Almost every supplement manufacturer seems to have a “Black Series.”
Based on past products, we interpret this as code for “Shit’s About to Go Down.”
As a T-booster addition to ARO-Vitacost’s Black Series of supplements, TestosteRip Extreme fits under our shit’s-about-to-go-down radar: This isn’t any ol’ testosterone booster. This is a BLACK SERIES T-booster, dogg. Because ARO-Vitacost wouldn’t just throw any ol’ testosterone booster into their Black Series, would they?
Let’s hit the review to find out.
About ARO Black Series TestosteRip Extreme

- Affordable: The retail price averages out to $0.58 per serving, yet most retailers sell this product for an even cheaper price.

Let ‘er TestosteRip for lean muscle & energized sex pumps!
Sex enhancers, sex enhancers, and circulation boosters (which enhance sex). There’s the TL;DR version of this review: TestosteRip Extreme stacks potent, quality extracts of some of the best traditional libido boosters known to man (& woman). But do they also boost testosterone?
The TestosteRip Extreme Ingredient Review
TestosteRip Extreme does us a solid by displaying all of its ingredients out in the open, rather than hiding them beneath dosage masking proprietary blends. With that, let’s tackle each ingredient one-by-one:
Testofen® Fenugreek Extract – One of the better researched Fenugreek extracts, Testofen supplies a potent 40% saponins for increases in “free” T, libido, & muscle recovery.
Tribulus Terrestris Extract (& Powder) – Not a true T-booster but great for energized man power (namely: Sex). TestosteRip provides both Trib extract & powder, an interesting approach, potentially supplying a fuller spectrum of Trib bio-activity.
Oat Extract – Similar to Ginkgo & Vinpocetine, Oat Straw is believed to increase bodily circulation, assisting both mental & physical performance. Sparse research suggests this may have a positive effect on T status as well.
Horny Goat Weed Extract – Also not a true T-booster but rather a T mimic, providing the secondary sexual benefits of testosterone without enhancing the hormone itself. It’s all in the name: Horny Goat Weed (minus the “Goat” part).
ForsLean® Forskohlii Extract – Quality forskohlin extract, typically found in fat burner stacks for its metabolic benefits, although its cAMP activation may help sex performance as well as T synthesis.
All-in-all, good quality & good dosages on this all-herbal, all-natural roster.
Let’s get right to it: Does TestosteRip Extreme boost testosterone?
Yes. No. Maybe? Sure.
Of the 5 herbal extracts, the only ingredient with research-backed T boosts is Fenugreek, and even that isn’t the ballsiest T-booster around. Not that TestosteRip Extreme has to use only the big ball-droppers (DAA, Zinc, Mucuna Pruriens, D3, Boron) to qualify as a great product.
TestosteRip Extreme is a great product.
And that greatness lies in: A) the quality & potency of TestosteRip’s ingredients, and B) their efficacy in enhancing non-hormonal aspects of male performance.
Naturally, the first thing you think of when hear “male performance” is sex (to be fair, everything triggers this thought in us). TestosteRip Extreme sells itself on this aspect of male performance. Yet, what’s overlooked in this assessment are the other aspects of physical performance that are enhanced by herbs that enhance sexual performance: Muscle & strength gains, athletic prowess, etc.
There’s a PWO edge to TestosteRip Extreme’s boosts. Thus, if you’re supplementing TestosteRip as directed (2 capsules, 3 times daily), then you should be “ready to go” at all hours of the day.
TestosteRip Extreme Benefits
Attack – Recover – Optimize: This is the ARO TestosteRip Extreme credo, followed up by a list of specific benefit claims made by ARO-Vitacost:
- Promotes increased muscle mass and strength
- May contribute to healthy libido and sex drive
- May help enhance fat and weight loss
We appreciate that TestosteRip Extreme doesn’t make any exaggerated claims on testosterone levels, because this isn’t a product we’d suggest primarily identifies as testosterone booster. It’s a man enhancer, covering sex, libido, & muscle performance first. Secondary benefits on T are present but not to BEST for TEST levels.
Who Takes It?
Lean Muscle Seekers. We’d say bodybuilders, yet strictly getting big doesn’t quite sum up this product’s intent. It’s lean muscle that’s addressed by this supplement: “Get ripped, without getting ripped off.” And fortunately it doesn’t require your arm & leg for purchase.
Any Side Effects?
Nah. With exception to the maple syrupy smell added to your sweat & urine (thanks to Fenugreek), we wouldn’t expect any severe or significant side effects with TestosteRip Extreme. On the whole, this T-booster is backed by generally positive customer reviews.

Final Word on TestosteRip Extreme
TestosteRip Extreme works for getting ripped but only might help testosterone levels. Which, for the younger doods, is just fine: Your T levels are already poppin’ — no need to push it. Even so, TestosteRip Extreme may help put your T levels to better use for enhanced muscle & strength gains and bedroom performance, and for that we give it a high B5 recommendation.
