Elevate Testosterone Levels & Libido!
Once some companies get going, there’s absolutely no stopping them. Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals has been on a major winning streak lately with their industry-dominating DMAA supplements and prohormones, and they don’t show any signs of slowing down.
But after releasing those new prohormones, especially the ones like Halodrol powered by the potent 1-Andro, they need to round out the stack with some healthy man protection.
Today, we’ve got a product that goes along with whatever prohormone cycle you happen to be running. Arimiplex is a comprehensive post cycle therapy product that limits estrogen while optimizing testosterone levels when coming off cycle, but it may even be useful when on cycle!
The short story is that Arimiplex has a lot of ingredients for reducing DHT, which is extremely important for anyone predisposed to hair loss via androgenic alopecia. But that’s not all – there’s also an estrogen inhibitor inside and more!
Saw Palmetto Fruit
All men as they age are keenly aware of the importance of a healthy prostate. This is definitely a case where “bigger” is definitely not better! As you’re probably well aware, an enlarged prostate is one of the early warning signs of prostate cancer. To fight growth and inflammation, Arimiplex starts off with a healthy serving of Saw Palmetto (Serenoa Repens) which has been shown to suppress prostate growth.
Saw Palmetto has also been shown inhibit the conversion of testosterone to DHT. This ultimately indirectly boosts your testosterone levels, a very good thing coming off cycle! When taken on cycle, that DHT prevention will also help with any potential hair loss, since higher levels DHT is directly attributed to androgenic hair loss. Great to keep that hormone at regular levels – and this isn’t the only time we’ll discuss this.
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) is the primary substrate for glutathione, which means that if there’s not enough NAC available, you could be chronically low in this important antioxidant. Elevated glutathione levels enable the liver to filter more effectively and efficiently which ultimately keeps you and liver healthy and free of inflammation and free radical damage!
As an interesting side note, taking NAC in tandem with Vitamin B and Vitamin C, supplies your body with everything it needs to break down alcohol and its toxic byproducts (acetaldehyde). This might be an interesting “bio-hack” for those of you who like to party a little too much on the weekends!
Pygeum Africanum bark extract comes from the Prunus africanum tree or African cherry tree and has long been used in African medicine for supporting prostate health. Modern research has shown there is some magic behind this old world medicine as it has the capacity to displace about 60% of the DHT from its receptors.
DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) is another sex hormone and androgen in the body. Note that roughly 5% of the testosterone in your body converts to DHT.
If DHT is a sex hormone and anabolic androgen, why would we want this inhibited?
Again, we want this to keep DHT at bay mainly because DHT is the primary contributing factor in androgenic alopecia — male pattern baldness caused by hormones! This happens naturally through almost every man’s life, but if we’re getting higher testosterone levels, they may convert to higher DHT levels, which may exacerbate the problem for those who are predisposed to it.
Furthermore, anything (hormone or otherwise) that robs us of testosterone is a potential for more testosterone, if we can stop or slow it. So it makes sense we’d want to halt the proliferation of DHT unless you happen to enjoy looking like a cue ball!
Stinging Nettle Extract
Stinging Nettle, a.k.a Urtica Dioica, is a plant that contains lignans, a particular type of compound that interferes with Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG). Sex Hormone Binding Globulin is a primary regulator of free testosterone in the body; it binds to testosterone and then renders it incapable of interacting with the androgen receptors involved in muscle growth.
Stinging nettle inhibits SHBG, which then prevents SHBG from interfering with your testosterone. This indirectly boosts testosterone production and opens the door for additional muscle growth. Lastly, Stinging Nettle also acts as a 5?-reductase inhibitor, which once again prevents the conversion of testosterone to DHT.
Testosterone and LH Support & Aromatase Inhibitor
Androsta 3,5-dien-7, 17-dione (37.5mg)
Coming off cycle is a time when estrogen levels can spike and run rampant in many individuals. To combat this, Hi-Tech has included perhaps the most potent Aromatase Inhibitor (A.I.) legally available in Arimiplex. More commonly referred to as Arimistane, Androsta 3,5-dien-7,17-dione is a metabolite of 7-Keto DHEA and as we already mentioned, an extremely potent A.I.
Another benefit to arimistane is that it helps control estrogen and cortisol levels in the body, both of which are counterproductive for muscle building. In the end, lower estrogen levels in the body, translate to higher circulating testosterone levels!
Is it enough for 4-Andro users?
When testosterone goes up, estrogen follows. Our goal is to keep estrogen in check.
The question is, for 4-Andro users: is arimistane enough to keep estrogen at regular levels, and if so, how much do we need? We mention 4-Andro, because that’s the prohormone that converts to testosterone, and will have some estrogenic byproducts as well.
The good news is that we’ll find this out soon enough, as our next entry in the PricePlow Blood Testing program will involve a user who is going to take 300mg LG Sciences 4-Andro alongside 60mg Arimistane each day (from Form-XT), with blood tests before, during, and after! Stay tuned!! (Note that a day’s worth of Arimiplex will get you 75mg worth, not 60mg, so this is stronger than what we’re testing).
One last tidbit about Arimistane, when used on it’s own, it helps “dry” you out leading to a harder, more defined look.
Fenugreek Extract (125mg)
Long used as a holistic means for improving virility and libido, fenugreek has had somewhat conflicting results in modern research trials. The major study everyone promotes to show its usefulness demonstrated it successfully raised testosterone while simultaneously decreasing in body fat within test group.
As for its MOA, fenugreek appears to function as an alpha-5 reductase inhibitor, which prevents, or limits, the conversion of testosterone to DHT. The catch, is that you need at least 500mg, to replicate that clinical trial. We’re not getting that much here (half with a day’s two tablet dose), but ultimately, this may slightly boost testosterone simply by helping you not lose too much testosterone to its much less useful counterpart, DHT. You may not need that full 500mg dose given all of the other DHT inhibitors inside!
Tribulus Terrestris Extract (167mg)
One of the most commonly used all-natural testosterone boosters is Tribulus Terrestris, a.k.a. Devil’s Weed. This herb has its roots in Ayurvedic medicine where it was used for improving male virility and vitality.
The key component to Trib’s effects lie in its saponins, and Hi-Tech has standardized this particular extract for 90% saponins! Tribulus has been successful in increasing male libido and performance even though it doesn’t do much for increasing testosterone levels.
New tribulus research: it may increase testosterone in older men
However, a new study shows that Tribulus extract increased Testosterone (+12%), IGF-1 (+20%), reduced body fat by an average of 2kg (7%) and maintained lean mass! Since that study was performed on middle-aged men (ages 45-60), who definitely have dropped testosterone, this may be relevant for post-cycle users… who also have dropped natural testosterone production!
So maybe there’s more to this herb than we have traditionally thought? It may only be a libido booster for healthy young males, but older men and PCT users may enjoy having it thrown into their stacks.
Cardiovascular Support (150mg)
Red Yeast Rice Extract
Red yeast rice powder is derived from a type of yeast (i.e. bacteria) that grows on the red rice plant. Extracts of this yeast contain compounds called monacolins, which inhibit the production and uptake of cholesterol in the body.
Specifically, red yeast rice extract helps lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol in the body and supports optimal total cholesterol levels in the body.
As we saw in our 1-Andro research, when on cycle, fatty acid levels get a bit out of shape. This is another good reason to consider this for both during and after your cycle.
Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract is plentiful in several tannins and catechins which have been documented to support heart health and enhance blood flow in the body. This is attributed to elevated nitric oxide (N.O.) production which dilates blood vessels resulting in greater circulation.
Elevated N.O. is caused by increasing endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase (eNOS), the enzyme directly responsible for driving nitric oxide production in the body. More eNOS directly leads to greater N.O. and ultimately better blood flow in and around the heart.
Milk Thistle Extract (360mg)
Milk Thistle is widely regarded for its liver detoxifying effects. The compound inside that is responsible for its wonders is known as silymarin, so we assume that’s what Hi-Tech is standardizing for.
Milk thistle enhances protein synthesis and DNA synthesis in the liver. Furthermore, a systematic review on milk thistle surmised that alcoholic liver cirrhosis and alcohol poisoning are treatable with the extract.
Once again, when looking at the study on 1-Andro, liver levels deteriorated (as they will with any prohormone or steroid)… so we’re liking Arimiplex more and more
