Quick Take: Invictus Labs Alpha Boost can be a good choice if you’re looking for an affordable supplement to help boost your libido. However, almost all of its ingredients are part of a prop blend. Speaking of prop blend, it’s not unique to Alpha Boost either. In today’s review, we’ll be discussing these and more. Let’s get started.
- A product of Invictus Labs, Alpha Boost is advertised to be a “vitality booster” that helps with stamina, energy, and strength
- It’s not the only supplement that uses this same exact formula. More on this later.
- Calcium is the only ingredient outside its prop blend and it’s not even adequately dosed.
- The Alpha Boost Blend (prop blend) consists of 8 ingredients sharing a total dosage of 1484 mg per serving.
- Double-dosing greatly improves its chances of being effective but it also leaves you with just 15 days worth of caplets.
- Alpha Boost isn’t available to buy on GNC but it’s Amazon. In fact, the Invictus Labs website reroutes to Amazon if you decide to buy a bottle of any of their supplements.

Invictus Labs Alpha Boost – Ingredients Review
Calcium – Results of a research shows that training while supplementing with calcium further augments the testosterone boosts of exercise. With dosage as low as this though, you’re better off drinking a cup of milk.
Alpha Boost Blend
- Horny Goat Weed – As concluded by a research, Icariin – the active compound found in Horny Goat Weed – has testosterone mimetic properties. It might not be that reliable for actual testosterone boosts though but it’s great for libido.
- Tongkat Ali – Especially at this potent quality 100:1 extract, TA is an effective herb when it comes to naturally boosting libido. Furthermore, research suggests that it may also help balance the testosterone:cortisol ratio.
- Saw Palmetto – The active compounds of this fruit have been used to treat benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) by lowering excess DHT. Through the same mechanisms, it might also help increase testosterone.
- Orchic Substance – Cattle or bull testicles is what this is. Gross, I know, but it’s believed to increase masculine vigor despite the lack of scientific proof. Personally, I call bullsh*t. Pun intended.
Wild Yam – This herb contains a WADA prohibited compound known as DHEA which is a precursor to testosterone. However, taking Wild Yam and DHEA aren’t the same thing because it seems like only DHEA (NOT wild yam) is capable of boosting test.
- Sarsaparilla – Holds promise for boosting sexual desire but it doesn’t look like it has any benefit for testosterone.
- Nettle – This herb boosts “free” testosterone in 3 ways. It either lowers estrogen, DHT, or block the T-binding activities of SHBG.
- Boron – Personally, I think Boron is one of the elite minerals for male health. It’s a highly bioavailable supplement that not only boosts testosterone but also neutralizes T-killers such as estrogen and SHBG.
Invictus Labs Alpha Boost Directions
Each serving of Invictus Labs Alpha Boosts consists of 2 caplets. As instructed, men should take these servings 1-2 times daily.
Let’s start this review analysis with the only ingredient that’s not part of the prop blend: Calcium. For bodybuilding or any kind of athletic training, Calcium looks like a solid supplement. By boosting the testosterone spike that comes from exercise, it could also help with muscle function and recovery.
However, the problem with Calcium here on Invictus Labs Alpha Boost is its dosage. I’m not saying it won’t have any kind of effect though but with just a meager 44.28 mg, you’re better off with other calcium-rich dairy products.
Moving on to the rest of the Invictus Labs Alpha Boost formula, all of its other ingredients are trapped inside its Alpha Boost Blend. This is a proprietary blend of 8 ingredients sharing a total dosage of 1484 mg per serving. That’s actually quite decent if you take 2 servings per day. With just 1, it looks okay but a bunch of these ingredients are likely going to be under dosed.
Regardless of serving size though, my review on Invictus Labs Alpha Boost tells me that it’s more of a sex supplement rather than an actual testosterone booster. To be fair, there might be a bit of an increase in testosterone coming from Tongkat Ali, Saw Palmetto, Nettle and Boron but without knowledge of their individual dosages, I can’t accurately gauge how effective they actually can be.
Invictus Labs Alpha Boost Benefits: Does it Work?
Hypothetically, yes, Invictus Labs Alpha Boost can work but again, I feel like boosting libido is its best asset but it also has the ingredients to boost testosterone, muscle growth, and prostate health. However, with the proprietary nature of the Invictus Labs Alpha Boost formula and the fact that it doesn’t have the best dosage, it’s nowhere near the most effective testosterone supplements in the market.
Invictus Labs Alpha Boost Review Summary
- Feels good – Because libido is looking like its greatest benefit. An iron dick doesn’t necessarily mean boosted T though.
- Safe and natural – None of the ingredients are going to get you any risky side effects. The customer reviews I’ve read aren’t reporting anything nasty, too.
- Cheap – Amazon sells this at $19.99 with free shipping.
- Proprietary – Aside from calcium, the rest of the ingredients have their dosages hidden.
- Low dose – Speaking of dosage, 1 serving per day doesn’t look like it will to much. On the other hand, 2 servings per day greatly improves the dosage but it also cuts down your supply in half. This, then, nullifies its advantage of being cheap since you’ll be buying two bottles for a month’s supply.
- Illegal? – Since Wild Yam contains the prohibited substance DHEA, this could get you in trouble if you’re a competing athlete. Check with your sports league to make sure.
Another disadvantage of Invictus Labs Alpha Boost is that it’s NOT unique. I’ve literally written reviews for a legion of other products with the exact same prop blend. Check them out:
- Prime Test by Prime Labs
- TestoRex by NutraTech
- Xtreme Test by Fundamental Sound Science
- Test Booster by MaximFit
- Testo Max by PrimeX
All these products can also be found on Amazon. If you do decide to buy Invictus Labs Alpha Test, you might want to check on the prices of these products first before placing your order. They are literally going to get you the same exact benefits but one might be cheaper.
The Bottom Line
Men take testosterone boosters for various reasons. That said, if you’re looking for a cheap natural T supplement to help boost your libido, Invictus Labs Alpha Boost and all the other supplements that share its formula might do you good. Just don’t expect anything massive because, to me, it’s just about average.
