DHEA
Friday, August 16th, 2019

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), also known as androstenolone, is one of the most abundant circulating steroids in humans. Once secreted into the blood stream, the body converts DHEA into several other hormones such as testosterone and estrogen. Because of this vital function, DHEA is sometimes referred to as the “mother of all hormones” or “parent hormone”. DHEA is produced in the adrenal glands (small glands located on top of each kidney), the gonads (sex glands), and the brain. ...READ MORE

Thyroid Hormone
Friday, August 16th, 2019

The thyroid gland is one of the largest endocrine glands in the body located in the lower part of the neck. It produces thyroid hormones which play a major role in energy and metabolism. The thyroid does this by controlling the speed of energy usage, protein production, and sensitivity of all hormones in the body. ...READ MORE

Progesterone
Friday, August 16th, 2019

Progesterone is a natural steroid found in much higher concentrations in women. This hormone belongs to the family of hormones known as progestogens and is involved in several bodily functions such as menstrual cycle, formation of the embryo, and pregnancy. Progesterone is produced and released by the ovaries and it works harmoniously with the hormone estrogen in maintaining fertility in women. ...READ MORE

Pregnenolone
Friday, August 16th, 2019

Pregnenolone is a steroid hormone produced primarily in the adrenal glands. Smaller amounts of pregnenolone are also produced in other organs such as the brain, skin, gonads, liver, and eyes. In the body, all hormones work in harmony to create a healthy balance. If you picture steroid hormones as a cascade, where one hormone has an impact on one another, pregnenolone would be at the top of the cascade. ...READ MORE

Cortisol
Friday, August 16th, 2019

Cortisol is a steroid hormone produced in the cortex of the adrenal glands. In times of stressful situations, the adrenal glands secrete the “stress hormone” cortisol as part of your coping mechanism. This hormone is also released when your blood sugar levels fall below normal in order to maintain homeostasis (balance). In the morning, cortisol levels are at its highest and gradually decline throughout the day.   ...READ MORE

Thymosin Beta
Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

Thymosin is a hormone secreted by the thymus gland. This powerful hormone serves a vital role in the training and development of a special type of white blood cell known as T-lymphocytes or T cells. In addition, thymosin also assists in the development of antibodies necessary for a strong immune system. The predominant form of thymosin known as thymosin beta 4 is an actin, a multi-functional protein that helps muscles and cells move. Thymosin beta 4 also plays a crucial role in tissue regeneration and protection. ...READ MORE

Thymosin Alpha
Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

Thymosin alpha 1 (T α 1) is a peptide (consists of two or more amino acids linked in a chain) that is naturally produced by the thymus gland. It plays an integral role in the maturation of immune system cells known as T-cells, which are vital in fighting harmful bacteria, fungi, or viruses. Thymosin alpha 1 also has anti-inflammatory and anti-fatigue properties and is given in patients with hepatitis B and C, malignant melanoma, liver cancer, drug-resistant tuberculosis, Lyme disease and Di George’s syndrome (immunodeficiency disease). ...READ MORE

Primobolan
Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

Primobolan is an anabolic steroid that allows users to build lean muscle mass, reduce body fat, enhance athletic performance, and boost cognitive function. This powerful nootropic is available in injectable form (Primobolan Depot or Methenolone enanthate) and in tablet form (ethyl Primobolan or Methenolone acetate). Primobolan is considered one of the safest anabolic steroids available on the market today. In fact, it has been used safely and effectively in the treatment of weight loss in children and premature infants without any adverse side effects. In addition, Primobolan is also prescribed for muscle wasting diseases, malnutrition, and osteoporosis.   ...READ MORE

Primobolan Side Effects and Medical Indications
Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

Primobolan is an anabolic steroid that is used to increase muscle mass and strength, reduce body fat percentage, enhance sports performance, and improve cognition. This powerful nootropic is made from dihydrotestosterone, a hormone which is the active form of testosterone and plays a major role in muscle and bone development, sex drive, and other important biological functions. To reap the full anabolic benefits of Primobolan, you can take it in the form of tablets (ethyl Primobolan or Methenolone acetate) or injections (Primobolan Depot or Methenolone enanthate). ...READ MORE

Mitochondrial ORF of the twelve S c (MOTS-c)
Wednesday, August 14th, 2019

The mitochondria are considered as the “powerhouses of cells”. They are organelles that work like the digestive system which ingests nutrients, breaks them down, and produces fuel or energy for the cells’ biological functions. The mitochondria also pass down information via several signaling molecules in order to enhance communication between each cell. Mitochondrial ORF of the twelve S c (MOTS-c) is one of the mitochondrial-derived peptides (MDPs) that plays an integral role in a wide array of metabolic functions such as glucose metabolism, muscle synthesis, and maintenance of metabolic homeostasis (balance). Interestingly, studies show that MOTS-c holds much potential as a therapeutic option for a multitude of medical conditions because of its unique ability to positively affect various bodily functions.    ...READ MORE
