    Most of what's out there contains the following ingredients:

    Zinc, Magnesium, Vitamin B6, Tribulus terrestris, Aspartic Acid.

    What's your experience with this type of products?

    How safe are they?
    How well do they work?
    Is there a right and a wrong age to take this sort of supplements?
    How do you tell the good ones from the bad ones?

    Thank you for sharing! ;)

    To be honest - the better option for anyone concerned about testosterone levels would be to first visit their doctor - not only to get their levels checked - but more importantly to discuss whether the benefits of the treatment would outweigh the risks - particularly as some of the well known risks associated with any form of testosterone therapy are the possibility of - enlarged breasts, reduced fertility, blood clots, heart attacks, liver damage and an enlarged prostate.

    Also worth bearing in mind if planning to go down this route - is that the majority of medical professionals generally prefer - when its actually necessary to boost testosterone levels - to use the natural approach of a change in lifestyle habits rather than resort to medication - along with the fact that - as testosterone is a controlled substance in most countries - that can only be bought via prescription - it cannot be obtained OTC in any form - or put simply means - that as it is a controlled substance - no over-the-counter testosterone boosters can contain or claim to contain actual testosterone or a known testosterone derivative - the latter of which includes herbs and other so called natural substances.

    Which is why over-the-counter testosterone boosters are generally considered best treated with extreme caution - as apart from the fact that - although promoted with promises of restoring muscle mass, sexual function, and overall vitality - they're generally a waste of money - as none of the “ natural “ ingredients they contain are capable of actually increasing testosterone levels - but more importantly - the risks far outweigh any possible benefits - particularly as the majority of those “ natural “ ingredients have the potential to produce some extremely unpleasant side effects and particularly Tribulus Terrestris - which can also cause adverse effects and interactions when taken with many commonly prescribed medications.
