The all in one Test Booster from Iron Forged Nutrition utilizing N-methyl-d aspartic acid,vitamin d3, boron, stinging nettle extract, macuna pruiens and agmatine to deliver increased natural testosterone production, igf and gh release a total blend of nutrients for maximizing your natural levels or for bringing back your levels during PCT.
D-Aspartic Acid is incredibly popular as a testosterone booster — and for good reason, as studies have shown that a dose of 3000mg/day can dramatically increase testosterone levels in men. N-methyl D-Aspartate is simply a more powerful form of DAA: It appears to be 100 times more potent on an equimolar basis, and has a fundamentally-identical mechanism of action. Like DAA, it induces LH release and increases mRNA expression of the steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) — a protein which shuttles cholesterol into the mitochondria of steroidogenic cells, and which represents the first rate-limiting step in steroid biosynthesis.
Vitamin D represents another way to boost testosterone levels. Its mechanism of action has not been entirely elucidated, but seems to involve 17b-HSD induction. While not a rate-limiting step, increases in 17b-HSD enzyme activity should increase the rate of conversion of DHEA to androstenediol, and therefore speed-up testosterone biosynthesis.
Regardless of mechanism, it’s very clear that the stuff works: Vitamin D3 has been shown to increase testosterone levels in healthy adult males, and two recent studies have shown a correlation between serum Vitamin D levels and testosterone levels. Vitamin D may also improve muscle function and athletic performance. Given its many benefits, and its ability to potentially increase testosterone via a seemingly-unique mechanism.
Acute supplementation with 11.6mg of boron resulted in a significant increase in plasma boron concentration. Given such a fast bioavailability, the objective was to determine whether acute (hourly or daily), and weekly supplementation could have any significant biological effects on the steroid hormones and further on some inflammatory biomarkers. Eight healthy male volunteers attended the laboratory on three occasions (days 0, 1 and 7). On the first day (day 0), a blood sample collection at 8.00A.M was followed by ingestion of placebo with the breakfast. On the next day (supplementation-day 1), similar procedure was followed by ingestion of a capsule containing 10mg of boron. On both occasions blood was collected every 2h for the next 6h. Subjects were requested to consume a capsule of 10mg boron every day with their breakfast, and on the day 7, the blood collection was carried out at 8.00A.M, again. Boron in plasma increased significantly following hours and weekly consumption. Six hours supplementation showed a significant decrease on sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), high sensitive CRP (hsCRP) and TNF-α level. After one week (in samples taken at 8.00A.M, only), the mean plasma free testosterone increased and the mean plasma estradiol decreased significantly. Dihydrotestosterone, cortisol and vitamin D was elevated. Also, concentrations of all three inflammatory biomarkers decreased after supplementation. Of note, despite decreased proinflammatory cytokines, based on recent clinical data, this must be the first human study report to show an increase level of free testosterone after boron consumption.
Stinging Nettle Extract-
It should be a shame to boost testosterone, only to have it deactivated by SHBG. Urtica Dioica (Stinging Nettle) root extract contains (-)-3,4-divanillyltetrahydrofuran and numerous other inhibitors of SHBG. We use a full-spectrum aqueous extract, which will help ensure that more of the testosterone you produce is put to good use.
Mucuna pruriens, also known as Velvet Bean, is typically extracted for its l-dopa content. Mucuna pruriens extracted for l-dopa has many benefits, including maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and boosting both growth hormone and testosterone in humans. The effects of l-dopa on growth hormone levels are well documented, and it exerts these growth hormone boosting effects by stimulating the release of hypothalamic GHRH.Boosting growth hormone and testosterone can provide benefits in terms of energy, sex drive, and perhaps most important to the bodybuilder or strength athlete are its benefits of increased sleep quality and performance in the gym. More restful sleep due to increased growth hormone levels leads to improved recovery, and higher testosterone levels lead to improved gains in terms of both size and strength.
Agmatine sulfate appears to boost muscle pumps in a couple different ways. First, agmatine sulfate may improve nutrient partitioning, leading to more muscle glycogen carbohydrates stored in muscle tissue are stored and consequently more water retained in the muscle. This can lead to a full look to the muscle and increase muscle pumps. Second, agmatine sulfate also appears to increase nitric oxide production by acting as a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase. The nutrient partitioning effects of agmatine may be due to its possible ability to increase the insulin response to carbohydrates, and it may also have something to do with the increased blood flow to the muscle experienced with increased nitric oxide production. Agmatine sulfate may play a role in the hypothalamic control of luteinizing hormone and growth hormone release, leading to increased levels of these hormones.
