I know we are all used to hearing the same few ingredients discussed with regards to natural testosterone enhancement, but there is one product I particularly respect and have enjoyed that is not usually brought into these discussions... it is not Divanil, Forskolin ext., nor Fenotest like as in our Phyto-Testosterone product... this works on improving the test to cortisol ratio which is crucial for intense training athletes... best of all, this has as much or more studies backing it compared to the others.
EndoAmp Max with potent Phosphatidylserine dosing of 800mg in a 1600mg Phospholipid Complex blend known as SerinAid.
Our company thread:
How does it support testosterone production?
The active ingredient phosphatidylserine (PS) prevents the exercise induced cortisol spike, and is a vital nutrient that supports testicular function and testosterone production. (11,37) Each serving of EndoAmp Max includes a clinically proven dose of 800mg of PS.
A recent study examined the effects of 10 days of 600mg/day PS supplementation on testosterone and cortisol during and after exercise. (37) The researchers found that PS supplementation increased testosterone 78% over the placebo group, while completely blunting the cortisol response to exercise. When analyzed for the testosterone to cortisol (T:C) ratio and compared to placebo, the PS group had a 3,354% higher T:C!
In another human study, hormone levels where examined during two weeks of intense weight training. The group receiving the 800mg of PS had higher testosterone levels and lower cortisol levels, compared to the group receiving the placebo. (11) Another study showed that 800mg of PS reduced cortisol levels 30% (compared to the placebo group) after intense cycling exercise. (21)
It?s been hypothesized that PS supplementation minimizes cortisol secretion by providing the necessary phospholipids required for cellular membrane structure and regulatory functions, thus reducing the requirement for bodily breakdown and nutrient displacement. (17,25,36,40)
Research also suggests that PS supports testosterone production by increasing the testes sensitivity to luteinizing hormone (LH) and increases testicular steroidogenesis - aka the creation of testosterone. (1-11, 19-26)
Take this quote from Cooke et al (1989) about the important role of PS in the testes:
"The requirement for specific phospholipid configurations for optimal steroidogenic activity suggests a regulatory role for these membrane components. It is possible that certain phospholipids [phosphatidylserine] may possess the most suitable configuration and charge distribution to optimize the binding of the steroid substrate to the active site of the enzyme. Alternatively, they may assist the catalysis by providing a more suitable microenvironment or electrochemical gradient for proton transfer between enzyme and steroid."?
In other words, EndoAmp Max creates a more conducive environment for testosterone synthesis in the testes by mitigating the damaging effects from cortisol and supplying the testes with the necessary phospholipids for testicular function.
I really think it is worth trying EndoAmp by itself or alongside another test booster such as BioForge, Phyto-Testosterone, Activate Xtreme or MassFx.
I haven't even gotten into the the numerous physical and mental benefits of A-GPC (Alpha-Glycerylphosphorylcholine) which is also included in EndoAmp Max. Both ingredients (PS and A-GPC) have been dosed according to the scientific literature, not included in a prop. blend with some fairy dust sprinkles.
