Papa bless for Sheer TEST for not wasting our time.
If you think reviewing supplements is all fun & candy, think again: It’s not.
The supplement market, let alone the test booster market, is full of bogus, money-grubbing formulas that are nothing less than a waste of our time & nothing more than 21st c. snake oil. Which is why we’re overjoyed to come across a formula like Sheer TEST that provides exactly what it advertised: Sheer testosterone.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Enough words. Let’s get on with this sheer review.
About Sheer TEST
Sheer Strength Labs’ test booster as one thing on its mind: Testosterone. It’s Sheer TEST, brought to us by sheer test boosters that only support sheer testosterone. And boners, but that’s sort of the whole point, right? Formula notes:
- D-Aspartic Acid: The leading T-booster in this stack is one of the best, if not the best natural booster for enhancing total testosterone levels.
- Plain Powders: Sheer TEST impresses with its herbal selection, yet drops the ball on their collective potency & quality.
- Affordable: With an average $1.20 per pop, Sheer TEST qualifies as a legitimate budget stack for the long-run.

Sheer Test: Testosterone boosters, testosterone boosters, more testosterone boosters, & ginkgo biloba.
Sheer TEST is no misnomer: This supplement gets straight to the point. That point being boosting testosterone, baby–and this is first evidenced by the product’s vitamins & minerals:
- Vitamin D – Hefty dose of B5 favorite: Low D, No T!
- Magnesium – Decent dose, yet we’d like to know the Mg form.
- Zinc – Large dose, double the full % DV, but again: What’s the form?
Not too shabby, nearly covering the ZMA angle (only thing missing: Vitamin B6). But these are only the appetizers. The real party is down below:
The Tee Boosters
D-Aspartic Acid, 650 mg
The #1 top dogg on our BIG List of T-Boosters: D-Aspartic Acid (DAA).
Sitting on a, eh, well, pretty good 650 mg (the best boosters more than double this dosage), Sheer TEST’s DAA is the appropriate star ingredient for increasing testosterone levels, with research demonstrating boosted T-levels by 42% in only 12 days.
Fadogia Agrestis, 500 mg
Pro-erectile herb grown in Nigeria, with potential to increase testosterone in rats. But in humans? The clinical research isn’t quite there yet. What’s more: Fadogia agrestis comes with a somewhat negative reputation for its possible increase in lipid peroxidation, a toxic bio-effect on cell membranes & the liver.
Fenugreek, 500 mg
DAA signals for increased total test levels. Fenugreek covers the free T angle by inhibiting two important proteins in the body:
- SHBG – Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, responsible for T deactivation
- 5-α reductase – Enzyme, responsible for conversion of T to DHT
The cumulative result being more free T levels and less DHT, potentially protecting the prostate in cases of excess T levels. Quick side note: Fenugreek also functions as a pretty potent performance & sex enhancer, so have fun with that.
Eurycoma Longifolia, 200 mg
Better known by its moniker “Stick of Man” (or Tongkat Ali), Eurycoma longifolia serves a number of male healthy functions: Increases free T, reduces cortisol, enhances sex & libido… It simply bolsters the stick of man, baby, and possibly the stick of women as well, er something like that.
Ginkgo Biloba Extract, 120 mg
There’s that magic word we’ve been looking for: “Extract.”
The first advertised extract, and we’ve just reached the final herb in the formula. Would help if Sheer TEST mentioned the content of this extract, but we’ll take it nonetheless. Ginkgo Biloba is as old as time itself, reportedly dating back to the dinosaur days. And throughout time it’s possessed the same benefits: Improved circulation throughout the brain & body; Enhanced nootropic function (e.g. working memory). Essentially, Ginkgo gives Sheer TEST a nootropic PWO edge.
With exception to one ingredient, Sheer TEST represents the formula we’d create if given an all-access pass to a full, comprehensive library of the natural world’s plants & compounds. The only differences we’d make would be:
- Remove the Fadogia Agrestis (substitute with Mucuna?)
- Increase the herbal dosages across-the-board
And there you go: The all-natural test boosting performance enhancer.
Just sheer testosterone, nothing else. WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED??
However, as a manufactured supplement, Sheer TEST could use a few improvements to make its capsule-sharing herbs more potent, the main improvement being their quality: Only Ginkgo Biloba comes in extract form. Fadogia, Fenugreek, & Tongkat all have decent dosages, but come in plain, powder form. That’s not potent enough for a capsulated supplement.
Furthermore, the capsules themselves are coated in magnesium stearate, a killer to nutrient absorption, and filled with brown rice flour, a needless, cheap filler that should be replaced with more testosterone boosting action.
Sheer TEST Benefits
The advertised benefits of this “NATURAL TEST SUPPORT” supplement include:
- ENHANCED LIBIDO & DRIVE
- INCREASED MUSCLE MASS
- ENHANCED PERFORMANCE
No objections from us. These are fairly conservative claims for a fairly conservative testosterone booster, essentially covering the basics of balanced T levels. Although, the Fenugreek & Tongkat Ali are unique in their support of anabolic muscle gains, particularly with regards to Tongkat’s anti-stress hormone effect.
Who Takes It?
Sheer Men. No shiny B.S. with this supplement. No added gimmicks or doodads. No damn kids riding their skateboards on the sidewalk!! Sheer TEST is sheerly about sheer testosterone. And everything that comes with it.
Any Side Effects?
None reported. Despite the concern surrounding Fadogia, we wouldn’t expect any acute adverse effects with Sheer TEST–although, it’s something to consider if you’re supplementing this product for the long run. At the moment, most of the customer reviews are positive, particularly for older men who, we presume, are enjoying that manly DAA boost.
Sheer TEST Summary
- Well-Crafted. Sheer TEST gets straight to the point with these ingredients.
- Decent Dosages. Not the best but better than the average booster.
- Affordable. Reasonably priced for a natural, DAA-powered booster.
- Low Quality. Herbal extracts vastly outperform plain powders in supplements.
- Obscure Facts. What are the mineral forms? Ginkgo’s extract?
- Junk Additives. Magnesium stearate helps the manufacturers, not the consumer.
Pricing & Buying Info
- 1 Bottle (1 month): $35.97
- Available online and in retail stores
Final Word on Sheer TEST
Sheer TEST isn’t the sheer best (wah-wahhh) but it is a straightforward test booster that resonates with our attraction to simplicity. Most supplements on the market are bogus for seemingly two reasons: A) They’re concocted by scam artists, or B) They’re failed experiments. Bless those experimenters’ hearts. But Sheer TEST says eff that, we’re sticking with what works. We dig that.
