HFL’s AlphaViril supplement can supposedly boost your testosterone and increase your libido–and is even said to work like five products in one–but is it really as good as Dr Sam Robbins claims it to be?
Or is AlphaViril a scam that is just going to be a waste of your money–getting your hopes up for nothing?
You are probably reading my review now because you don’t quite trust what Dr Sam Robbins says about it–it just sounds too good to be true, which was exactly what I thought at first as well and is the reason I am writing this review now.
I first came across AlphaViril after landing on the video presentation you can see here…
There are so many scam testosterone boosting products out on the market that simply don’t work, that I am always suspicious when I come across something that sounds a little bit toooo good.
One of the main selling points to this particular supplement is that it attacks low testosterone problems from multiple different angles–by not only helping boost testosterone levels but also by decreasing levels of “anti-testosterone hormones”.

- Where to Buy – Official website here
As we already know, AlphaViril is a 100% natural testosterone boosting supplement created by Dr Sam Robbins and sold under his brand, HFL Solutions. Dr Robbins claims that he originally formulated AlphaViril back in 1999 and used exclusively with professional athletes, but has since expanded the marketing around it–now selling it to the general public so that anyone can buy it.
The potential benefits of this supplement, as stated on the website, include…
Among it’s many claimed benefits, Dr Robbins also claims that it has no negative side effects–although this does not seem to be the case and I will talk more about it shortly.
There is a long list of ingredients included in this supplement and it is formulated to work in seven different areas, including:
- Testosterone Optimizer – Testofen (Fenugreek extract), Avena Sativa, Tongkat Ali, maca root
- These are the ingredients intended to increase levels of total testosterone and free testosterone in the body.
- LH, FSH, SHBG Optimizer – Pro-Tribulus Terrestris, Stinging Nettle, Ginger
- While these ingredients also have a testosterone boosting effect, they are primarily included here for their benefits of helping keep testosterone levels high over longer periods of time.
- Female Hormone Optimizer – DIM, White Button Mushroom, Vitex Agnus
- This is the complex of ingredients that are included in the formula to help lower “anti-testosterone hormones”, such as estrogen.
- DHT Optimizer – Zinmax, Zinc Picolinate, Copper, Selenium
- DHT is a male sex hormone that is commonly associated with male pattern baldness. It is an androgen that is a byproduct of testosterone. These ingredients are intended to keep DHT in line so that you don’t experience the negative effects of it–and also to help improve prostate health.
- Stress Optimizer – Sensoril, Ashwagandha, Horny Goat Weed
- These ingredients are for targeting stress hormones–helping reduce them which can benefit overall health–but they also have testosterone boosting effects.
- PDE-5 & Nitric Oxide Optimizer – Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa, L-Arginine
- Here are the ingredients that Dr Robbins tells us are for improving nitric oxide production (although there are others). L-Arginine is a commonly included ingredient for NO boosting supplements and is well studied in this area. These can help give you a better pump in the gym and increase blood flow to the penis.
- Dopamine Optimizer – Macuna Pruriens
- Macuna Pruriens is thrown into the mix to help increase dopamine production, providing you with a happier, better feeling. This is a good source of L-DOPA, which is a precursor to dopamine and can increase levels of such.
Now if you have ever bought testosterone boosting supplements in the past, you are probably familiar with many of the ingredients listed above, such as horny goat weed, L-Arginine (doesn’t boost test but is often included in test boosting supplements), tribulus, and so on.
A lot of the ones included here have been used for thousands of years and traditional Eastern medicine and some are more modern findings. Not every ingredient has the best scientific backing for its effectiveness on humans, but overall there is a decent amount of scientific evidence that supports the supplements in it of these ingredients for its intended use–although I would definitely like to see more evidence.
But of course the ingredients are only one part of the equation. In order for this all to work, there has to be the right amount of each ingredient and unfortunately this is where I think the product falls very short.
Below you can see a picture of the label of AlphaViril…
Every ingredient that I listed above, the entire blend, makes up less than 1 gram total per serving, which is very low.
Maybe this “doctor formulated” dosage works surprisingly well with all of the different ingredients in combination, but this is still concerning to me.
For example, horny goat weed, as mentioned is often included in test boosting supplements, has only really been shown to increase testosterone levels in rats at very high doses–doses much higher than that included here.
We are told that there are no side effects to taking the supplement, but it seems that many who have taken it would beg to differ.
In my research I read over quite a few user reviews and found that heartburn is a side effect that is somewhat common, some people have experienced nausea after taking it, and one person even said they felt like they’re going to have a heart attack (although this definitely does not seem to be common).
For the majority of people out there, there probably will not be any negative side effects worth mentioning, because the doses included here are so low, but there is the potential for some.
Is The Money-back Guarantee Real?
If you have come across promotional material for AlphaViril then I am sure you have heard all about the money back guarantee–in which Dr Sam Robbins claims that if this doesn’t help improve testosterone levels in 30 days you will get a full refund plus an additional $100 back for free.
He makes the same guarantees with his other products as well, such as Blood Flow Optimizer, but unfortunately you should not get your hopes up thinking that you will ever actually be able to get them to follow through on this guarantee.
Just think about–they would have to be absolutely crazy to offer a guarantee like this with the hopes of staying in business.
If AlphaViril didn’t work for you and you did try to claim your full refund plus $100 cash back, you would probably be asked to provide lab tests showing your testosterone levels before and after as proof–and even if you could provide these, how could you ever prove that you actually took the recommended doses for the recommended period of time?
This is just a somewhat scammy marketing tactic that likely holds no truth (truth as we are led to believe that is).
What Others Are Saying
AlphaViril also sells on Amazon and at the time of me writing this there are over 90 reviews left by customers, who have supposedly tried it.
Overall it’s rating is surprisingly good, with an average of 4 out of 5 stars…
That said, I review products all the time and have developed somewhat of a keen eye for fake reviews–and I am no doubt suspicious of the legitimacy of many of the reviews left for this product. Some of them just seem to be fake and not very realistic.
Conclusion – Is It Worth The Money?
While I do think that AlphaViril definitely holds some promise and has the potential to boost testosterone levels naturally to some extent, in my opinion it is overpriced and a bit overhyped as well.
Whether or not it is worth the money is ultimately a decision that is up to you. It does include a lot of good ingredients that have some scientific backing, so it might be worth a try.
What do you think? I’m always interested in hearing the opinions of my readers–so please leave your comments or questions below 🙂 And if you have tried AlphaViril then I would really appreciate you leaving a short review describing your experience with it.
