Optimum Alpha Testosterone Booster Review
Supplement marketing Gods must have a field day when they kick back in the office pondering up ways and means to attract customers to their product range. Some, must just light up a fat one and churn out the old ‘animalistic’ shit and some think the best way is to be clean cut and medicinal. These guys, however, took some inspiration from some pop art – mental!
Optimum Alpha have a fairly small product range of just three and what looks to be a pretty basic website, that said, the graphics and font remind me of the art work featured in the Skrillex and Diplo music video feat. Bieber. Bieber aside, it’s pretty ‘urban’.
There are a whopping 12 ingredients in Optimum Alpha Testosterone Booster which is great, however, I think 10 is probably the best balance of ingredient count to content ratio.
So let’s break it all down:
D-Aspartic Acid – Research proves that D-Aspartic Acid is a physiological amino acid which releases and synthesizes testosterone in humans. D-Aspartic Acid features in everyone of our top 3 T-Boosters.
Fenugreek – It is claimed by researchers that fenugreek works to increase testosterone or androgen levels, which decrease as you age. This is found in our #1 T-Booster, Testofuel.
Chrysin – Laboratory research suggests that chrysin might increase testosterone but research in humans hasn’t found any effect on testosterone levels. The amount of chrysin that is absorbed from the intestine may be very small, which would make the effects unlikely.
Piperine – Studies have shown that piperine can enhance the absorption of nutrients.
Saw Palmetto – Known to not have any usefulness at all to stimulate testosterone production.
Longjack Extract – Eurycoma (Tongkat Ali, 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.
Forskolin – has been shown to help burn fat as well as increase muscle mass.
Epimedium – the suspected active component of horny goat weed, appears to act as a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, similar to some drugs used for erectile dysfunction.
Nettle Root – This plant contains beta-sitosterol, which helps elevate testosterone levels. Nettles have also been shown to significantly decrease estrogen levels, another proven strategy for raising serum testosterone. This is found in #2 T-Booster, PrimeMale.
Boron – In a study concerning men who took 10mg of Boron a day they saw their estrogen levels drop and their free testosterone rise. Boron is found in our #2 favourite testosterone booster, Prime Male.
Indole-3-carbinol – this is a negative regulator of estrogen.

– Testosterone boosting ingredients –
4 pills per day which is great because you can maintain a high level of testosterone boosting ingredients throughout the day. Anything less that 4 is to be ignored quite frankly.
I like the fact that this product offers D-Aspartic Acid and I find it unbelievable that so few testosterone boosters offer this in their ingredients. Fenugreek is a great addition along with Boron and Nettle Root. However, some key ingredients are mising to make it a complete product which lets it down. The levels of D-Aspartic Acid are fairly low so the real benefits may not be entirely noticable. You would be better off just buying DAA as id from a supplement store.
I think whilst the product is on the right track, it contains too many ingredients that are not really necessary which could be replaced with items such as Vitamin D3, Zinc, Magnesium and B6 to name but a few. That said ingredient levels of Fenugreek are on a par with True GRIT and offer more that TestoFuel. However, the latter offers a much better, well rounded product rather than being hit and miss by offering Saw Palmetto or Chrysin…so I know where my money would be spent.
My Review Conclusion
It’s partially there, there has been a bit of research in to the product, however, I feel it has been rushed on to the market to exploit the modern trend for fitness which is not a great sign. A product such as a Testosterone Booster is a complex affair and should have been researched thoroughly before being released to the public, this has the hallmarks of a ‘budget’ attempt to capitalize on the bandwagon. Overall the actually daily content is not that high and there are better product s out there for your muscular gainz!
