The Decline of Modern Testosterone
Testosterone is the undisputed king of anabolic hormones. It supports muscle protein synthesis, helps reduce fat, and helps to fuel healthy libido. It's no wonder hard-training males are obsessed with optimizing and maintaining its production.
Issue 1: Training-Induced Testosterone Depletion
There's nothing quite like that feeling of satisfaction once an extended bout of high intensity, muscle-pumping training is complete. After a grueling session of all-out performance, one simply "feels" like they are getting bigger. Overall, this may be true - as resistance training induced stress functions as a stimulus for hypertrophy (although the actual growth process takes time).
However, there is a potential downside to training with all-out intensity; compromised testosterone. Nindl et al. found Total Testosterone and Free Testosterone were -12 and 15% lower, respectively, after heavy resistance exercise up to 13 hours throughout the night in young, healthy men. These data are in agreement with the study of Kern et al., "who reported - 17 and -30% declines in overnight Total Testosterone concentrations after low- and moderate-intensity aerobic cycle exercise performed in the late afternoon.
Issue 2: Age-Induced Testosterone Depletion
The verdict is in; age and testosterone just can't seem to get along. Aging, as it turns out, is a major "enemy" of not only testosterone production, but in levels of bioavailable free testosterone. It's the "one-two punch in the gut" that strikes middle aged men with reduced muscle quality and lackluster libido.
The rate of decline of total testosterone varies among studies with a range of 0.5-1.6% decrease per year while free or bioavailable testosterone levels decrease by approximately 2-3% per year in middle age men. The reduction in free or bioavailable testosterone levels is larger because aging is also associated with increases in SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) levels, which decreases available free testosterone.
Even if you are a raging young stallion - enjoy your status while you can - the inevitable is sneaking up on you. Authoritative sources indicate that a man's total testosterone levels gradually decline with age - typically about 1 percent a year after age 30.
A Viable Solution: NO2 Red Test
NO2 Red Test - the scientific, MRI approach to naturally boosting testosterone levels. Through an impressive line-up of powerful, clinically tested ingredients, NO2 Red Test drives an incredible 98% increase in free testosterone. That's more available testosterone to do what it does best - total masculine support. Incredibly, NO2 Red Test targets the very source of testosterone production through a completely novel pathway. Even better, specialized ingredients help to drive muscle protein synthesis, feed nutrient "pumping" hemodilation, and fuel thermogenesis for optimal lean muscle development.
NO2 Red Test is more than a testosterone booster; it is an advanced formula that helps amplify what testosterone does best.
The Optimal Anabolic Environment
Emerging evidence suggests that some ingredients in NO2 Red Test may ignite Luteinizing Hormone (LH), which could result in a cascading chain of biological testosterone signaling. However, the power of NO2 Red Test extends beyond testosterone signaling alone to support levels of free testosterone.
Testosterone vs Free Testosterone
Before they go any further, let's take a moment to explore the difference between testosterone and free testosterone. Testosterone is carried in the circulatory system on specialized protein "carriers" called Sex Hormone Binding Globulins (SHBG). However, in order for testosterone to actually diffuse into cells to engage protein synthesis, it must become "free" of SHBG. Otherwise, SHBG-bound testosterone is of little value for muscle tissue. Therefore, there is a tremendous difference (particularly for the purpose of muscle support) between circulating testosterone and free testosterone. Free testosterone is the biologically active, usable form of testosterone required for supporting muscle growth. This is why boosting testosterone levels alone may not be enough to offer viable benefits. It's the free testosterone levels that really matter.
In a double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial of 60 healthy men age 18-35 years old, consumption of a daily divided dose of a key ingredient (found in NO2 Red Test) for 8 weeks, revealed that the levels of free testosterone (FT) were significantly Increased by 98% in the control group, which was double of the placebo. In the subjects who were treated with this compound, the concentration of free testosterone significantly increased.
That's impressive. In fact, let's just see that one more time. Free testosterone was significantly elevated (+98.7% after 8 weeks; double that of the placebo (48.83%) (2 fold better) using the supplementation.
As testosterone levels increase, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a contributor to male pattern baldness tends to spike. The culprit is an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. Laboratory research indicates a combination of saw palmetto, beta-sitosterol, ascorbic acid, and Milk Thistle - key ingredients in NO2 Red Test - may have an impact on the enzyme responsible for the conversion of testosterone to DHT.
Cutting edge research suggests that saw palmetto and beta-sitosterol may inhibit 5-alpha-reductase activity. Silibin, a component of milk thistle, can interact with the expression of genes that are regulated through the androgen receptor. Specifically, this compound down-regulates genes involved in prostate specific antigen (PSA) expression and does so in the presence of DHT, a known PSA promoter. This suggests that silibinin blocks the effects of DHT.
In summary, key ingredients in the NO2 Red Test formula may counter DHT on two fronts. First, the testosterone-to-DHT pathway may be blunted by countering the activity of 5-alpha reductase. Second, a component of milk thistle may actually block the effects of DHT.
A logical question is "What are nitric oxide technologies doing in a testosterone product?" Great question (if indeed you were contemplating that very topic). Answering that question requires asking another question, "What is the underlying reason why men seek optimal testosterone levels?" Isn't it to help pack on lean, strong muscle? That being the case, the end-all question is "Why wouldn't you incorporate the muscle-pumping power of nitric oxide-boosting technologies into an advanced testosterone-supporting product?"
NO2 Red Test is a highly advanced, multi-functional lean muscle supporter, powered by NO2 Core Technology. Here are the basics. L-Arginine, derived from three different sources, supports muscle-pumping hemodilation, muscle-repairing satellite cell activation, and mTOR gene activation for optimal protein synthesis support. The cardiovascular benefits of L-Arginine are further supported with a precise dose of Pinus pinaster - the fourth component of Quad-Core Hemodilation.
Engaging Protein Synthesis
A primary function of testosterone is to trigger the process of protein synthesis. In muscle cells, protein synthesis is what converts raw materials (amino acids) into viable proteins like actin and myosin. For guys who want to get bigger and stronger, it's all about feeding hypertrophy - the thickening of existing muscle fibers.
Here's the really exciting news; with key ingredients like L-Arginine and Zinc, muscle protein synthesis is an NO2 Red Test speciality.
For starters, L-arginine is a precursor to creatine that supports muscle protein synthesis Magnesium is an essential nutrient required for a number of steps during nucleic acid (DNA and RNA) and protein synthesis.
But that's not all. L-Arginine and zinc have been shown in experimental research to play a functional role in mTOR activation. mTor is a cellular "sensor" key to the launching of protein synthesis. An early signaling event activated by amino acids and growth factors in many cell types is the phosphorylation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR;FRAP), which is functionally linked to ribosomal protein s6 kinase (p70s6k), a kinase that plays a critical regulatory role in the translation of mRNAs and protein synthesis. Arginine (ARG) promotes mTOR/p70s6k activation, thereby stimulating protein synthesis and enhancing cell migration. Also, recent research shows that one of zinc's fundamental roles is to initiate protein synthesis through activating rapamycin (mTOR).
Let's bring the technical jargon down a notch or two with this simple message; NO2 Red Test is specifically formulated to help drive what you want most - muscle "feeding" protein synthesis.
Lean Mass Thermofuel
Becoming bigger, stronger and leaner is what it's all about. That's why NO2 Red Test incorporates powerful, metabolic-activating Green Tea extract. It is a clinically researched ingredient shown to help enhance fat loss. Loaded with potent catechins, Green Tea extract is the "thermo fuel" that fuels to accentuate "leaness" while you build your ultimate, lean physique with NO2 Red Test.
Emerging in vitro and in vivo research supports the ability of green tea and/or its components to decrease fat accumulation and suppress body fat and/or weight gain. Two additional controlled studies by the same group of researchers have found that green tea enriched with green tea extract resulted in a significantly greater decrease in body weight, waist circumference and fat mass with the other study also finding a decrease in waist circumference as well as a significant increase in adiponectin, a marker that is negatively correlated with visceral adiposity.
NO2 Red Test - The Final Word
NO2 Red Test is an innovative, scientific approach to boosting and sustaining free levels of testosterone. In fact, this dynamic formula features clinically tested ingredients shown to increase free testosterone by a whopping 98%. NO2 Red Test uniquely surpasses the competition by fueling testosterone production and lean mass development on 6 powerful fronts. NO2 Red Test leverages familiar ingredients like Tribulus terrestris to help engage the testosterone signaling mechanisms. Then key ingredients drive testosterone production "at the source" through a completely novel pathway; cholesterol-to-testosterone conversion. Simultaneously, DHT blockers help to maximize free testosterone availability while NO2 Core Technology helps to "switch on" mTOR activated muscle protein synthesis and satellite cell mobilization. Finally, a thorough dose of clinically tested Green Tea Extract supports a healthy body composition for a truly lean, strong, muscular physique.
Bottom line, NO2 Red Test is a scientific approach to supporting what testosterone does best - building and maintaining a lean, strong physique and a raging libido.
