Not everything that looks nice is nice.
And not everything that is nice looks nice.
So …there you go, end of review. What else do you need to know when we’ve just discovered that there’s no way to truly know anything? Morphology & ontology have nothing to do with each other, so let’s just pack it up, throw it all away, and consume drugs into eternity.
With Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula, it’s apparent to us that we’re looking at a very good-looking formula. But is that what it is — a good formula?
Let’s do our best to find out.
About Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula
Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula tells you everything it needs to know with its name: Testosterone Formula — this is a formula for testosterone …but is it really? Formula notes:
- Trademarked Ingredients: Not only is this a trademarked formula but its full of top-notch, premium patented ingredients.
- Standardized Extracts: Integrative Therapeutics enhances the potency on its herbs by extracting them for & standardizing them to their bioactive constituents.
- Weak T Boosts: Yet, even with the potent herbs, premium brands, & clean additive-free capsules, Integrative Therapeutics delivers weak test boosts.

Anti-stress adaptogens with physical & sexual performance enhancement — Feels Good, Man.
Not to mention the vitamins & minerals, which are, for the sake of enhancing male health, pretty spot-on (although missing out on the full ZMA trio due to an absence of vitamin B6):
- Zinc (as OptiZinc) – Hefty dose (30 mg) of a quality trademarked form of our #2 favorite test booster: Zinc, baby, yeaaahhh..
- Magnesium – With zinc, Integrative Therapeutics’ magnesium accomplishes 2/3rds of the ZMA trio, delivering mineral replenishment for the mineral sweating athletes.
- Vitamin D – Best5’s #4 test booster sitting on a meh dosage of 400 IU — however, we’ll still take it as vitamin D levels seem directly related to T levels.
- Selenium (as SelenoExcell) – Well-researched brand of selenium, believed to supply significant antioxidant protection on the prostate & sperm quality.
The remaining vitamins & minerals (vitamin A, biotin) are solid as well, but the meat of this formula is held in Integrative Therapeutics’ herbal extracts. Check it:
Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula Ingredients
Only three herbal ingredients, two sitting on substantial dosages (Trib & Ashwagandha), one that could definitely use more, but all coming in hot with potent, standardized extracts. Take a look:
Tribulus Terrestris Extract – Traditional male enhancer herb that might indirectly help T-precursor status, although all-in-all the plant doesn’t seem to do much for testosterone (for the average, healthy male). One thing it does surely do: It boosts sex & libido, making you feel goooood.
Ashwagandha Extract – The name ashwagandha translates from Sanskrit to “Smell of Horse,” which is in obvious reference to ashwagandha’s smell (it does smell horsey) but also to the “horsepower”-strengthening effects delivered by the adaptogen’s anti-stress boosts on physical & sexual performance. This plant also makes you feel good & groovy in a sedating sort of way.
Asian Ginseng Extract – Ginseng seems to help with everything, increasing both energy & relaxation at the same time, yet its test boosting potential is hard to pin down. One elusive study from the 90’s reported T-boosts with the plant, but we haven’t seen any other evidence of this since.
Not the most powerful testosterone boosters but great for male health.
Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula is as simple as its name indicates, if not just a little bit disappointing …okay, it’s more than a little bit disappointing, given that we’re only seeing one notable test booster herb (ashwagandha) alongside a couple test boosting minerals (zinc, magnesium) that are great for male health but only worth the supplementation under conditions of mineral deficiency.
Do many men even experience mineral deficiency? Actually, some do, most notably athletes, who are a major audience for zinc + magnesium supplementation. Ditto for Integrative Therapeutics’ herbs: This trio isn’t the hardest hitting testosterone boosters, but they do help with physical & sexual performance.
For younger men who are already in their T prime, this isn’t a bad feel-good set-up.
For the older men? Ironically, these herbs might actually work better for older users, however they’re not enough to assist with age-related testosterone decline. To the guys looking to significantly boost their test status, we recommend a harder-hitting testosterone booster supplement — at least one harder than this.
Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula Benefits
The manufacturer’s benefit claim is simple & straightforward:
Testosterone Formula™ is a vitamin, mineral, and herbal support for healthy testosterone levels. Testosterone Formula™ men’s hormone support combines essential nutrients with botanical extracts, such as ginseng and tribulus, to help support healthy testosterone levels.”
Healthy testosterone levels. Not “massive ALPHA male muscle!” or “BALL-dropping T boosts!” but simply “healthy testosterone levels.” We appreciate the BS-free claims coming from Integrative Therapeutics, who seem to err on the side of minimalism in nearly everything they do.
Perhaps Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula won’t product massive results, but it does seem to mildly assist with T status as a daily male health supplement.
Who Takes It?
Aging men. Integrative Therapeutics’ website makes note of declining T levels as men age, implying their Testosterone Formula as a solution to this. We’re not entirely convinced on this, but older men may benefit by the formula’s energy & stamina boosts.
Any Side Effects?
Nope. No significant side effects have been reported in the customer reviews, nor would we expect any adverse effects from this high quality batch of ingredients.

Final Word on Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula
Thanks to Integrative Therapeutics’ transparency, this has been one of the easier products to review: No hidden BS, proprietary masked dosages, etc. As a product, Integrative Therapeutics Testosterone Formula is clean & high quality. As a T-booster, it’s weak. However, for only $33 (& 90 capsules) it’s definitely worth trying out.
