Syntheroid | Testosterone and Libido Booster

Testosterone is an essential hormone for the muscle building process.
It promotest protein synthesis and the growth of protein tissues with receptors. Its anabolic effects in building more bone and muscle mass allows testosterone to play a vital role in the growth of muscle mass and increased strength.

All together, testosterone plays a pivotal role for muscle tropism in which this hormone will play and important role in replenishing muscle tissue and fiber broken down during workouts. Hence, testosterone is vital for those looking to increase muscle mass, strength, and to improve muscle tone and definition.

With higher levels of testosterone, you’ll be ready to dominate your workout!

Higher testosterone levels help promote protein synthesis and muscle growth, higher metabolism, increased bone density and strength, and may have a positive effect on your sexual well-being!

Tribulus Terrestris: An all-natural compound that delivers powerful results. Not only is this added to help you boost your libido, as it has been used for hundreds of years, but it is also added to increase your stamina, and to increase your sexual desire. This means that you will enjoy the activity more as well as be able to last longer.

D Aspartic Acid: Recent studies have shown a significant raise in testosterone levels. This amino acid was the subject of a published scientific study that has been isolated in human and rat subjects to test its effect on testosterone levels. This published report showed the increases in synthesis and release of testosterone and cAMP. This amino acid has the role of regulating and even producing testosterone within the body!

FenuSterols: This trademarked and patent pending testosterone boosting ingredient is based off the powerful fenugreek seed and standardized to 50% steroidal saponins. The steroidal substances based in FenuSterols were confirmed in 1919 and the Steroidal Saponins in Fenusterols are called furostanol saponins. They have been shown to have an anabolic effects leading to increased muscle mass, strength and improve athletic performance. It can also help boost testosterone and improve metabolism as well.

Eurycoma Longifolia: A flowering plant found in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos, this extract is also known as Long Jack. It takes the levels of IGF1 in your system to another level. In Malaysia it is commonly known as a symbol of the ego and strength of a man which fits it just right. Not only will your athletic performance increase but the levels of testosterone in your body will go up as well as stop SHBG from sticking to your testosterone. This ingredient also keeps your estrogen levels low and free testosterone levels high as your body gains the strength and definition it needs for your muscle as well as keep your immune system at its best. A couple of added benefits are that this extract will shrink away your fat, keep you from fatigue, and stop your body from becoming exhausted.

Horny Goat Weed: This is a powerful herb that has been added to enhance your sexual desire and provide you with more energy. This will enable you to boost your endurance and stamina even further and increase your enjoyment of the bedroom experience.

Super Human Radio Podcast #464 - Study Shows The Fastest Way To Build Muscle


Resistance exercise biology: manipulation of resistance exercise programme variables determines the responses of cellular and molecular signalling pathways.


Human Performance Laboratory, Department of Kinesiology, University of Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut 06269, USA.


Recent advances in molecular biology have elucidated some of the mechanisms that regulate skeletal muscle growth. Logically, muscle physiologists have applied these innovations to the study of resistance exercise (RE), as RE represents the most potent natural stimulus for growth in adult skeletal muscle. However, as this molecular-based line of research progresses to investigations in humans, scientists must appreciate the fundamental principles of RE to effectively design such experiments. Therefore, we present herein an updated paradigm of RE biology that integrates fundamental RE principles with the current knowledge of muscle cellular and molecular signalling. RE invokes a sequential cascade consisting of: (i) muscle activation; (ii) signalling events arising from mechanical deformation of muscle fibres, hormones, and immune/inflammatory responses; (iii) protein synthesis due to increased transcription and translation; and (iv) muscle fibre hypertrophy. In this paradigm, RE is considered an 'upstream' signal that determines specific downstream events. Therefore, manipulation of the acute RE programme variables (i.e. exercise choice, load, volume, rest period lengths, and exercise order) alters the unique 'fingerprint' of the RE stimulus and subsequently modifies the downstream cellular and molecular responses.

Aegis Liver Protection by Antaeus Labs - TUDCA

Tauroursodeoxycholic 125MG
Polyenylphosphatidylxholine 300MG
Vitamin b6 5MG
Serving 1 Capsule

ADVANCED CYCLE SUPPORT Rx™by Iron Mag Labs not just for juicers and gear guys.

The ingredients in this concoction are just plain great for the body.


This product contains 7 key ingredients for a complete 'on cycle' protection and support. Per 2 Capsules.

1. Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum) 500MG - One function of the liver is to detoxify and remove toxins, including heavy metals and chemotherapy, from the body. Milk thistle is a liver protective. It is an antioxidant that helps repair damaged liver cells. Studies have shown evidence that silymarin acts almost solely on the liver and kidney. The antioxidant properties in silymarin are believed to be the protective factors. Laboratory studies demonstrate that silymarin functions as a potent antioxidant, stabilizes cellular membranes, stimulates detoxification pathways, stimulates regeneration of liver tissue, inhibits the growth of certain cancer cell lines, exerts direct cytotoxic activity toward certain cancer cell lines.

2. NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) 400MG - NAC can help to prevent damage to the liver being a powerful anti-oxidant and cell detoxification co-factor, NAC works to eliminate your body of free radicals and heavy metals. N-Acetyl-Cysteine is currently the dietary supplement of choice for building up cysteine or conserving the body's store of Glutathione, Cysteine and other Sulfhydryl anti-oxidant resources. This is very crucial for the body's life functions, as NAC helps the body neutralize toxins, heavy metals, such as mercury.

3. Hawthorne Berry 108% extract 300MG- is highly recognized herb for the heart and cardiovascular system. It has the ability to dilate (enlarge or open) the coronary arteries (the vessels that supply blood to the heart), thus improving blood and oxygen supply to the heart muscle. It also strengthens the hearts pumping ability (muscle), helping the heart to beat more forcefully and efficiently. In addition, hawthorne appears to dilate the highways of other blood vessels around the body, thereby allowing blood to circulate more freely with less strain on the heart. Another benefit of hawthorne berry is that it harbors potent antioxidant properties, which are believed to exert cholesterol lowering effects and reduce the accumulation of fatty plague in the arteries – the hallmark of atherosclerosis.

4. Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) 45% extract 200MG - is used popularly in Europe for symptoms associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of the prostate). Although not considered standard of care in the United States, it is the most popular herbal treatment for this condition. Saw palmetto was listed in the United States Pharmacopeia from 1906 to 1917 and in the National Formulary from 1926 to 1950. Saw palmetto extract is a licensed product in several European countries. Multiple mechanisms of action have been proposed, and saw palmetto appears to possess 5-?-reductase inhibitory activity (thereby preventing the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone). Hormonal/estrogenic effects have also been reported, as well as direct inhibitory effects on androgen receptors and anti-inflammatory properties.

4. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) 100MG - boosts energy, enhances the immune system, and acts as an antioxidant. Clinical research suggests that using coenzyme Q10 supplements alone or in combination with other drug therapies and nutritional supplements may help prevent or treat some of the following conditions: Heart disease, High blood pressure and High cholesterol. Researchers believe that the beneficial effect of CoQ10 in the prevention and treatment of heart disease is due to its ability to improve energy production in cells, inhibit blood clot formation, and act as an antioxidant. Several clinical studies involving small numbers of people suggest that CoQ10 may lower blood pressure. Levels of CoQ10 tend to be lower in people with high cholesterol compared to healthy individuals of the same age.

5. Celery Seed Extract 6:1 concentrate 75MG- 3nB is the active compound that is unique to celery. 3nB was discovered as the active component of celery in response to investigations by researchers seeking to explain some of the medicinal effects of celery including the lowering of blood pressure and the relief of arthritis. High blood pressure is usually the result of too much fluid there is in your blood and how flexible or resistant your blood vessels are. Retention of sodium (salt) leads to increase fluid volume in the blood while hardening of the arteries and the hormones released during stress lead to loss of flexibility or constriction of blood flow. In treating high blood pressure, doctors usually prescribed diuretics (water pills) to reduce the fluid volume and vasodilators to relax the arteries to reduce the resistance of blood flow or beta-blockers to turn down the pumping action of the heart. 3nB appears to help lower blood pressure by both acting as a diuretic and vasodilator through impacting the production of prostaglandins as well as acting in a similar manner to drugs known as calcium-channel blockers. 3nB has also been shown to lower blood cholesterol levels and reduce the formation of arterial plaque in experimental studies. This effect may increase the elasticity of the blood vessels and also lead to lower blood pressure readings. 3nB also appears to promote some effects on areas and systems of the brain that control vascular resistance.

6. Grape Seed Extract 95% extract 75MG- is a natural plant substance that has a concentrated source of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC). These anti-oxidants help protect cells from free radical damage and also promotes healthy circulation. Grape Seed Extract is rich in polyphenols, a compound that's high in antioxidants. Studies have shown OPC to be more powerful antioxidants than vitamin C, E, and beta-carotene. There are countless studies that demonstrates the many health benefits of grape seed extract. It has been extensively researched across the globe. In the research of Dr. Jacques Masquelier et al., the Pasteur & Huntington Institutes and 7 other leading Universities in Europe, Grape Seed Extract has been shown exceptionally effective fighting against free radicals in the body.

Universal Nutrition Atomic 7 - 4 grams of leucine per serving: Leucine is King

This maybe the perfect amino acid muscle building formula and a awesome price!

Leucine is the key to the stimulation of protein synthesis which simply means building muscle protein. Isoleucine and Valine support leucine and make up the BCAAs. This formula gives you the 4 grams recommended by Layne Norton for jumpstarting the mTOR pathway to muscle building.

Isoleucine - prevents muscle protein deterioration during exercise.

Valine - fuel for muscle building reactions and used in muscle protein synthesis

Glutamine helps support the digestive system, immune system, growth hormone production, muscle building and muscle glycogen stores. Speeding recovery and sparring muscle.

Citrulline Malate converts to arginine then nitric oxide in the body and also allows the detoxification of ammonia. Malate is a key controller of aerobic ATP production rates. Combined, these two promote immense benefits. Active individuals may enjoy added energy production in aerobic exercise and decreased muscle soreness.

Taurine - pulls fluid in the muscle expanding the tissue creating greater potential for growth.

More Muscle - Nutrient Partioning with Berberine - It has been compared to Metformin

Amazing Nutrition Berberine Plus 500 mg 120 Capsules - Supports immune system - Supports glucose metabolism - Aid in healthy weight management

Berberine is a chemical found in several plants including European barberry, goldenseal, goldthread, Oregon grape, phellodendron, and tree tumeric.

Berberine sends more nutrients to muscle and less to fat storage. This not only would be beneficial to bodybuilding but to anyone looking to store less fat, lose weight or control blood sugar.

Bodybuilders have traditionally handled this by staying low and slow carbohydrate the majority of the day with the exception of post workout. Fast or high glycemic carbs are only allowed post workout.

Healthy N Fit Nutritionals Advanced Steroidal Complex contains HMB, Tribulus and 7-Keto

Beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyrate (HMB)
This metabolite of leucine has been shown to benefit muscle recovery and growth in as little as 3 grams per day.

Tribulus terrestris
Boosts your body's production of testosterone leading better gains in muscle mass and strength. Protodioscin, the active ingredient, increases secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland. LH directly stimulates the testicles to produce testosterone.

7-keto DHEA
is a natural metabolite of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) that does not convert to testosterone or estrogen. It stimulates thyroid hormone production increasing metabolism helping you make lean gains.

Healthy 'N Fit Nutritionals GH Enhancers: The Growth Hormone Booster that Definitely Worth Trying

In a double-blind study, adult males participating in a 5-week progressive strength-training program who consumed 2 grams of L-arginine and 1 gram of L-ornithine experienced significantly higher total strength and lean body mass scores and excreted less urinary hydroxyproline than placebo-treated subjects.
