- Contains key ingredients that support estrogen modulation†
WHAT IS FREE TEST®?
The key ingredients in FREE TEST® support enhanced aromatase modulation.† Aromatase is an enzyme that transforms testosterone into estrogen, and the more active aromatase is, the more estrogen will ultimately be present. Therefore, modulating aromatase may support healthy testosterone levels and increased lean body mass.†
1. Androst-3,5-diene-7,17-dione (3,7-Oxo DHEA) is a naturally-occurring metabolite of DHEA, and is a potential aromatase inhibitor. All aromatase inhibitors potentially share the characteristics of positively altering the testosterone to estrogen ratio.†1
2. Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR) stems from L-Carnitine which is a valuable and versatile amino acid that is crucial for fatty acid metabolism and testicular function. Additionally ALCAR has been shown to support nitric oxide levels in the body. N.O. is important when it comes to regulating vascularity, muscle hardness and strength.†2
3. Coleus forskohlii (commonly known as Forskolin) may have positive effects on healthy testosterone levels due to the alteration of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP).cAMP is an important second messenger in hormone signaling which demonstrates the potential ability to exert enhanced metabolism, positive effects of libido and greater endurance capacity during exercise. †3
