While most bodybuilders and athletes understand the importance of testosterone and how it relates to the process of muscle growth, increasing test levels to the point that it will help you build mass and increase strength is not as easy as it might seem. This is where M-Test by Competitive Edge Labs comes in.
M-Test is a comprehensive natural testosterone booster that utilizes only patented, clinically proven ingredients at full clinical dosing along with proven supporting ingredients that enhance the formula’s effectiveness. M-Test promotes lean muscle growth, increased strength, increased power output, improved endurance, and enhanced sex drive.
M-Test – A Multi-Faceted Approach to Increased Testosterone Production
Providing increased levels of testosterone that the body can use is not as simple as merely increasing testosterone production because there are limiting factors regarding how much of these increased levels are available and usable by the body. You see, it’s not just the total amount of testosterone your body can produce that’s important, it’s the total amount of usable, or free testosterone your body can make available for muscle growth. The amount of usable, or free testosterone is minuscule in comparison to the amount of total testosterone – approximately 2%, in fact, is free or available to be used for muscle growth. The trick is getting the absolute maximum of that estimated 2%. There’s more – for optimal results, you must also inhibit destructive hormones that can derail the process of muscle growth. This is the reason M-Test incorporates a Multi-Faceted approach to promoting testosterone production. M-Test contains a very specific combination of active ingredients that promote increases in testosterone through multiple pathways.
These pathways include:
- Increases in Levels of Total Testosterone
- Increases in Levels of Free testosterone
- Increases in Luteinizing Hormone (LH)
- Decreases in Levels of Cortisol
- Decreases in Levels of Estrogen
By approaching the challenge of increasing usable testosterone levels through several different pathways, the M-Test formula provides a comprehensive approach to promoting testosterone production.
M-Test - What It IS and What It ISN’T
M-Test is NOT one more of those “kitchen sink” test boosters that contain low dosages and a lot of hype but fall short on the most important thing – results! M-Test uses only specific clinical dosing of proven active ingredients as part of a full spectrum approach to increasing testosterone production – our goal with M-Test was to give you with the most effective, most comprehensive natural testosterone support formula on the market!
Fadogia Agrestis PE – This is an herb originating in Africa that has been used for hundreds of years as a male aphrodisiac and has been shown in preliminary animal research to significantly increase testosterone levels and enhance sex drive. Clinical studies have suggested that it’s the Saponin content of Fadogia that enhances testosterone and sex drive by increasing luteinizing hormone (LH) within the body. Under normal conditions LH is released to keep testosterone levels within a specific range, however as LH is increased, testosterone production is also increased.
Urtica Dioica - also known as Stinging Nettle – This herb can increase free testosterone levels as well as supporting reductions in DHT.
The concept of increasing available, or free, testosterone is critical because this is what the body uses for muscle growth – it is, in fact, the amount of free testosterone in the body that’s responsible for all the anabolic effects that are typically attributed to testosterone. Urtica Dioica contains lignans that attach to sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), blocking it from attaching to its specific receptor. This means that more free testosterone can circulate in the bloodstream. The amount of free testosterone to total testosterone is minimal, in fact, most of the testosterone produced by the body becomes “bound”, which means it is not available to the cell receptor sites and is not involved in the process of muscle growth or sexual enhancement.
Urtica Dioica has been clinically shown to promote prostate health. DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone, a metabolite of testosterone, activates prostate growth which in turn results in numerous negative effects such as prostate problems and balding. Urtica Dioica inhibits DHT, preventing it from attaching to various sites near the prostate thereby preventing benign prostatic hyperplasia. Urtica Dioica also helps block the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, which regulates the conversion of testosterone into DHT.
KSM-66 Ashwagandha Root Extract – In development for more than a decade, this is a premium quality Ashwagandha extract manufactured by Ixoreal Biomed. KSM-66 Ashwagandha is an adaptogen herb that is typically used to help reduce stress and anxiety. KSM-66 has the additional benefit of being able to improve the quality of semen by increasing serum levels of testosterone and luteinizing hormone (LH), while at the same time decreasing levels of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). KSM-66 also supports the reduction of cortisol levels in the body, known as a highly destructive catabolic hormone that can reduce testosterone production and derail anabolic processes.
Eurycoma Longifolia – also known as Tongkat Ali and Long Jack – This herb originates in Southeast Asia and has a long history of use as a natural testosterone booster. Additionally, it supports sex drive and increased energy.
The glycoprotein and eurypeptide content found in Tongkat Ali is what is considered responsible for enhancing sexual health while its ability to increase luteinizing hormone as well as free testosterone availability is what’s considered responsible for its ability to enhance testosterone.
Clinical research backs this up, several clinical trials using human test subjects have been conducted on Tongkat Ali and have indicated that it can significantly increase lean muscle and enhance strength.
PrimaVie Shilajit Extract - This clinically proven, premium quality extract originates in the Himalayas and has been shown in clinical studies to dramatically increase both total and free testosterone levels, decrease fatigue as well as enhance physical performance. In one clinical trial using human test subjects, Shilajit was able to significantly enhance the gene expression responsible for muscle adaptation, making it one of the very few ingredients that can impact the effect of resistance exercise in this way.
Boron Citrate – This important trace mineral has been clinically shown to be able to increase both total and free testosterone levels as well as reduce excess estrogen.
One clinical study conducted using eight healthy male test subjects given 10 mg. of boron showed significant increases (28%) in free (active) testosterone levels as well as reduced estrogenic activity (39%) as measured by a significant decrease in estradiol after just seven days.
In a second clinical study that investigated the effect of boron supplementation on levels of serum vitamin D also measured levels of free testosterone. The study was conducted for 8 weeks and consisted of 13 male test subjects ingesting 6 mg. of boron per day. At the conclusion of the study, researchers determined that levels of free testosterone had risen by 29.5% on average.
Mucuna Pruriens – This is an adaptogenic herb that promotes increased LH (Luteinizing Hormone) which in turn leads to increases in testosterone production. It also stimulates both testosterone and GH release.
As you can see, this is an advanced testosterone booster that is unmatched in the industry – if you want lean mass, increased strength, and an enhanced sex drive – you’ve found it with M-Test by Competitive Edge Labs!
