2Tx by Max Muscle Nutrition is the newest arsenal in age-related hormonal support and testosterone amplification. 2Tx’s innovative and science-based formula is strategically designed to promote the powerful natural testosterone mechanisms within the body, releasing testosterone from binding transport proteins, optimizing steroid receptor binding capacity and blocking unwanted estrogen production.
Testosterone levels in men begin to decline starting around age 30 and continues to steadily decline year after year, with the steepest declines occurring in unbound (or free) testosterone. Lower levels of testosterone are a major risk factor for a multitude of metabolic and mental health conditions. Thankfully, 2Tx, which boasts a unique and powerful Testosterone Modulator Complex containing Testofen, Testafuranol and Maslinic Acid, can help.
Testofen is an effective and clinically proven ingredient shown to increase muscle mass, increase levels of free testosterone by 98 percent, increase libido, reduce abdominal fat and boost energy levels. A recently published randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study that tested sexual function, performance and libido levels in 60 healthy men (ages 21 to 50) over a six-week period found that Testofen produced a statistically significant positive change in all parameters of libido.
Testafuranol is a unique extract derived from a proprietary process from the Tribulus alatus plant. Recent research has demonstrated that these special sitosterols and steroidal saponins directly stimulate luteinizing hormone (LH) from the pituitary gland, thereby increasing testosterone production in the testes.
Maslinic Acid is a novel growth potentiating compound. Studies have shown that Maslinic Acid has a powerful anabolic effect by increasing whole body growth rate and increasing liver protein synthesis and nitrogen retention.
The Androgen Receptor Response Complex found in 2Tx contains L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate (LCLT) and Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA). Both ingredients are designed to enhance skeletal muscle cell testosterone binding for amplification of cell amplification responses. Several recent studies have shown that LCLT may up-regulate the androgen receptor and play an important role as an enhancer of testosterone’s response in muscle cells. ALA is a universal antioxidant and recent studies have shown ALA to be an effective cytoprotectant for testosterone and the Androgen Receptor.
The SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) and Anti-Aromatase Complex found in 2Tx contains three powerful, natural and evidence-based ingredients – all aimed at decreasing the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. These include Chrysin, Divanillytetraydrofuran, White Button Mushroom and Green Tea Leaf Standardized Extract. Finally, vitamin C has been added to prevent lipid peroxidation and to further support testosterone levels.
2Tx is based on natural ingredients and there are no synthetic drugs in the product, so an individual should not worry about testing positive for a drug test or any steroid or stimulant listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) list. 2Tx pairs well with Max Muscle’s MTX.
