How do you Darwinize?
Do you bar hop?
Do you lift… bro? Or do you Testolyze, the testosterone optimizer sold by Species Evolutionary Nutrition, one of the leading manufacturers in supplementing fitness & survivability.
This world is tough, ripe with meatheads, A-holes, & D-bags. And if you’re not one of these things, then you’re nothing. Is Testolyze the true passage to personhood in this bleak, shallow existence?
Check the review to find out.
Manufactured by Species Evolutionary Nutrition, Testolyze is a “Max Testosterone Optimizer” that has one simple request for you: Evolve. And they seek to help you on the “quest” aspect of this request by addressing 3 important hormones: Testosterone. Dihydrotestosterone. Estrogen. Formula notes:
- D-Aspartic Acid: Forget the Tribulus terrestris. The real reason to get excited for this supplement is the 1,000 mg of DAA, the manliest amino on the market.
- DHT & Estrogen: Aside from supporting testosterone, Testolyze also inhibits 5-alpha reductase & aromatase to prevent excess conversion to DHT & estrogen.
- Non-Proprietary: All of Testolyze’s ingredient dosages are revealed and they’re looking purdy damn gooood.

Testolyze your will to survive & fecundate, Darwin-style.
The Testolyze Supplement Facts immediately impress for a couple reasons that we’ll dive deeper into in the formula analysis discussion. But as far as the ingredients go, the list starts off well, supplying two parts of the ZMA trio:
- Zinc – directly involved in the synthesis of testosterone.
- Vitamin B6 – enhances T as well as mood & cognition.
Testolyze’s website claims Magnesium as a component of the formula as well. We’re not seeing it in the Supplement Facts, which is disappointing. But we can deal with it, given the following ingredients:
The Testosterone Boosters
Rejoice, for the T gods have decided to grant Testolyze with the #1 booster on our BIG List of T-Boosters, the one & only: D-Aspartic Acid (DAA).
If you want to boost testosterone, supplement DAA. (Or the D-AA-CC form, if you really want to boost testosterone.) This amino acid is one of the most effective natural testosterone boosters for its ability to directly enhance test synthesis, increasing overall T levels rather than just “free” T.
However, Testolyze has its “free” T enhancers as well, supplied as:
- Saw Palmetto – blocks DHT conversion for less DHT & more free T.
- Stinging Nettle – inhibits SHBG from binding & neutralizing free T.
Testolyze seems to draw most of its power from Tribulus Terrestris, a hugely popular herb in manufactured T-boosters that doesn’t seem to boost T as much as it simply makes men feel more menly. Ditto for Testolyze’s Muira Puama & Maca.
The Estrogen Reducers
Part 2 of the man pumps: Reducing estrogen.
Testolyze makes a noble effort at the task, relying on the increasingly popular Diindolylmethane (DIM) compound and its less effective analogue Indole-3-Carbinol, two cruciferous vegetable compounds believed to inhibit aromatase, the enzyme responsible for converting T to estrogen.
Resveratrol contributes to the effort with its better researched anti-estrogen efforts, while also adding a healthy antioxidant element to this test booster. Ginger’s antioxidant effects might also contribute to Testolyze’s male hormone support, but this extract & dosage primarily provide digestive benefits, increasing the amount of formula that gets picked up by the body.
Testolyze practices simplicity on the far side of complexity, crafting a diverse, well-designed stack of simple, to-the-point testosterone boosters, DHT blockers, & estrogen reducers. From the get-go, there are two apparent things Testolyze gets right:
- Quality – Standardized herbs, premium vitamins & minerals, etc.
- Quantity – Non-proprietary label, well-dosed ingredients.
The 6 capsule serving size allows for Testolyze to accomplish this latter benefit.
By packing in so many capsules into each bottle as well, Testolyze’s serving size can be split into two daily servings (3 capsules twice daily), ensuring the spread & potency of each ingredient’s effects throughout the day.
However, Testolyze isn’t a perfect testosterone stack.
There remains the question: Are these the best ingredient options available?
The answer: No. Tribulus, Muira Puama, & Maca enhance energy & libido, but not testosterone. Tongkat Ali or Fenugreek would’ve been superior options to any of these herbs. Likewise, Indole-3-Carbinol converts to Diindolylmethane. Why add it?
Even so, Testolyze is a far beyond average booster, delivering kick ass boosters at kick ass quality & quantity for a, well… pretty standard price, actually.
The specific benefit(s) that Testolyze touts:
TESTOLYZE™ helps the body optimize blood testosterone levels while assisting the body in managing estrogen and DHT. Whether you are looking for a natural anabolic edge or want to help your body support and maximize testosterone levels and optimize strength and performance, TESTOLYZE™ will help take your training to the next level.”
Testolyze earns this claim by its diverse mix of testosterone boosters, performance enhancers, and estrogen inhibitors. We recommend Testolyze for muscle growth & physical/sexual performance.
Who Takes It?
GF-Concerned Muscle Heads. For the record, many testosterone boosters qualify as gluten free, yet Species Evolutionary Nutrition wants it to be known: Testolyze is a Gluten Free “Max Testosterone Optimizer”–albeit an FD&C Blue #1 colored GF optimizer.
Any Side Effects?
None reported. Nor are we concerned by any of these ingredients. For the most part, Testolyze checks out on the customer reviews as a safe, effective product. On that note, we don’t see any pressing need to devise a strict on-off cycle for Testolyze.
- Quality. Standardized herbal extracts, premium compounds, potent ginger.
- Quantity. Non-proprietary blends are a wondrous thing these days.
- Diverse. Testosterone, DHT, & estrogen all addressed by Testolyze.
- Inferior Choices. I3C and non-booster sex enhancers. (Y u no Tongkat??)
- FD&C Blue. But it’s a gluten free additive!

Final Word on Testolyze
Species Evolutionary Nutrition works. It works for testosterone, DHT, estrogen. It works for enhancing physical & sexual performance, for enhancing muscle gains. While we wouldn’t rank it as the best option for any of these benefits, it does what it does very well without any of the usual BS chicanery that comes with inferior testosterone products. We say go for it: Darwinize yourself to the next level.
