t have any legitimate online customer reviews, we did encounter numerous affiliate websites posing as customer reviews. However, in many instances, these fake review sites are intended to mislead you into thinking you’re reading about a real customer’s experience, when they’re actually just more sales material.
With this said, we did learn that TesteroneXL appears to be manufactured by Querto Services LP based out of Edinburgh, Scotland, although no additional information is available about the company online.
TesteroneXL Pricing & Refund Policy
TesteroneXL is only available through a 14-day trial, which will initially cost you $4.95 S&H. However, It’s interesting to point out that when choosing your country on the TesteroneXL ordering form, there are no options for either the United States or United Kingdom.
Despite this, according to TesteroneXL’s Shipping page, your trial begins the date your order is placed, and U.S. orders will arrive within 3-7 business days. This means that you’ll likely only have a few days to try the supplement before being required to call the company and cancel your trial.
Once your trial has expired, you’ll be charged $89.95 for the full price of the product and enrolled in the company’s autoship program. As a result, you’ll continued receiving a new bottle of TesteroneXL once every 30 days, and your credit card will be charged $89.95 each time.
Important note: As we’ve referenced many times, including in our All About Autoship Programs article, it’s our opinion that products sold only through free trials and autoship programs are often more about getting as much of your money as possible than they are about providing any kind of real benefits. As such, we’d recommend avoiding them altogether.
With this said, outside of the trial, TesteroneXL comes with a 60-day refund policy, which begins from the date your order is received. Keep in mind though that a full refund only applies to 2 opened bottles, while all others must be unopened and in saleable condition.
In order to initiate the refund process or to cancel your autoship enrollment, you’ll need to contact customer service at 800-381-8791.
Will TesteroneXL Change Your Life?
Chopping to the Point: Considering the fact that we’re not informed about any of its ingredients; that testosterone boosters in general have been shown not to work; and that the supplement is only sold through a free trial, it’s our opinion that TesteroneXL’s high price is far out of line with any benefits you can expect to achieve from using it.
