Animal Test Review
It’s not surprising to find some pretty extreme testosterone supplements. Animal Test from Universal Nutrition falls into that extreme category.
“Animal Test is the ultimate in legal hypertrophic, pro-testosterone supplementation,” claims the manufacturer (Universal Nutrition). I’ve heard many companies make similar claims, so I’m curious to see if Animal Test is different.
Does it have proven ingredients? Is it side-effect free? What do users say about it? I hope the answers I found help you decide if Animal Test is worth trying or not.
Animal Test Ingredients
Animal Test contains two proprietary blends:
Pro-Androgen Complex (2,500 mg)
• Urtica Dioica – increases free testosterone levels by reducing sex hormone binding globulin. 
• Cissus Quadrangularis – may increase testosterone, but it has not been tested for this. It has been tested for joint pain and weight loss.
• Polygonum Cuspidatum – contains trans-resveratrol, which reduces estrogen effects.
• Agaricus Bisporus – may prevent aromatase from converting testosterone into estrogen.
• Hesperetin – promotes balance between estrogen and testosterone.
• Yohimbe – believed to increase testosterone levels.
Hypertrophic Response Complex (1,500 mg)
• Arachidonic Acid – increases inflammation, which stimulates muscle growth.
• Grapefruit – enhances ingredient absorption.
• Bioperine® – enhances ingredient absorption.
Does Animal Test Have Recommended Dosages?
Since Animal Test uses proprietary blends, individual dosages are hidden. Even if dosages were shown, this wouldn’t help me determine if Animal Test has safe, effective amounts. The reason why is that most of the ingredients haven’t been tested on humans. So, I don’t know what the recommended dosages are or if they are used.
Is Animal Test Safe?
Since research is limited, it’s hard to know if Animal Test’s ingredients are safe. Cissus Quadrangularis and Bioperine® are considered safe, but yohimbe is possibly unsafe. WebMD says yohimbe may cause increased heart rate, kidney failure, heart attack, and stroke.
Several customers reported these side effects:
• Joint pain
• Constant thirst
• Increased soreness
Animal Test should only be taken by men over age 21.
Twenty-eight users gave Animal Test 4.1 stars out of 5 on Amazon.com. This rating is standard on other sites.
Users who like Animal Test say it’s an effective testosterone booster. While using it, they had more strength, faster muscle growth, and increased energy. These people usually got results within the first week.
Users who don’t like Animal Test say it doesn’t work, only works for a few days, causes side effects, or is overpriced.
Overall, there are more positive reviews than negative ones.
Using, Stacking, and Cycling Animal Test
On training days, take one pack with your pre-workout meal. On non-training days, take one pack with any meal. For best results, eat more quality calories and protein, and perform intense exercise while using Animal Test.
Animal Test can be stacked with these Universal Nutrition products:
• Animal Pak — multivitamin
• Animal Pump — to enhance workout performance
• Animal Stak — to maximize hormone output
Take Animal Test for two cycles (42 days), and then cycle off for 4 weeks. You’ll need two containers to complete 2 cycles. When you cycle off Animal Test, take Animal M-Stak to preserve muscle gains.
Where to Buy
Animal Test is not cheap. On the official website, a 21-pack container costs $109.95! Luckily, I found lower prices on these sites:
None of these retailers have a return policy.
Is Animal Test Worth Buying?
Animal Test has a few good ingredients. However, most of the ingredients have not been tested on humans. One ingredient (yohimbe) is possibly unsafe. I also don’t know if safe, effective dosages are used. On the upside, many users like Animal Test. On the downside, it’s very expensive.
I think Animal Test is worth trying. However, you may want to keep looking for testosterone boosters that are rated higher and cost less.
