Looking to gain muscle and lean out? Prime Test is a testosterone booster manufactured by Prime Labs designed to “restore your manhood.” If you think all testosterone boosters are the same, wait until you read the Prime Test ingredient list. One ingredient hidden under the name orchic substance is actually ground bull testicles (yes, you read that right). Do bull testicles actually benefit your testosterone production? We’ll come back to that, but first, let’s look at the product claims on the Prime Test Amazon.com page. According to the company, Prime Test can
- Optimize physical performance
- Aid in building stronger, leaner muscles
- Improve mood
How to Take Prime Test?Each bottle of Prime Test contains 60 capsules. Prime Labs recommends taking two capsules per day with a glass of water. There’s no need to cycle Prime Test since it supports your body’s natural testosterone production.
How much does Prime Test cost?Prime Test is one of the cheapest testosterone boosters on the market we’ve seen to date. On its Amazon.com page, it’s selling for $18.99 per bottle if you subscribe to an automatic monthly subscription and $19.99 for a one-time order. Free shipping is available with Amazon Prime or if you spend over $25. The company’s website primelabs.org offers a full money back guarantee, but at the time of writing, the “contact us” page brings up a 404-page error. The stipulations of the money-back guarantee are also not clear.
Prime Test IngredientsJust because Prime Test is cheap doesn’t mean it’s worth taking. Let’s break down the ingredients to see if they can actually benefit you. Unfortunately, Prime Test relies on a blend of ingredients. Why don’t we like blends? When companies individually list ingredients, it’s easy to compare the dosages to the research. When the ingredients are listed in a blend, you don’t know how much of each substance you’re getting. This means that you could be getting next to none of the research-backed ingredients and tons of filler. Here’s the list of ingredients per two capsules:
- Calcium Carbonate – 44.28mg
- Testosterone Blend -1484mg
- Horny Goat Weed
- Tongkat Ali Extract
- Saw Palmetto
- Orchic Substance
- Wild Yam Extract
- Nettle Extract
Prime Test Research BreakdownHere’s what the research says about each of the main components of Prime Test.
- Calcium: Zinc, magnesium, and B vitamins are commonly included in testosterone boosters. Of these, zinc is the most research-backed for improving testosterone levels. Unfortunately, it’s not included in Prime Test. It’s a little strange that Prime Labs decided to include Calcium. Research shows calcium is not an effective testosterone booster (1).
- Horny Goat Weed: As you can guess by the name, horny goat weed can increase your sex drive. It does this through its active component icariin. Research in rat studies supports its use as a testosterone booster (2).
- Tongkat Ali: Tongkat Ali is one of the most common ingredients in testosterone boosters. Is it effective? Right now, research shows it may have a slight testosterone boosting effect (3).
- Saw Palmetto: Saw Palmetto is another common ingredient in testosterone boosters. Research doesn’t back its ability to increase testosterone (4). It’s probably included as a filler.
- Orchic Substance (Bull Testicles): This is definitely the most interesting ingredient. As gross as it may sound, some people think if you eat the glands responsible for testosterone production you may increase your own testosterone levels. Too bad there’s no research to support this claim. The only websites backing orchic substance as a testosterone booster seem to be websites selling snake oils.
- Wild Yam Extract: No research backs the use of wild yam extract as a testosterone booster.
- Sarsparilla: Research doesn’t support sarsparilla as a testosterone booster.
- Nettle Root: Current research on nettle root shows it doesn’t affect testosterone levels (5).
- Boron: More research needs to be done on boron to confirm its testosterone boosting effects. However, the little research available looks promising. One study found 11.6mg of boron supplement per day increased free testosterone (6).
