What You Should Know
Androbulk is a supplement from Primordial Performance that claims to increase bulk or muscle mass. The supplement is not for the dieter looking to lose weight. None of the ingredients will increase weight loss or metabolism. However, Primordial Performance and some bodybuilders claim the formula is one of the strongest on the market – for its category. Of course, there is no clinical proof for any of the product claims on the official website, but there is a long warning about who shouldn’t take the supplement.
Androbulk is one of the most expensive supplements we have ever reviewed. This product sells for $220 for slightly less than 60 servings. That adds up to more than $100 per month. That is a huge price to pay for a supplement that doesn’t bother to support claims with clinical research.

Androbulk contains two sources of DHEA and quite the grapefruit juice punch. If you are taking prescription medications, it is important to note the grapefruit juice can reduce the absorption of some medications. Talk to your doctor about the potential side effect before taking Androbulk. There is also mention that the supplement may cause weight gain and infertility. These side effects should be taken into consideration.
DHEA, the main ingredient in the supplement, is considered a steroid, but not the type of steroid that causes massive muscle growth. There are several proven benefits of DHEA, some of which are associated with weight loss and muscle growth. There have been a multitude of studies published on DHEA over the last 20 years and few have reported any real side effects, but there is a portion of the population that believes DHEA is dangerous. It is important to note that taking DHEA is illegal if you participate in organized sports and some competitions. For instance, Olympic athletes and professional athletes in the United States can be banned or suspended for using DHEA.
- Clinical support exists for using DHEA for various health concerns.
- No serious side effects are proven.
- The strength of DHEA may be weaker than product descriptions claim.
- DHEA requires a prescription in some other countries.
- No dieter should take DHEA without consulting a physician.
DHEA may be an effective treatment for cardiovascular disease, lupus, reproductive health and memory. There is also some evidence that DHEA increases strength. Androbulk, however, doesn’t give the reader support like it should. When a product has been around as long as DHEA there is bound to be some clinical support and that is what the creators of Androbulk need to deliver to the bodybuilder looking to bulk up.
