The Genius Brand Genius Test Testosterone Booster Review
The Genius Brand Genius Test Testosterone Booster Review First Look:
It is Tuesday and I do not feel a genius nor full of testosterone.
In fact I feel a bit disheveled after rolling around in our office comms/server room and a bit fried with all of the goings on.
I also have terrible wind.
Last night before bed I had some pickled eggs and fat free milk and it destroyed me last night and the much of today. I do not recommend that you do the same.
Basically today I feel tired from my workout yesterday and a bit lackadaisical. I do not feel like I can cycle home nor crack on with some further work or take a few items back to the store.
However, one look at this testosterone booster from The Genius Brand may change all of that, it looks much more like a Nootropic than a testosterone booster but that classic, white and pharma looking product packaging exudes reliability and trust.
How can you not trust this?! Especially when it calls itself a ‘first rate multipurpose test booster’, literally their words, not mine.
It does offer that sporting edge though too, just to keep you interested.
Ingredients: The Science
LJ-100 / Longjack (Eurycoma Longifolia, TongKat Ali) – Is a pro-fertility agent and aphrodisiac that appears to have a large body of evidence supporting this role and some evidence suggesting it may be an anti-estrogen and pro-erectile agent.
Although there’s some research to suggest it may increase testosterone levels in animals and humans it is pretty lackluster which doesn’t bode too well.
Quercetin (Apple extract, 3, 4, 5, 7-pentahydroxylflavone) – Has anti-oxidant, anti-artherogenic, and anti-carcinogenic properties.
Quercetin is also neuroactive, with some of the same abilities as Caffeine but less potent. It increases the bio-availability of resveratrol.
Doses of up to 25mg per kg of body weight is advised.
Fenugreek – Fenugreek is a proven ingredient as found in our benchmark testosterone boosting product; Testofuel.
Research shows that a fenugreek seed extract can reduce daily fat intake in overweight men when taken by mouth at a dose of 392 mg three times daily for 2-6 weeks.
Boron – Boron is great for the older lifter or those doing high weight low rep work as it helps to reduce inflammation, something that is found in PrimeMale, which I am a fan of.
It can also have a positive effect on testosterone levels.
Primavie (Shilajit Extract) – This is a fulvic acid found in the Himalayas. Actual medical research is low, it has been banded around for years in the East though.
It seems it can help boost the immune system, fend off lethargy and also assist with altitude sickness.
It seems there is no harm in taking it and it seems to have a fair amount of benefits, and has been noted to increasing testosterone levels in infertile men but as there has only been one human study it is unsure whether it will increase testosterone levels in fertile men.
On other thing to note is that there is a warning in place for shilijat due to the amount of additives being added to supplements and in some cases metals have been found, as such sales are now banned in Canada due to concerns.
Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) – Studies have shown that treatment with Ashwagandha root extract resulted in a higher level of testosterone and a concomitant increase in serum levels of LH among infertile men having sub-optimal testosterone levels.
It’s difficult to see if the same result would be found with guys who do not have any fertility issues. So the question is, are you infertile?
If you’ve been banging your missus (or even your mistress, we shouldn’t be even talking if you have smashed your sister) unprotected and have miraculously not had a sprog you probably are infertile…sorry to break that to you, bro.
However, you are probably in look because only 12% of men throughout the whole world are infertile, and even then, that is a generous estimate by the World Health Authority.
Taking Ashwagandha may also irritate the gastrointestinal and lower blood pressure which can interfere with medications.
DIM (Diindolylmethane) – Diindolylmethane appears to promote a healthy balance of testosterone in the body and is found in vegetables such as broccoli.
Cruciferous vegetables which contain high levels of DIM such as broccoli are eaten by many professional athletes such as rugby league players for their benefits.
The recommended dose is 4 pills per day.
This means we get 2610mg of combined ingredients per day. That’s not amazing, but it is okay.
Ingredients aside, it is better to have 4 pills spread out across the day, like this offers, to ensure your body has a constant supply of ingredients the case with the best testosterone boosters.
DIM with LJ-100 is able to regulate estrogen and too much estrogen can lower testosterone levels.
Fenugreek and Boron are able to increase testosterone levels, Boron can also reduce inflammation.
Inflammation can inhibit testosterone stimulation and cause chronic disease such as obesity and no-one wants that.
Shilajit and Ashwagnda appear to offer benefits to those who are infertile, however, only 12% of the male population are estimated to be infertile, this is also a generous estimate provided by the World Health Authority.
Quercetin has neuro-protective properties plus is an anti-oxidant.
There’s a lack mass here. The 2610mg is less than what the best testosterone boosters offer.
There’s also a lack of real, proven testosterone boosting ingredients. Okay, Fenugreek is effective and Boron but we are pulling teeth with Shilajit and Ashwagandha which only help in men who are infertile.
Not only that, the amounts required of Quercetin per kgs/lbs of body weight is unfeasible for it to be effective and offer any benefit. The daily dose would nearly have to be doubled
DIM and Longjack can only regulate estrogen but itself cannot increase testosterone levels or stimulate more production.
Shilajit is also banned in some countries.
$57.99 isn’t cheap for a lack of proven ingredients.

The Genius Brand Genius Test Testosterone Booster Review Conclusion:
There’s only two helpful ingredients present that will reliably help our body to increase testosterone production.
Two other’s don’t stimulate testosterone but do help regulate estrogen which in turn can protect testosterone levels.
All effective testosterone boosters should include the following, and this one doesn’t:
However, this testosterone booster which lauds itself at being a ‘smart testosterone booster’ doesn’t include one of these ingredients at all.
That’s not very smart at all, little research has clearly been employed by this particular ‘genius’.
There’s also a lack of Quercetin to be effective, I personally would need over 2200mg alone per day.
With not one of the proven ingredients included I would give this a miss, save your money and buy something effective and safe.
