In this article, we’ll take an in-depth look at the Prime Labs Prime Test, a supplement marketed for improving testosterone.
I plan on looking at all of the claims, its ingredients and to really dissect everything that it offers. No detail or aspect will be left out.
I hope and strive this to be the most comprehensive article on this supplement out there.
Prime Labs Prime Test Review – Claims Of The Thing
Okay, so there are a few problems with the Prime Labs Prime Test right off the bat.
I tried really hard to find their official home page but was completely unable to. Therefore, I’ve no idea what the manufacturer really is about and are they any good as an organization.
Amazon has listed some of its claims that most likely originate from the manufacturer, but that is quite a guess nonetheless. It might be of some other source as well.
It is claimed that it helps in optimizing physical performance, building stronger and leaner muscles and improving mood. A claim of providing many essential health boosters is also asserted.
It’s also claimed that the supplement is backed by real studies.
Apparently, the manufacturer calls this the best boost and male enhancer out there.
But to finish this all off, at the time of writing this article Prime Labs Prime Test is also the #1 Best Seller on Amazon in category “Sports Nutrition Testosterone Boosters”.
The Core Is 7 Various Substances Plus Boron
In its very essence, Prime Labs Prime Test is a supplement compiled of 7 various beneficial substances, most of which are herbs, and the element Boron – all for the combined amounts of 1484 milligrams. They call this the Testosterone Blend.
These seven substances are Horny Goat Weed (leaf), Tongkat Ali Extract (root), Saw Palmetto Extract (root), Orchic Substance, Wild Yam Extract (root), Sarsaparilla (root), Nettle Extract (root). So, these are and will be the ones that will be responsible for all (if any) benefits.
So, let’s discuss some of that.
Horny Goat Weed is an herb mainly recognized as a tool for combating low libido and erectile dysfunction both in men and in women. On top of that it does, however, offer also significant benefits in regards to bone health, as well as benefits in regards to testosterone production, increasing lean muscle mass, preventing inflammation, boosting energy levels and providing other benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
All in all, it’s a very versatile substance providing a large number of various health benefits. In that sense, the same can be said about Tongkat Ali Extract.
This substance also improves the gaining of lean muscle mass, stimulates libido, promotes sperm motility, as well as semen quality, and supports muscle growth. It is also great for maintaining bone health and improving mood by rising physical and mental energy level [R, R, R, R, R].
Saw Palmetto is another substance, which helps with the testosterone levels, also increasing libido. On top of that, it also improves prostate health, the urological system, helps with hair loss, as well as boosts immunity [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Orchic Substance supposedly is good for Testosterone, but there is no evidence to actually support that. Nonetheless, it’s mainly used as a substance to maintain healthy testicular function. It’s also considered a powerful libido-boosting substance [R, R, R].
Wild Yam is a very diverse substance. In total there are over 600 species of it, yet only about 12 are edible. But the edible ones offer quite some benefits. There’s nowhere near as many potential benefits as Tongkat Ali, but they’re solid nonetheless.
Wild Yam relieves menstruation and negative effects of menopause, aids digestion, improves cholesterol levels, potentially also regulates blood sugar and fights off cancer. Supposedly the substance can also improve muscle function [R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Sarsaparilla is a really remarkable substance that does on one hand have its own unique benefits, for example, it is considered beneficial in terms of fighting cancer, improving liver health, battling Arthritis, increasing sex drive, promoting detoxification, improving metabolism, promoting good sleep, skin care, as well as loads of other benefits [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Yet, on the other hand, it’s unique properties work as a booster for increasing the bioavailability of other herbs you’re consuming essentially making them more effective. Therefore, it’s truly a marvelous thing to use in conjunction with other herbs [R].
And finally, the Nettle Extract is a great substance for reducing inflammation, increasing libido, improving prostate health, decreasing blood sugar levels and reducing blood pressure, treating Eczema, relieving pain symptoms, and other benefits [R, R, R, R, R].
And lastly a few words about the Boron part.
So, in the Prime Labs Prime Test, we have Boron in the form of Boron Amino Acid Chelate. Although it’s not expressly indicated, which exact form of Amino Acid Chelate it is (there are many with various absorption rates), it’s safe to say that even in the worst case scenario, it should be a pretty good one [R, R, R].
Meaning, as it’s not indicated expressly, we can assume that it’s the worst form absorption wise. But that would still be pretty good.
Overall it must be said that all of these ingredients are really good for what the Prime Labs Prime Test is marketed for. We pretty much have improving sexual function, muscle function and energy levels across the board.
However, although many might believe that these active ingredients are all that matters, it’s not like that at all. The additives added to the supplement are also stuff that we consume with the taking of the supplement.
And in that, they can affect our health.
Additives Are Completely Okay To Consume
Essentially I wouldn’t say that the Prime Labs Prime Test is too abundant in terms of additives. Which is a good thing.
It has four.
These four are Calcium Carbonate, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Stearic Acid, and Magnesium Stearate.
Calcium Carbonate and Microcrystalline Cellulose both are completely okay to use and won’t transcend into any kind of side-effects for the supplement. As for the Stearic Acid and Magnesium Stearate, it’s not that straight forward though [R, R, R, R].
If you’ve ever googled something like “Stearic Acid side-effects” or “Magnesium Stearate side-effects”, you most likely have come across articles that actually state that these are harmful and should not ever be consumed [R, R, R, R, R, R].
Sadly though, all of these articles are based on what I believe might be either low-quality research or just random misconceptions.
The truth is that after actually diving into and immersing oneself into everything that is thrown at these two additives, I have to agree with the minority doctors, scientists and health experts that these are absolutely harmless additives to consume [R, R, R, R, R].
Thus, it can be said that the Prime Labs Prime Test is actually also completely safe from the additive point of view.
There is, however, another aspect I would like to discuss that seems not to be as pretty as the first two,
Manufacturing Practices May Be The Only Downside
Yes, they matter quite a bit. Few things are directly correlated with those.
First is the actual congruency to the label, meaning the ingredients that it claims to have. In poor practices, the supplements will be highly incongruent not only in terms of the amounts of vitamins, minerals or in this case the beneficial substances that it has, but also in the substances and herbs that it has as such.
Or, in other words, if the supplement is poorly manufactured, it can actually have herbs that are not mentioned on the label. Which, however, is not as bad as the next point.
Meaning not only is it possible to have less of the claimed active ingredients, but it’s also possible to have unlisted or incidental additives. Meaning there might be a case of the Prime Labs Prime Test actually having more additives than it claims to have.
And lastly, it is all about the supplement’s purity. Not having sophisticated enough of purifying practices in place, may end up in you having contaminants in your supplement, which can take a toll on your health or just, in general, affect you negatively and be an extra unneeded burden for your health.
While all of these are not necessarily true in regards to the Prime Labs Prime Test, it still is a possibility.
This is because I was completely unable to find any kind or type of information that would specify what kind of care and practices are used in manufacturing the supplement.
The only remotely and superficially with the supplement connected organization that I was able to find was Prime Labs. But these Prime Labs from what I can tell are completely unrelated to the supplementation manufacturing, which makes you wonder, who manufacturers the Prime Labs Prime Test.
On top of that is the label design, which at least for me does not establish any kind of trustworthiness of the brand. I know that this is subjective, but I just wanted to put it out there, cause you might be thinking the same. Definitely let me know your thoughts in the comment section below.
Will This Help Me Sleep Better?
Originally, when I was asked to review the supplement, I was also in a way asked if this supplement could actually help one sleep better?
Based on all the ingredients that the supplement has and its benefits, I believe that it could possibly be the case.
There’s the Sarsaparilla, which as of itself promotes sleep. On top of that sleeping better should also just be a sort of a byproduct of having improved energy levels and metabolism.
Improved sleep also might have some correlation with the effects of boosting immunity and preventing inflammation.
Final Thoughts On Prime Labs Prime Test
All in all, if the Prime Labs Prime Test is what it claims to be and it employs and adheres to at least somewhat decent manufacturing practices, then no doubt this is a great supplement.
The benefits that the herbs provide are truly marvelous and definitely have the potential to increase the sexual and muscle function, as well as energy levels and metabolism, and have many other positive effects. What makes it even better is that it only has harmless additives.
The bad side though is that the actual manufacturing practices used in producing the supplement are completely enveloped in the darkness.
To actually solve this, I believe that conclusions can be drawn from how they present and market the Prime Labs Prime Test. Essentially all that they are saying about the supplement in regards to its potential benefits is definitely true. On top of that, it’s also an Amazon #1 bestseller with a decent rating.
All of which indirectly lead to somewhat believe that it should be a solid product, but again that can’t be for sure.
What do you think? :)
Cheers and have a Great One!
