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. There is a … Continue reading 25 ways to increase androgen receptors and enhance potency (2018 update)

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)

Uncoupling: Secret to Fat loss and Health

Uncoupling protein, aka thermogenin, are proteins found in the inner mitochondrial membrane of the cell. Protons generated in the Kreb cycle leave the mitochondria via the electron transport chain, and then re-enter the mitochondria via the ATPase enzyme for the synthesis of ATP. This is called coupled respiration. With uncoupled res piration, protons re-enter the … Continue reading Uncoupling: Secret to Fat loss and Health

57 ways to lower Serotonin, the depressing hormone

Serotonin is always thought of being the happy hormone and that by increasing it has an anti-depressant effect. As a matter of a fact, the majority of anti-depressants is selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, and more than 90% of the people on anti-depressant medication is on SSRI. Before SSRI became so popular, there were studies done … Continue reading 57 ways to lower Serotonin, the depressing hormone

Inhibit Aromatase: 31 Potent Supplements

Blocking the aromatase is crucial for decreasing estrogen, whether you have high testosterone or not. The less aromatase leaves more testosterone to bind with androgen receptors as well as to be converted to DHT via 5-AR (5 alpha reductase). High Estrogen symptoms include: Pelvic pain Night wakings and sweats (can't sleep through the night) Hot flashes … Continue reading Inhibit Aromatase: 31 Potent Supplements

Vitamin K2, pro-testosterone, anti-estrogen, joint repair

Vitamin K, the last fat soluble vitamin discovered, exerts unique and extremely important functions in the body. Vitamin K works in synergy with the other fat soluble vitamins, A, D and E. Although it's a fat soluble vitamin, the body cannot store large amounts of it, and it gets used up quite quickly. Hence, frequent … Continue reading Vitamin K2, pro-testosterone, anti-estrogen, joint repair

26 ways to increase free testosterone & lower SHBG

You want as much free testosterone as you can get so there can be optimal interaction with androgen receptors for optimal anabolic activity. So after testosterone leaves the testes and enters the bloodstream (that's total testosterone), about 44–65% of the circulating plasma T is bound strongly to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and 33–54% binds … Continue reading 26 ways to increase free testosterone & lower SHBG
