A variety of pills, creams, and even injections can be used to boost testosterone levels, however, testosterone drops can be helpful as well.
You probably know that optimal testosterone levels have a huge impact on the gains you get from your workouts, as well as stamina during your workout.

What Are Testosterone Drops?
Testosterone drops contain a range of natural ingredients designed to help your body boost its natural testosterone production.

There is no evidence of testosterone drops having a poor effect on your health when used appropriately.
Most do not cause any side effects, only the benefits of naturally boosting testosterone levels.
Do Testosterone Drops Work?
Your next question is likely “Do testosterone drops work?”.
Testosterone drops can work, and some of them contain ingredients that have been used for thousands of years to boost testosterone levels, strength, and muscle mass in men.
Deer antler velvet is an ingredient commonly found in testosterone drops. It is known to stimulate bone and cartilage growth , as well as increase testosterone production.
This has been, and remains to this day, a prevalent remedy in Chinese herbal medicine, serving many purposes, chiefly to balance the body’s systems.
If suffering from symptoms of low testosterone, poor bone density or slow muscle regeneration, drops that contain this ingredient may be helpful.
While scientific studies have had mixed results, it is banned by several sports organizations who believe it gives athletes an unfair advantage.
WADA issued a statement saying that while it is not specifically banned, you should be very careful because IGF-1 is banned, and deer antler extract may contain or increase IGF-1 levels when tested.
Tribulus is another herbal supplement that is believed to boost testosterone by increasing production of luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormones. These hormones play a significant role in testosterone production.
Certain foods may also help you increase testosterone.
Low Testosterone Levels
Low testosterone is generally considered a condition that affects older men. While it’s true that your testosterone levels drop approximately 1% each year after you turn 30, low testosterone can affect men of any age.
Getting a diagnosis from your doctor can be difficult, as each individual is different, and “normal” testosterone levels vary greatly between each individual.
The good news is there are things you can do to raise your testosterone levels naturally, such as weight lifting, running about 40 miles a week, and taking plant based supplements.
Testosterone Drops VS Pills
There are several advantages to using a liquid supplement (testosterone drops) instead of pills.
Liquid drops are absorbed by your body in one to four minutes, while it takes about 30 minutes to digest a pill.
Your body may have a hard time breaking down a pill, particularly as you age.
Liquid extracts stay stable for a longer period of time than pills giving them a longer shelf life, and allowing them to retain more of their potency.
It’s also possible to put much more of the active ingredient in the testosterone drops than the pill. There’s also the ease of dosing.
Some supplements require you to take a few large pills, while testosterone drops can be swallowed easily in a few sips of water.
Low Testosterone Symptoms
You may want to consider using testosterone drops if you experience a combination of the following symptoms.
Lower sex drive, or the inability to perform sexually, are a common symptom of low testosterone. If you experience a drastic decline in your sex drive, low testosterone could be the culprit. You may notice a decrease in the volume of semen you produce as well.

Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms of low testosterone, especially if you are getting plenty of rest and still feel tired. Unfortunately, fatigue also makes it more difficult for you to stick to a workout schedule, which can aggravate the next two symptoms.
When your testosterone level drops, so can your lean muscle mass. This is why many men choose supplements to raise their testosterone levels. Even men with testosterone levels in the “normal” range can experience more muscle gains by increasing their testosterone levels.
Low testosterone also causes your body to store more fat. Fatigue, loss of muscle mass, and increases in fat storage can start a cycle that is hard to break. Loss of muscle mass makes it more difficult to burn fat, and fatigue makes it harder to work out.
It also causes a decrease in bone density. This increases the risk of serious injuries and broken bones, especially if you are working out or engaging in athletic activities.
Low testosterone can also cause mood swings, depression and irritability. It can also affect your ability to focus and think clearly, which can affect your professional life as well as your social life.
Testosterone drops can be used on their own or in conjunction with supplements prescribed by a doctor.
