• It offers 7 of the most innovative, pure, Pharmaceutical Grade sources of BCAAs, including the latest Ethyl Ester & Ketoisocaproate Calcium technology
• Ethyl Ester is the first bonding molecule to pass the blood-brain barrier, thus effectively saturating every cell in the body with a larger dose of the attached BCAA
• Ketoisocaproate Calcium (KIC) is perfectly anti-catabolic – it assists in muscle growth by changing the environment in your body from catabolic (muscle wasting) to anabolic (muscle building)
• It also supplies a potent dose of Glycine-L-Arginine – an ingredient scientifically proven to enhance muscle performance and recovery from fatigue by sustaining muscle force and overall output
A very typical case of severe cholestasis due to anabolic steroid use. Because the steroids were being used without medical supervision, the dose and actual duration of use of each preparation was unclear, but cholestasis usually arises within 4 to 12 weeks of starting a C-17 alkylated androgenic steroid. The jaundice can be severe and prolonged and accompanied by severe pruritus and marked weight loss. The serum enzymes are typically minimally elevated except for a short period immediately after stopping therapy. The pattern of enzyme elevations can be hepatocellular, cholestatic or mixed. Liver biopsy shows a “bland” cholestasis with minimal inflammation and hepatocellular necrosis. Ma Huang has also been implicated in cases of drug induced liver injury, but is associated with an acute hepatocellular pattern of injury.
Several studies concluded that diets low in fat (under 15% of total calories) significantly decreased testosterone levels while diets higher in fat (above 30% of total calories) increased serum testosterone levels. Rather than continuing with this discussion I will provide a link to an article which covers the subject quite nicely. To simplify everything that I have said, it seems that one should not lower fat below 15% of daily calories unless they would like to face extreme testosterone deficiencies. Likewise, one should not increase fat to say 40% in order to increase testosterone. Although fat increases testosterone to a degree, it is important to remember that testosterone is only a small piece of the larger puzzle. There are many other hormones and factors involved in building muscle other than just testosterone. By increasing fat to extremely high levels, there will be less “space” for carbohydrates and protein, both of which are very important for aforementioned reasons.
