Quick Take: When a brand with a name that indicates superiority makes a supplement named Test WORx, you get the impression that, well… it works superiorly compared to others. Truth is though, Test WORx has great ingredients and decent dosages but the way it is designed makes it a pretty average testosterone booster. You’ll see what I mean after you read the review.
- A product of Superior Labs, Test WORx is a testosterone booster that supposedly “supports overall well-being and hormone bioavailability”.
- From what I can deduce from their marketing, a premium brand of Tongkat Ali seems to be Test WORx’s calling card.
- Vitamins and minerals are on point in terms of form and dosage.
- The herbs are confined in a proprietary blend but Test WORx does have a couple of potent herbs in Tribulus Terrestris and Tongkat Ali.
- Weak testosterone boosts overall but tackles a few other aspects of male health.
- Available to buy online and in retail stores including the Superior Labs website and Amazon. It doesn’t seem to be on GNC though.

Test WORx’s T-Boosters & Other Ingredients
Vitamin B3 – Helps breakdown carbs, fats, and proteins to generate more energy.
Vitamin B6 – Research suggests that low levels of this vitamin results in lower levels of testosterone which makes it pretty crucial to maintaining healthy levels of test. This P-5-P form is the best there is for testosterone, too.
Vitamin B12 – Has weak research as a testosterone booster but it does seem to positively influence other aspects of male health such as sperm. The methylcobalamin you find here is also what you want to be taking since it’s the most active form of Vitamin B12.
Zinc – Without this mineral, you’d literally have no testosterone. Being directly involved in the synthesis of test while also managing prolactin and the testosterone decline that typically happens after an intense workout, Zinc to me is the best mineral for male health (followed closely by Boron).
TEST WORx® Proprietary Blend
- Tribulus Terrestris – You see this herb in nearly every natural testosterone boosting supplement but it doesn’t really boost testosterone. Being standardized to 20% saponins makes it a potent libido enhancer though.
- Maca – Similar to Tribulus Terrestris, Maca boosts libido without necessarily affecting levels of testosterone.
- Nettle – Elevates levels of “free” testosterone by stopping test from converting to estrogen and DHT, while also binding with SHBG in its place.
- Eurycoma Longifolia – Otherwise known as Tongkat Ali, this herb is also pretty great for libido but it’s also shown to boost testosterone (37%) and decrease cortisol (16%). This LJ100 form is one of the better, if not the best, forms of Tongkat Ali.
- L-Arginine – A popular bodybuilding amino acid that enhances circulation and protein synthesis. As a testosterone booster, an increase in circulation to the testes could, theoretically, also support testosterone production.
Test WORx Directions
As suggested by Superior Labs, 2 capsules of Test WORx should be taken 15 minutes before breakfast. Superior Labs also says to take Test WORx on a five days on, two days off cycle.
Let’s talk about the prop blend first. When you take a look at the Test WORx label, you’ll notice that it features “clinically proven LJ100”. The Superior Labs webpage on Test WORx also says the same thing. That said, you’d think that LJ100 (Tongkat Ali) is this stack’s main ingredient, right?
Wrong. Tongkat Ali is actually situated at the bottom half of the Test WORx prop blend. In the world of supplements, this prop blend positioning means that Tongkat Ali isn’t that much of a priority as compared to the ingredients above it. A shame, really, because Tongkat Ali seems to be one of the better natural testosterone boosters out there.
What’s really prioritized by Test WORx though, are a couple of feel goods in Tribulus Terrestris and Maca. Both make you feel horny as hell, giving you the feeling of boosted testosterone. Take note, “feeling” horny doesn’t necessarily equate to higher levels of test.
Which then takes us to the next ingredients in the prop blend: Nettle, Tongkat Ali, and L-Arginine. These 3 should’ve been the top ingredients because they actually do show test boosting potential, alongside muscle and libido benefits especially to older men with already compromised levels of testosterone. But wait,
Test WORx also has manly vitamins and minerals
And pretty good ones, too! Zinc and Vitamin B6, which are both essential for testosterone, get solid dosages and their most bioavailable forms. Vitamin B12 and B3 may not actually boost testosterone but they’re man-enhancing vitamins nonetheless. Wonderful job in this department, Test WORx!
Does it Work?
Test WORx works but I wouldn’t rank it alongside the best test boosters in the market. Why? Because it’s simply not that powerful and you can thank the poor design of its prop blend for that. Had the bottom the 3 ingredients switched places with the upper two, Test WORx would’ve become an entirely different monster.
To the credit of Superior Labs, although Test WORx isn’t that strong of a testosterone booster, it does have other masculine benefits such as enhancements in libido, stamina, sperm, and cardiovascular health.
- Vitamins and minerals – Potent forms and decent dosages.
- Tribulus Terrestris – Although it doesn’t boost testosterone, the quality that it comes with makes it a potent sex enhancer.
- LJ100 – Premium and branded Tongkat Ali.
- Safe – As with all other products that use all natural ingredients, Test WORx is likely free of any major side effects.
- Reputation – It’s popularity in Amazon is beyond overwhelming. As of counting, it has a whopping 5,434 customer reviews and 71% of its ratings are 5 stars.
- Prop blend – Not knowing how much dosage the ingredients specifically have is never a good thing.
- Wrong priorities – A testosterone booster that seems to prioritize sex over actual boosts in test. Hmm.
- Expensive – Test WORx is 5 cents away from being sold at $60. That price would be justifiable if only it was stronger but for this, that price is a little bit too much for me.
- Reputation – Yes, it’s popularity in Amazon is a good thing because you get plenty of input from other customers. Problem is though, Amazon might actually be the only place where Test WORx has high ratings.
The Bottom Line
Despite the poorly designed prop blend, Test WORx still warrants the “testosterone booster” moniker because truthfully, it still does have that potential albeit weak. Test WORx also manages to hit quite a number of factors that influence male health so it could still be pretty beneficial. Granted, there are better products for the older dude that you can get for the same price.
