Quick Take: Revolution Test is like that overly health conscious aunt that tells you to stop eating bacon and start eating your vegetables. But, I mean, it’s bacon. Who the hell lets go of bacon? And your aunt probably knows this too because eventually, she just tells you to eat a moderate amount of meaty perfection with those boring greens. That’s what Revolution Test does. In this review, I’ll show you how this supplement gives you your favorite androgen while protecting your body from the potential harm of excessive T.

Revolution Test’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Vitamin C – This vitamin has pre-workout potential but shouldn’t be used in conjunction with endurance training as it could be counterproductive
Selenium – Similar to vitamin C, Selenium is an antioxidant that protects cells from damage. No testosterone boosts here but still a healthy addition.
Testosterone Amplification Blend
- D-Aspartic Acid – This is an ingredient that has shown to directly increase levels of testosterone by 42% in just 12 days (NOTE: the study showing this uses a branded form of DAA). Unfortunately, the dosage here is not enough for DAA to make any kind of significant effect (if any).
- Fenugreek – Standardized to 50% Saponins, Fenugreek is an ancient Chinese tonic that’s popularly used for sex and athletics. As a testosterone booster, this herb inhibits 5-alpha-reductase and aromatase activity.
- Tongkat Ali – It’s been traditionally used as a potent sex enhancer and according to this study, TA also has the capacity to increase testosterone by 37% while decreasing stress by limiting the activity of SHBG and lowering cortisol levels by 16%.
Liver Enzyme Regulation Matrix
- N-Acetyl L-Cystine (NAC) – According to this research, NAC being an antioxidant has a positive influence on the liver. Although the study being stated here is about alcohol intake, the liver protection it provides is essential for serious bodybuilding.
- Milk Thistle – Standardized to 80% Silymarin, Milk Thistle should be a common sight for bodybuilders looking for liver detoxification.
- Red Yeast Rice – According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, Red Yeast Rice lowers levels of “bad” cholesterol. Essentially leading to a healthier heart.
- Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) – This is an important ingredient considering that Red Yeast Rice has shown to decrease levels of CoQ10. This enzyme has potential fat-loss and energy enhancing properties.
- Saw Palmetto – Popularly used for promoting prostatic health and sex drive, Saw Palmetto works by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase.
- Pygeum Bark – According to this study, Pygeum is useful in treating men suffering from BPH. Which essentially means it’s a healthy ingredient for prostate health.
- Stinging Nettle – As a testosterone booster, Nettle is believed to inhibit aromase, 5a-reductase, and SHBG.
- Lycopene – The studies surrounding this ingredient are centered on preventing prostate cancer. This could suggest Lycopene’s positive influence on prostate health.
- Brassaiopsis glomerulata – Standardized to 10% dehydroloiolide and 20% n-benzol-l-phenylalanine methyl ester, this is a potential aromatase inhibitor. That’s cool and all but the ingredient does lack human evidence.
Revolution Test Directions
Take 2 capsules (1 serving) of REVOLUTION TEST™ once or twice daily. For best results, use for 4-8 weeks but don’t exceed 8 weeks of continued use.
As stated on their warning, DO NOT exceed suggested dose. This means you SHOULD NOT take more than 4 capsules a day and SHOULD take a 2-4 week “off” cycle after using for 4-8 weeks.
Vitamin C and Selenium add a little bit of pre-workout and antioxidant benefit to this formula. That’s basically it for Revolution Test’s vitamins and minerals. Let’s move on to the prop blends.
First of all, Revolution Test’s Testosterone Amplification Blend looks to boost test both directly and indirectly. Indirectly, they seem to increase levels of “free” testosterone by blocking the binding of T to SHBG and inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to the manlier hormone DHT. At just 750 mg though, DAA doesn’t seem to be playing a huge role in this formula’s direct testosterone boosts.
The Prostate Shield prop blend, as the name suggests, protects our prostates from harm. Saw Palmetto and Stinging Nettle further promote testosterone by blocking its conversion to estrogen and DHT while also further blocking SHBG. Pygeum and Lycopene are this prop blend’s science-backed prostate protectors. The role of Letrosterone™ in this formula, if it works, is to block aromatase activity which then leads to less testosterone converted to estrogen.
With that, we’re done with the “bacon” of this formula. The ingredients in those prop blends are essentially the tasty, testosteroney part. Now, we move on to this supplement’s “salad” – the healthy bit of the formula.
Revolution Test’s Liver Enzyme Regulation Matrix, obviously, is meant to protect your liver from the negative effects of altering hormonal levels. Personally, I think this is essential to ALL testosterone boosters they do deal with hormones. Sadly, it’s not a common sight. Kudos to Revolution Test for this.
Cardiovascular Support. This one I’m not so sure about. The idea seems to stem from the excessive cholesterol levels being associated with increase in testosterone. Natural statins such as Red Yeast Rice might decrease testosterone synthesis by decreasing cholesterol. However, considering that it blocks “bad” cholesterol, this blend might actually still be beneficial.
Does it Work?
With Fenugreek, Tongkat Ali, and the supporting ingredients in the Prostate Shield prop blend, I’m pretty sure it boosts testosterone. Sadly, DAA which might actually be the most powerful testosterone boosting supplement isn’t dosed enough to produce MASSIVE T-boosts.
Nonetheless, Revolution Test acts like an actual revolt by attacking and defending. In terms of testosterone, Revolution Test attacks by mildly to moderately increasing test while defending against testosterone killers aromatase, 5a-reductase, and SHBG. In terms of overall health, Revolution Test has a 3-pronged defense centered around prostate, cardiac, and liver health.
If you’re the muscle head concerned about his health, this could be the right supplement for you.
- No Side Effects – It’s a health conscious testosterone booster for a reason. Also, the customer reviews don’t seem to indicate anything major and If you take a look back at the warning, it specifically says you might experience acne or aggression which is typical of anything that alters hormonal status. Take your girlfriend’s period for example.
- Quality ingredients – There’s a lot of high quality standardized ingredients here.
- Revolutionary – It’s not everyday I see a testosterone booster that also targets liver and cardiac health.
- Cheap – 30$ for a formula like this? I’ll take it!
- Wasted Ingredient – Specifically, DAA. This would’ve been so much more powerful if DAA was dosed right.
- Letrosterone™ – Well, the aromatase inhibition isn’t bad. The lack of human evidence is.
- Weak T-boosts – With ingredients such as Fenugreek and Tongkat Ali which are primarily libido boosters before they are T-boosters the only viable ingredients in the Testosterone Amplification Blend, there’s really not a whole lot of testosterone boosting that happens around this formula.
- PROP BLENDS – Simply said, I hate these. To Revolution Test’s credit though, these are actually pretty good prop blends.
The Bottom Line
Given that Revolution Test targets other aspects of overall health that a lot of other testosterone boosters brush to the side, I’d say this formula is on a class of its own. That being said and considering the weak testosterone spikes this formula gives, it might be best to stack this with a more powerful testosterone booster. FinaFlex suggests Revolution Test Stack which is basically Revolution Test and Pure Test. This looks like a good pairing considering that Revolution Test has a low dosed DAA while Pure Test is powered by a heavy 3 g.
To conclude this review, I say listen to your overly health conscious aunt. Eat your bacon in moderation but take the healthy stuff too.
