Prime Male vs. Ageless Male is an ugly one… Yet, incredibly satisfying.
It’s a special, perverse form of catharsis, watching a man brutally annihilate another man. However, the experience is even more rewarding when the man receiving the ass-kicking deserves it entirely.
For years, Ageless Male’s scammy manufacturers New Vitality have promised “youth-restoring” T-boosts, selling over 2 million+ bottles to too many unfortunate men who gained nothing but lighter wallets.
Needless to say, we are too happy to pit these sumbitches against the noble and proud Lion T-King: PRIME MALE.
So, without further ado:

Round 1: Formulas
Prime Male more than qualifies for our 2016 Edition Best5 Testosterone Supplements; it’s our #1 Best overall. Meanwhile, Ageless Male probably qualifies for a lawsuit or two…
From the get-go we already know who the winner is… This fight is solely for the record and to prevent any would-be consumers from adding to Ageless Male’s pool of 2 million+ sold bottles of regret.
Prime Male targets Age-Related T-Decline.
Of the 12 ingredients, 10 are effective T-Boosters—including all 5 of our Best5 T-Boosters: D-Aspartic-Acid, Zinc, Mucuna Pruriens, Vitamin D, and Boron.
Overall, the mix of ingredients here is impressive & intelligent, resulting in a unique multiplying T-boosting synergy:
- Magnesium, Nettle, & Boron neutralize T-binding SHGB via 3 different pathways.
- Luteolin & Boron independently inhibit T-killing estrogen.
- K2, Magnesium, & D3 amplify each other’s effects, unlocking 9X+ T-boosting.
Adding even more value to the formula are Korean Red Ginseng & BioPerine® (branded black pepper) which help boost energy/libido and nutrient absorption, respectively.
Ageless Male targets, well… your wallet.
Ageless Male might very well be the worst T-booster of all time.
And it’s not because the formula only has 4 ingredients—if anything, this could have worked in Ageless Male’s benefit by potentially offering a simple, focused, synergistic combo of ingredients.
It’s because Ageless Male does not boost T.
Essentially, Ageless Male’s formula consists of a little bit of Fenugreek (not a T-booster, decent sex-enhancer) and a shitload of filler (calcium carbonate, microcrystalline cellulose, stearic acid, croscarmellose sodium, and on and on…), topped with an inconsequential amount of ZMA (zinc, magnesium, B6).
While ZMA is proven to help with T-levels and male health, Ageless Male screws this up for reasons we’ll discuss in the “Dosages” & “Quality” rounds (SPOILER ALERT: the ZMA is low-dose and bad quality).
All-in-all, Prime Male is a T-booster. Ageless Male is a cash grab.
Round 1… Prime Male Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
To start off this round, both Prime Male and Ageless Male refrain from proprietary blend labeling, which deserves a loud round of applause.
However, hold the hand-claps for the second half of the round, because the first half is dedicated to Ageless Male’s dosages… and guess what: They suck.
The best we can say about Ageless Male is that 2 of its 4 ingredients (Zinc & Fenugreek) are given at half their clinically-supported dosages—meaning that half of the formula is only halfway sufficient. The other half of the formula (Magnesium & B6) is nowhere near adequate.
Meanwhile, the worst we can say about Prime Male is that all of its dosages look good…
How is this fight still going??
Round 2… Prime Male Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
Again, Prime Male conquers this round by doing everything right: The DAA is in high-potent D-AA-CC form, B6 is in “extra strength” P-5-P, Mucuna Pruriens is standardized… The manufacturers care about our T-levels AND digestive tract, filling its formula with highly active, absorbable ingredient forms.
And, again, Ageless Male loses this round by funkin’ it all up: The Zinc is cheap, the Magnesium is cheap, the B6 is CHEAP. 3 of its 4 ingredients SUCK.
Ageless Male’s one point of redemption is its standardized TESTOFEN® Fenugreek, but based on what we learned in the last round on Ageless Male’s dosages, does it even matter?
No… No, it does not.
Round 3… Prime Male Wins.
Round 4: Price
|Prime Male||VS.||Ageless Male|
|1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$69.00||1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$49.95|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.58||Price Per Capsule||$0.83|
|Price Per Serving||$2.30||Price Per Serving||$1.66|
Round 4… Ageless Male Wins.*
*Technically, yes, if we’re looking at bottle-to-bottle pricing, Ageless Male wins. BUT (and this is a big-ass BUT), Ageless Male’s manufacturers New Vitality are notorious scammers: They use autoship tactics, make unauthorized charges, dishonor their satisfaction guarantee, and have straight up dickhead customer service reps… In other words, it’s not Prime Male who ultimately loses this round to Ageless Male. It’s the consumer.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
It’s hard to call this a true fight considering that Ageless Male isn’t even a true T-booster. In actuality, we’re not sure what to call it: Prime Male vs. low-grade sex-enhancer(-maybe?).
What we do know is that, whatever it is, Ageless Male SUCKS.
This “Peter Pan” misconception of ageless T-boosting perfectly fits New Vitality’s juvenile ignorance of basic business decency: Ageless Male is ineffective & unethical, a piss-poor excuse of a supplement and a blatant attack on consumers.
Prime Male, on the other hand, shows that aging isn’t only unavoidable, but it’s absolutely necessary to reach prime male maturity.
The ultimate judgment call on this fight is an easy one…
In the Prime Male vs. Ageless Male fight, the winner by brutal KO is…
