To me, Performance Lab SPORT T-booster is the pinnacle of minimalism when it comes to testosterone boosting
In the world of testosterone booster supplements where filling up capsules with a multitude of ingredients and proprietary blends – regardless of whether they work or not – is the norm, Performance Lab SPORT T-booster comes to me as an oddity.
Not everything that’s different is bad though and, well… I think Performance Labs Sport T-booster is the good kind of odd.
With only 4 ingredients, it manages to do what many supplements twice its size can’t: synergistically and effectively boost testosterone. Now that we’re on the topic of test boosting ingredients, let’s talk about what’s inside this stack.
Performance Lab SPORT T-Booster – Ingredients Review
D-Aspartic Acid Calcium Chelate (D-AA-CC) – D-Aspartic Acid or DAA, the base component of this amino acid, enhances the entire hypothalamus–pituitary–gonadal (HPG) axis. Basically, this means that it optimizes the entire process of testosterone synthesis which, according to one research, results in a 42% boost in testosterone within 12 short days. Furthermore, it can also increase human growth hormone. Here on Performance Lab Sport T-Booster, DAA is attached to a calcium molecule making it easier to absorb and, therefore, more powerful, too.
Ashwagandha (KSM-66®) – This herb seemingly does it all for male health – boost sex drive, fertility, athletic performance, and even testosterone. As KSM-66®, Ashwagandha becomes even better. As a testosterone booster, this particular brand is legit with research showing how the herb can improve testosterone production by optimizing the release of LH. This, then, results in a 17% boost in testosterone. Furthermore, Ashwagandha is also an adaptogenic herb that helps lower cortisol and that’s great for T as well.
Mucuna Pruriens – Standardized for 15% L-Dopa, Performance Lab Sport T-booster’s version Mucuna Pruriens is potently enhanced to contain more of the active compound that’s largely responsible for its manly benefits. Once L-Dopa breaches our brain, it is converted into a neurotransmitter known as dopamine. From there, dopamine starts a chain of events in our HPG axis which ultimately ends with boosted testosterone. More than just boosting T though, Mucuna Pruriens also decreases a feminine and anti-T hormone called prolactin.
If dopamine is the catalyst for increased T production, why not use it instead of L-Dopa or Mucuna Pruriens?
Our brains have a filtering system called the blood-brain barrier which regulates what goes inside or brains. Unfortunately, because of dopamine’s structure, it is unable to cross this barrier. Levodopa (or L-Dopa) on the other hand, is an amino acid that carries a transporter protein which allows it to enter the BBB. Think of this protein as an entrance ticket to an exclusive night club. Because of this, people who need dopamine are usually prescribed L-Dopa.So, why Mucuna Pruriens?Like I said, L-Dopa is largely responsible for Mucuna Pruriens’ male enhancement but it’s not the only active compound found inside the herb. These other compounds contribute to the strength of Mucuna Pruriens although to a lesser degree. For this reason, Mucuna Pruriens appears to be more effective than just levodopa alone.
Luteolin – This compound blocks aromatase – the enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to estrogen (yes, this happens). According to research, “luteolin potently inhibited estrogen biosynthesis” and “promoted aromatase protein degradation”. In essence, it prevents the formation of estrogen while also attacking the aromatase enzyme. Furthermore, another study compared the ability of Luteolin to block aromatase with a pharmaceutical aromatase-inhibitor and described it as being competitive.
Performance Lab SPORT T-Booster Directions
Each serving of Performance Lab SPORT T-booster consists of 2 Plantcaps®. Moreover, Performance Lab also suggests a cycle of 4 weeks on, 2 weeks off.
Normally, a supplement with an ingredient list as short as this doesn’t really have much to analyze. However, Performance Lab Sport T-Booster is different from any regular testosterone stack. It may have less weapons in its holster but, man, how it uses them is a masterpiece.
It all starts with D-AA-CC. As an enhanced version of the already powerful DAA, this should be much easier to absorb. Thus, the 1000 mg dosage here on Performance Lab Sport T-booster should be more than enough to suffice.
Along with this stack’s potent dose of levodopa, Mucuna Pruriens and D-AA-CC augments your body’s entire testosterone boosting process – from your brain down to your testicles. In particular, both of these ingredients enhance your brain’s ability to release Luteinizing Hormone (LH) into your bloodstream.
Once LH reaches your gonads, this triggers a hormonal chain reaction that ultimately ends in boosted testosterone. Add in KSM-66’s testosterone boosts and you’ve got yourself a powerful, efficient, and multi-angular T boosting stack.
However, Performance Lab Sport T-booster isn’t just about boosting testosterone; it’s also about protecting and sustaining high T.
This is where this product’s give-and-take strategy comes into play. You see, with DAA’s great testosterone boosting power also comes with elevated estrogen. Luckily, Performance Lab Sport T-Booster uses a promising and competitive estrogen-blocker in Luteolin so you enjoy all of DAA, Ashwagandha (KSM-66), and Mucuna Pruriens’ testosterone boosting prowess without having to worry about catabolic female hormones.
Speaking of catabolic and female hormones, Performance Lab Sport T-booster also has the ability to block cortisol and prolactin via KSM-66 and Mucuna Pruriens. Both cortisol and prolactin can disrupt the HPG axis (and your muscle growth) if left unchecked. Therefore, by regulating these two anti-T hormones, Performance Lab Sport T-booster also ensures that your body produces testosterone like a well-oiled machine.
Performance Lab SPORT T-Booster Benefits: Does it Work?
HELL YES. And it’s designed spectacularly well, too. Here’s a breakdown of its strategy:
- D-AA-CC and Mucuna Pruriens signals your brain to release more LH
- Ashwagandha refines the release of LH
- LH travels your bloodstream until it reaches your testicles where it signals for amplified testosterone production
Testosterone protection and sustainability:
- Luteolin blocks aromatase activity for lower estrogen
- Ashwagandha and Mucuna Pruriens prevent cortisol from rising
- Mucuna Pruriens decreases prolactin
All in all, Performance Lab SPORT T-Booster is a nearly complete package. The way it sharpens the whole testosterone boosting process while also regulating anti-T hormones is, in my opinion, elite. Plus, it also has performance benefits (in the bed and at the gym) that amplifies the effects of boosted test and your training.
If I had anything I wish it had, it would be an ingredient that limits SHBG (e.g., Fenugreek, Boron, Stinging Nettle). This would’ve given this product a little extra T bump. Nonetheless, I think it’s equally great for mature men (i.e., males over 30 years old), athletes, and bodybuilding enthusiasts.
Performance Lab SPORT T-Booster Review Summary
- Quality and Quantity – 3 of 4 ingredients have enhanced forms while all of them get solid dosages
- Give-and-take strategy – Effectively enhances the entire T boosting pathway while also defending testosterone and the HPG axis from specific hormones that might disturb it. This also makes Performance Lab SPORT T-Booster one hell of an anabolic supplement.
- POWERFUL – All caps on that for extra emphasis. Performance Lab SPORT T-Booster may seem short-handed on ingredients but by no means is it in lacking power
- Safe – All of the natural ingredients used here don’t pose any threat of major side effects. Plus, if you’re an athlete, these ingredients aren’t going to get you banned.
- No anti-SHBG ingredients – Personally, I think having Fenugreek, Boron, or Stinging Nettle here could’ve given Performance Lab SPORT T-Booster more depth.
- Exclusive – Not at GNC, Amazon or stores… can only buy the official Performance Lab website.

The Bottom Line
I’ve written plenty of reviews on products with long lists of ingredients but in my opinion, Performance Lab Sport T-Booster’s compact formula is one of the best ones this 2018. With only four well chosen ingredients that effectively enhance the entire HPG axis through a multi-angular, smart, and synergistic give-and-take strategy, this stack outclasses and outperforms most other testosterone boosters with longer formulas. Good job, Opti-Nutra. Kudos, Performance Lab.
