Marketing itself as a safe and legal alternative stronger substances is generally a trick of lower tier supplements. It’s hard to see how this under-dosed and ingredient-lacking testosterone booster will actually achieve its suggested claims. Indeed, it’s hard to see how Trenorol will do anything. We do not recommend this testosterone booster. Far from it, it’s one of the worst products we’ve seen in a while.
In addition to its laughable claim to be able to replicate the effects of hard compounds, Trenorol claims to be good for bulking and cutting. Most experts recommend very different ingredients for burning fat than for boosting testosterone and it’s unlikely that one product could easily combine the benefits of both (and, to be clear, Trenorol fails to do so).
While Trenorol doesn’t seem to be able to make its mind up about what it’s for, we can save you the effort of trying to figure it out and just advice against using it. It’s expensive and contains almost nothing beneficial. If you want to cut, get a dedicated fat burner. If you want to boost testosterone, get a good quality t booster with verified ingredients. We recommend looking for t boosters with ashwagandha, red ginseng, fenugreek, D-aspartic acid, and vitamins D, B6, and B12, among others.
The final thing that irks us about Trenorol is the price. It is normally sold for $79.99, a truly extortionate price considering it contains just four ingredients, none of which do what the product claims they will, and which amount to just over 1.2g per serving. For a comparison, take Testofuel : Testofuel contains over 2.5g per serving of verified testosterone-boosting ingredients and is sold for just $65. The choice is an obvious one.
With only 79 ratings on Amazon, we can’t say
that the reviews are sufficient to make a conclusion about customers thoughts
towards Trenorol. However, of those ratings, only 51% give it 5 stars, which is
pretty low even by testosterone booster standards.
Several of the customer reviews pointed out that the ingredients are not backed by science and said they felt absolutely no difference from taking Trenorol. Several of the more positive review, which had given four stars, admitted to not having even tried the product yet but were simply “hopeful” that it would work. Not exactly hard-hitting critical reviews…
The Trenorol ingredients are almost embarrassing. We can only assume that whoever designed this supplement knows almost nothing about testosterone production, muscle growth, or nutrition. Besides one ingredient (beta sitosterol) possibly preventing naturally produced testosterone from being converted into dihydrotestosterone, we have no idea why any of these ingredients are included in this supplement.
In addition, Trenorol has only four ingredients that amount to a pitiful 1275mg. Most quality testosterone boosters contain that much D-Aspartic acid alone, alongside at least seven or eight other ingredients. Based only on the price/weight ratio, Trenorol is a ripoff, and that’s not taking into account that the ingredients are pretty much useless. If you take that into account as well then some stronger language would be needed to describe this product.
Beta Sitosterol (600mg) - Beta sitosterol is most often used to treat high cholesterol levels and enlarged prostate. The is some evidence suggesting it may also be beneficial against heart disease. Some people have suggested that it might result in less testosterone being converted into dihydrotestosterone, which is why its beneficial for treating an enlarged prostate. However, we could not find a single study directly linking beta sitosterol to increased muscle growth, or even direct evidence that it increases testosterone levels.
Samento Inner Bark (300mg) - Also known as Cat’s Claw, this supplement is supposed to be good against arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer. None of these claims are well-supported by scientific studies and nowhere does it seem to be claimed that it boosts testosterone levels or increase testosterone production. We’re at a loss as to why this is included in bulk and cut health supplement.
Nettle Leaf Extract (300mg) - A good supplement for some conditions, such as arthritis and urinary issues, but again we’re confused as to why it is included in Trenorol. It is not linked to increasing testosterone levels, nor is it known to burn fat, build muscles, improve cardiovascular performance, or any of the other benefits we can normally attribute to ingredients included in a testosterone-boosting supplement.
Pepsin (75mg) - Pepsin is an enzyme found in the stomach that breaks down proteins. Perhaps its inclusion here can help the body make more of the protein you are consuming in your diet. Perhaps. But really, this ingredient seems pretty pointless and certainly won’t make up for how pointless all the other ingredients seem to be.
And that’s it, no more ingredients. It’s astonishing that CrazyBulk have the audacity to sell this under-dosed, four-ingredient product for $64.99—and that’s with a discount, normally it’s $79.99. It contains close to nothing and nothing that is actually useful or that will even come close to living up to its wild claim of being able to replicate the effects of the compounds attempts to copy.
Is it really any surprise that a testosterone booster that attempts to make the ridiculous claim of being nearly as effective as anabolics turns out to be junk? We think not. Crazy claims are nearly always coupled with terrible products. Everyone with any sense knows that natural testosterone boosters aren’t going to have the same effects, of course, they are not going to have anywhere near the same negative side effects either.
The truth is that effective and safe testosterone boosting requires carefully crafted products that use well-dosed natural ingredients backed by science, coupled with a well-planned workout routine and a healthy diet. It’s that simple.
Trenorol contains just four ingredients, none of which have been linked in any serious way to boosting testosterone. Nor are the ingredients linked to burning fat or cutting. We have to wonder, what on earth are CrazyBulk thinking by selling this product? And for $64.99! This is as expensive as some of the best testosterone boosters available. The testosterone boosters we have in mind contain up to 12 ingredients, totalling several grams of the product.
Given the terrible formula and extortionate price, we recommend choosing almost any other testosterone booster other than Trenorol. Our top pick currently is Testofuel, but there are many other products out there that are better than Trenorol.
