An in-depth look at the research and result driven formulation behind PRIMAL-MALE
Saponin extracts have well-defined roles since the introduction of the long-time industry favorite tribulus terrestris and their androgenic mechanism of action which they remain popularized for.á Still, a new source for saponins surfaced in 2005 with a more pronounced effect on modifying libido and sexual dysfunction than this previous counterpart.á That saponin source was defined as an aqueous extract from the stem of the medicinal plant Fadogia agrestis.
Fadogia serves as a Luteinizing-hormone mimetic (LH-mimetic). In other words, it causes the release of Luteinizing hormone (LH), which in turn signals the Leydig cells (specialized cells of the testes) to produce more Testosterone.á This increase in testosterone seems to occur in a dose-dependent fashion, with higher doses offering the greatest benefit.
Increased testosterone and circulating androgens has many ergogenic benefits to the average gym-going athlete.á In being the primary anabolic substrate, increases in lean muscle mass and better sense of well-being are expected.á As discussed above, the sexual effects are essentially unmatched:á increased libido, easier erections, increased ejaculatory volume, and stamina are common reports with users.
In times of inevitable shutdown of your hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular-axis (HPTA) use of anabolic substances, aiding recovery is a feature of this compound.
Eucommia ulmoides (standardized for full spectrum of triterpenoids and phytolipids)
Not to be confused with the widespread sports supplement ingredient Eurycoma longfolia; Eucommia ulmoides û a product used in Chinese medicine for years has never been seen in the sports supplement sector of the dietary supplement industry as a whole.
Traditional Chinese medicine has alternatively referenced Eucommia as Du Zhong because Chinese legend suggests that a person named Du Zhong made great intellectual achievements after taking this herb.á It had gone on to earn acclaim as a kidney and liver tonic that strengthened tendons and bones.á Later experiments showed therapeutic offering in people with high blood pressure and an ability for the bark of the plant to decrease blood fats.
In recent years, extensive research exists attempting to delve into its ability to decrease high blood pressure without side effects, an exciting property when considering elevation in androgen levels.á A study in 2003 using isometric contraction of isolated rat aortic and dog carotid rings, claims to have provided the first evidence for in vitro vasorelaxant action of Eucommia ulmoides, thus confirming the pharmacological basis for its use as an antihypertensive agent. It would be later confirmed that E. ulmoides extract was non-toxic and effective in reducing systolic blood pressure in spontaneous hypertensive rats.
Though eucommia still had a lot of anecdotal feedback suggesting its possession of aphrodisiac properties that seemed to suggest its blood pressure lowering effects were not in vacuum.á Afrerall, its mainstay use has really been treating libido and impotence.
2007 marked the release of two rather interesting studies on Eucommia s phytoandrogen potential.á That s right!á While over 2200 studies have been conducted on its estrogen-equivalent, the so-called phytoestrogen, phytoandrogens are brand new.á At least twelve compounds have been isolated and suggested to be the potential active constituents to mimicking testosterone in structure and fitting into the androgen receptor, though two have been focused on:á the terpenoids and an unusual type of fatty acid.á This is suggested to cause the same effects if testosterone itself had inserted itself into the very same receptor.
But, it doesn t stop there!á Eucommia also increases the activity of testosterone already present û whether this is endogenous or exogenous in nature.á This shows its perhaps obvious benefit in PRIMAL MALE for the synergism of ingredients.
Epimedium species [E. sagittatum, E. grandiflorum, E. brevicornum] (standardized to ___ % Icariin)
The Chinese herb, named yin yang huo, also translates as licentious Goat Weed, suggesting desired lusty effects.á Traditionally, it has been used to increase libido and improve sexual performance by correcting the sexual disorders of erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.á This may be due to the fact that horny goat weed contains a number of flavonoids, some of which show estrogen-inhibiting properties in vitro.á It also may offer insight into why it has shown efficacy in clinical trials in patients with kidney failure for improving sex drive.
The active ingredient in epimedium is thought to be icariin in which PRIMAL MALE has been specifically extracted for.á Icariin inhibits the activity of something called Phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5), an enzyme that breaks down the compound cyclic GMP (cGMP), increasing the levels of cGMP in the penile and other tissues.á cGMP is an intermediate en route to production of nitric oxide.á This cascade causes the penis to be filled with blood and engorge likely contributing to the libido and sexual performance improvements seen with this herbal extract.
This makes the third tier of the PRIMAL MALE obvious inciting the primal androgenic instincts of what it is to truly be male û increasing libido, sex drive, and associated increased testosterone effects.
Indole 3 Carbinol (I3C)
Several years ago, scientists hypothesized that a preference towards the 2-hydroxylase pathway and the subsequent generation of 2-hydroxyestrone (2-OHE1), results in less toxic metabolites in the circulation, which was subsequently gone on to support a decreased number of breast cancer outcomes if this were the dominant pathway (later, this proved true for prostate cancer as well and men everywhere applauded the benefits for this otherwise troublesome organ). It was also around that same time that the hypothesis of greater estrogenic metabolism via the 16-alpha-hydroxylase enzyme would yield greater amounts of the more potent 16-alpha-hydroxyestrone (16alpha-OHE1) and a larger number of estrogen-dependent cancers would likely be the result.
Although it may seem obvious that a substance consumed over many years by millions worldwide is inherently safe, it has been challenged recently by those with vested interest in its metabolite DIM. The concern with the challenges DIM supporters have offered and it is just plain bad science. Numerous cell culture, animal, and human studies have demonstrated I3C s safety and
