- Good serving of Fenugreek to support libido
- Most of the formula is ineffective for increasing testosterone
- Main ingredient - Tribulus Terrestris - has been thoroughly debunked!
- Massive price tag for such a poor formula
- No D-Aspartic Acid
- No aromatase inhibitor
We have absolutely no idea why Pronabolin has received such positive reviews. In our opinion, this is an under-powered, over-priced, ineffective testosterone booster. The main ingredient – Tribulus Terrestris – has been repeatedly and conclusively proven to be ineffective for increasing testosterone levels. It does nothing, and yet it is the primary ingredient in Pronabolin. It isn’t the only useless ingredient in here though; Pronabolin has several ineffective ingredients weighing down the formula, inflating the cost, all for nothing.
It contains none of the ingredients that most good quality, professional testosterone boosters use as staples. There’s no D-Aspartic Acid, no Mucuna Pruriens, no Vitamin D, no Ashwagandha, no Luteolin, no Zinc – nothing! This is one weak, disappointing formula. For such a hefty price tag, we expected more!
Our Pronabolin Review
Pronabolin is an extremely popular testosterone booster at the moment. It’s a little difficult to figure out who makes Pronabolin exactly. There doesn’t seem to be a larger company behind the product; whoever makes and sells this stack, it looks like it’s their only product. There are also multiple different websites presenting themselves as official merchants – you can order the product through these websites, and they have Pronabolin in their name. Since we don’t know which is the ‘official’ website, for this review we’ll be taking information from all over the internet.
So what does Pronabolin do?
Who is it marketed at?
The ‘official’ websites are light on details as to what this product actually does. However, one of the merchant sites lists the following benefits that users can apparently expect:
- Boost stamina and strength while supporting muscle production
- Increase libido and sexual performance
- Fight fatigue and increase energy levels
- Focus better and improve memory
- Lose that excess body fat around the midsection
- Increase Testosterone Safely and Effectively
- Pronabolin is formulated with all natural ingredients
- Ingredients are proven to boost testosterone levels
It’s obvious that Pronabolin is designed primarily with bodybuilders and athletes in mind. The websites use images of young, muscular guys, and most of the copy on the websites refer to increasing strength and muscular hypertrophy.
Of course, if a testosterone booster can help younger guys gain more muscle in the gym, then it can help older guys too; increased testosterone levels will have the same effects on your body, whether you’re 25 or 65. You’ll experience improved mood, increased strength, fat loss, and a sharp rise in sexual appetite.
Sure enough, the Pronabolin merchant sites make a lot of references to having low testosterone. It is implied that it is effective for restoring testosterone levels to what they were previously. So it is somewhat marketed at older guys too.
So, the question we need to answer is, does Pronabolin actually increase testosterone levels? Or does it simply tackle to symptoms of low testosterone? Does it even fight the symptoms?
To put it another way; does it really work?
How does it compare to the best natural testosterone boosters on the market today?

Let’s get straight to the meat. Here is the Pronabolin formula:
This is not a good formula at all.
The vast majority of the ingredients in Pronabolin are ineffective – they have never been shown to influence testosterone levels in any meaningful way.
The main ingredient has actually been conclusively proven to do nothing!
The second main ingredient is able to positively influence libido, but we know that it does not do this by increasing testosterone, reducing estrogen, or anything else related to your hormonal profile.
Basically, the bulk of the Pronabolin formula is useless dead plant material.
There are some effective ingredients in here; it’s not all bad! As we said, one of the key ingredients in here does improve libido. Another ingredient does actively promote higher free serum testosterone levels. It’s just that this ingredient makes up a tiny fraction of the formula.
Let’s get into this in more detail.
Main Weakness – Main Ingredient Does NOTHING!
It didn’t take us long to identify the real weak link in the Pronabolin formula – we are always on the look out for this flaw, because it is extremely common in testosterone boosters today.
The main ingredient in Pronabolin – Tribulus Terrestris – has been conclusively, resoundingly proven in robust clinical trials to DO NOTHING for testosterone.
Many supplement manufacturers claim that Tribulus Terrestris is a reliable, powerful natural testosteorne booster. They never go into very much detail about how Tribulus Terrestris is supposed to work; they never explain the mechanisms driving its supposed T-boosting abilities.
We think that’s because there is no T-boosting mechanism – despite what the manufacturers want you to believe, Tribulus Terrestris doesn’t work!
In this clinical trial, researchers took 22 male elite-level rugby players who were undergoing intensive pre-season training. They gave 11 of the participants Tribulus Terrestris, and 11 of them a placebo. They monitored their testosterone levels over 5 weeks. According to the big supplement brands, Tribulus Terrestris should be able to keep your T levels nice and high despite heavy weight training. It did not:
“After 5 weeks of training, strength and fat free mass increased significantly without any between-group differences. No between-group differences were noted in the urinary T/E ratio. It was concluded that T. terrestris did not produce the large gains in strength or lean muscle mass that many manufacturers claim can be experienced within 5-28 days.” (Published 2007 in Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research).
If you’re even remotely interested in using Tribulus Terrestris for the purpose of boosting testosterone levels, we urge you to read this paper in full. It – along with other studies showing the same thing – makes a strong case against the use of TT as a testosterone booster.
Major Weakness – Few Ingredients Actually Boost Testosterone
The main ingredient in Pronabolin is totally useless at boosting testosterone. We’ve made that quite clear above. However, Tribulus Terrestris is not the only dead weight in the Pronabolin formula. In fact, the vast majority of the formula is pretty much useless at increasing testosterone.
Fenugreek, for instance, does not influence any hormones in the human body.
It does seem to reliably improve libido and sexual performance. This effect is particularly notable in men struggling with fertility or sex drive. But Fenugreek has never been shown to have a notable effect on testosterone levels. There isn’t one study showing a meaningful rise in testosterone levels after Fenugreek supplementation. It can be a good addition to a stack, so long as that stack also boosts testosterone. But it is not a main ingredient.
Another useless ingredient is Eurycoma Longifolia.
Eurycoma Longifolia is a common ingredient in testosterone boosters today. It is more commonly known as Longjack. Again, we have absolutely no hard evidence showing that it does a damn thing for your T-levels. We do, however, have studies showing that Eurycoma Longifolia supplementation failed to raise serum testosterone levels. It is worth quoting the results of one trial in full:
“Testosterone replacement was able to raise the testosterone level and restore the bone volume of orchidectomised rats. EL supplementation failed to emulate both these testosterone actions. The inability of EL to do so may be related to the absence of testes in the androgen deficient osteoporosis model for EL to stimulate testosterone production.” (Published 2012 in Evidence Based Complimentary & Alternative Medicine).
Eurycoma Longifolia failed to increase testosterone in rats! What chance do you think it stands in humans, where a much smaller dose as a percentage of body-weight will be used?
Does Pronabolin Contain Any Good Ingredients?
Despite these serious flaws, it is worth pointing out that Pronabolin does contain some ingredients that benefit users who are looking for increased strength, less body fat, and a healthier sex drive.
Each serving provides 125mg of Coleus Forskohlii. The active ingredient in this herb – Forskolin – is a reliable and effective testosterone booster. Supplementing with Forskolin has been shown to increase free serum testosterone levels by a significant amount (ref).
We do also get a healthy dose of Fenugreek, which as we explained above helps with libido. The mechanism through which it does this is not quite clear. All we have are several clinical trials which show men reporting much greater sex drives while using fenugreek extracts compared to placebo or baseline.
These ingredients are certainly good things to have in a comprehensive, full-spectrum testosterone booster. But they can’t make up for Pronabolin’s total lack of potency or balance.
They are just the small consolation prizes in what is a pretty terrible formula!
Pricing – How Much Is Pronabolin?
The biggest turn-off for most of you is going to be Pronabolin’s price tag.
A single bottle of Pronabolin costs $79.95.
That is considerably more expensive than most other testosterone boosters.
Even the best natural testosterone boosters on the market today cost a lot less than Pronabolin. Our current top rated testosterone boosters all cost between $50 and $65 a bottle. These products are extremely well composed, potent, and comprehensive.
Pronabolin is not comprehensive, balanced, or potent. The main ingredients are ineffective for elevating testosterone. Most of the Pronabolin formula is bogus dead weight. There are some effective ingredients in here, but the bulk of the formula isn’t going to affect testosterone levels in men. Yet it is $15-30 more expensive than the best testosterone boosters on the market!
All of the beneficial effects you might see from using Pronabolin come from the Coleus Forskohlii and the Fenugreek. You can save a massive amount of money just buying these ingredients individually.
Pronabolin Side Effects – Is It Safe?
On the whole, Pronabolin does not look like a particularly dangerous supplement.
It is a natural testosterone booster. It uses ingredients which are very commonplace today – they are widely used in supplements, including testosterone boosters, liver support stacks, and libido boosters. They are not thought to pose any serious risks, even when used regularly for prolonged periods.
More importantly, the substances used in Pronabolin have all been rigorously studied in independent, clinical trials. To our knowledge, none of them have ever been flagged as causing serious side effects in human subjects.
We think the average user is unlikely to experience any serious adverse effects while using Pronabolin.
However, there are some ingredients in here which you need to consider seriously before using on a regular basis.
First of all, some studies looking at Tribulus Terrestris found that participants experienced some mild side effects, including:
- Stomach cramps
- Digestive discomfort
There has also been at least one case of acute Tribulus Terrestris poisoning, which caused hospitalization and liver damage (source). Of course, the young man in question took a very large dose, but it is worth considering this risk before using Tribulus Terrestris.
Aside from that, there aren’t any major red flags in Pronabolin. So long as you use it as described, you don’t have any pre-existing conditions that interact with the ingredients, and you arne’t using any other substances that interact badly with the ingredients, you should be fine.
It is very important that you remember the following facts while reading our product reviews:
- We aren’t qualified medical doctors
- This is not medical advice in any way, shape, or form
We don’t know you or your unique circumstances. We therefore cannot give you a tailored, exhaustive list of all possible risks. All we can do is highlight the most obvious risk factors according to our research and experience. You must do your own research and get proper advice from a qualified doctor before using any testosterone boosters.
If you have genuinely low testosterone, your doctor may prescribe more invasive measures such as TRT.
Pronabolin Review Conclusion – Is It Worth It?
This is not the incredible testosterone booster that the manufacturers make it out to be. Not even close.
Pronabolin is largely composed of ineffective, unproven, weak herbal extracts.
There are a couple of ingredients in here which do positively influence libido, strength, etc. But they make up a tiny portion of the overall Pronabolin formula.
In our opinion, only one ingredient stands a chance of positively influencing testosterone, and that’s Forskolin. We only get 125mg of this stuff per serving.
The ingredient with the most chance of positively affecting your libido is Fenugreek, but that does not actively increase testosterone levels; it simply improves libido independently of hormone levels.
The lack of effective, proven testosterone boosters is a serious problem with Pronabolin. But when you factor in the ridiculously high price of this testosterone booster, the flaws in the formula really come into focus.
Charging $79.95 for a testosterone booster that is mostly just useless herbal extracts is outrageous in our opinion.
For that price we’d expect to see big doses of vitamins and minerals, a powerful aromatase inhibitor, a substance to control cortisol, and a hefty dose of something proven to actively promote testosterone levels.
We get none of that here.
If you want to see a significant rise in free serum testosterone – and all of the benefits that come with it – you’re going to have to use a more comprehensive, professional product. Results with Pronabolin are always going to be meager.
