Review Overview – What does NutritionGen’s ULTRA-MAX do?
ULTRA-MAX is a testosterone booster brought to us by the guys at NutritionGen.
It’s claimed to help promote:
- Energy Levels
- Muscle Growth
- Workout Intensity
All by raising your testosterone – but how well does it do this?
We’ve taken a closer look at the studies behind what goes into ULTRA-MAX and we’ve been rather surprised with the results… and not in a good way.
Take a look:
How are the servings?
With only one serving a day, there’s only so much benefit you can expect to get out of this testosterone booster. Your body can only absorb so much at a time – the rest ends up wasted.
What you should be looking for:
Ideally you want a testosterone booster that has around 3 – 4 servings per day. This ensures that your body gets a constant supply of the nutrients you need and allows for your testosterone levels to be constantly on the rise.

What about the ingredients in ULTRA-MAX?
Although there are a lot of ingredients in this product, they do not do their best to promote testosterone levels. There are only 2 ingredients in this supplement that have any real effect.
Check it out:
Magnesium – 200mg
Tribulus Terrestris – 750mg
Chrysin – 75mg
Horny Goat Weed – 50mg
Longjack – 50mg
Saw Palmetto Berries – 50mg
Hawthorn Berries – 50mg
Cissus Quadrangularis – 50mg
The Magenesium is a good start for free testosterone…
This is one of the better minerals for increasing available testosterone in your blood stream.
It works by reducing the amount of Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) in your blood stream (which binds to testosterone and ruins it’s anabolic potency) allowing more testosterone to circulate.
The Tribulus however, isn’t…
Originally thought to help increase testosterone, and marketed as such for the last few years. The science behind Tribulus Terrestris isn’t actually that great.
It has never been seen to raise testosterone, however, it has been shown in some cases to raise libido – not exactly what we’re looking for here.
And the Chrysin isn’t much better…
Unfortunately there is only one study out there that shows Chrysin raises testosterone. Which involved the nutrient being injected directly into the testes – all attempts with oral supplementation have failed.
It won’t have much of an impact here.
Saw Palmetto is another one that works – but doesn’t in the way we want it to…
This nutrient has been heavily linked to increasing overall prostate health. In some cases it has even been seen to help reduce enlarged prostates to some degree.
However it is not linked to boosting testosterone.
The Horny Goat Weed and Longjack both have the same minor effects…
Both of these nutrients have been thought to raise testosterone at one time or another, unfortunately there has been no evidence to back up either of them.
There are a handful of studies for each that show that they may help boost libido – but not boost testosterone.
And Cissus Quadrangularis may help with joints…
Again, this is another nutrient that is not linked to boosting testosterone. The best you’ll get out of this ingredients is minor anti-inflammatory effect on joints.
The Zinc is a far better option…
This is mineral will actually help produce testosterone. Being used for several hormonal reactions in the brain, Zinc helps improve Luteinzing Hormone (LH) which is the precursor to both testosterone and growth hormone.
Ingredients Bottom Line
Overall the nutrient profile in ULTRA-MAX are by no means the best we’ve seen. The problem is that the only effective ingredients are the zinc and the magnesium. The rest of this Testosterone Booster only seems to provide minor benefits to your libido.
This is definitely not the best supplement out there for Testosterone. By far.

There have been no side effects reported with ULTRA-MAX.
ULTRA-MAX Review Conclusion
On the whole this is a pretty ineffective T-Booster.
The only positives here is that it contains Zinc and Magnesium, but the other nutrients used provide no help whatsoever. Core ingredients like Vitamin D3 and D-Aspartic Acid are missing and this makes all the difference.
The main thing this T-Booster will do is give minor support to your libido – but that’s about it.
The servings are a concern as well, with only one a day not being enough to ensure that constant rise in testosterone levels.
