Testosterone boosters are sports nutrition and supplements that provide stimulation of muscle growth, increased strength and libido, as well as the prevention of male menopause and correction of the level of sex hormones. The effect of testosterone boosters is due to their ability to increase the production of natural testosterone. Most often, testosterone boosters are available in the form of sports nutrition or pharmacies.
The composition of boosters usually includes: natural and plant components, vitamins and, rarely, synthetic substances, which according to the claimed manufacturers have the ability to increase testosterone levels. However, the proof is completely ineffective, although sellers are used in bodybuilding.
Who is testosterone boosters like?
Testosterone boosters are usually men who seek to increase lean muscle mass. These additives are not recommended for use under the age of 20 years, and according to some sources 23. This is due to the fact that the young body has an extremely unstable hormonal system, in particular this applies to sex hormones. The use of boosters at a young age can disrupt this unstable system of hormonal metabolism. Young people have naturally elevated testosterone levels. In addition, taking added is not recommended to the girl in connection with the development of masculinization.
Rational use in people over 30 and even 40 years old, when the natural level of testosterone decreases depending on age, in this case, their use not only favorably affects muscle growth, but also enhances potency and libido.
In addition, testosterone boosters are great for PCT. After a cycle of steroid hormones or prohormones, it is advisable to drink 4 weeks of Tribulus terrestris-based booster. The booster allows you to mitigate the side effects associated with the abolition of steroid hormones, and maintain testosterone levels, thereby preventing muscle breakdown or the so-called “kickback” phenomenon.
Remember that all effects disappear. A decrease in muscle mass is possible, although not as pronounced as with the use of steroids.
The regimen of reception depends on the specific manufacturer. However, most often, boosters are taken 1 to 3 times a day immediately after a meal. The average cycle time is 4 weeks. It is recommended to combine with physical activity.
Combination and combination
For a good effect, testosterone boosters should be combined with the correct high-calorie diet, systematic strength training and additional sports nutrition. From sports nutrition, they have good potentiating effect and optimal compatibility with testosterone boosters:
Protein – to enhance muscle growth, 2-3 g of protein per kilogram of body weight is needed.
Creatine – 3-5 g taken orally 1 time per day. Also a great option is creatine with a transport system.
Vitamin-mineral complex – for the active growth of muscles requires a sufficient intake of vitamins and other essential substances.
This is the minimum list of sports supplements that are indicated for co-administration with boosters, in addition, you can simultaneously use BCAA, amino acid complexes, reducing agents, adaptogens and other additives.
It is not recommended to use testosterone boosters with prohormones, steroid hormones, 2 boosters cannot be combined.
The abuse of any means that affect the level of testosterone is fraught with dangerous complications. Prolonged use of testosterone boosters leads to a decrease in the body’s ability to produce enough testosterone on its own, as it gets used to taking the supplement on a regular basis. Thus, after the end of the intake, the body does not produce enough sex hormones, which leads to significant loss of muscle mass, depression, impotence and other problems.
The following side effects rarely occur during administration: aggressiveness and irritability, acne, fluctuations in blood pressure. Extremely rare: hair loss, gynecomastia, feminization, decreased secretion of testosterone, testicular atrophy.
If you take the supplement in prescribed doses and for an acceptable period of time, then side effects practically do not occur, however, there is no significant effect in relation to an increase in muscle mass.
Do not take testosterone boosters for heart disease, high blood pressure, or kidney failure. If any side effects occur, stop taking the supplement. Almost all side effects are completely reversible after withdrawal.
