Only Natural Vegetarian Testosterone Support Review
Given its connection to the bodybuilding world, some may think it’s only red blooded, protein hungry red meat eaters who are interested in getting the most out of their testosterone.
An increasing number of boosters however, are out to prove that you don’t have to eat beefcake to want to be one. Only Natural Vegetarian Testosterone Support is the latest offering for those non-meat eaters.
The meat content in supplements can be found in anything from the ingredients themselves to the gelatin, which helps the capsules dissolve, so it’s always great to have these alternatives.
Only Natural Vegetarian Testosterone Support is suitable for herbivores, but it’s also okay for those on a kosher diet. So, veggie, kosher, but what about effective?
Thankfully there are no proprietary blends to contend with, so we can analyze all the ingredients and their amounts. Let’s see if this product can compete with the meat.
How Does It Work?
At a Glance
- L-Arginine to increase blood flow
- Tongkat Ali and Horny Goat Weed to boost libido T
- Fenugreek to support T creation.
- Pygeum Bark to aid prostate health
- Tribulus Terrestris to allegedly help testosterone
A fair bit to examine then but first let’s deal with the scores
A good amount of fenugreek is a smart move for any testosterone booster, but it can’t get your male hormone moving by itself.
That’s effectively what it’s being asked to do here because Trib is no help while Eurycoma Longfolia and Horny Goat Weed are just glorified libido stimulators. Nods to increasing energy with Arginine and helping prostare health with Pygeum bark are not going to be strong enough.
Under $20 for a booster is very cheap and that alone might make it tempting for some. Remember though $15 a month is like 180 bucks a year, for a product that as far as we can see won’t have much of an effect on your testosterone levels.
Our point is cheap and good value don’t always go hand in hand and this is an example of that.
Only Natural Vegetarian Testosterone passes the most important test, by being safe and side effect free. Which we can be sure of courtesy of the fully disclosed formula.
After that though, we take real issue with presenting the majority of these ingredients as the best way to support your testosterone. The clinical evidence just doesn’t back this up.
There’s no testimonial section on the Only Natural website, so it’s customer feedback on retail sites we’ve got to rely on. Trouble is there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of those either, and what there is is extremely mixed. A handful of positive reports are usually out-weighed by users saying they really didn’t notice all that much difference.
We found a lot to admire about Only Naturals as company, even if their booster supplement wasn’t one of those things.
On the website there is an extensive history of the company founded in in 1986 by Robert LoMaccino with 28 employees. They outline their dedication to product saftey, staying veggie and kosher as well as showing care for the environment. They do a range of supplements covering all areas of natural health as well as a selection of other products like teas.
It’s a real pity this formula isn’t a lot better because Only Natural has great intentions.
How Do I Take It?
Users are told to take 2 capsules a day with meals.
Whether this is together or spaced out it’s not going to be enough. Ideally you’re looking for 4 evenly spaced servings to keep the active formula topped up and working all day.
With just 2 there’s bound to be a tail off and even if Only Natural Vegetarian Testosterone was the best thing since sliced eggplant, which it isn’t, you wouldn’t be getting the most out of this supp.
Only Natural Vegetarian Testosterone Support Side Effects?
There’s nothing in here that suggests you are likely to suffer side effects.
Where Can I Get Only Natural Vegetatian Testosterone Support?
Customers can get this brand from the Amazon.com for $15.39 buying a month’s supply of 60 caps.
Ingredients – In Detail
Fenugreek is a great choice for few reasons. Firstly it’s use in cooking has proved it to be a real aphrodisiac, but unlike other ingredients here there;s more too it than just that. It also stimulates important androgens for T and helps regulate blood sugar levels. This is key because it means balanced insulin and no chance of skewed amounts preventing T creation. 400mg is a really solid dose too,
While it does nothing direct for your T, this choice does contain compounds which trials have shown can help to shrink an enlarged prostate. Prostate health is absolutely key, especially in older guys so we’re not writing this off completely, but there’s only 50mg here and the research could be stronger for sure.
Tribulus was once thought to be a great T booster, but clinical trials have ruined its cred. It’s proven to do nothing for us except raise help sex drive when taken in large amounts. We only have 100mg here so it won’t even do that. Mark this down as a waste wherever you see it.
In its defence Arginine is pretty good at boosting nitric oxcide levels in the bod, which helps to increase blood flow and can keep you exercising for longer. The problem is Arginine is poorly absorbed by the body when taken in capsule form, so you need a lot to see effects. 400mg is a hefty amount, but not really enough.
Horny Goat Weed
Here as Epidimedium Sagittatium this ingredient is mainly just good for stimulating libido and may some qualities for strengthening erections in cases of E.D. As far as direct help for T though, there’s not much to report.
Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma Longfolia)
Some studies show a slight increase in T with this choice, but where it’s more helpful is boosting libido. This is one of the things we’re promised from this product but with a question mark over dose it’s not guaranteed.
A fancy name for vitamin B3. Increased levels of B3 might possibly help sustain good heart health, but as far as helping your male hormone’s it’s pretty much got nothing.
Only Natural Vegetarian Testosterone Support has a list as long as your arm of proper T boosting ingredients we would like to have seen: Vitamin D3, Zinc, Magnesium, D-Aspartic Acid and vitamin B6 … and that’s just for starters.
The truth is this booster is really disappointing with only 1 real T boosting ingredient. It may be natural and it may be vegetarian, but as testosterone support, fittingly for a veggie product it just doesn’t have the chops.
