Tribustol sounds like a man’s supplement and has tribulus as its main weapon. It has many claims on being a performance and strength enhancer, a fat burner, a recovery booster, and even boasts a calming effect. It even claims to be better than creatine. Now those are a lot of claims and controversial at that. They’re on the pricey side of the market but maybe they have something up their sleeves.
Let’s take a look at what Tribustol offers its users.
- Serving size: 1 Capsule
- Serving per container: 150
- Vitamin A – 1051 IU
- Vitamin C – 120 mg
- Vitamin E – 78 IU
- Vitamin B1 – 2 mg
- Vitamin B2 – 1 mg
- Vitamin B6 – 2mg
- Folic Acid – 900 mcg
- Vitamin B12 – 15 mcg
- Potassium – 29 mg
- Tribulus (40%) 45 mg
Tribustol claims this is the right ratio for a product they is one of the best testosterone boosters in the industry. To be honest, it’s not really looking great based on the formula they show but we’ll keep an open mind about it and reserve the judgment later. Let’s check out each ingredient and see if they’re at least decent for the product’s claims.
- Vitamins. B6 and B12 are the only ingredients that can boost testosterone and they’re severely underdosed. You may not even feel a thing. Other vitamins have their own effects but most of them have weird dosages too which makes us wonder what purpose they serve. Vitamin E and Folic acid are too high while B2 might as well be invisible as an example.
- Potassium. Too small to work as anything but an electrolyte for muscle hydration.
- Tribulus. Common testosterone boosters have at least 300 mg of this ingredient and it’s not to boost testosterone but to enhance physical performance and boost sex drive. Sadly, we only see a mere hint of Tribustol’s main ingredient hence nullifying their products potential game changer.
Tribustol’s website says you have to take 1 capsule per 40 lbs of weight so a man weighing 160 lbs has to take 4 capsules and a man weighing 240 lbs, 6. This effectively multiplies the dosages and makes it seem like the underdosed ingredients seem justified but it doesn’t. Not only does it not nullify the low doses but it also spikes up the vitamins that are way too high. This could cause serious overdose problems if taken for long term.
Speaking of underdosing, we have no idea what makes them write their claims. We like to think they were on an extremely tight budget and was in a hurry to get a product out without even knowing what it truly does.
It’s not better than creatine, it’s not an effective fat burner, too mild of a strength enhancer, and we’re confident you won’t feel good as they state on their website and it’s all because of poor ingredient choices and even poorer dosages. The only real benefit would be the vitamins and minerals but you’re better off taking something like Centrum everyday instead.
Who should use it
We don’t see any point on recommending this to anyone. Even if it was for free it might do more harm than good.
They said there’s no side effect but overdosing on a few vitamins could trigger it specially if you plan on taking more than 4 capsules a day.

We do not recommend this product at all. A better product will be a brand that won’t lie to you and will be clear on what it can really do. We’ve reviewed plenty of other products and even if they weren’t so good at least they somehow work. One of the best Tongkat Ali is by Herbolab. Simple and straight to the point with no fancy claims. Stay away from Tribustol at all costs.
