HMB (short for β-Hydroxy β-Methylbutyrate) - The amino acid leucine is metabolized by HMB, which, along with KIC, isovaleryl-CoA, and isocaproate, mediates its effects. Approximately 5% of dietary leucine is oxidized into HMB, and HMB appears to be the major metabolite of leucine that more effectively prevents muscle protein breakdown. The effect of HMB on muscle protein breakdown is significantly greater on a gram per gram basis than that of leucine, however it is less effective at inducing muscle protein synthesis than leucine. Because of this, HMB is marketed as an anticatabolic (meaning that it reduces muscle breakdown) rather than an anabolic (meaning that it increases muscle mass).
Turkesterone is a part of a class of compounds known as ecdysteroids (Polyhydroxylated Ketosteroids) that are structurally similar to androgens have been extensively studied as growth factors for plants and insects. They got their name (ecdy-) from the process of insect molting. There are several popular ecdysteroids, including 'ecdysone', 'ecdysterone', 'turkesterone', and '20-hydroxyecdysone'. These four are the most commonly studied ecdysteroid compounds, but each one shares the same general properties and effects, varying slightly in potency and strength. Turkesterone appears to be the most anabolic out of the bunch.
Reishi Mushroom Extract also known as Ganoderma lucidum - The lingzi mushroom is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine. It is also popular with Japanese and Korean medicine, and it is becoming increasingly popular in western medicine. In general, Ganoderma lucidum modulates the immune system through a variety of mechanisms. Generally, Ganoderma lucidum increases the number of active immune cells. Generally, the lingzi mushroom can reduce immune activity when the system is overstimulated, and bolster the immune system when it is weakened.
Tribulus Extract - As an Ayurvedic herb, Tribulus terrestris has been used for centuries to treat male virility and general vitality. The roots enhance libido without affecting testosterone, whereas the fruits protect organs.
Fenugreek Extract 100% - In Arabic regions and India, trigonella foenum-graecum, commonly called fenugreek, is used for enhancing libido and masculinity. Diabetes can also be treated with fenugreek by improving blood sugar metabolism. While the evidence for this claim is limited, it seems to be accurate that fenugreek tea enhances milk production for new mothers. Although fenugreek supplementation has been shown to enhance testosterone in humans, additional evidence indicates conflicting results, so further studies are needed to confirm this effect.
Chinese Smilax Extract - A tonic for male sexual energy, Smilax increases muscle mass and body strength.
Ashwagandha Extract - Known as the king of Ayurvedic herbs, Ashwagandha reduces stress and anxiety as well as improving physical performance, testosterone levels, and reproductive health.
