Nothing says step off, women like a supplement plastered with Mars symbols.
To Global Healing Center’s credit, there is a Female Fuzion option as well.
But that’s not the focus of this review. We’re here solely to take a look at Androtrex®, the liquid testosterone booster — scratch that — the liquid hormone balancer supplement by Global Healing Center, the company starring Dr. Edward F. Group III (essentially that guy on trending Facebook videos who we’re all waiting to see if he’s to become the next Dr. Oz or not).
Based on outward appearances, this product looks decent. But we’ll need to dive into the contents of Androtrex to get a better a sense of what the F is really going on here.
Manufactured by Global Healing Center, Androtrex is a liquid Male Vitality Spagyrex® Formula designed to support “Normal Hormone Balance.” While it doesn’t pack any of the big-time testosterone boosters, Androtrex fits in an impressive stack of male enhancing botanicals. Formula notes:
- Tribulus and Friends: The leading ingredient is Tribulus, which is slightly disappointing, followed by an herbal spectrum of physical, sexual, athletic enhancers.
- Proprietary Blend: Androtrex hides its formula in a proprietary blend that’s purportedly formulated via a proprietary process. Secrets, secrets are no fun…
- Spagyrex History: The proprietary Spagyrex process was apparently inspired by a 16th century alchemist …and that’s all we know. I guess I’m impressed, or something.

Androtrex shoots for all natural male vitality, opting for “hormone balance” over big-time hormone boosts.
If the Mars symbols on Androtrex’s bottle are any indication, this is a hormone balancing supplement designed specifically for men. Not quite for the big, steroidal men, but the well-balanced, athletic types — or at least men aiming for balance.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Let’s first check out the 2oz tools Androtrex uses for the job in the product’s no caps, no powder proprietary blend.
Altogether we’re looking at nine ingredients here, all of which benefit male health one way or another. Unfortunately, due to the proprietary status of Androtrex’s Male Vitality Spagyrex® Formula, we can’t know for sure the individual dosage of each ingredient. But, from highest to lowest dosed, the ingredients here are:
Tribulus Terrestris – Perhaps liquid Trib can get the job done on testosterone et al, because standard Tribulus terrestris doesn’t seem to do anything for male hormones. Androtrex doesn’t seem to use a standardized Trib extract, opting instead for the plain stuff, which may assist sex but not test.
Tongkat Ali – Eurycoma longifolia packs more of a hormonal punch than Trib, boosting both libido and the testosterone to cortisol (stress hormone) ratio. Theoretically, this may optimize an inner anabolic muscle building bio-system.
Ashwagandha – This Ayurvedic adaptogen is great for enhancing strength and nootropic relaxation, with the potential upside of increasing testosterone expression as well — although this only seems to be the case with particular Ashwagandha extracts.
Maca – Perhaps the ultimate feel-good herb for men, Maca has been traditionally used to enhance physical and sexual performance …but it does nothing substantial for male hormones.
Avena Sativa – Oat straw extract enhances acute cognitive function while also amplifying circulation via N.O. boosts, which may have a positive effect on testosterone expression but only marginally.
Suma – Also known as Pfaffia Paniculata or Brazilian Ginseng. Viewed as a powerful adaptogen with potent ergogenic potential for bodybuilders and athletes. Great addition for athletic and sexual enhancement.
Catuaba Bark – Boosts libido and mood, potentially with a nootropic cognitive enhancing edge. Similar in effect to the next ingredient.
Muira Puama – Despite a lack of clinical human trials, Muira is believed to reliably enhance sexual and cognitive performance. Although a hormonal balance remains a question mark.
Fulvic Acid – Extracted from Shilajit, a nutrient dense tar-like substance that grows on rocks, fulvic acid may improve various measures of male health, including testosterone, nutrient balance, and muscle stamina.
The above ingredients are suspended in a completely Kosher vegetable glycerin and purified water. Clean liquid, baby.
In Global Healing Center’s “A Brief History of the Invention of Androtrex,” the manufacturers ascribe the creation of Androtrex to the combination of Dr. Edward F. Group III’s research (perhaps best known for his Facebook-trendy health videos) and the registered Spagyrex process — which is a riff off of the 16-century physician and alchemist Paracelsus’ concept of Spagyria: spao meaning “extract” and ageiro meaning “combine.”
The manifestation of Global Healing Center’s form of Spagyria is Harmonious Organic Supercharged Extract — the final outcome of a “revolutionary, multi-step, proprietary alchemy and spagyry-based processing technique”
This is confusing on at least two counts:
- Alchemy is an archaic “science” laden with unaccountable mysticism.
- Most quality supplements involve an herbal extraction process.
On that note, Androtrex certainly is a quality supplement — it seems to provide quality ingredients that all combine for optimized male hormone support — but most of the hype surrounding the supplement (and obscured by the formula’s “proprietary” status) seems overstated.
Altogether, what Androtrex seems to actually amount to is a quality liquid male supplement stacked with researched-backed adaptogenic and ergogenic herbs fit for the active, athletic male. The rest is just creative, overblown rhetoric.
Androtrex claims to “assist the body in regulating proper hormone balance” in support of:
- Superior Vitality
- Sexual Drive
- Overall Wellness in Males
Analyzing this formula strictly as a testosterone booster isn’t fair: Androtrex doesn’t make any explicit claims on testosterone but seems instead to target general hormone balance in men. On this front, Androtrex seems to do a fine job, missing out on all of the top doggs on our BIG List of T-Boosters, but supplying instead an impressive variety of male enhancing botanicals.
Who Takes It?
A lot of people. The number of customer reviews on the Global Healing Center site currently sit above 200, whereas Amazon customer reviews are in the 20’s. Men seeking better vitality and energy levels, as well as men hoping to build bigger muscles, seem drawn to this supplement.
Any Side Effects?
None reported. In fact, unhappy customers were more likely to report no effects than side effects — and of the customers that reported no effects, most seemed to go into this supplement expecting major anabolic testosterone gains.
- All Natural. The organic status gives off major peace-love-hippie vibes.
- Solid Choices. Some of the best herbal ingredients presented here.
- Vitality. Feeling good again is the name of the game with Androtrex.
- Proprietary. Androtrex boasts a big game but hides important information.
- Hype. The Spagyrex claims come off a bit snake oily.
- Expensive. But if you buy two, you can save up to almost five bucks!

Final Word on Androtrex
Don’t supplement Androtrex for major testosterone boosts. View it as an energy restorative, vitality vivifying supplement for the aging males. Dr. Edward F. Group III recommends Androtrex for men aged 28 and over. Sure, that seems reasonable. Some slightly younger men report of benefits as well, so give it a try if you’re a younger dood trying to up your lifting game.
