Ultimate Male Energy 120 Veg Capsules
After the age of 35, men often experience a decline in testosterone levels and an increase in estrogen production. Although lower testosterone is often dismissed as part of the normal aging process, this decline can affect energy, performance, muscle mass and fat distribution, hair growth, and even emotional and cognitive well-being.
Certain plants and herbal extracts can be used to maintain normal levels of circulating testosterone and provide antioxidant protection to support men’s health and energy as they age. Chrysin is the active component in passion flower that is responsible for elevating blood testosterone levels. It works by blocking the activity of aromatase, an enzyme needed to convert testosterone into estrogen metabolites. In a placebocontrolled study, two groups of men with an average age of 35 or 55 were given 125 mg of passion flower extract per day. After 15 days of supplementation, free testosterone levels increased by 13%, energy increased by 17%, and libido increased by 9% in the older group.
Stinging nettle root extracts have been shown through laboratory studies to increase usable testosterone levels by binding to the protein sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) so that less is available to bind to testosterone. Additionally, the betasitosterol in stinging nettle supports prostate health and helps reduce symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), such as urination difficulty and enlargement of the prostate. In a placebo-controlled clinical trial, BPH patients were supplemented with 360 mg of stinging nettle extract per day. After six months, 81% of patients had improved lower urinary tract symptoms, including a 77% improvement in peak urine flow rates and a modest reduction in prostate size.
Cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli, contain the anti-carcinogenic compounds indole-3-carbinol (I3C) and sulforaphane. I3C helps regulate the production of beneficial estrogens and inhibits the production of harmful ones. In a clinical trial, men took 6–7 mg/kg of I3C per day for one week. Urine samples confirmed that supplementation increased men’s levels of C-2 estrogens (beneficial estrogens) by 91% and lowered their levels of 16-hydroxyestrone (harmful estrogens) levels by 45%. I3C lowered the concentration of metabolites responsible for stimulating estrogen production.
Ultimate Male Energy combines potent antioxidants to help neutralize free radicals and protect against oxidative damage. The main active component of turmeric is the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound curcumin. A placebo-controlled clinical trial supplemented infertile men with 80 mg of curcumin per day for 10 weeks. Curcumin significantly increased blood antioxidant capacity and lowered markers of oxidative stress, in addition to improving aspects of semen quality and slightly increasing testosterone levels, although not enough to reach statistical significance.
Quercetin, an antioxidant bioflavonoid found in fruits and vegetables, as well as citrus bioflavonoids, help improve the body’s antioxidant status and are used therapeutically for scavenging free radicals and protecting against oxidative stress. Holy basil, also known as tulsi, is an adaptogenic herb used to strengthen resistance to physical, mental, chemical, and metabolic stress. Its high concentration of antioxidant phenolic compounds is considered responsible for many of holy basil’s protective benefits.
BioPerine® black pepper extract is standardized to 95% piperine, an active alkaloid that improves the bioavailability of nutrients that may otherwise be difficult to absorb.
