Quick Take: If you’re looking for testosterone boosters that’re downright effective, you’ve come to the right place. In this versus review, I’ll be walking you through two of the best T boosters that currently roam the market. They are similarly built supplements with, obviously, a whole lot in common but they also have their subtle differences and these are ultimately what will decide this battle’s winner. Let the games begin!
Prime Male Features
- Prime Male is labeled as a scientifically driven natural formula and true enough, all its ingredients are backed by research
- Primarily powered by 1600 mg of chelated DAA (D-AA-CC)
- Has the individual elements of the legendary ZMA trio with improved and top-quality forms
- Aside from D-AA-CC and ZMA, Prime Male also has the rest of my favorite T boosting nutrients such as Vitamin D3, Boron and Mucuna Pruriens
- To further improve the formulas potency, Prime Male adds in 10 mg of BioPerine

- A product of TEK Naturals that’s humbly advertised as being a natural booster and yes, all its ingredients are 100% natural
- Fueled by a heavy 2000 mg of sodium bound DAA
- Has a mini-stack of 3 B Vitamins including B2, B5, and B6 and 70 mg of Oyster Extract (NOTE: TestoFuel, another top supplement, also uses Oyster Extract)
- Excluding magnesium, TestoTEK also includes 2/3 of the ZMA trio
- Besides those ingredients, this stack also has a few of most important nutrients for testosterone including Vitamin D3, Zinc, and Mucuna Pruriens

Prime Male VS. TestoTEK: My Analysis
Prime Male and TestoTEK are both 12-ingredient formulas but 8 out of those 12 are the same. For this very reason, I see Prime Male and TestoTEK as similarly built supplements. However, despite having similar ingredients on paper, these ingredients differ in terms of form and dosage. I placed them side-by-side for better comparison. Check it out.
|Vitamin D3||5000 IU||2000 IU|
|Vitamin K2||45 mcg as MK-7||50 mcg|
|Vitamin B6||7.5 mg as P-5-P||50 mg as Pyridoxine HCl|
|Zinc||30 mg as Zinc Citrate||25 mg as Zinc Oxide|
|D-Aspartic Acid||1600 mg as D-AA-CC||2000 mg as DAA|
|Mucuna Pruriens||300 mg (15% L-DOPA)||175 mg (40% L-DOPA)|
|Nettle Extract||160 (10:1)||100 mg|
|Ginseng||120 mg of 4:1 Korean Ginseng||50 mg of Siberian Ginseng|
The list above includes some of the best natural testosterone boosters in the industry. Most notably, both products include Zinc, DAA, Mucuna Pruriens, and Vitamin D3. Among these, TestoTEK has the edge on Mucuna Pruriens but Prime Male has the advantage over the others in terms form and/or dosage.
What about Vitamin B6, K2, and Ginseng?
TestoTEK’s Vitamin B6 looks better on paper for its 50 mg over Prime Male’s 7.5 mg. However, research only suggests that B6 depletion can cause lower levels of testosterone, making B6 potentially essential for promoting healthy but NOT necessarily boosted levels of test. That said, Prime Male’s comparatively low 7.5 mg dose is still quite adequate especially since Prime Male has the better absorbed form of P-5-P.
In terms of K2, TestoTEK has a small margin over Prime Male in terms of dosage (50 mg>45 mg) but it’s also worth noting that TestoTEK doesn’t specify the form they used whereas Prime Male’s MK-7 has been observed to be more bioavailable than its MK-4 counterpart. When it comes to Ginseng, both have adaptogenic properties which give both supplements a twist of cortisol regulation but Prime Male’s Asian ginseng has had better overall results in terms of male health.
Just by those ingredients, I give the edge to Prime Male. Adding in the rest of both formulas though, the battle gets a lot more intense. TestoTEK gets more boosts in testosterone from Fenugreek and Oyster Extract as well as boosts in food and energy metabolism from the other B vitamins while Prime Male also gets added T boosts from Boron and Magnesium as well as estrogen regulation and nutrient absorption from Luteolin and BioPerine. Which now begs the question…
Conclusion: Which is Better?
Prime Male wins this battle. I’ve already explained why Prime Male gets the better of TestoTEK in terms of their similar ingredients but adding the rest of the formula into the equation, Prime Male is the more well-rounded formula overall because of its effective estrogen regulation which means you also get more “free” T. There’s also the case about BioPerine improving the overall potency of its already potent set of ingredients.
However, Prime Male is a bit harder to find than TestoTEK because it can only be exclusively bought on their website whereas TestoTEK is available on other retailers including Amazon. If you’re fine with sacrificing a tad bit of power for convenience, I see nothing wrong with choosing TestoTEK. Also, TestoTEK is probably better at helping your body convert food into energy so take that into consideration as well.
