IMO, stay away from testosterone supplements. I am just not a fan of them especially when one does not have consistency and discipline within their diet and exercise program, and these alone are causing complication within their goal want.

Instead stay focused on the ultra powerful and tried true formula, and one that you will never have question in whether it will improve your overall health and "total" hormone production: Diet and Exercise.

Trust me the prescriptions the body writes for its self will serve you, and at the same time be your enemy, dependent on how you are manipulating your diet and training program.

You take all the time "necessary" to learn how to manipulate the macros and calories within your diet, until you have a thorough understanding, and this alone will serve far more in the life span of your goal want.

Once you have a thorough understanding on how to manipulate calories/macros, and the basic mechanics of weight training, and have learned how to manipulate yourself to be consistent in the efforts needed to bring about goal-progress, then maybe, look for a so-called testosterone booster. Because, without the aforementioned, the so called booster, will be virtually worthless. Very few really understand the power that lies in manipulating the contents of diet and their training program according to their goal desires. This is the true real power, and not from a OTC product.

A well balanced diet in calories, macros, and micro nutrients, will serve your purposes. Do not be afraid of consuming a moderate amount of cholesterol, and some saturated fats.
