Testosterone is the key male hormone and has been implicated in the development of many characteristics associated with masculine attributes, including the development of lean muscle mass in response to training. Amazingly, testosterone is made in the body from cholesterol, and when produced, it circulates through the body in the blood. What’s more, most testosterone circulating through your body is bound to proteins in the blood, such as sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG) and albumin.
However, there’s a small amount of testosterone that’s not bound to any protein. This is called free testosterone. It’s often considered the most “important” form of testosterone, because it’s the “free testosterone” that’s not bound to any protein which can readily interact with receptors in your muscles to trigger and support the musclebuilding biological process. Furthermore, when you add the amount of free testosterone in the body with the testosterone bound to proteins, you get what’s called total testosterone.1
Test HD® Elite – Your Testosterone Triple-Hit, Three-Point Formula
When you’re looking for a testosterone booster, you know that you’ve got a well-engineered product if it’s formulated to not only support your total testosterone, but also boost free testosterone. That’s where the research and development team at MuscleTech have you covered. They’ve developed a cutting-edge testosterone support formula called Test HD® Elite that delivers not just one, but three key testosterone support ingredients – all at doses clinically shown to trigger elevations in testosterone in healthy men within the normal, healthy range.
First, Test HD® Elite delivers a full dose of D-aspartic acid, which was shown in a clinical study to boost total testosterone by over 40% in just 12 days. Researchers in this study believe that D-aspartic acid works with the body’s natural signaling mechanisms to stimulate the production of testosterone.2 Secondly, Test HD® Elite delivers a clinical-strength dose of shilajit, a rare organo-mineral compound obtained from steep rocks of different formations found in the Himalayas and other high mountains. This form of shilajit has optimal levels of bioactive components such as fulvic acid and dibenzo-pyrones, and is known as the patented PrimaVie®. This powerful test-boosting compound was shown in a human clinical study to significantly increase total serum testosterone levels as documented after 90 days.3 What’s more, this same shilajit ingredient is studied and documented to boost adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels in the blood in just 15 days.4,5 ATP is the cellular energy used by the body and is real energy, unlike perceived energy that occurs with CNS stimulants. If that weren’t enough, Team MuscleTech researchers have engineered Test HD® Elite to boost free testosterone with a precise dose of the mineral boron, shown in human clinical research to increase active (free) testosterone in just 7 days.6
Combat Cortisol – The Key Catabolic Hormone
As the final icing on the cake, Test HD® Elite contains the cutting-edge botanical extract Sensoril® Ashwagandha, derived from an herb also known as Withania somnifera. This key ingredient is a powerful adaptogen that has been scientifically shown to significantly lower serum cortisol levels. In fact, in a double-blind, placebo-controlled human study published in the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association, researchers showed that after two months of supplementation with the exact dose found in Test HD® Elite, subjects experienced a significant decrease in cortisol levels.7 This is important to athletes, because cortisol is a catabolic hormone which could lead to protein breakdown within muscles, something you don’t want if you’re trying to improve your physique or physical performance.
Test HD – Testosterone Amplifier + Vitality
As you can clearly tell, Test HD® Elite is a well-rounded formula that’s engineered to deliver key ingredients scientifically shown to work with the body’s natural testosterone production mechanisms to support total and free testosterone, and even combat cortisol. In men, testosterone is key to supporting muscle, strength and vitality. You’ll also find zinc and many other popular ingredients sought after by men in the know. And because Test HD® Elite is engineered to work the body’s own mechanisms for supporting testosterone, there’s no need to cycle. With Test HD® Elite in your supplement arsenal, you’ll have what you need to reach your zenith and be the alpha-male you were meant to be!
