The Side Effects Of Natural Testosterone Boosters
Are Natural Testosterone Boosters Safe?
One of the most common questions that we ever get asked is whether taking natural testosterone boosters are safe?…
The answer to this question is quite simple – Yes – But Do Your Homework….
The recent increase in men demanding natural ways of boosting testosterone is largely due to the increasing reports of serious side effects – some life threatening being experienced by men who have been prescribed drug based testosterone therapy (TRT)….
Countless lawsuits are currently being heard in courts throughout the US.
In particular that have been filed by men who have suffered heart attacks and strokes after being prescribed drug based treatments.
This is the same reason why anabolic steroids are considered very risky and potentially dangerous for many.
Natural Testosterone Boosters work in a slightly different way to their drug based rivals..
Unlike drug TRT treatments that actually put foreign or synthetic testosterone into your body – a natural T booster provides essential vitamins, minerals and herbal extracts that stimulates your body into producing more of its own testosterone…
As the increase is of your own natural, genetically matched hormone, it’s unlikely to cause your body to react badly.

Side Effects Of Natural Testosterone Boosters
A good natural T booster will not cause any serious side effects.. that said some users could experience some mild effects which are actually a sign of the product working:
Some guys might experience:
Very Slight Testicular Pain – this is caused by the glands in the testicles working hard to create testosterone which also increases semen levels..
One way to reduce this is to have sex – ejaculation can release the pressure caused by the additional semen being produced.
Increased Acne – nothing too serious but increased testosterone can in some cases cause the skin to become slightly more oily which could cause a few spots to appear especially on the back.
Increased Sweating – some guys also find that they sweat more, this is because when driven by hormonal activity your aprocine glands tend to produce sweat – the more testosterone – the more sweat these glands can produce.
Choosing A Good Natural Testosterone Booster
Naturally choosing the right testosterone boosters is crucial… and the key here is ingredients…
There are many natural compounds found in numerous T-boosting products that actually have very little or no clinical testing behind them….
Its crucial to make sure that you use a product that has a clinically approved formula – or at very least contains tried and tested ingredients..
That way you will be sure to experience the right results without the disappointment of spending your hard earned cash on a product that doesn’t work.
Safe and Effective Ingredients To Look Out For
Try and choose a supplement that contains preferably all, or at least most of these compounds:
- Magnesium } These 3 are often grouped together as ‘ZMA’
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Ashwagandha (KSM-66)
- D-Aspartic Acid
- Oyster Extract
- Vitamin D3
- Stinging Nettle
- Siberian Ginseng
- Mucuna Pruriens
These above most others are all highly effective and most importantly are safe…
The ‘forms’ or types are also crucial, as an example, the ‘citrate’ form of Magnesium, Zinc and Boron are more bioavailable and far more effective than other types used in many supplements.
Ingredients To Avoid
There are literally hundreds of ingredients found in every day T-boosting supplements.. many are ineffective and some are potentially harmful.
3 examples are:
DHEA – commonly used in T-boosters…
DHEA is actually banned by the world doping association and in many countries is only available strictly on a doctors prescription..
It has been linked to Prostate problems – even cancer
Licorice – Appearing in more and more products than ever – not harmful per se, but tests have proven that it can actually LOWER testosterone production
Bulbine Natalensis ( AKA Prolensis) – Research has shown that it can be toxic to both the liver and kidneys – take with caution
