I seriously can’t stand having to type that out. Let’s just refer to it as ATD again. Back in September, we introduced you to ATD and because it isn’t universally studied, used, or accepted, we haven’t spent too much time on it since then. That’s going to change today because we at Vaxxen insist that our readers get serious about ATD, even if the rest of the fitness world isn’t.
ATD has a number of benefits, at least in theory as sufficient studies haven’t really been completed for many of the effects people notice. There are too many reports of success to be ignored though, so it’s time we review the all-but-certain benefits of Androsta-3, 5-Diene-7, 17-Dione supplementation.
The Benefits of Androsta-3, 5-Diene-7, 17-Dione Supplementation
Before moving on to our list of benefits, we think it’s important for you to understand that ATD is a naturally occurring substance. Back in the 70’s, the Research Center for Molecular Biology noticed that ATD was in our urine[i]. Since then, a variety of scientists have found traces of ATD in testosterone produced within the male body and estrogen produced in the female body. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the main benefits of ATD supplementation!
- Regulation and reduction of estrogen levels. If your testosterone levels reach a low[ii], your estrogen levels will rise. Unfortunately, many of the supplements we take effect the testosterone levels our bodies produce and can sometimes cause unwanted increases in estrogen. To help balance and counteract the adverse effects, ATD can be leveraged.
- Reduction in water retention. This is more of a side effect of increased estrogen levels, but should be mentioned anyway. Nobody who is big on body building wants to add water weight. Water weight makes us look pudgy and feel sluggish, not to mention can mess with your psyche due to peer body shaming. The last thing we want to do when trying to build muscle is gain unnecessary mass through water weight. Supplementing with ATD will prevent unwanted water weight gain.
- Natural way to increase testosterone levels. Just as ATD can help you decrease the levels of estrogen in your body, it can increase the testosterone levels. High levels of testosterone will lead to more effective workouts, stronger pumps, new personal records in the gym and on the track, and additional muscle gain because of it.
Vaxxstane Leverages the Benefits of Androsta-3, 5-Diene-7, 17-Dione
We’ve created a popular muscle building/cycle support product called Vaxxstane that leverages the benefits of Androsta-3, 5-Diene-7, 17-Dione and fenugreek to increase lean body mass without gaining water weight or embarrassing levels of estrogen. As written on the blurb, “Vaxxstane is an aromatase inhibitor that raises your natural myotropic state so you can grow muscle mass, increase testosterone, improve your libido – and do it all without worrying about an increase in estrogen.”
We think that despite the usual number of medical studies, ATD is perfectly safe for regular use. Note: ATD may cause a positive test for anabolic steroids, which are banned from most amateur and professional sports competitions.
