Phosphatidylserine Can Block Muscle Damage

July 31, 2008

Taking 600 mg of phosphatidylserine (PS) can lower the muscle damaging hormone cortisol by increasing the testosterone to cortisol ratio. The researchers suggest that phosphatidylserine is effective combating exercise-induced stress.

The effects of phosphatidylserine on endocrine response to moderate intensity exercise
Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition 2008, 5:11doi:10.1186/1550-2783-5-11

“The findings suggest that PS is an effective supplement for combating exercise-induced stress and preventing the physiological deterioration that can accompany too much exercise. PS supplementation promotes a desired hormonal status for athletes by blunting increases in cortisol levels.”

New Pro-Hormone Ban Almost Here

July 1, 2008

New Pro-Hormone Ban to go in effect soon.

A long lasting Pro-hormone called Bold increases strength and helps improve endurance will be banned soon.

My personal favorite DMT for strength and protein dependent muscle gains will disappear as well.

Tren is everyone’s overall favorite for bodybuilding muscle gains will be banned as well.

“Boldione is also known by the following chemical name: androsta- 1,4-diene-3,17-dione. DEA has determined that the chemical structure of boldione is chemically related to that of testosterone. The chemical structure of boldione differs from testosterone by only the following two chemical groups: A ketone group at carbon 17 and a double bond between the first and second carbon. The human body would be expected to metabolize the ketone group at carbon 17 into a hydroxyl group that is present on testosterone. Furthermore, the scientific literature reports that the additional double bond at carbon 1 in boldione does not significantly decrease the anabolic activity of the substance (Vida, 1969). Boldione is an anabolic steroid precursor, being metabolized by the body into boldenone (Galletti and Gardi, 1971), which is a schedule III anabolic steroid (21 U.S.C. 801(41)(A)(vi)).

Desoxymethyltestosterone (DMT) is also known by the following names: 17[alpha]-methyl-5a-androst-2-en-17[beta]-ol; and madol. DEA has determined that the chemical structure of desoxymethyltestosterone is chemically related to testosterone. The chemical structure of desoxymethyltestosterone differs from testosterone by the following four chemical features: The lack of a ketone group at the third carbon, a double bond between the second and third carbon, the lack of a double bond between the fourth and fifth carbon, and a methyl group at carbon 17. Each of these four chemical features is known through the scientific literature not to eliminate the anabolic and androgenic activity of the substance (Brueggemeir et al., 2002; Vida, 1969).

19-Nor-4,9(10)-androstadienedione is also known by the following chemical names: 19-norandrosta 4,9(10)-diene-3,17-dione; and estra- 4,9(10)-diene-3,17-dione. DEA has determined that the chemical structure of 19-nor-4,9(10)-androstadienedione is chemically related to testosterone. The chemical structure of 19-nor-4,9(10)- androstadienedione differs from testosterone by the following three chemical groups: A ketone group at carbon 17, the absence of a methyl group at carbon 19, and a double-bond between the ninth and tenth carbon. The human body metabolizes the ketone group at carbon 17 into a hydroxyl group that is present on testosterone. Furthermore, the scientific literature reports that both the absence of the methyl group at carbon 19 and the additional double bond in 19-nor-4,9(10)- androstadienedione increase the anabolic activity of the substance (Vida, 1969). ”
