TEST1FY is a Natural Testosterone Booster manufactured by Olympus Labs. It helps optimize your natural testosterone levels, which helps encourage muscle growth and fat loss.
Quick SummaryDuring my run with Test1fy I had multiple clear indicators that my testosterone levels were heightened. I saw big improvements in my weights on compound lifts and was very satisfied with both the physical and mental effects of this product.
IntroductionPart 2 of my Olympus Labs stack. The results I'll be discussing were the combined effect of taking massacr3 and test1fy side by side. The two supplements complement each other by design, with massacr3 essentially providing the blueprint and test1fy providing the materials. It's up to you to do the construction!
Based on my research on the ingredients listed and the reviews from my fellow TROOPers, I believe I can effectively separate the effectiveness of both products but it should be noted that some of the improvements I noticed were certainly a result of the combo since there is some overlap in their intended use.
While taking this I stuck to a 4-5 day/wk rotation with little to no cardio included, except for shortened rest periods between sets. The typical rotation was lower body, pull day/back, push day/chest, arms/shoulders, and a full body day if the fifth day happened at all. Normally I do a compound movement like cleans, snatchs, squats, or deadlifts to start every workout, regardless of the main focus of the lift afterwards.
Since we're looking at a test booster that can be heavily affected by age, weight, and body composition, I'll add that I'm 31, about 220lbs, with lean composition around 8-12%.
Ingredient ProfileI appreciate that Olympus Labs used a transparent label and trademarked ingredients when formulating and packaging test1fy.
Anacyclus Pyrethrum Extract (3.2g) - This is a whopping dose of an ingredient that has shown great promise for testosterone boosting in lab studies, mostly on rats. If you look at the studies listed on Examine.com, you'll see that the high-end recommended dose is 2.5g for a 250lb person. So, with this product I'm exceeding that recommended dose significantly while also weighing about 30lbs less than the recommended weight. This concerned me a bit at first because side effects of this ingredient can include headaches and canker sores, both of which I'm prone to, but at no point did I experience either one. Studies on rats have also shown increasing effectiveness through long cycles of taking this ingredient, as opposed to ingredients like D-Aspartic Acid which peak and fall off after 12-14 days then return to baseline. I'd say I noticed that building effectiveness in my run with it as well.
KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract (675mg) - Another whopping dose and a trademarked version of this ingredient, which is known to help reduce cortisol (stress) levels, improve blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, and increase power output.
LJ100 (100mg) - This is not as big a dose, about 50% of what you'd want to take if using as a standalone ingredient, but perfect for the intent here. I believe this was included mainly for its libido boosting properties as well as it's potential to further reduce cortisol levels and increase subjective well-being.
Pine Bark Extract (103mg) - standard dose; athletes supplementing with pine bark extract have exhibited reduced symptoms of fatigue. It is also effective for reducing inflammation and erectile dysfunction. These all lead to it pairing nicely with the other ingredients on the panel.
Mucuna Pruriens P.E. (500mg) - This is a pre-pre-cursor to the feel-good hormone Dopamine. It isn't a massive dose, but should be effective combined with the other ingredients.
Boron (6mg) - This is regularly touted to be a testosterone booster as well. In my experience I've never found it to be terribly effective, but it seems to be in everything. Studies have shown limited effectiveness as well.
Bioperine (10mg) - This helps with absorption of the ingredients.
Overall this ingredient panel is fantastic and well-rounded. You have some great dosages to start, and everything complements each other well. I'd expect noticeable testosterone increases from the Anacyclus Pyrethrum as well as a big libido boost, whereas everything accompanying it should aid in that libido boost further while also improving mood and focus.
This did have a bit of a spicy/earthy taste to it despite being a pill, but hardly noticeable and not bad either.
Dosing might be offensive to some. You need to take 8 rather large pills daily. I took them each day with a big lunch packed with carbs and protein.
EffectivenessI want to re-state that I used this product in tandem with massacr3 and would encourage anyone considering this to also do the same. They really worked well together and provided results that would be similar to a SARM or PH, in my opinion.
The claims made my Olympus Labs on the bottle are as follows:
- Increase Lean Muscle Mass: (YES) I noticed during my run that my waistline leaned out quite a bit. I had a few people mention to me that I looked thin and jacked by week 2. It's a nice compliment to receive but I had ways of noticing it myself. I had to cinch my belt another notch tighter, for instance. Normally if you're doing that you're sacrificing gains in the gym, but that wasn't at all the case. I had massive increases in weight on my deadlifts, snatches, and cleans. I also noticed improved muscle tone throughout my entire body and longer lasting pumps. My muscles felt more dense and I felt less fatigued throughout my workouts.
- Increase Testosterone Levels: (YES) Unfortunately, there are some crappy things that you can look for to tell if a test booster is working. One of them is pimples. I don't usually get many pimples but I grew a few planetary sized ones during my cycle. One popped up on my shoulder blade, another on my forehead, both around weeks 3 and 4. They were large and painful, but went away after treating them for a few days without ever becoming whiteheads. I also noticed that my forehead was more oily than normal and that I had a few black heads and little tiny pimples throughout most of the cycle. I was also a little rage-y, but that's harder to quantify since those people or things shouldn't have pissed me off in the first place!! That also seemed to last a week or so after my run (see my spaz on DMF in the Troop Chat).
- Decrease Estrogen Levels: (YES) For me this is noticeable by water retention mainly, of which I had none. As mentioned earlier, my body just leaned out significantly. I didn't seem to be retaining any water in my waist or love handles, and my wedding ring was a little looser on my finger.
- Improve Levels of Stress: (YES) Throughout my cycle I felt amazing. I had a great alpha-male mentality from the end of the first week to the end of the bottle. Not surprising considering the number of ingredients geared towards this effect. Things at work never overwhelmed me, even when dealing with some crazy situations that could've turned out to be really bad and affect a lot of people. I seemed to maintain my cool easier and was more composed and relaxed when dealing with clients and execs.
Really, really impressed with this one from top to bottom.
ValueThe best price I found for this was at BestPriceNutrition.com for $40.49 while using a priceplow 10% off coupon. The normal price ranges from $45.99 to $69.99. I find this to be a great value anywhere from $45 down. There are less expensive test boosters available on the market, but few that are even close to as effective.
ConclusionOverall, this is a stack and a standalone product I'd recommend to anyone on the market and one that I DEFINITELY plan to run again myself. It was the most effective NTB stack I've used to-date and can't imagine getting better results from anything legal. Big thanks to OL for their participation here and for letting me give it a shot. If you're reading this and on the fence about whether to buy... don't be. Pull the trigger and go!
IntroductionI would like to thank Olympus Labs once again for giving me another opportunity to review one of their supplements. This time its Test1fy a natural testosterone booster that helps optimize test production. I have a low T score for my age so I've tried & reviewed many other test boosters in the past. The combination of ingredients and dosages drew me to give this product a review. I stacked Test1fy with another Olympus Labs supplement - Massacre to give me a solid lean bulk stack.
Ingredient ProfileThe ingredient profile is transparent and features six main test boosting ingredients. Ingredients in order:
Vitamin D 3,332 IU
Anacyclus Pyrethrum Extract (Root) 3,200mg - An Aphrodisiac herb widely used in Ayurveda to improve vitality: Research has shown this ingredient to be a solid libido booster. http://www.scipharm.at/download.asp?id=346
KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract 675mg - Another Ayurvedic herb: Helps improve semen quality by increasing serum levels of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) all while reducing cortisol levels.
LJ100 100mg - Verified 100:1 standardization of Longjack - Used to increase male virility. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11693547
Pine Bark Extract 103mg - Used as an AI Inhibitor - helping prevent testosterone from turning into estrogen.
Mucuna Pruriens P.E. 500mg - Cortisol reducer all while increasing the luteinizing hormone and t levels. https://www.fertstert.org/article/S0015-0282%2808%2903935-6/fulltext
Boron (from Albion boroganic glycine) 6mg - Boron impacts the body's usage of estrogen/testosterone. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4712861/
Bioperine 10mg - Absorption Optimizer
Taste/Mixability/DosingDosing - One serving (8) capsules taken with largest meal of the day - for me that was dinner.
EffectivenessIn terms of effectiveness Test1fy was one of the better natural t boosters I've taken. Now some effects could coincide with the stack of Massacr3 however I'm confident that even without that addition I'd get the same effectiveness in these areas: First n Foremost the big effect was the Alpha Male Mentality. My confidence sky rocketed in/out of the gym. Going into a workout I knew I was going to hit every rep n/ set with more in the tank. Along that note my t levels did increase - noticeable from increased acne - sexual prowess/more erections something my wife noticed. Next was increased strength/muscle now some of this could be from the stack I was using but I did set PRs in the Big 3 lifts. I was able to go heavier with accessory lifts which were meant for more for muscle mass. So I got the best of both worlds from Test1fy.
ValueThe cheapest value I could find was at bestpricenutrition.com for $44.99: Each bottle contains 240 capsules - 8 capsules per serving - 30 total servings. At a price of around $1.50 per serving this is comparable to similar t boosting supplements. I'd have no problem paying this price but if you do some searching I'm sure you can find a deal or two down the road.
Side EffectsIncreased Acne but you'r going to get that with an effective test booster
ConclusionIn conclusion Olympus Labs Test1fy is a solid top notch test booster. With proven/backed ingredients you'll definitely see results... just make sure your diet & training are in check first before using any supplement. I recommend this product if your on the lookout for a quality test booster - just be on the lookout for deals to get a lower price. Thanks again to Olympus Labs for participating in the SR TROOP Program.
Quick SummaryThis product definitely gives you the signs of increased testosterone. It may give you acne though.
IntroductionFirst I would like to thank Olympus labs for participating in the troopers. While on this I did not get my testosterone checked so what I saw will be how I felt while on this. Since it claims to help with joints I did not take any joint products during my run of this.
Ingredient ProfileVitamin D (as D3 Cholecalciferol) 3,332 IU 833%
Anacyclus Pyrethrum (root) 3200mg **
KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract (Made with certified organic ashwagandha) (Withania somnifera) (root) (standardized to minimum 5% total withanolides) 675mg **
LJ100 Standardized Eurycoma Longifolia extract (40% Glycosaponins, 28% Bioactive Eurypeptides, 30% Polysaccharides, 0.8% Eurycomanone) 100mg **
Abieta-8, 11, 13-trien-18-oic acid min. 95% purity by HPLC) 103mg **
Pine bark extract 103mg
Mucuna prurient P.E. 500mg
Anacyclus Pyrethrum: an aphrodisiac that increases testosterone luteinizing hormone and helps to improve libido. Reported effects include increased vascularity, hunger and muscle definition.
KSM-66: Also known as Ashwagandha, this ingredient is an adaptogen which means it helps you deal with anxiety. Additionally, it has been shown to improve semen quality by increasing serum levels of Testosterone and Luteinizing Hormone (LH), while reducing levels of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Ashwagandha also helps to reduce levels of cortisol in the body, a hormone causes the loss of muscle and increases in fat.
LJ100: A patented extract developed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for the treatment of sexual dysfunction and male fertility, Tongkat Ali supports increased sex drive through multiple pathways, including through the influence of free testosterone sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and aromatase activity. SHBG is a protein which inhibits the circulation of your free testosterone by binding it up and making it unavailable - Tongkat Ali has been suggested to impact SHBG based on clinical studies. Studies have also shown it to have anti-aromatase properties similar to Formestane, which leads to decreased estrogen and increased testosterone
Vitamin D3: Vitamin D3 is essential for muscle health in that low levels of Vitamin D3 promote decreased protein synthesis, decreased strength, weakness, and muscle wasting. Additionally, deficiencies in Vitamin D3 lead to fatty muscles which has a negative effect on strength and power.
Abieta-8,11,13-trien-18-oic acid: Commonly known as Dehydroabietic Acid (DHAA). Studies suggest that this powerful ingredient has anti-estrogen effects. It also boosts the production of adiponectin, a protein hormone that helps supports weight loss. As a matter of fact, lowered levels of adiponectin correlate with obesity. Therefore, this ingredient may help enhance body composition while helping decrease estrogen.
Mucuna Pruriens: This ingredient acts as a precursor to Dopamine. Dopamine is thought to be involved in the mental processes like motivation, mood, attention, memory, voluntary muscular movement, and learning. Additionally, research suggests that L-Dopa supports lean muscle growth and normal hormone levels in men and women
Taste/Mixability/DosingPills so no taste or mixability
It says take 8 capsules with largest meal. What I did was take 8 pills with dinner.
EffectivenessWhile on this I did not get an increase in mass but my strength did increase but it was little. In 2 weeks I started to feel this. My reps increased on everything I did. I never had my libido go this high. It was hard to keep the erections from this hidden while in the gym. My fat loss was not too much but I did lose 4 pounds of fat without changing my diet. My joints felt smooth but would still crack and ache.
ValueYou can get it for $50 from a1supplements.com which is $0.21 a pill or $1.67 a serving. I think it is well worth the price considering how it makes you feel.
Side EffectsI got acne on my face and shoulders.
ConclusionThis is my favorite natural test booster as of right now. I would definitely recommend to someone looking for a test booster that works.
IntroductionBack at it again on my experience with Olympus Labs Test1fy. Being a big fan of Olympus products, I had to give this a go and I was NOT disappointed. I ran this for 8 weeks just finished up about a week ago. What attracted me to give Test1fy a try is that it features Anacyclus Pyrethrum, which I never used so, why not give it a go. Glas I did, I was rather pleased with the results. I ran this with Olympus Kingsguard and Optimen Multi.
Ingredient ProfileOlympus Labs (OL) has broken down the ingredients into 5 phases, I guess to explain what the ingredients do, who knows. OL has put in a generous 3332mg of Vitamin D, to kick things off, then moves into the phases. And away we go
All Mechanism Increase:
3200mg Anacyclus Pyrethrum
675mg KSM-66 Ashwagandha
100mg LJ100 Euyrcoma Longifolia
103mg Abieta-8,11,13-trien-18-oic acid
500mg Macuna Puriens
500mg Calcium Fructoborate
From my research and experience with Test1fy, OL has pretty much covered all the basics, elevating T levels, estrogen control, cortisol control, and even prolactin protection.
Taste/Mixability/DosingTest1fy is in capsule form. The capsules are not too big, go down fairly easy, and are red & white. Nice touch. The downside on the dosing, at least for me, it's the 8, yes I said 8 capsules a day. The recommend 4 in the morning and four 8 hours later. Now this is not that big of a deal but it does make it difficult when out an about.
EffectivenessThis is where Test1fy totally excels. It is effective like crazy! Now I did not get blood work but I had all the tell tale signs of increased T. Muscle fullness, increased strength, alpha male, skyrocketing libido, massive, zipper busting erections, fat loss, acne all of it. In the gym, I was able increase weight and reps on nearly everything. I truly felt like a God both in the gym and in the bedroom.
ValueI picked up 2 bottles of Test1fy for $49 each on Amazon. Price is about the same everywhere else I looked. I've thought a lot about the value, since I feel $49 is a bit pricey, but it's not too pricey for something that works. So that being said, Test1fy is an excellent value for what you're getting.
Side EffectsThe biggest side I experienced was the acne, mostly on my shoulders and back and while annoying it was a sign for me that it was working. Besides that, I did have a little trouble sleeping in the beginning of my run, but that went away within a week or so. While, at my age, I don't consider this a side effect was the insatiable libido. I was never satisfied for nearly the entire run, however the last week or so, It seemed like the Abieta was starting to shut me down a bit.
ConclusionWell, what more can I say, I was completely satisfied with Test1fy and felt it delivered everything it promised and more. I have to say I really like OL products. They do not skimp on quality or quantity as everything was dosed in the recommended quantities and the all the ingredients are top quality. I highly recommend this product and think most will be pleased with the results. I wouldn't run it anymore more or less than 8 weeks.
Side note: I can't tell you what a pain in the rear is was typing "Test1fy" what that 1 in there. Why???
