A natural herbal anabolic. 13 Lives Ostaclean is formulated with a variety of ingredients that are designed to keep the body anabolic. It also lowers estrogen levels and decreases the impact of cortisol on the body. It promotes lean muscle mass via 5α-hydroxylaxogenin and limits aromatisation via an Anti-Estrogen proprietary blend. Cortisol plays an important aspect in recovery and growth of new muscle tissue, the combination of Ashwaganda and Panax Ginseng allows you to keep the cortisol down and muscle gain up. To increase the bioavailability of all these compounds, they have alsovadequately dosed Piperine to allow a more efficient rate of absorption. 5α-hydroxylaxogenin is a plant-based derivative that has been claimed to assist your body’s own anabolic building blocks. It is a steroidal sapogenin that can be found naturally in nature and is the antagonist for semi synthesis of steroidal hormones. In a nutshell, it is a plant based anabolic compound that helps smaller molecules become bigger molecules. It has been known to increase protein synthesis by up to 200% and is very fast acting. A simple way to explain how it works in relation to hypertrophy in the body, is that cells are broken down in the muscle when training. The response of 5α-hydroxylaxogenin is to effectively and more efficiently rebuild these cells to their original state and or bigger than before. The Anti-Estrogen proprietary blend in Ostaclean is a blend of aromatase inhibitory compounds. These stop the conversion of testosterone to estrogen in the body and, to an extent, detoxifies free radical exogenous estrogens in the body. 5a-Hydroxyecdysone mechanism of action is that it lowers the aromatase activity in the aromatase enzyme and by doing so stops testosterone from converting to estrogen and remains as free testosterone in the body.
Cortisol can have a major impact on many of the body’s mechanisms, such as lowering testosterone levels and inducing catabolism. The inclusion of Panax Ginseng and Ashwaganda lowers the impact of stress on the body in a variety of ways. Panax Ginseng is an adaptogenic herb that has been used in the treatment of depression, anxiety and chronic fatigue syndromes.
A clinical trial of 30 young healthy adults was conducted and it was concluded that those that were given Panax ginseng experienced an onset of mental fatigue later than those that were given a placebo. In addition to Panax Ginseng, Ashwaganda is growing increasingly popular due to its impact on lowering cortisol. Ashwaganda is known for a number of effects on the body, such as: - Lowering cortisol levels and reducing stress and anxiety - Boosting testosterone and increasing male fertility Research that has been conducted on ashwaganda has shown it has the ability to regulate chemical signalling in the central nervous system. Multiple controlled human studies showed a reduction in symptoms of people with disorders related to stress and anxiety. A 69% reduction in anxiety and insomnia was reported in a 60-day study compared to a placebo groupwhich only had an 11% increase.Aswhaganda has amazing properties that can increase testosterone levels and increase reproductive health. The most reported conclusion drawn from studies on ashwaganda in regards to its impact on male hormones, is increase in sperm count and motility for infertile and fertile men as well as recorded higher levels of antioxidant in the blood.
