  1. Exclamation Nail down cortisol and blast GH & testosterone through the roof with EndoAmp Max



    AM Members,

    We are proud to announce the new EndoAmp Max!

    Weve added Alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine (A-GPC) which is a very cool molecule that increases the synthesis and release acetylcholine in the brain. Acetylcholine has been found to enhance growth hormone (GH) release from growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) stimulation.

    Each serving of EndoAmp Max has a hefty 600mg dose of A-GPC which has been proven to boost GH in resistance trained men after a single oral serving. (1,2) A-GPC has been proven to amplify GH release up to 140%!

    EndoAmp Max also contains 800mg of Phosphatidylserine (PS) per serving. PS has repeatedly shown to prevent the rise in cortisol following exercise, while supporting testosterone levels and improving recovery. (3-8)



    Human research shows that EndoAmp Max can offer the following benefits –

    • Improve the testosterone to cortisol ratio up to 3,354% (3-6)
    • Amplify GH levels following exercise (1,2)
    • Increase resistance to stress & fatigue (6)
    • Increase exercise capacity (1,7)
    • Speed recovery & reduce muscle soreness (6-8)
    • Enhanced sense of well-being (6-8)

    Get EndoAmp Max now, directly from Primordial Performance


    Yours in health & fitness,

  16. I just got word that another study is underway for this summer... Its going to be analyzing PS and its effects on hormones in athletes. I think its really great PS is finally getting noticed as a worthy testosterone support supplement.

  25. BTW, I just got a PM from a women asking if this is safe... and the answer is yes... this product is safe for men and women.

  26. Is there ANY evidence at all that shows that these changes will result in ANY additional muscle mass? I SERIOUSLY doubt they will - no offense......just my educated opinion. The minor increase in test and slight decrease in cortisol is virtually meaningless in real world experience. Also NO GH supplement has EVER raised gh to levels high enough or for a duration long enough to make a damn bit of difference. Again JMO AND facts......
    Oh and doesnt cortisol regulate important bodily functions such as blood pressure and others? Do we really want to mess with that ?
    Oh and also shouldnt this be in the company promotions section? Just wondering?

  27. I believe new product announcements are allowed here, hence the thread. Also you seem to have an issue with PP judging by the tone of you post.

    Also for it to be an educated opinion, it might help to support your claims with links to studies.
    Also I'm sure most people are aware of the natural functions of cortisol; it's in our bodies for a reason.

    EndoAmp doesn't eradicate it; it regulates cortisol release which is increased by exercise and also from the stress of daily life. There are plenty of articles out there, such as this one, that show stressed individuals have higher cortisol levels/enhanced CRF responses which has marked effects on obesity

    i have no issue whatsoever with this particular manufacturer. Again ill ask:
    Is there ANY evidence at all that shows that these changes will result in ANY additional muscle mass? I SERIOUSLY doubt they will - no offense......just my educated opinion. The minor increase in test and slight decrease in cortisol is virtually meaningless in real world experience. Also NO GH supplement has EVER raised gh to levels high enough or for a duration long enough to make a damn bit of difference. Again JMO AND facts......
    Also rather than control our bodyfat with diet and exercise we would chose to lower levels of an essential hormone that regulates some of our most important bodily responses? Surely common sense dictates that isnt prudent. As far as providing studies i believe i asked for some to be provided to back claims made ...my statements are well know facts established over years of real life and real world experience by thousands...isnt that enough? My goodness you could take cytadren and a serm and increase test and decrease cortisol more than this product and get no increased muscle growth. Why waste my money on this? Again JMO... Oh and the GH info ..known fact my statement is...

    Steve - You're entitled to your opinion, however i haven't witnessed you substantiate anything significant in your claims here either. Facts? Lol - What facts exactly? It's obvious by your response that you really don't even understand what the formulation is, or even how it works. In fact, based on your response, i'm not even sure you read the write-up.

    This product is NOT designed to crush cortisol outside the therapeutic window; it's designed to mitigate erratic fluctuations in serum cortisol levels (which can and will have more detrimental effects than benefits). These fluctuations occur in our everyday normal life as a result of physical and/or mental stess factors. We've never painted cortisol evil, and we never will....because it isn't. However, there are measures that can be taken to help limit the negative effects such as i've described above.



    There are PLENTY of references posted at the bottom of our write-up, so feel free to look them over before you come in here making accusations without any support for your statements.


    Meaningless real world results, eh? You base this on what exactly? Your own experiences? Here's all those well documented references that must have been on oversight on your part.


    Happy reading, and let me know if you have any questions.

    *L* Again ill reiterate ..still my question is unanswered:

    i have no issue whatsoever with this particular manufacturer. Again ill ask:
    Is there ANY evidence at all that shows that these changes will result in ANY additional muscle mass? I SERIOUSLY doubt they will - no offense......just my educated opinion. The minor increase in test and slight decrease in cortisol is virtually meaningless in real world experience. Also NO GH supplement has EVER raised gh to levels high enough or for a duration long enough to make a damn bit of difference. Again JMO AND facts......
    Also rather than control our bodyfat with diet and exercise we would chose to lower levels of an essential hormone that regulates some of our most important bodily responses? Surely common sense dictates that isnt prudent. As far as providing studies i believe i asked for some to be provided to back claims made ...my statements are well know facts established over years of real life and real world experience by thousands as well as by science...isnt that enough? My goodness you could take cytadren and a serm and increase test and decrease cortisol more than this product and get no increased muscle growth. Why waste my money on this? Again JMO... Oh and the GH info ..known fact my statement is...
