Quick Take: Switzerland doesn’t really like participating in the conflicts of other countries but make no mistake, despite being generally neutral, the Swiss armed forces are still a bunch of badass men. That said, Swiss Navy Testosterone is one badass supplement. It’ll get your blood flowing, your sex drive rising, and your penis, well, erecting. More details on the review below.
- A product of Swiss Navy (MD Science Labs?) – A brand that manufacturers all kinds of stuff for sex including lubricants and masturbation creams.
- Not to be confused with Swiss Navy Testosterone Trigger which has likely been discontinued
- Has a similar formula with another Swiss Navy product: MAX Testosterone
- Forms 2/3 of the ZMA trio with Zinc and Magnesium but Zinc might be the only one capable of influencing testosterone here
- Includes a prop blend of 7 natural ingredients with herbs and an amino acid that all make an impact on sex
- Swiss Navy Testosterone is a little bit hard to buy simply because not many retailers sell it.

Swiss Navy Testosterone’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Magnesium – Increases “free” testosterone via SHBG inhibition. With just 20 mg though, it doesn’t seem all that useful especially since this oxide form is hardly absorbed by our bodies.
Zinc – Directly involved in testosterone synthesis, I consider this mineral as one of the most essential nutrients for healthy levels of testosterone. Like magnesium though, oxide isn’t Zinc’s best form. Fortunately, 15 mg fits the RDA.
Selenomethionine – This is an amino acid that contains Selenium – a mineral that, according to research, may be related to infertility if deficient.
- Horny Goat Weed – Standardized for 20% Icariin, Swiss Navy Testosterone supplies this herb in a potent form. It mimics the effects of testosterone (i.e., increased libido) without boosting the actual hormone.
- Tribulus Terrestris – Perhaps the most popular herb in testosterone products but in truth, it’s really not that much of a testosterone booster. It’s pretty good for libido though.
More on Tribulus Terrestris
According to research, Tribulus Terrestris has no effect on the testosterone levels of healthy young males. However, the results of another research on men who’re already deficient on test show that Tribulus supplementation “showed a statistically significant difference in the level of testosterone (total and free)”.
All in all, Tribulus seems to work ONLY on men with low pre-existing levels of testosterone such as older men. For more info on this herb, click here.
Ginkgo Biloba – Commonly found in brain supplements (nootropics) for its benefits on acetylcholine but it might also improve blood flow.
- Avena Sativa – Like the previous ingredient, Avena Sativa is commonly found in nootropics but may also have nitric oxide boosting properties which enhance circulation.
- Eurycoma Longifolia – AKA Tongkat Ali, this herb has traditionally been used for libido but studies have observed that it also has testosterone:cortisol balancing effects on moderately stressed people.
- L-Arginine – An amino acid popular in PWO bodybuilding products. It boosts circulation via increased nitric oxide.
- Cnidium Monnieri – An Asian herb that’s been used as a libido booster. In terms of testosterone, weak research suggests that a compound found in this plant (osthol) may increase androgens testosterone, LH, and FSH as well as nitric oxide.
Swiss Navy Testosterone Directions
Each serving of Swiss Navy Testosterone consists of 2 tablets and as instructed by Swiss Navy, we aren’t supposed to take these tablets at the same time. Instead, they recommend taking 1 tablet twice per day.
Let’s start with this product’s minerals. Swiss Navy Testosterone has Zinc, Magnesium, and Selenium but out of these 3, only Zinc seems capable of influencing testosterone. Magnesium would’ve done the job too but considering this low 20 mg dose, I say it probably won’t amount to much. Furthermore, Zinc’s oxide form here is hard to absorb. As such, I’m not really seeing a whole lot of T boosts.
Moving on to the prop blend, it has a total dosage of 1480 mg shared among 7 ingredients. That’s not necessarily the best I’ve seen but it’s quite adequate given the quality of the ingredients here. When it comes to effects, I’m seeing better sex as the primary benefit which isn’t actually surprising considering that Swiss Navy sells all kinds of things for sex. Which now brings up the question: how does Swiss Navy Testosterone make my sex life better?
According to the prioritization of ingredients in the prop blend, it all starts with elevated sex drive from potent Horny Goat Weed and Tribulus followed by nootropic/circulation enhancers in Ginkgo Biloba and Avena Sativa. With these, you should get a higher desire for sex and harder erections. This is then complemented by more libido and circulatory boosts from Tongkat Ali, L-Arginine, and Cnidium Monnieri. Pretty good strategy if you ask me.
Of course, the improved blood flow can also be used in gym for better muscle pumps but again, the formula seems to be more focused on intercourse rather than for growing muscles. In terms of testosterone, there’s not a lot here either with Tongkat Ali being the only reliable T booster since Tribulus and Cnidium Monierri aren’t that well backed by research.
Does it Work?
This all depends on how you intend to use Swiss Navy Testosterone. For sex, I’m pretty confident that it will. After all, the collective benefits of ALL the ingredients in the prop blend amount to a higher libido and a sturdier dick.
I have my doubts on Swiss Navy Testosterone’s effect on T though. With Zinc not in its best form and Tongkat Ali at the bottom half of the prop blend, this product is nowhere near elite level. However, it still might work for older men as Tongkat Ali and even Tribulus seem to be more effective under that demographic. Younger dudes, you might want to consider looking at a testosterone booster that’s geared more towards athletics.
- Zinc and Tongkat Ali – Pretty much the only ingredients here you can count on for testosterone
- Sex – The best thing about Swiss Navy Testosterone in my opinion
- Safe – There doesn’t seem to be any ingredient here that’ll cause any major side effects.
- Quality – Aside from Tongkat Ali, the herbs in the prop blend are given in potent extracts
- Zinc and Magnesium – Bad forms for both and low dosage for Magnesium.
- Proprietary – Why hide the dosages, man?
- Reviews – Or lack thereof. To my knowledge, Swiss Navy Testosterone currently has zero customer reviews.
- Hard to find – Both Amazon and GNC don’t have it. LuckyVitamin used to have it but is currently out of stock. The only places I found that sell Swiss Navy Testosterone are Swiss Navy themselves and eVitamins
The Bottom Line
Despite having the word “testosterone” in its name, Swiss Navy Testosterone isn’t actually a strong test booster but it’s still manly AF. With top-shelf herbs that elevate sex drive and improve blood flow (to your D, your brain, and your muscles), it looks to be a promising libido booster for men of the more mature population. If this is what being in the Swiss armed forces will get me, count me in.
