Quick Take: Damn it. Why does this formula look so familiar? I feel like I’ve written a review for something similar and I just can’t shake that off my head (*sigh). Anyway, Weider Prime Testosterone Support is a 10-ingredient formula that honestly doesn’t have much punch when it comes to boosting test. It does seem decent for building a better though. Let’s get to reading.
- Weider Prime Testosterone Support is a product of the union of two companies: MDrive (DreamBrands) and Weider.
- It says “gluten free” right there on the label so all you dudes afraid or allergic or whatever to gluten better pay attention.
- Primarily powered by branded Ashwagandha, Chromium, and Black Pepper.
- Also has other great testosterone boosters in Vitamin D and Zinc
- This supplement could’ve been a lot better with better forms and dosages.
- Available to buy online and in retail stores including Amazon and Costco. It doesn’t look like its on GNC.

Weider Prime Testosterone Support’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Vitamin D3 – A gift from the sun that research has shown to be essential to healthy levels of testosterone. This D3 form is legit good but the meager 400 IU dosage tells a different story.
Vitamin B6 – Although the research surrounding Vitamin B6 isn’t as solid as the science behind Vitamin D3, it still looks pretty good for testosterone. As seen in this animal study, Vitamin B6 depletion correlates to lower levels of testosterone. 10 mg is an okay dose but the form Weider Prime Testosterone Support used could be better (like P-5-P better).
Vitamin B12 – This one doesn’t seem to have any benefits to testosterone. However, Vitamin B12 is still a manly vitamin with its positive impact on sperm, prostate, and metabolism.
Calcium – It’s somewhat common knowledge to active men that exercise itself boosts testosterone. As it turns out though, taking Calcium supplements with your daily exercise routine boosts testosterone even more. This 35 mg dose is low though.
Zinc – Simply said, your body can’t make testosterone without Zinc because of its direct involvement not only in test production, but also in its release. Additionally, an intense day at the gym increases your stress levels and this in turn, lowers levels of testosterone. Zinc helps prevent that from happening. L-OptiZinc® is a superiorly absorbed brand of Zinc so this somewhat average dose of 15 mg should still do the trick.
Chromium – This one doesn’t have any testosterone boosting properties but in terms of bodybuilding, Chromium could be considered gold for its ability to incinerate fat and bulk up muscle. Chromax® is a pretty good brand, too.
Diindolylmethane – A compound found in cruciferous vegetables that’s used in testosterone boosting products to inhibit aromatase – an enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. By inhibiting this enzyme, DIM theoretically lowers levels of estrogen as well as increase levels of bioavailable or “free” testosterone.
Ashwagandha – I call this the all-in-one natural man enhancer. Not only does this herb boost testosterone, it also helps the body adapt to stress and fatigue, elevate libido, improve fertility, and enhance physical performance. Trust me on this: KSM-66® dosed at a heavy 675 mg is real good news.
Cordyceps – This fungus grows at the back of insects like caterpillars. Sounds gross, I know, but it does have testosterone boosting and adaptogenic potential.
Bioperine – No manly benefits whatsoever. Nope, not even for testosterone. What it does though, is enhance the absorption of every single ingredient in the Weider Prime Testosterone Support stack.
Weider Prime Testosterone Support Directions
Take 2 capsules (1 serving) daily with food.
On the Weider Prime Testosterone Support website, they featured the ingredients KSM-66, Chromax, and Bioperine so I’m assuming these 3 are the main ingredients in the formula. Knowing that Bioperine’s purpose is here is to enhance nutrient absorption, let’s move on to the other two.
Both Ashwagandha and Chromium do the body good when it comes to building a better physique. Combined, these two look to intensify your lifts at the gym while also helping you adapt to this heightened physical stress so you can grow bigger muscles, burn more fat, and maintain healthy levels of testosterone.
Speaking of testosterone, there are other test boosters in the Weider Prime Testosterone Support formula although they’re not as well prioritized as Ashwagandha. Case in point, Vitamin D3 and Zinc are two of the best natural T boosters in the planet and although their forms are potent, their puny dosages are holding them back (especially Vitamin D3).
Vitamin B6’s case is the opposite of those two. Dosage is decent but pyridoxine hydrochloride isn’t the best. With boosted testosterone, you’ll need an ingredient to regulate estrogen and that’s where DIM comes in. However, DIM doesn’t have much research to it when it comes to male health. Cordyceps needs more scientific exploration as well.
That basically covers up the entire Weider Prime Testosterone Support formula but I still can’t help but wonder why the stack seemed so familiar. I scanned through the other reviews I’ve written, and there I found MDrive Prime.
As it turns out, both supplements are so similarly designed because Weider Prime Testosterone Support is the end product of two companies, MDrive (DreamsBrands) and Weider, joining their heads.
Does it Work?
I’d like to think so. This heavy dose of KSM-66® alone can almost guarantee at least a bit of boost in testosterone. The rest of the ingredients in the Weider Prime Testosterone Support stack need a little work in terms of dosage, forms, and research but I believe they can contribute as well.
As a whole, I feel like Weider Prime Testosterone Support does its best work in the bodybuilding department. There’s a bit of testosterone boost, sure, but given that Ashwagandha and Chromium are its top ingredients, active males are the ones who seem to benefit from this formula the most.
- KSM-66 – Potent Ashwagandha that’s backed by solid research.
- Chromax – No testosterone boosts but goes well with Ashwagandha in terms of exercise.
- BioPerine – Well, this completes the featured ingredients of Weider Prime Testosterone Support
- L-OptiZinc – It may not be featured in the Weider Prime Testosterone Support website but I still think it’s worth mentioning.
- No prop blends – Full dosage disclosure? Thank you!
- All Natural – Which means its free of major side effects.
- Zinc and Vitamin D3 – Given a bit more dosage, these could’ve taken the test boosting prowess of the entire formula a step higher.
- DIM and Cordyceps – Under researched ingredients. They do have potential though.
- Calcium – One thing I haven’t talked about yet is that Calcium interferes with Zinc absorption and Weider Prime Testosterone Support doesn’t have much Zinc to start with. Hopefully, BioPerine and Calcium’s low dosage makes this a non-issue.
The Bottom Line
With a little more work, Weider Prime Testosterone Support could become a great test booster. Don’t get me wrong though. It’s still a pretty decent formula. It does have a few premium and branded ingredients in its belt, after all. However, what’s keeping me from listing it alongside the best testosterone boosters is that it has a few dosage derps and a couple more under-researched ingredients.
