Quick Take: One Boost is a cheap, 2-part male enhancement formula. One part is a non-proprietary stack of promising ingredients while the other is a proprietary blend of a few questionable ingredients. Obviously, this is both good and bad. Now, the question is, are its pros enough to outweigh its cons? Let’s get to the review and find out.
- One Boost is a product advertised on its label as the “#1 Max Potency Formula”
- Tongkat Ali seems to be this product’s primary testosterone booster but it also has a heavy dose of Zinc to help support testosterone
- The non-proprietary part of One Boost Male Enhancement generally has adequate dosages for its 6 ingredients. Ingredient quality could be better though.
- On the other hand, the proprietary blend has 13 ingredients sharing a low total dosage of just 838 mg. The ingredients aren’t as solid either.
- Uses licorice which may be counterproductive to a couple of One Boost’s supposed benefits.
- Available to buy online and in retail stores including Amazon and Walmart. It’s not on GNC.

One Boost Male Enhancement – Ingredients Review
Zinc – This mineral is essential for testosterone synthesis and it even helps maintain high levels of testosterone after a workout. However, oxide is a very poorly absorbed form of Zinc. Thankfully though, this hefty 50 mg dose makes up for it.
Tongkat Ali – To my understanding, this herb is THE prime testosterone booster in the entire One Boost formula. According to research, moderately stressed individuals (both male & female) experienced a 37% increase in testosterone along with a 16% decrease in cortisol.
Maca – As shown in a research, Maca was able to improve both semen volume and sperm motility. However, these effects were not accompanied by any boost in testosterone.
L-Arginine – This supplement is a popular bodybuilding amino acid that helps improve muscle pump via increased circulation. It might help with testosterone through this same mechanism but this largely remains theoretical.
Panax ginseng – Research suggests that Panax ginseng can help fight fatigue. This did not translate to enhanced physical performance, however.
Panax Ginseng can’t help with athletic activity but, will it boost testosterone?
With regards to Panax Ginseng, its ability to boost testosterone remains largely unexplored. I did find one research that shows an increase in total and “free” T as well as other androgens (i.e.,DHT, FSH and LH) but this was published way back in 1996. Needless to say, Panax Ginseng is an unreliable source for natural testosterone boosts.
Eleutherococcus senticosus – Otherwise known as Siberian Ginseng despite not being a “true” ginseng. Regardless, it can be an effective anti-stress supplement.
Sarsaparilla – This doesn’t look like it can boost testosterone but the Chinese seem to believe strongly in its ability to improve libido.
- Pumpkin Seed – Because of its ability to block 5-alpha-reductase, one study says that Pumpkin Seed is a safe and effective supplement for treating BPH (benign prostatatic hyperplasia). However, the same research also observed no changes to “free” testosterone.
- Muira Puama – Weak evidence as a testosterone booster but can be good for libido
- Oat Straw – Otherwise known as Avena Sativa, this seems to hold more potential in nootropic products but because it’s a rich source of nitric oxide, it might also help boost circulation.
- Stinging Nettle – A spikey plant that boosts “free” testosterone by reducing estrogen, DHT, and blocking SHBG.
- Cayenne Pepper – Helps boost nutrient absorption while also contributing to fat reduction.
- Astragalus – Research shows that it can boost sperm motility but there’s limited evidence on its ability to influence testosterone.
- Licorice – Personally, I find licorice candy too sweet. Regardless of my personal preference though, there’s evidence pointing towards licorice being bad for testosterone. Plus, it even increases cortisol.
- Catuaba Bark – An Amazonian herb with nootropic promise. What’s more interesting to me though, is that it seems to have the ability to induce erotic dreams.
Tribulus Terrestris – For men with low existing levels of testosterone, this herb could work. For the young and healthy though, research confirms that it’s useless. Regardless of age though, it’s great for libido.
- Orchic Powder – Bull testicles is basically what this is. It’s believed to increase masculine vigor and testosterone but evidence is more superstition than actual science.
- Boron – Right up there with Zinc as one of the best minerals for male health, Boron does plenty for testosterone. Not only does it boost T (and DHT), it also lowers estriadol and SHBG.
- Oyster – FACT: Oyster contains more Zinc than any other food on planet Earth. Moreover, it has other other manly nutrients such as Magnesium, Vitamin B6, and B12.
One Boost Male Enhancement Directions
Each of serving of One Boost Male Enhancement consists of 2 tablets. As instructed on their label, simply take 1 serving (2 pills) daily with a meal or as directed by your doctor.
One Boost Male enhancement is both non-proprietary and proprietary. This is good because some of its ingredients have their dosages disclosed and bad, because… well, most individual dosages aren’t disclosed. Let’s start the analysis with the non-proprietary ingredients.
Outside of its prop blend, One Boost has 6 male enhancement ingredients. Two of which – Zinc and Tongkat Ali – are great for testosterone and bodybuilding. The rest of the non-proprietary ingredients aren’t necessarily testosterone boosters though but they can help fight fatigue and stress while also improving sperm and circulation.
Moving on to the One Boost prop blend, this is where the chain of bad news starts
Prop blends hide the individual dosages of its ingredients. Furthermore, the total dosage is bad, too. With 13 ingredients sharing a measly total of 838 mg, each ingredient averages just 64.5 mg. Even with a bunch of potent herbal extracts, that’s still really low.
The bad news isn’t over though. While the non-proprietary part of the One Boost formula and a few ingredients from the prop blend help balance testosterone and cortisol, Licorice disturbs this equilibrium by doing the opposite. On the other hand, I do see a bunch of natural libido boosters and obviously, sexual health is a big part of being an active man.
One Boost Male Enhancement Benefits: Does it Work?
As far as the non-proprietary part of this formula goes, yes, One Boost Male Enhancement works. I’m confident in this simply because there’s a heavy load of Zinc and Tongkat Ali. Their forms could be better but, hey, it’s better than nothing.
Now, with the proprietary part of One Boost Male Enhancement, I think I’ll give this a NO. I mean, there’s just too many drawbacks to say it does. The ingredients are under researched, Licorice is hormonally counterproductive, and the entire blend is largely under dosed. If anything, it naturally boosts libido and that’s pretty much it.
One Boost Male Enhancement Review Summary
- Non-proprietary – 6 of its ingredients have their dosages disclosed and thankfully, these ingredients have enough milligrams to work.
- Zinc and Tongkat Ali – Pretty much the only ingredients in One Boost that can effectively give you test boosts.
- Libido boosts – With a good amount of libido boosters, I feel like an improved sex drive is the best benefit of One Boost Male Enhancement
- Cheap – Prices vary depending on where you buy it but it’s always sold cheap.
- Safe – There were no reports of nasty side effects based on the customer reviews I’ve read. With these natural ingredients, I wouldn’t expect there to be any, either.
- Proprietary – 13 of its ingredients have their dosages hidden in a low dosed prop blend
- Licorice – While Zinc and Tongkat Ali boost testosterone and lowers cortisol, this candy does the opposite.
- Unoriginal? – Another con that I found about One Boost is that it’s not the only supplement that uses the same exact male enhancement formula. From Zinc down to Oyster, Peak Test by Alpha Tech Labs uses it, too. I don’t know which supplement came first though and honestly, it doesn’t matter.
The Bottom Line
For its price, One Boost Male Enhancement is actually a decent formula. It’s not the ultimate solution to low T but at just $19.99 on Amazon, you get safe and natural boosts in testosterone, fertility, energy, circulation, and libido. However, with a low dosed prop blend that might do more harm than good, it’s also nowhere near as powerful as the best testosterone supplements in the market.
