All hail the new king of natural test products Test Factor
The completely revamped TEST FACTOR will be hitting store shelves in just a matter of days!
Maximum Potency Testosterone Booster
Sub-optimal testosterone can make your work much harder, and goals more difficult to achieve. Peak hormone levels, on the other hand, can supercharge your gains. TEST FACTOR™ was formulated by the acclaimed research & development team at Molecular Nutrition with two clear goals in mind. First, to support maximum increases in serum total and free testosterone levels, surpassing previous benchmarks. Second, to create a formula that goes beyond the standard T-boosting effects of this category, supporting a wide range of action including increased protein synthesis rates, reduced muscle catabolism, extended muscle endurance, enhanced recovery, and heightened libido/sexual potency. The resulting formula includes some of the most effective bioactive compounds known to sports science, and represents a major step forward in hormonal support supplementation!
TEST FACTOR Helps:
Increase Total and Free Testosterone
Increase Muscle Mass & Strength
Improve Muscle Endurance
Preserve Muscle Mass (Anti-Catabolic)
Speed Muscle Recovery
Support Libido & Sexual Function
Key Ingredients Include:
Sarcosine (N-methylglycine): An amino acid found naturally in the body, sarcosine plays an important role in the biosynthesis of testosterone. It is believed to act primarily by supporting N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) neurotransmission. Sarcosine supports the activity of NMDA in two ways. First, it is a competitive inhibitor of the type I glycine transporter (GlyT1). This reduces glycine uptake into cells, increasing its availability for synaptic NMDA receptors. Second, sarcosine has been shown to be a ligand for the NMDA receptor itself, acting as a co-agonist at the glycine binding site. NMDA is directly involved in hypothalamic GnRH synthesis, which in turn increases the output of gonadotropic hormones, and ultimately testosterone.
AlivEL® 100 Ultimate: Eurycoma longifolia (also known as tongkat ali) has been shown in placebo-controlled studies to increase testosterone levels by 37% in men. It has also been shown to reduce cortisol by 16%, which is a stress hormone that can break down (catabolize) muscle tissue. These beneficial effects are mediated by a series of bioactive components in the plant, of which eurycomanone is believed to be the most important. High quality eurycoma longifolia extracts are standardized for their eurycomanone content, with 1% being the previous high mark. The new high-potency extract in Test Factor™ contains TWICE that concentration, a remarkable 2% eurycomanone.
PrimaVie™: This part of the Test Factor™ formula is a special high potency extract of Shilajit, an organo-mineral found in the Himalayan mountain region. The main bioactive component of shilajit is believed to be fulvic acid, an organic polymer. Clinical studies on adult infertile men found that 200mg of shilajit per day (containing 54.8% fulvic acid) for 90 days increased testosterone levels by 23.5% (from 4.85ng/mL to 5.99ng/mL). This level of supplementation was also shown to reduce blood glucose by 6.8%, suggesting other potential metabolic improvement. Test Factor™ exclusively uses PrimaVie™ high potency shilajit extract, which contains a minimum of 60% fulvic acid.
ActeoFIT™: A specialized blend of two herbal extracts, rehmannia glutinosa and cistanche deserticola. Several studies suggest the components of this blend may support exercise performance. One series of preliminary experiments with mice demonstrated an increase in exercise endurance, along with inhibited creatine kinase and improved glycogen stores. This may translate to better performance, along with preserved muscle mass and energy. Another similar set of experiments found hyperplasia and hypertrophy of muscle cell mitochondria, but without damage to the myofibril. This suggests possible benefits for muscle fiber growth, including an anti-catabolic (protein sparing) effect.

Soooooo looking forward to getting in on this and stacking it with a future ARA run. Hopefully Nutra will be getting it in stock soon!
