What natural supplements (not PEDs) are there reliable results of actually increasing testosterone levels?
I would like to know different opinions and experiences of supplements of this type, for example: tribulus, ashwagandha, zma ..
or supplements that are combinations of these or other compounds that have worked for you.
 
boron copper and zinc
Withania somnifera (ashwagandha), Eurycoma longifolia (tongkat ali)
Panax ginseng, Rhodiola rosacea
Shilajit/Moomiyo/Prima Vie TM
Lepimidium peruvianus (maca)
high protodioscin Tribulus extracts
Fenugreek/Testofen TM
Lycium barbarum (goji)

These should provide some good topics to read into. Clear conclusions will always be hard to come by, some papers say yes some say no, but this stuff will probably help you feel well regardless of measurable hormonal effects.

Barlowe's always has interesting single-ingredient and clearly labeled herbals for sale, some trademarked ingredients, etc.

Nootropics Depot as well; though it started as a cognition focused vendor they have all sorts of useful adaptogens, stimulants, trademarked extracts etc

Dragonherbs is a good source for Chinese herbals. There is a strong focus on what they call "tonic" herbs, which is basically what you would be after. Herbs not necessarily for treating a disease but rather optimization.

If you want to increase testosterone levels naturally using supplements the only substances that would have a significant direct effect on that is actual testosterone :) but you can increase your natural testosterone levels by living a healthy lifestyle,
Maximizing sleep, diet, training.

The only “supplement” that will make a real difference is sleep hygiene, stress management (keep cortisol low), performing heavy compound exercises, and keeping body fat low.

Beyond that take a lot of vitamin d, eat healthy fats, and make sure your good cholesterol is high.

Supplements don't really work at all....it's a scam. Pharmaceutical grade boosters are the only thing that work everything else is ineffective or having mild effects that are extremely short lived like not worth the money at all. You might as well use creatine if your looking for a natural kick. A lot of fitness is diet and sleep but people don't want to hear that because they want the quick fix. Even gear users know this is foundational to training and health. You should look at the requirements the FDA puts on supplement companies before they can sell their product, it's a fucking joke. It's up to the consumer to find info but there is a surprising lack of scientific studies done on anything you see on the market today

As others have stated, natural boosters are a joke. Even if they raise your test levels 10%, if you're sitting at 400 natty test level, it would only get you to 440. And trying to throw all of the natty boosters together to make some "super mega test boosting combo" does not work. You can buy a ton of test for what you would spend for test boosters.
 
No supplements are gonna give you a dramatic increase in a short time. There are foods and supplements that with healthier lifestyle that can gradually help your body make more but still not gonna be like roids.

Also taking shit loads of supplements isn't that good for you.
My girlfriend works at a hospital with liver patients.
She sees a lot of people who have messed up their liver with going crazy with supplements.
Same thing happened to my mom. She was hoarding supplements, and her liver values went crazy.
Luckily they returned to normal when she stopped taking those supplements.

Of course it might be also because supplement inudstry doesn't seem to be controlled that well.
I mean even I could compress my shit in a pill, put it in a bottle and slap a "Natural booster" sticker on it, and I'm pretty sure some poor suckers would even buy it lmao.
