Quick Take: Bulls are some of the manliest animals on Earth so if a testosterone booster has a bull with a six pack flexing its biceps as its logo, it shouldn’t be wrong to think that the supplement grants the user some insane manly boosts, right? Wrong. Prime Test has a bull logo for a different reason and trust me, it’s quite intriguing. Read the review and find out.
- A product of the company Prime Labs, Prime Test is advertised on Amazon as a supplement that “fortifies metabolism and sexual libido”.
- Speaking of Amazon, its ratings stand at a whopping 4.6 out of 5. Don’t trust these ratings and reviews too much, though.
- The top ingredient in the Prime Test prop blend is Horny Goat Weed. SPOILER ALERT: It’s not a test booster.
- Has a couple of high quality ingredients in concentrated Tongkat Ali and chelated Boron.
- Also has Orchic Substance which is the reason for its bull logo.
- Available to buy online and in retail stores (not including GNC).

Prime Labs Prime Test’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Calcium – Most of us take Calcium to strengthen our bones but this mineral also serves a purpose in terms of muscle function. Don’t rely solely on Prime Test for your daily Calcium requirements though as this 44.28 mg dose is way too low compared to its RDA of 1000 mg.
- Horny Goat Weed – Super potent 100:1 concentrated extract but it’s still not a testosterone booster. Instead, it mimics the effects of testosterone (i.e., heightened sex drive) without altering hormonal levels.
- Tongkat Ali – A natural libido booster that also has testosterone boosting and cortisol regulating properties.
- Saw Palmetto – Has acids and phytosterols that inhibit the conversion of testosterone to DHT via suppression of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme.
Man, WTF was Prime Labs thinking using bull (or cattle) testicles as a supplement? Yeah, that’s what “orchic” is and I find it disturbing.
I get it though. Manly men back in the day ate bull testicles to promote testicular health and boost testosterone. Hell, seeing as how Prime Test by Prime Labs still uses it, some men in our current generation probably still eat bull balls too. The truth is though, there is no solid research (or any research for that matter) that supports this traditional claim.
- Wild Yam – The plant where DHEA, a testosterone precursor, is derived from. However, Wild Yam supplements and DHEA supplements are quite different so don’t expect this to boost your test.
- Sarsaparilla – Traditionally used to boost libido but doesn’t really do jack for testosterone.
Nettle – Think of Nettle as the Vladimir Putin of testosterone boosting. It kills testosterone terrorists 5-alpha-reductase, aromatase, and SHBG thereby liberating and increasing amounts of “free” testosterone.
- Boron – One of the best minerals of test, Boron boosts both total and “free” testosterone.
Prime Labs Prime Test Directions
Word for word, the label suggests to “take 2 caplets by mouth 1-2 times per day”. I mean, how else are you supposed to take caplets? Through your anus?
Sooo, calcium is calcium and it’s not a testosterone booster so let’s just leave it at that and head straight to Prime Test’s Testosterone Blend, ‘kay?
First thing I feel the need to talk about is that this blend is a friggin’ prop blend. I mean, literally everything here aside from Calcium has an unknown dosage and that’s just straight up bull sh*t. As of right now, Prime Test is leaning more towards my bad side but let’s check out the formula anyway and see if it can redeem itself.
For an 8 ingredient prop blend, this 1484 mg total dosage seems okay. Not the best but it’ll probably do some of these ingredients justice. Speaking of ingredients, Prime Test made a few questionable choices with the most notable being Orchic substance. Without any scientific research to its belt, the belief that bull testicle increases testosterone is simply just a myth.
Other ingredients that won’t do your testosterone any good are Sarsaparilla and Wild Yam. Sarsaparilla might enhance sex drive so that’s something but even that isn’t a sure thing. Horny Goat Weed on the other hand, is massively known to increase libido. That’s good. Still no test boosts though.
The remaining ingredients are Tongkat Ali, Saw Palmetto, Nettle, and Boron. Saw Palmetto and Nettle offer increased “free” testosterone via hormonal regulation, Tongkat Ali has a bodybuilding edge in that it helps in stress adaptation and total testosterone, and Boron basically does all these.
Does it Work?
Honestly? Not so much. The libido boosts you get from Tongkat Ali, Horny Goat Weed, and maybe even Sarsaparilla will get you feeling hornier than you can remember and this feeling might get you thinking, “Oh, my dick is up this morning so my testosterone must be high!”
No. It doesn’t work that way. Out of all the ingredients in Prime Test, only Boron stands out as a powerful testosterone booster and with the individual dosage undisclosed by Prime Test, I can’t tell you if it works or not but just in case it does, it’s nowhere near my favorite test boosters.
- Cheap – Prime Test is currently sold at Amazon for about 20 bucks. For a testosterone booster, that’s affordable.
- Reviews – More specifically, Amazon customer reviews. Remember what I said about feeling as if you’ve got your testosterone boosted? Yeah, these positive reviews most likely stem from that. There doesn’t seem to be any complaints of major side effects, too.
- Libido boosts – Speaking of feel goods, there’s this.
- Tongkat Ali – Potent AF.
- Boron – Powerful, effective, and given a decent form. Prime Test did good adding this manly mineral to their stack.
- Prop blend – I hate these things and if you like getting quality test boosters, you should too.
- Weak – The one word that, to me, best describes Prime Test.
- Poor design – Useless ingredients such as bull testicles and Wild Yam could’ve been swapped for better, and proven testosterone boosters such as Vitamin D3, Zinc, DAA, or Mucuna Pruriens.
Another bad thing I don’t like about Prime Test is that its label has typos such as Horney* Goat Weed and Sarsparilla* (Sarsaparilla).
Okay, okay. I get typos and grammatical errors from time to time too so I admit, I’m being a little too critical here. Whatever. But, you know what? It’s my job to be critical and if a product doesn’t give a rats ass about its label, how am I supposed to fully trust that they actually put effort into designing their formula? Think about that for a second.
The Bottom Line
Prime Test’s logo of a buff bull is spot on because they literally have the man parts of a bull inside their capsule. Aside from that though, everything else in the Prime Test formula is disappointing. Admittedly, there still seems to be some decent libido boosts here so if you’re planning on buying this, buy it for the sex and not the testosterone.
