The New Get-Shit-Done Diet Plan:
- Prepare breakfast.
- Prepare lunch & dinner.
- Blend them all together and voila!
Time to eat! — leaving you free for the rest of the day to get shit done, wasting none of that time that otherwise would’ve been wasted on the two to three meals following breakfast. Of course, this means you’ll need to do a lot of cramming in the morning, all at once, which is neither safe nor really possible.
But we like the theory.
Metis Nutrition JXT5 follows a similar theory, and we like this one, too. But how does it hold up in practice? Read the review to find out.
About Metis Nutrition JXT5
Manufactured by Metis Nutrition, JXT5 is a Testosterone + Joint Support hybrid designed with a 5-in-1 support system for: Testosterone, Joints, Libido, Prostate, & Vision (& possibly more). The male supplement to end all male supplements …theoretically speaking. Formula notes:
- 5-in-1 Hybrid: JXT5 stacks blends on blends in blends with respective names for each to make sense of how its 20+ ingredients are intended to work.
- Proprietary: Not all ingredients but most of them are hidden within the prop blends hidden within the overarching JXT5™ Proprietary Blend.
- Quality Extracts: While the individual quantity of each ingredient remains a general mystery, the quality of JXT5’s herbs & compounds is potent & on-point.

JXT5 stacks blends on blends on blends in its 5-in-1 hybrid testosterone booster design.
Of the 20+ ingredients (26? Do I see 26?), JXT5 misses out on all of the big boy T-boosters, most notably D-Aspartic Acid, Zinc, & D3. The vitamins & minerals it goes with instead:
- B Vitamins – B6 may improve mood & testosterone, whereas B12 simply assists with general cognitive & metabolic health as you age.
- Calcium – Potentially assists with testosterone, although it acts as competitive absorption inhibitor of more important T-booster minerals, e.g., zinc.
- Chromium – Often supplemented as a fat burner, potentially adding a “lean muscle” element to this supplement — however small.
Not a bad set-up but nothing to get too excited over. But that only covers 4 of the 26(?) ingredients in this formula, the rest of which can be found in JXT5’s blends, starting with:
SURGE-T TESTOSTERONE + LIBIDO Blend
Shooting for both testosterone and libido here, yet the blend seems to overemphasize the latter over the former (not that we’re complaining). Check out the ingredients:
Fenugreek (as Testosurge®) – Quality patented extract of decent “free” test booster but an even better sex & recovery enhancer. Also, fenugreek makes your sweat smell maple syrup, which can be sort of fun.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) – Not sure why supplement manufacturers still supply DHEA: it doesn’t do much for test when consumed orally, plus it’s banned from use in sport — despite its inefficiency at enhancing athletic performance.
And then there’s the Trib-T Complex, a proprietary amalgamation of Tribulus, Pygeum africanum Bark, Stinging Nettle, Eurycoma longifolia, & Safed Musli — all presented as concentrated extracts, although not the best for T: only Eurycoma provides well-demonstrated boosts on testosterone, whereas the remaining ingredients are simply good for male health and/or libido.
JOINT SUPPORT Blend
An important stack for the big boys, alleviating the joint strain afforded by their massive muscle weight. The leading ingredient in particular, Calcium Fructoborate (as FruiteX-B®), seems to offer fast-acting joint support, whereas the remaining mix of ingredients has been specifically studied for joint pain improvement to a positive, yet questionable effect.
PROSTATE + LIVER SUPPORT Blend
Milk Thistle is a popular bodybuilder choice for liver protection, delivered here in a potent 80% silymarin standardized extract. Saw Palmetto‘s inhibition of 5-alpha reductase offers significant prostate protection, whereas Lycopene provides general antioxidant protection across the body. Not a bad set-up.
This blend takes it further with Estrogen-Suppress Support, in the form of Diindolylmethane (DIM) & Chrysin, the former of which works by inhibiting aromatase, the enzyme responsible for converting T to estrogen; the latter doing nothing, unless you inject it directly into your testicles, which is, for obvious reasons, inadvisable.
OCULAR HEALTH Blend
Because what’s the point of better muscles & sex if you can’t see, am I right?? Not too sure if JXT5 needs an eye support blend, but, hey, we’ll take it (we have no choice). Marigold supports eye health with its rich supply of xanthophyll & lutein, whereas Bilberry treats diarrhea & scurvy …oh, and it may improve vision in lower light settings.
Our homie BioPerine®, the trademarked black pepper extract that should be in every supplement for its nutrient enhancing abilities. In fact, ingredients such as JXT5’s turmeric are practically useless without black pepper due to their low oral absorption rate.
Metis Nutrition JXT5 is being modest when it advertises itself as a “Testosterone + Joint” supplement, as clearly it intends to be much more than that. Which is groovy and all, but there’s one question that immediately pops to mind when we come across a do-it-all formula like JXT5’s:
Are the dosages high enough to handle this much content?
In the case of JXT5, the answer is both No and I don’t know:
- “No” – Overall, the proprietary blend supplies 1,888 mg to cover its 20+ ingredients. Granted, some of the dosages look decent, but not all.
- “I don’t know” – The blend’s proprietary status is in itself a negative as it obscures the individual ingredient dosages of every ingredient in this formula, which, again, doesn’t exactly raise our confidence given the low overall dosage.
For a point of comparison, check out the dosage on Prime Male‘s single D-AA-CC ingredient — it’s 1,600 mg, nearly the entire dosage of JXT5’s entire 20+ ingredient blend. You’ll see other supplements on our Best 5 Testosterone Supplements list that provide higher dosages in single ingredients than JXT5 does for its blend.
To JXT5’s credit, this also means that their formula packs a wider, more diverse roster of ingredients than most other top formulas. Whether or not all of JXT5’s diverse benefits are adequately expressed remains to be seen.
Metis Nutrition JXT5 claims to provide 5-in-1 support for:
At the least, the supplement has specific proprietary blends designated for these benefits, with ingredients backed by decent research — however, JXT5 might be doing too much here, spreading its focus thin across too many biopathways and, as a result, failing to sufficiently meet their ends. Having said that, JXT5 is backed by predominantly positive customer reviews, one of which mentions pain relief in an old knee injury.
Who Takes It?
Sore Lifters. After several months of massive muscle tissue pulling on your joints and excess testosterone running amok on your glandular systems, it’s time to repair. JXT5 repairs while keeping the testosterone party going for bodybuilders who can’t stop & won’t stop (despite what their body might be telling them).
Any Side Effects?
None reported. If anything, this is an anti-side effect supplement for its extracurricular support on male health, targeting the usual ailments of a bodybuilder/athlete lifestyle: joint pain, liver & prostate health, estrogen levels, etc.
- 5-in-1. Testosterone, Joint, Libido, Prostate, & Vision (+ more).
- Quality Extracts. JXT5 tosses the plain powder for the potent std. extracts.
- Positive Reviews. Not all customers but many are happy with JXT5.
- Thinly Spread. Too much action here for JXT5 to sufficiently cover.
- Proprietary. JXT5 only shows us its decent dosages, suspiciously hiding the majority of the formula’s ingredients.
- DHEA. Ironically, JXT5’s athlete-geared formula is banned for use by athletes.

Final Word on Metis Nutrition JXT5
Metis Nutrition knows what works for what, making competent ingredient choices that make sense for their advertised purposes in JXT5, buuut… there’s simply too much going on here for the entire formula to work. Granted, the joint support is a valuable advantage to testosterone boosting, especially for the bodybuilders, and may help the bigger guys who need to sort, ya know, chill out for a bit on the whole get-big thing.
