Bioxgenic – the supplement company for men and women. The website throws off a fitness and bodybuilding vibe, and the products follow suit. When we took a quick look at the company, we noticed one of the women’s supplements contained the same ingredients as a male supplement. That piqued the interest of our research team.
The team set out to find all they could on Bioxgenic, supplements, ingredients, possible side effects and more. Here’s the bottom line on all our research.
Bioxgenic is a supplement company from MD Science Lab. According to the About page, the company has been around for more than two decades. The “mission has been to bring innovative and value-added lifestyle products to market for the natural products consumer.”
Typically we can get some sort of idea about a company with information like Bioxgenic before and after photos, but nothing of that sort is listed on the official website.
Company and Better Business Bureau
Bioxgenic doesn’t have a page on the Better Business Bureau website. The parent company is MD Science Lab, but there’s no page for that business either.
Unfortunately, we did find a page on the FDA website – a warning letter addressed to MD Science Lab. According to the letter, which was delivered on July 2014, an inspection of a facility in Florida failed to meet the guidelines for Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations. The company was cited for more than ten different infractions.
How do the ingredients in Bioxgenic supplements work to improve men’s health, vitality, strength and sexual prowess?
Maca root: Maca root, according to research in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, can help improve sexual dysfunction and desire in both men and women. The same study goes on to reveal an equal amount of research shows no sexual benefit.
Tribulus terrestris: Tribulus terrestris has been shown, based on research in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology, to improve libido in both men and women.
Possible Bioxgenic Side Effects
There are some potential side effects associated with some of the ingredients used in Bioxgenic supplements, including:
Increased heart rate
These side effects are not unique to Bioxgenic. Any products with the ingredients mentioned above have the potential to cause the same side effects.
Bioxgenic and Weight Loss
There is some evidence that one ingredient, eurycoma longifolia, may help improve weight loss. Eurycoma isn’t commonly used in weight-loss products; it’s often included in testosterone boosters and men’s vitality supplements.
Where to Buy
Where to Buy Bioxgenic
Bioxgenic supplements are available for sale on the official website, GNC and Amazon. On the day we checked, the prices for some supplements on GNC were upwards of $15 cheaper than the official website. We found the same with Amazon listings. The official website also claims CVS, Walgreens and Vitamin Shoppe also carry the supplements.
Pros and Cons
Pros and Cons
What did our research find was good and not so useful about Bioxgenic products and supplements?
The prices, though higher than we’d like, are comparable to similar supplements.
You can buy from GNC, Amazon and the official website.
The products aren’t revolutionary – rather generic.
Bottom Line on Bioxgenic
The Bioxgenic line is nothing new to the market. The supplements aren’t unique, and the ingredients used are common. That’s not to say all the products are worthless. There are some good formulas in there, so a consumer could do far worse. Overall, not a bad company and affordable prices.
