Vitaligenix T10 Review: Ingredients, Effectiveness, Side Effects
According to the manufacturer, Vitaligenix T10 contains a powerful, clinically researched blend of ingredients that can boost testosterone with the first dose. In fact, we’re told if can quickly raise your testosterone levels within 10 hours!
In order to accomplish this, we’re told you’ll only find the correct, researched dosages of ingredients in Vitaligenix T10, which can provide a 33.8% increase in bioavailable testosterone, along with a decrease in estradiol.
The company tells us that all you have to do is take 2 servings (6 capsules) once daily to experience a 10-hour t-boost, or 1 serving (3 capsules) twice daily for general testosterone support.
Taken together, this is why the manufacturer calls Vitaligenix T10 “the most advanced 10-hour testosterone male vitality formula ever.”
Is this really the case, though? In other words, will Vitaligenix T10 boost your free testosterone levels? Will it help you experience real-world results? And perhaps most importantly, is it worth the money?
Let’s dig in and find out!
What Is Testosterone Important to Your Health
Considered the most important hormone in men, testosterone is primarily produced in the testes, while a small amount is produced by the adrenal glands.
Before we’re born, testosterone is responsible for the development of male sex organs, and later on (such as puberty) for the traditional “manly” traits such as a deep voice, growth of facial and body hair, and more.
Unfortunately, while testosterone is abundant during our youth, after the age of 30 a man’s testosterone levels drop about 1% per year, eventually leading to side effects like reduced muscle mass, decreased libido, moods swings, and more.
Now, not all testosterone is created equal. This is because most testosterone in the body is bound to something known as sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), which helps transport it throughout your blood.
However, once testosterone is bound, it then becomes biologically inactive. In other words, only free testosterone (not bound to SHBG) can exert influence on the body, which is exactly what Vitaligenix T10 claims to increase.
Which Ingredients Does Vitaligenix T10 Contain?
According to the label posted on their website, Vitaligenix T10 contains the following ingredients:
- Zinc (as zinc gluconate) 7.5mg
- InstaTest Matrix 1,015mg
Based on what WebMD tells us about the available clinical evidence, 9-200+ mg per day of zinc is effective for lots of things, including treating the common cold, improving age-related vision loss, addressing ADHD, muscle cramps, weak bones, and more.
Similarly, they list broccoli as “possibly effective” for high cholesterol, as well as olive for reducing the risk of breast cancer and heart disease, decreasing high cholesterol, and reducing high blood pressure.
Note: This is based around olive oil (23-54g per day), not olive extract specifically.
Outside of this, WebMD indicates there isn’t enough clinical evidence to support any of the manufacturer’s claims for the other ingredients found in Vitaligenix T10.
On top of this, even for those ingredients that might provide some benefits, it doesn’t appear that the supplement contains the appropriate dosages.
Now, according to the Vitaligenix website:
“In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study on healthy male subjects, supplementation with a key ingredient in VITALIGENIXT10™ resulted in a 33.8% increase in bioavailable testosterone in just 10 hours.”
Admittedly, this would be fantastic, although the company provides no evidence to support this claim.
Will You Experience Any Side Effects from Vitaligenix T10?
While you probably won’t experience anything worse than mild digestive upset from Vitaligenix T10’s ingredients, if anything at all, WebMD notes that, “There is some concern that doses over 20 mg per day [of boron], the UL for adults, might harm a man’s ability to father a child.”
Olive and tribulus may present mild to moderate interactions with diabetes and/or high blood pressure medications, while fenugreek may interact negatively with anticoagulant medications, as well as with Warfarin. Boron might increase estrogen in the body.
Finally, for some ingredients, such as safed musli, not enough is known by the medical community to fully understand safety and possible side effects.
How Much Does Vitaligenix T10 Cost?
It appears that Vitaligenix T10 was only available through GNC at the time of our research. There, one bottle (180 liquid plasma caps) will cost you $249.99 as a non-member, or $199.99 as a member.
All products sold through GNC come with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. In order to request one, you can visit your nearest GNC retail location or contact customer service at 877-462-4700.
Given this relatively high price (more about this soon), are Vitaligenix T10’s customers finding that the supplement delivers a solid value?
What Can We Learn from Vitaligenix T10’s Reviews?
The only place we found any legitimate online customer feedback for Vitaligenix T10 was on GNC.com, where the supplement had 23 reviews and an average rating of 5 stars.
There, most common compliments appeared to revolve around speedy results, meaningful strength gains (without change to diet or exercise), and increased libido. In fact, there wasn’t a single complaint listed on GNC’s website at the time of our research.
From a company perspective, Vitaligenix T10 is created by MuscleTech, who manufactures a full line of supplements, including HydroxyCut, protein powder, vitamins, and more.
Although there wasn’t a whole lot of customer feedback for Vitaligenix T10 at the time of our research, we’ve reviewed dozens of other testosterone boosting and muscle growth supplements over the years.
In most cases, HighYa readers rate the supplements 2 stars or less, often based on a mix of the following complaints: don’t work as advertised, are priced too high, and less-than-stellar business practices and customer support.
Obviously, since we didn’t test Vitaligenix T10 firsthand, we can’t know if you’ll experience any of the same. But despite its positive reputation on GNC’s website, it remains the most expensive testosterone boosting/muscle growth supplement to date.
Does Vitaligenix T10 Represent a Solid Value?
As you’re probably aware, words like “best” and “solid” are highly personal and can vary depending on dozens of personal factors, none of which we can know for you.
However, we can break everything down to its lowest common denominator: Based on everything we’ve learned so far, WebMD indicates that many of Vitaligenix T10’s claims aren’t supported by clinical evidence—and it’s the most expensive t-boosting supplement we’ve reviewed to date.
In fact, since Vitaligenix T10 seems to share many of the same ingredients as other competitor’s supplements, but is priced at 8X the amount in some cases, it seems that you might be paying more for their liquid plasma delivery system than anything else.
However, based on the wording on the supplement’s website, it appears this technology only provides rapid release once inside the body, but doesn’t improve the efficacy of any of its ingredients.
And it seems you can find similar plasma technology in other GNC-only supplements like Performix SST, but without the high price of Vitaligenix T10.
Bottom line: MuscleTech seems to be a legitimate company, but based on the lack of clinical evidence (according to WebMD) supporting the supplement’s claims, as well as its exceptionally high price, we think you might get more value by speaking with your doctor about low testosterone than ordering a bottle of Vitaligenix T10.
