Quick Take: If you’ve got a supplement company and you have an actual doctor on your team, that automatically adds to your company’s credibility, right? Right. However, it doesn’t always ensure that your products are competitive. Such is the case for Monster T. Designed, promoted, and prescribed by Dr. David J Blyweiss, M.D, Monster T is a short 4-ingredient stack that has some of the best natural testosterone supplements but its simplicity has eventually become its greatest flaw. Check out the review.
- Monster T is an herbal supplement under the brand UniScience Group
- Its 126 tablets (6 tablets per serving) is good for a month’s worth of supplementation
- Supposedly designed and prescribed by a physician by the name of Dr. David J Blyweiss, M.D
- Only has 4 ingredients but are all pretty good at what they do
- This short list of ingredients make it inevitably incomplete. Detailed explanation further down the review.
- Available to buy on the UniScience Group official website and on Amazon. It doesn’t seem to be on GNC though.
Monster T Ingredients
|Zinc (as Zinc Oxide)||30 mg|
|D Aspartic Acid||3,000 mg|
|Stinging Nettle (leaf)||140 mg|
Monster T’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Zinc – It’s a raw material required for the synthesis of testosterone which, to me, makes it one of the most important minerals for male health. 30 mg is a hefty dose but this oxide form is this mineral’s cheapest and hardest to absorb version.
D Aspartic Acid (DAA) – With research showing a 42% boost in testosterone in just 12 days, DAA is one of the more popular and powerful natural testosterone boosters. 3,000 mg is damn good dose, too!
L-Citrulline – This amino acid converts to arginine which then makes it capable of improving blood flow through nitric oxide. Moreover, it’s also been found to increase muscle strength and stamina. These effects are what make it such a popular choice in PWO supplements.
Stinging Nettle – A prized herb for its prostate support, stinging nettle also makes a pretty good “free” testosterone booster for its potential inhibition on SHBG, aromatase, and 5-alpha-reductase.
Monster T Directions
Each serving of Monster T consists of 6 tablets and as instructed by UniScience Group, you have the choice of either taking all these at once or dividing your intake throughout the day.
The UniScience Group also recommends taking this for 5 straight days followed by 2 off days. This may be a bit confusing long-term so I personally suggest taking it on weekdays and just take the weekends off.
Monster T is a simple stack of 4 ingredients. Given the average number of ingredients in most testosterone supplements, 4 is definitely a low number. However, what Monster T has is 4 ingredients that’re some of the best at what they do.
For instance, DAA and Zinc are two of the most balls-out natural testosterone boosters. With Zinc providing the raw materials and DAA taking charge of turning those into T boosts, both of them act directly on testosterone synthesis.
Sadly, a majority of your testosterone supply won’t be readily available because it’ll be bound to SHBG or converted to either estrogen or DHT. Thankfully, Monster T has a solution in Stinging Nettle. By blocking the activities of SHBG and the enzymes that convert testosterone into other hormones, it helps promote “free” testosterone. Furthermore, the DHT reduction also adds a layer or prostate support as excess DHT has been linked with prostate issues especially in older men.
Obviously, this burst of testosterone can also lead to improvements in sex, lean muscle, and energy but to further enhance these effects, Monster T utilized the help of L-Citrulline. Mainly by improving blood flow, this amino acid can help with erections and body composition given that you pair it with a healthy diet and your choice of exercise, whether it be sport, bodybuilding, or even just regularly jogging around the neighborhood.
Does it Work?
The way I see it, this 4-ingredient stack works best for older males who’re already experiencing signs of low T such as a decline in energy, sex drive, and a change in their body composition. Monster T is also said to be formulated and prescribed by a doctor named David J Blyweiss, M.D. so there’s that. Younger men who’re taking T boosters to enhance growing muscles, you might want to try another stack that’s geared towards athletics.
However, this simple yet effective list of ingredients is also this product’s shortcoming. To better explain this, I prepared a short comparison of Monster T to another supplement that ranks highly among my list of the best T boosters of 2017 in the colored box below.
Prime Male vs. Monster T
Monster T’s main testosterone boosters come in the form of Zinc, DAA, and Stinging Nettle. Prime Male also has these same ingredients but even if we were to compare both products based on these 3 ingredients, Prime Male still comes out on top for the following reasons:
- Both supplements have the same dosage of Zinc but Citrate (Prime Male) is better absorbed compared to Oxide (Monster T)
- Monster T may have more DAA on paper compared to Prime Male (3,000 mg vs. 1600 mg) but Prime Male’s D-AA-CC is more potent than just regular DAA
- Prime Male’s Stinging Nettle (10:1 extract at 160 mg) ups Monster T’s (powder at 140 mg) in both quality and quantity
Furthermore, Prime Male has 9 other ingredients compared to Monster T’s remaining L-Citrulline, ultimately resulting in Prime Male being a more well-rounded formula overall.
- Zinc and DAA – Two of the best natural testosterone supplements today
- Dosage – 6 tablets for just 4 ingredients? That’s a lot of room right there.
- Dr. David J Blyweiss, M.D. – Seeing a doctor promote a company adds credibility. It does not, however, guarantee effectiveness.
- Reputation – Granted, there are only 5 customer reviews on Amazon but there’s one particular customer that’s very critical about Monster T. Basically, he said Monster T didn’t do anything for his testosterone and even went as far as saying saltines are better than this formula.
- Incomplete – You can blame the lack of ingredients in Monster T for this flaw.
- Tablets – First of all, I prefer capsules. Second of all, the “other ingredients” in these tablets outnumber this stack’s actual ingredients. Dirty. What’s up with that?
The Bottom Line
Despite its lack of ingredients, Monster T makes do with what it has and what it has, is a stable stack of 4 ingredients that’re here to boost testosterone and its effects. Moreover, while I think that it’s not the best supplement for T, there are tons more who do so much worse. That said, I say Monster T is a stack that could’ve made much better use of its massive 6 tablet servings if it added more ingredients that complement its already solid set of 4.
