Nugenix Reviews

( 13 reviews )

Nugenix is a dietary supplement intended to address men’s decreasing testosterone levels caused by aging. 

It's a male enhancement ingestible supplement that the company states can be used to form lean muscle mass, increase libido and increase stamina.

How Does it Work?

Testosterone is a hormone that naturally declines with age.  For men, the decrease of this hormone in their body can cause major changes in their overall well-being.

Typically these levels start to decrease at around the age of 30 and it is a normal part of the biological aging process.

The capsules are composed of a propriety blend of vitamins, minerals and herbal extracts; the main ingredient is Testofen which contains 50% Fenuside from the Fenugreek plant.

GNC makes Nugenix so it is sold at their physical locations or online at the GNC website or directly on the Nugenix website.

Nugenix Side Effects

Some side effects may occur when taking any testosterone boosting supplements, especially if they are taken in excess or if you are already at a healthy level of testosterone.

Two side effects that you may not physically feel is the decrease of glucose in the blood stream and change in the production of thyroid hormones. Other side effects physically felt are a racing heartbeat and rapid breathing.

Some men submitted reviews online claiming that Nugenix did not work.  These men felt that the supplement was only providing a feeling similar to that of what one would experience with increased testosterone levels.

Other men felt the pills were overpriced and were not worth the money for the minimal results they got out of the product.

Cost & Price Plans

A bottle of Nugenix contains 90 capsules (a one month supply) and costs $69.99.  The company states they offer a 30-day money back guarantee; they accept empty bottles for a full refund.

If you go through the Nugenix website you may be eligible for a 14-day free sample bottle.  If you qualify, you must provide a credit card payment for the $4.95 shipping and handling fee.

If you do not cancel the automatic shipment program that begins 18 days after you sign up for the trial, you will be charged $69.99 each month for a new supply.

Is Nugenix Legit?

Since there have been no clinical studies for Nugenix, there are no specified time periods in which one could expect to start seeing results.  

Nugenix is a temporary solution to help men with low testosterone levels and the company believes that it will make men feel more confident and full of life.

Always consult a physician before taking supplements that affect hormones. A simple blood test can tell you where your levels are at.

A doctor may be able to prescribe something that is less expensive or even covered by insurance. 

It's also safer for a doctor to regulate your hormones because they can monitor you and keep your levels stable.

Stay away. Product doesn't work, they are just going for the $75 auto bill revenue then move on to the next sucker.

Nugenix is NOT made by GNC.

I am a 56 year old male.

The reviews I have seen so far are from those who have not been taking it properly.

The dose is 3 capsules a day on an empty stomach. That's 3 capsules in the MORNING (or whenever you wake up).

I have only been taking it for a few weeks and I feel great!

I think it stands to reason that if you're not taking something properly, you won't see the intended results.

I ride a recumbent trike almost daily, and I've noticed that I am gaining muscle mass.

As with any nutritional supplement, diet and exercise are extremely important. I actually developed a craving for fresh fruits along with riding, and a visit to my in house fitness center.

Does NOTHING for me!

I am a 54 year old male dating a woman 14 years younger than me. She's a dynamo in bed and I struggle to keep up. I noticed my libido is not what it once was. Had a low-T test done and my levels were a bit low. Decided to go with an over-the-counter supplement and tried Nugenix. Gave it 3 months (just to give it an honest chance) -- NOTHING!! It's overpriced and was a complete waste of money. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY on this scam of a product. I will be visiting my doctor again and getting the real deal.

I recieved their free trial and then they tried to charge my credit card $49.99...I had no idea of this automatic renewel....BE CAREFUL

I am in Chronic Pain. Yes, pain! Nugenix helps Chronic Pain!
September 2, 2014

I was in an accident in June 1999... I got by with cannabis and PRN break-through opiates.... Over the years, with my 3-trades I excel in #1) Medical field as a male CNA in Hospitals! Nursing homes are cruel and unusual punishment to humans!

#2) CDL Class A with *All endorsements Truck driver.

#3) Warehouseman... Have a gift for old-school manual pallet-jacks, and excel in all power-operated warehouse machines! From fork-lift to scissor-lifts....

So, as a hard-working blue-collar man, I always pushed harder and desired to be the best! Which the pain medications helped me have the stamina to accomplish!

All was well, I was never without work and jobs called me "due to the clean CDL with hazmat, tanker, duals, passenger, and miles and good references from all ex-bosses"...

My passion was for the medical field out of all three, and if I knew math, I would have went full out for an R.N. job.. But being a CNA on a Pediatric and Oncology floor was awesome...

Long story short. I kept seeing (this is 8 years later from accident) which my zeal for being the best began to catch up with me..

I increased my pain-killers to make life doable, and finally ended up in a rut of crippling pain!... So seeing all these adds, and researching what low-testosterone affected in my body..

In desperation I got the free-trial "the prices I read on this page?" Were $20 cheaper from manufacturer if I had a monthly plan!..

It did not do too much for the sex-drive which I was not attempting to get anyway. But the fog from pain-meds, and the immobility brought me to *Anything that may help!

I got these baby's and it was a whole new life (for me).. I was more clear-headed. Being an introvert and a man who avoided confrontation, I was well pleased in less than a week! *(I am a natural-supplement taker through research and trial and error) So, something I did not have to visit a doctor for, was appealing!...

Since the last 3 years of taking this, I have had days to where I did not even need pain meds! Which is HUGE for my circumstance as I am 41 years old now....

(back to introvert/non-social guy) I noticed a very significant't change in those areas!.. And had energy to do things and move.

I am a conspiracy theorist, so of course I thought the free bottle had more jazz, to get me to order more... But it was the same strength!.. They have a trippy musky scent, but that scent you know will do your body well!..

So, if you have made it thus far, and you have pain/pains, and are feeling sluggish more often "they MAY help you!... Being a supplement taker, I know every body responds differently to differently to any substance!

*But I became a much more assertive and confident man. The little stuff did not bother me (although it can cause mild rage "easily snuffed out if wise!")... It is and continues to be a nice help... *Oh the prices and conspiracy guy I am, I stocked up!... Now prices are higher, and I am not on the monthly lock! Hope some part of this helped!....

Not worth trying this Testosterone because of the other ingredients in this supplement!

Isn't silicon dioxide mentioned in this article: 18 Most Sickening Food Ingredients,,20588763_14,00.html ?

Did not notice any change.
August 14, 2013
Complete placebo as for as I'm concerned.

My result
April 19, 2013
At 64, I had no notable effect.

AAAAd June 01, 2013

The free offer is an excuse to get your ATM or credit card number. Then, every month the company mails you a full bottle and takes $55 out of your account. I could never find this agreement in the fine print, but customer service says its there.

"Yes" a simple blood test will tell you about your Testosterone level. Then why has Nugenix not run such tests! Obviously this is a scam or else this company could easily run clinical tests!

Wanna know what works?
April 8, 2013

I'll tell you what works. GO TO A MEDICAL DOCTOR!! Get your blood work done, including testosterone levels. If it's low your doctor can and will prescribe testosterone replacement patches or gel. They contain the real deal and they WORK. Plain and simple.

Forget about wasting your money on this New-Genie X with fenuside . As with most (if not all) supplements, this too, is a scam. Just because you feel like a loser doesn't mean you have to be one.

I gave this one star only because zero is not acceptable. You'd be better off just eating the bottle the crap comes in.

It does work for me
April 2, 2013

It works! I am a 54 year male and a personal trainer for 30 years.. And I DO NOT work for nor am I affiliated with Nugenix in anyway other than buying their product as a consumer.

I first heard of Nugenix two months ago when I was offered a free sample while on a fitness website that I frequent.I figured that I would give it a try and see what the results are. After two months? It works.

I am a person that has a lot of stress in and around my life and my cortisol levels were through the roof and my testosterone was way down because of it. My muscles were breaking down even after working out they didn’t have the density and mass they once had. I was getting softer and softer by the month.

Of course my age and other variables played a major roll in the decline of the way my body was breaking down muscle fiber etc,however, after using this product for two months, I am convinced that it works! I have had an incredible turn around in my energy levels when at the gym and as far as libido? Well, the jury is still out on that one.. I am deciding if it has increased it or maintained it but I am sure that it works for rebuilding stamina and strength.

By the way, I do not believe that Nugenix works for me, ONLY because I want it to.. It has worked and I definitely believe that it has given me back what I lost and I will go on record saying so as I just did.

It may not work for everyone because of their own personal genetics and diet regiment, but there is no doubt in my mind if it works or not. As far as I concerned no further studies need to be conducted to convince me that it works.

AAAAd June 01, 2013

Why didn't you get a simple Testosterone test before and then weeks after. then you would avoid the placebo effects and have real facts. i'm 68 ans still workout 3 time a week and am 10 kilos heavier than my collegiate wrestling weight. Nugenix caused me to loos my taste!

Complete lack of ethics
March 27, 2013

This company is a scam from the word go. It is not honest about its policies or how they work. They say that you are getting a 14 day supply (30 capsules) but the recommended dosage is 3x per day (a 10 day supply). They say that you are given 18 days to cancel, but you don't get your product for almost 20 days. So, your auto ship program kicks in at $75/mo without the benefit of the time necessary to take and review the results.

There are too many components here to make this legitimate. Applied Perceptions in N. Carolina is a telemarketing firm that has no direct connection with Nugenix. Direct Digital actually owns Nugenix, but has no direct link to them except through the so-called manufacturing company located in Boston. It's almost impossible to get your money back or to cancel.

STAY AWAY from Nugenix and their advertising, unless you have money to throw away.

Scam Scam Scam
March 10, 2013
I agreed to pay the $5 shipping charge to receive the FREE bottle of this Nugenix... I did pay that $5, but was also charged $74.98 unknowingly. Now I am trying to get in touch with the customer service people, which is virtually impossible, and I seriously doubt I will find any resolution with this company. All of this is secondary to the fact that I have NOT noticed ANY difference while taking these pills. NONE!! Good Luck to anyone that attempts to get this product. IT IS A SCAM!!!!

william miller November 14, 2015

Yes, Nugenix is a scam. They explain they need to charge $4.95 for a trial to avoid being abused by customers, but they really want your credit card info so they can abuse the customer. In the fine print of terms and services is an explanation of their auto pay policy which requires you to pay an ongoing $70 per month for 30 capsules. Supposedly you can contact their customer service and cancel the autopay. Good luck with that. I deactivated my credit card to prevent Nugenix from scalping me. And, the crap don't work.

Testofen Studies
January 22, 2013
Nugenix contains Testofen, which is a patented fenugreek extract. With a little googling you can easily find the published studies on testofen which clinically show a boost in free testosterone

BIG A March 31, 2013

Of course, I always let Google speak for me too -- instead of me trying it myself and giving my own opinion. Remember, Google is your friend.

Scientific backing?
January 16, 2013

I see no scientific study results for this product. Where are they? Where does it compare the product with a placebo?

It says it's a mix of "herbs, minerals and vitamins". Specifically what is supposed to make any difference? Pretty much every vitamin is covered by the average diet, and supplements are dirt cheap. Minerals are much the same story. We buy herbs dirt cheap too, so what's so special about this product?

Anthed January 22, 2013

The sales of pills must truly be a multi-million dollar operation. How did humanity survive prior to all these pills? I think 99% of all pills are about feel good stories and promise and hope. We have become a country of pill popping maniacs. I see nothing about this pill that is credible. No science. No objective testing. Caveat emptor.

Shawn January 28, 2013

this company is a fraud. I was fooled to order the 14 day supply. keep getting charged 74.98 and although called them to cancell and get the credit back, they keep refering me to the post office.

Shawn January 28, 2013

this is a scam . no proof and no study. another way to take peoples money

Steve January 29, 2013

I've tried it and have seen no positive results...I'm trying to return the last five bottles they keep sending me.

Jackie February 20, 2013

Good luck, Steve. We are still trying to return one bottle. We called Nugenix, got an RMA number and sent the package back as a refused package through USPS. The first call to Nugenix was received by a "Henry" who said that Nugenix had received our package and we should receive a refund in a "couple of days". After an additional week, we called back and spoke to two other representatives, i.e. "Alex", and a woman who said they have no record of receiving the package and even though we were given an RMA number they cannot track the package. It may be in their warehouse, but there's no way they would know. "Sometimes, they are never found", a female rep told us. It just seems like a real ripoff to me. Package was returned on February 4, 2013.
