Quick Take: First thing’s first: this review on PEScience Erase Pro Plus won’t quite be like the other reviews you’ll see here. Why? Because this supplement wasn’t made to boost testosterone in the first place (it probably still does as a secondary benefit though). Instead, it’s more for the hormones that’re ANTI-testosterone such as estrogen and cortisol. Interesting, eh? Read further down to find out more.

PEScience Erase Pro Plus Ingredients
|Erase Pro+ Proprietary Blend||1,000 mg|
|Ashwagandha Root Extract (KSM-66®)(675 mg), Boerhaavia Diffusa Root Extract, Uncaria Tomentosa Bark Extract, Pine Bark Extract (containing Abieta-8, 11, 13-trien-18-oic acid) (nDHAA™)|
PEScience Erase Pro Plus’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
KSM-66® – At 675 mg, this branded form of Ashwagandha takes up more than half the total dosage of PEScience Erase Pro Plus. It’s an adaptogenic herb that helps fight back stress by lowering levels of cortisol. It’s also been shown to enhance muscle mass and strength as well as increase testosterone.
Boerhaavia Diffusa – Uncommon in testosterone boosting supplements, this plant has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine for numerous health concerns including inflammation, pain, and indigestion. For male health, Boerhaavia Diffusa might be capable of reducing estrogen and cortisol but research on this is pretty weak.
Uncaria Tomentosa – May have anti-estrogenic effects by inhibiting estriadol from binding to its receptors. Again, research on this is weak.
It’s actually a pretty new supplement but its already making waves in the bodybuilding scene for its potentially powerful anti-aromatase properties. Admittedly, research on this is also weak but compared to the previous two ingredients, this one seems a lot more promising.
PEScience Erase Pro Plus Directions
Each serving of Erase Pro Plus consists of 2 capsules and as instructed by PEScience, these 2 capsules are to be taken in the morning with food. So basically, take 1 serving with breakfast.
Taking up more than half the entire Erase Pro Plus dosage is Ashwagandha (KSM-66). As I said, it’s an adaptogen that’s capable of increasing testosterone, muscle mass, and strength. These effects are no doubt masculine but to PEScience Erase Pro Plus, these are all just added bonuses to Aswagandha’s ability to limit cortisol – a stress hormone that when elevated, is catabolic in nature and disrupts the growth and recovery of muscles as well as lowers test levels.
The next ingredients, in theory, seem to be work well with Aswagandha’s effects. However, with a total dosage of just 1000 mg and the 675 mg already taken up by Ashwagandha, what’s left is a meager 325 mg. To be honest, I’m not too sure if that amount is enough for the next 3 ingredients because, well, there’s not much scientific evidence on Boerhaavia Diffusa, Uncaria Tomentosa, and Dehydroabietic acid.
The way I see it though, PEScience placed these exotic ingredients in the Erase Pro Plus formula for their ability to further limit cortisol and add an anti-estrogen twist to the supplement. Theoretically, lowering levels of cortisol and estrogen should make room for more bioavailable testosterone.
This, in effect, creates an internal environment that’s anabolic in nature so your muscles to respond faster to exercise. This, again, depends on whether these ingredients actually work which as of this moment, no one has the science to know for sure.
To be fair though, PEScience doesn’t look like they designed Erase Pro Plus to primarily be a testosterone booster. According to them, Erase Pro Plus is a “hardening agent” that’s “geared towards that stage-ready we are all after”. There’s no mention of testosterone at all in its marketing.
However, when you online shop at GNC and type in the word “testosterone” on the search bar, you’ll be routed to their “hardcore supplements” page where you’ll see PEScience Erase Pro Plus among several other choices. Despite not actually boosting testosterone though, regulating cortisol and estrogen indirectly influences test levels and, more importantly to its target demographic, bodybuilding.
Does it Work?
For testosterone, PEScience Erase Pro Plus will work as far as Ashwagandha can take it. It’s a great natural testosterone booster and at a clinically studied brand of KSM-66®, it becomes even better. However, the 3 other ingredients don’t really hold the same evidence as Aswagandha so I personally wouldn’t place my money on any of them. That said, PEScience Erase Pro Plus is a weak testosterone booster.
“But didn’t you just say PEScience Erase Pro Plus wasn’t meant to be a testosterone booster?” Smart question, Mr. Reader, and yes, it wasn’t. It was formulated to regulate cortisol and estrogen and in that aspect, Erase Pro Plus looks promising. As of right now though, let’s just wait for the researchers to do their thing.
- Innovative – The formula, although unproven, is unique. If science proves these ingredients to work on people, Erase Pro Plus may just be able to push bodybuilding supplements one step further.
- KSM-66® – For male health, you probably can’t go wrong with premium Ashwagandha
- Safe – There’s always extra caution when dealing with under-researched ingredients but as far as the customer reviews are concerned, there doesn’t seem to be any major side effects
- Exotics – Boerhaavia Diffusa, Uncaria Tomentosa, and Dehydroabietic acid aren’t well researched
- Proprietary – It’s a big deal not knowing how much dosage each and every ingredient is getting and Erase Pro Plus doesn’t seem to get that
- Not a testosterone booster – It probably will with Ashwagandha but boosting test isn’t its primary design
The Bottom Line
As a cortisol support, PEScience Erase Pro Plus looks to have succeeded with Ashwagandha and 3 exotic ingredients that also potentially contribute to regulating estrogen. These effects, if successful, look to favor the dudes who take their bodybuilding seriously and put their bodies under intense physical stress on a daily basis. For testosterone though, PEScience Erase Pro Plus just doesn’t compare to the elites.
