Testosterone is a popular topic in men’s health these days. It’s often associated with a man’s vigor and overall health, thanks to its relationships with numerous bodily functions like stress management, muscle growth and strength, bone mass, and production of red blood cells and sperm cells.
These relationships have also led to testosterone being portrayed by many companies and individuals as something most, if not all, men would want to supplement in order to solve all kinds of male wellness concerns ranging from low energy and low libido to muscle building and weight management.
The truth is that testosterone on its own is not something most men ever need to supplement directly. Despite the popularity of testosterone therapy and various testosterone booster products, in most situations, the best approach for a man is not to add more testosterone to his body from the outside but to review his overall health and hormone balance. Is his body supporting the normal, healthy levels of testosterone and related hormones for his age?
Merely adding more testosterone to your body without accounting for the natural balance of hormones will lead to more health problems than not.
This is a pillar of our approach when formulating Genius Test, our own take on the “testosterone booster”. Genius Test does not directly add testosterone to your body. Instead, it provides ingredients selected to support the various functions of the body that contribute to daily testosterone levels, cortisol levels, estrogen levels, and more.
The result is a supplement that is primarily for male health optimization without carrying the same kinds of safety risks and unrealistic expectations common to many testosterone boosters out in the world today.
Ingredients for Male Optimization
The primary goal of Genius Test is to support the body’s natural balance of hormones like testosterone, cortisol, and estrogen so that they are maintained at levels that are appropriate for the individual’s overall wellness. However, our chosen ingredients can also individually benefit many of the same aspects of male health that relate to common testosterone concerns like energy, libido, and stress.
Genius Test features seven main ingredients that tackle male health from multiple angles. We explore each of them in detail below:
Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that has a broad range of psychological and physiological benefits. This is due to its phytochemical density, particularly its withanolides constituents. It is notable for its impact on cortisol, the hormone released when the body is stressed, which becomes inversely correlated to testosterone (cortisol spikes and testosterone drops). Ashwagandha can support the body’s production and regulation of testosterone and cortisol levels, favorable to overall stress response and energy.
KSM-66® Ashwagandha is our chosen extract for inclusion in Genius Test. It retains a higher withanolides amount than most other ashwagandha extracts and products found on the market, making it one of the highest quality in the world.
PrimaVie® is a clinically studied, highly purified form of shilajit. Shilajit is a natural substance created over centuries from the decomposition of plants. It is typically found in the rocks of the Himalayas. It is highly mineral-dense and contains fulvic acid, making it a natural antioxidant, energy booster, and supporter of the brain and immune system. Notably, it has been shown in studies to support increases in free testosterone levels in men, exercise endurance, and improve the bioavailability of CoQ10.
Fenugreek is a popular herb with a long tradition in India and East Asia, often appearing as a spice in cuisine. Studies have found that fenugreek appears to boost testosterone and may also increase libido. Fenugreek may also assist with insulin function and overall blood sugar balance.
Quercetin is a natural pigment found in many fruits and vegetables. It is an antioxidant and can support the body's inflammation response and blood pressure by combatting free radicals.
3,3’-Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a natural substance created when the body breaks down another compound (indole-3-carbinol), which is abundant in vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and kale. DIM may help with the metabolism of estrogen in the body, assisting with the conversion of potentially harmful estrogen into weaker forms that are easier to manage. DIM is also the primary ingredient in our Genius Estrogen Balance supplement, which primarily supports female hormone health and wellness.
LJ100® is a unique form of Tongkat Ali extract, or Longjack. Longjack is an herb found in the Malaysian rainforests. It is sustainably harvested for use in LJ100 and backed by a number of clinical studies. Studies have shown LJ100 can support the body with maintaining hormone balance and healthy cortisol and free testosterone levels, enhancing libido, reducing fatigue, and increasing physical and mental energy.
Boron is a trace mineral that may have a number of health benefits, most notably with regard to anti-inflammatory qualities. Studies have shown that it can positively impact the body’s use of estrogen, testosterone, and Vitamin D, supports bone growth and maintenance, reduces levels of inflammatory biomarkers, and even supports the formation of essential molecules like NAD+, arguably the most important coenzyme in the body.
The Genius Advantage
We hope that you come away from this deep dive into our Genius Test supplement with a greater understanding of how ambitious our formula truly is. While testosterone support is a major part of why this product was formulated, it is broad in its support of overall wellness.
