Mancore Testosterone Replenish Reviews

mancore testosterone replenish

Each day, men over 30 lose more and more testosterone. Less testosterone results in less muscle mass, libido, and energy. Testosterone boosters, however, promise to raise testosterone and make you feel young again.

New to the testosterone market, Mancore’s Testosterone Replenish claims to outperform the competition by giving you more testosterone than you know what to do with.

Is Testosterone Replenish the new fountain of youth or is it just another limp, ineffective supplement?

Who Makes It?

Mancore Products, including Testosterone Replenish, are manufactured and sold exclusively by Complete Nutrition. This brick and mortar health supplement chain is located across North America. The company was founded in 2004 and currently produces and sells more than 200 products.

Complete Nutrition enjoys Better Business Bureau accreditation with only two complaints filed against them in the last three years.[1] In an industry where deception is rampant, Complete Nutrition looks like a solid, reputable company.

What Are the Ingredients?

To boost your testosterone levels, Testosterone Replenish provides eight natural and potent ingredients.

Zinc (7.5 mg) is essential to cellular metabolism by boosting enzyme activity, supporting immune functions, and synthesizing proteins.[2] Various studies have been done to determine what connection, if any, zinc has on testosterone but results vary.

Tribulus terrestris is a natural ingredient found in many testosterone boosters. While many people claim it boosts testosterone, clinical studies find the ingredient has no noticeable effect.[3]

White button mushroom boosts free testosterone levels by blocking enzymes that transform testosterone into estrogen.[4]

Long jack root, also known as tongkit ali, has been used to enhance libido in Asian countries for centuries. Many recent clinical studies on the ingredient show it does improve libido and performance in rats.[5] It’s unknown how the ingredient affects testosterone levels in human males.

Cordyceps sinensis. Recent studies found this mushroom increases testosterone levels in mice.[6] It’s unclear how this ingredient affects men, as there have been no human studies.

Stinging nettle leaf is a proven testosterone booster. It protects free testosterone by stopping sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) from binding with testosterone.[7] This allows more free testosterone to remain in the system, thereby boosting drive and energy.

Bee propolis is made from honey bee secretions. In addition to its strong antioxidant properties, bee propolis was shown to raise testosterone levels in animals.[8] However, studies of its effect on human males is lacking.

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) (25 mg) is a hormone produced in the adrenal glands. It functions as a precursor to male and female hormones. Clinical studies show that DHEA supplements increase testosterone levels.[9]

Testosterone Replenish’s formula, with its various effective ingredients, has a lot of potential. But because most of the ingredients are listed in a blend, it’s difficult to tell whether the total formula is actually effective.

Are There Side Effects?

Many of Testosterone Replenish’s ingredients can cause negative side effects if taken in high dosages. My greatest concern is with DHEA which can cause hair loss and high blood pressure. Since DHEA is part of a blend, it’s difficult to determine exactly how much of it is in Testosterone Replenish.

Also, some of the other ingredients can cause stomach pains, nausea, and profuse sweating.

Complete Nutrition could alleviate concerns over side effects by listing the individual dosage of each ingredient.

How Do You Use It?

For best results, take two capsules a day. Take one capsule 15-30 minutes before breakfast. Then take one capsule 15-30 minutes before dinner.

Make sure to drink at least 8 ounces of water with each dose.

User Reviews

Reading user reviews is one of the best methods to determine whether a product actually works or not. User reviews become even more important when health products use blends. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any online user reviews on Testosterone Replenish.

How Much Does It Cost?

Testosterone Replenish is sold exclusively at Complete Nutrition stores across North America. The price may vary with the location.

Currently, Complete Nutrition is not selling Testosterone Replenish online.

Money-Back Guarantee

Unfortunately, Complete Nutrition does not back Testosterone Replenish, or any of its products, with any sort of guarantee.

Final Thoughts

Testosterone Replenish has great ingredients, but ultimately I can’t recommend it. There are too many red flags surrounding this product. First, most of the ingredients are listed in a blend making it difficult to determine its total effectiveness. The blend also hides the individual dosage of ingredients known to cause negative side effects.

Also, I was disappointed that Complete Nutrition doesn’t back the product with a guarantee and with the lack of user reviews.

In sum, Testosterone Replenish could be a winner but I suggest not trying it until there are actual user reviews on its effectiveness and safety. In the meantime, there are many effective and safe testosterone boosters to choose from.
