What Is TestoRip X?
TestoRip X is a natural testosterone boosting supplement, only available online, that makes similar promises to other products of its kind.
By using this stuff, they say you’ll see:
- Extreme energy.
- Intense sex drive.
- Accelerated muscle gain.
- Explosive performance in the gym and in the bedroom.
As a natural testosterone booster, TestoRip X claims to reverse the normal decline in testosterone levels that occurs as men age.
When you were 20, your body was awash in testosterone. It practically oozed out of your pores.
That’s why energy was boundless, workouts were easy, fat was practically non-existent, and always being ready for sex was a huge part of your identity.
But year after year, your body produces less and less T, until sometime usually in your 30s or early 40s, you start to notice the difference.
You don’t have the energy and stamina you used to have, you start to get a little flabby, workouts you used to do with ease are much more difficult now, and even when you do the workouts, you just don’t get the ripped and shredded look you used to enjoy.
Part of this is probably due to growing up and changing priorities – with jobs and families taking up a lot of your focus.
But a lot of it is due to the normal, natural decline in testosterone production.
TestoRip X restarts that testosterone producing engine, and on top of that, works to make sure the testosterone you do have remains free and available for use.When you get your levels tested, there are two important numbers: total testosterone and free testosterone.
Total testosterone is all the testosterone you have in your body, but free testosterone is the number that really matters.
It represents how much T you really have available for use.
A protein called SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) attaches itself to some of your testosterone, binding it up and making it unavailable for use by the body.
The less SHBG you have binding to your testosterone, the more remains free for your body to use, and the more vital you feel.
In theory, that’s how TestoRip X works.
It encourages increased production of total testosterone in your body, and it reduces the effect of SHBG on total testosterone, so free testosterone levels remain high.
So let’s see how this theory holds up in the real world.
TestoRip X Ingredients
There’s a good amount of information on TestoRip X and how it works on its official website, but if you don’t look hard enough, you’ll miss the ingredient list.
There’s actually a link way down at the bottom of the site that displays a TestoRip X label:
Basically the formula is just under 1500 mg of a proprietary formula that includes:
- Horny Goat Weed (aka Epimedium Sagittatum) which is an herbal aphrodisiac that also helps increase blood flow to the penis during erection.
It’s been comparied to PDE5 inhibitors in how it works.
- Tongkat Ali which is believed to increase levels of free testosterone by inhibiting the action of SHBG.
The TestoRip X website links to a small study that seems to affirm this notion.
The dosage used in the study was 400 mg daily, but because of the proprietary blend, we don’t know if that’s the dose present in TestoRip X.
- Saw Palmetto which supports prostate health which benefits male sexual health in several ways.
- Orchic Substance which is believed to increase natural testosterone production.
- Wild Yam which works to maintain a proper balance between male and female sex hormones.
- Sarsaparilla which contains the same saponins (testosterone building blocks) as are found in the Wild Yam.
- Nettle Extract which, like Saw Palmetto, supports prostate health.
- Boron which may inhibit the action of SHBG and raise free testosterone levels as well.
It’s a pretty good list, but there’s one glaring omission, and that’s D-Aspartic Acid.
DAA has shown the most promise in clinical studies, showing that it actually can increase testosterone levels by over 40% in 12 days.
We should also note one more time that even though Tongkat Ali has been shown in a trial to increase free testosterone, we don’t know if the dose used in TestoRip X is even close to the dose used in the successful testing.
The TestoRip X Free Trial Scam
So, on the face of it, TestoRip X looks like it could be a pretty fair natural testosterone booster.
It doesn’t knock it out of the park, but it appears that it could have a positive effect on your testosterone levels and all that goes with that.
The next thing to do is see what it costs and decide whether or not it’s a good value for the money.
If you’re just casually looking at the website, the “fact” that TestoRip X is FREE will probably jump right out at you:
But hold up just a minute and I’ll show you how TestoRip X is not only not “risk free”, it’s actually going to cost you a lot of money if you’re not very careful.
It’s a common online supplement marketing scheme where they make you think you get to try it for free.
What really happens when you sign up is that you pay a small shipping fee (that’s how they get your credit card number) and they send you a full one-month supply bottle.
From the moment you order, you have 14 days to decide whether or not you like the stuff.14 days isn’t a lot of time, and that includes the time it takes for them to ship it to your house, so you’ll want to be ready to start using it right away.
If you don’t call and cancel within 14 days from your order date, they’ll charge your credit card the full price of $88.99 for the “free” bottle you already received, and they’ll keep sending you full price bottles every month until you cancel.
So to sum it up, the free trial is not really free – they just basically delay charging you the full price for 14 days.
On the 15th day, unless you’ve already called and canceled, they will charge you that full price, and not only that, but you’re locked in to buy a new bottle every month.

TestoRip X and NitroNos X Stack
You may have first heard of TestoRip X through a Men’sHealth magazine article about this incredible new bodybuilding stack that all the celebrities are using to put on insane amounts of muscle for their leading roles in action films.
Here’s the headline:
The stack they’re talking about is TestoRip X and NitroNos X, but don’t be fooled.
It’s not really Men’s Health Magazine, and this exact same article has been used to market dozens of other supplement stacks.
All they do is replace the product names – everything else stays the same.
And the truth is, it’s not even an article.
It’s an advertisement, and even states as much at the end of the page:
Give that a read if you want a good laugh.
They actually say at the end of this article with testimonials about fantastic results and statements that these products are used by celebrities, that the whole thing is just a story, made up to entertain you with ideas of what would be nice to happen with a supplement.
What about NitroNos X?
They want you to buy TestoRip X and NitroNos X together so they can get double the money, but you can also get them separately.
The Company Behind TestoRip X
There is no separate company name for TestoRip X.
They just call themselves TestoRip X with addresses in Orlando and St.
Petersburg, Florida.Actually, they say their corporate headquarters is in Orlando, but they don’t list a street address.
Product returns go to a PO Box in St Petersburg, so they don’t give a full company address at all.
I did a quick check with the Better Business Bureau, and TestoRip X did show up (combined with NitroNos X).
There’s only one complaint so far, and it’s about the free trial scam, but these products are still pretty new.
Give it some time and I’m sure there’ll be more complaints listed.
FYI, the company did not respond to the complaint, which is not a very positive sign for how easy they’ll be to deal with if you find yourself in the position of needing to.
TestoRip X Customer Feedback
All the other stuff is important, but the real heart of the matter is whether or not a product works, so in the end, that’s what we really want to know.
One of the best ways to find that out is by checking out what people who’ve actually used it have to say.
At this point, the only real customer feedback we could find is about how people have gotten scammed with the free trial offer.
We already talked about the complaint filed with the Better Business Bureau.
The only other thing we could find was another complaint about the free trial scam, but this one added a little information about how the product is actually working for him.
“I tried to call and get my money back because I am completely dissatisfied, I thought they had a 30 or 60 day money back guarantee… I’m assuming they don’t because they would be constantly getting returns and refunding consumers money, I’M NOT GETTING ANY RESULTS FROM THEM EITHER; I feel like this is all a hoax”!
Again, this product is pretty new.
I’m fairly certain we’ll be seeing more complaints roll in.
