How To Lower Estrogen Levels

THE ESTROGEN EPIDEMIC AND HOW TO LOWER ESTROGEN LEVELS.

A lot of men have the desire to lower estrogen and increase testosterone to obtain a better sense of well being, but don’t really know where to start. The modern day hormonal imbalance in men is primarily resulted from changes in our environment and food options. In this article, were going to go over some diet choices as well as various products that can help lower estrogen levels. Continue reading

1-Andro Results And Side Effects

1-Andro is one of the best prohormones in existence and great for a first time user!

A West Texas A&M University study showed that with a clean diet and solid weight training program, 11 pounds of muscle was obtained while using 1-Andro. As a result, the study compared it to a milligram to milligram injection of testosterone enanthate.

This compound does not convert to estrogen or DHT. Because of this,  estrogen and hair loss will not be an issue for most people. It produces lean and steady gains, however it can, temporarily lower good cholesterol. It can also cause some lethargy if you aren’t taking in enough calories or pairing it with a test base like 4 Andro.

Today’s 1-Andro products are not methylated. Hence, damage to the liver like most steroidal products are unlikely. The liver contains the necessary enzyme needed to convert 1-Andro into 1-testosterone, but this process does not in any way harm liver function. Continue reading

Ashwagandha Review

Ashwagandha is not yet the most popular testosterone booster the market. However, it definitely has the most clinical research to prove it’s effectiveness.

Studies have shown it to boost testosterone levels up to 15%. Ashwagandha is a medicinal herb thats been used in India for centuries with many well studied health benefits. Studies have shown that Ashwagandha can boost endurance during physical activity by sharpening brain function.

300mg’s of KSM-66 Ashwagandha given to human subjects for 60 days. The herb was able to slash cortisol levels by 27% and reduce inflammation. It increased “good” HDL-cholesterol (~17%), and reduced “bad” LDL-cholesterol (~9%). 57 young and healthy men participated in a study of the effects of ashwagandha. It showed a testosterone increase of 40% on infertile subjects and a 15% increase in healthy subjects. Also noted was a significantly improved sperm quality. Another study done with infertile men showed a 36% increase in luteinizing hormone. This suggest that Ashwagandha stimulates testosterone production at brain level. Continue reading

Legal Alternatives To Steroids

Believe it or not, there are legal alternatives to steroids that actually work! This is a review of the best options available right now and what you can expect when taking them.

I remember a time when I was seriously struggling to put on any amount of muscle. No matter how much I ate or how long I was in the gym, I just couldn’t grow. All of my “newbie gains” had become old news. I wasted so much time looking at magazine adds promising to deliver all the muscle growth you could ever imagine.

I probably spent thousands of dollars at overpriced stores like GNC buying bullshit that I let myself get suckered into.

Like a lot of young guys, I wanted to get big. I was naive and willing to buy any product that could help. ButI wanted to stay away from something that could put me in jail.  Even if I did decide to use steroids, I didn’t have the slightest clue how to get them. I felt hopeless that I would ever be able to get the sort of physic that I wanted. Taking creatine and protein only goes so far.

Over the years I ended up just sticking with things that I knew worked like vitamins and preworkout. Basic supplementation,  a strict diet, and a very consistent lifting protocol allowed me to actually see some gains. I lost faith in all the magazines that continuously contained less actual content and became overrun with misleading product adds. Fed up, I started turning more to real information that I could find on the internet. I soon learned that there was a whole other less mainstream side of the supplement industry.  Soon, I became fully aware of cutting edge companies like Blackstone Labs.  I learned everything I could about grey market compounds like prohormones and SARMs.

Adrenal Rush V2 Review

 

Adrenal Rush V2 has raised the bar for what people should expect in a preworkout

I’ve been lifting and supplementing for over ten years and have tried almost every preworkout on the market.  I honestly think Primeval Labs Adrenal Rush V2 may have just set a new ‘gold standard’ for what fitness enthusiast should expect from a solid preworkout.

Primeval Labs is defiantly the biggest competitor for the juggernaut that is Blackstone Labs. It’s fairly obvious that Primeval waits for Blackstone to release a successful product, then makes huge improvements to that idea. Whereas Blackstone is certainly the biggest innovator of all supplement companies, Primeval really excels at giving consumers quality and quantity in exchange for a great price.

I knew their anabolics were great, however I was skeptical of their preworkout because the original not only tasted like shit but gave me the shits.  I had also just finished two tubs of the amazingly flavored
Blackstone Labs Dust V2
, which is one of the most popular workout products out right now. Primeval made some serious changes and absolutely killed it this time!

Ostarine Safety

I want to shed some light on some potential safety concerns in regards to Ostarine. Ostarine is a compound that is being marketed as the safe alternative to taking steroids. However, there is one very important aspect that is not being told to consumers.

Ostarine, or mk-2886, is what is known as a selective androgen receptor modulator. It is a pharmaceutical compound that will more than likely one day become a prescription drug. However, it is still in the  research phase and available as a research chemical. It was originaly created to treat muscle wasting diseases and osteoporosis. Continue reading

Homemade Preworkout For Less

I love preworkout just as much as anyone else but it can be very expensive!

I want to show you how to make a homemade preworkout thats effective for your fitness goals and your wallet.

The average leading preworkouts cost around $36 for a small container that usually only have 30 servings. Unless you are sensitive to caffeine, most people are going to use more than only one scoop.

The other problem is that a lot of preworkouts are very under dosed on the ingredients that actually work. The few that have the proper doses needed to actually work, cost just as much and only have 20 servings. The less expensive preworkouts are usually masked with a proprietary blends on the labels.  Proprietary blends make it impossible to really know what you are really getting.

There is an alternative to spending to much  money to get that hyped up feeling preworkouts provide. Continue reading

Prohormone Guide

This is a prohormone guide that was written as a way to inform you of all the things I spent years learning about prohormones.  I’m going to tell you all the the things I wish someone would have told me, rather than doing countless hours of research.

The second part of this article will discuss more in depth knowledge on the subject and how to safely us prohormones. Click here for HOW TO USE PROHORMONES

 

What is a prohormone?

A prohormone is a precursor to active a HORMONE. Once ingested, the prohormones have to go through a conversion process in your body in order to become the hormone.

A designer steroid is converted into a STEROID once you ingest it and does not go though a conversion process. Unfortunately,these compounds were pretty toxic to your organs because they had to be methylated in order for your body to absorb them, as most steroids have to be injected in order to get into the system.
