Q.

Do testosterone boosters really work?

While many prescription treatments can increase those levels through injections or by topical aplication, they often cause the body to further reduce its own production, resulting in increasing dependance on the prescription.

 

Many testosterone boosters claim they can trigger your body to produce more testosterone naturally, and therefore not create a dependance.

 

Do these over the counter supplements really boost testosterone levels? If so, do they do it without further reducing natural production?

Personally, I think those "testosterone boosters" are worthless, but you have to make your own decision. Herbal and over-the-counter non-drug therapies do not have to prove effacacy in the same way of prescription drugs.

Hi Ask any company selling these and they will all say yes, they have to, they want you to buy them.

But just google this natural testosterone boosters and see how you get on, lots of help.

So how old are you, and are you having ED problems?
