In recent years, a trend seems to be emerging that the starting athlete is increasingly resorting to illegal performance-enhancing drugs. No more fumbling for years in the gym for a few pounds of muscle mass. The same result is what you want. Even before this beach season from Michelin man to Mister Olympia and from catering spoiler to six pack. With a few clicks of your mouse you have the required pots in house and the transformation can begin. With death killers like "the chance of that is very small" you encourage yourself that your steroids cure will really not lead to side effects. Cardiovascular diseases, acne, "bitch tits", impotence, ... that happens to others. Not you. Yet?
Knowledge about training, nutrition and supplements has increased enormously in recent decades. Scientific research and the experience of athletes who were not afraid to take new paths have led to the development of groundbreaking, innovative sports supplements. As a result, there are now serious alternatives to the dangerous products of the black market.
An example of such a product is Myox-H3C. This supplement combines the effects of various illegal doping substances without endangering health. The product consists of 4 components that have been scientifically proven to have a positive effect on our hormone balance and can thus significantly promote muscle building, muscle strength, recovery time and fat burning.
The way in which Myox-H3C stimulates the release of testosterone by the body is exemplary of the way in which many testosterone boosters work. Myox-H3C contains calcium d-aspartate chelate. This substance stimulates the release of LH (luteinizing hormone) through the pituitary gland. This results in an increased production of testosterone by the testes. The substance that should lead to the increased release of LH differs per testosterone booster, but this mechanism of stimulation of the pituitary gland can be found in many testosterone boosters.
Agents that lower the level of the hormone estradiol in the body can also stimulate testosterone production in men. The use of natural “aromatase inhibitors”, such as zinc and resveratrol, alone or in combination with other agents, is therefore a common method of stimulating testosterone production. Myox-H3C contains Diindolylmethane (DIM). This substance also prevents the formation of estrogens. In combination with a testosterone booster such as calcium d-aspartate chelate, DIM comes into its own. An increased release of testosterone entails the disadvantage that more estrogen also forms in the body.
The production of testosterone requires building blocks such as certain fats, zinc and vitamin D. A diet that is low in fat, zinc and vitamin D will therefore lead to a decrease in testosterone production. Vitamin D deficiency is particularly common in the Netherlands, since sunlight is the main source of vitamin D. Supplementing the diet with extra vitamin D is therefore advisable, certainly if optimum testosterone production is sought.
The pituitary gland not only plays an important role in testosterone production, but also in growth hormone (GH) production. Numerous supplements aim to make this organ produce more GH. Examples include products containing mucuna pruriens, l-arginine and GABA. These agents can be taken alone or in combination. GH release supplements often contain a blend of these ingredients. There are also articles on the market that aim to increase both GH and testosterone production and thus bundle two types of products.
Today, with the development of a new generation of supplements, there is a real alternative to the dangerous muscle enhancers of the black market. Of course, with a steroid cure you blow up like a balloon, but at what price? Afterwards you will see your muscle mass disappear like snow in the sun. It takes months before your body is back in balance. If you are lucky that your body has not sustained any permanent damage… And why should you? With supplements based on the latest scientific research such as Myox-H3C, there is now the option to stimulate maximum strength and muscle growth without over-building your body.
