Is taking testoesrone boosters bad for liver or any health issues
and is taking gnu strength vitapak ok ?

Stop that stuff: There are no supplements or health foods that will boost testosterone. Testosterone can't be "boosted" and rarely would need it at your age. All those supplements are garbage.
