Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster Review
You’ve no doubt come across supplements before that claim to be “physician formulated”. They usually pop up on late-night infomercials. They are almost always incredibly shady. Typically, if you do some digging, you find that the “physician” involved in formulation is actually a chiropractor or a ‘homeopathic’ expert.
But Physician Formulated in this case is actually the brand name! That’s right; the company is ‘Physician Formulated’.
Is this a sneaky way of making the same garbage claims without actually making the claim itself?
Let’s find out!
Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster claims to be a natural testosterone support supplement.
It does explicitly claim to be “medical doctor certified”.
If we look at the bottle, we see that users are promised three key benefits:
- Muscle growth support
- Increased vitality, vigor and sexual function
- Promotes improved stamina and strength
These enhancements would all follow increased testosterone levels. It will be interesting to see if Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster delivers these benefits by increasing test levels or by treating the symptoms one-by-one, as some sub-standard stacks do.
That is assuming it works at all.
If we look at the advertisements that come with Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster, we see that this supplement is designed for pretty much everyone:
This isn’t just a bodybuilding supplement. It is positioned as the all-round supplement for boosting performance through promoting testosterone production.
So, there’s just one question left to ask: does it really work?
Is Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster legit?
Is it safe?
How does Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster compare to other stacks on the market right now?
You can find answers to all of these questions in our full Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster review below. We have written a short summary at the end in case you’re short on time. Please post any feedback in the comments section.
Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster Formula
Here is the Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster formula as it is displayed on the product’s label:
This is definitely a unique formula as far as we’re aware.
We have never come across this exact formulation before. There are plenty of interesting ingredients here that bear talking about.
Right off the bat though, we can tell you our general impression of this stack.
On the whole, this formula is far too full of problems for us to recommend it to anybody.
The main ingredients (those with the biggest doses) have been shown to have limited use when it comes to actually boosting testosterone levels in the blood.
It also contains one ingredient, DHEA, which is not a natural substance at all: it is actually an exogenous human sex hormone.
That’s right: Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster CONTAINS HUMAN SEX HORMONES!
This means that it carries enormous side effect risks relative to genuinely natural testosterone boosters.
DHEA is a major problem as far as we’re concerned; it is unpredictable and can cause very high estrogen levels. More on this later.
Where Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster does provide good ingredients with potential for testosterone support, the doses are too low to have any effect at all.
On the whole, this is a seriously flawed supplement.
But don’t just take our word for it. Let us explain all of this in greater detail.
Since the only good ingredients are dosed very low in Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster, we can’t see any reason to do a standalone “benefits” section.
But we will start with the good ingredients.
Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster contains ingredients like Boron and D-Aspartic Acid.
These ingredients have the potential to significantly increase natural testosterone production, as well as preserving T levels in the blood right now.
However, in order to have any effect, they need to reach a minimum effective dose.
Consuming an extra 50mg of D-AA per day is not going to have any impact on your testosterone production at all. At amounts that low, the body wont even notice it.
So it is with Boron; 1mg is about 20% of what we look for in a serious testosterone support supplement.
At this level, it is unlikely that Boron will be able to do its job; binding with SHBG and preventing it from killing your testosterone availability.
This is a major issue.
A much more serious issue, however, is the heavy use of completely useless ingredients.
Generally speaking, the ingredients with the largest doses in Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster have been resoundingly shown to be useless when it comes to elevating T levels in humans.
Take Tribulus terrestris.
Yes, a good extract has been used here.
But unfortunately, clinical trials have found that TT has no discernible effect on free serum testosterone availability.
No effect whatsoever.
Many people may claim it helps them “feel” more energized, or it “seems” to reduce recovery time, but the science just isn’t there.
It’s the same story with Horny Goat Weed.
There are plenty of blogs claiming that this stuff can skyrocket your testosterone production.
Yet in terms of hard clinical data, there’s nothing.
We only have hearsay backing up Horny Goat Weed, which to us is as god as nothing.
The use of bogus, unproven ingredients is not a problem unique to Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster, but it is very prevalent in this stack.
Yet even this is not the most serous problem with this supplement.
The use of DHEA is, without question, our main concern here.
DHEA is a human sex hormone.
In using Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster, you are consuming exogenous human steroid hormones.
You are literally consuming an androgenic hormone orally; the most dangerous, hepatoxic way of taking on extra hormones.
Instead of continuing our discussion here, it is best if we talk more about DHEA in the context of wider discussion of side effects.
Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster Side Effects
The chance of experiencing side effects from Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster is very high compared to other stacks.
The chance that you will experience quite severe side effects from using Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster is alarmingly high for a supplement that markets itself as safe and natural – neither of these adjectives apply to this supplement in our opinion.
As outlined above, DHEA is an exogenous human sex hormone. It is a human hormone that occurs naturally in the body, but here it has been produced in a lab and put into orally consumable form.
If consuming lab-made human hormones orally sounds like a good idea to you, then read this carefully!
First of all, consuming any kind of exogenous hormone orally places enormous stress on the liver and kidneys.
This is why bodybuilders using any kind of AAS use serious on-cycle support if also using an oral steroid. It is just necessary since the hormone must pass twice through the liver for processing.
Secondly, DHEA is not a predictable hormone to put into your body from external sources.
DHEA should be thought of as more of a base sex hormone in humans.
It converts into either testosterone or estrogen depending on the body’s needs. That means that consuming excess DHEA could easily result in your estrogen levels spiking.
The consequences of this can be pretty serious:
- Decreased muscle mass
- Increased fat mass
- Male breast tissue growth
This list is not exhaustive, but it gives you a flavor of what messing around with DHEA can do for you.
Other than DHEA, there isn’t a lot else that gives us cause for concern in Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster.
That said, there are some concerns that Tribulus terrestris may have long-term effects if used frequently.
More research is needed here but since it is a pretty useless ingredient, why take the risk?
Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster Review Summary
All things considered, this is a pretty terrible testosterone support supplement.
If you’ve read our whole Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster review, then you’ll know we have three main problems:
- DHEA is a human sex hormone; it has unpredictable effects and is inherently dangerous to consume orally
- The main ingredients have never shown any effect on test levels in clinical trials
- The handful of good ingredients are dosed so low that they may as well not be here at all
Any one of these flaws would be enough for us to tell you to keep looking.
Together, they combine to make a pretty disastrous supplement.
We don’t think Physician Formulated Testosterone Booster is going to be able to give you the results you’re looking for. If you want serious results, use a serious, professional-quality testosterone booster.
If you think you have a serious problem with testosterone production or high estrogen conversion, talk to a physician today.
