I can see it in your face:
Ya big goof, you want to be an alpha, don’t you?
That’s what brought you to this product (named Alpha), which lead you to search this review on the aforementioned Alpha, to determine whether or not it achieves alpha male standards of athletic enhancement. We have to say: We’re not convinced by Alpha’s goofy Nickelodeon design.
But who’s to say that a big goof can’t be an alpha?
About Neovicta Alpha
Alpha by Neovicta advertised itself as a Testosterone Booster, which it has since taken back, replacing the phrase with “Proven Enhancement.” Neither are true: Alpha doesn’t boost T nor is it “proven” for anything. So what the hell is going on here then?? Formula notes:
- Triple Blend Complex: i.e., three proprietary blends subsuming Neovicta Alpha’s nine ingredients under three overall dosages.
- Fenugreek Extract: The star ingredient of this formula is impressively potent, hitting the high extract mark of 50% Fenugreek saponins.
- LivSupport Blend: Milk Thistle & N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine provide a detox edge to this performance enhancer, protecting the body & liver against nasty toxins.

Endurance, Power, & LivSupport — nice! …but where’s the T?
To be clear, Alpha by Neovicta does not actually increase T:
Alpha’s formulation works in three phases. The first blend is composed of powerful natural extracts designed to help elevate your body’s potential. The second blend focuses on optimizing for endurance, and is formulated to synergize with the first blend. LivSupport – the final blend – provides support for healthy liver, adrenal, and cortisol function. This booster is not designed to increase your testosterone levels, but rather deliver all-natural improvement.”
So Alpha wants to “help elevate your body’s potential.” Written in that special supplement PR-ish sort of vagueness. Let’s check out the blends to figure out what which potential they’re referring to here:
Endurance Blend, 105 mg
“Endurance” is a strange modifier for at least three reasons, those three reasons each being one of the three ingredients in this blend:
- Indole-3-Carbinol – Less effective E-inhibitor than diindolylmethane.
- Chrysin – Does nothing unless inject directly into the testes. (YEWWW!)
- Resveratrol – Healthy antioxidant, decent E-inhibitor.
“Estrogen Blend” would’ve been a more appropriate title for this proprietary blend, not Endurance Blend. Even so, it wouldn’t be much better as the only decent ingredient (Resveratrol) is prioritized last, consuming the least portion of this small dosage (105 mg).
Power Blend, 720 mg
We can live with “Power” here for the powerful, potent Fenugreek Extract:
Fenugreek Extract – Standardized to 50% saponins, the bioactive constituents of this sex enhancing (“free”) testosterone booster. May cause your sweat & urine to smell maple syrupy.
The remaining ingredients are aight, providing two plain, cheap* plant powders (*relative to plant extract) — Cissus quadrangularis (for athletic joint health) & Tongkat Ali (more sex-enhancing free testosterone boosts) — and 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran, a compound found in Stinging Nettle, which might assist with male hormones. Might.
LivSupport Blend, 300 mg
Milk Thistle Extract – Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory detox herb, especially for the liver, making this a popular plant among bodybuilders & steroid users.
N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine – Helps the body synthesize glutathione, the body’s natural defense compound against free radicals, protecting the body & liver against toxins.
Foreshadowed by the Nickelodeon goo vibe of Neovicta Alpha’s bottle, this supplement’s goofiness runs formula deep, causing us to take second & third glances at what we’re looking at — This blend doesn’t enhance endurance, unless, wait… surely endurance enhances when estrogen is inhibited, right? But this blend doesn’t even inhibit estrogen very well.
At some point we had to shut down our collective interior monologues and reach a conclusion, that conclusion being: This product is goofy, and men don’t need a goofy product.
*manly hand wipe* Now what?
Not that it’s a completely shitty goofy product: Neovicta impresses with a potent Fenugreek extract and healthy LivSupport Blend that, admittedly, isn’t entirely necessary for this weak formula. But that’s about as far as the Pros go, which are vastly outweighed by the:
- Dosage masking proprietary blends
- Low overall blend dosages
- Ineffective ingredients (e.g. I3C, Chrysin)
In essence, Neovicta Alpha will not increase T beyond Nickelodeon levels. To be fair, they don’t make any specific claims of increasing T.
Neovicta Alpha Benefits
Neovicta’s benefit claims on Alpha’s bottle:
- Increase Strength & Muscle Mass
- Improve Athletic Performance
- Enhance Libido & Vitality
Perhaps, at least as far as the Fenugreek extract is willing to take you. We’re not entirely confident, or even minimally confident, in the other ingredients, but the Fenugreek seems study enough to provide its ergogenic muscle recovery aide — provoking the question: Why not just supplement standalone Fenugreek?
Because the joint & liver support, dood!
Oh, that’s right: Neovicta Alpha also provides decent joint & liver support. Good point, dood.
Who Takes It?
Athletic Weightlifters. The biggest selling points of this formula are the Fenugreek, an herb primarily geared towards younger active men, and the muscle & liver supporters, a detox advantage for the heavy-hitting, exercising-perhaps-too-much individual.
Any Side Effects?
Nope. If anything, this product intends to be an anti-side effect formula for its LivSupport blend and Resveratrol antioxidant power. At the least, none of the customer reviews have reported of any significant adverse effects.

Final Word on Neovicta Alpha
Alpha by Neovicta is a goofy looking supplement, filled with a goofy formula. But it’s our goofy formula, guys, and we must cherish it for what it is: A healthy, cleansing Fenugreek sample with the potential to be/do more. If you can get your hands on the lower (much, much lower) priced Alpha, we say go for it. Otherwise, we recommend aiming higher. (Like this high.)
