If given the choice, would you peak now or peak later?
It’s a strange question. We get that.
But it’s a good one. Because we’re all going to peak at some point, right? Then it’s a wavering downhill slope from there… But what if we told you there’s a way to peak more than once? What if we told you there’s a way to peak every day 30 minutes before training or right before bed on Non-Training Days…?
Well, according to Inner Armour Test Peak it’s possible. All you need to do is pop this respected brand’s anabolic testosterone supplement once daily, and you’ll be peaking you’re entire life. Let’s find out if it might be true in this review.
About Inner Armour Test Peak
Inner Armour’s all about fixing you from the inside-out, which fits the M.O. of their designed T-booster Test Peak. Working two-parts as a testosterone-booster & a sports nutrition supplement, Inner Armour Test Peak seems intent on getting the gains that count on the court, field, arena, etc. etc. Formula notes:
- Hydrocaps Technology: One of the leading selling points of Inner Armour’s test booster is its “self-emulsifying phospholipid delivery system” (i.e. potent-ass potency).
- Athlete-Oriented T: With branded Fenugreek & branded ZMA (+ Vitamin D), this T-booster seems specially designed for the athletes.
- Anti-E, Anti-DHT: Test Peak not only increases testosterone, but “balances” other sex hormones–such as estrogen & DHT.

Inner Armour Test Peak upgrades the testosterone potency with Hydrocap technology.
Many formulas can offer the right T-boosters, but most of them still suffer from poor absorption. Inner Armour Test Peak takes its formula to the next level by supporting its ingredients’ bio-availabilities with its BIO SEDS 6D DELIVERY blend.
We’ll explain how that works, then see how the rest of the formula stacks up for testosterone:
BIO SEDS 6D DELIVERY, 1454 mg
This blend is essentially an explanation of Test Peak’s liquid capsule design. It does nothing directly for T, but by using sesame oils & other branded oils, the Hydrocap tech used here helps increase the full delivery of Test Peak’s ingredients into the body.
The theory behind Test Peak’s Hydrocaps absorption-enhancing technology is interesting:
- “Hydrocaps™ patented liquid delivery system pre-solubilizes ingredients in a micronized liquid suspension and then flushes it with a nitrogen bubble to support bioavailability.”
In a nutshell, this ensures that most (if not all) of Test Peak’s bio-constituents not only dissolve appropriately (whereas tablets & capsules in other sports nutrition supplements can remain clumped), but are absorbed appropriately as well by protecting against the denaturing effects of digestion.
Science. Science. Yak-Yak.
The end result is a more potent T-booster, especially for Test Peak’s intended anabolic gains.
Mytosterone, 400 mg
The name(s) of the game(s) here:
Estradiol & DHT balance. i.e. inhibiting conversion of testosterone to estrogen and/or DHT via aromatase & 5-α reductase enzymes.
And for the most part, Mytosterone seems to accomplish that inhibition based on a study of 42 healthy men aged 37 – 70 years. Yet, while most men would agree that inhibiting the conversion of testosterone to estrogen is a good thing, the idea of DHT-inhibitors has been a point of increasing contention.
For one: DHT is a manlier hormone than T, operating on more bodily systems than T.
For two: It’s hard to gauge whether DHT levels are in or out of whack.
In general, we don’t recommend funking around with DHT until recommended by a physician… Having said that, we’re fairly confident that Mytosterone is a safe DHT blocker and not going to do too much damage, considering its low reports of side effect.
Testofen (Fenugreek), 300 mg
Inner Armour Test Peak claims that Testofen increases testosterone by 98%, essentially doubling your T supply.
They seem to be basing this claim on Testofen’s ability to inhibit sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), which is responsible for binding & deactivating upwards of 98-99% of total test supply.
While Testofen does seem capable in boosting “free” testosterone levels, we feel somewhat tricked by this “Clinically suggested to promote free testosterone levels by 98%” claim. Not only is that not true, but the math potentially underlying Test Peak’s thought process doesn’t even add up.
Regardless, Testofen is a qualified Test booster, and one of the more evidence-based herbs for enhancing performance and anabolic muscle mass gains.
Z-3D (Strength & Power Matrix), 151 mg
They call it Z-3D.
What it actually is: ZMA + Vitamin D.
Regardless of how you want to spell it, these are 4 awesome vitamins & minerals that carve out even more of a sports nutritional edge to this T-booster (although the Magnesium dosage is absurdly low). Zinc & Vitamin D in particular are ballsy compounds integral to synthesizing T. Magnesium & B6 also seem linked to testosterone production and should be supplemented by every sweaty athlete out there at risk of vitamin & mineral deficiency (odds are that includes you).
Activated Boron, 50 mg
Another powerful testosterone boosting mineral, Boron is perhaps one of the most overlooked ingredients that holds major boosting power with such small dosages. Whereas some formulas stack up 3000 mg+ of BIG-time boosters such as D-Aspartic Acid, others need only 50 – 100 mg Boron for decent boosts (although the best male formulas combine DAA & Boron).
Boron is an especially smart choice here for the minerals potentiation of Magnesium & Vitamin D (found in the Z-3D stack). Combined, these minerals & vitamin seem to help test status by inhibiting SHBG & estrogens while promoting T-synthesis.
Inner Armour Test Peak SDG 40, 2.5 mg
Sure, why not.
Many are quick to shoot down flaxseed for its heavy phytoestrogen content, afraid that it’ll decrease important aspects of male health—most notably testosterone & libido. Nothing in the research seems to back these fears.
Au contraire, mon ami – According to a bull study, Flaxseed Oil supplementation may actually help male reproductive health. Frickin’ bulls, man! It doesn’t get much manlier than that, does it?
Will Test Peak double your Test levels?
Hard to say until we see some research on the entire formula (instead of standalone ingredients).
Okay, then will Inner Armour Test Peak at least boost T?
Yes. With that premium branded Fenugreek (Testofen) and 3 of our Top 5 T-Boosters (Zinc, Vitamin D, Boron), it’s safe to say that Test Peak has the right stuff to upgrade your testosterone status. Judging by these T-boosters in particular, Inner Armour Test Peak seems particularly geared towards the younger athletes—which is further evidenced by the higher amount of positive reviews coming from younger doods versus older gents.
One reason for this: Being active means being sweaty. And being sweaty means losing significant amounts of T-boosting minerals, such as Zinc & Magnesium. This is why ZMA is always popular in sports nutrition products. The B6, Boron, & D3 only reinforce the T-boosts here.
Another reason: While Testofen may help older men achieve higher levels of “free” testosterone, it seems to be more of an ergogenic aid & libido enhancer—making it more suitable for the younger T-boosters who (let’s face it) don’t really need more testosterone. Key word: need.
The rest of the formula is fairly unique—Mytosterone, SDG 40—and may give this test booster an edge over others of the similar design. Yet, our one bugaboo here: The emphasis on DHT inhibition.
We already have DHT decreases with Fenugreek, so we’re not sure if Mytosterone’s Saw Palmetto is all that necessary. As we already mentioned, DHT is more important than testosterone for all-around male functioning. The main organ where T supersedes DHT is skeletal muscle, which is why DHT-blockers are so appealing.
It’s doubtful that you’re going to throw your DHT out of whack with this formula, but we’d advise steering clear from additional DHT-funkers while taking supplements like Inner Armour Test Peak.
Otherwise, this is an all-around impressive athlete-driven, anabolic tartgeted formula, with generally good reviews, to boot.
Inner Armour Test Peak Benefits
Let’s review the 6 main benefits laid out by Test Peak’s manufacturers:
- Support Testosterone Levels
- Promote a Healthy Estradiol Balance
- Support DHT Balance
- Increase Strength
- Support Recovery
- Promote Muscle Building
Granted, the last 3 benefits are essentially the sub-benefits of the first 3 benefits, but whhhatever. We get what they’re saying. It’s a T-booster that doubles as an anabolic mass gainer.
At the least, the last 3 benefits are worth noting considering that the particular T-boosts utilized in this product are geared towards younger bodybuilding men—as opposed to older men looking to simply replenish their naturally lowered testosterone levels.
Who Takes It?
Athletic Young Doods. Your 20-something bodybuilding guy, who is into sports nutrition supplements and knows his stuff. That seems to be the intended demographic of this T-booster. Plus, Test Peak takes the special effort of ensuring its batches are Banned Substance Free, so all the more reason for strength-gaining athletes to take Test Peak.
Any Side Effects?
Little to no reports. For the most part, product side effects may rarely include:
- Greasy Skin
- Slight Nausea
But these complaints are rare & mild. Also, if you didn’t know, Fenugreek — found in some of the more popular test booster products — sometimes gives off a “maple-syrupy” smell in your urine & sweat, so have fun with that.
Inner Armour Test Peak Summary
- Well-Researched. For a unique formula, Test Peak stays surprisingly grounded.
- Quality Ingredients. A lot of ®s and ™s on these Supp Facts, what good products use
- Hydrocaps Tech. Raises the bar on this T-booster almost to MEGA-BOOST levels.
- Banned Substance Free. An athletic formula that athletes can actually take.
- Good for stacking. Inner Armour BCAA Peak + Test Peak looks good for gains.
- DHT Inhibition. Not sure if this is an entirely good thing.
- Vitamin/Mineral Quality. The ZMA trio could be upgraded to better forms.
- Few Complaints. Not a lot, but it’s still our job to report it, right??
Pricing & Buying Info

Final Word on Inner Armour Test Peak
Inner Armour Test Peak is an anabolic-customized test booster product. It has what you need for strength, muscle, & performance gains (as well as man-tit reductions, if it’s needed–or, more importantly, wanted). We can’t necessarily recommend Test Peak to older gents looking to restore their T. But for men looking for androgen-driven anabolic gains, Test Peak is one of the more impressive testosterone supplements on the market.
