Momentous Supplements Review: Do Huberman's Supps Work?

Momentous Supplements Review: Do Huberman's Supps Work?

Read our Editorial Guidelines to learn more about what makes our site the premier resource for online health information.

Momentous Supplements is a brand made famous by neuroscientist and health influencer Andrew Huberman. The company describes their products as “Best-In-Class Human Performance,” and sells everything from individual herbal extracts to minerals.

But are Momentous Supplements well-formulated in terms of ingredients and dosages, or are these just marketing claims? Does the brand use any questionable additive ingredients? What retailer sells Momentous Supplements for the best price? And how do real users rate and describe the effects of these products?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more, as we analyze the ingredients in Momentous Supplements based on medical studies to give our take on whether they’re likely to be effective, or if they’re a waste of money.

We’ll provide a cost comparison to show which retailer sells Momentous for the best price, and feature unsponsored customer reviews of the brand.

Ingredient Analysis – Momentous Tongkat Ali

Momentous Tongkat Ali ingredients

The ingredients in Momentous Tongkat Ali are shown above.

This is a single-herb supplement, and the dosage is 400 milligrams (mg) per serving.

Tongkat ali is one of the most well-studied herbal supplements for testosterone support in men, and a clinical trial published in the Andrologia journal concluded that “the raised testosterone following [tongkat ali] supplementations could benefit muscle and strength gain in young adults.”

It’s worth noting though that the dose used in the above-linked trial was 600 mg, or 50% more than that in Momentous’ supplement.

As we documented in our Black Bull Honey reviews article, most of the research we’ve come across on tongkat ali for testosterone used an extract, which is more potent than the raw herb version used in Momentmous Tongkat Ali.

A 2022 on tongkat ali supplementation found that the herb increased testosterone levels, but all clinical trials analyzed with a reported dosage used an extract rather than raw herb.

Based on the available research, we consider Momentous Tongkat Ali potentially effective for increasing T levels, but a tongkat ali extract may be a better option than this supplement.

Before analyzing the ingredients in Momentous Magnesium Threonate, we’ll feature a real user’s review of the brand.

Real User Tries Momentous

A YouTube creator named “Shervin Shares” published a video after 30 days of testing Momentous’ tongkat ali supplement, where he actually got lab tests done of his testosterone levels to determine if the supplement was effective:

Ingredient Analysis – Momentous Magnesium

Momentous Magnesium Threonate ingredients

The ingredients in Momentous Magnesium Threonate are shown above.

Like the previous supplement, this is a single-ingredient formulation which makes it simple to analyze for efficacy.

Magnesium is a mineral that many Americans are deficient in, and its supplementation is associated in clinical studies with reduced blood pressure, reduced inflammation, reduced blood sugar and more.

From a formulation perspective, we recommend this supplement and magnesium threonate is one of the most absorbable forms of magnesium.

However, this supplement may be a cost-ineffective way to obtain magnesium.

Momentous Magnesium Threonate currently costs $49.95 for a one-time purchase, which equates to $1.67 per serving.

Bulletproof Magnesium is our top magnesium supplement pick, because it's affordable (under $15 at a subscription rate) and has no inactive ingredients that we consider to be unhealthy.

The inactive ingredients in Momentous’ supplement are likely safe and non-toxic, so we have no issues with the formulation other than the price.

We are not suggesting Bulletproof Magnesium is superior to Momentous Magnesium; rather, we’re suggesting they may be functionally equivalent and Bulletproof is less than half the price.

Where to Buy Momentous for the Best Price

Momentous Supplements are sold at a variety of online retailers. Here's a price breakdown at the time of publishing this article:

Andrew Huberman Discusses Health Supplements

As mentioned in the intro to this article, health influencer and researcher Andrew Huberman is one of the reasons why Momentous is so popular. 

In a YouTube video with over 750,000 views, he discusses how to develop a rational approach for supplementation to support optimal health.

The video is around two hours long, but it's timestamped so viewers can check for topics they find the most interesting:

Real Customers Review Momentous

Amazon is a better resource for honest customer reviews than a brand's website in our opinion.

Tongkat Ali is currently the brand's most-reviewed product, with over 200 total reviews and an average review rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The top positive review of this supplement from a verified purchaser comes from a user named "Pawel" who gives the product a 5/5 star rating and claims it improved exercise capacity:

" just after two weeks noticed real difference during workouts-im doing mainly endurance stuff. I could last stronger during intervals. Workouts/repetitions/intervals I was struggling previously I could sustatain with noticable reserve/margin...Overall feel stronger."

The top negative review from a verified purchaser is written by a user named "BADKARMA" who gives the product a 1/5 star rating and claims it had no effects:

"I upped my dose to 4 a day. Only thing that happened is that 8-9 hours later I was very hungry. 2 didn’t work, 3 didn’t work and 4 does nothing positive. I question it’s quality. Non returnable also"

Momentous has an average review rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars on Facebook.

Conclusion

Momentous Supplements make clean formulations without any harmful active ingredients (at least based on the two products we reviewed), which alone makes them stand out in the US supplement market.

We consider Momentous Tongkat Ali potentially effective, but we’d prefer to recommend a tongkat ali extract rather than the raw tongkat ali powder sold by Momentmous, because extracted versions of this herb seem more well-studied for testosterone support.

We recommend Momentous Magnesium from a formulation perspective, although it may not be the most cost-effective way to obtain magnesium.

This is a relatively new brand, so there aren’t many real customer reviews online yet to gauge user sentiment.

Amazon currently has the best prices on this brand's supplements.
