25 ways to increase androgen receptors and enhance potency (2018 update)

Androgens such as testosterone and DHT exert their beneficial action on the tissue by binding to androgen receptors. Testosterone and DHT are both anabolic to muscle and boosts muscle growth. A recent study found that, although androgens are needed for muscle growth, it is the androgen receptors that are essential for hypertrophy.

46 ways to increase DHT (2018 update)

  DHT was always thought to be converted from testosterone, however, recent data suggest that instead, it's converted from Δ-androstenedione by 5α-reductase isoenzyme-1 to 5α-androstanedione, followed by subsequent conversion to DHT via the enzyme 17β-hydroxysteroid B3. The 5α-androstanedione pathway to DHT, therefore, bypasses testosterone entirely (1). Androstenedione → 5α-androstanedione → DHT. Also, "DHT formation from 4-dione (androstenedione) increased gradually and … Continue reading 46 ways to increase DHT (2018 update)

Threonine, an essential amino acid, which might not be so well known as some of the other amino acids, but it also plays an important part in health, well-being, anabolism, and fat loss. Threonine aids in maintaining/achieving a positive nitrogen balance where muscle growth can occur and is also is used in the formation of … Continue reading Threonine – essentially anabolic
