- DHEA: dehydroepiandrosterone With all the media attention there has been on andro supplements, it seems DHEA rarely gets a mention anymore. That’s too bad because DHEA has some very unique effects and is a supplement I highly recommend.DHEA has been shown in numerous studies to increase testosterone, increase IGF-1 levels, reduce body fat, increase feeling of well being, lower cortisol levels, and even alter food cravings toward more lean healthy food.Though not in the spotlight, DHEA is a supplement that can’t be overlooked.
I recommend 100 mg. three times daily for men and 50 mg. twice daily for women.
- NAC: N-Acetyl Cysteine This is like a secret supplement that will soon emerge as one of the most effective lean mass stimulating supplements available. NAC is a precursor to glutathione – your body’s most potent antioxidant. Not only that, NAC appears to modulate glutamine reserves in the body.A very recent study showed just 400 milligrams of NAC had potent lean mass stimulating and fat metabolizing activity. The impetus for the study was the hypothesis that weight lifting in itself has catabolic effects. The study revealed that those that trained with weights and took a placebo actually lost muscle mass and gained body fat. Those that followed the same training program but supplemented with NAC just 3 days a week lost body fat and gained muscle mass.This study was so intriguing that we immediately reformulated Ny-Tro PRO-40 to include 400 milligrams of NAC per serving. This will no doubt really enhance Ny-Tro PRO-40’s already potent protein synthesizing effects.
This new study has sparked some serious interest in NAC and science behind cysteine levels in the body. There is evidence to suggest that doses of 1000 mg. could have an even more potent lean mass stimulating effect and it appears that the harder you train, not only the more you need NAC, but the more you’ll benefit from it as well.
I recommend 500 to 1000 mg 30 minutes after training.
