Review Overview – What does Battle Fuel XT do?
Battle Fuel XT is a product by Muscle Pharm that claims to:
- Increase Strength & Size
- Lower Estrogen
- Contains DAA
That last one is a good sign. D-Aspartic Acid is a high ranking amino acid in testosterone boosting – but it takes a lot more than that to get the job done.
Read on to find out if Battle Fuel XT actually works.
Are the Servings Good?
They’re not the best.
With only 2 servings a day, Battle Fuel XT supplies your body with the nutrients it needs – but it should be happening more frequently.
The best testosterone boosters on the market typically have 3 – 4 doses per day so your hormones have regular top-ups of the nutrients they need to increase testosterone and overall muscle gains.
How are the Ingredients?
The ingredients in Battle Field XT were a really mixed bag.
There were some good choices, but they were overshadowed by the majority appearing in a proprietary blend.
You should always try to avoid proprietary blends.
These are groups of nutrients bundled together and passed off as one ingredient – this leads to you not knowing how much of each nutrient is being used… or how effective it will be.
Here are the most noteworthy ingredients:
600 IU of Vitamin D? Good, but we have some questions…
Vitamin D3 is one of the key nutrients to boosting testosterone, and is actually a hormone – that’s how potent it is.
But there is a difference between D2 and D3 – and it’s major. Battle Fuel XT doesn’t state which it is and that’s a problem for knowing it’s true effectiveness.
On top of that, there’s only 600IUs in a daily serving – which isn’t enough.
There’s no doubting the Magnesium however…
Magnesium is a great mineral for increasing your circulating testosterone.
By inhibiting Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) it allows more testosterone to be available in your bloodstream.
Sex Hormone Binding Globulin is a protein that can bind to up to 60% of your Testosterone stripping it of it’s anabolic potency, making it useless for muscle gains.
The Zinc’s good, but there’s not nearly enough (4mg)…
A big part of naturally boosting your testosterone is through ramping up your production of your body’s Luteinzing Hormone (LH) – this is the precursor to both testosterone and growth hormone.
And Zinc is the mineral to make that happen.
Needed for reactions in the brain to produce LH, you always want to make sure you’re getting enough zinc in your diet.
Unfortunately for Battle Fuel, we don’t think a daily serving of 4mg will be enough to see effective results.
But there’s a great amount of D-Aspartic Acid in this…
D-AA like Zinc, is crucial to improving testosterone levels. Also used in the reactions in the brain to create luteinzing hormone it is a vital part of the T-promoting process.
Ideally you want around 2000 – 3000mg a day of DAA – which this product has (3000mg).
Full List of Ingredients:
As you can see, a lot of the ingredients here have their dosages hidden.
On top of this, things like the L-Carnitine, DIM and the majority of the other ingredients have very little evidence for having effect on your T-levels.
The main ones that will give you benefit here are the Vitamin D, Magnesium, Zinc and D-Aspartic Acid.
However, as we’ve said, we have our reservations about the D and Zinc in this particular supplement.

Muscle Pharm Battle Fuel XT Review Conclusion
Overall this is a good testosterone booster, but there’s some work that needs doing to make it perfect.
For ingredients there are some great choices; Vitamin D (if it is D3), Zinc, Magnesium, D-Aspartic Acid, there’s even Mucuna Pruriens in there which are also effective.
However they’re all overshadowed by a proprietary blend.
Some of these ingredients we don’t know how much we’re getting – and by extension, if it’ll actually work.
There’s also quite a few ingredients in here that don’t raise testosterone, or are unreliable at doing so.
And the servings are okay – but they need work too.
On the whole this T-Booster’s okay, but there are a few out there that are better than it.
