Not to accuse the British Special Forces of low testosterone levels, but…
Grenade® products are reportedly designed for the British Special Forces, and if they’re willing to trust Grenade supplements with their testosterone & physical performance, then, dammit, who are we to judge? Who are WE to review & rate male nutrition supplements designed for sheer alpha male elites?
We’re Best5 Supplements, baby.
And you’re damn right we’re judging. First Grenade product on deck: Grenade AT4.
About Grenade AT4
Designed for British Special Forces, Grenade products are the real deal, and Grenade AT4 is no exception. Stacking powerful, potent test boosters with a trademarked extract of fenugreek, Grenade AT4 does enough to boost test, but does it do more? Formula notes:
- AT4 Blend: Sitting on a hefty 1943.5 mg, split only five ways, the non-proprietary AT4 BLEND is one of the more impressive natural test boosting formulas we’ve reviewed.
- D-AA-CC: D-Aspartic Acid is our #1 testosterone booster but Grenade AT4 goes with the more premium D-Aspartic Acid Calcium Chelate form.
- Fenurex™ Fenugreek: Google this fenugreek trademark. Only Grenade AT4 comes up, indicating that this is the only formula to carry this extract.

Grenade AT4 supports muscle mass, muscle recovery, muscle pumps, muscles, muscles, & muscles!
A major portion of Grenade AT4’s ad copy is dedicated to its muscle-enhancing benefits, but don’t be fooled: the benefits of healthy T exceed bigger muscles, even with these athlete-geared testosterone booster ingredients. Check it:
Counting up to a total of 1943.5 mg (times two daily = 3,887 mg/day), the AT4 BLEND packs a heavy punch. Plus, the blend does away with the proprietary blend shenanigans, opting instead for full transparency on its ingredient dosages, which look pretty damn good. By order of the Supp Facts listing, the blend’s ingredients include:
Vitamin D3 – Low T? Check your D (as in vitamin D, dogg). Low vitamin D levels contribute to low testosterone levels, a common problem for the far-North and far-South wintertime guys — or generally any guys not getting enough sunlight.
D-Aspartic Acid Calcium Chelate – The #1 booster on our BIG List of T-Boosters, DAA is a powerhouse male ingredient, with some research demonstrating T-boosts of 42% after 12 days of supplementation. And Grenade AT4 goes with the premium grade stuff: D-AA-CC.
Fenurex™ Fenugreek – Unique to this formula (as far as we know), Fenurex is a trademarked extract of fenugreek, a decent free testosterone booster that improves muscle recovery & libido while tinging your sweat with a pungent maple-syrupy aroma.
Passiflora Caerulea – Often used as a source of chrysin, a compound that does enhance testosterone production but only if you inject it directly into the testes. Pretty bad ingredient choice, if you ask us.
Boron (as Boric Acid) – Awesome man mineral, second only to zinc for the manliest mineral title, boron assists with the test:estrogen ratio, increasing free test levels in as short as 7 days.
Aside from Passiflora, all looks purdy good here.
Hormonal support and ANABOLIC DEVASTATION — these are the goals of Grenade AT4, reportedly designed by “the multi award winning sports nutrition specialists at Grenade.”
And after reviewing the anabolic contents of their formula, we’d like to top them off with a few more awards, delivered on-the-spot style:
- The Best5 D-AA-CC Award: For the phat, potent serving of DAA.
- The Best5 Big D Award: For the hefty dose of D3.
- The Best5 Why-Chrysin Award: For the poor choice in Passiflora.
Of course, the latter “award” is not a good award, as is the case with this supplement: it’s mostly good but not entirely. But before we touch on that, we need to first emphasize that good here is much more good than the bad is bad, if that makes sense (it will by the end of this segment).
For instance, Grenade AT4 checks off the important qualifiers for a grade-A supplement: 1) the ingredients are high quality, 2) the dosages are high quantity. AT4 is simply designed to work.
Howevaaa, it stumbles a bit with its use of Passiflora, which doesn’t seem to do much of anything for anything — it’s an all-around worthless ingredient. Plus, the capsule additives are dirty, vitiating this formula with unnecessary colorants & fillers.
Are these points deal-breakers? Absolutely not. But they do significantly get in the way of this formula’s otherwise near perfect review score.
Grenade AT4 Benefits
The positive product points (pointed out on Amazon) of this supplement include:
- Improves Excercise [sic] Performance
- Helps to Increase Muscle Pumps
- Aids Recovery
- Helps to Increase Muscle Mass
In other words: Grenade AT4 amplifies your muscle gains.
While we wouldn’t pin it down as a straight muscle-building anabolic supporter, its DAA + fenugreek combo is a popular anabolic stack among bodybuilders, boosting hormonal activity that not only increases test levels but quickens muscle recovery. Of course, the other beneficial aspects of healthy T apply here as well: sex, libido, energy …so prepare for that as well.
Who Takes It?
Body-builders & -sculptors. Bodybuilders looking to not only increase muscle mass but reduce bodyfat percentage may benefit by Grenade AT4. At least, this seems to be one of the common praises of this product in the customer reviews: speedier & leaner muscle gains.
Any Side Effects?
Grenade AT4 is a safe supplement, both in terms of side effects & legality. None of the customer reviews we’ve read indicated of any side effect risk, so we’re not worried. But as we previously mentioned: prepare for that fenugreek stank.

Final Word on Grenade AT4
Grenade AT4 is a premium-grade supplement formulated by a premium-grade manufacturer, supplying one of the heaviest DAA dosages on the market — ramping it up further by supplying it as the more potent D-AA-CC. Is it the perfect supplement? Nahh, but it’s more than good enough to earn a high Best5 badass rating.
