During our youthful barbarian days, it’s all about spontaneity.
When you get older, you grow a brain and you start planning shit. Because, really, that’s probably the smarter thing to do before leaving the house in the morning.
With that in mind, BioXgenix High Test is a well-planned testosterone booster for the older men with brains. It doesn’t depend on spontaneous bursts in caffeinated energy or cheap, druggy stimulation. It has an all-natural, healthy plan to help sustain your waning hormone fuel & T drive.
The irony being that after taking this formula you might regress back to your younger dumbass self.
About BioXgenix High Test
Manufactured by BioXgenix, a division of MD Science Lab LLC, BioXgenix High Test is a reportedly “Physician Approved” male performance enhancer. While we’re not sure about the “Physician Approved” bit, the second part checks out given the formula’s “4 Prong Plan.” Formula notes:
- 4 Prong Plan: We won’t spoil too many details, but the plan involves muscles, testosterone, sex, and the prostate. Get excited.
- Premium Quality: Most of the herbs are supplied in high quality, potent extract forms, a couple of the extracts being well-known brands.
- 15-Day Supplement: Given the price of this product, we expected more capsules in the bottles. We recommend finding a retailer that sells it cheaper.

The 4-Prong Plan: Muscles. Testosterone. Sex. Prostate.
Ya buddy. What else does a man need?
With exception to the 65″ OLED TV, BioXgenix High Test seems to have it all and then some. But does the stack try to do too much? Or is the 4-Prong Plan failproof? Let’s start the review:
Hormone Releasing X Complex
Which hormone exactly? Growth hormone.
BioXgenix High Test aims to “release” this hormone via amino acids. And the research on whether or not this actually works is fairly mixed: One article states that specific amino acids, such as Arginine, Lysine, & Ornithine (all found in this blend) may “stimulate growth hormone (GH) release when infused intravenously or administered orally.” Yet, the degree of GH release may significantly alter based on any number of factors relating to exercise, gender, age, diet, etc.
However, despite the unreliability of BCAAs, we’ve noted plenty of other benefits (e.g. reduced stress) associated with their supplementation that may justify their use in this supplement.
Testosterone Boosting X Complex
Only one ingredient here, sitting on a hefty 600 mg dosage: Testofen.
Which is a quality, branded form of Fenugreek, a valuable, natural testosterone booster (and libido enhancer!) found in many of the best man boosters currently on the market. Granted, there are better testosterone boosting ingredients to choose from, we can’t complain with Fenugreek, which seems to work by inhibiting sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) & 5-alpha reductase. The result being increased levels of free T.
Natural Factors X Complex
Three ingredients here:
- Tribulus Terrestris. The most popular herb in testosterone boosters isn’t much of a testosterone booster, but it is a potent sex enhancer–particularly at this high quality extract.
- Eurycoma Longifolia. Another quality extract of another potent sex enhancer, except this one has demonstrated significant benefits on testosterone levels.
- Avena Sativa. Often found in nootropic stacks for its brain wave optimizing effects, Oatstraw may help with the cerebral side of athletic male health.
Overall, this blend seems best for boosting boners and may slightly enhance other aspects of male health as well.
Prostate Safety X Complex
The prostate is pretty important, right? One of the downsides of excess T is excess DHT, an even manlier androgen than T, that may take a toll on prostate health when left unchecked.
Prostate Safety X Complex checks the excess DHT levels by inhibiting 5-alpha reductase, the enzyme responsible for converting T to DHT. On paper, this is a smart move, but we’d like to see more research on this male health tactic to fully convince us that it’s actually good for men.
On a side note: This blend has Bioperine, an extract of Black Pepper which helps increase nutrient absorption, thus increasing the overall bio-availability of this formula.
BioXgenix High Test mixes a variety of quality herbs & aminos (+ Zinc) in its “three pronged testosterone boosting formula” that looks like this:
- Prong 1. Hormone Releasing X Complex: Increase of growth hormone, decrease recovery time, & reduce exercise-induced fatigue through a specific set of amino acids.
- Prong 2. Testosterone Boosting X Complex: Support free testosterone levels to maintain muscle mass & reduce body fat.
- Prong 3. Natural Factors X Complex: Stronger, more frequent boners, heavier loads, improved muscular density.
The bonus prong, Prong 4 – Prostate Safety X Complex, is intended to support the safety of the prostate (doy!)–with a bonus prong within the prong: Increased absorption à la Black Pepper extract.
In terms of ingredient choices, quality, & potency, BioXgenix High Test does well for itself. It seems to lean more on performance enhancing than straight testosterone boosting, using only one of our Top 5 Favorite T-Boosters (Zinc)–also, the proprietary blend design is sort of bogus. Yet, overall, BioXgenix High Test looks like a solid, well-rounded male enhancer.
BioXgenix High Test Benefits
The benefits advertised by BioXgenix High Test:
- Promotes Lean Body Mass and Strength
- Increases Testosterone Naturally
- Libido and Energy Enhancer
- Prostate Protection
With those in mind, BioXgenix High Test seems to optimize all-around “active” male health, rather than focusing on heavy, clinical-grade testosterone increases.
Who Takes It?
Physically Active Doods. If you’re one of those guys who is always on the move, but is starting to notice (or has been noticing) a sudden slowness to your activity, be it physical, sexual, etc., then BioXgenix High Test is your T-booster. Not quite for the elderly gents, but solid for men on the older end of physical maturity.
Any Side Effects?
None reported. The label recommends using the product for at least 2 months, so they seem to have confidence in the long term safety of this product. The only “side effect” that outright jumps at us is Fenugreek’s “maple syrupy” smell that may invade your sweat & urine.
But that’s not too bad of a side effect, right?

Final Word on BioXgenix High Test
Muscles. Testosterone. Sex. Prostate. These are the buzzwords being tossed around BioXgenix High Test, which seems to support all of these in its 3 capsule daily, 15-day bottles. If the biggest drawback of a supplement is that we want more of it in its bottles, then it must be a pretty good supplement. And BioXgenix High Test is prettay, prettay, prettay good.
