Quick Take: What I like about Alpha King Fury is that it’s both a pre workout supplement and a testosterone booster. Although, to be honest, it’s really more PWO than anything else. Nonetheless, it does manage to promote a more anabolic hormonal environment while also amplifying strength, energy, and blood flow to help us all get our dream physiques. However, it might also have a few risky side effects. Learn more about this product in the review below.
- A product of Force Factor®, Alpha King Fury™ is advertised to be “the ultimate testosterone booster for guys craving an edge in the gym and in life”
- Despite being advertised as the supreme test booster, I think its really more of a PWO supplement
- Comes with a bunch of B vitamins and 3 non-proprietary blends that each serve a specific purpose
- Most notable testosterone booster/estrogen regulator is AlphaFen® at 500 mg. The other ingredients are generally well dosed with great qualities, too.
- Impressive PWO benefits but might trigger some risky cardiac side effects
- Available to buy online including Amazon, GNC, eBay, and the Force Factor website

Alpha King Fury – Ingredients Review
Niacin – Also known as Vitamin B3, this vitamin helps increase levels of “good” (HDL) cholesterol which, in turn, helps remove the “bad” (LDL) cholesterol. Since steroid hormones such as testosterone are derived from cholesterol, this might also support healthier levels of T. Moreover, research suggests that niacin may also boost growth hormone.
Vitamin B6 – Studies suggest that lower levels of vitamin B6 might be correlated to lower levels of testosterone. At 8 mg, Alpha King Fury does supply a solid dose. However, I would’ve preferred the P-5-P form over the Pyridoxine HCl given here.
Vitamin B12 – B12 deficiency has several side effects including irritability, anxiety, and even erectile dysfunction. Clearly, you’re going to want to maintain healthy levels of this vitamin as well. Specifically for male health, vitamin B12 seems to promote better sperm without necessarily boosting testosterone.
Sodium – Although a lot of “trainers” tell you to avoid sodium so you can get a leaner and drier physique, I think this mineral is actually an important part of pre workout nutrition. It helps you maintain a healthy balance of electrolytes and a good volume of blood so your working muscle gets the right nutrients and functions optimally throughout your workouts.
Hormone Modulating Nutrient Uptake Matrix
- Fenugreek (AlphaFen®) – This herb is a natural performance enhancer at the gym and a booster of sexual drive in bed. Moreover, it also boosts testosterone while regulating estrogen and DHT. Also, since AlphaFen is standardized to sapogenins, a natural anabolic compound, this particular brand might be better for bodybuilding.
- AstraGin® – A combination of Panax notoginseng and Astralagus membranaceus, this ingredient is here to bolster nutrient absorption which, essentially, also improves the bioavailability of the entire Alpha King Fury formula.
Endurance and Blood Flow Optimization Blend
- Beta-Alanine (CarnoSyn®) – Perhaps one of the most popular ingredients used in today’s pre-workout supplements, beta-alanine turns into carnosine once ingested. This, then, helps delay the onset of fatigue and consequently results in an increased workout capacity. However, do beware of the tingling (pins and needles) that may come with BA supplementation. This side effect is temporary though.
- L-Citrulline – Research suggests that L-Citrulline is better at increasing arginine than arginine itself which, essentially, makes it the more efficient option for increasing nitric oxide. As a result, it’s also probably the better option for improving blood circulation.
- Taurine – Per research, it helps reduce the oxidative damage caused by exercise. Because of this same effect, the same research suggests that it can also increase exercise capacity.
Masculine Fury Energy Complex
- Caffeine Anhydrous – We all know what caffeine is, right? It’s a stimulant that makes you feel alert and energized. Plus, it also works pretty fast and is a pretty solid fat burner. As quick and effective as its effects can be, however, it typically also comes with a crash.
- Thinkamine™ Vincamine – A trademarked brand of the compound vincamine from the vinca minor plant, I’ve only ever seen this specific ingredient in another Force Factor product, Forebrain, so I’m guessing it helps with focus. Moreover, it also seems to be an effective vasodilator which then helps with blood flow.
- Yohimbine HCl – Like caffeine, yohimbine is also a stimulant that grants a quick jolt of energy. Likewise, it’s also a capable fat burner. The bad news, however, is that when both these stimulants are taken together, they increase your cardiac load. This explains the numerous reports of yohimbine+caffeine resulting in cardiac side effects.
Alpha King Fury Directions
Each serving of Alpha King Fury consists of 1 scoop (9 g). According to the instructions on the Force Factor website, simply mix 1 heaping scoop with 8-10 oz of cold water and drink 20-30 minutes prior to exercise. DO NOT EXCEED 1 SCOOP PER DAY.
Let me get straight to the point here.
As a testosterone booster, Alpha King Fury looks weak. It pretty much has vitamin B6, Fenugreek, maybe Niacin, and that’s it. Compared to the best testosterone booster supplements this 2018, this is honestly nothing to get excited about. To be fair, it can still support healthier levels of T while also regulating estrogen albeit to very limited degrees. After all, these ingredients have moderate to heavy dosages and pretty good forms.
Having said that, I see Alpha King Fury as more of a pre workout supplement rather than a testosterone booster.
I say that because literally everything here boosts workout performance.
To start with, the B vitamins and sodium work in tandem to help provide your muscles the right energy and nutrition for them to work optimally. The effects of these nutrients are then amplified and complemented by the rest of the formula.
In particular, Fenugreek, beta-alanine, caffeine, yohimbine, taurine, and vincamine’s benefits on strength, stamina, and focus can all help you maximize each set of your workout. Furthermore, L-citrulline and vincamine both have a positive effect on blood flow which not only helps you get those massive pumps at the gym, but also deliver much needed nutrients to your muscles more efficiently.
The problem with Alpha King Fury’s PWO design, however, is that it might come with some pretty risky side effects.
Like I said, caffeine and yohimbine don’t go well together from a safety standpoint because these stimulants can cause abnormalities in blood pressure and heart rate. Vincamine doesn’t look too safe either. As evidenced by a U.S. National Library of Medicine article, 6 patients who took vincamine developed abnormal heart rhythms.
Alpha King Fury Benefits: Does it Work?
Here’s a short answer for those of you who got tired of reading:
- As a testosterone booster – barely
- As a pre workout – yes but it also comes with side effects
The fact of the matter is that the ingredients used in this stack’s Masculine Fury Energy Complex – namely: caffeine, yohimbine, and vincamine – don’t go well together as all of them might trigger some cardiac side effects.
If you’re good with stimulants and are one of the lucky ones to not experience significant side effects, however, then Alpha King Fury does look significantly capable of boosting athletic performance, focus, and blood flow.
Alpha King Fury Review Summary
- Non-proprietary – A lot of Force Factor products have prop blends that hide the dosages of their ingredients. I’m glad Alpha King Fury isn’t one of them.
- PWO + T boosts – Having higher testosterone and lower estrogen sets your body up for greater anabolic activity. Paired with this supplement’s pre workout benefits, I think this looks solid.
- Flavor options – You get to choose between iced tea lemonade or blue raspberry
- Cheap – Specifically if you buy this on GNC, it’s currently worth $27.99. Amazon and Force Factor sell this at a higher price (i.e. $38 and $39.99 respectively)
- Risky – I don’t know about you but I’m not risking the health of my heart
- Weak T boosts – For a pre workout, I guess it’s alright but it’s honestly weak compared to a lot of testosterone boosters
- 20 servings – I mean, can’t Force Factor just give us 30 servings like almost everyone else does?
- Limited reviews – As of today, I’ve only seen 2 customer reviews on Alpha King Fury. To be fair though, both customers seem satisfied as they both gave 5/5 stars ratings.
The Bottom Line
Alpha King Fury is PWO/T booster hybrid but really, it’s more of the latter. As a whole though, this supplement can provide sport performance enhancements in the form of more energy, delayed fatigue, stronger muscles, laser focus, and better blood flow. Along with its effective yet limited T boosts, these benefits also help men build bigger and/or leaner physiques. That being said, do be careful of the potential side effects. If you’re sensitive to caffeine or are experiencing any sort of cardiac related discomfort, I strongly suggest you look for another product.
