What is Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Post Gear?
It’s common for many bodybuilders and athletes to implement aggressive supplement cycles in their desire for performance. At the end of one of these cycles, it’s common to see some pretty impressive results, yet those improvements can diminish quickly if you don’t have a good PCT program in place.
What is the role of a PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) in helping you keep your gains?
A complete PCT formula can help restore hormonal balance, which begins with the stimulation of your natural testosterone production. This is followed by inhibiting excess estrogen which blocks unwanted estrogen-related side effects. Also, a good PCT formula should support liver health and control cortisol levels.
What is in 5% Nutrition's PCT/test booster
D-Aspartic Acid – 3,120 mg – Also known as DAA, this natural testosterone booster is clinically dosed to get your test levels back to where they should be. DAA has been shown to be an effective natural test booster with clinical research backing it up. In fact, in one study, natural test levels increased 40% in male test subjects using the 3.2-gram dose in only 12 days – how’s that for getting your hormones back to normal?
Brassaiopsis Glomerulata – 500 mg - This ingredient originates from a tree in Vietnam that has a long history of traditional medicinal use as a pain reliever – it’s used in Post Gear because it contains several aromatase inhibitors that help keep estrogen levels under control.
DIM – 300 mg – Originating in vegetables like broccoli, kale, and cauliflower, this ingredient is also known as Diindolylmethane and is one of the components of Indole-3-Carbinol. Dim primarily helps control estrogen metabolism by preventing the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.
Stinging Nettle – 300 mg – This ingredient is also called Urtica Dioica and is actually a plant with an extended history of use in traditional medicine as a pain reliever. Stinging Nettle contains the active ingredient 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran, a lignan that can help increase levels of free testosterone, which is also called unbound testosterone and is the amount the body allows to be used for things such as muscle growth.
Longjack – 300 mg - Longjack is considered to be an adaptogen, meaning it helps the body deal with physical and mental stress. Longjack is included here to help balance the ratio of cortisol to testosterone. This balance is one of the keys to maintaining an anabolic environment post-cycle. (5) Longjack works with DAA, Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin D to get your test levels back to full speed.
Milk Thistle – 200 mg – This is a commonly used and very popular herb that supports liver health and has been used for hundreds of years in traditional medicines as a general tonic for overall liver health and function.
Laxosterone® Laxogenin – 50 mg - This compound is a non-hormonal plant-based natural anabolic that can stimulate your body to make its own steroids, which can be extremely helpful coming off a cycle.
Acacetin – 50 mg – This compound is thought to inhibit aromatase, an essential part of estrogen synthesis. Acacetin is derived from Damiana that works with Brassaiopsis and DIM to help control estrogen levels.
Artichoke – 50 mg – Artichoke is in Post Gear because of its ability to work with Milk Thistle in supporting normal liver function.
Vitamin D – 5,000 IU – Vitamin D has been shown to have quite a few important benefits, one of these benefits is the ability to support the production of testosterone.
ZMA - or, Zinc – 30 mg, Magnesium – 70 mg, Vitamin B6 – 10.5 mg – This complex of Zinc, Magnesium, and B6 has been shown support increased levels of testosterone. The main study behind ZMA was a 7-week study conducted in 2000 with test subjects consisting of NCAA football players. In this study, researchers gave ZMA supplements to the football players, who worked out using the standard “two a days” or, two workouts a day. At the end of the 7 weeks, researchers found a significant increase in the test subjects testosterone levels.
