Many men experience a drop in testosterone levels as they age. This can lead to undesirable side effects such as decreased energy, libido, strength, and muscular endurance.

Recently, a number of over-the-counter supplements have begun popping up, advertising that they can naturally raise testosterone levels. These supplements promise higher testosterone levels by taking one tablet per day. No prescription required. Sound too good to be true? That’s because it is.

Over the Counter Testosterone Boosters Are Not Safe!

Many of these over-the-counter testosterone supplements are not regulated by the Food & Drug Administration, leaving room for questionable ingredients. In fact, many of these supplements may not even contain what they claim.

Contrary to their advertisements, these supplements may actually do more harm than good, according to Healthline. Recent studies have found correlations between the use of testosterone supplements and heart problems, including heart attacks.

What Should You Do if You Suffer from Low Testosterone?

If you suffer from low testosterone, your best option is to seek help from a local hormone replacement clinic. These centers use safe treatment options that are clinically proven to boost testosterone levels – something that cannot be said about over the counter supplements.
