Introducing RC Pensis™
TEST FACTOR™ is the first testosterone-support supplement in the world with RC Pensis™, patent-pending Ruta Chalepensis extract. Studies administering ruta chalepensis orally to male mice have demonstrated a 365-476% increase in serum testosterone levels. Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) was also increased by approximately 400%, while supplementation significantly increased testicular weight/volume and sperm count. There is presently no other dietary supplement ingredient available that has been shown to produce such strong changes in testosterone. Additional peer-reviewed studies suggest ruta chalepensis may improve the anabolic/anti-catabolic action of insulin, increase liver and muscle glycogen stores, and increase nitric oxide (NO) production for stronger erections and an enhanced “pump” effect during exercise.
ActeoFIT™is a new family of patent-pending herbal extracts standardized for the natural high-affinity Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM) ligand acteoside. There are dozens of studies supporting the use of acteoside and its source herbs in the field of sports nutrition. For example, one series of preliminary experiments with mice have demonstrated an increase in endurance during exercise, along with inhibited creatine kinase and improved glycogen stores. This may translate to better performance, along with preserved muscle mass and energy (glycogen is the primary source of fuel during exercise). Further still, hyperplasia and hypertrophy of muscle cell mitochondria were observed without damage to the myofibril. This may support muscle fiber growth (size and number), along with a significant anti-catabolic (protein sparing) effect.
TEST FACTOR™ Helps:
- Increase testosterone, reduce estrogen
- Increase muscle mass and strength
- Improve muscle endurance
- Speed recovery
- Reduce reaction time
- Improve libido
- Increase vascularity
- Improve memory and cognition
