When you’re looking to get the most out your workout, you’ll want to start investigating workout supplements and nutrition products. In many cases, products like these might help you work out harder for longer and see longer-lasting results. At Axis Labs, we create high-quality workout supplements to help enhance your healthy lifestyle. Some of our best selling products are designed to help raise your levels of testosterone. Products like these are commonly referred to as testosterone boosters, but what exactly are they?
What is testosterone?
Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it’s important we take a step back and look at the very thing our product impacts. Testosterone is a naturally occurring hormone that is found in all humans, as well as other animals. In men and women, testosterone is produced by their primary sex organs, for men, that’s the testicles, and in women, that’s the ovaries. The body begins to produce testosterone during the years of puberty, and production begins to wane after age 30 or so.
Testosterone affects a variety of functions in the body. Generally, it is connected to sex drive and sperm production. That said, it also can affect bone and muscle mass and growth (1). Testosterone can also impact the fat that men store in their bodies, and it is connected to the production of blood cells. Testosterone levels can also affect someone’s mood. The testosterone levels in the body are controlled by the brain and pituitary gland (2).
So Why Would You Need It Boosted?
While a decrease in the production of testosterone is a natural part of the aging process, a decline in production can have an impact on the health of some people. When men are experiencing a period of low testosterone, they might experience:
- Decreased sex drive
- Erectile dysfunction
- Frequent feelings of fatigue
- Weight gain
- Feelings of depression
- A sense of low self-esteem
- Thinning body hair
- More delicate bones
When viewed in relation to your workout, your testosterone levels play a deciding factor in how you build and maintain muscle mass.
Low levels of testosterone can cause muscle loss, a process called muscle wasting. While muscle loss is perhaps the last, and most dramatic sign of low testosterone, until that point, you’ll likely feel more tired more easily, and feel like you aren’t as productive during your workouts as you once were. Your muscles are naturally prepared to accept testosterone thanks to receptors called androgen receptors. When these receptors bind with testosterone, the fibers that make up your muscles are maintained. When your body doesn’t produce as much testosterone, that maintenance begins to halt and the muscles begin to atrophy.
At the same time, low testosterone allows fat to begin to develop and build in the body, in particular around the stomach. Fat cells lead to the production of the aromatase enzyme. The enzyme converts testosterone into estrogen, which develops fat deposits in your chest, hips, and thighs (3). This, in turn, creates a cycle that keeps your muscles from regaining their mass, strength, and toned appearance. That’s because low testosterone and increased fat lead to fatigue and depression (4), which can prevent you from exercising, leading to increased weight gain, and more fat.
What are the boosters?
So the need for a balanced testosterone level, or even an increased level, is obvious. Without the proper amount of testosterone in your body, you’ll begin to see the fruits of your labor at the gym melt away. If you want your efforts to be rewarded with toned, strong muscles, you have to keep your testosterone levels up.
That’s where testosterone boosters, like HYPERTEST XTR from Axis Labs, come into play. These supplements are specifically designed to help you improve your testosterone levels.
What Do They Do?
At Axis Labs, we only use ingredients in our boosters that are proven to enhance the look and feel of your muscles and support your testosterone levels. Included in our HYPERTEST XTR testosterone booster are ingredients like:
- Zinc which stimulates gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which is important for healthy testosterone production.
- Magnesium increases testosterone secretion and improves the functioning of your musculoskeletal system.
- Vitamin B6 has been linked to your body’s ability to synthesize testosterone. Low levels of B6 can prevent your body from producing as much testosterone as you want.
- Ashwagandha has been connected to increased testosterone and sperm production and activity.
By creating a perfect balance of these ingredients, Axis Labs has created a product that can help you with your testosterone. When your testosterone levels are adequate, your workouts will be more productive, as your muscles are ready to be developed and strengthened. Your gains will be sustained, and you’ll be able to sport that cut, muscled look that you’re looking for.
