Quick Take: The first thing you’ll notice when you get to Ultra T Gold’s web page is a couple around the age of 40 or 50. This should already give you a clue as to what this supplement is for. It aims to boost “free” testosterone. And with the ingredient choices that they made, this looks to be beneficial to older males who’re looking to bring back their youthful libido. This review, like the rest of my reviews, will show you in detail how their formula stacks up against the best of the best and if it’s actually worth trying.
- A product of Ageless Foundation Laboratories, UltraT Gold™ is looking to help you release yourself from the chains of aging by restoring youthful levels of “free” test and libido.
- Not about the supplement but their website looks perfectly designed to attract older people. It’s simple and the touch of gold looks suitable for men in their “golden years”.
- Advertised on their label to be a natural free testosterone booster.
- All the ingredients look safe and their website specifically says that it’s drug free so you shouldn’t have to worry about side effects.
- Testofen seems to be this formula’s main ingredient.
- You can buy it on Amazon at around $30. It’s found on other online retailers too but I could find it on GNC.

Ultra T Gold’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Testofen® – A branded form of Fenugreek that’s standardized to have 50% Fenusides. This herb has shown potential in both sex and athletic performance. As a testosterone booster though, it has also shown to increase levels of “free” test by inhibiting aromatase and 5a-reductase activity.
Male Enhancement Blend
- Saw Palmetto – This study states that this herb might boost testosterone by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase. This prevents the conversion of testosterone to DHT which then increases levels of “free” test.
- Astragalus – As a testosterone booster, this herb seems to be under-researched. A rat study did show that it protects the quality of sperm cells but I’m not entirely sure if it translates to testosterone boosts.
- Phytosterol – Or more importantly, standardized to 40% Beta Sitosterol. I say “more importantly” because this plant steroid is found inside plants such as Saw Palmetto and Stinging Nettle and is in-charge of limiting the conversion of T to DHT.
- Asian Ginseng – There a lot of species under the Ginseng family but the most researched is this. According to this study, Panax (Asian) Ginseng can support total and “free” testosterone, DHT, FSH, and LH while also lowering levels of the female hormone prolactin. So manly!
- Tribulus – Despite its popularity in testosterone boosting supplements, it’s not really a strong testosterone booster. According to this study though, it did manage to increase testosterone levels in men who were already suffering low levels of test. However, another study showed that it didn’t have the same androgenic effect for younger, healthy males.
- L-Arginine – This compound boosts Nitric Oxide for better blood flow.
Ultra T Gold Directions
Take two capsules (1 seving) per day on an empty stomach and a full glass of water.
The ingredients found here aren’t anything new. These are basically found in a whole lot of testosterone boosters. However, just because they’re found in the majority, doesn’t mean they all work. In reality, only Testofen and Ginseng offer clear cut testosterone boosts. The others? Well, they’re effects are a little blurry.
Beta Sitosterol and Saw Palmetto go hand in hand because one of the active compounds in Saw Palmetto is Beta Sitosterol. These two might boost “free” testosterone by inhibiting 5a-reductase and thus, blocking the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Additionally, Fenugreek does this same effect too with the addition of estrogen regulation.
Thankfully, Ultra T Gold™ also has another ingredient that brings the DHT levels back up. Asian Ginseng has shown to increase a wide number of manly hormones which include testosterone and DHT. The adaptogenic properties help in stress-relief too.
Next on the list, we have Tribulus. Simply said, it doesn’t boost testosterone as much as it does sex. Which then leads me to conclude that Ultra T Gold is a libido enhancer more than it is a testosterone booster. See, all of the ingredients here translate to a better experience under the sheets. Let me explain.
Fenugreek and Panax Ginseng can both increase levels of “free” testosterone. The Beta Sitosterol in Saw Palmetto, if it does indeed work, also raises “free” test levels. This rise in testosterone would also give rise to boosts in libido so you feel extra kinky. Additionally, Fenugreek looks to be a better sex enhancer than it is a T-booster. In case that isn’t enough, Tribulus is here to get you even more horned up.
Arginine’s NO boosts lead to better circulation to the part that matters most. With this, your erections will be stiffer than steel. Lastly, Astragalus improves the quality of your microscopic swimmers so if you don’t want to get your girl pregnant, better get yourself a condom because your sperm is going to be gliding through her private parts like Michael Phelps and his Butterfly.
Does it Work?
For testosterone? Yeah. A little bit. Fenugreek looks decently dosed and the quality is top-notch too.
But for sex, though? Oh man, this sh*t works! Like I said, all the ingredients here point to sex. Although there might be a little of boost in athletic performance, too.
With that said, I think the people who suit this kind of formula more are the the grandpa’s looking to get back in the chick-hunting game. They’re already low in testosterone which works well with Tribulus, Fenugreek, and Ginseng. They’re also low on libido because, well, that’s what getting old gets you and the ingredients here can help fix that. Additionally, with NO boosts, these guys’ penises will transform from prunes to stallions.
Maybe more importantly though, older guys are typically the same people who have higher levels of DHT which places them at risk of BPH. Such is the nature of aging. The potential decline in DHT that this supplement provides looks promising to this particular demographic.
- Sex – How can this be a bad thing?
- Testofen – Branded and high quality form of Fenugreek.
- Packaging? – Because it’s gold? I don’t know, man. I cant seem to find anything else good about this formula aside from those two above.
- Prop Blend – I get why they’re trying to hide the dosages though. Which brings me to…
- Low dosage – Their prop blend only has a total of 100 mg. Split that between 6 ingredients and what you get are ineffective herbs that’re basically just there for marketing purposes.
- Not a lot of testosterone boosts – Earlier, I said that Testofen and Ginseng are the only ingredients here that sort of guarantee a boost in testosterone. However, with Ginseng being part of the low dosed prop blend, It probably won’t work, too.
- DHT killer – If it does work to some degree even with this disappointing dose, it could diminish a manly hormone in DHT. So, maybe it’s better if it doesn’t work? You decide.
The Bottom Line
So, how does Ultra T Gold stack up against other testosterone boosters? Personally, I think it’s way down the list. If the point was to provide a testosterone booster that works for older men, then surely there are waaaay better products in the market than this.
The formula overall looks to have ingredients that target sex more than anything but with the dosage of the prop blend, I doubt it’ll work. For testosterone, you might get a little bit out of Fenugreek but don’t expect some sort of ageless transformation.
