Can anybody comment on the effectiveness of this in a 36 yrold male.
It forms one of the active ingredients in ArimaPro by Chaparral Labs. All Natural apparently.
Testosterone Enhancing and Estrogen Management Formula
Chaparral Labs ArimaPro is designed to supercharge natural testosterone production through a number of powerful compounds, making it ideal for those who want to speed recovery through OTC PCT or use as part of a standalone natural testosterone boosting cycle for additional strength and mass.
What's included and why?
Agaricus Bisporus Extract - strengthens the immune system, improves lung conditions, lowers cholesterol, increases proliferation of bone marrow, improves blood flow to the heart, enhances liver functions as well as normalizing irregular heart beat.
Androst-3,5-dien-7,17-dione - a naturally occurring metabolite of 7-oxygenated DHEA, which unlike DHEA does not have the capability of converting to estrogen and will not bind androgen receptors. In addition to preventing estrogen conversion ADD also serves as a cortisol inhibitor, thus reducing the unwanted catabolic effect of this hormone. The result is an ideal environment for quality muscle growth. These 7-oxygenated compounds do this by flipping between the oxygenated and reduced versions of themselves on the enzyme that converts inactive cortisone to active cortisol, the 11-beta-HSD1 enzyme. While these conversions are taking place cortisone cannot convert to cortisol, this decreases the amounts of cortisol in the blood. This is the mechanisms that most of the popular cortisol reducers undergo.
3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran - has a high affinity for sex hormone-binding globulin (SHGB), which typically binds to sex hormones. By attaching to SHGB there is no regulation of the amount of active hormone in the body, thus allowing the increase in free testosterone.
Indole-3-Carbinol - is metabolized into Diindolymethane (DIM), which is a phytochemical that has been scientifically proven to reduce the risk of prostate and other hormone driven cancers. DIM produces a highly active metabolis m of estrogen, unmetabolized estrogen levels fall and the 2-hydroxy-estrogens increase. 2-hydroxy-estrogens are unique in that they possess the ability to release bound testosterone from SHGB. Therefore, the combined effect of DIM to reduce unmetabolized estrogen and increase 2-hydroxy-estrogens can reduce elevations in SHGB and allow for an influx in free unbound testosterone. Both of these changes help maintain and restore a youthful balance between estrogen and free testosterone, which is a balance that is crucial to a healthy and active metabolism.
Icariin Extract - a natural PDE-5 inhibitor, which is an enzyme responsible for erectile dysfunction. By inhibiting this enzyme the production and release of nitric oxide can occur resulting in increased blood flow and sexual performance.
