¡Viva la Revolución!
And get excited, man, because this revolución that we’re viva-ing is surprisingly…
Healthy… Fricking cool, huh?… ಠ_ಠ
Because that’s how we revolutionize in the 21st century now after the last 100 years of 8-hour sit-com marathons and deep fat fried cheese curds. We go back to what we were doing for the 10,000+ years prior to the 20th century: Not sitting on our asses and not eating cheese curds.
Revolution Test takes it the next revolutionary level in supplement manufacturing by providing “healthy” T levels that are actually, well… healthy.
About Revolution Test
FinaFlex is starting a revolution and it’s called Revolution Test. Selling itself as a “complete sports performance supplement,” Revolution Test claims to increase T while decreasing estrogen–and it does this plus more. Way more. Perhaps TOO much more. Formula notes:
- D-Aspartic Acid: It doesn’t get much better than this for T-boosting… Actually, it doesn’t get better than this: DAA is simply the best for T.
- Body Protection: Revolution Test has the backs of your liver, cardio, & prostate with its 3 additional “body protecting” blends.
- Letrosterone: Unique trademarked extract of Brassaiopsis glomerulata, a potentially up-and-coming estrogen-blocking plant from ‘Nam.

Revolution Test takes the Offensive & Defensive on T-PRODUCTION.
Offensive = Increased T levels.
Defensive = Protection against excess T levels.
It’s a smart design and strangely under-utilized considering the potentially risky effects associated with hormonal “funking around.” However, the concept is much easier to… conceptualize than execute.
Let’s see how Revolution Test does:
Testosterone Amplification Blend, 750 mg
Revolution Test’s primary T-boosting blend shoots for 3 and hits 3 with these ingredients—one of which tops our BIG LIST of T-Boosters at #1: D-Aspartic Acid (DAA).
The other two boosters include:
- Fenugreek. Standardized to a potent 50% saponins, the Fenugreek here looks solid for increasing “active” free T levels.
- Tongkat Ali. Another potent T-boosting herb that increases “active” free T levels while also decrease stress hormone cortisol—one study showing an improved cortisol:T ratio by 36%.
Combined, these three T-boosters seem to directly and indirectly increase T activity via various mechanisms (increasing signaling for T-synthesis, deactivation of SHBG, inhibition of 5-alpha reductase…) as the BEST for TEST do, but we’re wondering how much T-boosting is happening here with this somewhat small 750 mg dosage.
This is enough for the herbs, but DAA requires upwards of 2.5 g to 3.0 g daily for Critical Mass Dosage. You’d need to triple the dosage here for DAA alone.
Liver Enzyme Regulation Blend, 300 mg
If the last blend is the “Offensive” portion of Revolution Test, then this blend accomplishes the “Defensive” aspect. Which is actually warranted considering DAA’s major boosting power.
The two “defense” ingredients: N-Acetyl L-Cystine (NAC) & Milk Thistle.
Bodybuilders should be familiar with Milk Thistle. It’s a common herb for liver detoxification—an important consideration whenever hormone levels are being altered.
Cardiovascular Support, 200 mg
Alright, we’re starting to get a little distracted from the main goal: Boosting T. But let’s see what’s going on here:
- Red Yeast Rice Powder. Primarily used to decrease excess cholesterol blood levels, thus increasing overall cardio health.
- Coenzyme Q10. Necessary here considering that Red Yeast Rice Powder has been shown to deplete CoQ10 levels.
Perhaps the idea is to protect the cardio system against excess cholesterol afforded by increased T-production activity (cholesterol being the precursor base for T), but we’re not sure if this is at all necessary. Especially when you consider that “natural statins” such as Red Yeast Rice Powder might actually decrease T-synthesis through decreasing cholesterol levels.
Prostate Shield, 160 mg
Now, we’re getting back on target. The prostate, like the liver, is affected by altering sex hormone levels. So prostate protection makes sense here. And the ingredients used in this blend are molto good, esé: Saw Palmetto, Pygeum Bark, Stinging Nettle, & Lycopene.
Excess DHT seems to have a negative effect on the prostate—and although DHT is a manlier androgen than T that probably shouldn’t be casually reduced, herbs such as these that prevent conversion of T to DHT may help prostate health under conditions of increased T.
We’re wondering if Revolution Test could’ve accomplished the same effect here with only one of these ingredients (Stinging Nettle, for instance, would have sufficed), but we won’t bitch about it.
Letrosterone, 100 mg
Unique to FinaFlex supps, Letrosterone is a trademarked extract of Brassaiopsis Glomerulata (Vietnamese-grown tree), which may have compounds (dehydroloiolide that inhibit aromatase—the enzyme responsible for converting T to estrogen.
That’s right. We gotta stop that shit.
Although there’s a current lack of evidence to support Brassaiopsis Glomerulata’s anti-aromatase action in humans, FinaFlex is smart to get the jump on this potentially effective estrogen-blocker.
Revolution Test is like that mom who made you wear seven jackets and six pairs of socks because it was below 60 degrees outside. It’s almost too overprotective (redundancy intended).
Overall, the formula stacks up to 2 “Offensive” blends & 3 “Defensive” blends—the latter of which seems excessive considering that there are only 3 actual T-boosters (1 of which is under-dosed).
To get an idea of how much T-boosting we’re looking at here, we’ll start our analysis with the 2 “Offensive” blends:
- Testosterone Amplification Blend. Dosaged at 750 mg, there’s plenty of space here for premium extracted herbs to play around in and jack up some free “bio-active” T levels. Yet, DAA, our favorite BIG boy booster, needs much, much more than 750 mg.
- Letrosterone. Even this blend is arguably “Defensive” since it defends against estrogen. But the net value is more T due to less T conversion to estrogen… That is if Letrosterone works in humans.
Looking at other successful athletic-geared T-boosters, you’ll see much more (clinically-backed) T-boosting than what’s happening here. Instead, Revolution Test leans heavily on its liver-, cardio-, prostate-supporting blends, which of course don’t boost T, but theoretically deal with the repercussions of boosted T.
And we’re not saying that that’s at all a bad thing—in fact, more T-boosters should be as health-conscious as Revolution Test. Yet, we’d be more excited about Revolution Test’s protection ingredients if they had BIGGER, BOLDER T-boosts.
Simply put: Revolution Test = Weak offense + Stellar defense.
Much like the ’15 – ‘16 Denver Broncos.
Who won the Super Bowl…
Shit, maybe Revolution Test is on to something here.
Revolution Test Benefits
FinaFlex claims Revolution Test works by:
- Promoting testosterone levels
- Promoting lean muscle gains
- Revitalizing energy levels
- Supporting healthy sex drive
In a nutshell, it wants to make men more menly.
We’re confident that Revolution Test will do that—however, when we see the overemphasis of “Defense” (i.e. protecting the liver, cardio, prostate) over “Offense” (i.e. boosting T), the amount of menliness granted here seems limited.
Sure, Revolution Test will help increase muscle mass, energy, & sex drive, but not to the degree of formulas that put a larger emphasis on DAA.
All the same, not a bad choice here if you’re wanting to stay healthy & alive while boosting T.
Who Takes It?
Men who call their bodies a “temple.” You know the type. Perhaps you are the type. And if you’re not, you probably should be: The “body is a temple” cliché is a cliché because it’s solid advice. T-boosters have a knack for ironically sacrificing “health” for healthy T levels. Revolution Test is changing that… like a revolution or something.
Any Side Effects?
Nope. If anything, this is the premier “anti-side effect” T-booster. We’d almost recommend this T-booster simply to decrease the negative effects of other T-boosters.
However, take note that FinaFlex advises a maximum 8 weeks “on” cycle with Revolution Test (most likely due to the DAA content). After which you should “off” cycle for about 2-4 weeks.
Revolution Test Summary

- Red Yeast Rice Powder. Potentially lowers T for cardioprotection we don’t need.
Pricing & Buying Info

Final Word on Revolution Test
If you’re big on Revolution Test, FinaFlex recommends their “Revolution Test Stack”—which includes Revolution Test + Pure Test (3 g DAA). Normally, we’re against such blatant money-grubbing tactics, but Revolution Test is cheap enough to warrant the duo supplement stack. Extra DAA? Sure, why the hell not? Otherwise, take Revolution Test for what it is: Body detox with decent secondary T-boosts.
