A Review of Testroden: Testosterone Booster.
This is a look at a relatively new product called Testodren. It's made by Primegenix, If you haven't heard of Testodren before, it's worth a good look. It is an all-natural product (as some others are) but it is truly unique in the market.
This is an in-depth article. If you're already familiar with the concept of testosterone supplements, you may well want to skip further down. But in the first part I do cover some basics about testosterone and testosterone boosters for those new to the subject.
And if you're curious, you can see it at the company's official website HERE. (That will also take you to the best "discounted" price.)
In this article, at a glance:
- What testosterone is, and why it decreases over time
- What low testosterone looks like and how it affects you
- Why you want to use a testosterone booster, and why you want a NATURAL one

What, exactly, is testosterone and what does it do?
Testosterone is a hormone your body produces. So, what is a hormone?
According to Cleveland Clinic, hormones are “chemical messengers that coordinate different functions in your body."
Just like your body uses electrical impulses through your nervous system to control things like breathing and movement, the body also uses chemical signals (hormones) to regulate body temperature, digestion, mood, to trigger muscle and bone growth and many other things.
Testosterone is a hormone produced by both males and females. In males, the testicles produce it. In females, the ovaries do it. Fun fact: both male and female share all the same hormones. They just do in different proportions. That means men have estrogen and women have testosterone. Just different amounts of each compared to the other sex.
Testosterone (according to Harvard Medical School) is the major sex hormone in males (as opposed to estrogen in females). In males it is responsible for:
- Developing the male genitalia
- Deepening the voice during puberty
- Growing facial and pubic hair starting at puberty;
- Stimulating the growth of muscle size and strength
- Bone growth and strength
- Sex drive
- Production of sperm
But over time, men have lower levels of testosterone. And compared to what might be optimal for the body, most men are probably testosterone deficient.
What low testosterone symptoms can look like
Lower hormone levels (in this case, lower testosterone levels) can cause:
- Hot flashes
- Hair loss
- Decreased muscle mass
- Increased body fat
- Decreasing bone mass
- Decreased memory function
- Smaller "size" (you know what that means)
- Lower blood cell counts - which can result in leg cramping, increased heart rate, poorer sleep, decreased focus.
- lower sex drive
- even erectile dysfunction.
Why men develop testosterone deficiency
Perhaps testosterone "deficiency" isn't always the best way to look at it. Sometimes it's partly deficiency, and sometimes it's just an unfortunate result of the aging process.
But I guess the question in my mind was, why would I want to boost my testosterone as I get older? And although that seemed obvious at first, I wanted to find out why this hormone that triggers muscle growth and bone density dwindles with age. Because if that happens for GOOD REASON, why tinker with nature?
I had to dig some to find out why our testosterone levels drop as we age. It turns out that testosterone levels reduce over time for various reasons. And most of them are not good reasons.
Why do testosterone levels dwindle over time?
Most of the reasons our testosterone production drops off with age are just plain “wearing out” over time. There is no particularly good reason that your body makes less as you age.
It’s not so much that you need less. It's more that you still need it but your body is saying, “tough. I’m done.”
Weight gain leads to being sedentary. Less activity tends to put less demand on muscle and bone mass. Medications over time tend to lessen our body’s ability to produce testosterone. There are numerous effects for it. They all affect the loss of testosterone.
But one of the main culprits for this recurring theme (sedentary equals more weight, less energy, etc.) is the decreased amounts of testosterone over time.
The fact is, you'd probably benefit greatly from doing something to boost the body's natural testosterone production.
For me, I came to the conclusion that if there is no “good” reason your body starts to reduce testosterone production, then it would probably do me well to encourage my body to produce more of it. Part of that is enabling it with proper ingredients to naturally produce more healthy levels of testosterone.
And this seems to be the conclusion reached by many researchers on the subject. Processed foods, sedentary lifestyles and many other “unnatural” things in our environment tend to cause our bodies to not run as well as they should.
In addition to that, there are sometimes effects from prescription medications that cause the body to slow the release of testosterone.
So now, the question becomes: can we do healthy things to enhance and encourage the body's natural testosterone production?
What are testosterone "boosters" (testosterone supplements)?
A "testosterone booster" or testosterone supplement refers to any substance that triggers your body to generate more testosterone.
Now this can be done by some more “natural” means and some by more “unnatural” means. And in my books, the more natural, the better. I’ve heard of these guys with “roid rage” at the gym.
I don’t want to be that guy. I want to stay reasonably fit, but I don't want to live at the gym and I don't want to be angry all the time from chemical rage.
Neither do you, I expect. And so, for me, anabolic steroids are out. Anabolic steroids are man-made, synthetic steroids that try to mimic the natural hormones in the body. Pharmaceuticals scare me.
And they have some potentially nasty side effects.
Enter TESTODREN: a NATURAL (and patented) testosterone booster
Testodren is an interesting product with some interesting claims:
- it is available without a prescription (which makes it easily available and also speaks to its relative safety as a supplement
- it addresses issues of slowing muscle growth and increasing weight gain.
- it has been tested and proven to increase free testosterone levels by 72% in just twelve weeks
- it increases your focus, stamina and motivation
- it is 100% NATURAL
Curiously, I see over and over that Testroden is touted as both "100% natural" and patented.
That was always curious when I was seeing it. Because if you know anything about patents, you'll know that you cannot get a patent on a natural substance. So what gives with that?
Well, it turns out, it really is "both." But I will get to that a bit later. What that means, though, is this is a natural product but they're the only one with it.
Anyway, to me, if I can stimulate my body to trigger more testosterone growth without using man-made chemicals to do it, that sounds like the best way for me to go.
There are both good and bad ways to boost testosterone. Knowing that you’re doing it the RIGHT way is important.
Natural is important.
Your body can deal with substances that are natural. But synthetic substances - man-made pharmaceutical substances - are something that your liver always has to break down and it wasn't made to do that. That always has adverse side effects long-term.
So yeah. Natural is important.
So what makes Testroden from Primegenix so unique?
Check out this video by Dr. Kaleb Redden, a sports medicine physician, also known as "Dr. Thor" on television. He's an orthopedic physician at St. Luke's Clinic in Tampa, Florida.
Hear what he has to say about Testroden.
(If you want to, Click HERE for the Testodren web page.)
Now, Dr. Redden's endorsement of this product is pretty impressive. And I'm familiar with PrimeGenix from other research I've done.
But I know that PrimeGenix isn't the only company that makes a testosterone booster. For this reason, I did some digging and comparing because I wanted to see what, in fact, is the difference (if any) between the ingredients in Testodren and the other brands of testo boosters out there. So...
What are the testosterone boosters on the market and what are they made of?
The lists of ingredients in testosterone boosters are relatively short. Unlike most prostate supplements, which have anywhere from 25 to 50 different ingredients, the list of ingredients in the testosterone boosters are relatively short.
In this "testosterone booster" group, they have, at the most, about 10 to 12 ingredients.
Some (including Andro 400 and Testodren) only have ONE ingredient.
Removing the vitamins and minerals from the picture to draw attention to "the magic" makes the picture even more clear.
Keep in mind that I am not saying vitamins and minerals are unimportant.
Indeed, they are. But from an overall health perspective, hopefully you're already on some kind of a quality multi-vitamin and mineral supplement. I do. And in addition to that, I take fish oil (and now, after Covid, I also take quercetin). From what I've read it seems this is probably a good idea for everyone.
In fact, my suspicion (though I'm not a nutritionist) is that a good multivitamin is probably AT LEAST as important as a testosterone booster to your overall health.
But I'm doing both. I believe most men should. But here is why I see them as separate things.
Apart from the vitamins and minerals (which you should already be getting) the ingredients lists in testosterone boosters are very small.
What I see in the charts is that there seem to be 3 "families" of ingredients across the brands. When I say that, keep in mind that some of them have a relatively longer list of stuff, but it's stuff that you'd see in a good multi-vitamin anyway.
For specific "testosterone boost" ingredients, I see in the chart a couple notable features. Here is what I see.
- The "Andro 400" group has Longjack (which is Malaysian Ginseng).
- The Testogen, TestoPrime and TestRX brands have some various vitamins and herbs (some more than others) and a combination of some fenugreek and D-Aspartic acid.
- And then there is the Testodren. It's makeup is unique. It has one ingredient. That ingredient is Furosap.
What is Furosap?
You've probably heard of fenugreek before. "Trigonella foenum-graecum" is the Latin name for Fenugreek. And Testogen's main ingredient is derived from Fenugreek. But my understanding is that Furosap (this particular fenugreek extract) is kind of like "fenugreek on steroids."
The active ingredient in Furosap is "Protodioscin."
Protodioscin is the active chemical in Fenugreek and what makes the Fenugreek do what it does. The problem, according to the Primegenix website, is that the protodioscin levels in fenugreek are very unpredictable. Sometimes you can get high doses of the chemical in a batch of Fenugreek, and sometimes it is almost non-existent.
According to the website,
And that’s why ordinary Fenugreek products don’t provide reliable results. That’s because many times there’s hardly any Protodioscin!
To solve this complicated problem, the Testodren formula is made with a patented purification process, so you always get the same consistency of this testosterone-boosting compound. In fact, this process enhances Protodioscin levels to 20% (which might be the highest concentration of this compound derived from Fenugreek in the entire world!). That’s why this patented “supercharged” compound is clinically proven to boost testosterone levels in multiple human clinical trials. And now this astonishingly effective breakthrough is exclusively available in Testodren.
(Source: the Testroden website.
This is how Testodren can be natural and patented at the same time.
I touched on this briefly before. But here is the point.
In short, the best way to explain this claim is to explain that Testodren has 100% natural ingredients. The ingredient is called Furosap. It captures the active chemical from the fenugreek plant called protodioscin.
But this stuff is harvested from the fenugreek plant in a way that "super compacts" and "super extracts" the best parts of the natural stuff out of the fenugreek plant by way of a patented process. And this process gives an extremely concentrated and precisely controlled dose of what your body needs to trigger higher testosterone levels.
So in that way, it is BOTH 100% natural, but ALSO patented, so it is truly unique in the world of testosterone boosters.
So now let's look again at the comparison of the products here.
In reality, Testodren vs the competition equals Furosap vs D-aspartic acid or Ginseng.
Look again at the major components of these three families of testosterone boosters. The "Andro 400" family (they offer two versions) both have Longjack (Malaysian Ginseng) as their major ingredient. The Testogen-TestRX-TestoPrime family uses a combination of Aspartic Acid and a relatively smaller component of fenugreek.
By contrast, Testodren has one ingredient - 500 mg of Furosap - which is a large dose of "super-extracted," or "super-concentrated" Protodioscin extracted from the fenugreek plant.
So what do the studies show about Longjack, D-Aspartic Acid and fenugreek?
Longjack (Malaysian Ginseng - Andro 400)
According to Web MD: "Eurycoma longifolia is used for erectile dysfunction (ED), male infertility, increasing sexual desire in healthy people, and boosting athletic performance, but there's no good scientific evidence to support most of these uses."
Although, I can't imagine it does nothing for anybody; how long would a company stay in business if this stuff didn't work? And there are reviews that swear by it. (But again, be aware of review bias.)
D-Aspartic Acid (The other guys)
Again, according to Web MD: "People use aspartic acid for fatigue, athletic performance, and muscle strength, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses."
Like I said for Andro 400, though, I can't imagine they would sell as much of it as they do if it didn't do anything at all. I'm just trying to find the same source here for a comparison. That is why I looked at Web MD.
Fenugreek (and keep in mind, the Testodren is a mega, super extract of Fenugreek)
Again, according to Web MD: "Possibly effective for... Increasing response to sexual stimuli in healthy people. Taking a specific fenugreek seed extract by mouth seems to improve ability and interest in sex in males. [Used for] sexual problems that prevent satisfaction during sexual activity. Taking a specific fenugreek seed extract... by mouth seems to increase interest in sex in healthy younger females with a low sex drive.
(I don't know, gentlemen. But I've heard before that increased testosterone in women makes them more "affectionate." I will have to look into that.)
It's amazing how many of these products made to increase desire in women share many ingredients in common with the ones for men.
Anway, based on the same source for "neutrality" (Web MD) it seems they seem to put more stock Fenugreek than Ginseng or Aspartic Acid.
Again, that is only a part of the story. Results will vary from one man to the next. And these products all sell, so there must be something to it.
You will probably want to do your homework. But I've been impressed with the product based on the resarch I've done.
The studies done on Testodren are fairly extensive compared to these other ingredients, and with impressive credentials.
From the NIH website:
Furosap (FS), an innovative, patented, 20% protodioscin-enriched extract was developed in our laboratory from fenugreek seeds.
Free testosterone levels were improved up to 46% in 90% of the study population. 85.4% of the study population showed improvements in sperm counts. Sperm morphology improved in 14.6% of volunteers. Majority of the subjects enrolled in the study demonstrated improvements in mental alertness and mood. Furthermore, cardiovascular health and libido were significantly improved.
From the NIH website.
A novel protodioscin-enriched fenugreek seed extract (Trigonella foenum-graecum) improves free testosterone level and sperm profile in healthy volunteers.
Methods: Furosap® (500 mg/day/subject) was administered to the 50 male volunteers over a period of 12 weeks in a one-arm, open-labelled study, to determine the efficacy on free and total testosterone levels, sperm profile and sperm morphology, libido and erectile dysfunction, mood and mental alertness...
Results: A statistically significant increase in free testosterone levels were observed in these volunteers following supplementation of Furosap®. Sperm morphology, sperm counts, mental alertness, mood, cardiovascular health, and libido performance were significantly improved. Extensive blood chemistry analyses revealed broad spectrum safety. No significant changes were observed in serum lipid function, cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL and LDL levels, and hemogram.
What are the pros and cons of Primegenix Testodren?
You can see from the above studies (even with NIH and FFHDJ) that the stuff is safe and effective, with no observed side effects. No negative effects on cholesterol, in serum lipid function or in hemogram results (complete blood count tests).
No need for a prescription
It's safer than synthetics and you don't need to get prescriptions filled for this stuff.
No need to "cycle" this booster.
There are some testosterone boosters that you can't take constantly. They're actually a little dangerous in this respect, in that you can't stay on them all the time. But, for the most part, that is the synthetic boosters that need to be used intermittently. Not so with this one. (Not with any of the others, either, as far as I can tell. Just to be fair.)
The web site quotes from the studies I've cited above, and points out that "The Testodren™ Formula Increased Free Testosterone 72.87% In Just 12 Weeks!"
They offer a 67-day money-back guarantee.
I'm not one to return things if I try them and they don't work for me. But it's a personal choice. If you are skeptical and want to try this stuff, they promise your money back with two months to see if it works for you. Sounds to me like nothing to lose.
Not cheap (but none of them are. Does it work?)
Cost is relative. None of the testosterone boosters are cheap; especially not the better ones. I often quote Zig Ziglar who says, "better to pay too much to get what you want then not enough to get what you need."
Speaking of cost, though, if you order the larger batch to test it (and you still have two months to try it) the price is HALF of what you'd pay for a comparable purchase of the Testogen. That's significant.
Need to order online (not a big deal)
Some of the best supplements are not available except by ordering from the company. Once you're stocked up, keeping stocked should be easy enough. But if you're anxious to try Testodren, you'll need to wait for it to ship.
(Get the "best discount" here, by the way...)
Not promoted as a cure for disease (and don’t forget a PSA test)
This is a supplement and it is designed to assist and enhance your body's basic functions. Testosterone is a normal part of a healthy system. But if you're dealing with prostate issues, be aware that it's probably good to get screened for prostate cancer. A PSA test is probably a good idea.
Be cautious if you're "estrogen sensitive."
The curious thing about fenugreek is that it is actually an herb that is used to stimulate milk production in women who are having trouble nursing. So it makes sense there is an "estrogen" connection. Just be aware (and I didn't see this mentioned in the other reviews) that if you have a sensitivity to estrogen or things estrogen-related, you might want to test this a little at a time or something.
You could (possibly) detect an odor in your urine from it.
There is a possibility (and I haven't heard this specifically about Furosap, so I don't even know if it happens) of an odor that could develop in your urine. The reason I mention it is more to do with something
I found that refers to this as a possibility with using fenugreek itself. Since Testodren is Furosap (which is a derivative of fenugreek) then I don't really know if it would be the same with this. Personally, I've not noticed any such thing. But as with any supplement, results vary.
What do customers say about it?
You could see it on the website. But for the highlight reel these are some of the Testodren reviews from the manufacturer's website. Here are a few summaries of testimonies from users of the product.
Virgil P. says (summary, in part)....
Virgil had used several different brands of testo boosters for about 3 or 4 years. He didn't see the promised results; not even when carefully following the manufacturer's directions.
So he was skeptical. But he took a gamble because he saw it was all-natural.
He was pleased. He noticed much better energy levels during cardio; "fuller" and "thicker" muscles. (And, gentlemen, it is a measure of overall health...) he says the "morning indicator" when waking up has returned.
Richard W. says (in part)...
Richard was skeptical, but after 2 months is a true believer. He had declining energy and also some decline in the bedroom. He ordered a 3-month supply and hoped for the best.
He noticed an increase in energy by the end of the second week. By 4 weeks in, he had higher energy even during workouts. (Better intimacy, too.)
My results have been similar. I've not been on it for long yet but I do already notice an increase in my energy levels. I will be reporting back again at the end of my trial period here.
Testodren is a natural product with no known adverse side effects. It boosts hormone levels (testosterone). It is a natural way to increase your testosterone, improve your libido, can increase bone density and muscle mass. And it does so without any reported side effects.
It works for younger men and it works for older men. It seems to work for ALL men. It increases sexual health and sexual performance. And it improves your physical health and your mental wellbeing.
