What You Should Know
TestroGel is manufactured by Klein Becker, who also manufacture a variety of holistic products. These are retailed at various discount websites and health food stores throughout the United States. TestroGel is a gel formula designed to enable males to increase their lean muscle mass, strength and endurance as well as sexual drive. This is an ‘andro’ product containing ‘prohormones’, which means that it contains steroidal hormones that can have intense side effects. Androstenedione and Progesterone are both present in its formula, and these ingredients make it a controversial supplement to use over the long term. The FDA has issued warnings against use of any andro products.

The makers of TestroGel claim that “TestroGel […] absorbs in seconds and goes to work immediately, raising androgen levels to give you (and your partner) the sexual confidence, stamina, and intensity it takes to truly satisfy.” Apart from increase in sexual drive, the product also promises increase in lean muscle mass and is directed towards body builders. A 2 oz. supply (containing about 20 applications) costs about $95. The makers of TestroGel claim that due to the topical application, this product is superior to other prosteroidal drugs due to the bypassing of the stomach by the drug (due to absorption through the skin). The makers claim that such direct absorption leads to wholesome transfer of testosterone into the body without breakdown into oestrogen (the female sex hormone), which they claim happens when the product is routed through the stomach. The use of TestroGel may result in a number of side effects. These include hair loss, headaches, dermatitis, acne, hypertension and prostate gland swelling.

TestroGel is advertised as a both male and female sexual drive enhancer and promises results fast. It claims the added benefit of increase of lean muscle mass and stamina in males. However, due to the presence of prohormones and androgens, it has adverse side effects and should not be used lightly. It is also not a cure for clinically proven sexually depressed individuals and should not be taken as such. Professional medical advice from a registered general practitioner should be sought when deciding on using TestroGel, so that you can be informed of all the possible concerns you must be acquainted with before taking a prosteroidal drug.
