Too yellow to take the juice??
Damn right, you’re yellow.
So are we and so is Cyclo Test, the yellow, all natural Infinite Labs® stack that wants to pump you up without all of that juicy steroid nonsense. Because, frankly, we like our nuts. We like our nuts more than our muscles, believe it or not. And we don’t want them to shrivel & fall off (SEE: steroid side effects). Which is why we like formulas like Cyclo Test that want to help both your muscles and your nuts.
But is Cyclo Test all talk? Or can it actually handle deez nuts?
Let’s see what the review says:
About Cyclo Test
Manufactured by Infinite Labs, Cyclo Test is an “Anabolic Support” testosterone booster for the bodybuilding doods looking to bulk & cut at the same time. While most of the major hormone pathways are addressed in Cyclo Test’s design, the ingredients seem to tell a different story. Formula notes:
- Anabolic Support: Cyclo Test seeks to support bodybuilding growth by optimizing testosterone, growth hormone, & estrogen levels.
- Mucuna Pruriens: The best T-booster ingredient in this formula is one of our favorites, presented in a potent 19% L-DOPA extract.
- Questionable Choices: Chastetree Berry and Chamomile (Chrysin) extracts? These aren’t the best options, and might actually decrease T count.

Cyclo Test packs 3 prop blends into FD&C yellow pills to questionable effect.
Based on the titles of the blends, we’re looking at Testosterone, Growth Hormone, and Estrogen support in this pro-anabolic stack. But we’re seeing only a few ingredients that seem to actually support these functions. WT eff is that all about?
Let’s find out:
- Eurycoma Longifolia. Plain powder of an otherwise potent, multipurpose, natural sex-enhancer and testosterone booster. Also known as Tongkat Ali or Longjack.
- Stinging Nettle. Here’s the theory: Stinging Nettle inhibits sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) and aromatase to elevate “free” T numbers.
- Bioperine. This branded extract of Black Pepper helps enhance nutrient absorption, increasing the overall bioavailability of Cyclo Test’s formula. Not too shabby, y’all.
Infinite Labs Cyclo Test Estrogen Management
- Indole-3-Carbinol. I3C is a precursor to estrogen regulator Diindolylmethane (DIM). Which has us questioning why Cyclo Test doesn’t supply DIM instead?
- Chastetree Berry 20:1. Sure, Chaste Tree might reduce estrogen, but research suggests it also reduces testosterone. Reducing testosterone is a bad way to boost testosterone.
- Chamomile 10:1. Common source of Chrysin, a buzzword T-booster that seems to only work when injected directly into the nuts. Nah, we’re good! Thank you!
Infinite Labs Cyclo Test Growth Factor Amplification
- Mucuna Pruriens Extract. Topping our BIG List of T-Boosters, Mucuna is looking hot here with a potent 19% extract of L-DOPA for more dopamine, GH, & T, baby.
- Coleus Forskohlii Extract. Typically found in fat burners, Forskohlii is a wildcard ingredient that may benefit T (for overweight users), but some research also suggests it may increase stress hormone cortisol, which is not good for T.
We’re categorizing this supplement under “testosterone boosters,” yet this product has a total of 3 hormones in mind: Testosterone, Growth Hormone, & Estrogen.
In effort to increase the first two hormones (T & GH) while checking the third (E), Cyclo Test aims to create an inner ecosystem of anabolic strength gains and lean muscle mass for all you big, dumb, meathead animals.
But there’s one problem with their plan: The ingredients kind of suck.
Of all the T-boosters presented, only one is presented in top-quality form: Mucuna Pruriens. And while it’s a high value T-booster, it isn’t enough to make up for the poor quality & choices of Cyclo Test’s other ingredients.
For example(s): I3C isn’t as effective as DIM. Chaste Berry may reduce T. Chrysin may not do anything. Eurycoma Longifolia is in cheap powder form. Stinging Nettle is in cheap powder form.
Forskohlii might do something good here, but it’s hard to say at this point. And the Bioperine helps increase the potency of Cyclo Test’s otherwise impotent herbs. Yet, the success of these ingredients don’t outright guarantee the “Anabolic Support” claim advertised on this supplement’s bottle.
Doggs… we can do better.
Cyclo Test Benefits
The benefits advertised by Cyclo Test include (word for word):
- Optimize Free Testosterone Levels
- Enhance Natural HGH Levels
- Support Minimal Estrogen Impact on the Body
- Promote Strength, Muscle and Performance Gains
Cyclo Test may achieve these benefits to a degree, but it’s hard to imagine too much of an impact in any of these departments given the quality of the formula.
Who Takes It?
Lean Beefcakes. You want to bulk up while slimming down? Cyclo Test says hellll ya. The mix of GH releasers & fat burner Forskohlii fit Cyclo Test’s identity as a proper bodybuilding supplement.
Any Side Effects?
None reported. The only ingredient to watch out for is Forskohlii, which may spark some of the mud butt due to its cAMP activity on the GI tract. Infinite Labs suggests cycling with a 12 week “on” + 12 week “off” cycle.

Final Word on Cyclo Test
Is Cyclo Test an awful supplement? No, it’s still a decent anabolic test booster. We just wouldn’t rank it on our Best 5 T-Boosters List anytime soon. There are positive user reviews to back up this stack, so it seems to be working for something. We just think it could work better.
