A special group of promoters, providing an increased level of testosterone in the body or prevent its unwanted transformation. Testosterone - the male hormone responsible for muscle growth and performance of sexual organs. However, testosterone plays an important role in maintaining the health of women! In particular, he is responsible for regulating the ratio of fat and muscle mass (body composition). It is known that the best "machine" to burn fat are the muscles, so building and maintaining muscle mass - a way to slim figure. With age, the female body production of testosterone decreases as well as in men. The result is usually a loss of muscle mass and increase body fat, not to mention lowering the sex drive. In addition, testosterone has neyrostimuliruyuschim action, and its deficiency can decrease mental function, develop depression. It should be noted that testosterone is most effective at an optimal ratio of estrogen, so the excessive abuse of its level leads to increased irritability, temper, aggression and, in addition to increased appetite and formation of fatty deposits in the waist. Therefore, dosage testosterone boosters should be approached with the necessary responsibility.
According to the method of testosterone boosters are divided into three groups:
- Precursors of testosterone - the steroid prohormones dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), androstenedione, and others, who themselves are included at some stage in the metabolic chain of production of testosterone by the body and provide increased its level is almost a natural way and is currently banned for prohormones available for sale;
- Bollards - Ipriflavon, indole-3-carbinol, etc., which suppress the unwanted conversion of testosterone (aromatization) or by directing the conversion of harmless way;
- Activators of testosterone synthesis, increasing the production of this hormone by the body.
Tribulus terrestris - a plant that is common in many countries with tropical and temperate climates. Tribulus Terrestris is widely used traditional medicine of the Balkan countries, India and China. He has been actively studied since the 1970's in Bulgaria and has been used in the preparation of Olympic athletes.
Tribulus Terrestris contains many biologically active substances - saponins, flavonoids, alkaloids, whose content depends strongly on the place of growth of the plant. The highest concentration of these substances - in the leaves, so in traditional medicine tribulus is often used in tea form. Found that the most important active ingredients are Tribulus Saponins and sapogenins (plant steroid compounds), and above all - protodioskin. Studies have shown that Tribulus Terrestris stimulates increased production of the body of luteinizing hormone (LH), which, in turn, causes an increase (50%) testosterone production. Testosterone in the body of both men and women responsible for the growth of muscles and bones, reproductive organs work and sexual desire, affect the ratio of fat and muscle mass in the body (in favor of the muscles). With age, testosterone (as well as growth hormone) is reduced, so the use of Tribulus over the age of 40 gives a significant anabolic effect in strength training and helps maintain muscle mass and prevent obesity.
Tribulus Terrestris has a positive effect on the body are many other ways, including support for the cardiovascular system, but we will focus only on the above. Side effects of tribulus have not been established, the impact on the production of testosterone-mediated, with no risk of hyperstimulation. So, taking Tribulus Terrestris increases the intensity of protein synthesis, promotes faster recovery after exercise, muscle growth, increases the potency.
