Review Overview: What does ULTRA TEST do?
Describing itself as the ‘perfect testosterone booster’ Ultra Test claims to help those that suffer from hormonal imbalances.
The ingredients are natural and the product states it can help raise stamina and libido.
However, it doesn’t matter what the product states, it matters what the product can do. Natural ingredients are definitely what we’re looking for, but if they’re not effective ones. We could be wasting our time.
On the plus side however, Ultra Test does come with a 100% satisfaction money-back guarantee, so if it doesn’t work out there shouldn’t be a problem (whether shipping is included in this option however is unknown.)
How does ULTRA TEST work?
This is the most crucial part for any T-Booster. How do the ingredients used, benefit our situation? Are they proven, is there enough used and are they safe?
Well, getting off to a good start, Ultra Test doesn’t use any proprietary blends. Every ingredient is measured and accounted for and we know exactly what were getting in each serving.
The ingredients on the other hand need work:
Magnesium – A very useful aid in increasing the amount of free testosterone in the body. One of the main problems as we get older is Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) as this increases, it binds to more of our free testosterone which takes away it’s anabolic potency and makes it unusable. Magnesium lowers the SHBG count and allows more free T to flow through the body.
Tribulus Terrestris – Help boost libido, but not much else. Usually touted for it’s efficiency at boosting testosterone – but this is definitely not the case. Trib has been proven time and again to yield no results as a T-Booster.
Chrysin – This T-Boosting ingredient is a double-edged sword. It does help boost testosterone… but has only been seen to do so when injected directly into the testicles. This is due to it’s very poor absorption rate when entering the body.
Horny Goat Weed – Another false T-Booster. Horny Goat Weed is more of an erectile aid than anything else. It has only been seen to boost testosterone in animals, but has yet to be proven to have any effective results in the same area when given to humans.
Longjack – Another libido enhancer. This nutrient can help with erectile dysfunction but definitely cannot help raise testosterone.
Saw Palmetto Berries – Has been proven to not help with any testosterone growth, however, there is small evidence that it may help prevent further prostate growth.
Hawthorn Berries – Although nothing has been proven this berry has been investigated for anti-allergen effects, although so far no evidence has been found.
Cissus Quadrangularis – Due to how this ingredient promotes bone density, it is thought that there may be some connection between Cissus increasing testosterone in the body as the two are closely linked.
Zinc – A solid testosterone boosting ingredient. This mineral is used to for reactions in the brain to boost levels of the luteinizing hormone (LH) LH is the precursor to testosterone and helps raise T-Levels, growth hormone and follicle stimulating hormones in the body.
Not a lot of these ingredients really hit the mark to really lift testosterone levels. The only effective takeaways from this product are the Magnesium and the Zinc – which won’t do much by themselves. A combination of ingredients need to be at work here to attain the best results.

Okay, so how do I take it?
Ultra Test recommends 3 capsules before bed with 8oz of water. This equates to one serving per day. We have numerous concerns about this, chiefly due to the fact that one serving a day is not enough to keep testosterone levels elevated over a 24 hour period. The best testosterone boosting supplements require around 3-4 servings a day. This keeps T-Levels elevated and the body consistently getting what it needs to grow them.
Is it dangerous, are there side effects?
There have been no reported side effects as far as we can tell.
Is there anything better out there?
Yes. The only useful ingredients in this product are the zinc and the magnesium – which won’t do that much on their own. However, there are numerous other testosterone boosters that include zinc and magnesium along with other effective and proven testosterone boosting ingredients.
We’ve made a list of the testosterone boosters out there that have the best nutrient profiles we’ve seen. Check them out below:
ULTRA TEST Review Conclusion
After taking into account all of Ultra Test’s features and how it measures up to them, we have decided that this product just isn’t worth the money.
Although it does include zinc and magnesium, that is not enough to save it from the various problems that we encountered with this product. Many of the other ingredients, such as horny goat weed and tribulus terrestris have been proven not to raise testosterone. In addition the serving suggestions for this product are poorly executed – it should be measured to be distributed throughout the day to keep T-Levels consistenly raised.
We could argue that the proprietary blends are also a plus, however, they a company should be honest with their ingredients and their measurements in the first place.
Don’t buy Ultra Test.
