The other day we came across a product called Neogenix Supremacy 2.0, which really couldn’t make up its mind what it was supposed to do for users.
Back in 2009, we had Supremacy which was a muscle builder and fat loss formula. Then we had Supremacy 2.0, which in March 2017 was first marketed as a “hormonal support and body recompositioning agent”, and then in August 2017 it was then marketed as a “top rated testosterone booster”.
It seems the company couldn’t make its mind up about it at all, so that piqued our curiosity enough to look at Supremacy 2.0 a little more closely, and this is what we found.
This is one of the most puzzling supplements we’ve reviewed in quite a while. We’ve seen it sold for building muscles while losing weight, and we’ve seen a different incarnation of the same product sold as a testosterone booster.
We can’t help thinking that the marketing for one version failed, and that the marketing for the other version didn’t do too well either. In fact, we’re directed from the Supremacy 2.0 website to that of an online retailer which no longer stocks either version. Or any other Neogenix product, come to think of it.
We checked the trademarks for both the product and the company and they’ve both lapsed because they weren’t renewed. So we can’t help thinking this was either a spectacularly unsuccessful marketing exercise, or somebody (who appears to be a one-man operation) was desperately trying to get rid of a heap of surplus ingredients.
All in all, it’s definitely a mystery.
Supremacy 2.0 contains ingredients which can cause skin rashes, digestion problems, raised heart rate, bleeding, and incontinence. It also could pose a risk to users suffering from any kind of liver condition.
On the Neogenix website, 60 capsules sell for $69.95.
First there was the original Neogenix Supremacy. Back in 2009 it was marketed as a combined muscle growth/fat loss formula, with many more ingredients than the current version (however there were three ingredients in the previous version that we still find in 2.0).
However, as of January 2017, as Supremacy 2.0 it was marketed as “the leading hormonal support and body recompositioning agent”. But only a few months later, that August it was now being remarketed as a “top rated testosterone booster”.
So now we had a different name, different formula, and different benefits. But here’s the kicker – way back in mid-2014 the trademark had expired anyway. According to Trademarkia where the status was listed, it expired because, “CONTINUED USE NOT FILED WITHIN GRACE PERIOD, UN-REVIVABLE”.
You can buy the trademark for Supremacy 2.0 for $199 in the US, $599 in Canada, and $649 over in Europe. We’d rather not, and we’d rather not buy a supplement that can’t make its mind up about what it’s supposed to be in the first place, either.
Overall, we do not recommend Neogenix Supremacy 2.0 to our readers.
We think that if this has been sold to women as a weight loss and/or muscle-building aid, that’s not really fair: the ingredients are going to mess with their hormonal balance. For example, the high Vitamin B6 content (over five times the recommended daily allowance) is going to reduce estrogen production.
The Forskohli content might just boost testosterone production, but only slightly – and yes, women need a certain amount of testosterone in their system, but nowhere near as much as men.
Men need a certain amount of estrogen in their system, but nowhere near as much as women. However, things can get out of hand when there’s too little of it in the male body – think more in the way of fat, and less in the way of less in the way of libido.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 2-3 times daily 20-minutes before meals. For best results, use for up to 12-weeks followed by a 2-week break.
And as for the Indole-3-Carbinol, it can alter estrogen production levels, but nobody’s been able to agree whether it raises or lowers those levels.
That depends on which version of the packaging you’re looking at, it’s either a testosterone booster or a weight loss/muscle building supplement.
If you want to use Supremacy 2.0 as a testosterone booster, certainly the Eurycoma Longifolia might just help.
But ladies, if you want to use it as a weight loss/muscle builder, you might find yourselves with a small excess testosterone and not-enough-estrogen problem thanks to the Eurycoma, as well as the estrogen reduction qualities of the Indole-3-Carbinol.
WebMD tells us Eurycoma Longifolia is “possibly safe” when taken by mouth for up to nine months.
Indole-3-Carbinol can cause side effects such as digestion problems and skin rash. Higher doses can bring on issues with balance, and tremors.
Momordica Chirantia’s reported side effects include digestion problems, fever, chest pains, lowered blood sugar levels, and incontinence.

We found two reviews on Amazon, our go-to site for more balanced reviews than we usually find on those sites set up to sell any given supplement. These Amazon reviews were dated March 2015, and read as follows:
Works as advertised. It promotes fat loss and lean muscle gains.
Did not notice any results.
One positive review, one negative. You can’t get much more balanced than that.
It doesn’t look like Neogenix Supremacy 2.0 offers a guarantee. This is what the website says:
“How do I return an item? Please contact customer service for more information on returning an item. Thank you.”
There’s a link on the website that gives the impression you can buy Supremacy 2.0 at bodybuilding.com, who were promoting it quite heavily on Facebook for a while.
That link should be taken down, because once at bodybuilding.com we discover that the no longer carry any Neogenix products.
However, that’s not to say you can’t join Neogenix as a distributor yourself. Their affiliate program invites readers to, “make a ton of cash by telling people about us”.
And that’s what we’ve been for a while here – telling you about Neogenix. And as for that ton of cash, we’re still waiting.
On closer inspection, there’s a catch – not only do we have to tell people about Neogenix for our ton of cash, we have to sell their products as well, through their “unique affiliate program”.
