In this review we are going to take a look at Nature’s Plus as a company, then we’ll look at the claims they make about T-Male.
After that we’ll examine the ingredients list, analyse the customer reviews on Amazon, and finally we’ll give you our uncensored, honest opinion about T-Male.
So, let’s get started, shall we?
Quick Review: T Male has some good ingredients for a testosterone booster but it’s average at best.
Unless you have severely low testosterone you probably won’t see many benefits from this.
There are definitely better test boosters for sale.
Nature’s Plus Company Review
Founded in the 1970s by Gerald Kessler, Nature’s Plus is one of the oldest supplement companies still in business.
Kessler died in 2015 leaving behind an $800 million fortune and a whole host of tabloid intrigue after his family and wife contested the will .
Gerald Kessler was a big name in the industry, and fought hard against government intervention in the supplement industry.
It’s hard to say whether his arguments were right or wrong, but he successfully prevented the FDA from being able to regulate supplements in 1994, claiming that his products were food rather than drugs.
This helped the supplement industry to grow massively over the next few years, but it also led to less transparency, which is still a big issue.
For example, the supplement we are looking at today uses proprietary blends.
Mixtures of ingredients which do not provide individual dosages on the ingredients list.
This makes it almost impossible for anyone to decide whether the product is effective or not.
Kessler’s win has made it easier for proprietary blends to exist, if the FDA had been able to regulate supplements then the proprietary blend may have become extinct (and when it finally is a lot of supplement reviewers will dance in the street!).
Nature’s Plus is a massive company and sells a huge variety of supplements.
You may or may not have heard of them, but now that you have you’ll probably start seeing their products everywhere.
The first, and possibly boldest claim that T-Male makes is that it “is a revolutionary supplement”.
We know that most supplement companies use sentences like this without thinking twice, but after looking at the product it’s hard to say that there’s anything revolutionary about it at all.
Some fairly standard ingredients, maybe a couple of them are out of left field, but nothing jaw droppingly different!
The main claim by Nature’s Plus about T-Male is that it supports healthy testosterone production.
So far, so good.
It then points out that testosterone has many benefits: strength, endurance, stamina, vitality, energy etc …
This is quite clever.
Nowhere does Nature’s Plus say that their supplement provides these benefits, but they make it clear that it supports testosterone production … which happens to provide the benefits.
We have nothing against that, it is a smart, and for the most part honest approach.
If this supplement does support testosterone production, then these claims are perfectly reasonable.
T-Male Ingredients List
T-Male contains not one, but two proprietary blends!
Meaning that a lot of ingredients do not have accurate dosages.
Meaning that they could be perfectly dosed, over-dosed, or (more likely) under-dosed.
This is very irritating, but quite common in the supplement world.
We’ll review the ingredients anyway, but always remember that without the dosage it’s impossible to say whether a supplement will work or not.
- ZMA: They don’t specifically say that they have ZMA but if you look at the ingredients there is Zinc, Magnesium, and Vitamin B6. These three ingredients are often sold as a supplement called ZMA. There is evidence that people who exercise at a high intensity can become deficient in zinc, which can then lead to reduced testosterone production. A 2007 study found that exercise can actually decrease testosterone levels, but taking zinc prevented that . If you aren’t deficient in zinc then you will see no difference in testosterone, but overall this is a great supplement ingredient.
- Calcium: Nature’s Plus claims that calcium is used by the body to generate testosterone, but this is definitely up for debate. There was one study on humans (there was also a rat study) where subjects took 35mg/kg of calcium daily for up to four weeks. The study found no differences in testosterone levels .
- Fenugreek Extract: Many studies have failed to find any effect of Fenugreek extract on testosterone production , but one study did . It definitely seems to have an effect on libido though.
- Tribulus Terrestris: This ingredient is the main ingredient in their proprietary blend, it also contains turmeric, ginseng, garlic extract, and several other ingredients. Tribulus Terrestris absolutely does NOT increase testosterone production . Like Fenugreek it also enhances libido.
T-Male also contains another proprietary blend called ViNitrox which contains apple and grape extract. Apparently, they contain polyphenols that fight the peroxynitrate free radicals. If you are scratching your head right now then join the club!
We’re going to be very un-scientific here and say:
If apple and grape extracts were so effective at increasing testosterone production, then why aren’t other companies doing it.
Probably a load of rubbish.
T Male Reviews on Amazon
Out of 112 reviews, T-Male has a score of 3.6 out of 5. 44% of the reviews are 5 stars, while 17% of the reviews are 1 star.
As always, a lot of reviewers say they notice a difference, while others claim that it doesn’t work.
But testosterone boosters aren’t like film reviews.
You can’t just take them and then decide whether you like them or not.
You need to have your testosterone levels checked before and after taking them to see whether they work or not.
Or you can do what we have and review the ingredients list.
But just taking them for a month and deciding that you feel good or don’t see any difference is very un-scientific.
How would you know if it was working or not?
It definitely will boost your libido which can make people think that it is working.
But a high sex-drive does not mean that your testosterone levels are high.
Particularly when a supplement is stuffed full of libido-enhancing ingredients.
Final Thoughts On T Male
This is a decent testosterone supporting supplement.
But it does not do anything revolutionary.
ZMA is a good supplement, and it’s nice to see that T-Male contains it.
The fenugreek extract may come in handy.
And Tribulus Terrestris could be helpful (though the evidence appears to be leaning toward ineffective).
This testosterone support supplement will do the job if you are already suffering with low testosterone.
It will be a decent supplement for people exercising hard, though a ZMA supplement would be cheaper and as effective.
There are better products out there, with proper dosages, better ingredients, and a smarter blend.
If you have a bottle then don’t worry, it should work.
But if you are about to buy it then we’d say save your money – there are better options.
(If you’ve used T Male then let us know in the comments if it worked for you!)
