Cavalier Supplements: A Gentleman’s Product Line

Cavalier Supplements

With the tagline, “Be Cavalier”, NutraBolt is targeting the “executive level” with Cavalier Supplements

Just one look at the packaging of the Cavalier Supplements line tells you what market they’re going for — a premium, upscale product line, giving off a very “classic Old Spice” sort of vibe with the glass bottles, cork caps and elegant font.

Marketing imagery is all well and good, but what has us interested is that the “premium” approach appears to extend to the ingredient content along with the packaging. Cavalier comes to us from NutraBolt, the umbrella company that owns the famous Cellucor brand, as well as NEON Sport and Royal Sport. Cavalier Supplements makes it the fourth brand in the NutraBolt family.

So if a high-quality supplement line for men with nice glass bottles for your shelf sounds intriguing, read on for our summary overview of each product … but first take a second to sign up for PricePlow Alerts so you can be sure you’re getting the best deal possible:

The Cavalier Supplement Products

No confusing names to figure out here — each of Cavalier’s products spell out exactly what they do on the label!

  • Daily Cognitive Stress Support

    Cavalier Daily Cognitive Support

    This generalized nootropic and anti-inflammatory relies on two tried-and-true standards: gingko biloba and Panax ginseng. It’s also got choline bitartrate, the awesome mind-muscle connection enhancer, and rhodiola rosea, a major stress reducer and cognitive booster.[1,2]

    No doubt, these are four of our favorite brain-regulating and cognitive enhancing ingredients… but what doses are they in? We’ll likely never know, since all of Cavalier Supplements ingredient labels are the dreaded proprietary blends.

    This cognitive enhancer, for instance, has 2 capsules worth 855mg of proprietary blend, as well as an interesting 841IU Vitamin D.

  • Daily Testosterone Support

    This T-booster formula is centered around Ashwagandha, a herb long used in Ayurvedic medicine to quell anxiety, and Eurycoma Longifolia, the plant more commonly known as “longjack”, or most commonly, Tongkat Ali.

    And for good reason, as it’s been shown to increase both testosterone and libido in some men.[3,4] Rounding out the formula is agaricus bisporus fruit extract, a mushroom extract that has shown some serious promise in reducing and regulating estrogen production.[5]

  • Daily Sexual Health Support

    Obviously, the ingredients in this blend are all thought to improve libido and sexual stamina. But they have some other benefits too.

    Velvet bean extract is a powerful antioxidant and also improves mood by stimulating dopamine production.[6] Epimedium is more commonly known as “horny goat weed” and improves blood flow all over, not just in the “target area”, so to speak.[7] Muira Pauma is a plant extract that also improves mood and reduces anxiety.[8] And yohimbe is great for cognition, focus and also helps to reduce anxiety.[9]

  • Daily Joint Health Support

    This blend pairs high doses of vitamin C and D with Devil’s Claw root extract and turmeric extract standardized for quercetin.

    Devil’s Claw has done really well in studies of patients with osteoarthritis, helping to possibly reduce pain and improve mobility.[10] There are also some studies showing it reduced feelings of pain in the neck, lower back and in several different muscle groups.[11] Quercetin has also done well in trials with patients who have arthritis.[12]

  • Daily Prostate Support

    Cavalier’s prostate blend contains a big dose of vitamin D and zinc as well as the extracts of pomegranate, pumpkin seed and soybean seed. All of these have studies indicating that they help to inhibit or aid in the recovery from prostate cancer.[13,14,15]

Cavalier Supplements

The Daily Testosterone Support

NutraBolt is definitely targeting the “executive level” with this line of supplements. These products all have ingredients that show promise, and we think that many hard working men would love some of the products.

We’ve yet to see a nootropic supplement really break the barrier into the “corporate level”, but the need for one is clearly there, given how much 5-Hour Energy is consumed anymore. It will be interesting to see whether or not this branding play will have legs, but at least the ingredient profiles look decent.

However, that brings us to the one major issue:

Premium Blends, but proprietary formulas

The one minor disappointment here is that the labels use proprietary blends for their extracts, but with so few ingredients in each it’s easy to check and guesstimate for clinical dosing where applicable. NutraBolt’s track record also indicates they’ll probably be doing things in a quality manner, as they basically have never had a major quality issue, and they sell with that reputation.

With that said, we really don’t know 100% for certain what exactly is in any of these products… so it makes things a bit more difficult to analyze.

What of the prices?

As we write this, these are GNC store exclusives, and also only sold in the United States. We’re hoping to see worldwide sales sometime soon — while the prices already aren’t too bad for a premium-end product (we often see GNC-exclusive products have far higher prices), lower prices with more PricePlow-powered competition is always better!
