Quick Take: On first glance, I already had a bad impression on MaximFit Test Booster because the first thing I saw was a proprietary blend. These blends are abominations to the supplement world but in my experience writing reviews, I’ve seen products that hide their dosages in prop blends and still come out decent. I was hoping MaximFit Test Booster would be the same. Unfortunately, my first impression might be right but let’s review the formula anyway.
- MaximFit Test Booster is the “new and improved” testosterone product of MaximFit™
- As the label suggests, it’s designed for mass and strength. Reality is though, there doesn’t seem to be an ingredient that directly impacts both.
- Has good quality ingredients in several herbal extracts and chelated boron
- Comes with libido boosters that heighten sex drive independent of test boosts
- Aside from libido boosters, MaximFit Test Booster also has a couple of under researched and outdated ingredients
- Available to buy online and in retail stores including Amazon and GNC

MaximFit Test Booster’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Horny Goat Weed – I think the best description of this herb is the name itself. Simply said, horny goat weed makes goats horny but apparently, it works on humans too. Unfortunately though, this increase in sex drive isn’t chained to boosts in testosterone.
Tongkat Ali – Known more popularly as a traditional libido booster, Tongkat Ali also looks capable of boosting “free” testosterone via SHBG reduction and improving the ratio between cortisol and testosterone.
Saw Palmetto – Research shows that saw palmetto may be able to boo”free” testosterone by preventing it from converting into DHT. Inhibiting this conversion seems beneficial in a way that too much DHT may lead to prostate problems (BPH). However, DHT is also a more potent androgen than testosterone so do be careful about messing with this hormone.
Orchic Substance – Cattle testicles. Yeah, you read that right. That’s what orchic substance is. It’s been used in the olden days to supposedly improve prostate health and masculine vigor but that’s just outdated mythology at this point as there really isn’t any science to prove this.
Wild Yam – This plant contains DHEA which is a precursor to steroid hormones such as testosterone. Because of this, people keep thinking that taking Wild Yam supplements might actually boost test. Research on wild yam itself as a testosterone booster, however, is scarce so I wouldn’t bet on it.
Did you know?
DHEA, because it’s a precursor to testosterone, has earned itself a “banned substance” status in several sports leagues. However, the reality is that even if it’s a banned substance, it doesn’t actually do much for men and testosterone. It is, however, quite the promising anti-aging supplement. (For more info on DHEA, click here).
Sarsaparilla – Sexual stimulant. Doesn’t look it boosts testosterone though.
Nettle – Popular as a natural treatment for prostate conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), Nettle may also be capable of boosting “free” testosterone by limiting the activity of SHBG and suppressing testosterone’s conversion to estrogen and DHT.
Boron – Finally, MaximFit Test Booster is looking like a legit testosterone booster. It’s capable of not only boosting total testosterone (and DHT), but also “free” testosterone via estriadol and SHBG reduction. Furthermore, amino acid chelate is one of the better absorbed forms of this manly mineral so I like what I’m seeing.
MaximFit Test Booster Directions
Each serving of MaximFit Test Booster consists of 1 tablet but as the instructions say, we’re supposed to take two servings (2 tablets) per day – one in the morning and another one before workout.
MaximFit Test Booster is a proprietary formula with a total dosage of 1484 mg per day. With 8 ingredients, it doesn’t look like the best dosage but it should still be adequate with each ingredient getting an average of 185.5 mg. In terms of ingredient quality, MaximFit Test Booster looks pretty neat with herbal extracts and a highly bioavailable version of Boron. In terms of total dosage and potency, MaximFit Test Booster seems to pass the eye test.
In terms of actually boosting testosterone though, MaximFit Test Booster looks more focused on boosting “free” test. It achieves this by reducing SHBG levels as well as limiting test conversion to estrogen and DHT. Furthermore, the plants responsible for suppressing this DHT conversion are also herbs used in treating prostate conditions, adding a twist of prostate protection to the MaximFit Test Booster formula.
To be honest though, although MaximFit Test Booster does look capable of boosting “free” testosterone, the boosts look below average. Boron is the strongest testosterone booster here and it’s not getting much help.
The inclusion of ingredients that don’t do sh*t for testosterone isn’t helping its cause either. I mean, horny goat weed and sarsaparilla are great for libido but this elevated sex drive doesn’t translate to boosted test. To make matters worse, there’s also cattle testicles and wild yam. Whatever milligrams these ingredients are consuming could’ve been used for better proven test boosters such as Zinc and Vitamin D3.
Does it Work?
It looks like it could but because the specific dosages of each ingredient is hidden within a proprietary blend, there’s really no accurate way of gauging how well it could do. Regardless, MaximFit Test Booster does look like it has the ability to boost “free” testosterone, protect the prostate, and boost libido albeit to a mild degree.
This boost in “free” testosterone may be beneficial to bodybuilding as well. With sufficient boosts in bioavailable test, developing bigger muscles via exercise should be easier. Again, however, the boosts in “free” testosterone don’t look so powerful so don’t expect to be The Hulk when you do decide to take MaximFit Test Booster.
- Quality – Herbal extracts and bioavailable boron? I’ll take it.
- All Natural – No man-made synthetic ingredients here.
- Safe – An all natural formula generally means its free of any major side effects. To my knowledge, there also doesn’t seem to be any negative interactions among the MaximFit Test Booster ingredients so you should be fine.
- Prostate protection – Good for older men with prostate problems due to excessive amounts of DHT
- Proprietary – These kinds of blends suck, man. Why do these products even feel the need to hide their dosages?
- Weak – The testosterone boosts you get from MaximFit Test Booster don’t even begin to tickle some of the best in the business.
- Waste-of-space ingredients – Orchic substance and wild yam could’ve been replaced with scientifically proven testosterone boosters. While we’re at it, let’s get horny goat weed and sarsaparilla out of here too.
- Virtually unknown – It’s either that or it’s that no one is buying the hype on this product. I say this because on both Amazon and GNC, I’m not seeing any customer reviews. Not even a single one.
- “Other Ingredients” – This part of the formula contains fillers like magnesium stearate that hurt nutrient absorption
The Bottom Line
“First impressions last” is what a lot of people say. I never truly believed this but with MaximFit Test Booster, this line seems quite fitting. The prop blend left a bad first impression on me and the formulation made that impression stay. I’m not saying MaximFit Test Booster doesn’t have any benefit though because it does. However, whatever benefit it has (“free” testosterone, prostate health, and libido) seems minor.
