You want some killer T-boosters, boy?
Like, literally: T-boosters that can kill?
Neither do we, but that might be what we’re looking at here in the match-up between Testrol vs. TestoGen. For the most part, the T-boosters these products carry are “killer” in the cool rad 80’s-MTV sense of the word. But there’s a needle in this haystack that’s a little risky for male health.
Let’s see if we can find it:

Round 1: Formulas
Alright, Testrol, you done listing off your ingredients?
Lawd hammercy, that’s a lot you’re packing there.
Let’s see how they all work:
Testrol has a lot of balls.
Too many balls?
Is there such a thing?
Depends: Do you think 15 balls is too many balls?
Because that’s how many Testrol has, stacking up to a whopping 15 ingredients in its 4 capsule blend (that’s right: 4 capsules. So perhaps we’re aight here). That may sound pretty groovy to some of y’all, but these long-listed formulas have their cons as well as their pros:
- Pros. Some of the ingredients are bound to work. Those that work hit multiple angles on male health.
- Cons. The value of each ingredient is diluted. The longer the list, the higher the risk of bad ingredient interactions.
With regards to ingredient interactions, Testrol seems safe. At least there’s been zero reports of side effects with this formula. Yet, when you count up the ingredients that actually work for the T, the list is surprisingly small: Mucuna Pruriens, Fenugreek, Eurycoma Longifolia, Zinc, Magnesium.
Granted, some of the BEST T-boosters carry these ingredients, but with so many other ingredients in this formula, it’s hard to gauge how much individual value these boosters have here.
TestoGen has D-Aspartic Acid
Alright, call the round.
We don’t care what else TestoGen has, because D-Aspartic Acid is the best damn T-booster this side of… wherever else has better T-boosters.
There’s a reason DAA tops our BIG LIST of T-Boosters: It’s a damn ballsy T-booster, much ballsier than Testrol’s T-boosters—showing T-boosts of up to 42% in just 12 days. Daaayyyum.
On top of that, TestoGen also includes sportsy T-boosters Zinc, Fenugreek, Ginseng, & Vitamin D. A little less than what Testrol carries, but it’s that “little less” that actually benefits TestoGen in this round.
Tribulus Terrestris is kept off the list, despite being in damn near every T-booster, because, well… it doesn’t really boost T. But it is great for male health, so we ain’t mad seeing it here.
In conclusion of Round 1, TestoGen might have less balls than the ballsy Testrol, but at least TestoGen’s balls are bigger.
Round 1… TestoGen Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Speaking of bigger balls…
Check out TestoGen’s FAT wad of Zinc: 72 mg??
Crikey, TestoGen, what’re you trying to do: Kill us!?
That’s a lot of Zinc, if you couldn’t tell by our question marks & exclamation points. Way too much Zinc for the prostate to handle over time. The only people that should be supplementing that much Zinc are people severely depleted in Zinc. And only for a short period of time.
For that reason, TestoGen is disqualified. Which is a damn shame, considering that the rest of its dosages are looking mighty fine (with exception to that small ass Vitamin D dosage).
This isn’t a win that Testrol deserves, because so many of its dosages are so bad, but… that’s just how the cards played out this round.
A sad day for all of us.
Round 2… Testrol Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
We’ll continue the rounds, despite a Round 2 DQ.
Because why the hell not, right? Maybe you don’t give a shit about your prostate.
And from the get-go, the first thing we notice about both formulas:
- Some of their ingredients are awesome.
- Some of their ingredients suck ass.
Are we insinuating that sucking ass isn’t awesome?
You’re damn right: You never go ATM. Just like you never supply awesome herbs at piss poor ingredient qualities. Such is the fact with TestoGen’s plain Fenugreek, plain Ginseng, inferior B6; Testrol’s plain Fenugreek, plain Eurycoma Longifolia, shoddy Zinc Sulfate….
So let’s just call this one even and move on, eh?
Round 3… Tied.
Round 4: Price
|1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$34.99||1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$54.95|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.58||Price Per Capsule||$0.46|
|Price Per Serving||$1.17||Price Per Serving||$1.83|
Round 4… Testrol Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
You could match TestoGen up with a glass of water and it would still lose because of that Zinc dosage. It’s just too damn high.
But, if we’re being honest, TestoGen can boost T better than water can (no shit) and it can boost T better than Testrol. Because TestoGen has D-Aspartic Acid and Testrol has everything that’s not D-Aspartic Acid.
On that note, Testrol still boosts T and does impress us with a few quality herb extracts, so it’s not like it won just because TestoGen lost.
Both products are winners & losers, but Testrol is less of a loser.
