4-Andro rx, also known as 4-DHEA, is a PH to the grand-daddy of all steroids…Testosterone. With an abundance of information available on this essential hormone, I have decided to focus less on the physiological effects of Testosterone itself and instead, have chosen to illuminate the reader on the various potential applications of this legal testosterone elevating agent. In doing so, some may pose the question “why not just use injectable testosterone instead?” Not one to shy away from the tough questions, I will say right up front that when compared directly to testosterone, 4-Andro has its limitations. This is inevitable for a testosterone PH, as all prohormones are limited by their conversion rates to the target hormone. At this stage in the game, no one has yet been able to create a PH which is able to convert to Testosterone in quantities approaching what the typical BB’r might inject. So, for those individuals who have no objection to the use of CIII drugs, by all means, go ahead and use injectable Testosterone; it is the superior choice. However, there is a substantial portion of the population which is opposed to this practice and it is to them that this article is primarily addressed.

200mg of Standardized Eurycoma Longifolia Extract Increases Total Testosterone by 47%
Kudos to Benson, who certainly is one of the Minds on the Mind And Muscle Forums (I don’t know about his muscle, though ;-). Benson dug up a very recent article on the effects of “Ali’s Stick” (Tambi. 2011), which would be the literal translation of “Tongkat ali”, also known as the “Malaysian ginseng”, a herb that has been used by generations of men in South-East-Asia to improve their sexual performance, on testosterone levels in 76 male patients suffering from late-onset hypogonadism (LOH) and, consequently, Aging Males’ Symptoms (AMS).

6-OXO was the 1st effective anti-aromatase to hit the OTC market. Originally formulated and marketed by Patrick Arnold, the chemist-guru who brought pro-hormones to the marketplace, including the original 4AD and 1AD, Patrick was the man who helped launch the modern OTC prohormone movement. Patrick has also been responsible for bringing several undetectable designer steroids to elite athletes, has been featured in bodybuilding magazines as a monthly columnist, owns his own supplement company, and is still widely respected as an authority on anabolic chemistry and ergogenic aids. With that said, we will delve into 6-OXO and explain why it is still relevant today.

The prosexual effect of the testosterone booster ProLensis™ (Bulbine natalensis)
by John Connor
Bulbine natalensis is quickly gaining popularity in the sports supplement world. It’s easy to see why – the effects of extracts of Bulbine natalensis recorded in animal studies are amazing. The photo shows the African botanical Bulbine natalensis. Its Zulu name is ibhucu; Afrikaners call it rooiwortel. Bulbine natalensis is an indigenous African botanical that is traditionally used in South African herbal medicine to improve potency in men (as an aphrodisiac).

Herb Fenugreek Could be Natural Viagra, new study finds
by S. L. Baker, features writer
(NaturalNews) Erectile dysfunction (ED), the politically correct term for what used to be called impotence, is the ongoing inability to maintain an erection firm enough, or that lasts long enough, for sex. A lack of sexual desire may also accompany ED. But ED is just a normal part of aging, correct? So all you have to do is get a prescription for one of Big Pharma’s drug solutions — like Viagra (generic name sildenafil), Cialis (tadalafil) or Levitra (Vardenafil) — pop a pill and you’ll be performing like a guy in his twenties, right? If you assume the answer to these questions is “yes”, you are mistaken.

Durbin ‘Dietary Supplement Labeling Act to reward FDA for failures and punish responsible supplement producers
by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer
(NaturalNews) A new bill introduced by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), S. 1310, the “Dietary Supplement Labeling Act of 2011,” threatens to undermine the dietary supplement industry by giving the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) more power over it, despite the agency’s failure to enforce existing laws that are already on the books.
The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the leading trade association representing the dietary supplement industry, has come out in opposition to the bill, saying it will essentially “punish all responsible companies with its overreaching mandates.”

FDA unleashes end game scheme to outlaw virtually all dietary supplements formulated after 1994
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
(NaturalNews) In the wake of hundreds of dietary supplements recently being outlawed across the EU, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has quietly unleashed a regulatory scheme that, if fully implemented, could ban virtually all dietary supplements in the USA that were formulated after 1994.
That means nearly all superfoods, multivitamins, detox supplements, and medicinal herbal products we have all come to depend on to prevent disease and boost our immune health could soon be stripped from store shelves and outlawed across the nation. I call it the “End Game” of the FDA’s war against humanity:

Optimal Protein Supplementation
The complete advantage of utilizing multi protein sources and amino acids for a new dimension of sports nutrition benefits!
From the everyday nutritionally inclined individual, to the maximum muscle inclined bodybuilder, adequate protein and amino acid ingestion is at the forefront of a sound nutritional program. The importance of moderate to high protein diets and amino acids has shown remarkable results in terms of maintaining a lean, muscular physique: aiding in fat loss, satiety, exercise performance and muscle recovery. In addition, recently moderate/ high protein diets have shown to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, maintain optimal hormone levels, and optimize liver and kidney function along with a host of other benefits.
Understanding that protein is important is one thing, but knowing what type of protein and amino acids to ingest is equally or even more important factor to consider.

HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY PROPERTIES OF MACA ROOT
Effects of Peruvian Maca on Hormonal Functions
Whether discussions today are about estrogen replacement therapy, increasing male potency or improving other hormonal functions, the solutions mentioned are generally drugs currently on the market. Lately, however, we’ve been hearing marvellous reports about a hearty plant root cultivated high in the Andes of Peru. Known as “maca,” this ancient nutritional source and efficacious endocrine system remedy is being dispensed by health professionals as a safe and natural substitute for drugs.
Maca, in fact, has been used by Peruvian consumers for many centuries, from before the time of the Incas. Once in a decade an herb used by native peoples for thousands of years comes to our attention and it seems so important to health that we wonder how we ever got along without it before.

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) Explained
DHEA is an androgenic hormone produced in the adrenal glands. In the body, DHEA is converted into other hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone or cortisol. Some natural products include wild yams as a source of DHEA. A metabolic precursor to DHEA, DHEA-S (dehydroepiandrosterone-3-sulfate) can be converted to DHEA and vice versa. DHEA levels are known to decrease with age – particularly after the age of 40, but perhaps as early as ages 20 – 30.

Whey Protein Explained
As scientific evidence continues to mount in favor of the health promoting effects of higher protein intakes, increasingly health conscious consumers are demanding convenient and affordable ways of adding protein to their diet. The food and supplement industries, never one to miss an opportunity, have been eager to oblige, introducing a myriad of protein bars, powders, shakes, candies, puddings and other convenience foods to fill this demand. But consumers should realize that oftentimes the food industry, and its darling offspring, the nutritional supplement industry will go to any lengths to sell the cheapest (and potentially harmful) ingredients they can get away with. Nowhere is this more true than in the area of whey protein.
