Muscle Performance Nutrition Test Performance Testosterone Booster Review
This is bold, striking and alpha looking.
There’s some graphics that look like the wire fencing around an octagon and stainless steel looking lettering in an aggressive font your would see advertising a pick-up.
This looks like bottled man, but not a desk wallah, a cowboy or a logger.

Ingredients: The Science
18 ingredients make up this product, that is a mental amount of ingredients especially as it has to be split across 1820mg – that is not a lot of content overall.
Whhhhaaaaaaaaattt?! Here we are again! It states there’s a proprietary blend.
We all know a proprietary blend is just used to mask the exact weights and measures for each ingredient listed and it is the biggest scam in the supplement industry.
It is hard to trust anything which contains a proprietary blend as would could just be buying trace amounts of the listed ingredients with a load of filler or just one of the ingredients making up the majority to keep production costs to a minimal.
Zinc – This mineral is great for boosting testosterone, it is necessary for reactions in your brain and promotes the production of both testosterone and growth hormone.
The amount here is about equal to that found in a good ZMA product.
Tongkat Ali – Eurycoma (LongJack) 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.
However, there is a lack of evidence for testosterone boosting in humans, although some very limited evidence in animals.
Maca Root – This Peruvian strain of ginseng is great for lifting libido and mood, however, when it comes to raising testosterone levels it has no effect at all.
No significant influences on testosterone in any tested demographic I’m afraid.
L-Arginine – This is found in many pre workout supplements or products designed to make you more vascular.
L-Arginine opens up the blood vessels and arteries to assist with blood flow, nothing really to do with testosterone but may assist with any impotency issues that are not helping you attain that hot chick in the gym who is 15 years your junior.
Panex Ginseng – This form of Ginseng is the most highly researched.
There’s lots of evidence which suggest cognitive function, mood and immunity is increased, however, although there is evidence for better erections and an increase in testosterone production for infertile men there is also evidence contradictory evidence also.
Eleutherococcus Senticosus (Siberian Ginseng) – Whilst there is evidence that this can actually help treat herpes and reduce the severity of cold and flu, there is very little solid evidence to reliably suggest this helps increase testosterone or increase strength.
However, we are now punished with a proprietary blend which means we are not entirely sure of the ingredient profile breakdown:
Sarsaparilla – Athletes sometimes use sarsaparilla as a steroid for performance enhancement.
Some supplement makers claim that chemicals (sterols) in sarsaparilla can be converted to anabolic steroids like testosterone.
But this is a false claim.
Pumpkin Seed – Pumpkin seeds are great for Magnesium which is good for testosterone production.
Muira Puama – No real scholarly studies or evidence available from reliable sources that would suggest that this stimulates testosterone production.
Nettle – Good for reducing inflammation and an enlarged prostate but has no effect on testosterone.
Cayenne Pepper – The hot and spicy taste of cayenne pepper comes from capsaicin, a compound found in many hot peppers.
Capsaicin is known to boost metabolism, causing the body to produce extra heat and burn more calories for fuel.
This is found in our favorite fat burner Instant Knockout.
Licorice – May have many various uses, the main being to sooth heartburn and inflamed skin, but for the rest there’s really a lack of evidence to deem it useful.
Astragalus – Bit of an all-rounder, this antioxidant helps protect the body against various stresses, including physical, mental, or emotional stress.
Catauba – Used to heighten sexual arousal and treat male sexual performance problems.
Oyster Powder – Research of this mollusc has shown that is aids your body to increase testosterone.
Orchic Substance – Claimed to help stimulate testosterone in men.
However, there is currently no evidence to support this claim.
Tribulus – Once marveled, now known to have no effect on testosterone levels, by now supplement manufacturers should really let go.
Avoid like a medieval plague if you are looking for muscular gainz.
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.
Just 2 capsules a day, this is really poor.
It should be 4 capsules at least like what is recommended by our top 3 testosterone boosters.
This way your body has a constant trickle of the ingredients to work with in order to stimulate testosterone.
Not only that, but with less than 2000mg per daily serving we are being short changed here.
- Take a look at our Top 3 boosters for something effective.
The more I read these ingredients the more I recognize everyone of them, once again we are looking at a clone product and I just cannot get my head around why this same set of ingredients with slightly varying weights is doing the Amazon circuit.
I’ve said it once and I will say it again, this set of ingredients is not going to do anything positive, anything that is a good ingredient is lost in the moronic proprietary blend.
The actual content is way off the mark and is nearly surpassed by PrimeMale’s whopping 1600mg of D-Aspartic Acid it contains, not to mention the plethora of supporting ingredients.
Once again we are faced with a copy of a product that wasn’t very good in the first place.
It is like those cars in China were they have cloned something from the 1970’s or 1980’s and they’ve done a worse job the second time round, why bother?
It is worth reiterating that in our top 3 rated testosterone boosters they have around 8 solid ingredients which all have proof backing their usefulness and they will contain more or nearly as much D-Aspartic Acid than this product has in it all together, period.
The RRP is also $49.99 which I find astonishing, some of the clones are half the price, even then it is too expensive.
I wouldn’t buy this if it were just $1.
Another clone wrapped up in a different frock.
The first one we tested was no good and it hasn’t changed since then.
A ludicrously high number of ingredients spread across a low combined weight with a low dosage.
Only a very small number of the ingredient would be effective if we were dosed a proper amount.
Take a look at what works and don’t fall foul of spurious claims.
