Primal-T is a supplement made by a company called 1st Phorm which claims to help support your goals.

We’re always on the lookout for the latest supplements to hit the market, and so we were naturally keen to learn a bit more about this product from 1st Phorm.

The supplements market has grown hugely in the last few years as more and more people look for products to support their healthy lifestyles.

Primal-T is the latest in 1st Phorm’s range of supplements which claims to contain natural ingredients to help support you on your journey.

The purpose of this Primal-T review is for us to take a close look at this supplement from all angles as we look to try and determine where it stands in relation to the best so-called ‘testosterone boosters’ on sale right now.

We’re going to focus on the ingredients formula, the customer reviews and the doses as we look to try and determine where this supplement stands.

Before we get going, it’s important to realise that most of the products in this category, including the one featured on this page, have not been proven to boost testosterone levels. They are usually simply food supplements which contain a number of plant extracts and other ingredients such as vitamins and minerals.

So, let’s get cracking and start taking a close look at Primal-T in a bit more detail.

What does Primal-T do?

As we’ve already deduced, Primal-T is the main supplement offering from 1st Phorm.

It’s available to buy on the official 1st Phorm website and it’s not currently available on Amazon, unlike a lot of the leading supplements out there right now.

The marketing material for Primal-T on the official website claims that this supplement work in multiple ways to support you on your journey.

However, 1st Phorm claim to use “premium” ingredients to help support your goals.

1st Phorm say that they’ve formulated this product for “maximum potency” to help you on your journey.

This all sounds pretty good to us, but we’ve learnt not to read too much into the claims made by manufacturers in their marketing material.

The best ways to judge whether a product is actually going to be effective or not is to take a close look at the ingredients formula and check out the customer reviews.

So let’s now start to focus on the actual ingredients formula of Primal-T as we look to see where it ranks in comparison to the leading products out there in this category right now.

What you need to know about the ingredients

Let’s begin this this part by taking a look at the actual ingredients formula of Primal-T as we look to see where it stands.

Primal-T ingredients

The major disappointing thing we immediately noticed when taking a close look at the ingredients formula of Primal-T is that 1st Phorm have chosen to use a proprietary blend in this case.

This means that unfortunately we don’t know the doses of the individual ingredients used.

We always advise that you stay away from supplements that use proprietary blends, as it means that you don’t know the doses of the ingredients.

This makes it incredibly difficult to judge the effectiveness of the product, and it’s far from ideal if you’re looking to compare products to choose the best.

Let’s now focus on the main ingredients that Primal-T does contain.

• Tribulus Terrestris Complex – This is a plant extract which found its way into a lot of the early supplements when they were emerging as a product category. However, recent studies have shown that it’s not really that effective. There are other better ingredients that could have been used in its place.

• Fenugreek – This is a solid ingredient. Fenugreek, a spice which is often found in dishes such as curries, is commonly found in the top products, so it’s good to find it in the Primal-T formula.

• Muira Puma – This is a plant extract. However, there is little to know evidence to suggest that it will actually help very much, so there are some better ingredients that could have been used in its place.

• Avena Sativa – We’ve not come across this ingredient in many supplements before. It’s an extract that comes from the green leafy parts of the oat plant, rather than the grain itself. There are some claims on the internet which suggest that it could help with certain things, but there is a real lack of scientific evidence backing this up.

• Eurycoma Longifolia – Also known as Longjack, this is another common ingredient. It’s an extract from a flowering plant in the family Simaroubaceae, native to Indonesia. However, the evidence behind it isn’t that great really.

• Diinodolymethane – This is another common supplement ingredient that’s known as DIM for short. It’s a substance found in large quantities in green and leafy vegetables.

• Ashwagandha – It’s a plant extract which has various claims about it online. However, we would prefer to see some more scientific research conducted into this supplement.

• Maca – Commonly found in some supplements. There are various claims about it, but not much in the way of evidence to back them up.

• Suma – Also known as Brazilian ginseng, this is a relatively common ingredient. Some of the top products use it, so it’s good to see it having been added to the Primal-T ingredients list.

• Caffeine Anhydrous – This is something of a strange inclusion for a supplement like this. Of course, you probably already know all about Caffeine. The problem is that we don’t know the dose due to the proprietary blend, and that makes it difficult to tell whether it will cause any side-effects or not.

• Rhodiola Rosea – This is an ingredient which we’re more used to finding in the best pre workout supplements on the market. It’s not a bad inclusion in this supplement, but there isn’t a massive amount of evidence behind its supposed benefits.

What’s missing?

The Primal-T formula does contain some pretty good things, but it’s also missing some of our favorite ingredients. They are:

• D-Aspartic Acid
• Magnesium and Zinc
• Black Pepper Extract

D-Aspartic Acid is our favorite ingredient for a product like this. Many of the top supplements use doses of around three grams.

Meanwhile, both Magnesium and Zinc are essential minerals.

In case you didn’t know, Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal serum testosterone concentrations and normal fertility and reproduction.

Are there any Primal-T side effects?

The Primal-T formula is a relatively safe one, so you shouldn’t have to worry too much about suffering from any serious side effects.

That being said, the fact that the Caffeine is included as part of the proprietary blend is less than ideal, because too much Caffeine can cause problems for some people.

We do also always recommend that you do some of your own research into the ingredients before trying any new supplement for the first time.

It’s also always a good idea to speak to your doctor before thinking about trying any new supplement for the first time.

How to take Primal-T

Each bottle of Primal-T contains 80 capsules, which is the equivalent of a 40 day supply.

The directions say that you should take two capsules in the morning.

For “additional benefit”, on training days, you can take two capsules one hour prior to starting your workout.

They also say that you should use Primal-T in a repeating five days on, two days off cycle.

What are customers saying?

As Primal-T is not currently on sale on Amazon, the only reviews we were able to find were on the official website. This isn’t ideal because it’s not clear whether 1st Phorm filter or edit what appears there.

Unsurprisingly, the product is very well received on the official website, with most of the reviews being for five stars.

Is this the best supplement?

Not in our opinion. Primal-T has some good ingredients but it’s let down badly by the fact that it uses a proprietary blend and is also missing some of our favorite ingredients such as D-Aspartic Acid and Magnesium and Zinc.

Anything else to consider?

You shouldn’t expect a supplement to do all of the hard work for you.

The simple fact of the matter is that supplements in this category have been designed to be combined with a healthy lifestyle and a solid exercise regime.

That being said, if you’re able to combine a quality supplement with a solid training regime and diet, then it can help to support you on your journey.

Primal-T review conclusion

That brings us to the end of our Primal-T review.

Overall, this supplement did not live up to the hype in our opinion, as it doesn’t use some key ingredients and also uses a proprietary blend.

Simply put there are some better options on the market right now if you’re looking fro a quality supplement.
