How Do I Take It?
Users should take 3 servings of one capsule a day with meals.
It’s a pity the formula isn’t better, because this is not half bad actually. The idea serving schedule is about 3 or 4 spaced out evenly through the day to keep nutrients topped up.
We wouldn’t expect any serious side effects from this formula, but it is worth mentioning that in rare cases, people can react badly to saw palmetto.
Dizziness, headaches, and an upset stomach are a few of the things sometimes reported.

Natrogix Ultra Test Ingredients – In Detail
Another really important mineral for T, which is hard to get enough of from food. Important building blocks for male hormone. Lutenizing hormone, follicle stimulating hormone, and human growth hormone all need a healthy supply. 30mg is right in line with our daily tolerance, which is great.
Magnesium is a really strong start. With up to 60% of our T being made unusable by the protein Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, you need something like magnesium to lower SHBG count. That gives you more ‘free T’ for your body to use. 200mg is a solid dose too.
The wheels come off here after a strong start. This plant was once thought to have great T boosting abilities, but all studies that have been done since have found it does nothing for the hormone. It might have slight libido boosting qualities, but nothing like the effects plenty of products still claim.
At least one study did show this was able to raise T, but only when directed straight into the testicles. Unfortunately – or fortunately, depending on how squeamish you are – Natrogix Ultra Test doesn’t come with a syringe oral intake won’t be effective. Relax, no male version of Uma Thurman in Pulp Fiction for you.
Horny Goat Weed
Really doesn’t do much for your actual T levels but has been seen to help sex drive and possibly erection strength. So not perfect but not entirely useless.
Much the same story here. Longjack may be able to return T to normal range if you have clinically low levels, but it you want your natural peak, research shows us it can’t help. Again though it may have something to offer in the libido boosting department.
This is another choice that misses the T mark but still may have a use. Saw palmetto shows it can be a great way to promote prostate health, something that is always important but is especially so as we age.
No real T boosting qualities here either, but because we’re feeling generous we’ll point out it has some benefits for weight loss and joint health in the older guy. Still not really what we came for though.
Another ingredient which helps joint health and has other fringe benefits but no real effect on T.
There’s a lot missing here. D-Aspartic Acid is the most obvious, but things like vitamin D and boron are also AWOL.
Most suprising of all though is the lack of an anti-estrogen profile. As we age, the female hormone estrogen steps up production, pushing T further down. Several natural ingredients, like vitamin B6 and luteolin, can lower estrogen and tip the balance back in favour of T.
So any of these are better choices than some of the more bizarre picks in Natrogix Ultra Test.
A disappointment. If we wanted a ZMA supplement we’d just buy one of those and if we want a booster to really get our T back up and running, we’ll definitely go elsewhere. So should you.
