Quick Take: With a label and a name that hints on being the ultimate or the best for getting you a full tank of testosterone, boostULTIMATE is surprisingly pretty weak. It is, however, a #1 best seller in Amazon so it must be doing something right, right? Let’s head to the review and find out.
- boostULTIMATE is advertised on their label to be the ultimate male enhancement formula. SPOILER ALERT! It’s not.
- Interestingly, the boostULTIMATE website seems to hint on this product being a penis enlargement pill. Oh, man. This sparks a whole ‘nother conversation.
- Their proprietary blend consists of 13 ingredients that share a total dose of 745 mg.
- Outside of the prop blend are 3 herbs and an amino acid that all have benefits for sex.
- A #1 Best Seller on Amazon where it has already garnered 7,133 customer reviews.
- Obviously, it’s available to buy on Amazon. It costs 20 bucks for a bottle that should last a month. GNC doesn’t seem to have it.

boostULTIMATE’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Tongkat Ali – A traditional libido booster that also has benefits to bodybuilding and testosterone. According to this research, Tongkat Ali can increase testosterone by up to 37% while also lowering cortisol, the stress hormone, by 16%.
Maca – At a 0.6% extract, this potent form of Maca is capable of enhancing sex drive and sperm quality. No testosterone boosts here, though.
L-Arginine – By increasing blood flow, L-Arginine may indirectly support testosterone production via enhanced circulation to the testes. The improved circulation also makes it a popular supplement among gym-rats.
There’s actually a lot of ginseng around the world. In fact, Maca is otherwise known as “peruvian ginseng”. However, boostULTIMATE failed to specify which ginseng they’re using. Widely used in testosterone boosting products though, is Panax (Asian) Ginseng so I’ll assume that’s what boostULTIMATE has.
That said, Panax Ginseng is hailed as a legendary adaptogen that helps the body adapt to stress as well as fighting back the testosterone-killing prolactin. In this way, Panax Ginseng may also indirectly influence testosterone.
- Saraparilla – NOTE: That’s how boostULTIMATE spells it but it’s really “sarsaparilla”. Another natural sex enhancer that doesn’t seem to boost testosterone.
- Pumpkin Seed – You may think of pumpkins as a part of Halloween tradition but its seeds have testosterone boosting value. Containing nutrients such as Leucine and Magnesium, Pumpkin seed may help promote healthy testosterone.
- Muira Puama – Similar to “saraparila”, Muira Puama has been traditionally used as a libido booster but research regarding its ability to also boost testosterone is weak.
- Oat Straw – Promoting creativity through alpha brain waves, Oat Straw also has Nitric Oxide boosting properties that enhance circulation.
- Nettle – With compounds that inhibit aromatase, 5a-reductase, and SHBG activity, Nettle can help boost “free” testosterone.
- Cayenne – Spicy, sure, but it also helps in digestion which then leads to better nutrient absorption.
- Astralagus – Without necessarily boosting testosterone, Astralagus still looks good for male health by improving sperm.
Catauba Bark – Aaaand another typo from boostULTIMATE. It’s actually spelled “catuaba” but whatever. This one’s another libido booster that works even in the realm of sleep (i.e., erotic dreams).
- Licorice – 50 times sweeter than sugar but it’s anything but sweet for testosterone. In fact, it increases cortisol and decreases testosterone so not only do you get less manly, you get stressed the freak out, too.
- Tribulus Terrestris – As if boostULTIMATE doesn’t have enough already, here’s more of those sex enhancers that don’t really do sh*t for testosterone.
- Orchic – Do you want ground up bull testicles in your system? No? Well, sorry bro ’cause that’s what orchic is.
- Oyster – A natural testosterone boosting stack in itself, Oyster has the highest amounts of Zinc. Moreover, it still has other manly nutrients such magnesium, Vitamin B12, and Vitamin B6.
- Boron – One of the manliest minerals out there, Boron is like a booster of testosterone boosters. It increases levels of test boosters Vitamin D and magnesium while also directly boosting both total and “free” testosterone.
Take two capsules (1 serving) per day.
Starting with the ingredients that are not in the prop blend, all 4 of them are great for sex. Tongkat Ali, Maca, and Ginseng are all natural libido boosters while the improved circulation from L-Arginine helps get you rock solid erections. These ingredients are also decent for testosterone and in building muscle but they could’ve been better with better forms and dosages.
Moving on to the problem. Err, sorry. I meant prop blend. Kidding aside though, the boostULTIMATE prop blend is a problem. With 13 ingredients and a meager 745 mg total dosage, each ingredient only gets an average of 57 mg and in case you didn’t know, that’s waaaaaay too low.
Some supplements, however, sort of make up for their lack of dosage with premium quality ingredients. boostULTIMATE? Dirt cheap. Aside from Astralagus, Licorice, Boron, and Oyster, all the other ingredients in their prop blend are given in plain powder which makes it so much harder for our bodies to absorb them.
So, what do you get with low absorbability and low dosages? Simple – an even lower chance for the prop blend to work. If it does work though, don’t except too much because Boron is the only strong testosterone booster on that list. The rest of them are under-researched libido boosters that may or may not work for test.
Does it Work?
Hmm. That’s honestly pretty hard to tell. Disregarding the weak boostULTIMATE prop blend that most probably won’t work, we’re left with the ingredients whose dosages we actually do have knowledge to.
That said, they’re first and foremost libido boosters. So if the question was if boostULTIMATE would improve your bedroom experience, I’d say yes. However, if we’re talking about testosterone, Tongkat Ali seems to be the strongest candidate but in just its plain form, even this 400 mg dosage proves to be doubtful.
- Tongkat Ali – The highest dosed ingredient in boostULTIMATE that seems to be keeping this product afloat as a testosterone booster.
- Maca – Legit form, legit dosage, legit libido.
- Boron – I don’t know how much of this mineral is in boostULTIMATE so I’m not sure it’ll work but it’s still one of the best minerals for male health.
- Decent Amazon ratings – It’s an Amazon best seller for some reason. The customer reviews seem to be divided between “it works” and “no, it doesn’t” though.
- Safe – An all natural ingredient such as this should be safe and free of any major side effects.
- Prop Blend – Having a prop blend in your formula already sucks but one that’s poorly executed is even worse.
- Dosage – Speaking of a poorly executed prop blend, the total dosage is just garbage for 13 ingredients.
- Quality – Sorry boostULTIMATE but I’m not done being critical about your prop blend. Try upgrading the quality of your ingredients next time, eh?
The Bottom Line
The boostULTIMATE prop blend is badly designed with mostly under-researched and sh*t quality ingredients combined with a dosage that’s too damn low for most of its constituents to work. Thankfully though, boostULTIMATE has ingredients outside of its prop blend and even though they’re mostly not in great forms as well, their dosages are high enough to at least provide minimal potential for male health.
