Today we have Nugenix Total T review for you. In this review, we’ll see if Nugenix Total T holds up to its manufacturer claims; specifically, we’ll check if Nugenix Total T will improve your energy levels, libido, muscle growth and other benefits that come from having higher testosterone levels – starting with a short review summary.
[NUGENIX TOTAL T KEY TAKEAWAYS]
- Natural formula
- 90 capsules per bottle
- Contains the trace mineral boron which is great for testosterone
- Zinc is also effective at improving T levels but Nugenix Total T only has 1mg, while the optimal dose is 10-20mg
- The rest of the formula is ineffective at raising testosterone levels safely
- Several ingredients that help boost libido and sexual function
- Fenugreek sacrifices DHT in order to maintain higher T levels, which can mess with your hormonal balance
- Lack of core ingredients, including vitamin D, magnesium, and Ashwagandha
- Our test levels didn’t change significantly after supplementation; though our libido and muscle pumps increased
- Costs $60+ per bottle (30 servings), which is more expensive than even the current top-rated test boosters
What is Nugenix Total T?
Nugenix Total T is a natural testosterone booster supplement. It consists of vitamins, minerals, and herbal extracts that have evidence showing they may support your natural anabolic hormones as well as libido and virility. This makes Nugenix Total T a safe, legal (and more affordable) alternative to synthetic compounds, steroids or TRT.
However, Nugenix also uses some ineffective ingredients, with a few of them being underdosed, too.
Below we’ll check Nugenix serving directions and ingredient studies to see how it will work for you.
Nugenix Total T: Dosage Directions
Nugenix Total T dosage is 3 capsules per day with or without food. If you find you have a particularly sensitive stomach, you may want to take it with food to avoid cramps and nausea.
Something else we have to mention. Having all 3 capsules in one serving is a simple way to take a testosterone booster, but is it the most effective way? It’s not!
The best T boosters have 3 or 4 daily servings to maintain the effects between the doses. By contrast, a single serving leaves you deprived of beneficial effects as it wears off after a few hours.
Ingredients in Nugenix Total T
- Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride) (2mg)
- Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) (2.4mg)
- Zinc Chelate (1mg)
- L-Citrulline Malate (2:1) (1125mg)
- Fenugreek Extract (600mg)
- elevATP Blend (Ancient Peat Extract and Apple Fruit Extract) (150mg)
- Euroycoma Longifolia “LongJack” (100mg)
- Boron (10mg)
The good thing about Nugenix Total T’s ingredient label is that it’s transparent. You can see every ingredient and its respective dose. In turn, this allows us to asses the overall efficacy and safety of the supplement.
Speaking of the efficacy, Nugenix Total T’s formula doesn’t look promising. Zinc is underdosed and the rest of the formula isn’t proven to be effective at raising the anabolic hormone. This product has more going in terms of libido boosting than anything else.
See for yourself:
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride)
Vitamin B6 is essential for many functions of our body, including mood regulation and nerve function. Vitamin B6 also aids your body in producing energy from food. It may help support testosterone levels if you’re deficient in this nutrient. 
Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin)
Vitamin B12 doesn’t boost testosterone, but it supports red blood cell function and oxygen transport throughout your tissues, which could help with erections and sexual function (again, only if you’re deficient in it). If you aren’t deficient, you won’t notice much benefit as your body is already getting the benefits through the diet. 
Zinc is one of our favorite ingredients in testosterone boosters. Not just because it promotes testosterone production, but also because it helps prevent drops in T levels.
In a study with elite athletes, those who trained really hard saw their testosterone levels drop due to physical stress. Meanwhile, the group that took zinc supplements retained their normal T levels even during high-stress training.  To reap zinc’s benefits, you should aim at 10-20mg per day. Nugenix Total T has a mere 1mg per serving.
Citrulline is the best pre-workout ingredient, but not a testosterone booster. The reason? Studies show that L-Citrulline raises nitric oxide (NO) levels, which enhances muscle pumps and blood flow. In theory, citrulline also may boost your erections, despite being ineffective for improving testosterone. 
Fenugreek is the one ingredient that can boost testosterone, but the way it does this is a bit controversial in the scientific community. See, in order to help your body make more testosterone, Fenugreek sacrifices another important anabolic hormone known as DHT. This, in turn, can lead to hormonal imbalances in the long-run. 
elevATP Blend (Ancient Peat Extract and Apple Fruit Extract)
This is a blend of two ingredients that have no purpose in testosterone boosting. Apple Fruit Extract is a source of quercitin, a natural antioxidant that support your body’s repair and regeneration processes. Ancient Peat Extract, on the other hand, is an understudied ingredient that is rumored to increase body’s energy levels. 
Euroycoma Longifolia “LongJack”
LongJack is an excellent choice for libido boosting specifically. It has been shown to enhance sex drive and performance without affecting testosterone.
Boron is the only ingredient in Nugenix Total T that has solid evidence showing it can boost testosterone levels without causing adverse side effects along the way.
Boron is a great choice. It’s a shame Nugenix Total T hasn’t included more ingredients of this caliber. 
Nugenix Total T Reviews and Testimonials
At the time of writing, Nugenix Total T has over 9367 reviews on Amazon. Its average score is 4.1/5 stars.
Most of the customer reviews look positive as far as performance and libido is concerned. Although there are a few reports of side effects, most reviews also didn’t show images or other concrete proof of their testosterone levels before and after using Nugenix Total T, so placebo plays a big part here too.
Our Experience with Nugenix Total T
John-Alexander and Gabriel trialed Nugenix Total T for 3 weeks, before and after which we measured our testosterone levels. We maintained the same lifestyle as usual, which included training in the gym 3 times per week, 1 day of sprinting, a paleo-mediterranean diet with an emphasis on lean meats and omega-3s, as well as trying to get 7-9 sleep every night (this one is always a big challenge for us!).
Summary of our report:
- John-Alexander’s T levels went from 19.9 nmol/dl to 20.1 nmol/dl
- Gabriel’s T levels went from 22.4 nmol/dl to 22.2 nmol/dl
- We both experienced an improvement in our erections and libido
- Slightly bigger muscle pumps in the gym (thanks to Citrulline)
- John-Alexander experienced chronic headaches throughout the trial, Gabriel did not
- Diarrhea was a common side effect when Nugenix Total T was taken on an empty stomach
- Our energy levels didn’t change
- Mood and confidence also remained the same
Overall, we’d say we didn’t experience much change from using Nugenix Total T, except for better muscle pumps and libido. If sex drive is your main concern, then this product should work well for you. It’s not the best for actual testosterone levels increase, in our experience at least.
Nugenix Total T contains safe ingredients and their doses are also within optimal limits. Some of the ingredients, including zinc, are actually underdosed, so you’re unlikely to get any effects from these at all.
Some customers complained about headaches from using Nugenix Total T (which was John-Alexander’s experience as well), but most users said they didn’t experience anything negative from using the supplement.
Cost, Where to Buy, and Other Things to Consider
Nugenix Total T is available to buy on the official website as well as on Amazon, at Walmart, Walgreens, and GNC. A 30-serving bottle of Nugenix Total T will cost you around $60, but the price can vary significantly depending on where you buy it.
Nugenix Total T Review: The Bottom Line
Nugenix Total T contains boron, LongJack, and a few other great ingredients that will boost your libido and sexual function. However, the name “Total T” is a bit misleading, because its lacking ingredients that would actually increase your testosterone – including the fundamental vitamin D, magnesium, and others.
As a result, we’d recommend Nugenix Total T for men who want to enhance their performance and overall vitality. If the high price doesn’t sound too bad then Nugenix Total T could be the right product for you.
But as far as mucle building, fat loss, mood enhancement and other benefits of testosterone elevation are concerned, Nugenix Total T is not the best supplement on the market right now.
