Nugenix is probably the best known testosterone boosting brand on the market thanks to their commercials featuring Hall of Fame MLB player, Frank Thomas.
But Nugenix Ultimate Testosterone doesn’t live up to the hype in this review.

What we like about Nugenix Ultimate Testosterone
⇒ It Does Have One Crucial Mineral
Trace Mineral: Boron
⇒ Herbal Support
There are couple of good herbs in the supplement even if Maca Root comes in a much lower dosage than we would like to see.
⇒ Fully Transparent
Nugenix Ultimate is fully transparent with their product. You know exactly what you are getting as they do not hide anything behind a “proprietary blend”.
What we don’t like
Nugenix makes several different formulations of T boosters. Ultimate Testosterone appears to be their flagship product at the moment and they certainly charge a lot for it.
⇒ Some Unproven Over-Hyped Ingredients
D-Aspartic Acid – Case studies are often misrepresented by supplement companies and those touting D-Aspartic Acid are most certainly playing with smoke and mirrors.
In human studies, D-Aspartic Acid has been shown to boost testosterone in infertile men within the first 6 – 12 days. However, after just 1 month, their testosterone levels decreased back to baseline.
In other words, unless you are an infertile man and looking for a very temporary boost, it’s probably not going to do much for you.
Fenugreek Extract – Nugenix often uses “Testofen” in their ingredients which is a patented extraction method of Fenugreek. Interestingly they went with plain ole Fenugreek Extract in Ultimate Testosterone but either way Fenugreek is one of the most over-hyped T boosters on the market today.
Mucuna Pruriens – It’s not that Mucuna Pruriens is necessarily a bad supplement, it’s that it has no business being in your testosterone booster.
The only study we could find showcasing any improvement in T levels involved infertile men taking 5 grams (5,000 mg) daily. There is only 250 mg in a serving of Ultimate Testosterone.
Epimedium Sagittatum – More commonly known as Horny Goat Weed, it’s a good supplement for increasing erection strength but there are no actual human studies showing any effectiveness as a testosterone booster.
Stinging Nettle Root – Nettle root has only has one study on its impact on testosterone and it failed to increase it.
There was a large scale study done on men with BPH (Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia) and may help alleviate some symptoms associated with it. But it won’t do anything for your testosterone.
Nugenix spends a fortune on ads to promote their products and they are great at producing hype and excitement with clever marketing and big name endorsements.
You pay a premium for the hype though and they seem to care more about selling you than actually improving their products.
There are better testosterone boosters on the market for less money than Nugenix Ultimate Testosterone.
