What you are about to read is something that I wanted to develop as a business – as a supplement natural testosterone optimizing supplement line. That was some time ago. The way I feel right now is I am not going in the supplement business, so why not publish it here for free?…
Some years ago I had blood work done and when it came back my total serum and free testosterone levels were kinda low for a male my age. With my background in natural bodybuilding in this situation it was easy to really get fired up about thoroughly researching, and ultimately putting together all the information I could find on how to stimulate testosterone production naturally – by using certain supplements in certain doses – a testosterone-boosting stack.
I kept this work unpublished, and to be frank with you – not fully utilized by me, either. If I failed to take full advantage of it myself, why don’t you?
Here we go…
Testosterone Boosting Supplement Stack!
Recommended: Have a TESTOSTERONE blood test done before starting this stack to track the change of free and total plasma testosterone levels. Check total testosterone, free testosterone and SHBG.
Do the same at the end of the 8-week supplement cycle.
Here are the reference ranges from Arup labs:
Serum Testosterone [ng/dL]
14-15 yrs——–100 – 320
16-19 yrs——–200 – 970
60 and over ——350-720
Free Testosterone: 47 – 244 pg/mL
Percent free Testosterone: 1.6 – 2.9%
SHGB 11 – 80 nmol/L
Different labs have different reference ranges.
BEST TEST-BOOSTING SUPPLEMENT STACK AND DOSES:
Stinging nettle root extract 10:1
DOSE: 500 mg x 3 times daily (one of these doses about 30-60 minutes before workout)
Avena Sativa extract 20:1
DOSE: 300 mg x 3 times daily (one of these doses about 30-60 minutes before workout)
Pygeum 13-14% standardized extract
DOSE: 100 – 150 mg x 3 times daily (one of those doses about 30-60 minutes before workout)
Tongkat Ali (Long Jack) 1:50 extract minimum (1:200 best)
DOSE: 400 mg x 3 times daily for the 1:50 extract (one of those doses about 30-60 minutes before workout), OR 500 mg x 2 times daily for the 1:200 extract (one of those doses about 30-60 minutes before workout)
How to take for best results:
Adhere to a five-days-on/two-days-off regimen for eight weeks followed by a two-week break.
Combine all ingredients and take one dose 3 times equally spaced out throughout the day – one of these doses should be 30 – 60 minutes prior to your workout on w/o days.
HOW IT WORKS:
** BINDS TO SHBG: Stinging nettle root extract 10:1 Urtica dioica
Standardized to: scopoletin >30 ppm, B sitosterol >.8%, & amino acids >5%
** FREES UP TESTOSTERONE FROM SHBG: Avena Sativa – 20:1
With 7% Avenacosides A & B
** BLOCKS THE TESTOSTERONE BINDING EFFECT OF SHBG: Pygeum – 100 – 200 mg of 14% phytosterols standardized extract
** INCREASES LH AND INHIBITS SHBG: Long Jack /Eurycoma/ appears to directly enhance testosterone production by the Leydig’s cells of the testes. It frees testosterone from its carrier protein–sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG)–in blood. When testosterone is bound to SHBG, it is prevented from entering muscle cells. Eurycoma can help release testosterone from SHBG so it can bind to the receptors on muscle cells to induce growth. Research shows that it can lower SHBG by about 30% and increase testosterone levels markedly.
