The problem with owning a gym membership is that the gym uses up time and money that could be better spent at the strip club. Or at least that seems to be a complaint held by Testosterone Furnace.
Testosterone Furnace does a classic supplement switcheroo: advertises itself as an anabolic testosterone booster, yet supplies only a hefty load of libido boosting, sex enhancing, dangle wrangling aphrodisiac herbs. The likes of which will more likely drive you to a strip club than a gym, as we mentioned.
Not that there’s no ergogenic value to these ingredients, but …it’s still not quite what you’re paying for. Unless we have you and your intentions all wrong, in which case allow us to get to know you better as we read the Testosterone Furnace review:
About Testosterone Furnace
Manufactured by Health Beauty Supplements (which is by HB&S Solutions, or something), Testosterone Furnace is a natural muscle-enhancing testosterone booster that neither boosts testosterone nor muscle, but will get you nice and horny. Formula notes:
- Tribulus: Sitting on a large 750 mg, Tribulus Terrestris leaves little room for the actual testosterone boosters in this supplement.
- Zinc: One of the actual testosterone booster, and a prime testosterone booster at that. Zinc sits next to Magnesium, nearly hitting the ZMA mar.
- Unoriginal: We’ll dive further into this in the analysis, but essentially two other supplements sell this exact same formula for a slightly better bargain.

Testosterone Furnace burns all of its effort on one ingredient: Tribulus.
Testosterone Furnace is an interesting name: does it imply to burn testosterone levels (which is a bad thing) or …I don’t know, cook us up some testosterone? Regardless, let’s check out the mineral section on this bad boy:
- Magnesium Oxide – Partially fulfills the ZMA angle with the next ingredient (only thing missing is B6). Magnesium has been associated with free test activity.
- Zinc Oxide – Our favorite man mineral, sitting at the number two spot on our BIG List of T-Boosters for its direct role in testosterone synthesis.
Not a bad pair of minerals. But, unfortunately, those two ingredients seem to be the upshot of this formula, at least with regards to testosterone boosting, as there isn’t much of that with the rest of this formula:
Testosterone Furnace Ingredients
Tribulus Terrestris – 750 mg makes this by far the heaviest dosed ingredient in Testosterone Furnace. Great for enhancing sex and libido, but what about testosterone? Trib talks the talk but can’t walk the walk when it comes to male hormones.
Chrysin – This ingredient, on the other hand, can boost testosterone …that is if you’re willing to inject it directly into your nuts. The oral bioavailability on this sucker is so low that it’s practically worthless in this format.
Horny Goat Weed P.E. – Similar to Trib, Horny Goat Weed is great for sexual performance but does not work for testosterone — however, it may mimic testosterone, potentially promoting the secondary anabolic effects of test. You’ll need much more than 50 mg, though, for that to happen.
Longjack – Eurycoma longifolia, or Longjack, helps to naturally balance the testosterone to cortisol (stress hormone) ratio, establishing a more anabolic, muscle building environment in the male body.
Saw Palmetto Berries – Believed to inhibit 5-alpha reductase, the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to DHT, potentially protecting the prostate from excess testosterone levels.
Hawthorn Berries – Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant botanical, potentially supporting muscle gains and testosterone status — although, this is almost entirely speculative.
Cissus Quadrangularis – Traditionally used among bodybuilding circles for its bone and joint support. Because, you see, here’s the thing: major muscle mass may look good, but it pulls on the joints. And that hurts. And, frankly, we may look big and muscly and good …but we still hurt just like the rest of you.
Testosterone Furnace shares the same exact formula as Pro Test Boost, which shares the same exact formula as BioScience Nutrition TESTOBOOST, which shares the same exact formula as God knows how many other so-called “testosterone booster” supplements out there.
And when we say “the same exact formula,” we mean: THE SAME EXACT FORMULA.
With exception to the Other Ingredients, these three supplements use the same minerals, the same botanicals, the same compounds, all supplied at the same low dosages (except for Tribulus), in the same weak, powdery formats.
So what’s the deal here? Because it’s not like this is a huge proprietary testosterone boosting secret let loose that everyone’s trying to get a piece of: Most of the ingredients do nothing for test.
Our hunch: it’s a cheap formula. It sits on a large, yet cheap supply of Tribulus Terrestris — enough to stoke the manly feel-goods to make you feel like the supplement is working without having to actually boost any testosterone or build any muscle or strength.
Perhaps, to some degree, the Zinc and Magnesium may increase your testosterone levels, depending on your initial mineral levels. But not quite to the effective Best for Test levels as suggested by Testosterone Furnace’s marketing.
Testosterone Furnace Benefits
Testosterone Furnace promises to support:
- LEAN MUSCLE
— in addition to “ROCK HARD SEXUAL PERFORMANCE” to take care of “The One Muscle You Need The Most.” So, the jig is up with these guys. Testosterone Furnace focuses on sexual performance first, if not entirely. Don’t expect actual testosterone boosts with this one — just massive bone daddies.
Who Takes It?
Bone Daddies – i.e., men who have only one thing on their mind. That thing that predominantly anti-male groups claim that all men always have on their minds. The men that that made-up statistic actually applies to may enjoy Testosterone Furnace.
Any Side Effects?
None reported. And this applies to all supplements that share this formula: this list of ingredients at these dosages seem to unanimously come with positive Amazon customer reviews, at least with regards to exercise performance. Nothing in the formula shoots up RED flags to us.

Final Word on Testosterone Furnace
If you like this formula and you absolutely must have it, then don’t buy Testosterone Furnace. Go for either Pro Test Boost or TESTO BOOST. (TESTO BOOST seems to be the cheaper option.) There’s really no major reasons to buy any of them, but, hey. There’s a clearly a reason several manufacturers are selling this exact formula in 2017, so we have to imagine it must be doing something right, right?
