The Best Buying Guide To Testosterone Boosters

While you may be better off buying steroids than wasting money on most testosterone boosters, these supplements actually contain ingredients that'll not only enhance your test levels but keep your estrogen under control.

10. Alpha Jym by Jym

This is the man who brought you Pre-Jym...

While Jim has been stirring up drama in the industry, his products are still strong and work well. 

Alpha Jym ​is a solid testosterone boosters (can be used as a estrogen inhibitor) that is built from 6 fully dosed ingredients. 


  • 1g Fenugreek Seed Extract
  • 1g Damiana Leaf
  • 1g Ashwagandha Root Extract 5:1
  • 500mg Quercetin Dehydrate
  • 500mg Diindolymethane (DIM)
  • 200mg Eurycoma Longifolia Root 100:1 Extract

It starts off by using Fenugreek, a strong double dose of it but follows up with an unproven ingredient for increasing test levels; "damiana leaf"​, though it may help decrease estrogen levels. 

Of course, what's a test booster without ashwagandha. It's a strong anti-anxiety ingredient which not only decreases stress but helps promote optimal testosterone levels.

It ends the formula with DIM (diinolymethane), which is known to decrease estrogen and quercetin​ to enhance fat loss. 

All in all, Alpha Jym should live up to it's name though it seems to be more of a estrogen-inhibitor, it should still be a solid test booster for beginners and skinny folks alike. ​


  • Well rounded formula
  • 36 grams of active ingredients per serving
  • Perfect booster if you are 30 or older
  • Doesn’t require PCT (estrogen inhibitor)
  • Reduces body fat and increases libido
  • Generous dose of Ashwagandha (increases testosterone)
  • Twice a day dosing (simple)
  • Can be used by women if they are not pregnant or expecting to be (Fenugreek is great for women)


  • Expensive (but well rounded supplement)
  • 500mg Fenugreek has little to no effect on testosterone levels (but great if you’re experiencing hair loss)

9. Insurgent by MTS Nutrition

If you know Marc, then you either love him or hate him. 

It does not matter what you think of him, because his supplements are generally true to their claims.


  • 1g L-Carnitine L-Tartrate
  • 500mg PrimaVie Shilajit (Ayurvedic, standardized to 50% Fulvic Acid)
  • 300mg Spilanthes Acmella
  • 200mg Eurycoma Longifolia 100:1

Take Insurgent for example, it was recently released and it's being marketed as a super potent libido and testosterone booster.

Unlike most test boosters though, this doesn't have a long list of random, and underdosed or any prop blends for that matter.

All the ingredients are not only disclosed but they are fully and clincally dosed to do what it's suppose to do.... enhance testosterone levles.

It starts off with an unusual ingredient that isn't used much in test boosters; l-carnitine l-tartrate.

It's mainly used in supplements like intra workouts or pre in order to enhance endurance and recovery.

A gram is in here to enhance the production of hormones (testosterone) to optimal levels.

The other 3 ingredients in here will further enhance your anabolic state.

PrimaVie Shilajit (aka Ayurvedic, standardized for 50% fulvic acid), this ingredient will enhance muscle recovery and repair by enhancing a muscle's 'pliability'.

There's also a new ingredient in here that you may see blowing up in the supplement industry and that's "spilanthes acmella".

With 300mg of this in Insurgent, it's been proven in studies to increase testosterone levels in just 28 days.  


  • Increases muscle mass and testosterone production
  • Reduces cortisol levels and estrogen levels
  • Uses a new but proven test boosting flower (Spilanthes Acmella)
  • Enhances muscle growth and recovery
  • Improves blood flow and increases androgen receptor density in muscle cells (increases testosterone production)
  • Increases strength, size and performance
  • Can be stacked with Barracuda (contains DAA)
  • Aggression and mood may be enhanced


  • May not increase libido
  • Expensive (You get what you pay for)

8. Status by Blue Star


  • 600mg KSM-66 (Ashwagandha)
  • 300mg Longjack Extract 100:1
  • 108mg DIM (3,3’-Diindolylmethane)
  • 100mg TestoSURGE (Trigonella Foenum, Graecum)
  • 490mg ZMA Complex
  • 61mg XD Delivery Technology (BioPerine, Astragin, Fumarate, Sodium ALA, Succinate)

Once you hit a certain age (usually around 30), you’ll begin experiencing some drops in testosterone levels.

This isn’t what you want if you’re trying to build muscle and want to keep the motivation high and strong.

So Blue Star has created an awesome test booster, Status.

While the bottle looks shiny and we like shiny things (who doesn’t?), the real reason this is on this list is because the formula is well put together with clinical dosages and scientifically proven ingredients.

Just look at the ingredients above.

It starts with Ashwagandha, a stress and cortisol reducer that can increase LH (Luteinizing Hormone) while simultonously reducing FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone).

That alone will put you in a solid foundation of an anabolic state.

Longjack is in most of the test boosters listed here as it has the ability to increase testosterone levels and libido.

Expect better hormone regulation, body composition and better overall sexual health.

DIM, aka 3,3’-Diindolylmethane, has estrogen reducing benefits that can also increase 2-hydroxyestrone (good estrogen).

Instead of just using Fenugreek alone, it takes advantage of a patented blend that also includes trigonella foenum (Testofen).

Studies have shown that this blend can increase creatine uptake, anabolic activity, testosterone levels as well as decreasing body fat.

Status is not only a test booster as you can see, it can also increase performance and strength.

ZMA is also included (Vitamin B6, Magnesium and Zinc), minerals that are usually depleted with intense exercise but are important for testosterone production.

And finally to ensure full delivery of those ingredients, it includes a XD blend that includes black pepper, fumarate and succinate.

Status is made to put you in an anabolic environment while decreasing cortisol and estrogen.


  • Increases performance and endurance
  • Clinically dosed ingredients that are proven to increase testosterone levels
  • Improves sleep and libido
  • Increases muscle mass while decreasing fat storage
  • Aggression, hunger and creatine uptake are all increased
  • Boosts testosterone levels and inhibits estrogen
  • Perfect for those over 30 years old
  • Contains basic minerals that increase testosterone production


  • Expensive (you get what you pay for)
  • Takes 2 weeks to notice difference (as with most test boosters)

5. AlphaMax XT by Performax Labs

AlphaMax XT is made to increase muscle growth and tesosterone while decreasing estrogen and providing the right vitamins and minerals to further support performance.


  • 1.4g Stinging Nettle
  • 300mg Mucuna Pruriens
  • 300mg Eurycoma Longifolia 200:1 (2% Eurycomanone)
  • 600mg Withania Somnifera (Ashwagandha)
  • 100mg DHAA (Dehydroabietic Acid)
  • 50mg Coleus Forskohlii

Performax has solid pre workouts and recently, they've finally released a solid muscle builder. 

It has a large number of testosterone enhancing ingredients ranging from stinging nettle​, mucuna pruriens, eurycoma longifola to estrogen / cortisol controlling ingredients like ashwagandha, dehydroabietic acid (DHAA) and coleus forskohlii. 

DHAA is an interesting ingredient here (aka Ahydroabietic Acid).

Inhibiting and limiting estrogen production, it’s able to act as a potent AI, leaving testosterone more readily available as it wouldn’t convert to estrogen.

AlphaMax XT doubles as a fat burner as coleus forskohlii is able to stimulate muscle synthesis and BMR.

Another research backed ingredient is Ferulic acid, this powerful compound to increase muscle mass, recovery, strength and overall performance in the gym and AlphaMax XT contains the exact amount used in the studies.
