MDrive vs Nugenix…. Nugenix vs MDrive… which one takes the win? Both are 100% natural supplements, both are legal, and both claim to be the best in the business when it comes to raising your natural testosterone levels. Here’s our quick summary followed by a more detailed analysis below.
[NUGENIX VS MDRIVE SUMMARY] Although neither one of these test boosters makes it on our top 3 list, MDrive is our winner here. It comes in two options, “MDrive Boost and Burn,” and “MDrive Prime Testosterone Support.” We’d go with Prime Testosterone Support because it’s cheaper and shows everything clearly on the label so you know how much you’re taking. But it has some major flaws, such as being underdosed in some areas, and missing several important testosterone boosting ingredients. So don’t expect it to do miracles! Nugenix, on the other hand, is an overhyped product. The cost of $84.99 per bottle is laughable when you look at what this test booster offers. It’s nowhere near what products like Centrapeak and TestoFuel can do. The only positive thing Nugenix has going for it is that it’s mostly free from proprietary blends, so at least you know what you’re getting. Our advice is, if you’re serious about raising your testosterone levels naturally and feeling better in your day to day life, then make sure to do proper research and find a test booster that actually contains proven ingredients, in clinically studied amounts.
MDrive vs Nugenix – The Basics
MDrive and Nugenix are both very popular testosterone boosters. Both products have a lot of marketing going for them, but what’s the real truth behind these two supplements? Do they actually work?
Well, the marketing material of both products promises all the same benefits. You know, the usual:
- Have more energy
- Burn unwanted fat
- Feel stronger in the gym
- Have better libido and sex drive
Etc, etc. Don’t get us wrong, this is not a bad thing. If a testosterone booster can do these things, then kudos to them! It’s just that 99% of products claim these same benefits but in the end, when you try them, you wonder why you wasted your money.
So, can MDrive and Nugenix hold up to scrutiny? Both products have kept their ingredient formulas fairly slim, even after all these years of being on the market. Nugenix comes in 120 capsule bottles and you should take 4 caps per day. MDrive comes in 75 capsule bottles and is meant to be taken twice per day.
Let’s see if what they have is enough to help bring you back to your peak.
Ingredient Profile of Nugenix vs MDrive
Let’s start this part by taking a closer look at both ingredient formulas. Before we go further though, remember that Nugenix and MDrive both come in different options. Nugenix comes in the “Total T” version and “Ultimate” version, whereas MDrive comes as “Prime Testosterone Support” and “Boost and Burn”. We’ll be going over all of these versions below.
So, what’s inside of these supplements? Nugenix Ultimate contains some good ingredients, such as boron, D-Aspartic Acid, and Fenugreek. You’ll find a similar ingredient profile in Nugenix Total T as well. Another great thing is, you can see all their doses on the label – there’s no proprietary blends. However, both Nugenix formulas come with a few downsides. They contain a bunch of ingredients that are good for libido, but a few of them are actual testosterone boosters. Both Nugenix formulas also omitted some of our favorite T boosting ingredients – such as magnesium, Indole-3-Carbinol (found in broccoli), Rhodiola Rosea. These are very powerful, natural ingredients that you don’t want to miss if your goal is to maximize your chief masculine hormone. Magnesium, for example is shown to raise both free and total T levels.
What about MDrive? It too comes in two versions, both of which work a little differently. MD Prime Testosterone Support focuses just on helping you build strength, whereas MD Boost and Burn also aims to help you burn unwanted fat. Both versions have some solid ingredients – such as Ashwagandha and Ginseng – but they’re inferior to Nugenix formula. Why? Because some of MDrive’s ingredients are hidden in a proprietary blend. This is a big red flag. You don’t want to be using a product that doesn’t show you its dosages clearly on the label. Because you really don’t know how much you’re taking. A few ingredients in MDrive that do show their doses, are underdosed for the most part. For example, vitamin D is dosed at just 400IU per serving – you need at least 5-10 times that for it to be effective.
These are the main ingredients in MDrive Boost and Burn formula:
- B Vitamins
- “Booster Blend” – unknown amounts of individual ingredients
- “Burner Blend”– unknown amounts of individual ingredients
And here are the main ingredients of MDrive Prime Testosterone Support:
- Vitamin D
- B vitamins
- Tonkgat Ali
- S7 Blend
If your goal is boosting testosterone, then we’d go with the MDrive Prime Testosterone Support. Although it’s pretty weak compared to some of the test boosters we’ve reviewed, it’s at least transparent for the most part – you can see the ingredient doses in it. By contrast, the MDrive Boost and Burn version comes with two big proprietary blends which prevent you from knowing if it’s safe and whether it works or not.
Here’s a look at the main ingredients in Nugenix Total T:
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
- Zinc (severely underdosed, just 1 mg per serving)
- ElevATP blend
- Eurycoma Longifolia LongJack
As you can see, this version of Nugenix has a proprietary blend too. However it only contains two food ingredients which don’t do anything, so it’s negligible.
As for the Nugenix Ultimate ingredient formula, here’s how it looks:
- D-Aspartic Acid
- Epimedium Sagitattum
- Nettle Leaf
- Maca Root
- Mucuna Pruriens Extract
Key Takeaway: Both formulas are flawed. Whereas MDrive is made up of proprietary blends which prevent us from knowing how much we’re taking, Nugenix’s formulas are incomplete and some of the ingredients, such as zinc, are underdosed. That said, if we had to pick the winner, we’d go with Nugenix just because it’s more transparent.
Side Effects – Which Product is Safer?
From our experience, and based on their ingredient formulas, both MDrive and Nugenix contain well-researched ingredients. The only issue we have with MDrive is that we don’t know some of these ingredient’s doses. Too much and it can lead to side effects.
For that reason, we’ll give this round to Nugenix too.
Price and Value for Money?
Both Nugenix and MDrive are available on Amazon and many other websites online.
Nugenix Ultimate costs $84.99 for just 30 servings, making it one of the most expensive testosterone boosters on the market. Nugenix Total T is a little cheaper, costing around $63. But this is still in the very high end price bracket.
As for MDrive Boost and Burn, it costs around $50 for a bottle of 75 capsules, making it a bit cheaper. MDrive Prime Testosterone Support is the cheapest option, costing $26.99 for a bottle of 30 servings. This makes it the best value for money out of all options listed here, even though it’s flawed in some areas (e.g. a few underdosed ingredients, missing some core test boosters).
Our Conclusion to MDrive vs Nugenix
So, what our conclusion to this MDrive vs Nugenix face off?
Ultimately, neither one of these formulas looks too impressive. The main problems we’ve seen with Nugenix are the fact that it’s omitted several important ingredients, including the most important one – Vitamin D. One a little brighter side, the Nugenix formula is mostly transparent, so at least you know how much of each ingredient you’re ingesting.
The same can’t be said for MDrive’s Boost and Burn formula, which consists of two big blends which only show you their total doses, but not much more. This makes the MDrive Prime Testosterone Support a better option since it’s more transparent – and cheaper too. However, the vitamin D dose is pretty much nonexistent at 400IU per serving, making it ineffective at raising testosterone levels.
On the whole, we do think there are better options available than Nugenix and MDrive. That said, if you’re determined to get one of these two, we’d go with MDrive Prime Testosterone Support because it’s cheaper and contains no proprietary blends. It could help you with libido and strength, and maybe energy levels in the gym. But don’t expect it to boost your actual testosterone levels – it’s lacking the firepower to do that.
