It’s not everyday a supplement company innovates by adding a new and unknown ingredient and that’s what the folks behind Gamma-O did. Gamma-O makes use o Gamma Oryzanol as its main testosterone booster. The theory behind Gamma Oryzanol is its activation of Luteinizing Hormone or LH, one of the key components in activating the body’s testosterone production.
Is this new ingredient effective or more of a marketing hype? Let’s find out.

GAMMA-O is intriguing when you look at it. It looks to be an innovative natural testosterone booster with an array of ingredients that all look to be properly dosed. Let’s take a closer look and see if their formula is actually worth paying big money for.
- Vitamin D. A very good form of a testosterone booster but the dose is somewhat minimal. It looks a lot but other supplements average at around 2500 IU with the highest being 5000 IU.
- Gamma Oryzanol. This is their key ingredient and the main reason they produced GAMMA-O in the first place. They claim it can boost testosterone but science says “No it doesn’t.” Well, that’s bad.
- CLA. CLA is known for body composition benefits; more lean muscle mass & less bodyfat as it functions as a great fat burner more than anything else.
- I3C. Better known as I3C, is the precursor to Diindoylymethane, an aromatase inhibitor that helps block conversion of testosterone to estrogen. The dose should be enough to get it going.
- Maca. Not a testosterone booster but useful for sex drive and physical performance.
Based on our analysis, GAMMA-O fails as a testosterone booster despite the hype it tried to promote around Gamma Oryzanol. The only working ingredients there for testosterone are Vitamin D and I3C and even they’re not sufficient to actually give your testosterone production a kick. The only redeeming factor to Gamma Oryzanol is how it could reduce cholesterol but even the study says it requires more tests.
Who should use it
We don’t really recommend it to be used by anyone unless they want to try it out themselves just to see how it doesn’t work.
No actual side effects reported.

GAMMA-O tried to be different but lack of evidence for their main ingredient killed their product almost immediately. Not to mention the price of one bottle was once at $99.99 so yes, $74.99 is already heavily discounted. Too bad it’s not a working product. If you want to buy something both cheaper and working then go for Herbolab’s Tongkat Ali. It’s not too complicated and works the way it should.
