Back in 2014, this was the first product in a while that really gave the #1 spot a run for its money. It has a very versatile and powerful set of ingredients. This product definitely fires on all cylinders and flat out produces the results! The question is if you can afford it! It's the most costly booster we have reviewed at $197/bottle. However, with the promo, if you buy 1 bottle, you get 2 FREE, and that makes the per bottle cost ($65/bottle) much more price competitive. Bottom line is that this product gets great reviews and very good customer feedback!
I have to admit after researching and reviewing a lot of test booster products, I typically see various similarities and a group of common test boosting ingredients between the different supplements as we continually search for the best testosterone booster on the market.
I also have a good sense now for what dosages to look for as well as what kinds of ingredients have been studied and shown to do the job when it comes to boosting testosterone levels.
That is why Test No. 17 intrigued me. As I researched this product, I found things that were not common with most of the popular and best test boosters (as well as the not-so-good ones) on the market.
The product was created by Dr. Field Farrar, a man who suffered from low testosterone. His story is that he had the level of testosterone equivalent to what would be in a 90-year old man.
As a doctor with low testosterone levels, he set out on a journey to figure out what it would take to raise his testosterone levels naturally without having to inject himself with pure testosterone.
In his quest to boost his testosterone level naturally, he says that he spent nearly $1000 a month on different supplements that he took.
Here’s his breakdown:
He was frustrated with the ineffectiveness of most of the test boosters on the market, and he was frustrated with paying nearly $1000 month on each of the different test boosting ingredients he felt actually worked, so he decided to create his own natural testosterone booster – Test Stack No. 17.
Through lots of trial and error, he and his staff came up with 20 different testosterone boosting formulas that he felt were viable.
With each of the formulas, he and the staff monitored all serum testosterone levels and they determined that formula number 17 was the formula that had the greatest impact on increasing and boosting testosterone levels.
Formula No. 17 had the most powerful and noticeable testosterone boosting production among the volunteers who were testing out the different formulas.
Dr. Farrar claims that some of the volunteer patients actually tripled their testosterone levels with Formula No. 17! Some of the volunteers said that the effects of Formula No. 17 actually reminded them of a Winstrol, Masteron, and HGH stack.
No lightening bolts or explosions on the bottle. You can definitely tell this product was not created by some marketing guru. Very plain Jane and simple bottle, but packed with a ton of ingredients at dosages that are meaningful and powerfully effective. I’ve reviewed other products that have had 40mg of one ingredient, as an example.
This product is comprised of 2,125mg of a very powerful testosterone boosting blend of ingredients.
Check out the ingredients, as their website has described them:
Avenacosides A&B & 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran
Attaches to your sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). When your SHBG is attached or bound to these compounds, it becomes unable to bind to your free testosterone, making it unable to render your free testosterone inactive.
The result is more testosterone available for building muscle and less wasted. And remember, making muscle gains from your own natural free testosterone allows your body to maintain gains and avoid an imbalance in your body’s chemistry.
ProLensis Bulbine Natalensis
Included in the formula to help limit aromatization of estrogen from the increases in both total and free testosterone.
Bulbine has been proven to be effective in humans, in which we tend to constantly observe a 20-38% drop in estrogen with a substantial increase in testosterone.
The key with Bulbine is to be dosed properly because too high of a dose can cause a drop instead of a rise in testosterone.
Bulbine has even been reported to have more erection-inducing effects in rats, which many in real life can attest to its libido-inducing effects.
Has been shown to control muscle-killing hormones such as cortisol while lowering prolactin. A decrease in prolactin almost instantaneously results in a rise in testosterone. See, when dopamine in the brain rises, it sends a message to the testes that one must go out and procreate.
When you procreate so to speak (had to go there ha ha), having an orgasm will cause a release in a variety of hormones, including prolactin, which temporarily causes a rise in both prolactin and cortisol.
Trust me, I have used Shilijet by itself and have experienced the libido that I had during my teen years — you know, the time in your life when you could get off from a Victoria Secret’s magazine!
Cnidium is a testosterone accelerator and a vasodilator – it increases your nitric oxide production. The result… Outstanding muscle pumps from workouts that will enable awesome strength increases – and a secondary benefit of the increased NO production is that your manhood will be out-standing as well due to the increased blood flow to your johnson.
Catuaba P.E. 4:1 Extract
Catuaba is a botanical testosterone booster and an aphrodisiac. It’s also been shown to have immunity enhancing effects, making it a great addition for bodybuilders who need fast recovery for hard training.
Xanthoparmelia Scabrosa 35% Piperazine
This is a lichen that has a reputation of being a “longevity” compound.
Xanthoparmelia is now being used in the prevention of certain cancers and like Cnidium; it increases testosterone and nitric oxide, so it too, will help bring about more intense workouts and more intense sexual pleasure.
Desmodium Gangeticum 10:1
An Ayurvedic compound that raises testosterone, reduces inflammation, aids in recovery, and increases sex drive. And it lowers muscle tissue by destroying acids without toxicity or side effects.
A testosterone accelerator, an aphrodisiac and a tonic for the reproductive organs that increases blood flow to the extremities. Ligusticum suppresses production of “TNF alpha” — an enzyme that secretes “stress hormones” such as cortisol. This promotes muscle growth and prevents muscle breakdown.
Chlorophytum Borivilianum (Safed Musli)
Contains saponins that enhance immunity, boost test levels and lower estrogen levels.
Like it or not, it increases ejaculate volume and the mobility of sperm cells. For this reason, it is even used as an alternative to fertility drugs with much success.
A treatment for impotence and lack of stamina with a “cleansing and clarifying” effect that is especially valuable to bodybuilders since their livers are often taxed from various substances.
Paeonia Lactiflora will make everything else you stack it with work better.
Fadogia increases LH, luteinizing hormone, the body’s messenger that signals the testis to pump out more testosterone.
Age, anabolic steroid cycle recovery, and environmental toxins can cause your LH production to decrease drastically. Fadogia will prevent this decrease so there is no suppression of your body’s ability to produce generous amounts of testosterone!
As I researched this product, I expected the reviews to really hit this product hard especially at the high price. After looking at the independent review sites and, more importantly, the customer reviews, I am seeing this product getting very high marks across the board.
I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to see especially given the ingredients are not the ones I normally see while reviewing most testosterone booster, but customers seem to giving this test booster overall very positive marks even at the price.
In short, no, but I will have to say that it is certainly a very worthy contender!
In fact, with the promo of buying 1 and getting 2 for free, this product now becomes much more competitively priced and is right in line with the other products that we have rated in our Top 3 of the year on a per bottle price comparison of about $65/bottle.
Note: To take advantage of the promo, simply put 3 bottles in your cart and then use the PROMO CODE “BESTBOOSTER”, and you’ll be good to go!

Full transparency is that this product definitely caught me by surprise.
This was one where I honestly was expecting to tell you that it was a total ripoff. However, I have to say, after researching the rather uncommon ingredients compared to a lot of T boosters on the market, reading other review sites, and also researching real customer reviews, this product seems to be the real deal as far as natural testosterone boosters are concerned!
This product definitely seems to be the real deal when it comes to boosting your testosterone levels!
The biggest drawback…and it is a huge drawback….. is the price. This product sells for $197 per bottle (one month’s supply). I can tell you that for me, that is just too much. I can get three months worth of TestoGen for that price, and I know how well TestoGen works.
HOWEVER, with the current promotion (Buy 1 and Get 2 FREE), now you’re paying $197 for 3 bottles, which works out to about $65 per bottle – and that truly is a competitive price for a good testosterone booster that actually produces results!
Regardless of which T booster you choose, I would always recommend that you give it a full cycle of 90 days (3 months) anyway, so with this promotion, this promo works out very nicely.
Without the promo, it’s difficult to recommend this product because it’s so cost prohibitive, but with the promo, this is a very worthy option!
With the promo, it’s definitely a Top 5 Recommendation now!
I also really like the fact that they have a 110% UNCONDITIONAL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!! That’s freaking awesome and shows a ton of confidence by the company that they truly have a product over delivers on what it says it will!!
Finally, most of the customer reviews are very positive on product. Sure, you’ll find the occasional person who you know gives a bad review to EVERYTHING, and there are a few customers reviews that said they didn’t get much out of the product, but I really haven’t found more than just a handful people saying that this product sucks. Especially for the price, so that’s a really good sign!
With the promo, this product definitely would make it in our Top 5!
