The only way to get SLIM is to get BIG?
We’d probably ask them what type of crack they’re smoking, how much it costs, and where can we get it–because, unlike whatever that statement is implying, crack will definitely make you SLIM.
Except here’s the truth: Turns out that getting BIG muscles does help your metabolism CUT down the fat for a SLIMMER, tighter frame. Is that the only way to get SLIM? No. Which is why Troxyphen has mixed T-boosters to get you BIG with fat-burners to get you SLIM… The only problem: Those fat-burners sort of look like crack.
Formulated by TruDERMA, Troxyphen Testogenic [V2] is equal parts testosterone booster & fat burner. The exact quotes on this formula is “Increased T by 313%” and “Increased Fat Loss by 224%” which is just… Come on. Really? Formula notes:
- Test Boosters: Fenugreek & Tribulus top the T-booster list in this formula. Not bad for boosting T, but way better for enhancing sex.
- Fat Burners: Caffeine & Synephrine are the primary fat burners here. For many, these might be too stimulating, but they do get the job done.
- Poor Dosages: The rest of the formula is almost not even worth discussing due to the abysmally poor dosages.

Troxyphen might boost T and it might burn fat.
Key word: Might.
Not that all of the ingredients bad, but we’re already seeing dosage issues & questionable design choices. Allow us to explain:
There’s technically one ingredient in this formula that fully qualifies as a T-booster and it’s Testosurge—a quality branded extract of Fenugreek. Some of the BEST for TEST boosters carry it, because it does have valuable research-backed benefits on “free” T levels.
Aside from Testosurge, the ingredients that we’re also assuming are intended for “T-boosting” are Tribulus Terrestris, Muira Puama, & Saw Palmetto (maybe L-Arginine as well). Of these, you’re probably most familiar with Tribulus, because it’s the most popular herb in T-booster stacks—even though it doesn’t seem to actually boost T in most men. It’s more sex-enhancer than anything.
Ditto for Muira Puama, except this is a women’s herb… so WTF M8? This doesn’t need to be in a testosterone booster. Saw Palmetto is interesting for its DHT blocking ability, which technically does boost T. But we’re wondering if this is at all necessary, considering that DHT is a manlier hormone than T. Then there’s L-Arginine, which is a solid N.O booster, which may indirectly aid T status… Although we have to question the dosage used here.
In fact, we have to question the dosages on everything here, with exception to Fenugreek & Tribulus. All of the dosages suck. 7 mg for L-Arginine? 2 mg for Muira Puama? 1 mg for Saw Palmetto??
Those numbers won’t do nothing for no one, doods.
Troxyphen wants you BIG and SLIM, and it intends to accomplish the latter part with these ingredients:
- Caffeine Anhydrous. You know what this is. It’s definitely a fat-burner, topping our BIG LIST of Fat-Burners. But it’s also caffeine.
- Advantra Z. Controversial Synephrine is the replacement for the now-illegal ephedrine. This stimulant seems much safer for fat loss than ephedrine, but use with caution.
- Black Pepper. Well-researched fat burner in quality branded extract form. Also enhances the overall absorption of this formula, which is groovy.
Overall, not too bad for burning fat. The added energy may indirectly motivate fat loss as well if used for PWO purposes. Just make sure you’re not stacking this T-booster with another caffeinated PWO supp.
We’ll start the analysis with the one ingredient we didn’t discuss: Magnesium Stearate.
Magnesium is an awesome T-booster with definite sports nutritional value, but Magnesium Stearate is not a T-booster. It’s a shitty capsule ingredient that helps the manufacturers speed production, but diminishes the formula’s overall bio-availability.
In essence, it offsets Black Pepper’s increase in the formula’s bio-availability… just a damn shame, Troxyphen.
The inclusion of this ingredient in the Supp Facts plus the criminally low doses on L-Arginine, Muira Puama (which we don’t even like), and Saw Palmetto seem like these manufacturers are trying to pull a quick one on us.
On a positive note, Troxyphen supplies 60 capsules for two daily servings, so you’re getting upwards of 600 mg Fenugreek and 200 mg Tribulus. That’s cool. That’ll boost some T for you. Yet, that still won’t do much for the rest of the ingredients—besides giving you a daily dose of caffeine as well.
All-in-all, Troxyphen qualifies as a caffeinated source of Fenugreek with some sex-enhancing Tribulus goodness & a little synephrine jazz. But we wouldn’t rank this T-booster in line with other ball-dropping male enhancers, nor would we place this in our Best 5 Fat Burner Supplements list.
Alright, sit tight. Because these benefit claims are good:
- Boost Total Testosterone Levels by 313% in 10 Hours
- Increase Fat Loss by 224% in 8 Weeks
- Improve Energy and Performance Levels
Boost total T by 313% in only 10 hours?? Essentially, you take the pill in the morning and by night-time your balls are dragging across the floor. Never mind that this drastic T increase in such a short span of time would probably kill you.
Based on what we’ve seen in the Supp Facts, Troxyphen is nowhere near 313% increased T nor 224% increased fat loss. Improved energy & performance levels? Maybe. Sure. That seems reasonable, considering the caffeine & fenugreek/tribulus. But don’t expect any extreme results with this booster.
Who Takes It?
Cutting Caffeine-Lovers. Not everyone is into having caffeine in their supplements. Especially in their T-booster supplements. Others may not know there’s caffeine in their supps and misinterpret the energy rush as “results.” Don’t fall in that category here: Troxyphen is a mid-to-low range T-booster with a caffeinated jolt of energy.
Any Side Effects?
The reviews are short and vague on their descriptions (“After 3-4 days, I didn’t like the way I felt, so I threw remaining pills in the trash.”), which is common with synephrine-carrying supplements. Some users may feel good from the stimulations. Others may experience nausea, headache, over-excitability, irritation, upset stomach and so on. However, we wouldn’t expect anything more serious than this.
- 2-in-1 Design. Where would we be without experimentation?
- Fenugreek. High-quality branded Fenugreek at that.
- Black Pepper. Increases the overall bioavailability of the formula.
- Poor Dosages. Half of the formula is ineffective fairy dust.
- Mild Side Effects. Symptoms of over-stimulation at play here.
- Magnesium Stearate. Decreases the overall bioavailability of the formula.

Final Word on Troxyphen
For whatever reason, this particular Troxyphen Testogenic [V2] formula seems to be making an exit from the supplement scene. There are only so many places to order the stuff and all sales of the product are quoted as “final.” So if you’d like to try this specific T-boosting fat-burner, now’s the time to do it. Otherwise, we can’t say that we’re really going to miss it.
