Chicks, cars and casinos can often be really dumb ways to waste your hard earned money.
But they all seem like sound investments when you take a look at what Vitalikor : TEST has to offer you for the price of membership in a decent gym.
There are many words to describe a great T-booster. Vitalikor:TEST somehow manages to avoid them all.
We’ll still give this crappy-ass product a review but only because we want to edify our Bros on what NOT to look for in a T-booster.
About Vitalikor: TEST
Made by Vitality Research Labs, Vitalikor is a perfect example of a product that’s easy to avoid if you already know how to buy a good supplement. From poor dosages to a poorly thought-out website, Vitalikor: TEST is more like a TEST of your patience than a T-booster. Formula notes:
- Weak-ass known dosages: Zinc and Magnesium are great T-Boosters, but VITK:TEST’s low dosages of them foreshadow a low-quality formula.
- Weak-ass unknown dosages: The 754 mg serving size seems unlikely to deliver Critical Mass dosages on the ingredients hidden in their prop blend.
- Other ingredients: Not one, not two, but five needless artificial colorants in one product. Are they trying to form a rainbow?

One of the more half-baked T-boosters in the market.
Vitalikor: TEST is a formula fail. Period. It looks like someone just put some well-known names in the T-booster market without actually verifying if they work on T. Hell, it looks like they put more focus on the amount of synthetics and artificial crap in their Other Ingredients rather than the formula itself. And some major red flags later on make the whole thing unravel.
But let’s take a deeper look at the ingredients that make up Vitalikor: TEST, anyway. (or skip that nonsense altogether and click here to see our Best 5 T-Booster Supplements).
Magnesium 22 mg + Zinc 9 mg
These two are great T-boosters and their forms are definitely OK but boy did they mess up on the dosage. Come on, 5.5% DV for Magnesium and not even 15 mg for Zinc?! Even multivitamins have better dosages, Vitalikor! WEEEEEAAAAAK!!!
Apple and Grape Extract
Grape extract may supply aromatase-inhibiting activity that may help to indirectly support your testosterone levels. OK, that’s cool. But we must question their Apple Extract. Apple polyphenols can potentially inhibit testosterone production.
PhytoForce with Tongkat Ali
Tongkat Ali is a decent T-Booster. Using standardized PhytoForce might make it a little better by enhancing absorption. BUT, we don’t know what level of standardization they use, and we still don’t know the dosage… making it hard to get to excited about an otherwise passable testosterone-booster herb.
One of the best sex enhancers and a pretty good T-booster too, despite its anti-dihydrotestosterone (DHT). But again, no dosage? No standardization? No dice, bro.
- Rhodiola Rosea. It’s our #2 Best5 Nootropic for anxiety and is a great stress buster. Good for sex drive and physical performance, too… but not really a T-booster.
- Rhaponticum Carthamoides. Russian herb for sports & muscle. Nope, still not a T-booster.
- Boron. Finally, something good. Boron is #5 Best5 T-booster. It’s effective even at small doses.
- BioPerine. An excellent ingredient for maximizing absorption of just about any compound.
As much as we want to assume Vitalikor: Test got their prop blend right, the impression they gave us with their mineral dosages and small serving size makes us assume otherwise.
Sure, they have Boron, Magnesium, Zinc, Tongkat Ali, Fenugreek, and Bioperine; all great choices for a testosterone & masculine health formula.
But hiding your key ingredients in a prop blend means forfeiting any forms of objective criticism and right now Vitalikor: TEST isn’t looking good.
We’re not even sure if the Rhodiola they included is enough to let you relax once you find out you just wasted your money on a shitty T-booster.
Let’s not even dive in on their rampant use of artificial ingredients. Just look at the number of coloring agents in one capsule. They’re “safe” and all but totally unnecessary and can potentially harm your insides if you go long with Vitalikor: TEST.
Even their website has red flags all over. No product details, no supplement facts, out of stock, and not even a hint of a money back guarantee.
It’s a shame too, since just showing and increasing the dosages could have made a huge difference with this formula… it’s like they’re one step away from having a legitimate T-booster, but they just won’t take it.
Red Flags: Level 3 Bullshit Alert
Remember how we said one glance could tell you to not buy this product, if you knew what to look for? Well, the Vitalikor:Test box is sexy-looking, but closer examination raises some red flags we wanted to point out. Check it, Broseph:
BS Alert #1
What are they talking about here? It’s a formula, not a compound. And if they do mean compound, which specific ingredient are they talking about? It doesn’t matter; nothing in Vitalikor:TEST is a breakthrough anyway!
BS Alert #2
See that tiny phrase at the top? “Shown to help improve*”… implies that Vitalikor:TEST has been clinically studied, and has positive clinical trial results that substantiate their claims for muscle mass, performance, and sex drive. But they don’t have any such clinical trial… so it’s all LIES!! Boooooo, Vitalikor!
BS Alert #3
This one really pisses us off, and is probably illegal or at the very least breaking some Federal Trade Commission rules. Right on the front panel, we have this statement: “Covered by US Patents: 7,132,117 and 5,536,506. Additional patents pending.”
If you’re shopping in a store, you might say, “Holy crap, this T-booster formula is patented TWO times! It must be awesome!” But no, Bro. We looked into it and found out that:
- US Patent 7,132,117 is for PhytoForce, NOT Vitalikor. Plus, it’s a patent for sexual dysfunction and infertility, NOT for testosterone.
- US Patent 5,536,506 is for BioPerine, NOT Vitalikor. The patent is for nutrient absorption, and again is not related to testosterone.
All these derps add up to some deceptive marketing practices that make it impossible for us to trust Vitalikor: TEST or its manufacturer, Vitality Research Labs.
Vitalikor: TEST Benefits
In theory it should be capable of giving you enhanced sex drive and maybe a bit of T boost at most. But don’t get your hopes up as it’s a pretty weak product. We actually don’t believe this shitshow of a formula will bring you any benefits at all.
Who Takes It?
This formula is designed for noobs who don’t know any better and end up writing either a positive placebo-effect review or a really disappointed 1-star complaint.
Any Side Effects?
No side effects reported. If nothing else, Vitalikor: TEST is probably well-tolerated, since it is so damn weak!
Vitalikor: TEST Summary
- Good forms. Formula’s a mess but some ingredients are decent.
- BioPerine. Normally a sign of quality; gives a potency bump here
The Big Con
Vitality Research Labs once recalled one of their major products for undeclared active ingredients that could lower blood pressure to unsafe levels. Who knows what they put inside Vitalikor: TEST. There’s even some wacko guy who claims it shrinks your dick. After what we saw here, that crazy claim might actually justified.
- Poor dosages. They showed us two and they were bad.
- Useless website. Retail sites show more information.
- Damn expensive. Heavily discounted in online stores but we’re still not buying.
Pricing & Buying Info
- 1 bottle (60 capsules): $59.99 (from $89.99)
- Available at major retailers. Actually it’s available at some of the BIGGEST and most popular retailers, including luckyvitamin, GNC, vitacost, Swanson and more. This is disappointing to us, and we feel that all of these retailers should be ashamed of themselves for offering this shit product to their loyal customers. That’s right. Best 5 is calling all y’all out, bitches.
Final Word on Vitalikor: TEST
We won’t even think about taking Vitalikor: TEST. Even if you bundled it with our favorite men’s mag. When you see so many damn red flags surrounding a T-booster formula, the smartest thing you can do is just walk away.
