Can Synthetic Testosterone Boosters Kill You?

Although possible, it's unlikely that chemical testosterone boosters will kill you (in the vast majority of cases). But that doesn't mean they aren't dangerous. Below, we'll examine the inherent risks of synthetic testosterone boosters - and the importance of avoiding them at all costs!

Is TRT the Same Thing as Steroids?

The short answer is: yes, and no. TRT (short for "testosterone replacement therapy") is a legal medical practice where, under close doctor supervision, you are administered synthetic chemicals to help improve dangerously low testosterone levels. But don't be so naive as to think that just because a doctor says it's okay that it will be all sunshine and roses. There are many unpleasant risks associated with TRT therapy, no matter which administration method you choose.

  • TRT Implant Dangers: The TRT implant is the size of a grain of rice and is injected under your skin. But this treatment method comes with all of the negative physical and emotional side effects of anabolic steroids (see below). What's worse is that if the symptoms are unbearable but you cannot make a prompt appointment with your doctor, you could be stuck experiencing these symptoms for weeks or even months before the implant can be removed safely.
  • Transdermal TRT Patch Dangers: This is an adhesive patch which is usually applied to the scrotum. Skin irritation is a very common problem with the TRT patch - which makes removing it an even more painful process.
  • Injections: Injections can be easily administered at home, but may be a problem for men who have trouble with needles.
  • Gels and Creams: While generally well tolerated and nearly as effective as any other TRT method, there is a very real possibility that you could accidentally poison people around you. If you apply the gel or cream to an area of your body that other people frequently touch - such as your partner, your children, friends, co-workers, etc - they could be exposed to chemicals that can make them sick.

In a perfect world, a responsible medical physician would only prescribe testosterone replacement therapy if there was a legitimate medical need to the patient, which is usually limited to those rare cases of hypogonadism. Of course, there are other medical conditions which can also drastically reduce your testosterone levels, such as:

  • Hypothyroidism
  • Pituitary gland malfunction
  • Excessive estrogen conversion
  • And more

Many of the conditions above can be treated with alternative therapies; TRT isn't the only answer. Furthermore, non-TRT treatments are typically safer and more well-tolerated by patients. Unfortunately, much like the opioid epidemic in the united states, unscrupulous doctors are willing to prescribe TRT to men who don't need it in order to make a tidy profit. And you, as a patient with limited to no medical knowledge, will have a difficult time determining which side of that fence your doctor falls on.

The negative side effects experienced by men with chronically low testosterone levels are nothing compared to what a healthy adult male might experience while undergoing medically unnecessary testosterone replacement therapy. Because this type of testosterone boosting treatment has the potential to mimic the unpleasant side effects associated with anabolic steroid abuse, it's important to warn men that just because it's technically legal and being administered by a medical professional doesn't necessarily mean that it is safe or healthy.

Why You Shouldn't Boost Testosterone Levels With Anabolic Steroids

In case the title was too subtle for you, allow us to state our opinion on the subject in more explicit terms: abusing anabolic steroids in order to boost your testosterone levels is stupid, dangerous, and no man should do it, ever. At least, no man who has any concern for his overall well-being and longevity, that is. In case you don't believe us, however, let's go over the facts real quick. Once you have the 411 on the dangers of anabolic steroids, you may just change your mind about considering them is a viable option for increased testosterone production.

Fact: Anabolic steroids contain a combination of dihydrotestosterone and testosterone. Some anabolic steroids may contain other ingredients to either boost the effectiveness of the first two, mask them from being detected in your urine/blood, or all of the above. There is no medical data on how safe these extra ingredients that your steroids might be "cut" with are - sort of like how it's impossible to know whether street heroin is pure and dangerously potent, or diluted with toxic chemicals.

Fact: Anabolic steroids have a completely different mechanism of action compared to natural testosterone. Anabolic steroids stimulate testosterone production from tissues in your body other than your gonads (and, to a lesser extent, your adrenal glands). Steroids stimulate your muscle and bone tissue to excrete testosterone, which can have detrimental long-term effects on bone density and muscular integrity.

Fact: The negative side effects of anabolic steroid abuse can drive you insane - literally. Studies show that men who abuse anabolic steroids leave themselves vulnerable to developing addiction disorders, depression, suicidal thoughts, violent mood swings, and difficulty resisting the urge to act impulsively. This instability frequently leads to complications in men's personal and/or professional lives.


Physical symptoms of both anabolic steroid abuse and medically unnecessary testosterone replacement therapy include:

  • Shrinking testicles
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Heart disease
  • Low sperm count
  • Infertility
  • Hair loss and balding
  • Acne problems, despite your age
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Breast tissue growth. No, we're not saying that you will develop large fat stores above your pectoral muscles which resemble feminine curves; we're saying that you will develop the specific tissue responsible for physiological processes exclusive to the female breast, such as lactation and estrogen production.

Clearly, you can see how attempting to raise your testosterone in unnatural ways can be uncomfortable, unhealthy, dangerous, or worse. So why take the risk? Save the time, money, and effort it would take to either purchase illicit steroids or get a prescription from your doctor. Instead, invest those resources in a safe, effective testosterone boosting supplement. Formulas like Xytomax are affordable, well-tolerated, and can be shipped in discreet packaging straight to your doorstep in a matter of days. They give you the testosterone boost you need to feel manly and virile without any of the dangerous side effects. So what are you waiting for? Try Xytomax today!
