We are really excited about the new Muscle Sport product Andro Revolution. It combines two potent compounds, Fadogia Agrestis and D-Aspartic Acid. What is exciting about these two compounds is that when combined they can boost testosterone levels (naturally) to a greater extent than either could independently.
University studies show that Fadogia Agrestis has the ability to significantly increase testosterone by as much as six times that of a control group in a recent study. Studies on D-Aspartic Acid show it can increase testosterone over baseline by over 42%.
Fadogia Agrestis increases testicular cholesterol and D-Aspartic Acid increases the rate that cholesterol is converted into testosterone. Simply put where Fadogia leaves off D-Aspartic picks up.
Fadogia Agrestis is suggested to work through its ability to support an increase in the productiveness of the testis through increased testicular cholesterol – the building block and direct precursor of testosterone. Fadogia Agrestis is thought to naturally increase the sensitivity and production of the testis, which may result in an increase in both total and free testosterone, levels resulting in testosterone production cycles, which are higher and naturally occurring. No other natural or synthetic product on the market can replicate this!
D-aspartic acid has been shown to have some intriguing effects in several animal species and humans. D-aspartic acid has been shown to enhance gonadotropin releasing hormone from the hypothalamus as well as growth hormone and luteinizing hormone release from the pituitary. D-aspartic acid has also been shown to directly increase testosterone production by the testes. So, not only does d-aspartic acid cause the release of more testosterone but also the production of more testosterone. D-aspartic acid does this by increasing the levels of steroidogenic acute regulatory (StAR) protein.
StAR plays a critical role in the production of steroid hormones in the testes and adrenals. In fact, StAR mediates the rate-limiting step in steroid hormone production, the importation of cholesterol into the mitochondria. All steroid hormones are manufactured from cholesterol in the mitochondria and if cholesterol doesn’t get into the mitochondria, then steroid hormones, and more specifically, testosterone does not get produced. D-aspartic acid increases StAR which increases cholesterol entry into the mitochondria, which results in, increased testosterone production.
